England player hold.



  • Over the last few weeks I've been structuring my port around the Euros. I've a few nice picks so far I am happy with. I'm struggling with my choice for an England hold though. If I could afford it I'd hold all three but alas....
    Sterling, Kane and Rashford.
    Sterlings price and Kanes ankle has me siding with Rashford who is flying.
    If you had to go for one England player all things considered...thoughts??



  • @Julian-Noble Its a good day of games to monitor all 3, Utd derby perfect to watch Sterling and Rashford in action, see who steps up, Rashford seems the most in form at the moment, but he is a bit hit and miss sometimes, a bit sulky when it doesn't go his way. Kane and Sterling are a bit more consistent, minus Kanes injury niggles. tough choice that one! be interesting to see others thoughts.



  • I own an equal number of shares of all 3, but purchased a while ago. If I was to top up any at the moment I think it would be Rashford. He’s significantly cheaper than the other two and a good few years younger. He’s probably the riskiest of options as he looks incredible some games and then doesn’t do anything for weeks. If him and United found some form though his price would shoot up, mind you that’s a big if! I do think/hope he will have a good tournament for England though!

    Up until recently I always saw Kane and Sterling as two of the safest holds on the index. However Kane’s price has risen significantly since Jose took over, yet we don’t know how that’s going to play out, plus there is the ankle issues. Then Sterling is obviously class, but at £7 when Man City aren’t at their best makes me a little unsure.



  • @Ole-ole just to add, when I bought all 3 about 6 months ago rashford was the most expensive by about £0.30. Interesting how things change!



  • @scfc That's interesting, In a way it shows that FI is working exactly as it should, as much as I hate to admit it Utd have been poor for a while now, so I guess a lot wont have too much confidence in Rashford,makes sense that Sterling is what he is considering he had a great season last year and City got off to similar start early into this one, Kane seems to be Mr steady, so I can see why investors would hold him long term, like you say Euros, hes captain so one of the only certainties in the team.



  • Hold all three...

    Rashford is maybe the best value. Youngest, should be ascending and most importantly is lead forward for the most media friendly team on the index.



  • @Ole-ole I had a bit of a mare then, meant to reply to @Julian-Noble but thanks for carrying on the convo.

    Yea it makes sense looking back retrospectively and shows FI working well. Just interesting how at the time I was equally as happy to buy rashford despite him being more expensive. Whereas now it’s the same debate yet he’s a lot cheaper.

    Good point about today being a great day to make the comparison, I’ll revisit this thread after the Manchester derby!



  • It's a long way to go until the euros in regards to being on FI. For an England hold based on those 3 forwards I would probably go for sterling. Pricey atm but if January was as good as last year more and more people will join and the main guys like sterling may rise. So by the euros sterlings price could be much higher you just never know. But if you are looking for any England player I would look into the midfield options. Lots to choose from and much cheaper than the forwards.



  • @C-Money Lots to choose from is part of the problem though. I’d really struggle to predict what the midfield will be at the euros, tough one to call.



  • Rashford for me, main reason is he is a pb and media friendly and on top form



  • Kane for me, goals, captain, injury all MB gold



  • Rashford is the best value IMO, proven for dividends and has the most cap app growth potential, baffling how Sterling is the costliest of the three considering he's won the fewest dividends.



  • @scfc that's true but there's a lot of time between now and the euros injuries will play a huge part of who will be there along with form. If you pick someone like barkley (I do not hold) for example and he doesn't go to the euros or have a gut feeling he won't but hes risen and played well you can just sell jump off and move onto someone like mount or maddison etc... To pick someone now for the euros is pretty tough. Outside punt for the euros Chris smalling!!!



  • Thanks for all the advice. I'm sticking with my gut and Rashford. United most likely to build a team around him. Cap app, MB, PB hopefully.



  • @Julian-Noble this is looking like a good decision currently!



  • @scfc

    Just hold for second mate!!
    6months ago Rashford was the most expensive by 30p... 🤔 Are you sure about it hmm??

    Yes, platform has changed a lot's and going in good direction but it's very easy way to check that so pls stop talking not true!!

  • @Mundek Jeez mate, settle down. It would be a weird lie to have made up when we’re talking about something retrospectively that shouldn’t really impact anyone in this threads decision making. I bought all 3 between 6 - 8 months ago, surprisingly not all at one point in time. Average cost of each... Kane £3.75, Sterling £3.63 and rashford £4.15. I went with 30p as an estimate. Feel free to spend as much time as you like disproving that though but I’d recommend doing something else with your saturday evening



  • @scfc 😂



  • @Julian-Noble Rashford for the reasons you mentioned plus has more room to grow football wise and index wise. But I hold all 3.
