I dont think it's right. It's apartheid between rich and poor. If they were going to prioritise I'd rather they gave new customers better service... Like for first 3 months you are a priority customer. They are the most at risk of leaving

RE: For any new traders out there just buy pogba
@Mundek this is the argument in a nutshell - I am a huge advocate of Pogba and Neymar. But ive openly stated/advised people on lower budgets not to bother. I know the % can be extrapolated as the same... but in my mind each dividend win has to be directly reinvestable OR withdrawn. So I would be targeting £5-10 for a win as this money, to me, has a tangible worth. Winning 10p is meaningless to me... I cant even buy 1 share in a worthy IPD player for that. But if I win £5+ for every Neymar MB win... this is really worth while.. as I can invest once, then keep recycling the winnings in cheap players. 10 shares @ 50p every couple of days, turning that into 10 shares at 70p becomes really profitable.
With cap ap ONLY you have to keep selling shares to buy or making further deposits. Not everyone can endlessly deposit everytime they want to move into a new IPD striker for example
So yes... I now have 1500 Neymar, 800 Pogba, 1000 rashford and not everyone can afford that in at all, let alone in a diverse port. But that means ill be winning £200-300 this week alone. That buys me 1000 shares in a bonucci or 300-500 shares in the 80-100p category. They will make cap ap and ipd and maybe PB... so my initial outlay on Neymar and Pogba is now creating multiple revenue streams, and multiple players in my port that I could sell to generate more cash.
Just as it isn't a sensible strategy for someone with £40 to buy 5 Pogbas .. its not sensible for someone with £5k plus to buy 20,000 Doherty. It skews the base price of a cheap player too much … too hard to sell... high risk timing it right.
Best day outside of announcements?
Today has been almost a perfect score... 9 strikes and a spare!
Gna for salah, mane, dembele
The £500 cap ap is nicely spread between a pogba/neymar revival at the top end... Havertz, pepe, brewster and Co in the middle bracket and some 🚀 cheapies like Ndiaye.
4 months ago I made a deposit I thought risky at the time of £500 with a hope of doubling it in a year... Now (after several larger deposits) I've made it in a day.
I think this has been my most profitable day outside of an announcement ☺
Any newbies that may have taken some big hits this week... Stick with it... There is money to be made!
RE: Ways to improve FI and attract many more users..
I would start by making a single, double and treble PB days be exactly that so 2p/1p on single day, 4p/2p on double day and 6p/3p on treble day for position/star man splits
Personally I'd always advocate more places than upping the prize money for existing. You can buy a good set of pb players based on data... But on any given day some rat bastard CB scores a brace and gets star man. So annoying! By adding extra places and/or make star man it's own category it adds value to 'pb players'
My idea... Single day pays first place only, double day pays top 2 in each category, treble pays top 3
RE: Football Index for the rich to get richer?
@Martyn-B yeh that fateful Friday night when fat rat raiola made his statement sorted the men from the boys. We didn't quiver at the knees and IS like so many yellow belly lilly livered around us... We took our balls out, nailed them to the mast, topped up willing to go down with the ship! We deserve everything we get for holding/buying pogba.
RE: Football Index for the rich to get richer?
the rich get richer can be true of any investment, bet, market
the phrase is only meaningful when accompanied by 'and the poor get poorer' … and that certainly isn't true of FI
as others say - you can buy who you like and make the same %. It's not a scheme where you get greater benefits by buying memberships etc

RE: Dispelling the Football Index Growth Myth (research heavy)
@Dan-The-Man well the title should be 'not every player will grow with the market'
Nothing about myths?! And dispelling lol... Dillusions of grandure.
You've written a Guardianesque article to essentially, yet again, state something everyone knows and could have been said in a sentence.
RE: Getting married tomorrow: should I check football index? Yes / No - discuss
Don't get married... Makes putting all your money into the index a lot harder... As you won't have any money and they constantly badger on about how much you've put in the index!
RE: The only way the top 20 will ever break £10 barrier?
@Carboney I wouldn't do 11 as the classifications get blurred with so many teams playing different formations. But, as I've suggested before, a good idea might be to pay 3 places in each position on treble days, 2 places on double game day and just one place on single game day.
RE: NEW TRADERS: Example of a bad trade...
There can be absolutely no disputing that this is a very bad trade.
Also never underestimate what this forum can dispute 😝 you think today is Monday? @Dan-The-Man can provide FACT that it isn't
RE: It just won’t stop 🚀🚀🚀
@Andy-M yeh this is exactly why the growth is steady right now. on announcement day I put in an extra £500 - due to tech glitch I accidentally spent it all on Savanier… but he went from 2.90 to 3.27 in less than 5 mins, so I sold at a good profit, withdrew my £500 (cos I really didn't want to deposit more in the first place) and kept the profit split between savanier and vaneken.
But in the last two days im making £100 a day profit due to the continuous growth... if id left the £500 in (ok not on savanier who is already back to £3ish) id be making more money.
so I just put £500 back in on Goretzka and Maguire lol
RE: Share Split Announcement - Thoughts & Reactions
@Vespasian32 can you tell us where the biggest percentage increase has hit. At a glace it looks like IPDs.
Haven't double checked the calcs... But sheet looking like this;
Everyone who IS Rashford after the 1st leg 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
But tbf... He went into that game at 13.90 ish.. IS would have paid over £13 per share and since then he dropped to £12.38 so could have IS and bought back and taken a free 60pps compared to anyone that held. I held Rashford throughout, but have IS on Martial when he got injured and made over £1pps buy buying again at £7.84
Too much judgement here...if you IS you aren't panicking or stating that the player will never rise again, you are doing it because money tied up in a player that is losing value could be better spent elsewhere. The judgement is just as skillful as any other trade...timing that you get out first, deciding whether or not the player will drop below your IS value, deciding if/when to buy back in.
Another example I bought 100 longstaff at 2.35....rose to 3.55 (ish) sold 50 to market.. The other 50 I was going to keep longer term... But as soon as he was injured I IS and got 3.05. He is now 2.64 and ruled out for season so I see him dropping more. If I buy back now I'd be 50pps better off than anyone who held... But I won't cos he isn't worth anything until next season now anyway.
The mugs in this situation are anyone holding just cos they think in the next 3 years he will bounce back
