My fav hold is 1500 futures in Sergio Cordova, the accident prone Venuzuelan striker/winger at FC Augsburg.
Scoring an unenviable 6 goals in 45 games *most as substitute" and then getting injured before the Copa America sums up this player.
Yet one day he'll get a PB above 15 and i'll rejoice. I suspect he's similar to @Advinculas-Index in that we both know our players are not going to set the world on fire.
Up 6p though...god knows how.
Cordova is a funny one. One of the top scorers at the u20 World Cup a couple of years ago. To compound your bad luck with him, he was basically born 2 years too early as well, if he had put that performance in this year he would be considerably more expensive with everyone proclaiming him the next big thing.
Also everyone who has bought now has bought to sell to ipd flippers. But in the first month there are only three games.
Not many flippers gonna be buying him at that price for three games imo.
And then everyone trying to sell will probs be shocked at the lack of demand and a small crash could happen as people instant sell.
Or he could be propped up by new people trying out ipd flipping?
I would sell while he's high if you own him.
Is it just me that’s reading the links with Mbappé to Madrid as Zidane prefers him to Neymar who he believes could have a diruptive influence in the dressing with his rockstar lifestyle?? Granted that’s why neymar is a great investment on FI but in terms of transfer speculation this summer I expect Mbappé to be well involved again!
I've made plenty of mistakes selling players at a loss but on the whole... Selling at a loss and re-investing into someone you feel will grow in value quicker isn't a bad option... Take a goalkeeper for example.. Recently I sold De Gea after holding for around 10 months (finally succumbed to the idea that GK's won't get their own PB category) and I lost a couple of pence per share whilst in May I could have made a massive 10p per share profit... Half hoping for some transfer speculation to Madrid the De Gea thing didn't materialise and now, probably much later than it should have been i've finally got bored of ZERO interest and cut my losses.
I have a few holds out of form... I brought Ross Barkley prior to him moving to Chelsea hoping for a quick upsurge and got lumbered with him ever since... I brought Fred in the summer who I hoped would not only feature for Brazil, but tear it up in the opening weeks for United too.. He did neither and I sold at quite a bit of loss, knowing his form wont improve anytime soon... Fred at £3 dropped to 2.50 and whilst losing 0.50 a share might sound painful, investing it into someone like Manuel Akanji at the same price and seeing him rise as equally as quick and all of a sudden selling at a loss becomes a great idea!!!
