LDU is on the ground running around in the pregame warm up!!
Howe is warming up also, might be a late in.
I know this is getting asked alot but who should we be going of Phillips or chandler?
One hour to make the big call!
As a Norfff supporter I hope clarko keeps pumping games into the #3 pick but I can see him getting used as a sub on and off.
Chandler can make 150k from here just the 50k more expensive.
TU : W.Phillips
TD : K.Chandler
Ziebell, Sheezel and possibly Cowan for me here. Hollands E.
It’s Wilmot’s 50 or field Cowan. Would usually be an easy decision to just take 50 but if Cowan’s ever gonna post a fieldable score it’d be against North.
Passed on boosting Neale -> LDU. Watch LDU now come out, fade a tag and go ballistic.
Also expecting Doch to snap back into action for owners.
I reversed an LDU trade in also, worried Ed Curnow follows him around today.
Yeah, I mean, they went after Guthrie the other week and there’s room in the CBA mix for a tagger with no Kennedy.
Let’s see what happens.
I’m backing Cowan in case of a future late out. A 10 point drop is better than a doughnut
Hey GD, I would say fiend Cowan……then I’ll hope he gets a score in the teens and subbed off…….no other reason that because I’m taking on you in the GD league 2! Haha good luck mate.
Lol. Doch to decide our match up.
Bergman out due to illness.
Good news for sheezel owners. Should get swung back now.
Howe is replacing Bergman.
Plenty happening in this match for me.
Sheezel, ziebell, doch, cowan and Phillips (currently in) all eyes are on the 2023 rising star he’s been moved to the forward flank! We’ll See if that sticks I guess.
Also Expecting too see doch bounce back against a side whose very ordinary at entering their F50.
Miller Bergman (illness) is a late out with Daniel Howe replacing him in the side.
– Hugh Greenwood
– Jack Carroll
TU: Take Wilmot’s score of 50 as emergency
TD: Roll the dice with Cowan and put him on the field
Was hardly the critical question after all.
Come on Cowan just score me at least 40 as a 10 point loss is better than a doughnut that could occur from a future out with no cover
Another 40 poss please Crippa, but at 80% de please, and just a couple of clangers.
And three goals would be nice too.
Same with Doc get another 39 possies but actually crack the tonne this time
I’m expecting doch to go 115 today against us.. should have a field day down back mopping up our shit forward 50 entry haha
Could I be the only SC person who Vc’d Doc ahead of Naicos?
Td Have confidence, there might be someone else….
My match-up did, and I did Daicos. Happy with it hahah
What’s up with Doch this year? Saad is the main man down there it seems.
Believe he is playing more midfield time. Will wonder what happens when Walsh returns next week
Potentially one of these guys like Short from Richmond who just score better as loose distributer down back.
Cerra seems to be running with LDU and has given a couple holding free kicks away already…. I’m ok with it as I threw the VC on LDU against GD’s advice – I felt like he owed me after bringing him in and being a late out haha. Will probably backfire.
I held off on Neale -> LDU, don’t make it sting any more Jam!
I’m holding Neale because I have used so many trades already lol, but he just doesn’t look right this year. LDU gone to sleep this quarter too!
Good contested game but can see it opening up in the back end of quarters.
Gee doch is going to be a headache for owners.
If you wanted to jump off it had to be this week in my opinion.. if he goes sub 90 again he’s bled to much cash and your holding waiting for him to bounce back.. hopefully Walsh’s return is the beginning of that
It seems Saad has taken over his role
Doch to Oliver might have been the right move after all. Hopefully a big second half incoming for doch.
Was so torn on trading him this week, but that 39 possession game made me hold him. Starting to slowly regret that now
Yeah I had done the doch to Oliver trade several times throughout the week. But backed in doch and save the boost.. very much regretting it because next week doch is 500k and probably forced to hold. I can’t bring myself jump off a bloke whose lost me 100k in a fortnight. It’ll be a hold til he bounces back and upgrade around him.. hopefully got a donut to try loop him each week haha
Hoping Walsh makes that positive impact
Chucked him after round 2 for Naicos for a VC option.
Last week it looked ok, but paid off well with VC this week.
Walsh returning may change things up for Doc but really the issue just seems predominantly Saad.
Cowan has 51% TOG halfway through the 2nd term……….
Darn it shouldve made the move and trade Doch out…
I’ve seen enough. Doch dropping marks he would normally take, no confidence, doesn’t seem to even know where he’s meant to be playing. Don’t care what it cost I’m bring trading him to Stewart.
Doc just sitting off the back of the stoppages and getting no ball
Doch to Saad is the cheap option for me cant afford Stewart yet
As they keep stating the top 4 disposal getters for Carlton are all the defenders. Doc should be one of them………
Seems that he’s been replaced and Saad is the successor. I mean even when Doch did have a kick out he didn’t even play on and get an extra stat that’s how bad he’s going!! I give up
Doc 20 at half with 8 possessions
Team with 60 uncontested marks.
This game style is really hurting Doc for the position he is in
Posted on Last Minute earlier but should have asked:
“Wilmot’s 50 or field Doch?” rather than “Wilmot’s 50 or field Cowan?”
I’m another who had Doch out all week then brought him back in… AND I VC’d HIM!
With 39 touches but poor use, he only had to change one of those two things this week. He changed the wrong bloody one.
Sorry Doch but I think looks like your time to be retired from my SC team. You’ve done a lot over the years, but you just don’t seem to be performing any more.
Probably goodbye Doch 🙁
Not watching but Doch a real concern! Liking ziebell & D-U- tonne up lads.
Not sure how some didn’t get Sheezel in- how good is he!
Ziebell was on 65 at half-time. Was counting my chickens a bit early. That nonsense 50m at the end of the 3rd did his score no favours. Close to a tonne is decent at least
PO Curnow go and get the ball. #NoTaggin
Doch finally getting involved in play and on 54
If he scores 90-100 it is then another week of torture of what to do with him….
He’s now playing on ball instead of just standing on the outside of the stoppage contests
LDU being kept relatively quiet by a curnow tag? Doch with a 38pt quarter.. keep this up and he might actually get half way too his BE this week! Cmon son
Wait, nup he’s still a potato.
Doch playing mid will be interesting to see how he goes when Walsh back you’d think he’d be the odd one out
Sheezel is a gun. The ‘new’ NDaicos?
Sheezel reaching that ton! keep going like that you might aswell stay in my team
Is Doch going to get some junk time points???
Sorry Doch, but you are out the door next week.
Just hope Stewart has an average day so he drops a bit in price too
Cya Doc, thanks for the 4 weeks and the 100k loss
This doch situation has 2022 Jake Lloyd vibes.. after averaging 107 plus for 4-5 years straight he out of the blue averaged 92 last season.
Starting at 585k he got as low as 458k through the season and was just never reliable and very inconsistent.. I’m getting that feeling about docherty. Other players are emerging around him and just no locked in role at the moment.. people expect him to bounce back but it may not happen. People were holding for his soft draw well we are two weeks into that now and he’s been very poor. North are one of the worst teams going into their F50 if he couldn’t have a day out today when will he, I’m off him.
Don’t see him managing to get a solid role in that Carlton backline.
Problem is though Kennedy, Walsh and Acres should all return next week, so where does he play?
The role is Hurting Doc he’s playing between Midfield and Deep defense not getting Contested ball or cheap kicks. Walsh back should change that
Acres and Kennedy also should return
So…..do I take Phillip’s 67 or put Callaghan on field or for that matter Davey.
Thumbs up Phillips
Thumbs down Other
Plan looks to be Doch out for Stewart and then see how Doc goes with the mids returning. If he goes back up to standard he is back in and should have dropped a bit more in price
I had Day in for Doch this week but having already used 2 boosts, decided to hold fire.
Think I need to hold him now – he’s averaging 85 and IF the return of Walsh/Kennedy etc means he’s back to his old role, there’s no reason why he can’t pump out a few 120s and be above 95 average , good enough for D6.
Does all this mid time mean he’ll get DPP?
The problem is it’s not a heap of CBA
mid time. I don’t even know what to make of his role at the moment. He isn’t their main distributor off the half back line anymore either. I’m thinking of chopping next week..
Spent a lot time standing around the edge of stoppages. Wasn’t getting the ball given to him out the back.
The mids returning will probably send him back, but will Saad, Young, Newman all be stealing points?
Plus who goes out for the midfielders?
Yup noticed that too looked a tad slow at times
