Jadon sancho



  • A lot of Sancho’s value comes from the anticipation of the inevitable transfer saga. I’ve held Sancho from £1.04 simply because I just know he’ll eventually be linked with a move back to England just for playing half decent. The same applies for Reiss Nelson at Hoffenheim and Ronaldo Vieira once he starts getting games for Sampdoria.

    When Sancho plays regularly and scores a few, and Man Utd’s chief scout is spotted in Dortmund, then absolutely no doubt the media will be talking up a £100m English teenager for weeks and months.

    Hype = future MB = price rise now. It’s fairly easy to predict on English youngsters, particularly those playing abroad. I don’t fully get why people are so dismissive of taking an early position on a future asset.



  • Im gambling on the fact that the £2 surge he has had over the space of 10 days leaves his current price exposed to a significant correction in the not too distant future as he seems to be over £1 higher than those you could argue fall into the same category.
    Namely Madison/Mount/Foden.

    only Time will tell



  • @playingcards1

    Don't over look Keanen Bennett's.
    He looks a great prospect too



  • @Comrade

    I don’t hold Bennetts but he absolutely falls into the same category.



  • @playingcards1

    So ask yourself (with a limited budget i.e. 99% of FI punters) would you rather have 1 Sancho or 5 Bennetts? Which will return the biggest gain over the medium term?

    If we can accept each players ability as given, then he can be a buy @£1, hold @£2-3 or sell @£5 irrespective of his future long term prospects. Pure unemotional trading instinct says sell Sancho & buy Bennett at current prices, even if Sancho were to double from here Bennett is still probably a better buy, because if he doubled to £2 he would probably still rate as a buy.



  • @NewUser159387

    Bennetts is with the Monchengladbach reserve team so I see better short term growth in Sancho, Nelson, and Vieira.

    Your point is valid (and people don’t think enough about opportunity cost) but one I think will be more applicable when Bennetts gets promoted to the first team squad.



  • i'll be honest i've never heard of Bennetts (until now) so comparing a Champions League playing soon to be England International making all sorts of headlines with an unproven Bundesliga Reserve player is like comparing Lionel Messi with Esteban Fuertes for me!!!!

    Not saying Bennetts might one day be good... But short term growth (3 weeks)??? Mid term growth (3 months)??? Even long term growth (ie 3 years) I would back Sancho all the way!!!



  • Bennett's has been injured and is working his way to back to fitness.
    Only back about 2 to 3 weeks.
    Was out for a few months





  • some info here too (imagine what you would have paid for this boy on FI back then)....

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/competitions/premier-league/3007301/Arsenal-buy-10m-Jeffers.html

    I would like to see him play before I invest as it's easier to make judgement.. No doubt he CAN go up in value as proved even with the worse players on FI but I would always rather invest in what i know and in who I think is playing well then taking a punt on yet another 'next best thing'!!!

    The only reason i've invested in Sancho is because when I watch him play at the highest level, I see enough quality in him to suggest that he'll go on to big things... I simply think the two players all be it same age similar potential, are simply at very different stages of their careers.

    It shouldn’t be long, he has only just come back from injury.

    To be fair the jeffers warning can also be applied to sancho. People who you would assume know far more about football than either of us watched him intensively and thought he was destined for the top otherwise they wouldnt have paid so much.



  • @mike778 no I totally agree, it can go for all players especially of a certain age... Not saying that there isn't money to be earned in these young boys on FI but my point is every young English talent coming through at a top club is not necessarily going to be the next best superstar either!!!

    Which is why i'm stating we sometimes overlook those that are doing the business for those that 'might one day' be doing it... I would rather put my money in a more consistent product than gamble it on something unproven!!!



  • @dannypea
    You're not always gambling on the player, its sometimes worth gambling on the potential interest that player is likely to generate over the short term.



  • @Advinculas-Index yes so short term Sancho is in the news in the England squad and it's worth investing in the hype... I don't see that in an unproven player with a few league apps? I see that more as a gamble mid to long term in the hope that you get it right???

    Just not my strategy!!! Sorry!!



  • @dannypea

    The funny thing is Sancho is exactly that, an unproven player with a few appearances to his name. He’s done very well in short cameos here and there.

    Lets see if he can perform consistently over 90 minutes, every week, deliver dividends and justify his already notable price.



  • Wow, just been checking some stats in previous games, I'm not going to discuss the assists he's made because everyone knows already 😊 the thing that really shocked me was 3 of the games he's come off the bench 16min 32min 22min and he created the most chances in all 3 games, how is that even possible 🤔 what were Dortmund doing b4 he entered the game 🤣🤣🤣 not trying to pump his price, just very very impressed with those stats.. hoping he gets at least 30min for England tonight, was hoping he'd start but that's pretty doubtful, Southgate is quite fair with his team and don't really think he'll drop anyone who's fit unfortunately.



  • @ocs123 yes i get that he's still 'unproven' to a degree but the levels he's played at in the short space of time he's played them he's proved he can perform with the best... He's not just competed for an 18 year old, he's on occasion astounded which is why so many people think so much of him.

    I'm not saying he's going to be the next best thing as we English say that about every English player that comes through and hits the ground running but he's the perfect type of player to invest in on this platform because his growth value is rising all the time and the media hype surrounding him is growing and growing... Next to come will be performance buzz when he gets a run of games which i'm sure won't be too long... as an 18 year old i think he stands out with the likes of Mbappe & Vinicius Junior and perhaps Phil Foden as the teenagers most worthy of investment on FI?



  • Oh look he's not starting, let's sell up quickly... 🙈



  • @Andy-M sell sell sell
