He's too good to not be on a list
I remember when we got him that the Port board was genuine in hoping that he could cement his place on our list, there was no ill-will, nothing but praise.
The Port board also shared the sentiment that he had never been given a proper extended go when others had been given more of an undeserved run.

I thought he did enough last season to work his way into the best 22. Maybe he came out due to team balance.
I am hoping we can find a place for him, I thought he showed a lot last game - imagine what he could do with a decent run at it.
Real X factor also, and he kicked with precision. He also got the ball rolling in setting up the first point and first goal.

He’s a big bodies mid who keeps getting played at half forward coz he can do that if needed, but I’d like to see him played in the middle more often. His run to receive from NN in the wafl two weeks ago was Shueyesque. :)

If everyone is fit and we’re going to play two rucks, then Ah Chee in for Allen isn’t the worst thing. Gives us a marking target up forward while giving more run. That’s the role he should be aiming for.

Archie looked like he belonged.

How on earth do we make our three compulsory list changes? I know Mutimer is on 3 times as much any other player in the comp ($7 mill per season), but he doesn’t count as 3 changes at end of season.

I've liked the look of him every game he's played.

Hopefully now he gets so string together consecutive matches so he can have a crack at cementing his spot.

Everyone loves the man, but it's very difficult to tell whether
1) his versatility is his own worst enemy
2) the lack of definitiveness from his coaches as to what his exact role is in the side leads to a self-fulfilling prophecy
3) he's just that little bit behind his competition for his most suited role as an inside mid at both clubs - ie. couldn't justify playing him as an inside mid ahead of Boak, Wines, Ebert in the day at Port and nor at West Coast with Yeo, Shuey, Redden and not quite dynamic enough to justify playing as a specialist forward either

Genuinely feel he could carve out a decade plus career as a bit part / second fiddle depth specialist as he is someone any club would like on their list, but for any of the above reasons he just hasn't been able to nail down a consistent spot in the seniors despite never letting anyone down and continually exhibiting such potential.

He’s out apparently. Heard Simmo talking on the radio. I think it’s some sort of injury?
Poor timing to pick up a injury for AhChee ..
Just makes it too easy for MC to rule out this week even though with a legend like Kennedy coming back didn’t really matter..
