    Very happy because I made the granny of the cash league hopefully the likes of Ward, Zorko and Dahlhaus perform better next week

  2. Its high noon in a two-horse (and one donkey) town over here in Greece. Perfect time for an ol’ fashioned hangin’!

    The following varmints are ordered to line up for execution:
    Buddy, Gibson (both with suffering first), Goldy, Rance, Dusty, Ward, Laird, Zorko, Dahlhaus, Mitchell.

    2331/Danger

    Won only 3 / 8 Prelims, but lost the two that count. Expect ranking to drop from 190.

    I am one happy camper.
    I have qualified for 2 GF’s and 5 consolation GF’s.
    I only made finals in 6th & 8th positions (only making top 8 on %) and have made it thru.
    One league is LOEC and the other is in top 400 leagues.
    Had a definite strategy of matching my oppositions VC and C as I was projected to win by about 90. In the end it was Johanisson plus 99 vs Merrett & Dahlhaus at the end. Thank you heaps Mr Johannison

  4. Managed a win by 14 (scored 2320) in cash league despite having ward, zac williams, dahl and buddy (with halls 100 on bench) in my unique players list.
    The Saturday night games got me over line, pendles, wines and gray vs jenkins, B crouch and westhoff.

  7. 2403 / Priddis

    I won 3 out of 4 major prelims and 2 out of 3 minor.
    Well done Matteo winning in our minor prelim in SCT standard 2.

    Playing conservatively too guarantee wins probably cost me 13 pts taking Phillips 103 and benching Selwood 116 , but gained 2pts taking Priddis VC score as I would have played Gawn as Captain.
    I did lose by 20 pts in my major prelim in a Top 100 league though so Danger as Captain and Selwood on field would have got me over the line. I thought I was well and truly beaten in that game last night so had conceded it.

    I was also very lucky in Shaggis league winning by a point again after winning the Elimination Final against Thommo by a point.
    Good Luck Shaggi next week who I meet in the Grand Final!

    Also Good Luck Yiorgi in our Grand Final and looking forward to our Qualifying final rematch.

    Finally Bad luck to players who lost their prelims and Good Luck to everyone who made Grand Finals.

    Absolutely stoked, grand final here we come! Neale, Gray, Wells, Montagna and Merrett all went huge. Wishing I went Hall over Dollhouse though.

    Very happy with my score this week. Should get me within my goal of top 1000 for the year. But who cares about that? I managed to pull out 5 of 5 league wins! ๐Ÿ˜€ 4 top 8 finals and 1 bottom 8. I dodged a bullet with resisting the temptation to trade Wells for Buddy. Thanks for the thumbs down on that one guys!

    There’s really only 2 league GFs I care about next week and they both have the SCT name on them and I have sneaky 2 trades left. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Well played Fiona. I get to play you in Std 2 next week and also have sneaky 2 trades but not the way I planned them. Got the fixture from a computer this morning that does not automatically update time to central standard so I thought I had till 1:10 pm when in fact it was 12:40 pm and missed trading out Petracca and Silvagni for Dahl and a floating donut to capture Lycett’s score. Didn’t miss Dahl’s score and snuck in without Lycett.

      Good luck next week but I don’t think you will need it because your scores over the paste weeks have been heaps better than mine – I’m just stoked to make the Grannie and will still look forward to it!!

    Made 3 out 3 Grand finals (including a prelim draw with the Phantom).
    Carried Jack Stevens through prelims – one trade left – Jack now gets the Tijuana for a mid that can score more than 77.

    Stoked to have won 5/7 prelims when I made a pretty huge error and ended up getting Paine’s score instead of Dahlhaus’ (didn’t realise Paine was playing). Won one final by 6 paltry points and the two I lost, I lost by a fair margin so Dahlhaus wouldn’t have saved me.

    Just out of interest, who DOESN’T have Zorko? That POD cost me one of my finals; didn’t see that coming.

  12. 2443/Pendles (nice one after stuffing up Shuey last week)

    Made the difference and won 3/3 plus a minor against Chillo – sorry champ.
    Stuffed up trades (story under Fiona) and went into 2/3 behind by 40 odd with JJ vs Dahl so thought it was all over. Came back from shopping to find I owe JJ several beers.

    Had 14 raise the bat but only 10 on the field!! My lucky week I think.

    Lost all 3 finals so gutted at the moment. So disappointing when so called Premiums don’t score like you hoped they would – Gibson’s 43 and Zorko’s 54 and even Ward’s 70 cost me big time. Wouldn’t have made any difference if I’d chosen Danger as Captain instead of Gawn either, as lost all 3 by well over the 40 points. Still had 2 trades up my sleeve but didn’t have any real weaknesses (I thought) and wanted to hold those trades in case needed for injuries – oh well, first year in a few I haven’t had one team in the Grand Final, can enjoy next weekend now instead of continually checking progress scores and stressing over my selections. Good luck to those remaining Coaches!

    Gutted as I lost the prelim that counted…my cash league.

    If I had captained Pendles I would have won. And as for bloody Zorko the ‘disappearing act’…so much for that POD…

    That now makes it 2 years in a row I’ve lost in the prelim! Last year I lost by 10pts to the eventual league winner. If I’d have played him in the grand final the following week I would’ve smashed him by 500! Such is my luck…

    Oh well, guess there’s always next year. Time for me to start planning for 2017! And cheers for the sage info & advice on this site throughout the year…may this site live on for many years to come!

  15. No good this week for the Burblers’. Managed to Bench Gibbo’s 43 and take O.Mac’s 85, but copped Buddy’s hip injury. Was chasing points all weekend then. Gawn as C didn’t quite work.

  16. 2325/Rockliff

    Somehow managed to win 3/4 semis and into the grand final in CattasSCTchallange, SCTalkStandard 6 and The Team@SCT 1. Had the 2nd/3rd worst score in each of the above but was lucky enough to scrape a win, guess thats SC for you sometimes! Switched Danger to Rocky as captain minutes before bounce down to ensure the wins as the others also had Rocky.

    Yeo, Laird, Rance, McVeigh, Ward, Rocky, Goldstein, Zorko, Martin and Franklin all under performed this week. They had better all rock up next weekend.

    Cheeky trade or two up my sleeve to assess teams and move on any dead weight before the final round of the season.

    Best of luck to all those who remain!

    Made the grand final in the only league I was alive in, but the expense of my 12 year old son, and I feel bad…. well, sort of :)))

  18. I’m out, beaten and slipped outside the top 5,000. Hopefully I can push back inside next week to finish the year off.

    Very happy with the year and starting to understand how it all works, mind you I think I had a good run of luck with injuries. Pocketed 1k, so I could’ve ended up outside the top 100k and I’d still count this year as a success lol

    Cheers to all the contributors to the site.

    First time this year that the whole team has fired. First time i haven’ t been embarrassed with my score.
    Plenty of luck too as Lycett & Collins excelled as subs for Bartel & Kerridge.
    (needless to say Lycett will start this week ;)-)
    Stuck fat with Wells & Hall all year – will they reward me again next week!?
    3 senior g/finals coming up.

  20. 2391/ Danger… Lost 2/2 and the dream is over… but there’s always next year. Thanks to the SC talk community for making it such an enjoyable season. Special mentions to Juddlow, The Good Father and Nath the Statsman. Good luck to all those who’ve got a chance of going all the way.

    So many passengers this week. Phillips on the bench out scored two mids.
    Lost 2 of 3
    Ranked slipped out 4522, disappointed to say the least.
    Some serious thinking about midfield for next season, I sense a changing of the guard.
