Football Index: Can form and fixtures make new-look Everton a good bet?


Sponsored by Football Index


Into week two of my adventures in the land of Football Index (FI) and I’m learning some lessons already.

Just as a reminder, FI is, in essence, a stockmarket where people use real money to bet on footballers, with the value of these shares then going up or down based on market forces.

Players can also win money on these shares through a series of dividends, which are individual pay-outs based on match day performances, positive coverage in the media and consistent excellence across each month of action.

And the shares I’ve bought in the last week or so have certainly been on a few… journeys recently.

My pick for last week, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, is a great case in point. The Arsenal man enjoyed a decent Gameweek 1 at Fulham, scoring his first goal of the season in a 3-0 win.

That was particularly pleasing for his massive Fantasy Premier League (FPL) ownership – close to 50% now – as he was the captaincy choice of many, so brought in double points.

Over on FI, his performance score of 127 – based on a wide range of metrics, including goals scored, chances missed etc – was well above his average of the past few months, but not good enough to win extra cash from a match day dividend when the likes of Mohamed Salah are hitting hat-tricks and recording a performance score of 358.

Not that dividends and Aubameyang haven’t been a success for me so far. Ongoing contract talks and his solid performance at Craven Cottage have meant he’s been in the news consistently, thus winning me media dividend pay-outs.

I mentioned last week that the Arsenal man was going to be a longer-term bet, and that’s just as well based on his yo-yoing share price.

I bought into him at £2.22 a share. That peaked at £2.53 the day before the season started, and at the time of writing, he’s trading at £2.27. One to hold, especially with the dividend opportunities that await in the Europa League.
To add to a positive week, Aubameyang has just signed his new three-year contract, so was able to win media dividends through this breaking news.

As for my other two bets, Callum Wilson’s share price is (currently) plenty higher than when I bought in and he’s also won me the most in dividends, while Leeds man Rodrigo’s key moment in the 4-3 madness at Anfield was to give away the penalty that won Liverpool the match.

So well done Rodrigo, you mugged me off there. But he’s another one I’ve bet on for the long term, so I’m maintaining a Zen-like calm. For now.

Overall my portfolio is up, so Gameweek 1 has been a qualified success.

This Week I Am Mostly Buying Into… Everton.

One game does not a season make, but the world and their life partner were left very impressed by the Toffees’ away win at Spurs.

James Rodriguez’s debut was a belter and, at the time of writing, he leads the way for Gameweek 1 chances created (five), although it was Lucas Digne who ended up with the assist for Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s winner.

I’m tempted by all of Everton’s attackers, and new man Abdoulaye Doucoure shouldn’t be ignored either – he created four chances against Tottenham, although he had no attempts on goal, whereas James managed three.

The jury is, therefore, out on exactly which Everton player I’ll bet on, but it will definitely be one of them, especially as they’ll be entertaining West Brom next; a team that allowed a Gameweek-high four big chances at the weekend.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men have a great schedule from now through to the middle of December, with their two trickiest matches – a Merseyside derby and Manchester United – both taking place at Goodison Park.

The blessed union of form and fixtures is a beautiful thing in FPL. It’s time to see if the same applies to FI.

        Paul Joyce "Liverpool have stepped up their interest in Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara. They will look to sign him regardless of another midfielder leaving. Around £27m"

        I would guess him or jones on loan to go thou.

      Amazing news!!

    Over the next few weeks which 3 from the below 5 do you think will score the most points? Thanks

    Bruno - Salah - KDB - Auba - Rashford

    1. gunnerboy
      • 8 Years

      Salah, KDB and Auba

    2. Miguel Sanchez

      probably all very similar scores, but I think you have the correct order

  4. Kudo Warrior
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Justin or C.Tayor?

    Normally i'd go Taylor but hearing all the hype on Justin is swaying me...

    1. HODGE
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Justin for me

    2. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Theres hype around justin?

    3. Marquee
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Taylor all day.

  5. gunnerboy
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    What's up with Pulisic? Is he injured or what? And finally, is he likely to play against Liverpool?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Lingering injury - outside chance of sub appearance vs Liverpool this weekend

  6. Ghost86
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Really don’t want to use a transfer this week on Vinagre.

    Will he drop in price and would you transfer him out save 0.1?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I have him too and will hold and hope. The two free trades next week more important than losing 0.1m

    2. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      if your move is Auba to KDB next week, then you'll have some money itb so best to wait in that case. If not, i think its fine to move on

    3. JustSomeGuy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Unless you have planned for 2FT next week, just get him out. It's the reason we have transfers.

      Although I don't think his transfer have change much since yesterday, so might make it into GW2 without a drop.

      Then again, maybe he gets a shot next week 😉

    4. TAArt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      As a fellow owner who needs to get rid please hold off until next week! Want his price to hold

  7. Old Gregg

    McCarthy
    Dier-Taa- Taylor-Egan
    Harertz-Bruno-Auba
    Adams-Werner-martial

    Steer-Soucek-Biss-Mitchell

    Correct bench?.

    Worth a hit?
    Havertz > J Rod (-4)

    1. HODGE
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah its worth a hit

      1. Old Gregg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Thanks

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years

      Looks good (but no hit).

      1. Old Gregg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Thanks

    3. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Soucek over Taylor for me

      Wait to hear Puli and Ziyech news to make a decision on Havertz move imo

      1. Old Gregg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Sound advice. Thanks

    Hi guys, any comments on this Wildcard team?

    Ryan / Steer
    Coleman, Shaw, Saiss, Lamptey, Mitchell,
    Auba, KDB, J Rodríguez, Fernandes (Bissouma)
    DCL, Martial, Watkins

    Lamptey could become Taylor from Burnley? & Watkins Mitro as the fixtures are good? - Opinions (0 in bank)

    Also next week I could do Auba to Salah to bring Salah back or do Auba to Sterling

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I wouldn’t be getting these guys ....

    • 6 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Vinagre - thoughts please?

    B )would you get rid for a hit?

    1. Marquee
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I’m waiting another week. Lamptey will be my pick I think.

  12. Irish Villan 1985
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Wasn't happy with team, panicked and played WC 🙁

    What's your thoughts?

    Martinez

    TAA, Holding, Lascelles, Justin

    Salah, Fernandes, KDB, Willian

    Werner, Watkins

    BENCH, not much!!

    Thanks.

    1. Gazpilicueta
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      needs more martial, James, Mitchell and Jimenez

    2. HODGE
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Dont think 3 high priced mids is the way to go, ditch one and upgrade

    3. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Willian plan?

  13. Melon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    I'm right to start Justin over James this week, right?

    TAA and Robbo are my other defenders.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Right call

  14. Klopp it
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Please help me this is my wildcard team atm,

    Martinez
    Castagne, Digne, taa
    Bissouma, soucek, Salah, kdb, James Rodriguez
    Martial, werner

    Bench, nyland, saiss, Mitchell, brewster

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Looks good but would play Saiss over Bissouma

    2. MartialMatas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Mitchell unlikely to get many more games with pva coming back. Wouldn't go for soucek on wc. West ham look dreadful
      Otherwise good imo

    3. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      if i was on WC, i'd go without Mo

      playing a 4.5 and a 5m mid isnt good, perhaps digne down to keane or castagne down to justin to improve those mid slots

  15. MartialMatas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Good to go?

    Meslier
    TAA Robertson Dier
    Aubameyang(c) Bruno Havertz Foden Soucek
    Werner DCL

    Steer KWP Brewster Ferguson
    0ft £0m itb

  16. gunnerboy
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Anyone captaining Martial this weekend?

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      i'm very tempted

    2. HODGE
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I was thinking about yes, also own Auba.

      Are you are thinking of it?

      1. gunnerboy
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Own Auba and Salah.

        I think I'm going with Martial. Nice differential if it pays off...

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Have read some analysis touting him as a better shout than Bruno at home

      1. Tempestic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Yeh but what about Auba

        1. HODGE
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Part of me just feels Auba is due to not score in a game, stupid logic maybe but feel Martial is a good option

        2. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Auba the obvious captain if you own

    4. JustSomeGuy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I have Rash/Bruno, tempted by them, but can't bring myself to move it from Auba...

  17. MAXIMIN EFFORT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Martinez | Steer
    Digne | Saiss | Coady | Ayling | Ferguson
    Auba | Fernandes | Rodriguez | Klich | Bissouma
    Martial | Jimenez | Richarlison

    Wildcard team, I activated it off the back of an 80 point gw so felt a little odd but with price rises/falls and a number of failed punts, I felt it made sense to move whilst in a position of strength

    Emi - Solid defence since covid, love the guy as an Arsenal fan and he's honestly a world class keeper. Will improve them.

    Steer - Back-up for Emi, but could be Nyland

    Digne - Not sure whether he's worth 6, if anyone has any opinion on him it'd be appreciated.

    Saiss - Great player, looked amazing GW1 and the best value defense in the league. A must have and I can't see him being dropped.

    Coady - Most secure 5 mil option, will tick along with that fixture run. I was contemplating him or Podence as my third Wolves player, went for Connor due to nailedness and my doubts over whether Podence will ever really haul beyond single figures.

    Auba - Will sell for City next GW, best option for captain this week

    Fernandes - Sold Salah for him as that was always my strategy; not going to let 2 penalties sway me. Granted his underlying stats are crazy, but I won't captain Salah in the next four. Bruno is great value even at 10.5.

    Rodriguez - Immense debut, can't see him being a Modric, he will create a lot of chances, and will haul in the next 3. Owned him last week and a little annoyed he blanked as others now realise how great an option he is. Ahh well.

    Klich - On pens, plays similarly to Soucek in terms of getting forward, and got praise from Bielsa after GW1, massive player for them and will tick along.

    Bissouma - Impressed me vs Chelsea, definitely the best 4.5 option, likes to have a dig and can get forward.

    Martial - 6G 4A post restart, he'll score most weeks and is the focal point. His underlying stats are great and whilst the fixtures aren't amazing, they're still good enough.

    Richarlison - Excited about owning him, was wasteful against Spurs but James cutting in really opens space for him. Can see him hauling this weekend, especially with WBA being so bad down that side of the pitch.

    Jimenez - Beast, will tick along, never captain never bench. Solid solid fixtures and a great VFM option.

    Thoughts appreciated as always

      excellent WC team, i like it a lot

      Rich down to DCL allows you to get Klich up to Greenwood or Foden, i think i like that way more

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Cheers mate, I just don't like DCL it's a mental block for me - he's a decent option though I can't lie.

        I forgot to say I have 1.5 in the bank, going to monitor Foden and Greenwood after their controversy; they're young it could effect their form.

        1. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Digne to Trent and Coady to Keane then 🙂

          1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Thanks, might do that!

        2. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          i just dont like relying on pens for a mid guy who doesnt offer a lot, i prefer Harrison in that spot

          1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Harrison is bang average, think he scored 6 in the Championship or something like that. I'd rather a pens type who will tick along.

    2. MAXIMIN EFFORT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      forgot Ayling, nailed and decent short-term fixtures. Ferguson is bench fodder but could be a starting 4 mil.

    3. HODGE
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Very very good front line, but id be worried with no Salah he will massively hurt you at times.

      Also there has to be a better option than Coady he does not go forward at all

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Thanks man, who would you suggest instead of Coady? I agree about Salah but I want to play aggressively this season, I wouldn't captain him anyway.

    4. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Like it a lot and have a similar set up but went fro Wilson at 6.5 in the forwards who i see as great value but just means I have to choose between two of Rich, Jim and Martial.

      Not sold on Coady who has such a low ceiling, would consider Marcal over him

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Marcal had 7 touches all game in the opposition half, I think Coady over him for nailness makes sense

      2. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Can't see Marcal being 100% nailed, I don't want to touch my defense now so nailedness is my priority. He also didn't look that attacking.

        Wilson's fixtures don't scream goals but he's a decent option. I'd go Martial and Jimmy for you, Rich is my exciting punt but he's not a banker like the other two.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Yeah I do love Rich and want him for that WBA game this weekend...

    5. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      No TAA will hurt

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        And no City

        Cheers mate, just decided I don't like Pool without the clean sheets. Granted they may come but the form has been suspect for too long!

      Bamford shares pens for Leeds - Harrison better option imo

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Podence/Doucoure better options as well

        This is news to me! Thanks for that

      Not sure about having no Liverpool, otherwise good team.

      Like it, quite similar to my current WC draft. Not keen on any Chelsea? They have three home fixtures in the next four with the single away game being against WBA.

        Yeah for sure, if Richarlison blanks it's him to Werner (1.5 in the bank). If Rich hauls I've got a headache haha but may do it anyway. 3 Everton is probably too much anyway.

        Can I see your draft please bud? Curious

          Sorry missed this earlier.

          Pickford - Button
          AWB - Saiss - Lamptey - Dallas - Thomas
          Auba - Bruno - Hames - Podence - Bissouma
          Werner - Martial - Jimenez

      Looks excellent. Two changes I’d make are Mitchell in for Ferguson and Klich out. Mitchell is already starting and could easily rise, his place to lose if palace keep on keeping clean sheets. Leeds fans know better but won’t Klich be most likely to make way if they sign De Paul from Udinese?

        Cheers mate, the lack of Klich popularity in these responses is changing my thinking. Will mull on it. Can see PVA coming back, he's an established flair PL player and think Roy likes him.

    Can Salah or Martial match Aubameyang this week?

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      They can surely but I'd Fancy Auba personally

  19. Inazuma X1

    Bale to Spurs done!

    Gareth Bale to Tottenham, here we go! Last details to be sorted about salary [shared with Real Madrid] and Gareth will fly tomorrow to London. He’ll complete medicals and join #THFC - one year loan. Mourinho approved the deal. Reguilon expected for tomorrow too [100% done].

      Some big signings this summer

      Werner, Havertz, Thiago, Bale

    2. mynameisq
      • 7 Years

      Huge transfer, he's only 31 and still high quality. If he can stay fit this is a game changer

      1. tokara
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        He will stay fit like he did for wales

    3. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ

      Is it a new Twitter thing to keep saying "done" and "100%" on transfers which clearly aren't done or 100% yet? About the 4th time I have seen this today!

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Mate there's like 0.1% chance that it fails. 100% is an approximation of 99.9%

        1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          See, I would say done and 100% mean finalised, all over, end of story etc, and I'm sure historically this is in line with what was being reported in the media. Just interesting to me that this seems to have evolved to be a little looser these days. That's all 🙂

      2. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Depends on the source, when certain sources say 100% then it's basically done bar a dream John Obi Mikel signing for utd and then signing for Chelsea scenario

        1. mynameisq
          • 7 Years

          Freak* not dream

  20. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

    I keep asking this as I'm confused but would like some more opinions

    Havertz to James with FT or save and do Ben Davies to Saiss next week? (other move will be Auba to KDB)

  21. Strchld

    First I had a plan WC GW3 (last year did same and OR 4k) but because of covid and possible coming postponed games I didn't do it. Had Leno, James and Justin so this cost me a lots points.

    Now anyway Im thinking to hit WC GW3 to get Wolves players in and get rid Soton players.

    Anyone else on same boat? Build a long term team but probably going to hit WC GW3.

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Would save WC for later stages - loads of double GWs

    Any chance the stupid phone icon thing can be moved to the right of the screen from the left? It keeps ending up in the "post comment" box and if you accidentally touch it you lose everything you have just typed out and it triggers an urge to kill. Thanks 🙂

    Alli owners holding or selling?

    1. Bleh
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Thinking of holding now as I missed the drop last night.

  24. Zim0

    Fek why didn't gabriel rise again either. It would have been so much easier to assume manchester players are price lockedd

  25. Zim0
    • 2 Years

    Does thiago take set pieces? Afraid he'll steal some from Robertson and trent

  26. Klopp it

    I need a long term playing 4.0 defender

    1. Sloths
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Don't we all 😛

    2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I need Jennifer Lawrence to sit on my face, but that ain't happening either.

        You just won the ffs comments section.

  27. Brosstan

    Might have to wc to get Bale into the team. Essential!

    1. JustSomeGuy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I'd advise a nice walk outside for a while to clear your head.

  28. checkit_j
    • 1 Year

    I took a - 4 but I think I'm G2G?

    Steer
    Taa Dier Justin
    Salah Auba(c) James Asm
    Werner Martial Mitro

    (McC, Biss, Kwp, Mitchell)

  29. gers23
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Kane to Martial or save the transfer? Leaning towards making it

    1. JustSomeGuy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Makes sense, although Jose has said Kane will play every match, although not 90 mins each game so looks set to play a poor Southampton side.

  30. Sergeant Garcia
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Had a very good GW1, but still I think there's smth to do about my team:

    Ramsdale (Steer)
    TAA - James - Justin (KWP, Mitchell)
    Salah - Willian - Son - Havertz (Soucek)
    Werner - Wilson (Rodrigo)

    I have 1.0M ITB, so these are my options:
    A) Havertz > Rashford
    B) Son & Havertz > Fernandes & Rodriguez (-4)
    C) Roll the transfer
