The Bargains That Rose In Price - DF 12/13
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 4 years ago
I've been following the Dreamfooty prices... And remembered for example getting ryan taylor for 3m at the start of last season but eventually lost track as the season wore on.

Thought of keeping a thread to note the meteoric rise of bargain players over the course of DF season. And as Matt Promised, The price changes have arrived sooner than later...

So let's all add to this thread and celebrate our bargains Hopefully this would help us to understand each league and it's players better. (I actually know nothing much about Bundesliga till I started playing DF last season)

**Disclaimer: I understand many people want to win the DF, so you may resist posting your bargains until after 1 sept or after they rise in price from their original**

Introducing one of the top capture at early stage of DF to start the ball rolling -drumsroll-

Michu (3m to 8m - correct as of 28/8)

His performances for swans made many people sit up and take note and put him on their DF teams! A virtual unknown to many outside LaLiga, he actually was one of the better players for Rayo Vallecano, scoring a blistering 17 goals in 39 appearances in his first season.

Michu signed a 3 year contract with Swansea City for just £2 million! He could prove to be the transfer of season for the Swans as the top scorer now with 3 goals in just 2 games gone in the EPL.

Signs are that He has the ability to replicate what he did at Rayo Vallecano after fitting in seamlessly into Michael Laudrup's new look Swans.

Other possible bargains related to Michu:
J. De Guzman (4m)
Michael Laudrup (3.5m) brought in Guzman on a season long deal from Villarreal. He has worked with swans boss previously at Mallorca and looks an important player for Swans in the starting two games in the starting XI.

I got Modric for 11 mil from Tottenham, now he's 14. 5 at RM
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Haha, wow you got modric cheap. I hope he gets some games against competition at Real! He could turn out to be a good signing for them

Eden Hazard (10m to 13m - correct as of 28/8)

Signed for a fee believed to be £32m hazard was a bargain in DF for his calibre at 10m.

Many questioned whether hazard would be able to step up his game but with 3 assists and a goal he looks a good bet for chelsea's hopes and our DF teams.

Having ability to unlock defences and bring others play is a plus, even Torres is playing well with his supply and linkup play from midfield.

Falcao(14m to 16m - correct as of 28/8)

The player facepalming behind Falcao says it all. With 3 goals and an assist in the opening two games, which included a blistering hatrick against Bilbao the Columbian Ace represents a bargain for being potentially a star Striker on anyone's DF team. Probably the next best thing after Messi and Ronaldo.

36 goals in all competitions last season is not so shabby. Pretty good deal at 14m. Still decent at 16m
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Agreed mate. He's a beast haha called tigreee
Sumdumfu (Los Angeles Galaxy) 4 years ago
Hahah I have all these guys on my squad with their cheaper prices DD
Rubin (Inter Milan) 4 years ago
I got Hazard at 10m and Falcao at 14m.  Another bargain imo was Welington, Malaga defender, for 3. 5m. Now he's worth 7m.

Bas Dost(Wolfsburg) 3 million - 6 million
Hithere (Manchester United) 4 years ago
I haz him it's a steal
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Haha. I don't know aboutthis player at all! My knowledge of Bundesliga is still quite lacking
BlackAna (Liverpool) 4 years ago
Wow 3 million, what a steal for whoever got him early
Gerrard4ever (Liverpool) 4 years ago
Well he is coming in from the dutch league. I had him for 3m but then sold him but decided to go back to him and his price had gone up by 3m. I didn't really understand this because he hadn't scored any goals yet where as michu had scroed 3 already and his price remained the same
Hithere (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Michu's price has gone up. And bas Dost did score, in the opening game. Also scored in the German Pokal cup before that
Gerrard4ever (Liverpool) 4 years ago
I didn't mean yesterday, a week back. Dost's price went up before he scored in the league. Where as michu who had scored in the league twice had the same price.

Whatever though I got michu when he was cheap and I don't need dost so its all good

Fergusson 11, 5 --> 14
SongkyKong (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Fellaini 8. 5-11m
Badge (Footytube Moderator) 4 years ago
Hazard: First change in price: 10m to 13m. He's now worth 15m! Holy crap!

Shinji Kagawa: 11m to 14m.

Coentra costs 12m. I think he was cheaper before, too. Not sure, though
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Coentrao was 9 million before
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 4 years ago
He's now hit with a ban of four matches
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Already has served one
BlackAna (Liverpool) 4 years ago
I am pretty sure E. Elia was 4m earlier in the window, I was hoping to make some late changes and put him in as a bargain sub, but he is now 8. 0m, ah well.

Bargains that are available right now, which I had once decided to use but later switched are:

Edit: I made the hints even more vague now and removed one, since I may add them back.

-A manager in Bundesliga at a good club. (in Europa League)

-A Goalkeeper in Bundesliga, wears blue, recently acquired by his team. (might be risk since the team is inconsistent but he is very good and may help get clean sheets)

-A Defender in Bundesliga, who is the captain of his team. (cheap because of injuries last season, may be a risk)

There are more, but I will only posts these so I won't spoil it for some
BlackAna (Liverpool) 4 years ago
Hints will be removed in about 8 hours or even much less.
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Haha I think I know which gk you talking about. Theres another italy gk that's cheap too
BlackAna (Liverpool) 4 years ago
Yea he is so cheap it's unbelievable, I would put him if I was short on cash
Hithere (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Defender is Howedes (sp?) of course  And I'm guessing that the manager is the Bayer Leverkusen manager
Jeroen (Barcelona) 4 years ago
Adler from HSV?
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Spot on Jeroen. Haha. I know about him only cos He was my top GK in Football Manager lol
BlackAna (Liverpool) 4 years ago
Howedes is right, and so is Bayer Leverkusen, Adler is wrong. T. Wiese is who I was referring to but Adler is good, just that his team may not do as well as Hoffenheim, who knows.

I added more hints in the "Finding a Bargain - A Guide" thread

To be honest I am disappointed with the "dynamic price changes" so far. Although some major standouts (Michu, Hazard) have risen in price, I havent seen any price reductions as the description suggested there would be. I feel like maybe players such as Dempsey, Aguero, Rooney should have had prices reduced. Anyone else feel that way?
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Hmmm, true enough, we haven't really seen anyone's price drop just yet. But I think we can expect it to increase more than decrease over the season.

Last season, there were 2-3m players at the start that all rose to 4m regardless of how well they played
Hithere (Manchester United) 4 years ago
I agree about the price decrease. Players like Rooney should definitely decrease in price
Tecko (Arsenal) 4 years ago
Naldo 3 mil to 7 mil
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Vidic11m to 14. 5m    I don't quite understand how vidic's price rose lol
ZIZOO (Real Madrid) 4 years ago
He scored a goal last game
Hithere (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Cazorla rose from 11m to 13m.... WHY? He's a great player but after 2 goalless draws, his price went up?
Gerrard4ever (Liverpool) 4 years ago
Maybe many people are buying him?
