Resurrecting a dead thread, I know, I know, but I wanted to get this down before I forgot it.
I find pricing the market to be tricky, even for someone who has played this game for a while (and bought and sold a few handfuls of players). Therefore, a little added transparency in the market could be useful for both new and old managers.
It would be useful for understanding the current market for there to be a report of what the bid amounts were that made it to negotiations when a player sells. Right now, you can see the amount a player sold for either on their player page or for any player that has sold recently either to or from your league via the Transfer main page. It would be very useful to see on that transfer main page what the other bid amounts were (and, potentially, total # of bids) for completed sales so you could see:
A) how high bids need to be to get to negotiations for certain types of players (e.g., how much do high potential youth GKs go for? what about aging DFs?, etc.),
B) when a manager overbid for a player (i.e., bid 2 was substantially less or non-existent) - essentially, how much more did I bid than I needed to for a player?, and
C) when players are priced well and they get a few bids that may be higher than would be expected for a player of their type (does it help to price a high potential player low to get more interest in them or to price them high and just get a couple of bids?)
This would just involve adding a couple of columns to the table that's in there already. If space is a concern, the bids could be in millions to a decimal (e.g., 1.2m) and the date column could be shortened to just 'day' with the day of the season used instead of the date (would make more sense for those of us who have the season change in the middle of a day due to where we live). But that's getting into the weeds...
Overall, I think this would assist in helping new and old players in making better use of their funds and have players sell for more consistent prices.
Just my 2 cents
