A lot of talk about our stats and promising performances ,however only 1 win as at 14/5/19 round 8 ?...can CFC finish off second half of season strongly and get six wins getting us off bottom of the ladder in 2019.

Bottom 4.

Nothing has changed since the season started in my opinion.

I just want to keep seeing effort (and see no more of the **** show against North) and the wins will come.

I've been pleased with the improvement thid season despite the 1-7 start and being on the bottom of the ladder. A lot of players are growing nicely, and development for me at this stage is the most important thing.

Dont get me wrong - I want wins. But you have to be realistic with the age of the list and the lack of senior talent we have.

Continued development as those kids turn into that senior talent over the next few years is vital.

At the moment I can only see us finishing above North, Swans, GCS and maybe the Saints unless we come home strong so 18th - 14th

The next worse *, Melbourne, Port, Dogs and Hawthorn I can’t realistically see us finishing above unless we knock over sides like GWS this week.

Competitions very even, even at the bottom end

Bottom 4 if I am optimistic... last if I being realistic. We have had a very very soft draw for the first 8 rounds, so not sure where people are seeing 5-8 wins when we have 1 in the softest part of the season.
It's one of those seasons where anything is possible. Anyone can beat anyone. We got flogged by Norf one week, then pushed Collingwood up to the dying minutes the next. The one team we did beat - the Dogs, convincingly - have since gone on to convincingly beat Richmond and Brisbane, who are sitting 6th and 5th respectively.

If our boys turn up to play, the way they did against the Pies, we're a chance against anyone I reckon.

Keep playing like they did on Saturday, and the lads can rack up a few wins before the end of the season. I'm less concerned about the draw and the ladder than I am about our young team's capacity to run the season out.

It's looking like a really even competition from middle ladder to the bottom this year, percentage will come right into it with maybe 5,6 maybe 7 teams finishing on the same points so a % in the 90's might be the difference of 3,4 ladder positions better... Injuries will obviously play a massive part as well...
If we start winning these games that we've been well in but have let them slip then I'm predicting another 6wins out of the last 14 games, 7 for the year, that should have us at least 14th...
