    Just really to track my team. We probably need a 'stories' section. Anyway...

    Last season I did ok. This season is off to a shit-ish start. I'm going to use this topic to track my team, decisions, thoughts etc. I've tried to go back through last seasons' topics to get some insights into how I approached things but this is a pain in the arse and I gave up.

    Feel free to pipe up in here if you have any thoughts.

    Lessons learned from last season:
    - don't drink and trade
    - don't drink and make captain decisions

    Week 1 team:

    Cook (c)
    Fifita Napa
    Arrow Murray Gillett
    Morgan Keighran
    Holland Burns
    Tedesco Edwards CNK

    Macca Garner Nikora Brown
    Sele Rava Sivo Garrick

    Scored 846 (rank 8,608 for the round)

    Week 2 trade thoughts

    Players on the radar to ditch
    - Under performers vs expectations (role, mins, involvement, score): Arrow, Holland, Edwards and Napa
    - Potential failed cow: Garrick

    My gut says to jump off Arrow. The new me says 'no' - give it some time and save those trades. I don't really like Holland or Edwards but need to trust my picks for now.

    Highly likely trade decision:
    - Napa to Lawrie and bank the other trade


    Edit, actual trade decision:
    - Edwards and Holland OUT
    - Bateman and Lawrie IN

    Round 2 team (final)
    Cook (c)
    Fifita Lawrie
    Arrow Murray Gillett
    Morgan Keighran
    Bateman Nikora
    Tedesco Burns CNK

    Macca Garner Brown Sele
    Napa Rava Sivo Garrick

    Teddy and Edwards won't combined for so few points again IMO so things will turn around.

    What you got planned mate? I cant remember, although I do recall you basically outed yourself as a soft-cock these days Smile

    EDIT: beat me to it Smile

    I dont mind the one trade idea mate! But I think you may well have to bite the bullet on an underperformed next week to free up cash and deal with your shittest cow.

    I also think if Bateman has another big minute game its gonna be a tough season without him in your side early.

    Good luck bro!

    Thanks R&T, I appreciate it mate.

    I have a bit of a semi at the moment so am very tempted to do Edwards to Bateman as the 2nd trade. It stinks of upgrade as I wasn't really convinced on Edwards anyway...

    Look forward to seeing how your journey goes this year
    Looks like you are off to a solid start

    Trade looks good, guessing you are giving Garrick another go or waiting for another bottom priced cashie to come along?

    As long as it's the trade that stinks and not your semi you should be ok - although keep an eye on it Smile

    Round 2 score 870 (round rank 847 / overall 1749)

    Improvement but still way off the pace.

    Round 3 trades were Gillett to Bird and Morgan to X

    I was a bit embarrassed by those. Really chasing now but it looks like I jumped off Gillett ahead of the curve.

    Lets see what Morgan does..... and Mr X

    Haha. Gotta hate those truth gins.

    The Gillet trade certainly paid off. Hope Reynolds does the same for you.

    Well, it seemed to work out ok

    885 for the round, round rank 507. Overall 141st

    Concerns:
    - burning too many trades
    - Burns injury either needs to be covered by Sivo/Rava or I need to trade a WFB in
    - Arrow looks busted....
    - Macca not a keeper (not urgent)
    - Cook not scooting (not urgent)

    >>> I could do Arrow to Rein and Burns to RTS (or Ponga)

    Macca
    Fifita, Bromwich
    Arrow, Murray, Nikora
    Morgan, Brown
    Bateman, Capewell
    Teddy, CNK, Burns

    Friend, Lawrie, Garner, Bird

    Keighran, Host, Sele, Ravalawa


    Will probably hold Burns. Play Ravalawa

    Friend OUT, Rein IN
    Sele OUT, Cartwright/Xerri IN

    Cartwright would be in 17, Brown NPR.
    Xerri I could loop with Bird.

      Current date/time is Fri Apr 19, 2019 5:22 am
