Yes K. He's trying to follow in his brothers steps.

They're up to 6, now. They may win 7 but they'll struggle against West Coast, Richmond and Geelong. With a bit of luck, they could get up to 14th. Dizzying heights for Carlton. I hope none of them suffer from vertigo.

Catch 22

For us, it would be better if they win 10 games this year as it might help us if Geelong, WCE ad Richmond all drop games to Carlton.

Posted this too soon. I watched St Kilda play last night. Carlton won't win 7.

Kayo's little scene-setter for last week's Adelaide Carlton blockbuster is "The Blues continue to win, and they could move up to 14th if they can secure another victory at the MCG against the Crows."

What a ride the bluebaggers are giving their supporters! No chance of any altitude sickness for them this year! It's the gentle curves of the Scenic Railway between 18th and 12th, rather than up and down the Big Dipper for Carlton. Still, it's what passes for "stability" at Princes Park.

So, everything is falling into place for the Blues in their assault on 14th, with St Kilda losing to Adelaide. Carlton's supporters will, I expect, all be very excited to see how this Big Match goes.

Sadly, the weight of expectations proved a little too much for the boys from Spudses Park. With the world watching to see whether they could grasp the nettle and push to 14th, they failed by the barest of margins (well, 24 points, really - but when you're as bad as Carlton, that's the barest of margins). They now, unfortunately, sit 16th.

No Daisy, no Carlton.

Sadly we'd have preferred it if Carlton won yesterday. And we'll also be hoping they can defeat Richmond this week coming. Shocked

But one thing thats funny from yesterday, was the Carlton supporters that got to Marvel early would have had to listen to our club song as the VFL team had a big win over the Northern Blues.

Sadly, it looks like the Carlton lads might struggle to reach 14th, now. They are two games and % behind North with just 2 games to play. Still, if they're as good as we think, they should be able to beat Geelong at Geelong by 130 points in the last round.

They fell about 190 points short of their aim against Geelong. Anyway, they finished a courageous 16th with 7 wonderful wins. This marks a turning point for them. They haven't won at least 7 games since 2016 and 2014. In 2017 and 2015, they went immediately backwards.

Here's hoping for more of the same from the boys from Spudces Park.
