The Jack Trengove is BACK Thread

Recommended Posts

Interesting to see what position he may play if he does return to fitness. Anyone think he would be a good candidate to play off a half back flank? We know he works hard and generally used to use the ball well and make good decisions. I think playing him off the back flank will take some pressure off him compared to joining the midfield rotations.

For what it is worth, I heard from a person familiar with this type of injury, that the issue now for Jack now won't be running but kicking. As in there is a fair chance or re injury once he starts kicking again.

The injury was to his left foot - not his kicking foot...

CLark did the Lisenfranc bone not the navicular, Not sure what that means in terms of recovery but they were different.

Not a lot really. Any time you are off your feet for an extended period, away from playing footy for even longer and likely running differently when you get back means you are a big chance to do soft tissue injuries. Part of the reason to have Trenners get such a big running base under him now would be to hopefully condition his leg muscles, but nothing prepares you for footy conditioning.

Has Jack done any sprint or burst running? How is his explosiveness?

No, I suspect (without a shred of evidence) he's doing a hell of a lot of lighter distance running to avoid the soft tissue injuries that might come after a marathon lay-off with significant muscle degeneration (Hello Mitch )

I suspect this is the case. Even if everything goes perfectly I don't think we'll be considering him for seniors until later in the season. Go softly now to give him the best chance of being there when we need him in a few years.

Great thread idea McQueen.

I really rate Trengove for his resilience and ambitious attitude. He's hungry to play again and I know I'll be there the day he gets back.

With that said I'm really hoping he can have that day in the sun for the Dees, and further become a consistently selected best 22 player in a team pushing for a premiership.

I'll re-find and upload a particular shot from his instagram or twitter I have in mind.

I'll definitely make the journey over from WA to watch him play in his first game back.

I doubt that it'll get the media focus like the Cousins return did but nevertheless it'll be a very special day that as many Demons as possible should get too.

Are you mental? The photo on the right shows how much he has progressed from the photo on the left.

Yeah might be a bit mental, but yes I understood the pic on the right is the most current. But if you look closely, there is still some muscle wastage! on the pic on the right!

And guess what smarties, I understand the need for muscle build up, but if this creates more bulk might that create more pressure on the injury?? This needs to be carfully monitored!

Just a thought!

'Lisfranc' is an injury named after Napoleon's chief medical officer who saw a spate of midfoot dislocations from soldiers falling off their horses whilst the foot stayed in the stirrup...ouch. It isn't a bone. The navicular is a bone, effectively the keystone of the foot as a weightbearing structure. It is prone to avascular necrosis (death from lack of blood supply) following fracture (stress or otherwise), and is historically problematic as we have seen with Jack Trengove. If he's running at full speed, the signs are very good. The next biggest issue becomes accumulated load, that being 2 hours of game time. Added issues are landing onto the foot and jumping off it. Kicking with it will not be a problem, and weightbearing on it whilst kicking with the other is just an extension of running forces.

When I broke a leg it didn't take that long to waste ...scary really.. The leg returns.. I wouldn't be at all concerned with the leg....it;s the foot.

If can get back to full loading and such...well...that's a win for Jack...and maybe for us.

So we don't really know much then.

IMO forget Jack for the first half of 2016 he will not contribute at AFL level before mid season ( assuming all goes well with his foot ).

Even after that he will have to get a spot in the side.

All I hope for next year is for him to prove his body can go the distance and prove he deserves a spot on the 2017 list.

Good luck JT you deserve a bit.

Thanks for the prognosis. I did say bone in error! Excellent to hear that the prospects are on the improve.

Well, I had quite a few doubts before, but after seeing this picture I would have to say NO!

I know that after surgery you do have muscle wastage, but sheeit the lack of body around the Gastroc, is gee, cause for alarm!

If he's not yet kickin a footy, I reckon things don't look too bright!

Is this your professional opinion?

Why rush Jack into kicking balls when you don't have to? Give the foot as much time to rest and repair as possible.

I would expect him to be kicking come New Years.

This would allow him 4 months of ball work to get himself ready for the season.

An additional 4 months (on top of the nearly 18 months) is plenty of time for him to be ready for competitive football.

I expect Jack to be ready to play for Casey round 1.

If he strings 4-5 matches without complications then he would be a lock in our top 22.

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
