We won’t be contending for a flag anytime soon.

What’s your prediction for the team in 2023?

Good exercise to identify the holes in our list.

Maynard, Kelly, Bianco
Keane, Moore, Howe
IQ, , Crisp, Poulter
Beau, De Goey, N.Daicos
Mihocek, McMahon, Elliot
Grundy, J.Daicos, Adams

Rantall, Macrae, Noble,T.Brown

That team looks decent. It’s a young midfield group. Probably lacks a bit of depth.

We still lack KPP depth, IMO. Hopefully address that over the next 2 off seasons / mid season drafts.

I haven’t included Reef, Murphy, Sier, Ruscoe, Wilson, Henry, Chugg or C.Brown.

I presume Sidey & Pendles will retire.

We really need some of these young midfielders to turn into A grade stars.

I think we are more of a chance in 2025, but by then we’ll need to replace Mihocek, Elliot, Howe and Grundy will be close to his end.

By 2023 would have thought we’d have added couple of decent FA. It’s very hard to predict

Will be too hard to predict but ill give it a go. Im assuming itwill be our current list plus Nick Daicos and Dib as options
B. J.Howe*/M.Keane/I.Quaynor
HB. B.Maynard/J.Crisp/J.Crisp
R. B.Grundy/T.Adams/N.Daicos
C. T.Bianco/R.McInnes or B.Sier/J.Daicos
HF. B.Mihocek/L.McMahon/J.De Goey
F. J.Elliot*/D.Cameron/B.McCreery
int. S.Pendlebury*/C.Poulter/N.Murphy or J.Noble/S.Sidebottom

Players with an asterisk are risks of being past it due to either Injury, Age or being dislodged

Potential Replacements
J.Howe (Injury/Age)-> W.Kelly
S.Pendlebury (Age) -> F.Macrae
S.Sidebottom (Age) -> Brown boys, Rantall or Ginnivan
J.Elliott (Injury) -> O.Henry

Pendles Sidebottom & Howe shouldn’t be there IMO. Maybe Howe but the other 2 would hope not.

Why do people think Sidebottom will go on longer than Pendlebury? On exposed form Pendles is ahead of Sidey in basically everything. Do we really think the cliff will come so much sooner for Pendles?

Yes I do. Pendles is a all time great but will be close to the oldest in the comp in 2022. No one lasts forever. Sidey a few years younger and better runner. Likely to stay at the level for a good few seasons

I’d like to add Moyle and Dib to the side as hopefully we’ll be able to get them and an unrestricted FA from somewhere who just wants to come home and play for us.

This gives me confidence
Can see where we are going and not too far off
Its hard to fit in everyone and so should be pressure for spots
