Genuinely impressive debut!

Gysberts burst out of the blocks too.

For the club to go to the next level we need

Hogan and Petracca to move close to the elite bracket of players

Like to see Billy Stretch as a break out year, show glimpses last season

Gysberts never liked hard work, no one will ever succeed with poor work ethic, tapscott biggest problem was he had no fear and kept on getting  crunched in the middle of Packs, which lead to him have a sore back, he just kept on getting hurt.

Brayshaw and/or Salem are due for a break out year considering their reputation as supremely talented footballers.

Brayshaw's been too injured and Salem's been a disappointment so far in his career.

Wouldn't say that Salem has been a disappointment, he has some hurdles but has shown what he is capable off.

I'm thinking it could be Dom Tyson...

Not fashionable with some, in particular 'joeboy' but coming up to the 100 game mark this season.

He had a good first year with us but has been a bit inconsistent following on from that.

This is a real make or break year for Dom, he either steps up or falls back in the pack.

Injury free...

I get the feeling that Tomas Bugg is pushing hard to make amends, and take his game and contribution to a new level. I thought he was going ok when he had the brain fade last year, so can play... another level of fitness and intensity as a defensive forward, line breaking runner to receive could have him flourish.

I hope it's Brayshaw. His kicks to Gartlett in space in his 1st year were wonderful to watch. 3 of them a game will give us 4-5 more wins a year.

ANB is a real chance too. Seems to get quietly better each game.

On second thoughts I think a breakout MFC team that plays finals would be great.

The beauty of Demonland rjay. I must admit I see Dom going the other way and struggling for a midfield place. Plus it is difficult to see him playing half back although perhaps he could play forward. 

Either way you are right I think, it is make or break year for Dom.

What is more likely to happen is that half a dozen players will show improvement on last year.

So six mini-breakouts as opposed to one big one? I’d take that.

Petracca will continue his natural progression and be dominant more often.

Salem for mine, as one who will surprise spectators in general with how damaging he is.

O-Mac will benefit greatly from Lever's presence in the backline, in terms of both leadership and support.

I would really like to see Bugg have a huge season this year. There'd be some great narrative in this if he does, for him personally and for the club.

Salem is probably the safest bet to take the next step though - his 'break out' season is long overdue. He has class in spades and he is sufficiently hard at it. He finally looks fit and strong enough.

Salem realising his potential will also go someway to easing the lingering anxiety over the Tyson/Salem trade for pick 2 (Josh Kelly). I know the club has said it wouldn't have used pick 2 on Kelly etc, but until Salem 'breaks out' the media will continue to think we stuffed up royally on this particular trade.

Great call. And I've always liked Dom, so I hope you're right, mate.

Good call too, mate. Gus has the ability to be just as dangerous as Salem IMO. In his first year, Gus only needed to get it 10 times, to create multiple scoring shots. His kicking penetration on either side is brilliant and his ball winning ability is another seriously untapped goldmine.

He broke out in 2014 but has since gone back in.

A lack of speed will mean we never see 2014 Tyson again.

My 2 bobs worth

Bugg. Think he realises this is the last throw of the dice

O Mac with Lever in the backline another year of improvement in consistency 

and Spargo   I just liked his highlights package

Didn't he damage his knee in last years 'boot camp'? That might mean he has a good run at it this year will a full preseason....

i think the other thing to factor in is that viney has basically not had a pre-season at all, so we'll need an experienced mid to pick up the slack - tyson could well be the man

He's in the same boat as Trengove was for me.

Too slow.

I'm not sure pace is his problem, I see it as turning the ball over too often....If he tidied that up he would be an absolute gun.

Tom Mac. Injury free and fit should be worth 40+ goals from CHF.
