And yet we were supposedly in the conversations for O’Meara and now Kelly.
The reality is we were/are unable to get these deals completed.
Now is it the $$$? Possibly.
Perhaps similar to Jaeger, players want to live in the east and don’t want to travel to the west where the club is located.
I can’t imagine gun mids are all that enthused about propping up the worst midfield in the league either. These players we are chasing aren’t after midfield time, they are after success, so us being shithouse in the middle is not really a selling point.
If Xavier is as smart as he appears, he would already have the review well underway.
If Disco wants to hang his hat on his ‘draft and develop’ mantra then he and the club need to get off their arses and deal their way up the draft order.
Yet another aspect of list management that seems to have been a foreign concept for the last 15 years.
Keep going like this and watch north, carlton, saints and melbourne shoot straight past us in the near future.
