We really miss Soldo..we REALLY miss Soldo & Nankervis.
Blame that fat prick at Geelong.
That couldnt jump off the ground so he pushed a player into Soldo.
and Soldo knows it too.
He told me 3 months ago, the knee was still giving him issues.
Fingers crossed he can complete a full preseason because we need him ready for round 1 2022.

Was in 3121 yesterday & said he's started running this week.
Poor lug has had 2 more surgery procedures after the reco after setbacks.
Said hopefully he's turned the corner..

With the reported set backs Ivan has had in recent months I am a little concerned that we are putting too much faith in him returning to the game from the start of the season or he will be as good as new. He is a big man so the injury is taking a lot of healing but we have to hope he comes back and we don't have to rely on substandard ruck support next year

Me too though it's going to be a big ask. Bloody bad knee injury.
Yep car crash type of knee injury.

ACL Rupture along with a Medial tear was a bad one.

Even worse when you are 100+ kg and 2 metres tall.

Another serious injury caused by Shove Hawkins but nothing to see here.

Most players returning from a major knee injury take a further 12 months to get back to full health and confidence. I won't be expecting too much from Eevarn in 2022

3 more years for Soldo. We must be confident in his knee if that's the case. Good news!

That's a glowing endorsement of his internal value and also a vote of confidence in the knee. I'd say we got a good number to get it done for three years.

Looks like we have reinvested the salary savings on CCJ and Mabs. But if he still isn't ready or either he or Nank go down again, the reserves are the very young Ryan, followed by Balta and Miller. Hardly filling me with vim and confidence.
As for support for the ageing/struggling Jack and Tom show, it's Caddy and Dusty who's badly needed in the midfield too.

Oh well. Great while it lasted.

Looking forward to Evarn and Noah playing against the Cats....... Balta goes hard at the contest as Soldo drops in the hole and the *smile* caught in between comes off third best.... now, let me think, who do we hope that is?
One day the karma bus will hit!

Thats a great endorsement for Soldo. 3 more years even after a knee reco.

He is clearly highly rated by the coaches.

WOW didn't see that coming , but with Chol & CCJ gone
it shows Ryan & Colina are hopefuls
Ivan has proved himself at level and must have been training well

Well done big fella

Thats a very bleak outlook! The club would know best regarding how Soldo is tracking. I doubt he has been re-signed at exorbitant levels so it is most likely a very decent deal for us given it is for 3 years.

No doubt the ruck depth is a bit of an issue for next year though. Fingers crossed that Noldo can share the load for each other.
