Patch’s Panic Room – Round 20

Published by Patch on

Patch - Supercoach Panic Room MasterGday community! If you’re still here, you’ve likely made it through to a semi-final; either by kicking out a good mate from an elimination final or on the end of a bruising from a top 4 aspirant.

If you’ve got the week off – take a well-earned break. If you’re outside the top 100, hold your trades, ignore rank, go for glory. If – like me – you’re lining up this week, good luck to you. That is, unless you’re General Soreness, who I have to overcome to progress to a preliminary final.

What a week we got served up by the Supercoach gods last week! Fyfe, Franklin, Deledio, Bob Murphy, Nic Nat’s late omission and Beams and Wines all dropping out in the same week – with popular sub Bailey Dale racking up the one paltry point – caused absolute panic and devastating impact. I’m a bit more smug than Chicko was this week, as I managed to avoid most of it and post a 2569 (far and away my biggest score for the year) and progress one more week before General puts me to sleep for the year.

We’ll get into the news, praying to whatever god you believe in it’s better than last week


THE NEWS

It is. A host of premiums return this week, with the likes of Nat Fye, the ever stoic Bob Murphy and Brett the ‘remember-when-I missed-all-those-games-at-the-start-of-the-year-and-Patch-told-you-I’d-do-it-again-when-you-needed-me-mostDeledio coming back in for their respective sides.. Although now I’ve let the ego slide out a little bit I’m going to get hit with a POD going down.

Although having given back some of our premiums with one hand, the Supercoach gods taketh away with the other. Much of our bench cover in Brayden Maynard, Bailey Dale, Sam Colquhoun and Dan McKenzie all missing this week.

Anyone holding Nathan Krakouer will be pleased to hear of his revival to the Port side, and likewise Jack Steele returns for GWS to relive the bench pain.

Nic Naitanui will miss this week as well as he copes with the passing of his mother, and we send him our condolences, for the void in his life is much, much bigger than the hole in our Supercoach teams.

Sydney superstar Lance Franklin will not return this week, still troubled by his back, and if you’ve got trades it’s time to move him on. If not, you’re going to have to hope he plays next week should you make it.

Michael Hurley will again miss this week’s game and Shaun Hampson has been dropped. Hampson’s omission will greatly boost the score of Ivan “The Mullet” Maric this week, so anyone with the mullet should be stoked.

Matthew Lobbe has also been dropped, likely leaving anyone with Paddy Ryder better off score-wise.

Whispers are also abounding that Shaun Higgins – after defying Jock all season – might raise a single finger salute to all those who trusted him by being in doubt with – you guessed it – a niggling injury. If you’re looking to trade him in, I’d wait to find if he’s playing first.lekgraph

Of course, being finals, I’d expect another five late outs just to kick us while we’re down.


THE PATCH-UP

If you’re looking for trade-ins this week, I’ve been persuaded on twitter to hit up Trent Cotchin, I’d have a good, hard look at Kade Simpson if I had any trades left and still like both Dayne Zorko and Chad Wingard up forward.

Both Josh Caddy and Brent Stanton are also smokies in the midfield, averaging 118 and 121 over the last five rounds respectively. Stanton especially loves playing without Jobe in the side. Both come with plenty of risk, however.


TRADING PLACES

Is pretty much done for the year, as we’re not needing to watch prices rise and fall in anticipation of fallen premiums or maturing cash cows. So both Dan and Eddie can have the next few weeks off, as they go do other movies like Ghostbusters and Shrek.


The rookie rumble is of course gone as well, so that leaves me with less time spent writing and more time alternating between begging General for mercy, the foetal position and praying to the vengeful Supercoach gods. Make sure you also check out Lek’s magnificent moustache bringing forth the Word of Supercoach, and the essential captain’s report by Barron von Crow.


Until then community, I hope to see you next week as we march towards victory! Best of luck, people!

Thoughts on my team? 2 trades left and $175,000 in the bank.

Hodge, Shaw, Simpson, Murphy, Gibson, Newnes, Pearce, Goddard
Fyfe, Priddis, Dangerfield, JPK, Parker, Hannebery, Treloar, Rockliff, O'Brien, Lambert, Adamson
Goldstein, Maric, Read
Gray, Martin, Swan, Goddard, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Steele, Daniel

I have a couple of options:
Hold trades, and put Lambert and Steele on field for Buddy and Treloar having 2 trades still remaining.
Trade Treloar and Buddy to 2 other premos leaving me with no trades left.
Trade O'Brien to either Harvey, Mitchell or Ziebell (All DPP) to cover Buddy or Treloar, and put either Lambert or Steele on to cover the other. This also allows me to have premo bench cover for fwd and mid.

Thoughts?

Liam

Trade Buddy.
His back is stuffed.

Patch

Treloar and Buddy out. Now isn't the time to be holding premos.

Mac

And just back Lambert for bench cover if premos get injured?

tom

Zorko and Pendles in

Anonymous

bring in pendles and wingard

Anonymous

or bartel

Liam

Great stuff Patch

Patch

Thaaanks mate!

Spooners

Great stuff Patch, I’m looking to trade Delidio in this week and then next week trade KK or James Kelly to a Kade Simpson, Higgins or Roberton.

Is this a good plan to finish off my year?

Thoughts appreciated

Patch

I reckon Lids in is a good move, despite my rant against him. Not as sure about the backline restructure – might hold off if you're in a strong position I'd hold otherwise Simpson is a good move

Spooners

Thanks mate

Adam

This week ive gone

Griffen to Rockliff

Grundy to jacobs

1 trade left 53k feeling good

Patch

Looking good, too Adam!

Adam

Cheers ay

Andy

If Higgins is out who is a good replacement for same $$$? Any word on T-Mac?

Patch

Haven't heard anything on T-Mac, but personal preference would be Kade Simpson

Andy

Cheers

Cliffy

Great reading as always Patch, legendary.

Need your wisdoms guys, I am too a Franklin holder, and this is how my team is looking so far:

Backs: Shaw, Houli, Hodge, Newnes, Ibbotson, Lever (Hamling, McKenzie)
Midfielders: Pendlebury, Priddis, Hannebery, Dangerfield, Fyfe, Kennedy, Selwood, Gray (Maynard, Steele, Amon)
Rucks: Goldstein, Maric
Forwards: Swan, Martin, Dahlhaus, Goddard, Ziebell, Lambert (Franklin, Knight)

Thought of a few possible options:

Option A is trade Franklin out via DPP swing sets to get in Simpson and put Lever to my Defence bench as handy bench cover for later rounds, while playing either of Steele/Lambert/Knight at F6.

Option B is trade Franklin to Bartel, means Lever will continue to play as my D6 (most likely over Hamling).

Thoughts community?

Thanks 🙂

Cliffy

Oh also should mention $89,800 left and 1 trade remaining, with 2 Semis to play and 3 other leagues I'm putting my feet up before the Prelims for them next week.

Bye Week

Option B

Patch

Thanks, mate! Option B for me

josh

Keep ibbotson and smith or trade smith next week or trade both?

Patch

Depends on if you're in a must-win game this week or next. If this week, then trade.

Josh

It's next, so what should I do this week ?

Rossco Pico

Have needed to trade for semi final this week;

Nic Nat –> Stef Martin
Treloar –> Sam Mitchell

Thoughts? Have been tossing up between Jacobs, Sloane, Steven (all POD against opponent)

Bye Week

I’m needing a replacement for nic nat too.

Stef martin is my #1 option – plays Carlton who is only playing kreuzer in the ruck. No Levi, wood, warnock all due to injuries. And Goldstein went big vs them recently.

Patch

Martin in for me Rossco!

Mitch

Hurley out with no trades and can’t loophole Edwards from bombers or Goddard at saints due to playing at same time

Who to have on field?

Bye Week

Goddard

Jim

Edwards

Patch

Goddard will be more consistent and hit you a 55, but Edwards could hit 80. Go hard or go home at this time of year, so Edwards for me.

xav

I have one trade and in a semi this week do I trade buddy
Got no money so the best premo I can get is jack revolt
If I swing Higgins forward I can get houli

Patch

Yep trade Buddy. Liking Reiwoldt as a point of difference.

Donavan

Sounds like Higgins is a chance to miss also, so dont swing him if your Defensive bench is stronger than your Forward bench.

tom

Is Treloar only missing the week? And if you have Buddy trade him, his back is stuffed and will hurt your team when he pumps out a 50. Get on Zorko, Harvey or Bartel, even Bennel!

Stegosaurus

Hi community!

Help me out with my dilemma

Sauce Nd tom Mitchell

Or

Blicvas Nd bartel?

Nd go!

john

Is Pendlebury a good option this week?

Adsy

I'm through to the prelim in my main draw, but still have a team selection issue for this week in another league:
Still 3 trades left, 135k in the bank…
1. Trade Buddy for a Zorko, Bartel or Goddard type OR
2. Leave Buddy to trade out next week (taking an extra week to look at potential trades for main league) and play Lambert or Steele OR
3. Shore up backline by either trading Saad to anyone in the backline, or Lever to someone ~450k?

Head says Buddy to Goddard which will leave me about 90k to have 2 upgrades in prelim
Gut says leave things as they are, 2 trades next week with one up the sleeve if I make a GF
Heart says I won't win anything with Saad or Lever starting in my backline.
Any suggestions? Cheers in advance all!

some random guys

What should i do?

I've got the week off by winning both of my Qualifying finals.
PROBLEM is i've got Buddy and i'm not quite sure what to do with him.
Should i trade him or not?

Donavan

Wait till next week, unless your playing for rank.

Luke

Liam

Griff

Donavan

Newnes

Youngy

Flip a coin

Texy

5 trades left + 5K. Scored 2563 last week. Week off this week. Have Franklin and a struggling Yeo to upgrade. Have lever, lambert, Steele, Daniel, Maynard on bench. What would you do?

top hawk

Swan, Parker, J Kennedy or Pendles for VC tonight? Sticking with Goldy as C.

My gut tells me to go Pendles.

Any thoughts?

Youngy

Go for JPK he scored 136. haha

George

Due to omissions I have had to start Nathan Brown on the field… Please send help…

john

Thoughts on my team? 2 trades left and $175,000 in the bank.

HopeIdowell

I don't think you will be able to field 18 players with what you currently have.

Benjamin

What do I do with Buddy and Treloar??? I have 2 trades left but the week off… thinking of leaving Steele and Lambert on to cover?

Donavan

Dont trade until next week

tom

Lambert is scoring well, I would hold if you have the week off, no need 🙂

COCAINE ZERO

According to Wikipedia, Brett Deledio doesnt have a middle name, I think you just made it up ! 😉

Youngy

Already thinking about next year.

Team name for 2016 will be "Pirates because we Arrr"

Anyone seen or come up with some good team names?

Mac

Just Adcock

Dan Danglebery

Jack Hoff

Bart

Playing in 2 of my 5 leagues this week (round off for the other 3).
I have 3 trades left and 207, 700 in the bank and my starting rucks are Blicavs and Nic Nat.
Should I double trade Nic Nat & a cash cow to upgrade to Goldy. (I'm about 1000 short).

Or do I look at Martin or Jacobs in a straight swap, if so which one?

Cheers

Donavan

Jacobs

top hawk

Dayne Swan. Wow. Glad he shaved that beard off!!!

Derek

All week I had Parker on my bench as a loophole option ( have Motlop as M9) at 7.00 I decided to put Parker on field. Not sure why. Anyway, I’ll be stuck with his injury score this week. This is why I have a strong M9.

Youngy

Bad luck Derek, I'm felling quiet smug about myself with Parker sitting on my bench, hope Griffen can score more than 49….

Derek

Your smugness has just turned to a full belly laugh. Griff did good

Swans2012

Tough break Derek, could have been worse, at least you’ve got the trades to fix it!!

Youngy

Wish I had 5 trades

Swans2012

I’m with ya, I’d settle for 1 lol

Derek

I used most my cash going Daniel to Sloane (via hGoddard plus via McKenzie). How much do you think Parker will be next week?

Youngy

490k ish.

If I had to guess 496,900

some random guys

Well, Luke Parker has changed my situation. Lucky i don't play this week.

john

2 big questions i need help with fella's.

1. Brodie Smith or James Kelly for D6? i have both in my team so one has to be benched, but cant loophole as D8 is playing.
2. Tom Mitchell pulled out a NEAFL score but is my mid substitute. Who to take out of my mid to get his score? Danger, Fyfe, selwood, lewis or rockliff?

thanks fellas!

Swans2012

I think smith goes 100+ this week but common sense says the safety of kelly.
2. That’s tough, no easy call but I’d lean to Lewis without looking at his past history v cats….

Shemm

Do I take pendles 118 or go with goldy

Swans2012

Go for Gold

Youngy

Goldy

Mac

Lucky I have the week off and two trades up my sleeve with Parker looking like he's done a serious injury.

Donavan

Who do I play at D6 – no loophole available.

Smith or Hibberd?

Thanks

Swans2012

Hibb just…

some random guys

Looking back, I got Goldstein at the lowest price he's been this year. His price has raised 240K since i traded him in.

Parker has put a big dint in my plans but i got 3 trades left, i need to upgrade 2 players and get rid of Parker.
Who would be the top 5 forward premos between 450K – 550K. Anything just outside those price guidelines are good too?

What should i do? I also need a Mid to replace Parker. Who's a few midfield option between 450K- 600K?

Any suggestion would be helpful.

Luke

Non related to supercoach, but how good will Western Bulldogs be next year if this happens: http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/brisbane-wo

Timmy

Gez that fills a position of need for them. Depends on what they would have to give up of course.

Youngy

Will Tic Tac play next week? or is it worth just trading him? I can cop a 0 not playing in leagues this week. Although I still want to get a relatively good rank come end of season sitting around 1000.

luke

Goldy on 30 in only 10 minutes. Bloke im playing this week doesn’t even have him. Oh captain my captain

Youngy

https://gyazo.com/4bfa9a30eeae71fb6bb41335c6e5c38… Only 8 supercoach points???

Jake

Need to trade out treloar who for other than Priddis rocky Lewis

Derek

Last 3 weeks i haven’t gone Goldy as VC. All week I had Dangerfield but changed just before kickoff to the safe option Goldy. He looks like getting an akward 120ish

Pretty happy with my Sloane trade.

Should I take BSmiths 75 or put Motlop on field tonight against Hawks?

Derek

I don’t need to play either.

Derek

If I want I could put Motlop on field instead of Bartel, Dahlhaus, Selwood, pridis or Fyfe. But I can’t loophole

@mysterycannon

Just did some math…. Parker to Sloane next week will cost about 6k… i have $1500 in the bank… Bugger!!

Derek

Hopefully you arnt very good at Maths. That would be a great trade.

I was hoping Parker to Rocky, but I only have $29k

Youngy

Not having Danger in my team this year has really ruined my team

Derek

Talk to Swan2012 about to having Goldy!!!

Youngy

Poor guy

Swans2012

Yep, that Jacobs over goldy decision cost me my season….in saying that 2016/16 inc Jacobs vc has me travelling ok this week

Liam

Should I take Goldy's 122 as captain or risk Zorko/Selwood

Barry

Risk zorko

Derek

Goldy or risk Fyfe or Priddis?

Youngy

I'd be risking Fyfe

Youngy

Quick Blicavs, Martin, Sandi or Maric at a nice price of 420k to replace Nic Nat

Have 4 trades left

Dean

Hi all if you can share your advice it would be greatly appreciated, here is my conundrum.

I am in a total of 4 leagues but finished 1st in 3 of them and won all my league games last week so I have a free week so to speak for 3 of my leagues. Now the other league

Opponent’s score is 1160 his Captain was Goldy so his points are added in this 1160.
His different players are Rockliff, Martin, Selwood, Birchall, McDonald, Bontempelly.

My score right now is 1010 and my different players are Bartel, Blicavas,Hodge, Saad, Bennell, Mundy to play. The score of 980 doesn't include Goldy's double points.

We both have Gray & Shaw currently playing and both have Simpson, Houli, Martin, Murphy, Dahlhaus Fyfe & Priddis to play.

I currently have the VC on Goldy but am willing to put it on either Fyfe or Priddis only because his 6 different players have a higher projection score then my remaining 6 players.

How do you guys see it, do you think I should roll the dice by putting my Captain on Fyfe or Priddis or should I take Goldy’s?
If you think I should change captains who is the better option Fyfe or Priddis?

Cheers guys quick advice needed.

Derek

I’m thinking I’ll go Fyfe.

top hawk

Fyfe should be nice and fresh for the derby today. I could have a big game. If he does, you will probably this league as well.

Pauly Walnuts

Everyone has him in their team but i cant believe the scores Robbie Gray got today – DT 82 SC 133, unbelievable !

Youngy

Devon Smith 55 Really Hurts

top hawk

Wow! Anyone have that "Has been Mitch Robinson" in their side?

Shark Move material?

Swans2012

Someone was talking about him this week, can’t remember who though…..
