    Hopes - as with any year a Crows Premiership

    Expectations - another top 4 finish from Adelaide.

    Predictions - Richmond to finish top at the end of H&A season. Look in great nick in the preseason and no reason why they can't improve off the back of the flag last year, where they all seemed to click into gear.

    Hope: Back to back for the yellow and black. Would be nice to try and validate our flag as not a one off fluke in some eyes and dismiss tips of a premiership hangover.

    Expectation: Play finals again.

    Prediction:We play finals. Do we go all the way? Honestly couldn't tell you. Depends on many variables. :p

    EFC related
    Hopes:
    EFC make finals and win one
    Francis returns and plays
    Daniher finds another level

    Expectations:
    We play attacking, high scoring football, but are still deficient defensively in the middle, exposing our defence.
    We beat teams we aren't expected to and lose to those we are expected to beat (Carl, Bris, GCS namely)
    Another Anzac Day win
    Stringer has an ok year on his way to rediscovering his form in 2019.

    Predictions:
    Finish 6th behind GWS, Adelaide, Richmond, Geel & Port
    Play Dees in first week of finals.
    Daniher wins Coleman
    Merrett top 3 in the brownlow
    McGrath, Smith and Parish push essendon's tackling averages through the roof

    Non-EFC related
    Hopes:
    Adelaide or GWS win a flag.
    A year light on injuries.
    Pendles wins a brownlow

    Expectations:
    Tigers back their GF win up and finish top 4
    Geelong remain difficult, nigh on impossible, to beat at home
    Adelaide respond to GF loss and finish top again

    Predictions
    GF replay of 2017
    One of the 2013 class takes out the brownlow (merrett, bont, cripps, kelly, crouch)
    Darcy Fogarty Rising Star & Norm Smith in one year.
