You don't need my permission to make threads, schmuttt 🤗 Good idea though.

Melbourne's ladder position end of H&A: 6th
If playing finals, how far do we go: Semi Final
B&F: Petracca
AAs: Gawn, Petracca (Kozzy squad). IF Oliver plays a full season, he could be around the mark.
Most improved: van Rooyen (followed by Salem, provided he isn't at half-back)
Gone backwards: Langdon (followed by Hunter)
 
Melbourne's ladder position end of H&A: 4th
If playing finals, how far do we go: Prelim
B&F: Petracca
AAs: Gawn, Petracca, Viney (can see Kozzy missing out due to the split between forward and mid)
Most improved: Bowey
Gone backwards: Hunter (Langdon has already gone backwards)

Melbournes ladder position end of H&A: 4th.
If playing finals, how far do we go: Grand Final.
B&F: Oliver
AAs: Gawn, Trac, Pickett
Most improved: Rivers, Sparrow, JVR.
Gone backwards: Fritsch (hope not), Langdon.
 
I'm going to be positive.
Ladder position 3rd.
Preliminary final.
B&F Trac (boring prediction I know)
AA trac gawn (again boring)
Most improved: Sparrow. I'm not sure I he can add to his game but I hope he can prove me and other doubters wrong. I think Salem and Billings can have better seasons but I don't consider it improvement because they are both 28. Salem especially because he's had some pretty down years.

Langdon seems to be the obvious going backwards candidate the trajectory has been there for a year and a half. May is a bit of a watch. His best is still very good but he's definitely showing signs of looking very vulnerable at times.

I think Windsor will be the surprise packet this year the Judd McVee award. I would hope Kynan Brown but I just don't think he will get enough games. Perhaps Taj might get more of a go and surprise a few.

Gone backwards - Langdon

I’ll take my standard approach to Melbourne and throw it out the window. I think the adversity will firm us up and make us a better outfit this year. Two years of finals failure will resonate with guys like Petracca, May, Viney, Lever and Gawn. They’ll want to make amends and silence the doubters.

I think we have it in us to make amends.
