@janner73 thanks for the advice! That makes a lot more sense now.

I'm pretty new to the FI platform so just gaining an understanding as I go along. Whilst I know what the PB is and why it is important, I was just hoping for someone to be able to say what you should be looking out for when assessing whether players are good for PB?
I am on the Footy Index Scout so can analyse the players, but I see a lot of people on the forums etc. referring to PB averages and stuff. What do people normally say is a good average to base stats off? For example, I have seen a few say an average of around 70 PB is good, but I just don't know really.
Any advice on PB or dividends in general would be appreciated!
RE: Players for Euro 2020. Stay ahead of the curve!
Cedric Soares (32p) is a good buy for me.
Regular RB starter for Portugal so will get international games and likely be Euro 2020 starter.
In the meantime, he is likely to either start for Saints (manager has come out today to confirm slate is wiped clean) or may secure a move to a bigger team as is being linked with the likes of PSG and Arsenal.
I'm weighing him up with another few options
RE: Newbie Port - Opinions?
Thanks for the advice.
I guess it may help to explain some of my logic behind the buys so people can see if what I'm saying makes sense really!
I bought Izzy Brown as he has just come back from a lengthy injury spell and may get games to impress at Chelsea under a new manager, particularly while they have a transfer ban and ageing wingers (I wanted Kasey Palmer but he isn't on FI yet). This logic also applies to Dujon Sterling and Reece James.
Skipp, Gibbs-White, Foden, Tuanzebe, McEachran all potentially long term holds with them likely to improve and gain value. A few may have significant breakthrough seasons this year.
Icardi is always linked with moves away so got for the potential links. Vazquez was a mistake bought at the peak of his interest with Arsenal but he has since dropped and I don't think will rise unless a late transfer. Rondon is similar as explained above, as well as Weghorst.
Am I thinking on the right lines or am I just talking shite basically? haha
RE: Newbie Port - Opinions?
@DiamondTiger I started a week ago and all players currently held are just from my initial deposit so I haven't sold anyone yet.
Thanks very much for the advice. Yes, I bought Rondon hoping for the move to West Ham and initially he went up, but interest has cooled and therefore so has his value. I still think he will be on the move this summer but if it's to China (which is looking likely), then his value will drop further. I am tempted to accept the loss and get out of this now. The same with Izzy Brown although I may just wait for his pre-season to see if he gets some game exposure and how he performs.
Newbie Port - Opinions?
I am very new to this and I just wanted to get some opinions on my portfolio so it can help me to better understand it?
I realise that my initial investment is very small as I just wanted to try it out to begin with, and I know people have different aims from this i.e. capital appreciation, dividends etc. but any general ideas would be useful?
Just wondering what people’s thoughts are on Coutinho?
I’m fairly new to this so just getting my head around the market. But, does anyone else think it may be a worthwhile time to buy in to him?
His price has dropped quite a lot, he’s likely to be heavily linked with moves away and perhaps back to the PL so may get MB as it will likely be a large fee if he goes, wherever he ends up he is a solid performer?
Or am I just new and naive to think this?
RE: Initial Investment - New Member
Thanks for your advice.
I am going to start initially with £100 as suggested, have a play around with the market and see how everything works so I can get a good jist of things.
Although of course I understand the aim is mainly long term capital growth, I would be looking for short term gains with my initial £100 and then can look to diversify and grow my portfolio as I gain more understanding and confidence to be able to potentially invest more.
