@Dan-The-Man said in Re-evaluating Player Values Post IPD Promotion:
This is true in the sense that you can't predict the changes that Football Index are going to make, however certain players are simply resilient to change and always will be, because they're simply fantastic players with excellent and consistent underlying number.
Many said the same of Pogba's PB this time last year, but the man won 2p in a year.
We often forget that it's not really the player who wins us the PB. It's the managers system and his team. For example, if a team loses more often, their players will have fewer opportunities to win PB.
If Ole decides Pogba is going to sit deep with Bruno being the playmaker, Pogba's assists and key passes drop.
If Telles joins Man Utd and takes over penalties, Bruno misses out on vital PB points.
They built around Messi at Barca in the past but Koeman might not and Messi isn't competing with KDB at Barca. Who's to say which one becomes the focal point at City.
Thiago picked up crazy amounts of PB at Bayern where they dominate every game and play everything through him/Kimmich... but that's not the way Liverpool play.
If Klopp decides to focus more attacks down the Left this year, Trent might see a drop off in his PB, with Robertson seeing an improvement.
Kane just pulled out 4 assists in match with Son scoring 4, have they switched roles under Jose?
We can try make some educated guesses based on the near future and the recent past, but trying to predict what the situation of any player 2-3 years from now, given all the changes... I just don't think it's reasonable.
Spot on, football changes all time, no player is a ‘safe’ hold imo.
People pigeon hold some players like they will be playing in the same position, same manager, same system, same matrix for the entirety of their career.............
What about a striker who scored hardly any goals and gets a transfer - people will look at that record and say he’s shit but in the new team he has better service......if you do your research their are massive bargains.....
