    Scharenberg to Joel Smith
    Marchbank to Martin

    Looking to trade Marchbank to Dusty via Lloyd and then go Martin to Darcy. Then hold Greenwood and put Lloyd on field thoughts?

    • Lovin the first trade, the second trade is gutsy and will be great if it pulls off.

  • Need help with trades this week. Have 16k in the bank!
    Suggestions welcome

    Doch, Laird, Shaw, Adams, Newman Scharenberg,(Witherden,Ryan)

    Rocky,Danger,Merrett,Tmich,Ablett,Hanners,JPK, Sidey( Mountford, Cunico)

    Martin, Jacobs( King, Cameron)

    Macrae, Buddy, Volt, Gray,Greenwood, Barrett(JKH, Beech)

  • Treloar or Dusty?!!?!!?!?!

  • Is anyone else out there starting to get really concerned with dollhouse.
    To me he looks very uninterested and every possession is a effort. He is surely a keeper or tradeable.

    • I traded him a couple weeks ago against everyones advice and one of the best moves I’ve made. He’s a headache and losing cash fast.

    • Yeah he was initially out the door this week but I kept him in the end. He is a headache. One of the first upgrades with Roberton who is in the same boat imo.

      You just know that they’ll get in a couple of score fest games at Etihad and burn you though…

      • He will probably suck me in with 2 good games coming and end up keeping him with 80s to follow.

        Unfortunately I have to keep him ATM for another fortnight at least (barring injuries for 1 weekend please) whilst I still have on the field Nank, PP and Witherden to sort out first

    • It’s because he is playing as a soul forward
      Last night moved into the midfield for the last quarter and got 39 points…
      So it’s a headache but a definite top 6 forward

      • He does have good soul, you’re right. Far from a definite top 6 forward though.

        • I reckon forwards are the toughest position this year. At least Dahl keeps doing just enough to stay off the tradar.

  • Dahl’s 85 is not so bad, was looking a lot worse earlier.

    Sneaky suspicion that’ll be me lowest on-field score this week.

    Looking for Captain Titch to go massive, and for Rocky to return to his best.

    • I wish I could predict my lowest score to be 85, I’m forced to field B Cox, Karpany, Parsons and Ryan this week. Only mids have an emergency.

      Hanley and Greenwood benched for a week. Hopefully no carnage next week so I can finally upgrade some rookies

      • Bugger, hope Greenwood returns next week for you. Sometimes it seems ya get all the outs and none of the ins. Good luck!

  • Good night last night 323/3

  • Yah! Laird finally pulled out a good score.

  • Rate my team and guess my rank

    Def: doc, Adams, Lloyd, newness, tuohy, Newman (Ryan,Willis)

    Mid: titch, danger, rocky, treloar, gaff, murph, jpk, witherden (greenwood, cousins)

    Ruc: grundy, stef (darcy, Cameron)

    Fwd: yeo, Heeney, menegola, sheed, wingard, Walters (fisher, Pickett)

  • Scharenberg… Buckley you douche!

  • How long is Ablett out for?
    Do I need to trade him, for maybe Kelly or Zorko?

  • Kennedy late out

  • 57 for Treloar…

  • Was it a bad idea to trade heath shaw out for Doc? Or just take the burn cos doc will be better than him anyway, it was between Shaw>Doc or Greenwood>Wingard, did i fuck up or is this reasonable for the long run as i trust doc more than wingard

    • I’d concentrate on upgrading rookies at this time of the year, however Docherty should average 20-30 more than Shaw over the year

  • Jn Matchday I had JPK [C] and LYons[vc].
    OK I miss out on JPK but why isn’t the vc doubled?
    What’s the point of picking a vice captain?

  • Next week Roberton is gone from my team.

  • What happened to newnes in the last quarter. Didn’t score one at all

  • hey simon mate how about zorko!!!?? feel bad for baggin him now u just hatin cos he pigs up mate! aha laughin

  • Despite the 50’s from Treloar and Z. Jones… on 1901 with Doc, Murph, Yeo and Sheed to go

  • I’m on 1869 from 16(inc the cap danger so could count it as 17/23) with docherty, gaff, murphy, yeo, karpany and cox to go. Reckon ill get somewhere around 550 from those guys so hopefully could be around 2400 at the end of the round :D

  • I can’t complain about rookie, Witherden’s 80 as 6th Mid- he did better than Treloar. Even Stef was acceptable- better than Grundy. But Roberton has been going downhill ever since I brought him in.

  • Zorko as my captain this week, first time ever, pretty happy about that and will hopefully push me into the to 100

  • WTF Newnes? Nearly 69 at half time. Finishes on 87. My -3 votes.

    These defenders are starting to become a pain in the ass.

    • 85 at at the end of the 3rd quarter. Finishes on 87. Hardly the 110 I expected at that point.

      • He went down end of third quarter. Don’t think he came back on again. The 2 points weren’t scored in the 4th, they were added after the game as adjustment. It’s disappointing and hopefully not seriously injured but 87 from less than 3 quarters is not bad.

  • Who will go bigger today? Jared Polec or Ebert?

  • what’s wrong with issac smith? & Thoughts on shane savage?

  • Lift Mountford you freakin’ dud, i swear if you don’t ton up today…
