Anyone know why the IS is still 77p? Who's offering that money now the 18p is gone?
Someone who doesn't quite get it 😬
@ScouseSte I'd definitely get a buzz from winning something, but I have absolutely zero interest in traditional gambling so that is possible why we diverge.
Yea valid point mate. I am discovering a lot about my psychology on here lately. I don't buy media players cos it's boring and predictable. I'm definitely looking for that gamblers thrill of winning, that's the most important thing to me.
Yet I'm a long term trader who doesn't flip much so that kinda contradicts really 😀.
@MickTurbo agreed, I think it's why a lot of us wanted tiered PB! Not necessarily to win big, but to stay in the hunt and potentially win something. I always found the opposition (from traders) to such an idea a bit baffling!
I am against tiered PB. It would kill that massive buzz of winning the solitary prize for your players position. I also know it wouldn't be viable financially for FI.
That monster scors from Antonio today would have made other midfielders worthless today as it's extremely unlikely anyone getting near that, but with this TOTM, people holding somebody like LoPell or KDB are still immersed. If either of them, of anybody else for that matter was to manage a 280 or whatever, holders will still feel that they've kind of had a win. Those holding Mark noble will be pretty happy as well
That's exactly it mate, the TOTM is an amazing idea to keep us interested and entertained as much as possible throughout the month.
It's an extension of "your bet isn't over at the final whistle" and I think it's going to entice a lot more new business. Once all the furore over new GK category affecting the market dies down we are looking at one hell of a platform here. I can't help but be over excited 😁
@ScouseSte I've been here 10 months so don't know life before IPDs. Cheers, keep the positive vibes flowing and I'm sure it'll all work out 😀
I've had two meltdowns in two years mate 😀. Post IPD introduction was the first one, and then last October just before the much needed divs increase.
So this time I can see beyond the initial downside to realise it's a great move going forward.
2 steps back for 10 steps forward 👍
(Lack of IS is still a concern that needs addressing though but in terms of divs on offer its a brilliant move!)
@ScouseSte unfortunately for me most of those big PB names were the ones i had to sell to adapt. Im mainly left with youngsters, PB hopefuls and transfer spec players
You'll probably make more on keepers if you did it yesterday.
But I think there might be some keeper sell offs next week when people realise actual GK divs aren't payable till the Premier league new season starts again (September/Oct??)
Capital Appreciation of course, but effectively if you've bought keepers today, youre only playing for one place in TOTM for July and August, plus any clean sheet divs.
I think once Champions league and Europa starts, keepers will be the first to be instant sold, having no pb category yet.
But then theyll rise again when the new season starts.
As with everything on FI, timing is crucial.
So yeah, I'll sit this one out 😁
Yea mate in a couple of weeks all the negativity will have surpassed and we'll be reet 😉👍
Same sort of outrage and disillusioned responses happened when ipds were introduced ("no longer an investment platform, just short term gambling now!" Etc).
I was one who hated it too at first.
But we adapt. And in the end ipds were a good addition.
Just as TOTM and GK divs will be.
It's just gonna take a few weeks for us all to come to terms with things and then the money will flow elsewhere besides bloody goalkeepers 😂
All will be good in the world 😎
@ScouseSte mate im sure this whole next season is going to be about GK and TOTM because the other dividend increases were so pathetic many will consider a lot of their holds over priced considering the growth weve had over the last year. The only other area in for a shout without considering what the media review might do is youth as always. Youth is also a category that is unlikely to ever be applied to keepers so its business as usual in the field.
Yea my strategy might have to adapt. I find keepers so thoroughly boring though! Like holding Harry Kane! Did it once, never again 😂
My portfolio is probably geared up for TOTM already (TAA, Kroos, Messi, Bruno etc) so I am thinking I will totally focus on that aspect and treat any actual PB wins as a bonus along the way (Toni Kroos last night 😜)
I am determined not to get drawn into the keeper FOMO. Just like media players. It's easy money but doesn't give me a hard on like a thrilling PB day that goes down to the wire! 🤣
I've come to realise I am definitely on FI for enjoyment reasons more than trying to make a fortune 🙂
