#45 Conor McKenna - ELITE


#2964

Why do you think he’s not going?

I am worried. As SMJ said, despite what we’d like to think, he doesn’t have an affinity or love for footy in general, much less EFC. He’s also hinted that it’s his life goal/dream to return to Tyrone and play in a flag back home.

Combined with his age/position/unique athletic profile I can see a club like Brisbane/St Kilda/whoever offering 50-100% more than us because it’s a fkn important position he plays, and there’ll be clubs with plenty of cap space to spare. Again, given the above, I can see him simply wanting to maximise his bank for his brief time in Australia.

I have NFI if he’s going or staying but I can absolutely see it happening far more than just about anyone else on our list.


#2965

He 100% is not going anywhere.


#2966

Can you elaborate at all?


#2967

100.00%

Hope that’s elaborate enough.


#2968

haha
I guess I mean - ‘can you add to that with regards to source or info quality’.


#2969

Some guy that had smashed 6 pints of Guinness.

Good enough for me.


#2970

Family friend. He’s basically getting comfortable away from home with us, he ain’t just gonna move teams and start over.


#2971

BakerWasAStar would be devastated…!!!

We would find him in an up turned golf cart in kew somewhere!


#2972

Ok, ta for that.
I hope you’re correct. A player told me that he thinks he’ll leave. Could be all talk.


#2973

If Mckenna leaves, then the entire list management staff should hot on his heels out the door as well.


#2974

I really, really like Connor but I’d take that in a heartbeat.


#2975

Hold on a sec. When we want someone we need to pay overs to pry someone away to fil a void. If saints are desperate for a running HBF then they’ll have to pay too.

If we want Kelly, we have to pay alot, same goes if they want conor


#2976

I agree but Ross, imo is a far, far superior player to McKenna. Now I really do rate conor, but he’s not worth Seb Ross and if that deal came up I’d do it in a heartbeat


#2977

With all due respect, we had the identical comment from Michael Hibberd’s Dad a day or two before he announced he wanted a trade. Can you blame us for being jittery?


#2978

Hibborts dad said he wasn’t going anywhere. I believe no one anymore!

Edit: what he said!


#2979

I’m not Hibberd’s dad.


#2980

Do you like potatoes?


#2981

No you’re not. Even if you were, it wouldn’t help in this instance!


#2982

Makes sense. He’s only just getting settled in a new country. Why would he want to start over again?


#2983

I might get reported for this clickbait!
