Essendon

Terry Wallace's Take

“Stood their ground on Daniher which took up most of their energy. Brought in a couple of speculative players.”

What Plough said before the trade period

“The Essendon Footy Club should be ready to compete at the high end of the ladder but to me there is mixed messaging coming out of the club.

“In the last two years they’ve picked up Adam Saad, Devon Smith, Jake Stringer and Dylan Shiel, which is a club that thinks they are ready, yet the coach has told us to be patient, so it’s sort of mixed messaging I think that’s come out of the club for a while.”
