I joined FootBall Index at the start of February 2020. It's a stock market for footballers, where you can use your research skills to predict which players will rise across all the major leagues in Europe, with points awarded for performance, in-play and media mentions as well as dividends.

This website aims to track my progress. I'll also post regular research, stats and ideas around strategy, as well as making a note of any mistakes made along the way! I spent a decade as a spread betting investor on the financial markets and as a professional horse racing punter. I know virtually nothing about football, and am really looking forward to the challenge.

I perform a lot of analysis, most of which is compiled using the excellent IndexGain website, which you can find on my blog posts below. I also have a Twitter Media account @mediafbi which tracks all the news articles from the Football Index media news RSS feeds.

I've been having a lot of fun lately on FI, taking some profits, putting in some speculative bids on players in unfashionable leagues (err Bundesliga anyone) and topping up on players I identified a few months ago in the EPL and other leagues through PEG and other...

Why In-Play Dividends matter on Football Index

A lot of traders, focus a lot on players with good capital appreciation, but often under-estimate the value Dividends play, especially so with media, and perhaps even more so with in-play Dividends too. I thought I would look at some of the Top Performing In-Play...
