If we can win four of our next five (Dockers, Hawks, Blues, Saints, Demons) then I’d say we’d be in an almost certain position. Three of the next five and we would still be in for a chance.

I’m hopeful but not too hopeful. 40/60.

Good chance, young side and will go through ups and downs butbanking enough early wins to get them home.

Big 3 weeks coming up before our bye, Dockers(A), Hawks(H) and Blues(A), if we win all 3 we can just about lock in finals and maybe even start dreaming of a home final ie. top 6.

I'm confident that whatever we do this year we'll be able to better it substantially in 2020 and beyond.

Only 4 more games vs top 8 sides for the year means we're a massive chance

Tried to get in for a value punt when I heard that stat earlier in the week but the bookies have already dropped us to under 1.50 to do it.

I have us just missing on the ladder predictor.

With this thread the curse is on. May never win a game again.

Given the current position, 13 wins would be a great effort. Wait and see if that makes finals or not. Percentage might need some work.

Flip a coin. Decent chance, but I’ve seen enough lions footy over the past decadeto suggest that it is no better than 50/50 at best at the moment.

I'm cautiously optimistic. We have a few games coming up that we *should* come away from with the 4 points that is only going to strengthen that chance but there's still a bit of the youthful yips to contend with that makes any game a real gamble right now.

My pass mark for this year is to be pushing for finals, but I'd be over the moon if we are actually in it. Currently 4th on the ladder, we're giving ourselves a pretty good shot at doing just that.

One week at a time but it is looking good .Beating Fremantle away from home this weekend entrenching themselves in the top eight then not looking back imo.

In 2019, 2 losses in a row can see you drop to 12th. I'm thinking they will fade out for a month at some point. But let's see.

Can probably bank on 2 losses in a row for our final two games of the year v Geelong & Richmond.

Our draw is really kind up until those two games, so we'd want to hope we have finals locked up around Round 20.

Reckon they’ll miss but from 2020-2022 they’ll be more attractive to free agents and will be a huge chance for a flag IF development keeps going upward. FWIW I think they’ll win one before us potentially.

I think they will this year and i will be glad if they do, as they are an exciting team to watch.

We also play GWS and Port Adelaide away two weeks in a row.

If you write those 4 off as losses we need to go 6-3 in the other 9 games. Pretty iffy.

We're 6-3 now, can't see why we can't do that again :p

Winning the next 3 before bye is the crucial part.
Rest will fall in place afterwards.

They should make it from here. But its´s just a s likely they could blow with a young side.

I think this week is the litmus test. If they can win in Perth reason they make it.

If they can knock off Hawthorn twice then I think they will scrape in.
