Season 2024 - St Kilda

I would be happy to trade 2 good - average players to saints for Max King.

Essendon great Matthew Lloyd, who coached King and his twin brother Ben at Haileybury College, told AFL.com.au on Monday that King should pursue rival options.

“I think it’d be a great chat for both St Kilda and Max to have at the end of the year, whether they think it’d be best for him to part company with them,” Lloyd said on AFL.com.au’s Access All Areas.

Every club has won a premiership since Carlton last saluted in 1995, aside from Fremantle, the two expansion clubs – Gold Coast and Greater Western Sydney – and St Kilda. The wait continues for flag No.2.

I still can’t believe stk blocked him getting 1:1 training with Lloyd when he very clearly would have benefitted from it

He is pretty similar to wright. Not the type of key forward we need imo

Really?
We already have excess tall / medium forwards.
2MP, Langford, Caddy and Jones.
That’s ignoring Stringer.
How do you fit those 4 plus Max King? Even if you ignore Jones somehow, it’s still 4 talls, 2 smalls in the forward line. Minimal opportunity to play a resting ruck, limited opportunity for resting midfielders and we really only have the other wing position to play midfielders through.

Unless we move a few of our other tall forwards, I wouldn’t adding to the mix we currently have.

I’d much rather target a small forward and/or half back. Those are far more pressing (geddit?) issues.

In what way? Genuine question as I don’t see much of him outside his games vs. us.

He seems to have a bit of agro/intensity/main man syndrome in him which I like and think we need.

Would love for us to have a crack at Max King.

Always said that the issue with 2MP is he isn’t a genuine No1 forward. Doesn’t use his body well and struggles with contested marks. You see him dominating smaller backs.

King would get the No1 defender, Langers and 2MP would get 2 and 3.

We would improve so much bringing him in.

Both 2m tall, both similar build, both have one 50 goal season to their name (ironically both in 2022), both have had injury trouble and both are useless more often than not

Playing under Ross the Boss isn’t the best place for kicking goals. with defensive first mentality.

If we picked up King, we would trade 2MP out. They would both be vying for the same position.

Who are both of those players?

Might be an interesting straight swap. Personally, underwhelmed by both
