Best 22 in the last decade 2010-2019

Post by BenDoolan » Tue Oct 29, 2019 5:43 am

Here’s a tough one for you. Name the best 22 in the last decade. The qual is: player has had to have played the majority of their career games during this period, and played a minimum of 50 EFC games.

Mine...

B: M. Baguley, M. Hurley, B. Goddard
HB: C. McKenna, C. Hooker, M. Hibberd
C: B. Stanton, J. Watson, D. Zaharakis
HF: S. Crameri, J. Carlisle, D. Parish
F: O. Fantasia, J. Daniher, A. McDonald-Tipungwuti

Foll: P. Ryder, Z. Merrett, D. Heppell

INT: H. Hocking, A. McGrath, M. Gleeson, P. Ambrose

Tough restriction - Winders played 54 games from 2010 to 2015 (6 seasons) and 58 games prior to 2010 over 7 seasons.

Also Goddard played 129 games for us but 205 for St Kilda but he is eligible...

Given that - the only change I would make would be to swap Gleeson for Melksham (114 games for us, 57 goals) for the additional mid type player.

Yes, well Winders is eligible to make the 2000-2009 team of the decade :wink:

Yep, doesn’t matter if you’ve played for another club - provided you’ve played a minimum 50 EFC games in the decade. The majority of Goddard’s career has been this decade. And he would easily make best 22 for both clubs.

You could check AFL Tables. Search “Essendon AFL tables” and then select “all time player list”, and you can select a particular season to see who played that year.
