Im more excited this year by our prospects than any previous year. I think that we have a genuine chance to make top 4. However I think that a lot still needs to go right for us. I think that the difference between our worst & best will depend on the performance of our new Stringers and 2nd stringers. Guys like Gleeson, Begley, Parish Laverde Baguley, Laverde Ambrose, Stewart Colyer Dea and Bellchambers. If these guys can find 10 - 15% improvement then we will have a stella year. But it is a long season.
I actually expect that guys like Smith, McKenna and TIppa to be become very very good footballers by seasons end ( one or two more All Aust to go with Daniher, Hurley ? )
I hope that Begley can get a regular game across half forward and Francis can turn things around and get into the team. So much talent. Our fortunes might rest very heavily on Tbell. If he can dominant some games & play well in others we can have a real show.
