Patch’s Panic Room – Round 12

Published by Patch on

Patch - Supercoach Panic Room MasterIt’s a special Thursday edition of the Panic Room, as for the next few weeks we have Thursday Night Footy on our hands. The plan is to release the Panic Room on Thursday and update it on Friday morning with the ins and outs from team selection, so make sure you check back in from midday tomorrow!

Bring in it, community. Jog it in. Come on. Huddle up. It’s half time of our Supercoach season. It’s a dark time. We’ve been smashed by injuries. We’ve been smashed by the byes. We’ve been smashed from all sides, all year. It almost makes you want to give up.

I personally have sat through thirteen trade-worthy injuries – not including the one or two week injuries and general soreness. I go into next week with 11 trades. Yes. 11 trades. For the rest of the season. I am at my wits’ end and times are tough. But we stick together, community. All of us here are in the trenches, fighting not for greatness, not for glory, but to field a bloody side each week. Make no mistake – it’s not war. It’s not the end of the world. But my god it feels like it sometimes.

We can do it. Band together. Let the wisdoms of Jock Reynolds, the Father of Fantasy himself; pour in through your raw and bloody ears – torn by the bombshells, week after week, of premiums dropping off – in the Thursday Night Podcast. Get your eyes feasting on Lekdog’s video – who has procured an absolute masterpiece this week. Johnny Bruin is back in the trenches with us. Dex has delivered again. Chicko is back. The comments section is going off. Get in amongst your community. We will not be beaten. We will not give in. We can do it. Now let’s tear this game an absolute ripsnorter of a second half.


THE NEWS

Before we get into the news, we need to talk about how to deal with Thursday Night Football in the Supercoach sense. Teams come out at 6.00 on Thursday. Lockout will begin – I assume – at about 7.40. Over the next four rounds, any trades involving players from the Thursday night game will need to be completed before Thursday lockout. During the lockout, you can’t reverse trades. You can still trade after the Thursday match, you just can’t trade anyone who played in that game. So keep that in mind! Right, let’s get going.

Shane Mumford’s ankle has given way and he is out for the year. While this will probably crush any reasonable expectation of the Giants to make finals, on a more serious not it leaves many a team down a ruckman. As Lek mentioned in his video this week, the main three options are Ivan Maric (ave 105), Stefan Martin (108) and Sam Jacobs (102). Blicavs has his bye next week, but can be considered. I’ve picked Martin. He does more round the ground than the other two. I’ll go into Max Gawn in the Patch-Up.

Jack Steele will FINALLY make his debut this week for the Giants, and Leon Cameron has said that both he and fellow first gamer Caleb Marchbank ($197,300 DEF) will start on the field, avoiding the Kermit vest. Significant relief. Normally advise against trading in players who haven’t played but if it’s it saves a donut, of course you pick him. We’ll all have him just after his bye. Definitely wait on Marchbank though.

Jake Lever and Mitch Clark are both going to miss with ankle injuries. Lever should be back next week and Clark after his bye. I hope. Both have achievable breakevens so I am holding, and recommend you do the same to squeeze as much cash out of them as possible.

Potential upgrade Jeremy McGovern is likely to take the field this week for the Eagles, but beware of the late out if you’re one of the 7% of teams that have him!

Port Adelaide speedster Matt White will miss 4-6 weeks, which leaves a hole in the Port midfield. This hole was filled by The Chad (Chad Wingard) on the weekend, and with a 5 round average of 107 he is very, very likely to slot into my side after his bye.

Grant Birchall will not return this week for the Hawks. At $462’000, averaging 90, could be a decent pick up if you were looking for a POD in the backline.

Mumford was not the only year-ending injury from Tuesday, with Dale Thomas and Cam Pederson also undergoing season ending surgery.

Paul Puopolo and Michael Douglas also return for tonight’s game.

FRIDAY NEWS UPDATE!

News from the team drops last night were a lot nicer than we’ve become accustomed to in recent weeks, but there’s still enough there to cause grief.

The Krak is Back. Nathan Krakouer comes straight back off the rookie list and back onto Port Adelaide’s bench. He could be the sub, but might escape it, too. However, Karl Amon hasn’t returned for the Power, with no word on him being omitted or nursing his lingering calf injury.

A few other rookies have also dropped off, with Tom Cluery being replaced by Jackson Trengove and Lions pair Liam Dawson and Harris Andrews missing from their respective line-ups.

Both Rory Lobb and Andrew Phillips* have been named as rookie rucks for the Giants, but I feel Lobb will play forward more than ruck from how they used him last year. If any Giants fans out there (*sniggers*) has any Intel, shout out in the comments!

*Scratch that, Phillips has been withdrawn from the match.

James Kelly is obviously missing for Geelong after doing an ankle – which is expected to keep him out for 6-8 weeks. Speaking of veterans, Nick Dal Santo returns for North. If you’re as quick and sneaky as Dex is, you might pick him up in SC Draft before anyone notices, but at this stage he’s unlikely to be relevant to our regular SC teams for a month or so.

The Bont – Marcus Bontempelli – is back for the Doggies, alongside my sneaky Thursday night trade-in of Liam Picken, fresh off a resigned contract and projected to score no lower than 91 on the way home (with 8 scores of 110 or above). I know the SC Gold projections are “occasionally off”*, but I’m pretending they’re not to make me feel better about myself. Back to team news, Lin Jong and Stewart Crameri will miss.

*sort of in the same way Melbourne are “occasionally off” their game


Patch Up

I mentioned Maxy Gawn last week as a potential option to swap Tom Bellchambers to. Lek covered Gawn in his video, an while I’m slightly more optimistic, Gawn relies heavily on hitouts to advantage – which is not good for us. Once he comes up against Todd Goldstein,  Stefan Martin or Aaron Sandilands – which he will soon – he will drop serious turds in our sides. I think he presents huge value, but I will not trade him in. In my situation, I can’t afford to.

Otherwise we are presented a huge chance to Patch Up our sides. I’m going to list some guys on each line who are have their bye, two of who are rolled gold and one cheaper option. The cheap option is for those who – like me – might not have the option Johnny Bruyun has pushed this week in getting proven premos in.

DEF

Hodge
Simpson
Houli

MID

Beams
Mitchell
Cotchin
value; Sloane & Lewis

RUC

Martin
Maric
Jacobs

FWD

Deledio
Martin
Dahlhaus
value; Zorko


TRADING PLACES

Eddie Murphy too cool to be going down, so he’s on the way up. Dan Aykroyd – while also cool – is on the way down. Players with a bye will have an asterisks next to them.

Eddie Murphy’s

-67 – Josh Glenn* (who is still missing)
-55 – Joel Hamling
-41 – Andrew Boston*
-40 – Elliot Kavanagh*
-26 – Karl Amon
-20 – Orazio Fantasia*
-15 – Max Gawn
5 – Adam Oxley*
38 – Corey Enright

Dan Aykroyd’s

181 – Steele Sidebottom
169 – Robbie Gray
158 – David Armitage
154 – Eddie Betts
151 – J. J. Kennedy
141 – Elliot Yeo
137 – Matthew Priddis


THE ROOKIE RUMBLE

Play your rookies. All of them. The best 18 count.


Let’s hope we get to 18 when the teams drop tonight.

Outstanding article. What’s everyone’s thoughts on Edwards from Richmond

carlashirley90

Remember that podcast last year when crouching one said he traded in B.Crouch from Adelaide as his massive pod?

Your Edwards is just and could be a massive pod that could help you win against other coaches who have Martin or Lids

@wheels_1987

POD but Edwards is not a proven premo
i would go Brandon Ellis over Edwards if you want a better POD

@AusSports84

I'm thinking Edwards over Lids. He's just ferocious at every single contest. Most importantly when he doesn't have the ball he will tackle and pressure like no other. The extra 80K helps also!

Josh

That’s mine thought as well looking for a mid fwd already have Gray, swan, Martin and titch

scrofl

And don't forget about Lids' lingering achilles tendon! Edwards for me too.

Youngy

He's definitely in his breakout season so far

derek

I can see him scoring 100's, but not anything more. consistent player. probably get him if he was $40k cheaper.

carlashirley90

Patch, Lek Dog, Chicko and Johnny you guys are the best

I am now seeing hogan as a keeper can't bring myself to trade him for cash at all

Patch

I digress, the community here is the best; it's why we're here! Thanks though.

I'd have disagree on that front. I think Hogan has done his job, and I love the kid, but you need a proven premium who will hit 100 week in, week out. Hogan won't do that for us, at least not for a few years. For mine, thank him for his service and cash him in.

@wheels_1987

Hogan is a KPF. You really need to move him on. But he is a beast though…

Lou

Its he's first year, all rookies are more than likely going to have a worse 2nd half to the season compared to the first.

Youngy

Ill be trading him out next week in his bye don't see him as a keeper. Agree with Patch

carlashirley90

Meant as my F7

Ethan

would prefer a ruc/fwd at f7

Jake

Don't let emotion dictate your trades! I had to trade my boy Oxley this week.

@wheels_1987

ouch, i slaughtered Saad but im holding the Ox, im getting attached to my little lamb, and when it comes to the slaughter i just dont want to think about it

Patch

I'd also like to give a shout-out to Dex and Barron, who are also the best 😛

Chicko

Agree Patch, it is a team effort that makes this community what it is! Thanks Carla though, we all do it for the good of the people!

Liam

Great stuff

Rob

Smith, Sloane, and Beams in this week for me.

Jezg

I’d hold on smith unless you absolutely must trade. You will get smith 25k cheaper next week.

Rob

I have to trade mate

Adam

why cant smith get 118 tonight?

scrofl

Aaaaaand he scores 68 😛

@AusSports84

Happy to wait on both Adelaide boys. Most coaches who have had them the last 6 weeks will tell you how much they hate them .I prefer to wait till they DO SOMETHING!

Swans2012

Agree but I also prefer to have 18 playing, welcome aboard smith

@Seekersupacoach

What about Sheed? Has the Rd13 bye but has a 144 BE this round! Do you take the cash hit and have a player on the park or trade early and hold an Oxley, Kolodjashnij etc. He currently $333k but could drop back to less than $300k

JMG

Tough call. My first instinct was to say you’ve held him this long may as well have a warm body on the park this week.
BUT long term Sheed will need to go whereas Ox and KK are potential keepers at least til finals given the unreliability of defence.

Tofor

Good Question.
I've got him. He's gone this week for Simpson via Lumumbra (who I'm giving his last hoorah!)
He'll bleed 30-50k this week alone.. and he could quite easily be the sub, or subbed out again…

Patch

Once again, Seeker, I've forgotten about Dom Sheed. Not sure how I keep doing it.

Look, it comes down to if you value a 33k over a donut? If you're going to smash your league, I'd trade. If you're struggling, hold.

Tyler

Really not looking forward to this round. Got about 16 players playing (with no late outs) and my best 6 mids have their byes. At least I'm only going for league wins now, so I can forget about this round soon

CashCows

So do we hold rocky? Leppa said 1-2 weeks.

Everyone reckon he'll come straight in or will he be in the 2's?

Nato

i think a lot of ppl are tossing up the same question.

i traded him to Sloane this week, so need to make a quick decision whether to stick with it

SCaddict

Wouldn't worry about the twos. He'll come back straight into the seniors once available. Leppa says 1-2, the official injury list says 3-4 so I'd probably split the difference and guess 2-3. I traded him out a fortnight ago to Wallis myself fwiw.

CashCows

Yeah i think with what leppa said, it'll be 2+. So you're on the money there.

Assuming 3, is 3 weeks too long? Thing is I brought him in just before he injured himself the 2nd time round. That's what's playing on my mind.

Plus I need bodies on the field this week. This is going to be a very tough call.

SCaddict

It's a hard call right now CC. If he makes a somewhat unlikely return next week then it probably would've been worth taking the donut belly ache this week. But if it stretches out another 3 weeks then he's probably worth cutting loose now so it's one of those crystal ball deals.

Even when he returns it will probably take him a few weeks to get back into the swing of things before he's pumping out huge scores again.

So he could be one of those players many coaches look to bring back just before the SC Finals assuming he returns to the Rocky of old and doesn't get injured again between now and then.

Nato

G. O. R. N……. Gone!

Tofor

I traded him straight away.
If I still had him, I'd keep him. If you've held him til now, I'd keep him.

@wheels_1987

im holding rocky

General Soreness

I am panicking because its Thursday football mid year without a public holiday anywhere nearby, thanks for being there to catch us Patch, lovely work.

Patch

It's not my ideal day for Supercoaching, that's for sure General! Thanks buddy; good luck cracking well and truly into that top 50 this week!

Tim

I have 11 trades left.
Def: H Shaw, J Gibson, Newnes, H Lumumba, McIntosh, Lever, McKenzie, Hamling
Mids: Fyfe, Pendles, Priddis, Shiel, Dangerfield, Martin, Sloane, Wines, Dumont, Boston, Glenn
Rucks: Goldstein, Blicavs, Read
Fwd: Gray, Roughead, Franklin, Swan, Deledio, Ryder, Clark, Dale

Should I trade S Edwards in as a fwd for P Ryder???
Ryder should be back in 1-2 rounds but I am afraid his output will suffer on his return.
On the other hand, a fwd-ruck is a handy backup for ruck.

JMG

You’ve got I assume Dusty Martin in the mids. Could trade Ryder for a mid if so inclined using sub button . or trade Clark for Steele so u have a fwd mid link on fwd bench and swing Dusty in to cover Ryder.
With only 11 trades I’d hold though. Your defence is gonna need the upgrades the most

Ethan

Ryder makes a perfect F7 keep him for the rest of the season

JMG

Great work again Patch!

Just wondering how many donuts is acceptable to field this week if going for rank?

I’ve currently got 2 donuts (fielding 16 players) but am toying whether to trade McKenzie to Steele, not sure if its worth the trade (will have 13 left after my 2 planned trades this wk)

Alex

If ur going rank trade, you need the points

Patch

As few as possible when looking at rank! Every donut costs you massively. If you're looking at rank, channel your inner Crouching and go BANG BANG!

Jackson

need some help can't decide who to get in my backs out of Houli and Simpson. they both have a high ceiling but can both have stinkers, Houli's avg is 103 and he is priced at 480k and simpson's is 95 and he is priced at 506k.do i go with Houli because he is 26k cheaper and averaging more points or do I pay a little extra cash for simpson

My current Backs- Shaw, Hodge, TMac, Enright, Saad, Dmac (Pearce, Hamling)

Patch

Simpson has picked up since Maltyballs was sent on his merry way in a big way. I'd pick him over Houli personally.

Liam

Thoughts on my trades this week.
Saad to Beams via dpp
Oxley to Simpson
Schade to Hamling
Cheers

JMG

Solid

Youngy

Solid trades

MOC

Gone with Cotchin,Edwards and Simpson for Oxley, Clark and Miller

Thought?

@AusSports84

I've also gone Simpson & Edwards but I cannot explain peoples need to trade out Oxley. The boy is this years Stanley/Suckling guy from years gone past. He is a KEEPER!

Paul Walnuts

Agree,also has BE of 5

Youngy

As a tigers fan I can tell you that Edwards has come out of nowhere and I wouldn't be confident on him keeping up his current form

Paul Walnuts

Is C.Windgard seen as a keeper post his bye ?

Youngy

I feel like there is better options out there than Wingard post bye…

Patch

If you picked him up he would be,

@wheels_1987

i had him from the start ( and Titch ) if they were both playing round 1 i would have had both all year.. absolute gun and LOCK

Johnson

kmac to hodge saad to simpson and krak or dmac down to steele. leaves me with 9 trades but 2 off full premo

Cold Pies

LOL gonna be a terrible score for me this week…

4 playing Mids, 5 playing Def, 4 playing Fwds, 2 playing Rucks … carnage

M. Clark OUT B.Deledio IN
N. Krakouer OUT L. Hodge (Via DPP) IN
D. MacKenzie OUT J. Hamling IN

kib

TBC –> STEELE
CLARK –> EDWARDS
MCKENZIE –> SIMPSON

thoughts?

Youngy

Solid trades. If you can wait on Steele I would tho

Patch

I'd wait on Steele and move Hogan on before Clark if possible – lower BE.

panther

which three to trade in
Hodge, Simpson, McDonald, Picken, Laird, Bob Murphy, Houli

Youngy

Hodge, Simpson and Houli (or even Rance at a very appealing price of 428k)

Patch

Think Hodge is overpriced, but the #1 pick down back. Simpson, Houli, Hodge, McDonald, Picken, Bob then Laird.

@AusSports84

My forwards are currently Gray Swan Martin Goddard Mitchell Pavlich Tarrant and Clarke. Will be keeping Pav at F7 in my final side and this week turning Clarke into my final forward premo. What are people's thoughts on bringing in Dahlhaus at F6? Tossing up between him Deledio and Edwards. His next month is soft and he should average over 100+ which is swaying me… Currently ranked 300 and chasing total points. Thanks in advance!

Swans2012

I like the dahl

lolattack

sloane, marc murphy, cotchin or lewis?

Youngy

Cotch

Flozza

Sloane

Mac

Pridds, Danger, Sloane, Lewis Murphy. Which one?

Youngy

Danger

G

Please help

Which two to pick out of

enright

Hodge

McDonald

Simpson

Thanks

Donavan

Simpson & McDonald

Luviboy1

Hodge and Simmo

Youngy

Hodge and Simpson for me

Hodge seems to be playing lots of Mid time and I feel Simpson is a very safe and solid option and is somewhat of a nobrainer

@wheels_1987

Harry Taylor?

Matt

Dalhaus or lids for my final forward spot? I’m worried lids will be managed with his ankle or re injure it which has me leading towards Dalhaus

Luviboy1

Both solid picks, but for the reason you mentioned Dahl.

Rob

Sloane, dusty or maric VC??

Luviboy1

In order: Dusty, Sloane, Maric.

@wheels_1987

i went Sloan
got 117
im taking that as my C score

Dean

Everyone is talking about Edwards & Dahlhaus in the forward but no one is mentioning GUNSTON why?

hedski

I’ve had him from start. Been solid.

Dean

i agree and im bringing in Dahlhaus & Gunston this week as it was my initial bye round 12 plan since round 8 but now im questioning should I bring Edwards instead.

hedski

Your call deano

@wheels_1987

KPF

@boltie_monster

Sloane, hodge, deldio or martin as VC?

Luviboy1

In order: Martin, Hodge, Sloane, Lids.

@wheels_1987

Sloan got 117 LOCK

Mac

Who do I pick out of Danger, Priddis, Lewis, Murphy, Cotch

Leon

Had same decision, minus priddis. Spent the coin and went with red hot danger. I know that goes against the "buy low, sell high" but he seems set for a huge next month.

TOM

For next week, who is the better option, dahl or titch?

Ben

Mitchell, not even close

Youngy

Da House

@wheels_1987

Titch

Harrt

Should I hold rocky or trade him and is broadie smith a good option to trade in? Cheers

Luke

If you're going to trade him, atleast get a gun midfielder for him. Loosing about 10-20 points / week with that trade.

Harry

I didn't mean rocky to smith I just meant is smith a good option to get this week seperately

Luviboy1

If you've held Rocky for this long, hold. Apparently he'll be back next week or after the byes.

@wheels_1987

hold rocklobster

Tofor

Krakouer has been elevated from the rookie list! If you've got him, you could hold a bit longer!

Leon

BE of 109 so might drop some coin. Tossing up whether to trade him out for steele. Will sleep on it.

mcleal10

I'm thinking about trading out CEY for Steele. I thought about this trade early tuesday since GWS are missing a few valuable players. I prefer this trade since it can produce cash for my next round. These are my options.

CEY –> Steele.
Oxley –> Steele (swing McKenzie to defence).

Obviously CEY is playing this week, but the reliable Oxley isn't? Which is more beneficial?

Luviboy1

I'd go CEY to Steele personally. If I still had him (silly me), I'd hold Oxley till after the byes then trade.

SCaddict

I'd be doing everything to keep Oxley around with that low BE.

Is it worth taking a donut this week? Only each coach who has him can answer that but he still has plenty of cash to make by the looks and obviously his JS is indisputable after his last fortnight.

Youngy

If CEY is playing I don't see a reason to trade him.

I feel that Oxley isn't worth copping a donut for he may go up to maybe 430k at the most, so you are trading him out pretty close to his peak. Still think this is the best time to trade out Ox even with his low BE.

Although I guess it all matters on your team and how many playing players you have this week and if you are going for league or rank.

derek

I have had Cloke from the start. Been with him through the his 55's and 67's, but also there when he based out his 7 goals and another 5 goals last two weeks. Should I try and keep him or trade him to Delidio or Buddy?

Donavan

Ride the good form. If he starts to get the yipps again, or cant get the ball, then trade him, but right now he is red hot, and not many defenders can stop him in his current form.

@wheels_1987

Hold Cloke and go for the theme park ride that is his form and scoring
thats the reason you brought him in i guess and going through the season he is an interesting POD.
Make him your final upgrade for your team going into finals

Sully321

Who should I get rid of? Saad or Oxley learning towards saad out due to higher breakeven but not sure about oxleys consistency

Youngy

Personally for me Saad. A lot of Goldcoast players coming back even tho he will still play he might get less of the ball and more bench time, playing a different role possibly.

Ox is the one to keep. Feel he is just going to keep getting better

@wheels_1987

Saad

Youngy

Thoughts on my Trades community? Option 1 or 2

1,
Miller Out Beams In
Saad Out Hamling In
Vandy Out Lids in

2.
Vandy Out Lewis In
Clark Out Dhouse In
Saad Out Hamling in

Looking OK for Round 13 with 10 Out before my 3 trades so most likely 7 to 9 Out next week

Leon

option 1 has higher ceiling but lids is always a worry. great trade options

Donavan

Option 1, but I would select Dusty instead of Lids. Gives you more cash, and is more likely to play every game.

Patch

Option 1 Youngy.

Ryan

Captain tonight – Danger, Sloane or Hodge?

wise old man

Dangers last 2 scores against Hawthorn are 159 and 173, so I'd go him

hedski

Vc danger

Donavan

of the 3 id go Danger.

That said I like Priddis or Goldstein this week as the captain, so VC Danger if you have either of these guys.

derek

Beasley 102k or Hamling $123k? DEF rookie.

Liam

hamling

derek

or Jake Kolo? $123k

Liam

He has bye next round so i would still go hamling

Donavan

Hamling, he looks like he will play for the rest of the year. Does the little things that coaches love in defenders.

Patch

Hamling.

jimmy

Houli or Laird

Patch

Houli mate.

jimmy

also is picked a valid option down back

Patch

I assume that's Picken you're asking about? I've traded him in. I might regret it but the dogs' run home is tasty. Very, very tasty.

Johnson

time to get rid of krak with that break even i already have 18 platying?

Patch

I'm keeping him, but will hold him for a bit longer to squeeze more cash out of him.

Stickman

Would wait a week, and trade out another rookie with a round 12 bye.

Shayne

I had Rockliff at the start and then traded him out and back in again,should i just hold him or burn another trade and go to Sloane

@wheels_1987

i traded ablett for sloan, then sloan out when injured, now just traded sloan back in.
sometimes we need to do these trades

The Roughnuts

I have Mummy and to save a number of trades to free up cash I was considering the following trade.

Mumford to A Philips. To free up this kind of cash $340k I would likely need to make 2 maybe 3 trades. It also means potentially losing valuable bench cover if one of my players on field go down.

My plan was then hope Philips goes up at least $100k or more and swap him to a premium ruck come finals time or after I have upgraded my entire team.

I have 17 trades left with $140k in war chest at moment. So this trade will allow me to spend my next 3-4 trades on upgrades to players like – Hogan, McIntosh, Saad and CEY to proven premiums.

Am I going crazy or do others think this move could pay off?

hedski

Get big stef

The Roughnuts

thats the safe option and is what my brain is telling me, but could Andrew Philips be the Tom Nichols of GWS and maybe score some good 70-80 scores go up in value to $350k then swap him at the end of the yr to Stef.

Im ranked 769 overall so the $50k is gone its all about cash leagues now.

Donavan

I like the idea, but think I would take a middle-ground approach and trade Mumford for Kreuzer.

You will still pocket plenty of cash, and possibly not have to upgrade Kreuzer later on.

Jambo

Nab Goldstein before he goes nuts against GWS.

Patch

Like for like, Roughy. Stefan Martin for mine. Not sure how Phillips'll go, or even if he'll hold his spot.

Stickman

Good in theory but would prefer a mid pricer such as Kreuzer or Gawn rather than Phillips. They also have potential to make cash, but will average more than Phillips.

dannyyboyy

going 3 upgrades this week. 755k to spend.

geary for sloane via dpp
n brown for simpson
saad for beams or lewis

tossing up between beams and lewis. beams leaves me with 175k, and lewis leaves me with 265k

im lookin at griffin for hannerbery next week and i still want priddis so the cash and lewis would be nice but beams is less risky with a better chance at higher output.

which way should i go, im playing for rank.

cheers community!!!

Jambo

I reckon for a POD, pick Swallow. North have a fairly soft run home.

Patch

Beams for mine Danny!

dannyyboyy

yeah i held off on getting lewis so ill get beams in, cheers patch!

dannyyboyy

glad i dodged lewis's 57!!!

General Soreness

Nice!

Ryan

is tom mcdonald a must this week? low breakeven now coming off a 125 biggest score for the year or is there another def premo that we should target this week?

Donavan

Simpson would be my 1st target, then McDonald & Houli.

Ryan

awesome woops i forgot to mention i have simpson

Jambo

No. Pick him up after his bye.

Stickman

Not sure if McDonald will get ant cheaper. So if you have Simpson then he is great choice. Would still wait for after his bye personally.

Francis

PLEASE RESPOND – in panic mode!

Lewis, S. Mitchell or B. Ellis?

I'm leaning towards J. Lewis but I really don't know!

Jambo

Follow your gut. If its Lewis, then go for it.

Paul Walnuts

i have Lewis and have put the VC on him, no guarantees just a gut feeling, like Ellis as a POD , he will be a lock in SC in coming years

Patch

Sammy Mitchell has done it so far this year, but I'd back Lewis home out of those three.

Stickman

I think Lewis will be more likely to be a top 8 mid by seasons end out of the three

Ryan

who should i trade out for t.mcdonald?
miller > via dpp
Saad

Patch

Prefer Miller personally.

Stickman

Agree, Miller needs to go. Saad can be held until your last upgrade.

@wheels_1987

trade both out

John

Trade or keep Saad?

Patch

Depends on your trade situation and team makeup.

Stickman

Trade, the goal is to get to full premo.

@wheels_1987

trade

Luke

Thinking of going these 3 trades to free up some cash. Should be able to field 19 players this week.

Mummy -> Martin
Saad -> Houli
Mitch Clark -> Steele

Team would then look like:
Houli, Higgins, Murphy, Newnes, Ibbotson, Oxley (Hamling, Kolo)
Fyfe, Beams, Parker, Selwood, Griffen, Sloane, Wallis, Cripps (Steele, McKenzie, Boston)
Goldstein, Martin (O'Brien)
Gray, Swan, Martin, TMitch, Franklin, Motlop (Hogan, Tarrant)

Currently ranked 2460th, 13 Trades left, 291k in the bank. Next week will finally get rid of Griffen who will become Pendlebury, Cripps up to a premo and then figure out who to trade for Smith in defense.

l. Gibbs

which midfielder should I get i? leaning towards Sloane and Lewis thoughts?

Stickman

Sloane is under 500k so leaning towards him.

Luke

Hope you went Sloane…

Leon

question of the round

TOM

Hodge, Houli, Murphy

Stickman

Got 720k in the war chest.
Going for the triple upgrade this week.
Thinking of going Saad to Beams
Geary to Zorko
Brown to Simpson.
Thoughts?

Patch

Remember Johnny Bruyn's advice this week; rolled gold if you can. I'd go higher if I can – not overly keen on Zorko the Magnificent; he won't have much mid time with the Brisbane ins.

Stickman

Would Cotchin be a more valid selection then, as I have the available cash? Or is he just as much of risk as Zorko?

General Soreness

Cotch solid

Tom

Who to put the Captain on?

Goldstein or Gray

Billo

I'm in the same boat, I'm leaning towards Gray atm.

paul de geeter

Sloane has signed on the dotted line this week. Three year deal. He has committed to the crows for 3 more years.

I reckon he will be pumped.

At his price now, I have traded him in this week. Bloody bargain. Slapped the V on him as well.

Anyone knows his SC score so far tonite?

Cheers

Derek

I’m looking forward to trading out Griffin to either Sloane or Rocky next week

Baggy Pants

Jacobs 30 SC points at half time and 52 DT points. 27 hit outs 7 possessions at this rate he might end up with more hit outs than points.

Donavan

Bought Gunston in this week, has been consistently good this season, until tonight.

I am at work, so havent seen the game, what went on with Gunston, was he injured and subbed-off?

Thanks

SCaddict

No injury. Hawks just got it done by committee tonight and neither Gunston nor Roughy needed to fire a shot.

Unfortunately KPPs can be notoriously up and down as you probably know so you just have to take the bad with the good.

Derek

I made a “No Hawks” rule this year, they just share it around to much. 13 different goal kickers…. Not good for SuperCoach.

I almost brought Hodge in this week, just a bit expensive for what his return will be.

B Smith will be rookie priced soon

Patch

I thought Gunston looked like he'd hurt his hand – not going for marks or hard at it. Commentators mentioned it a few times, too.

Riley

Issue with left pinkie, wasn't confident going for marks.

Liam

Why did i bring in brodie smith…

Swans2012

Because he’s bloody cheap, and if your like me needed a cheap hole filler to field 18, worst case scenario he goes to d7 looper/cover. I think he warned into the game a bit, will be better next week, but the 100’s could be a while off….

Swans2012

And by a whole I mean maybe next year….

Swans2012

Not whole while
*and by a while I mean maybe next year* lol

SCaddict

Another $25K drop coming up….

Dean

Dont stress guys he will be one of the most traded in players next week, I like him and always was going to bring him in my side in round 13 – Although i might wait until round 14 now because he will drop quite a bit. His score of 68 wasn't to bad considering.

He may not score big numbers for the next couple of weeks but I still think he will be scoring consistent 90's from round 15 onwards.

Swans2012

Yep and most importantly, his 67 is 67 more than than donut I would have had and is still value for his 330k price tag. Happy to pay the 25k premium for that reason alone, am looking forward to sitting him at d7 round 14 though.

Rick Grimes

He may well become my D7 also, but I really don't see him staying at a 67 output level. I see him gradually coming back up to elite output. He's just underdone for match play.

Tofor

Just waiting for him to bottom out.

@wheels_1987

i did the same thing
if it wasnt bye rounds i would have waited another week but had to take the punt

hes gunna be so cheap next week 🙁

Dean

Glad i didn't put Gunston in now, that was a shocker. Sloane in next week

Jambo

Agreed.

Francis

Can someone please tell me how much $ Krak will drop if he scores 50 with a breakeven of 109?

Jacob

About 30k.

Nato

you can check out tooserious.net for a price projection sheet.

pretty handy

Tofor

If he gets games, he will drop in the near future, but almost certainly increase over the coming weeks.

Jambo

After a lot of "um-ing and err-ing", I traded in Shane Edwards (Tigers) and Luke Dahlhaus at the expense of Oxley and Adam Saad.

Thank you Oxley and Saad for gift-wrapping me two solid premiums! Thank you for the consistency!

Jacob

I like the Edwards pick. I've jumped on him too. Huge POD but keep it quiet we cant let too many people know about him!!

General Soreness

I like Edwards pick as well but ended up going Deledio given his proven. Both injury risk with Deledio's achilles and Edwards calf.

Jambo

True that. I reckon Edwards is more likely to sneak under a team's guard then Deledio plus Richmond have a tough run home. Both working in Edwards' favour (plus DPP).

Jambo

We cannot let that happen right 😉 I also brought in Beasley at the expense of McKenzie and moved McGovern back into defence. As McGovern's in doubt to play, Beasley is sitting on the bench as an emergency just in case he misses.

Mitch

Take hoges 122?
beams selwood goldstein gray martin are other options

@Rem_Wah

I am. Not worth the risk with Fyfe out this week.

@wheels_1987

take the 122

TheCompletePackage

You'd seriously consider putting the 'C' on Selwood??

Mitch

Has a good average against Melbourne but they’ll probably chuck cross on him

hedski

Jordie mackenzie in for hogan wouldnt be surprised to see him run with him

Walto17

Awkward for those who overlooked smith a great pod for Lewis lol.

Pieman74

Awesome work again Patch. My dilemma this week is whether to trade Newes or Saad. If I trade Newes, I can get Houli or Simpson. If I trade Saad then I can only get Murphy (WB) which might be a good POD. Newes and Saad are very similar scoring wise, however, Newes has a high b/e next round and most likely lose cash while Saad has a lower b/e and will make a bit more cash. I could also trade Miller but not sure if I will have enough cash to upgrade and don't know of any mid/fwd rookies to bring in given most of the rookies in this week are playing their first game. Any thoughts, advice greatly appreciated.

Patch

Newnes has been averaging above 90 when Mav Weller plays. For that alone I'm keeping him.

Have a gander at the Doggies' run home. Might go a long way to answering that question! 😛 (Hint – it's very, very good)

Pieman74

Thanks Patch. I want to keep Newes but after trading Rocky to Hodge last night I have limited cash left in the salary cap. I would just have enough to bring in Murphy which sounds like an even more tempting proposition based on the your comments above but not enough to bring in Houli or Simpson. Also, is it worth me also downgrading Miller to Steele or wait until next week to see if any other mid/fwd rookies return.

joe

brett del vs dustin martin??

hedski

Dusty every day

Patch

As many who read me in rounds 3-6 may recall, Brett Deledio's Achilles and I don't get along. Think he'll be rested. Martin.

@wheels_1987

flip a coin

Macka

I have 2 trades left with $515,000 in the bank.

Simpson, Shaw, Hodge, Gibson, Newnes, Hamling, Lever, Pearce
Fyfe, Selwood, Beams, JPK, Parker, Treloar, Rocky, Miller, McKenzie, Dumont, Steele
Goldstein, Maric, Read
Gray, Martin, Swan, Franklin, Tarrent, Hogan, Goddard, Lonie

I want Tom Mitchell and Bartel to be my last 2 forwards. Was considering Dahlhaus, but not sure. If someone can convince me to get him that will be fine.

Was thinking going Miller to Priddis, I know he hasn't had his bye but I think he it the best option there is. I don't trust Murphy/Cotchin.
Then, this is the tricky part. Was thinking I trade Lonie, SUB Steele Forward, SUB, Newnes into the middle then get Houli/ Murphy. That will leave me with no fwd/mid swing sets. Otherwise, is there any other trade suggestions?

Patch

The Doggies' draw reads BRIS. STK. CAR. GCS. GEE. COLL. ESS. PTA. MEL. WCE. NTH. BRIS. Dahl loves playing the lower teams. I'd nab him, personally.

I removed a swing set this week to get Danger. It's worth it provided you plan to get it back as quickly as possible. Like the Priddis move.

Macka

The only thing is i cannot afford dahl and priddis…

Patch

Ah the good old cash problem. How much are you short by?

Derek

Dogs will be top 4.

Is there anyone else from Dogs we should consider? Murphy, the Bont? Anyone else

Jambo

I wouldn't consider the Bont. I think he's already peaked. Murphy is one. Matty Boyd is another. If you don't already have him, nab him mate. Huge POD.

Cliffy

Hi Guys,

I didn’t get on Sloane this week since I have my Defense and my Forward lines to fix this week, currently have made one trade in M.Johnson – Hodge, and wanted your thoughts on these next 2 trades:

Saad – Simpson (won’t lose DPP DEF/MID since DMac is on my Mid bench)

Clark – Dahlhaus

$$$ isn’t an issue for me

Cheers guys. 🙂

BCHawks

Go for it great trades. I would Pick up Sloane next week if you can as he will have a low BE.

Cliffy

I plan to do Griffen – Sloane next week, that a good move too guys. Had enough of Griffen, it will virtually be a straight swap in terms of $$$.

Cliffy

* is that

BCHawks

Great move and one that I think a lot of people will be doing next week if they don't already own Sloane.

I N Pieman

Trading griffen for a mouldy sandwich is a good deal

Cliffy

That best sums him up this season, well said haha!

Patch

Love it Cliffy

Derek

I can’t believe that $$$$ isn’t an issue.

I have my next 9 trades mapped out to the dollar, even factoring in possible price changes.

If money not a problem I would suggest Delidio

Cliffy

Actually, I hovered over my Defenders and noticed two guys that I have question marks over coming into their Byes for this week. Ibbotson and Newnes. They worth holding this week, or does one of them have to go? Would they be players alright to have leading up into the Finals?
