The TEAM 2018 – Rd5

Written by Schwarzwalder on April 27 2018

Welcome back to the TEAM!  A collection of the most woke Supercoach minds in modern history………….

Overall Ranking: 21 431

Trades Left: 27

Remaining Salary: $220 000

 

TRADING HISTORY

After Rd3 L.Ryan (WCE) & L.Davies-Uniacke (NTH) OUT for E.Richards (WBD) & J.Henry (GEE) IN

Rd4 Josh Kelly (GWS) OUT for Stephen Coniglio (GWS) IN

A little disappointing last week from the TEAM.  Just the one League win is a little too little for the goals we’ve set out for the TEAM.  Changes need to be made to the following line-up…………

 

The good news is that we’ve missed most of the major injury victims till now & we have plenty of trades and cash in hand.  The forward line is looking fragile with those rookies set to miss.  So there it is, Coaches…….what changes would you make to the TEAM?  It’s your job to convince the Coaching Staff in the comments below.  I’ll try and get some polls happening (Captains Poll is already below) later tonight, I don’t expect many Dogs/Blues options in many trades (unless Garlett absolutely must be traded out tonight).  Fire away with your trade suggestions……….

**UPDATE at 7pm on 27/4/18**

Gartlett to Guelfi……the move has been made!  That leaves us with a bank of $315k.  Judging by the comments, I don’t expect too much opposition there.  Now it’s a case of upgrading Hibberd or Bonner to a premium DEF or MID.  There is enough cash to go Hibberd to Dangerfield…….just sayin’ 😉 Finlayson can cover Hibbo till we bring in another DEF premo.  That’s my two cents worth anyway.  We’ll see what the Coaching Staff come up with.

  1. Hibberd may score well again sometime this season, but with His role change he’s leaking too many points & money!

    Hibberd out < Simpson in

    Swap Holman on the ground for Banfield as emg

    Garlett out < Guelfi in

    Cheers Catta

    1. I wonder who the people were voting Banfield ahead of Holman on the ground last week
      Anyway, anyone with Garlett should be trading to Guelfi, that’s obvious. Not sure with the other trade. Bonner and Hibbo need to go, but do we pass up on the available bubble boys or upgrade to Yeo??

      1. Problem is Daisy, Hibberd has a be of 153 so he could be $420-$430,000 by next week. Bonner has a be around 60 I believe so he can possibly wait a week to be given the boot IMO

        Agreed on the Banfield / Holman call

    2. Its 35 years since I told anyone “told you so” but history will say I was huge on Hibberd to Simpson after R2. Bit late now
      So its Garlett to Guelfi…not sure Higgins JS is good unless he kicks goals each week…also look who Tigers are bringing in this week. Then its Bonner to Yeo. Might be controversial but we gotta get those prems in and we still have excellent def bench cover, particularly with Finlayson in mids. Yeo unlikely to ever be cheaper. If most agree he is a top 6 def, if not now, then when ?

      1. I suggested the Hibbo to Simmo trade for the TEAM as I myself made it also, but when I did I got about 100 thumbs down! Whoops!!

  2. Garlett to Guelfi looks like the best downgrade as Garlett has been dropped and coming off a score of 21 his cash generation has hit a brick wall.
    Guelfi looks the best in just because of job security and if we wanted Higgins we would probably prefer him in the mid so we can switch him and Fogarty between line

  3. If only we used that 220k to upgrade Bonner to Gray/Merrett last week, we could have had the luxury of a double downgrade this week. Hmm…
    How about something left field and trade Garlett/Hibberd for Guelfi/Dangerfield? It would be good to get Merrett in at this value, but Dangerfield would make an impact since we have so much coin sitting there doing nothing

  4. Out: Bonner, Gartlett
    In: R Gray, M Guelfi

    Involves moving Finlayson to def, Fogarty to the midfield during the trade of Bonner thus allowing Holman to be fielded and Bonner traded to a premium forward such as R Gray.

      1. The round 10 bye situation was only a problem for Ryder as we’d have no backup, but we would have bench options for Gray. Having said that, I wouldn’t bring him in this week fearing the Jacobs tag

  5. Hibbo to Merrett (via Finlayson swing)
    Garlett to Guelfi

    Next week look at upgrading Bonner or rookie forward.

    1. I concur…i dont think we should pass this $$$ up unless we think cole is a better option if he plays this week and next..

    2. Missed our chance on double downgrade when we didn’t do an upgrade last week. Plus we can get Danger this week

  6. For mine:
    – I think it’s optimal to trade Gartlett to Guelfi. Gartlett’s not playing and has plateaued for at least the next 3 weeks. Guelfi is probably the most likely to play and score ok.
    – Lets move Fogarty on and bring in a fallen premium. Around $470k to spend.

    This increases our premiums in the forward line and more importantly ditches 2 non-playing rookies. Bring on making money.

    We should have ditched Hibberd a while back, but we’ve hung on so I think that means we have to keep hanging on. He may get his first 100+ game against his former team.

    It’d be nice to bring in Zerrett, Yeo or even Danger, but we need to get things sorted across the lines first and that means the forward line tinkering.

  8. We are running out of time. I think we agree to do the garlett/guelfi trade before tonight, then we can continue to discuss (argue !!).

    Think we will need to vote on the other options.

  9. By the looks of it:
    Garlett – Guelfi LOCK
    Then decide who to trade out of Hibberd, Bonner, Fogarty, Brayshaw. And who to bring in out of Simpson, Merrett, Dangerfield, Gray (Looks like we’ll miss the boat on bringing in Simpson though)

  10. Would like Hibberd to Oliver, via Finlayson for me. Should really be Danger but Rd14 then becomes increasingly difficult doesn’t it?
    Hmmmmmmm.
    Holman > Banfield, onfield swap.
