Good fit for the blues as an inside mid? Reckon he could be a Lyons type pick up, can't get a go but has the skills to play a strong role at AFL level.

I remember something that was said by someone senior at the club back when Mumford left to chase money at Sydney: "if someone wants to leave you show them the door". Said it was a pretty instrumental thing for club culture that every player is there because they want to be there and that anyone with a question in their head about an opportunity elsewhere is poison.

Might have left with Balme though because we sure as hell didn't do that with TK.

Just on that, I always think that in business. If people want to go, they go. Worst thing is to up the salary to much to try and keep them and their either unhappy or smug buggers having got you over a barrel.

With TK though I thought that wellsy was peeved that having said to him over and over again are you sure you can come then as soon as he arrived he was off.

I guess it's about finding a midfield that can make up for his lack of speed.

I think he can do well at the right club with the right midfield mix. Obviously that is not at Geelong but other clubs did have a look last year and none were interested.

He’s such a good user of the footy. I always felt comfortable when the footy is in his hands. Which teams would suit?

Hard to say because I don't know enough about other clubs and who they have in their reserves. But any club that is weak on the inside and needs someone to feed the ball out to the other mids or get that kick forward out of congestion. He has done pretty well in the VFL this year, I would expect someone will pick him since he will be free to a good home.

Hope not, their strike rate with trash to treasure type players is not good.

West Coast could really do with a 1st clearance/stoppage player like him.
We generally like versatile players too so I'm not so sure we'd chase. Shame because I think he has something significant to offer in the right system given time.

I could see him at Sydney.
Yes, they have salary cap issues, but he won't be expensive & will be ready to step in when Kennedy moves on.
Smaller ground at the SCG is also less of an issue for players who aren't quick.
