Ok so was partly taking the piss this year with a bit of a meme bench throwing 2 centres,carty and chee kam and a cold burton after getting bored halfway into the round with all teams looking similar and going out round one with a chuckle but now I am excited for this new challenge
To be honest it could have been worse if Milford had of started too and Carty/Chee kam kinda suprised me to be honest so this can be salvaged or at least be an interesting lesson for people who may want to quit after a bad start.
Perhaps it was seeing Carty with his long strides down the field that got me excited to turn this around or maybe just plain old nostalgia
Part of the reasons I started this 'party' was the group thinking/hivemind that can ofter override peoples decision thinking to select certain players. Call it selective bias but piling on a so called bad player because you got burnt even though on paper they seem a good option isn't great
I wanted to make it easier and a fun way to help others so created these which have taken on a form of their own
Anyways for anyone new here or below the age of 30 I haven't done one of these for years but the reason for starting this whole 'assistant coach' was more to hold myself accountable for my decisions and use my mistakes as learnings
It was created to not only show people that no matter how bad you start you can fix your team but also a self learning tool
It's easy to throw around 50 players names and focus on your hits while hiding your misses, but it's much harder to share your trades in advance here in a thread then back it up for a whole season.
You won't get them all right and thats the point, but lying to yourself and others or bending stats/opinions or semi autistic fixation on certain players to simply prove something to a bunch of randoms isn't healthy haha
Anyways if you were always right you would win every year so lets be honest here and simply make calculated good trades without overthinking them
I am going to be honest I don't have the stamina for fancy graphs or massive breakdowns, compiling stats or trawling throuch excel spreadsheets like my younger days but will happily answer questions or explain my reasoning
Disclaimer: I am slightly more risk adverse due to the care factor now as not here to prove or win anything just have some fun, so please consider any advice or decision I make for my own team to be without risk.
Be accountable for your own actions
TLDR: If you are lazy call in here before thursday to copy trades
