    Oh dear. I started the year with Ennis and traded him to Friend in about Round 3. He's too much of a frustrating ratbag.

    At least I got him cheap and got all his good scores before the mass trade-in broke him.

    Hopeless stuff from Friend and Mitchell. 740 for the week and down to 39th. At least I didn't bring in Gallen and Cordner.

    Looking ahead to finalizing my 17 next week...

    Cleary to Thurston

    or

    ETaylor to Parker

    or

    Neither

    Leaves 17 as

    Smith, Friend
    Fifita, Surgess, Graham
    Mannering, James, Merrin, Whitehead, Taylor/Parker
    SJ, Cleary/Thurston
    BJ, Aitken
    Tedesco, Munster, CWalker

    JWH, Mitchell and Guth as cover.

    lol G-Train never went below 40 in any game he played this year until the week I bought him in. Y'know I sold Gutherson to get him instead of keeping Gutherson and bringing in Mannering. So in essence I cost myself 86 points for the week because I wanted a POD.
    I'd given up on Fantasy and wanted to get a less popular player and I was 11k short to get Gallen so all I could do was sell Gutherson to get him because Mannering was so popular he'd make no difference to my ranking.
    Oh well I'll keep in mind next time the mind knows better than the heart.

    Share your pain with Mitchell and Friend but I have Copley as 18th man.

    Just sitting behind you up 33 places to 43rd overall, 882 points. Gutted I didn't make 900 given all 4 players only have to average just over 30 each

    Brought in Bird (35) and Walker (69) for Lolohea (1) and Norman (0) so was probably the difference in our H2H

    Just watching Matty Johns, mentioned Lolohea had 5 clubs approach his manager with club offers, all starting in either 1 or 6
    It's crazy to think what they are doing to him, burnt 2 trades on him as well but couldn't plan for idiot coaches..

    I think POD's are over rated.
    Your team is made up of 17 players, not 1.

    List of players I've ruined this year

    Milf- Got sick of people above me getting his 80's. Bought him in and hasn't gone over 50 since I owned him
    Leilua- Got a 41 the week I bought him and been shithouse since then.
    G-Train- Evidence speaks for itself tonight

    Well yeah but it becomes boring when everyone has the same players. When your whole plan year after year revolves around getting the same guns then where's the fun in that? In 2014 I bought Michael Gordon as a replacement for Teddy and he was actually a great POD who averaged around 40.
    I for one could sit here and say I got Mannering's score of 70 but well everyone did so big woop. POD's make it fun otherwise I really don't see the point in playing the game if your goal is just to make the same team as everyone else except getting there quicker.

    Cappy is on a power trip and doesn't like Tui for whatever crazy reason.
    The kid is full of talent and is one of the better trainers too.

    I'm sure if the Warriors miss the 8 Cappy will be sacked, and then hopefully a logical coach will come in (Arthur, Toovey, Cleary)

    Going into the game with both Copley and Gallen, I wouldn't have fucking believed that useless Copley would outscore Thomas the tank engine, good lord this game!!

    I was tossing up who was to make way for a Teddy next week. Mitchell answered that for me tonight.
    2 trades next week leaves the Beagles looking like this.
    Smith, Friend
    Fifita, Graham, Trbojevic, NPR,
    Mannering, Merrin, Surgess, JDB, Whitehead, Capewell
    DCE, Hunt, Cleary, Hughes
    Croker, Aitken, Green, Scott
    Tedesco, Munster, Barba, Gutherson, NPR.
    6 trades and about 15-20k.
    Cashing out Green will allow me to upgrade someone to whoever I want.
    Main options at this stage are Johnson, Gallen and James.

    Team for next week and forseeable future will be

    Smith, Macca
    Fifita, Brom, Graham, Tolman
    Thompson, Mannering, Surgess, Carty, Taylor, Whitehead
    Cleary, Milf, NPR, NPR
    Aitken, BJ, Hurrell, NPR
    Munster, Teddy/BMoz, Barba, Gutherson, NPR

    Will think long and hard over who to grab out of Teddy and BMoz and then toss a coin

    A bit embarrased about my halves line up this year, but with other areas constantly needing fixing never got around to it

      Current date/time is Sun Feb 26, 2017 6:41 pm
