The final 2nd quarter was hard to take for sure, we just weren’t good enough. People can jump up and down all they want but fact is our time will come when the young group of players come through developing together.
We have a core of 19-23yr very talented players that we need to be at 23-27yrs old who have the experience and physical development to impact consistently. This is what Woosha says in terms of “what we building towards”
Which will also be seeing Hep and Zaka approaching 30yrs old.
Midfield wise. Zerrett has arrived. Parish is about ready to really blossom when they let him play permanent inside mid next year. Langford has done his inside mid apprenticeship in 2’s. McGrath will train with midfield group this preseason, so might Begley.
They aren’t going to be ready just yet to take it up consistently to a midfield of Kennedy, Parker, Hannebury, Jack and co. With a heap of very well drilled role players supporting them.
Going to have to be patient. If we can add in class players via trade / free agency it will help us get there quicker though.
We missed our time when Hirdy had the team flying & Jobe in his prime before the saga cost us it all.
