The Jack Trengove is BACK Thread

Recommended Posts

I put this in another thread but can go here to. 

This is where Trengove can show he still has it if he gets a call up. 

He has been totally committed to rehab and playing in the vfl working on his game and NOT been off drinking with some other players and after what he has been through who could blame him if he did. 

He has the leadership skills which has been said on numerous occasions in the vfl reports and can play a midfield role with Oliver. 

Get him in and we will finally know if he is back to AFL level or not after his long term injury.

We need to know before the end of the season. 

Imo he can still play at afl level and I hope he gets and takes the opportunity to show it. 

 

Unfortunately I suspect the football department already know about his capabilities and have made their decision

I hope u r wrong mydee and there have been occasions where a player is selected and exceeds the coaches expectations. 

This may be that time. 

No point letting him rot in the vfl when he is playing well and consistently when there are soi many injuries.

You might be right, but on the flip they side they may value his experience and leadership in this instance.  We've lost plenty of that through Viney and Jones and they may feel what he can bring to the side is too valuable to ignore.

I hope I am too and there are many great stories of comebacks in sport Rassmussen of Essendon and Roughnead of Hawthorn are two great examples. But they are few and far between

The heart of our contested ball-winning brigade has been torn out with Jones, Viney and probably Tyson gone.  Oliver and Petracca can't do the heavy lifting on their own.  To me this looks like the ideal time for Trengove to step in and take over as the inside ball-winner.  His lack of pace won't be a huge factor for that.  Hopefully he still has the quick thinking and skills he displayed when drafted. 

We could do a lot worse than bringing him in to fill the role.

Still trying to get passed the fact that White was elevated to play Sydney ahead of him.  Doubt he will play again for the mfc which upsets me somewhat

Totally agree and I couldn't believe White is ahead of Trenners.

I never take much notice of Casey reports and less so when Trengove is involved.

Some posters can't reference Trengove without talking about his pace.  It's just inbuilt.  "I'lll mention how Trengove is going, but I  must highlight his lack of pace".  I no longer take any notice.

We all know he's not fleet of foot and he'll probably get delisted at year's end, but if he's good enough he's quick enough.  If he's not good enough he's gone.

Trengove is too slow....

 

too soon?

I must admit I'm not as up on everything in and around the club but White coming in was a surprise because I hadn't really heard of him bang down the door of selection. 

Trenners sounds like he's just been going about his business with every  bit the professionalism you'd expect. But if he's ever going to get one last crack at it, surely it's now. Play him across half back in Vinces/Lewis's role with stints in the middle, we've given him the extra year, let's see what he's got. 

As someone pointed out on this thread, the selection committee seemed to have tunnel vision when it came to Weids vs Pedders, look how that's turned out. 

Give him a go.

Personally, I would love to see Jack Trengove get a run this week? :lol:

 

Unfortunately, he needs to truly earn a call up. We cannot gift him a spot unless we have totally run out of options.

 

My one concern is his speed. I remember people mentioning that he is very slow and hasn't put together enough quality games in a row in the VFL.

 

 

I sincerely think it would be fantastic for Jack Trengove to be able to force his way back into the Demons' side. Especially, with the current dire injury toll 

 

I have fond memories of Jack because he was a shining light during the dark days of the Bailey and Neeld eras from 2009 until 2013. The foot injury that Jack sustained was a cruel blow. Plus many of us seem to forget that he was a number 2# AFL draft pick and still has a huge amount of talent.

It would be wonderful to see him out there again playing for the Melbourne Football Club on a regular basis.

He was certainly too young to be made Co-Captain of the Melbourne Demons (same with Jack Grimes).

 

As sad as it seems, if Jack Trengove cannot break his way into the Demons's side soon then I fear he will be traded or even just delisted. :(

 

I wish Jack Trengove all the best and I genuinely hope to see him out there playing for the Demons in the AFL.

Nothing would make me happier than to see Jack play well in the senior side and get a chance to play finals. If anyone who deserves some fortune on his side it is definitely Jack.

 

 

I hope Jack (or his family and friends) reads this letter so that he knows that we are all thinking about him and want him to have success with the Demons.

It would be wonderful to see Jack achieving his full potential at the Melbourne Football Club.

 

Good luck and never give up Jack Trengove! :D

IF he cant get a game with our entire engine room out injured then he won't ever play for us again.  Right now we have a huge opening for him to step in and play a role that doesn't require burst pace so much as endurance and hardness.  It's more or less his ideal position.

Jones, Viney, Salem and Tyson injured, Bugg out, Brayshaw carefully managed, Oliver looking a little tired. Lewis not in hot form and most of the rest of our midfield rotation being part-timers there. Plus multiple other options under a bit of a cloud for breaking team rules.

I'd say we need every possible competent midfield option we can bring in.

No harm opening the possibility of fairytale, either. "Forgotten ex captain steadies the ship in hardworking comeback game".

IMO we could do far worse than call him up to play in the guts this weekend.

Always going to have a soft spot for Trenners!

At some stage, you would think that he should play, to at least show if he can still compete at afl level. Given the loss of a lot of leadership and midfield talent due to injury, you would think this may be the week. I hope he gets back and does well.

I don't know why we gave him a 1 year contract if we are not going to play him when everyone else is injured. He is experienced, he has a good build. Yes he is slow, blah blah blah, but if he can play in the guts to help out Trac and Oliver, I don't see why you wouldn't give him a game or two until at least Tyson is back.

Yes!

From another thread

In that post Jones says JT is in consideration.  Would hope he would not be kidding about that.  To see Hogan and Trengove on the G would be special and would give a real fillip to fans.

It's got me stuffed also.. but that said we have an odd history of writing contracts.

The way Roos and now Goody coach is they bring a player in and give him a role. So for Jack to come in what role would they want him to play? Of late he has been playing half back at Casey and to quote Plapp, "Learning a new role". I don't think we need another half back (quarterback) at the moment. If Hogan returns I expect we will play one less mid anyway.

On this basis I would be pleasantly surprised if Jack is selected

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place.

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for.

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up.

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range
