What birthday present do you want?

  • Can someone just detail what the divs amount for mb and pb were before the share split please

  • If I was in charge of dividends, I would keep the current div awards as they are numerically, but to do an indirect rise:

    • Scrap PB star player
    • Do treble MB on single match days (not double or treble though)
    • 1p for 2nd player in each PB category on double match days, 2p on treble match days (no 2nd player on single match days)
    • 1p bonus for any player's PB score over 300 (all days).

    (and absolutely no rises in IPDs, but maybe increase them to 45 days hold so there's more incentive for stability)

    This should effectively mean a decent rise in real terms in that many more players should get a chance of getting dividends, thus keeping people interested - it is certainly more motivational if people see a smaller amount more regularly than many days of winning nothing.

    It also should be quite sustainable for FI.

    actually … to sting all those arseholes who have withdrawn en masse predicting a bonus... id like a bonus... but for it to reward our current status. 5% cash back on port value at time of statement

    I like this idea a lot!! Maybe 4% is slightly more realistic and it is the 4th birthday after all...

  • IMO a divs increase is needed in the future. Div yields for premium players is now too low. The massive %increase in IPD at the share split has tipped the balance of FI, now attracting a lot more short term trading patterns. A PB/MB increase would encourage more long term holds, an increase in premium player prices which will help to stretch the market.

    I personally wouldn’t want a deposit bonus. Far too much opportunity for traders to get in and out, or even use the opportunity to sell off. Last couple of DBs have often resulted in a very sharp rise, then steady decline back to the initial prices before the DB.

    What id like - announce a pb increase for say late January.... allow a steady growth till that point, should also help limit the usual winter sell off.

  • @kristiang85 Very good idea, I like it!

  • 2p clean sheet IPD for goalkeepers

  • A blowjob out of the question?

  • @Dan-The-Man not sure Mr Cole would be willing to oblige but guess you could always ask.

  • @Hotspur It's not a present if you have to ask for it.

  • @Dan-The-Man you did ask though

  • @Hotspur

    God damn it. Between this and telling people what my wish was when blowing out the candles... It's like I never learn.

  • I suppose given we haven't had a market blackout notification, it's unlikely we'll be getting a div increase.

    If it's a deposit bonus, I am not buying in
