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.

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.

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....

Hello again! An fairly eventful week with a few sells and buys, as the crazy portion of the season approaches, I want to just observe what I can and make judgement about my premier league holds over the December period. With Mourinho taking over my beloved Spurs and seeing the rises in players following that, I’m also going to be keeping a closer eye on ....
Posted on 18 November 2019
Hello again! After a crazy few weeks on the index, the time has come for another quiet week, with minimal changes to the port after the demolition of it around the dividend increase period. The International break has actually served me quite well with some of my biggest holdings (Sterling, Griezmann, Kroos) all returning steady dividends throughout. This ....

Hello again, long time no see! A mental few weeks on the index for me, lots of regrets and a few happy trades (selling Werner before his gold day win was a real kicker for me), but let’s get right into the trades I’ve made!

Hello again! Another week of steady growth that only seems more likely over the coming weeks as traders experience first hand how good the new dividend system is for their holds (especially on Gold days!)- luckily for me, my portfolio has a nice variety of strong PB players from the different leagues so I’ve been catching the benefits of these rises, tho....

Hello again! An insane week of growth for me this week as FI knocks it out of the park with a 57% dividend increase, happy days! Last week I said that I’d be focussing primarily on topping up on players, but with the announcement being brought forward to last Friday I had to be more decisive on selling players I was unsure on and topping up on those I wa....

Hello again! Another week of shifting players in my portfolio, as I’m trying to gear up for whatever the announcement is on the 29th. Judging by previous announcements I’m sure it’s a positive one that will result in another market boom, it’s just getting on the right players which is proving tricky!

Hello again! It’s been a bit of a dull week unfortunately, with the market experiencing some pullback after the huge rise following the deposit bonus (affecting a lot of premium holds that I have sadly), but luckily I managed to sell off another 100 Pogba before his price really tanked, so the week has been all about reinvesting that money for me.
