Looks good in the VFL with 5.4 in round 1 and is completely out of favour in AFL level with the coach preferring Bruce.

Never been good at AFL level, but could he finally be ready? Would cost a bag of chips, no chance the doggies get anything worthwhile for him.

Might need to change the Title of the Thread because he is contracted till 2022
If a team came knocking and Josh wanted to move on I doubt we'd stand in his way.
He's a bit like Ben Brown lite - often covers more kms than any other player on the paddock. More a flanker in a KPP body but he's AFL standard.

Cant see any club trading for him but maybe a team like Collingwood might give him a chance as a Rookie if delisted

Hes a different player atm. Expecting him to do well when he replaces Timmy for a few weeks. Given the new rules as well are perfect for his game I think clubs would be mad not to try get him. Contracted another year too so dont think we will just give him away

Reminds me so much of Brodie Miocek (sp??) from the Pies.

Lol what? He's played 2 games since 2019.

He is nothing until he proves it at AFL level. VFL form means nothing.

He’s honestly not that bad. Could see him at Richmond with Jack on the way out to be honest.
Correct, he kicked 24 goals in 14 games to finish 2019 when we made the finals. He’s a solid enough player and I’ve enough recently to suggest his physicality has made a step forward. I could easily see him 35-40 goals in a lot of teams.

Mihocek is an honest footballer, can't imagine he'd ever drop his head. I like him.

Schache is taller, has a better tank, is more naturally talented but isn't as competitive as Mihocek and when Josh goes missing, he goes missing badly.
