    lol, Coaches must some massive holes in their teams if they are still fielding De Goey. I would rather field Burgess or Koschitzke over De Goey and move out Jordan Clark. Having said that now though, De Goey will probably pump out 120 this weekend.

    Trade CJ Jiath to May or Hall? or just hold CJ?

    • Farmer wants a Fyfe

      May 7, 2021 at 9:47 am

      It’s a luxury trade to move on CJ, you’d be better off trying to upgrade a rookie. If you do move him on, Hall is the better option with his price / role change / upcoming fixtures

        Wel farmer what do you reckon of these trades, upgrade O’Brien to Grundy or is that a luxury trade also??
        And downgrade Rowe or Gulden to Collier-Dawkins?

      campbell and meek can go, get bryan and rcd/byrnes and save cash for next week to upgrade ROB and CJ for grundy/someone else

    • Bailey McNicholl

      May 7, 2021 at 2:58 pm

      Meek > N Bryan
      Edwards > Cunnington / Ward or Daicos. Your choice mate.

      Good luck.

    • Joseph rankine

      May 7, 2021 at 3:04 pm

      Depends on your team line up, they are both great picks
      I would go Walsh because he’s been on fire lately

  8. Geraldine

    Or downgrade Flynn to Bryan and upgrade Gulden to Hall or Kelly?

    Is upgrading O’Brien to Grundy a luxury trade or a smart trade?

  10. Nathan Grant

    May 7, 2021 at 6:56 pm

    Should I trade out Jiath or Gulden and who to bring in out of Kelly or Hall?

  11. Gav

    May 7, 2021 at 7:05 pm

    Upgrade Flynn to Nank this week, or cop a donut and upgrade to Gawn next week?

    Tex and his 20.

    Glad I got rid of him this week.
    Ziebell’s 95 was much better.
