    Anyone worked out the cheapest likely starting defenders and mids for the Euro 2020 Fantasy Football yet?

      Yes

    Trippier over Trent is a laughable decision, if you want a defensive fullback in bigger games you play Walker, if low blocks are needed to be broken down Trent is invaluable

      My preference would be Reece James or Kyle Walker. Get the trippier inclusion as can play left back also. Would only bring Trent if was more versatile

        I.e. if can drop into cdm, then a good shout. Southgate seems to like versatile players.

      Disagree with both Trippier and Walker. AWB is the best defensive RB England have. Walker has a mistake in him and sometimes his recovery pace is not enough to save him.

      Southgate needs to show some humility and recognise that there are a number of teams that are better than England at the Euros (Belgium, France, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Germany, Netherlands) and if England make it to face these better teams, then there will be a lot of defending to do.

      If England are going to take TAA, Chilwell and Shaw, then a defensive RB is required and AWB is the best choice IMO.

        I agree with TAA/AWB rotation depending on opposition but Southgate obviously has favourites, which is probably why Sterling will gets starts over Foden/Sancho/Grealish

        1. diesel001

          3 months, 24 days ago

          The annoying thing if TAA is left out is that he is probably one of England's most creative players. Top 5 English players in the PL for xA:

          Mount - 9.85
          Grealish - 9.33
          TAA - 8.58
          Kane - 7.58
          Harrison - 7.52

          Of those players playing over 1500 mins in the PL this season, only Grealish, Mount and Foden have a higher xA per 90 than TAA.

          Makes no sense not to take TAA given his levels of creativity.

          From a pure creativity perspective, England ought to be looking at how to get Foden, Mount, Grealish, Kane, TAA and Shaw into the team. If that means having to play Rice, Phillips, Henderson in midfield to secure the defence then so be it.

            Something like this is probably England's best team:

            Pickford
            TAA Stones Maguire Shaw
            Rice Henderson
            Foden Mount Grealish
            Kane

              3 months, 24 days ago

              Does that attack lack a little in pace?

              I do think on current form those four attackers are all vying for a starting place, but I would want either Sancho, Sterling or Rashford in there for pace.

              1. Zen Arcade

                • 3 Years
                3 months, 24 days ago

                Well obviously Kane starts. The other three I mean.

              I stopped at Pickford

              1. diesel001
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 24 days ago

                Who would you start instead? England's weakest position is GK. Henderson and Johnstone are the other options. Pope is injured and cannot be picked.

                1. ivantys
                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 24 days ago

                  Johnstone has probably the best form out of those but Southgate is a fraud he will still start with Pickford and Sterling. I wouldn't have TAA in the harder games out of your back 4 too.

                  1. Zen Arcade
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    3 months, 23 days ago

                    Southgate is a “fraud” because he won’t pick a relegated, uncapped goalie ahead of the goalie who got us to the World Cup semis?

                    I honestly don’t know what people want at times.

                    1. ivantys
                      • 1 Year
                      3 months, 23 days ago

                      Henderson is also in better form, lol let Sterling carry you this euros 😉

      TAA is a fantasy darling but a poor RB. England aren't Brazil 1970 or 2002; they need a RB that can actually defend and fortunately Walker & James can not only do that but offer attacking capability as well.

      Do you have any idea how many ball losses TAA has at Liverpool? Probably not, because you are an FPL manager and all you see are CSs and assists and points hauls. 😆

      1. Zen Arcade
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        He’s certainly not “poor,” but I agree I would not start him at right back in a back four unless I had a world class centre half to cover for him, which we don’t.

        I think Southgate will play a back three if Maguire is out with Walker at RCB like he was in the World Cup. In that case I don’t see why TAA cannot play wingback but maybe that’s a Football Manager type take, too simplistic.

        Heard it all now, "a poor RB" insane take

      3. Bookkeeper

        This is quite a poor assessment by you. Your analysis of Trent is rather basic and clearly shows you don't know what you're talking about. Then again you are anti-Liverpool!. I recall you downplayed Liverpool's achievements in Europe few months ago. Ironic coming from a Chelsea fan who just won their 2nd european cup having spent over 3bn to get there.

        To say Walker can defend, is quite hilarious!

      TAA if England are playing with wingbacks.

    Is there a prize for euro2020 official fantasy?

    I think I’m going to do the fanteam one if not both.

    Would you say wijnaldum or delay are the best asset for Holland (attacking)?

    Hi guys.

    Its been a long long loongggg time I dont see Jonty post here.

    Anyone knows how GI counts in Jonty members table?

    Kane got 23 goals and 14 assists but why his GI is 57?

    23 + 14 + ? = 57

    Thanks in advance

      It's a percentage. He has been involved in 57% of Spurs goals (not sure if adjusted for minutes played or not but doesn't make much difference for Kane)

    Is it just me or is Reece James being completely overrated at the moment? He has great potential but is by no means the finished article. From watching Chelsea this season he has made some big mistakes leading to opposition goals. The FA cup final, the league goal against Leicester and the West Brom game spring to mind. I think there are more but I can't remember them off-hand.

    1. diesel001

      Agree. His defensive failings at Chelsea are covered up by having two fairly defensive midfielders (Jorginho and Kante) and playing three CBs.

      It is a shame Justin got injured as I think he was vying for a place in the squad given his form.

      Decent but I wouldn’t go with alaba, a midfielder who’s likely to play defence or at least defensive is not attractive IMP

      I'm quite highly ranked in the Hall of Farts too, but not quite that high.

    How's this team for GW1? Gonna use Limitless GW2 and WC GW3.

    Krul
    Stones - García - Denayer - Kjær
    Eriksen - Torres - Mount - Witsel
    Immobile (C) - Depay

    (Szczesny, Ronaldo, Dias, Négo)

    I know Witsel ain't a great Fantasy pick, but I guess he is nailed and have a decent fixture. Otherwise easy sub for Ronaldo or Dias who will get subbed in anyway 🙂

    1. Goro Majima
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      I read somewhere Witsel is injured.

    2. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Witsel to Tielemens imo, don't need Dias, all you need are just 4.5 defenders for CS points.

    What teams have the best defence in the euros?

    Italy, Belgium, Holland and Denmark seem good for the group stages

    1. Salarrivederci
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      For GW1 I would also look at Spain, Poland and Portugal

      1. 03farmboy

        Thanks are you playing the sun dream team?

    2. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 24 days ago

      For group stage: Italy, Spain, Belgium, Holland
      Italy have the best defence in the tournament, if there's any team that could go 1-0 all the way it's them. I'm hoping Bastoni starts so i can drag him into my team. Thankfully we could see their lineup before deadline.

      1. 03farmboy
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        Thanks appreciate the reply, who are the best picks defensively for Italy, Holland, Belgium and Spain?

        1. ivantys
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 24 days ago

          I'm only going for the 4.5s in defence which is Bastoni for Italy, Denayer for Belgium, Wijndal and Krul for Holland. I don't think Torres or Garcia are nailed for Spain but you can try them. Need to keep a lookout for Italy's starting lineup before deadline on whether Bastoni starts. If you can afford more money in defence, you can go for the nailed defenders from those countries.

        3 months, 24 days ago

        All depends on chip strategy - I’m using limitless in GW2 so planning mainly for GW1 but with half an eye on GW3. Using any chip in GW3 is a huge risk imo due to teams that have already qualified resting their better players

    F.Torres Chiesa Mount B.Silva Nego

      given that you can stick or twist with subs then i think that value should be spread around the team in this game

      e.g. Nego isnt a good pick. he would be an optimal 3rd bencher in fpl, but in this version the entire bench will be used as you can stick or twist mid week
