PODCAST: Round 6 ANZAC Community podcast

Published by Jock on

Supercoach 2014 preseason podcast

Will you paint the fence with your trades this week?

Or will you deploy a double downgrade to take advantage of the plump succulent young livestock fit for slaughter?

These are just a few of the BIG issues facing the community this week. ย Again members of the community have stepped up to the plate in this very special ANZAC Day Community podcast – lets get stuck right in.

So excited to listen to this. Thanks Jock.

Chook

Is it worth trading out Langford for cutler and upgrade hunter to griffin ?

mightymicks

Time to tune in to some more wisdom from jock and the community, bloody best time of the week.

Crowmagnon

Thanks jock. Lest we forget.

Aaron

Jock, what do you think of JPK this week? Good B/E, nice POD, great form and with Kieran Jack out against the Dees I expect him to get 150 plus. Any thoughts

Cameron

Brandon Jack is out, not Listen. Nevertheless,JKP has been playing well within the guts. Should be no different this week, should have a field day if anything vs Melbourne. Glad I’ve had him since round1!

Cameron

Brandon Jack is out, not kieren. Nevertheless,JKP has been playing well within the guts. Should be no different this week, should have a field day if anything vs Melbourne. Glad I’ve had him since round1!

judd0

That sounds pretty fruitful to me Aaron, bit of a dark horse.
I get scary flash backs from previous years though with his inconsistency. But I like it

Aaron

I am such an idiot I thought Kieran was out haha but nevertheless I think I will take the punt this week and pray to god his form continues

The_Darwin_Ducks

I think its brandon jack who’s out not kieran but yes i think jpk could go big and i might look at getting him in

mightymicks

Great question Stewart, was wondering about the same thing, think I want to go Langdon to St.Nick though,

Cameron

Cutler named on bench, looking at who else is there(Taylor, Raines, Rockliff)…..Vest material, wouldnt get much better than that in the future IMO.
Someone please disprove this!!!

mightymicks

I would love to but it's got to be out of him and maybe Taylor.

Sulzeer

hoping for the vest as I paint my fence this week and then grab Cutler next week for Langdon

Crowmagnon

Hadn't thought of that. Bring on the vest.

Kev

The sub doesn't have to come from those named on the bench

Stickers

Mumford > nicnat am I nuts? Please talk me out if it

Aaron

Wait and see if Nic Nat can lift his game up and become a bit more consistent before you take the punt. Mummy will we returning soon so might as well hold for a little longer.

throttlefinger

Yes. Don't do it. You've held out this long. You can hold out one more week. Save the trade and reap rewards of sticking fat with Mummy.

And yes, I'm doing the same.

Gilly

I agree Throttle, no point trading the big fella now, hopefully back next week. I have been able to use the emergency loophole with currie and Derickx. It’s gonna hurt this week having to rely on Derickx score

throttlefinger

Well Gilly, while you're suffering through Derickx score, just imagine me eating a donut for Currie and Mummy being out.

Well played, sir.

General Soreness

Great minds (or complete madness) think alike. Copping the donut for mummy also still holding Titch but have coverage, they better be back next week. Double down seems more important especially this early in the year than plugging a hole for a week or two.

throttlefinger

Agree, General. When I kept look over ruck options, nothing seemed strong enough to waste a trade on. May come back to wish I'd trade but don't I'll regret it too much. As you said, other trades more important right now.

Gilly

Too generous Throttle, I think it’s a more a case of ass than class.

throttlefinger

Hahahaha. Sometimes ass makes the best class.

Hawks win

Trading thurlow for. Nic nat. Tyson for Robertson. Rucks sandy,mummy,nicnat.currie. Set for year coz one is gonna spud it up.

throttlefinger

Bold and badass, HW. Bold and badass. Your ass is officially ruck donut-proof.

canman1306

Few Rookie Dilemmas boys

Get on Fasolo or Lloyd or Neither
Think Fasolo can keep going and be this yeas Walker
Lloyd has Hawthorn and Geelong in his next 2 ten the bye so I don't think he will score well.

Also who is better option out of Robertson or Cutler?

Aaron

I went cutler personally, good defence downgrade options are going to be hard to come by this season.

WombatsFC

Hi Canman,
Get on both Lloyd and Fasolo and then use 1 of them to upgrade to premium mid/for before the rnd 8 bye.

Todd

Jock, what are your thoughts on Tom Mitchell and should I be worrying about getting cutler into my side

Jimihk

I have the exact same conundrum. Gutted with T Mitchell wasn't named today. Cutler looks the last of the decent DEF downgrades for a while, but if you're crafty with you cash could just directly upgrade your DEF rookies to premo in a couple of weeks without the need for a DEF downgrade.

judd0

Tyson out
Dangerfield to Mids for a week or 2
Lloyd from Richmond in own forward, thoughts?
thinking I will trade out JKH in a week or 2 so then I can swap danger back into forward line

zimmerbd

Didn't answer my tweet today, but the question was covered in tonights podcast. Thanks for that Jock. Have a good one.

Mango

Great show as always Jock. Struggling to decide out of a couple of moves.
1) Tyson out, Dunstan out, Taylor to midfield, JPK in and Lloyd in
2) Tyson or Dunstan out and Jackson Merrett out, Taylor to midfield, Fasolo and Lloyd in and have 358K in the bank.
I've also got Josh Kelly in my team who's out with hamstring tightness so could move him out instead of tyson.

jstocker59

Cheers Jock – went the 1 up 1 down – paint the fence approach this week – Caddy to N. Riewoldt & Tyson to Robertson. Gives me five forward premiums in a line that has been killing me and still 365000 in cash. Kept Ellis to trade out for another midfield premo probably Griffen next week.

rikko

who to cut to bring in Fyfe? Dunstan, Daisy Thomas or Dom Tyson? thoughts community?

Sulzeer

Daisy's BE of 77 is still pretty low, so I wouldnt trade yet, id prob look to move him on when Carlton have the bye, Dunstan plays an average at best Brisbane side, BE 87 isn't great and he probably wont get it but hes a better chance to get close to it over Tyson who has a BE of 98 and playing Sydney. Tyson for me,

Jimihk

I agree with Sulzeer. Now that Tyson is hitting his plateau he's ripe to go, that is unless you need to keep him for the bye rounds.

rikko

thanks for the input guys much appreciated

canman1306

Thoughts on skipping Lloyd and Grabbing Robertson instead Takes My MBR Structure -> 9-6-15
Aish-> Robertson is Locked
Do I use my second trade to go:
Tyson -> Griffen leaving me with 143K
Tyson -> Lloyd leaving me with 551K but means I will have to play one of Crouch/Robertson onfield
Thoughts?

crowls

go cash option and risk possibly 50-60 points less this week. Or if you need to win your league game take griffen now

Cozza

Tyson>Lloyd for mine. Lloyd will generate great cash this week and you will be set for some nice bye round upgrades with that cash

Caz

Hi jock and the community, thoughts about Tyson Down to Robinson and daisy thomas up to jpk or mcveigh.

Kev

Sound good. Grab jpk

Rowdy

who would be the bigger priority Cutler (def) or Lloyd (fwd)

Jimihk

Lloyd for me, the upcoming cash generation is too good to ignore.

Kev

Agreed. Forward line rooks are even more scarce than backline ones. JS is assured with King out

Jimihk

As I suspect it is for many, this is a key round for me. I'm throwing myself at the mercy of the community. Should I double down, and if so which double down should I take? Or do I follow Crouching's wisdom and down up?

I already have $288,500 in the warchest, here's my options:

1) Double down: Ellis to Robertson, swap Taylor FWD for T Mitchell, then Taylor for Lloyd. Leaves me with $526,900.
2) Double down: trade Ellis, swing Langdon MID and bring in Cutler, trade taylor for Lloyd. Leaves me with $526,900.
3) Down up: Ellis to Robertson, swap Taylor FWD for T Mitchell, then T Mitchell for J Selwood/Griffen or the like). Will leave me with between $230k – $350k.
4) Down up: Taylor and Mitchell out for Lloyd and J Selwood/Griffen in. Leave me with between $150k – 270k.

Totally stumped on this one, but I'm sure to many of the community the path is clear.

Sulzeer

Dont touch Selwood, BE 180, Round 8 bye, after that is the time to snatch him up

Paint the fence, Griffen I cant see getting much cheaper, BE 100 this week, youd expect him to be able to get that comfortably

Jimihk

Cheers Sulzeer.

I know the immediate issues with Selwood, but even though he has a huge BE, he's not projected to dip below 600k so I'm not too concerned. Looking as him as a season long keeper. The rd 8 bye is more concerning.

What's the deal with Griffen. I know he torn it up for a couple of months last year and then fell away. He's really tempting at his price but I'm just not sold that he will be a top 8 MID come the GF. Does anyone know what his issues were/are?

Sulzeer

I was the same last week with Petrie, i took him at 414k, thinking he would get close to his BE but he didnt… but he will come good, stick by your premiums..

Griffen didn't have much of a preseason, if any, averaged 116 last season from 20 games, not the worst run in at the end of the season Saints, North, Swans and GWS in final game of season at Etihad, could be important if your in your league GF, hes a proven premo and a POD

canman1306

I like both Down Ups. Just depends what Rookie Selection you want

Jimihk

Cheers canman, it'll be Lloyd if I have to choose. I'm just concerned about letting a good rookie slip past this week with so few on the horizon.

MTt

Who to put on the field,

Cutler, langford?

Going away this weekend, and hoping cutler isnt sub

Kev

Put Cutler sub. Langford will probably get the tagging job on cotch this week

@HJ_Mitch

Deep thoughts and memories with the podcast, Jock. Imust admit I never went up to the top of Olivers Hil with thoughts in my mind about SuperCoach. It was alway about the bird I was with … but that's another story.
Aah the memories, one of the birds from Toorak College was double jointed!
Anyway, I digress.
I am enthused that that the three boys I have a background with are high up in the SuperCoach estimations.
1. Liuke McDonald – keep. He has always been a doer and will never give in.
2. Tom Cutler – always has had the class but needed to get to the top level to perform at his best. Keep
3. Jack Billings – the best I coached. Premium silk. Forget him at your peril.

Anyway, that's all. I'm lying back now and thinking about Olivers Hill and Toorak College.
Oh, the memories…..

Blake

Currie out! Oh no ๐Ÿ™

Cop a doughnut or make a trade? (Sandi Mumford Currie Longer)

SCaddict

You've come this far with Mummy I think you have to stay the course and pray to the fantasy footy gods that he is back next week as the Giants seem to be indicating.

But geez I hope he can repay the faith you've shown in him.

Bray

Who would be a better option to get in Cutler, or Robinson.?

Blake

Robertson has much better job security. He'd be my pick

Bray

Cheers mate just thinking with the lack of upcoming defenders and a few mids to still debut or rise in price (Honeychurch, Hallahan, etc) that I should jump on cutler now and down grade one of my miss to a Honeychurch in the coming weeks.?

crowls

Agree with second option. I am in same boat. Need to move clurey, rohan on and dead set keen on robertson. Cant do it all. So did clurey to cutler, rohan to lloyd and boy does the team look so much better. Still have mcdonald/langdon for one mid bench spot and ellis in the other.

Next week. ellis/tyson/langdon/tmitch as possible upgrades for prem mids or prem def.
may have to oneup one down. as only have 250 in the bank.

Beady Eye

I reckon the way around this is to prioritise getting a premium defensive line ASAP.

Use the cash generated from the ongoing stream of rookie mids to upgrade in defence while downgrading in midfield (rather than downgrading all over the field).

Ocker

MAGNIFICENT PODCAST JOCK, The memories of fallen friends and mates hit home again, The Last Post reduced me to tears once more.
I will compose myself and come back online for a while when I do.

Cheers Bloke.

Ando

Xav Ellis for Swan or Swallow?
Just thinking that getting Swallow means i can have Tommy Langdon in the guts giving me an extra degree of freedom when the byes hit.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated

@HJ_Mitch

Ando, I've got Swallow. I am very happy with him.

SCaddict

Think Swan is probably the better value right now especially when you are just comparing him against another Rd8 bye player.

Also would give you a POD as plenty have Swallow and not that many have Swanny right now though that is a two pronged blade.

However Swallow has been a rock of premium consistency and needs to be in all our defences at some point so it's a tough call.

Gazza

Ellis > Billings
Dunstan > Lloyd

Was going to run with Robinson instead of Billings but thinking that Billings has a higher ceiling

throttlefinger

Hey Gazza. Was considering the same for Ellis but Robertson's price and job security outweighs the one good game and DPP that Billings has. Also think Billings will be a better player in long run but physically Robertson is built like brick shithouse and heard engine is strong for his age.

Also feel you could get some more moola from Dunstan. If you can wait until the bye to cull, may give you just that extra amount to get that extra special prem.

Ocker

You cannot go past Robertson this week.
Billings I have looked at very closely and may come into my team LATER. Give him another week he wont go up as much as Robertson, Unfortunately I have to stay with Dunstan this week but not disappointed with that as I have Ellis and Thomas out and have to do the double down to Robertson and Lloyd.

Throttle right again.

Cheers.

throttlefinger

Hey Ocker! Very interesting thought of bringing in Billings later. Given the rook desert that we'll be living in soon, that could be a very clever way of trading down a wore-out rook.

Ocker

Goodaye Throttle, Just stuck this week with team selections.
Have Ellis and Matt Thomas not playing this week so have to replace with rookies for cash generation coming into byes. Was seriously thinking no Lloyd but that would be stupid. Can cope with one more less on-field for round 8. Team has to be set and forget for the weekend because I will not be in any condition to worry about SC. (Anzac Dawn Ceremony)

Cheers Bloke.

throttlefinger

Please pardon my Yankee ignorance, but what takes place at a Anzac Dawn Ceremony?

Brought in Pav and Robertson. Some money for next week to replace Caddy and probably Langdon. Holding onto Mummy with hopes that he's back next week.

Ocker

See my post above and it may give you a clue my friend.

Cheers.

throttlefinger

Wow. I understand. Thanks for sharing, Ocker.

Ocker

pav and Robertson sounds like a good move mate.

BlueBalls FC

G'day there Jock

Loved the podcast'

I have michie in the mids doing nothing? Do you think I need to address that or just leave him there?

Also, looking at the rookie options, I am sold on Lloyd, but in the mids I'm convinced that paying a little extra to get Crouch into my team is the way to go. Gives me another week to look at Robertson and he'll only rise about 50k

Thanks in advance

Jon

Thanks Jock, a wonderful podcast. Whilst this was covered briefly in the podcast, I have a bit of a dilemma thanks to Danger's massive 192 last week. I always thought that Danger's starting price was a bit high for round 1 and was hoping to pick him up in round 9. However, his 192 and weak draw for the next two weeks means he may well go back up to his starting price – or even higher. So should I trade Matt Thomas for Danger whilst his price is low but risk another zero in round 8, or pick up another slightly fallen premium in McVeigh? Thanks.

@HJ_Mitch

Jon, whatever way you look at a mirror, it will never change it's view of you. Danger is an elite player and will challenge Gary Ablett this year. Danger could do anything. You have to have him. End of story.

Ocker

Depends on team structure and League or overall win.
Current form cannot replace Class. (That is why you pick premiums)

Cheers.

SCaddict

That's exactly why everyone had to start with Danger and Gaz even if we thought in the preseason they may have been overpriced. Both guys are capable of monster scores that you just don't want to miss out on.

Trying to bring these guys in pre bye is a very tricky affair due to their price and their early Rd8 bye, especially when we are dealing with all these other issues such as injured players, must have rookies, under performing premos, bye dilemmas etc.

I made a similar call not starting with Pendles and as well as he's scored in the first 5 rounds I remain committed to bringing him AFTER the bye.

So I wouldn't mess up your structure since the byes are only a fortnight away now and therefore think McVeigh would probably be the smarter pick at this time. But yes it will be painful if Danger does go 180 plus in Rd 6 or 7.

Ocker

Well said SCaddict.

skate or die

tom mitchell is no where to be found. where's tom mitchell? trade or save?

Gold Rush

I traded him, with Mummy on the bench had to make the move unfortunately as I wanted to get Cutler in – but it should work out OK. Here's the deal – I got R Gray to replace Titch, Gray is forecast to appreciate 31K, Cutler is forecast for a 39K increase. Down 8K – But Langdon whom I will replace with Cutler next week is foretasted to increase 10K. Grey will be a keeper and hopefully Cutler can add another 100K on top of this weeks increase before I exterminate him.

throttlefinger

These Thursday podcasts are outstanding! Sunday podcast is the grand, big meal that gives you much to chew on and days to properly digest. Thursday is the after meal digestif. A community-driven Sambuca. Gives the things you've been chewing on a final appreciation to make those next moves go down smoothly.

Well done, Jock. Well done community.

Ocker

Well said Throttle.
But I will stick to a stubbie of Carlton Dry. (There is another sponsor Jock)

throttlefinger

I prefer Evan Williams on rocks, Ocker. Bud Tall Boys when I want to take things slower.

Bellybuttonfluff

Josh Kelly trade? Hammy tightness? Is now like ambrose in thinking he'll be back anytime but never will?

SCaddict

No Josh Kelly is definitely a walk up starter for the Giants so shouldn't be a priority trade out in my estimation, if you have cover. He probably has at least another $50K to make. Doesn't sound like his hammy issue is that serious either.

However Ambrose's JS is much more doubtful now that Bellchambers and Ryder are back in the fold. I'll be swapping him for Lloyd tomorrow.

Jimihk

Even if Ambrose does get back into the side, I wouldn't expect his spot to be safe unless Essendon have an injury crisis.

thhhh

Why is no one addressing Darcy Gardiner….. but with Gardiner named, does this help Cutler? (avoid the vest? maybe push up in to mids a bit further?) Or does it hinder? More likely to get the vest/sub etc.

Ocker

Gardiner is on my radar and waiting to see if he actually plays because I can't get Cutler into my team this week due to other forced trades to field 22 players.
Gardiner is Not forgotten but not on bubble.

Cheers.

Peter

I'm stuck in a bit of a mumford situation
I could just keep currie and take a 0 this week and hope that mummy is back next week, i do have a league bye, or I could trade in nic nat for currie and have good quality bench cover for the rest of the year including the byes and when sandi either goes down or gets rested during sc finals
Thoughts would be appreciated

throttlefinger

Hey Peter. In same situation. Considered NicNat. But go check out Mummy's points. He's been out for what, 2 rounds and is not far behind the others in total points.

Here's a brash point…there really aren't any premium rucks. Jacobs is doing better than last year. And is steady. But he's not putting out prem out like Minson and Goldie were last year. Who has? Mummy. Yes, he's injury prone but when he comes back, I'd be very surprised as a solo ruck he goes lower than 90 only 1-2 the rest of the season.

I'm eating donuts this week so I can get fat scores later. Blows but taking Higgo's advice and thinking long term. And be nice to have the leading ruck as a POD, too.

SCaddict

Ha ha yes I liked your 'donut @ the Mummy Diner' tweet. I guess if we can't laugh then we have to cry.

Hopefully the big lug is back with a vengeance next weekend and can repay your long suffering faith!

throttlefinger

Thanks SCaddict. Even if he does good but not great, I'll be happy with sticking with him.

As Wattsie said, it's a game so it should be enjoyed. Trying to keep that in mind when players pull an Ellis and get a 2.

Peter

Nah im keeping mummy either way im just considering bringing in nic nat for currie so i have 3 premo ish rucks in sandi mummy and nic nat for the rest of the year. If I do it I'll be able to play a loophole for the rest of the year as well as having quality bench cover for when ross lyon strikes at the end of the year.
Thanks for the input though ๐Ÿ™‚

throttlefinger

Funny I was considering doing the same. Not this round but after I get Caddy and cull some of my R8s. In fact I may bring him in R8 for Currie.

Dools

I have done something a wee bit different…..I moved Caddy to midfield pine and moved Langdon to the same bench…Hmmmm Now I can mov 5 Def players to mids and 4 Fwds to the mids….Unfortunately I have no other mids to move to either line …..Bu that's another Trade for next week……..

Brandon2416

Who should I trade out for roberstson: Aish, Taylor or dale Thomas

SCaddict

You may as well maximise your cash (and therefore your options in subsequent weeks) by offloading Daisy.

He also has the significantly higher BE of the three plus a Rd9 bye compared to Rd10 for the other two.

Anonymous

Higgins-lloyd
Ellis-robertson

Midfield has 5 premiums. Higgins is my fwd no4?

Anonymous

Leaves me with 500k

SCaddict

I'd probably keep Higgo (and will be doing so myself) but the other trade looks great. He could prove very useful for swapping with Roughie or Wingard in a couple of weeks.

Is there any other way you can get Lloyd in? Who are your F5 to F8?

jkh

Which of these two should be a priority to trade out? Matt Thomas, James Aish, Jackson Merrett and Tom Langdon! cheers

Jimihk

IMO Matt Thomas would be the priority since he's injured and has the rd 8 bye, but on the upside he still has a pretty low BE.

From the others it'd be between Jackson Merrett who due to lose cash or Langdon who has just about plateaued and also has the rd 8 bye.

Aish is still going up a little in price and but more importantly has a rd 10 bye, so I plan to hold him until then.

Ocker

Matt Thomas not playing this week and has round 8 bye, Langdon is also round 8 bye and about cooked in my opinion but has to stay another week due to more pressing concerns with my team.
Depends a bit on your considered trade ins and bye structure.

Cheers.

Captain joc

Anyone think that gold steins point scoring will go up now that currie is out?

Ocker

Currie is out but Majac Daw is in. ?.

Captain joc

Yeah I know that but can’t majak play as a fwd as well tho

Ocker

Probably better all round especially marking capabilities, But no job security at the moment either.
Not a fan but Majac kicked 6 on debut remember?

Cheers

Captain joc

Need some help from the community I’m doubling down this week
Option 1. Trade Ellis to Robertson and then Tyson to cutler via Langdons dpp (if Langdon isn’t the sub)
Option 2. Trade Ellis to Robertson and Langdon to cutler (if Langdon is sub)
Option 3. Trade Ellis to Robertson and Tyson to Lloyd via Taylor’s dpp
A couple of key notes tho I have tom Mitchell so I’m gonna have to take a JKH or Taylor/Lloyd score will loophole them
Should I trade Tyson or Dunstan
I’m keeping Matt Thomas for loop holing in Mids/ I think he hads more money to make

Bruds

Tyson won't get a 99 which is his break even but i can see Dunstan getting close to his 88 against Brisbane and then he should go up in value again before his bye
I'd pick option 3 because Lloyd is going up in value the most this week most likely and has decent job security whereas Cutler doesn't

Adam

Okay community, in a bit of strife in what trades to do, I don't usually post my team but what the hell

DEF:Swallow,Bartel,Birchall,McDonald,Langdon,Laidler(Cameron,Georgio)
MID:Ablett,Pendles,Beams,Dal Santo, Fyfe, Tyson, Polec, Dunstan(Goddard,Kelly)
RUC:Sandi,Lobbe(Currie,Nankervis)
FOR:Danger,Zorko,Martin,Merrett,Taylor,Lloyd(Impey,Ambrose)
I have a few options
1:Tyson – Robertson,Kelly – Fasolo (267k)
2:Langdon – Cutler, Tyson – Robertson (442k)
3:Tyson – Robertson, Kelly – Griffen (34k)
4:Tyson – Robertson, Kelly – Pavlich(88k)
5:Tyson – Robertson, Langdon – Jaench (51k)
Leaning towards option 1 or 4, unsure on curlers chance of the sub vest
Kicking myself HARD for trading all of honey church, cutler and Hanley in the first couple of rounds…..

Cheers!

Sputnik

Easy. Tyson – Crouch, and Kelly – Fasolo ( put Taylor in mids ). Then youre fwd line is set for a month or so and your mids will be OK for a little bit. Then in a couple weeks depending on Goddards injury you could trade him to Honeychurch (depending on how he goes) and get Mcveigh/Mithcell/Hanley in your backline for Langdon

Beady Eye

Leaning towards option 5, as Kelly still has cash to be milked, while Langdon is about due for the cull.

Simon

Hi jock and Supercoaches.

A few dilemmas this week. Do I keep Mummy and Currie and cope a donut in the ruck this week? My other options are to trade Cameron (GC) to Cutler as have no bench coverage in defence or Jackson Merrett to Fasolo only to make some cash and improve scoring. Any thoughts/advice much appreciated.

Rescued Pieman

Tricky one Simon. I dont expect to see Currie playing anytime soon. I think he was exposed last week. I think cash generaton should be a priority this week. Fasolo from Merrett is sideways, what about Lloyd. And maybe Mummy to someone cheaper. He's had knee surgery & will have lost conditioning.

ray hill

Griffen or swan

scooter

Cutler or gardner

Rescued Pieman

Good point. Cutler could be sub today. He's named on the pine. Gardener is named on the ground. It's awkward today because Langdon plays first. He coud be sub as well. I'm getting Nick Robertson & waiting next week on these 2.

scooter

Cutler on the bubble was sub first round and could be sub again gardener not sub first game and on field today thinking I mite pick up Lloyd and Roberton and hold Langdon to next week for gardener will give me 600 k comin into byes without weakening my structure

Beady Eye

Worth considering also the roles both rookies play: Cutler is a utility/third tall, Gardiner is a fullback.

Can't see Leppa making a fullback his starting sub; the risk is that he starts onfield and cops the vest later. Greater chance of this with Merrett back also.

Sub is between Cutler and Taylor I reckon.

Rescued Pieman

If you have a look at Collingwood's bench today Fasolo, Ball, Witts, Langdon. Langdon could very well be the sub & lose cash this week. The obvious trade is Cutler, but he could be the sub as well. If Langdon is sub I think he has to be traded. But make sure you have cover in case Cutler is as well.

Beady Eye

Good call. Might hold off on that second trade to see if it's Langdon that needs the chop.

Rescued Pieman

Here here Jock. Iv'e been looking forward to this day for quite some time. Not just to see my beloved Pies play but to spend the day with my 5 year old boy & for him to see & me too explain the significance of the day. Lest we forget.

Wattsieesq

Great sentiments Jock. The last post at the end of the podcast was very moving. Lest We Forget.

Gilly

Absolutely Jock. A magnificent contribution from the boys. Truly grateful for their efforts.

Stewart

Can anyone tell me what's going on with Tom Mitchell ? Doesn't seem to be injured yet omitted for the squad?

Dan

Any word on the Matt Thomas injury? Severity? How long could he possibly be out for?

sam

is fasolo still worth getting?

SCaddict

Sort of. You've missed a big chunk of his cash generation already but if you need his onfield points to replace say a Titch then it's worth considering. Personally I wouldn't bother switching him for say Higgins though as he still has a bit more cash to make.

But I still think bringing in players like Lloyd, Flipper and Cutler are the priorities this week and likely to earn you the larger cash hauls at this point in time as unfortunately we can't travel back into the past.

Jn101

i have 25 trades and 350k.

should i be using two trades and going mcdonough to llyod or even langdon to cutler, and for the second trade upgrade either tyson or dunstan to one of pendlebury, selwood, watson or griffin.

the problem I'm having is that the premiums i want to upgrade to have really high BE and i feel like i could be waiting another week.

please help!

With those targets in mind, I'd be looking at a double downgrade this week.

Like the Lloyd trade, but would see if you can swing Langdon into your mids and grab Flipper Robertson instead of Cutler – better JS.

Based on that info I'd go McDonut to Lloyd and Tyson to Flipper and then do a double upgrade the following week when the likes of Jelwood, Jobe, Pendles, Roughnuts, Wingard, Hanley et al are cheaper.

Griffen shouldn't change too much in price either if you wait another week and instead set up your cash cows this round.

Hey community need your help!
I've got sdt suspended this week and the non playing Clurey on the bench. I have to ply Georgiou and Langdon atm which isn't great. What should I do?

I'd suggest you make a trade.
