Hello again! With football finally back, I’m so glad to have something substantial to do during lockdown, and to have renewed interest In Football Index! With the new Matching Engine it seems like there are a lot of new ways to profit from trading, it’s quite fun buying a player for 10p less than their buy price and seeing the instant profit in your por....

Hello again! Time seems to be slipping away in this lockdown, I forgot to even do a blog last week! With the Bundesliga thankfully returning I’m glad to have a reason to get back into FI more again, just have to hope that everything goes swimmingly and that more leagues will be able to return at some point! As The lockdown progresses however my financial ....

Hello again! In the last 2 weeks quarantine has left me with far more free time than normal, so I decided to use some of my FI profits to buy myself a Playstation 4! Thankfully the past 2 weeks have also seen a reasonable bounceback on some players in my portfolio, which is good considering football doesn’t look that likely until June/July at this poin....

Hello again! A boring week, I don’t think I would’ve lasted very long in the old days of FI where everything was media based! Unfortunately for me personally without football on there is very little reason to check the app other than to hope my Kane/Neymar shares are in the top 3 positions. Hopefully when 5 places come around I’ll have a little more m....

Hello again! A strange week in these strange times, but overall not a whole lot of movement in the portfolio. With my work being closed and me getting paid less than usual the next few weeks will probably be quite stagnant in terms of putting new money in, and I’m not really looking to change too many players around at this point in time, so it’ll be a ....

Hello again! Well, it really has hit the fan recently hasn’t it? As the real world looks to be in turmoil (very likely that my place of work will be closing for a while in a few days, which is just mental), football all being postponed and uncertainty about the domestic seasons as well as the Champions League, Europa League and Euros, these are very stran....

Hello again! A turbulent week for me on FI with quite a few drops in my portfolio as Bruno Fernandes kept rocketing throughout the week! It has been annoying watching his price grow every time I think it would stop growing, but you can’t be on all the big rises I suppose!

Hello again! It’s been a big 2 weeks since I last updated you on how the portfolio has performed, with a big shift around as I look to remove some dead weight and rejig with some players I’ve had on my watchlist for a while.

It's been a whole year since we first invited FILuigi to publish a weekly blog on Footy Index Scout to document his journey from being a relatively new trader. To celebrate this occasion we thought that for the 50th edition of this blog and to mark one year, it would be fun to have a little Q&A session with the man himself.
FIS: What has been you....

Hello again! A rough week with my portfolio taking a bit of a pasting in the market over the last week, most notably my biggest holds of Sterling and Kroos. Whilst disheartening, in Kroos’ case I have the upmost faith in the Euros and Champions League for him to rise again as his PB stats over the course of the entire season have been immense, and it’s ....

Hello again! Another chop and change week with some big names departing from my port in favour of some new faces (and one returning player!)

Hello again! It’s been a good week with Plea and Kroos picking up some big gold day dividends for me- especially so in Kroos’ case considering the recent plummet in his price! A deposit and multiple top ups has been the highlight of my week, as I continue my seemingly never ending quest to acquire at least 200 shares in every player I own.
Posted on 20 January 2020
Hello again! It’s been a tough week with a pretty significant drop in Kroos, making me think he was injured! To my understanding it was just a sell off out of fears about his age combined with the fact that he hasn’t won dividends in a while. Whilst I have no intention of selling him (to me he’s one of the best PB performers in my portfolio), it s....

Hello again! This week’s ‘highlight’ has been watching Bruno Fernandes rocket up after selling him a few months ago in fears that he wouldn’t transfer, how wrong I was! Transfer month is fully underway with the new dividends FI has implemented for it, I intend to sit out the rest of the month transfer wise and keep going with my current strategy of....

Hello again! A dull week on FI for me amidst some big rises on the market, my balance has been affected by both the drops of some of my bigger holdings as well as the commission on selling my players starting to catchup to me.

Hello again! I hope you’ve had a happy new year and that it’s prosperous for your portfolio! I’ve made another minor tactical switch heading into the new year, with my focus once again moving from premium holds into cheaper players, I’m at war with myself a lot recently about where to put my money but it is slowly leaning towards quantity of shar....

Hello again! I hope you had a Merry Christmas and have made some decent profits over the Christmas period! This week has been decent in terms of profits, with my balance slowly trickling upwards amid a few shifts in my port. I received a 5% deposit bonus over the week so I’ve taken the chance to put some money back into the index.

Hello again! This has been a week defined by one good decision and one unfortunate injury completely overshadowing it. Depay’s ACL injury has been the first time in my index journey where I’ve experienced such a huge drop in such a small period of time but in honesty, I remain optimistic this week. I saw something on twitter comparing traditional booki....

Hello again! A somewhat stagnant week, with the amount of selling and withdrawing I’ve been doing it can be hard to notice that the port is actually dropping! I’m in a state where I want to purchase Bundesliga players, but I know that if I just wait a few weeks until we’re in the winter break I can pick them up for a discount, so right now a lot of m....

Hello again! A big week for my portfolio as I’ve made some cutthroat decisions regarding a lot of my defenders, choosing to reinvest the money from my centre backs into other areas of my portfolio. For a while on my blog now I’ve been complaining about the lack of effectiveness my defender acquisition was, and it’s been costing me both actual share v....
