A new season brings new hope and expectation from fans of all 18 clubs.
Whether it's a new recruit, a gun draftee, a big off-season trade or a player who's quietly been progressing on a list, there's always plenty of new storylines to look out for.
Terry Wallace named the player from every club who he's looking forward to seeing most in 2020.
“He’s my number one for Adelaide, they’ve got rid of Josh Jenkins so they can play Fogarty in the regular basis.”
“He’s my Brisbane man.”
“He’s been one of those players that comes into the competition with so much talent and expectation but hasn’t really lived up to it at this stage. This is a new, fresh start for him so I can’t wait to see what he delivers for the Blues.”
“He’s what they’re missing at the moment, they’re not great at stoppage and he’s the big bull. We saw what he was able to do during the finals a year earlier. They had injuries left, right and centre last year so he’s a big watch for me.”
"I’ve seen him kick five or six in a game, you don’t do that by accident and I think he’s got the ability to make it. He’s a nice size but he just hasn’t been able to get a consistent run at it.”
“With Tom Hawkins just about done, Esava to me has shown signs at times that he can be a genuine star of this competition. He hasn’t put it all together yet but he’s one I’m going to watch with real interest.”
“If he can stand up to be the player that Hawthorn hope he can be, he’ll be really important.”
“His non-delivery last year to the Melbourne football club and where they finished…we know already there’s questions surrounding him at the moment. They just have to get him up and going.”
“Him, Paul Ahern and Aiden Bonar – they’re three young guys who are big sized, if they can come in and add to the midfield…even if one or two can take a big step, that’s my big watch for North Melbourne.”
“I just think that if he makes it as a player for Port Adelaide, he probably saves Ken Hinkley’s job. He’s promised so much but hasn’t really delivered. I’m watching and critiquing Charlie Dixon to see if he can make a difference in 2020.”
“The excitement machine that he was last year…the Richmond supporters got around him. Sydney Stack is really one to keep an eye one for Tigers fans.”
“They’ve tried to get that key forward in for a long period of time, it’ll be a real interest to see how he goes about his footy.”
“He’s just a star isn’t he.”
