    New Pro Pundit Andy (see hot topic) and I recorded a Group A preview video for anyone interested:

      Hey AZ,
      Love it! Thanks!

      Maybe I missed it, but to me it seemed like you did not consider the fact, that the lineups for the first match (Turkey - Italy) will be available to us before the GW kicks off.
      The same thing applies to Finland - Russia (GW 2) & Switzerland - Turkey (GW 3).

      Would help many of us picking our 2-3 Italian guys for the first GW! Chiesa/Insigne/Immobile/Belotti/Spinazzola/Bastoni/Bernardeschi 😀

        Great point!

    So who's getting Everton gig now ?
    Big Sam or Tony Pulis ?
    Maybe Frankie L ?

      Nuno?

      They should appoint Sarri tbh. There are a lot of players at Everton who don't have the right mentality / disciplined attitude IMO to get them higher up the league.

      I look at players like Iwobi, Davies, Richarlison, DCL (to some extent), Kean (when he was there) and think why aren't you kicking on to the next level?

      You could see Ancelotti was getting annoyed with the attitude at the end of this season just gone. The loss to Sheff Utd epitomised it.

      Best way to spend £12M on 2 midfielders? Struggling! Currently on Mount Chiesa Torres

      I've completely abstained from all Euro fantasy previews, talks, shows everything.

      Just had a few hours just now to put together a team after going over the rules in depth. What am I missing?

      Schmeichel
      R. Rodriguez Blind Kjaer Alioski
      Foden De Jong Soucek
      Lukaku Seferovic Yilmaz (C)
      (4m Torres Dias Jota)

      1. diesel001
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Foden might not start?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          I think he's the most nailed on England attacker after Kane tbh.

          1. Freshy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Best 1 on 1 attacker in the squad IMO

          2. diesel001
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            I think Foden should start. But this is Southgate. A guy who said "If I could have picked five or six right-backs I would have done."

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              Risk I'm willing to take. I think an English player is best for captain that day so figure I'll take the punt.

              Captaincy order is Yilmaz > Lukaku > Foden > Torres > Jota

              I quite like it and will ensure I get at least one good captain imo. 2+ attacking returns means I stick.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        2 months, 4 days ago

        De Jong over Berghuis/Wijnaldum?

        I think you could downgrade Dias/Rodriguez there and upgrade one of the attackers.

        What's chip strategy?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Limitless on two as with everyone else... It's basically 3 free hits in a row.

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            I'm thinking of saving wildcard for the transition between R16 to QFs. That could be tricky to manage with only 3 FTs and 8 teams getting knocked out.

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Fair. Berghuis does look pretty good.

          Could do Dias, Rodriguez, Seferovic, Foden > Lewandowski, Mount, Torres, Fonte

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Yeah that looks much better imo hopefully Pau is nailed. Maybe you could find a way to stretch Lewa to Ronaldo or Kane.

        I have resisted so far.

        Wondering whether to just take a break from Fantasy Football until the new season starts.

          So have I. Last weeks made me fpl fatigued, but overall it was nice to have a hobby during lockdown. I think I will just enjoy the summer and wait for the new season to start.

            Or perhaps funny casual approach might be fun 😉

          A decent team lok

        Current draft

        Donnarumma (Hdrakey)
        Bonucci Kjaer Denayer Torres Bednerak
        Hazard Insigne Eriksen Shaqiri Berghuis
        CR7 Arnie Moreno

          nice, prefer Lukaku over Haz though

          1. Dr. Rog
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            they play in different positions.

            its Lukaku or CR7, which isnt an easy choice!

        2. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Is Moreno nailed?

          1. Dr. Rog
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            its Moreno or Weghorst for that slot at the moment. will check out the friendlies. one thing to bear in mind is its not the end of the world to have a 2nd string striker for a 1&3 GW squad, as they may get rotated in for the final fixture if qualified

        Haven't played a game like Euro fantasy before but... do the substitutions mean that I should never have a player on my bench who plays before a player in my starting line up?

        Choose three out of these:

        A) Eriksen
        B) Wijnaldum
        C) Jota
        D) Bilva
        E) F.Torres

          I have doubts about Youri Tielemans in my team but I don't know which midfielder to pick instead (Thomas Lemar, Mario Pašalić)? Moreover, is my team anygood?

          My team:
          GK: G. Donnarumma.
          DEF: J. Denayer; S. Kjær; D. Blind.
          MID: Van De Beek; G. Bale; F. Torres; D. Berardi.
          FOR: Luuk de Jong; A. Belotti. H. Kane.

          SUBS: J. Pickford; J. Stones; Pepe; Y. Tielemans.

            • 3 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Don't think Belotti is nailed, Immobile likely to start up top.

          2 months, 4 days ago

          Southgate has low key nailed it with that squad

          The general shiteness of the selection has led to an almost complete absence of the usual “England actually have quite a decent team this year”, and “England actually have a great chance this year” bollocks

          Gaz playing 4D chess over here

          Either that or people have finally realised how bad they are

            I haven’t really followed International football much lately, so I have no idea who’s good and who isn’t.

            Who do you think will win it?

            1. DavidBadWillie
                2 months, 4 days ago

                France and Portugal are the two best teams. England probably third in recent years. Holland, Spain, Italy & Germany not so good.

                1. Sgt Frank Drebin
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 4 days ago

                  Yeah I actually agree, England has a very good team, I would maybe even say that the 2nd best after France. In my opinion they are always behind other good teams in terms of tactical preparedness though.

                  1. DavidBadWillie
                      2 months, 4 days ago

                      Very true, we’d somehow mess up against any of the mentioned teams.

                        2 months, 4 days ago

                        FRANCE, BELGIUM.. (ENGLAND. PORTUGAL)
                        NETHERLANDS..
                        ( GERMANY.. SPAIN)..
                        ITALY.
                        CROATIA. DENMARK
                        TURKEY. WALES SWEDEN that order

                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 3 days ago

                  I think if Kane can have a good tournament England will well. Leaving out the great Lingardino has given the clueless something else to talk about.

                Best 5m mid? On Rodri but he's a tad defensive. Can't go any higher, and got Alaba for 5.5 anyway.

                Cheers guys

                  Not much at that price- Dennis Zakaria of Switzerland ? Or Ampadu of Wales in same game possibly more attacking?

                  I'd be tempted to go for Hojbjerg. I think he plays a more attacking position for Denmark, he's also playing early so if he does nothing you can sub him out.

                Hi Everyone,

                I'd really appreciate some feedback on my Euro 2020 team. I've basically the same chip strategy in mind as many of you on here. Thanks very much for your help!

                Schmeichel

                Kjaer Bonucci Denayer Bednarek

                Foden De. Jong Hazard

                Lukaku Kane Lewandowski

                Bench: Hradecky, Nego, Celik, Holes

                1. lugs
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 4 days ago

                  bench is far to weak tbh, i'd downgrade Kane and spread the funds since he has arguably the toughest opening game, you could always bring him back in in gw 2 if using the limitless chip, and he could be rested gw 3 if England are already through by then

                2. The Son-dance Kid
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 4 days ago

                  I had Lewa in my euro 16 and wc 18 fantasy teams and he disappointed massively. Poland not the same as bayern. Personally I'd keep Kane and ditch Lewa

                  1. Laurent Robert
                    • 3 Years

                  Any fantasy Euro mini league here for me?

                  Also, Ancelotti ran away from Everton Lmaooo. Must be a sad news for my buddy, Irbox

                  2 months, 4 days ago

                  Surely if Ancelotti can only manage 10th with Everton, then surely they will be relegating contenders without him.

                    Their points tally would have seen them finish well above 10th in the previous season.

                    Lots of work to be done at Everton. It’s clearly a long-term project. We’d hoped Carlo would be the man for the job.

                    They’re only 3 or 4 players away from being a decent squad.

                        One player who definitely won’t be going is Richarlison

                        Carlo tried to give him the little “he’s one of the most talented players I’ve ever worked with” motivational talk pre-season (as he so often does) ut Richarlison must have just totally taken it the wrong way

                        Some of the most wretched performances I’ve ever seen this year - single handedly breaking down attack after attack after attack

                        Surely must be up for worst player of the season award....

                  Foden, Gnabry or F Torres?

                    • 5 Years
                    2 months, 4 days ago

                    Torres probably the most nailed and better fixtures.

                      • 2 Years
                      2 months, 4 days ago

                      I can see any of them scores well when got minutes regardless the fixtures ... Torres most nailed? I thought it's Gnabry, interesting.

                      1. Karan14

                        2 months, 4 days ago

                        Gnabry against France is not a great option imo.

                            Totally agree France one of the best defences.. No matter who they playing. Almost guaranteed to have players in final IMO

                            Lingard should be in that team ahead of Sterling. Southgate is clueless

                                On current form I agree.. But sterling cud be explosive that's probably why.. Class permanent.. Form temporary is where the clueless Southgate is coming from mate IMO

                                Lingard scored 9 in 10 games then didn't score at all in his last 6, as teams found him out. Sterling has consistently scored 10 or more goals in the last 5 league campaigns, Lingard has never scored 10 in one league campaign. Lingard couldn't even get a game for United, sterling is a regular for a much better team. There is a reason why Southgate is manager mate.

                                    “It’s not coming home” mate. Sterling is too wasteful to be in the euros. Wasn’t he in the last euros in 2016, How did he perform?? Go & count the number of big chances he missed last season, in a major tournament that will easily screw the team up, it isn’t a league you know.

                                    I am not saying Sterling shouldn’t be in that squad tho but I’ll definitely pick Lingard over him or ahead of someone else, little details count.

                                    Let’s just watch how they flop

                                    Pretty much agree - although it’s not even that teams “found him out” as much as his insanely streak came to an end

                                    Lingard is like a (much) shitter version of Sterling, and that’s saying something as Sterling has been getting shiiiiiiite these last few seasons, he’s been on a noticeable downward trend ever since his first season at City (Attacking returns: 35 > 32 > 26 > 19)

                                    If Man Utd can get 25-30m for Lingard it’ll be the single greatest piece of transfer business in recent history - just hoping his final 6-7 games doesn’t (re)wake people up to he fact that he’s utter gash

                                    100% sure England won’t win it when their coach makes simple mistakes like this

                                  I understand the captain substitution rule, but I think people should he wary of getting a player in from each match day purely for the purposes of having a captain from each day. 4 strong captain choices I think is enough - 5 is unnecessary if it means compromising your team

                                        OK guys, tell me everywhere I'm going wrong with my current Euros draft:

                                        K. Schmeichel (T. Krul)
                                        P. Torres, S Kjaer, J. Denayer, (O. Wijndal, J. Bednarek)
                                        C. Eriksen, F. Torres, N. Barella, D. Alaba (L. Nego) - I've gone Barella over Chiesa as think he's more likely to start.
