Re: Post 2019 and Pre 2020

Culture and coaching the Bombers' big issues By Jake Niall February 12, 2020 — 7.58pm .... Last year, Essendon was overhyped. This year, there's a chance that they'll be under-sold, on the basis of these pre-season setbacks. We shouldn't forget that, while Daniher's groin is a concern, they've effe...

Re: Which Three Players Do You Hope Will Emerge as Best 22 in 2020

I wanna see Clark get a regular gig, mostly as an inside mid ball extractor. He's a determined chap that might benefit from a good run at it.
Parish, next level please.
Shiel, 80% conversion rate minimum. Clearly already best 22, but I'd expect him to be better.

Injuries season 2020

Patrick Ambrose: minor tweak of his calf during his break, but he has started running again since being back at the Bombers and it shouldn't interrupt his preparations too much. Joe Daniher: hasn't yet rejoined training... no guarantees he will be ready to go by the start of next season. Sam Draper...

Re: 2020 - Dead Before it Started??

Keep expectations low so disappointment is less? Is that what you're doing? Less hype means less sh!te for the players to believe. They need confidence & fitness, not inflated belief. Complacency is the enemy. :roll: https://scontent-syd2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/79530388_2771738189538525_2206511123...
