A bit of a discussion on the midfield.
At this point in time we have many midfielders which are at least reliable enough to compete and/or do a job:
Stretch, Grimes, Bugg, Harmes, Petracca, Melksham, Kennedy, MJones, NJones, Viney, Trengove, Tyson, Oliver, Vince, Michie, Neal-Bullen, Brayshaw, Newton and vandenBerg.
That is 19 guys that can run through the mids, essentially half our team. Yes, a few guys will be played forward or back to fit into the team, but reality is they are midfielders and have played midfield at some point. We have successfully bolstered our midfield which was the plan a few years ago.
But, do we have too many that some will have to moved on at the end of the year and is it hurting our other lines? Who will get the chop? Who is trade bait? If we trade, what will it be for?
