Late Changes?

Written by Motts on March 25 2011

So there’s less than 10 hours until you’re totally locked out from your side. Will you be making any final changes today? Who’s being gently ushered to the back door and who’s having a guernsey presentation this afternoon?

  1. Motts, question open for discussion. Put Gibbs as VC yesteday and with 138 that is a pretty reasonable captains score. Should I leave my team without a captain or should I bank on Swan putting up more than 138 against a crappy side like Port?

  2. What are people’s thoughts on the absence of Michael Hibberd? Do we think he’s worth hanging onto, or will his injury keep him out for a while? If we get rid of him, who would be some good options to swap for?

  3. heres my dilemma.

    Currently have SWAN in my midfield and playing Conca, Heppel and either Irons or Bewick.
    Swallow (GC) on bench.
    Loaded up my other positions.

    The thing is, Swallow isnt playing this week and ill have 2 weeks to assess his performance before seeing if he is worth picking up. in the meantime, my midfield looks weak.

    Should i:

    a) Keep Swan and have Conca, Heppell, Bewick play with Swallow on the bench.
    OR
    b) Swap Swan for Pendlebury, swap Swallow for Callan Ward, which would give me a stronger midfield to start with, although downgrading Swan to Pendles….Ward will most likely go better than either Heppell or Bewick, and Pendles could easily do as well as Swan if all goes to plan.

    Thoughts?

  7. Selwood or Bartel, I have Selwood at the moment, but downgrading would free up some money to trade Otten… thoughts?

  9. I am stmped on my fourth rookie choice in the forwad line. I have Richardson, Darling and Matera. Considering:
    – Tapscott (not sure on JS)
    – Dixon (good JS, question mark on a decent score)
    – Prestia (not sure he will get a run early)
    – Other?
    Any sugestions.

  12. Hibberd > Pederson
    Puopolo > Coad
    Keeping I Smith for DPP
    Keeping Bewick.
    I can’t see the Doggies kids having regular JS in that midfield. Look at Moles last year. This is Rocket’s last chance to win a flag with them.

  13. I know everyone has been Hibbarding today, but cant find an answer to my question, have in the backline with lower, otten, coad and duigan – any other good options, non-GWS to swap Hibbard for. Going with Hibbard as a trade down option, since he will come in through the VFL and we wont see him till rnd 8 i reckon.

    Any ideas?

  16. A few things…Hibberd has got me reel scared and i dont feel good taking buckley just to preserve the DPP…need more ideas from you guys please. libba is way ahead of wallis in ability to play RIGHT NOW…only, r eade is a twot when it comes to younguns…im gonna back libba, cos hes a tackler. More about Lester please…?anyone. am v worried abt otten but guess hes cheap enough to risk, even as a sub, early days. we always know you cant trust Neil Craig David, thats why i cant make myself take Smith in defence… i def think savage is a possible gun and cashbringer but cant trust jeff kennet or alistair nerdface…pity, id take him otherwise. Is Tapscott really gonna stay in the team? Is bewick? Please discuss…

  18. what do we reckon on atley and mckernan as they r both named to start.. worth having atley in the mid say over bewick and mckernen over someone like buckley in the backline?

  19. cougs – nice thinkin. i get it. i cant be sure otten will get a full game. duigan scored abt 60, leave him, be happy.
    grinder – dont grind out those two, both are duds i reckon. atley is all talk (not his, the medias), and mckernan is a 40pt man every week. buckley is a risk, and may pay off, or may be an early tradewaste..?

  20. Lower and Otten still to pay but have Duigan as an emergency who scored 60 odd. Do i play one of the GC boys and take Duigans points? Gees, Dilemmas …

  21. chose to go with toy actually, probably safer that he will get games. i have the cash to ditch bewick for some1 like gaff? 234k to spend. will zach smith play or should i get pertrie in there in stead of in the foward line?

  22. Adelaide hasn’t settled on a substitute player for its clash with Hawthorn at AAMI Stadium on Saturday night, but Craig has already touted defender/midfielder Andy Otten as a perfect candidate for the role.

    First-round draftee Brodie Smith will make his debut against the Hawks and Craig didn’t rule out easing the dashing wingman into the game as a sub.

    “I don’t think it would be unfair on Brodie. It could be a good way to go,” Craig said.

    “I’ve really enjoyed Brodie’s form in the NAB Cup and he fits in with what our agenda and charter is as well. We want to make up some ground [on the competition] but we also need to keep feeding people into our footy club as well.”

  27. I’m sure you’ve all heard, Neil Craig said that Otten would be the perfect sub. So what are your thoughts?
    Otten in starting line-up: THUMBS UP
    Heppell: THUMBS DOWN

  31. Guys one last thing…
    Out of the four, which of darling, tapscott, dixon and prestia would you take?
    Concerened about prestia and tapscotts JS, opposed to dixon who looks solid, but may have a lower ceiling (like gumbleton)

  32. Today my ins and outs:
    IN: Buckley – Lester – Liberatore – Markovic – Adock
    OUT: Puopolo – Hibberd – I. Smith – Lamb – Shaw

    had to rejig my reserves and in the end was forced to take out Shaw and bring in Adcock to free up some cash in the reserves and still have 90,000 spare, could take Adcock out again for someone but I’ll keep him for now.

  33. It’s only Round 1, don’t go savaging your team for a few ins and outs in Round 1. Stay calm and trust the work you’ve done before now.
    Good Luck to all.

  34. Gaff not playing has thrown a spanner in the works!
    What do you guys think of a trading Gaff upto Liam Shiels? It’s a very unique choice…
    Averaged 100 in the NAB Cup (110 and 90) and is $228,700.
    Will get games and looks to make you some money.
    Having a serious thinkg about this….

    OR:
    I could bring in Callan Ward, will get games and also looks to improve. But that’ll only leave him with $5k in the kitty :\

    Where as Shiels will leave me with $50,000.
