Left field pickups in upcpming trade period

Postby parkeysainter » Wed 09 Aug 2017 8:25pm

Would be very very happy with J. Kelly to come to Saints. That should be our no 1 priority.

But its interesting to discuss who else we could gain that hasn't been discussed....someone left field.

I would trade for Breust from the Hawks. He is still only 26 and a proven goal kicker. We need someone like him just to finish off our forward line. Devon Smith is a very similar player and would be good a pickup too.

Obviously another midfielder too would be great. Leftfield trades coulde be - Issac Smith from Hawks? Aaron Hall from Suns? Jake Llyod from Swans?
Is there someone the Saints ars secretly targeting behind closed doors in a hope to gain an established player no one is talking about yet.

Will be an interesting trade period for us.

Harley Baltic from Freo would be a cheap pick up and has some potential

I think we need a KPD - Carlisle is fantastic, Brown started well but seems to be fading a bit and can really only go downhill next year you would think - and unfortunately Goddard is ??? At the moment - I think we are covering every other position pretty well - don't know who though ?

Have to agree think we may only get one more year out of Brown, would be nice to chase another key defender
And the president said " I did not have sex with that woman"
And our former president said " Football is like golf" 

Go Sainters !!!!!

Still a big fan of Kade Answerth. Nick Rippon from North Ballarat is having a decent season.

Breust from Hawks?
Why can't we develop our own players that we drafted?

We got Skunk, Hickey, Jake, Koby, Steelo, Savage, Baroose, etc because
other clubs can develop players better than we can.

It appears that our Development people are not doing their job properly.

Or is the Saints culture not conducive to getting the best out of young guys?
We need new assistant coaches.
The current ones are underperforming. "Player development" is a phrase that means nothing at Seaford.
Who has developed? Who has gone backwards this year?

hardly agree that skunk, steele and bruce were developed elsewhere. skunk and steele were young and bruce wasn't a forward.

Skunk- Swans Academy
Steelo- Canberra boy, GWS trained, he spent 2-3 years there.
Baroose- GWS defender and spent a few years there.
My point is, we didn't draft them as 17 year-olds. Another club did.

You've pretty much just said why we couldn't pick them up

Should be a very interesting off season!! I'm glad we're not making trade headlines just yet frankly. Makes me think... yeah things are bubbling away nicely behind the scenes.

I've stated in another thread I want Atley from North Melbourne. He has pace to burn and is a great user by foot. I'm sure he would be the most experienced player from his draft in a games played sence.

I heard a rumour Zac Dawson is a possible trade to Saints for Roberton...turns out Robbo misses Perth.

How about Riley Bonner?

He played a pretty nice game against us in the pre-season, can't break into the port side, good size, can play.

Yes Bonner would be good, but he is hardly the match winner we are after. I agree we should be looking for a fullback for the future, but there are a number of boys in the draft who may fit the bill. Clavarino, Naughton, Petty, a few others.
