Dreamfooty Rants
Tecko (Arsenal) 2 years ago
Seems like many of you guys need a place to vent your frustrations and complain about the injustice your team has suffered

Thus I decided to make this thread. Just come in and pour your grievances about Dreamfooty, whether is it regarding injuries to your key players or underperforming stars in your team

I hope messi contracts mono and can't play for a year. Because it seems a lot of people did the ronaldo/messi double and I didn't so I need a leg up on them =P
Hithere (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Always go for Messi. He was the first one on my team. Interesting choice though with Falcao+Ronaldo+Berbatov. I'm not so sure about Berba
Sumdumfu (Los Angeles Galaxy) 2 years ago
When berbatov plays he's an elite scorer. He proved that the season he won the EPL golden boot playing mainly as a sub. I never understood why fergie was so down on such a gifted player. Plus for 7M I think the risk is pretty minimal
Lioto (Tottenham Hotspur) 2 years ago
I agree, berb's a good buy, missed him myself, although I'm not sure he'll get the service he needs now that dembele and dempsey have gone
Badge (Manchester United) 2 years ago
I would've found a way to find 1m extra and pay for Villa instead of Berba tbh. But if the latter adapts quickly to his new club, he could be a great buy for 7m. We all know what he's capable of
Jeroen (Barcelona) 2 years ago
This thread needs more angry Wenger:

So I thought buying Sakai form Stuttgart was a good idea. Next day, they get thrashed 6-1.



But I am very happy with the team I have anyway, so I'll just rock on with Arsène:

Hikmat (Real Madrid) 2 years ago
Can't find my pocket!!




Yes Finally!

Buying Sakai from Stuttgart and see them get demolished in their first game of the season.... Lol, I know that feel, bro
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
I got Sakai too.... But I didn't start him. Crisis averted. Luckily I didn't get fooled by Brkic and his 5 million price tag either
ManOnDMoon (Manchester City) 2 years ago
Well, I thought Brkić (Udinese) was going to be a decent choice and a steal for a 5m goalkeeper and what, he gets a red card, on top of that it's controversial, on top of that Udinese score a useless goal that wipes my chances of double clean sheet with Juve defenders.
Like someone said about Szczęsny in the Euros: "Don't buy a goalkeeper whose name you can't pronounce"
Hithere (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Brkic owner here as well. I have him and the Stuttgart manager. So I got -14 from both of them on my first DF day.... Yup
Cebolla (FC Porto) 2 years ago
One of my strikers Ibisevic (7. 5m) got sent off too lol, now I have no subs to replace him. Terrible start!
Sumdumfu (Los Angeles Galaxy) 2 years ago
Hithere I would've gone with lazio's manager if I were looking for a deal there. He was only 3M and playing europa. But yeah, another brkic owner crying in my beer here =(
Lioto (Tottenham Hotspur) 2 years ago
I got lazio's manager simply as he was the cheapest. Considering he's managing quite a big team he seems ridiculously cheap
Reidscott (Fiorentina) 2 years ago
I picked Messi and Mueller.... And made Messi my Star.... Got 23 pts so far.... However Mueller has 21.... Good move I think...
Badge (Manchester United) 2 years ago
If you have a player who's gonna' score 80 goals and get 30 assists in a season, you sure as hell should make him your star striker
Nice attacking duo btw
Reidscott (Fiorentina) 2 years ago
Only prob is the leader boards show a lot more pts then my team.... Messi has 43 but I have 22? In fact a bunch of points are all off...
Jeroen (Barcelona) 2 years ago
That's because the points from August are in ther as well Reid. So not to worry, the points you've been given are correct
Lioto (Tottenham Hotspur) 2 years ago
Did anyone else pick Parma's Rosi in defence? Cost £4m, I was gonna' rage that he wasn't playing but then he came on with 10 minutes to go and scored. Parma kept a clean sheet in that match. 18 points for a £4m defender who played 10 minutes! Woooooo.
Also falcao not playing is ridiculously annoying, especially in the form he's in
Rubin (Inter Milan) 2 years ago
Don't expect Rosi to do that in every game.
Sumdumfu (Los Angeles Galaxy) 2 years ago
Atletico and chelsea played in the uefa super cup last weekend. I'm sure most of us that bought him knew that and were willing to accept the one game missed
Lioto (Tottenham Hotspur) 2 years ago
I just bought him a while ago and wasn't checking the la liga fixtures very carefully. Anyway wasn't the super cup on a friday? They could have played on a sunday too if they really wanted to.
@Rubin tbh I wasn't expecting him to play much, I normally sacrifice my defenders so that I have a strong attack
Lioto (Tottenham Hotspur) 1 year ago
Ahh Rosi just got himself sent off....
I knew it wouldn't last. I didn't really think about a sub defender either as I was so tempted by attacking players.
Jeroen (Barcelona) 1 year ago
Yeah, tough luck there. In that same game (I have Fiore's keeper Viviano) it looked like a guarantee Fiore would get all 3 points and a clean sheet, but f*****g Luca Toni, the giant who is only good at being big, had to ruin it by giving away a penalty
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 1 year ago
Haha, jeroen something bad happens evrytime I watch a match for DF lol. Instead of letting me enjoy the matches more (which it should) it gives me heart attacks
Badge (Manchester United) 2 years ago
I can't stand that some people who made their DreamFooty team early on got deals like Carrera for 3m or Vidic for 7. 5m (I think). It makes me feel so angry lol. If I got Carrera for 3m, my team would've been so, so much stronger. I never played DF before, except for Euro's this year. I didn't know that at first, some players/managers are vastly underpriced, and I made my team relatively late. As a result, I missed out on some of those deals/glitches made by FT. If I knew, I would've logged on immediately after it opened and would've gotten those cheap deals. Arrrrgh, lol. The whole thing's pretty unfair to me.

Rant over
ManUK (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Lol a few years back when this game started I went on the first day when there were tons of bugs. So I got Rio Ferdinand for 1m, before they corrected the glitch. I happily watched as he went on to be my highest earning defender
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
I am angry that Falcao had to go and score 2 hattricks before DF started. I would prefer it if he picked up his form in September after the window closed. Falcao was one of my first players picked.... You don't normally see a 20+ goal scorer in the past season going for less than 16. 5 million.

Now after he scored the two hattricks I bet the number of people who picked him skyrocketed.
Hikmat (Real Madrid) 2 years ago
I got Falcao for a cheap 14 million, and after scoring two hat-tricks his price went up but many people on footytube still bought him
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
I think lots of people still got him when he was 14 million
Sumdumfu (Los Angeles Galaxy) 2 years ago
Yeah I saw 24 goals last season, for 14M, I thought autobuy. Everybody else that +20 goals is around 20M or more. Except one guy but I'm keepin him in my back pocket for later
Cebolla (FC Porto) 2 years ago
Let me guess.... Dost? Was he playing in one any of the 4 leagues last season?
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
I had Dost.... But sold him after seeing a highlight reel. All penalties or tap ins.... I am not even exagerating
Hithere (Manchester United) 2 years ago
I have Dost but I don't really expect him to score 20+ goals this season. But he will score goals and he's a starter so 3m is barely a risk for me
Rubin (Inter Milan) 2 years ago
Dost scored only 4 goals from the spot out of 32 goals in the dutch league last season
Hithere (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Either way, it doesn't matter whether it's spot kicks or taps ins or ugly deflections. A goal = 5 points. Good enough for me.
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
Well I didn't get him because I don't think he will get the same freedom to operate that he got in the Eredivisie
Sumdumfu (Los Angeles Galaxy) 2 years ago
Nope not dost. There's someone else out there who score 20+ goals last year (and many times in his career) who's even cheaper than falcao ;-O
Rubin (Inter Milan) 2 years ago
Milito or Di Natale.    Edit: I'm leaning more towards Milito because I think Di Natale was 14m.
Mumbai (Chelsea) 2 years ago
Milito -- I have him on my team
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 2 years ago
I bought Milito for £13m. I am confident he'll have a great season with loads of goals. My main disappointment so far is Naldo's' terrible performance against Hannover, which could force Magath to rely on Kjaer maybe next week, who knows...
Sumdumfu (Los Angeles Galaxy) 2 years ago
Oh yeah. Berbatov. *pats back*
Hithere (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Congrats. Meanwhile, I had a terrible Dreamfooty day. Good thing Messi did his job or else it would have been even worse
Sumdumfu (Los Angeles Galaxy) 2 years ago
Other than berba I had an underwhelming day as well. Barca coughs up the clean sheet AND pique gets a yellow, as does di maria thus erasing his pts for the day, and of course ronaldo got nothing. Ah well, at least I still have dempsey and falcao tomorrow
MightyFibs (Panathinaikos Athens) 1 year ago
Iniesta, Xavi and fabregas are bad choices in my opinion as they don't get on the scoresheet or assist as often as you'd expect. The pluses are probably the more or less guaranteed clean sheet points and the appearance ponts but still not good enough for their worth
Jeroen (Barcelona) 2 years ago
Terrible, schmerrible I say. All depends on the relativity of the bad performances of your players. Di Maria, Ronaldo, Iniesta, Götze, Hazard, .... None of them performed this week, none of my defenders got a clean sheet, but thanks to Viviano (Fiore's GK), Messi and the Juve coach (2 goals from 2 subs) I'll be fine and even rise a lot in the rankings again.

As long as you get more points from players few others have, you're doing fine
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
Same boat but I have Jovetic which scored, assisted, won and was yellow carded.... Pretty happy with his performance.

Luckily everyone has the same set of midfielders so I don't think anyone jumped ahead by much from there. Not many teams got clean sheets either
Hithere (Manchester United) 2 years ago
No cleansheet for me. Silvestre didn't play for Inter. *facepalm*
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
At least you don't have a hand tattoo'd on your face like those who got De Gea and Brkic as keepers
Hithere (Manchester United) 2 years ago
I got Brkic as well. *double facepalm* Well, at least he's much cheaper than De Gea and hopefully he starts next game...
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
He does have an EL match which he will probably play and his suspension is over now
Sumdumfu (Los Angeles Galaxy) 2 years ago
Top 200 and climbing right now. Can't complain given I had brkic, dempsey, hazard, hoogland of stuttgart, falcao, and berbatov who all didn't play (or play much) week 1. May have to jettison dempsey though, much as I love him. Doesn't look like he'll get the playing time at spurs that he did at fulham. Also messi needs to get a red card and miss a few please soccer gods
Jeroen (Barcelona) 2 years ago
Am I glad I followed your initial advise and went for Viviano TBS Go Fiore! Even with no European games, their team has much improved, and because of their increased offensive prowess, they'll concede less goals too as they'll dominate more games.

Oh and by the way: Carrera just got 25 points by subbing on Mirko Vucinic and Asamoah who scored two goals and assisted another. Not bad for a 3m coach

Pity Iniesta, Isla and Sakai are injured, but Isla is returning soon (he was on Juve's bench already), and I'm almost 100% certain he'll feature in many, many Juve games to come soon enough. Hopefully he'll remain without injuries now
Mumbai (Chelsea) 2 years ago
Wud you believe I have both De Gea and Brkic in my team -- lol
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
Sakai is injured? I tried to find some info on him but found squat. Glad to hear that he is injured than not seeing him on the bench because of other issues
Rubin (Inter Milan) 2 years ago
LOL @ Mumbai  I have De Gea. I'm sure he'll start in the Champions League
Rubin (Inter Milan) 2 years ago
Double post. :S
Mumbai (Chelsea) 2 years ago
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
Whoa.... I thought you were kidding when you said you had both.... No jokes.... I feel sorry for you
Mumbai (Chelsea) 2 years ago
I planned that if Udinese really plays good then I can sell De Gea in coming transfer window to avoid rising stock of Brikic.... Smh
Last year my Keeper earned me 27 points for entire season (shalke keeper who got injured) --- well this time I am just being cautious.... Lol
Rubin (Inter Milan) 2 years ago
That's what you get for not listening to my advice Hithere.    Edit: About Silvestre
Hithere (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Sigh.... I know. Hopefully he gets back in the team quickly
Mumbai (Chelsea) 2 years ago
Damn! I lost points for clean sheet too
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 1 year ago
Haha, I have Ranocchia.... He has played every game for inter so far.... Hope it stays that way
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 1 year ago
My star players keep giving me the run around. They never perform well together in one single week! I have Lahm as my star defender and he hasn't got single cleansheet until today as bayern always concede that odd goal.

Sad to say, hazard was anon this week. Messi nearly scored so many times but still didn't score (damn the defender's own goal's assist should count!)

Instead 3m and 5m defenders are giving me some cleansheets in place of star defender. Just facepalm lol. Started DF week one in the 680+... Now still not break into 100th... Only at 142th

I just starting to feel like this:





@Jeroen this wenger gif for you, not angry one haha

Hithere (Manchester United) 1 year ago
Messi is the only star player I'm happy with right now. Ozil is not on form at the moment but I'm gonna' be patient and keep him. Jordi Alba is another one I'm gonna' be patient with too
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 1 year ago
Haha.... Yup Messi's been raking in the points.... I just hope things go better too. I used my emergency transfer too, to get more options
Rubin (Inter Milan) 1 year ago
Hithere, I think your mistake was actually spending a lot of money on Ronaldo, who hasnt performed up to his standard yet and you could've spent the money left over from a cheaper attacker on better defenders/midfielders or on subs. But perhaps Ronaldo will pick up his pace soon. Football is so unpredictable.
Jeroen (Barcelona) 1 year ago
Haha, I have exactly the same problem! Kompany is my star defender: not a single clean sheet yet. Iniesta is my star midfielder, and he hasn't even gathered 10 points yet because he's been injured for a month now. Only Messi, good old Messi, is raking in the points.

And that Wenger gif is golden
Hithere (Manchester United) 1 year ago
Ronaldo will score a boatload of goals, no worries. Ozil is a real dilemma though. I'm itching to sell him, but then I might regret it.... Arghh.... Being a fantasy football manager is so hard. :/

What happens to dreamfooty then? I have balzaretti and a 3-0 win would get him some decent points (cleansheet and win). I doubt I'd get anything for it, I know I'm clutching at straws
Hithere (Manchester United) 1 year ago
Interesting. But I'm guessing, since he didn't actually "play", he'll get 0 points. Like an unused sub of a winning team I guess
Lioto (Tottenham Hotspur) 1 year ago
I kinda guessed that, it's just disappointing
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 1 year ago
Casten was supposed to play too.... Damn.... Got a few points burnt
