Cheap Players



  • @Golfing-Grandad most of my profile is all below £1-£150 max, you minimise your risk as its low risk, but can be very high reward if you get on a player that will move to a bigger club, free transfers are the best example, as there %100 going to move, and English teams can afford the bigger wages to attract them to the premership especially with out paying a transfer free so even more money for wages.



  • @Golfing-Grandad

    I got doucoure at 1.22, just hoping for that big transfer in the summer!

    Very good post, cant say I know much about your guy from Basil, and i am always wary about investing in players out with the top 5 leagues, incase it don't happen.

    But my favourite of your picks there is Jonathan Bamba, Scored for the U21s this week, out of contract in the summer, so you know it will definitely happen, and as theres no transfer free, everyones intreated and the English teams can afford to pay more in wages, so free transfers normally come to England, I have basically built my profile around free transfers, hovering them all up now while cheap and over shadowed by the world cup, then when the money changes from WC to Transfers, boom



  • @SMacFI I like your thinking. I need to start revision on who’s available for nothing this summer then!!!



  • @SMacFI
    Mason Mount not doing too bad today. Up 20%. Sure will drop but these are my long term investments anyway and I reckon they’ll be England players in 2-3 years. Plus I’ve got plenty of Futures in the big boys and good potential PB players.
    Was only answering the question and when I brought them all at close to there IOP think they’re great value.
    Each to their own



  • @Golfing-Grandad gotta say I agree with this completely. Due to the smaller price as well it means less of a rise is still a great % return. For example I made 29.1% ROI after picking Jonathan Bamba up for 47-48p. I made 7% on frenkie Dr jong (75p) 14% on Marcus Acuna (52p) and 16.2% on Jamie Vardy (97p). And that's just to name a few. It's a really good route to go down.



  • @Golfing-Grandad Max Meyer, liverpool, arsenal, man u links. Jonathan Bamba very exciting u21 winger. My personal fav Mario Baloitelli, 21 goals in 27 games for an average french team, MB magnet if came to prem. Asamoah, juve, Chealsea links. Amin Younes, google them all do your own reserch. But free transfers yiy know they wull move, unlike 20 players getting liked to one club, only one will move.

    Good work on getting these little gems so frequently. If people are working towards a 5-10% ROI, then 29.1% on one player is just utter filth (in a good way!). Seems the rewards are big and the risk is much smaller...only thing I would worry about is if the transfers didn’t happen, would you just have to instant sell as these players wouldn’t be being picked off in the queue as nobody would really know of them/want to buy them off you?

    I’ve seen Max Meyer but sadly already gone up quite a bit this week (was thinking of getting him but didn’t think his price would alter for a few weeks yet with WC coming up and people’s attention being on that) and am always worried about buying in when they’ve just had a decent rise as biggest fear is buying at peak and then not having anything to sell at. I also take your point you mentioned in the other post about how if they’re from outside the top 5 leagues then it’s dangerous if they don’t move. Makes total sense. On the optimistic flip-side, if they do move then their price should fly if they’re 75p outside top 5 leagues and then move into qualifying for PB every single week, then increase should be quite good?



  • Yeah I am also never a fan of buying on a peak, but then some players just don't stop and you could have bought in a few time over and still made profit, IMO Mayer will break the £2 barrier at some stage, the way i see it were a long time away from the business end of the transfer window yet, so any movement now is minimal to whats to come, get in early be patient and theres only one way them players are going when the WC cash comes flooding back in to the transfer market. if you find any other good free transfers while your looking give me a shout



  • @NewUser136187 I have always wanted to get on Doucoure but always other opportunities beat me to it , can see him hitting £2 easy if a transfer happens.



  • @SMacFI more ‘when then ‘if’ mate! ;)



  • When you see Phil foden at £1.61 then theres value i think in players like brewster and hudson odoi. £1.11 and 0.97 respectively and the other U20 world cup winning player who may be getting a shout of 1st team minutes.



  • @SMacFI
    With younger players who will likely move like Bamba and others who have been mentioned, is that to sell at the peak of interest maybe just before it’s official or is it a plan to keep long term? Because a player like him would increase in value for sure but once the move is done I can’t see them getting a lot of PB or MB so therefore their value could drop again?



  • @Golfing-Grandad yeah basically. Which could be said if anyone didn't transfer regardless of the price. The beauty of Bamba is he's a free at the end of the season and has said he is definitely leaving St Ettiene. Add to that the links to the premiership and I predicted a high likelihood he would rise. I just decided to take the profit in case the worst happened and he got injured or agreed a move out of left field to maybe a Porto or an Ajax or something who aren't in a qualifying league. Very happy to turn potential into profit even if it means losing out on a little bit more profit.



  • @FranklynMary every single player regardles of quality peaks before the transfer then drops a bit after. Newcastle will improve next year and have become a bit of a feeder club, if bamba had a good season at newcastle, imagine his worth then, hes already proven at U 21 level. Every one has differant stratagies and exit points, thats the great thing wth the index



  • @FranklynMary yeah that's where your understanding of the market comes in. If they go to a team in Europe it may be a shout to hold for PB or a top team in their country. But you need to know they're gonna go and be regular starters. See what similar players with similar PB scores are valued at. It's about your own gut instincts really on whether to sell or hold.



  • Another prime example of how there are opportunities everywhere... Diego Reyes of Porto. He's a Uruguay centre half and I'll 95% certainty be at the world cup. And Uruguay have just had two bad injuries to centre halves. So he'll likely start. And again he's at a low price of 64p. Definitely some potential to rise considering Uruguay are very likely to romp their group and keep clean sheets along the way. This is one I fancy to get to at least 90p before/during the group stages.... Nearly 33% rise... Would be lovely. Always new opportunities based on the situations that arise.



  • Filipe Luis makes an easy short term flip returning from injury. Still only 84p and was £1.18 prior to his injury



  • On the cheap players bracket I picked up the below
    Caldara, goalscoring dedender currently on loan at Atalanta, going back to Juventus at the ne of the season to replace their aging stars, currently at 75p, can see him hitting £1.25 easily next year for a 50% ROI
    Bentancour, young mid up and coming at Juve, didn’t play much this season as being blooded in the team, sure starter for Uruguay at the WC, currently at 90p, great atata when he plays and not goal shy, can hit Pjanic benchmark of £1.80, 100% ROI
    Lastly Diallo, French U21 Captain, playing in a poor team at the moment, Arsenal amongst other teams are sniffing around, can see him moving/be at the centre of a transfer saga and hit £1 soon
