    Tony Sheahan tweeted that Francou will be leaving the Swans.

    This year
    Dew - Senior Assistant
    Playfair - Defence
    Francou - Midfield
    Kirk - Forwards
    Shaw - NEAFL
    Davis - Development Coach


    Next year
    Dew (assuming he doesn't go to the Suns) - Senior Assistant
    ? - Defence
    ? - Midfield
    Steve Johnson - Forwards
    Kirk - ?
    Shaw - ?
    Laidler - Development Coach
    Kennelly - Development Coach


    Shaw as defensive coach and Kirk as midfield coach would make too much sense so they'll probably swap

    Guessing Kennelly or Laidler to coach the NEAFL team, or maybe as a team like Mattner and Crouch did in 2015.

Although I would have thought that the bulk of that responsibility would fall on Horses shoulders, injecting some new blood can only improve this. The logical coaching positions will be; SJ - Forward coach, Kirky - midfield coach and Tadgh/Josh/Rhyce? - back coach.

    I think we do need that crap. Our players, supporters and club play too nice. It's time we got a little &%^ into us.
    No. We don't.
    There's a difference between being ruthless and playing dirty.
    Stevie J and the mob over at GW$ play dirty.
    Didn't see many of their players in the top 10 on the Brownlow list.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    After all this time and all the variations of his name I've seen, surely it's Tadgh?

    I am fully aware of the correct spelling. I normally deliberately spell it with a surplus of gs or hs because I've always been amused by how many media outlets continued to get the spelling wrong, even after more than a decade in the game.

    So what's Blakey's role?

    I knew that and tried to spell it incorrectly for the same reason

    Love Tadhg's addition now its time to develop a proper HB line like we had the previous decade like Shaw Tadhg Matner Malceski even Leo Barry.

    Not sure about the SJ addition if he can fix our forward setup and positioning something even Kirk hasn't been able to do. Having SJ will be great for the small forwards particularly Hayward (potential 400 goal player) and James Rose.

    I'm quite excited about all appointments, particularly Johnson's. He's clearly a very smart player and will bring a fresh perspective from a highly successful team. There was explicit recognition from Harley in his statement that we need that fresh perspective, which I'm pleased to see.

    I really liked Johnson's article on Buddy recently; perhaps drawing on observations made as part of his pitch?
