True but I was refering to John, MG also stated it as he heard it too NOT from john. .[/quote]

Yes but MG only said two people said it. He did not say that those 2 had inside knowledge though. Though it could just be chinese whispers.

Mark my words if he leaves he'll be a Saint.

Obviously I don't know your ITK from Adam and whether they are an actuall ITK or not.

It is just that my reading is that this all flared after Johns quote.


Obviously we all want it to be true. We will just have to wait and see.

The main thing that gives me hope now is that it is very late for Kelly to not have announced that he is staying. You would imagine that by now that GWS would have given their last firm offer re $ and contract length and so why the delay?

Also John just posted this just minutes ago.

So he seems increasingly confident that Kelly is coming.

To be fair on MG he has clearly stated its not from John. I agree its most likely one rumor but interesting it got so far.
We would have to believe that Josh (one of the best youngsters in the game) wants to be a saint, live in his home town AND at a discount cause he doesnt want major limelight which could be true but probably not. $6m in 6 years plus bonus' and living in home town playing with mates is prertty sweet. giving up 300k+ though. There is no way youd live bayside and play for north or carlton the commute is almost undoable in peak traffic which is getting ridiculous in melbourne. 2hr+ drive everyday in that traffic?? no thanks. So hes either moving to north melbourne or calton to play for em which doesnt make sense when he is looking at real estate on southside of town.

PEOPLE say he will stay at GWS play 2 years and get $$$s later which seems most logical for bank ALTHOUGH in2 years maybe too late to be the local saint that he might want to be?? Interesting times ahead. We can afford anyone now but in 2 years may have spent that money.

lots to consider. I think now or never for us. He stays at GWS its for bank and therefore in 2 years will play for anyone giving the best money -at that time probably carlton/north should be in that mix.

Jaxons, what are the chances the club/Kelly camp is leaking false info (Josh staying put) to alleviate any pressure while he & GWS have a finals campaign to think about? It's not out of the realm of possibility. Also, thoughts on Stringer to the Saints?

Posisble.

GWS are bang in the middle of a finals campaign and they are still genuine contenders if they can get their team selection right....

Until GWS are out of the Premiership race for 2017 - I dont think we should believe anything about JK... I think all options are still on the table.....

Myron I can tell you only what I know.
As of Tuesday I was categorically told he was not coming to Saints, and staying at GWS for 2 years.
Can it change, yes of course, however I know Paul Connors his manager is pushing hard for him to stay at GWS.
In the end it is Josh's call, but as of 5 days ago it was very very unlikely.
I have heard nothing about Stringer, but I can see an argument both ways.
On one hand, do we need a forward, when we really need quality mids, yet we need A graders desperately and when Stringer is on he is a match winner.

Plus while we need A Graders mids more, the pool of such players who are gettable is very small.

Whereas Stringer is evidently available.

One can only get from what what is available.

IF I was Josh id be going to te saints. We give him $1m when next year he gets what 700k to stay with giants?
And youve just had your best year. To think it would happen again and again is pretty forward thinking that gets you in trouble. One bad year and all you have is another year on 700k OR one bad year and all you have is 5 years at $1m in your home town?
Dont think its unreasoable to suggest we have a good deal on the table. unless of course he wants to live north of city. We surely have to have a chance.

I think the other thing for ppl to remember is that things change...

The reality is nothing is in cement until papers are or are not signed in trade week. I bet all manner of things are discussed and considered over the course of an extended period of time...
Heck, 2 months ago I was considering changing my own job, then I took a role as acting manager for a while, now I've decided to stay put.

Imagine being an ITK and feeding back that kind of drama

I can understand where Connors might be coming from.
Stay two more years. Get your Flag.

At the end of 2019 you will still only be 24.

At the point you can ask for a 7 year mega deal.

Dustin Martin is 26 years old and just signed a 7 year deal so Connors might be saying - what is the rush? You may end up with an even bigger deal in two years time.

Another interesting post tonight. Add your own dose of salt....


George, post: 52389367, member: 165246 wrote:The last update I got was on Friday night. Roo had spoken with Kelly and it's changed things. Kelly doesn't want to go to North because he doesn't want to be Judd v2.0 and carry an entire club by himself - North could've had both if Martin had signed with them. Fact that Hopper and Whitfield have both put pen to paper leaves GWS cash strapped if they weren't so already. If things change and he decided to remain with the Giants he'd be accepting an offer that would be significantly less than what we've proposed. These things change over and over again throughout a season, probably the reason you've heard conflicting views because it has been back and forth a bit. But he has agreed to terms. I believe we just need to facilitate a move with GWS now.

I heard JK is now coming.

The planets and stars are aligning to head back home to bayside Melbourne for him.

I know I would take the lovely bayside Melbourne over western Sydney. Total no brainer.

or flemington!!

LOL thats his choice ... a b or c.
GWS - 700k
North/Carl/Ess - $1.5m with pressure living on otherside of town virtually not even with family/friends anyway
Saints - Beautiful Sunny Moorabin on $1m - great pay with family/friends home town - without too much pressure of course pressure but $1.5m? he aint martin/dangerfield yet.

Getting Kelly for only $1m over the roos 1.5m would be satisfying.

Why would anyone with a brain want to live on the northside of Melbourne.

Bayside for me any and every day of the week.

Lygon Street is the furtherest north I ever venture and the only very very occasionally.

He might get more at the Giants, but the extra $$ is used for running costs on armour-plated car,

Yep. Western Sydney is a dump for the most part full of every bum you can think of. You wouldn't even travel on a train or go for dinner in a couple of suburbs out there.

For JK to move back home to the Sandy/bayside area is an easy choice I believe.

It is 7.4km from Port Melbourne to North's Arden St training facility. A 10 minutes drive.
