Crystal Ball 2018: Predictions for next season

Recommended Posts

We lose round 1 to the Cats by 4 goals, with at least 3 of our best 22 out with pre-season injuries.

Hunt does a hammy early in the year. Stays 426 for 8210.

Maximum starts the year in red hot form and at the half way mark of the season is second fave for the Bluey behind Oliver, who continues to rack up 30+ weekly despite hard tags. Oliver also finishes the year with a kick to handball ratio of 40/60 and multiple bags of 2 or more goals in a game. 

Pedo to play as back up ruck, switching forward, and is important in a few wins before the bye. By the half way mark of the season, Weed takes his place and TMac relieves Max in the guts instead. Young Sam starts to look at home, and shows enough to have the press pumping up his tyres as a "future star". 

My boy ANB does a Ben Simmons and racks up multiple triple doubles in the forward line. ( kicks/handballs/pressure acts)

Our Coach to FINALLY remind the team how long it has been since we beat North. Privately AND in the press.

We have a percentage booster against North.

Essendon have a percentage booster against us.

At the Bye we are in 8th.

Start slowly post-bye but finish the year well to finally make the finals in 7th. Lose that final to eventual premier Geelong.

(During the year, we have at least one player go down with an ACL. No more broken feet though, so its not all bad)

Trac to slightly disappoint. (Improves, but doesnt take games by the throat regularly despite the obvious talent/hype)

Jesse to crush it, before suffering an injury in round 10-12 which sees him lose form and fitness.

Tmac wins goalkicking.

Viney wins Bluey ahead of Clarry and Hibbo.

At least one story in the Hun saying Hogan wants to be traded to Freo, and one story saying we made a mistake trading Watts after we lose a close one with bad kicking.

3 Players who improve the most = Joel Smith, Angus Brayshaw and Corey Maynard.

3 Players who slide the most= Bernie, Jordan Lewis and Nev Jetta.

Surprise packet = Charlie Spargo who plays 10 games.

Other clubs..........

Improvers = Carlton by the most, with Essendon also improving. Collingwood. Obviously, i believe we (MFC) also get better.  

Sliders = North who will only win 4 games and the spoon. West Coast who will miss the finals. Hawks who win no more than 8. Port.

We will drop down to 10th next season. Lack of forward depth with Jeffy and Jess seriously missing the creativity of one Jack Watts. Defence will keep us in many games but we will not kick enough winning scores. Jayden Hunt to have a stellar year.

Position: 6th

Improvers: ANB, Hogan, 

Sliders: Vince, T-Mac, Stretch. i'd say O-Mac too, but he's pretty meh already... He'll slide to Casey & Petty'll take his spot (hopefully sooner rather than later).

Darkhorse: Spargo

'He'll slide to Casey & Petty'll take his spot'...'  Not a bad consideration. Incestuous family ties (Tom, as brother) need not hinder such an awaited outcome.

Petracca guilty of drinking his own bath water and gets told to pull his head in.

Mitch Hannan to become more consistent and takes a MOTY contender

Jack Watts really targeted when we play PA

Dion Johnstone to be a surprise packet

Declan Keilty to debut

Well here goes:

Billy Strech trains all off sesson with Maynard, develops a beast mode and surprises every one from round one.

Maynard becomes a first dibs midfielder but becomes Demonland's whipping boy cos he can't kick.

Pat McKenna debuts and becomes the surprise linkman the team badly needs.

Salem becomes the talk of the town by getting himself fit and playing permanently in the midfield. Selected in 50 percent of SuperCoach teams.

Clarrie gets tagged every week and develops a penchant for belting blokes. Disqualified from Brownlow.

Fritsch debuts round one and makes an impact but is suspended by the club midseason for being out with the Yarra Valley lads and missing training. Also nominated for mark of the year.

Lewis has a slow start and drops himself round eight citing sore knee.

Viney struggles for fitness and only plays seven games.

Lever becomes a fine acquisition and leads best backline in comp.

Hunt becomes more consistent and wins four appearances on the Footy Show.

Dees finish third and reach prelim. Lose to GWS by two points.
