    I can well imagine that plenty of clubs have mentioned Aliir Aliir. I'm a bit surprised there hasn't been any whispers floating around about him.

    I certainly wasn't expecting Sam Murray to be the first rumoured trade

    Not sure how they are winning. Already have given up a first rounder for Smith who is hardly proven as a midfielder, and Essenodon have a number of small forward/mids. What happens if he never makes it as a midfielder...all they have done is added another player that they already had on their list. Stringer will be a good get but at what price? You'd think their 2018 first round selection will have to be involved somewhere. That's not even considering Saad.

    So whilst they get these 3, where have they improved their number 1 weakness and that is genuine inside ball winners. It was a worry that they had to go to Craig Bird a bit last year, that shows how little depth they have in that area.

    AA had some decent games but had some utterly awful ones in the reserves as well. Was dreadful (not alone) in the GF.

    He meant at the inside mid I think. The don’t have that big bodied midfielder.

    They traded in Smith purely as a midfielder which is a position he has not exclusively played in.

    Trade period has been humming along, what is it 0.6 trades a day in an 18 team comp? Awesome.

    They are saying he won't nominate a club till next week. That tells me Punts is on the money when he says Wells from Geelong is hedging his bets and seeing what he can throw at Melbourne once the Motlop deal is done. There is no Guarantees but I think Watts and Connors have told Geelong that is his choice and although he is no certainty of getting there they are prepared to bide their time waiting for Geelong to stump up.

    Cats will wait till the Motlop pick comes and see what they can get for Lang etc

    Watts would have choose port if he wanted to go interstate

    Cats and him would have a gentleman agreement

    OK... I was talking about his overall year - "Aliir was dreadful in the reserves" is just not the case.

    I wouldn't have rated him more than a 6 maybe 7 out of 10 across the year. Wasn't awful but his errors were putrid, some were comical at times.

    OK...

    so like i said, not "dreadful". a young player learning when and how to take on the game.

    e: soz, it appears I picked up "dreadful" this morning - OP actually said "rubbish"

    Personally I'm just not convinced he's a defender. Actually liked a few of his games when he played a bit further up the field

    At least you feel like this trade period might have a pulse.
