I think Im royally screwed for the byes.
Rd12: 19 with Hollands Dixon Nod included so 16 really
Rd13: 18 again Noddy so 17
Rd14 23. Breathing room.
Trying to figure out upgrade plans for DEF now harder than expected.
Either get best avail or trade into Rd14 bye stepping stones to be moved on in those rounds. Hope they make some cash on the way.
Then gut their carcasses in a Rd14 triple upgrade.
Other option is swing for the hills and just get the premos and to the hell with it.
Pick worst round say Rd12. Sideways 3 premos out then get them straight back Rd13. Cost 6 trades.
One of these tactics may work.
Or just not worry about it then panic.
Yep, i figure it's better to plan for success than condemn yourself to failure by not doing so, if I stuff up at least I had a go.That would mean I need 18 players playing. Ergo my point.
Edited addition: making a plan in all this chaos is a lesson in risk management and mitigation.
And any plan is better than none at all.
First time I’ve tried to actually plan for the byes, what are your thoughts on this strategy?
Sinclair has the r12 bye.Have a quandary about the round 13, in that my preferred candidates for final defender both have that bye. Stewart, Sinclair. Picking one of those would reduce my round 13 keepers to 13 plus MRJ and Hayes. Should be able to pick up a one decent rookie, but still not great.
If only I had kept Cogs, not Martin I might have kept him till round 14. However I needed his cash to grab my preferred upgrade , Jelly Having committed to an early team completion I have to keep going.
