Port (bleeding badly)



  • @MickTurbo true - you’d still expect a player who has been falling for some time to get some sort of recovery from a hat-trick. During healthier times it would’ve been enough for him to get at least a 10p rise and hold it without the need to earn dividends.

    There are probably many better examples but even dividend winners are falling - Ronaldo winning PB yesterday and you can be sure it’s the first of many this season but doesn’t move off the back of a PB win - you can point to his age as a factor but he would normally get a small rise off the back of a PB win.

    It seems like more users are carrying out an exit strategy rather than an investment one - creates a very confusing platform for new users and a very frustrating one for existing users.



  • @Chris-J I've been here seven months and I am baffled confused and bemused to tell the truth this past 3-4 weeks.



  • @Chris-J yeh I completely agree with that. Only thing I will say is as a ronaldo holder I know that hes had a very reasonable rise recently so maybe a little bit of standing still is to be expected



  • In reference to Bernardo Silva, I agree with the people above about it proving he is not PB suitable. The fact that he scored a hat trick and did not win PB just confirmed my belief he is not a good FI hold. A great fantasy football pick but really, if he can't win on that day, he's rarely likely to. He is already overpriced and that hatrick and lower than expected PB score will have got sensible people reassessing their hold.



  • Neymar you fucking beauty... Wins star man on a treble day with one goal. I have Alberto too, stems today's losses at least ☺

    Good to see the solid dividend players doing the business in times of uncertainty. Shows there is money to be made if you're patient.



  • Shame about my bloody 500 Kolarov :( sums this week up.

    What makes it more impressive is that they were away to one of the better teams they will come up against - what sort of scores will he get when they are at home playing against the dross and racking up 4 /5 and 6 goals....

    He also nearly won last week after scoring the last minute winner then getting another before it was VAR'd.



  • Surely single match days need to be treble media days? That's before the conversation about a general raise in divs even begins.

    I'm looking nailed on for 2nd and 3rd place tonight 🤬🤬



  • @Advinculas-Index home to reims coming up on Wednesday, we might find out.



  • @MickTurbo I do hope so, completely agree with you. Players like Pogba, VVD and the like are tanking at a constant rate. I do think removing the 2 week Int break media fest has hit them hard and will continue to do so until divs are reviewed.



  • @Webbinho just look at forum sentiment, me included, I honestly think they've got a month to at the very very least, announce that something along these lines is in the pipe line, and with an implementation date



  • @MickTurbo Or what will happen in your opinion?



  • @TeamGB well quite a few forum users, me included, have said were giving it till the end of october and if things are still going the way they have for the last month up till now, were gone. Only a tiny proportion of traders are regular posters, so u have to wonder about everybody else. There will undoubtedly be many non forum users thinking the same. If thousands sell up and go over the next 2 months the drops will get bigger and other ppls thoughts might change. Most of us arent losing our bottle, were asking serious questions about the future of market behaviour. Sooner or later peoples bottle will start to be tested



  • Problem for me is I joined F1 because a mate was raving about it word of mouth Is massive for them to attract new users and even though I love it I’d be more inclined to tell a mate at min to not bother.



  • @therock I do think this is the problem, in a slight way at least anyway. With word of mouth about the Football Index spreading, and all the adverts you see on TV, people will want to hop on and try it. Just imagine the amount of people that have joined up since the marketing has been pushed to the level we are seeing, they are most likely gamblers with the short term mentality that match betting every weekend has, instead of the more long term mentality/thinking required for a platform like this.
    What most people on this thread/forum are concerned about (in my opinion) is how long will it take for newer users to figure out that chasing short term money and IPD isn't realistically sustainable. It will eventually burn a large hole in their wallet - which at current time of writing doesn't look like slowing down, with top 50/100/200 players dropping at an alarming rate.
    Haland is a perfect example, look how much he rose just from scoring a hattrick in the champions league, almost a quid. He plays in a non PB league and his price is over £3. I can imagine so many people that have hopped on at that price and not knowing what to do with him after they receive their money from IPD. If they sell, they're losing money from commission alone anyway even if it is to market cause he's so expensive.



  • I’d say within my group I’m 35 so not as many mates as the youths prob got 15 mates that gamble on footie more than say £20 a week 5 of us who gamble between 100–1000 only two are involved index and that’s what excited me when I joined. The chance for growth is massive but I really don’t wanna encourage them to join at min the questioning of drops would be never ending



  • @Woody I cannot give exact reason for that. But the market always has it's ups and downs. The marketing is better than ever before and I see a physical advert almost every day now.
    So the new starters will join meaning more healthier spread of users, meaning less reliance of smaller pool of big whales.
    With the media opening up to the whole index shortly. I would be surprised if there was no MB change. Although I would prefer a increased PB positioning payout overall.



  • @kaka8 I think you hit the nail on the head. Once these elements happen. We will see the top end players jump up again to that next level.



  • So I’ve been here 5 weeks and my plan all a long was to slowly build up a port of lower players (adding £100 a month after my initial £400 investment) whilst I generated enough cash to buy the likes of Pogba; who was around £7.10 when I joined.

    Had a sub £500 port which was doing ok for 5 weeks, and despite the doom and gloom I’ve been reading daily on these forums I still see value in the product; and if you consider this platform to be for trading then there will always be peaks and troughs.

    However with the current drop I’ve decided to take the gamble (who’d have thought it on a gambling website) and dropped 1k on him this morning; if in 12 months he’s dropped lower than midget limbo dancer I’ll be a few hundred quid out of pocket and learnt my lesson. But the other side of the coin.....

    I’ll add I’ve never been a gambler never spent a penny on betting on football but I know the pit falls so I’ve only used what I can afford the wife not to find out about.
