Anyone given Football Index a go?

I did when it first launched - I used it for a few weeks but found it quite boring, if I’m honest.

The loss/win changes so infrequently and by so little, it’s like placing bets which take 6 months to settle.

I’ve been meaning to give it another go to see if it’s changed but haven’t got round to it.

As Beans says, I think if you've got the patience for it it could be interesting but you have to treat it like a stock market; either try for some quick asset flips or sit back for months or even years to see true changes in value. I slapped a couple of hundred in around September/October last year, got bored of it and withdrew November, breaking even unsurprisingly. In the year since, I think like 5 of the 15 players I'd 'invested' in have gotten moves to bigger clubs, in turn bumping their value. :lol:

The whole dividends thing seems bollocks to me in that you don't get much value so I feel like you just need to take a plunge on some youngsters and hope they pan out. I keep wondering if the player prices will plateau at some point, which I guess will come if the amount of money being pumped in slows up at any point, but player values are still rising it seems.

I did it and stuck with it for a while (the changes did get more frequent btw) but overall don't rate it.

The dividend's are a waste of time as you're making less than pennies on the pound.

They also have a rule where there is a maximum amount of time you can hold an asset (I think 36 months but may be wrong) so if you bought some young FM wonderkid at 19 but he has an injury and then a loan period before coming back to his parent club and building his career, you may end up down having been forced to sell him at the 36 month point before he goes on to be a superstar.

They make huge commissions when you sell the assets too.

It all felt like a bit of a con to me but I closed out at about £500 profit.

Wouldn't do it again.

Boro. 9/4
Newcastle 13/8
SDAFC  5/4

A NE treble gets you around 16/1

Fancy homes to be the bets this weekend in the PL 300/1 approximately Saturday  and Sunday games.

Best bet   Is a double Arsenal  and Leeds.

Curious why you choose boro?  I fancy Bournemouth, especially as warnock won’t be in charge of boro as he’s self isolating

my boro mate reckons that's a positive :lol:
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Evens for over 2.5 goals is very generous at Peterborough. Fleetwood are the best team in the country for goals at the moment.

Fulham 4/1 today. I know they were poor in the first game but they seem decent odds for a gamble

Just as a NE trio, no other reason.
