To all the positive folk, keep doing what you're doing, keep the faith whether it be blind or calculated. Have a small bit of sympathy with those who would love to have the same outlook as you, but cant (or wont) for a multitude of reasons (some obvious, some not so obvious).
To all the negative folk, breathe. I completely understand, the stings and betting term changes hurt me too and have shattered my green +'s and my confidence. You aren't alone. But understand the positive guys are going to remain positive, whether you think they are blind or not.
We dont need to keep telling each other to shutup, sell up, and fuck off. We also dont need people telling each other theyre walking around with wool over their eyes and that they are blindly defending FI.
Cant we all just get along! 😂
Am I happy? Fuck no.
Am I selling up? I would love to sell maybe 30-40% of the port to have a cash balance I can choose to either reinvest or withdraw, but not for these losses, so no.
Am I topping up in these times? No cash balance, so no, unless I can make a few calculated sales. If the cash balance was there I would be topping up on players Im paperdown on so I can lower my average cost price.
Am I investing new money? No, as Im already at my personal deposit limit. Anything over this would cross the 'dont invest what you cant afford' line.
If I had grands of spare cash, would I put new money in? No, Im lacking confidence in making what I perceive to be the 'right choices'.
What do I suggest FI can do about this? I dont know, Im not near knowledgable enough to come up with solutions.
What is my strategy going forward? In these uncertain times, and with my own lack of confidence, fuck knows! Regular Div winners, youth with CA potential, and GKs?
Do I think FI have fucked me over? Yes and No. The removal of IS was a huge blow for me, but I know they want a large userbase here with positive volatility etc etc
Why am I making a generic post like this addressed to nobody? So I can get some of my views out here on a public forum without being shat all over by the ever-rosey brigade or the end-is-nigh brigade.
Thanks for reading, sorry for the pointlessness :)
