When was the last time we played carltank twice? We always seem to get Sydney and gws.
I'm not even joking when I say the AFL has fixtured us to play Collingwood, GWS, Sydney and North twice the past 3 years. The remaining double up was Fremantle in 2019, Adelaide 2020 and now Hawthorn.

We’ll be doing well if we’re 3 and 9 after 12. Then I’d expect 6 from the remaining 10 - subject to Essendon falling into a heap towards the end of the season which was inevitable pre-Rutten era.

8-9 wins puts us in 13-15 per 2019 (full) season and a top 4-6 draft pick.

1st and 2nd pick for J Dunkley should do the trick.

I'd be trading the future first.Next year is a midfielder super draft while 2022 we have the Davey twins to consider.

I’d expect us to be a 2-3 goals per game better side with Dunkley. That could make us bottom half of the top 8 and pushing top 4 in 2022 - all things being equal. Would the Bulldogs take the risk?

Being an Essendon obsessive I was front and centre at our last trip down the highway to the caterry. On the train with a bunch of lads, V-line !! Extremely drunk. I’m going to struggle to get in this time. Hook me up people !

For bitter fans like myself, I’ve put together the booing fixture. Get it in your calander fella’s!
In the days leading up to each game, I recommend drinking a mixture of honey and lemon.
This will soothe the throat, enabling you to boo until the final siren.

Round 2: Essendon vs Fantasia
Round 5: Essendon vs Daniher
Round 7: Essendon vs Saad

5-day break to an away Easter Thursday game vs Sydney? pass

I have us 3-9 going into the bye and finishing 8-14. Probably good enough for 14th.
That's a post I like the sound of. Top 4 draft pick in 2021 "Supa Mid" draft. If we are shot by the bye. We get the best/one of the best overlooked talents in MSD and get to choose our drafting destiny in the 2nd half of the season. As long as we have respectable losses where we show a proper game plan 2021 can be whatever place gets us the best future result

Yes that's about the only upside.

2020 was a wasted year as far as transitioning to a new game plan so we're starting from scratch in 2021. Probably bottom two heading into MSD and then maybe climb some positions later in the year.

Maybe next year is our 1992 year. Start to get games into kids and see who else we can pick up at the end of the year in draft and FAs. We might have a couple of 1992 years by the way.
