Title: Observe Greg Broughton
Post by: Luigi197 on April 09, 2012, 09:45:10 PM
Yes it is another thread about Greg Broughton, but it is a simple one.
Many will have him as there original elite backmen, who they intend to keep.
He had a reasonable pre-season, and was said to move into the midfield more this year.
He has come out, though, with scores of 57 and 72, and is now playing a role in the Freo squad, that means no good news for SuperCoach teams.
He has a breakeven of 172. "Historically he plays well against Brisbane". And he hasn't got that hard of a fixture.

Are you keeping him or not?
 
If possible, leave possible reasons why or why not trade him out of your team, and also explain to me why Birchall, Dempsey, Rance, Hurn, Adcock, Duffield etc. would be bad ideas... or good ideas?

Thanks.

Keeping him. More interested in my cash leagues than overall. Love freo's run home and trades are golden.

I don't have him, but I would be hanging onto him if I did. He was the same last year, so many people trade him out after a couple of low scores then he would pump out some 120+'s

So it depends on how much you are panicking...

So hard to know what lyon is going to do with him. Dont know about the duff mans injury if at all and they have silvagni to come back probably this week so that might change his role. If it was me i would stick with him and save the trade. However in saying that i have broughts and shaw in DT and am going to trade one of them out for goddard (I Know) but i dont know which one.  I'll Probably stick with broughts.

The people who chose 'no' in the poll don't have him, so disregard those votes.

Didn't think of that MC; but should still take them into consideration.

I am now leaning towards keeping however...

I'll be keeping him in my team. If i had him in dt he would defs be out of my team. Last year showed he is more of a sc'er than a dt'er so im gonna keep the faith

WOW i voted no the results came up and 12-12 - a whole lotta hate :) i'm with the haters but I have Howard to deal with....

I wouldn't trade him anyway, the defenders playing as defenders aren't scoring well anyway, i got broughton and heater but have to let them come good can't trade everyone sideways.

I also have Goddard and Delidio and can't get better than they are putting out, it all balances out I guess and as soon as you trade out heater or broughton you just know what is going to happen, the guys you bring in stop scoring and they start :)

If you do trade broughton tho it has to be to a rook or mid pricer about to rise in price a lot and make you a ton of cash OR

to a defender premium that is a must have which is goddard, delidio, probably birchall he won't score any worse than his 80 today as we saw if he isnt getting the ball they will move him to where he will get it.

that's my 2 cents... good lucky deciding with a 12-12 poll  :-\

At least you know what you're getting with Birchall. His role is very unlikely to change. Even on a "bad" day like today he still scored OK. Him or Dempsey/Malceski would be my replacement choice.

until dempsey starts going bad, why not grab him...

   pros: u make a decent chuck of cash and if he continues to score the way he is, then you have yourself a keeper. also he has the same bye round as broughton

   cons: he may start pumping out low scores, but if he does he's not going down in price and you can upgrade to a fallen premium in 3 weeks

I'm thinking Greg to Dempsey and pfeiff to Hayes. I think Lenny will only get better and ave 100. At worst Dempsey will reach a good price and can upgrade to a better prem

Give him 1 more week. Brisbane don't have anyone worth tagging.
