  • Who on the ground dalhaus or mcovern

  • Tough choice of Bews or Luke Thompson as D7 :P

  • Yes Gunston

  • FFS!! you plan all week then all of a sudden Bartel is out and McGlynn this week too! Hmmm Hanley is off of the chopping block.. time to seek help in another thread….

  • Geez that threw a cat amongst the pidgeons!!! I only just got mcglynn last week now i gotta trade him

  • who’s the best two forwards to get in this week, excluding boomer and martin?

  • and reiwoldt
    was thinking parker and either duncan, jack or gray

  • McGlynn to who… Buddy/ K Jack/ R Gray?

  • should i trade:
    Trade 1: Dalhaus/ Zorko – K.Jack w/ bench downgrade
    Trade 2: Ollie wines – JPK w/ bench downgrade

  • dlahaus

  • hmmm defs getting parker and not sure about second upgrade, fray is cheaper but jack and duncan are consistent

  • ok need some advice:

    Opponent has Roughead, X Ellis, Johnson, Bartel. Has no cover in bacline for Ellis or Bartel, no for Johnson. Has Duffy on bench for Roughead but he may not get a game.

    His best case scenario is to trade Bartel and johnson, with Duffy playing. Means he will be 1 short.

    So I need to decide do I:

    Trade Johnson for Rockliff, and play Bews for Bartel


    Trade johnson for Priddis, and Bartel for Simpson (and go without Rockliff)

    Thoughts ?

  • second one, news is not really a legitamnt player

  • Ive got 2 trades left. In 4 leagues im in the prelim, in one league I gotta play this week.
    Do I save my trades and blow this league off or do I use and risk it?

    I’m thinking forget it this week but I just can’t bring myself to do it!!!!!!!

  • Who you trade for stevie j and bartel

    Maybe Steve j for sloane and bartel for hibberd? hodge? kelly?

  • Hey guys, need transfer advice.

    Do I
    1. Play dal santo and upgrade dahlhaus
    2. Put dal santo on mid bench (dpp with X.Ellis), play dahlhaus and upgrade Ellis to a prem defender.

    So it really depends on if dal santo will get tagged v bulldogs.
    Will he?

  • Kieren jack or buddy franklin?

  • Sam butler or jack crisp for F9?

  • Help Appreciated
    Which one should I do
    Bartel to Malceski and play Gary Rohan or
    Roughead to Chapman/Waie/Gray/Dangerfield and field Bews

    Then who should I get for Johnson

  • Good to see some big outs! Will hopefully jump up the rankings with good bench cover. Now bring on a late withdrawal

  • Heppell or Sidebottom!?

    Sidebottom probably the better option this wk v Brisbane, but finishes with the Hawks who he doesn’t play well against (who does!?).

    Heppell finishes with Carlton who he plays well against

  • How many have Johnson, Bartel & McGlynn? (You can toss in Carlisle too.)

  • What are people thoughts on Heath Shaw as a POD?

  • Any news on how long McGlynn, Bartel & Johnson are out for??

    If McGlynn and Bartel are only a week I’d like to keep them.
    Johnson might get traded regardless.

  • Want to get rid of Stevie, Goddard, Dalhaus or Bartel this week. Who would be top priority as I have Suckling on def bench and Caddy on mid bench. Currently thinking Johnson>Sloane and DAlhaus to Franklin.
