After witnessing a huge drop off from a PF in 2018 to bottom 2 in 2019, I'm really keen to hear some thoughts and opinions on Melbourne and how they will perform in 2020. Discuss.
Yeah it looks quite likely we'll be getting both Langdon and Tomlinson to play roles on the wing for us, might get Elliott as well which would be pretty good. Have to get the midfield mix right next year, especially the inside and outside balance, so I'm glad we're trying to address this as I don't want to see someone like a Brayshaw play on the wing again when his preferred position is on the inside.Hard to talk about this before the trade period begins.
If they carry the same list composition into next year they won't be much better.
Agree. Should have retired.Nathan Jones playing of half back again this year? If so put me down for 17th
Only had to be off by a small amount this season to be beaten.17 players having post and pre-season surgeries and players playing injured hurt. Brayshaw pand McDonald both played with back injuries and Oliver has both shoulders operated on.
Excuses aside, Goodwin has no idea.
No we weren't "expected to", people like to say because we got agonizingly close but we were expected to be in the mix for finals and we were.I don’t see them as a finals team. All year the talk has been about this just being an off year. IMO the aberration was actually 2018. When you go deeper you actually see it quite clearly, in 2017 let’s not forget they were earmarked to make finals & didn’t, same as this year!
What the fu** are you on aboutHard to pick given they obviously tanked mid season when finals became unattainable - they should have finished 13-15th had they actually tried the wholeway through.
You can make a case for them making finals via soft draw but not so much because they are that good but ratherthere are plenty of bad teams.
Hoping for another disaster year though - Lyon and Roos melts are funny.
