    Training - Monday, 10th December 2018

    Seconded. Informative, well written and absent of any bias. Love it.

    If they have had off season surgery, then it's an interrupted pre-season. Fact.

    Champion Data: 6 Players in Top 100

    Having 6 inside the Top 100, with plenty who could stake a claim of being in there as well, is so much better than not having any at all like previous years. I'll take that every day of the week!

    We still have so much improvement to make as well. Guys like Viney, Harmes and Brayshaw will be in there by this time next year. We have others, like Christian Salem, Michael Hibberd, Nev Jetta, Sam Weideman and so forth who could also push their case for a spot in there next year. Not to mention Jake Lever and Steven May, who are fantastic players in their own right. It's all good stuff.

    Ab-Fab Harmes

    I don't think we really wanted him doing this, though. It came out of necessity when Lever got injured. I think there was a stat showing that after Lever went down we had Max spending more time helping out in the defensive 50, rather than getting a chop out inside our own. Hopefully when Lever returns, and with the addition of May, that we can have both Max and Preuss causing headaches at stoppages and deep in our forward 50.

    Injury List - Season 2019

    I'd like to think we'll be fine, as I would rather the players get themselves right for the season ahead than rush back and collapse in a heap by about Round 17. Having said that, we do have plenty of players who are in the rehab group and that's never a good thing. Maybe it's simply the price we pay for getting deep into the finals, when before the players had an extra month or so up their sleeve to get themselves right?

    Don't peak too early @binman. It's only December!

    That's a banable offence.

    You would be a brave soul heading down to training today. Not exactly perfect conditions for it.

    Did Goodwin say he was best 22?

    I don't think the discussion comes from bitterness. I think it comes from supporters understanding the value Jeffy can bring to the side when he's in form, but also lamenting the fact that he hasn't gotten near it for a while now. His form at VFL level was poor and he didn't even look like getting a recall, even though we were screaming out for someone to sit at the feet of our tall forwards. I'd love to see him get back to his 40 goal a season form, but as ProDee mentioned earlier, there is no room in our side for soft small forwards who don't chase and don't work hard enough. If Jeff wants to survive past 2019 then he'll have to change.

    True Andy. If Bedford is good enough, and shows enough, then he'll be rewarded with senior footy. I feel as though he's a different player to Spargo, but time will tell!

    Agree. Predicting how he fits into our 22 is really only something that can be done based on his recent form, which we all know was pretty poor in the seniors. We can all see pretty clearly what Goodwin asks of his players, and Garlett just isn't up to it... right now. As you say, he needs to adjust to it to find a way back into the senior side on a regular basis. Not only does he have someone like Spargo to contend with, but you get the feeling that the FD rate Bedford highly as well (although you wouldn't expect him to play much senior footy in his first year). I'd love to see Jeffy back to his best, but I won't be holding my breath, and side stepping a few of his team mates at training won't change my mind either.

    Contract Extension Looms for Goodwin

    Of all the players/coaches/staff at our club, Goodwin is one I worry about the least. He is building something special here, and the Crows have come knocking before, which he said no to. I have no doubt he'll sign an extension before the pre-season footy really kicks off in February.
  15. No idea to be honest. With what is seemingly a quick turn around, you would assume it wouldn't affect that timeline too much, if at all.
