    Why do you think Alex is a girl's name? Alexander is a boy's name. Alexandria or Alrxi are girls names. But then again alexi can also be a boy's name. Ever heard a song called 'A Boy Named Sue by Jonny Cash?

    What's more my phone made the Paps call not me. Completely out of my control. Thai mobile phones have a mind of their own and they speak it just like Thai women lol

    Hun says it’s a positive development

    Category: | Herald Sun

    Essendon is happy with the full-forward’s progress in recent months but wants the star father-son to check back in with his specialist before stepping up his training workload.

    Essendon football manager Dan Richardson said the club was taking all steps to ensure Daniher was completely over his groin problems before he returns to playing.

    Some interesting statistics within this article which left me feeling quite positive about our team which although it will technically be even younger this year is actually more experienced
    The interesting take for me regarding this was in the comments where the originator of the article made this interesting observation in the comments where he drilled a bit deeper
    “Makes a huge difference for Sydney – suggests that despite a massive number of games of experience coming off the list, they’re not necessarilly losing a lot out of 2019’s best side.”

    true
    Hodge at Brissy featured alot last year vs say Grundy, Smith, Jack or even McVeigh

    we do bring in some good middle aged experience in Grey and Squizzzzy plus Brand

    arguably very ready draft picks in Stephens and Gould plus I wouldnt be surprised if Taylor got a few games mid season onwards once his base can handle AFL Snr footy

    Taylor could do a James Rose or Ronke and win a game or two by kicking 4 goals plus in a debut game

    As a club it still appears we have taken a longer path to fight for a top4 vs some teams that have rebuilt on the run with a very different recruitment strategy.......There are some seriously good teams out there for 2020 in comparison

    I dont see that we have given ourselves the best opportunity to remain season to season top8 competitive vs some other clubs ie Geelong, Pies, Hawks

    no one on this forum seemed to rate the Dogs or Bombers. Some very critical comments re those teams yet they still featured 7th and 8th last year and made the finals..........we didnt.....we finished 15th

    I hope I am wrong and we are back fighting for a 6-8 position on the table in 2020

    Thanks, that was a interesting read going through the various list management strategies. Further to your point above about our list being even younger this year, the article also stated our list will be the 2nd youngest this year (only behind Gold Coast) after being the 5th youngest list in 2019. However we will drop dramatically from being the 5th most experienced team in 2019 to also being the 2nd least experience team (again only behind Gold Coast) after losing massive 1100 games experience with the big 4 retirements.
