The word around Freo is that Connor has peeved off his teammates and the club reckons he may be on the table. This is despite him having signed a 3 year contract a couple of months ago.
Would be very sorry to lose Connor. Played out of position at HB by Lyon. V good inside talent.
Do we have a first bid?

Sheesh. Wouldn't mind him at Carlton, but we got too many fingers in the pie elsewhere.

Would think he will have plenty of suitors though, sounds like he must have done something really bad if the OP's Intel is true.

No 1 for Langdon Ex. Women > Blakely and Ed Langdon.

Blakely looked like he’d be really good last year then got injured. Been below average this year. Freo absolutely shouldn’t trade him, worth so much more to freo than he is to anyone else.

Would fit right into our midfield rotation, and if Fremantle want to turf him. However I wouldn't want to be paying a top 10 pick for him. Wouldn't mind handing over Brisbane's First Rounder though.

I recall GC and/or Brisbane were interested, but it looks like he's only "gettable" for Victorian clubs.

Carlton - Too much going on in this trade period to get it done perhaps.

Collingwood - Already got lots of good mids.

Essendon - definitely suitable

Geelong - How many mids do you need?

Hawks - not sure

Melbourne - Probably got enough players like him, but perhaps he could be paired with Langdon in a trade for pick 3?

North Melbourne - Could suit them

Richmond - Not sure they need anything really

St Kilda - Not sure they have many players like him, so he'd be appealing to them

Western Bulldogs - Could add something to their midfield but I think their mix is perfect as is

Perfect for us from all reports. Even comes with the Stringer “pushed out of the club” baggage. We like a good challenge.

Oh and we need all the help on the inside.

I don't think Blakely is just for Victoria club, Victoria media try to get Blakely on the cheap. I think going to SA or Sydney might be good for his career too. GC might not be the best place for him because he might call sickie and go surfing.

Lol he’s a spud

We don’t need any slow plodders
He's anything but slow. He'd be a bargain for any club that picks him up.

But rest assured, North Melbourne of all clubs wouldn't pick up a bloke leaving a club under these circumstances.

Gold Coast seems like the best fit.
