    I think a number of players are more highly rated internally than the rating by fans on chat sites.

    Sheldrick is obviously held in high regard to be given the number 12 guernsey and I for one am looking forward to seeing a fit Sheldrick in action next season.

    R&R
    Last year before the season started, Tom Harley came out and stated that the priority for 2023 was to resign the emerging young talent on the list, and wait until 2024 once they had a better read on the salary cap situation going forward, to move into the transfer/free agency market.
    There was a danger that if they went heavily into the transfer market it could have a negative effect on players who were yet to renew their contracts.
    What the club hadn’t countered on was the incredible injury list that seriously exposed our depth, and in hindsight, given the age demographic of our list, there was a gap in the middle aged player group that became apparent.
    Having said that I think we should all be delighted with the way the club has responded this year.

    Well I’m not one on here to underrate him. Sheldrick is going to be a gun and (if injury free) easily makes my best 22 from round 1.

    Ta BRS328. Good to have confirmation of what was only a thought bubble/supposition for AG.
    Loose translation from the Latin is - I am tall, so I hit out.

    The absence of Mills (that's still lthe case isn't it?) for round 1, will mean there's more space for both Adams and Sheldrick onball.

    I think in the past the hardest thing was achieving balance in contested and exits.

    Can everyone remember the arguments on this forum re why the hell is Heeney and Mills not being given more inside mid time with Parker and Kennedy etc.

    Looking back we probably may agree it wasn’t about if they could or couldnt do a great job it was more the balance in the mids and match ups on the bigger grounds that may bring us unstuck.

    Probably same again different era 2024……in trying to have Parker, Mills, Patch, Rowbottom, Chad, Sheldrick, Robert’s inside mids at the same time…….a fast nimble centre midfield may (on a big ground) will be tough to break down or dominate with that rotation of bodies.

    True. Though I would still play him even if Mills is fit.

    Absolutely, I likewise think he has a great future, so the less time he spends parked in a forward pocket the better.
