Goldstein re-signed a few days ago, leaving only one player out of contract, rookie Tom McKenzie.

Looks like North will be the first club to have their s**t together this year.
Seems early given all the back-office change at the club. Guess they will use 2020 to review the list

Small market club with a new coach, no recent success and not the most exciting list.

the wheel will turn when there’s more organic growth

Cornsey or Wallace mentioned the other day that Rhyce Shaw being asked to do the dual role of recruiting manager and coach at the moment hurts North's chances of luring players to the club. It perhaps has a grain of truth to it.

yeah, I did see that too. Not ideal for a professional outfit but it is what it is

All of those things relate to us as well though lol
and it has Hill and Dougal Howard as the only players of some note wanting to come to you.

Remembering north have had pittard, Polec, Williams come in. St kilda will get Ryder, Zak Jones and maybe Sam Gray. Big whoop. St kilda isn’t much better.

Who else is up for trade in this trading period of "some note"? Kelly, who was always going to move West, and Daniher I believe isn't actually going to be traded. Of course Papley and co. would be nice, but you can't trade for them all. So it seems they have ticked the boxes.

We kind of got screwed with the Rawlings pick up as GM, as WCE are holding him to his contract until December 1st due to supposed concerns over draft IP, which is a crock of a reason.

Yeah that does seem a bit petty by the Eagles, especially as Adam Simpson was a club great of The Shinboners.

Real head scratcher that North keep getting turned down for recruits.
Do they not sell the project they're on well enough?
Not really a head scratcher, we were priced out for Papley and Howard by competiting clubs, in particular the latter. North have kept pretty quiet this year about trades. We barred Barrett from the club last year, who was leaking club information to media contemporaries.

Previous years, North went for the absolute cream of the comp and established stars and just fell short. So did other clubs.

No list manager or ceo (not that the ceo does much during this period but still)

No footy boss til December 1

Essentially just Rhyce at the wheel for us during this trade period

Shot ourselves in the foot

Out of contract next year Cameron has resisted mega offers from both Western Australian teams to sign a 2-year extension.

Good news for North because he's showed some game-breaking moments in 2019 - including setting up the win against Richmond with an explosive first quarter and burying half of their team into the ground.
