4 trades left, worth going Parsons to Young/Simpson and Newman to Hurley? Banks me 120k which means I'll only need one trade to upgrade Greenwood to Greene/Heeney in the coming weeks. Cheers community.

    SC_Kev7 · 18/07/2017 at 17:18

    Probably not. 1 extra trade to cover 6 weeks is pushing it, especially with the way this season has played out. That said, if you need a final push to make the 8 in your league/s you may as well

    Sampson · 19/07/2017 at 22:26

    I am thinking of doing EXACTLY the same trades leaving me with 5 trades left.

Richard · 18/07/2017 at 16:09

Talking Footy,Footy Classifieds worn out and stale .That young McClure gives me the shits.What i wanna see is the Jock Reynolds Footy Panel in 2018 on a Monday night CH 7 or 9 or whoever.Imagine watching Jock,Higgo,Crouching,Carlos,Lekdog,Patch and the Baron ripping into the round that was it would be fantastic viewing.NITV have got the best preview show with fantastic guests.Jocks Footy Panel
would be the best review show.

    INPieman · 18/07/2017 at 17:36

    And Crouching taking over from Rebecca Madden on Ninja Warrior. That woman gives me the shits. Crouching handing over a rum can as they get out of the pool would be gold

    Patch · 19/07/2017 at 00:08

    He'll hate me saying this, but they actually asked Jock to run The Front Bar at the start of the year. He turned them down so his good mate Mick Molloy could get his big break on telly. He's a bloody good bloke that Jock

Tommo09 · 18/07/2017 at 16:19

Who to trade Pendles to?
Have 130k but also need to upgrade Greenwood to Buddy next week
4 trades left
Midfield: Danger, Titch, JPK, Bont, Fyfe, Pendles, Selwood, Rocky (Witherden, Bolton, Cousins)

    Pitch 72 · 18/07/2017 at 16:42

    Young Zachary Merrett..

      Tommo09 · 18/07/2017 at 16:48

      That will mean I am 65k short for Buddy next week unless Greenwood and Buddy get 60k closer this round which is very unlikely

        Ja191 · 18/07/2017 at 17:11

        wait to see how long he's out for. any longer then 2 weeks trade him out if not replace him with witherden.

    jez_m · 18/07/2017 at 17:46

    Hannebery? Wines?

    Derek · 18/07/2017 at 18:07

    What about Sidebum. He must get more midfield with Pendles out

      Tommo09 · 18/07/2017 at 19:06

      Is it worth doing an extra downgrade (Ryan, Bolton) to have enough to get an uber premium?

Bhargs · 18/07/2017 at 16:33

DEF: Doch, Laird, Shaw, J.Lloyd, J Martin, Witherden (Ryan, Perryman)
Mid: Danger, Titchell, Bont, Oliver, Kennedy, Jelwood, Fyfe, Pendles (Hibberd (NM), C Brown, Atley)
Ruck: Martin, Witts (Strnadica)
Forward: Macrae, Yeo, Buddy, Dahlhaus, Westhoff, Nank (Schoen, McInnes)

7 trades left, 166k in the bank.

I'm thinking J Martin for Hurley and Pendles for T.Adams.

THOUGHTS??

    Jake.B · 18/07/2017 at 19:54

    I like it

    Tyruddanaut · 18/07/2017 at 20:28

    Great! And the DPP provides the flexibility to get in any Premo you want except Ruck

swannation · 18/07/2017 at 16:45

DEF: Doch, Laird, Adams, J.Lloyd, Simmo, Rance (Scharenberg, Nielson)
Mid: Danger, Dusty, Bont, Zerrett, Hanners, Treloar, selwood, Neale (Berry, Witherden, Cousins)
Ruck: GAwn, Grundy (Strnadica)
Forward: Macrae, Yeo, Buddy, Dahlhaus, Greene, Nank (Parsons, Heeney)

Over the next few weeks, baring injury. i want to bring in 2 of these 3 Heeney, Hurley, Titch
I have 4 trades left and itll cost 3 to bring in two of them.

Im leaning towards Hurley and Heeney?

    SC_Kev7 · 18/07/2017 at 17:25

    Like the Heeney choice. Dahl and Yeo are in a bit of rut at the moment. If you can get him in with one trade I'd leave the other two and take 3 trades in for the finals.

FiL · 18/07/2017 at 16:50

Hi all, pretty happy with my team and have cover on all lines, but Pendles is likely done for the year. Time for a luxury trade! Suggest your best PODs for Pendles. Or should I go for a Dusty/Zerrett/who else?? Can be onfield or M9, I can afford anything up to $590,000.

Back: Docherty, Laird, Adams, Lloyd, Howe, Shaw (Touhy, McNiece)
Mid: Danger, T Mitchell, Murphy, Oliver, M Crouch, Hannebery, Fyfe, J Selwood (Pendles*, Witherden, C Brown)
Rucks: Goldstein, Gawn (Strnadica)
Fwd: Yeo, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Ryder, Nankervis, Wingard (Higgins, Eddy)

    rory · 18/07/2017 at 17:23

    a good POD might be blakely, chech out his recent form, but a safe optiion is zerret, the kid is a bloody gun

      leedy · 19/07/2017 at 00:22

      As a Freo supporter I am big on Blakely. 21 and playing the kind of footy Mundy was back in 2010-11. Looks as though Suban will remain tagging leaving Blakely to roam off half back, if he is not surfing that is :). I have taken the punt. Great POD.

    SC_Kev7 · 18/07/2017 at 17:36

    I like Zerrett or Neale, FiL. More POD's than Dusty

    GloryDays90 · 18/07/2017 at 19:21

    Blakely for a POD. Or Neale and Zerrett if you dont want to take the risk. Id hold a bit of cash if i were you though. Goldy may get dropped for Preuss at some stage.

    Jake.B · 18/07/2017 at 19:56

    Insane with your bench covers, Higgins, touhy, pendles. You've done well

      FiL · 18/07/2017 at 20:28

      Thanks! Lucky year. Started all the mid pricers I could basically. Oliver, Murphy, Titch, Crouch, Fyfe all below premo value.
      Ryder, Sandi, Witts, Nank, Wingard, WHE all cheap in the ruck and forward lines.

      But mainly I managed to get good rookies for all my bad picks like Jaeger, D Swallow, Kade K, Mills. Other people traded out non playing rookies to get the rookies they needed. I traded out mid pricers and made heaps of cash.

      Amid all the bad picks I had some terrible scores. But I picked off almost all my premos cheap and built the team above. Sitting at only 2000th overall but in a good place ahead of league finals.

    Derek · 18/07/2017 at 21:51

    I think you need Macrea.

    My POD is Sidebum, will benefit most with Pendles out

      Northerner · 19/07/2017 at 06:15

      Like that thinking

    Patch · 19/07/2017 at 00:15

    Zerrett only sitting at 12% ownership leans me towards him – although with whispers he may only miss one or two, you could hold him, have him as a POD on the way home and upgrade Nan's Crevice into a premo forward like Macrae, Heeney, Tex Walker if you're feeling dicey, or if you're feeling crazy, General Patton from GWS. Something to mull over.

    Also your team is absolutely insane and I want it

      FiL · 19/07/2017 at 16:32

      Thanks haha you can have my rank as well — only around the 1500 mark.

      Seems good having bench 'premos' but last week I couldn't really loophole any of them. Very frustrating. This week I should be able to. Need Port to play some Sunday games so I can use Eddy!

      I've explained how I got such good bench coverage above if you're interested.

Dasha · 18/07/2017 at 16:52

Newman to hurley? Leaves me with 5 trades left and 1 more premium upgrade to be made in the next 1-2 weeks

Riot act · 18/07/2017 at 16:54

Gday community, after some advice!
I've got 6 trades left and $125k in the kitty and am looking at trading Newman. Considering Hurley or Adams. I don't like sideways trading but I've just about had enough of rockliff. Is rockliff to Selwood worth it? Cheers!!

    rory · 18/07/2017 at 17:22

    rocky to selwood and newman to hurley if you want constensy but youll have to pay abit more than fo the 50 k cheaper adams

Josh J P Kennedy · 18/07/2017 at 17:06

Who should we trade out first? Shaw or Newman?

    redherringfc · 18/07/2017 at 17:32

    Newman. For me Shaw is just doing enough to hold.

    Derek · 18/07/2017 at 18:09

    McVeigh has taken Newman role.

    Newman might be lucky to hold his spot in team

      Whatyasmokin · 18/07/2017 at 21:45

      If that's the case would be the perfect time to go Newman to Adams or Laird.

Graham Harris · 18/07/2017 at 17:18

What to do with Rockliff?

    redherringfc · 18/07/2017 at 17:34

    I'm holding and hoping. but in the meantime loopholing with Scooter, if possible and he ever comes back.

rory · 18/07/2017 at 17:21

who do i swap pendles and sloane for, maybe neale or connor blakely as a pod as he has hit some greta form over last 8 weeks

Wightyswarriors · 18/07/2017 at 17:28

What a magnificent podcast…the danger trade had crossed my mind

    INPieman · 18/07/2017 at 19:43

    It's round 20. First week of finals. Your playing your mate in an elimination final. You've traded Danger. Your mate puts the VC on Danger on Friday night at Skilled Stadium. Over the next 3 hours you age 20 years & end up diagnosed with Tourette's syndrome unable to say anything other than "WTF was I thinking"

    Pitch 72 · 18/07/2017 at 20:59

    Yeah, that would be a ridiculous trade, just drama for the podcast me thinks.

      Derek · 18/07/2017 at 21:42

      Sounds like a Shake n bake fake move

    Shake n bake · 19/07/2017 at 09:43

    If you have about 8 trades left do it! I traded Pendals to Ebert after rd 12 has worked out well! I have 8 trades left and if Danger dont play he could become Beams. I have 8 trades left. Perryman would then be Danger the following week.

      Dave · 20/07/2017 at 09:30

      How many trades do you have left?

DacZawson · 18/07/2017 at 17:50

If Pendles ends up being out for more than 2 weeks, who does everyone think would be best?
Fyfe, Dusty, Neale or Merrett?
Leaning towards not getting Dusty as a point of difference in finals and hope he has one or two down weeks.

    bUCKET__ · 18/07/2017 at 20:40

    how about Ablett as a POD? injury risk but 5-round avg of 130

      Derek · 18/07/2017 at 21:41

      injury risk. I got him a few weeks ago. Owned him for 4 weeks and got two weeks out of him. Happily traded him to Doc a couple of weeks ago

        NoLanguage · 19/07/2017 at 02:31

        Why would you trade him after two scores, he duly put up a 160? Crazy

Stirlsy · 18/07/2017 at 17:51

Thursday night could be KAOS night

    Boner Contention · 18/07/2017 at 19:07

    thank you Maxwell Smart

Choppers · 18/07/2017 at 18:22

I also have Pendles along with Danger,Tich, JPK,Neale,J Selwood, Parker and Treloar with Witherden,Bolton,Mountford on the bench.

I was thinking of trading Pendles to Wingard, with Macrae going to the mid, leaving Yeo,Wingard,Dahlhaus,Buddy,Nank and Greene up front with Greenwood and Parsons on the pine.

My 2nd option was to trade in Fyfe for Pendles but Fyfe already has 39.8% ownership, while Wingard is at 4.3%.

Is it a mistake to move Macrae into the mids.

Would welcome any advice.

    DacZawson · 18/07/2017 at 18:54

    Regardless of positioning Fyfe should average more than Wingard for the rest of the season and is therefore the better option

      Choppers · 18/07/2017 at 19:13

      Thanks. Greatly appreciated

jonhhy mcphee · 18/07/2017 at 18:27

anyone backling blakely to continue his recent form

    Boner Contention · 18/07/2017 at 19:02

    yep and K.Jack

    SC_Kev7 · 18/07/2017 at 19:08

    Wouldn't shock me… buuuuuuuut Ross does use him for tagging roles. Prefer Neale at a similar price

    GloryDays90 · 18/07/2017 at 19:18

    Yep. Ross hasnt been using him as a tagger for over a month. Swings between the middle and half back. Im putting him in for Pendles for a POD

Steeeve · 18/07/2017 at 18:32

If you wanna trade out Danger good luck to you. I'll just keep the VC on him and sleep well.

Thomas · 18/07/2017 at 18:33

Geoff Walsh said today that Pendles could only miss this week depending on level of comfort. Would that mean we should hold him?

    Boner Contention · 18/07/2017 at 19:34

    Oh well then…lol..it must be right..club officials don't spin the reality…booohahaha

    Jake.B · 18/07/2017 at 19:59

    It would be a week if it was a fracture l think but it's not

    finnigin · 18/07/2017 at 20:35

    milane played with a broken thumb, not much on the line for pendles but if he has a pain barrier should be back in a week if the mrs lets him

    wombatsfc · 19/07/2017 at 12:09

    Don't know how he hurt his finger, he hasn't pulled it out of his ar$e all year

Jem · 18/07/2017 at 18:35

Options? 8 Trades – 230k
Adams, Shaw, Hibberd (melb), Doch, Newman, Tuohy (Hibberd – Nth, Ryan)
Pendles, Danger, JPK, Neale, Merrett, Fyfe, Bont, Pepper (Berry, Witherden, Cousins)
Gawn, Martin (Strnadica)
Dank, Nank, Macrae, Buddy, Lynch, Parsons (Eddy, Greenwood)

    SC_Kev7 · 18/07/2017 at 19:06

    Any moves that you're leaning towards, Jem? Jelwood should be high on your agenda this week

      Jem · 18/07/2017 at 21:17

      Tough one. Pendles for Jelwood, Tuohy for Jelwood via Witherden.
      Get a FWD in? Maybe hold Pendles? Not sure

    Boner Contention · 18/07/2017 at 19:15

    hibberd out…witho back..jwood in

    Jake.B · 18/07/2017 at 19:59

    Greenwood on field over Parsons surely?

Jock Rocks · 18/07/2017 at 20:22

Heyo community! – looking for some loving advice.

Team looks like this:

Back:
Doch-Laird-Adams-Howe-Hibberd-Newman

Mid:
Zorko-Bont-Murph-Oliver-Kennedy-Heppel-Fyfe-Pendles

Fwd:
Macrae-yeo-Dahlhaus-Nank-Heeney-Greenwood

Im looking at trading out Heppel for selwood and pendles for gary ablett and then the following week move out Newman and greenwood.

-Newman to Roberton +100k? or Newman-Hurley
-Gaz, Tom Mitch, Zach Mer, or another midfield option not listed?

Thanks heaps <3

    Tyruddanaut · 18/07/2017 at 21:37

    I'd go with Duncan right now. Bargain!

    Russty_ · 18/07/2017 at 23:02

    How you going this year without Dangerfield in your side?

    Mitchell or Zach Merrett.

    Jake.B · 19/07/2017 at 10:53

    Newman to Hurley is a must

Langy · 18/07/2017 at 21:01

Not so Dependalbury to Brad Ebert?? Thoughts community. My last trade and $4000 in bank Dooh!!

    Whatyasmokin · 18/07/2017 at 21:22

    Hold. Last trade.

Tyruddanaut · 18/07/2017 at 21:22

BREAKING NEWS! Pendles may be back as soon as round 19. Will you still trade or hold?

    JohndJames · 18/07/2017 at 21:38

    Holding for now,if not back for R20 will trade to Merrett.

    B-rian · 18/07/2017 at 21:47

    The broken finger give you a good excuse to trade him. Take it. He is finished anyway

    Russty_ · 18/07/2017 at 22:55

    Good excuse for me to finally get Titch in…so I'm doing it, Pendle's baby brain has screwed his scoring.

Derek · 18/07/2017 at 21:38

Pendles needs to have s chat with Daniel Chick.

    Browncow · 18/07/2017 at 23:30

    Nice work Derek. Was the finger a footy injury or a night out with the West Coast boys?

      Derek · 19/07/2017 at 10:21

      Did it when he was still a struggling Hawk

Disco Duckbill · 18/07/2017 at 22:05

Final upgrade: Ablett / Dusty / Zorko ?

    NoLanguage · 19/07/2017 at 02:33

    Gaz

What_Bear · 18/07/2017 at 23:28

Hi community,

Need some advice
Playing for league wins (need one this week), 6 trades and $115K

Doch, Laird, Adams, Shaw, Hibberd, Newman (Ryan, Witherden)
Danger, Titchell, Zorko, Neale, Bont, Fyfe, Treloar, Hannebery (Berry, White, Cousins)
Martin, Gawn (Stradica)
Yeo, Dahlhaus, Billings, Nank, Lynch, Heeney (Greenwood, Bolton)

Trade 1 – Hannebery to Jelwood (is this worth it)
Trade 2 – Lynch to Macrae or Newman to Hurley

These will be my last unforced changes

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Rocksta · 18/07/2017 at 23:45

    Newman to Hurley no brainer.

    The other 2 are a waste.

Timchief · 18/07/2017 at 23:31

My team is

Doc, laird, Adams, Simpson, Newman, shaw – Ryan, sharenberg
Danger, titch, treloar, Fyfe, mcrouch, jpk, jelwood, Bont – witherden, Bolton, cousins
Gawn, Witts
Ryder, lynch, Riewoldt, jjk, McRae, Dahlhaus – parsons, Pickett

6 trades left and $325k in the bank

Thinking parsons to t Greene.
Newman to Robertson.
Will leave about $100k and 4 trades.
Lynch to act as mid and forward cover by swinging dpp players.

Thoughts?

    Rocksta · 18/07/2017 at 23:50

    I like it.
    Go for it

    Jake.B · 19/07/2017 at 10:54

    Newman to Hurley.

Rocksta · 18/07/2017 at 23:49

Ok all,
I'm only playing for a cash league win and am currently on top and guaranteed Top 4 finish.
Thus, I don't have to trade until finals ( rd 20 ) but don't want to miss out on Jelwood.
Is Pendles going to be back Rd 20? If so, I won't trade him to Jelwood, but rather Greenwood.
I have 7 trades left.
Thoughts?

    Randomcliche · 19/07/2017 at 00:19

    Hopefully pendles kick to handball ratio goes up on return…whether it's rnd 1 of finals or rnd 2 you should be well positioned with fresh legs pendles.

    Rivo · 19/07/2017 at 08:13

    With 7 trades left, you have the luxury of getting the team balance right. If you can bench Pendles and trade Greenwood to JelwoodJelwood without losing the DPP swing, then yes, do it now.

Shannon · 19/07/2017 at 06:19

Ebert or Wines who should be the better selection for my final mid fielder.

    Rivo · 19/07/2017 at 08:09

    Wines for me Shannon. Just.

    Finnius123 · 19/07/2017 at 10:00

    I like ebert more – has been more consistent this year

Rivo · 19/07/2017 at 07:10

Trading Danger seems insane. Pendles out for 2-4 surely. Sloane doubtful and stinking it up.

Just 5 trades and $29k. "Pain in the guts"…

D: Doc, Simpson, Laird, Rance, Hibberd, Shaw (Ryan, Scharenberg);
M: Danger, M.Crouch, JPK, Treloar, Pendles, Hanners, Sloane, Greenwood (Witherden, Mountford, Cousins);
R: Gawn, Martin (Strnadica);
F: Ryder, Heeney, Franklin, Dahl, Nank, Lynch (GC) (Bolton, Eddy).

Option 1: Pendles to Jelwood;
Option 2: Pendles & Sloane to Jelwood & Bont;
Option 2: Nank to Jelwood, Greenwood to F6, lose dpp swing but hold Pendles.

Help please!

    Rivo · 19/07/2017 at 07:57

    Or go for the crazy Higgo "Biscuit" trade..

    Option 4: Danger & Ryan to Ablett & Adams. Swing Witherden to defence bench, Adams to cover Pendles.

SC17 · 19/07/2017 at 08:24

Don't want to trade Pendles seeing he is only out for 1-2 weeks.
My team is:

DEF: Doch Laird Simpson Rance Lloyd Hibberd (Ryan Witherden)
MID: Danger Zerrett Bont Oliver Pendles Adams JPK Fyfe (Bolton Cousins Freeman)
RUCK: Martin Nank (Strnadica)
FWD: Macrae Yeo Buddy Dahl Lynch Greenwood (Pickett Eddy)

I have 7 trades remaining and thinking of trading Greenwood to Heeny

    Derek · 19/07/2017 at 10:24

    What do you do if Danger and Pendles are both out this week

      SC17 · 19/07/2017 at 17:13

      Don't know might just go two down.

red5 · 19/07/2017 at 08:56

Looking to upgrade Parsons (FWD)
I've got $434K to spend.
Already have Yeo, Macrae, Dahl, Franklin & Nank
What about Nick Graham as a POD
MID – FWD $408,900, AVG 83

    Jake.B · 19/07/2017 at 10:56

    No.
    How many trades do you have and is Parsons in your field?

      red5 · 19/07/2017 at 21:23

      7 trades
      Parsons is on the bench

    SC_Kev7 · 19/07/2017 at 11:38

    Anyone under that price is going to be a speculative pick, red. Not convinced on Graham, may as well look at guys who can really tear defences apart like Tex (133, 117 past 2) or Daniher

    swannation · 19/07/2017 at 13:43

    Id go TEX, but would probably wait unless parsons is on field

rory · 19/07/2017 at 09:18

any dop midfield options

    Randomcliche2 · 19/07/2017 at 13:43

    At what price point? DPP with which position. The only viable DPP Mid ruck is blicavs…. Witherden and Perryman are both still cheap enough with good BE's to make you cash and look to be getting better each week, but there are other bubble rookies this week. Macrae and Adams are the picks of the fwd/def combo mid DPPs. But for mine, the best DPP is Sterndica…..but I really have no idea what you are asking…..

Ando · 19/07/2017 at 09:54

*Spark up

jimmy · 19/07/2017 at 10:40

So traded Sloane for Selly because the only thing good about him at the moment is his beautiful blonde hair. Given that Pendles came out of surgery with flying colours I cant help feel that I need to hold especially considering i brought him in last week and I only have 5 trades left. Who else is thinking of keeping him? Or in reality will he be average on his return and we should get rid of him anyway? Would love to hear the thoughts of the community.

    SmoothCriminals · 19/07/2017 at 12:32

    If it's just one week I'll hold. But one week can drag out to 2 or 3 so it's a risk.

    Quattter · 19/07/2017 at 14:35

    DEFINATELY keeping him. Probably miss one week. The debris about Pendles printed below is inane.

pieinghigh · 19/07/2017 at 10:44

I am thinking of doing the move.

Danger > Docherty ( T Adams to Mids)
Scooter > Z Merrett

Pendlebury is a hold for mine.

Leaves me with 2 trades and 96k remaining.

I can't see his output staying the same with a sore foot and if I need to I can always trade Shuey / Pendles + witherden/parsons to Danger

    Cogla13 · 19/07/2017 at 11:11

    Those last 2 trades will disappear before you have a chance to get Danger back in.

      SC_Kev7 · 19/07/2017 at 11:27

      Agree with Cogla. His output with a sore foot was 11 scoring shots, 12 marks (4 contested) and 15 score involvements.

      Applaud the thinking, but not having Danger when finals are just around the corner is suicide

    B-rian · 19/07/2017 at 14:14

    Not a good idea imo.

rory · 19/07/2017 at 11:13

what are some good POD midfield options

    SC_Kev7 · 19/07/2017 at 11:23

    Looking at the top 10 averaging midfielders, six of them are under 15% ownership
    Zerrett – 14.7
    Kelly – 12.6
    Gaz – 10.7
    Zorko – 10.3
    Neale – 8.7
    Gibbs – 2.2

    Like Zerrett, Kelly, Neale from that list

    redherringfc · 19/07/2017 at 16:16

    Gaz. I won't buy him yet as he is too likely to miss games, but I'm nervous when an opponent has him. I'll look to bring him in 1st week of finals, if i have any trades.

Alan A · 19/07/2017 at 11:17

Pentair legends team looks like
Backs , Docherty , Laird ,Adams , Roberton Touhy , Scharenberg
Mid ,Danger ,T Mitchell , Dusty , Murphy , Duncan , Cotch , Wines ,Witherden
Ruck , Ryder , Nankervis
Fwd , Mcrae , Yeo Dalhaus , Roughy , Hoskin Elliott , Heeeny

4 Trades left $390k in the bank
Think I want Nat Fyfe and then a Forward ??. Also look to Hurley to complete Backs,
Thoughts and suggestions please?

FEARTHEBEARD · 19/07/2017 at 11:18

So is Pendles got any firm news?

    Derek · 19/07/2017 at 12:32

    he had a pin and a small metal plate in his finger. are there any medicos in the room who can tell us how much that hurts?

      Rick Grimes · 19/07/2017 at 12:39

      He's done for the season, IMO. At best back might be able to play in 2-3 weeks. But by then Collingwood will be well and truly gone, so why risk him with nothing to play for. He gets an early holiday and they play the kids.

        Derek · 19/07/2017 at 12:51

        i need a few wins in my league to make the top 8. If danger is out as well as pendles, i'll have to call on Greenwood & berry/witherden to fill the gap. Not bad if opponents have danger and pendles as well.

          Rick Grimes · 19/07/2017 at 13:28

          There will be plenty with both. Things will get very interesting if Danger is out. VC and C decision making will be back on the table.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 19/07/2017 at 13:39

        Time with the new bub also

        Faceplant · 19/07/2017 at 14:32

        Crap.

        Russwith · 19/07/2017 at 14:33

        Rubbish.

    Lordyier · 19/07/2017 at 16:44

    He is a professional footballer and tough too. He will most likely play round 19 even though I don't have him!!!!

Simon · 19/07/2017 at 11:25

Gonna hold pendles now as i only have 4 trades left. Should i go:
Shaz – Jelwood which leaves me with 169k
Shaz – Zerrett which leaves me with 41k

    Randomcliche2 · 19/07/2017 at 13:36

    Jelwood is better than Zerrett for mine, even if they were even money.

      Kooka · 19/07/2017 at 16:40

      Simon is kidding himself and obviously hasn't got Zerrett. I have both and Zerrett is the one you should go with and I am sure others will agree.

        Very Sheepish · 19/07/2017 at 16:41

        Sorry I meant Random is kidding himself

Shake n bake · 19/07/2017 at 12:04

Danger 40-60 against.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 19/07/2017 at 12:19

    Don't think danger will play
    If Sunday game big chance but as Friday game 2 less days to recover puts him in highly unlikely category for mine.

      Shake n bake · 19/07/2017 at 12:32

      I will trade him if he doesn't get up! Then Perryman will become Danger after this rd!

        Rick Grimes · 19/07/2017 at 12:37

        Yep, if he's not playing i will pull a Higgo biscuit move.

          Shake n bake · 19/07/2017 at 13:36

          I did it with pendels to ebert after rd 12 worked out ok. But with danger will only be 1 week.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 19/07/2017 at 12:23

Could potentially have a danger, pendles, yeo bench
What is up with Yeo? What's the latest?
Traded parson poo at 9.01 on Sunday night to Jelwood so that is one covered, will wait and see on the other two.

    Defying_Madness · 19/07/2017 at 12:55

    Apparently Yeo is fine to play this week

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 19/07/2017 at 13:37

      Excellent one less to worry about

FootyPom · 19/07/2017 at 12:54

5 trades left, 53k in the bank and playing for leagues. Sitting locked in 8th so finals should be on the way.

Looking for thoughts on a couple of options:

A) OUT: pendles and nank , IN: Jelwood and Macrae. Damage limitation for potential selection carnage this week with Pendles out, Danger and Yeo under a cloud – 3 trades left and 15.7k in the kitty

B) OUT: Pendles – IN: Hurley (swinging Adams into the guts) 4 trades left and 7.2k in the kitty

Team:
Def: Laird, Adams, Roberton, Rance, Hibberd (demons), Newman (Witherden, Perryman)
Mid: Danger, Titch, Bont, Pendles, Hannerbery, Treloar, Fyfe, J. Lloyd (Mountford, Cousins, Atley)
Rk: Grundy, Goldy (Strnadica)
Fwd: Yeo, Buddy, Dahl, Nank, Lynch, Greene (Parsons, Greenwood)

Next week I downgrade a parsons or greenwood to get Doch into the backline for finals…leaving with 1 or 2 trades depending on the above.

    Derek · 19/07/2017 at 13:07

    if you think you are safe for the finals, i would hold this week. less than 3 trades left is way too little to head into the finals with.

      FootyPom · 19/07/2017 at 13:27

      It would leave me short, and as we've seen this week a few knocks to players and the team starts to struggle

    Faceplant · 19/07/2017 at 14:31

    Too few trades. You are in strife.

      FootyPom · 19/07/2017 at 16:29

      constructive. well done.

rory · 19/07/2017 at 12:56

pendles and sloane to blakely and another rookie and play witherden

Tommo · 19/07/2017 at 14:10

Who will score more this week out of Heppell, Treloar, Fyfe, Kelly and JPK

    swannation · 19/07/2017 at 14:53

    Kelly, Fyfe, Treloar, JPK……….Heppell

    Whatyasmokin · 19/07/2017 at 19:49

    Fyfe, JPK, Kelly, Treloar, Heppell.

Faceplant · 19/07/2017 at 14:30

Kelly, JPK, Treloar, Fyfe and a distant Heppell. Shame you haven't got Zerrett.

jockreynolds · 19/07/2017 at 15:46

Cheers Ando – bloody great to be back together mate!

oscarr · 19/07/2017 at 16:04

would you guys say Elwood is better than Ablett, zerrett, Neale and Oliver. can trade in whoever but Selwood is the cheapest

    Whatyasmokin · 19/07/2017 at 20:38

    Better value by far, yes.

FiL · 19/07/2017 at 16:34

Hope he can keep it up if you have him, I'm not sold…

Actually thinking I might wait a week and use my coverage. Then if Pendles still isn't playing I could take a massive punt on… Sloane or Rocky!!!

Mick · 19/07/2017 at 16:37

Rockliff to Jelwood?
Have 6 trades and 260k
Current team:
DEF: Doc, Laird, Roberton, Adams, Lloyd, Newman – Bench Melican and Ryan
MID: Dang, Merrett, Neale, Treloar, Bont, Murphy, Oliver, Rocky – Bench Witherden, Bolton, Mountford
RUC: Goldy, Gawn – Bench Strnadica
FWD: Yeo, Mccrae, Dahl, Ryder, Nank, Greenwood – Bench Ainsworth, Stewart
Definitely upgrading Ainsworth to either Lynch or JJK.
Is it stupid to offload Rocky for Selwood?

    Whatyasmokin · 19/07/2017 at 19:47

    Why not just trade Mountford to Selwood?

    Could trade Greenwood for a gun forward. You'll still have swingsets in ainsworth/Bolton.

    Could also destroy your Def/mid swing and trade Newman to Selwood for peanuts, using Witherden who is a gun and has rock solid js as your D6?

    You can always get Witherden back in the mid later if required.

      Mick · 19/07/2017 at 20:16

      Interesting. Cheers mate, worth some thought

        Whatyasmokin · 19/07/2017 at 20:38

        You have plenty of options there. Just go with your gut.

Joshua · 19/07/2017 at 18:08

Pendles-Jelwood still a go despite the optimistic messages by Collingwood officials?

    Whatyasmokin · 19/07/2017 at 19:38

    My biggest fear is that Collingwood have no finals hopes so will therefore not risk him unnecessarily. Thinking of just cutting my losses with him I can only cover two midfielders this week and Danger and Sloane are almost certain not to play.

    Quattter · 19/07/2017 at 22:33

    Hey guys. It's only a finger, not a leg!!!!!!!!

      Cogla13 · 20/07/2017 at 17:19

      How do you mark, tackle and handball with a dud hand? Collingwoods season will be over if they lose this week, why risk your best player?

    Russty_ · 20/07/2017 at 01:18

    He wasn't playing very well anyway…Selwood all day.

wightyswarriors · 19/07/2017 at 19:14

Sitting third in my league but must win this week against first, or miss the top 4…first scored one point more than me this week. I have pendles..he doesn't. D Swallow was going to be final upgrade this week. Five trades, $217k. Pendles/swallow to Neale/Cotchin for massive pods, or hold and hope. If I trade and still lose, may as well have held trades.

    ahmad rubas · 19/07/2017 at 19:39

    id hold

TigerNut · 19/07/2017 at 19:23

I'm seriously considering Higgo''s left field call to trade Danger. Danger to Ablett. Bolton to Wingard/Heeney. Leaving Wingard/Heeney, Greenwood (Mid) and Witherden (Def) all on the bench. as loophole options

    ahmad rubas · 19/07/2017 at 19:40

    how many trades left?

    Don't Blush Baby · 19/07/2017 at 19:47

    Yes, I thought about trading Danger for about 3 seconds,please see a post that INP Pieman put in earlier, don't do it tiger

    Whatyasmokin · 19/07/2017 at 20:29

    You shouldn't have to trade Danger to get Ablett. Only a fool would trade Danger out.

    You don't trade the best player in the league out due to minor injury, not worth it.

    TOPHAWK1 · 19/07/2017 at 21:22

    Madness. Absolute madness. Keep things in perspective Tigernut.

    Simmo · 19/07/2017 at 22:32

    Higgs talks a lot of crap sometimes. Like some Kane Cornes he just wants a headline. Gazza could breakdown for good? but I hope he doesn't.

Braydn · 19/07/2017 at 20:44

Trade out nank or billings for jselwood

    ahmad rubas · 19/07/2017 at 20:54

    keep nank if u can play him forward and use him as ruck cover

TOPHAWK1 · 19/07/2017 at 21:29

Dangerfield has arrived in Adelaide tonight.

Probably catching up with a few old mates tomorrow. No training, just a bit of R&R, and to rest his foot of course.

I reckon he will play, and not only will he play, but tear Adelaide a new one on Friday night!

    Quattter · 19/07/2017 at 22:29

    I hope you are right but I think you are wrong. Play onward for about 80 – 100 SC points so I won't be having as VC.,

    Cogla13 · 20/07/2017 at 17:14

    I think he's a good chance to play or he wouldn't have travelled. But last week was a freak show. He'll sit forward again but won't go big. I'm with Quattter, not going to VC danger this week. Hope it doesn't kill me.

      Dave · 20/07/2017 at 17:56

      Even a one legged half fit danger will score 110-120. Could pay off though

rory · 19/07/2017 at 21:32

ebert, blakely, neale or duncan
ebert has a 23 BE and is 477 k, blakley has 3 round average of 121 and a 0.5 ownership and is 540 k, neale has an average of 111and is down to 544 k and duncan has 1.5 ownership and will thrive without danger and is as well 544 k

    TOPHAWK1 · 19/07/2017 at 21:42

    Ebert if you want bang for your buck and a POD.

    Neale if you want pedigree, class, and prepared to pay the extra $60K.

    Forget the other two.

    Good luck mate!

BigM · 20/07/2017 at 14:10

My forward line is quite slim
Dahhause, Heeney, Yeo, Macrae, White, Greenwood, Steward, Parsons

Parsons is to go to help me paint the fence – down to Simpson

But, who else to remove to build up my forward – get rid of M White or J Stewart – in order to make way for maybe Wingard, Gray, Ryder or Franklin

Greenwood might have to stay as my F6 as only got 3 trades left

    Bells · 20/07/2017 at 16:58

    Might?? Greenwood is a def F6 for you.
    Ryder should give you ruck cover if you have a swing at the R3 position so you should go with him as your last upgrade. Whatever you need do to make that happen – do that.

Northernsoul74 · 20/07/2017 at 14:44

Hearing Goldstein likely to miss.

    Dave · 20/07/2017 at 17:39

    Dam

      Dave · 20/07/2017 at 17:50

      Yeah they are bringing in Larkey (ruck fwd), so either daw or goldy will go.. fingers crossed

        No one · 20/07/2017 at 19:56

        Damn, the dam wall may bust.

Slimer FC · 20/07/2017 at 14:45

Who is holding Rockliff and who is trading him out?

    Dave · 20/07/2017 at 17:35

    Playing like a unmotivated piece of $#/^. Always going for the player, not the ball. We have to keep him now, unless u have trades galore. Im looping him with good bench cover.

Bells · 20/07/2017 at 16:55

With only two trades left do I trade Scooter to Jelwood. or Pendles to Jelwood?
I'll have to keep the one I don't trade and prob loop with Witherden each week and take the bigger score.
If I trade Pendles at least I'll have 100k bank left if I have to use the last trade and bring in a replacement for a LTI.

    Cogla13 · 20/07/2017 at 17:11

    2 trades left. Bang Bang, dead grasshopper have big smile on his face. Good luck.

      Bells · 20/07/2017 at 19:03

      Pretty comfy with Scharenberg, Witherden and Greenwood as cover. Sure they might not get 130s but will get enough to keep me in the contest if called upon. Still in contention for finals.

      Just need to think on Pendles or Scooter. If Pendles comes back after 1 might be a good POD…..

Bells · 20/07/2017 at 19:14

GAJ may be the GOAT, but it's me who is the goat for bringing him in some 6 weeks ago. He's been like a fly-in miner. One week on, one week off.

Shizzer · 20/07/2017 at 22:34

Pendles and parsons to Hurley and j Thomas

Thoughts or just go Pendles to Hurley?

    Tibor · 21/07/2017 at 10:25

    Only do the second trade if you have plenty to burn. Based on the outs we see year after year through the supercoach finals rounds I reckon it's better to have six trades and be just short of premo than be full premo but only have three or four trades, Some will say four is enough going into sc finals but I don't buy that

      Shizzer · 21/07/2017 at 13:16

      Cheers I have 6 trades left if I don't do the second trade

Paul · 21/07/2017 at 08:39

Thoughts on Parsons to Durdin, Greenwood to Selwood – will then wait a week to get rid of Pendlebury, if he is out again then go to any mid under 600k.

Nugget · 21/07/2017 at 09:16

Should I trade in Yeo?
What's happening with him, will he reach the same numbers after having time off?
Can someone please give me 3 other fwd options?
Was thinking of buddy, not only will he go huge this week but his run home should be ok only problem I've been burnt before…lol
I've got Macrae, Heeney, Higgins, Dahl, Nank, Steele (Hannan, Hardwick)

    GloryDays90 · 21/07/2017 at 17:35

    You dont need to trade Yeo… he will be fine. He had one week off, not a month

Saundo · 21/07/2017 at 12:25

Roberton, Martin, Montagna or Williams for my last spot in defence?

Ball Holder · 21/07/2017 at 18:11

only someone as dumb as a muslim who believes the messanger of god, a 50 year old baby [email protected] pedophile named prophet mohamad would think danger will miss…. danger will play….. the same way the leader mohamad of islam married a 6 year old baby girl and molested her.. and the same way mohamad was a totally illiterate fool and uneducated mass murderer…. it is the same truth that danger will play…. LOL… f#cken brain dead mohamad wh0res…. they look up to Bachar Houli in Islam… he is Bachar– the wife Basher the same as all muslim men… did I mention danger will play… allah akblah-blah-blah… danger for 150+

Dan · 22/07/2017 at 12:15

Any good mid/fwd downgrade targets this week?

If I'm able to trade out J.Stewart I bank enough cash to trade Pendles to Dusty.

    Dan · 22/07/2017 at 12:16

    Also just thought I would mention, I have 8 trades left.
