Trade Talk – Finals W2, 2013

Written by Motts on August 12 2013

If you’re reading this, chances are you made it through Week 1 of the Finals. I’m guessing if you were good enough to finish Top 4 and you won then you’ll be sitting back this week to gleefully watch some of the lesser lights in your league slug it out.

For the rest of us though (and yes I’m still alive in my cash league after disposing of 7th on the weekend), who’s coming and who’s going?

  1. 1 game for me this week.. 1 trade left.. do i pull the trigger on Titch now? Or wait another wk.. I am playing him M8 atm.. I also have Crouch on the bench..

    $$$ in my bank.. $173,800

    Titch – $397,600 B/E 139
    Crouch – $421,600 B/E 57

    Here are the 2 trade options I have singled out. Not taking Watson. Already have Goddard, HepD & Hibs..

    Dangerfield B/E 129
    Dogs (A), Demons (H) & Eagles (A)

    Cotchin B/E 96
    Carlton, GWS (A), Bombers

    I am in the Prelims in my other 4 leagues, but want to off load Titch now before he plummets even more, and a potential price rise out of the 2 listed above, which COULD make them outta reach for me next wk..

    Thumbs Up – Do it!!!! Plan ahead & good thinking..

    Thumbs Down – Don’t do it.. Trade Crouch the week after, with his price rise gives u more $$$, more $$$ = more options..

  2. I won’t be trading this week. Have the week off after a great 5/5 wins ๐Ÿ˜€

    However would be looking to getting Jobe in, if you’re trading this week.

    GAZ to pump a 200+ against Port!

  3. Thinking of trading Nic-Nat to Roughead, as i have been playing Witts as R2.

    What are the chances of Roughead being rested in the next 3 weeks?

  4. Actually I would really appteciate some advice on my fwd line. I have Dusty, JJK, Cox, Rocky, StevieJ, Zorko, Staker and B.Kennedy.

    I am concerned with the form of JJK, Zorko and Staker. Although Bris do play GWS this week.

    3 trades. 80k. Knock out final. Any advice out there?

  5. Looks like I’m the only one to lose in my main league

    Double trade this week as it’s elimination (can’t go out in straight sets after cruising at no.1 for the last 3mths)

    DEF – Godd, Hanley, Hepp, Shaw, Gibbs, Dixon (Clisby, Webster)
    MID – Pend, Abb, Swan, Cotch, JPK, Danger, Priddis, T Mitch (Crouch, Hrov)
    RUC – Mins, Maric (Gawn, McBean)
    FWD – Cox, Mart, Rock, Bart, Zork, S John (Staker, Daniher)

    Got $371k in the bank

    Thinking of upgrading T Mitch and Zorko. With $1.1m should be able to get a couple of good players

    TU – Walker/Barlow
    TD – There’s a better FWD and MID combo (and I’ve posted them below)

  6. Chocolates to boiled lollies me… no sooner did I get within arms reach of the top 1000 it’s been a very slippery slope on the way down.

    Going to have to do things the hard way in the primary league with a lot of under performing players.

    I don’t forsee much improvement but with only 2 trades and 70-odd in the bank I can hope for Franklin and Ibbotson to return this week and see if I can’t make something of Nicholls’ stagnant cash and get whoever I can into the side.

    At the moment I’m favouring:

    Nicholls to McBean
    Hrovat to Selwood

    See if I can’t jag an extra 100 somehow!

  7. No trades left for me so it’s just a case of wait and see which of my injured players make it back into the side this weekend for the semi finals. I have Buddy, Birchill and Ibbo waiting in the wings, so hopefully a few (if not all) of those boys will pull on the boots.

    If you are considering a trade this week, ensure that you leave yourself with a reasonable playing emergency to loophole or cover you if you lose a star. And make sure that if you trade it is truly an upgrade. Trading JJK sideways because he had one bad game may be a rush decision, but if you don’t have Cox, Walker, Rockliff or Stevie J then upgrade away.

    Last but not least, good luck to everyone who is playing an final this coming weekend. I hope that everyone that uses this site as religiously as I do to listen to the thoughts of some of the greats of this SC game (big thanks to Motts, Big Sexy and MJ) gets a leg up on their unenlightened counter parts.

    Cheers

  8. Is Terlich worth having on the field or should I upgrade Clisby so Terlich can be on the bench? If I upgrade Clisby I will have zero trades left but it could be my season on the line as I am playing this week.
    T/U: Hold Terlich
    T/D: Upgrade Clisby

  10. I’m still alive but only because of the double chance. 12 PODs and 11 of them went under par. Can’t help bad luck eh.

    I have more than $300K and 6 trades remaining so can really choose who I want. Trouble is, the guys I had my eye on, like Jack and Harvey, bombed out this week. Huge dilemma on who to trade in this week. I’ll be hanging out for the Movers column this week.

  12. Hey guys
    I have 4 trades left and a full premium team, i have T.mitchell and hrovat on the bench in the mids, but i was thinking of trading those two and bringing in either barlow or griffen and a non playing player to try and get the best out of my mids as, i have lids and s.mitchell who can post some terrible scores. but id be able to loophole them with griffen/barlow to get the maximum points.

    T/U- might as well use trades
    T/D dont waste trades

  13. I’ve got no games this weekend but I would like to get rid of Titch before he goes down more and I was thinking Jobe seeing as he’s so cheap! Let’s me put Smurph on the bench and atm that seems like a win.

    Is the risk of trading when I don’t need to worth it though?

  14. I have the week off this week in all my 4 leagues, $225K in the kitty and 4 trades left.

    T/U: Trade

  16. Who to get in the backline?
    T/U: Malceski
    T/D: Harry Taylor
    My backline is: Hanley, Shaw, Heppell, Houli ‘Traded in player’ (Clisby, Wilson)
    I don’t want to get Goddard because my opponent has him so I am looking for a POD. I can get anyone so comment any other suggestions. Thanks.

  17. Only 1 trade left and 1 upgrade left, Pittard ($135,700) in the salary cap:
    TU: Trade this week for Dixon
    TD: Take a gamble and wait on Hanley, Murphy or Thompson to decrease in price
    I’ve got the week off in 1 league and in the semi-finals in 2 leagues.

  19. Hey guys, I’ve got two trades left and I’m not sure whether to just downgrade this week (Nicholls -> grundy) and then upgrade Mitchell the next week to montagna/premo. Should I just downgrade this week and upgrade the next or should I do both this week to get rid of Mitchell and then ride my luck with injuries for the remaining 2 weeks?

    T/U -> one trade this week
    T/D -> two this week

    Thanks
