How many people are playing Dreamfooty this season? I'd love to know the overall number
CoontaKunte (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Me too, I would love to have that information too
Leifg (Arsenal) 2 years ago
For some reason, Nasri's points aren't showing up for the Arsenal game. Can that be fixed?
Coyb18 (Chelsea) 2 years ago
Hey Matt,

Could you add John Anthony Brooks(Hertha Berlin) to Dreamfooty? USA international if anyone's wondering! ^_^ many thanks!

Leifg (Arsenal) 3 years ago
I have to post this in both forums. I still can't see most of my Bundesliga player performance data which makes it really difficult to make informed decisions. When is that going to be fixed?
Coyb18 (Chelsea) 2 years ago
Concurred, would really be a big boost to get sorted out. Thanks
Jeroen (Barcelona) 2 years ago
².    This bug has been there forever, and Matt was gonna' look into it, but I guess he forgot.
Leifg (Arsenal) 2 years ago
Matt! Help a brother out! When are you going to fix this?

Does anyone know when the next transfer window is open? If yes, please let me know
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Window 3: 1/2/14 - 8/2/14    All are listed in the FAQ
Seanf24 (Real Madrid) 3 years ago
Don't you think 4 months is way too long to wait for the next transfer window? Would it not be better to have the next one in January and the one after in March? As the season from all leagues end in the middle or end of May, a month before the season ends won't really help.... Anyways.... Thanks for the info and hope you give it a thought to the suggestion
ZIZOO (Real Madrid) 3 years ago
I agree there should be a transfer window with the real transfer window to accommodate for players moving
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
I also agree, it seems weird the first TW was just weeks after DF started, the second a month after that and then the third is 4 months later? Odd
Seanf24 (Real Madrid) 3 years ago
Yeah, very odd. Especially for someone in a situation similar to of mine, who already used their 2 transfer emergency to replace their past injured players, and now has injury issues again. I have s. Sam out till mid dec and boensich out for an unknown amount of time....
Btw.... Congrats guys for doing so well in df! You guys sure are consistent, picked off from where you left last season, eh? Hehe
Jeroen (Barcelona) 2 years ago
Thanks. And yes, I'm in the same boat: I had to use my PRO+ window for Messi twice now, replaced Sam along with Messi in my last TW. Now Ronaldo (star striker), Lahm (star DF), Boenisch and Sagna are ALL injured. That's 60m worth of players. No wonder I lost my n°1 spot. Even if only Lahm wasn't injured, I'd be leading by about 100 points now....
Seanf24 (Real Madrid) 2 years ago
Ouch, thought I was having it hard guess you have it worse. Anyways.... This just proves my point that we need the transfer window way earlier, sometime in december or january. I'm sure we're not the only one's with injury problems. I have 2 players injured and 2 other under-performing yet I have been sitting in the 30th+ position for a while now, this must mean many have injury crisis due to having almost the same players...
Jeroen (Barcelona) 2 years ago
I doubt Matt'll see this though. But yes, the transfer windows should be more regular; like every two and a half months instead of one period of 4 months when the season is going at full tilt, then another after only a few weeks

Wenrooney (Manchester United) 3 years ago
Hi matt, I didn't get points for rooney's assist vs stoke.... The goal came off a rebound from rooney's header. Vanpersie tapped it in. So could you please have a look into it?

Dear Admins,

I made my transfer changes and saved on Monday 14th but it seems these changes were not updated in the starting team on Tuesday morning. I have some players playing next Friday so they would miss out on points. Can this be fixed please?

Thanks in advance for assisting.

PS - seems I am still with my initial team in starting 11 even though I used an emergency transfer window a month ago. Please see entry under Bugs
ElGaucho (AC Milan) 3 years ago
Hi Matt, a question for you please because I'm not willing to test this out on my team

The rules say that we can "buy a maximum of 4 players" during the normal transfer windows. But when is this taken into account? Can I change 4 of my players a number of times during the active transfer window [saving the team every time] as long as my team doesn't differ by more than 4 players from my pre-transfer window team? Or is it that once I used my 4 transfer and clicked on "Save Team" then there's no going back?
Elbert (Manchester United) 3 years ago
I'm trying to do this "4 transfers" things but it will not let me make anymore transfers.... Please help anyone?
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Sorry there was a delay in getting the Transfer Window open as prices needed to be adjusted. The window is open now and will remain open until the 21st (Monday)
Messionage (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Thanks! Also does that mean that this coming weekend's games will not count?
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Well this is great, but most players that should've changed are still priced quite poorly
Theo (Chelsea) 3 years ago
It's only 8 or so games into the season though and performances so far should not warrant any excessive bumping up. Half the players on that list most likely won't be doing so great come January, and if they are, then it can be changed in the next window imo
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
They all play for teams that are top 4 in their league...
Theo (Chelsea) 3 years ago
Roma were not a top 4 team last season, they didn't even make Europa. But this season they have started great - mostly due to easy fixtures - and you want all their players to cost more. Only problem with that is they will most likely, eventually calm down, and then the prices will seem ridiculous.

Players who are in good form should get 1-5m bump to reflect that, but nothing excessive as it will only be for a matter of time. Anyway Neto should definitely not be 5m though, that was a mistake given he didn't play last season, but with the departure of Viviano he's now the main man. Same applies to Boesnich
Messionage (Barcelona) 3 years ago
I don't think it would make sense to change the prices now considering the window is already open and people have probably already started making changes!
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
My suggestion is to roll teams back to yesterday and get on with it from thereon
Theo (Chelsea) 3 years ago
There's a GK for 1m and he plays for a champions league team lol
Messionage (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Loool 1m? If this is true, its ridiculous lol. Mind mentioning the name? So we don't pick him by mistake lol
Theo (Chelsea) 3 years ago
It has been fixed, some lucky people would have spotted and gotten him though, and saved 10m lol
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
I've told Matt about this €1m player, I sold my 'copy' of him since that only seemed fair.

Hopefully Matt will take the time to sort the rest out. He's back to €11m now though
ElGaucho (AC Milan) 3 years ago
Hi Jeroen.... It would be interesting to hear your experience in more detail. I'm pretty sure that I noticed you added 3 different Hoffenheim players to your squad at different times during this transfer window but now you have none (6 transfers?)
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
How can you even buy 3 players of one team? You can only have two. And I did have a Hoffenheim player in the past, Firmino, but I sold him. I make changes all the time, trying out new set-ups and buying players I think are bargains before selling them again for others. As long as they aren't saved into footytube's database on Tuesday or Saturday those transfers don't matter and don't count as a transfer
ElGaucho (AC Milan) 3 years ago
They were never in the same team at the same time

I got your point.... You can change the same 4 players as many times as you like before the end of the transfer window, as long as your team doesn't differ by more than 4 players from your pre-transfer window team. Did I understand correctly?

I got curious when people mentioned this €1m player

Good luck mate.... You're doing a great job
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Oh, now I understand. Yeah, I tried a bunch of teams yesterday night, and you must've caught me then. I bought Firmino again, but also Schipplock and some other Hoffenheim dude. Not to mention dozens of other players from other teams. And yes, you are correct about that rule that allows you to swap the 4 players you bought. About that €1m player: it was a bug and I think it was unfair to exploit it unless everyone had him. I had that player too, but reported it to Matt and sold the player.

Thanks for the well-wishes
Malik (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Bravo (Real Sociedad) was that kepper which was wrongly priced at 1 M, I bought him for 9. 5 M during first transfer window & now his price is increased to 11 M. My plan was to sell him during 2nd transfer window & when ever I sell my players I check their current prices, I was few of that " lucky " guys which found that 1 M bravo & simply sold my 9. 5 M bravo and purchased that 1 M one, TBH I was happy yet I knew for certain that it has to be a mistake / bug as min price of any player in DF is 3 M.

I have sold my copy of that bravo as keeping him would have been unfair with other players & I request Matt / Mod's to ask all user that manage to bought him for 1 m to sell him immediately.

As for price changes I agree with Chelseman93 that its still quite early to increase prices drastically, for instance M. Russ from Frankfurt was 3. 5 prior to transfer window & now his price is increased to 8 M, I know that he have earned over 100 points so far but its risky to bet that Russ will keep up same form (or keep on scoring) or Frankfurt will keep on surprising thougout the reat of season, IMO at this point changing prices will really effect the element of contest in game & I would rather prefer to keep other players teams & top 20 player option hidden then increasing prices.

Even for future I think if user don't have excess to to 20 players list & other players team until certain time (let's say till jan) contest will be more interesting, requirment to change prices will be reduced and user will really have to put in effort to perform well.
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
The reasoning behind the price changes is as a few have stated here, it is only a few weeks into the season so the best indication we have of price is still last seasons data + some tweaks for performance this season. Take Ramsey for instance should we rocket his price up to Messi levels or should we just assume this purple patch of form will probably dip soon (especially with returning players).

I understand people at the top of the leaderboard wish to remain there and keep the bargains/risks but that just is not interesting. I am sure a lot of people will appreciate Jereon's handy list.

As for the incorrectly priced goalie I will verify who managed to purchase at this price and give them an extra transfer to get rid of him or they will be excluded from any prizes this season, I appreciate everyone's honesty here
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Understood, can't complain either. We'll see where this will take us, but I'm afraid it'll end up in a contest where once again 8/11 players are players everyone has. To be honest that suits me just fine since I'm leading. Now the rest have less chance of catching up since they'll get the same players I have. It's just that it gets a bit dull this way
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Yeah, I know even a 100-pt lead is not a lot, but it is once everyone gets the same players. The top 10 all have at least 6 of the same players in their squad as I have, so meanwhile only a few of those players will make a difference compared to my team. Eh, good news I guess
Rockerr (Liverpool) 3 years ago
Transfer window's opening today right?  
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
I hope some price changes are made first or everyone will have the same cheap players...
Juraman (Sochaux) 3 years ago
Any news from the transfert windows?
Ordaye (Liverpool) 3 years ago
It is October 12 and transfer has to be open period. It is staffs job to change the price before the opening on time. Jeroen thanks for explaining why the transfer isn't open yet. But, then you excuse them and it is obvious why
Zekko4 (AC Milan) 3 years ago
The staff can a least say when the window will open for real
Juvenik21 (Juventus) 3 years ago
What time will it open gahh I need to change some players lol
Franboy (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Transfers are still not open? This is very strange?
Jofa39 (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Anyone from Staff can give an explanation? Please
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Are prices not gonna' change? Some players are hugely undervalued and since in previous years they always changed, I expected the same now...
Franboy (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Jeroen is right. If there is no change, we all have the same players in a short time.

It would be really interesting that some players increase (players who are in a lot of teams). But also other players decreases (eg injured player, players who are not in any teams....)

This would be more possible combinations in the future. And so the teams would be more open.

If prices do not increase and decreases, changes, combinations to form his team are impossible and therefore everyone buys the same players
Dawich (Chelsea) 3 years ago
Hey, I mistakenly used my first emergency transfer window to star a player right before the dreamfooty season started, because I forgot to star a foward. I was a noob and did not know I did not have to do that lol. I have used my second emergency transfer window. Now that Messi is injured, I really need that emergency transfer window. If there is a user history of any sort, it could be confirmed that I'm telling the truth. Can I possibly get that emergency window back?
Ofcourse, I wouldn't be mad if I can't, since this error was purely mine. But, I recon it doesn't hurt to try, since I have a sensible case
