    Ferran fail

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Feckit. Roll the dice to Ronaldo.

  2. KAPTAIN KANE

    Anyone got a more unlucky back 5?

    Cancelo | Castagne | Vestergaard | Zinchenko | Jansson

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Strikers:

      Kane (C) | Depay | Pukki

      Lol

    2. RogDog_jimmy

      mine are all just duds so far.
      Cancelo.
      Maehr+Kjaer double up
      Ristovski

      If Torres holds onto this CS he'll have outscored the other 4 combined lol.

    3. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Ristovski, Denayer, Wijndal, Kjaer, Torres.

    4. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Buckmann, Alioski, Denayer, Wijndal, Kjaer, Eriksen, Soucek, Zakaria, Dupay.

      I'm not far off a whole team of blanks.

    Ferran Torres, a massive fail in a first round chock full of massive fails.

    When can you make subs for tomorrow? Once tonight’s game has finished? Cheers

    1. hullcityfan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      About an hour after I think

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 13 days ago

      usually takes about an hour to allow you to sub/move captain

    3. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Yes but better waiting until close to substitution window closes to get some team news.

      1. Bring the Cavalry
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I’m subbing out a bunch of 0 anyway so no loss!

        Thanks everyone

    Captaincy moves to Ronaldo then - more and more looking like should have kept Berardi’s 6 points !

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Ronaldo goal and 2 assists

    2. Rotation's Alter Ego
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Don't think that was a bad decision at all, sticking first round on 6 would backfire on you more times than not. Ronaldo hardly a bad last option!

    3. Nomar
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Bruno for me.

      May just gamble on Giroud now instead.

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 13 days ago

        i have Bruno and Ronaldo to decide between - still not sure which.

    4. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      No Kaku ? I could have kept 10.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        You twisted off Lukaku :O

        1. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Already had 6 blanks (only on 39 points now with 9 blanks), so twisted in the hope that a maga captain score could get me back in contention.

  6. Adetro
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Spain have been so frustrating this second half.

  7. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Yay Jansson coming on I think

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Or maybe not!

  8. GreennRed
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    It isn't pretty but the Swedish game plan has been damn effective.

    1. Nomar
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      It’s a training game, defence v attack.

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Reminds me of Greece 2004

    3. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Bit of a Sweden plan but Spain have been rubbish

      Pass pass pass

      1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Some really clear cut chances. Another team could have put Sweden away ages ago

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Definitely. No cutting edge up front.

    4. FingerNFudge
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      It’s the neutral swede way. The neutralisers. Draw masters.

  9. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    So Bernardo Silva is my last hope now

    1. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Ronaldo (c) is mine. On 39 points so need him to score at least five times.

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I'd be really confident if I had Ronaldo. Bernardo is not so inspiring!

  10. Swans3aJ4ck
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Can I just check - after this GW I can use one sub (Erik - Gigi) and then hit Limitless? That’ll mean GW3 I should have 3 subs right as one sub carries?!

    Am I right?

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 13 days ago

      no don't think any subs carry over after chips.
      and your team re-sets to what it was so used chips won't stay in effect for MD3.

      1. Swans3aJ4ck
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Hmmm so I’d limitless but still have two transfers with my current team to make changes for GW3.

        Guessing this is why people doing WC then.

        1. RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 13 days ago

          yeah - that's my plan. figured it was too hard to get a good team for 2 matchdays with limited transfers and so much unknown.

  11. Gerd Mueller’s thighs
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    The overall quality of play so far has been lacking, and not just from the minnows, but teams like Sweden, Italy, Denmark, Czech Republic, etc., who unlike in the past, have very few talented players.

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 13 days ago

      i think that's a weird list.

      italy bossed their game - and their skill level was super high.

      denmark were bossing their game until eriksen died on the pitch - they can be excused for the tournament for not being switched on.

      this was clearly sweden's plan and they managed to have the best chance of the game. will be interesting to see them against the rest of the group.

    2. artvandelay316
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Bizarre comment. Italy had a masterful performance.

    3. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      What are you measuring their quality against? It's just Round 1. Italy are the best team so far. Belgium not bad without Hazard and De Bruyne. England deservedly beat Croatia, Sterling impressed despite poor season, Phillips very good. Netherlands and Spain were poor.

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 13 days ago

        going in everyone expected the Netherlands to bottle it. So that was expected.
        And I think we all knew Spain would look like this and have no striker to finish. So that's not surprising either.

        Also still got Germany, France and Portugal to come - can't wait to see them.

        Of games I watched the biggest disappointment was Croatia.

    Lovely CS for Pau Torres

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      My only one!

  13. MGD
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    2 points lost but we’ll get them next time.

    Onwards, Sweden!

  14. RogDog_jimmy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 13 days ago

    stick on P.Torres captain - 6pts?

    twist to Bruno or Ronaldo?

    1. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Twist Ronaldo. Bruno not on pens.

      1. GreennRed
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Not on anything if his overall Portugal record is a good guide.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I'd definitely twist to Ronnie.

      1. Finding Timo
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I am still on stick with lukuku and think keep it on him

        1. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          I'd stick

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Well Lukaku is an obvious stick imo.

    3. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 13 days ago

      cheers - seems obvious, but 6 pts in the bag ain't the worst.
      wish i did Lukaku over Eriksen and had the 10.

  15. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Switch Captain to:

    A) Pogba
    B) Kimmich
    C) Jota

    1. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      C

    2. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Wait as late as you can before deadline to get the best team news. Not convinced Jota will start after a few days when we thought we had nailed on starters that didn't.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Surely that won’t continue….will it

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          I think Jota was sounding less nailed on to start than Denayer of Wijndal. And both of them didn't start. A lot was made of Jota's goal burst coming to Euros and doubts on Bernardo Silva but Silva has played something like the last 20 games for Portugal.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Ok thanks

  16. Finding Timo
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Is the main plus of playing Limitless MD2 rather than 3 MD2 less rotation / risk of players being rested or teams playing for draws if that it what they only need?

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 13 days ago

      i think so.

      i'm going to try make a regular WC team and LL team for both and see which has more upside.
      but it'll be a guess.

      1. Finding Timo
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Cheers mate - i am saving my wildcard til later round

    2. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Fixtures. Most of the teams who had a good fixture in MD1, have their hardest fixture in MD2.

      1. Finding Timo
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Oh good point so think that will apply to lots of my players so that would force my hand

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I think it's also because lots of people's MD1 teams are awful so they have to pivot to LL in MD2 and WC in MD3.

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 13 days ago

        there's also this! if you end up with 2-3 not starting...Eriksen and/or Cancelo....it's hard not to use a chip immediately.

        1. Finding Timo
          3 months, 13 days ago

          All my players played except denayer

      2. Finding Timo
        3 months, 13 days ago

        My MD1 team had been ok so in no hurry to use it but thinking MD2 slightly better than MD3

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Well if you planned for it that way.

          I think LL is better in MD2 than 3 because you can use your whole budget confidently however WC is stronger in the QFs than in MD3. I think I'd rather save the WC for the QFs.

          1. Finding Timo
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Totally agree on WC point / cheers

      3. Finding Timo
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Thanks all for advice by the way

    4. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      It might be. You'll still be left with your MD1 team for MD3 before you make transfers, in a MD when some teams already through will rest players.

      1. Finding Timo
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Yeh that’s a great point too! Crickey is very difficult to decide ! Thanks

    5. azz007
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Yes ll2 have unlimted potential everything to. Play for all expected players will. Play. Laod up

  17. amplifiedAnt
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Hmm, before the tournament I probably would've taken 66 with Ronaldo to play. But top of mini league has 72 with Ronaldo, Pavard and Rudiger to go!

    As you can probably tell from those selections, they made some odd picks...

    Anyway:

    1. Bank the Eriksen 1 pointer
    2. Risk a 0 with Nego

    And yes, I should've made a proper 15-man squad. Hindsight, etc.

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 13 days ago

      for 1 point I'd take that gamble 100 times out of 100.

  18. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Which option alongside Mbappe on LL?

    A. Griezmann
    B. Giroud
    C. Benzema

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 13 days ago

      gotta wait and see how they play tomorrow.
      no way to know now.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Let's see tomorrow...

    3. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Not Giroud they won’t pass to eachother..

  19. tristanabc
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Which strengthens the team up more for next week?

    a) Foden, Maehle -> Malinovskyi, Walker
    b) Foden, Torres -> Mount, Yarmolenko

    Simon Hradecky
    Bonucci Soyuncu Torres Bednarek Maehle
    Insigne Torres Berardi Foden Nego
    Kane Lukaku Depay

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Torres to Yarmolenko, Maehle to defender for your budget. Do 't sell Foden or buy Mount.

    2. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I think Mount was ineffective, I reckon 50/50 to start, wouldn’t be surprised to see Grealish in his position..

  20. Subzero (-4)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    What do we think of this LL team GW2

    Courtois
    Zinchenko Dumfries spinaz
    Sterling insigne yarmalenko wiljandrum de bruyne (if fit)
    Lukaku immobile

    Pickford Pavard LHernandez mbappe

    French lads mopping up any mess?

    Any obvious errors or players you would recommend that I need.

    Many thanks in advance 🙂

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Looks pretty good. I'd double down on some defenses rather than split.

      1. Subzero (-4)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Which defences you reckon then? I did have double Italy defence and no immobile. Contemplating this and swapping him to Kane but Italy look deadly in attack as well as defence like

  21. Finding Timo
    3 months, 10 days ago

    All, should be considering taking a hit
    And doing 3 transfers MD3 if hsve spina, beradi, lukuku, denayer & carassco? Plus others (holl, Portugal etc) who may also quality by then?!
