I think we need to put more focus on recruiting good kicks, we have far to many below average kicks in our side.
Agree defensively.We should develop a tagger.I know we use Graham in a negative role but aerobically he can easily be shaken.I reckon that’s a consideration when trading for established midfielders. We need to look at some additional “2 way runners” who work as hard defensively as offensively. At the moment we have Lambert who works hard defensively and lots of attacking mids
We need inside midfield help in 2020 not in 2021.That’d be a win for them but we’d have to trade pick/s and or players.
Wait 12 months and get him for zilch.
I’m really keen to go to the draft again this year and continue to build that inside midfield similar to last year
Agreed but at what cost ? Crows hold the whip hand so do we pay overs ? Push our cap to the brink and weaken our draft position.We need inside midfield help in 2020 not in 2021.
He'll no doubt crack in, but he isn't exactly a big bull inside midfielder, like Crouch is. Reckon this is where we need the likes of Ross RCD & Vlastuin to step up if we can't land a ready made one.We have one in our midst.
Reckon we can develop SS over the summer into a contested mid.
He’s just come out and said in an article in the Age that he wants to stay at Collingwood, so unless there’s some catastrophic breakdown in his relationship with the club I don’t think he’s in danger of leaving. As for what Collingwood would want if he did leave? I’d say they’d be asking a fair bit. Derek Hine said at a members meeting last year to one of the posters on our board that he rates Sier as the best young talent we have, ahead of DeGoey and Stephenson. Personally I wouldn’t want to trade him for anything. My opinion is that he’ll be our best mid within a couple of years. His vision in the contest and handballing are already close to the best at the club.Any chance of him leaving? & for what round draft pick?
Much different player to degoey if he develops properly something like Jobe Watson is how I see him , fair way to go , hope to see signs after another pre seasonHow’s RCD developing? I remember Knightmare saying he could become DeGoey-like if developed right in his draft year.
people keep saying we are okay for mids but are we really.We certainly lack for bigger mids in fact we lack a whole pile of medium sized players.
I count 12 genuine mediums on the list.
Townsend, Grigg, Markov, Menadue. Grigg has already retired and i personally have a line though the other three.
That leaves just 8 medium sized players
Defenders - Pickett, Vlastuin Turner.
Mids- Martin, Cotchin, RCD,Ross.
Fwd - Caddy some will say hes a mid either way it neither here nor there because there are so few mediums on the list.Three are 18/19y0 and one is a 27yo rookie who hasnt played a game.
Contrast that with the number of smalls a whopping 19 getting close to half the list and the list is so out of balance it aint funny.
Personally id be looking to cut/trade say half a dozen smalls and target more medium and tall players.
He's a midfielder.... and been pushed to half back this season. Never a good sign.Wrote at the start of the year, before the Rance injury, we need a KPD.
Cerra is out of contract end of 2021.
He would only be 21.
For starters we can't afford a ready made one ala crouch.Who else is there?Sier? for sure right age bracket but won't come cheap to prize away from the Pies and no doubt he'll get better offers $ wise from other clubs.Secondly Stack being Stack he is already a hard nut.Just need to teach him the finer details of becoming a inside mid,Agree keep developing Ross & Rcd into replacing the likes of Cotch & Dusty in the middle.He'll no doubt crack in, but he isn't exactly a big bull inside midfielder, like Crouch is. Reckon this is where we need the likes of Ross RCD & Vlastuin to step up if we can't land a ready made one.
Fair enough mate.You seem him more than i do,Just going on what Mathew lloyd(i think) said a few weeks back why he wasn't getting a game.Sorry for the intrusion, but there’s no issue with Sier’s defensive game. Runs both ways and averages 5 tackles a game. Had a team high 9 yesterday.
