    I'm happy with who I bought, but I am sad about who I sold. I suspect I might have done better this week with the players I sold than those I bought, but I could not delay for price reasons so I will just have to take it on the chin. I've had enough practice of that this season :D

    How do the value changes work? Cos Arnautovic is the 9th highest scoring striker, scored 3 in 5 games and just went down 100k?

    so what? It's like betting? Doesn't go off performances?

    So just more people have sold him than bought him?

    Game changer.

    Seems that way! I honestly thought prices were deemed by points scored.

    Yeah, performance in the prior season probably has quite a large impact on what price the FPL game sets for a player before the season starts (which is why Salah was £13 million to start with this season) but after that its all down to people buying or selling players in sufficient quantities to trigger rises or falls in price.

    No, it's more like buying and selling shares, than betting
    Yep, this is right.

    The formula is not disclosed but it works something like this:

    There's a hidden threshold percentage that determines when the change is triggered. Let's say is 5%

    If player is owned by 100 people and 25 buy him and 4 sell him, then his net transfer is +21 and 21 is 21% of 100 so the threshold has been reached and he goes up 0.1

    As soon as the rise happens, the numbers are recalculated, so now he's 121 and 5% of that is 6.05 - that's the new net transfer rate that's needed to trigger a rise. Or fall, if it's -6.05

    So higher owned players need more transfers to trigger rises/falls than lower owner players.

    Buying stocks and shares is betting Fez. :)

    "There's been a goal for Spurs"
    "Who? WHO??"
    "Lucas in lots of space on the right..."
    "Bugger, so that's only an assist"
    "His ball found Trippier"
    "YES! Lucas assist for Trippier goal, I'll take that!"
    "Who played it to Kane for a simple header into the net"
    "BASTARDS!! :mad: :mad: "

    And then they go to a goal for Man City, where Aguero was apparently crucial but didn't actually get the goal or the assist.

    I don't need influential, I need points! :mad: :(

    And now Kane has scored a penalty! Those differential captains are going to screw me this weekend, aren't they?

    I was close to wildcarding to get him in and cpt - the mendy affair just dragged on too long so i delphed who didn't even play. Kane is a must for next few weeks.

    Forgot to switch out Alonso for AWB or Tarkowski, so I'm hoping he and Robertson both concede goals to each other, but only each other :hmm:

    I really need AWB to get zilch on Monday; everyone around me has him, I've benched him.

    Haha I'm plummeting, I'm out of the top 50 in the U75 league for now at least. Perhaps I can recover a bit with my 4 players who dont play till Monday, but I doubt it. Never mind, I can keep my spirits up with a cunning plan regarding transfers for next week. Another 8 points will be spent lol.

    Trippier was an excellent transfer decision for me this week, for Ryan Bertrand who got zero :cool:
