Stress is a normal part of day-to-day life. When it comes to a weekend in the footy season, these tend to rise – not just for the supporter in the stadium, but more the hundreds of thousands of coaches around the globe who are managing their SuperCoach team.
A players breakeven is a vital tool that helps coaches track the progress of each individual player, and is pivotal to utilise when trading.

There is no right or wrong amount of trades to have; sometimes we have to trade for injuries, suspensions and of course to upgrade our teams. However, going into the back end of the season, it is critical to take a thorough look at how we are trading. You don’t want to be in the position where you have no trades going into the last four rounds, neither do you want to have more than 8, meaning you can’t use them all up. Continue Reading
