Who do we realistically target for a trade?

Yep. Best suggestion yet. Whitfield fills our biggest need. I don't think Shiel will leave them either, so they will remain in cap trouble. We don't have the picks though. The only plausible scenario is if Hogan is on the table. That would seem unlikely. Hogan seems settled  in at MFC according to the media.

Just you think it's safe to come out, along comes a thread on Gary Rohan.

Port will listen to offers for Wingard becuase they believe he will leave as free agent in search of a new challenge.

Ring em up and remind them we gave em Toumpas, Watts and Trengove so it's only fair we get Wingard in return. [censored] it throw in a second rounder that they can use on finding some more top talent from other clubs.

Go hard for Whitfield now. Another failed year for them. We're hopefully on the up and challenging for the next few years now. We play our home games at the MCG and have the only list that rivals GWS', and Whitfield is exactly the sort of player we lack. When Lewis goes at the end of 2019, Whitfield will be a great replacement off half back. We could play Whitfield on a wing or off half back, releasing Salem and/or Fritsch. I think Lever will allow Fritsch to play further up the ground anyway, but Whitfield's ball use and transition running would be the perfect addition to our cake.

He's contracted and we have bugger all draft picks, nor player's of worth that we would consider trading.

FA is our best bet for the next few years, imo.

Think we'd be in serious cap trouble too if we got him! He's a 800-900k minimum player. Every club in the league would want Whitfield. Absolute gun.

Yes, and the club has indicated it has cap space for a big fish

Based on our offer to GAFF I’d say we can make a fair offer to Whitfield without too much issue. The challenge would be how do we get him I a trade??

If we put in a half decent performance on Saturday, then we will have players banging down the door to play at Melbourne. We won't have to sound them out, they will sound us out.

Pretty handy footballer Mitch Wallis, particularly if he can get his head together

Probably, but performing in Perth will have top players recognising that we are  a genuine Top 4 side and flag certainty in years to come.

I like what they are doing up there. Pick up Neale and Wallis and they would worry a lot of teams next year. Their midfield will go from average to strong.

Who knows really. I've heard rumours about Tyson, Weid, Bugg and Kent all potentially looking at other options.

For me i'd look at trying our best to get 2nd and 3rd rounders for Garlett, Kent and Tyson if they want to go and trade the picks up. If the Weid rumours are true then that's your first round pick right there.

Agan i think it would be tough cap space wise because he is already on 800k and every victorian club will be in for him

Problem is that we would only get a third rounder for Kent. He would be worth so much more if he could stay fit. Do we bite the bullet and take the third? I would rather keep him.

I agree.  Why are the Cats chasing him? Bizarre in my opinion.

This is another weird one. Why top up with players and then trade out one of your more promising players? Surely you would try for another shot at the flag. Completely goes against what they did last year.

Chad Wingard is on his way to Victoria if the rumours are correct.

Can play, would be a very handy acquisition.

Looking for outside class, this guy has it in spades.

...and the bonus for him is he won't have to play against Viney if he picks us.

Wants a long contract on $1m a year.

Won't defend, chase or tackle. No thanks.

Gave me his father any day of the week. Mitch's ok but Steve Wallis was a very good player.

Why would any club keep scully over Kelly? Scully is gone. I hear he has an ongoing, high inflamed  wallet injury and would be a liability to any club that picks him though.

Kelly was pushing for an exit and only signed a bumper deal instead of the proposed long term deal. He wants to come home to Melbourne, Scully on the other hand is more being pushed out so GWS can keep their other stars just like Shiel was.
