Footstock Market Movement Update: October
With four weeks of the new Premier League season gone and the league newcomers starting to settle in (or not), what has the impact been on the overall value of the top 30 players on the Footstock market?
The market as a whole has followed a similar pattern as the previous few months, with it largely remaining fairly stable but with some big fluctuations still being seen on players around tournaments and following uplifts/downturns in form.
For the top 30 specifically, we have seen another slight drop of around 3.50% compared to the figures in September, though this was largely related to only one or two players, as explained further below.
There was not a huge amount of movement within the top two categories after the October changes, with only one switch between Legendary and Epic and another four between Epic and Rare.
An opening day hat-trick for Mo Salah has propelled him back up to the Legendary category, while a more modest start to the season has resulted in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang moving in the opposite direction, down to Epic.
The Epic/Rare categories have seen the below players trade place:
Moved up: Grealish, Bowen, Traore and Leno
Moved down: Jota, Shaw, Doherty and Pereira
I’ve again had a look at the three different card prices available for the top 30 players on the market to see what changes there have been compared to previous months.
N.B. with the market being a lot more fluid and the prices shifting on an hourly basis, sometimes significantly, the prices below are only as a guide to give an indication of the change in the value of the top 30 as a whole.

Top 30 Totals & Averages Monthly Comparison
We’ve seen a reduction in prices of the top 30 of between 2.74–3.76% compared to September, though as touched on last month, with prices varying hour by hour, the figure could have been different if they had been recorded at a different time of day.
Whereas the September market update highlighted the fact that the addition of Timo Werner had helped to pull the average up, after an underwhelming start to his Premier League career, it’s his drop in price from an average of £92.65 to £45.90 that has led to the overall fall in the top 30.
Current Trading Opportunities
As usual, I’ve also taken a look at the top 5 options of the current Epic and Legendary cards when it comes to trading.
With just one trade of each of the above five players at the shown prices, you would make £28.45 in profit. Keeping an eye on the spreads between the buy/sell price is a great way of generating ongoing returns through trading.
We’ve already seen a range of new additions and amendments to the platform over the last month or so and with a lot more already in the pipeline to be released in the short term, there’s a lot to be excited about for the rest of the season!
