Mark created the beast. He's now looking to tame it.

    There seems to be a Mane rumour every week. Why always him? » Read

    TBF you've done well by that point! » Read

    Zaha is flagged - as a doubt pending official confirmation. Just like Hazard was when he got the knock for Belgium. The Zaha situation is all a bit mysterious given that Palace apparently said it was a precaution on Monday. Palace presser is on at midday tomorrow I think. » Read

    I'd say so. I am but nervous he'll expose the Liverpool set-piece underbelly. » Read

    Yeah, see comment above - I think Whoscored list it on their player profiles. » Read

    That's what we're going to add soon. Definitely on my wishlist. » Read

    To be fair, that was an important point at the time 😉 » Read

    Nah, it's just a lot to get through at this stage in the season. Not a conscious move I assure you. » Read

  9. Moving Target - Gylfi Sigurdsson 1 day, 19 hours ago

    The prices are decided by the individuals (ISM) who built and run the game and have done since the start. There's no fancy algorithm at play, it's based on the opinion of those who have more experience than anyone else in the game and how the game's market progresses over a season.I'm not sure what your expectations are.With over 300 players to price up, we're not going to agree on every single price and if any of us carried out the task, we'd have people disagreeing with our opinion.Do you expect 100% perfect pricing in the eyes of 100% of the audience? That's not going to happen, whatever method is used and whoever is behind it. » Read

  10. The Digest - Gameweek 1 2 days, 17 hours ago

    I would have rolled it and played Dann for his set-piece threat vs Liverpool but Mkhitaryan's bandwagon was one I didn't want to let go.I know that if a player has gone up by 0.2 or more, I start to ignore his obvious appeal and argue against it, because I hate paying more than the early adopters - they get his points and pay less. That often means I start getting foolishly stubborn.So my policy is warped by my own awareness of my mentality when it comes to these early bandwagons.I don't believe that Jonty is worried by that so much. He'll often just sign the right player and not care that others have paid less and also have their points. That kind of thing bugs me. » Read

  11. The Digest - Gameweek 1 2 days, 17 hours ago

    Yeah, it's interesting.For me, I'm anticipating that Mkhitaryan might just deliver something at Swansea and then start to sky rocket. I don't want to miss one rise and be forced into a panicked hit on Saturday. I'd rather have done that now, having given it some thought.Jonty could be wise to wait for more information and I do think Mooy is an excellent signing, but for me I want to stay on top of players who I think are capable of maintaining momentum in the market - Mkhitaryan fits that profile currently.Like I said last night, I'm aware he's not nailed on when CL kicks in, but I'm not prepared to risk letting him get away from me. We know how quick the market is at this point - particularly when it comes to United assets. » Read

  12. The Big Numbers - Gameweek 1 3 days, 5 hours ago

    Sure, but why are we looking beyond the next 3-4 Gameweeks with him? I'm not, I'm getting him for here and now, riding out United's fixtures and then looking again when he becomes more of a risk.I think he'll start vs Swansea and Leicester - I might get a dcent points return and 0.2 in profit by the time Gameweek 4 comes around. I'll have another look then. » Read

  13. The Big Numbers - Gameweek 1 3 days, 5 hours ago

    Sure I agree but I'm not committing to him long term I'm getting him while he and United have some confidence and good fixtures. Plus I'm already getting a first rise from him. Get anything vs Swansea or Leicester and he'll go up 0.2 over the break and then I would perhaps look elsewhere to avoid paying 0.3 over the odds. Getting him now protects against that and with no one tempting at 7.0 it made sense. » Read

  14. Line-Up Lessons - Gameweek 1 - Part Two 3 days, 17 hours ago

    You can't currently create a custom table filtered to specific players. However, it's a good idea and something we can certainly look at. Surprising that it's never been asked before.For now, you could create a custom table with all players and use the checkboxes to only show your players. » Read

    A second debut of the day. Peter K or "Special K" as I predictably like to call him, arrives with his weekly views on the Gameweek. Lovely stuff. Welcome to the team, Peter. » Read

  19. Market Forces - Gameweek 1 4 days, 13 hours ago

    Yep, a big welcome to Nick and Tom to the site.We've never really focused on the market with a dedicated article and, given the work that these guys were doing on their own site and podcast, this made perfect sense. » Read

  20. Line-Up Lessons - Gameweek 1 - Part One 4 days, 15 hours ago

    I did think about including him but decided against it. We're not going to know on his inclusion until later this week, but which point he's unlikely to make up ground. » Read
