I like the concept but...What is the value of purchasing the shares in players. How would we get a payoff. If I bought a % of Ozil I would expect some kind of dividend to hold. Otherwise it has no value to keep and thus to buy in the first place.Maybe you could use a bitcoin/blockchain type setup to create unique "player cards" that have some kind of collectable value?

Every share is unique, I'm thinking every player only has a finite amount of shares (100? 1000?). That way we get the same mechanics as a stock exchange.

Swansea have only won five games across all competitions, and only two of those wins were at home. They've lost 7 of their 11 home games this season. We should be comfortably winning this game with a large margin at half-time.

How would you determine the stock (player) value? I mean what are the factors involved to compute this???

Just like a normal stock exchange, the cost of a share is whatever the seller can offload it for. Let's say Ozil is generally trading at £4 per share. He then scores a hat-trick, so you decide to sell one of your Ozil shares for £5 on the market. If someone buys it at £5, that's now the current trading cost of that share.

On the exchange overview, the current trading value per share is often an average of last X sold, to even out any outliers. But this share value is only really a guideline, you can sell your shares at any cost you want.

It doesn't really work well in small volume, which is why this idea would need 100s of traders to function properly. If there's only ten, the frequency of trading would be so low that share values would never be accurate enough to make sense. The more traders we have, the more accuracy we get in share value.

Bellerins worst day at the office - he'll learn a lot from this game. I get a feeling that Xhaka will always at times be slightly dim with his challenges.

I don't actually mind Xhaka getting cards and costing us penalties, I've been gagging for a player like this since the mid-2000s. As long as he makes up for it elsewhere on the pitch it's fine. The problem is that Wenger is going to try and change him into yet another inconsistent good boy, like he does with everyone else. No clue why he bought Xhaka, why buy a player with a style you don't like to begin with? Why not just buy a player you like? Professor is mental.

The most revolting thing was that Giroud made it clear that for him individual achievements are more important than team ones. 11v10 and he equalises in ample time to go and win the match. But nooo. . .let's go and show off our new goal celebration routine like a dimwit.

Not only that, but after the equaliser we clearly played for a draw.
