I think we finish 5th again.
We got kinda lucky taking on the Hawks in the semi, if it was anyone else in the top 4 we lose an it's over in the semi.

For us to break into the top 4 we need alot of things to happen

- One of May, Lever an Omac has to be in the AA or atleast play at that level.

- Petracca needs to become a superstar. Like Jordan De Goey dominant in a big game.

- Gawn stays fit, our midfield is too slow to be chasing other mids. We need first hands on it

- Someone needs to step up an kick 30 as a small forward. We need a crumber so badly

- ANB an Brayshaw need to improve their disposal

I don't see all of it happening yet
Last game I saw De Goey play he got beaten in a marking contest then watched as his man ran away with the ball. Probs wasn't an important game tho

He also kicked 3 of the best goals in the game including what could have been the pies match winner.

3 in the semi, 4 in the prelim an 3 in the GF.

I don’t know medhurst, but you really think he’s only on menzel’s level?

Edit- Ok, I realize now you said “closer to”. Surely he’s better than Menzel, no?
SUre, I'm mostly stirring Topkent because he's a big fan of De Goey yet was very critical of Watts and Hogan for not putting any defensive pressure on in the forward line. De Goey is more of a lazy show pony than both guys so I thought I'd link him to a couple of guys who had no interest in hard work. :)

I knew you were lol that's why I didn't respond. I was looking up Paul Medhurst stats readying my rebuttal an I remembered he was actually pretty good for a couple years.

De Goey was lazy last night, saw him start walking when the ball was 5m away at one point.

Suppose I don't care as much when they play for someone else

Statistically we are now highly likely to miss the 8. Something like 14 of 108 teams to go 0-2 have made finals under the current season/finals system.

We'd have to have a big run to make the eight now. The only comfort is that we have been so bad that we might just kick into gear and see it all click again.
