Essendon might be better off if they were coachless.Essendon will struggle but remember that Daniher/Fantasia barely played this year, Saad is a loss but hopefully we can find a plug and play for him
6 7 and maybe 8 could potentially be ready to go
North on other hand are coachless and could be it
Can't see Essendon getting under North.I mean we've heard for 3 years that even if Raz and Daniher were fit we'd still be sh*t coz they're flash in the pan overrated players.
Now we lose them and we're gonna win the spoon coz they left?
Yep,Essendon might be better off if they were coachless.
Rutten is the fist coach in history to step into the head coach role, and on his first day in the job he's lost the support of the players.
I see the Crows still, a lot of people seem to be a little mesmerised by their last month, but they will be weaker next year than this year, on paper at least......They literally struggle to have one player who could be classed as A grade, at least the Roos will still have players like Cunnington & Goldy.It could get real messy for a handful of teams towards the final rounds of the year.
Roos then the Bombers the two likely teams.
Nah, even before they won games, they were competitive in some games, even against some of the top teams (at least in patches). I remember in early parts of some games they were competitive before dropping off massively, and that's due to the lack of confidence. I think their midfield of Matt CrouchI see the Crows still, a lot of people seem to be a little mesmerised by their last month, but they will be weaker next year than this year, on paper at least......They literally struggle to have one player who could be classed as A grade, at least the Roos will still have players like Cunnington & Goldy.
For me, the difference in terms of whether or not Essendon finish bottom or not is mainly on Dunkley. Get Dunkley in, their other midfielders will improve considerably from having a big body in there protecting them. If they don't land him, they'll get pushed around and struggle to get it inside 50 like they did this year.If Essendon get Caldwell and Dunkley, no way they finish on the bottom
We have Quaynor, Stephenson, Ruscoe, Bianco, Rantall etc. And if there is an exodus, given most players in question are contracted, we will get something decent in return. And we would still have a good amount of experienced players to keep us competitive. It's not like everyone is going walk for nothing. We will get Reef McInnes at a bargain too.Collingwood are a dark horse with the enviable (and self inflicted) exodus they are having and no standout kids coming through the ranks.
