Alright, the start of the new season is only 4 weeks away so it's time
we started thinking about predictions and the tipping comp.
First question - Is there going to be a tipping comp this year and if so
in what format and who is offering to run it?
Second question - for those of us that saw the team training and the
Perth Glory match over in Perth, what are your thoughts on the team, the
depth of the squad, strong/weak links in the team, likely finishing
position etc, etc.
I think we have got loads of enthusiasm in the team with all the young
lads raring to go and I think we have enough depth in most of the
positions.  Whilst Iwelumo was never going to be a starter in the first
team, he did offer some height/strength and experience from the bench.
I think Vokes can make the step up but I would like to see us try and
get a target man on loan for a few months just in case.  
The other area I think we need to improve is the centre of defence.
Whilst Bobo Balde looked commanding in the air, I'm not convinced he's
got the pace to keep up with premiership strikers, so even if we sign
him I reckon he's back up at best.  Ideally I'd like to see us get
someone with pace & experience but maybe getting Mancienne on loan would
be a good option and hope that his speed/talent/potential will make up
for his lack of regular experience at Premiership level.
Finally, I reckon Thick Mick is a decent bloke on a personal level
particularly as he took time out to come to my hotel on Saturday morning
to receive a NSWolves shirt, but I'll still reserve judgement on his
tactical abilities until we start coming up against decent opposition.
