  • Latest Podcast: Peter Jackson Interview



Recommended Posts

Yeah so what? I made an observation on his style of play based on what we know about him

I never put a rating on him, I just compared him to other similar players in how he plays

Just helping you answer your own question, HH.

Keep dreaming boys. Time to move on to other targets this year and focus on Prestia again at the end of 2016.

Have you spoken to Mahoney? Viney? Roos? If you haven't then you can't guarantee a thing mate.

Imagine if Prestia broke his contract with the Suns, crossed to us at a high price in terms of his pay and the cost to the club and then struggled with his injury well into 2016?

We would be livid and the club would have massive egg on its face. Perhaps he's doing us and himself a big favour by seeing out his contract? In any event, he would have to pass a searching medical to get to the stage where a transfer would be seriously contemplated and maybe he's not 100% confident of that? Or, he simply believes that a contract's a contract and that's that.

Whatever way you look at it, it's time to move on and look elsewhere for that A Grade mid.

Adam Treloar?

I also found Roos' recent comments about Howe being a required player given that it is well known that, up until very recently at least, Howe's manager and the club have been in an absolute deadlock in relation to a new contract.

Suspect there's more to that one too.

Problem is that Prestia is not the one who does the trades. It is GC.

I find this wording curious. Are you suggesting there was indeed some form of set-back in our recruitment efforts but we'll continue to negotiate and haven't given up hope?

Prestia didn't even make the announcement.

It's just player manager posturing.

Schwab?

Don't know why you mentioned CS, when i was just adding Taylor, our recruiting officer, to the names you put down, as to who would know what is happening with recruiting.

Would have thought he is the most important.

Whats his manager supposed to say? "Yeah mate, dions off to the dees" the bloke is contracted and a jet, the suns were never going to be thrilled. Only a couple of weeks ago lachie henderson and jake carlisle said they didnt want to change clubs..

He could say no comment, or what Jeremy Howe's manager is saying...

Thanks for the reassurance, SirPR.

Must admit I didn't find the Manager at all convincing. All that he said (or was quoted to have said): has informed the Demons the top ball-winner will honour the final year of his contract with the Suns next season.

If Prestia was really committed to the GCS he could have added 'and we will be discussing another contract' etc.

If he isn't committed to GCS beyond next year he is better off going and they all move on.

No, the Manager wasn't convincing at all.

Will put my faith in you, Sir!

Or alternatively they could be trying to squeeze more money out of MFC.

Could be anything.

Howe is out of contract end of season, Prestia is signed on to the end of 2016. A little different.

Or Prestia is honouring the final year of his contract to see if the Suns improve under Eade without so many injuries.

Bottom line is that it's pretty clear he isn't going anywhere until the end of next season. If I were GC I'd be backing the club to bounce back next year and that will have a roll on effect for guys like Prestia to re-sign beyond 2016, so I can't see them trading him.

Nothing is pretty clear at this time of the year.

Carlton where very clear in their assertions that they would honour MM contract as well, things change, things stay the same.

In the end we will know more at the end of trade season...

Disappointing news given he fits the profile of the type of midfielder we are hoping to lure to the Dees next year.

Does this now make O'Meara or Aish our number 1 target?
