I have Saka and still taken a paggering since Saturday.
I think its highlighting the need to get out of certain types of players when they peak.
The issue with Costa is Wolves got rid of him cos they didn't think he was good enough for the Premiership and he has shown why with Leeds this season. He's caused teams problems but his lack of end product and goals is a massive concern. 1 assist for a winger starting every game now for a team second in the league is garbage. He's started and played 90 minutes in 8 out of the last 9 games and got 0 goals 0 assists.
Last two home games he has got round his full back numerous times only for the chances to go to waste.
I think people are securing profits off the back of his big rise a couple of weeks ago, coupled with the fact some people got on thinking he may start in either the cup game or come on in the league, neither which happened. He really needs PSG to get through in the Champs League, with the league all but sown up would mean he's likely to get game time there if they are resting for the champs league latter stages.
For me its a market that is grossly overvalued and over invested in, but that means you can make money in it.
Of course you can find a few gem players in there - James Maddison being a great example.
But Jarrod Bowen is now West Hams most expensive player on the index by over 60p. Completely unproven at the top level. Benhrahma and Watkins won't go to top 6 clubs imo, so then you are looking at them being the most expensive player on the Index for the likes of Southampton/Sheff United. I think you can make money but be very careful when you get off, unless you truly believe in a player i would sell as soon as they move.
My not so magnificent 7 are as follows:
Brekalo - As previously mentioned, very rarely gets a full game, hasn't scored since August. With Rebic now in great form for AC I think he'll only be a sub at the Euro's. He is a young player who a couple of good games could see him spike, just don't think he's kicked on this year like hoped.
Timothy Weah - I just don't rate him, think he's overhyped due to his surname. Another youngster who a goal or two off the bench could see fly but not convinced by him, certainly not at his current price. I can see why you'd hold on.
Pintamonti - Playing for a crap team and has not had a good season. Their other strikers Kouame and Pandev have managed to score goals when they have been playing. This guy hasn't. Doubt he has a future at Inter and will be loaned out again next season.
Barella - Can see why you would hold for the Euros as seems to be a regular for Italy but not impressed with him or his PB scores whilst at Inter.
Castrovili - Top PB of 119, seems to have faded after exciting start to the season, no chance of Italy squad. Don;t think he's done enough to get a move.
Dilrosun - They have moved to 3-5-2 with Piatex and Cunha up front, i don;t see where he fits in that system.
Ekkelenkamp - Good long term hold but i don't expect him to play much between now and the end of the season - he's already down 15p from his peak and can see that trend continuing in the short term
Ciro is a weird one for me.. I held last year and sold for a small profit at start of this season, obviously a massive mistake.
His record is amazing for Lazio, but I can't see him ever leaving Italy as when he has left before he hasn't done anything of note. He will start for Italy in the Euro's no doubt so might see a rise going into that tournament?
My word of warning is he's 30 this week, he's having his best season ever. That's surely factored into his price. I guess he could sustain it like Lewandowski has done, but he's been nowhere near as prolific as Lewa over the course of his career. I would def look to get out during the Euro's at the latest.
You bought them not on a peak, but after a substantial rise for PB players.
One of Kroos and de bruyne go down further after champs league 16 as one will be eliminated.
PB is a pretty volatile market, look at sensi and teji savanier, huge drops after big spikes. All it takes is a few bad scores or a change in set piece taker and their appeal goes. Sure it’s a market you can make a lot of money from too, but consistent pb scores and dividends are expected at that top end. Plus these players don’t have much media appeal
