Lefty’s In-Vestments – Round 5 Part 1

Welcome back to Lefty’s In-Vestments, where I will have a crack at picking the dreaded green vests for each weeks games. This is Part 1 of round 5, so here are my predicted greenies for the first 2 games of this round.

This is Part 1 of round 5, so here are my predicted greenies for the first 2 games of this round.

 

Collingwood Magpies

In – Goldsack

Out – J. Thomas

Last 4 Subs – Dwyer, Seedsman, Fasolo, D. Thomas

Lefty’s #1 Sub – Seedsman

Lefty’s #2 Sub – Dwyer

 

Essendon Bombers

In – Colyer, Crameri, Hardingham

Out- Pears, Hurley, Melksham

Last 4 Subs – Zaharakis, Kommer, Colyer, Winderlich

Lefty’s #1 Sub – Davey

Lefty’s #2 Sub – Merrett

 

Saint Kilda Saints

In – Dempster, Saunders, Lee, Murdoch, Koschitzke

Out- Simpkin, Maister, Milera, Milne, Ray

Last 4 Subs – Dennis-Lane, Schneider, Ray, Ross

Lefty’s #1 Sub – Saunders

Lefty’s #2 Sub – Murdoch

 

Sydney Swans

In – Bird, Everitt

Out- LRT, Morton

Last 4 Subs – Armstrong, Bird, Bird, Morton

Lefty’s #1 Sub – Bird

Lefty’s #2 Sub – Armstrong

 

So there you have it – my views on the likely vests for the first 2 games of this round. Hope this helps you in deciding who to start on the field (or even trade in/out)

I will do the other 7 games tomorrow night once teams are announced.

Enjoy the magical atmosphere of one of my favourite games of the year – the hairs stand up on every true Australians neck when that bugle starts playing at the start of the Pies and Bombers blockbuster.

Lest we forget – raise a glass to remember our brave servicemen.

Lefty

      I would think macafe is the real risk Dwyer will not be sub

    You will be able to bench him if he is before partial lockout

    Where is a reliable site to find out late changes and especially the sub for any game? AFL.com, since it has been “improved” has become decidedly unfriendly to the point of being fantasy irrelevant. Despite advertising being “the first for all the teams” they did not have the Pies vs Dons teams yesterday until very late, after a number of other sites.

      The AFL’s twitter is a quite reliable source of info, also the DT Talk twitter.

      Mayes has better JS. But Evans has better cash generation in the short term.

      Both I reckon have good js considering where there teams are, Mayes edges on class but doesn’t mean he will out score Evans.

      Start with Mayes on the field. He’s only up against Melbourne. Might even get a bit more time on the ball with Rich out injured.
      Flip a coin re the Port boys.

      Hird says they are going to try and limit swans impact on the game. So with that in mind yes I would if I could but I can’t which sucks

      Can be risky. Tried it a couple of weeks ago and got caught a player short when Beau Waters dropped out at the last minute and I was not tuned in to get the info.

    Thanks lefty
    It is a tough article this one.
    Just wondering what do u think Mayes chances are of getting the vest?
    Or should I just play it safe and go either dyer or macaffer on the field as I will know if they are the sub or not.

      brisbane are playing melbourne so its very unlikely they will play mayes sub against such an easy side

      With Hanley, McGrath and Rich injuries, I would’ve thought one of the replacements would be prime candidates for the vest. If not them, then there are a couple of guys already in the team who would be ahead of Mayes IMO (Paperone, Docherty).

      So no chance.

        I would think Neade will get green or red this week, Dwyer won’t be sub and Colyer will be for Ess not merret.

    Now we know Goldsack has the Green vest who to start out of Maccafer or Dwyer. I’m putting Neade on the bench as don’t want to risk the chance of him getting the gree. (which I doubt, and he will score pretty low I think vs Eagles)

      April 25, 2013 at 1:51 pm

      I have none of them on my field. Dwyer is my MID emerg, Caff is my FWD emerg and Neade is FWD bench

        April 25, 2013 at 1:58 pm

        Then are you starting rookies which haven’t even been named to play yet or could be a potential green vest sub? I know we can still change our teams and I haven’t made any trades yet, as I will wait for full teams and today’s games won’t affect my plans.

          April 25, 2013 at 2:00 pm

          from your post I take it you would put Caff before Dwyer so thanks.
