Serong has impressed so far and I reckon Freo have nailed a selection there, those short stocky players who pick up the tempo early in their careers often go on to be consistently good midfielders.
But in order to get English you haven’t provided an answer, Mcarthy, Taberner, Cox and Hogan wouldn’t raise a speck of interest from the Bulldogs for him. Neither Darcy at the moment, I reckon he has shown bugger all so far and might not be much upside left with him. Young Ruckmen generally improve as they get bigger and stronger, Darcy actually needs to get lighter and stronger - a hard task.
And to get Logan McDonald the Dockers would need to possibly use their first pick on him in this years draft to complicate matters.

Darcy is the most important docker moving forward, agree he needs to be lighter but will be one of the best ruckman in coming years.

Like embley said- trade fyfe, get some decent picks. Fyfe won't win a premiership at freo, Darcy might.

I think everything has to be on the table with the exception of the Fyfe nonsense. It rarely comes down to direct trades, it’s a whole bundle of trades that come together then picks are are packaged and traded to get a player or improve your position in the draft. Fremantle have been very good at it in the last few seasons.

It’s about what other clubs needs are, Geelong might be interested in Darcy being an ex Geelong boy, Collingwood might be interested in Taberner and Cox to sure up the key positions, Blakely was a first round pick on the outer at the moment.

Certainly if a Melbourne club shows keen interest in Cerra and Brayshaw then Fremantle need to be open minded.

And right now it’s a race between Adelaide and us for the wooden spoon. They are also crying out for a key forward. Tex is washed up but hopefully there are a couple of young guns in SA and they understand it’s better to pick from your own backyard to avoid trying to keep interstate draft picks wanting to go home.
It’s hard to see Adelaide winning two games and making up percentage to relegate us to wooden spooners.

I dont think it's about dumb footballers but dumb coaches. Mark Harvey set it up but Ross Lyon ran it down. Sort out the selectors & assistant coaches for success.

Josh Carr is an experienced coach in his own right, now a fulltime assistant, not sure who others are apart from David Hale, I think Michael Prior is still there and the word is Fremantle might be in negotiations with John Worsfold I expect in a director of coaching role, similar to the role he played at Adelaide when Scott Camporeale was caretaker coach after the tragic death of Phil Walsh.

Been saying it for years, freo need worsfold, it's just whether the ego's can handle an eagles legend in the organization.

Woosha has always said he’s a Freo boy, but I don’t think he’d necessarily win the dorks a flag. Anyone could have won a flag with the team he had at the Eagles.
2x25= Seinor and Michael = 1xBrian Peake

Also heard that the Adelaide Crows have approached Whoosha for 2021.As a senior assistant coach to Matty Nicks.
