Very disappointing week for the TEAM, Coaches.  Not a single League win and we are now in just 3/10 Top8 positions.  Unfortunately got caught with our pants down with Yeo being a late out.  Witherden could’ve easily taken his place but it was too late.  Some big calls to be made this week.  TEAM as it stands……….

Ok, Coaches……….two weeks till Finals and we are only in the running for three Finals Series at the moment (was at six last week).  We want the TEAM to be in the midst of the Finals action so we won’t die wondering.  Obviously Thursday night selection will be crucial with Rocky, Pendles and Danger in doubt.  But I’d still like to get a gauge on which direction we’re heading this week with our trades.

Enter your trade suggestions into the Comments below.  Our Coaching Staff will give their approval/disapproval with the Thumbs UP/DOWN function.  Fire away, Coaches!


** UPDATE at 7pm on 20/7/17 **

Ok, Coaches……..we have a choice of two trade options.  Either Yiorgi’s suggestion of trading out Pendles & Newman for J.Selwood & Hurley or my variation of trading out rookies Ryan & Parsons for J.Selwood (via Yeo DPP) & Nyhuis.  And with any luck Pendles might be back next week.  If not, we’d have enough cash to upgrade him or Newman to a premium MID or DEF.  If Dangerfield and/or Rocky miss out this week, we should have enough cover on the bench.  What do you think, Coaches?

  1. Parsons – Young
    Greenwood – Heeney

    Hold Pendels, Witherdren could field for him for the week. re-evaluate Pendels trade next week.


    1. Pendles is cooked. Minimum two weeks with a broken finger. Pies can’t make finals so they won’t risk him. Could be mothballed.


  2. One of Scharenberg/Ryan down to a def/mid loophole allowing Parsons to be upgraded to one of Heeney or Westhoff or can be switched to the mids with E Yeo for M Bontempelli, L Neale or J Selwood.


  3. Pendles has to go as he will be out for at least 2 weeks and , most likely the season. The logical trade is downgrading him to Selwood banking 46k.

    Then i reckon trade Parsons to Josh Kennedy who is a player with a high ceiling and , hope he kicks a bag against the pies backline this week which would not surprise. Hang on these trades look familiar oh i am doing the same trades for my struggling team which is a concern.


  4. Pendles to Joelwood – lock.

    Newman is tiring – trade him for Hurley or Roberton/Hibberd to save a bit of coin.

    The other lines look good.


  5. Pendles – Jelwood
    Parsons – Beams/Hanners (think there is enough $) via Yeo
    Greenwood on bench, if goes big then take Lynch out


  6. Need points b4 cash this week.
    Pendlebury- Selwood
    Greenwood – Neale via Yeo DPP
    Cash $2300
    If Rockliff is out for more than 1 wk then trade him in lieu of Greenwood.
    Cash $62900


    1. Pendlebury had successful surgery and may only miss this week according to Collingwood football manager Geoff Walsh.


  7. I reckon we should get Brayden Maynard into the TEAM. Pendles being out should mean more possession’s for Maynard.

    He gives ya another captainsy option, to.
