I know folk keep saying it was only a scratch match but having sat through them looking for positives I was really scratching to get many.

Stan Wright back and showed a bit in the Cl game, Jonesy did well, Kuek looked he could blossom at any moment. The lad from Subi Edwards- Baldwin may be a good inclusion (although his best player rating was ,,,,,,, ) Fullgrabbe and Watts will be good down back with Eaton. Christian Amerduri if left in the league will be a good one and so I can make cases for good ones but against a resurgent Subi we would have to improve our skills, game plan and overall commitment. I can only hope it comes from Ramsay and Robertson and their leadership. 

Robertson seems to be a target for other teams and he has to wear it and play football at the high level he can.

I'm not sure if you're just playing things down a bit Grump but I reckon your mob will be ok this year based on the back end of 2020 plus I really rate Barnard as a coach. He should impart some toughness into the group. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if they finish top 5. This should be a good game and looking forward to it although quite a few of the Subi players have had an interrupted preseason so who knows I guess.

Not playing anything down just being honest in my assessment of what have seen thus far in the play and demeanor around the huddles.

Nothing would please me more to be totally wrong and that Barnard is as good as you suggest.

We will just wait and see if my comments come back to haunt me or prove me to be a better judge that I think I am.

All reports is Barnard is a hard taskmaster with everyone at the club.  Very similar to his former coach Micale. One difference is that Micale had a lot better cattle to work with. So I think this approach has a very short shelf life without winning frequently. We couldn’t recruit anyone for a few reasons which probably limits our competitiveness.

So why could you not recruit, thought EP were cashed up from the Eagle Years

The reason is that we reached our points limit and unlike other clubs we stick to the limit. Couple of players from tiggers, one from subi and another from WP. It is not abt cash it is abt points even tho' we have a concession.

had a look at our senior list in the footy budget  which seems more up to date then the club's website.we have 53 one point players and 10 players who are worth 58 points which seems to add up to about 111 points .i t is just under the 120 cap i think we have.as points caps vary from year to year we need to be careful in recruiting and may need to review who is worth keeping or free up points for a better import next year.we did win the reserves premiership last year so we need to develop those who have some talent.thanks grump for cleaning up the mess that was starting to pollute this topic.

2021 WAFL Rules & Regulations rule 2.8 gives EPFC 125 cumulative player points and up to 45 protected players. This is the same as 2020.

It was obviously my incorrect understanding that we had reached a limit. Also it was made clear at the AGM that we had tried but for one reason or another not got anyone until the fella from Subi came on board. Thx Factor
