The Community Round Up

Filed under: Community - Posted by: Jonty

A pair of community statisticians surfaced in our community articles this week, as the complexities of the Fantasy Premier League’s (FPL) Bonus Point System and the attack and defence ratings for the World Cup teams came under examination. Elsewhere, our globe-trotting scribes continued on their tour of the 32 qualifiers for Brazil, while closer to home, the key goalkeeper strategies for the forthcoming Premier League campaign were assessed. We revisit those articles, whilst also checking in on the week’s Hot Topics discussions, where we find the community in nostalgic mood:

The Community Submissions

We start our look at last week’s community articles with two impressive slabs of number-crunching. Bedknobs and Boomsticks began proceedings with an in-depth look at the FPL’s Bonus Point System (BPS) to investigate how players are benefitting from the method of calculating bonus points, which made its debut last season. His analysis, which he calls “The BPS baseline”, proved to be one of the week’s most talked-about articles of the last seven days. Be sure to also have a look through the discussion that follows, particularly for the further stat analysis provided by Smarty Pants and 3rd Turd.

For The Sarjeant, the World Cup proved the inspiration for some numerical analysis. He chose to develop his own attacking and defending rating system for each of the tournament’s teams based on their qualifying campaigns. Another must-read article for those wishing to soak up some stats ahead of their World Cup Fantasy squad selections.

Not surprisingly, the World Cup continued to dominate the submissions heading our way, as writers took us on a tour of the teams taking part. Christina not only gave us a handy round up of every team’s warm-up matches but also found time to have a close look at Greece’s prospects.

Demi weaved his teamsheet magic over Bosnia, while Mata is the Juan was off to Ghana for a spot of scouting, leaving FC Borcelona to investigate Nigeria’s chances.

Bosnia also came under the spotlight as Asquishypotato’s series of Group round-ups reached Group B. Meanwhile, El Muneco focused on Italy’s prospects.

Domestic issues were not neglected entirely, as JK and Dino chipped in with further submissions to help prepare us for the new Premier League season. JK’s article examined the pros and cons of the various goalkeeper strategies, examining the merits of rotating shot-stoppers or sticking with one reliable asset. Meanwhile, Dino’s focus was on the players in all areas of the pitch, as we rolled out the second part of his “Prime Targets” series. Look out for the final part early next week.

The Hottest Topics

Bedknobs and Boomsticks’ BPS analysis spilled over into the Hot Topics this week as we asked whether the FPL’s new bonus point system should be tweaked or even scrapped entirely. Dino rightly stated that bonus points add an extra layer of excitement and interest to the game, but wanted to see more points awarded for midfield creativity. Wakey, however, called for a threshold whereby players had to achieve a certain BPS totals before being considered for bonus points.

Wakey was also busy in the Members Area this week, tweaking his custom statistics tables to showcase 2013/14’s top performers and give us an insight into some of the players to consider next season. Attacking defenders and touches in the box were the two sets of statistics he assessed this time around.

The managerial merry-go-round continued this week with Mauricio Pochettino leaving St Mary’s for the head coach position at Tottenham. Among those to take part in our discussion on his move were Heydudes13 who pondered whether Southampton forward Jay Rodriguez could follow his former boss. Meanwhile, I Am Not For Kinnear wondered how Southampton will perform next season without their inspirational manager and potentially a raft of players, with Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw seemingly amongst those on the verge of exits.

The cavalcade of World Cup community submissions also prompted a number of Hot Topics focused on the tournament. We’ve already discovered that the official FIFA game incorporates recovered balls into its scoring, a stat that could well prove pivotal to our success in the game. Heydudes13’s look at the Champion’s League top earners of recovered balls could well prove crucial reading for those looking to get involved in the McDonald’s-sponsored effort. Meanwhile, for those dabbling in the Fantasy iTeam game, Anonymous was on hand to provide a complete player list.

Welbztree is renowned in the community for delivering the team line-ups for the Premier League’s Saturday afternoon kick-offs. Ahead of the World Cup, he’s turned his attention to international team-sheets, rolling out his predictions for the World Cup teams’ starting XIs.

Finally, Sully Sonic chose to roll back the years and quiz the community for their favourite World Cup players, teams and moments. Maradona’s 1986 World Cup performances were cited as Royscalleranne’s treasured World Cup memory, while Damo has fond recollections of Cameroon’s Roger Milla – one of the stars of the 1990 tournament.

The Community Tournaments

The FFS UEFA World Cup tournament has reached its main recruitment phase. Today’s community article listed the selected captains for the 32 nations and now those guys are getting busy filling up their five-man squads. Check out the article and the comments for details on how you can get involved in FFS UEFA’s latest competition.

  1. Daley Blind position update.

    LvG has confirmed that Blind is his best LB in the squad so he & Janmaat will play as the FB/WBs. Shame.

    • 5 months, 1 day ago
    1. will the centre backs be martins indi de vrij and vlaar or will heitinga get a look in?

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. Heitinga ain't even in the 23.

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
          • 5 months, 1 day ago
      2. Those look to be the 3 but Veltman may also get a look in

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
    2. Why shame?

      I thought it's obvious since LvG's style is to play 5-3-2, and revert to 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 when attacking.

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
    3. Not really a shame, since they don't have many others who can play in that position.

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
    4. Is he one of those attacking fullbacks or a more defensive one? I assume if they play 5-3-2 he'll push up alot.

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. it's a shame because he is now a v good DMC, also because there aren't any better options at LB.

        He is an attacking full back, but Janmaat is probably even more so. In any case the Dutch system will always have attacking FBs, it's how we roll ;-)

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
        1. That and a Beast in the middle of Park (Davids, De Jong).

          Oh, and a silky striker ;)

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
  2. What are the the captains looking for in a potential team member? Just FPL rank or would UFPL UCL experience matter more (as they are more squad based games)?

    • 5 months, 1 day ago
    1. It's all about how committed you are about playing the McDonald's game, atleast for me.
      Game for joining the Dutch contingent?

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. I'm considering it, mate; I've had a read of the rules but still not exactly sure what each team member actually does for each H2H match...

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
        1. Well, it will be basically all about your gut feeling. :)
          See, it is simple. All you'd want to do is score good points every GW. That's the basic requirement of every Fantasy. :)

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
          1. But does each team member only pick the defenders and another the forwards (for example) or am I totally off track on that?

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
            1. No. It is your entire team score for the GW.
              You do NOT have to do anything extra other than setting your team for the gameweek.
              As simple as that.
              Now, if I nominate you as DEF for my team, you face the AM of that team. That's it.

              • 5 months, 1 day ago
        2. The team members get allocated a position E.G Striker. The strikers will then be in a H2H for that GW against the GK of the opposition. If the striker got more points than the GK (e.g 60-55) then that counts as 1 goal scored for his team. All of the H2Hs in your teams match result in one goal each for the winners, so all of the matchups will have 5 goals in them. I think...

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
          1. SH

            Striker will face GK of another team? :shock: i thought striker will face striker and GK will face GK of other team

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
            1. Nope

              GK vs ST; Def vs AM; DM vs DM

              • 5 months, 1 day ago
          2. This. It's the Davis Cup format, or Thomas Cup if you watch badminton..

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
            1. SH

              I have seen Davis Cup, but didnt went much in deep of its format... Anyway cheers! Thats interesting

              • 5 months, 1 day ago
            2. In Davis Cup format it would be more like:
              Striker v Striker, Midfielder v Midfielder;
              Goalkeeper + Defender v Goalkeeper + Defender;
              Striker v Midfielder, Midfielder v Striker.

              • 5 months, 1 day ago
    2. fpl rank is a factor but charisma and looks are much more important

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. Well that's me out of the running so!!!

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
        1. ;) if you want to join Australia I would be thrilled!

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
    3. To be honest, the best part of these competitions is the banter and how most of the community gets involved. Upon choosing my team members, I wanted people who were (semi)regular posters so they'd get involved in the banter, as well as being good fantasy managers.

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      • 5 months, 1 day ago
    4. I'm just looking for people who'll get involved in the banter and stick with the team.

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
        1. Oi, keep your filthy mitts off of him!

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
          1. And I always thought the Dutch were the most attractive team? ;)

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
      2. Epic, join a fellow Villan and lets get this Costa Rica wagon rolling.

        1. The ship has just sailed. But I'm more than willing to jump ship if the right bribe of hard cash comes along.

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
          1. Epic, we are a land of upstanding moral integrity.

            ... Although our gratuitous objectification of the female form in our recruitment drive may rise a few eyebrows...

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
            1. Not if it's aimed at 1970s Sun readers with the mental age of 12.

              • 5 months, 1 day ago
                • 5 months, 1 day ago
          2. epic if it helps you narrow down your choice, i don't need you ;)

    1. In reference to Mark and Granville's view of my management style - brace yourself for Ecuadullardity. ;-)

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. Yaya might even retire from international football now. First there was birthdaycakegate, now his staunchest advocate is abandoning him. Too far, Jonty, too far.

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
    2. unbelievable.

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. Am i seeing a new shade right there! 8-)

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
        1. haha, don't worry BL. I have something up my sleeve.

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
          1. I reckon Mark or Granny!

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
    3. Wow, what a coup.

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
  7. For MacD transfers:-

    No. Round Description Number of transfers
    1 1st group phase Initial squad
    2 2nd group phase 0
    3 3rd group phase 0
    4 Round of 16 Unlimited
    5 Quarter-finals Unlimited
    6 Semi-finals Unlimited
    7 Final Unlimited

    "You can modify your squad throughout the season in the transfer market. The transfer market is opened during the official rest days of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™. "

    So in the group phase you have no transfers allowed but from last 16 onwards you can do as many as you want during each rest day…….Correct?

    • 5 months, 1 day ago
    1. You can do unlimited, but it's only before the deadline. Like having a WC every week in FPL.

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. Are you sure that is the case for the first 3 rounds in the group phase…….says transfers 0

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
        1. Yeah, I mean in the knockout stages. No transfers before that.

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
          1. Ok cool thanks……important to pick a good initial squad then.

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
        2. Next WC is before the Round of 16. You are stuck with your squad until then.

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
          1. actually like that….thanks.

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
          2. stuck makes it sound so much worse than it is.

            Squad loyalty, that's how we see it in Costa Rica. Its a good thing.

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
  8. Those of you playing the fox sports game, who are your 3 strikers?

    • 5 months, 1 day ago
    1. sanchez messi and neymar for first round...will remove sanchez for dzeko after it though

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. Barcelona is that you?

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
      2. No faith in your Aussies I see :D

        I was leaning towards Messi Neymar and Lukaku, but I haven't really thought about transfers yet.

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
        1. :D

          our team in real life is rubbish!

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
          1. Well one of your defenders is Good... ;)

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
    2. fred, lukaku and the wild card of klose

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. No Neymar/Messi/Ronaldo might hurt.

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
        1. yeah it could come back to haunt me..might go fred to neymar then. di maria is the argentinian must have for me. don't think ronaldo will do much.

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
          1. di maria a must have,why? been toying with the idea of getting him in.now uve made it harder :)

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
            1. i just feel that everything will go through him, just like it does at madrid. sorry to throw another log on the fire. :)

              • 5 months, 1 day ago
  9. Been away for a couple of weeks. Which is the best Fantasy World Cup game?

    • 5 months, 1 day ago
    1. I'd say the Mirror game is the best.

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. The rules very similar to fpl.

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
      2. is it free to play?

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
        1. so everyone on here is playing the mirror one?

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
            • 5 months, 1 day ago
          1. I think majority will play McD's one.

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
        2. Aye. And as Marr says. It's pretty much this same as FPL.

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
      3. I've just made my team on the Mirror game, but now it's all gone a bit strange and I can't see my team?

        Am I being dumb? Or are other people having issues?

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
        1. Scratch that. It seems to be working now!

          Budget is very generous...my only criticism.

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
      • 5 months, 1 day ago
  10. FORZA AZZURI!!! 8-)

          1. Only if you're left on the bench ;)

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
            1. I am surprisingly good at these things. ;-)

              • 5 months, 1 day ago
            2. Shame there is none ;)

              • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. Indeed, plus the Samba Boys, and Drug Lords of Colombia.

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
    2. Wow, nice work Welbz and co!

      Fantastic scalp on offer for Costa Rica :cool:

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
  11. Will there be a DGW for Brazil to start with in McD?

    • 5 months, 1 day ago
    1. Don't think so. I think the 2nd GW starts before the 1st one ends. If one of your players from Russia-South Korea get injured or whatever then you can sub them.

              1. Will do, anyone else on board the OranjeBus yet?

                • 5 months, 1 day ago
                1. There's No Association Bergkamp is Legend, an Oranje himself.
                  And well, we are in talks with another couple of guys. I'm kind of sad that Pompeyfan can't play. He's a big Dutch fan.

        2. I'm going to wait till McD opens to decide

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
          1. It's open mate; only another 17 minutes if you want a Sausage McMuffin though ;)

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
      2. Hahaha, sorry, just read his post now!

  16. Wow you can pick a fantastic squad in the mirror game. Players under priced to the max and you get an extra 5m after group stages.

    • 5 months, 1 day ago
    1. and players r over priced aswell...dzeko price is laughable compared to say neymar....

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
  17. Does someone have a link of the hot topic about the players with highest recovered balls a few days ago? Thanks

    • 5 months, 1 day ago
    1. :lol: It's in the article above!

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. Oh dear :(
        Thanks again

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
    2. Perhaps check the community roundup...

      ...oh wait.

  18. Hey JT´s Dog can I be a part of your team for the FFS WC?

    • 5 months, 1 day ago
    1. i was trying to only include dogs
      so if you are willing to convert for a few weeks then yes.
      maybe king charles nil miss or something

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. :lol:

        Many dogs are named King though... plus you need a translator ;)

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
        1. though i suppose ronaldo grav works, as he is top dog in footy
          ok you're in if you want.

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
            • 5 months, 1 day ago
      2. Or barKing nil miss?

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
  19. Aside from the Fantasy iTeam and the mcdonalds game, is there any other good platform out there?

    • 5 months, 1 day ago
    1. SH

      Mirror's Fantasy Rules look good or maybe Telegraph

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
  20. No one said me joining Nate was a conspiracy. :shock: :shock: :shock:

  21. Fabregas > Liverpool rumours gathering pace :wink:

    • 5 months, 1 day ago
    1. Fabregas is everywhere these days, funny how the press have 2 stories with the same rumour, with City stealing from whoever is buying ;)

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. Supposedly Wenger has said he doesn't want him as he's to similar to Ozil..If Yaya were to leave Fabregas would be an ideal replacement..And supposedly we won't be held to ransom over Lallana and may go for Fabregas instead..

        Supposedly ftw

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
        1. Supposedly is a newspaper's best friend at this time of year.

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
          1. Indeed..Damn them for getting ones hopes up

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
    2. I do hope so. Overpricing Lallana was a master stroke by our board ;-)

      And come on Fabregas > Lallana, any day.

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. He's going no matter what :) You must be a worried a supporter with all the out talk..

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
        1. I can't see many teams paying £30m for him.

          I am worried, yes. But I do wonder how much of the extra talk (Schneiderlin, Wanyama, Clyne) is just PURE media speculation because we don't have a manager etc. I think we may lose a few but I think things will look much better once we have a manager installed.

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
          1. If Lallana,Lambert and Lovern all come to us you can always support us

            • 5 months, 1 day ago
            1. *glare*

              • 5 months, 1 day ago
            2. Are Liverpool only going for players whose names begin with L?

              Don't think there's room for Lukaku, but Lloris could be useful.

              • 5 months, 1 day ago
  22. Q
    in mcdonalds rules it says forward gets 1 point bonus for 80% attempt rate.
    80% of what?

    • 5 months, 1 day ago
    1. 80% of shots on target. An absurd rate tbh.

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. I mean nearly every def/mid will be able to get 80% passing, nearly no one will get 80% of their shots on target.

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
        1. agree, suppose if they only have 1 or two shots and both are on target then they get bonus.
          It is only a point so not big issue. Just thought strangely worded

          • 5 months, 1 day ago
    2. Presume it's shots on target

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
    3. Shot accuracy would be my guess

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
    4. 4 out of 5 is really high, suppose it is only 1 point

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
    5. Good for Italian strikers...

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
  23. what is all these teams that people are on about?what does it involve? i think ive missed something :/

    • 5 months, 1 day ago
    1. top of articles on the right will explain, plenty of places left

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
      1. thank u sir

        • 5 months, 1 day ago
  24. Who do people consider essential to their WC FF squads?

    • 5 months, 1 day ago
    1. Depends which game.

      • 5 months, 1 day ago
  25. @SANIUL

    • 5 months, 1 day ago
