Ligue 1 - Buy Now to Avoid the Rush 😉
ROI Hunting - So you want 50% ROI?
Hello all, how are you doing? What did you think of Adam Cole's update last night? For me the key takeaway was that it provided enhanced certainty as to the future of the platform. Of course, not all questions were answered but I think the key ones were. Exciting times!
Anyway, with the Ligue 1 season creeping closer to starting and the current seasons winding down I thought it would be a good time to drop a new version of the most popular posts on my blog. The ROI Hunting series. In this one I talk about a few French players I think can make you 50% ROI by this time next year....Let me know what you think!

I take a look at the upcoming games and pick out fixtures and players to focus on plus I bring back a weekly look at the French Portfolio's stats and figures for the voyeurs amongst you!!
Ligue 1 Weekly Preview - Game Week 5
Legends, it has been a while! I must admit that my attention had turned away from the forum recently after it went offline for a bit. However, I see it is now back up and running and so I will begin dropping my blog posts here again. And, as with every week here is my latest Ligue 1 Preview. I look at the week just gone, the week ahead, offer some insight and look more broadly at French footballers playing across the globe. Come take a look!
Paul Pogba is Joining Real Madrid......in 2020.
Hi guys, how are you? I have taken a break in my other scribblings to drop the below post. It is my approach to the Paul Pogba situation. I thought it might be useful for others to see how I have assessed it from my own position. The key point, make your own assessment taking on board as much information as possible. Take a look and let me know what you think!
Performance Buzz Dark Horses - Exploiting Single and Double Days
Single game day today. Liverpool players will be the biggest PB threats but there is also value out there. Exploiting these single and double days can be quite profitable as your chances of winning are amplified. For me Marseille are the value. Clearly Florian Thauvin should be the main PB threat but Maxime Lopez, Boubacar Kamara and Duje Caleta-Car are the value picks. Don't sleep on Balotelli for some IPD either!
Here's a previous blog post of mine looking at some PB Dark Horses from my French Challenge Portfolio:
Any tips, questions or comments then ket me know!

RE: France Focus - Who is on the Plane to Euro 2020?
@jonathan-rolfe Hey bud. I think he has a half decent chance of going. It will depend I think on how others perform or their fitness. He was selected recently for a squad. So never, say never!
France Focus - Who is on the Plane to Euro 2020?
Legends, I hope you are all doing well. I also hope you are all as glad as I am that the international break is over. However, if you are a sucker for punishment then why not take a look at my assessment of France's most recent games and the players who boosted and nerfed their Euro 2020 chances.
