How important is the resurgence of Trengove?

Just heard talk on SEN that he has hurt his foot again whilst doing a fitness test for Richmond.

So Richmond don't want him now, we don't want him, but he is still a demon and once again injured.

Don't know how to feel about this situation.

Feel sad for him. The poor bastard got drafted by a club in a death spiral, got made captain well before his time, lost his speed and kicking depth, got seriously injured and then thought on the mend, has been shopped around by the club he showed uncommon loyalty to and yesterday finds out he is a long way from even training let alone playing footy.

He must be in a dark place.

It is a setback for the club but a disaster for Jack

This thread just went from theoretical to moot.

Unfortunately the answer to the OP has been delivered and its not to anyone's liking.

Trenners will stay a Demon..."This is obviously devastating news for Jack and we will seek further advice from surgeons for a plan moving forward so he can return to playing football. Josh Mahoney

if he doesnt play next year I hope we still offer him another contract.

You must be joking?!

On what grounds would you re sign a player who doesn't play a game next season?

As if this isn't bad enough you want to throw away more money on an extremely tenuous possibility that he might, just remotely might play again!

Nup I'm calling it!

Finished!

Poor bloke, shocking news for him and the club. Bang goes another early drfat pick who should be a midfield stalwart. The young fella must be devastated. I hope the club does everything possible to look after him regardless of the outcome for his foot.

Not quite the words Id choose but the vein unfortunately is not far off the mark, for mine.

Elsewhere Ive commented similar, in that I think he may be staring down the barrel as far as footy goes.

As a club we were prepared to play on without him by trading him. We will have to play on regardless without his input as he'll offer none unfortunately. You have to think if his card's not stamped yet , they're inking up in readiness.

You have to be at the top of your game to keep in it at this level. He's a fair few yards away from that. I'm not sure the club will be benelovent beyond sense and really, should it be ?

Sad news for Trenners as well as whatever deal we were going to try and do.

In terms of his injury I saw on his twitter feed people telling him to talk to Hird, suggesting he came back after 2 years out with same injury to play career best football? Dare to hope?

Hird had that Shane Carter guy helping him...yeah, the one who sourced TB4 for Danks from China.

Trenners would be best served staying as far away as HIrd as possible!!!

He had surgery on his foot in mid April, so about six months a go

So going by if he needs to have surgery on his foot again, he won't be running till at least mid April, and i'd imagine they'd be even more cautious this time so probably mid May.

From that point it's going to take at least 2 months probably 3 before he'd be ready to play a game

So probably if he plays next year it won't be till the last few rounds

If he manages to play a few games next year and his foot holds up, Great you resign him

But the main thing Trengove needs to do for us resign him is to be able to get through several weeks of full training without breaking down. If he can do that you offer him a one year contract or a 2 year contract with performance clauses for the 2nd year.

If he's still having some pain you delist him, but keep him training with you. Depending how he goes you look to pick him up in pre-season or rookie draft.

If his foot goes again, at best you offer him a rookie spot, otherwise offer him a coaching job

The only positive I can think of, is that I'm very confident that the Club will do exactly that.

This will be just the rocket Trengove needs.

There will be no complacency while he recovers and sits on the sidelines.

He'll have a burning desire to prove the doubters wrong, I think this will be the making of Jack.

Trenners main issue for mine has been a lack of aggression, so hopefully this situation brings it out on the field.

When has he ever been complacent whilst convalescing and recovering ? Hes done just about everything you can do to get yourself back into shape. It just hasnt healed properly. Not for want of any effort on his part.

Jack is already "made" he just needs to be fit for footy. This is where I don't particularly share the optimism of many here i just have that nagging suspicion he'll spend most of the next 6 months getting close...only for his foot to do it to him all over again.

I really wish him well. Id love season 2 version of JT out there. I just think it wont pan out that way.

I am not medical expert but Id have to think the more times it fails( his foot ) the less likely it gets to ever get back to %100.

He deserves better luck.

He could stay in house. Viv Michie did his Navicular in his first year at Freo and re injured the foot in the second year. Long time out and in a boot but he came back. Won a B&F at Peel playing just 16 games. He will be a big influence next season if given a chance.

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
