Gazza down! Gazza down! How are you coping?

Your Supercoach Mob

So the little master will be having a bit of a spell this weekend – wasn’t that a nasty little last minute surprise community?

The focus for many of us will be who to select as captain for the week.. with any luck you’ve had the VC on Swan or Pendles and if that is the case you would be a very bloody happy little Vegemite.

So how is your team travelling this round community? What are your thoughts around captaincy? Does the fact that the little bald magnet is out end up playing in your favor or are curled up in the fetal position under your computer desk sucking your thumb humming nursery rhymes to yourself wearing your mothers clothing?

  1. Ted says:

    The VC on Pendlebury and now a nice little loophole with Tom Mitchell as sub….!!! Not a bad solution at all I think!!!!!

  2. Mick Klavins says:

    3/571 great start

  3. Nick says:

    have ablett as C and pendles as VC….tom mitchell as emergency so very happy

  4. Goodo says:

    Randomly had the C on Pendles so all good. Hopefully young Tom Mitchell bangs out a 100+ as Emg.

  5. Michael says:

    Chose not to trade this week with only 6 left have 2 donuts happy to cop a few losses this week though

  6. prestontowers says:

    Wines was my sub and Pendlebury my VC – so pretty happy.

  7. bruce says:

    Had Danger as C, Swan as VS, should I take a punt as I’m in a really close struggle?

  8. Fabian says:

    went squibs as VC. Now have to decide which of my under performing premiums to select as the C.

    I think Cox is a safe bet considering late withdrawals and blokes like cotch, JPK and fyfe having had some poor games. .. but tempted to do something stupid like Hawkins

  9. Michael says:

    Had Pendles as VC GAJ as C so very happy with that. Also have backup mids with T Mitchell & B Goodes to replace GAJ & Shuey, so hopefully won't lose too much in points (TM/BG proj 181 vs GAJ/LS 235).
    Thinking ahead for a moment – considering trading Shuey to Stevie J next week.
    Pros: Shuey with hamstring may be more than 2wks; SJ big match performer with better draw; more flexibility with DPP – would have Bartel/SJ in mids & Walker/Rocky in fwds
    Cons: the old sideways trade; only have 2 trades left
    This would pretty much complete my side, going for best overall pos I can get, not worried about league win, currently around 1500th, aiming for top 1000. What do you think Jock?

    • BestCoastEagles says:

      Shuey could be a month out according to Karl Langdon on 6PR radio Perth. 2 trades left is a big concern though.

      • Michael says:

        Hmmm looks like trade is on in that case. BCE I take some comfort in the fact that previous winners have run out of trades prior to finals lol!

    • jockreynolds says:

      Yeah you're up against it with just the 2 trades left in the old back pocket there mate – you need to hold onto those 2 for as long as you possibly can and ride who you have for luck for a few. I'd think you'll probably need to sit Shuey there till he's back mate.

    • BestCoastEagles says:

      News is Shuey could be back as soon as next week.

  10. JB says:

    No bench cover, OUT Shuey and Birchall IN Clisby and Griffin thoughts?

    • Michael says:

      sounds pretty good to me JB, how many trades left?

    • BestCoastEagles says:

      100% with 8 trades left going for League Glory. Griffen is a points machine don't know what your backs are like but Shaw will drop cash and so will Gibbs in the next few weeks. All the Best JB

      • JB says:

        DEF: Goddard Shaw, Gibbs, Hartlett, Ellis, Goodes, (Thurlow, Birchall)
        MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Watson, JPK, J Selwood, Shuey, S Johnson, Fyfe, (T. Mitchell, Martin)

        • BestCoastEagles says:

          Have you thought about Thurlow/Clisby for cover then Shuey/Barlow. Then unload Birch to Heppell next week or is cash the problem ?

          • JB says:

            Cash: $35,300

            was going to do only one trade this week Thurlow to Clisby but need to account for variable change Ablett OUT no mid cover

  11. JB says:

    8 trades left Michael going for League glory

  12. Rosco says:

    The first week I take the VC off Pendles (when I actually need it) & he stars. And my opponent doesn't have Ablett. Griffen VC & now Watson capt. C'mon Griff, surely you can carve up GWS. Let me use a capt loophole on you. Watson as capt worries me a little.

    • BestCoastEagles says:

      Loop hole on Griffo good as he will get Leather poisoning against GWS
      . Supercoach has been a roller coaster ride for most of us this year. Good Luck Rosco

  13. Zimmer says:

    Bloody Hell. Knew I should have put the VC on Pendles. Might go Nic Nat now, and see how he goes. Jobe playing last game on Sunday if he doesn't do the job. Then again, Cotchin against North in what should be a close game is one to think about for the VC too. Seems to score well in the close ones.

    What do you reckon?

  14. BestCoastEagles says:

    Supercoach this year has been a Topsy Turvy affair. It's like i feel into a 44 gallon drum of nipples and came out sucking my thumb.

    • jockreynolds says:

      love it mate hahaa you're a ripper

      • BestCoastEagles says:

        A million Cheers Master Jock, i heard on the grapevine your into surfing if your ever up on the Goldy and keen for a paddle let us know. Have a garage full of boards. Top of the day to ya Mate

  15. Sully321 says:

    Put the VC on Pendles 308 points

    Who to replace ablett crouch or Mitchell?

  16. GunnerHawk says:

    Changed my VC to Pendles at the last minute!!! Had GAJ as my VC & Watson as my C. But after the change, threw the C on GAJ, I do have cover for GAJ in Rockliff, just hope the Rock can score something decent! Disappointed with Gibbs’ 59! Hopefully it IS the only disappointment!!

  17. ShinbonerSpirit says:

    4/469. Gibbs was disappointing (doesn't want to get the hard ball). Walker, Swan and Pendles were impressive. Have got the (C) on Danger.

    Regarding Ablett, I think we should be grateful the Suns mentioned it on Friday, rather than name him and withdraw him seconds before the game.

  18. CashCows says:

    Should i take the bench loophole on Caffers 85 or risk it with staker? thoughts on staker hitting a ton?

  19. matty says:

    Has put me under the pump as I have the VC on Griffen and was counting on Gazza as my backup. Means I missed Pendles 154 so prayin Griffen can come up with 130 plus so I don;t lose too much ground,

    If Griff doesn't come through who would you go as captain out of Dangerfield, Joel Selwood and Barlow?

  20. Joshua says:

    Nic Naitanui or dean cox might have to sit out…. Is it true??

  21. FrontPocket says:

    I'm sitting pretty on 548 from 5 at the moment, and that's without have Pendles' score doubled since he's the VC. Lucky enough to have Pendlebury, Swan, and Cloke. A. Walker tonned up again. Gibbs seemed to be the Carlton barometer; had a good first quarter then just disappeared. Did he cop a knock or did they start tagging him in the 2nd?

    I think Shaw scored half of his SC points in the last quarter. His score was looking a bit skinny at half time.

    • ShinbonerSpirit says:

      Not sure about live SC scores, but he was on 46 DT at 3QT, and 101 DT at FT. Regarding Gibbs, he just didn't want to get the hard ball. And Collingwood's pressure meant practically all of Carlton's possessions had to be contested.

    • Jack says:

      Spot on with Gibbs .. softer than Rexxie Huntt without a blue bomber!! Collingwood didn't need to tag him as he circled around every pack and every contested ball .. and I just brought him in this week!!!

  22. Dylan says:

    Got Pendlebury as VC and loophole on Tommy Mitchell!

  23. Chris says:

    Do I take Nichols score or Jacobs

    • Josh says:

      I would take Nichols score as Jacobs will have it hard against Cox and Nitnatnui

  24. Josh says:

    Who should be my Captain out of Watson, Nitnatnui and Dangerfield or should I play it safe and VCR loophole Griffins 107

  25. Dylan says:

    Who should I put captain Goddard, Fyfe, Terlich or T.Mitchell

    • Chumpy says:

      Fyfe is the best option there, should wreak havoc against the poor old Saints

  26. Liam says:

    Thinking for finals, who would u bring in out of Stevie J, D.Martin or maybe Cyril who could peak come SC finals?

  27. Liam says:

    Wow Embley scores 98 SC points sub in during the 3rd quarter!? Good performance for someone who has been really struggling lately.

  28. devan says:

    Who do i make my captain? Barlow or JPK need a hand, or do i take dangerfields score as he was my vc??? Help My league win depends on it

  29. Tyler says:

    Not flash, Didn't expect Gaz to not play so left the VC on Nic Nat , had the choice of picking him or J Selwood but I got back to late and Joel pulled a 150 out , But my teams pretty solid at the moment ,
    currently sitting at 1815 with Clisby , Fye ,Goddard , Hartlett and T Mitchell (emg for Gaz) to play , so anything over 2200 will be good πŸ™‚

  30. Remy says:

    On 1564 from 13 thanks to Pendles Loophole and lots of help from Swanny, Goldstein, Kruezer, Redden and Priddis.

    Very happy with the way my score could turn out!

    I have JPK, Hannebery, T. Mitchell, Ibbotson, D. Pearce, Jobe, Goddard and Carlisle all to play today.

    What do you guys think I might end up on?!

  31. Dan says:

    Who should I capt Barlow, JKP or Jobe?

  32. Hamish says:

    Jock, oh wise master. Been loving your mighty fantasy football tips this year, you’ve got me on track for a good finals run. After being 2 and three , i held tough on my premiums and have won the last 7!

    Anyway mate, I’m a dreamteamer, and with all these trades I’ve got too many premium eggs in my basket! Especially in the forward line. I wanna upgrade/sideways trade someone. Who do you think? My fwd line is:

    M Stokes

    D Martin

    J Westhoff

    T Cloke

    J Kennedy

    T Rockliff

    L Franklin (emg)

    T Hawkins (emg)

    Maybe Franklin to rioli when he drops? And Rockliff to danniher for more cash?

    • Skintip says:

      Why do you say you have too many premiums in the fwds, then ask for advice on how to choose yet another premium?

      Upgrade your mids, def or rucks.

  33. Aldog says:

    Can anyone explain why JJK did not pick up the winning goal bonus last night in Eagles game?

  34. Dee says:

    1804/16…. Captain played!

  35. ShinbonerSpirit says:

    16/1848 with my captain Dangerfield. Historically, whenever I've had a very good Friday/Saturday, the proceeding Sunday has always been appalling fantasy wise. Fingers crossed.

  36. cotchandmurph says:

    17\1965 With JPK T Mitchell Goddard Heppel Hartlett, hoping for a 2400+ score

  37. cotchandmurph says:

    This year has been the year of inconsistant defenders. You have got the likes of
    You all string together 3-4 good games and then average 70 for the next month
    I feel like i can always relly on
    Goddard Heppel Hibbard
    Has anyone else found this really frustrating

    • BestCoastEagles says:

      It's been the Killer for me most of the season. There is always one or two that will Spud it week in week out. Hopefully all will be good from here on in.

  38. TheTurk says:

    Im Looking at scoring 2435. buddy and nic nat costing me a 2500 at this stage

    • BestCoastEagles says:

      Nice, most of us are in the same boat just need Barry Mitchell Son to crank out a ton+.

  39. Favalinko says:

    hey guys Barlow or Watson for c. What your thoughts?

  40. Tim Darbyshire says:

    Staker or goodes for the backline if i had to trade which one who?

  41. JPM92 says:

    2161 from 18. will be a chance at the weekly

  42. Michael says:

    1960 from 18, looking at just under 2400 if all goes well, Ibbotson, Jobe, Heppell & Goddard to come. NicNat, Gibbs, Cox, Buddy, Roughead, Ellis all underperformed to varying degrees so reasonably happy considering. Also had Staker & Nicholls on the pine so lost 69 points worst case there. Thank god for T Mitchell, what a star!
    Jock would score do you think is par for this round? Thinking prob 2250-2300.

    • Michael says:

      Hmmm…. 2400 was a touch optimistic haha, looks like 2256 for me!

      Over Projected: Pendles +31 (VC – gold!), Swanny +38, Cloke +26, Walker +10, Rocky +23, Hanley +42, Priddis +26, JPK +6, Goodes +29, JJK +14, T Mitchell +7.

      Under projected: Ellis, Bartel -7, Roughead -13, NicNat -33, Ibbotson -33, Jobe -95 (!!), Heppell -32, Gibbs -55 (!!), Buddy -35, Cox -22

      On the pine: Clisby -20, Nicholls +12, Gorringe -1, Staker +34 (NO!!!!)

      Using Staker instead of Buddy & Nicholls instead of Cox would've brought me 2321 instead – makes a difference!! Oh well, woulda coulda shoulda – didn't!

  43. chris says:

    gonna cry myself to sleep tonight jock, need your podcast to cheer me up mate! (put this in your podcast haha)

    tried for the 3rd week in a row to use the ruck loophole with nicholls and Jacobs, didn't work out and had Jacobs onfield πŸ™
    didn't hear about the news of abletts injury until the Collingwood game started, meaning I couldn't vc either swan or pendles. decided to vc cox and captain jobe and he got injured.. was predicted 2400 πŸ™

    not gonna get anywhere near that now.. probably 2250

  44. GunnerHawk says:

    Dammit! Jobe down! Was on course for about 2360+!! Now looking at 2250+!! Had Rocklilff covering GAJ, but really annoyed now as Nicholls' 99, Staker's 110 & Hrovat's 83 are warming the pine!!!! That's 110+ pts there!!

  45. Richo says:

    What could be worse than not realising that GAJ wasn't playing and leaving C on him… having the V on Jobe for S.F.A!!! Damn it. Hurting πŸ™

  46. udi says:


  47. Adam V says:

    Tyre 35 touches only 89 points was he going at like 10%???

    • Adam V says:

      Fyfe I mean

      • Ando says:

        Don't get it either mate, he had decent efficiency too, feeling ripped off for sure

        • BALLS says:

          High number of clangers screwed him.

          • Dee says:

            Supercoach scoring is rigged! Absolutely fukt…. Dodgey fkn game!

          • Tyler says:

            True , but he had more handballs then kicks and almost every one of his handballs were effective and the majority were contested and he had what 35 touches ? i predicted he'd get at least 105 but only 82 points ? shocked.

  48. BestCoastEagles says:

    Just when the Cake was looking decorated Jobe goes down like tinnies in a dust storm. Oh well still have beers in the fridge. So life ain't that Bad. As coaches say one bloody week at a time. Back to the trade table. Come in Barlow.

  49. Robert says:

    What to do with Watson

  50. NutSack says:

    Ouch for Watson owners and double ouch for Watson C's. 2410 with VC Pendles. No thanks going to Bibbs, Nic Nat, Heppell, Franklin, Cox and Ibots. Special thanks to Swan, Pendles and Jelwood.

  51. Remy says:

    Jake Carlisle burned me with 32 SC, and then there is Jobe.
    On 24 SC 14 min into the 1st quarter when Westhoff decided to ruin his collarbone!
    Reports say 4 weeks, is it worth trading him out!?
    His price is obviously going to go way down town!
    Do we Trade or Hold?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
    Trade in options?

    • ShinbonerSpirit says:

      Personally, I've got 4 trades left and a lot of other trash I need to take out. I might have to hold. I'll reassess later in the week when the severity of the injury is slightly clearer.

  52. Remy says:

    In roughly six weeks Who reckons Watson will be an absolute ripper trade in option?

  53. Dee says:


  54. ShinbonerSpirit says:

    Got off to a great Saturday, and limped to a measly 2227 thanks to a horrific Sunday. Story of my life.

    • BestCoastEagles says:

      I Can't link up the whole weekend at all this year always have one poor day. Managed to get 2334 was looking at upwards of 2500. Watson and a couple of spud performers put paid to that. I could smell a rat after Friday's pumping scores.

      • ShinbonerSpirit says:

        Was looking absolutely awesome on Saturday night, with only Gibbs, Cox and NicNat going under 90. Then Sunday happened. What's worse, is that I brought in Jobe this week. 4 trades left at the moment, and I'm completely and utterly screwed.

        • BestCoastEagles says:

          Have had Watson from the start. On 5 trades currently no cash so i need to double trade to get anyone decent. Unless i go J Selwood. but i thinking i need myself a Barlow.

          • ShinbonerSpirit says:

            Getting rid of Birchall myself and holding Jobe. Moving Goodes to defence (a shining point in a bad week) and bringing ROK in. Bringing in Barlow would mean keeping Goodes until at least halfway through the finals. The ROK trades leaves me with 3 trades entering the finals barring anymore carnage.

            • BestCoastEagles says:

              ROK is solid had him the last two years the only reason i didn't choose him this year because he lost his swing. He has been throwing out some great scores the last five weeks. You have given me food for thought.

  55. Anonymous says:

    7 trades left with Birchall, Watson, Shuey who to trade OUT?

    • ShinbonerSpirit says:

      Keep Shuey. Should be back soon. With the others, it depends on whether you're having more issues in your defence or midfield. If you're like me and your defence looks like garbage, I'd take Birchall out. If not, Watson.

    • BestCoastEagles says:

      I have heard that Shuey will be back to face Freo next week don't take that as gospel because i also heard Karl Langdon on 6PR Perth radio on thursday said he could miss a month. Keep your ear to the ground on that one. If you have good coverage in you mid's (Mitchell , etc ) i would keep Watson. Then Birchall to Hanley if you dont have him he is going for a song.

  56. Jay says:

    Watson out with broken collarbone!! Considering keeping him on the bench and playing Tom Mitchell or trade in a Swan/Barlow – only have 4 trades left?

    • BestCoastEagles says:

      All depends on your situation, i am in the same boat. I am too impatient to have Quality like Watson on the bench.The league i am in if your not scoring over 2100-2200 you got a great chance of getting Flogged. So i will pick myself up a new model Barlow

      • Jay says:

        Fair Point – managed to get 2371 with Gazza 0 and Watson 24, so team is fairly settled – so quietly confident with Mitchell on the field especially next week with Swans facing GWS, but Barlow or a Swan are very tempting as well!!

    • ShinbonerSpirit says:

      If you have Titch + four trades, I'd probably go for hold. Depends on the final diagnosis, of course.

  57. What i don’t understood is in reality how you are now not actually a lot more neatly-preferred than
    you may be right now. You’re so intelligent. You know thus considerably in the case
