    Any articles/hot topics related to the fanteam game? Specifically looking for strategy/advise if one is entering multiple teams in the game

        Thanks Az

    Is de Bruyne going start first game?

    1. Neves say Neves
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      apparently not

      1. Hungaryman 2021
        3 months, 16 days ago

        should we fancy Tielemans then if thats the case?

    It would be great for Dykes to score the winner, against England.

    An Aussie playing for Scotland, that would be rich material indeed!

    Any glaring issues at this point? Granted, it's quite template.

    Hradecky / Schlager
    Bonucci, Denayer, Kjaer / Wijndal, Torres
    Eriksen, Torres (C4), Berardi (C1), Wijnaldum / Négo
    Ronaldo (C5), Lukaku (C2), Depay (C3)

    MD2/MD3 Limitless & WC.

    If Berardi doesn't start, Berardi + Wijnaldum > Chiesa + £7m (or less) MID. Which could give opportunity to upgrade Schlager.

    I know some don't like putting in an enabler, but there should be enough starters given it's only for one week?

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Enabler is grand if you can sub him out when he probably won't get you points. Might even be worth keeping in your 11 because his two points are better than another player's one pointer.

      1. amplifiedAnt
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Fair point. Imagine the temptation to re-roll will be too great, but if I don't start him those 2 points are lost forever (barring a bench disaster).

    2. Neves say Neves
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      If Chiesa starts you could downgrade Wijnaldum to Elmas and upgrade Schlager to Donnarumma?

      1. amplifiedAnt
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Yup, something along those lines. Was pondering on whether an Italian or Spanish defensive double is too much, but I'm not convinced there's a better option.

    3. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      The glaring issue is Nego, but if you are happy to play 14 choose 11, rather than 15 choose 11, then its perhaps an acceptable compromise to make

    4. Fit of Pique
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Bachmann is the starter for Austria now.

      1. amplifiedAnt
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Ooft, good catch. Thanks. May be enough uncertainty there to avoid.

    zinchenko on penalties
    BOOM!

    1. Neves say Neves
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Did Yarmo get subbed off or something?

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        no

  6. Neves say Neves

    Best forward under 10.0 mil? For LL MD2 WC QF

  7. OLA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Cant stop thinking of my draft. Any thoughts or comments are really welcome.

    Donnarumma
    Bonucci, Denayer, Kjaer, Wijndal
    F. Torres, Wijnaldum, Berardi
    Kane Lukaku Depay

    Sub Hradecky, P. Torres, Nego, Jota.

    Still doubting about Kane, Wijnaldum and the price of Bonicci

    Best 5m or 4.5m midfielder who will play?

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      get A DEF RATHER

  9. Fit of Pique
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Any takers for Marshall at £4.5m?

  10. Disco Stu
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Better choice for GW 1

    A. Lukaku(Russia)

    B. Lewandowski(Slovakia)

    1. Fit of Pique
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Lukaku. Much, much better team around him.

  11. Pukki Blinders
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    So Yarmolenko is on pens, absolutely useless...

    There goes the Malinovski pick then

  12. Milkman Bruno
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Considering pumping my funds into the best XI I can for MD1 with the view to LL in MD2 and WC in MD3 or vice versa.

    Thoughts on this XI:

    Simon
    J.Alba, Cancelo, Bonucci, Spinazzola
    Insigne, Torres, Jota
    Lukaku, Ronaldo, Wind

    Hradecky, Kjaer, Alaba, Nego

  13. DAZZ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Eriksen (9.0) better value than Insigne (8.5)?

    1. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      has to be due to the pens/fks, and fixture etc

    2. Hungaryman 2021
      3 months, 16 days ago

      I currently have Insigne and somehow can't get myself to get *that* excited over Eriksen... would rather take a punt on Braith/Poulsen

  14. Dr. Rog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Asking for a friend... best MD1 score.

    A) Ronaldo + Nego
    B) Jota + Danish/Austrian 7.5 fwd

    Lets
    1) assume both scores count (because most teams will have more than enough blankers already to fill their subs bench)
    2) no captaincy (as someone like Lukaku/Depay has already hauled)
    3) assume option B is nailed (as players could easily be changed)

    1. DAZZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      For me i don’t think Ronaldo is worth 12M, The reason i have moved to Lewandowski. Ronaldo plays day 5 MD1, chances are, you’ll have a captain haul by then, you shouldn’t need to captain him. Depay for 2M less is a better option, with better fixtures, Ronaldos fixtures are tough.

      1. Dr. Rog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        same question applies with Lewa I think. many teams opting for Nego, I've thought about doing it myself and I reckon it comes down to a call between A & B above.

        1. DAZZ
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 16 days ago

          In your circumstances between A + B i’d probably go Ronaldo, i wouldn’t chance anyone from Denmark bar Eriksen, and i’ve no idea how nailed Jota is, he may not start, Portugal are a minefield

          1. Dr. Rog
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            3 months, 16 days ago

            see assumption 3

    2. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      its not about the players. the point is can Ronaldo on his own expected to outscore two middling options? thats the point.

      1. DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Ronaldos recent international form isn’t flattering

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      B.

      Use your subs.

    Robin Gosens (5.0) defender starting LW in a 3-4-3 in a german team that looks like it could be their first XI.

    Germany team to play Latvia.

    Neuer

    Ginter Hummels Rudiger

    Kimmich Kroos Gundogan Gosens

    Havertz Muller Gnabry

  16. Hungaryman 2021

    Thoughts on Shaqiri as a differential mid?

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      not for me

    2. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      good option for a LL2 team.

  17. 03farmboy
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    What players in each position are must haves would you say?

    For me
    Striker- Lukaku
    Mid-
    Def- Italy defender
    Gk-

    1. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      the Torres pair.

      At least they are the 4 players that have never left my draft

      1. 03farmboy
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        I currently have Torres in my midfield but I have meunier and Dumfries plus an Italy defender over Torres for Spain

    2. Fletch69
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Lukaku isn't a dead cert. No De Bruyne (match 1) and Hazard not in form will hurt. Playing away in Russia and then a tough Danish Defence it's not an easy start. Kane and Depay would top my lists for Forwards.

  18. Henning
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Hmmm do i get this right?
    If i start a keeper that plays on day one and he does bad.
    Can i swich to My beenc keeper if he plays for lets say day 2?

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      yes

      1. Henning
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Thanx.
        Is it same for all beench players?

    Ukraine to shock holland

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      I'm kinda pissed this friendly was such a good advertisement for Ukraine.

      I had Malinovskyi and Matviyenko in my draft and was quietly happy they were going under the radar.

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        I watched Ukraine last friendly and Yarmolenko could have scored a couple. Now he has.

        1. DAZZ
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 16 days ago

          Yarmolenko and Ukraine could be great options with LL MD2

      2. Richarlidad
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Malinovskyi couldn't score against a 10 man Cyprus. Matviyenko is a defender up against a Holland team likely to score.

        Your picks will stay well under the radar, don't worry mate.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 16 days ago

          Both of those picks are not ideal for MD1. They are for MD2. I'm fairly committed to Limitless in MD3.

        2. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 16 days ago

          nothing wrong with Zinchenko and Yarmolenko
          Dutch are crap in defending and should have conceded vs Georgia

    2. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      could easily happen.
      also expect England to shock Croatia

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        England shock Croatia? England are clear favourites mate

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Wouldn’t even call that a shock after seeing the current state of the Holland team

  20. Eat my goal!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Is KDB likely to start?

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      doubt it

  21. 03farmboy
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Best three defences for group stages?

    I’m currently thinking Italy, Belgium, Holland

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Clearly joking when you mentioned Holland

      1. 03farmboy
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        I feel like they have a easy group and the wings back have attacking potential

    2. Milkman Bruno
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Italy, Portugal/Denmark and Spain

      1. 03farmboy
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Which player would you recommend from each team?

  22. Swans3aJ4ck
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    So…here we go. Keep making tweaks but keep coming back to this. Not sure about Subitizer.

    Donna / Hrad

    Spin / Mæhle / Denayer / Winjdal / P Torres

    Subitzer / Colwell (won’t play much but is a striker if he comes on) / Beradi / Olmo / Jota

    Depay / Luk / Ronny

    Any advice / suggestions appreciated

  23. 03farmboy
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Name players that have never left your draft teams?

    For me:
    Lukaku, Ronaldo, Eriksen, Torres, meunier, Donnarumma

    1. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      P. Torres
      Jota
      F. Torres
      Mount
      Ronaldo
      Lukaku

    2. dirtmcgirt
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Spinazzola p Torres, and Jota, but I'm definitely keeping maehle and Berardi until the team sheet is named. I'm a terrible tinkerer. Team changes every half an hour.

      1. 03farmboy
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Would you rather have Spinazzola over Bonnuci?

  24. HollywoodXI
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    GTG?

    Hradecky Bachmann
    Maele Kjaer Spinazzola P.Torres Denayer F.Torres Insigne Carrasco Berardi Alaba
    Ronaldo Lukaku Depay

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Yes I like this team- provided Berardi starts gtg

  25. Moxon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Jota, F. Torres, Denayer, Maehle, Wijndal, Lukaku

      Like it haha what’s rest of your team?

  26. Fletch69
    3 months, 16 days ago

    After watching the 10 metre Springboard champion, Jack Grealish, over the last couple of games, surely Kane is going to get a few penalties

  27. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    A) Immobile + Wijnaldum
    B) Deepay + Insigne

    1. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      B comfortably.

  28. artvandelay316
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Hradecky
    Bonucci, Kjaer, Wijndlum, Alioski
    Erikson, Mount (c3), Insigne (c1), Berardi
    Lukaku (c2), C. Adams

    Subs
    Bachmann, P. Torres, F. Torres (c4), CR7 (c5)

    My final squad ...until I change my mind again.

    1. Hungaryman 2021
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Love that double Italy mid - wanted to go for a similar approach but found it hard to let go of Depay...

      1. artvandelay316
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Yep me too. Had him and really struggled with the decision. The only thing that convinced me is Scotland are at home and I reckon Adam's could get a goal, plus Insigne and Berardi both look great and I think offer better potential than my midfield setup with Depay.

  29. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3 months, 16 days ago

    Is Arnautovic a good option for MD1 game v North Macedonia and MD 3 v Ukraine ? Looked sharp with couple of decent shots last night ? Allows this squad which quite like?

    Bachman Hradecky
    Bonucci Denayer Wijndal P Torres Kjaer
    Eriksen Insigne Jota F Torres Elmas
    Lukaku Depay Arnautovic

  30. trinzoo
    • 7 Years

    Denayer with any attacking potential?
