    I still make that 18 points:

    4 x.4 points for his goals = 16
    2 appearance points for 60+ minutes = 18
    -3 for a red = 15
    +3 bonus (probably?) = 18

    Incidentally, Costa never received a red in the Prem.

    That list is anyone who was booked for diving. The 'clever' ones won't appear on it.

    I don't think Vardy dives...?

    My memory disagrees most strongly. I will investigate.

    Well as I was saying, there are a bunch of things that I dont think I yet get about football, some of which will cause me to use terminology wrong I suspect. I'm including players that go down in the area, but thats including any times where they go down because they've been fouled, not just dives.

    Anyway thanks for clarifying what the list is made of. Spurs havent been lucky with such decisions! From what I've seen of pre-VAR ref decisions about such matters on televised games of recent years, some people get penalised for diving when they actually werent at all!

    Bah sometimes I really hate the extent to which google is fixated with the most recent events when searching.

    I suppose there are several things that could be triggering my Costa memories. I think he was sent off in an FA cup game once that then lead to him being suspended for some league games, which would have pissed me off if I had him at the time. But I still feel like there was something else too, possibly bans for number of yellows accrued within a certain period.

    All the same, I suppose its not a revelation to me that my mind will sometimes play tricks on me!
  5. Has Mason Mount been added to the Ffl yet? Four goals in preseason and a player that Lampard obviously thinks reminds him of a young Lampard.

    Ooh. He has. 6m....

    I think my Fantasy Football pre-season is too intense. Spent quite a bit of Sunday afternoon working out how many playing minutes it took players per point, then dividing that into their value to see the results. Does that sound like it has value as a selection method? :D

    It sounds similar to one or two of the stats that certain websites like to churn out. Certainly valid as part of a balanced diet of stats!

    You could take it one level further by looking at the actual value of the player above the base cost of a player in that position.

    For example, the cheapest defender is £4m meaning for your defense, you have to spend £20m minimum. The cheapest forward is £4.5m, etc.

    This makes someone like Robertson's cost effectively +£3m over the baseline. Whereas Aubameyang is +£6.5m over baseline for a forward.

    Changes the 'value' of players a fair bit if you look at this, IMO. Might mean you choose a different distribution of funds between def/mid/attack.

    Yeah, it's interesting that the "best" players using my method are the ones you'd expect; the ones most likely to get you points, even when value is factored in, are players like Kane, Salah, Sterling, TAA. That's why you pay the big bucks. But it HAS been interesting and useful in at least providing food for thought when choosing between the rest; Firmino or Vardy, Wilson or King, etc.

    On top of that we have VAR which might influence whether a player is a taker of penalties.

  11. If you want interesting, which we all do.....

    I'll offer up £50 as a prize to the league winner. That should focus some minds.

    Fuck it, I'll do the H2H if there's a space.

    Can't believe the number of league entries. Surely not all Urbanites.

    I have been doing a prize money fantasy league - bloke at work organises it - it's in the scum dream team alas - £20 in - 1-3 get money - last season , the winner got £240 I think.

    Yeah, I've never really understood prizes. Being better than everyone else should be prize enough. It's the only thing that really matters, after all.

    What do youse think of the young Mason Greenwood fella for Man U? he's in great pre-season form and I've read Ole may start with him, and he's cheap as chips. I have him in as 3rd choice striker and it frees up nice funds for elsewhere.

    I'm not in the U75 league so don't mind talking about my squad :)

    If Lukaku goes they'll buy another foward possibly Dybala. if Lukaku stays they will have to play him. Rashford and Martial will also be above Greenwood in the pecking order. Sure he'll get some minutes during the season but I am not convinced that he will even be 3rd choice at Man Utd.

    He looks a great prospect - genuinely both-footed, good shot, speedy, very skillful. But IMO just a "watch this space" this season. Few eye-catching cup outings.
  22. SpackleFrog

    I think he could get some minutes but he's owned by too many players to go up in value very much.

    I have him at the moment but considering Nketiah who is older, just as likely to get minutes and not as well owned, or Andone who may well be 1st choice for Brighton since Murray is now 36.
  23. SpackleFrog

    They'll play him on the wing if they play him.

    Curious to see the price of Arsenal's new signing Pepe, if indeed they've actually signed him yet, and whether he's counted as a mid or striker. He scored a load of goals as a winger last season, plays like Kanu with pace.

    I reckon they'll have him as a midfielder - could be a lowish price too. Worth a punt.

    S☼I campestral seneschal

    Possibly mid, yeah. Unsure about the price; his real life fee is pretty hefty, 72m or something
  27. SpackleFrog

    SpackleFrog Smash showy bell-bottom pants and sporty haircuts

    Yeah, I mean he could be £8m or £8.5m which would be low compared to Sane, Son, De Bruyne etc
  28. S☼I

    S☼I campestral seneschal

    At that he'd be hard to resist tbh.

    Sorry I'm catching up with this thread. But no. Vardy is a diving little prick.
