I know it would mate, it's just disappointing that although not a south supporter, I've spent most of my life very close to souths oval and it seems the club is forever satisfied with it's finances rather than on field performances.

Would expect something ignorant from you Smithy.

If you arte trying to make a joke, then it's backfired on you

If you dont know about other teams good players , then its better to shut up!

Must have had some selection criteria to it, otherwise Ryan Griffen would have to be there.

Thought I’d give this thread a bump and pull together a team of the decade for 2010-19. Self indulgent stuff, but here it goes..

The decade saw South record 88 wins and 5 draws from 196 games, feature in 4 finals series, collect another wooden spoon in 2010, and be led by Ron Fuller, Kym Cobb (briefly), Brad Gotch, Garry Hocking and Jarrod Wright.

The majority of highlights arose during Gotch’s 3 year reign, including the semi-final thumping of Sturt in 2014. Unfortunately 4 straight finals were lost following that Sturt match, a double chance squandered in 2016 after going 14-4 in the regular season. The residual impact of the dreadful ‘naughties’ lingered in the early part of this decade, while off the field the club felt the pinch financially. Night footy commenced, but unfortunately ceased following the postponed game v the Ravens. The club’s ‘no’ vote in 2013 earned many admirers. Overall though, another decade is added to the premiership drought.

Minimum of 3 years (or roughly 50 games) service required to be considered.

FB: Tarak Redigolo (96), Brad Crabb (180), Tom Fields (88)
HB: Jake Veide (105), Josh Thewlis (72), Matt Rose (103)
C: Nick Murphy (109), Xavier Gotch (132), Toby Stribling (52)
HF: Nathan Daniel (100), Brett Eddy (71), Abe Davis (50)
FF: Peter Rolfe (73), Michael Wundke (58), Brent Macleod (58)
R: Keegan Brooksby (91), Nick Liddle (191), Joel Cross (174)
INT: Daniel Bass (101), Matt Rankine (80), Brede Seccull (66)
EMG: Joe Haines (64), Alex Cailotto (84), Sam Overall (67)

Coach- Brad Gotch

Few random stats to finish on:

Biggest win- South 22.8 (140) def ADE 4.4 (28), Round 11, 2018 @ Noarlunga
Biggest win (disregarding glorified trial games)- South 21.10 (136) def WA 6.5 (41), Round 18, 2016 @ Richmond
Biggest defeat- South 5.8 (38) def by STU 24.11 (155), Round 14, 2010 @ Unley
South 3.11 (29) def by WA 23.8 (146), Round 21, 2013 @ Richmond. Fuller’s final match.
Biggest win streak – 6 games (R15 to SF 2014, and R1 to R7 2016)
Biggest losing streak - 17 games (R6, 2010 to R1, 2011)
Biggest goal haul- Brett Eddy 8 v WA (2016) and Michael Wundke 8 v STU (2011)

SAFC- 55 years...
StKFC- 53 years..

How many did Brett Eddy play before being drafted by Port? He won the KF for South this decade.

Edit - just seen above
