The success of the Stocker Live Trade will encourage more teams to take advantage of the option next season.
Cripps won’t get tagged, too hard to stop - Fisher, LOB, SPS and Dow will be the targets ... until Setterfield plays.
Our forward line will go from bottom three to top three for points scored in one season.
Bolton to have his contract extended before the season finishes.
Blues will have at least three AA players in the squad of 40, two will make the team.
Depending on other results, we will be a mathematical chance to make the eight with five rounds to play.
Walsh will win the RS award
Setterfield will provide more influence and impact at Carlton than Shiel on Essendon across the balance of their respective careers.
And that’s not a knock on Shiel.
This kid will become an elite footballer.
Its not like quarrels can be off set until he hits his straps either, the kid has smashed, torn, ripped the hell out of any strap from day one. I'm looking forward to being abused mercisley. I love the kid.
I’ll stand by it. I saw flashes of what we hoped for right at the end of last year. He’s had an amazing preseason. He is moving 5 times better than ever. He looks confident. His hands below his knees on Thursday were terrific. He was hard at it.
He will get the ball 18-20 times a game this year. He will get a combined 16 intercepts and one percenters.
He will use the ball brilliantly. He will never be ‘flogged’.
That’s AA stuff. In a finals side. Which we will be.
