The season will rise and fall on 2 things. Changes to game plan and Injuries.

We have the same game plan and constant injury changes of last year from the start of the year and we are bottom 4.
We keep the same game plan but have a good run with injuries and our fixture and we finish 6-12th.
We combine a revamped game plan with a solid run without injury (particularly to our top mids) as well as our weakest fixture in many years and we could finish top 4. With players already out there training unhampered seasons from Shuey, Yeo, McGovern and Rioli will make a huge difference.

For those not following West Coast look out for Izzy Winder next year. Of our draftee's Clark likely to play 10+ games and don't be surprised if we see debuts from Hough and Chesser.

Agree with the first bit, but not the second bit. It's wildly optimistic to think you'll finish Top 4 - neither of us will next season.

It is very optimistic. However at the base of it the WCE have a very, very good best 22 with solid depth in defence and offence. Midfield injuries kill us for one and the gameplan we played was just completely pulled apart by a combination of lack of attacking flair and the rule changes.

It's also while I listed at the bottom of the least most likely to happen.
