RE: A slightly different point of view on the current market
How many times will top players have been bought by other traders though over the years making FI 2%.
RE: Rashford or martial
I’d say martial. Better striker and better finisher. United have looked shit upfront since his injury. And with Rashford injured he’ll get a good run of games upfront. Can see him scoring a fair bit this year
This is a massive year for martial, personally think he can do what sterling did last year and really reach his potential.
RE: Milinkovic-Savic United?
Waited till now lol...
Genuinely wasn’t fishing mate. Our attack has been the problem for while - people finally realising it.
Bar martial and maybe James.
If we could have scored a few more last season our OK defence wouldn’t have been slaughtered as much. Problem was if we conceded we could not come back.
Martial is 100% our best CF, loving James also, need to buy another CF though but it will prob be the summer.
@Tom77 I wasnt around for any of that but the difference there is there was a fundamental change that could be pointed to. Here there isn't. It's just a shift in behaviour. Both pog and neymar, who has absolutely creamed divs lately, are both cheaper than they were pre-ss which of itself brought about a minor div increase making them both, in theory, more valuable.
I get it with pog at the minute, although I thought the tide might have turned by now, but I would not be worried if there had been a big change brought in but there hasnt
Pogba and neymar were pumped up mate anybody could see it, in the pogba/neymar threads lots were saying it, pre share split over £20 bloody mental!.
- those rises were never sustainable.
The bottom end has been catching them up all summer. (Ipd value was essentially tripled) - pog and neymar holders just ignored it. I sold all my top boys and went in on cheap players. As it happens I’m looking at bigger players now, I bought in Hazard last week as I think FI will do something eventually and am getting before that cycle starts.
It will get to a point where the top boys will look value again, its a cycle.
Nobody is going to pay £2.50 for an ipd player. All of a sudden £4 pb look value again especially with a div increase.
As for pog and neymar you are looking at neymar smashing pb all the time and pog smashing Mb all the time to sustain over £6.
- those rises were never sustainable.
@MickTurbo Don't get me wrong, I think its a great product but its not working for me currently so I am reducing the risk till I understand what is going on.
It makes me laugh to read people who have been on here six months or so stating that they have seen it all before. I would really like someone that has been around for a lot longer to show me some data that proves me wrong but I do not believe that in my time there has been such a sustained period of this current situation.
Apologies for being negative, I just wanted to point out that there may be many like me that are reducing their holds in the traditional top players because we have in fact seen nothing like this before and the loss due to the spread is still a relative pittance to anyone that has held Pogba/Rashford/Salah shares for 18 months plus.
My expectation now is that the big boys continue to drop and assuming FI is still growing then there will be a great opportunity to buy back in. Just don't ask me when!
There was a melt down when PB was introduced as the squad was opened up and people thought the top 200 would crash.
There was a meltdown when ipd’s were introduced last October.
There have been many flat periods aswell.
The top end does need a div increase, i cant believe FI want a product where only cheap players make money, they need to promote the hazards.kane’s pogba’s ......
It’s a great product and people like gambling on football.
