KPI Analysis – Robin Van Persie

Filed under: Members - Posted by: Paul

A fortnight ago, we rolled out a Preview Movie of the latest addition to our Members Area – the Key Performance Indicators (KPI) tables. Essentially, these track the frequency of certain key statistics that can help Fantasy managers identify a player’s form – whether it be a turn for the good or worse – over a Gameweek range or season. With this in mind, our first KPI focused members article looks at Robin Van Persie’s first season at United compared to his final year leading the line for Arsenal.

By tracking Van Persie’s frequency of key stats, Fantasy managers can begin to quantify and identify the exact areas of the Dutchman’s game that have altered since his move to Old Trafford last summer as they prepare potential investment for the season ahead.

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  3. OMG Pozuelo

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  4. Pozeulo get starting postition? Would get him as cheap mid if so!

    • 1 year, 3 months ago

    Pozuleo in at 4.5!!! :p

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. If he can get in the starting XI ahead of Dyer, then yes.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  6. Bonh assist

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. *Ronh assist?

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Was that Ronh?

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
  7. What we learned today, Michu, Bony, and Pozuelo are must haves. Ignore their fixtures, class will prevail. :)

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Now we just need to get Mölde in the PL and playing them for the first game :D

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Why Molde?

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. Oh yeah it was Malmö :D. Too late and still at work, head getting messed up

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. Hey, that's my hometown you are talking about... :D

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
      2. Malmö?

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. look who they are playing...?!

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  8. Last page, matchday craziness repost

    In Dailymail FF you can sub in your spare players daily. So I need a CS keeping Sunday/monday keeper and a CS keeping saturday keeper. Who falls into these categories?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. @Evs you can get a million quid for picking the perfect starting 11! Interested now? Set up a team and forget about it.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Evs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

        Oh lovely, I'll take a look then :lol:

        Half shares.? ;-)

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. Different keepers every week ;)

      Teams in Europa will often play on Sunday so one of Vorm/Lloris could serve you well.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. 32 transfers per season.
        5 captain changes per season.

        the transfers can be used to change your captain without losing a captain change. I am not touching those keepers.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. I wasn't suggesting you did.

          A Europa team will get you more Sunday games than most. For Saturday games, you probably want a team that will be televised as little as possible. So a Stoke, Norwich, Hull.

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. Yeah considering Lloris and Ruddy. Should be good for CS's. Lose a point for every goal conceded and get nothing for saves. Jaask instead of Ruddy if money allows.

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
  9. Somebody tell me all about Pozuelo...I've seen his name once ot twice in RMT's but that's my lot...Where does he play ?...who is he in contention for a place with ?...

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. CAM. I guess Shelvey is his threat.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Michu is play the CAM role..

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. Don't really know anything about the guy. It seems that he won't be first choice but he's scored well in preseason. Worth monitoring, if he can come off the bench in the league and score he could be of more use than Thomas.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    3. Can play on any wing.
      Came on for Dyer who I reckon he'll be in contention with.
      Cost 4.5m :D

      Oh and he's Spanish.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Good...Dyer is a decent player but somebody with a bit of class could easily challenge him...either wing has got to be good, especially when he notches from straight down the middle !!!....Watchlist...Thanks lads...

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
  10. REPOST:

    Gents please help needed!! i CANT decide which team to have

    A. Team with defenders from 3 big teams and basically no bench options (thomas)

    Speroni / Boruc
    Collins / Toure / Terry / Zabaleta / Chester
    Thomas / Lampard / Coutinho / Hazard / Walcott
    Lambert / Dzeko / Giroud

    FT, £1.5m in the bank.

    B. team with cheap defense and the nice headache of choices and who to bench (i dont mind)

    Speroni / Boruc
    Collins / Turner / Yanga-Mbiwa / Clyne / Chester
    Silva / Lampard / Coutinho / Hazard / Walcott
    Lukaku / Dzeko / Giroud

    FT, £0.0m in the bank.

    C. Kind of combination of the above two with mirallas as bench and kolo, mertesacker

    Speroni / Boruc
    Collins / Turner / Mertesacker / Toure / Chester
    Mirallas / Lampard / Coutinho / Hazard / Walcott
    Lukaku / Dzeko / Giroud

    FT, £0.0m in the bank

    kindly awaiting for some replies

    thanks

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Number C. Ps you could have saved yourself a lot of typing.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. You seem really set on that forward line but there is too much wrong with it to worry about defensive and midfield adjustments.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    3. i thank u both for your replies

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  11. This has probably been asked before, but when should we expect the prices for Brayford and Soldado to be released on the FPL site.

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. before the start of the season I guess

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. but you wont have him anyway

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. Come on! I am going to have him in to replace Bony after I put in Bony to replace Dzeko after I it in Dzeko to replace JRod. It's academic, really.

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
  12. how many hours till the chelsea game?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. confused with timezones

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. 3hours 30minutes to go I think

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. thanks.. wanna bet based on lineups

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. Same here :P. Had a nice Swansea HT/FT come in tonight on a free bet.

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
  13. Everyone saying how impressive Swansea are...look who they are playing?????????? Compare this to when they face Man Utd on the opening.

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Evs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

      They put 7 on Hibs over 2 legs, plus they are 17 games into their league so match fit.

      I think Swansea have played well.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Yeah, Swansea have been fairly slick in fairness.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
      2. impressed with Bony though I have to say.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. Evs
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights

          I was more impressed with Michu tbh in the hour he played !

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. :cool:
      Zaha and RVP

      :-)

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    3. You can only beat what is put in front of you and Swansea are doing it in style.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  14. Never realised United made a third bid for Fabs. Chasing a lost cause now though, i think :-(

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  15. I know Shelvey got off to a bad start at Liverpool, but might seriously consider him now he's at Swansea, looks class.

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Evs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

      ... But was playing 'deeper' whilst Michu was on the field.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Suppose the best test for him will be when Michu isn't playing.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. Yes, get him in.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Your mad to get him in :-D

        Do you think Pozeulo will start?

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. Yes, get him in too.

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. are you messing or being serios now? I can't tell :-|

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
    3. his crosspasses showing great potential..

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    4. Good feet but give ball away so often.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    5. Could be good if he holds down a place.

      He's extremely greedy and wants to score. Good for FPL.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  16. Swans have looked incredible. Albeit vs a poor side.

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. They look fit and sharp too which is important at the start of a season

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. I wonder if these qualifiers will benefit Swansea early season. Gives a level of fitness ordinary friendlies just don't provide

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. 100% will.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
      2. Evs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

        Agree, they will be handful gw1 for united at home.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. I think they'll turn them over.

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
  17. Is Silva playing? If so, how's he done?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Silva?

      For Swansea? :-|

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  18. Lucky guess but around 10 times tonight someone asked how much is Bony and there were at least 5 RMT with him in it..? :P lol You gotta love the bandwagons :) :lol:

    Come on join me on this bandwagonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. I'm sticking with Dzeko and Sturridge if either don't work out then he will get his chance.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. I think Negredo is first choice and Sturridge fitness worries me. Not GW 1 only, but overall

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
          • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. why did the coach tell everyone on multiple occasions that it is Dzeko than ?

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. If fixtures weren't poor he'd be a lock in for me.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  19. My first draft of my team for the start, going for a no Bale and RVP team

    a) I'm not confident in that bale will be here for the start and if he is his mind will be diving into other thoughts.

    b) RVP is really just to expensive to shoehorn in

    Tried to go for a more balanced team this year and try and avoid making an extortionate amount of transfers and hits and early wild cards.

    Does this team look ok or is it to much of a bandwagon team?

    Davis - Boruc

    Toure - Chester - Mertesacker - Luiz - Mcnaughton

    Hazard - Coutinho - Michu - Barkley- Silva

    Lukaku - Dzeko - Giroud

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Boni maybe..? he scored a brace tonight . Dzeko was benched for Negredo

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Ta

        Not seen the city game yet (only just got the laptop of the wife) will have a look

        If this is going to be the case that he will become bench fodder then I will buy an appropriate player and upgrade my midfied and play 5 in midfield

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
  20. Bony fail. Misses chance for Hat-trick

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. ya.....he's shite, isn't he!?

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. outrageous. back to being anonymous :P :lol: ;)

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  21. i think i am in a love with football. it is such a cute sport

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. u mean soccer or ..?

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. yes. it so beautiful the way the players pass around the ball

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. Uv obviously never watched stoke

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. they have a beautiful atmosphere and delicious jersies

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
        2. well they do call it the beautiful game after all...

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
      2. :shock:
        Football? Useless! Soccer on the other hand.........................

        :-)

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. nice to know!

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  22. now then here is an interesting one...

    A. RVP, Anelka, Sess

    B. Soldado, Benteke, Oscar

    assuming soldado will be 9-9.5

    votes?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Oooh, the second one looks better overall, but its still RVP-less.

      I can't decide :-)

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. thing is, i honestly dont think i would captain rvp for the first 3 or 4 GWs, so might go with B. just keep fingers crossed soldado isnt 10 or more

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  23. Jeeeeez, my whole team is gonna be based on whether or not I pick RVP. 14 million is still ridiculous, forward line looks much better with him in but MIDFIELD looks weak with him in

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  24. RMT

    Mannone (Boruc)
    Coleman, Baines, Cahill (Chester, Parr)
    Silva, Hazard, Wally, Mirallas (Thomas)
    Dzeko, Lukaku, Sturridge

    Thanks!

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  25. I'm going to ride all of these bandwagons until they're raw.

    So I am.

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. It made me "LOL" by adding "So I am." to the end :-)

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Fin

      *bitchez

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  26. Pick one:

    A) Michu
    B) Mirallas

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Mirallas + 1.5 m

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. indeed

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. Thanks guys!

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    3. Early fixture, Mirallas.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  27. I love the way the weather forecast people fudge the prediction. Lets put on a Sun symbol. And throw a grey cloud nearby just in case...oh and while were at it a little cloud with a few drops

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  28. My feeling/ Negredo is first choice. Pelegrini signing scored 25goals in La Liga. Dzeko is obviously the back up. no matter what Pelegrini says. Mark my words. I am gonna love the Negredo punt if Sturridge is still injured. We will talk when the season starts but surely surely Negredo is above Dzeko in the pecking order for strikers when City comes to discussion

    Kun, Jovetic, Silva, Navas all can play on the flanks or as in out strikers

    Thoughts.. ? .

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. main conclusion for city attack - ROTATION

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. Ive been monitoring Dzeko and im not going to take the risk as already planning on having Lukaku so having 2 none nailed on forwards is too much for me.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    3. got to go with what pellegrini said. Will look rather stupid picking negredo and he doesn't start on the Monday night

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    4. So are you going with any of them from the start of the season?

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Is Parr nailed on Matt?

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. yeah I would say so. That's assuming he's fit for the start of the season which I think he will be considering he returned to training about a week ago

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
    5. Nice article guys, interesting new tool, be cool to see what we can get out of it.

      Still 95% sure on going without RVP.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    6. Probs wont touch either. Lukaku, solado and one other for me. Probs sturridge or giroud

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  29. It's gonna be a Bony'ver...

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. For emma forever ago

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. I love winter time

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
