Trade Talk R20

Written by Motts on August 3 2011

Righto, its the last round of the SC regular season. GAJ is out, Sandi’s another week away, the Dogs have the bye…… Aaaaaaagh!

Will you be making some knee jerk decisions this week in order to make the Top 4/8 or is it steady as she goes?

  1. Bailey to young Tippett (ruck & forward)
    Boyd to Pendles or Dal Santo
    Petrie (forward) to swap with young Tippett in the rucks
    I Smith to come off the bench, Tippett benched for good.
    ย 
    Stevie J for captain?
    ย 
    2 trades left after.

    Any thoughts?

  3. Have Boyd and ablett out this week along with a lot of teams. I need to win most likely to finish top 4 and my opponent has Boyd out too but doesn’t have Ablett. I have 8 trades left and 200 000 in the bank. He still has Newman and I’m thinking Newman for S Fisher and Lower for Birchall. Thumbs up for these trades thumbs down Z Smith for Mumford and one of the above trades.

  4. Hey guys, Everyone pumped for finals?
    Having some trouble. Going for League and in my main league i am defiantly going to finish in the top 2.
    I have all premiums in my Forward, Mids and Ruck and an extra m/f premium floating around covering byes and injuries. I have 4 trades left.
    My backline is
    Goddard, Fisher, Gibbs, Delidio, NEWMAN and Heppell.
    (Puopolo, Hibberd, Lester(I know WTF)
    I obviously need to trade newman.
    I have a few options. Trade Hibberd for Adcock (With no cash left) and keep newman just another week or two and assess the best option. And mayby if there is some good news he might be back earlier.
    I could not trade and assess the option next week.
    Or i could trade out Newman and Hibberd. What should i do? Im leaning towards waiting a week. I have an easy fixture this week in all my leagues.
    cheers

  6. just some help with my backline

    im gonna trade in taylor but not sure which cash cow to downgrade.

    duigan, lower, stanley, puopolo.

    im playing only 2 on my field which means there is a bit of cash on my bench

    im thinking either puop or lower. lower for cash reasons, puop because he is on my bench right now. duigan wont get me much cash but has the bye and stanley is playing like a keeper but has some cash to be made too.

    please help

  8. Hey guys

    Backline is also in shambles, have Newman want to trade him out. Only have 27k, fisher seems the best option although I’m thinking at this stage in competition I’d like to be a bit unique. Want to downgrade Otten so I can upgrade Talia. Any good downgrade options??

    Cheers

  9. haha same here i need help with my backline…….with my backline consisting of Deledio, Suckling, Broughton, Adcock, Heppell, Pederson and Lower. I know my defence is terrible:P Im getting rid of Heppell for who??? I want to try and stay away from Fisher and Goddard of possible(due to the fact that like everyone in the top 8 in my league apart from me have him!) and I dont want any players with a final bye……and I have a heap of spare cash so who I should I get?

  10. I think that unique can be a problem. Lots of people pick the popular ones because they are consistently getting big scores. Avoid Goddard and Fisher at your peril.

    It sucks being 6000th for the round when I got 2687, due to everyone having a similar team as me but i would prefer it over a much lower score.

  11. 5 trades left, with Boyd, Cross and now Gablett out I am thinking of using two trades as Z Smith to Lycett and then D Harris to either Deledio or Mitchell.

  13. i know its a while off, but are people thinking of upgrading Smith (if they still have a rookie) to Goldstein after the Roos bye?

  14. I noticed Suckling missed with a back injuries a couple of games back. Can any hawks supporters out there tell us if that is affecting him. Do you expect him to score high for the rest of the season?

  15. ok i’ve got 2 trades left not sure what to do

  16. I’ve got 115, 300 in the bank, I’m considering (only, not taking action yet):
    Gibbs -> Birchall
    then Jacky Roo –> Fyfe (sooo expensive atm though)

    OR

    Pederson –> Suckling or Hurn
    then Chapman –> RO’K

    I don’t really want to get rid of Gibbs.. hrmmmm (something will give when they have a bye though).

  17. $498k in the bank, 4 trades left with ample premium’s & resonable bench to cover bye’s thru final after these 2 possible trades!

    H Shaw gone………… Welcome Goddard
    Lynch gone………Welcome Cyril Rioli

    This will set my team up for a solid finals campaign….maybe??
    Backs;
    Gibbs, Fisher, Deledio, Enright, Adcock, Goddard, Heppell (emg) Lower, Toy & Hibberd
    Mids;
    Pendles, Judd, Ablett, Priddis, Swan, Boyd, (emg) D Swallow, Buckley, Callinan
    Rucks;
    Cox, Z Smith, (emg) Lobbe, Derickx (bit light on, maybe need Mummy?)
    Forwards;
    Pavlich, Goodes, Fyfe, Stevie J, Franklin, N Riewoldt, Rioli (emg) Mzungu, Richardson, Talia

    Saving my last 2 trades for finals, need none 1st finals week (no kangaroo players), 2nd finals week cover (if I lose 1st week) Stevie J with Mzungu & Enright with Lower, 3rd finals week (use last 2 trades with Judd/Nicky Dal & Gibbs/? check at the time & if still in 4th finals week need to only cover Heppell with Lower in GF

    Any feed back/knocks/suggestions would be appreciated SCT coaches, 3 of the leagues I’m in are $$$ leagues to the winner & I’ll finish in the top 4 in all my leagues after this round.

  18. Interesting to see a few people trading in jnr rioli….hes only just back from injury and is testing a new running technique…as a hawks supporter i hope he plays like a champ every game of the year but he’s veeeery risky at the moment IMO.

  19. Anyone think with the defence being so thin this year that it’s a good idea to just go Newman to some 90K dud and make a ton of cash?

    I already have Goddard, Fisher, Deledio, Adcock, Grundy, Hurn, and could use Lower or Puopolo as cover

    I would then have 2 trades and ample funds to upgrade JRoo to fyfe and mzungu to a dal santo…

    Thoughts?!?!

  21. Good point made on Superfooty about Rnd 24.

    “The Pies and Cats might see their meeting in Round 24 – SuperCoach grand final day – as the perfect time for stars to freshen up for September. You have been warned.”

    In particular they reference how Pendles has not really had a rest all season long. Something to think about in relation to keeping some trades available to you for the final few SC weeks.

  22. 3 trades left – 20k in the bank

    sitting 5th ATM playing 3rd this week a win would most likely see me finish 4th but im missing griffin and GAJ. He is missing boyd n Gaj so not bothered by that.

    Im thinking Jolly and Cox will play out the year and im prepared to risk it to get the biscuit and drop Z smith for a dud = no ruck cover.

    The question is, upgrade either Darling, Lynch (GC) , I smith or Mzungu to a premium – thinking cloke but will take any other options.
    I already have stevie J, N roo, Franklin, Goodes, O’keefe, Pavlich and 1 rookie..

    Who would you guys pick up?

  25. ** NEWSFLASH**

    “imdb.com is reporting that Nat Fyfe of the Fremantle Football Club has been cast as Doogie Howser in a lavish broadway musical with Hugh Jackman to play his father. Nat ‘Doogie’ Fyfe is to leave the Fremantle Football Club effective immediately for pre-production practice.”

    Wow … couldn’t see that one coming Mcras

  26. I asked this in the rucks but don’t seem to be getting any love, so thought I’d ask the general Trade Audience…
    If you had Massive, and had the cash for any second Ruck, who would you get?
    Also, will you be risking playing Sandi in the Finals if he reappears?

  27. As i have no cover for Warnock in round 23 do I trade Warnock to Jolly now – (he is the only decent ruckman I can afford to trade to) or do I wait until the round and hope that the price differential has not decreased by more than the current funds available $20,000 between now and round 23?

    I have 3 trades left and looking doing Thompson(adel- backman)/Didak to Deledio and mid range DPP forward

    Other plans are:

    Any advice would be great

  30. Hey all.
    Haven’t been here for a while, mainly due to my disgraceful scores, woeful injuries, and the fact that I only have 3 trades left.
    But I’m back with a question on whether or not to pull the trigger on this baby.
    Shaw —–> Suckling/Birchill
    then Toy —–> Adcock leaving me with a defensive line of:
    Goddard, Gibbs, Fisher, Deledio, Grundy, Adcock, Suckling, (Newman, A Johnson, Jacobs)
    This means if Newman is back for round 23 (and god I’m hoping he is) I’ll have sufficiant cover for Gibbs, and won’t have to waste a trade.
    OR, I can go Shaw —-> Broughton
    And Newman —-> Suckers/Birchill and just play Johnson or Jacobs in Gibbs’ place come round 23.
    Thoughts?

  34. Only 1 trade left, which is three less than I was planning but injuries did bad things to my team!
    Nevertheless, it puts me a tricky situation for the next few weeks – hold the trade for injuries or bring in Sandilands when he gets back?
