    A couple of thoughts

    With Spain and Italy having all group fixtures at home against decent opposition targeting their players looks good option.

    Thinking playing limitless in MD3 might be best plan-we will know Italy Turkey Wales and Switzerland line ups before deadline and will also have idea of which teams need the win to qualify and which teams might rest players

    Is Jorginho fit for the opener? Seems such a low ownership for his price point considering penalties

    1. Baines on Toast...

      I think it's because he was added to the game late.

      1. Chilli Heatwave
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Might explain it, I would prefer him to Chiesa and save the money personally

    2. jayzico

      Hey Chilli, Jorginho yet to be added? No?

    Not really a fan of the triple Italy in that side to target the first match day. Turkey have been very good recently.

    Besides that and Nego it's a pretty strong team. I expect Russia and Ukraine to give Belgium and the Netherlands really hard games too.

    Who was the better wingback for Holland yesterday? Dumfries or Wijndal

  5. Chilli Heatwave
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Think my last decider (minus team preview of Italy) is between Wijndal or Pau Torres. In my head wijndal more likely to start AND he is not playing on the last game day so less risk. What have you gone for?

    1. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Both for me.

  6. jayzico
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Not much change for me today. Just 5 solid captain choices:

    Hradecky.
    Kjaer. Bonucci(c1). Meunier. Wijndal. P.Torres.
    Chiesa. Alaba .Eriksen.
    Lukaku(Cap2). DePay(Cap3).

    Subs: Chezny. Nego. F.Torres(c4). Ronaldo(Cap5)

    1. Chilli Heatwave
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Reasons for Chiesa over Jorginho? Is he defo nailed? Looks decent though.

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Jorginho has nothing except penalties

        1. Chilli Heatwave
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          More nailed also

    2. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Jorge is a DM. Cheisa is an AM.

      Simply that.

  7. 03farmboy

    If price wasn’t a issue which Italy and Holland defender would you pick?

    1. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Bonnucci + De Ligt

    2. Salarrivederci
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Florenzi and Dumfries

  8. artvandelay316
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Hradecky
      Alba, Stones, Bonucci, Alioski
      Foden, Torres, Chiesa (c1), Malinovskyi
      Lukaku (c2), Wind

      Subs
      Krul, Dias, Kante, Kane (c3)

      How's this squad looking?

      1. Hart-ake
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Lose Stones imo! Can't see England keeping many clean sheets.

        1. Dr. Rog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          I like the Stones pick.

          Can see England keeping clean sheets as they set up defensively, and he has an eye for goal.
          Its him or Bonucci for me.

      2. jayzico
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        A LOT in defence. But then I have Bonucci and Meunier (potentially OOP) so fairdos. Krul dodgy. Kante haolding mid. Rubbish FF prospects. Evertone jumping on this Mainovski wagon. Ukraine are gonna get humped.

      Good article Northie.
      I'm worried about using my wildcard in matchday 3 ; perhaps a little rotation for sides qualified, 5m more to spend on wildcard in knockouts, less players to choose from in knockouts narrowing the wildcard fail, and doubles as a surprise knockout cover.

      1. onceuponatyne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        I read the article as us all getting a WC when the group stage ends? I didn't think that was the case until reading it. Anyone clarify?

        1. Chilli Heatwave
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          That is correct yes. “ You can also make as many transfers as you like between the group stage and round of 16.”

          1. onceuponatyne
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Great, I'll definitely use the wildcard as the OP suggests then! 🙂

              1 month, 23 days ago

              The main reason not to is you may need it later in the tournament if you gamble on the wrong teams and a lot of your players go out in the knockout rounds, you may then be unable to cover a full squad with FT.

      Struggling to pick 3 strikers out of Lukaku, Kane, Ronaldo and Depay

      Who are the best 3?

      1. Jambot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Hard to look past Lukaku and CR7 for Matchday 1. I don't have the cash left for either of the other two

      2. Dr. Rog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Im going with Lukaku & Depay for sure. Both are in the form of their life and on pens

        Ronaldo --> Mbappe/Kane looks like a good MD2 transfer as well, but it leads to massive compromises elsewhere

      3. Hart-ake
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Lukaku, Depay and CR7.

        1. jayzico
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          My 3 forwards. Won't change. They are glued to my team for GW1

    • onceuponatyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      From the rules:
      "You only get one Wildcard throughout the tournament, although there are unlimited transfers between the group stage and knockout stage."

      So... are those unlimited transfers, for free, between the group stage and the knockout stage?

      If so, how is that not a second wildcard?

      1. Dr. Rog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        there are essentially 2 wildcards and 1 free hit with an unlimited budget.

    • 03farmboy
      • 1 Year

      Belgium or Italy GK?

      I already have one from each defence

      1. Baron Penguin (FKA Hadebayo…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        I'd probably start with Donnarumma and have a relatively cheap back up in case he doesn't keep a CS

    • Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Is Yazici nailed for Turkey?

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        we will know line up prior to kick off

    • JONALDINHO

      Thoughts on first draft? Rate out of 10

      Schlager • Hradecky
      Meunier • Spinazzola • Wijndal • Kjaer • Torres
      Eriksen • Torres(C4) • Chiesa(C1) • Alaba • Nego
      Ronaldo(C5) • Lukaku(C2) • Depay(C3)

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        no differentials?
        😉

      2. jayzico
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Bar maybe 3 players. This is my team. Like it. Old Bonucci over Spin though. He's on set pieces and occasional penalty I believe,

        All in all great side

    • Baron Penguin (FKA Hadebayo…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Is Bernardo Silva, Jota and Ronaldo too much if using a chip in match day 2?

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        get a def

        1. Baron Penguin (FKA Hadebayo…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 24 days ago

          You're probably right. Still, after this year's FPL position maybe I should take a punt!

      2. jayzico
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Get Patricio

    • anish10
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Foden nailed?

      1. St Pauli Walnuts
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Gareth should be sacked if not.

    • MajesticWok
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Play your Limitless in MD3 not MD2 to take advantage of better fixtures and low ownership differentials.

      Play your WC before the QFs or in MD2 if you want to roll the dice and really attack the groups stages.

      1. Baron Penguin (FKA Hadebayo…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I think limitless has the most value in MD2 where we know all of the expensive assets that we want will be involved. Then use WC in MD3 to cherry pick players from teams with something to play for and with advance knowledge of how all Group A teams will be lining up.

        1. Dr. Rog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          has anyone tried to build a limitless MD2 team yet?

          just thinking about the strikers - Kane (SCO), Mbappe (HUN), Depay (AUS) on paper seem the most desirable.

    • 03farmboy
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Wijndaum, B.silva, Mount, Eriksen, Torres, Alaba,

      Which 4 midfielders would you pick?

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        All good options. Would add Olmo & Jota to the list as well.

        1. 03farmboy
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Don’t know much about Olmo don’t you think Torres is better coverage for Spain

      2. JONALDINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Eriksen Bernardo Torres Alaba

    • Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Best option out of these?

      A) Eriksen & Yazici/Alaba
      B) Olmo & Mount
      C) Bilva/Jota & Elmas

      1. JONALDINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        A imo

      2. jayzico
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Eriksen and Alaba. People are forgetting how key to the team Alba was last time around. (Unless he gets shifted to RB or LB? Can't remember. Gambling on him though)

    • King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Thoughts on this draft?

      Hradecky Krul
      Kjaer Madeleine Denayer Hinteregger Bednarek
      Erikson Torres Chiesa Tielemans Alaba
      Lukaky Depay Ronaldo

      1. jayzico
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Who the hell is Madeline? Denayer a Meh pic. Why's no one interested in Spain defence. Torres x 2 for me

        1. King Kohli
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          That should be Maehle.
          Would like to get Pau Torres if he is nailed which he is unfortunately not.
          Garcia is a genuine threat to his place imo.

          1. jayzico
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            gotcha

          2. jayzico
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Get P. Torres.As good as nailed as the rest of them

          3. St Pauli Walnuts
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Garcia is a threat? Have they never seen him play for City? As a City fan, he is awful. Good riddance.

      Which teams are most likely to keep the most clean sheets in group stages?

      1. korbendallas82
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Netherland,England. I just started reading yesterday.

    • Ricochet
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I'm going with the same chip strategy as the one outlined in this article. Current draft is

      Krul / Marshall
      Guerreiro / Florenzi (C1) / Alba (C4) / Hinteregger (C3) / Maehle
      Eriksen / Berghuis / Chiesa / Alaba / Colwill
      Ronaldo (C5) / Lukaku (C2) / Milik

      Is Pau Torres nailed?

      1. jayzico
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Yes

        1. Salarrivederci
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          We simply can't say that Pau Torres is nailed.
          Tomorrow we might know more, but for now he looks likely to start, but nailed - no.

          1. jayzico
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Bet you a tenner he plays first game

            1. Salarrivederci
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Aight. Then I'll raise you, and also bet a tenner on the following 4.5 good defending options for the first GW:
              Mæhle
              Kjær
              Denayer
              Alioski
              Hinteregger
              Wijndal
              Bednarek

              And just to make it interesting I'll throw a start after Bastoni too.

      Are there any useful tools for downloading/saving data from your FPL season?

      I got my highest ever rank this year and just wondering if there was some way of keeping stats etc, rather than just taking screenshots.

    • Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Choose two out of these:

      A) Chiesa
      B) Mount
      C) Olmo
      D) Zielinski
      E) Malinovskyi

      1. Ricochet
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        At the minute I'd say Chiesa & Malinovskyi, but if it starts to become clear that Olmo will start then Chiesa & Olmo

        I'd tip Berghuis at the same price over most of those options

        1. jayzico
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Why Berhuis? Over Frankie De Jong? Surely the latter. Same price point.

          1. Ricochet
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            I thought Berghuis playing in the front 3 would be likelier to get chances. I'm looking at Paddy Power's anytime scorer odds for the Ukraine game now and they have Berghuis at 7/5 and Frenkie at 9/1

            1. jayzico
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              wow really. Ok cheers dude. Berg IN

        2. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Have Depay already. Berghuis is not nailed if they 5 at the back like they did yesterday.

          Yeah if it looks like Olmo will start then he could be a bargain.

      2. jayzico
        • 10 Years

        First Draft. Kindly help and RMT

        Donnarumma/krul

        Hazard, Chiesa, Pogba,Alaba, Nego

        Need better players instead of Hazard, Nego and Moreno. Any good player other than CR7 who should be nailed in.

          Meunier P. Torres not nailed

          Monitor Belgium friendly if Castagne does well on Sunday Meunier's place is at risk.

          Around here many play Jota from POR

          I like Lewa for first match

          What’s your predicted order of Captains? Italian player on the first night, then switch to Eriksen or Lukaku on the Saturday?

          Ok. You've done well-ish

          What about your choices for next Matchday?

          Another article please.
