I was at a friend's 50th on Saturday night and while there got chatting with her son, who went to school with Will Walker at Braaaaaaaarton Grammarrrrrr, and who's also best friends with Josh Kelly's sister.

Annnnyway, he said he's been hassling her for ages over Josh's future (he's a * supporter) and added that he was definitely extremely close to signing for North a couple of years ago.

He genuinely loves living in Sydney with his GWS mates nearby and his sister, while not knowing for sure at this stage, suspects he'll extend his stay up there this time around again BUT will one day return. That's her assumption anyway.

We shall see.

I'll bring the shovel, you bring the tarps. KC can provide us with an alibi.

Brilliant.

No hard feelings for him knocking us back when we needed him. At least we'll get to enjoy him at his best.

If he doesn’t come this time, it’s over. Priorities should move to other players. From what I understand there was a gentleman’s agreement that he would come at the end of his current contract. Even played a role in Scott getting an extension. If he burns us, he can get stuffed.

If not- love you Josh :rose:

Will Walker went to Melbourne High.

He may briefly have attended one of those schools like Brighton Grammar, Marcellin, Scotch, St Kevins, De La Salle etc where stupid children are sent by their parents in the hope that they'll at least make friends who can help them in their careers, but in the end, he ended up where young men of genuine class and intelligence are nurtured so they may bring their wisdom to the masses via social media trolling.

What would Simo have against Luke?
Simpson wasn't impressed at the way Donald was being gifted a job and influence at the club simply to ensure we'd get access to Luke.

Simmo obviously rates Luke - he did bid on him at 8 after all - but not Donald.

Simmo didn't like the idea that people were being given jobs or promoted etc on anything else other than talent.

Is what I have been told by Zondor at the Tender Touch as we rested and recuperated between staff shift rotations.

I was under the same assumption but it’s been refuted by many since, unfortunately

A lot of love for Tender Touch in here
I never liked the place,thought it was woeful
The terraced cottages on Dudley St , West Melbourne were far more delectable and accomodating

My bet is on him staying at GWS but signing for a further 2 years only. Gut feel only.

We'll hear about how North missed out again, regardless of whether we've made an offer or not, and the media will ignore the fact that it means his leaving at the end of 2021.

I was one and my source is legit. I was told there has never been an agreement in place however the club is (still) in a position to present a tasty package should he become available.
I am in a position to present a tasty package should Marion Cottilard become available too, but it is unlikely to eventuate.
