It isn't popular amongst Hawthorn fans but I believe Clarko has done all he can for Hawthorn and I don't believe we'll come close to challenging again whilst he's at the club.We're going nowhere, today's announcement showed that. Probably just outside the bottom 4, high enough to preserve Clarko's pride.
Very much a possibility.Likely bottom 4, but also wouldn’t be surprised if Clarko drags us up to 10th with some defensive tactics or some meaningless wins at end of season (which is a worse outcome than bottom 4). By the second half of the season we may start to see some impact from Lewis, Jeka, downie, Finn etc but the first half of season could be very rough esp with Gunston missing.
I'm not going to put in a figure ,. because you never have a feel until the season is well under way and this year will be guess work simply because we didn't handle last year and the hubbing very well at all. Not unlike the Eagles stay in the east earl;y on, they seemed to lose the plot too.Where will we finish in 2021 predictions ? We pretty much know what our list is now so time to start having a stab at next season, we can then look back in 9 months time and see how stupid some of our predictions look.
I'll break it up into 5 categories, 1-4, 5-8. 9-12, 13-15 and 16-18.
I'm going with the 13-15 bracket, but at least in 2021 we'll be playing a younger 22 demographic that would give us hope that the rebuild to the future has started. I think it's possible we could push into the 9-12 bracket if we play our home venues at the G and in Tassie relatively ok.
