    Who is our future Cleary in this line-up? I mean the solid first grader who can go on to be a top coach.

    I remember thinking it was a mistake letting him go. Sure ridge was a great player, but he screwed us in the end.

    Ivan went on to play for a few clubs and was a strong player. He would have improved our early 2000s sides, and now we would have a tough and creative coach.

    Glenn Stewart may have been the type to progress in this way? Ballin has good potential. I hope the club is aware of this.

    I thought Cleary was an ok player but not great, I don't think he was really that much better than Reeves. Seeing the likes of Ridge it was hard to see the ones that followed.

    I think the players that are going to stay on and be huge are the guys like Bhurer.

    He's certainly not an average first grader, but I have always thought Foz will be a top coach one day. He has the mongrel and the brains for it.

    Foz's decision making ability has taken a big hit lately. At this rate he'd take about 6 months to pick a 17...

    I think someone like Brent Kite could be a coach.

    Didnt he used to run our video sessions when he was with us?

    I'd like to see Matty B become the next strength and conditioning coach. Already qualified and has learnt from the best, the great Donny Singe!

    Love matty b but there is a huge difference between an s & c coach and a personal trainer. He's not qualified to run a footy departments s & c. most of them have spent 5 + years at uni. Theres a lot more than just telling some blokes to exercise.

    Maybe when he hangs up the boots, he could do his apprenticeship under Donny while the club puts him through the required courses. My point being it would be great to keep him around the club, and this is a field where he already has an interest.

    I think strength and conditioning is covered - we need the next crop of actual coaches identified - football smarts and communication skills
