    Is 10m too much to spend on GKs? (Donnarumma/Bachmann)

      I think so. Donnarumma is set and forget. Get 4.0 fodder.

        Different rules in this game. No such thing as set and forget

    Looks like Gareth thinks Hendo has been a naughty little boy stealing that pen!

    Who would you say is the best 4.5 GK from Sunday 13th onwards?

    1. Fit of Pique
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Bachmann of Austria.

        Dimitrievski of North Macedonia is worth a look. Got Austria and Ukraine first 2 matchdays, assuming limitless for matchday 3

      Depay is on fire with his form he has to be a must pick??

      I’m considering taking Kane out and putting him in

      1. Richarlidad
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        The one thing that's stopping me is Ukraine. They don't appear to be a team that will concede very many. With no bonus points, I think a realistic score for Depay will be 2-6 points. Not a captaincy you will bank, and an output that can be matched by 4.5 defenders.

          Thanks appreciate the replay which forwards are you going with?

          1. Richarlidad
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Lewandowski, Lukaku & Adams.

            Still not 100% on Adams... I just know my 3rd forward will be a cheapie.

            1. 03farmboy

              I’m on Lukaku and Ronaldo not sure about 3rd one yet

      England will be lucky to get out the group stage after the last two performances?

      Hendo ...... lol

      1. Richarlidad
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        They will get out the group though... and we already know what people will say when that happens. "They ONLY beat Scotland & Czech Republic, wait until they play xyz"

        They're bottling it already. Hilarious.

        1 month, 27 days ago

        Despite having a good squad I'm not confident because half the players are either out of form/tired or both. Neither of the friendlies have any bearing on that though, they were barely even the second eleven.

        I’m amazed by the negativity around England.

      5. Fletch69
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Give 'em a break, not picking players from Man City or Chelsea. Nowhere near his first 11.

          Having said that I still don't think Southgate is tactically good enough to win anything.

        Top 5 midfielders for goal scoring threat?

        1. 03farmboy
          • 2 Years

          Insigne has to be one

        What do you generally think about these last friendlies as starting line up predictors? These one of the interesting ones so far. What do you think of for example Berardi (ITA)?

        SPA
        - F. Torres and P. Torres started

        POR
        -Jota and Felix started (Bilva Bruno on bench)

        ITA
        -Berardi started (Chiesa on bench)

        BEL (game starting soon)
        - Castagne starting (Meunier on bench)
        - Carrasco starting
        - Is Kdb still resting after injury? What is his status anyway?

        1. BobbyDoesNotLook
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Are teams with UCL final players such that should not analyzed by these friendlies (Foden, Kdb, Bilva out or not playing for example)?

        2. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Spain & Portugal still have one more friendly left so I would base my judgment after watching those games.

          I think Berardi will start he has a much better goal scoring record for Italy than Chiesa. But anyways we will have lineups before deadline.

          Castagne & Carrasco are risks they might get the first game they might not. KDB probably won't make the first game as per Martinez.

          1. BobbyDoesNotLook
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Ah they will still have more games before EC. Surprisingly close to the tournament.

            What do you mean we will have lineups before dl (only Italy or more teams as well)?

            1. Karan14
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Deadline for the Official Euro 2020 Fantasy game is up till the first KO.

              So we will get to see line ups for the all first games of every matchday before deadline.

                Thanks, that is good point and one more thing that makes it a bit different from FPL.

        C Jota

        1. Richarlidad

          I've gone with Jota. Started the last 3 games for Portugal and scored 3.

        Considering balancing it out a bit:

        Hradecky

        Mahle / Kjaer / Denayer

        Eriksen / Torres / Mount / Berardi

        Ronaldo / Lukaku / Depay

        ----
        Bachmann / Alioski / Wijndal / Elmas

        Not keen on Elmas Vs Bachmann but in isolation think they're the two best picks at that price. Thoughts?

        1. Top Dog
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Very similar team to me. I’ve decided to sacrifice my 5th Mid gone for 4m option. That has allowed me following upgrades:
          - Mount > Wijnaldum
          - Bachman > Dom (Ita GK)

          1. Fit of Pique
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            That's the team I had before this one, but I think I prefer having that extra player. More fun (in theory!)

        2. Nomar
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          I think Grealish might be the best England midfielder option.

          1. Fit of Pique
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            I agree, but he's £0.5m more expensive. Still a little uncertain he starts too?

        3. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Double Denmark defense? I dunno, you can do better. Pau Torres is a necessity imo. He's nailed on.

          1. DantheManinaPan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Denmark have highest odds of clean sheet out of any team in MD1. I'm also on the double atm

          2. Fit of Pique
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            I wasn't aware Pau Torres is nailed. If that's the case, I'll be seriously considering him over the double Denmark defence.

            There's also a fun factor to consider - more team spread means more interest in more games!

      10. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Any better option than Wijnaldum for 8m or less? (Not Torres)

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Sabitzer

          1. Fit of Pique
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            I like Marcel Sanitizer as a player but £8m is a lot for an Austria midfielder in a team that doesn't score many

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          He's the most nailed. I think I like risking Grealish actually. He looks a likely starter.

          1. dirtmcgirt
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Me too. He's looked top class both games and I want at least one English player in my team in case my pessimism is placed. Do the right thing Gareth

        Thoughts on my draft lads?

        Szczesny Hradecky
        Bonucci Celik Hinteregger Denayer Wijndal
        Jota Torres Wijnaldum Insigne Llorente
        Kane Lukaku Pukki

        1. Top Dog
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Not a fan of Pukki other than that all good

        2. dirtmcgirt
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Is llorente likely to play much? Suppose he's potentially better value than nego or another bench warmer

      12. DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Best option?

        A) Wijnaldum & Nego
        B) Jorginho & Elmas (Have Berardi)
        C) Tielemans/Tsygankov & Alaba

        Nego will be my only non starter if I get him.

        1. Nomar

        Correct in saying you have unlimited amount of captain changes per gameweek?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Yes, well you can change it each calendar day. But once you move it off a player that's played, you can't out it back on them.

        LL MD3 Team

        Hdarecky Simon
        Spina Denayer Wijndal Torres Fonte
        Jorg Eriksen Mount Malinov Torres
        Lukaku Braithwaite Kane

        Basic thought process
        - Lukaku + Kane most owned players (EO% game on the captain train)
        - Build solid team from established nations
        - Pick differentials that aggressively target the weakest team in the competition. In my view thats Finland (but you could make a case for a few others). Use Free Transfers for the 2 Danes to 2 Russians for MD2 (all players

        1. Nomar

        1. BremerHB
          • 4 Years

          I’d back Eriksen against Finland.

      19. BremerHB
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Where would you invest the remaining 0.5m?

        Hradecky - Bachmann
        Bonucci - Maehle - Denayer - Wijndal - Alioski
        Eriksen - Insigne - F Torres - BSilva - Llorente
        Lukaku - Depay - Kalajdzic

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Llorente

          1. BremerHB
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Who at 5.5 is a better pick? He has attacking pedigree in La Liga and should play either full-back or in midfield. Seems worth a punt for 5m.

            1. Fit of Pique
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              To be honest I don't like any of the £5.5m picks either. Maybe Alaba.

              Your logic for Llorente sounds fine but could you downgrade to Nego and use the £1m saved more effectively?

              I also prefer Jota to Bernardo. Jota is a goalscorer, that's his game. Bernardo a wonderful player but could easily go the whole tournament with no goals or assists.

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Llorente.

          Not a huge of Bernardo as well. He might be a sure starter but he's just not a particularly good fantasy asset.

          1. BremerHB
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Can’t really see any better options for 5.5? Has attacking pedigree in La Liga and should play either fullback or midfield.

            Bernardo Silva seems to be a different beast for Portugal compared to city. Has excellent stats. You reckon Jota is a better pick?

                  the issue I have with his is he doesnt pair well with either Kane or Lukaku (clashes on MD1 and MD2 respectively). ok choice for LL2 teams, not good for LL3.

                  also will be up against a tight ukraine team and austria will probably just go defensive mode as well.

                I've got Berardi, Lukaku, Depay, Lewandowski, Jota.

                This team is 0.5 over budget. Where would you make the saving? Most obvious move for me looks like e.g. Wijndal --> Rivstoski. (Note my plan is LL2, WC3)

                Bachmann, Hradecky
                Mæhle, Kjaer, P.Torres, Denayer, Wijndal
                Eriksen, Wijnaldum, F.Torres, Berardi, Alaba
                Ronaldo, Lukaku, Depay

                    Wijnaldum for me.

                      i was checking out Wijnadum on transfermarkt.

                      he tends to get his goals when he is playing in the #10 position, more recently he has dropped into the double pivot.

                      This was also a potential idea in my thinking, but I don't really know who I'd want instead. Any ideas?

                          Could try cover one of the England boys maybe Grealish?

                      Alaba to Nego gives you 1.5m.

                        Alaba to M Llorente, I think he'll play

                    6. Milkman Bruno
                        1 month, 27 days ago

                        Here is where I am at currently? Thinking Ronaldo to Mbappe MD2 and limitless in MD3. Thoughts appreciated!

                        Hradecky
                        Spinazzola, Kjaer, Denayer, Wijndal
                        Hazard, Torres, Berardi, Alaba
                        Kane, Lukaku

                        Bachmann, Torres, Ronaldo, Nego

                          Do you think hazard starts vs Russia? I’ve got carrasco currently and it seems like they are competing for the same position...

                          1. Milkman Bruno
                              1 month, 27 days ago

                              I don’t know really? I thought he would get the nod but now I’m doubting it. I wanted Kdb but the injury ended that

                        2. That Posh Bloke

                          I'm stuck on Berardi or Chiesa. Anyone got a convincing argument for either? Berardi is left footed and Chiesa right footed, so I guess whether Mancini wants to play one onm the right as an inside forward or a winger will give an idea. But to be honest, I'm a bit stuck...

                          1. Milkman Bruno
                              1 month, 27 days ago

                              You will get the line up before hand but on recent performances Berardi is on top I’d think?

                              1. That Posh Bloke
                                • 4 Years
                                1 month, 27 days ago

                                I think I may go Berardi then. Helps me upgrade a defender.

                            • Neves say Neves
                              • 3 Years
                              1 month, 27 days ago

                              You’ll know which one starts vs turkey before the deadline

                            • GreennRed
                              • 9 Years

                              I picked neither for same reason. Apparently Chiesa's Italian form isn't great. Not sure on Berardi's international form, came off the bench to score in last game a few days ago. But plays for Sassuolo and still made Serie A team of the year. I prefer Berardi but apparently Mancini more likely to pick Chiesa. Might track back better? Turkey are very decent opposition.

                                I think Berardi will start and Chiesa won't. But as mentioned, we'll be able to check before the first match

                              Is Spinazzola too uncertain a pick? Have Bonnuci, trying not to die of boredom.

                              1. That Posh Bloke
                                • 4 Years

                                They have no better left back. Emerson doesn't play for Chelsea.

                                1. GreennRed
                                  • 9 Years

                                  Yes but inexplicably Mancini might prefer Emerson.

                              Is the correct way to set your team up to just have the three players with the latest dates to play on yiur bench. Regardless of position played or cost?
                              Or am I missing something?

                                I guess so. I have Ronaldo and Jota on my bench currently.

                              Not playing so seriously but this is my side at the moment:

                              Krul-Hradecky
                              Trimmel-Torres-Denayer-Wijndal-Ristovski
                              KdB-Torres-Insigne-Baumgartner-Brekalo
                              Lukaku-Memphis-Kalajdzic

                              Some thoughts as someone half-dutch and an avid bundesliga watcher and FBL player:

                              -Memphis picks himself, involved in everything the dutch do
                              - If Berghuis will start he will slot into my side at the expense of Brekalo
                              -I expect a big start for Austria with North Macedonia then Ukraine and I think Trimmel (a sensational crosser of the ball), Sasa (an instinctive, very tall finisher), and Baumgartner (an absolute rising star) are all very good picks. Hinteregger is a decent shout at 4.5 but I will always take the wingback over CB. Alaba is a head scratcher I don't get why everyone is picking him outside of price (I don't see him playing on the wing) and Sabitzer will play deep
                              - Brekalo is playing for a transfer and I expect a big tournament from him and the potential to sneak one past england.
                              - I think Baumgartner will turn some heads and he is my biggest recommendation provided he will start. I expect he will though.

                                Love your team mate, some very fun differentials in there. How nailed is this Trimmel fella? I'd like an Austrian defender but I just don't fancy Hinteregger, he's a bit boring!

                                i like the Baumgartner pick, i watched a good chunk of the Austria game earlier and was impressed by him, my other takeaways were the Keeper Bachmann is quite good and Arnie is miles better than the other guy

                                Why is all the talk of playing the limitless chip in GW2 and setting up your team for GW1 & 3 (excluding anyone with a plan to wildcard in GW3).

                                To me you would set your team up for GW1 & 2, when the games are tighter and more cagey. Any team who gets a point in either of their first two games will always have something to play for in GW3.

                                GW3 should be more open as teams have to go for it to qualify, plus some of the bigger teams who have won their first two games may rotate.

                                Thoughts?

                                      Agree, that's exactly what happened in the 2018 World Cup.

                                      Half the teams in the fantasy comp. ended up with only 7 or 8 playing in Matchday 3
