Midfield Make-Up

This year there has been plenty of conversations around… what we as DT Coaches are doing with our midfield make-up for 2011. Check out the possible make-ups you might already have.

This year there has been plenty of conversations around… what we as DT Coaches are doing with our midfield make-up for 2011.

Many people are going for the Gun/Rook strategy but others are saying they fancy the Gun, Mid-price man, rook approach…. which one are you?

NOTE: For the purpose of this discussion, lets call a rookie a dude that is priced under the 160k mark.

Gun, Gun, Gun, Gun… then roooooookies

These coaches are hitting hard early. Most likely have a Swan, Boyd, Montagna, Bartel or Ablett combo and then have the rookies filling the gaps. This is a solid approach but probably a little over board as they will have no money elsewhere to buy anyone of quality.

Gun, Gun, Gun… rooookies

A little more balanced, but probably still top heavy. This coach will certainly benefit from high scores early, but have they picked the top 3 guns? And will other coaches be able to snap up these players if they have a few bad games and drop in value.

Gun, Gun… roooookies

Wow, now we are nearly on the other side of the fence. This guy would have the Boyd/Swan combo and then have loaded up else where with rookies. The big question here is… will they find that many rookies who will be getting games on a regular basis.

Gun, Gun, Mid-Priced… roooookies

This guy is looking to either keep the MP or turn them into Ablett after he finishes his bye. Either way, it’s not a bad combo but a MP is risky. You’d be looking at Foley, McLean, Tambling and they are that 50/50 at the moment, it’s hard to call if they will hold together… if they even play.

Gun, Gun, Mid-Priced, Mid-Priced… rooooookies

Are you good enough to nail, 2 MP players? Wow… will be tough but if you know who they are and if you know they will kill it this year… go for it, a little risky in my book.

Gun… all roooookies

This guy has gone overboard so ignore the shit he’s dribbling to you, cause you’ll beat him easy!

So… what combo are you going with in your midfield at the moment.
