Watching us play this year I firmly believe we are a serious contender next year if we play our cards right this off season. Our forward line is excellent and our backline is very good too, it's coming along great with the emergence of McKenna, Ambrose and McGrath. Gleeson as well I'm very impressed with his ability to take intercept marks. If he could fill out a little more that would be ideal. The midfield needs serious work though and it is the only thing holding us back. Heppell, Merrett, Parish, Zaharakis and the outside players like Colyer, Fantasia, Tippa and McGrath when they run through there, that is a great base to work from. But we need more grunt to win more clearances.
Zac Jones and Hopper would be the two I'd be targeting very hard. Both young, tough players they would help immensely with our clearances. We get two players like that in and this side is deadly next year.
Those in the know say we are really cashed up, I hope we are going after these players as opposed to one superstar like Kelly or Martin, or JJ when we need to strengthen midfield. We have our own superstar in Merrett supported by Heppell. Add further development from players like Parish, Fantasia, hopefully Langford, Laverde etc.. Belly in the ■■■■ is doing great too. Jesus Christ I hope we are in some of these players' ears, they would be perfect for us and if we have the cash and they leave, I'll be spewing if it isn't to us.
Jones I highly doubt will leave but Hopper appears very gettable. We must surely be appealing to players as we are very much on the up, a big club and cashed up. How likely are we to get anyone?
