One of the best ways I have made large profits is from watching plenty of youth football. Last season I highlighted various youth players in the 'Football Index Value Players' Facebook group having watched them play.
For example, Conor Gallagher at 55p (Currently £1.35), Rayhaan Tulloch at 24p (currently 68p), Billy Gilmour at 60p (Currently £1.63) amongst others.
As a Premium Members, in addition to having the Youth Player Database at your disposal, I will be sharing my views via blogs on Football Index Youth Players whenever I watch them play.
To find further information on the player, you can click the player's name and it will take you to their profile.
Final Score: Napoli under 19's 1-1 Liverpool under 19's
Football Index Youth Player Reviews
Current Price (17/09/19): £0.79
Showed a lot of quality and potential
Some very good, skillful touches
Looked dangerous whenever on the ball
Played on the left wing, but, often cut inside
Unable to convert one very good chance, due to a good block from Ki-Jana Hoever
Strong passing - particularly good vision
Overall, I think he looks good value at his current price based on his performance and very strong youth player stats.
Current Price (17/09/19): £1.12
Captain of the Liverpool under 19's and you could tell
Played in an attacking midfield role, but, was found all over the pitch
Strong at demanding the ball
Strong at dribbling and looked technically good - some good flicked / short passes
Lots of potential - end product and decision making could be improved
Overall, I also think Curtis Jones looks good value due to him being English, an attacking midfielder and currently Liverpool captain for the under 19's. Strong stats at youth level, but, does not look ready to make the next step up to the first team yet.
Curent Price: £1.09
Looked solid defensively
Did not stand out - partly because he was up against Gaetano
Very good block to deny Gaetano from scoring
Did not get forward very much
Overall, Hoever is currently priced about right (Did not stand out as good value) given he is dutch and is a defender, which limits his price ceiling. However, he is only 17 and certainly has a bright future.
It is important to note that the reviews above are a review of just one game and that there are many factors to consider when purchasing youth players.
However, these reviews should help you gain an advantage over other traders that are unable to watch the game and so have limited information on such players.
