  1. In a rivalry match this week so news of Gray being out is not good (rival doesn’t have him).

    I’ve cooked up the below plan in response. Just not sure if I’m thinking straight or panicking somewhat.

    Burn Van Berlo early and go to the Bont (Gray on to MID bench)
    BGoodes to a non-playing rookie for the cash and loophole

    Allows me to bring in a premium forward for Gray. Means I play Vandenburg on field instead of Lonie. And I can loophole my DEF rookies to get the best score out of McIntosh, Saad and Oxley.

    Is this a legitimate response to my situation, or should I step away from the computer?

  4. Similar query to jess:

    T/U – Trade out Lambert and get Krakouer in this week and hence have the ability to loophole Hogan and Krakouer with Gray.

    T/D – Wait and assess Krakouer this week before his bubble round next week.

  5. Have gone Bartel to Bont, this gives me the funds to consider trading KK (not performing as hoped) to Brodie Smith, Heath Shaw or Alex Rance. I am leaning towards Smith. Any thoughts?

  6. Looking at trading out the injured Wallis this week, for either Bontempelli or Ellis-Yolmen. Is generating cash more important at this stage, or should I trade up to a premium?
    TU: Ellis Yolmen / Bontempelli – to generate cash
    TD: Watson / Sloane / Selwood – need to get a premium in
    Thoughts appreciated. Currently have Fyfe, Danger, Griffen & Swan only

  9. Making just the one trade this week, which trade looks better;

    TU – Sheed to Fyfe (96k spare)

  10. I need someone to clarify the loophole…….
    Grays now out (Saturday night) and he’s my only non-player, so I can make Swanny (Saturday arvy) VC, and any of Sloane/Fyfe/ Selwood captain right? If swan scores big, I can put the C on gray onfield, and get the emergency score? If swan faltersโ€ฆ. I leave the C on my C.
    Correct?

  11. Who should I trade in this week out of

    TU – Ellis Yolman BE -76 OR
    TD – Bontempelli BE -19

    Can’t believe how many hours I spend changing my mind and hitting the reverse button – almost preferred it when once trades were done, they were done and TOO BAD!

  12. With Gray out, who do I play as F6?
    Hogan slips into my F5, so it’s either Krak (thumbs up) or Clarke (thumbs down)

  13. I have 1 more trade left this week and have been thinking about trading Parker and I know his has gotten 30+ disposals twice but I just can’t see his efficiency higher and thinking of getting players whose prices are going to rise.
    TU- Just Hold him
    TD- TRADE HIM
    Thoughts?

  14. My pre-lockout thought is that I have no clue what the frick I’m doing.
    Have traded Bartel out for Bontempelli, Sloane and Brodie Smith about sixteen times each, and reversed it each time. Right now Bartel is still sitting at F6.
    I might try tea leaves or drawing names out of a hat.

  15. Trade Minson?

    If it wasn’t for Gray not playing TBC would have made himself useful, but now it’s either trade Minson or trade Lamb.

  16. Holding Bartel then hopefully trading yo krakour if he does well. This frees cash for premium mid that I would have waited for. Instead wait for a fwd upgrade when a clear keeper pops up?
    TU – yep
    TD – na

  17. Didn’t need to make trades but now I see the weirdest omission ever… Will Minson out?!?!?

    Do I trade him or not?

  18. Anzac day versus the bombers might be a big ask of a rookie and McIntosh named on the wing decided it for me.
