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.

    Pozuleo in at 4.5!!! :p

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

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
  6. Bonh assist

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. *Ronh assist?

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
      1. Was that Ronh?

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

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

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
      1. Why Molde?

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

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

            • 1 year, 1 month ago
      2. Malmö?

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

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

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

        Half shares.? ;-)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. confused with timezones

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      :-)

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

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

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

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

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

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
    2. Yes, get him in.

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

        Do you think Pozeulo will start?

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
        1. Yes, get him in too.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      • 1 year, 1 month 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, 1 month ago
      1. 100% will.

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

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

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

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

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. Silva?

      For Swansea? :-|

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. u mean soccer or ..?

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

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
        1. Uv obviously never watched stoke

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

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

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

        :-)

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
    2. nice to know!

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

      I can't decide :-)

      • 1 year, 1 month 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, 1 month ago
      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    • 1 year, 1 month 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, 1 month ago
  24. RMT

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

    Thanks!

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

    So I am.

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

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. Fin

      *bitchez

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
  26. Pick one:

    A) Michu
    B) Mirallas

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. Mirallas + 1.5 m

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
      1. indeed

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
    2. Thanks guys!

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

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

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

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

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

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

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. For emma forever ago

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    2. I love winter time

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
