I have 900 of him, so today has been fun.
Could do with a few more days like this one ha.
He will become Man Utd's captain in the not too distant future, given that he's already one of the clubs longest serving players.
Ole loves him, has praised the crap out of him and got great performances out of him in big games like the PSG match.
After the Wolves game, Ole said he thinks McTominay's natural position is a number 10 but they've been playing him further back out of necessity.
So... I think Man Utd have a young player, with a bright future, who could start racking up more points. He shows the absolute passion needed for the club and we'll see big rises long term.
I got in at 44p. Happy times.
If Bale moves I wouldn't rule out £4.50-£5.
The story is big enough to get the papers buzzing for months ahead.
I'm in until after Christmas I reckon. The timing on Bale could be pretty great.
Madrid are hot on the trail of Pogba. If Pogba leaves for Madrid, a lot of people will get out of Pogba and that money will go somewhere... Bale will pick up a fair bit of it.
Yeah, I wonder what's causing that...
Is it the human aspect perhaps?
Maybe whoever they pay to check the media at midnight, takes the day off and FI, don't mind paying the next day 30 times per year.
Maybe it's one of the jobs the head honcho does himself and some days he has other priorities.
Never been a fan of the "we can't fix things because people made bets" view point. This platform will change many times over the next decade.
But FI will do what they think is right.
That was my initial thought too but putting my software engineer hat on for 30 seconds.
There's no reason FI couldn't create a bot that opens the link and scans the article for the full name.
HEADLINE : "Pulisic becomes FI King!"
Bot opens the website, searches the article for 'Christian Pulisic'.
Very few writers would just use a players single name in an article about that player.
Also... If FI updated their data on the platform so that everyone is at the right club, there's no reason a second search from the bot couldn't look for other keywords to strengthen the case... for example "Chelsea".
The keywords could be used to create a 'Relevancy Score"... which would help the bot flag up articles that might need checking. For example, a Pulisic article without the word Chelsea or USA in would be strange.
I reckon I could knock this kind of a solution up fairly quickly.
That would be a crude version... a more complicated version could even go as far as to learn from the articles using more advanced AI to increase the accuracy.
For example, we all know the main story about Bale right now is his transfer stuff... no reason a bot couldn't have learned that and used the info to increase the relevancy score.
It could also check one story against another similar story from that day, cross reference wikipedia articles, club bio pages, etc. All of this is way too advanced for what FI need but given the possibilities and that a decent AI programmer could do this in no time, the costs would be minimal.
Nah, I got out just before his peak. Then last week I told Ste if I had floating cash I'd have jumped back on for a short term run, because shots of him playing at United would cause a spike, that was at the bottom, so getting back out this morning at Market Value would have meant decent profits.
interestingly his price (£7.12) has been flat since I made the post but it is Sunday in the off season.
This tour has potential to see him keep growing but it could go the other way. There's a lot of nervousness around him and we're getting closer to the point where it either becomes crystal clear that he's staying or going.
When the mighty Leeds United, tip Man Utd over on Wednesday, Pogba will throw his toys out.
