Trade Discussion 2018/19 - I am Coniglio, I need TPP for my Bunghole!


#7669

Sure, but this is not really revolutionary.

We’ve got 10 guys on our list from other clubs.

And plenty of them were cheap as chips (FA, DFA, cheap trade, re-draft) - Dea, Stewart, SMack, Hartley. Etc etc. Plus Leuie, Jimmy Gwilt, Josh Green, Kelly, Bird all played useful footy.


#7670

Swap Laverde with any of our 3-4 year brigade. I’m raising the general concept, not lining up a specific player. This is the only way I see us getting back into the first round, if nobody is interested then we take our second rounders to the draft.


#7671

Francis, Parish and McGath would get the required interest. But…


#7673

Jamie Elliott (26) - He has returned well. And if we play fantasia up the ground, he could play forward.
Or at least if we gave him an offer, might force pies hand to pay a higher price $$
Jack NEwnes Saints (26)
Tom Liberatore - He has been good this season, we could have went after him.

IF Dave Myers got poached? What compensation do you think we would receive?


#7674

Hugh Greenwood, not a free agent but out of contract.

Huge midfielder. Tackles fkg hard, kicks goals.

Hasn’t been in the side this year, not sure if injured?


#7675

Hes an odd one, he was good last year.
But Adelaides selections have been a bit odd. even leaving Gibbs out of the side.
Greenwood is a bit like Devon smith, big engine, good runner and hard tackler, probably lacks some polish. But would be nice to add another tasmanian to the side.
he could fill a role. Just depends if you would prefer Mutch/Clarke/Myers/Mynott playing or this guy.

#7677

The only thing that would prompt Francis to return is if he can’t get a game with us.

Doesn’t matter how many times the whole returning to Adelaide thing is shouted down, it keeps popping up.


#7678

If he can’t get a game with us then he’ll be worth pennies on the dollar come trade time anyway.


#7679

I know I was the one arguing value down earlier. But in this case Francis wouldn’t be worth pennies. Totally different ball game as a) he’s a key position player and b) kept out by Hooker and Hurley. He’d be very desirable to both Adelaide and port.

I wouldn’t trade him though, genuine star talent.


#7680

Nor would I with both Hurley and Hooker 29-30.


#7681

Agree 100%. I think both of them would give up their first round pick for him.

I’m not saying I want us to trade him, because I really don’t. I do think there are signs that he could end up going back to SA.

If it did happen I wouldn’t say “Fark, didn’t see that coming”.


#7682

If there’s ever an AFL club in Loxton North, or even renmark, I reckon he’d be straight back home like a shot.

But where he’s from is closer to Mildura than Adelaide.


#7684

Would we consider a swap with francis?


#7685

Doesn’t he have siblings living in Adelaide though?


#7686

If you don’t hunt the Clugg, you don’t get the Clugg.

The Clugg would have been just perfect for us today.

If you have to pay overs, then so be it.

Beat the Lions at their own game.


#7687

we need a taranto more than a clug or mcgrath.


#7688

we will not be getting any names this year, we don’t have the picks.


#7689

One more gun mid (but id take 2 if gettable) and even another tough mongrel or moneyball type mid and well be flag contenders. Close now but this would enable us to beat up on teams


#7690

We just came within a kick of the best side in the comp.

And we have some handy talent running around in the 2s.
