    Was going go for meunier or Castagne but it’s a gamble for which one starts, so who’s the best replacement doesn’t have to be Belgium??

    For people that have berardi, what are your plans if he isn’t in team sheet tonight? Any direct replacements? Is Jorginho a good option

      I was about to ask the same question.
      Would be great if the replacement is in the same price range as I have zero in the bank.

      I'll bring in Yazici for €0.5m less if he starts, if not then probably Alaba, not seeing many options available for exactly €6m.

    3. JLAEST

      Jorginho for me

    4. Henning
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      1 m in the bank for that.

    Subject to Italy line up think settled on this team for MD 1. A couple of risks here (Foden and Arnautovic and no Ronaldo) but depth of squad should cover and I don't expect to be needing to put captaincy on Ronaldo in round 5.

    Any feedback welcome. Particularly if you think better to go 1 Insigne and Alaba over 2 Berardi Foden which is fall back anyway if no Berardi in line up tonight?

    Hradecky
    Spinazzola Maehle Denayer Wijndal
    Eriksen Foden* Baradi* (1)
    Lukaku (2) Depay (3) Arnaiutovic

    Schmeichel Jota (5) F Torres (4) P Torres

    Gtg? De ligt a doubt maybe

    Hradecky
    Cancelo, De Ligt, Kjaer, Denayer, Alioski
    Insigne(c), Yazici
    Ronaldo, Lukaku, depay

    Szczesny, kimmich, Jota, Nego

    1. KingRichud
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Holland have a good wingback. Pick him instead of de ligt. £1m cheaper. Wijndal

  6. Pukki Blinders
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    First two matchdays only...

    A. Jankto (SCO, CRO)
    B. Soucek “ “
    C. Dan James (SWI, TUR)

  7. fenixri

    Gtg?

    Donnaruma - Bachmann
    Spinazzola - Kjaer - Maehle - Denayer - PTorres
    Eriksen - FTorres - Berardi - Alaba - M.Llorente
    Lukaku - Depay - Ronaldo

    1. mcpoop
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Is Llorente any good for fantasy points? Isn't Donna and Bachmann a bit pricey?

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

        Llorente is best for that price and I dont want Nego. What other good GK rotation is there?

        1. azz007
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Italy double up risky. Turkey could score. Get rui

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

        Yep, Llorente is maybe best value from mid thus playing defender.

  8. 03farmboy
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    If you had to pick 3 defenders who would you choose?

    Bonucci, meunier, Castagne, Torres, cancelo

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

      Cancelo Bonucci and Torres

    2. paulbongers
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Cancelo, Bonucci, Torres. Definitely not Castagne.

    3. Steager
      • 4 Years

      A) Gosens and puchacz

      or

        2. JLAEST

          Also thinking if I trust the two Spanish…

        1. JLAEST
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Berardi but you’ll see who starts. Neither for me - but Ronaldo if I had to pick

        2. Pukki Blinders
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Berardi Ronaldo easily

        3. Henning
          • 6 Years

          Hi guys! My team is almost ready, but I could use some help. LL in MD2 and WC QF. So this squad is for MD1 and MD3.

          Midfield: Eriksen and Torres are in (and probably Nego as cheap bench option). Now I want to choose two players of this list:
          A) Wijnaldum
          B) Mount
          C) Insigne
          D) Berardi
          E) Jota
          F) Soucek
          Which one would you choose?

          Defense:
          At the moment I have: Donnarumma / Hradecky /// Alba / Spinazzola / Maehle / Kjaer / Cancelo
          Thoughts? Someone out or in?

          1. JLAEST
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            I have a simile plan and I’m on Berardi and Soucek (+ Alaba) to allow me to go top heavy

        • Redranger
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Which one?

          A) Depay
          B) Immobile (I have Insigne)

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

            A

          2. paulbongers
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Depay. Is in good form with 7 goals and 3 assists in 7 matches for Holland. Immobile doesn't score a lot for Italy.

            • jayzico
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Not B

            I’m not entirely convinced I’ll keep track of this game all the way to the final, but I’m going to give it to… 🙂

            How’s this for a start…

            Schmeichel
            Bonucci/Pepe/Denayer
            Insigne(c)/Bale/Bruno/Tielemans/FTorres
            Ronaldo/Arnautovic

            Hradecky/Varga/Rodon/Alioski

            1. JLAEST
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Pepe Bruno and Ronaldo in that group? Even with LL2 seems to much for me. I’d take Bruno out and upgrade Arnautovic and the other FW

                Thanks for that…
                I was targeting that first fixture mainly.

                  1 month, 20 days ago

                  Exactly target the first fixture. Ll2 and wc3 no issues.

                  Noone can.tell you what's right. Depends on your strategy.

                    You can essentially have 3 different teams for all. Group stage matches.

                    I have no set strategy exactly, but will probably just play as I see it…

            Immobile 5-1 for 3 shots on target.

            Hmmm

            Those talking Beradi - It looks like he is playing this eve.

            Who is a better threat. Jota or Bruno Fernandes?

            A) Elmas
            B) Jankto
            C) Alaba
            D) Someone else. Please suggest.

              Alaba for me. Against Macedonia he might get some returns

            2. cigan
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              I like Jorginho because of pens. For 5.5 I guess Alaba is the best bet, although I don't expect much from him

                  Yeah. LL in gw2 for sure, then reevaluate but probably wildcard as 3rd round teams usually look different with some teams already through or having nothing to play for

            The real dilemma is CR7 vs Arnautovic for me.

            Arnautovic plays Macedonia and having Arnautovic allows me to spend much more on midfield.

            Also CR7s captain appeal is slightly diminished by the fact he's playing on the last day (most likely wont switch the armband to him)

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Arnie may not be 100% fit and Austria have been very poor. Regardless if you captain Ronaldo or not he’s still getting you points, and you can aim higher with your other captains as you know if they don’t work out that Ronaldo will deliver

              Easily Ronny for me

            2. jayzico
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              That's his main appeal for me. Risk or reward for all CR7 holders. Exciting. Though I may twist if a previous dude gets a brace/hatrick.

              Something to think about. The Captaincy value is massively diluted because you can change it up to 5 times. Therefore points per million, with the added issue of no bonus points must be key to picking a side. Defenders earn more PPM generally and the bench counts so money is diluted even more. Generally avoid big hittersIMO

                Agree.

                Think gameweek scores will be very tightly distributed compared to FPL. Imagine your FPL team if you could shed the worst 3 scores and pick the best captain score out of 5 players (its not quite like this but its close). It cuts down the variance massively.

                All the template and AvB questions are kind of a moot point because there are a multitude of viable combinations that will get to a "good" gameweek score.

            @ARTVANDELAY316 brought in Insigne(c) now.

            Let the games begin.

            Last minute checkup -

            Game specific:
            - Put the captains armband on whoever is playing on day 1, even if you think its a bad option, you can always change it.
            - Make sure you have at least 1 player to captain each day
            - Make sure the players playing last are the ones on the bench so you can sub them in for your worst performers.
            - Leave your subs until the last possible minute. information is valuable.

            Team composition:
            - Don't have two keepers playing on the same day.
            - Make sure you have a good bench playing on the final 1-2 days (nailed options unless they are featuring in the early kickoff).
            - Make sure your entire bench isnt Spanish else you may not have one!

            Lastly, remember its just a game. The real winner is international tournament football is back. Enjoy the EUROs!

              I'd add to that. Put the (c) on risky differentials for first two games - if you've a strong md capt 3,4 and 5

                Very good point. It can be generalised
                - Weak links, differentials and punts, or non-nailed should play early rather than late.

                e.g. Hdarecky before your other keeper.

            What is the consensus on chips usage? Last time I checked most people were going for LL MD2, WC QF due to risk of losing players in RO16, but now I see more people going with all the chips in group stages?

              LL2, WCQF is a fantasy. The thinking is you can have the best of both worlds (MD2 upside & KO security) without any downside. It wont work out like that in practice.

              There are two realistic strategies - the Hare & the Tortoise.
              1. LL2, WC3. Maximise group stages, either play RD16 defensively, or continue to maximise and gamble on calling RD16 correctly.
              2. LL3, WCQF. Setup for MD1&2, hope you dont lose too much ground. Can afford to be more aggressive in RD16.

            I see Flex is leaving the United Stand. Always liked him but anyone must go mad dealing with Goldbridge. What a self centred axse the man is. He goes on about the Glazers making football a business but he lives off them himself! What a pain!

            Upgrade F Torres to Insigne? I have 0.5 in the bank.

            That leaves me with too many Italians... what to do with Donnarumma, Spinazzola, Berardi?
