Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread [now with a question for round 3]
Post by: Luigi197 on April 10, 2012, 03:45:58 PM
Here is my dilemma in terms of my team, and preparing it for round 3:
My scores so far have consisted of 2022 and 1979; not very good scores IMO, especially when I spent a lot of time pre-season preparing. With the team I have, I would assume I would score higher, but unfortunately I have not delivered much good.
League matches coming up, so I need to look at my team and ask myself how I can improve it so i can score higher.

People such as Broughton, Pavlich, Sidebottom and Martin have disappointed me so far, while Mumford is now under an injury cloud. Then, although playing, Paine, Hall, Smedts, and especially Dickson and Ledger, have all let me down in my rookie department.
What do I do? I would assume i have scored low so far this season, simply because my mix of players have not started off well, but the premiums you would assume will get back up there, or will they?

Trade Broughton and keep the faith and Pav, Sidey and Dusty?
Get in A Kennedy and Milera instead of Ledger and Dickson?

-------------------------------------------------

Also check out these 2 threads I made which I thought may help in some decisions:
Top 6 Defenders at Season's end. http://www.fanfooty.com.au/forum/index.php/topic,54840.0.html
Observe Greg Broughton http://www.fanfooty.com.au/forum/index.php/topic,54832.0.html

What make's you say that? Ledger's pre-season went well, though being the Sub, and still only scoring 17 is no good. He wont rise that much. Dickson has not lived up to the hype. Both these two have a strong potential of being replaced.
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: GoldDigger on April 10, 2012, 04:25:09 PM
I admit it's a bit of a toss up, but Hall isn't looking good, and Ledger isn't really getting a go. Paine - how's his js? Could go this week, or maybe a reprieve as there was an injury I think. Dickson may get a decent game soon - facing poorer opposition I think.

Anyway, I think you're right to want Milera and Kennedy - grab those boys on the bubble. Looking at your $$$, maybe you can look at Stanley also.

Can you tell me about Stanley's JS? I did see his most recent scores, good!!
And i actually think it should be certain that Ledger is going for me, as i can trade him for A Kennedy and bring in another MPP link in my mids.

i wouldnt be trading ledger.. scored 17 coming on just before 3q time when saints were what 70 points up?? game is over and that would have weighed heavily on his scoring.. had 8 touches in that time and looked very good in contested footy.. ill be keeping him for sure
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: Luigi197 on April 11, 2012, 06:08:22 PM
I've decided i'll save the money and go Milera, instead of Stanley, to trade in for Dickson.
And I really want/need Kennedy, and he will have to go into the mids. Therefore Ledger is really the only option to go.
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: Luigi197 on April 11, 2012, 06:09:19 PM
For my captain this week, i'm thinking:

Deledio if he plays midfield.
Otherwise Cox, if Hocking is named.
Otherwise Ablett or Goddard.

Thoughts?

Scored 2202 this week. Not bad considering i had Delidio (108) captain...

What does everyone think of a Martin to Ziebell trade?
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: Ringo on April 16, 2012, 05:46:55 PM
Would wait a week to see if Ziebel repeats dose, Will not change in price and martin will not drop by much unless he has a real stinker.
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: charliesheen on April 16, 2012, 05:54:05 PM
Huge score considering your captain...  I would be extremely tempted to take Longer to activate 3RR in your situation.  Leuy out for 6 weeks.

Something to think about...  Would also allow you to turn Paine/Dickson, into Marc Murphy

Don't cut costs when it comes to your midfield.
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: Luigi197 on April 17, 2012, 09:23:39 PM
Yes will definitely wait a week on Ziebell.

@Charliesheen:
haha if only if only i had Ablett captain ;) But nevermind that.
If I were to bring in Longer, which i have considered, who would be best to take out? Cox or Mummy? That would definitely give me more cash to get some bigger scores out of a premium elsewhere in my team.
Dickson, sorry, wouldn't be going as i already traded him and forgot to update my team on this thread. The calculations work out that at this current time, i would have rougly 500k to spend, which leaves me to hope that Pendlebury, Nick Dal Santo, S Thompson, Rockliff, Swan and Gibbs will go down a lot due to breakevens higher than 150. Followed by S Selwood, Masten, Ward, Hayes, Bastinac and Mzungu who may be in reach, depending on the exact calculations.
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: GoldDigger on April 17, 2012, 09:49:13 PM
Lose Cox b4 mummy - nicnat up and coming.

Pendles, NDS and Selwood junior for mine, probs should be in that order, but i have a soft spot for NDS!
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: charliesheen on April 17, 2012, 11:23:37 PM
As above.  Also be tempted to take Murphy over Pendles.  Should be able to buy Pendles cheaper in R7.  You still have Paine?  Can get rid of him through the trade.

 :-\ :-\ :-\ :-[ :-[ :-[
I do not know what to do...

DEF: B. Goddard, B. Deledio, N. Malceski, G. Broughton, T. Bugg, B. Lake, S. Morris (B. Ellis, B. Smedts)
MID: G. Ablett jnr, J. Selwood, M. Boyd, P. Dangerfield, J. Magner, D. Shiel (D. Smith, C. Smith)
RUC: D. Cox, S. Mumford (J. Giles, J. Redden)
FWD: L. Franklin, S. Sidebottom, M. Pavlich, A. Kennedy, J. Porplyzia, D. Martin, T. Milera (A. Hall, J. Paine)
CASH LEFT: $56,800
(I've underlined starting rookies)(Also keep in mind Lake is suspended this week)

No one wants, and no one thinks trading Premiums is ever a good idea, unless its a pretty bad situation.
I've had a few scares with Broughton, Mumford and Pavlich getting off to below par scores, but Martin has suffered the most!
He's a fwd/mid. Has a breakeven of 152. His next three matches are Geelong (Away), West Coast (Etihad) and Port (Away). His average is 75.67.
I don't want to lose easy games because of Martin lagging behind, if he is a player of difference. He should be performing better as a premium; and i honestly think he should be traded. His value will definitely go down, and i am also starting to feel that he indeed had a chance of becoming better this year, but maybe was a bit overrated. In my heart I am prepared to trade him. If i trade him i would want some guaranteed scores, and if i dont trade him, i dont want to see another score under 90.
Apart from maybe Nick Roo, Tippet, Harvey, Lewis, Hale and Waite, but even then, there are no good options left in the fwd.
If i swap him to the midfield, it gives me options such as S Selwood, Shuey, Ward, Masten, Hayes, Bastinac, Lewis, Barlow, Mzungu and Ziebell. None of those are really solid superstars, and therefore to get an extra 100k or so, a downgrade would be required. It is very early for a downgrade to be quite liable, but if it should be done, Lake's (300k) out for a week and has only been averaging 71 anyway, with a BE of -4. Him and Porpoise are the only ones that would make me enough money. Meanwhile Stephenson, Tomlinson and Newnes are the only biggies on the bubble. And Longer and Koby Stevens to join them soon.
So many different possibilities, each with their own risks!

Please help! :)

Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: charliesheen on April 18, 2012, 10:18:42 PM
Not against the idea.  Would not bring a mid, because you still need to bring in McDonald.  Most likely Paine > McDonald next week.  So really if you want to sideways trade, it has to be a forward who will average in the 100's.  Assuming Martin continues to do crap and average 85-90's.

If you watched Martin closely last year (I did) you would know he has a big scoring potential and is inconsistent.

I'm keeping him and so should you. You'll thank me whe he gets that 150

My Current Team:

TEAM NAME: Italian Stallions
DEF: B. Goddard, B. Deledio, N. Malceski, G. Broughton, T. Bugg, S. Morris, J. Paine (B. Ellis, B. Lake)
MID: G. Ablett jnr, J. Selwood, M. Boyd, P. Dangerfield, D. Shiel, D. Smith (J. Magner, C. Smith)
RUC: A. Sandilands, D. Cox (J. Giles, J. Redden)
FWD: L. Franklin, S. Sidebottom, M. Pavlich, J. Porplyzia, D. Martin, A. Kennedy, T. Milera (A. Hall, B. Smedts)
CASH LEFT: $66,600
 
OK. I WANT CASH!
I need to do some smart thinking to prepare myself for future trades. I already have Martin, Pavlich and Broughton dropping heaps in price; plus my rookie choice wasn't that good.
So i'm thinking if i can find someone in my team who isn't performing that great (i,e Broughton, DangerF, Pavlich), and do a sideways/downgrade to a premium who costs less than they are, but are averaging more and will be more consistent.
So an option could be Broughton to Hibberd/Geary/Duffied/Guerra/Taylor/Waters.
OR DangerF OR Pavlich to Ziebel/Barlow/Tippet/Dahlhous/Ebert/Anthony/K Cornes/Jack/Bastinac.

Thoughts?

You have just stated blokes with 4 good games in a row that have had mediocre seasons beforehand. The guys you have in your team you chose for a reason so stick with your guns! Broughton will still be top 7, same with pav and Martin was always going to be a loose cannon in his third year.. Even if they are struggling and continue to they will be good for at least a 6th or 7th spot on your field.. I would just leave it or get some blokes in on the bubble that are must have rookies..
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: charliesheen on April 23, 2012, 07:14:44 PM
McDonald is a must, so that should take priority.

J.Paine > McDonald.

Value in sideways trading is gone, unless you genuinely think your premiums will fail, say ~15 ppg drop off their 2011 average.
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: Luigi197 on April 23, 2012, 08:01:27 PM
OK i think i agree then.
I want more points in my team, and the only way to do that is to get more premiums.
And the only way to do that is to get money.
And the only way to do that is to downgrade.

Who should i look at giving the chop soon out of my rookies?
And who looks the good that i should get in ASAP for rookies on or about to be on the bubble?
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: charliesheen on April 23, 2012, 08:23:46 PM
The answer to all those questions are going to be line ball calls.  Personally, I think I am going to have to give some of these GWS rookies a miss with the way I plan on tackling the byes and the trade situation I am currently in.

Keep an eye on Jack Crisp at Brisbane.  Was elevated in place of Berger and named in Brisbane's team.  Thought he was vest material but played whole game and showed a bit especially found the ball a lot could have kicked 3 goals if he realised how much time he had. maybe a midfield downgrade target at rookie price of $94k.

Actually yeah i'll do the loophole with Sidebottom. Forgot!

I can't touch Essendon and Collingwood players until lockout at 2.40. So obviously I will double check my trades when the Wednesday teams come out regarding trading out Paine; and then when the rest of the teams come out regarding trading in McDonald.

I think they're locked in, these trades.

A Kennedy to Horsely
A Hall to Adams.

(http://i1190.photobucket.com/albums/z450/Luigi197/scteam160512.jpg)

OK. So I am pretty happy with how my team is at the moment, and scored 2419 on the weekend, but it is time to start thinking about byes, rookies, and end of year team. So I was thinking this:

Ellis --> Spurr this week. A pretty safe and sound trade, and should help with the round 13 bye, as my fwd line already has a few of them.
I am then also tossing up a few options for the future:
Shiel --> Priddis once Shiel maxes and Priddis bottoms in Breakevens and price. Hopefully in accordance to help me with byes.
Bugg --> Scotland once I have the money, as i will need one more defending premium. Hopefully in accordance to help me with byes.
My fwd line is in a bit of a dilemma though, as my rookies haven't risen as much as i would've liked, the only real good premium left to pick is Kurt Tippet who costs quite a bit, and currently Zorko and Saad are the only players due to a price rise, at this stage. So somewhere along the lines, my fwds need one more premium.

Thoughts please would be appreciated (:
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: charliesheen on May 16, 2012, 08:18:17 PM
You should consider keeping Morris & Ellis for the byes.  Both have reasonable JS and adequate R13 bye keepers.

T. Milera > R12 back (Spurr)
D. Shiel > R12 forward (Zaharackis/SJ/Chapman/etc.)


Next week, you should look @ Zorko & Jenkins.  With 2 premium rucks I think you really need to look at selling Giles to maximize scoring.

Post by: Luigi197 on May 16, 2012, 09:22:02 PM
Are those trades that u suggester for this week or later?
Also, how about my plan of getting Priddis when he bottoms in price?
And the thing about Giles, as that surely enough, Cox and Sandi will get injured again at once stage, so i will always have a good scoring backup? Or is that just a waste of money on the bench?

Thanks!!
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: charliesheen on May 16, 2012, 09:25:28 PM
Those trades are for this week.

Hmmm...  Tough one, maybe reassess Jenkins the week after, could also cash out Redden who looks gone.

Forget Priddis, Murphy is going to be dirt cheap very soon and could average 120 sc this year.
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: Luigi197 on May 16, 2012, 09:57:17 PM
I think I will do those trades, as it will strengthen my fwd line! I think Chapman will be the way to go, and that way i will have 60k in the bank. So for now those trades for this week sound good :)

So then over the next few weeks, i cash in Redden and 1 or 2 fwd rookies, so later i can get in Marc Murphy. These trades here will have to be wise and worth while though.

I think then i will also forget about Giles for a while; mayb until my team hits a crisis, or simply for the end of the year.

Thanks!!

Even if i already have Cox, Sandi and Giles?
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: Ringo on May 21, 2012, 07:18:26 AM
Check your bye situation Luigi. Jenkins has a Round 11 bye with Cox and Giles. So you will have a ruck donut in Round 11.  No problem if you are going to get rid of Giles for a round 12 or 13 Ruck prior to bye. 
Also Zorko has a Round 11 bye whereas hall has a Round 13 bye so if in trouble with Round 11 byes consider this as well.
Bye Structure this year is really causing angst as Best Backs all have Round 13 byes, Best Forwards all have Round 12 or 13 byes Best Rucks Round 11 byes.
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: charliesheen on May 22, 2012, 12:55:01 PM

Have to reassess which GWS has to go for Zorko based on who is named.

Giles > Jenkins

Do you honestly think that Giles to Jenkins would be the best move (i.e byes??) That would make me 3 r11 bye rucks.. And that move would only be best if Jenkins continues to get games, and Redden starts playing soon, as Sandi and Cox may get injured at one stage, and if it isn't Giles, i want at least someone who is playing to back them up..
And also, i've got A Hall who's not playing, would it better to trade him out for someone who is playing, even if he hasn't made me too much money? Or is it really worth trading Bugg (with dpp Smedts)/Treloar for Zorko for that extra cash? I'd say that i wouldn't want to trade McDonal yet, cause his BE is still low and will rise the most out of the GWS players (except for Giles), but on that note, Treloar still has a low BE, so mayb either way, Bugg would be the best downgrade as he has made heaps of cash and has a BE of 75?

In short yes.

RUC: D. Cox, A. Sandilands (J. Giles, J. Redden)

Cox - R11
Sandi - R12
Jenkins - R11
Redden - R13.

Trying to optimize donuts in rucks is IMO not very beneficial most comes down to luck.  Cash injection from giles, will make up ground from starting 2 ruck combo over Giles.

Its your time to shine.  Use that cash to get rid of dead weight rookies in other positions.

Post by: Luigi197 on May 23, 2012, 04:47:28 PM
hmm ok!

Keeping in mind that last week i did Milera to Spurr (in defence) and Shiel to Chapman (in fwd).
I also have Smedts currently in the fwd who can go back.

Should I get in Zorko this week as well? For Bugg?

And which upgrades look on the horizon most likely?
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: charliesheen on May 23, 2012, 07:33:23 PM
With cash injection, probably looking @ getting rid of dead weight rookies that are not named.
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: Luigi197 on May 23, 2012, 08:26:30 PM
Tell me what you think of this:

If I trade Bugg to Zorko by moving Smedts to my backs and Zorko to my fwds; And If I also trade Giles to Jenkins, It wont effect my Bye's at all compared to before the trades, and with this, I will have pretty much exactly 600k to spend. With this money I could do these trades, most likely in this chronlogical order:

Upgrade Ellis to Shaw/Scotland.
Upgrade C Smith to Watson/S Thompson/Swan
Upgrade Hall to Tippet/N Riewoldt
Sideways trade Martin to Tippet/N Riewoldt (if Dustin's form really doesn't improve, and if it helps my bye situation)
Upgrade Horsely/McDonald to Watson/S Thompson/Swan/Judd/Murphy
Upgrade Morris/Spurr to Shaw/Scotland

**In the middle of these, downgrade Smedts/Pfeiffer/Redden/remaining rookies. Most likely after byes**

1. Are my trades this week good?
2. Have I got the right idea for the future?
3. What would you suggest for the future? Would you alter my current plans?
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: charliesheen on May 23, 2012, 08:30:51 PM
Need Bugg as bye keeper.  Don't touch him unless you are replacing him with a R11 defender.

So McDonald for Zorko if he isn't named? Although I hate to let Mcdonald go with his price still to rise, although i'm hating him not playing!
Which brings me to a new question. I started with Zorko in my plans for this year, but then didn't start with him as he wasn't named. Do i still want him?
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread

Wait and see who is named.
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: Luigi197 on May 24, 2012, 08:37:24 PM
So Team are released. Jenkins named in the Half Forward. Zorko named on the interchange. Ellis named at Half Back, though chance for Sub as always. Smedts dropped. Clay Smith dropped again. Old Mac is back. Pfeiffer named. A Hall still not named. Bugg Back.

So :

Giles --> Jenkins
?? ?? Ellis(BE: 90)/C Smith(24)/Hal(-23)l --> Zorko ?? ??

Hi all,

Just thought i would throw in my thoughts...
I traded murphy > zorko & got jenkins in for kruezer!

Handy $1mil in the bank will make trading my $300+ rookies to premiums over the next few weeks :)

Team as of now...

Backs: Deledio, Goddard, Scotland, Shaw, Suckling, Clarke, Bugg (ellis, guthrie)
Mids: Pendlebury, Boyd, Ablett, Sheil, Horsley, JMac (magner, zorko)
Rucks: Giles, Jenkins (redden, StephO)
Forwards: Danger, Buddy, Sidebottom, Zaha, Milera, Smith, Trealoar (hall, Cameron)

Post by: Luigi197 on May 31, 2012, 10:20:53 PM
Thanks Jay. Not looking to trade this week, was just wondering who I should put captain. :)

I don't really rate Darley, and I also think that the time for GWS rookies is over. Morris also has a way better JS.
Bugg also has a good JS and by current bye situation is only concerning over round 13, so neither of those trades help that. Also, I don't rate M Johnson much either, i believe he is not superstar SuperCoach finals material. I am also not in a rush anymore to complete my fwd line. Tippet or N Riewoldt will most likely complete my fwd line.

Pendles or GAJ captain, or anyone else? Thanks! :)

I have gone off Ablett this week and gone with Pendles.  Mainly due to the fact that I think he is carrying an injury which may flare up.  Obvious last week with the amount of rubbing and stretching he was doing.
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: charliesheen on June 01, 2012, 02:18:08 PM
I would actually go

Bugg > Darley
Morris > Rance/Scotland/Birchall

Reasoning is that your going to face a donut in R13 anyway, you may as well get the R13 premium you want to cover R11 and R12

Team looks good.
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: Luigi197 on June 01, 2012, 04:05:15 PM
Well i originally wasn't looking at trading, but you always make me reconsider charliesheen ;)
Bugg to Darley does seem logical as Bugg may start losing value, and the following upgrade I would say would be Scotland as from the start, I have always said I want to complete my backline with Shaw and Scotland, and have kept by it. Would it better to trade Ellis though, who is likely to get fewer points?
I do follow your reasoning, and am prepared to do it, however wasn't Scotland in some strife over some illegal criminal thing or something that he will go to court for?

I need more points in my team.
Sam Shaw (defender Adelaide), on the bubble. Now or Never for Mitchell and Watson, Stevie J and Cloke.
Not trading out Scotland or Pendles.

Horsley > Sexton

Take the rookie donuts from Spurr and Smedts
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: j959 on June 08, 2012, 12:46:57 AM
My two cents luigi ...

just carry Scotland for the 4-6wks, unless you're in the top1000 you're effectively just going for league wins (as well as maintain your overall ranking as best as possible) so no point trading him out as a premium you'd want to have come finals time ...

thinking outside the box a little, you could downgrade Horsley to Tom Mitchell (or Sexton/other rook currently playing, but not sure if that would give you enough cash) so you can upgrade Spurr to Grimes/Adcock(rd11 bye but just as an example of the price-range i'm thinking for you)??

I just think with 10 trades, if you go too hard in these MBRs you may not be left with much for the rest of the season - still not quite half-way yet are we??   :-\    ;)

Good luck mate ...
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: charliesheen on June 08, 2012, 11:05:09 AM
Keep forgetting your going for leagues.  I would still probably trade Scotland and tank R12 grabbing all the best premiums.

If your top 4 now, yeah you "might" be able to carry Scotland.

In R21 (finals)

Collingwood have Melbourne
Hawks have Gold Coast.

These are probably the teams to invest in, assuming no mass restings :D

I reckon it might be worth getting the Dane Swan now.  You could also punt on Daisy Thomas.

Horsley > Sexton
McDonald  > Swan
Scotland > MJ (i would get rid of him no guarantee's when he is back).
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: Luigi197 on June 08, 2012, 04:34:19 PM
I Like It!
I'll do those 3 trades that you suggested the second time charliesheen (tbh i hated the idea of trading in Cotchin...)
I am all for using up my trades to get a team i want.

I can consider Shaw, Mitchell and Cloke to complete my team later in the year.

Post by: Luigi197 on June 12, 2012, 04:32:30 PM
(Big thanks goes to Charliesheen for the wonderful trades!!!)
I had Ablett captain in the end :'(
Also had Deledio and Martin letting me down.
While Sandi, Malceski and Redden got subbed.
And played with 3 extra donuts.
Scored 1683; rank 14,000 for the round, and went up 4000 places to rank 4929 overall! Also won all my leagues 8)

Currently facing 5 donuts, while there is all the chance that Darley, Sexton, Redden, Hall, Treloar, Pfeiffer could get dropped. I also have Sandilands injured on the bench. I also have Jenkins playing on the bench, so either him or Redden.
Have 7 trades and 198,800 left in the bank.

In my best team, i have 3 rookies playing, one on each lines (except for Rucks). Currently I see no good options to complete my defense, so i'll worry about them later. In the midfield, Watson, Mitchell, Priddis and S Thompson are all options to complete that line. And Nick Riewoldt, Cloke and Tippet seem good options to complete my Forward. But first i need to trade Sandilands.
Ryder, Goldstein and Maric seem the only good options left. Ryder (bye 12) is real good now, although I wouldn't have picked him at the start of the year. Goldstein has a low breakeven. And as much as I hate him, Maric (bye 13) is really good... Hale (bye 13) has also done quite well this year. Sandilands is also worth 481,200 as an FYI.

Meanwhile Crozier is the only boy on the Bubble, well him and Moore.
And also thinking Boyd captain this week, verses Port Adelaide.
Also, am versing tough people in all my leagues this week, so should be tough.

But I really need help on my trades this week, please help! :)

Naitanui will be perma locked in my team for many years to come.  Should average ~105 SC for the year.  Is a SC specialist and fits perfectly with byes, with Jenkins as emergency.

Pfieffer to Sam Gibson seems good.
Treloar and Morris to upgrade would be great! However i'm not sure if i like those 2 targets mentioned.
I mean i don't mind Heppel, its just that before he got injured, he started getting lower scores. He only cracked the ton v Carlton and Collingwood (rounds 4 and 5), and averaged 86 from rounds 1-3 and 6. Then he got scores of 67, 63 and 76. Not to mention his breakeven is 107 this week and might not even play. HOWEVER, except for Shannon Hurn, he does seem like the only other good option who doesn't have a bye this week in the defense.
In the forward Tippet, Petrie and Cloke all don't have the bye, with Cloke being the cheapest.

IF I DID:
Pfieffer to Gibson, Morris to Heppel and Treloar to Cloke, i would have 190k IN THE BANK.

Thoughts?

Oh right, so you want me to finish my midfield first?

Midfield options are Scott Thompson, Watson, JPKennedy.

Getting Gibson and JPK  would leave me with 140k. just enough to get in Heppel and leave with 10k if i want.
can i ask why JPK btw? he has been averaging great, but isn't he one of those players who are improving into a premium, but we dont know if they can last the whole season? his BE is 157, but he has been very very consistent....
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: charliesheen on June 20, 2012, 10:07:38 PM
Think there is enough sample data to suggest he is the real thing.  He has been averaging this without Mumford and Goodes in the side!

At the end of the day its your call who you want to be M6 in your team.  Personal preference.

Yeah you know what:
Pfeiffer -> Sam Gibson
Treloar -> JPK
Morris -> Heppel

That sounds real good cause not only is my team in a good situation for this week, it also isn't limiting my trading for after the bye rounds finish, as my last midfielder as a POD will be good, and i've pretty much got all the best midfielders; no need to stress about not having Scott Thomson, Watson or Mitchell. Hepell is really good after all, and Scotland and Fisher look to get injured again and Rance and Hurn just don't cut it IMO.

Then all i need to wait out for is a good rookie to downgrade to and later use the money to upgrade my last fwd.

PS: Do you really think getting in Heppel AS WELL this week is a good idea even if it leaves me with little cash?
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: charliesheen on June 20, 2012, 10:47:36 PM
I actually think Rance is a better pick than Heppel.  I see no reason why Rance won't average 90.  Heppel should average 85-90 SC.

You don't really need the back upgrade, it just puts you in a better position to win this weeks league game.

Malceski out... That will cause another problem.

I think i am liking Heppel, Gibson and JPK.

Actually come to think of it, Scott Thompson is cheaper and has a very good fixture.

How does everyone think i'm looking for this stage of the season?

Team is great, would be worried about your bench cover, Malceski and your number of trades. Fingers crossed!
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: charliesheen on June 28, 2012, 02:47:06 PM
Great ruck.
Great midfield
Pretty good forward line.
Reasonable back line.

3 trades left.   Malceski is not ideal, but I think your midfield/rucks/fwds should power you through finals easy :)

Post by: Luigi197 on June 28, 2012, 03:47:22 PM
Yes! Just what i was looking for! Malceski was always going to be a worry; and i only have myself to blame for falling for the 'players on the bubble' ...

I would be very surprised if you can't power through most of your leagues with that team.

Post by: Luigi197 on June 28, 2012, 07:23:37 PM
Although my team is looking good, i'm still not sure whether to take a calculated risk or go safe for captain choice. Usually i get captain right 3/5...

The dominant Cox or NicNat v ruckless Gold Coast?
In form S Thompson v un-predictable Richmond?
Consistent Chapman v lifeless Port Adelaide?
Hard head Selwood v lifeless Port Adelaide?
The Safe Ablett v Home advantaged West Coast?
Gamebreaker Swan v Tactician Fremantle?

While Ablett, Swan and Chapman have good numbers to back them up.

Looking towards Ablett or Chapman.

TBH your team isnt quite perfect but cant do much about it with 3 trades...by all means it isnt bad, field full of keepers which is good...what im trying to say is, if your in some tough leagues, your team atm wont win, not sure about your leagues so cant comment...

Backs: weakest line...heppel/lake/eski arent premiums, especially eski, as he isnt even in the side! IMO another upgrade is needed here

Mids: great :) bench is poor though with Gibbo & Sexy

Rucks: redden > campbell...but anyway, great rucks...gotta love the WC duo :)

Fwds: 2 non-premiums in Dusty & Zorks...good enough though...bench is weak and you'll cop some donuts late in the year no doubt



Sorry if i sound harsh
Title: Re: Luigi's SC Team - Official Thread
Post by: Luigi197 on June 28, 2012, 07:46:33 PM
No problem at all Jay! tbh that's exactly what i was thinking!
With my leagues, if you look at Reply #126, 2 of them will be easy to roll through; and the other two are really difficult. I never expected to win those other 2 leagues, but want to at least make finals.

My benches suffered because of poor rookie trading, but not much i can do now. I can say though it got me a quite strong team early in the season.
The only other defenders that I think would suit are Scotland and Shaw, but didn't trade them in and instead got Heppel and Johnson in order to work with the byes as well. Has Malceski and Lake from the start anyway.
Yes Martin dissapointed, but had him from the start, and IMO, the only other options i like are Nick Riewoldt, Tippet and S Johnson, but i am content enough to have Martin as my F6. Zorko is a star, but i do agree however that it isn't ideal to have him start, especially if i am close to finishing my team.

Look, with 3 trades left, not much else i can do, but in hinsight, 1 downgrade, and 1 fwd and 1 back upgrade i guess would be last trades if no injury hits, am i right?

Thanks :)
PS: captain this week?

Can't believe Malceski came back from dead.

I have the exact same rucks.  Dean Cox and Naitanui what a killer combo.  And you were worried they would steal points off each other :)

I think i am going to refuse frustration and put Ablett captain for the rest of the year, then not follow his matches

Something to consider Luigi Selwoods last 4 SC scores v Pies 140,145,121,153.  Maybe worth the risk putting the C on him this week.

Murdoch, Mcinnes, Yeo, Spencer, Gumbleton*, Bagauley* and Couch* among those names on the bubble, but definitely not suggesting trading, unless i am not seeing something.
*only played one game.

Broughton, Hall and Smedts are among those with higher than possibly achievable breakevens atm.

Sexton is out for the season though...

My options for him are Redden, Swallow, Goodes, Judd and Walker. I have posted my current team here, and the link to a really easy poll I set up just below it.
