    The Lloyd situation reminds me eerily of the Tom Mitchell 2016 situation. I think
    Most of us would dearly love to have him stay but he is being offered good coin elsewhere by the sound of it.

    Hope Jake Lloyd stays, but if he goes then so be it. If a player is no longer in the red and white then he is only an opposition player from then on and we move on.

    To have macca retire and lloyd go would massively hurt our transitions

    Both seriously cool customers / great decision makers

    We may have to see who retires and who is traded before being able to offer Lloyd a better deal. He deserves a good contract, I hope it's with us

    I imagine that if Macca retires (and I suspect he will if we get a flag) we can probably meet Lloyd's wishes.
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    At this stage if the above happens it would be best case scenario for us.

    I think that's the wrong way around.

    Macca has been a great player for the Swans and is still playing good football. His best has been better than Lloyd's best (by a reasonable margin) and even this year, he's probably been slightly more important for us, when on the field.

    But he's close to the end of his career. Even if he wants to play on next year and can eek another year out of his body, he's still a short term option.

    I'd have thought the priority should be re-signing Lloyd. Within limits, of course. For all his consistency, cool head and reliability, he's not a superstar. Just a very dependable B grade contributor. But if they can reach agreement with Lloyd at a salary reasonable to both parties, they should do that. And then if McVeigh wants to play on next year, the club should look to see whether they can fit him into the list and the cap. If not, he can retire or go elsewhere. But their relative ages surely has to make the Lloyd situation a priority over McVeigh?
