The high of the race has been overtaken by one of the Hardmoors family passing away Sunday morning with what on the face of it, not race related. Social media is pointing the reason a certain way, but nothing has been confirmed if it is.
Fucking gutted is an understatement as I was talking to the fella on Saturday at the checkpoint he dropped out, and apart from feeling a little down for having to quit he was his usual smiling self.
I watched a few of the live parliament debates with old Theresa versus Corbyn a few months ago.. its ridiculous the way they carry on, it's like room full of screaming toddlers, I had to switch it off, very uncivilised, there is nothing worse than people continuously talking over one another... I did find the speaker guy amusing though, wonder how many times a day he says order 😆
@CleanShirtTrader Depends on the player but I've always been 'long' term so been very patient with red but if i see no way of it coming back i'll eventually get out and flip them for something i believe in... For example i traded Juan Quintero recently who hardly moved in the six months i've held him simply due to the fact any potential move to Europe has not yet materialised....
David Neres for example i'm currently 52p down and have held since around March (at his height) when i hoped he would be one of those getting a summer move... With Neres though he's still only 22 and is likely to play UCL football this season so could attract more interest by the end of the campaign? With that in mind i can be more patient with him and not worry about the short fall so much in the hope his price will get back to what it was plus more with not only his own growth but through the inevitable continued growth of FI!!!
I do think though holding might not always be the best way, like you i'm probably too stubborn to often flip at a loss but sometimes selling a falling priced player for one rising in the other direction just as fast can be very profitable in the end!!
Oh don't you worry sir, your firends will have their turn, they will suddenly be asked when they least expect it...probably when a cheap young english striker suddenly appears in the prem and bangs a double hattrick in and they go to buy quick to beat the masses, it's the opportunity they have been waiting and cash piling for months, but then their account is blocked, they have to send their finger tips in the post to FI and get all their ancestors birth certificates and a newspaper from the day they were born, this takes 6 years and in the meantime that striker, who was a nobody, now plays for Utd and England and won the world cup.
