If we bring in both Taranto and Hopper it does get hard to see where Graham fits. Certainly once Cotchin retires and with Dusty playing more forward he would be part of the rotations, but in 2023?
I'd want to hold on to Graham but he needs a role at least for next year.
No crystal ball, but wouldnt surprise that in 2023, there will be:
1. More than a handful of games where BOTH Dion is out injured (hammy) and Cotch is out (managed/injured).
2. Games where Sonsie doesnt play - he looks good, but dont see him playing every game.
3. I'm different to many on this site - I didnt think Dusty would leave. But IMO, reckon he lost a lot of confidence. Keep reading ppl saying he has lost his hunger. For me, it's his confidence that looked shot. I'm not convinced its BAU in 2023.
Plenty of games right there for Jack in 2023.
Also, for me personally, whilst I am not sold on getting both TT and JH given the cost of 2 years of picks (and all along, I have preferred TT heads and shoulders above JH for anyone who reads my posts), these 2 trades only get our midfield back to an above average level given the age/wear and tear (and more games lost to injury) of Cotch, Dion and Dusty.
We acually need some outside young legs with real speed and class in the midfield.
