    I won the correct score comp for £20 so this time, on the back of the 'flipping £10 challenge' I am going to try and make as many divs in media buzz as i can.

    I will start with £20 now.
    Comp will end last day of July.

    Capital appreciation will count as I sell players to buy new ones but only the divs will count for the challenge.
    EG, I buy £20 of Kane and he makes 40p div. I sell for £22. I then have £22+40p div to invest in next player but only 40p div counts as profit. I will count the div as a % off the starting £20 only, because otherwise it will be a bugger to calc and turn the challenge into a chore.
    I am NOT allowed to buy any players I am currently on (this is made harder because I have bought for the summer and already own pulisic/kane/sterling etc.

    First purchase:
    4x Eden Hazard
    Total cost: £19.28
    Change: £0.72

    Just holding for a couple of days then will re-evaluate, a bit expensive, I will be looking for cheaper players to increase the % of divs earned but had little time and wanted to get started today because of the triple media days.

    Good luck all

    Not allowed to have someone we already own or has already been chosen by someone else right?

    Think you can have who you want, but not who you already own?

    Yeah correct, you can chose players others have picked, but try to avoid players you personally own.

    The reason I added this in was to force me to think more creatively (I know Hazard isn't a creative pick but was short of time). I want these challenges to make me a better trader, and if I just pick someone I own, it isn't changing/teaching me anything.

    Does that make sense?

    The part about capital appreciation not counting but divs as a % is for same reason. As cap app goes up and selling at right time, and divs go into new players, you can afford more players so then get more divs.
    I am low on players paying divs (think on a £2000 portfolio roughly, £560 up but only £26 in divs over same period) so looking at extending my knowledge and skill set into divs.

    Still could be drawn out enough to recover that drop.
  • MrWh1te

    Yeah I agree.
    Even if it doesn't recover, I am confident enough that I can pick up enough cap app elsewhere when I move him on, to make up for the loss here.
    Only 18.44 sell price, so not a disaster
