PODCAST: Round 12 Community Night podcast

Published by Jock on

Supercoach 2014

Very interesting long weekend of fantasy footy ahead community!

Langford’s out, Enright’s back, Lloyd looks like he’s on the outer at Tigerland, we’re weighing up whether to blow a few more trades or whether we should start to tuck a few away in the back pocket…

Essential time of the season this. Those with less than elite mental endurance start to get sloppy. Those with cold hard balls of steel and rock solid discipline excel.

Let’s get stuck in!

Big Ben

In like Flynn

scano

Libba should absolutely dominate with Big minson dominating in the ruck agains an inexperienced brisbane ruckmen! watch out for a crazy score

The Garbo

I've been switching between ablett/Pendles and Libba/Ablett all week. An hour ago i finally decided to stick with ablett/pendles.
But now that you've made me realise that martin is going up vs minson ive switched back to libba/ablett for nearly the 4th time this week

Tomjy

Pick Barlow up this week or wait for Johsnon

Hazey

Asking myself the same thing!!!

Big ring

Surely you’d wait for Johnson! I’m just gutted I bought him the round he scored a 50 or whatever tripe it was

D Man

Barlow or Fyfe?

Daniel

Fyfe

The Garbo

Fyfe is also due to go down in price this week and most likely next as well. should be able to get him just under 550k.

Dom

How many trades should we have?

MightyDonsFC

Depends on where your teams at.

Azmataz

I reckon if you are 2 – 3 players away from full premo and have 12 – 13 trades left that is about par.

Turls

16 trades left but still a while away from as close to an all premium team as possible.

Defense still has Langdon, McDonald, (Langford)
Mids still has Tyson, Polec, Dunstan (Hartung)
Fwds has Shenton (Steven May)

Ie.. still running rookies at D5, D6, M6, M7, M8 and F6

$168k in the bank. Thinking:
Cashing out on Polec given his BE -> Hanley (via McDonald or Langdon)
May -> Tex Walker

Bit lost, Any suggestions?

Rocksta

Yea, start trading!
6 On field Rookies is simply too much for this Stage of the season.
Polec must go this week……………..Turn into Goddard or Swanny or Barlow or Sloane ( or Seve J, even though he will be much cheaper next week).
Perhaps downgrade Dunstan to Zach O'Brien, and then turn Polec into Barlow.
This should still leave you with enough cash to turn Tyson into Steve J next week after his significant price drop this week.

Pompous Git

+1

Azmataz

Trade ass off Turls! I would trade Tyson straight up to Rocky. Bring in O'Brien next week and trade Langdon for either Malceski, Swallow, Simpson, McVeigh, Hibberd etc (whoever you don't have).

Keep Shenton for awhile up forward.

Hazey

Yr not on yr own being lost old mate!

I think I’m just going to back in Polec, hold Wingard n wait a week or two for a bit more fattening, premo falls n fresh meat to present?!?!

Cratzy

Polec has just signed up for Jenny Craig and Wingard is half way through the biggest loser. Both need to go ASAP.

The Garbo

Glad to know if Polec's ship sinks – im not the only fool aboard.
As I'm also going against general concensus by holding him as my M8.

Joey Joe Joe

Can't make up my mind…

Lloyd out for Walker and have $200k in the kitty (but have to potentially trade up again later on). OR Lloyd out for R. Gray, no kitty, but finalise the forward line and (bar injury) no additional trade required.

12 trades left – would love some guidance!

Rocksta

B.
Robby Gray is effectively a midfielder and will definitely maintain a 100+ average for the rest of the season.

Crowmagnon

Get Robbie! Ps I'm a crows fan.

Azmataz

Definitely Robbie JJJ!

Tim

Hey Jock, thoughts on bringing in a non-playing rookie to use as a loophole for the rest of the year? I've got a premo fwd line with Tex coming in this week.

Bruce

I would bring in M Honeychuch from bulldogs as they have most late round games. He also has mid/fwd swing that could be useful. I am using both J Hunt from melbourne mid/def swing and Honeychurch. You could also use Thurlow with his fwd/ruck swing if you are going to suck the cash out of R3 later on.

Cratzy

That's an oxymoron. Having Tex in your forward line stops it being premo. He's a KPF with one big score and two shockers. Wasting trades.

Mike

Best Option?

Option 1. W.Langford > J.Bartel & A.Polec > T.Walker (DPP Swing)
Option 2 A.Georgiou > G.Birchall & A.Polec > T.Walker (DPP Swing)
Option 3 A.Georgiou > S.Hurn & A.Polec > T.Walker (DPP Swing)
Option 4 – A.Georgiou > J.Bartel & A.Polec > C.Shenton

@jimbeard18

Option 4 for mine Jimmy is ultra reliable and Shenton will make you a lot of cash

Cratzy

Option 4.

Azmataz

Yeah 4 for me too but not a big fan of any of them to be honest. How much cashdo you have? Can you do better than Walker?

Gab

first of all J. Polec
And secondly option 4 for me

Gab

option 1 sorry

Matt

Guys would love some thoughts on Polec. Hold or trade? I’m leaning more towards trading him to a Barlow. Thoughts? Cheers

Mozz

Trade him out for sure

Cratzy

Leaning? You should be falling over with getting rid of him. The ship has sailed on his top price. Boot him.

Matt

The “leaning” section was more towards getting Barlow, but thanks for the confirmation lads.

Azmataz

TRADE! Barlow is a gun. Thinking of bringing him in too

Hazey

I’m thinking of backing him to get close to his break even then it’s a one trade move to Johnson or a 2 trade move to a super premium elite kick ass mid….namely JKH…

Cratzy

You mean JPK right. JKH is from Melbourne and is a fwd.

Hazey

Hehe….midnight posting gets ya every time!

Azmataz

JKH haha good luck with that

D Man

Iv got 2 Mids premos to go and Stevie J is one of them.
I need to bring in the other this week for Polec.
Bring in Fyfe or Barlow. (I can afford either)

Schnook

Fyfe has the higher ceiling.

Azmataz

Barlow

Matt

What do people think of BIG BOY Mcevoy? Missed two weeks with a corked hamstring, which means I'm gonna get another zero this week unless I trade him. And regardless of zeros, I dont think I want the type of bloke who misses two and a half games from a corked hammy in my side. Straight swap to Mumford? Cheers

@jimbeard18

Consider Nic Nat, we know he can produce premium output and at only 388k odd with a BE of 40 make 74K to spend elsewhere and avoid Mcevoy's 142 breakeven!

julz

I'm in the same boat Matt. Sick of the 'Big Boy', keeps missing games over what should only be poxy niggly injuries, I'm thinking of punting him although I have Dericx at least as back-up.
With only 12 trades left not sure if I want to use a trade to get rid of him though. And if so not sure if I can trust a NicNat/Sandi ruck combo when NicNat burnt me last year. Thinking of going to Minson, not sure if I trust Mumford either (been burnt by him too in the past!)
Interested in others thoughts too.

BlueBallsFC

i'm in the same boat. going to play derrickx for now!!!!!

@jimbeard18

I'm really keen to bring in Treloar this week, low BE and huge POD in only 2.92% of teams. And I think he will avg 105-115 for the rest of the season !

Need the communities opinion on whether to cull Tyson (attainable BE this week) or Cotchin?

Is Cotchin still a premium even though he's dishing out trash week in week out?

Cratzy

Cotch is gone from premium ranks. Punt him.

WombatsFC

Cotchin is a serious leak in midfield that must be fixed but so is Tyson. I'd consider turning one or both of them into a def or fwd (90 ave on these lines is ok) and swinging Danger, bartell, gray, or mcveigh into the middle to plug the leaks.

Pompous Git

Great strategy Wombats old boy! Might have to run with it myself!

IMO Cotchin is bigger headache than Tyson, at least the Demon is scoring the odd ton and cost bugger all to begin with and this year it’s the Tigers looking to be the biggest problem child.

They are both almost a straight swap to Parker or Bird, but Gray is well worth paying a few extra shekels for.

Jimbo

I've had Treloar from the start. Grab him. He is a very consistent prolific scorer. I'd hold onto Tyson. Do the same with Cotchin for now.

LukTon

I think at this point in the season (and assuming a lack of abundance of wasteful trades) you'd be best off to back Cotchin in for the rest of the season. Why?

Think where trades can be BETTER spent elsewhere. Bar a few very low scores, Tyson's scoring has been very good round by round. What is the guarantee this will continue? Cotchin has shown in the past that his current scoring is basically close to recent career worst form. What is the guarantee that this will change?

I'd say that both of these players should be of little concern for trading, especially if you have other areas of your team that you could address to gain some significant scoring from, such as maybe a rookie F6 or D6 (or even 5 if you're running with two rookies in these positions).

Honestly, out of the two of Cotchin and Tyson, I'd be dumping Cotchin. It seems that Cotchin has been identified as a player of most importance to contain, and is attracting the best tag week in and week out. Tyson on the other hand seems to be a player of a lesser elk, and is attracting far less attention because of it, allowing him to have a greater overall impact on a game of football (and hense the great scoring).

TL:DR – Cotchin is a much better player, yet Tyson is having a greater impact the outcome of a match. Touch call who to trade out!

(As a final note, I can see Cotchin in your final midfield, but not Tyson…dunno why and probably just my opinion)

Azmataz

Both are around the same price. Definitely trade Tyson over Cotchin! Cotchin is a premium and will come good. I am considering trading him in when he has bottomed out. Tyson is a rookie and has made you cash. Time to go.

Mozz

With 12 trades left i'm really trying to conserve my trades, but i'm being lured into Tex Walker after reading tight arse tuesday.

Is it worth going Taylor –> Walker. Will leave me with 50k and 11 trades left for the season.
IS TEX SOMEONE TO HAVE FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON!?
someone please help

Cratzy

No, Tex is fools gold. Scores of 55, 55 and 150 lures you in. If he went 150, 55, 55 would you still want him? Didn't think so.

Jimbo

I considered him too but there are plenty of better options ahead of Taylor Walker. If you don't have him already, grab Robbie Gray or Brent Harvey.

LukTon

Hey Mozz,

I'd say its a little too early to tell, but based on previous years, he could be.

I say when picking ANY forward in Supercoach, imagine if they kick two goals in a game. WHERE ELSE are they going to get their scoring from?

Will they kick 5 goals every weel? If not, are they the type of player to rack up possessions, or tackle a whole team by themself? Are they going to take 5-10 marks a game? If they don't, are they good at getting the contested ball, or intercepting opposing kicks and handballs?

I honestly don't know enough about Tex to answer these questions, but maybe ask yourself if you think that Tex can provide consistent scoring when he doesn't do what forwards are supposed to do? (which is quite often taking into account key pos forwards this year)

Azmataz

Beautiful insight there LukTon son. Couldn't of said it better myself. Just because he is cheap doesn't mean you should trade him in..

Bruce

Trade asap. lock in the cash gained for a premium and move on.

Tommy

Is there any defensive rookies?

Daniel

Maybe Litherland

Pompous Git

I dont think either of those have decent JS.

As soon as Lake is back at Hawthorn (not sure when), Litherland will go, and Christensen is back for the Cats in the VFL this week, and will walk straight into Bews spot if he gets through.

Turls

Steven May. Don't know why I've got him. Want to bank some coin to afford a Dunstan -> Steve Johnson upgrade next week.

1) Downgrade May to a FWD cheapie (and who?)
2) Straight swap him for Tex and find the cash for Johnson next week using one up one down strategy?

15 trades

julz

It depends how much cash you need. With option one there are no real FWD rookies on the bubble but C Cameron from Adelaide is still only about $160K, or you've got Lennon at Richmond around $200K and Shenton at a bit over that.

Option 2 you could do a straight swap, bearing in mind that you will have young O'Brien from Brisbane on the bubble in the midfield next week. Like some people on here though, I am not sold that Tex will be a premo

Azmataz

Mate I had May for awhile too. Don't know why…was a bad idea. Traded him out a few weeks back.

If I was you, I would bring in a FWD premium and downgrade a mid rookie to O'Brien, ideally next week as May won't drop in price much as his BE is only 60.

15 trades is alot mate how many players are you away from full premo?

Bruce

Dan,
Sorry love to help RE: Inca Trail(Trial!), but I'll be playing finals!

Captain joc

My dilemma

2 upgrades needed in the next month

Trade Langdon to Goddard leaving just a fwd spot to upgrade with shenton warming for the next couple of weeks or hold trades I’m going for highest overall rank possible as I’m 610th

scano

Well done Captain! Looks good

WombatsFC

Keep langdon as dual line bench cover.

scano

Do people think jaensch and hurn can become in the top denders by the year? are we picking up a bargain or should we wait for others?

Itchy Nuts Pieman

Been torched by Hurn in the past. Gets injured a lot. Jaench looks like a solid pick. I’ll be grabbing him this week & trading out Langford.

Pompous Git

I’m not totally sold on either. If you still plenty of trades, then go either one of them as it might pay off. If cash is tight, go Carlisle as Bomber seems to have finally accepted that he’s not a forward and has named him at full back again. He is a $139k discount on his round 1 price.

If money is not an issue for you, then take Bartel, Simpson, Malceski, Johnson in that order.

WombatsFC

Jaensch had a couple of real stinkers in addition to his injured score and Hurn rhymes with burn. If you already have simpson,bartell,mcveigh,swallow and another def averaging 100+ with proven consistency then, either of Jaensch or hurn would be a viable speculative pick for D6. But you need to consider what it may cost you if they don't go on to average like a Hibberd or Johnston

Jimmy

Is pendles a lock? or should I be looking at getting Stevie J instead of him and use the extra money to get a parker instead of tex

Itchy Nuts Pieman

Stevie j is going to be nicely priced. But he has Crowley in week 1 of SC finals. Crowley towelled him a few weeks ago. Crowley is the reason he’s cheap. Buyer beware

WombatsFC

Pendle is THE lock at M2

Derek

I'm happy to see Rohan on Swans extended bench this week. I doubt he will be named to play, but he must be in consideration. He is still a great FWD downgrade option if/when named

BCHawks

I personally don't think that he is when he plays his scores have been terrible.

Pompous Git

Agreed, and too expensive.

I see Collingwood have named Broomhead on an extended bench at $123900, he is at least an option. The Pies should be very keen to get a look at him as he was drafted at 20 in 2012 and they will have to decide wether to re-contract him at the end of the year.

One to keep an eye on anyway.

Porcelain

I also am holding Lloyd and waiting for the next increase or 2.
Unless you will have a doghnut or Lloyd's cash is desperately needed, better to trade out other cows that have little fat left or are losing money

Porcelain

oops, should have been on the post below, about Lloyd

sharker4

I have been banking on Lloyd coming back into the side and considering he's not I think I need to move him on despite his negative breakeven. My forward line is lacking and I need to start to fix it up. I have 12 trades left with 147k to play with. Here is my side

Swallow, Bartel,Burgoyne, Hooker, Suckling, Enright (Langdon, Langford)
Ablett, Beams, Selwood, Liberatore, Jones, Tyson, Swan, Goddard (Hartung, Acres)
Sandilands, Jacobs (Derickx, Currie)
Dangerfield, Martin, Zorko, Dalhaus, Shenton, Ambrose (Lloyd, Cameron)

Thoughts?

Jottie

maybe hold mate, let the cows fatten πŸ™‚ although I have already traded Lloyd your not making a heap of cash.

sharker4

Maybe you're right, im just worried having 4 rookes in the forward line. Which is my own fault for not planning accordingly. Maybe I will just downgrade Langdon for a bit of cash to upgrade one of these forward rookies in the future. Issue is I've got a hard league match coming up and I really need to win it if Im going to playing finals.

Jottie

I think if you rush those rookies you won't be getting the best result in the long run, maybe do a dbl downgrade (langdon, langford) for (bews, Obrien) or you have enough cash to go lloyd > Tex Walker and downgrade langford > bews? upgrade ambrose in a couple of weeks?

Kerrigan

Backs: mcveigh, swallow, Thompson, walker, suckling, Langford, cutler & georgiou

Mids: ablett, pendles, Goddard, beams, selwood, Libba, Mundy, Shelton, crouch & acres

Rucks: sandi, Ryder, derickx & thurlow

Fwds: danger, Martin, dalhaus, gunston, Higgins, fasolo, ambrose & Cameron.

15 trades $350 in the bank. Where should i target my upgrades community?

Thinking cutler to bartel but leaves me with only $30k left over.

Fasolo – tex walker?

Pompous Git

Just Cutler to Bartel. Next week you go Crouch to Obrien and do a forward upgrade of Faz or Amber with that cash.

Nik

Thoughts on a Langdon to docherty downgrade? Has shown some real form in his first three games?

Pompous Git

Depends on the rest of your squad old boy, he is scoring well and doing a bit of a Jaensch on us. Also consider going further down to Carlisle saves you another $70k to spend elsewhere. If that helps you to gain an ultra mid premium like JPK/Pendles etc then worth considering.

Nik

Thanks mate, hadn’t even thought of carlisle

WombatsFC

Based on his 3 games so far Docherty is a solid option for D6. He spends time in the middle, gets a lot of the ball, bounces it, kicks long and accurately, and also scores goals. Nobody else at Carlton seems able to kick goals regularly so his position is secure.
However Langdon has dual line eligibility which will become invaluable as you run short on trades and injuries mount up.

Mathew

Look out mumford owners
Lobb has been names in this weeks GWS side
This could mean that mummy plays forward this week

Ole Biscuit Barrel

Hoping that Lobb could become a good Derikx downgrade in 2 weeks, great story.

The Garbo

My thinking is Lobb is only getting a game atm because of camerons suspension. But will definately be keeping an eye on him

Pompous Git

Should I play Wingard or Shenton on the field? Very tempted to put Shenton there, and stick the E on Chad.

Good or bad idea people?

Jottie

if your going to do that , then get rid of wingard , you have to back your premiums …

The Mullet

With Wingard getting concussed last week, I think there has to be some risk that he will be a late withdrawal anyway.

Pompous Git

That is my concern Mullet. Happy to keep him, just concerned that his output will be low this week after the big knock he took. TBH I am surprised he is even playing after being out cold last week.

WombatsFC

Loophole him.

Shook

Will not work as both are playing each other.

@TVardon

My back line is stuffed. McVeigh, Swallow, Burgoyne, Enright, Langdon, Bews, [Georgiou, Clurey(!)]
I've got $229,000 in the bank. Georgiou has to go. So I've got $414,500. 15 trades left.

Do I take Dempster, Docherty or Broadbent?

Or should I go Sam Lloyd to McGovern from West Coast to generate enough cash to get Malceski, Michael Johnson, Hibberd or Pearceoff Hanley?

WombatsFC

Malceski

@TVardon

you beaut. Ta

Jarrod05

Ablett, Libba or Watson for captain this week?

WombatsFC

Blues are crap at shutting down midfielders (rocky 180+ lw) put the VC on Joel and on Sat morning if you think his 160+ isn't good enough put the C on libba

Simon T

I have 15 trades left and two highly winnable games in my leagues without needing to trade. However, I am still an outside chance to make finals. I have the following players who are either not getting a game and/or about to drop/peaked in value – Cutler, Langford, Polec, Dunstan, Currie, Lloyd.

Two questions
1) Should I make any trades?
2) Who out of that list should I trade this week.

Any thoughts/comments greatly appreciated.

Ole Biscuit Barrel

Polec to Obrien Langford to Bartel?

Simon T

Thanks Ole Biscuit Barrel. I was thinking of keeping Polec as they playing the Saints and might score big and already have Bartel (ironically in the midfield). If I was going to trade anyone in the midfield it would be Dunstan and hopefully for a MID/FWD to take advantage of DPP but I don't have the cash to do it to get Gray or Harvey.

I could improve my cash flow by trading Langford to Litherland but not sure about his job security or was thinking of trading Langford for Docherty but does not leave me with much cash.

bigjanks

I've been screwed all year at ruck. Started with Mummy/Sandi and had Currie and King as backups. Perfect ruck combo to begin the year with Currie making some money early on and king was my loophole.

Mummy gets injured and I get stuck with him for 3 weeks before deciding to pull the trigger on Big Boy. Now he is injured and Currie doesn't get a game anymore. I think I've had 5 or 6 weeks where I've fielded only 1 ruckman.

Since Big Boy is still out again this week, I have a couple options…(plenty of money and trades left)

1)Trade Currie for Nic Nat (cheap as chips and still has potential to be a 100pt/game guy) keep King as loophole
2)Trade Big Boy back to Mummy (risk more injuries) or another premium.
3)Trade Currie for Lobb or Lowden and stay with Big Boy as my ruck #2

After typing this out I think my best bet is to roll the dice with Nic Nat and I can always play the first Ruckman for the weekend as my Emergency and if they score well I throw King in as a starter over the other ruck I think will score less.

Unless someone knows whether Lobb or Lowden will be selected for the remainder year meaning that I can just roll the dice on 40-50 pt games if Sandi or Big Boy were to miss games.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

What would you guys choose to do?

Derek

McElroy will be back next week. Option 1 looks GOLD!

sdl

How long is Big Boy looking to be out for? If ya got plenty of cash Nic Nat at that price is definitely a viable Ruck backup option, considering it myself.

WombatsFC

I'd go Mac to Minson. Once a ruck breaks he is broken for the whole season you need a safe solid ruck option not speculation.

Jarrod05

I’d definitely look at getting Polec out!! He has a high break even.

Maybe Lloyd if you need some cash?

Matt

Things arent looking good to Polec, u could always upgrade to the still cheap ryan griffen

Steve

Morning all,

Looking for some advice with regards to my team. I have $211,000 and 15 trades.

B : Bartel, McVeigh, Hibberd, Swallow, Langdon, McDonald (Webster, Georgiou)
M : Ablett, Pendles, Beams, Selwood, Gray, Cotchin, Zorko, Shenton,(Robertson, Hartung)
R : Sandilands, Lobbe (Currie, King)
F : Dangerfield, Martin, Bruest, Dahlhaus, Roughead, Ambrose (Lloyd, Cameron)

I'm looking at a trade of Robertson to O'Brien and then Lloyd to Parker but it just doesn't seem right. Any others you can advise on?

Cheers.

Derek

your team looks unbalanced with Zorko & gray in the guts.

I would trade Lloyd to Hanley (swapping Zorko into FWD), swing Hanley to the DEF via McDonald.

WombatsFC

I'd go Roughy to Rocky put Zork fwd. Cotchin to JPK

Steve

Thanks guys for the advice – cash unfortunately wouldn't allow me to bring in both Rocky and JPK. I settled on Parker and Libba. I've moved Zorko forward and Parker is in the Mid for the moment but Iguess down the track he'll go forward when Ambrose etc is upgraded.

Thanks again for the advice.

Jarrod05

Steve, Upgrade Zorko to a premium.

wat

why would you upgrade zorko? Had a gastro affected score of 16 and still averaging 91? I’d keep him and if you didn’t have him maybe even look to bring him in

Mike

gray or buddy ?????
Factors – Buddy has an amazing run home, Buddy can kick a big bag, Buddy can get 50's

BCHawks

my podcast question wasn't answered. Oh well. If anyone could answer this question it would be greatly appreciated. Who is the best defender under 130k. thanks.

Derek

I don't think there is anyone. Bews at $148k is the cheapist Defender playing. If you were looking into the future I would suggest that Fuller should one day get a game

Schnook

J Hunt from Melb at $117k prob won't play but has def/mid swing to enable emergency loophole on either line if have swingset in mids.

northerner

Litherland ($165k) if you need cash generation as he will appreciate,Clay Cameron ($168k) if you want job security

Kingmen

hi guys,

need some help trying to figure out trades this week with only $98000 in the bank.

Def: Swallow, Simpson, Bartel, Malceski, Hooker, Enright, (Langdon, Langford)

MIds: Ablett, Pendlebury, Beams, Selwood, Watson, M Murphy,Barlow, Hallahan (Billings, Acres)

Rucks: Sandi and Mumford (Derickx, Thrulow)

Fwds: Danger, Parker, Matin, T Lynch, Fasolo, Shenton (Ambrose, Cameron)

first option was trade out Billings and Lynch swap Langdon n the middle then bring in litherland and r gray

second option was trade out Billings and Lynch swap shenton in the middle and bring in tex and zorko.

any help or other suggestions would be great!

Branks

first option is better

BCHawks

Hi, I would trade out Langford for a defensive rookie and then I would sub Billings into your forward and put Shenton into your midfield and play him on field instead of Hallahan and then I would trade out Billings for Premium forward of your choice, then next round I would trade out Acres and swing Langdon to you midfield and then trade him out for a premium.

Josh.F

Who should I trade in Jaensch or Hurn?

The Garbo

Jaensch

Phil

In a bit of a pickle guys was wondering what i should do
Def: Swallow, Simpson, Bartel, Mcveigh, Langdon, Docherty (Gergiou, Tippet)

Mid: Ablett, Pendlebury, Beams, Selwood, Rockliff, Fyfe, Dangerfield. Treloar (Hartung, Acres)

Rk: Sandilands, Hampson (Currie, King)

Fwd: Parker, Martin, Pavlich, Zorko, Higgins, Lloyd (Ambrose, Cameron)

46k in the bank.

I'm not sure if i should trade or just hold because my rookies haven't got really enough cash to kill so i was thinking either holding and wait for more cash to free up or possible trade Lloyd to a donut of Honeychurch who has a MID/FWD and then upgrade Langdon to Malceski .
Another option is just downgrading Lloyd to Honey, giving me 150k in the bank and then having a look at O'brien from Brisbane and if he does well, Trade Hartung for O'brien giving me roughly 230k if Hartung reaches the 200 thousand price.
Thoughts would be much appreciated πŸ™‚

Wattsieesq

Your defence looks solid. I've got Langdon and although he'll probably lose money this week, he's been punching out 90s and 100s since the bye. For that reason I'm holding him for another week.

Dave

G’day community,

Need a MID, FWD and DEF upgrade to complete my team. Getting Stevie J or Fyfe next week. Money restrictions leaves me with 2 options.

Jaensch and Gray or Bartel/McVeigh and Franklin. Which is the better combo?

Wattsieesq

Option 2 for me

spinnerau1

G'day community!!!

Tossing up between mcviegh, simpson or bartel into my defence……who does the community feel is going to be the better long term performer for the rest of the year?…..for me its a pinch between mcveigh and bartel with bartel I think just in front with geelong aiming to prove that that 110 drubbing was a bump in the road.

thought as always are greatly appreciated

Derek

they are all expensive. If you can afford them, great. I just can't justify spending that much money, if you wait you will get them cheaper or you can look at the fallen premiums now on offer.

Hanley is $170k cheaper than Simpson, Hodge is $130k cheaper, Mitchell (when he come back and has the 9 out of his average) will be $420k. H Shaw is $441k!!! plenty to chose from and leave you cash to spend in the guts where the points are made.

Wattsieesq

I've got Bartel and McVeigh and both are great. Both of their teams remaining games are equal in difficulty so flip a coin. McV and the swans are on the rise while the cats have stuttered. That may be a factor that splits them.

Hien

which premium def should i pick up simmo, mcveigh or someone else?

Matt

Bartel is always a safe option. But from the choices above Simpson although more expensive has a lower BE and better form to date than McVeigh

Mozz

Really need someone's advice please!
This is my fwd line:

Danger, Parker, Martin, Zorko, Taylor, Lloyd (Shenton, Ambrose)
12 trades left and $97k in the bank

WHAT SHOULD I DO!?
I really don't want to be fielding two of Taylor, Shenton and Ambrose although they are all cash cows and have not reached their full potential yet. I also have Langdon in DEF and Hallahan in MID which i'm also thinking could be traded off.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hallahan still has money to make, but if you need cash and want to upgrade a forward, perhaps trade Hallahan down to Obrien and upgrade Taylor with the $190k that you make of the first trade.

I think LLoyd has been given every chance to get back in the Richmond team, it looks unlikely. He does have a negative BE so if he does get a game there is cash to be made, but when????

Langdon still has some cash to be made (has a high BE this week because still has the 53 in his average but will be gone next week), and is playing well. If you can I would hold him for a few more weeks and maybe upgrade him to Sam Mitchell when he comes back.

But i'm thinking that Lloyd can be used as a FWD loophole option. Used that last week and was able to snap up Shenton's 100.
It's just that my FWD line is looking really bare and i don't know if i should bring in someone like tex for taylor?

Mitchell is not due back for another 4 weeks! Then 2 for his price to drop, shouldn’t we be getting to full premium well before then?

I think SMitch will be a handy trade option for injury cover, cant wait 6 weeks for him when Shaw is going ti be 410 next week!

I am playing for League wins. As long as I have Sammy before the finals i'm happy

Shenton is fairly acceptable as an F6 in the medium term, and it wouldnt be a total disaster having Ambrose on the field this week.

Not sure if Hallahan has maxed out, but him down to Obrien could free up the cash to upgrade Taylor or Lloyd into Buddy?

Mozz

I think i'm going to just hold all trades this week.
Hallahan hasn't maxed out just yet, his BE is 19 so easily another 30k+ there. Don't like Obrien just yet, would like to see another week out of him.

I'm also sitting ontop of my league and versing 4th, so it will be a close game, but i'm not expected to lose. Here's hoping that Ambrose, Shenton and Taylor do not get the vests!!!

sss

what do people think about Claye Beams as a possible downgrade option
On the bubble, good JS been a bit scratchy but will score enough to go up in price well
Not to keen on O'brien he want ton up again so what do people think

Jottie

for that price you may aswell get Shenton Has DPP

Qik question community. If I have a Geelong player who scores a donut tonight can I move the Captaincy off him later in the round to make use of the captains loophole ?

Jottie

no the only way is too say put the VC on Jelwood than the C on someone not playing in later games to double the VC score
