Well a turbulent 1st year on FI, that green shoots were finally growing before Mr Covid 19 showed up.
I appreciate most people have made money, know what they are doing and it's easy blah, blah, blah,look at my port it keeps rising 🤑🤑. tbh it is if only we all had a little hindsight. !!!!
I started FI because a work colleague told me about it and how much money you can make, Its easy. He told me who to buy and I chose people who I knew.
I've gone back through my transaction history its not pretty.
A year ago I held 🥺😂 the likes of
Parejo @1-32, kroos @£1-58 ,Reece james @£1-23 ,hakimi,nkunku,richarlison, etc,etc it gets worse there were more. 😲
Did I hold them ....did I f@#k😡 like a bell end I was impatient.
Due to season being nearly over and not knowing about the cycles on FI all players were flying up all around me, transfer rumours etc.
My PB players and youth were doing nothing, so IS'd players 😯, jumped on rising players and got burned as they dropped, then as the season started the players who I owned before then were now flying....and yes my portfolio would have been double,triple,....'ffs you twat'- what should I do..
You've guessed It 👍 that's right I sold up and chased my old pb players for them to drop whilst everyone jumped onto the youth cycle....typical.
I'm now spiralling out of control not knowing which way is up or what to do so I Direct Messaged some of the forum top contributors and they all offered great advice on strategies, cycles, and players.
So luckily in January FI had the their offer on where they'd top up losses of any new purchases that dropped, so I wiped my slate/portfolio clean and started fresh. I jumped on board Bruno F train @7+ whilst crapping it as I've never had a premium player before and got off at £9-50 which helped bring my losses back.
I sold him and set my new portfolio up to where it is today which was going in the right direction.
Until Mr Covid 19 showed up, where like most others ports its going to be red for a while.
The biggest thing I've learned about on this platform which is obvious to everyone is 'Patience' - 'if you are new to to FI and worried about your port during this moment in time don't be as everyone else will be going through red numbers until football starts'.
I'd like to thank a lot of the forum guys for there help and some of the excellent info, I'll not name them here as I don't want it to lead to forum fight.
Happy FI sunday 🍻🍻!!!
Ps I held 100@ ighalo at @34p a until few days before transfer window shut due to the rumours.
I can't change anything but I've learned the hard way.
