Who are our top ten players?

Who do rate best?

Whatever criteria you like.

But only list ten.

Is it a simple to do or not?

How do you include ageing players, or you don’t.

How do you include injured players or you don’t?

It’s an interesting exercise, so for Maynard to make it, and you select nine more, you might find some are missing you’d really want.
Would be easier if it was best dozen players.
I personally rate Maynard higher than Crisp who a lot seem to rate very highly - Maynard has improved his decision making tenfold, and he simply doesnt get beaten by his man anymore like he used to. Great set of hands too and doesn't mind an intercept mark.

Actually I'll finish the job

1. Brodie Grundy
2. Scott Pendlebury
3. Adam Treloar
4. Steele Sidebottom
5. Taylor Adams
6. Jordan De Goey
7. Darcy Moore
8. Tom Langdon
9. Brayden Maynard
10. Jaidyn Stephenson

Top few based on longevity whilst the bottom group is based more on recent form, since we don't have many who have been stars for several years.

In rough order:

Pendlebury
Grundy
Sidebottom
De Goey
Moore
Adams
Treloar
Crisp
Howe
Stephenson

Only really feel the last 2 are up for debate at this time. Crisp has been so consistent for the entire time he's been at the Pies I feel we take him for granted. Howe has held a rag tag backline together in recent years and Stevo is already winning games off his own boot so they get a run.

Maynard, Langdon, Elliott the unlucky ones. Elliott would be a walk-up start if he could, you know, walk up and start on a regular basis.

1. Grundy
2. Pendlebury
3. Treloar
4. Sidebottom
5. Crisp
6. DeGoey
7. Howe
8. Stephenson
9. Adams
10. Moore

My list takes into account how good the player is (IMO), as well as how available/durable they are. In other words, a closer reflection of their real life output/production.

What about Dick Lee, Jack Regan and Gordon Coventry?
Only listed players I have seen live. I'm pretty fricken old, but not that old. Were you lucky enough (or old enough) to see any of the older guys on my list play. They were amasing. It was a toss up between Carmen and Greening as number 1.
