Patch’s Panic Room – Round 6

Published by Patch on

Deploying-a-patch-management-processCommunity. In the vein of last night’s podcast, I would like to request a quiet moment to in honour of James Kelly’s right testicle.

This is a triple premiership winning testicle. It has played 250 games. This testicle has been a fantastic servant of the game, and I would like to take this moment to let James know we are thinking of him.

I’d also like a moment to mourn my Supercoach side, and the thousands other out there like it. Many of these, like mine, are now formally pronounced deceased in the race for the 50k, and, as a consequence, a long shot at winning a flag in 2015. You are *sniffles* and always will be *tears well up* in our hearts. I think I’m getting emotional so we’ll cut to the news.

THE NEWS

Wait, this isn’t the news, this is just a list of my team?

Oh.

Right.

Rory Sloane – subbed out last week for just 69 points with a calf complaint. he didn’t train on Thursday. Has been named and has declared himself fit to play in the media, but still a chance to miss. Emergencies required.

Cam Ellis-Yolman – missing with a hamstring, possibly out for two. If you want to swoop on a tasty fallen premo, go for it. I will be holding. There are rumours circulating that he may miss for three, but there is little news as of the time of writing. On the plus side, Isaac Heeney is back but it’s him or Jake Lloyd to be the sub for Sydney and my teeth are gnashing.

Jordan Lewis – to give him credit, Todd Goldstien’s head is the same shape as a football. Unfortunately, footballs don’t tend to have hair and eyes and noses and such, which the tribunal expertly picked out. Two weeks’ holiday means Lewis will miss two. Hold if possible.

Luke Hodge (and Sam Mayes if you’ve got him) – missing three for slightly more serious offences, although Mayes’ case gets into particularities about the bump which I won’t go into here. Three weeks is just too long to hold. Swap ‘em over for as high a scoring premium as you can afford.

James Kelly – ruptured right testicle. Not a fate I’d wish upon anyone, ever. No training for three weeks, which means he will miss four games minimum, but possibly up to six. He’s got to go, which is unfortunate because he looked a good selection. As I mentioned in the Thursday Night Podcast, Jasper Pittard at $451k looks a very handy replacement.

Tom Rockliff – Owch. KO’d in the first few minutes of last week’s game with a score of 0. Has been named and should play, but watch closely. With a breakeven still near 300, he might plummet below 500k in no time and possibly reach 450 at the back end of the byes. Delicious.

Brett the “Aw, alright, I’ll give this football thing a shot” Deledio – He’s back. He’s a risk of the red vest. If you held him this long I admire your resolve.

Harley Bennell – football confuses me these days. You’re supposed to give up enjoyment, life outside football, relaxation, for ten to fifteen years of your prime? Regardless of the ethics, the Gold Coast Leadership group have shown some spine and suspended Bennell, alongside Trent Mckenzie and Brandon Matera for one match. Hold.

Mitch Clark – IN! YES. GOOD NEWS IN THE NEWS SECTION. FINALLY.

Nick Riewoldt and Leigh Montagna – Speaking of good news, big ins for the Saints this week. This should have a good impact on anyone with Paddy McCartin or Jack Newnes, as the pressure comes off them.

Brett Goodes – He’s back, but on the bench and with a BE of 90. Will leak cash. If you’re going to move him do it now.

Paul Seedsman – Dex’s tip was a cracker last week, until about three quarter time when Seedsman came off nursing his glute. Will miss this week, which will hurt Supercoachers in a similar area. Hold. Let’s hope his analysis of Travis Boak breaks that curse.

Ricky Henderson – the crow will miss this week’s game with a pectoral injury. Upside is we get our first look at Jake Lever, who has a lot of folk down at the Adelaide Oval very excited.

Richard Douglas – will miss 4-6. Not overly Supercoach relevant but needs to be mentioned.

Josh J Kennedy – the West Coast forward is weighing up whether to have surgery that would end his season, but possibly save his career. However, he’s going to deliberate while playing this week, apparently. They might withdraw him later this week, so be warned. There’s something in the water at West Coast that does funny things to key forwards, with The Big Q (Quentin Lynch) have a finger poking the wrong way and Daniel Chick losing one completely.

Matthew Pavlich & Michael Walters – both concussed last week, both named, both at risk of being withdrawn. Beware.

Jared Polec – to miss 8 weeks. Gotta go if you’ve got him.

That seemed like it could go on forever. And I’m sure I’ve forgotten players. If I have, shout out in the comments!

THE PATCH-UP

Injuries first. If you’ve escaped them, well done – you get the special conundrum of deciding if you want to upgrade your rookies or build the warchest. This week, there are three rookies on the bubble, and none of them inspire confidence for our Supercoach sides. Midfielders Will Hams (with an average of 25), Blaine Boekhurst (33) and key West Coast forward Fraser McInness (45) are all we’ve got line up. While McInness has good job security, especially with uncertainty around JJK, no-one but van Berlo looks like losing cash so we have one more week to wait and assess.

Next week, Dan McKenzie and Josh Glenn look like tasty rookies, so I’d recommend trading down then and only up this week. If you can’t go up, don’t go at all. We’re about to get a crop of cheap, cheap premiums in the midfield, so save that cash!

TRADING PLACES

Eddie Murphy’s

-54 – Robbie Tarrant
-36 – Patrick Cripps
-35 – Lucas Webb
-30 – Jack Lonie
-30 – Nathan Krakouer

Significant others: A Oxley (-2) J Hogan (9), P Seedsman (8)

Dan Aykroyd’s
(one day I won’t have to google his name every time I type it)

290 – Tom Rockliff
220 – Matthew Lobbe
215 – Rory Sloane
192 – Jarryd Roughead
189 – Joel Selwood

Significant others: K. Jack (147), S Jacobs (141), J Watson (140)

THE ROOKIE RUMBLE

We’re approaching the point where I will list players who have been traded out. Eventually players will drop off the list, but this will happen well after most have moved them on, so rest assured I will try to list as many as possible.

DEFENDERS

Oxley has to start after last week, and Saad is filling a hole for the suns in the midfield. The backline is getting a lot easier to pick now McIntosh has slowed down the scoring. I will still be loopholing Adam Oxley, simply because I can. Dan McKenzie a slight sub risk. Kelly a big one.

Oxley
Saad
McIntosh
McKenzie
Kelly
Brown

MIDFIELDERS

Josh Glenn made a stellar debut last week against Brisbane, scoring 103. However, I liked his game. Lots of kicks, 7 contested possessions, 5 tackles, accurate. Miller too stood up in the absence of the whole Gold Coast midfield. Heeney looks like he’ll be the sub, but if he’s not, switch him with Krakouer, Miller or Glenn as soon as you can.

Cripps
Miller
vandenBerg
Glenn
van Berlo
Krakouer
Newton
Heeney
Brayshaw
Duggan

Cam Ellis-Yolman is missing 2 weeks due to a hamstring problem – possibly more. Still has 100k to make and has been scoring tons – if you can, hold him.

RUCKS

What the ruck? (Yeah, because that pun hasn’t been used enough… Sorry. I won’t use it again.) I don’t get to make a paltry attempt at crying over a lack of rookie rucks this week. On the bright side, Peter Wright has been named for the Gold Coast. If you’ve got him, congratulations on winning the ruck lotto this year. If not, well we sit here and watch him for a bit. He’s an ask at $187,300, so see how he goes.

FORWARDS

Not liking the look of Salem against the swans. It will be wet in Melbourne this weekend and that’s not good for his disposal efficiency, which he depends upon. However, with Dawes back we should see a better score from Hogan – even if it’s wet. He did score 110 against Richmond in torrential rain. Lonie has also been scoring well of late. If you can loophole Clark, do so!

Tarrant
Clark
Lonie
Hogan
Krakouer
Salem
Webb
McCarthy
Harris
McInnes

Good luck community. By the looks of this year, we’re going to need it.

Love your work Patch

Simo

Great article…..Like most people been smashed this year in the middle field with injuries and now suspensions. My midfield is a bit of a concern with Fyfe, Lewis, Sloanne, Griffen, Parker and the usual rookies.

Thoughts on CYE to Pendles….Have $344 000 in the war chest with a downgrade from NVB. Should I hold the money in the war chest for those fallen premos like Rocky in a few weeks time of should I do the Pendles trade this week????..will have 22 trades left!

Mathew

I believe in always having pendles in my round 1 side so I say bring in as soon as possible

Traderlyf

i did the pendles trade to cover for lewis

SCaddict

You could probably do with a scoring injection in the midfield right now and Pendles is definitely the man for the job this week. Of course CEY probably has anywhere from $50-150K to further appreciate so it's a 50/50 call I reckon.

You'll probably need less than $50K to go from Cripps (assuming you have him) to Rocky in a fortnight from now so I wouldn't let that factor into the calculations too much.

Ben

Also did Ellis-Yolmen to Pendles this week. Had the cash from double downgrades last week. Pendles is a must have!

@t_woof

Nothing wrong with getting Pendles in. Arguably the most consistent scorer in the competition, and provides a very good captain option.

Simo

Thanks for the advice community just did the trade to Pendles lets hope he goes BIG!

Patch

Agree with SC addict here Simo. Pendles is a must and his standard deviation means he rarely drops in price. Nab him!

Sarah

Nice work Patch!

Ryan

Great article Patch!

To fill my last MID and FWD spots this week:
Heeney or Krak
AND
Hogan, Clark or Salem

Ryan

I know Patch gave his view but I still am undecided

Sc newby

I reckon he's nailed it but each to there own

The Ranger

Love ya work Patch. Thanks.

Andrew

Wouldn't you have expected Newnes to have stepped up with them missing the last couple games Patch?

Patch

That might be one way of looking at it, but I've heard a few mention that he averages close to 10 more points with Montagna in the side than with him missing and Newnes doesn't strike me as one who stands up and tears the game apart; he compliments others. I may be proven wrong, however.

dean billman

Newnes on the bench for me this week for me. Lowest averaging player in my back line this year so far.

Frank

How many trades does everyone have left (after this week)? How many SHOULD you have at this time? I've got 24 and feel that's about right.

Ben

how quick do you want a full premium team? No correct answer for how many trades should people have left. Every team's different.

Patch

You've got one more than I do. I think that 22-25 ballpark is where most people are at here.

Tyler

Still better than mine. I got 21 after this round

Sc newby

Love this article, perfect for my Late Friday lunch break, keep up the good work mate

Would like the communities thoughts, currently ranked just inside 5000 about 600 points of the pace, should I lick my wounds and concentrate on leagues or is there a small glimmering light at the end of a very long tunnel???

Sarah

I'm in a very similar position and I'm still going for the win! If you keep aiming for a team which can score as high as possible, then league wins should come anyway!

Sc newby

Was thinking much the same I dropped 3000 ranks last week on the back of 4 sub 70 scores but hoping that was a once off

chevvy

The bye rounds are a great chance to make up spots

Sc newby

Will be putting a fair bit of thought into that in the coming rounds chev, as a newby, am I correct In Saying that it's the best 18 scores for each round regardless of how many players you have on the park??? For example say I have a near full team the best 18 will count??? Obviously anything sub 18 will cop donuts

Darren_Bewick

That's how it works as far as I know best 18 scores count.

@t_woof

First time i've read the Panic Room, good reading…Nice work Patch!!!

I'm holding Hodge. Defenders are far too fickle this season. Gritting the teeth and playing McIntosh.

Hope you're spot on with Sloane. Already been hit with Hodge, Lewis & Bennell (after he finally went 146 BIG). Hoping he doesn't get subbed out if Adelaide are cruising towards victory.

Jack

23 trades left. I’ve made one this week which was Sheed to JPK. Still $176k in the kitty. Do I bloody trade Brett Goodes or not?

The thought of 22 trades left already makes me ill.

Patch

With 176k there's not much you can go up to, and I hate jumping on rookies early. However, without Jong or Wallis, Goodes should slip into the midfield and maybe pump out a 80-90? Any other opponent I'd trade but this week he might be a good'un.

Now I've said that they'll make him sub, but I'd hold for a week.

Ben

only if he's a sub

chris

goddard or franklin??

doin my head in..
also traded in JPK for griffen.. no point of holding it off as griffen isn't going to be a top 8 mid, whereas JPK will be i think

Patch

Goddard will stay around the same price for a few weeks in my opinion, but I still prefer him over Buddy because I'm a biased Essendon supporter. Goddard will be more consistent in my opinion.

zeesus

Franklin POD. im bringing him in next week. EVERYONE is going goddard.

Girdle

* Before last round, Buddy was owned by more coaches than BJ

Wattsieesq

I'll be bringing in Buddy in next week. He's got a reasonably high break even and I think he'll be cheaper next week.

Ben

buddy

Phil

Ok community I was originally going to trade Griffen for Fyfe but now that Ellis Yolmen is out (along with Lewis) I think I'm gonna need backup for Sloane just in case. Griffen is fit so should stay. That leaves Ellis Yolmen or Wallis for Fyfe. Ellis Yolmen has a good BE but we may not see him for a while, compared to Wallis a higher BE but should be back next week. So which one?

Patch

If you've got cover, Wallis. If not, Ellis-Yolman has to go.

Liam

Hold or Trade CEY??

Wattsieesq

I'm holding. I have enough bench cover and I think he still has money to make.

TrustYourGut

Probably hold.

But as always Trust Your Gut

Ben

depending on the rest of your team

Dons

Great article!!

Thoughts on upgrading Griffen to Mundy and newnes to McDonald?? Do you think Mundy and McDonald can both keep up their scoring for the remainder of the season (Mundy especially)?

Ben

no, Mundy can't sustain a 120+ average and paying overs for him while he's at a peak. McDonald could finish the season averaging 95ish which is elite for a defender

Patch

Mundy won't sustain his current average but is safe for 115 in my eyes. I know Dex is really keen on McDonald but my gut doesn't like them. They drop off. I'm more keen on Jasper Pittard personally.

zeesus

Just doing a straight Rich to Pendles this week as there are no rookies in the bubble to bring in. I'll wait to slaughter some cash cows next week. Sitting on 24 trades.

Ben

good

Patch

Lovely Zeez.

Ryan

Do i upgrade griffen to pendles knowing i still got 150k in the bank?

Ben

yes

Traderlyf

ben you honestly have no clue at all

Jay

Pendles is pretty much a must have, so if thats how you can get him in – then sure!!

jimmydowland

what should i do with minson

Ben

stupid question! trade!

Patch

If he can't break in after Cordy's last game he's not breaking in for a while. Off he goes.

jimmydowland

who to patch

POLLY

Wines to Pendles?

TrustYourGut

Yep!

Ben

why do you still have wines?

POLLY

Had good rookie coverage in Cripps ie 172 and 86 while wines was out and used wines as a great c loophole but now with cey out left me a bit bare with Krak on field to fill in for wines so think now is the time to pull the trigger to Pendles.

Patch

I'm also holding Wines because coverage was good and I believed in the Power of the Quads. I've kept him for this long so I'm going to keep him until he's back, but Pendles is a must have. Trade.

POLLY

Would have loved to let Wines mature but it appears the time has come to upgrade to the Grange in Pendles.

Pieman74

Fantastic work again Patch.

My team is looking like yours so I will list the players that I am thinking of getting rid of and get your (and the community's advice) on which of the following option I should go with because I just can't decide:

1) Burgoyne to Shaw or McDonald
2) Goodes to McKenzie
3) Lewis to Pendlebury, Mundy or Danger
4) Lambert to Krakour or Glenn.

Any thoughts/advice greatly appreciated.

Wattsieesq

With Lewis and Hodge out, I think Silk will go up in output so trade one is a no for me. I only trade in rookies when they are on the bubble so trade two is a no for me. Lewis is out for 2 weeks. I'd hold him unless you don't have bench cover. If you don't Pendles for me. Krak has sailed, so Glenn for me but as I said before, wait until he is on the bubble.

derek

Burgoyne will spend plenty of time in the guts this week. He is pure class and will score big.

Ben

lewis to pendles or danger

Patch

Hold Lewis. If any of those, #2. Goodes will drop cash. Don't like going before the bubble but sometimes you've just gotta. This is one of those times.

Pieman 74

Thanks Patch, Wattsieesq, Derek and Ben. I currently have Van Berlo and Newton on the field and Heeney, lambert and Ellis Yoleman on the bench. Thinking Goodes to Mc Kenzie (if Goodes is the sub) and Lambert to Glen to get some extra cash to upgrade to premiums in the future.

Pauly Walnuts

i'm looking at going early on trading in J.Glenn via NVB to build up cash and bring 2 Prems in next week ,but does anyone think that NVB might have a day out with a weakened Suns or by the same token Glenn might also have big game ,thoughts ?

Ben

probably should trade NVB but adelaide should win by 10+ goals and lots of SC points up for grabs

David

I moved Gray into mid for cover so I want to strengthen my fwd line I already have swan franklin dusty.i don't want Goddard, I was thinkin Gunston for Salam or is there somebody else I should consider?

Stevo

Who do you have alreasy

Ben

devon smith?

POLLY

Pod Gunston

David

Swan franklin & dusty r my premos so I want another fwd who might b a top 10 fwd by the end of the year

Jay

Zorko? under 500k and averaging 90+

Patch

Time to break from the pack: two players I have my eye on are Luke Dahlhaus and Dayne Zorko.

derek

the value pick is Ziebel, if you have a spare trade, he is serious value.

PD

Thoughts on Goodes to Mckenzie.
Don’t really want to because want another look at Mckenzie but Goodes to bleed $$$

Salem to JPK via krak to fwd line?

Defender I’m seriously looking at is pittard.
$450k & avg 99.4

Ben

only trade goodes if he starts as a sub

TrustYourGut

Hold Goodes I feel he will pump out a decent score this week

bUCKET__

Is the cash he bleeds going to be more important than the cash you could make with your trade if you stuck it out? I'm happy for him to leak a little and put up with the incontinence on my bench, as trading out other DEF rookies in coming weeks will net me more $ for upgrades. Who knows, Goodes is on the fringe of the 22 and wouldn't take too much for him to make the cash back.

Jack

Goddard, franklin or Zorko for pod ?

Stevo

Goddard while cheap

Jay

Franklin i think will average better than the other 2 from here on in…….but might want to wait a week – 127 BE and forecast for rain in Melbourne may hamper his score this week?

Crowmagnon

I'm looking at Dalhaus.

Patch

I'm really, really liking Dahlhaus Crowmagnon.

john

brad ebert or goddard?

Traderlyf

ebert

Ben

neither

fred

should i trade out rich

Stevo

No

Jay

It really depends on who you are planning to get in – he is averaging 96 (but 3 rd average of 85) and BE of 86. He should still go up in price but not by too much – he has almost reached his peak…….Personally, with the Premos that are going to be falling further in price in the next 2-3 weeks, you might want to hold onto him and turn him into a Rocky/Sloane/Lewis in the coming rounds…

Tom

Kelly to Pittard?

Stevo

Patch suggested it

Patch

Suggested it and enacted it. I can't praise the move any higher than that.

Hazey

I have Kelly too, no one really tickling my fancy though to bring in. Not sure I trust Pittard to keep up the 99 average and the other premo's have cash left to bleed. I was looking to Seedsman, but he has a bad butt now. I am considering holding then a downgrade to McKenzie next week

Ben

i like pittard

TrustYourGut

Don't know what I should do Community, All Help wanted!!! Please. Here is My Team http://gyazo.com/737926e5817f1f812a8692ba6ec89303

190k in Kitty 25 Trades Left.

Do I cut Ellis Yolmen, NVB or even Sloane who I bought in at his peak price of 640k two week ago :(.

If I trade out NVB I have to get in a player under 475k

If trading Ellis Yolmen out 522k to play with.

Or do I hold this week and do Nothing?

Id go with my gut, but I don't know what my gut is telling me.

Ben

if i were you, OUT: Ellis-Yolmen, VanBerlo IN: Pendles, Glenn. Pendles is a must have and should have leftover cash for upgrades next week. Maybe Cripps to Selwood

Ben

you'll be stupid to trade sloane

OldOcker

Hold and save your trades this week.
Next week Cripps is quite likely to have realised his cash generation.
Next week Paint the fence with Cripps and VBerlo. Premo and maybe Joshua Glenn if he performs this week.

TrustYourGut

Was leaning towards that, and you have just confirmed it for me.

Patch

Absolutely, Ocker.

@randomcliche

If I'd seen before tonight, I would have said NVB to karnezis. Just to add some cash. Suggest having a scout for some value Saturday morning. McKenzie, Glenn. Might allow a double upgrade next week.

Stevo

Loophole Selwood, Goldy, Swan or Bont?

TrustYourGut

Goldy

Jimbo

I like it TrustYourGut but If you didnt have Goldy then Selwood or Swan?

Ben

selwood

Sully321

Hi community I have used 4 trades
And have Goodes I'm thinking trading a week early to Mckenzie befor Goodes loses too much cash
Your thoughts?

Mozz

That's a good trade

Pom

Just traded Newnes for Mckenzie and then griffin to Pendles. Have i gone full retard?

Im sick of them being spuds and mckenzie going to make coin and pendles is gojng to go up in value a fair bit in the next few weeks. Do i need talking out of this?

Mozz

Why did you go Newnes OUT? Are there no other problems in your team?
Newnes does score 70-80 each week, that is what we expected him to score and that's good for a D5-6

Patch

Newnes scores better with Montagna in the side. Griffin to Pendles… I struggle to argue against. But hold Newnes.

Pom

Chopped newnes so i could afford pendles. And newnes be is over 100 this week. Pendles is 90ish. That or cull mckintosh or salem early. Whos good for salem if thats the best option?

Dom

Vc on pendles or sell old?

Dom

*Selwood

Phil

Both good picks but Pendles right now, Selwood later

Jimbo

Patch, Panic Room is fast becoming my favorite weekly JR community article. Perfectly timed wisdoms pre-lockout. Keep up the fantastic work.

So far I have only made 3 downgrades this year and dodged all the bullets (except Ablett). The warchest is currently at 253 K. So its time for 1 upgrade this week and no downgrades. I'm currently running with 3 on field rookies in the FWD line and reckon its one too many.
So its C. Salem > B.J. Goddard this week. Leaves me with 31 K.

Sometimes you have to go with the shoal. Community, can anyone convince me otherwise that this isn't good move?

Traderlyf

consider dahlhaus as well, he will be a top 6 forward for sure and only around 10k more

Crowmagnon

I like the look of Dalhaus.

Jimbo

Like it too Crowmagnon

Patch

I'll 3rd the Dahlhaus selection. Time to break from the pack.

Jimbo

G'day Traderlyf. I love the Dahl. Wanted to start him this year on the back of his amazing 2014 early form. He did tail off a bit last year but looks the goods in 2015 with so many of the doggeis MIDs missing this year. Very high on my watchlist. Cheers mate

Mozz

Definitely go Goddard. He is a proven scorer

wombat

@ Jimbo, you shouldn't use more than one moniker Patch!!!

Jay

Priddis or Dangerfield, the better option for the rest of the season?

Mozz

at this point in time Dangerfield. But come the end of the season, Priddis will be scoring massively. I'm looking to get Priddis in around Round 13-14

Jay

Cheers Mozz!! Very valid point…….have gone with Danger considering the fact Crows have Suns/Demons/GWS in the next 3 weeks, so hopefully a couple of big scores from him!!

TrustYourGut

Priddis

Zak

Hey community, would love your thoughts.

Two options this week are either:

Salem to Franklin

Or

Rich to pendles

I know Franklin has a BE of 126 but I think he

could make it this week. It would also

Allow me to keep a mid price scorer in rich

And get pendles next week. Rich plays Carlton

who doesn’t usually score great against but I think

he could possibly go up 10k

Mozz

Salem to Franklin

Patch

Rich to Pendles.

jake

Salem > Glenn
Lumumbu > Houli or Rance

thoughts?

Mozz

keep Lumumba, that's a waste of a trade

Salem to Glenn is a good trade

jake

lumumbu with 123 BE and underperforming houli should be top 8 def that all i was thinking about
cheers.

Sully321

what should I do with hibberd

Mozz

keep him if tere are bigger problems to deal with. He is a proven defender scorer so he might come good

Riley

Newton or Heeney on field?

Traderlyf

heeney if his not sub

Mozz

heeney

TrustYourGut

Agreed, Heeney if not sub.

wombat

You're the best Patch!!! I had no idea Lewis and Hodge were out, phew, you saved me some embarrassment! AND Rockliff's going down in price, wow!!! I'm all over him. "Stellar write up, patch, stellar!"

Crowmagnon

I didn't think people were allowed to like their own comments.
Sarcasm is the lowest for of wit.

Crowmagnon

*form

kevwal

Why do you bother wombat?

wombat

Excuse me for giving kudos to one of our contributors and their "efforts"! As I said it is a "ripper of an article" filled with "originality" and stuff we simply did not know! Keep it up patch, loving it!

SideBySidebottom

You've quoted yourself as writing something you didn't actually write. I'm not sure which of those two is more interesting.

wombat

Who wrote what in the when now??

WombatsFC

I'd like to emphasise that this particular wombat is in no way affiliated with WombatsFC please do not confuse us. My comments are predominantly highly intelligent, wickedly funny and extremely modest.
This little fella wombat having a go at patch is yet to develop those skills but he is having a go. I just wish he'd use a different name until he develops his vitriol skills to the acceptable level.

Tom

Salem to Pendles and Newton to JPK?
91k left in the bank.
22 Trades Left (Not Enough???)

Mozz

22 is dangerous!! I would consider holding trades this week because you need to HOLD THOSE TRADES!!
Up to you my friend, they are good trades but i would be cautious

derek

what does your team look like after the trades?

Tom

Defenders – H. Shaw, J. Gibson, H. Lumumba, A. Saad, A. Oxley, J. Newnes, Bench : K. Mac, N.Brown

Mid : Fyfe, Pendles, JPK, Danger, Sloane, Griffen, Vandenberg, Miller, Bench: CEY, Heeney, Lambert

Ruck : Goldy, Nic Nat

Foward : Swan, Dusty, Gray, Hogan, Clark, Krak, Tarrant, Belchambers

Kev

Just the peddles trade, tom. Agree with Mozz here, 8 trades down and I'm guessing most of those were because of LTI's. Hold off now until your cows are plump

Tom

So Salem to Pendles or Newton?

Jobe

Great stuff!

Who will average the most for the remainder of the season out of Mundy or Hannebery? Considering Mundy who seems more consistent but would love some input!!

Mozz

Mundy definitely

derek

Ross Lyon is the coach of freo!!!

Kev

Don't see either being top 8 mids come season end

Patch

Mundy. Hanners will drop off.

Jay

I think both are punching above their weight at the moment – if you started with them, great selections – but i think you'd be chasing points going for either now….better options available IMO, dont think either can sustain the 120+ average..

Stevo

Is it worth trading Lewis to Pendles? Or Salem to Webb for the cash

Stevo

If Lewis was out for longer, yes – but for 2 weeks, I would advise against it……i would look to one of your cash-cows to get in Pendles and keep Lewis on the bench for 2…

Hold Lewis

Patch, Panic Room is fast becoming my favorite weekly JR community article. Perfectly timed wisdoms pre-lockout. Keep up the fantastic work.
I know its a shoal move but looking to upgrade Salem > B.J. Goddard this week. I have only used 3 trades to downgrade so far. I know its a big leap up in cash but would help the forward structure of running with only 2 on filed rookies rather than 3. Still leaves 31 K in the warchest. Can the community convince me otherwise.

Patch

Thanks Jimbo.
I'm not a fan of the shoal moves. Here at the JR community we love to break that mould – and I'd be giving Luke Dahlhaus a good, hard look before pulling the trigger on Goddard mate. That said, Goddard will be top 8 and should be picked up eventually.

NVB to Glenn thoughts?

Traderlyf

yep

I'm honestly not sure what I'm doing this year.

I don't see anyone worth downgrading to yet. I've reluctantly gone NVM to Glenn. I don't usually jump on a player after one game but thought "What the heck" Sticking with Ellis-Yo and will try and use him as a loophole over the next 2 – 3 weeks.

Newnes I should have traded weeks ago so I may as well ride him until a few other premo Defenders drop a little more.

Salem? I still see him making money. Don't see a downgrade target (Already have Tarrant) and not sure on who to upgrade to without blowing my whole savings. I'd have $600K to spend if I traded Salem. I'm considering a left field pick like Adams, Bell or Dixon but just not convinced on any of them.

OzSonic

Just worried if I don't start making moves I'll stagnate and fall behind the pack.

Patch

Refer to above, Oz. Dahlhaus is my break out of the mould pick. I assume that's van Berlo to Glenn which I approve of.

OzSonic

Cheers Patch. Yeah sorry Van Berlo. Glenn one game is a worry but GC are a real mess.

Dahlhaus. Love him as I'm a Doggies man but I'm also a tight arse and it'll leave me just $80K. Love your work by the way!

Patch

I just want to have one more look at him. He's looking an absolute lock next week though. But if he lets you go to Dahlhaus, I'd do it. Even with only 80k left. I've dropped to only 50k left but double down next week and up the week after. Plenty of cash still to be made!

TOPHAWK1

I am torn. I have 141 K in the bank. Taylor Walker to Dahlhaus? I am also really wanting Pendles by trading out Beams. There are rumours Beams is not fully fit and has not set the world on fire. Which switch is better Patch?

derek

Clarke, Tarrent or Hogan on field in fwd line? need to choose one. no loopholes avaliable

Josh

Tarrant, Clark, Hogan in that order.

TOPHAWK1

I am playing Tarrant and Clark this week. Hogan will be under significant pressure against Sydney and the conditions could be wet/greasy. Not that usually bothers him too much. My gut says Clark, just over Hogan.(E)

Cheers

Josh

which 3 from 5 on field?

Clark, Hogan, Tarrant, Lonie, Krakouer

I'm leaning towards – Tarrant, Clark, Hogan

Dean

is SC down?

matt

Would like to know where everyone is at with trades.. Want to make trades but concerned using trades.. So with none this week sit at 25 left..is this the norm..
Thinking of Salem to Bont as my only trade this…
Haven't upgraded at all yet this season . That would be the first if I went ahead..
Thoughts community.

Have about 330k in bank before the trade.

Patch

I'm sitting at 23 after this week. If you need a point boost, upgrade. If not, hold.

matt

yeh it will obviously in points but don't think he will change in price that much this week anyway (font). so can always wait till next week i guess.
wouldn't mind seeing how t michell goes again.. very cheap and is always lurking around the 100

Bob The Dog

Anyone have an opinion on this –
Only want to do 1 trade this week, either Rich -> Pendlebury or Ellis-Yoleman -> Mundy… The latter seems the obvious choice, downgrading Rich to another rookie in the coming weeks to keep the war chest high, but I feel I should have Pendles in my team, Opinion?

Thanks Patch, nice work.

Patch

I like the first one, Bob. CEY won't lose cash. But if you can't cover him, CEY must go.

Bob The Dog

I have sufficient cover (although also have Lewis in my team). Just a little nervous about Mundy's consistency drying up, and not having Pendles in my team for too long (just like last week) could be damaging. I seem to have answered my own question. Woof.

matt

def get pendles… cey still got money to make
