Spotting value in the Player Market

The user hanhi recently asked this question in the English football forum: Do you ever buy players with the intention of only developing them into sale products? Do you buy players to use them (mainly) just as financial investments? What are your best investments, how much profit have you made with buying a single player and selling him ahead? Users like senile_old_men, navai, sirchesmiller, tosspot and many others have replied with their stories. Well worth reading!

Having an eye for a good bargain is one of the things that can make you succeed as Manager. Did you ever pick up a recent graduate, dirt cheap, because of alluring unmaxings that screamed "develop me!", and discovered that behind those 4's and 5's, a world class player was waiting to be unveiled? Or have you ever taken a punt on a player whose training history has not been shared, to find out that he's completely unmaxed? (Probably sold by a relatively new Manager who didn't realize the full value of the player.)

An ability to spot talent has always been important in ManagerZone. But these days you'll get more value out of this particular management task, if you're good at it. After season break in particular, many clubs get rid of unwanted talent, generating a huge pool of Youth players for you to gaze your eyes at. Because of this surplus of objects, relative to bidders, it's possible to get a good deal on a player. But really, this goes on for the entire duration of the season and you can always find bargains if you're prepared to spend the time. Lots of experience searching for players in the market is the key to evolving this skill.

In the "old days", training history wasn't displayed to anyone but the owner of a player and you never knew about maxings until after your purchase. That made the Transfer Market a place for wild punts, which generally drove down the prices. Those few lucky ones who got exactly what they were hoping for, got great value for money, just as often, however, Managers would walk away not sure they got exactly what they paid for.

Nowadays, as long as the seller have shared a players history, you know exactly what you get before buying. You can make extensive research into the players history, and figure out things like maxings, training speed, player talent (if he's been sent to Youth Camp, that is), original ball/puck count, and whether he's close to achieving his next skill balls/pucks. Prices are higher, but there's lots of room for savvy, hard working Managers to pick up talented players and either incorporate them into their own team, or sell them later with a profit.

And the various Youth Leagues and Cups ensure that you get maximum value for your player while he's still young, even if you cannot use him for your senior team.

Many Managers seem to be of the opinion that playing the Market is always a calculated risk, and can bite you as well as reward you. But we would argue there is money there to be gained for those who put down the effort. Good luck player hunting!

Mad about ManagerZone

We know that most Managers on MZ are madly devoted to their clubs, but even we are sometimes surprised by the level of attachment displayed by some of our members... A few days ago this thread was started by biggsi in the Swedish football forum, prompting his fellow managers to fill in this sentence based on their own experience:

"You know you have played MZ too much when..."

The thread has since spawned a large selection of amusing, slightly mad confessions and we thought we would share some of them with you (although, and we cannot stress this enough, we do not actually recommend trying any of this at home...).

...when you set your alarm clock to 04:14 to bid for a player (biggsi)

...when you check your players 10 times per day and dream about their future! (muskali)

... when an article is published that says you have made 4319 forum posts in the last year... (bassi94)

...when your team is older than some managers in ManagerZone. (bennvar)

...when you have been member on MZ about a third of your life. (mwickholm)

...when you've failed an exam but been promoted to a higher division :) (ninety)

...when your girlfriend breaks up with you because you made a bid on a player on her birthday, and you're in a restaurant. (frecco)

...when you wake up 2 hours before the alarm clock is due to go off, and you decide to check the training reports before falling back asleep. (wurzag)

...when you are a Club Member until 2017-03. (junhager)

...when your boss at work wants to see you in his office, and asks about "that green page". (t_89)

...when you dream about MZ (mr_ferguson)

...when you try to talk about ManagerZone with friends who never played the game. (lulun)
