Other than Melbourne humming it has been a rather even season.

Usually 12 wins will get to 7th or 8th position at the end of the year, but last year 7th & 8th teams won only 11.

One week at a time Paddy...starting this week to get us to 6 wins after 8 rounds.

8 Adel - Home - W = 6 wins
9 GWS - Away - L **
10. Syd - Home -W = 7 wins
11. Coll - MCG - W = 8 wins

BYE: Mid season Draft/ Return of Marchbank and Cuningham through VFL

12. Ess - MCG - W = 9 wins
13. Rich - MCG - L **
14. Freo - Home - W = 10 wins
15. STK - Home - W = 11 wins
16. WCE - Away - W = 12 wins
17. Geel - MCG - W = 13 wins
18. GWS - Home - W - 14 wins
19. Adel - Away - W - 15 wins
20. Bris - Away - L
21.Melb - MCG - L
22. Coll - MCG - W = 16 wins

16 wins is Top 4, beat Rich again and its Top 2, guaranteed if we beat GWS away.

Give us the CUP !!!

Give us the CUP !!!

First, teams often make the 8 with 10 wins but I wouldn't want to be relying on percentage the way ours is.

In regards to upcoming wins I think we have 3 likely wins and two likely losses.
Then 10 games could go either way so I'll take 5 wins from those. Gives us 13 total.
5th or 6th.

I think your forecast is more realistic jezza

At this stage I reckon you want to win 13 games to be in. Not sure 11-12 will cut it this year.

I've got us winning 14

8 Adel - Home - W = 6 wins
9 GWS - Away - L
10. Syd - Home -L
11. Coll - MCG - W = 7 wins

BYE: Mid season Draft/ Return of Marchbank and Cuningham through VFL

12. Ess - MCG - W = 8 wins
13. Rich - MCG - L
14. Freo - Home - W = 9 wins
15. STK - Home - L
16. WCE - Away - W = 10 wins
17. Geel - MCG - W = 11 wins
18. GWS - Home - W - 12 wins
19. Adel - Away - W - 13 wins
20. Bris - Away - L
21.Melb - MCG - L
22. Coll - MCG - W = 14 wins

Could easily see us winning some I've marked as losses - GWS in a couple of weeks, Swans, aints and tiggers.
Could also easily see us losing a couple I've marked as wins - Freo, Cats in particular.
In short anywhere from 12 to 16 wins is what we're likely looking at.
12 wins and with our percentage would likely mean 7th or 8th. 13/14 wins would likely mean 5th or 6th and playing at the G in week 1 of the finals. 16 and we're looking at somewhere in the top 4.

After the past 20 years, just making finals will be a major achievement. Whether it takes 11 or 12 wins, as long as we get there, i'll be rapt.
But at this stage, just winning this week will do me.
