Trade Or Hold – Rd5 #2

Written by Schwarzwalder on April 17 2018

The question has been asked many times in the Polling Station……..what should we do with Michael Hibberd?

Hibberd started his new career at Melbourne in 2017 with his best SuperCoach output in a season (99 avg from 18 games played).  Starting the 2018 season at $545k and a favorable fixture ahead of him, Hibberd was expected to carry on in similar vein.  Coaches are frustrated with his output of 74, 72, 92 & 73 after the opening four Rounds.  Many are looking to offload before his price plummets any further.  What would you advise his owners to do?

  1. I’m going to stick with the ride all year. I do not want to run out of trade AGAIN so I will accept my punishment. If he comes good then it will be great, if he doesn’t he will average 75 which is not good but it is my punishment.

    1. Hold and reassess once Lewis is back I reckin. If hibberd still scores shit trade him for Simmo/Yeo/Hurley. If he scores well maybe keep him as your D6?

    2. Yep Garry (nice one) I think it’s worth waiting to see the effect of Lewis out. Lewis seemed to be taking a number of the kick outs so I’m keen to see if Hib is back in the rotation there.

  2. Very few standouts demanding to be traded in over Hibbo is the problem.

    Simpson just had a low score and could wait a few weeks.

    Laird and Hurley might be worth it if you don’t already have them.

  3. If you have Laird/Hurley already, as do I, then I think Rance is worth a good look. Not getting any love on these forums, but solid scores of 83, 99, 113, 75 not shabby. If not Rance then Yeo.
    I don’t have Hibberd so my opinion is unclouded by rage !

  4. I’ve been tempted to trade him every week. I just keep reminding myself that the overall winner started with Nick Malceski at $550K+ a couple of years ago, and eventually traded him out with a month to go for about $350K.

    You can still win with a spud in your team for most of the season. Difficult, but possible. And who knows, maybe this is the week Goodwin realises his gameplan sucks, and shakes things up a bit? Hint: Hibberd ain’t a lockdown defender!

  5. In years gone by, I’d have traded him out last week. But in years gone by, I’m always struggling for trades after Rd18 with that mentality 😉 Unless he’s injured, upgrade your rookies first. Or alternatively…..if you still have 29/30 trades in hand, then pull the trigger…….
