Written by Motts on June 7 2011

The Movers has been abridged today. Motts is very busy going through all the applications to be part of The League of Extraordinary Coaches next year. If you’re keen to be part of what I’m expecting will be The Greatest Supercoach League of All Time, email me (motts@supercoachtalk.com) with your average so far this year and what psuedonym you use if you comment on the site.

Thrillers

Andrew Swallow ($496,300, 193, 114.6, 14)

Gary Ablett ($566,300, 154, 121.12, 123)

Scott Pendlebury ($540,400, 149, 126.10, 79)

Honourable mentions: Marc Murphy (unlucky to miss out on a top billing – has averaged 140 over his last 3), Dale Thomas, Joel Selwood, Travis Boak, Luke Hodge, Sam Mitchell, Matt Priddis, Ryan Griffen, Jarrad McVeigh, and Nick Dal Santo.

Chillers

  1. Do you think she Swallow brothers will end up playing on the same team one day?

    Thumps up – Yes

    Thumbs down – No

    Comments stating either way also would be good!

  3. This is a tad off topic, but I see nowhere else to bring up this topic.. Is anyone else starting to see the logic in downgrading Sandi -> Vardy??

    You pocket an enormous 400k in one trade. With this amount of coin, you can make a number of upgrades. For example, I have 2 back, 1 mid and 1 forward upgrade to do until my whole side is premium. I could do this with 1 single downgrade trade, whereas normally I would have to make around 3 downgrade trades in order to make 4 upgrades. That saves me at least 2 trades and allows me to keep guys such as Darling/Harris/Stanley as bench cover for the whole year, rather than having blokes that may be in and out of the senior side come SC finals time, when bench cover is paramount.

    At the moment there doesn’t look to be any viable downgrade options, it’s basically just trade in hope. So to make any upgrade I would just have to downgrade a cashcow to a rookie who may or may not get a game. Zac Smith is also arguably in the top 3 2nd ruck options in the comp at the minute, so it’s not as if you are losing that much by continuing to play him anyway. By the time Sandi comes back, which I think will be after his bye, that is a long time with that much money wasted..

    Thoughts???

  5. Is it possible that G.Ablett will be the most expensive player by years end? Playing for GCS. That would be incredible.

  6. I like the way of thinking with bench players half points and choose your own team layout eg.seven forwards eight mids, three rucks, four backs different ball game
    thumbs up could work
    Thumbs Down stick to supercoach it’s good that opponents can get donuts and also you can’t reward people for mediocre trade/bench selections

  7. Pendles v Swan
    120 v 166
    162 v 152
    94 v 108
    132 v 163
    130 v 106
    103 v 104
    Bye
    109 v 98
    124 v 80
    138 v 86
    149 v 94

    I’d say that there’s little evidence to say that Pendles scores are high because Swan’s are low. In each of Swan’s three 150+ games, Pendles has scored 120+.

    Also worth noting how poor Swan’s scores have been if you exclude the three 150+ scores whereas Pendles has seven 120+ scores.

  8. What are your guys thoughts on Cotchin…Currently have a midfield of

    Swan, Mundy, Priddis, Selwood, Goddard, Cotchin.

    Im not sure whether I should keep Cotchin and save the trade or upgrade him to another “premium”.

    Thumbs up: Cotchin is a keeper for the year
    Thumbs down: Have to get rid of him if you’re serious about winning

  9. Thanks guys, I’m thinking of holding on to him for a few more weeks and hopefully Boyd drops down to around 480,000 making it a cheap upgrade.

Motts Movers R11 – The Mids

Written by Motts on June 9 2010

Same format again. 5 bombers I reckon are great value right now and this week’s major downgrade target.

G Ablett ($669,900 $-28,200 ($-74,300), 140.10) – Attention all those who don’t have him. You were looking for the week that he bottomed out? This is it.

T Johnstone ($461,000 $+51,900 ($+71,000), 98.44) – Has come back from an enforced break with a certain caveman look in his eye. Last 2 weeks: 123 & 157.

A Walker ($345,800 $+25,500 ($+77,100), 73.29) – 94 & 107 since returning from injury. Cheap but risky given his history of shoulder problems.

M Robinson ($387,600 $+47,500 ($+115,700), 81.57) – Got dropped for Rounds 5 to 8. Has come back with renewed passion scoring 110, 106 and 105.

B Staker ($424,200 $+45,300 ($+152,400), 80.18) – With the loss of the Brisbane backline (unbelievably McGrath, Drummond, Maguire, Adcock andMerrett are all down right now), he’s been stepping up. Last 3 round average 113.33.

J Gysberts ($129,200 $+0 ($+0), 89.00) – Last chance before he goes up.

  2. I was one of those mugs at the start of the year waiting for Abletts reduction but with a 157 b/e, Still think he has 1 more week left in him. That said, my midfield can’t fit him in with a score of 747 last week & Thompson seems to out of favour with Jesus so may drop further!

    1. Agree, I’m one of those mugs too but seeing him bitch and whine during the quarter time break told me something isn’t right at the Cattery. Why wasn’t he playing in the middle, he spent most of his time in the forward line and that just looked wrong to me. With a B/E Of 157 as Frosty has mentioned I’ll hold out this week and see how the little master goes against the Dons on Saturday night before making my mind up.

      1. It’s amazing that someone with a lowest score of 102 and a highest over 200 would be facing a score of 157 to merely break even. These are the vagaries of the game, but, maybe it suggests that the son of Gary’s price was a little steep to begin with.
        I got on him from the start b/c I considered him, Goddard & Rooey to be unconditional selections. I built my team from there and have been happy with Jesus ever since.
        I’m thinking that this week or next is possibly the cheapest he will be, but even then, @ 670 odd k, anyone will need to give up a couple of pretty decent players to get him, and that total becomes 800 odd k if you wanted to include someone like Jizzbert as the second player.
        I’m glad I don’t have to make that choice.

  3. PA’s R11 Roughie in the Midfield.

    Neville Jetta ($308,900, $+37,300 ($+37,300) 85, R12B/E 35) Ever since being a late replacement for Jake Spencer in Darwin against the Power, Nev hasn’t looked back. With scores of 98, 63 and 94 in he’s last three games and with his Cheap price tag he looks like a nice downgrade option or sideways trade if anyone was thinking along those lines.

    1. Jetta???? Can’t forsee anyone wanting a sideways trade option. These are generally frowned upon by all sundry. As for Jetta as a downgrade option, Gysberts is scoring similarly and is considerably cheaper.

  4. What about David McKay, started the season well with 80,106,115
    then dropped of in round 4 but did have an injury 40, came back in round 9 had quiet game to get back into it 57, but his last 2 scores have been 83 and 85
    ($374,800, $-4,600 ($-41,000)85 RND 12 BE 65)

        1. out of those three, i reckon duffield. Have u gotten gysberts? You could perhaps downgrade a midfield bench player then upgrade maguire to someone like gilbert, fisher etc., unless u have them of course.

          BUt I reckon Duffield will be ur best option out of those three..

    1. Loz, get rid of Goose. His price was maxed out anyway and looks like he may take longer to get back than Higgins. Your fwd bnech is better with Fyfe and Higgins is also MPP

  6. Do you guys think it’s too late to jump of Chapman? Or is it unlikely he’ll keep up form the rest of the season (or even play the rest of the season)?

    1. i dont think its too late at all- he doesnt seem to be dropping off at all, was BOG last week, and hardly ever drops below 100 points…if you can afford him- get him.

  7. Get on Dan Connors this week, still a bargain for a 4th year player, started the season looking the goods before his big pissup. Dominated Coburg since then and if you are looking for a solid downgrade or good bench cover he is the one to go. SHould average 80+ the rest of the year. Carried him the last 8 weeks with only mid emergency martin but didnt cost me anything.
