I think all the really big money has already been made on this platform. Newbies like me are late to the party. Your only chance of making huge money now is finding the next Messi or Neymar currently priced at £2 or less and buying shedloads - but let’s face it, what is the chance of that happening?
The index goes in waves. Before PB, players looked horribly overpriced. There were a stack of players priced over £5 and with 5p media dividends they simply weren't worth it.
Then PB and triple media came in which changed everything. It took a while for the market to adapt and for a while , players were very under-priced. Everything has caught up now and on the whole (whilst now pre PB levels), the market looks a bit over-priced. Sure Pogba may have crazy yields but there are thousands of players with a crap yield. If things stay as they are then yes, the days of big profits may be ending.
However if the market keeps rising and they do another massive dividend increase then prices will rocket and today's prices will look relatively cheap in a couple of years. It may that in 2021 , new newbies may complain that you needed to be on the index in 2019 to make the real money.
