Regarding dividends and your player scoring over 1,000 MB points, did you buy the player after 2pm that day? If so, you will not have been eligible for MB dividends until the following day.

RE: Sadio Mane conundrum
I've read lots of posts referring to the African Nations tournament, but unless I'm missing something, I struggle to see the significance. It's not eligible for PB or IPD, so unless a player does something outrageous (i.e. score 5 goals in a game or punch the ref) to win MB, I can't see any obvious benefit.
On the subject of Mane, he's a quality player in real life, but unfortunately lives in Salah's shadow in FI terms. The same can be said of a lot of Barcelona players and Messi.
I think you may have bought him at a peak period (i.e. in the build up to a major match), when prices are inflated. But having bought at £3.40, I wouldn't recommend selling now. Hold and he'll probably rise up to £3.75 or £4 at some point before Christmas.
RE: Sub 40p players list
Yeah, Sam Field is a promising young player and English, a perfect combination on FI! Already up to 31p.
Fingers crossed Bilic gives him lots of game time next season and he starts to generate transfer spec (or Albion get promoted).
RE: Why would you 'Bale' out!
Spurs would have to be stupid to take Bale back. Yes, he's still a good player, but he could cost two or three times more (in terms of combined transfer fee, wages and signing on fee) than someone like Donny van de Beek.
Bale is a former World Class player, who will miss 10-15 matches every season through injury and who in 5 years time will be almost worthless.
van de Beek is a future World Class player, who will spend a lot less time injured and who in 5 years will probably be worth double or treble what he is now.
I can't see Levy throwing lots of money down the drain on Bale.
As Utd have found out with Sanchez, signing ageing players on big contracts is a massive risk. A loan deal might make Bale look more attractive, but even then Spurs would probably need to contribute £300k + towards his £500k+ wages. That's a massive amount of money.
RE: Sub 40p players list
Kwon Chang-Hoon, 24 years old
Dijon attacking midfielder. Had a great 2017/18 season, scoring 11 goals in 34 league matches and attracting interest from bigger clubs, including Spurs. Spent a significant part of 2018/19 out injured, but returned towards the end of the season and scored an important goal in the relegation playoff to keep Dijon in Ligue 1 next year.
RE: Where do I put my De Ligt money?
Yes, he's 32, but he's also only 50p and delivered 23p in dividends last season (i.e. a massive 46% yield).
Central defenders usually age better than other positions, so I think he can remain a regular at Barcelona for another couple of seasons, even if De Ligt joins. If not, his 2p spread makes it easy to bail out for minimal loss.
