RE: Come on Agatello....20 IPOs to review
Well there seems to be some appetite for even the most obscure players but not anything that makes you think I need to be on that train.
Marlon Fossey got a respectable rise but the Fulham faithful didn't pick him out.
As expected Matt O'Riley jumped the most and there was definitely money to be made on the flip.
From the 12 o'clock bunch I still think Stefan Johansen might attract a bit of attention and Aboubakar Kamara, although not amazing does have a really cool nickname - AK47 to match his number, although it's tailor-made for headlines should he ever "shoot down" one of the bigs gun this season it's highly unlikely he'll make the top 200 so MB is out of the question.
I'll do the 3pm bunch later.
RE: Come on Agatello....20 IPOs to review
Haha, I'm just looking into this Matt O'Riley dude actually, coming on in 45 mins in the 10am slot.
He's had Arsenal, Utd and City sniffing around him within the last year or so and represented England at u16 and u18.
There's very limited information as to what type of midfielder he is and his statistics BUT we know the Index loves a promising youngster as they all chase the next star.
From the others so far I like the look of Stefan Johansen's stats, goalscoring pass master (more goals but less passes than Cairney) but a Fulham fan on Twitter suggested he might be the one to make way for Seri, although it's a long season and he's bound to get game time.
The other is Steven Sessegnon, we know he's Ryan's brother so there's kudos there and we know he played in the U17 WC winning side but so did Oakley-Boothe who's sitting at the same IPO price of 70p.
It's going to be interesting to see how these new IPO's go as we've had a massive break and an influx of new traders who are bound to want to see what it's all about. So today's offerings won't get you salivating but I wouldn't like to say if they'll flat line or jump at this stage as the dynamics have changed.
I'll write more once I've seen what happens to Matt O'Riley :-)
RE: 5 Defenders for 2018
Listen to the @Comrade he know's what he's talking about on this subject. In addition to this have a look here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1kc7_GhseWb1xXjxL2Y0W1gTgl-DwHGy884wZ7WIj9t4/edit#gid=0
From the OP list -
Vida - Statistically average in a very poor league, might rise in price with a move due to a decent WC but can't any Buzz value here.
Lovren - Simply not a fan for various reasons, expect VVD to outscore him every time.
Keane - Get a grip :-)
Romagna - No sign of a goal anywhere but if he's gonna be a star there's obvious value based on that.
Lenglet - Now you're talking, great goal ratio, doubt he's gone to warm the bench at Barca, great on the ball. Still cheap. Pique is getting on, Umtiti is erratic, Lenglet will soon be their go to man.
I also like Issa Diop who has a good stats, only 21 and now at a potentially string West Ham side.
In addition to the above these are worth keeping an eye on :-
Hubner @ Hoffenheim, Marcano @ Roma, Naldo, Kehrer and Sane @ Schalke, Vestergaard @ Southampton, Lascelles @ Newcastle, De Silvestri @ Torino, Debuchy @ St. Etienne... Arias, Caldara, PVA, Feddal, Elustondo.... (got bored of writing the team out ha)
That St. Juste fella looks like FI Gold @AdamG defo worth buying if he gets a move, so thanks for sharing that one.
Great topic by the way, think there's so many mentioned that will double in value which can't be said for £6 midfielders any time soon!
RE: Goalkeeper situation this window
Yep Alisson has definitely skewed the GK market, as rightly mentioned the WR price and singular name has created a bit of Media Buzz anomaly. If he does drop out of the Top 200 which could well happen then there will be a LOT of traders holding GK's and thinking WHY? (unless they get their own category but that's an entirely different story in itself).
So in my opinion, well done to those who've rode the GK train and made money on it but it's one that could seriously derail at any moment so be careful.
RE: Will he stay or will he go???
On a pure footballing front I think he's a great player, but statistically he scores 1 in 20ish which doesn't make him any more valuable than Bailly at Utd for me. Smalling is probably their most prolific defender from what I can see.
RE: Yerry mina
@Porkisgood yep that's one bonus but if he's as slow as they make out he'd be a disaster for Poch's highline. However wouldn't it be nice to get excited about winning a corner and feel safer when facing a Stoke or West Brom in the dying seconds (Yeah I know they're both gone but you know what I mean)
It's almost impossible to answer without knowing what your trading strategy is...
If you're after guaranteed Dividends over the season then players like Ramos, Otamendi and Kolarov would be solid bets (Defenders are your best bet on this because they generally all fall under the £3 mark - the most reliable mids n fwds for Dividends are generally £4+)
If you're just after Capital Appreciation then you'll get hundreds of suggestions of which I'd generally ignore the masses of No 9's people push fwd.
If you're after a mix of the above with a logical thought process you could look at the likes of Atalanta's Gomez and Illicic, Europa League qualified, love to get on the ball, score goals and capable of big scores. I only currently have one of those two so not plugging my own stock. If you're not put off by the elder players you'll probably find Iago Aspas is a very solid bet but there's so many its hard to just pick 3.
