Let’s do a bit of an experiment, using data that we have on hand.
What will the NMFC list look like in three years, at this point in 2023? Who will be gone and who will remain? In doing this it exposed to me the biggest strengths and weaknesses in our list, and perhaps will point to what our...
North Melbourne will boast the biggest and best inner-city training complex in Melbourne under an ambitious plan submitted to the Victorian government.

6 games in and the comp is starting to settle into the season now, with teams starting to settle into their relative positions on the ladder. We are 1-5 however I think the consensus is that we have played better footy than our record suggests. As such I though it a good time to do a bit of a...

Thinking about list development strategies and analysis I thought it might be an idea to put out list into groups of players, categorised by their importance to the team in terms of being a core part of our next flag. The caveat on this being that we are likely to plateau/drop before we...
Man, the last few weeks have been ******* frustrating.
Just when we come into the tough part of the draw, where we get the chance to prove our credentials, we get smacked by key injuries which were compounded by already existing long term injuries to fringe best 22 types.
