Seen Almiron mentioned elsewhere - and just wondering whether there's any logic behind this, apart from the fact his price was severely inflated following his transfer?
His average PB was 68, with a high of 117 - and he didn't ever threaten MB.
If you look at the prices of some other Newcastle players who have all won PB this season - Perez (62p) Rondon (46p) Schar (34p) - I'm not sure of the reasoning that Almiron should hold his current price, let alone increase?
So I thought he was very inflated after his transfer, even if he had come in and done well - which he has not.
However, whilst clearly low on confidence at the moment, he's still starting games, has all the raw ingredients and is looking to be involved. He is capable of improving his end product - which has been pretty woeful so far.
There should be a spot in the future where he 'comes good' which may provide a better opportunity to sell, or stop the rot on his value. We've looked better since Bruce has gone back to Rafa formation (surprise, surprise), and run of fixtures now is pretty good, relatively.
Really though should always ask yourself when considering whether to hold or not - would I buy this player at the moment?
@Ericali Kimmich got booked in the first half so is suspended for the second leg. Not predicting he'll fall off a cliff, but could certainly help him drop a little more than he has been doing recently.
On the flip-side of that, he's the stand-out performer in the Bayern back 4 atm (5 if you count Neuer, who seems to want to gift Liverpool a goal every time the ball is at his feet)
He was one that was certainly tipped at the beginning of the season to do well, both by FI traders and podcasts. I have kept an eye on him without investing but his goal ration hasn't been great (aware his isn't in a great team). At present i would say there are better players to put your money. Maybe one to keep an eye out for once the season ends.
I don’t mind being patient on a few players. Thought he could be a good choice with him being so cheap and Everton being known for giving youngsters a chance. Got Chong and Gomes from Man Utd and hoping their price will increase in a year or two.
Ah damn. I’ve been looking at it all wrong. Thanks very much. I understand now. I was thinking I could just withdraw the profit I had made like on a betting site. Not planning on selling any at the moment so will just have to put more money in.
