    From villain to hero - who is next?

    Well Josh Bruce has been transformed and Ryan Gardner too.

    Who is our next villain to transform to hero?

    Gia.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Would struggle to get a game for us now.

    Trade worked out pretty well for us in the end. I’ve moved on. But like the sentiment.

    Needs to stop being so soft...

    Just kidding, I love Gia but he was a whipping boy.

    On a serious note, Bailey Dale is one that is turning the corner.

    Schache needs to find a role and will struggle with Bruce and Naughton starting to gel. I think he still has value to offer but not sure we're going to be the ones to utilise it - I really think he should be trialled in defence at VFL to see if he has something.

    Only way Schache comes in is due to injury or develops into a KPD. I still think Gardner is replaceable and while he is now servicable within we need to develop someone else for his role. I'm doubtful Schache would do better though?

    Schache is an interesting one.

    Watching Liam Jones continue to do well as a key defender makes it quite compelling. I wonder if we can manufacture VFL time in a defensive role for Josh, now that Young has to be a reasonable chance at promotion.

    Also agree on Dale - not sure he’s ever been a villain, but he’s well on his way to not being a whipping boy.

    Great suggestion. He is nowhere near a senior game as a forward and its take something catastrophic to change that - like season ending injuries (plural).

    There is nothing to lose trying him as a defender - worked for Jones and Moore.

    He is such a great kick for goal though....

    Also - donít think this is quite the same but Dunkley is working his way firmly back into my heart.

    Different context of course but damn he is an impressive young man!

    Not sure Dunkley should be in your heart he might break it next year.
    I agree we have little to lose trying Schache down back.
    Athletic got everything physical and shoul enjoy having the ball between him and the goal.

    With two rucks and the bromance between Dunks and Treloar he might decide lifes pretty good at the Dogs
    There are plenty of talented people in the world. As you already know, talent is not enough. Some of the athletes with the most potential never pan out. What separates the good from the great is determination and work ethic.

    Ironic that Kyle Langford did quite a bit of rucking on the weekend as Essendon's ruck stocks are very thin at the moment.

    It's pretty hilarious to imagine Dunkley having to ruck at Essendon if he left. Glad he stayed

    Talking about ruckman, can Sweet be converted to a FB to play on the gorilla forwards? He is 203cm, and is unlikely to play ruck this year. I don't know if he is mobile enough or has any idea how to play the role? Just a left field suggestion.
