It’s FINALS TIME!

Supercoach finals, that is. But Supercoach is all that matters in this big old world of ours, so that’s all we’re caring about, Supercoach finals.

Lekdog and Patch strap themselves in and wade their way through a whole big old ball of finals related content.

They look at finals strategy, trade strategies – whether to go with PODs or with tried and tested premiums, who some of the sneaky pods might be and also they shout at each other, because it wouldn’t be a Jock Reynolds 2018 podcast without Lek and Patch yelling at each other.

So climb aboard, keep your arms and legs inside the cart at all times and have a good time as Jock Reynolds rolls on into finals.

Hey community, I’ve got a bit of a SuperCoach conundrum I thought everyone could help with. My team is currently sitting 71st overall, and I have 3 trades left. Currently my D6, M8, and F6 are McDonald (99.54), Martin (102.18) and Franklin (91.13), however I can swing McDonald forward and put savage (88.67) on the field. My question is, do I bring in an 10 point upgrade in defence in Hurn, or a 15 point upgrade in midfield with Macrae. I would be able to relegate Franklin or Martin to the bench, but it’s more a case of doing the best upgrade, or backing in Dusty to finish the season strong. Need some help. Cheers community.

    Filth Wizard · 30/07/2018 at 23:07

    Macrae

    paul warren · 31/07/2018 at 05:40

    Go with your gut as to be 71st you have been making the right decisions anyway.

    TheGreatBozza · 31/07/2018 at 12:35

    Are you swinging McDonald FWD without trading (e.g using someone like Keefe) If so I'd put Savage to D6, McDonald to F6 and try use Buddy as an F7 loop as he has been out of sorts. Then upgrade to Macrae.

      Holty01 · 31/07/2018 at 12:54

      I like Bozzas suggestion. And i also assume you mentioning Hurn means you already have Laird Yeo Simpson and Lloyd?

        Fozdaddy FC · 01/08/2018 at 10:41

        Thanks fellas.

        Def: Lloyd Laird Yeo Simpson McDonald Hurley (Savage McDaid)

        I’d be able to swap McDonald to Fwd via Ahern going to the mid, and Joel Smith going to Def. Then I’d bring in Hurn.

        However, I can bring MacRae into the midfield for Giro, with Dusty going to the bench as my lowest scoring mid. This way I can have McDonald and Savage loopholes with McDaid (Carlton rook), Dusty and Coniglio loopholed with Smith, assuming he gets dropped. In the forward line I can have Buddy and Ahern loopholed with Tim Smith. Melbourne and Carlton play 7 of their last 8 games on Sunday, with the 1/8 being a Carlton Saturday night, making these three perfect for loopholes.

          Mark Fawcett · 01/08/2018 at 23:46

          what's your full team? Be good to see your DPP links mate. I'm currently 58th and have heaps of DPP links between all lines including McDonald in my backline with Keeffe in my forward line. and J.Smith in my mids to DPP with Brayshaw if required and Ahern and Daniels in mid/fwd. Been a huge lifesaver being able to swing players to where I need them if there are injuries.

          Randomcliche2 · 02/08/2018 at 15:16

          Sounds like you can do the Ahern, Smith, McDonald swing while doing the Macrae upgrade to me…. (i.e. trade out giro, sub ahern, sub mcdonald, sub smith, buy Macrae).

nutsack · 30/07/2018 at 23:13

ten thoy-ty no upload….ten foy-ty no upload….23.10…. finally…..su-poyb!!!!! (voice of little mobster Bart Simpson)

Trade decisions · 31/07/2018 at 00:30

Dusty to McRae?
or
Franklin to any forward?
or
Nank to Grundy?

    Corey · 31/07/2018 at 07:29

    Nank To Grundy

      Trade decisions · 31/07/2018 at 08:45

      Even though he's playing geelongs ruck?

        Yeahnah · 31/07/2018 at 13:01

        Stanley has been playing well recently, Gawn only scored 90 odd against them and Stef Martin only 80 odd.

What_Bear · 31/07/2018 at 01:35

Hello Community.,

I have some thinking to do before the finals. I have 2 trades and no money. My weakest players and Walters and Fritsch. I also have Higgins and Ahern trapped in my mids

Trade 1. Trade Josh Battle to a Non Playing DPP to allow Higgins to loop with Fritsch and Ahern to loop with Dusty
Trade 2. Trade Fritch to Wingard, D. Smith or Stanley and allow Higgins to swing with Walters.

Questions:
1. Is it worth using 2 trades
2.Wingard, D. Smith or Stanley

Predictor has me losing by under 10 points, so very very tight

Thanks in advance for any advice, it is always appriciated

Good luck to all those playing in finals

    SC_Kev7 · 31/07/2018 at 08:33

    You in qualifying or elimination final this week, What_Bear? Elimination, do whatever you can. Qualifying, hold off, hope for the best and reassess next week.

      What_Bear · 31/07/2018 at 12:33

      Elimination unfortunately. Might make the 1st trade and see how Ahern and Higgins score. Can trade Fritsch later if I need be

        Holty01 · 31/07/2018 at 12:59

        Higgins will be missing a week or 2. Just had a minor clean out of his knee

Josh · 31/07/2018 at 08:42

Hi everyone.

Need some of your thoughts community. I have and under performing selwood in my midfield, with 50 k and 4 trades left. I'm tempted to downgrade Giro, and then upgrade Selwood to Macra, leaving me with two trades for finals. I'm ranked in the top 1000 so more keen for ranking than league (finished 2nd in league). I also have Savage in my backline as my other weak link.

Thanks community.

BadgerHoney7 · 31/07/2018 at 09:12

never thought id ask this question but who do i start, ahern or walters – can't loophole

    RoscoFOAD · 31/07/2018 at 10:16

    Walters has been poo in derbys – 39, 28 & 88 (most recent)

    Ahern has been solid, I can loop him though.

      Ja191 · 31/07/2018 at 16:04

      Roll change, put him back him back in the mids and he’ll average 100+ so annoying

    Finnius · 31/07/2018 at 11:01

    I'm thinking of starting Ahern

    Steeeve · 31/07/2018 at 17:26

    I'm considering bringing Walters in. Need a forward worth $450,000 or less (JJK has to go from my team).
    My main concern is they might rest him if his knee is still a bit dodgy.

      Derek · 01/08/2018 at 09:12

      This time of year with teams not making finals I’d stay away from, including Cripps and McCrea

    Defying_Madness · 31/07/2018 at 18:39

    Gotta back your premos I will be fielding Walters

    Randomcliche2 · 02/08/2018 at 15:19

    Walters. Easy. Rookie wall incoming….

Adam · 31/07/2018 at 09:15

Replacement for DeGoey ??

    Lekdog · 31/07/2018 at 11:24

    Jack Riewoldt, David Mundy, Westhoff, Bryce Gibbs, Jarryd Lyons, Bont – are all guys around his price

      Adam · 31/07/2018 at 12:16

      Thanks Lekdog I dislike jack can’t pick him lookn at
      Menegola, Mundy, Wallis ?? Thoughts

        Lekdog · 31/07/2018 at 16:52

        I think you’ve listed them in order of my preference

          Adam · 31/07/2018 at 17:14

          cheers Lek, now do I save 3 trades or down grade a rook to make sum cashhhhh leaving me 2

Ahmad rubas · 31/07/2018 at 10:23

Is dion Johnstone the best mid/fwd donut 123k is expensive but all Sundays games during finals for melbourne

    Lekdog · 31/07/2018 at 11:22

    Who is your R3?

      Ahmad rubas · 31/07/2018 at 17:37

      Olango? Are you saying don't waste a trade and use it for ruck cover instead?

      Lazza · 31/07/2018 at 19:51

      Not sure that’s relevant Lek, it’s looping F6/F7, not necessarily C.

    Yeahnah · 31/07/2018 at 13:02

    I was looking at him too if Giro and J.Dawson play this week

Steeeve · 31/07/2018 at 10:39

Need a forward for $450,000 or less.
Already have Gray, Heeney, McLean, Smith, Menegola.

    Lekdog · 31/07/2018 at 11:21

    Lambert or Gunston maybe?

      Finals · 31/07/2018 at 17:25

      Don't like Walters? I don't like him this week but his ceiling is enticing for the games after that. I'm in a second chance final in both my main leagues.

      Steeeve · 31/07/2018 at 17:27

      I can get a defender for $450k or less as well, by swinging T Mac forward… maybe better options down back?

Willymack1234 · 31/07/2018 at 12:25

Shaun Higgins out this week with minor knee surgery. Great

dontblushbaby · 31/07/2018 at 12:40

Good to see Carlton challenging Curnows 1 week ban, should get off imo

    Holty01 · 31/07/2018 at 13:01

    Agreed. As i said in the last post, if May only gets a week surely Curnow gets off

TheGreatBozza · 31/07/2018 at 12:48

Do we trust Ahern as a legit F6/F7? I'm thinking of downgrading Giro to a DPP/FWD mid, and upgrading De Goey to Macrae.

Would leave me with Crisp & Howe as my weakest defenders (D5/D6)
Dusty as my M9 and Ahern as F7 to loop with Walters

I'd have 2 trades left after

    Yeahnah · 31/07/2018 at 13:00

    I think so, he was playing limited game time for his first few games I believe and now it seems like he's getting a real go at it

Sam · 31/07/2018 at 12:52

McDonald vs GC or Hurn vs Freo

    Lekdog · 31/07/2018 at 16:53

    Hmm I’d back Hurn to produce a bigger score

      Sam · 01/08/2018 at 00:58

      Thanks Lek, last 2 games against them have been a 160 and a 130 so hope he keeps that form up

    Mark Fawcett · 01/08/2018 at 23:48

    you mean to bring in or who to play on the field? Presume you mean who to trade in? Do you have any DPP link to your forward line with someone like Keeffe or something?

Da_Boysh · 31/07/2018 at 15:24

3 trades left, finished 1st in my cash league and 632nd over all.

Deciding if I bench Higgins for Ahern or
cash in Ahern and go Higgins to Macrae

with my last trade next week will grab hawkins

Or do I just be patient and wait for Higgins to come back and save trades

    Russty_ · 31/07/2018 at 15:36

    Congrats on your results man, good stuff, Higgins should only be out one week, just minor arthroscopic surgery, and Ahern is a pretty good back up.
    Depends on how bad you want Macrae I guess.

      Da_Boysh · 31/07/2018 at 15:39

      Thanks mate, a lot of luck went my way!

      I might hold off I just really want Hawkins and I can't get him unless I cash Ahern.

        Russty_ · 31/07/2018 at 15:54

        Hawk doesn't average that well against Rancey Fancy Francey pants..if it wont hurt you having Ahern on field maybe hang onto your trades?..your call though, you're better placed than me this year.

Russty_ · 31/07/2018 at 15:28

Alistair Lynch…"Every game, we're gonna fk it"…lol, that is some serious Tourette Syndrome or a pretty funny accident.
Dermie's reaction was priceless. 🙂

    I’m a patriot · 31/07/2018 at 16:56

    It was GOLD hahaha

Limesoda · 31/07/2018 at 16:23

Can people rank these in order of who they think will score best in the final rounds?

Hurn, Brayshaw, McDonald, McGovern, Shaw

    Lekdog · 31/07/2018 at 16:54

    McG, Hurn, McD, Shaw, Brayshaw

    Finnius · 31/07/2018 at 21:16

    T Mac, Brayshaw, Hurn, Mcgovern, Shaw

    r_calve · 31/07/2018 at 22:05

    mcgovern, tmac, brayshaw, hurn, shaw

Ricardo · 31/07/2018 at 16:45

Is there a prize? 🙂
Brayshaw, McDonald, Hurn, Shaw, McGovern

Cookie · 31/07/2018 at 17:08

Thoughts on:
Martin to Macrae
Coniglio to Kelly
Leaves me with 2 trades

    I’m a patriot · 31/07/2018 at 17:43

    In my opinion
    Dusty to macrae I like,
    The other is not worth it,
    If you have the 2nd chance keep that trade in
    cotton wool

    Lazza · 31/07/2018 at 19:50

    I’m considering Bont to Macrae… have Martin too… which of the two?

      I’m a patriot · 31/07/2018 at 20:12

      The tigers v’s dogs in your granny
      The wrong decision would hurt.

John · 31/07/2018 at 17:54

If I have 3 trades left, is it worth using them to get higher averaging players?

    Russty_ · 31/07/2018 at 18:07

    Depends on whether you're in qualifying or elimination finals John, if it's do or die this week..maybe use 1 or 2, but more injuries will be on the way for sure, I still have 3 too, wish I had more lol

      John · 31/07/2018 at 18:09

      In my competitive league I have a double chance since I came first

        Russty_ · 31/07/2018 at 18:10

        Up to you but I'd hold, or use 1 max if you really want to.

          John · 31/07/2018 at 18:14

          Yeah alright I’ll think about it, cheers Russty

    Derek · 31/07/2018 at 22:38

    I’m in same boat. I have McGrath at D6, so missing many points. Will use to trades this week to trade him to Lloyd. I just have to.

johnno2908 · 31/07/2018 at 18:00

Elimination final. 2 trades left.
Thinking about trading out Buddy. Have had Taranto and Ahern on the bench the last 3 weeks, with no ability to loop.

Would be going Buddy and Giro to Macrae and $102k mid/fwd rookie for looping.

Would leave team as:
DEF: Yeo, Laird, Simpson, TMac, Shaw, Ryan (Brown, Heron)
MID: Mitchell, Cripps, Danger, Oliver, Macrae, Beams, Kelly, Ablett (Dusty, Worpel,mid/fwd donut)
RUCK: Gawn, Grundy (Olango)
FWD: Smith, Heeney, McLean, Gray, Walters, Taranto (Ahern, Battle)

Or save the trades?

    Derek · 31/07/2018 at 22:34

    wait for Dusty’s score before trading Macrea.

Pauly Walnuts · 31/07/2018 at 18:32

Curnow downgraded to a fine , now I can loop him with Ahern

Stacky23 · 31/07/2018 at 18:38

is de goey out for season or just 2 weeks cause need to know if i burn 1 of my final 2 trades on him

    Bad_News_Brown · 31/07/2018 at 20:32

    I had dinner with Goodesy and he said 2 weeks

    Russty_ · 31/07/2018 at 22:43

    AFL injury update says one more week.

dontblushbaby · 31/07/2018 at 18:43

Steele Sidebum – anyone think he's value as an M8 @ 463k, he has scored big against the next 4 teams he plays in the past ?

    Russty_ · 31/07/2018 at 21:51

    Yeah I reckon he's good value and cheapish..
    vs Sydney high score 133 av 92.3
    vs Lions high score 156 av 111.1
    vs PTA high score 130 av 96.4
    vs FREO high score 132 av 89.4

      dontblushbaby · 31/07/2018 at 22:19

      Thanks Rusty, I have 3 trades and 85k, I still have T.Kelly @ M8 atm, but finally time to move him on , still might downgrade Giro and bring in J.Kelly, decisions ?

Jeffrey · 31/07/2018 at 20:15

Westhoff or Wingard?

    Derek · 31/07/2018 at 20:18

    None of those. I would go Menagola instead

Bad_News_Brown · 31/07/2018 at 20:30

I can't believe you did not talk about Tippa or Hanners

    Patch · 01/08/2018 at 22:01

    Can't give away all our secrets, Browny

Rivo · 31/07/2018 at 20:59

3 trades for injuries and $27k, finished Top 4 in all leagues. Do I trade or hold either of Walters or JPK? Have Ahern and J.Higgins as bench swing set.

Sideways options include McLean, Greene, Bont, Wines,
Selwood, Taranto.

Worth trading or hold?

    dontblushbaby · 31/07/2018 at 22:44

    I would hold imo, both could come out and have 120's, however if you are like me and there is one league you really want to win have a look at your match ups and go from there , good luck

      Rivo · 01/08/2018 at 07:43

      Thanks, might try looping Ahern on the forward line. Lost faith in Walters.

      Rivo · 01/08/2018 at 14:17

      Walters to McLean worth a punt?

Cam · 31/07/2018 at 21:38

Gotta trade out Sicily. What are your thoughts on Angus Brayshaw as a POD??

    r_calve · 31/07/2018 at 22:03

    ye, but i like the gov better

    Derek · 31/07/2018 at 22:28

    Have a look at Browns home run if you want a POD

      dontblushbaby · 31/07/2018 at 22:52

      No Higgins this week kicking it to him ,

        Derek · 01/08/2018 at 09:06

        I don’t have him, but he does have such a good run ahead of him, team will be kicking it to him to make sure he wins the Colman.

    Russty_ · 31/07/2018 at 23:39

    almost 37000 have him now so not really a pod, Harris Andrews is a pod.

      Michael · 01/08/2018 at 20:12

      37000, out of 190,000 I'd say in my league he's a a PoD, me only one who's got him.

    Michael · 01/08/2018 at 20:09

    Brayshaw is a champ been getting plenty of mids time, don't see it changing, got him around 400,000, no complaints here I'm ranked around 270ish.

Mason · 31/07/2018 at 22:43

I don’t have cripps and I am guying for league wins… do I definetly need him?
I have 3 trades left with less than 25k left so I’d have to make 2 trades to get him (Lachie Murphy to Lienert, Parker/dusty to cripps)
Thoughts?

    Patch · 01/08/2018 at 22:01

    If you're in an elimination final, then yarp. Still got the one injury trade.

      r_calve · 01/08/2018 at 23:08

      GET. CRIPPS. NOW.

Jordan · 01/08/2018 at 06:29

My fwd line is Henry, McLean, D.Smith, Gray, Walters.
Who should I get at D6?

    Matt · 01/08/2018 at 22:12

    Westhoff

    r_calve · 01/08/2018 at 23:08

    the chad

BamBam · 01/08/2018 at 06:45

Trade Luke Ryan or Savage to Lloyd?

    Ricardo · 01/08/2018 at 10:15

    Ryan got 140 recently. I think you should stick with him. Could win you a final

JAMBGEN · 01/08/2018 at 09:53

is lachie murphy to lienert a good trade considering I need money to get cripps in? i would have 2 trades left if i made that one

    r_calve · 01/08/2018 at 11:20

    ye

MaxGawn · 01/08/2018 at 10:17

Keep Paul Ahern to make more money or trade
Have 160k in the bank

    Dogsdik · 01/08/2018 at 18:38

    Keep

Da_Boysh · 01/08/2018 at 12:43

My worst players are Hurley, Shaw and Walters.. if I have no injuries I can upgrade two by downgrading Ahern next week.

Who should I prioritise?

    Patch · 01/08/2018 at 22:00

    Walters, Shaw, Hurley for mine but I'm rather biased towards the Bear. Probably Shaw the safer. I dunno. But Walters has been garbage

      Da_Boysh · 02/08/2018 at 12:14

      Thanks Patch, what do you think of going Walters to hawkins leaving me with one trade and 14k in the bank. I think hawkins will be too expensive after this week?

Stacky23 · 01/08/2018 at 14:17

ok 2 trades, 300k left and in no elimination finals this week, with higgins and de goey injured for least another week is fielding ahern in fwd and going fritsch to macrae at his cheapest a decent trade, lets me if i win hold a trade next week or if i lose can trade de goey if he doesnt play
secondly if i have to trade de goey who is the best out of dunkley, mcdonald, mengola, bruest as pods

    I’m a patriot · 01/08/2018 at 15:07

    Well thaught out
    If you loose and de goey don’t get up
    I’d choose mengola out of those choices
    Prelims and grand final he plays in Geelong against freo and Gold Coast.
    I might have just decided to trade Walters

      Stacky23 · 01/08/2018 at 15:17

      Haha, think im stuck with walters for the rest of the year so hope he turns it around for final few rds

        Russty_ · 01/08/2018 at 15:28

        I'd probably hold Stacky and even if you lose, you'll come back strong next week getting those 2 back and still have 2 trades..Fritsch is playing Gold Coast this week so could score well…and Ahern playing Brisbane.

Steve · 01/08/2018 at 14:36

I am playing for league wins.
I have 8 trades left with $98K

Need suggestions please

Yeo, LLyod, Laird, Tuohy, Savage, Mihocek, Mirra, Lynch
Danger, Mitchell, Cripps, Merrett, Dusty, Crouch, Neale, Ahern, Phillips, Barry, Shipley
Gawn, Nankervis, Armatey
Buddy, Smith, McDonald,McLean, Walters, Gray, Battle, Keeffe

Mihocek needs to go , Double trade and bring in a defender or use McDonald and bring in a forward this week.
Next week bring in Macrea.

Any thoughts?

    Russty_ · 01/08/2018 at 15:18

    Hi Steve, 8 trades is a lot for this time of year, I'd offload Mirra to Lienert to make 100K and then maybe Buddy to Heeney or Menegola.
    Then upgrade someone from your backline next week..and look towards upgrading Nank at some point too.

      Steve · 01/08/2018 at 15:38

      Do any of you want to take some of those trades off my hands? lol

      Was thinking Mihocek might be more of an issue after last weeks injury.

      Thank you for the suggestions

        Russty_ · 01/08/2018 at 15:57

        Yeah well he could go this week if he doesn't get up and then you'd have more money to do the things you want to..I'd love a few trades if you're giving them away lol

    Patch · 01/08/2018 at 21:59

    EIGHT TRADES?! Can I have one?

    Bang bang on the trades mate.

Dusted · 01/08/2018 at 15:35

Playing a must win elimination, 2 trades left and $24k. My weakest link is Tim Kelly.
Team:
Yeo, Simpson, Laird, Mcdonald, Hurley, Brayshaw (Keefe, Austin)
Danger, Oliver, Mitchell, Cripps, Gaff, Cogniglio, Martin, T Kelly. (Ahern, Spargo, J Smith)
Gawn, Nank, (Jones)
Mundy, Gray, Heeney, Smith, Westoff, Mclean, (Walters, Smith)
Do I use 2 trades and trade T Kelly for Mcrae and Austin to Lienert or 1 Trade and Trade T.Kelly to Josh Kenedy is the question. Or take the chance T Kelly will get a better score than last week.
I lost to the same opponent last week so I need a different result. Advice is very welcolme please.

    How many Leagues are you in Dusted and what positions are you in if you're in others?…If it's just the one, maybe do what you suggested but you could also play Ahern onfield, plus, Kelly got 2 tons before that 47.
    Or you could trade Tim Smith out for a non playing DPP fwd/mid and loop Kelly with Ahern, start with Kelly on the bench.
    If Smith tons up, swap Ahern back to your fwd line with your non playing DPP.
    You could also swap Ahern with Walters and trade out Walters for Macrae and Austin out for Lienert..and leave kelly on the mid bench.

      Dusted · 01/08/2018 at 16:35

      Thanks Rusty
      they are good options. I am in 3 leagues total. 2 of which are elimination. the other is not so important and I have a second chance.
      1 of the eliminations is the main reason I play supercoach. Cheers

        Russty_ · 01/08/2018 at 16:52

        No worries mate..sorry meant to say if Kelly tons up..good luck whatever you decide.

    Patch · 01/08/2018 at 21:58

    Kelly cooked for mine – pull the trigger. Part of me wants to suggest Beams but I won't do that to you

      Dusted · 02/08/2018 at 14:50

      Thanks guys. Beams there's one I hadn't thought of.

Captain Redbeard · 01/08/2018 at 17:12

This is your captain speaking. Anyone who is riding on SC_Wow bandwagon on the road to number 1, please fasten your seatbelts. There is some strong turbulance expected in the next 4 weeks

Derek · 01/08/2018 at 19:21

LEK actually HAS DRich in his team!

I just thought it was his wicked sense of humour. I did think the joke was starting to wear a bit.

But I played against him on the weekend I could believe I saw DRich in the team sheet just before we shook hands.

I can only assume he will re-unite the great defensive duo of BSmith and DRich this week.

Great casting of the Pod fellas. I actually liked the canned laughter in episode 1, bring it back.

    Frozzy · 01/08/2018 at 20:20

    Did you beat him Derek?

      Derek · 02/08/2018 at 09:38

      I did but in the end he made finals and I didn’t.

    Patch · 01/08/2018 at 21:56

    I KNOW, RIGHT?? Genuinely flabbergasting but practice what you preach.

    Cheers mate – even if the canned laughter passed the pub test, which according to a lot it didn't, it takes waaaay too long to edit in.

    Lekdog · 02/08/2018 at 19:00

    I had talked him up so much I had to bring him in, he did well for three weeks…

Hawks · 01/08/2018 at 20:18

Is there any update on Nat Fyfe's return?

Any info appreciated

    Russty_ · 01/08/2018 at 20:28

    Still listed as 2-3 weeks, recovery process was slower than expected.

      Hawks · 01/08/2018 at 20:40

      Thanks, looks like he has to go.

      I'm thinking of going to Macrae, but if I go to Ablett I can also upgrade Nank to Grundy, but that would leave me with no trades left, but a bench full of decent coverage should injuries occur.

      Def – Lynch
      Mid – 2 of Rockliff, Shuey, Boak, and Giro
      Fwd – Billings

    Lekdog · 02/08/2018 at 19:01

    Would they bother playing him again this year?

      Russty_ · 02/08/2018 at 19:10

      I don't reckon Lek..Sandi too..what's the point.

Dave2008 · 01/08/2018 at 21:40

D Yeo Laird Simpson Hurley Shaw Ryan (Murphy Durman)
M Mitchell Cripps Pendles Danger M Crouch Kelly Martin Gaff (Edwards: NPP to loop Spargo Powell)
R Gawn Goldy (Olango)
F Smith Heeney Westhoff Gray McClean Petracca (T Smith Ahern)

5 TRades 177 k in the bank, double chance and going for league.

This week my opponent and I have these differences:

Lloyd
Hurley
Roughy
Westhoff
Billings
Heeney
Buddy
McClean
Kennedy
Sidebottom
Coniglio
Kelly
McDonald
Ryan
Walters
Petracca

My strategy is to use NPP loopholes in defence and forwards lines with Petracca and Ahern and Ryan and Hurley in defence.
So to block his most dangerous difference?

OPTION a

Murphy and Durman out for Lloyd and NPP McDaid (NPP to loop) with 2 600 left

OPTION B
Murphy and Durman out for T McDonald and McDaid (NPP to loop) with 117 600 left

    Patch · 01/08/2018 at 21:57

    Option A – not having Lloyd scares me

      Dave2008 · 01/08/2018 at 22:42

      Thanks Patch! Love the podcast, put the kids to sleep with it. I would love to leave the trades as late as possible but Sydney game is Sat night.

NoLanguage · 02/08/2018 at 01:25

Need some advice guys!

5 trades left finished on top in my leagues and 1206 overall.

Weak links are Dusty, Savage and Ryan plus I have Higgins missing this week. Thinking the following…

Dusty to MacRae?
Savage/Ryan to Gov/TMac?

Can afford two this week to set me up for a prelim and I'm backing Ahern to fill the Higgins void this week.

Would love to hear your thoughts on the above trades. Cheers

    Russty_ · 02/08/2018 at 01:46

    Sounds great to me NL, good position to be in with 5 left and all double chances in your leagues, noice one!

      NoLanguage · 02/08/2018 at 07:56

      Cheers Russty 🙂

      The Dusty MaCrae trade is locked, just not sure whether to grab Gov or TMac for Savage? Might give Ryan one more chance with that high ceiling.

neil demons delight · 02/08/2018 at 12:42

Russty check out Neil's Crystal Ball on FantasySuperCoach Did I nail it?

    Russty_ · 02/08/2018 at 16:31

    Pretty close if not right on mate, no Dees for flag this year? 😉

      neil demonsdelight · 02/08/2018 at 17:59

      Just couldn't do it,but GAWNY must be a brownlow chance ,Oliver a Normie and HOGES a coleman . and some one said the Saints will make the eight if only NDD

        Russty_ · 02/08/2018 at 18:25

        Think that guy was dreamin!…lol

Mark Fawcett · 03/08/2018 at 08:58

Need some help guys:) Do I swing McDonald forward and play him over Hogan and have Hogan and Ahern on the bench and then play Webster on the field? Few options to go with and not trusting Hogan too much, but then again, will he score more than Webster? Too many decisions!!! AAggghhhh….. Want to get into the top 50 this week and this is make or break IMO

Def: Lloyd, Yeo, Laird, Simpson, Brayshaw, McDonald (Webster, Austin)
Mid: Mitchell, Cripps, Dangerfield, Oliver, Merrett, Pendlebury, Kelly, Coniglio (Giro, J.Smith, Daniels)
Ruck: Gawn, Martin (McInerney)
Fwd: Smith, Wingard, Hogan, Heeney, McLean, Gray (Ahern, Keeffe)

Ff84 · 03/08/2018 at 11:46

Hey guys need some suggested tweaks to my side which is as follows:

Lloyd, yep, laird, Hurley, Simpson, tmac, Cole, j smith
Mitchell, cripps, danger, j kelly, gaff, Martin, neale, Oliver, giro, markle, barry
Gawn, bank, English
Smith, Hoff, heeney, McLean, Franklin, gray, Ahern, t smith

Have $92k and 6 trades. Initial thoughts are torn between trading Franklin, or upgrading nank and dusty.

    Mark Fawcett · 03/08/2018 at 12:24

    I'd definitely be upgrading Nank before Franklin mate. Franklin can go off at any time even though he's having a bad season, still has some good scores on the board. 6 trades I'd be looking at a downgrade as well. Goldstein would be my bet for up to 580 you can afford. Or downgrade T.Smith to a cheap rookie, maybe Daniels or Petruccelle which could get you to Grundy, i think by calculations. Or downgrade Giro or Smith in your backline. 6 trades is heaps for this time of year mate. Go all in:)

      Ff84 · 03/08/2018 at 18:53

      Thanks might loop buddy this week and upgrade nank. Will downgrade and leave some money for later on!

cmazza12 · 03/08/2018 at 12:43

Got 4 trades left. Currently been posting 2400-2500 so I'm happy atm but got an elimination final this week
Definently trading logan austin for lienart. But not sure who to upgrade riley bonner for.
Options are Heath Shaw, Shannon Hurn or Jeremy Mcgoverm or any other ideas

    Mark Fawcett · 03/08/2018 at 13:17

    Hurn, Hurn, and Hurn!!! Just in case, HURN!!!
