How does 2003 look for Essendon?

well what of the Red and Black army,Yep they're going through a transition again,Question marks are roaming over their heads It's goodbye to Premiership trio heffernan,caracella and Blumfield and the Injury Prone Steve Alessio has been delisted not to mention the 2nd retirement of Paul salmon.
It seems to be a huge Mystery what 2003 holds for the Bombers and what does Slim Sheedy Have up his sleeve this time round,well if there is'nt a fit Hird an in form Matty lloyd and a consistent jason Johnson the Good old Bombers look to be in for a tough season.Anyhow feel free to state how you think the Bombers will go next year.

teehee

"They picked on the wrong man - and the wrong country. It was like pouring petrol onto a fire as far as I was concerned.

There's an old saying that the dog that barks loudest never bites. They did a lot of barking but we bit them pretty hard. Uruguay's attitude just showed how scared they were of us - it was their last resort."

Bad.

They are going through a transition period and due to the salary cap, they are being forced to lose some keys players.

Out: Caracella, Blumfield, Heffernan, Salmon, Alessio

In: Cupido

Their major problem will be in the middle of the ground. They lost 2 ruckmen and 3 midfielders and haven't yet picked up any one to fill those spots. Their only ruckman is David Hille and he isn't anything special. This is how I rate their squad:

Champions
James Hird
Matthew Llyod
Sean Wellman
Dustin Fletcher
Jason Johnson

Class Players
Damien Peverill
Mark Johnson
Dean Solomon
Adam Ramanauskas
Paul Barnard
Joe Misiti

Good but Inconsistant
Scott Lucas
Mark Mercuri
Gary Moorcroft
Mark McVeigh
Dean 'Fatty' Rioli

Good Youngsters
Danny Jacobs
Mark Bolton
Damien Cupido
Aaron Hennemen

Average Players
David Hille
Jordon Bannister
Robert Forster-Knight

That's most of them. I don't think they will go too good. In fact I reckon they will miss the finals.

I will tell you's something !!!
Essendon will have a poor year by their standards, But damn they picked up a gun in Adam McPhee coming home to Victoria. The guy left Freo on the best terms , he was honest with the club as saying he wanted to go back home early in the year & to trade him to the best advantage of the Fremantle FC .
