The Bargains That Rose In Price - DF 12/13
OneTouch (Real Madrid) 4 years ago
Does anyone have a recommendation for a (Currently) 4. 5 defender who will start and is either in Europa/Champs? .... Besides Joao Pereiera. Any advice would help?

I want to replace Cuellar (3. 5) and upgrade to 4. 5 defender....

Current team

- Boas -

Nacho Monreal - Kolorov - Carlos Cuellar - Joao pereiera

Cazorla - Hazard - Di Maria

Balotelli - Ronaldo - Messi

Ranocchia from Inter maybe?

I gasped when I read Ronaldo and then Messi. Now I think my team is s**t.
OneTouch (Real Madrid) 4 years ago
Hmmm.... Very interesting option. Thank you. Any ideas for a 9m coach. I am stuck between Boas (TOT) Pellegrino (valencia) A pardew (newcastle) Pelligrino (malaga) and M Carerra (juve)

I see Boas and Pellegrino to be best due to amount of possible scoring/assisting substitutes but see Juve as getting more wins.... Any suggestions or advice?

Hithere (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Carerra, probably. I personally won't pick Malaga (they seem unpredictable) and to be honest, I don't know a lot about the Valencia squad.
Avb might be interesting but since they have only two strikers in Defoe and Ade (at the moment), I don't trust them much in terms of scoring goals. Or I might be completely wrong and Defoe will keep coming off the bench to score goals. No idea what their new signings will bring either.
Pardew might be good if Newcastle continues their form and do well in the Europa league. But it's hard to see Newcastle top last year's form, especially if they have a European hangover.

At the end of the day, Juve had a great year and everybody agrees that it's their title to lose this year. Unless something goes horribly wrong, I'd say Carerra is the best choice. But he's 10m now, right?

I agree on Malaga - they lost key players over the summer (cazorla) and new signings will have to gel before success.
Valencia has the same set up as spurs and relies heavily on two strikers.

I think you are right on with the Juve Call. That means I need to drop either João Pereira or A. Ranocchia and pick up a solid defender (same conditions as above for 3. 5)

I think its worth dropping a defender from 4 to 3. 5 so I can switch from AVB to Carerra.... ?
Hithere (Manchester United) 4 years ago
I wouldn't drop João Pereira. As for a 3. 5m defender.... Good luck! You might have to look in the Bundesliga for that
OneTouch (Real Madrid) 4 years ago
Thanks man, good advice. After watching this first half of the supercup, I may end up regretting selling Falcao (among dropping a better coach) whom I bought well before price increase so I could cram messi in.... The guy is a ruthless animal...
Hithere (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Same man. Disappointed I didn't get Falcao. I have a feeling the top 10 teams will all be Falcao + Ronaldo + Messi front 3. Unless one of them get a long term injury

I still don't get how people are putting messi and ronaldo together

Pedro leon - getafe 3. 5 m defender
Rubin (Inter Milan) 4 years ago
Schalke's coach costs 9m

I got Caballero from Malaga for 6. 5 now 8 (might be risky but I figure keepers are always going to concede so I should go with a starting keeper that will play champions league and has a solid chance of placing in top 3-6 of league.... We will see...

As many people have discussed, The dynamic prices seem to be more on the rise than going ever to drop. Just to note, last season all 3m players eventually became 4m towards the end. I believe the only advantages are getting the players early because they are never gonna' be sold at the same cut-down prices again.

Hope everyone had a happy Transfer Window!

Updating this list of price changes of recent Transfer window:
Michu 3m-> 8m-> 8.5m
Eden Hazard 10m-> 13m-> 15m
Welington 3.5m-> 7m-> 9m
W. Caballero 6.5m-> 8m-> 9.5m
M. Slomka 7m-> 13m
V. Petkovic 3m-> 8m
F. Giefer 3m-> 8m
Nacho Monreal 7m-> 9.5m
André Dias 6m-> 10m
G. Biava 7m-> 8m
S. Malezas 3m-> 8m
J. Van den Bergh 3m-> 8m
S. Huszti 4m-> 13m
Isco 7.5m-> 8m
Eliseu 5.5m-> 8m
L. Andreasen 5.5m-> 12m
M. Mandžukić 10.5m-> 11m
J. Schlaudraff 9m-> 10m

Not surprisingly, this list of players whose prices rose are from the Top 20's List, with Lazio Roma, Hannover 96, Málaga, Fortuna Düsseldorf being surprise packages early in the season.

Finally back to club football again

Wow, you've been keeping track of the prices well!

Most frustrating of those changes for me is Isco 7. 5 > 8m. Because that little 0. 5m rise means I can't get him anymore
Jeroen (Barcelona) 4 years ago
Thanks for sharing that information Zhen, really nice of you! A bit depressing to see I missed out on a 3. 5m-rated Wellington though.... Damn, what a bargain! Love the pics you added too
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Lol.... I wanted to reply to this but ended up making a new post.... Hahahaha Noob me lol

@hithere: Yup haha, keeping the lookout for bargains really.

I almost got Isco as well, hahaha he seems to be a starter, if I had extra funds would have got him on the team...
Jeroen (Barcelona) 4 years ago
Isco is not just a starter; he's the star of Málaga. I told you, didn't I Zhen? Or was that not you?
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Yup you did! Hahahaha. I did my homework too. By my old comment, I was saying he started all the games for his club so far this season.

Especially after stars like carzola left people thought malaga would struggle, but he is one bright spark for them. And not to mention, he scored a goal in their match that just went by and malaga won
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Yea! I have been keeping tabs on the prices (I actually went to extent of copying the prices out to notepad) unfortunately, My limited knowledge means I won't know other players who changed pricing outside the Top 20's or if the player is on my team because it's too tedious to compare one by one player.

So, I would need help from all of us to keep note of the pricing.

Haha, I hope I could start a post on the players who went down in pricing though, haha. Can't see it happening any time soon though. Magneto said that the mods are considering that, so we may see some price dips, but I'm not expecting it to be alot, but even a little drop of 1-3m is good.

@jeroen: yea! Wellington would really have been a total bargain of a top defender in DF thus far
