Would anybody pick him up if he was delisted? That's a not foolproof but pretty accurate test for the value of keeping someone on the list rather than having another swing at the draft
Probably not is my guess. Also why I'd be shocked if Menzel gets re-signed.

Seems like alot of list cloggers ooc next year. Only Hewitt really needs tying up. JPK maybe an extra year but I'm sure that will be a late call. Everyone else meh

Next year will be brutal like this year. Might hold onto a few cheapies like Ling.

We have done a very good job of getting the core group of players on longer term contracts, so the list of guys coming off contract next season is almost entirely players with their careers on the line - a host of recycled players, long term rookie listers, and a few guys that have been in the system long enough by the end of the season to have staked their claim to be in the best 28. Can definitely see a big group getting moved on.

Yeah agree. I'm the most positive about our list I have been for years, in that the right players have the long term contracts and those on the wane have the shortest to run. While our list isnt strong, at least it is structured right.

Not sure why long term contacts makes you feel at ease, clearly the players don't feel like a long term contract means anything other than getting paid

I think of the guys in the 2020 list the most crucial to me is Hewy. I think JPK is a safe signature and I'd also love to see Melican and Ronke both sign on early in the year. But ultimately, Hewy is a gun and deserves a solid contract offer from the club IMO. Don't lowball him and lose him... He is important and deserving of that next jump in contract IMO.

That next year (2021) could potentially be a huge year. Parker with his (more than likely) last big long term contract offer would be one to keep an eye on if enough money comes calling from outside the club...

Sorry to intrude but does anyone know who has been upgraded from the Rookie list to senior list for 2020? As far as I can see the Sydney senior list is at 37 which includes Ronke being upgraded which I assume has occurred.
My understanding is that the senior list needs to be a minimum of 38 plus rookies. Does anyone know who else has been upgraded for next season?

2020 is a potentially huge year for turnover. Almost all of the senior listed players with contracts expiring are playing for their spots on the list:

Kaiden Brand
Zac Foot
Ryan Clarke
Robbie Fox
Matthew Ling
Sam Gray
Jackson Thurlow
Riley Stoddart
Lewis Melican
Ben Ronke

Any of those players who are not cemented in the Swans best 28 at the end of the season should be delisted or traded.

Brand, Gray, Clarke, Melican, and Ronke have played the most senior football but I don't think any of them are cemented yet (Brand and Gray may do so quickly if they have been identified for immediate game time - but so was Thurlow). The others have a lot of work to do

You also have to add to that the list of rookies who are on a second or even third year now: Reynolds, Wicks, Amartey, Knoll, McLean and Bell (though there was that social media post implying he already had a contract for 2021).

Careers on the line for a significant part of the list.

Reviewing the list on page 1 I see Gray and Brand are on one year contracts. It seems odd to me, especially when we signed L. Taylor for 3 years.
The Club announcement does not say anything and only says that they will play in 2020, so I get it that Robbieando has them on page 1 at 2020 only.
Does anyone know any further?
This article suggests Gray at multi years:

There is some stuff on the Port board that Gray was offered one year by Port and he wanted more.
Best I can find is this:

It is firewalled, but the Google precis is that he signed for two years.

Can't find anything for Brand, but I'd expect two years also.

Basically when the length kf the contract is not stated they get listed as 1 year only.

Id like to see players contracts made public.

Hewett out of contract is interesting in my opinion. Think Longmire is heading in a different direction with his midfield makeup.
