Flyers, Cards, Mugs....Damn anything we can fit a logo on.
Not just T-Shirts which are a cool FI official offering.
This is an important thread though.
We can do our part.
I have some experience, but to be honest I'm pushing another online product that gets me laid (did I just say that out loud...no shame maybe).
If I get bored of dating beautiful women then I might send my printer a link and throw a few options on to the forum.
Not stopping anyone else taking the initiative though.
I'd certainly throw £50-100 at marketing props and merch.
I'm surprised we haven't done this already.
In the past I've known London cabbies who've plastered their ride in decals - that shit really works and would be great for FI.
Any here ?
Personally, I don't mind if he stays at Madrid and gobbles up a few pinpoint crosses from a certain player who is currently a spud.
I hold both and the latter could become a PB beast at Real.
Straight swap for Isco, Asensio or Bale ?
What say you Spurs...
Avoid large holdings.
Initially go with fewer shares in a greater number of players.
You'll then be able to observe their performance, learn when and why players rise and fall in value. Hopefully without too many costly mistakes.
If you see players featuring in daily decrease lists, don't be afraid to buy - it's often the best time to do so.
Red cards, injuries rotation, all can be reasons for short term dips, with a very quick recovery once returning to starting teams.
Ask yourself...Why has this player dropped today ?
As @Schmitcattaxi suggested, be very wary of buying at the wrong time, players featuring on trends lists, highest risers. These may be at their peak and likely to dip after purchase.
I think that's the biggest mistake new investors may be making.
I think the best advice is....choose what you fancy, then try to be patient, monitor progress with a view to holding for 3 years as opposed to 3 days/weeks.
A minority will spike and merit an earlier sale and quick profit, however most players take time and rise slowly over periods of several months.
A common regret here is wishing we'd held players for longer.
I purchased Havertz at 90p
Mbappe at £4
100% profit seemed great.
I wish I'd held out for 500% on both my first purchases.
I've learned my lesson - I have players in my portfolio sitting nicely in the green, purchased in 2019.
Most will still be in my portfolio come 2020....and Euro 2020 ;)
For me there's only one profitable long term hold there and it's Goretzka.
I'm sure Bayern Munich have looked closely at all four and they apparently agree with me.
However in the cases of Fernandes and Bergwijn (regardless of transfers) they are going to rise for the Euro nations finals this summer.
Don't panic - they'll certainly offer a good ROI immediately prior to those games.
The gamble would be in waiting 'till kick off.
Both are on form, both look like starters in their national teams.
@NewUser181925 this is the thing. If you have the money now, surely it makes sense to buy.
A because there's the triple MB around them
B because unless you can only afford one share, the end split/price is the same.....3 shares at the same total price. I think this somehow gets overlooked.
buying now gives 3 futures that can earn PB/MB/IPD
your £38 now is going to get just as many shares now as on the 26th (value wise)
One of the ones I've been keeping my eye on is Valentin Rongier @1.11 currently (37p post SS). Has a PB average of 76 overall with him averaging nearly 100 since the new year. The captain in the middle of midfield for FC Nantes and came on live TV in France talking about a move away (mentioned Marseille but Lyon a likely destination). Was wanted by Claudio Ranieri as a replacement to Drinkwater in Leicester. Players like him, Savanier, Prcic, Basic in Ligue 1 who rack up high numbers in PB and are in the mix for a leg up in competition but don't get enough love.
