    This is a team haven't change in two days now.
    Trying to eat all the pie in matchday1.

    Hradecky Bachman
    Torres Kjaer Denayer Wijndal Bednarek
    Eriksen Torres Jota Berardi Wijnaldum
    Lukaku Lewandowski Arnautovic

      Lewan too much cash. He's playing for poland. Not BM

        Poland has a good fixture I'd rather have Lewa than a French or an English. Lewa is their best player very happy with this pick as it is my main differencial around here and in my local league.

          True. Don't get me wrong, he's been in and out of my team before I settled on Che. I think CR7 is a must for Round 1, purely as he's last to play and best captain option for that MD

            Happy with Jota (until I spot message saying he is not nailed will need to monitor), couldnt find alternative to Lewa.

          Failed in euro 16 and wc 18 and personally been burned in the past so will avoid. Best of luck though

            he was in my team one of those as well and I still go for him doom to fail again.

      Arnautovic probably won't start. But otherwise that is quite good.

      1. Meimei
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        I read that Arnautovic created many opportunities in their last friendly, he hit the bar, could have score 2. He play only last 20 as he is coming back from injury. But he could start in the euro. They really need him.
        This was the hardest inclusion.

          Not worth the risk imo. There are other value forwards you could go for.

          1. jayzico
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 16 days ago

            Like Che Adams!

      Cheers for the opinions

  2. Dr. Rog

    Hradecky Woj
    Spina Kjaer Maele Bednerak Torres
    Berardi Currasco Olmo Torres Jota
    Immobile Lukaku Depay

    3 Italy, 3 Spain, 2 Belgium, 2 Danes, 2 Poles, 1 Dutch, 1 Portugal and 1 enabler

  3. Bring the Cavalry

    Just decided I’m going to do a team for the euros.
    First draft, what’s wrong with this team, what is the method for the transfers for each match day, captains etc?

    Krul hradecky
    Denayer wijndal Torres Kjaer Spinazzalo
    Chiesa Torres debruyne(or is he out?) Nego 6m
    Lukaku Depay Lewandowski

    Cheers for any help

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

      De bruyne is out for the first game, spend the savings on a reliable goalie (still up in the air if Krul starts) instead of Hradecky and then beef up the midfield

      1. Bring the Cavalry
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Nice one cheers mate.
        Is Jota out not seeing him in any teams?

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

          short term injury, potentially available

  4. fenixri

    How essential is Eriksen? Do you think he is worth investment of 9mil?

    Is it too risky to go without player on last day of MD1? Only CR7 is viable option if you are targeting MD1 squad but his price is something.

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

      Not essential at 9m imo.

      Ronaldo is amazing to own for the last day purely because of his reliability. You can sub out your worst player quite confidently knowing that Ronaldo will get something on the last day.

        +1

        After watching Eriksen in his last friendly Im giving him a miss.

    2. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Possibly in the top 5 most essential players in this tournament. Denmark are dark horses

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

        The price is just a bit high for him to be 'essential' imo.

        He's 7.0m in FanTeam and is in like 90% of my teams.

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

        Top 5 essential? Doesn’t even make my team of 15

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

      I dont know about Eriksen. If it were a league season he would be in the team straight away just because if the team scores he is going to be involved 50% of the time. But not sure the Danes are going to be free scoring / explosive enough and 9mln is a lot for a player who shares a captaincy day with Lukaku.

      1. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        I have followed Denmark's qualifying (I live here now) and have a cheeky bet on them as dark horses (as jayzico points out above), they have had a phenomenal qualifying campaign - the problem from a fantasy manager perspective is that they are solid well drilled team but no real "star" players. Yep Eriksen is the most "star" out of them and will be involved (remember his hatrick vs Ireland) but yeah 9m is allot - I really cant decide to include him or not :/

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

          solid drilled team with no real star players implies
          invest in the team i.e. defence

          conversely, unsettled team with a standout star player
          invest in the man e.g. Depay

          and then you have England, who seem to be neither as the star man plays as a DM half the time

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

      Cr7 has a 90% chance of returning MD1. Let that sink in

    5. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Interesting comments. Food for thought. Cheers. Don't know who would take his place though. Jota? Not going anywhere near Pogba. Insigne?

      1. jayzico
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Hmm. Gnabry perhaps

  5. LangerznMash
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    I'm totally avoiding group D and group F players until the knockout stage. They are either too unpredictable or will be wasted on your bench in my opinion.

    Lewandowski (c), Lukaku, Depay
    Eriksen, Insigne, F.Torres
    Wijndal, Kjaer, P.Torres, Denayer
    Courtois
    (Hradecky, Alioski, Yazici, Nego)

    Pretty happy with this, lots of goals and clean sheets.

  6. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Already have Yazici - need another nailed 5.5m midfielder for the bench - Kante?

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

      Alaba if you must, but probably better to make the saving elsewhere

    2. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Rodri. He could still get the odd cross in - like jorgino for chelsea

  7. Society
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Think I've settled on a line-up.
    Don't know world football well enough to be confident of picking the teams to progress during knockouts, so being different, not using chips during group stages, so this is the md1, md2, md3 squad with 2 transfers per md.

    Mertens, Depay
    Insigne, Perisic, Malinovskiy, De Jong, F.Torres
    Spinazzola, Meunier, Maehle
    Cakir
    Krul, Alba, Moreno, Gosens

    Barasic replaces Maehle md2 & 3 providing I have no fires to put out.
    Typical captaincy chain ; Insigne, Depay, Perisic, F.Torres.

    1. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      I also like Perisic. Him or Eriksen? I'm taking the latter for first game purely on the basis they play Finland. And Perisic England.

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

        I didn't want the 9.0m for md2 Jayzico. I'm not confident Peresic will return vs England, but he was the better of the two evils, allowing me to save a md2 transfer, 0.5m, & still focus on midfield captains.

    I know that for some weird reason people on this site don't appear to like discussing betting/gambling, but if you're on this forum and intend to play Fantasy for the Euros, you MUST play FanTeam if you are eligible. It's an almost unmissable opportunity.

    The tournament has 1.15M guaranteed and so far has less than 200K in prize pool gathered. The plan is to pay the top 10,000 players or so, and so far, there haven't even been 9,000 registered. Something like 90% of teams will make it in the money when everyone has registered and if you have even a smidge of knowledge about fantasy and do a bit of research, which you likely do since you're here, you literally don't like money by not playing this game imo.

    Just a heads-up for anyone that is on the fence. There is so much value here. Look into the rules, do the math, and it's like seeing money on the floor ready to be picked up.

      Know what the regional limitations are for eligibility?

      Wow how do I get paid to say this too

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

        I have not been paid. It's just basic math.

          • 11 Years
          3 months, 16 days ago

          I think the game has its flaws and entering multiple teams is unpalatable to people, but the value here is surely too good to pass up and since I've been a part of this community and see value here, I feel obliged to share.

          I’d have just kept it to myself, if more people join that’s less chance you’re getting winnings now. That’s the basic math to me

            Yeah well if everyone was hoarding their information for a tiny edge we wouldn't have a community of Fantasy Football players now, would we?

                Same for FPL really. The prizes are just not 'official' 😉

      Hey Camzy. You may have sold this to me. Just don't like the idea of monitoring several teams, let alone 2. Hmm.

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

        Yeah it's gonna be 'work' so to speak but it's free money doing a hobby imo so it's a no-brainer imo.

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

          I didn't share it because I don't want to be a 'shill' but there are signup bonuses and referral links and all that.

    5. King Kohli
      • 8 Years

      Is it restricted to players only from the UK?
      How do you get paid if lets say yiu don't have a PayPal account and are from Asia?

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

        I'd check the terms and sign up rules. Obviously differs for each country since it's a betting company.

        Eligible to UK, Germany, and some other European countries primarily.

  9. gart888

    Thoughts on this template team for MD1? 0.5 to spare, suggestion on where to spend it?

    Lukaku(C2) - Depay(C3)
    Sabitzer - Gini - Alaba - Berardi(C1)
    Maehle - Kjaer - Wijndal - Alioski
    Hradecky

    Bachmann - Torres(C4) - Torres - Ronaldo(C5)

    1. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Don't know sh*t about Sabitzer. But I do know I'd rather have Eriksen, Perisic or Jota over him

      1. gart888
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Sabitzer is just me targeting North Macedonia. He's Austria's 10 and could well be involved in some goals that game.

        Perisic I'm avoiding because he's facing a good English squad. Eriksen I'd like but can't afford. Jota is a possible shout. We reckon he's pretty nailed on?

        1. jayzico
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 16 days ago

          Really not sure. To be safe I've just taken CR7 + Cancelo.

  10. Lemonade
    3 months, 16 days ago

    hey there - anyone going for Sancho? could still take him out but I feel he'll surprise us all and be England's main man

    my second option would be Kingsley Coman (I'm french and he looks a threat)

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

      England wingers are a clear avoid

      Coman not even nailed on though?

      1. Lemonade
        3 months, 16 days ago

        not as a starter he isn't but DD usually likes to sub him in early in the second half and that's when he starts being a menace to the opposition

        also (although it's not good enough a reason) he looked more at ease than any other players in the friendly against Wales

  11. jayzico
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    The more I google "spain's predicted lineup' - like most of you are probably doing, the more I see Olmo as a starter as we get closer to kick off.

    More will be revealed tonight I suppose. Hope Morata has another stinker, or an injury. Sorry Alvaro.
