26 Dec 19 11:50 Bought Blair Seow from Eternal for $306,983

17. Blair Seow Australia This player is a member of the national squad

29 years old | 65,203 rating | $18,608 wage | Right hand batsman | Right arm Finger spin | Accumulator

exceptional experience | capable form | rested fatigue | reasonable captaincy
Batting exceptional Endurance world class Fielding spectacular
Bowling dreadful Technique exceptional Training Batting
Keeping poor Power world class

A bit surprised to see this lad in the Nat squad to be honest as the wage doesn't indicate he is much past base for bat and tech. Happy to have him for that price though. Gives us some batting depth which we sorely need with so many guys in his age bracket already in the squad.
There is no substitute for experience. Though luck can help - just ask Bongo.

Not it bad. Should be close to a batting pop and half way in tech with that wage

Was very happy with this wheeling and dealing. Got him for 6k and turned him into a 206k player in the space of a month. :clap
I can't remember his skills exactly but I think they were exceptional in the primaries.

@knights123 Ahh, well done. Beautifully timed sale obviously.

With what is on the market and people scrambling to buy it truly is a sellers paradise right now. I could make an absolute fortune with my Main as I don't need a lot of quality to get through this division and the next after a nation move. But I would never be able to get as good again for that money. I've been looking for a half decent 25 or younger FM or F for a few months. Zip. Incredible.

I had to pay nearly 300k for this guy.

07. Cooper McIvor Australia allrounder

21 years old | 43,146 rating | $4,888 wage | Right hand batsman | Right arm Fast medium | Skilled (Batting), Finisher

capable experience | capable form | revived fatigue | reliable captaincy
Batting reliable Endurance capable Fielding reasonable
Bowling accomplished Technique accomplished Training Fielding
Keeping dreadful Power average

2 seasons ago he would have cost 40-60k. 100k at most, even with the talents. No way he is worth that coin at all but when the market is that dead, and you desperately need a seamer, then you take what is available. I'll use him for 3 seasons and probably get 10k when I need to upgrade. :roll:

I got a 3x profit on Ganga so it's a matter of training him well and improving his experience.

Yeh, 100% with you on that. I think the influx of prize money has made it very easy to sell right now, but much harder to find bargains. I've also changed countries and I've been looking to find some cheaper players before clearing out my existing squad and making some money but finding it hard to find any decently priced cheap players.

Outstanding Bat and only Accomplished Fielding at 24yo I would say overs but there really isn’t that much in the market
