Musa Barrow to win the Ballon d'Or before being IPO'd
I've ost count of the number of emails I've sent FI asking them to IPO him. By the time they do, he'll be a household name. It is a bit disappointing when you find a player really early on in their career but then they don't get IPOd until 9 months later when they've appeared on everyone's radar. I wonder if it suits FI more to have a scramble for players when they get IPOd, rather than FI releasing them early and then the growth being gradual? They could make life easier for themselves by having a template online for traders to fill in and submit with all the basic info, and maybe a free text box for a justification. Surely this would save them a bit of the legwork and speed the process up?
Anyway don't bother investing in Barrow, he's not all that good, in fact he's a bit of a donkey...I'd steer well clear...
You make a top point. If you had named the thread something along the lines of "Requesting IPOs From FI" I think you'd create a lot of chat about something that would help us as "customers" and FI to provide a better service that also encourages us to invest more.
Looks like you found a rough diamond.
Yep. I've sent a few emails about a few that should have been added many months ago. I do wonder what their criteria is for adding a player. Obviously they had to add WC squad players, which totally blew up their usual criteria (whatever that is) as complete nobodys were added.
I would certainly argue it is in FI interests for players to be IPO'd once they have a credible following
