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.

    Would Thiago decrease trent and ronbo’s attacking returns? Considering he may now take some set pieces, and the channels may now be more central rather than the wings. What do you guys think?

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Nobody knows. We have to watch him play first.

    2. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Increase

    3. Bullet Eder
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I think he'll improve them personally, he'll keep feeding them the ball no trouble at all. Don't think he'll take set pieces off them either.

    4. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years

      If he leads to Liv scoring more goals then TAA and Robbo will get more. Why neutralise 2 of your best assets for the sake of one.

    5. stat sifter 888888
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Will definitely have an effect. I would guess that it could affect TAA's playing style more than Robbo's.

        1. Zim0

          How so? Negatively or positively?

    6. Seanigula
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Play Ayling vs Fulham or
      Egan at Villa?

      1. Hy liverpool
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        That boring answer - - >When would you play Ayling if not vs Fulham

        1. Seanigula
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          When I don’t have 3 playing defenders

      2. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Egan

        Thanks

    7. antoinehude
      • 4 Years

      A) Pickford / Van Dijk
      B) McCarthy / Robertson

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        B?

    8. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      You just know Ings is going to explode with a hattie now that 221K people (and counting) have sold him this GW....

      Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are playing!

      (Disclaimer: I am 99.9% selling him for Martial this week 😆 )

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Don't worry Don, it will be Che putting 3 past Lloris so you are ok.

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          I like that more but still hate it as I still have Ben (it’s a trap!) Davies

      2. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Soton seemed quite flat, don’t think 2 up top works and they need more industry in midfield.

        Ings as a lone striker I like, in a front 2 not so keen

        1. tokara
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          I agree w u but overall the team lost steam and fitness, i cant wait to sell him for Jim next gw

        2. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          I agree mate. I love Ings but don’t think this is the time to hold and hope.

      3. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        More likely he gets benched for Obafemi

    9. Dybala10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Didn't realise Alli was dropping in price, but would you take a -4 to switch to James Rodriguez?

      Not ideal but if he only plays 45 mins opening game and linked in a swap deal with Bale, it seems an obvious mistake to fix ASAP.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Dropped. He's down 0.1m already.

      2. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        yes

      3. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Yes

      4. Bleh
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        As I’ve still got him, may keep as a punt this gameweek against a dodgy Saints defence and shift out next week.

      5. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I got rid, still think he does play this weekend but it's too murky and I avoided the .1 drop which he simply isn't worth

      6. Shineonme
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        yes

      7. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I realised this late last night and got rid of him for Doucoure for free

    10. hewittj1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Sterling v KDB??

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Kun 😛

      2. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I'm feeling Kunish too. Let's see what happens this weekend.
        Raz of those two.

        1. Respect My Authoritah
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          He's not nailed and may not even be first choice

    11. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Those full backs, Thiago in MF, good luck to non Salah owners

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        And non Mane owners? 😀

        1. Berbs
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          He isn't Salah

      2. Silent Friend
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        No CS anymore? All of attack

        1. Berbs
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          They'll improve defensively for sure, Matip probably comes back in this week

      3. Nanoelektronicar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        What is the ETA on Thiago? Villa or Everton?

        1. Berbs
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Medical today acc to Maddock

          Probably benched vs Arsenal and then starts shortly after

          1. Nanoelektronicar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            I like that, thanks.

    12. Klopp it
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Best 6.0 midfielder is Milivojevic a good option

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Look at 5.5s instead.

        1. Klopp it
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          ???

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Sorry, I thought it was a question.

      2. stat sifter 888888
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Milivojevic definitely not imo. Better value at 5.5 or even 5.0.

      3. riot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Gone for a no-Chelsea and (temporarily) no-Trent 4-4-2 WC team.

        Arguably a bit of a waste as I already had no Chelsea and Fernandes on the bench, and I'm keeping Salah, but I love those Everton and Wolves assets. I also knee-jerked in Reece James on Monday which was ill-advised and I regret it heavily. Without that I don't think I'd be WCing. That said, I think jumping in on Manchester assets early will could be rewarded. Thoughts? I'm pretty settled apart from Laporte or Digne, more curious if anyone is going a similar route.

        Leno | 4.5
        Digne | Shaw | Saiss | Coady | Lewis
        Salah | Fernandes | Aubameyang | Rodriguez | 4.5
        Wilson | Richarlison | 4.5

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Looking good. Shaw to Lindelol, Alex Telles rumours.

          1. riot
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Thanks for that. Shame the window is open until October

        2. goblin140
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Like the Leno pick, best choice on WC imo

        3. stat sifter 888888
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Not a huge fan of Leno and Everton double-up in attack is excessive if WBA play 5 at the back again but otherwise very good team.

        4. CroatianHammer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Clyne to Palace... if he does sign I have to imagine he plays 27 games easily.

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Ferguson train derailed.

            1. CroatianHammer
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              There are definitely other cheap defenders available. That Leeds fellow, Stroopwaffel, Struklj, whatever his name is. I have him. Did well even shipping 4 goals against Next Year is our Year FC.

        5. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          KdB + Rodriguez
          Sterling + Havertz

          Longer term preference? I know Havertz hasn't looked great but those fixtures are so good from 3-5.

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            KDB and Rod

          2. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Everton fixtures not too shabby either.

          3. Inazuma X1
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Sterling + HotRod

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Don't discount Havertz. He might explode next week and then everyone will be doing JRod to Havertz..

        6. Poison Apple
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Che Adams to Martial (-4)

          Yay or Nay

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Aye

          2. Inazuma X1
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Yes

          3. Soto Ayam
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 6 days ago

            No

            • 5 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Which is the other transfer u did?

          5. stat sifter 888888
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Very different price points but obvsly Martial is a better pick.

          6. Rhodes your boat
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            A) havertz to rashford
            B) ings to martial

            Would rather have martial but rather lose havertz so a tough one!

            1. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              Better to get rid of players who aren't performing than to look at who you want and deciding who to lose.

            2. Poison Apple
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              prefer martial to rash. Not to mention u can always ship out havertz to alot of options, within chelsea, to everton ones or other cheaper alternatives

            3. Inazuma X1
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              A

              • 1 Year
              1 month, 6 days ago

              I'd give Havertz more time personally. Everyone's going on about Rashford but he's looked awful and depressed lately.... That said so did Salah. :p

          7. jose1
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            A. 3-5-2 with Hamez

            Or

            B. 3-4-3 with Richo ?

            On a WC obviously... thanks

              Very good.
              Harrison can't play against City, which is coming up soon, but I guess you might not have started him anyway for that. Klitch on pens I think.

                Cheers mate, yeah I heard Klich is on pens just not my mate who’s a Leeds fan confirmed it so I think with that he’s gotta be the best option and nah I wouldn’t play against City i would be playing Podence that week, the plan for those two is to play the one with the best fixture

              You are missing a spot for KDB or Sterling unless you plan to upgrade Bruno to them

                Yeah still juggling the ideas to accommodate them mate, the 0.5 in the bank and the Aubameyang slot is initially to be able to accommodate one of them easily, but I can tweak the team a little bit downgrading a couple of players and upgrade Colombian J-Rod

                  Downgrading TAA would be the boldest move if you want to accommodate KdB (from James). I know, it won't be enough, but almost there. You could on top downgrade Wilson to cheaper forward and rotate with Podence (who - by the way - has great fixtures after MCI). Brewster, if he gets to West Brom?

                    Ooooh now that is seriously bold mate!! Haha but just as seriously intriguing!! Will have a jiggle with that one now!! Cheers for that! Would be quite scary not to own TAA tho, yeah I like Podence a lot mate I wanted him in my team from the start but the first two fixtures and rotation out my off, but now I’m definitely wanting him and at that price it means like you say you can rotate him, that’s my initial plan to do so with Harrison or Klich, whichever I end up going for.

                Thankyou mate, yeah I do like him a lot,just Klich with pens I seem to be leaning to because of that but I think that decision could change by deadline

                That would be the fun option - think Martial could do well. But we haven't see Utd yet, and Ings could bite me. Tough!

            Werner > Martial enables Vinagre > Digne, but it would be for a hit.

              No way! Werner could do well against Liverpool's high line and he has West Brom after that. Plus half the game owns him.

                Cheers mate.

                I know it's risky. I will probably look to get him back in 2-3 weeks and downgrade one of the 5 big hitters.

              No Pool full back, no Digne, no Everton mid or attacker. Not sure on doubling up Man U.
              Foden not nailed also

                • 8 Years

                Also Justin will be replaced by Peireira once he comes back from injury

                Imagine if someone said before the season that by GW2 'no Digne' would be a legit thing to say on an RMT 😀

              Doubling up on Villa keepers really limits your options for their players elsewhere. New signings are coming in and they could offer really value in the coming weeks with some favourable fixtures

              1. CrouchDown
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 6 days ago

                I have Martinez as a an ARS player so that shouldn't be a problem I don't think.

                Who are they looking at signing? Do you think Watkins is a good option?

            5. Chandler Bing
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              Insanely similar to what I've built other than Rashford and Werner instead of Bruno and Jimenez. I also don't have Foden tho.

              How confident are you about Coleman? I heard he could be benched anytime soon.

              1. CrouchDown
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 6 days ago

                Yeah Foden is definitely risky, who did you go for in that price bracket?

                I think Coleman will be okay personally. Jonjoe is back but Coleman is captain and played well last week. Shaw is the obvious alternative.

            6. Fuddled FC
              • 8 Years

              not bad although potentially I wouldn't personally have Foden, Rashford, Coleman, Justin

                I remember Bale being listed as defender in early days. Was fun having him in my teams. He'll need few weeks to reach fitness. Will be interesting to see his FPL price, form and impact on Spurs.

                Is anyone else really confused?

                Remove Son or give him another chance?
                Worth taking a -4 hit to bring in Fernandes?
                Remove Werner and bring in Martial or worth keeping Werner for another week?
                Should we try and get rid of Bavies now?
                Just save and wait until next week to have 2 FTs and more flexibility?
                Load up on Everton players because they are looking real good?

                So many questions, its just easier to do nothing

                  1 month, 6 days ago

                  I try to temper it by reminding myself that it's just one GW.

                  Son is a proven FPL player, but just like every FPL player he's going to blank sometimes.

                  Werner isn't an FPL proven asset yet, but what do you do if you take him out and he scores in GW2 and Martial blanks?

                  Personally, I think 1 week is far too small a sample size to be basing transfer decisions on, especially ones involving players with a history of good FPL scores.

                  But, ultimately, its your team so you have to go with what you feel is best.

                  1. Djemba-Djemba
                    • 5 Years
                    1 month, 6 days ago

                    thats the logical approach, the issue is the possibilities of price changes. The minute Martial or B. Fernandes get a price change it becomes so much more difficult to get them in your team

                    No I can actually field taa/Davies/Ayling which is solid in a 343

                    But going forward and for value loss

                  Yes imo - value is important in the beginning

                  It would grind my gears, put probably.

                A) Dallas + Grealish
                B) Doherty + Podence

                Thanks

                  B - Doherty will be essential after Reguilon signing
