PODCAST: SICILY YOU TWAT

Published by Patch on

We are back, but it is Tuesday.

Up is down, left is right, Brett Deledio is pumping out 150s. We don’t know what’s going on normally, but this is a whole new level of confusion.

What a weird round this is – ANZAC Day on a Wednesday throws everything out of kilter. Recorded Monday, edited Tuesday and published now just as everything we say goes out of date.

We cover Fritsch (advice is to hold), Sicily (who after getting one week Patch would advise to hold), Zorko, rookies, dropping premiums and the tantalising prospect of a stupid, sexy Brett Deledio.

Stay tuned for more things during the week, but for now, strap yourself in and have a good old listen to your pals Lekdog and Patchy as they argue into the night. Come join us!

Patch

To repeat: our advice is to HOLD Fritsch. HOLD. Trading him to Higgins or Guelfi in a panic is not a good idea.

nickgonzalez771

Keeping him anyway, but a BIG sigh of relief as I can use him to grab Fyfe's score as VC!

BloodyFranklin

This mid-game live podcast business is a good idea.

Seriously.

Beezneez

Trading to Higgins would've turned out alright – at least for round 5.

hedski

Jelwood cleared will be handy against swans.
Looks like a late night in the shed, will have to listen to the pod after the footy. πŸ‘

theRealPod

Awesome news! No Buddy or Hanners will make it hard for Swans.

SC_Donkey

Means lock that C on Danger and throw awat the key.

SC_Donkey

Actually just saw the match up for next round, Danger(VC) into Fyfe(C) for me.

theRealPod

Solid Donks I'll prob go same way

Phil

Might be worth noting that I think there is a big chance Guelfi gets left out of the side for the next game. With the 4-day turn around you would think some of the younger/inexperienced types won't play both games.

Lekdog

Good call Phil, that is a risk we didn’t discuss.

Ando

So glad I got rid of Zorko for Oliver.

theRealPod

Nice move Ando.

SC_Sixty6

Oliver was robbed tonight. On the other hand Nank was gifted a 71 odd that he did not deserve. Should of finished on 50 maximum!

Lekdog

Actually agree on both points, Oliver was a bit quiet in the second half but thought his early influence was large

Derek

Oliver was on 87 half way through the 3rd quarter.

DANGER1VDUSTY2

Who still has M.Hibberd? Very frustrating still having Hibberd/Petracca/Sicily/Bonner – something needa be done.

Lekdog

You mean HeathShaw2.0😯? I do. Bloody bastard stinking up my team. Not sure what to do with him, getting outscored by all defensive rookies

Sc_Wow

Suck it up and get rid of him, watched him closely last night and is role is not sc friendly. No kick outs, Melbourne not looking for him out of defence, Vince used a lot more. He’s done, 80 avg at best

DacZawson

Trades this week gonna be difficult.
Mirra has looked okay but I'm not as set on him as most people are.
Higgins scored really well but job security looks poor at best.
Be good to see how Guelfi goes against the Pies.
The Freo rookie in defence scored well, but watching the game, he didn't really stand out so not sure where I stand on him in being a target in a couple of weeks time.
And most frustratingly with all these rookie options, I've still got bloody Hibberd and Goldy stinking things up.

Do people have any thoughts on what my priorities should be???

Whatyasmokin

Who did the freo rookie come in for? May have decent JS if the injuries there are long term.

SC_Donkey

Hibbo has officially became Shaw 2.0 this was my fear after Rd 2. Many had convinced me to keep him, but I only blame myself for not believing in myself. My decision now is to actually keep him all year for bench cover at D7, as I think it will be a waste to use a trade on him. Taylor and Bonner will gone for me this week for a Rookie and 1 at fwd or Def premo.

Ahmad rubas

Yeah I'm thinking the same thing most likely just going to keep him and save the trade and hope he turns it around. maybe come the bye rounds I might sideways him to a simmo yeo or Sicily if they are cheap but most likely just going to save the trades

CaptainObvious

Mate turn him into a dpp rookie/loopy and use the cash to get two Premos for 2 rooks

Pranav Santhosh

trade isnt worth it anymore im just losing 65k if i had gone through with it round 2 or 3 fair enough but i made that mistake and just going to hold him now

Sc_Wow

Hey mate agree with donkey or don’t reply at all

Lekdog

Thinking very similarly

SC_Donkey

It's way too late to trade him out now, rd 3 and 4 was an ideal to boot him. He's lost us a fair bit of cash and will lose us a trade. If he lifts during and after the byes will be a bonus for us who keeps him. If you go down this path must be prepared to bench Hibbo now and then if you have a loophole player like O'Connor that can swing with Finlayson.

Sc_Wow

How’s a guy that can’t play footy and is clearly suffering from a role change going to lift and come good

SC_Donkey

Did I say his going to lift?

I said "if"

And if he does "will be a bonus"

He's just gonna be a D7 anyway for cover and not gonna waste my time or trade on him. I can get full premo without trading him out.

Sc_Wow

Tbh I’d rather a dodee finylayson Murray as a d7 over Hibberd, those guys have far better roles. Hibb is only 40-50 off a set premo, I’m going to get him out and never look back.

I’m just informing you that your “if” is never going to happen

SC_Donkey

Yes! Mr know it all.

Ok
Ok
Ok.

Let's just leave it as that.
You have your team to worry about as I have mine.

Cheers

No further comment pls
Pretty pls!

Sc_Wow

No need to get rude because I don’t agree with you. So defensive

I was hoping hib would come good but it’s not going to happen.

SC_Donkey

Give a rest man. If you don't agree then don't, don't need to convince me. I'll make my own decision and I own it if it's a mistake.

As i stated in my OP i blame myself for not trading him out after rd 2. You and Sc_sixty6 are getting too annoying for me.
We don't have to follow your opinion or advice and don't need to shove down our throats.

And which part don't you understand no more comments.

Sc_Wow

I’m not shoving it down your throat re read. I’m entitled to my opinion, I’m in the same situation and I’m doing something different. I’m sure other people would appreciate seeing a different approach to dealing with Hib. And you get defensive when I disagree. Wasn’t trying to change your mind, I couldn’t care less about your team. You need to check your attitude I’m free to comment, don’t need your permission

Sean

I am a bit concerned about my forward line. Copped a zero with Fritsch and Fogarty both out. Now Buddy isn't playing next week. $137,000 left in the bank, Thoughts?

L. Franklin, T. Greene, T. McLean, D. Smith, A. Christensen, B. Fritsch
D. Fogarty, L. Keeffe

Phil

Fogarty out for Guelfi or Higgins (depends how Guelfi goes today and if named next game)
I wouldn't be scared off by picking Higgins. You can justify his lack of job security when avoiding a donut I think

David C

Langdon probably back next week is another option.

neil demons delight

First of all congrats to the TIGERS no wonder they are flag favourites.I wonder just how good they would be with GAWN. My team ? well what an insipid performance goes all the way back to the camp they chickened out of.They laughed at GOODY and disrespect him. Time for a CLARKSON or HARDWICK . cheers

The Ranger

They were very good in tight around the ball Neil but it all broke down as soon as they got the ball outside and that fwd line looks ordinary except for Petracca and Hogan.
Big challenge for the coach to see of he can sort it out.

Beezneez

Don't forget they got towelled by the Crows a couple of weeks ago. Pity the GF is played on their home ground.

Bells

My season has fallen apart quicker than a $2 shop toy. Should I compound it by NOT bringing in Higgins this week?

theRealPod

You'd think Higgins will be a regular in the side after last night. Loved the interview post game he was in, a real knock about. The tiger fans already love him.

Marty

Looking at the vision from the Sicily incident despite it being a dumba$$ dog act not sure it was more than a love tap. Not excusing it and yes it needs to be stamped out of the game but…..oh crap it's Sicily give him 5 weeks.

AlbertonOval

He's a bloody parrot. Pull your head in son

TOPHAWK1

I reckon Hardwick will find a permanent spot for Higgins. He may miss next game due to the 4 day break, but after that he should play regular games. He was excellent last night. If you look at the performances of Butler, Townsend, and Brandon Ellis of late, if I was any of those 3 blokes, Id be worried, very worried. One will get the chop IMO.

Whatyasmokin

Agreed, apparently has a good tank too which is a massive factor.

Steeeve

I have Petracca and Curnow up forward. They're not setting the world alight but it means I only have to field one rookie. That has been a blessing so far and I'm very happy I made the structural adjustment. My backline is loaded with rookies who are doing just as well as most premos, the midfield has Holman and Kelly, and English is a cash cow at R3. The forward line rookies are an absolute mess. Best to hold onto these underperforming "keepers" and hope they come good — worst case scenario, Buddy, JJK and others will be cheap soon (and probably again before the year is out) so we can always upgrade using only a single trade.

StevoRivo

Tigers depth and pressure very impressive. Dees play 2 quarters again and disappear. Lambert a jet, nice POD, plays better with Prestia in the team. Hibberd and Sicily on very thin ice. Stoked when I have 3 x 151 scores and Fyfe Captain. Higgins on my radar but JS a worry still.

theRealPod

Last season the Tigers won the flag on the back of the pressure they bring. They are back to that level after last night and I don't think any team will challenge if they keep it going. The Dees tried there best first half then were ripped apart. Could be back to back for the yellow and black.

TOPHAWK1

I have similar issues to you Steeeve. The backline and midfield are fine, but the forward line looks more like swiss cheese. I have Petracca, Billings, Christensen and a swag of dodgy rooks up there. Like you, I will hang on to the premos like Tracca and Billings and hope they come good. Will look to upgrade Christensen to Toby McLean next week and hope that Higgins and Guelfi become regulars at their clubs. I am hoping that will settle my forward line moving forward. Cheers mate.

TOPHAWK1

Does anybody know what Clayton Oliver's new BE will be going into round 6 after his 104 last night? I think that 88 he scored a few weeks ago will drop out of his rolling average.

I am hoping I can hold off 1 extra week before snapping him up. I want to upgrade Allen Christensen to Toby McLean first next week.

Lekdog

I think it’ll be around 118 but my maths could be off

TOPHAWK1

Thanks Lek. If it is 118, then that buys me one week of extra time. Very handy!

Derek

Did you trade out Fritsch?

TOPHAWK1

Fritsch is traded out for Guelfi. Hope he goes well today and is not a late out…… Higgins was very good last night. Think he will get more games after that effort. If Higgins is selected again, Oliver might have to wait one week. Might have to do a double downgrade first. If both named, Bonner to Mirra and then Brayshaw to Higgins. With Oliver's BE still at 118, I can luckily grab Oliver the week after. Christensen to Oliver via DPP.

Cheers Derek

Sam_01

108 according to sc gold

Steeeve

How low could Dusty's price drop? I am keen to grab Matt Crouch soon but if Dusty is affordable he will have to take priority!

theRealPod

Dusty should be priority period.

Whatyasmokin

No Brainer surely. Dusty did win the brownlow and is currently playing.

Tommo

My team is looking a bit shaky but with a few good trades my scores could be boosted quickly
Am thinking Guelfi and Mirra this week but Higgins looked very good last night. I also saw a comment saying Guelfi is at risk of losing his spot with a short turnaround. So that means I can get Higgins this week and Guelfi next week.

Bont Lynch Petracca and O’Meara have also been underperforming

Thoughts guys?

Def: Laird Hurley Simpson Doedee Finlayson Murray (Naughton O’Connor)
Mid: Danger Dusty Fyfe Bont O’Meara Kelly Holman Brayshaw (LDU Dow Clark)
Ruc: Gawn NicNat (Cameron)
Fwd: Heeney Buddy Lynch Petracca Christensen Henry (Garlett Fritsch)

Tommo

Also have 27 trades and 181k left

Derek

I wouldn’t say Omera’s 142 last week is underperforming, but they do say a week is a long time in football and his 60 this week was not a keepers score.

You might have to get rid of at least one of you expensive rookies. Get Mirra who is very cheap, via O’Connar DPP and put some cash in the warchest.

You need another big point scorer in the mids. Who do you like?

Tommo

Definitely want T.Mirch but I want another player who will consistently get 110 but have a high ceiling.

I also need to choose between Guelfi and Higgins

Rick Grimes

Might have to trade Lambert back in. Sigh

INPieman

Only Tiger that tonned up

TOPHAWK1

And my plan was shouted down last week!! Funny how things change so quickly. I decided not to go ahead with the plan to grab Lambert last week as the ultimate POD. 119 and 119 two weeks running…….Aaaargh just kicking myself a bit now.

Derek

I think there were 11 tigers scored in the 90’s

theRealPod

Good even team effort

JugHead

Thats what makes it hard to select one of their second liners behind dusty. Used to be the same with the swans mids. I always picked the wrong one.

Whatyasmokin

Yep, wouldn't touch Lambert.

harry

anyone know what the respective breakevens will be for
Danger, Titch, Oliver

TOPHAWK1

Apparently Oliver is 118. Not sure on Titch and Danger. Titch BE would be up on last week and Danger will be down.

Defying_Madness

Now everyone will have merret next week

Crowboy94

I know! Bloody annoying!

theRealPod

Why not? he's a gun when at his best. Looks like he's over his concussion issues.

TOPHAWK1

Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhh Zachary Merrett. You good boy! I keep you and you come good. 48 SC at quarter time. Welcome!

Derek

He looks sharp. I brought him in this week for Kelly. Happy.

TOPHAWK1

Lovely trade. Guelfi looking good as well. If he can produce an 80 odd I will be very happy.

Derek

Guielf doin good

hedski

Nice pick up Derek.

Crowboy94

You jinxed him! Done F ALL so far this qtr now…

TOPHAWK1

He will be fine. 63 SC at half time.

redherringfc

6 points for out of bounds.

Nice.

johnno2908

And a little bit of forearm. What a load of…

theRealPod

Definitely hit his arm. No brainer.

TOPHAWK1

Not only that. But Hurley touched it as well after that when Sidebottom fired at goal.

GreendaleFC

Don't think it was out of bounds or clear that it hit Hurley's arm. Good decision by the umps

theRealPod

You shoulda gone to speck savers. In the replay you can see his skin move on forearm

Whatyasmokin

Damn…..see his skin move? Sounds like some good eyesight!

Marty

Thought it hit the post actually. Should have been a throw in

GreendaleFC

Both Begley and Green injured. That's got to be good for Guelfi's job security.

TOPHAWK1

Yep. He has definately backed up again from last week. I am very pleased with him. He should get regular games. He and Higgins could both be rested because of the 4 day break, but they should both be back.

Crowboy94

Anyone else think this game is horrible? Such a bad game to watch…. nothing like past Anzac Day games at all.

TOPHAWK1

So many errors by the bombers. Its an ugly game of footy alright.

Neverweaken

Seems like most rounds. 2 good games and 6 games of rubbish.

TOPHAWK1

Daniher drunk or something? Playing like an uncoordinated dunce. Gee wizz.

JugHead

The selectors will help us decide. Although neither deserves to be dropped, It wouldnt surprise to see one or more rookies rested because of the short turnaround

hedski

Guelfi mature aged so I think he'll hold his spot.

JugHead

Could be a gift in disguise. If anyone wants Mirra, Higgins and Guelfi, if one gets dropped you could double downgrade this week and paint the fence next week bringing a fallen premo in.

JugHead

Whats par this week? 2250 ~ 2300?

Finnius

I think 2250 will be top 5% looking at my leagues.

Jeff

Scored 2210 this round which im ashamed to say was actually my best score so far this year. Oh well I can only go up. How did everyone else do?

BlueBaggerJosh

2313

Finnius

2289

The Ranger

2348

Finnius

huge ranger

The Ranger

I think the SC Gods owed me one Fin!

Neverweaken

2200. Continuing my crap run of captains. Buddy into Coniglio this week.

Richard

2261

TheBenchmark25

2290 poor captain choice for me

nickgonzalez771

2222, somehow Top 7% which seems crazy to me. Lots of poor performers in there though, no Kruze, Garlett on field, and throw in Kelly, Parker and Henry as underwhelming.

Steeeve

2303. Lost in my main league thanks to Stephenson playing well for opponent grrr

Marty

2273 (Gray) Waterman 44 Richards 44 didn't help hoping to go up a little from around 4k mark

Sc_Wow

Congrats

Neverweaken

Hoping Higgins gets rested so i can pick him up next week. Or Guelfi Cos I want Mirra and one of these. Higgins with dpp looks tempting.

r_calve

im getting rid of zorko, should i target an uber premo or should i go for a fallen premo that looks to be turning it up right about now like pendles or seb ross

thoughts please cos zorko is just awful and no longer deserves a spot in my team

Finnius

Zerrett would be great if you don't have him.

r_calve

got him bro

Russty_

I wouldn't call Pendles a fallen premo at 573 but he does look like he's on the Improve…along with his Team. I'd trust him over Ross.

Whatyasmokin

Agreed, proven uber playing well.

Tyruddanaut

Surely a fallen premo

Sc_Wow

2009 this week

Finnius

Where are you ranked now?

Sc_Wow

2309*
I’m 209 overall

Teddy

Want a medal?

Sc_Wow

Just replying to a comment

Tyruddanaut

I do

Russty_

You want a trolling medal?..I'd give you a 'ranked inside the top 500 medal at round 6' medal Wow lol

BadgerHoney7

Anyone watch Taylin Dumin on the weekend, feel like his job security is much better than Mirras, Burgoyne back this week, Sicily the next probably pushes him out to be honest so feeling like Dumin is a much safer option, plus he scored 85, anyone watched Tom Cole also, interested to see how he pans out.

Finnius

only played one game. You can't bring him in no matter how well he played – especially due to the plethora of rookies on the bubble this week.

Whatyasmokin

I have my doubts about Mirra too.

Neverweaken

Hoping Higgins gets rested with the short turn around. And Maybe Guelfi too. The 102k Mirra looks too good to pass up
Gonna roll the dice this week and go Buddy to Lids. Will make or break my season

Sc_Wow

Lids really????

Whatyasmokin

Break

BlueBaggerJosh

I'm jumping on lids too but hold buddy mate

Connor

For f**k sake, have now scored 2002 two weeks in a row (lost 20/20 league matches) and have dropped back to 38,000th overall – exact replica of last year…
Started strong, made some bad on-field rookie calls, injuries to premiums preventing me trading out underperformers = spending my whole season climbing back up the rankings and finishing mid-range
May as well give up now, its gonna be another long season :/

Sc_Wow

Might as well

2sweet

No need for that wow. Always trying to provoke people! Can still win your leagues with smart trades connor, good luck!

Jordan

Should I go zorko to danger this week?

Steeeve

Goodness me yes

INPieman

Without a seconds thought. Get it done

Goat

Seems as if you have 2 challenges – plot a climb back up the rankings – and work out what went wrong for next year. No point giving up. Set a goal and achieve it.

Goat

That was a reply to Connor sorry.

BlueBaggerJosh

This week
Bonner-Mirra
Garlett-Deledio

next week ill hope holmans price rise eclipses merrett's and i can bring him in after downgrading Fritsch (hopefully higgins or Guelfi are rested)

Sam_01

If Holman gets 70 odd he goes up 20k
Merret has break even of 64 projected for 70 and not to move in price but that’s just sc gold projections
Doubt he will go up more than holman

Niail

Who defender to get in for Hibberd?

Yeo, Simpson or Hurley?

All fit my bye structure

Sam_01

Probably go yeo because he is cheapest or Simpson because he has the biggest ceiling al will be top defenders though can’t go wrong. If you got Sicily fwd you can swing him back and grab a fwd

iLoveNMFC

No love for Hurley?

Finnius

all great players. Yeo's great bye and price work in his favour. They are the three defensive upgrades I am looking at so you will want all of them at some point, it just depends who suits the best now.

Tyruddanaut

Yeo fo-sho. Midfield time

Steeeve

Anyone think Mirra has a hope of playing enough games to make us coin?

Sam_01

Will go up 65k first week bargain price if he is named I’ll be bringing him in I would have thought

Finnius

higgins and guelfi good options as well though. Can't bring them all it it just depends who you want to cull.

Steeeve

I'd love to bring in two rookies this week so I can definitely afford Brayshaw up to Dusty soon after but will see who is named

Finnius

will be a very interesting one. Sunday extended bench will be a killer as we wont have long to make a decision.

Sam_01

2351 this week community loving treloar as my pod 110 average so far hope he keeps it up!
Gartlett and fristch out for guelfie and Mirra will give me 300k in the bank for next week
Thing being with Sicily out this will leave me playing 5 rookies on field in the backline was running with 4 previously! Would love your thoughts community!

Ken

Is Patrick Cripps a top 10 mid ?

Sam_01

potentially when kruezer is fully fit that will help him
Danger dusty Mitchell Fyfe coniglio Oliver? kelly crouch McRae merret cripps?
I’d say danger to Oliver are locked into top 10 cripps could creep in there, better options around though price wise at the moment

Whatyasmokin

Not sure about Crouch considering his time out may have to work back into form plus the gibbs effect. Would have more faith in someone like Pendles, considering his reasonable SC history.

Russty_

Pendles is looking like he could get back to somewhere near his best, Pies looking good too.

Whatyasmokin

Yep no doubt. His tackle count is great which means he's confident in his body, he had niggling injuries last year if I recall.

Sc_Wow

I think crouch is still right up there, Gibbs doesn’t effect him position wise, crouch’s role is to be in the packs and win the hard ball

Whatyasmokin

In theory for sure. In reality we have to wait and see. Sometimes gotta just go with who is performing and ignore previous performance or assumptions.

CalebCripps922

Top 1 Mid In my opinion.

Defying_Madness

You must be joking

Sam_01

Another question community since my midfield is stacked
Danger, dusty, Fyfe, coniglio, treloar, cripps, Oliver Tim kelly at m8 can I afford to bring in a fallen premo such as Zach merret or any of the likes or do I just have to fork out for Tom mitchell has thrown out two stinkers which works in my favour, but the extra value isn’t exactly there!

Finnius

you need titch to round that out I reckon. I wouldn't be looking for him straight a way though as Kelly is a gun rookie you need onfield.

Sam_01

may consider trading cripps and treloar late in the year if I have loads of trades and others are producing the goods
Will probably try go a bit early on the kelly trade if I have to doubt Mitchell will have another patch of double average scores might try get him in 2-3 weeks
Mitchel expected to drop 38k even if he scores 125 so 2-3 weeks he will be sub 600k will need about 200k to trade kelly up to him

Whatyasmokin

I reckon cripps will be alright but Treloar…..did u play sc last year? Big plums picking him!

Sam_01

It’s paid off mate I’ve had him the last 3 years πŸ˜‚ was very disappointed last year though Collingwood side always gets the better of me

Sc_Wow

How are your other lines

Sam_01

Back: laird Sicily doeedee murray Finlayson bonner
Mid: danger, Fyfe, Oliver, treloar, cripps, cogs, dusty, tkelly
Ruck: Gawn nicnat
Fwd: heeny mclean Walters smith gartlett fristch
Sitting ranked 2000ish
How important is brining in the likes of guelfie and Mirra this week sc wow?
I have Murphy, Langdon, fristch, o”keefe, Barry all not playing gartlet is an flog also
Was gonna bring them both in this week but it will give me a 5 rookie defence tonfield if I do
Or should I just go one and also grab yeo?

Russty_

Sicily is a massive Twat, but I'll give him one more chance, if he does it again, he's goneski!

Whatyasmokin

Yep just got him in the other week got me one score now a week off. Surely can't do crap like that again this year………..

Russty_

He could mate…but 3 strikes and yer out!…in my rules πŸ™‚
Clarko already admitted, he plays in a state of "white line fever", a heightened state of insanity and aggression. Our fault for picking him I guess haha

Finnius

the problem is that the guy is so good – guaranteed top 6 defender (on average obviously as he will only play 19 games a season)

Jordan

Who to get rid of for merret? Brayshaw, banfield, Holman or bonner?

Cam

Bonner 100%

BadgerHoney7

Bonner or Brayshaw

Derek

Bonner is a chance to get dropped this week

2sweet

Bonner is named, but he needs to be traded

BadgerHoney7

Who has better job security, Guelfi or Higgins?

2sweet

About the same. Guelfi marginally i would say. Both not great though

James

Garlett -> Guelfi
Bonner -> Oliver via Coffield

Thoughts?

Whatyasmokin

Can't see anything wrong with it.

BrownlowBoy

Toby Greene out this week.

r_calve

zorko to cripps
fritsch to giles langdon if he is back or if he stays in higgins

thoughts or any other premos i could upgrade to got cogs, merret, neale, titch and fyfe

Whatyasmokin

Danger and Dusty soon. Pendles.

Bells

Should I get in Merrett? Will he end up a top 10 mid?

Whatyasmokin

Good chance, and price is right.

BrownlowBoy

Worpel also making his debut this weekend. Another potential cash cow, along with the young Mcinerney from Brisbane.

Barlow and Langdon return this week.

Petracca out with finger injury.

Kelly and Lobb miss again.

Skindog

Watch the Worpedo,hes a beast, just not great DE

2sweet

What happened to petraccas finger? Stuck too far up his own ass?

Tyruddanaut

Got bitten by De goeys dog

2sweet

I have a problem with trading premiums, really dont like doing it unless there is an injury, but zorko has really stuffed my team up. Should i trade him to oliver, or potentially merrett whos a lot cheaper? Or still hold…. really torn!!! Any advice community???

Teddy

Merrett is very good value

Tyruddanaut

I’d say Merrett. Oliver is way too expensive to being in. Or you can bring in Yeo? Curnow?

Finnius

580k is the cheapest you will get him

Teddy

Ive got buddy, sicily, greene and petracca!! This week is officially f*****!!!!! Will have to rely on garletts 20 points, cant wait!

BlueBaggerJosh

Lol he got dropped as well

Teddy

What a week! I give up!

Russty_

Rough week Teddy, just trade your ass off and get the best score you can this week.

John

Trading Hibberd to Yeo this week. Thoughts? I’m also thinking of holding Zorko hoping he comes good.

Tyruddanaut

Absolute Dilemma!

I’m doing a sideways trade this week as well as a downgrade. My original plan was to bring in Guelfi or Mirra for Bonner, but realizing Garlett is out, I am hold Bonner for another week.

After deciding to bring in Yeo for Zorko, I have been left with no DPP in defense. So if Fritsch doesn’t play I’m screwed. The main thing to do is not pick Yeo. But I want him

Thoughts?

Russty_

Maybe reverse the Sidewaysy and trade according to necessity rather than preference.

Jam

Is zach merret a keeper? He is cheap, but is it worth getting him or just going up to oliver? Trading tabs out and swinging heeney forward so can go anyone really.

Sam_01

If you still have room in your mid get merret now will be a top mid I’d say and he is to good value to pass up right now will go back up to 600k worth getting him over other upgrades value wise

AlbertonOval

he's a certified gun and you won't get him any cheaper

Dan

Need some help. Do I upgrade Bonner to Danger, Oliver or Zerret this week. Have 200k in the bank after upgrading to Danger but not sure if this is the best option as it doesn't allow for better upgrades in the future. Any advice is appreciated :))

Jam

Similar decision, im not going danger, he could fo down and i don't see him going back up to 750. Merret or oliver is the hard one, are they both keepers?

HammerTime

Who to bring in: Giles-Langdon, Higgins or other?
and
Yeo, Simpson or Hurley?
Thinking ZGL and YEO!

simon

Should i trade out Toby Greene?
How long is he out for??

Stupid Coach

Greetings community. I would like to thank you for you advice last week and helping me to put the C on big Maxy Gawn. Unfortunately it has been the only highlight for my team over the past two weeks where my pitiful excuse for a SC team has failed to crack 1900 despite bringing in titch and dusty. I have 25 trades and 273k in the bank. I was looking to trade out McGrath and Zorko but with Buddy and Petracca out and only rookies to cover them, I am not sure what I should be doing or if I should even bother if I am going to get the same score and be flogged in every league I play. For your amusement, here is my team

B: Laird, Savage, McGrath, Ryan, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson, Brighton.
M: Danger, Dusty, Titch, Zorko, Parker, Cogs, T Kelly, Holman, Garlett, Coffield, Barry
Rucks: Gawn, Bank, Olongo
F: Buddy, Smith, Petracca, Henry, Crowden, Fritsch, Gowers, ZGL.

Any advice much appreciated.

Stupid Coach

Sorry should be Naughton not Brighton (stupid auto word predictor).

Hi Coach, maybe ride Gowers and ZGL scores this week and look to upgrade your backline, or, you could go Garlett out for Higgins or Guelfi, maybe McGrath out for Hurley?…consider Finlayson onfield over McGrath.

Rocksta

Do I trade in Zach Merret or Toby McClean? I just can’t decide because of Merrett’s great value.

Russty_

Hey Rocksta, i'd say, go back and look at both their records, who as the better record of delivering tons?

Rocksta

I changed my mind again. Have brought in Robbie Gray (at this stage). My Gut tells me it isn’t a great week to bring him in with the potential Jacobs tag but I’m sure he will be a top 3 forward this season.
I also can’t decide whether to trade out Banfield or Murphy (Adel) for Higgins. Banfield still has money to make but is never on my field. I reckon Murphy will play next week and has a BE of -50, but hasn’t appreciated much due to his injury break.

Option 1:

Bonner -> Hurley
Garlett -> Guelfie
Leaves me with 50k

Option 2:

Bonner -> Oliver
Garlett -> Guelfie
Leaves me with 7k

Option 3:
Bonner -> Mirra
Garlett -> Guelfie
Leaves 485k in the warchest to upgrade over the next 2 weeks

SC_Sixty_6

Either Option 1 or 2. Both Hurley and Oliver will be top 6 defenders / top 8 mids. Depends which position needs an upgrade more.

Why don't you make your own real profile, instead of impersonating someone else?, it's a bit pathetic what you're doing.
You're stalking someone online, because they hurt your feelings in the past?…just deal with it and don't be a flog mate.

James

No idea what your on about mate

Nobby Bobby

Bonner -> Mirra, Hibberd -> Danger. Trades done. Will hold Petracca and hopefully his week off will give him time to think about how he can live up to his SuperCoach hype when he’s back

Big G

Who is a bigger waste of space at the moment – Zorko or Piggy?

Who else is wearing a donut in the forward line? I have Sicily, Buddy, Petraca, Garlett and Fritsch. Was gonna get Mirra but wont now. Bonner gone, Sicily back on def bench and getting in Guelfi and Lids. Really hoping higgins isnt named this week

Teddy

In a similar boat mate, think fritsch should get a game this week though…hopefully!!

Chicken

Cripps this week and Sicily next week or Merrett this week and McLean next week

MRmoMAN

With already using 8 trades, and 7 players out of full premo including billings who is not playing like one at the moment, should i be holding walters for the 4 weeks? going for league wins only, however have cash on the line in a competitive league

NoLanguage

Hey community, would love a word of advice on the team going into R7!

B – Laird, Savage, Hibberd, Doedee, Murray, MIrra (Naughton, Richards)
M – Fyfe, Mitchell, Dusty, Cripps, Coniglio, Parker, Kelly, Finlayson (Banfield, Holman, Barry)
R – Gawn, Martin (Cameron)
F – Heeney, Walters, Smith, Sicily, Christensen, Fritsch (Guelfi, Henry)

25 trades & $233k in the bank

Scored 2207 & ranked 2500 and hit my first bit of carnage this week with Walters going down. Some options??

1) Walters to Gray and Holman down to Spargo
2) Walters to McLean and Holman down to Spargo
3) Hold Walters and go Holman up to Merrett and Banfield down to Spargo

Any thoughts or general feedback would be appreciated as always πŸ™‚
