    8 wins would be an A+ season in my eyes.

    Potential to improve on 2018:

    Inclusions. Docherty back and Mitch McGovern in makes this a different team already. An injury free Murphy and Kreuzer would be a boost too.

    Good Injury run. Young team needs players to get a bunch of games in together.

    A large number of young players who’ve shown talent (Dow, SPS, Curnow, McKay, Williamson, Fisher, O’Brien, Marchbank, Weitering, Setterfield). If most could make even a small improvement, the collective effect might translate into a couple more wins, the bigger the step, the bigger the effect.

    Andrew Russell making an impact on the team’s physical and mental fitness.


    Potential not to improve on 2018:

    Just a couple of injuries to the wrong players could derail the season completely.

    Stagnation. While they’ve shown talent, players like SPS and Weitering didn’t progress in 2018. If Carlton’s long list of young talent stagnates, it’s probably gonna mean more of the same.

    The draw. Not a great draw for a bottom of the ladder team I must say.

    At least you know they won’t be tanking in 2019, will be desperately trying to claw up the ladder so they don’t give Adelaide a top 3 or 4 pick

    I put 17th but can see the shape of what they're building.
    McKay, Curnow and McGovern, shapes as a nice forward line, Cripps, Walsh and Stocker is a good bunch of mids to build around

    Their improvement is entirely predicated on young players improving. Could go either way.
    I certainly can't point to other lists and say that Carlton is much stronger than anyone. You can say they have more potential but in terms of actual expected performance in 2019, its a lot of unproven or developing young players that probably aren't ready to shoulder the load for an entire year of AFL. These players are generally backed up by players past their primes eg Murphy, Kreuzer, Simpson, Curnow etc.

    I'd predict 18th and 3-4 wins.

    10th.

    Will probably miss out on the finals by half a game.

    Expecting 10w/12l

    Big year.

    The way these predictions threads usually work:

    My Team - with off-season recruitment and natural growth and improvement in our young players will improve markedly on last year.

    All Other Teams - can't see any change. All other 17 teams will finish in the exact same place or lower.

    GC saints dockers North. Wouldn't be surprised to see cats fall ungraciously too.

    The f***?

    They aren't finishing ahead of North and I'd also bank on them not finishing ahead of the Saints or Dockers.

    Cats may fall but not to 15th or 16th.

    Roos apparently are meant to fall every year. Doesnt seem to happen.

    anywhere between 10th and 18th. I'm in total agreeance with juddy in his opinion that 90% of the game is between the ears. If we can snag a couple of early wins and stay in one piece on the injury front then I think we may see a new Carlton starting to take shape.

    Also, If Andrew Russell is the fitness messiah he's claimed to be that will have a big impact. David teague will also have a significant role to play. I think we will surprise a few sides early/mid way in the season but then possibly fall away.
    But as stated, confidence is a funny thing. If things start to work and plans click into gear ....who knows.

    It may not be apples with oranges but I keep reminding myself of the pies this year. They really surprised me and Buckley went from zero to hero in a very short space of time. I think we can possibly be that side next year.

    yada yada yada....14th.

    12th with a massive rise in 2020. You have to remember we had much a state league squad in 2018 (hence bums like O'Shea and Mullet got games.
    To be fair to the current CFC regime, they never once spub trump like propaganda on the fanbase, they freely admitted there would be tough times ahead.

    The bottom half of the top 8. Can't see anything other than an unprecedented leap forward next year. It will be the Dawn of the Dynasty.

    Does this really need a thread?

    17th or 18th depending on how bad GC are.

    They'll finish above Adelaide. It's written in the stars.

    Four years behind Melbourne 2016 would be my best guess.

    Simpson past his prime?? Have a laugh. He's apparently our only elite player on our list according to champion data. Teams are still tagging him in games.

    So Melb 2012? So 16th and 4 wins. I’d say we could easily have a melb 2016 kind of rise as early as 2019 and 10 wins. But I’ve predicted 8 on my ladder predictor.

    It's 2018 mate.
    So currently I think you are 4 years NOW behind 2016 Melbourne.
    Hope that clears that up.
