Friday 24th August - IPO Preview



  • @NewUser164890 Personally never tried, but I could not see any other way of doing it.



  • @NewUser164890 The players drop into the squad section some time during their IPO window, usually the screen flashes green and then when you search for them they will come up.

    However as mentioned above, IPOs are quite crazy, I often find my computer freezes and I have to watch as the player flies above their IPO price before I can even locate them let alone buy them.

    So, friendly words of advice;

    1. Have a maximum price you're willing to pay
    2. Stick to the maximum price you're willing to pay :-D
    3. If you can then buy maximum (100) - in the time it takes to type in 10 etc. the price will have jumped more.
    4. Assuming following rule 3, make sure you have more than enough to buy the player, ie. if you have £100 and hit buy max, if the player goes to £1.01 whilst it's processing you'll obviously get the warning that you have insufficient balance and lose even more time going back and typing 90 etc.
    5. Be aware you can not instant sell an IPO for several days
    6. Many IPOs drop once the IS becomes available so it's often possible to pick up a long-term hold at a much lower price after a few days.

    Good luck!



  • @AT10 Thanks for the device, very helpful



  • Another good review. I’d love a few Davies but after my last couple tries and an even bigger user base, I’m almost certain he’ll be £2+ before I even get close! With that says hopefully he’ll drop a bit and I can get a few cheaper. I doubt it though. Surprised at the prices of some of them too!



  • @FranklynMary Do you mean Tom Davies?



  • @HappyLarry59855 Alphonso Davies maybe?!!



  • Have to admit that fact that the arsenal lad that’s just IPO’D has went to 2.30 oddalready is mental 😂



  • It is ridiculous, he is a good player but no way he wins any dividends and he isn't even a guaranteed starter.



  • @Chris95
    As I said yesterday it's the first time I have looked at IPOs and tried, as I'm sure everyone has before to come up with a strategy but failed miserably lol 😀

    I do have a question related to this burning away as a result but Agatello specifically stated in the OP not to turn the thread into a moanfest after the event so out of respect I will save it just in case it encourages people to go in that direction.

    Thanks again @Agatello for all your help yesterday, as Vinnie would say, "It's bin emotional." 😄



  • New to the ipo, this is the first ones since I've joined I think. I kept refreshing it for the Celtic player today, it didn't come up for ages and finally when it did around 10:30 it was up to £1:25 from 80p already! I hope it doesn't happen like that later because there was a player I wanted to go for but I fear it will. I'm thinking I might be better off waiting for the price to settle before investing. And advice is appreciated



  • @NewUser165544
    Don’t get me wrong I defo see the value in Odsonne Edouard because even as a Celtic fan I can see much more potential in him than dembele, but the arsenal one just isn’t right 😂😂



  • @NewUser159470 If you haven't got a "bidding bot" you are wasting your time trying for the IPO price; I refreshed him as soon as he appeared & he was over £1.20 (impossible for human bidding) but on the brightside he is still a bargain @ 1.30 so I am happy enough with the price.

    2.52 now, over 20p more than Kante....starts every week, new manger, tactics. What on do people expect.



  • @NewUser60527 lol you count 2 games as 'starts every week'?

    I love him as a player but would not be surprised if he finds himself on the bench as soon as Torreira is fit and if Ramsey signs a contract

    Kante



  • @NewUser159387 unfortunate I'm at work so I'm on my iPhone!



  • Oh sorry I thought you meant Dozi, yeah I agree Kante is a good comparison player which I would say puts him at a fair value of his IPO price of around half Kante?

    Not moaning by the way just discussing value :-)



  • Kante at 2.25 must be value seeing as it looks like he is getting a bit more forward under Sarri.

    This arsenal player is a bench warm with a few bits and pieces here and there and his prices is ridiculous, expect him to be instant sold though next week and a lot of people burned.



  • The greatest ever IPO is going to hit the market this afternoon......

    Gianluigi Buffon at £1

    What a bargain.... compared to the likes of Ronaldo, Kane and Salah, who are all around the £10 mark.

    I reckon this Buffon kid could be a PB machine over the next 4-5 years.

    I'm going to try to buy 10,000 Buffon if my computer will let me.

    Honestly mate I can categorically state that it IS possible to buy at cheap prices using standard tools and methods and I promise you that however as I'm sure you can imagine no-one is going to willingly give up their methods as it simply increases competition. I suppose I could sell my soul to the devil haha
