Hey Matt and all!

Just wanted to make a suggestion. What if we made it:

2 points for playing part of the match.

1 point for coming as a sub.

I think this would give more of a fair balance to players who get picked to start.

Let me know what you think!

And also maybe taking off points for own goals? If a yellow card is negative, an own goal probably warrants something like that too no?

Anyway, hope to hear back
Coyb18 (Chelsea) 3 years ago
Will take this as a "no"! Lol

Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
The answer is in the FAQ which is linked in the big pink box here!

However I am feeling nice so:

Window 3: 6/4/2013 - 13/4/2013

Dear Admins,

I too have Mata as my star midfielder player and he is not getting any clean sheet points. I even used up my emergency transfer window to put him as the star player so I am very disappointed that I cannot compete with the other players for the top positions with this unwarranted handicap - every point counts so it's frustrating and spoils the fun in an otherwise fantastic football fantasy system.

I look forward to a favourable solution and thank you in advance for reviewing the case
Tanmay (Footytube Moderator) 3 years ago
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Mata listed as an attacker in the DF listings? No clean sheet points for attackers, only mids and defenders.

Edit: ah I see your problem - Mata's status has been changed from mid to attacker. That's being discussed below; I'm sure someone better informed than me will answer that question shortly
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Mata's position was changed in the transfer window.

I do see your problem so the easiest solution will be to put him back to Midfield and give everyone the points. This way the worst that can happen is someone gains.

Expect to see this on your points total in the next few days.

Hello, I bought juan mata in September or October. It was midfielder I paid 13 million. During this transfer window he became attacker (for 19 million). I do not get why more cleen shet for him (against bucharest and brendford).
This is not normal because mata is still midfielder in my team since begining. I feel that I should always have mata as a midfielder. Can not change the status of former player. In this case why the prices do not vary them?

When many people have chosen the coach "carrera" of juventus 3 million, they did not pay the difference? It was a good investment for them because if we wanted carrera later, we had to pay more.

This is the same for mata, the advantage of choosing him from the beginning of the dice game as midfielder should remain an advantage?

Thank you for answer
ElGaucho (AC Milan) 3 years ago
Dear All,

I have the same issue.... Can this post be answered please? We bought Mata when he was a midfielder and thus expect him to get points for the clean sheets.

Thanks for looking into this

I'm having the same problem! I'm being heavily effected because its really close in the top 15

Hi Matt. I remember you saying that keeping Careera for Juve was OK. So why am I not receiving points for his matches anymore?  Cheers
Ordaye (Liverpool) 3 years ago
I asked Matt this question during the transfer and he replied "Managers no longer in the game will need to be replaced so you can earn points from the manager position". That is why you are not receiving points for Carrera.
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
I had the same question from another user, I told him I will ask matt tomorrow as he is seldom online at the weekends, and his wife is overdue their baby, so panic ye not.... Lol, leave all the panic to matt
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago

OK sorry if I gave you that impression but the rules are:

If a manager leaves the team for whatever reason you will keep earning points for the team actions upto and until the next transfer window after the window the manager is removed from the game and will no longer earn you points.

I hope this clears it up
Malik (Barcelona) 3 years ago
@ Matt, Carrera wasn’t sacked exactly, it was just a replacement, so IMO carrera should have been replaced with cnote in our DF, don’t you feel same?
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Sacked, left, retired or abducted by aliens all adds up to the same thing a new name above the door and on the DF list!
Malik (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Thanks for the reply, but still I feel he should be replaced with cnote, or at least provide us option to change him before his point loss become material figure
St1or (Barcelona) 3 years ago
I agree.... People took a gamble on certain players and after it paid off, everyone else is trying to join the bandwagon.... Which they have. I've seen so many people with Bayern + Chelsea + Juve players now and the mata + carrera dilema especially are hurting my points!
Tanmay (Footytube Moderator) 3 years ago
Just speaking as a df player here - you guys have all had a massive boost getting Carrera for 3m. Would be lovely if the windfall could continue but if anything you have the unfair advantage!
Malik (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Not same with every one, I paid 10 M for him, which is average price of good manager
Pioneercolonel (Manchester United) 3 years ago
Matt mate that isn't fair. I could have changed him for another manager during the transfer window. I was misinformed. Anyway you can make a reconsideration? I'm sure I'm not the only one

I've got a problem. My plan was to sell Mignolet and replace him by Lloris. I couldn't buy Lloris because a message told me that I had already been doing three transfers. So confused, I wanted to get Mignolet back. But his value was risen and I don't have money left. Do I have to play without a goal keeper or is there another way to fix it?
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Sounds like you went over your limit of transfers. You are only allowed to buy 3 players in this window. I assume you have saved your team? If you haven't saved your team yet you can still click the undo changes and fix it.... Or the next time you open your browser it should already be reset
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
If you have no goalkeeper then you would not be able to save your team so it will reset

In August I bought Demba Ba as a Newcastle player. Do I have to sell him and buy him as a Chelsea player in this transfer window?
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Nope, he will earn points as a chelsea player and will not count towards your 2 player allocation for Chelsea
Coyb18 (Chelsea) 3 years ago
That's a sweet deal!

Hi Staffs,
Do I need to sell Carerra to earn managerial points of Juventus? Will I get the points of my new players made this week next week? .
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Managers no longer in the game will need to be replaced so you can earn points from the manager position
Canook (Arsenal) 3 years ago
Question: I bought Michu for 3. 5m at the start of the season, if I sell him during the current window do I get his current Valuation price? Or the price I paid for him?

Can't seem to find the answer anywhere, thanks!

Also, just a suggestion; When you click to sell a player a confirmation note comes up saying "Do you really wish to sell (PlayerX)", might be helpful so that the message comes up as "Do you wish to sell (PlayerX) for (X amount of $$$$)
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
You will only get what you paid sadly, its a cruel world.... Lol
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Like Tony said and I like the price alert suggestion I will see about adding this in
Canook (Arsenal) 3 years ago
Awesome, thanks for the help and quick response guys!

Hi, I have a question about how points are scored for managers when the game goes to extra time. Inter-Bologna ended 3-2 after extra time. Dreamfooty records the match as a 2-2. So Stramaccioni got 1 point for drawn game and didn't get 3 for "team scoring more than 2 goals in a game"
I remember there was a similar story in the Euro Dreamfooty.
Is this a rule and does it apply to managers only or to players as well? Thanks
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Result/score points are based on a 90 min match only. Extra time will only provide points for individual actions like scoring a goal (except in a penalty shoot out) and assists

Il manque des points pour pirlo parme 1-1 juventus: but de pirlo 5points?
Stelleteam (AC Milan) 4 years ago
Its lacks an assist from van persie to evra's goal!
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Was an OG
Stelleteam (AC Milan) 4 years ago
I was wrong, it is the goal of vidic, the assist is the van persie (a free kick)

How come my list of players to buy/sub is restricted? I've been looking at some of the other teams on dreamfooty and they have players from all clubs mine seemed to be limited to uk clubs only.... Have I missed something? Actually come to think about it when I first signed up I had the likes of messi available, choose my team saved it then signed up to pro and had to make a new team which was limited in players.... Perplexed to whats wrong here
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Couldn't really tell you what happened. Are you saying that the league buttons don't work when you are trying to buy players?
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Also perplexed there is no way to limit the players you can buy from.

The only thing I can suggest is to double check you are clicking the league icons to view the players from that league?
13A1N (Tottenham Hotspur) 4 years ago
Ha it don't matter my chosen team seems to be working out fine anyway.... Been playing since the 3rd jan and on 190pts so not bad, is there anyway of telling who has made the most points in the shortest time? There should be an award for the newest newcomer who makes the most points till the season ends or till each transfer window maybe...
Leifg (Arsenal) 4 years ago
Possible idea for next year's Dreamfooty - being able to compare where you were the year before to this year, point in time. I should have written down some point in time numbers last year but didn't. It would be cool if there was a way to see that kind of comparison so that even if I am living in the dregs of the bottom of the league, I may still be doing better than I did the year before! It's all about personal bests
Jaeseungeee (Liverpool) 4 years ago
Hi. I recently bought Martín Demichelis and Stephan El Shaarawy and updated my top 11 at the same time.
I got my points for Demichelis, but never got my points for Stephan El Shaarawy for round 15.
Can somebody please tell me why this happened?
