Kane Lambert and Hunter Clark out > Heeney and Barry in. Got all other rookies. Good trades?

Crowboy94

Good trades

DacZawson

Fyfe into Danger for me this week but can't wait to watch my rucks, Goldy and Gawn, go head to head.
Their last game in 2016 down in Tassie was one of the most incredible games of footy I've seen, firstly because of the wind, but secondly for their ridiculous 170+ apiece Supercoach scoring. Let's hope that they can back it up.

redherringfc

Nice trade.

Won’t see too many people with the guts to pull that one.

redherringfc

sorry misread that, got your name muddled with the actual trade you’re doing (and my dyslexia).

I though you were called Fyfe and you were trading Zac Dawson to Danger.

I know it’s Danger, but it’s also Fyfe. Only way that trade pays off, is if Fyfe snaps a leg.

hedski

Think Dac is vcing Fyfe into Danger cap red..

Gibbs

Do I trade Langdon or hold?Would be my first trade used Would likely be to Murphy Via DPP! Or/ and do I trade Clark? Was leaning to holding him as got good mid rookies atm and I could trade him for Murphy via Finalyson dpp , that would lead me to having to field a Naughton/ Murphy? What do I do Lek?

DacZawson

I wouldn't be doing a trade that puts Naughton or Murphy on field. I feel like you should just hold unless you don't have Ryan or Fritsch.

Gibbs

and Thoughts on Lachie Fogarty?

haiku bob

Is it stupid to trade Fogarty for Ryan?
I already have Venables and Fritsch.
And which 2 of those 3 (Ryan, Venables and Fritsch) should be onfield?

Scouser

Not the worst trade Bob, fogarrt probably facing limited opportunities. As for on-field Fritsch for a steady 60 loophole for Ryan or go for glory and play him, will be up and down

Russty_

I did that this week Bob, no point having a stagnant rookie on the bench, unless you want them there on purpose.
Ryan will make you good cash, whereas Fogarty, if and or when he gets another game, won't make much with his scores.

nankthetank

Did you end up getting Ryan?

Matty

Who’s more of a must get out of Don Barry and Murphy??

DacZawson

Dom Barry

Derek

Barry looks a player.

Murphy not quite at AFL standard yet

Tyruddanaut

Why is it still a podcast? Wasnt it intended to be a video?

Tyruddanaut

You got me there…

Sc_Wow

Where are you ranked?

AlwynDavey

Should I trade hibberd to Simpson or hold? I have 29 trades and 50k, not making any other trades this week

DacZawson

Hold and reassess next week

TOPHAWK1

Agreed. Hibbo is not going anywhere. Will come good.

EggSandwich

Trade naughton this week or wait for O’Connor to be on the bubble next week?

DacZawson

Wait

Gsus

Naughton to Bonner? Is it worth burning the trade?
Additional info. Only interested in winning my cash league

redherringfc

I don’t think so.

Bonner’s about $100k more isn’t he? If I’m correct then they will max out at about the same profit. Some rookies come good after slow starts, Berry last year went backwards after 3 rounds and then was good, hopefully this is Naughton.

You will miss out on a few points early, but waste your trades and you will not will win your league.

Derek

Well said. Agree 100%.

Scouser

If just cash league then hold, he's already improving so just bang him on the bench, other rooks will come through so if he's still serving turds by rd 5 you should be able to trade him out

Help

Zorko to Dusty and Mills to Simpson?

Appreciate advice

Rob

๐Ÿ”

johnno2908

1 possible top 10 midfielder, and a potential breakout player, to a top 3 mid and a top 5 defender. Sounds pretty good to me.

Scouser

Great trades for mine

Paul

Do you think Mcevoy could be a good pod. Looking really good this year (in 1% of teams)???

Derek

He would be. However Ceglar is only 2 weeks away from playing. If the Hawks go with a 2 Ruck strategy, big boy is dead to us.

Dermin8r

Yes, as a Hawks member I am gutted that I couldn't fit Big Boy in my ruck, really needed him to be a Ruc/Fwd (as he was Hawthorn's best goal kicker last year) definitely a solid POD, IMO.

Derek

Will Ceglar come straight in?

Jim_bob321

First time this season Armitage has been named in the centre bounce due to Richardson's axing …… perhaps reverse the trade from Armo to Cogs???

Appreciate opinions community

GodMk11

Are you serious? You are terrible at supercoach and are the last person who should be offering advice

redherringfc

Me?

That’s what i think too. I’m just tying to bring everyone back down to my level.

I guess people don’t know what a Red Herring is.

And the FC stands for Fishing Club. (Although I think my mate Dave C, from last week might have had it as something entirely different)

silkyloveswomen

I traded ZGL to Jaiden Stephenson, this leaves me with 110k in the bank and 28 trades left. good move or nah.

Crowboy94

What rookie should I bring in for Clark?
I have all the main ones, was thinking Higgins but not sure.

Scouser

Wouldn't be trading any rooks in till they're on the bubble and named, if it all goes awry then it's one tough shit fest to get out of mate, take it from someone who's been there ๐Ÿ™

Crowboy94

Clark is about to lose money and has been dropped so I don't have much choice haha

patricmassey

Hibberd –> Simpson and Ainsworth –> Conigilio

Thoughts?

redherringfc

Who is Ainsworth?

I just looked him up. 91 in the 1st round, must have had you pretty happy.

Are you dumping him because of his 39 or is he injured/dropped?

What did you expect for 334k? It’s like Armitage and JOM, great value, but do we expect them to be long term keepers? I don’t, they hopefully get 80-100, make some cash and then get turned into a real premo.

Pretty sure your team will be better with the trades, but i won’t be surprised if late in the season you want to get Hibberd back and get rid of Coniglio. That equals 4 trades, when it could be 1 or 2.

Jack

is langdon worth trading out. If so, should it be to venables, waterman or english

Richard

ZGL reported to be out for 4 weeks im bringing in waterman has the best BE -60 odd of those 3

Richard

-56

Goose

Is it crazy to bring in Venables instead of Ryan to replace Langdon?
All my other rookies are sweet.
Think he could make more cash in 6-8 weeks time

redherringfc

Ryan got 38 in the 1st round.

I see your logic, but that 115 is going to push his price up over the next 3 weeks.

Tough call, but I say go with Venables and hope that last week was a one off from Ryan.

Derek

I’m going Ryan for quick cash.

Higgins will be on bubble in 2 weeks, won’t be many other rookies ready to cull.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Same.
Ryan to higgins in 2 weeks likely scenario.
Ryans price to climb like he does over a defender.

Derek

If he doesn’t have a good score this week or next, his BE in two weeks will be very high as the 115 drops out. Easy trade to Higgins then, where Venables and others will still have low BE in two weeks

Derek

When did O’Shea sneak back into the Carlton team?

Derek

That’s what thought. I’m certain I saw his name in the final teamI

Marty

And was best for the blues.

Tazbevo

Making two corrective trades. Only question is which rookie moves on to facilitate that maneuver! Andrew brayshaw or zac langdon. Zac out with hand injury makes some sense and may be out for four plus weeks but should go up nicely in value when he returns. Or… bray only likely to rise by about 28k and I'd pocket the 80k difference in their price as well. I have all other relevant rookies. The cash may be useful in a further trade next week with bringing dusty in a possible option. T kelly and holman on the field, other on field mids premos and would leave banfield and Barry on the bench probably with garlett subbed in from forward line to accommodate my two ins. Bray out or zac and why!

Richard

Tip Zac out wont be playing keep brayshaw is playing

TRIGGA_HAPPY

No SC related but a draft Q.

Who to play on ground?

Vlastuin or DBJ from port?
Who do we think will score more?
Leaning towards DBJ.

hedski

DBJ trig.

neil demons delight

Yeah DBJ after last week though Vlastuin was crucified by the umps

John

VC Fyfe or Cripps

Andrew

Both good options, can’t go wrong with Cripps Collingwood don’t tag

Dermin8r

yeah, I have Cripps as my V with a loophole option if he tears up Collingwood, otherwise, will anoint Titch or Dusty on Sunday.

Pom

Do I punt Dahlhouse?
McLean seems to be taking some of his points / doggies playing shocking.
Trade to Taranto or gamble on fisher? I have Heeney petracca Devon Smith, Billings, L ryan, Giles Langdon, Fritsch.
If I go to fisher I can shift the Bont into dusty. Already have Dangr and T Mitch.

Da Boysh

i think if you were going to do it i would be making sure I get Dusty out of it otherwise it isnt worth the risk

BlueBaggerJosh

Lek, thoughts on Sicily to Fisher and Naughton to Bonner? As a fellow Carlton supporter the little ๐ŸŸ excites me

Petrus

Def: Laird, Hibberd, McGovern, Finlayson, Deodee, Murray (Keefe, J Payne)
Mid: Danger, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Shuey, Conigs, T Kelly, Holman (Brayshaw, Banfield, Garlett)
R: Jacobs, Gawn (Loophole – King)
Fwd: Heeney, Billings, Greene, Sicily, Ryan, Waterman (Fritsch, Gilles-Langdon)

7.8k 30 trades left

Looking at a donut on Fwd's and Greene could be absent next week too. Tempted to go:

Greene to Fisher
J Payne to Bonner

Should I just field a donut this week?
Thoughts?

Post_MaSloane

Hmm, do I trade Duncan to Oliver? Probably won't but communitys thoughts?

Jam

Yes, or you chase cash and see who is on fire in 3 weeks time. Ellis yolmen at Adelaide could avg 90 for the next 3 weeks and make very good money. Unfortunately i dont have anyone underperforming to make a trade justifiable

Sc_Wow

Ellis yolman isn’t justifiable for anyone, using 2 trades on the hope of getting 90’s. Ridiculous

Greedy AFL

Why don't the AFL put names on back of jumpers like every single other team sport in the world?? my guess is it would take up valuable advertising space!

hedski

Yep, if only I knew who number 14 was for Carlton I'd make him my captain every week.
The bloke is amazing.

neil demons delight

ROD ASHMAN

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Hope its a good game "tonihgt"

TOPHAWK1

Sam Murray on field and lookin good…..

TOPHAWK1

YEP. It's official. Weitering is retarded.

belly button fluff

Agree. My team was so awesome good but had him in it. So sad. Like putting lemon in a perfectly good beer.

belly button fluff

Glad I turfed him already.

neil demons delight

are carlton the new easybeats Simpson is good but the other defenders are crapp

Big Blue 75

You try playing in that backline!

Sam Docherty is a massive blow and with Gibbs traded thats the 2 best kicks in the team gone, that takes time to replace. The field kicking is awful and not up to scratch and that is exposing the defenders bigtime.
Can you imagine if Curnow and Casboult had a decent MIDFIELD kicking to them?
Z.Fisher is one of very few who actually give a t0ss about tackling and chasing, too many soft and lazy players out there.

smote

Spot on BB 75
Its not friggin rocket science. Fit blokes who run hard both ways….my kingdom for a few of those in this team.
Plus tough contested manic pressure footy…..the stuff that got Bulldogs and Tigers players premiership medals.
Can handle the poor skill errors but cannot cop blokes not having a crack.

Russty_

I thought that spot was reserved for StKilda this year Neil ๐Ÿ™‚

neil demons delight

I need advice Russty I am playing the underdorks He has Murray so do I but on the pine WHO do I swap HIBBERD SHAW BONNER DOODEE or FINLAYSEN tough call thinking bonner what do you think

Russty_

Haha you want my advice on how to beat me?..lol..ok here goes mate, put your worst player on the field and best on the bench hehe

neil demons delight

KNEW YOU WOULD BITE// good luck

arz

Lek – do i trade bell to mclean (f5) or to cogz (m6)?

Big Blue 75

cogz (m6) for sure, made the move myself.

Big Blue 75

Z.Fisher was 263k with a BE of -48 before last nights game.
What is Z.Fisher's price after his 76?
Kid needs to bulk up but I was impressed, if only his teammates tackled and pressured like him, does not panic with the ball either.
Thanks

Rabbits16

hes a twig hey

Russty_

Hey Big Blue, yeah he's a skinny 19 yr old Kid but jeez I think he's gonna be a good player for a long time once he matures.
His projected score was 69 with a projected rise of $52.5k so with a 76 maybe around 55-58k? Cheers.

Daniel Z

I think his price rise will be closer to 40k, so end up just over 300k.

Russty_

If he's exceeded his projected score, why wouldn't the price rise be the same or a bit more than SC Gold has predicted it to be?
Why would it be less?

Rabbits16

read devon smith and hurley had scans during the week and may not play?

Rabbits16

serious rabbits? thats no good. hope they play

JEL

Take Garlett's 64, or put Ryan (WCE) on field?

INPieman

Take it

pod

I'm willing to gamble Garlett's 62 so I'm with Ryan as I think now he'll be more confident after last week. Keep in mind the young Cats defenders will be aware of him and could quite easily shut him down. Last week they struggled against the tall Hawks like Rough and Gunston who won the game for them.

AC27

Sicily to Bonner and Bont to Danger
Thoughts in this trade?

belly button fluff

I'm not so sure about bonner, one good score with no history. have to hold Sicily I think. Why not wait and see what danger does this week. If he is likely to go down in price, your worried about Bont going down too I guess but you haven't really given him much of a chance yet. Hmmm I dunno You need to look and see if you can find some other way of getting Danger in in two or three weeks first. Then maybe yes do it if you dont think you can.

pod

You aren't going to see Danger for less than $680k unless he has a couple of shizin games or is injured during a game. I'm predicting a massive score this week from him. Last week was a warm up for him, he's ready to rip the game apart as we know he can. That play last week when he stole the ball from Cyril was unbelievable, never seen anyone do that to Cyril. Get him in asap!

belly button fluff

That's true. But Should have got him last week now may as well wait one more week to see if he is going down a lot or a little.

Stupid Coach

Should I trade Townsend to Parfitt, Christensen or Ellis Yoleman or keep Townsend and trade ZGL to Venables (already have Fritsch, Gowers and Ryan).

VC.- Gawn or Laird.

Stupid Coach

Thanks SC_Sixty6 really appreciate the advice. Just trying to get someone at F3 that is a more consistent and better scorer than Townsend . Those that I have mentioned are averaging 90 and also about to go up in price which I can turn into a premium later. I don't have enough cash to turn him into a premium like Heeney.

Fono

JOM to Coniglio or save the trade?

Russty_

This would be the week to do it Fono if you want him, no point waiting.

Westy

Hey Lekdog,
How long have you been playing Supercoach, how many hours a week would you and the rest of the guys devote to the community and to your teams?
Really appreciate what you guys do.
Cheers.

SC_Sixty6

Hey Lek! Just a thought maybe a Q&A thread will be beneficial for the whole community with myself and Wow answering questions seeing as we are so respected here with no BS advice or sugar coating.

Tickets on myself

dont agree

AuroraBorealis?!

If you want to do your own Q&A start your own website.

Beezneez

Have to trade out Crouch. with only $25k and 30 trades. The options I am thinking of are:

1 Straight trade to Oliver.
2. I also have Sicily at F4 (covered by Garlett's 65). Was thinking Sicily to Taranto and Crouch to Martin – have Danger Tich, Kelly, Fyfe
and Cripps.
3. Crouch to Coniglio and Sicily to Taranto with $218K left.
4. Crouch to Coniglio and A Brayshaw (Freo) to Taranto leaving $14K – this would mean putting Taranto at m7 and Holman to the
bench. I had originally thought of doing this trade and substituting Garlett to have Taranto on field in the fwd line (replacing Sicily).
Unfortunately, I missed the deadline for this trade. This trade will mean I will keep Sicily.

All advice says to hold Sicily but I kinda like having Taranto. Could have another look and do the trade next week as both should have similar prices – although I hate sideways trading.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Russty_

Tough one Beez cause I think the best one to go for is the one that gets Martin in, but it could also backfire, (Sicily to Taranto).
Sicily although a hothead, could still average 100 if he can stop his brain from boiling during matches, Taranto, only played 12 games at 66 av, what if he goes back to that?..then you're stuck with a dud.

Beezneez

Thanks for the input Russty. I am now thinking of keeping Sicily. I could find another way of getting Martin as I'm only $23K short or saving a trade and going to Oliver or Coniglio for cash generation.. .

Shake_n_Bake_

Who to start? need to start 2 out of these 5 Kelly Holman Brayshaw Banfield Barry. Kelly will be 1 im thinking Brayshaw over Holman maybe for 2nd spot??

Russty_

Kelly and Holman for me, Holman has the runs on the board, Brayshaw doesn't yet.

Beezneez

Kelly and Holman.

Sc_Wow

There is no reason not to start Holman and Kelly, they have proven they can get points

belly button fluff

What he said. Two thumbs up!

Shake_n_Bake_

Just think Brayshaw and even Barry to go well. But Holman does have the runs on the board

Sc_Wow

Hope you didn’t go bray and Barry

neil demons delight

Full house KELLY / HOLMAN why brayshaw shake could be wrong though He is very good good luck with your choice mate

SC_Donkey

I'm confused, when people say "sideway" trading is no no.

Let say you have a premo that's underperforming, wouldn't it be better to swap that player with another premo who's performing well. And where else can you go, the player is already premo. You can't downgrade to a mid-pricer or a rookie.

I would understand if you have a mid-pricer that's underperforming, you'd want to trade that player to either a premo or a rookie for cash gen. A mid-pricer to another mid-pricer to me is more of a sideway.

I feel the word "sideway" are being too used and overrated.

Ken

Thats true but what if the so called premo dominates the first few weeks and is poor the back end..
Remember Montagna dominating a couple years back the first few weeks and then struggled, same with Bont

SC_Donkey

Then ideally you want to trade them to another premo that's performing and to me that's not sideway trading specially at the back end of the season. It's smart trading to get a better output for your team.

Russty_

Yeah agree Donk, this week especially before the underperformer loses cash…and as you said later in the season as some are losing form and others gaining it.
Sideways is just a word, you've gotta do what works for you.

SC_Donkey

I agree russty, 1st two rounds are corrective trades either premos or rookies imo. Not so much for mid-pricer, we all need accept the fact of what you paid for the mid-pricer is what you get. They smash it for one or two weeks and then have a big turds for a few games. Just have to hold on to those mid-price players until your rookies have fatten up and move them on to premo. I see so many people in here rage trading mid-price to another mid-price.

Russty_

I am guilty of exactly that this week..lol
Armitage to Ellis-Yoelman, reasoning is I'm hoping CEY will hit 400k by round 6 and Armo could stagnate and take much longer to make less money.
Also, I think the Saints will cop some severe hammerings early this season, and Crows will be dishing one out starting this week, reckon CEY has good js for a good month at least also.

Harry

Fyfe Captain?

Russty_

Don't have Danger, Dusty or Titch Harry?

Harry

I have dusty and titch, but afraid of potential tags….
Fyfe averaging 135 against Suns

Sc_Wow

Put the vc on him

Russty_

Trust your gut then mate, just hope they don't put Holman on him,,lol, he'll be tackling him every 2 minutes.

Harry

Put the VC on Cripps…
Last week Holman tagged Cripps yet scored nicely

Shake_n_Bake_

l like Gawn today to.

Daniel Z

Naaaah, I'm going Sicily. Or Olango, haven't decided yet.

Shake_n_Bake_

Beams out.

INPieman

If you have him perfect excuse to get rid of him

Don

Is it worth doing JOM to Bonner?

Tim

Bonner or Murphy? Who will be better for cash generation in the long term?

King

Murphy cause he is way cheaper
