There was no real plan of who to upgrade first. Starting with 6 mid "premos" made it pretty easy to finish up, it was either like for like when one of them got injured or 1 of 2 actually upgrades.A great read and congrats on a great year.
Interesting in that you almost had a completely upgraded midfield before you upgraded your first fwd premo into your team.
When you traded Zerret in was it in your midfield or fwd line? Spose it didn't matter as you could swing him with Kerridge if and when needed.
Was the aim to upgrade your mids and backs before your fwd line...or was it just the way it panned out because the bottomed out players you traded in just happened to be mids and defs at the time? And you were happy to have Kerridge onfield compared to other rookies on the other lines?
Cheers and congrats on a great year
Gray just happened to be at a good price when I got him in to finish the mids and rookies on other lines were still getting games and had a bit more mooing to do.
ZMerrett was traded in as a FWD, but was plenty of DPP switching with the likes of Kerridge, CEllis, Tippa, Petracca, etc so it made it easy.
I've always thought DEF was the easiest line to upgrade on, and spent the first half of the year waiting for Simpson to throw in his annual s**tehole score like he's done every other year I've had him but this year he was a star all the time so it took a while longer than expected.
Fwds took so long because whenever I was about to trade one in something went wrong, like that week Zorko was randomly out.
