Most of our games against top end teams are at home. Sydney, GWS, WB, Port and Adelaide away (we do ok at AO). The home games against PA, Geelong and Sydney, in addition to the away games against Hawks, Coll, Carlton and NM will define our season. We can win all of them we could win 12-14 games which would be a good result given our young midfield.

Hope so but its going to be very hard without any genuine top 10 mids in our team

This is more realistic and unfortunately its going to be another frustrating year

Looking forward to seeing the young ens come on Venables especially .....next year is all about getting games into the younger crew
The will to win....maybe its coming back ??

This might leak into stadium thread, but...
Is it true that the government doesn't want night games til July because that's when footbridge will be built?
And the footbridge will ease pressure on trains and traffic?

Personally I don't think the footbridge will do a hell of a lot, supposedly they're gonna built a pub n restaurant near Gloucester Park, but do they really think 15,000 people are gonna be coming/going from East Perth, besides a Subway and a sweet IGA, there's nothing there!

P.S. agree Sunday afternoons suck, 6 day breaks are worse, pretty tough draw for a team on the edge of top 8.

Well a month in and the team has exceeded my expectation so far. The next month coming up will give us a good indication where we are truly at.


Rd 5 Carlton at the G - This has to be a win, Carlton are a rabble. Although 12 months ago we were facing something similar in hawthorn. We saw it as a good chance to break the G hoodoo and we got pantsed. Although this is carlton we are talking about so i expect a decent win.

Rd 6 Freo at OS (away) - Derbies are always a bit more intense than a usual game. I would expect us to win.

Rd 7 Port at OS - Port play well in perth. this will be a test.

Rd 8 GWS at SS - A top 4 team away. a true test.

Exceeded my expectations too. I hoped to be 2-2 by now having played Sydney and Geelong. We need to win the next two then a tough month.

If we can snatch the next two and one of the following four we will be pretty well placed. Port without a ruckman are clearly vulnerable. Ryder not expected back within a month and nobody else ready to step up. I bet they're regretting trading Lobbe. Richmond here and GWS away will be difficult. Hawthorn in Melbourne likewise.

I will be happy if we win 11 and get plenty of games into youngsters. A finals berth would be terrific.

We are lucky we don't get Hawthorn at MCG, Etihad instead.
