T Mitchell:
Avg VS Carl since 2015: 132.8 from 5 (low of 81 and a high of 192, 2/5 below 100, 3/5 120+, 2/5 160+)
Last 3 VS Carl: 144.67 from 3 (low of 81 and a high of 192, 1/3 below 100, 2/3 160+)
2018 Wins Avg: 128.86 from 15 (2/15 below 100, 9/15 120+, 4/15 150+)
2018 Losses Avg: 129.57 from 7 (2/7 below 100, 4/7 145+)
2020 Wins Avg: 119.33 from 3 (1/3 below 100, 1/3 120+)
2020 Losses Avg: 101 from 5 (2/5 below 100, 1/5 120+)

Last 2 VS Blues:
RD18 2018= 192
RD22 2017= 161
Thought I remembered some big ones against us.
Couldn't barrack for him today though it just wouldn't feel right.
Curnow to keep him to 100 (still a good score for my team but not captainworthy) and Neale to get 160 tonight.

I’m a bit concerned about his fitness - just had his worst game in years I believe, and has gone low in DT two of the last three. I didn’t see the game but gather he didn’t look great?

Weighing up him vs Neale, who has 2 90s and 5 c. 120-150 type scores vs Essendon in recent years.
He wasnt the only Pie to have his worst game of the year last week. Im gonna back him in - this is the reason I forked out for him to begin with. I also dont own Neale though so I cant say as to whether Id be going down that road.

I also had the VC on Gawn. Grundy is the obvious C choice but I'm a bit concerned about his recent form and the influence of Cameron. My other possible candidates would be Jelly or Danger (or even new recruit Zerrett).

Ohhhh no, Neale has been locked in with the C all week and now I see this.

Arhhhhhhh, now comes the overthinking part. And the sick feeling when I make the wrong decision.

The Pies no answers for a rampant Eagles Outfit last week. Grundy will bounce back. Champions always do.

Ok so VC on Gawn didn’t work :)
should have gone Macrae in QLD of course

I have Doc, Sicily, Mitchell, Danger, or Grundy as captain candidates:
Doc: not scoring so well lately
Sicily: is he going to play forward..?
Mitchell: is Worpel hurting his scoring..?
Danger: no idea how he goes against WC
Grundy: carrying something? Cameron taking points off him..?

my league match up has the C on Neale :oops:
P Dangerfield:
Avg VS WC since 2012: 124.9 from 10 (low of 94 and a high of 156, 2/10 below 100, 7/10 120+)
Last 3 VS WC: 111.67 from 3 (low of 94 and a high of 141, 1/3 below 100, 1/3 120+)
2019 Wins Avg: 117.13 from 15 (6/15 below 100, 8/15 120+)
2019 Losses Avg: 110.33 from 6 (2/6 below 100, 3/6 120+)
2020 Wins Avg: 115.8 from 5 (1/5 below 100, 2/5 140+)
2020 Losses Avg: 95 from 3 (2/3 below 100, 1/3 120+)

@Connoisseur thanks for all the stats 😎

I must say it is refreshing to have locked in a C score, thanks Lachie 😄

Good luck to all those who have not yet locked one in, personally I hope Grundy goes as well as Neale for those whom are on him 😎
That's so noble and kind of you to say that...I hope you're right on the money and Grundy goes 200+:D
