    Repost for new article

    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

      Keep an eye out for the Italy lineup on Friday. Berardi is favoured to start over Chiesa so you can save 2m there.

      Not sure if KDB is available or not. Eriksen, Insigne and Jota look like good alternatives.

        Nice one thanks mate, I was going to ask is Jota fit? Not seeing him in any teams if he is he is straight into my team

          Yeah he's fit. Played in their recent friendly. He's in my team.

      I think you have picked the best possible front 3 for the group stage fixtures. I would expect all three to be in the running for golden boot and get at least a dozen goals between them before the knockout stage. The 4.5m defenders are great value too.

  2. LangerznMash

    Courtois and Donnarumma both have a realistic chance of keeping clean sheets in all group games.

      Disagree about Belgium. Won't be a walk in the park having to play away against 2 of the host nations with home fans

        Dzyuba is such a threat, no Witsel, no KdB
        Lots of reasons to suggest the hype is overdone

        1. LangerznMash
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Yeah I see your logic and now agree Italy have it slightly more favourable.
          I still think Belgium have lots of cleansheets in them playing an experienced back 5, Tielemans probably an improvement on Witsel if anything.

    2. I Member

      Donnarumma + Hradecky for me.

    3. Vertigo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Donnarumma for me.

  3. I Member
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    Donnarumma
    Denayer, Kjaer, Wijndal
    Insigne (1), Jota, F. Torres (4), Berardi
    Ronaldo (5), Lukaku (2), Depay (3)

    Hradecky; P. Torres, Bednarek, Nego.

    Good to go?

    First draft, would appreciate if you spot any glaring errors such as likely non starters. Looking to have all starters as can sub them in as we go. Would play limitless MD2. So this team is for MD1 and MD3

    Donnarum / Schmeichel

    Torress.. Lainer... Maehle...Denayer...Wijndal

    Torres... Olmo.. Tielemens.. Kante... Beradi (if not playing then will switch to Jorginho or Chiesa

    Lukaku... Depay...Ronaldo

    MD1 captains would be: Beradi / Lukaku / Depay / Torres / Ronaldo

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Is Tielemans a guaranteed starter? Don't think Kante will get you many points.

      1. Hktrader88
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        thanks! I think Tielemans starts. Kante - I was about to write, I think he'll notch up the points in recoveries. But looks like there's no points for recoveries. I was thinking rules were same as Champions League Fantasy. Not much around that price. Could do Alaba for MD1, then switch to Kimmich for MD3.

      Do we think all of Jota, Bilva and Felix start against Hungary?

      1. Dr. Rog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        its 3 of 4 including Bruno isnt it
        possible all 4 if they decide Hungary can be attacked

        1. Joey Tribbiani
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Currently have Jota and Felix in my team because of Silva hasnt featured yet in friendlies

        2. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Jota and Bilva look pretty certain to me. Between Felix and Bruno for the last spot.

        Best Ukrainian option between

        A Tsygankov
        B Malinovskyi

        Best Italian option between

        1 Immobile
        2 Insigne

        1. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          B2

        2. monya
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          A-Tsygankov wont start as long as Yarmolenko healthy. Shevchenko wont switch Tsygankov to opposite side.
          B-Malinovsky 100% starter and will have chances for set-pieces, however once again as long as Yarmolenko is healthy he is penalty-taker. Also, Malinovsky looks less dangerous with national team than in Atalanta.

          out of 1 and 2 I would go with 1. Close call

          so for me its B1

        Why so little love for Kasper on here? Save the 0.5 and double up on a very good defence

        1. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Rather cover Italy defence than double on Denmark and Donnarumma + Kjaer/Maehle is cheaper than Schmeichel + Bonucci.

          1. Chilli Heatwave
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Very good point, think unless that 4.5 starts for Italy will swap up and double Denmark in defence instead

            1. Chilli Heatwave
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              +1 allowed me to free up funds for Mount -> Wijnaldum, cheers!

            2. I Member

              1 month, 20 days ago

              Italy won't have a 4.5 starter unless Bonucci or Chiellini get injured. Even then it might be Acerbi who starts.

        2. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Doubling on Kjaer and Maehle - also Hradecky plays same game and is my second keeper so going Bachmann who is confirmed starter on later day for Austria at 4.5 m v North Macedonia

          1. Chilli Heatwave
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Will do the same now I’m not going Patricio, need to save 0.5 somewhere though to do it

            Hmmm... I feel like with the fixtures I can easily have a good team in MD2 without using Limitless.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Picking a team for MD1 and MD3 as a few teams have good fixtures in both. Limitless MD2.. WC probably for the 1/4s

          1. I Member
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Not worried about mass rotation in MD3?

            1. Hktrader88
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Hadn't actually considered it! I guess theres a choice to WC MD3 if that happens. But also, that would require a team to win the first 2 games, and then not to really care about topping the group.... but that could happen I guess, especially as Belgium may have an easier route coming 2nd!

          Not using them otherwise boring game.

        Which duo is better?

        A. Shaqiri and Wijndal
        B. Jankto and Rodriguez

      6. Chilli Heatwave
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Wijnaldum or Jota? (Have Depay + Ronaldo)

        1. I Member

        Is the COVID situation with the Spanish team changing your GW1 strategy? Seems to me that there's no way to know right now which players may or may not be impacted.

        1. I Member

          It's annoying because Torres x2 look good value.

          1. Pjanić! at the Džeko
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            I had Torres x2 and Simon and tossed them all back. Just don't want to risk the news of positive tests breaking after the GW1 deadline has passed.

            Does this also make the Sweden players potentially a sexier pick?

          Unless we hear differently rest of team tested negative so no changes to strategy for me

          1. Boydinho
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            They all tested negative yesterady thoug, not sure when next test are planned.
            Rumours in swedish press that a Swede has tested positive too, we'll know that in 20 minutes when they have their presser

            The team is bringing in extra reserves, so they aren't acting like they are completely out of the woods. As I said, I don't want to be stuck with a triple Spain allotment only to find out on the 12th that the positive tests have come in.

        Can someone please tell me the teams with the worst defence (the whipping boys) & the teams with the best defence (clean sheet potential)?

          Scotland, right up there with the worst of the bunch ..... but ..... I hear they beat the Czechs in their last three ..... so who is actually worse ? ..... and they're in the same group.

        2. LangerznMash
          • 5 Years

          Belgium = best
          Finland = worst

        3. Indpush

          France - worst
          Finland - best

        What say you, fellow travelers?

        Donnarumma, Hradecky
        R. Rodriguez, Kjaer, Denayer, Wijndal, Alioski
        Chiesa, Foden, Mount, Shaqiri, Yazici
        Kane, Lukaku, Depay

          Not sure on the treble England attack. We have really struggled to create chances lately. Kane dropping deep is worrying.
          Chiesa and Shaqiri not nailed either.
          I like your defence though.

          Swapped Kane and Shaqiri out for C Ronaldo and Soucek. Thanks for the input.

      11. fenixri
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Settled on this atm, not sure what to do if Berardi doesn't start.

        Donnaruma - Bachmann
        Maehle - Kjaer - Denayer - Wijndal - P.Torres
        F.Torres - Perisic - Shaqiri - Berardi - M.Llorente
        Lukaku - Depay - C.Ronaldo

        What you think?

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I would save 1 m with Donnarumma to Hradecky which gives the funds to change Berardi to Chiesa if he starts. I don't think you need that much invested in goalkeepers when we know from Austrian coach that Bachmann certain to start v N Macedonia

        As a non-English, whats with all the pessimism around England at the euros?

        Tempted to double up on both Mount and Kane at the moment... and I can’t see many with any England at all

          That's coz they're old enough to bare scars ..... been burnt before.

            I think Grealish will start, I love him & he's great value ..... but not touching it.

        2. LangerznMash
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          As English, we can be painfully boring to watch. Southgate seems to blunt the creative players and flood the team with defensive minded selections. It is clear he doesnt know his best team, the starting xi probably wont have played together before so will be awkward gelling issues. The entire country wants Grealish, Mount and Foden to play, but he will probably stick with Sterling/Rashford regardless of their poor form.

          1. caldracula

            This

        3. Richarlidad
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Because we have the 2nd worst fans in the world. (Still a long way behind Real Madrid fans)

          It's fashionable to moan about England and particularly Southgate in this country. Despite what you always read on social media about England fans being deluded (It's coming home etc.) - It actually couldn't be further from the truth for the majority. Ask 10 random English people on the street what they think about our chances, and 8 or 9 will say something negative. Even though we have the most talented squad we've had in 15-20 years.

          If you're English, get behind your manager and your country, or support somebody else. Simple.

          1. LangerznMash
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            "or support somebody else" ... you don't just randomly pick your national team! We can still support our country and have doubts about the competence of Southgate. I have no doubt we have the most talented squad in a generation however question how Southgate will use these players effectively based on his past (poor) decisions. I'm full on England fever but not delusionally overconfident of our chances. We will likely meet a major nation from group F in the 1st knockout round (Germany to beat us on pens as always)...

          I just think there are better games to target in MD1. Croatia are a decent side ranked 11 in the world, so this will possibly be quite a cagey low scoring game. Also it's really unclear who will start in Midfield or at FB, which only leaves Kane, the CBs and GK as nailed on. I'm playing the limitless chip in MD2 and will have 3 England players for the Scotland game. I'll also bring in Kane for MD3 against Czech Rep. (as long as he's not rested).

          However for MD1 I'm steering clear of England.

        Schmeichel
        Rodriquez Kjaer Spinazzola
        Torres Wijnaldum Eriksen Berardi
        Immobile Lukaku Depay

        Hradecky, Mings, Nego, Torres

            Not really concerned about that just fancy Denmark to get a couple of clean sheets in 1+3

        Lukaku Immobile (C) Ronaldo

          Which trio to run with?

          Morata, Wijnaldum and Meunier OR Depay, Ferran Torres and Denayer?

          The article on best Austrian players had Schlager as first choice (remains first-choice after starting all World Cup qualifiers this year), but this one suggests Bachmann; anyone know which is more likely? Thanks!
