I'm in Italy at the moment so wouldn't have been able to trade either way so can see this from a natural point of view.
Releasing the IPOs at 1am seems odd for me. If this is a way of avoiding a system crash then I would rather they just fix the system issues!
I can see why people are upset in feeling like they have missed out. There is no skill involved in a 1am player release but good on the players that spotted the IPOs and got on early. Exactly the right thing to do in the circumstances. Fair play to @Pagey74 for posting. Sure that helped a few people get on.
I mention my view on how to improve IPOs each time there is an issue like this. Release them and allow people to buy a fixed number per day for the first 5/7 days (Maybe 100 per day). With no instant sell for 1 week. This will give everyone the opportunity to have at least the smallest slice of the pie if they want to. I know it will still mean people will get on before others but so be it.
This must be an easy function for FI go create and would be easily adjustable if needed.
I'm in now. Watched a couple of skills videos on YouTube. He's good. But I've only bought 100. Sold a few Mbappe to get on. Almada is still playing in his local league. There's the fear he could end up like the "Turkish Messi", Omur, who still plies his trade in Turkey.
@MickTurbo today I had lunch with my accountant. Fortified with the magic amber liquid I released the albatross around my neck that was Brewster. The money was used to OCD proof my portfolio. Lovely round numbers with players on the rise, all from European leagues. We wait and see.
@Gregolocky I think the sale of Brandt has clearly had an effect on BL so far. I suspected Havertz would have more attention as a result of his form last season as well and expected them to dip in form...
At least you didn't go for Marcus Berg but those picking Isak made the right choice!!!
TBF i've got really lucky.. Brought a few Eriksen shares on the 27th Aug hoping he might get a bit of media buzz around his transfer saga and has since scored 3 goals with 1 assist won a match day dividend, media dividend and rose 22p!!!! time to cash out??
Lys Mousset surely has growth in him from 45p. I'm a Sheff Utd fan so am quite well placed. He cost up to £9.5m and we don't spend money willy nilly. Wilder will have a lot of belief in him and will commit to maximising our investment. He's an excellent physical specimen. Very powerfully built and quick. Good feet. Rocket shot. Will undoubtedly start games and score goals this season. Not fully fit yet but came on and changed the game at Chelsea. Stagnated at Bournemouth behind Callum Wilson but he's still only 23.
