Position changes



  • Does anyone know how many games a player has to play in a position until opta and therefore fi change thier position. I hold ridle Baku a young player in the bundesliga. He has played in defence all season but is still down as a mid. If he gets the change would be great as he plays very forward and is always in the pb mix. If anyone knows that would be great



  • @NewUser499874 don’t think it’s as simple as that, you’d argue Sancho has played 99 times as a forward for Dortmund and he’s still a midfielder. The whole positon situation is rather random

    Unfortunately, the index tend to absolve themselves of any blame in this process by passing the buck onto OPTA.

    OPTA can and will change a players position at the drop of a hat several times throughout the course of the season. A fact which FI claim they can do nothing about ...

    It's a nonsense really. A players position should be set and locked at the start of that season, and only reviewed again at the start of the following season, or perhaps (at a push) during the midway point of the current season.

    Consistency, transparency and accuracy. That's all we need. 👍



  • It's been said in the statement today that positions will only change at the beginning of each season



  • @Lillychar1216 did it?! That’s great news!
