2021 saw Carlton part ways with coach David Teague after another inconsistent season. In his place they have appointed former Brisbane Lions champion Michael Voss who gets his second chance at coaching an AFL side.

The Blues have recruited Fremantle star Adam Cerra and Swans utility George Hewitt to bolster their already promising midfield stocks. Excitement is growing around Carlton and they are one of the most fascinating teams to watch in 2022.
