Loving the podcast! Also loving the end of the byes.

I have Libba and Kerridge remaining in my midfield and I'm planning on upgrading them to Selwood and Hanners. Does anyone see any issue with bringing those two in? My midfield at the moment is: Danger, Pendles, Sloane, Gaz, S Mitchell, R Gray, Kerridge, Libba. I am a little worried about Hanners run home and I am also worried about the cover I have on the bench. Should I aim to keep one of Libba or Kerridge as bench cover or go all out and get the guns?
Cheers Guys

Go Selwood,Hanners.Wouldn't worry about Hanners run home That would give a dam good midfield go for it

Best defender besides shaw docherty Simpson laird and rance? And who is better to trade Ruggles Collins or Bailey Williams?

Steven
Guest
Steven

depends on how much cash you have if you can ride of williams do it to mcveigh. Boyd, JJ

Saalih

Can afford anyone

Kumarchode
Guest
Kumarchode

Williams all the way, ruggles and collins provide good bench cover

The Ranger
Guest
The Ranger

If you go with McVeigh and keep Williams it open up the Def/Mid swing.
Collins is decent back up.

Saalih
Guest
Saalih

I want the player who will score the most points from here on out. I am thinking maybe bartel pittard or Boyd.

Hawks

Bartel or JJ

Scotty
Guest

Plan to Downgrade Rose, Trengove and Collins over the next month and upgrade Cripps > Coniglio, Petracca > Zorko leaving me with Mitch Robinson as Fwd/Mid bench cover and around 250k in the bank for my remaining two trades.
Anyone see any problems with that??

50_Shades
Guest
50_Shades

So, you've got seven trades as of now.
Realistically that's two or three upgrades max and then you've got injury cover so you'll be at the SC gods mercy of who you can trade… Good luck.

Steeeve
Guest
Steeeve

Current mid premos: Danger, Gaz, Pendles, Hanners, Neale, Selwood, Rockliff. Who would you rank as the next best?

Gray

Steeeve
Guest
Steeeve

Thanks all. Value doesn't matter but those I had been considering did not actually include Sloane, so that's an interesting one.
I'd looked at:
Luke Parker (can go bang bit inconsistent and not a pod)
Called Ward (easy run home and undervalued)
Dylan Shiel (see above)
Matt Priddis (underperforming without NicNat but proven super premo)
Robbie Gray (best of this whole bunch imo but tough run home)

Derek

Mr consistent, JPK.

Southern S

Great value at 550k, and under 5% ownership even this late in the season is unbelievable.

Moustachio
Guest
Moustachio

Would not describe 107.8 av for 554k as great value, just okay. Unless you think he will average significantly more on the run home.

Southern S
Guest
Southern S

Was more thinking of great value for JPK as a player in general who is usually around the 600k mark. He could do anything from here and average 120 for the rest of the season, he's capable.

Tommo09

Is it worth trading Petracca to a premo fwd next week even if it will be F7?

Tommo09
Guest
Tommo09

If so, Merrett, Deledio, Montagna, Kennedy or Gunston?

Lachy
Guest
Lachy

I'd probs either get Merrett, Lids or Gunston tbh

Tommo09

Tommo09

I'm thinking Montanga only because of price

The Ranger

Any of those options are good but it depends how many trades you have left and whether you need to keep the DPP

LJB

LJB

Thinking I'll trade in selwood and maybe franklin to reach full premo. Im unsure on franklin. Thoughts community

Kev
Guest
Kev

Grabbed him last week when he was 1k less than Kerridge, was rewarded with a 114.

Swans gunning for top 4 and no Tippett. Go for it!

Hawks

Franklin has been very consistent this year, even scored ok in the wet

50_Shades
Guest
50_Shades

Sure, who doesn't love the roller coaster ride of a key fwd… He is playing good footy though.

I don't think I would do it, but understand the attraction

Kev
Guest
Kev

Rounds 1-10 he had 8 100+ scores and his lowest was 83, so not as up and down as previous years. Some bad games against gc and gws though.

Averaging 18 touches, 6 marks, and 4 goals. At his price I see it as a safe gamble

Rockbanker
Guest
Rockbanker

I have 9 trades and $84K. I have Dangers, Pendles, Sloane, Abba, Ward, Hanners, as well as Wines and Liba, both of whom I have had from day one. I am thinking of trading the latter two for Parker (Cheap) and Zorko so I can switch to my six quality mid/fwds if need be. Your constructive cricism is most welcome community.

Booster
Guest
Booster

Trade Libba and get Neale.

Maestro
Guest

Depends which Abba; Benny or Bjorn?

50_Shades

I like your thinking and the mid/fwd swing may be important.

Pinidu
Guest
Pinidu

I've got 10 trades this week and 240K in the bank. My only rookies are Mills, as well as Libba and Wells on field and an injured Michael Barlow.

I'm already planning on a Mills > Neale trade.

My second trade this week has me at crossroads; do I play Petracca (FWD bench) until Barlow comes back OR trade Barlow > Zorko OR trade Perracca to S Motlop who will cover for Barlow then become a bench swing man….

Thoughts community?

lolattack
Guest
lolattack

Barlow to Zorko if going for rank, Petracca to Motlop and holding Barlow if going for league wins.

Jimmy
Guest
Jimmy

Sounds like you have a great team. Id say given that you have the luxury of trades I would get rid of Barlow for Zorko.

Dont trade in Motlop he will do your head in.

What about trading in Callan Ward instead of Neale; it will give you more money and you can therefore possible upgrade petracca to someone decent and allow barlow to remain on your bench until he gets back.

Pinidu
Guest
Pinidu

Thanks for the suggestion Jimmy. I had a think about it. The problem is I already have two GWS players in Shaw and Greene. And, I believe that Zorko is a must have. But cheers anyway.

The Ranger
Guest
The Ranger

Looking good Pinidu! With 10 trades I reckon you just go BANG BANG Neale and Zorko.

Jimmy
Guest
Jimmy

Use one trade to bring in Ward or two trades to bring in Pendles?

I have 7 trades left.

Getting rid of Zahakakis

I N Pieman
Guest
I N Pieman

Tough call but save trades & get Ward

Pinidu
Guest
Pinidu

Yeh definitely save the trade and get Ward mate. They'll both average about the same from here on out anyway and the pies have a really tough draw.

Southern S
Guest
Southern S

Massive call saying Ward will average the same as Pendles who has averaged around 120 for the last 6 years……………….

I N Pieman
Guest
I N Pieman

Good point southern. But the extra trade will certainly come in handy

Southern S
Guest
Southern S

True, but I couldn't go into finals without Pendles in my team.

Pinidu
Guest
Pinidu

The pies have a very hard draw from here on. With Richmond and Gold Coast being their only expected wins. Pendles is also under an injury crowd, a better team wouldn't let him dominate in the way Carlton let him on Saturday. Factor in the extra trade and Ward being over 100K cheaper and getting Ward becomes the right decision.

Southern S
Guest
Southern S

While I agree with most of your points a right decision can not be concluded till after the games have all been played my friend 😉

Pendles has been said to be carrying an injury all year, yet he's averaging 120.6

Ward is averaging 108.9

Pendles is a champion of the game, Ward is not and that is the key point I will leave you with.

Ward is a great choice in this situation but not having pendlebury when he's averaging 120 is supercoach blasphemy.

Pinidu
Guest
Pinidu

Indeed he is Southern S.

As a one eyed pie I could go on all day about my love for Pendles. He is my favourite player of all time. I've played SuperCoach for four years now and I haven't gone a single week without Pendles, and he never let me down with a bad score.

His last score below 70 was round 3 2012! 🙂

Allow me to tell u that it was with a heavy heart that I advised Jimmy to take Ward.

Poetry in motion…

Jimmy
Guest
Jimmy

Thanks for the tips guys. I agree not having Pendles is killing me but if I don't have injuries coming into finals I'll bring him in for either Wines, Libba or Cripps

50_Shades
Guest
50_Shades

Average difference 12 points a week vs one trade saved, right now I'd save the trade.

Is it worth trading Kerridge this week if my forward line looks like this:
F: Deledio, Martin, Montagna, Hall, Wells, Kerridge (Petracca, Menadue)

I only have 7 trades and 59k in the bank. I could bring in Franklin at 440k or wait for Zorko or Merrett next week after downgrading Menadue?

All other lines are fully premium with Collins at D7 and Libba M8 with Trengove, Phillips and Jansen on the bench.

Dan
Guest
Dan

Wait a week and flick Menadue for Zorko

50_Shades
Guest
50_Shades

Yep, wait a week. I agree Zorko, but keep an eye out for Zerrett, he's been v.good this year and if you think he can keep going, he's a viable alternative.

@wheels_1987

@wheels_1987

Zorko the Magnificent

Adam

Who's the better option out of S Docherty and Z Williams.

Current backline premiums are Shaw, Boyd, Simpson, Laird, Bartel.

Pinidu
Guest
Pinidu

Docherty

Leeds17
Guest
Leeds17

Docherty clearing on exposed form, that being said GWS have a soft draw from here and Carlton pretty tough.

Pinidu
Guest
Pinidu

The draw is an interesting topic when discussing defenders. Sometimes the harder the draw, the more possessions defenders will get due to the ball being down there more often.

Southern S
Guest
Southern S

Also the draw can have zero impact on a defender's scoring, especially Simpson and Docherty who have scored well all year in wins and losses.

50_Shades
Guest
50_Shades

Draw schmaw, trying to predict players scores based on your view of the quality of the opposition is frought with danger.

What about the weather, how many hours sleep they had, did they bring their lucky undies…

Moustachio
Guest
Moustachio

Certain teams bleed SC points to the opposition in certain positions tho. Foolish to ignore if one player is playing a bunch of such teams, while another is playing teams that are the opposite.

Southern S

People give the draw too much credit for scoring though, anything can happen.

Rick

Hannerz or Neale??
Already have parker

Dan

Both. Coin toss both will be in top 4 to 6 premos by end of the year. Hanners with lower price would be my option

Southern S

If you need one right now Rance.

If you can wait for a couple of rounds to see how things pan out maybe McVeigh or JJ.

Rance for mine

50_Shades

50_Shades

Rance (geez I feel for him, busts his nuts every week and for what!) but agree with Southern if you can watch a week or two, the others might make the decision harder.

Leeds17
Guest
Leeds17

Pendles or Neale? (Assuming I can get 10pts per game elsewhere with money saved)

50_Shades
Guest
50_Shades

Pendles for mine, but not sure I can justify it. Neales been great this year… But still Pendles.

Hopper or Petracca out for a non-playing rookie to loophole with?

Hopper out means that Petracca is on field this week but I am limited in who I get in next week
Petracca out means that I have to play Phillips on field this week but I can get any forward next week

Thoughts community??

ToneStar

ToneStar

Get a cheap Ess mid/forward player. They have a lot of Sunday games coming up and perfect loop hole player for VC and swing player… I'm looking at getting one in next few weeks…

Hopper or Petracca out?

Liam
Guest
Liam

Hopper easily, petracca is still playing.

Tommo09

Tommo09

Even though that limits who I can get next week?
Also, Petracca may lose cash while Hopper will not

Tommo09
Guest
Tommo09

I was thinking Petracca

Liam

Liam

But could be limiting point scoring with having to play Phillips. Depends how much it effects your choices next week.

@wheels_1987

Hopper

the injuries will come. we all need cover

i think its the worst idea to trade out petracca, he will be needed

Clarky99
Guest
Clarky99

Who to VC out of Hannebery and Danger?
Who to C out of Ablett and Pendles?

Dasha
Guest
Dasha

danger because of higher ceiling and pendles because ablett could cop a tag from robinson

Pinidu

We expecting Coniglio to tag Treloar?

Southern S

Probably

Moustachio

Sidebum has been copping it lately. The Pendles tag is rarely effective, I would tag Treloar > Sidebu, > Pendles if I was opp coach.

Danger & Pendles

Hawks

Ward

50_Shades

50_Shades

Yeah, probably Ward, but I bought Gray at almost $600k, so I'm probably a little scarred. He'll be right though.

Southern S
Guest
Southern S

Gray, I reckon he'll come good.

I like the Melbourne and crows games at Adelaide rounds 21 and 22, then GCS at metricon in round 23. Has some tough games before that of course.

GWS has a good draw but if looking at finals scoring I'd pick Gray.

Zorko & Franklin

Redgumwon
Guest
Redgumwon

I've had Mitch Robinson all year. Started slow and was scoring really well until the KO against the tigers early in the game. Should be back this week after the week off for the bye. He's a great POD priced at only $447,200 and DDP mid/fwd

50_Shades
Guest
50_Shades

Zorko and Zerrett (though without Zaha this week, Zerrett might cop more attention than he can handle).

SCaddict

SCaddict

I appreciate the shoutout lads. Only two more sleeps until the next play at home CoachKings fixture … can't wait! Btw Crouching was right first up that the Supercoach GF is back to Rd23 this season after being Rd22 last year. As Jock mentioned Superfooty keeps switching things up so it's hard to keep track but it's important to note you'll need to go the full distance if you want to take home league silverware this season. So hang on to those trades if league supremacy is of interest as it's 8 long weeks to go.

How can you not be convinced about Zorko, Jock? Has only had two scores sub-100 for the year and they were a 97 and 86. Will finish as a top six forward if not THE top forward and you don't want him in your team?

Lachy
Guest
Lachy

Some say he's busy with his personal life (recent child) but he's going to be averaging 100+ regardless.

Southern, it's amazing what parents can do in zombie state. He may just play like a man possessed. Let's face it, it's a day outta the house… I reckon he'll be on fire!!!

But I'm going to wait one more week before pulling the trigger, just in case.

Great call on Curnow guys – huge POD (0.5% ownership) but can he keep it going?
Another amazing stat – he's the 6th highest averaging MID in the last 5 rounds – staggering!
Better than Lewis, JPK, Bont, Neale, Titch, Hanners over the last 5 rounds!!!!

Ben
Guest
Ben

Currently ranked just outside top 3000 with 6 trades left. 1 midfielder off full premo across all lines. Can make two trades (one up, one down) in order to get Hannebery, or just the one trade and get Shiel.
Thoughts???

poloko48
Guest
poloko48

I'd prefer Hanners, but in your position prob go with Shiel, gives you one extra trade to play with as injury cover.
In saying that I reckon Shiel's been oversold slightly, gun player no doubt but not quite there as solid mid premo just yet.
Averages about the same as Sammy Mitchell who I don't think we'd class as a top 8 mid this year.
But hey, I've only got 2 trades left so maybe don't listen to me lol!!

Ben
Guest
Ben

Ideally i don't want to make two trades. I've actually changed my thinking and gone to Coniglio with 6k in the bank.
Only games he has scored below 100 has been against Geelong, Adelaide and Sydney…GWS do not play any of those teams again this year.
He could be the POD that gets me inside the top 1000.

Southern S
Guest
Southern S

Like it, think outside the box he's been great this year. Only 1.7% ownership is amazing.

Just a gut feeling probably, I never ended up locking him in my forward either, picked dusty, lids and montagna ahead of him.

He's certainly been serviceable, but it's understandable the long tooth had people not so sure. I bought him in about 4 weeks ago and I'm happy enough hat he'll be a keeper.

A very underrated option, is nearly a top 10 player by average. Would rather him than Shiel

Podcast Gold Jock.

Currently top 4% ranking. With 8 trades and &1k cash, is it worth trading Petraca & Cox to McVeigh & Silvagni? That Would take me to near full premo with Libba M8 and Rich D6. Not perfect but 6 trades for injury cover seems ok.

Keep Tom Mitchell or trade to Pendlebury?

Only have 5 trades and the trade would leave me with only 3. Ranked top 200 so getting pendelbury could be vital.

Everyone above you has Pendles, but none have the Titch (except for me, mwahaha). If Pendles gets injured or drops off due to Pies draw, and Titch goes on a purple patch, you can make up some ground

Community I have both Kerridge and Petracca atm, who to trade first? I'm already using one trade this week on Nicnat to Goldy/Martin.

50_Shades
Guest
50_Shades

Kerridge. Are you going Goldy or Martin? I'm in the same boat and 90% sure I'll go Martin. I'm just not sure Goldys ok and whilst he may get up every week, I'm thinking he's going to limp home…

Joe
Guest
Joe

Leaning towards Martin too. Pros and cons with both rucks but don't think Goldy will be 100% for the rest of the year, and hence might be rested in the later rounds if North's finals position is secure.

I know there are many people who havn't followed my SHARK MOVES this year. Deep down I know everyone is still cheering for me. But To celebrate the end of the bye rounds and for the final push for glory, I have yet another SHARK MOVE for people to jump on to.

I can't reveal it just yet, I still need to sleep on it another night just to make sure I'm happy with it.

This time it's for the serious players. Those going for outright. Top of their leagues. This will be the move the winner will make. Anyone in the top 100 going for gold will want this SHARK MOVE. This will separate the ultra elite players from the rest.

Is Ward worth trading in to fill my last midfield spot. What do you think community?

They've got a good run home, so he's not a bad choice. Might depend on who else you're missing though.

I've been thinking about these suggestions to sell high. I don't think this makes sense. In SC only game day performance determine price (whereas with investments, market sentiment, external and irrational factors can affect price), so if Dangers price is high, it's because he's kicking ass – Are you really willing to risk miss out on those potential points (which are proven over a long period of time) because that cash can help fund one or two other moves. Maybe at the start of the season, maybe (in the hope he'll drop in price), but now we're getting to the… Read more »

one of my pre season rules was to "pay the price". It is still valid.

@wheels_1987
Guest
@wheels_1987

the arguement was you could turn danger into 2 other premos, so in that situation it would be coaches struggling who really needed a shake up

i would assume most people who use this forum wouldnt have been in a position where they needed to trade out danger, but there are some young supercoachs out there who were far from full premo

in which case trading danger to S.Mitchell and L.Parker PLUS pocketing cash may not have been the worst thing in the world

last 2 trades where petracca to boak pod
davis to mitchell
thoughts please

Clarky99
Guest
Clarky99

I don't like the Boak pick. Only tonned up 4 times this season in which his highest score of 145 which was last week. Not consistent enough and not a big enough ceiling for a midfielder. Last week was only a one off, don't chase points.

Danners
Guest
Danners

The entire Port midfield (other than Gray) hasn't fired this season and it seems like it will continue. If you are low on cash, Viney and Sidebum are good options

Tommo09
Guest
Tommo09

Which fwd should I get next week?
I have Martin, Wells, Riewoldt, Franklin, Hall, Petracca (Barlow, Phillips)

If I trade Petracca out this week I can get anyone next week, but I have to play Phillips this week
If I trade Hopper out this week I am limited to around $480 000 depending on prices going up and down

Who to get and is it worth going Petracca even though it might cost me 20-30 points this week? I think if I can get anyone the player say Zorko could get 15 more ppg so it makes up for it.
Thoughts???

Clarky99
Guest
Clarky99

Why don't you trade Hopper and keep Tracca as Backup?
For around 480k, you can get Joey Montagna ($484k), Josh J Kennedy ($471k), Gunston $483k) or even Toby Greene who has a great run home in which he tends to cash in. ($448k)

Tommo09
Guest
Tommo09

Because I don't have Zorko and I feel like I need him or Merret or Deledio
I think I will trade Petracca and risk the points

I am already going Libba to Neale next week

Clarky99
Guest
Clarky99

Fair enough, you need at least one of those. If i were you, i probably wouldn't go Lids as he has said himself he isn' playing in the guts much anymore. Go Zorko, but Merrett is also a very good pick, although DE is a big issue with him.

Tommo09
Guest
Tommo09

Done Petracca down to Long from Essendon because Essendon have lots of Sunday games I am told
Next week, Hopper out, Phillips to mids and Zorko in
This also opens up my mid/fwd swing

Hi Community, love your work as always. Pretty happy with my team just after some reassurance. 8 trades with 184k left

Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Laird, Bartel, Tippa (Collins, Tucker)
Danger, Pendles, Ablett, Shiel, Priddis, Gray, Mitchell, Libba (Stewart, Trengove, Phillips)
Gawn, Goldy (Grimley)
Martin, Lids, Merrett, Montagna, Hall, Wells (Petracca, Howard)

I've got two options this week. Really want both Boyd and Hannebury/Neale but fall short by 20k

1) Tippa out for Boyd. Libba out for Ward/Parker/Treloar

2) Tippa out for JJ/Pittard. Libba out for Neale/Hannebury

Feedback would be much appreciated

Thanks guys!

Great work Jock and crew! Seems like this year the tagger/run with player has averaged pretty well. Curnow, Titch, Coniglio, Gibbs, Barlow and there are probably a few others doing well. One that I think people are overlooking is Coniglio. Is the 9th best midfielder by average and has the easier run home on playing 2 top 8 sides. Owned by only 1.7% of teams…

I N Pieman
Guest
I N Pieman

Super player. If I have a mid injury he's high in considerations. Your right about the GWS run home. Might not lose another. I also like the look of the Dogs run home which is why i'll keep Libba a little longer

Cliffy
Guest
Cliffy

Love the podcast and love that the byes are over!

Simple question, I have 6 trades coming out of byes, compared to everyone else, is this still a reasonable number to cover off the inevitable late round rests, injuries, etc in the lead up to byes?

My team is almost full premo (just Tippa left at D6 for me as weakest area in the team), and I have alright bench cover across all lines.

Kev
Guest
Kev

Bit on the low side I think. Tippa needs to go as he's tiring and not someone you can get away with at D6.

Cliffy

Grahame Lebroy
Guest
Grahame Lebroy

I reckon you will come up short. But if your like me then its SC tradition to run out of trades before the year is out. But it comes down to if your lucky to have premo's who don't cop injuries towards the end of the year

I N Pieman
Guest
I N Pieman

Think we are all guilty of that Grahame. I don't think I've ever had a trade left in the final round. Whilst it seem like we have some now they don't last long when the inevitable carnage strikes.

Grahame Lebroy
Guest
Grahame Lebroy

How many will you have left when you hit full premo Pieman? I will hit full premo this week with only 5 left. bout 3 – 4 trades short i reckon

I N Pieman
Guest
I N Pieman

I will upgrade Weitering to most likely JJ this week. Makes me "technically" full premo. But I still have Rich Libba & Hall. Will leave 7 trades after trading Weit but also have kerridge covering 2 lines as a spare. Although I haven't decided what to do with him yet. If I was to upgrade the 3 lightweight premos I'd have none left. So I'm stuck with them for the time being.

Grahame Lebroy
Guest
Grahame Lebroy

I think Libba and Hall are ok, but Rich is a little thin. I reckon having good back up through bench or swing sets will be very valuable towards the end of the year, Kerridge might be handy cover for you

I N Pieman
Guest
I N Pieman

Rich is on life support believe me. If it gets to the point that it definitely won't cost me a donut then I'll pull the plug. Oh boy will it be joyous!

Moosehead
Guest
Moosehead

Liba to Neale as I have the other main midfielders? My concern is will Neale continue on his merry way in a poor team and that is why I am not keen on Merrett even though I lack a mid-fwd swing. Thoughts.

I N Pieman
Guest
I N Pieman

It's a luxury upgrade Moosey to go to Neale. I've considered it. If you got more than 8 trades & your full premo go for it. Best to complete your swingsets with rookies. Merrett only has a place in the Fwd line

Moosehead
Guest
Moosehead

Yes, fair enough. I will be looking for a rookie swing set in the next couple of weeks.

Hello Community! Great posts and advice.
I am a little stuck, going for cash league rather than rank.
Have 6 trades and 350k currently.
Team looks like below. What do you think I should do?

B: Docherty Rance Shaw Bartel Laird Rich (Collins Tucker)
M: Danger Ablett Parker Priddis R Gray Libba Wines Kerridge (T Phillips Mathieson Trengrove)
R: Gawn Goldy (Grimley)
F: Martin Montagna Hall Barlow Dahlhaus Zorko (Cox Petracca)

Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

I N Pieman

Kerridge to Pendles. Considering your playing for league hang onto Dahlhaus as your low on trades

MadTiger
Guest
MadTiger

Midfifield & Fwds needs upgrading. Move out Kerridge & Dalhaus, then Petraca/Wines. Look at Pendles, Hannaberry, Coniglio, Sloane. In forwards, consider Deledio, Franklin, JJK.

manuello1
Guest
manuello1

I was hoping to keep Barlow and Dalhaus as I brought them in as keepers and wanted to save the trade but it all depends on how long they will be out for.

It also means I have to keep Libba and/or Wines potentially.

But thanks for the tip.

Also considered Ward and Neale.

What do you think of Merrett in fwd?

MadTiger

Merrett is a good fwd option too. Some risk he may drop in scores as the season goes on but a very solid option.

I have been waiting the entire bye period to trade NicNat to Goldy, and as soon as SC opened I did this trade. As the week has progressed, I am really considering Stef Martin instead, especially with the finals draw. Goldy carrying that injury, still another game against Bulldogs(in SC finals)…. Team does feel better with Goldy in it though.

Remaining Games:
Stef Martin: Gold Coast, GWS, Essendon, Port Adelaide, Adelaide, Carlton, Geelong, St Kilda.
Todd Goldstein: West Coast, Port Adelaide, Collingwood, St Kilda, Western Bulldogs, Hawthorn, Sydney, GWS.

Southern S
Guest

I think Goldy can score just fine against those teams listed.

Greetings Community. I need to trade out AMT and Kerridge but don't have enough cash to do a double upgrade unless I trade Barlow or Wells and keep Kerridge for another week. I don't want to trade Barlow or Wells but don't see I have much option. Proposed trades:
1)Barlow to R Gray and AMT to Franklin or
2) Barlow to R Gray and AMT to Greene

Would appreciate any thoughts/alternative ideas.

Another option is Barlow to Greene and AMT to Deledio.
