    Bale captainer here, could have had so much more. :/

      Yeah, painful watching that.

      I know. Would have solved the twist problem.

    Thanks Bale (c)!
    Pretty easy decision to stick or twist. 🙂

    What could have been with Bale C, missed pen, two Ramsey misses, Wilson miss...

    9 point captain on MD1 is too boring to stick.

      How did Bale get 9, two assists is 6, CS 1, appearance 2 would be 9, but he missed a pen

        earned pen

          Still gets that even though he missed it ? That's like supplying a chance that is missed and getting the assist !

            Missing the pen doesn't change the fact he won it.

            Its a decent rule in the international games.

              And why not national games?

    Damn, I decided to captain Bale instead of Insigne/Spinazzola. He could’ve had 4 assists & multiple goals!!!! Oh well, I’ll take the 18pts from him. Would you keep his 18pts or switch captain to Lukaku, Yarmolenko, Dumfries, Wijnaldum, Zinchenko, or Meunier for tomorrow’s games?

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

      I’d probably twist assuming you have Kane and Mbappe also

      1. iberiaballer
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Yes I have both Kane & Mbappé. The list of players mentioned are only those that play tomorrow. I also have Pogba & Alba

    2. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      I'm gonna stick. 18 in the bag

      1. iberiaballer
        3 months, 1 day ago

        I’m honestly leaning towards sticking as well. If I switched to Lukaku, Kane, or Mbappé they would basically need a brace in order to replicate Bale’s 9pt performance

        1. Ron_Swanson
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Exactly. Stick a fiver on the hattrick for those players and you’re laughing

    3. korbendallas82

      I was lucky Ronaldo saved me in MD1. I started with Insigne, then passed it on. If you look at Ronaldo two goal, 10 points, a captain needs a really big haul to get bigger score than 10x2 i fhink.

      1. iberiaballer
        3 months, 1 day ago

        That’s true. If I switched to Lukaku, Kane, or Mbappé they would basically need a brace in order to reach the 9pts that Bale has scored. I may just stick with Bale (c)

  5. YoungPretender
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Bitter sweet that one as a Bale captainer, could have been so much more! 9 points is a tricky one but think it’s a twist with Kane and Mbappe to come.

  6. Joey Tribbiani

    never considered Bale on LL, wonder why

  7. KAPTAIN KANE

    Bale bonus 3?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Roberts probably knicked it after the pen miss deductions.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Grrr

    2. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Lol

  8. Sterling Archer
    • 4 Years

    The confidence for those corners at the end, guys a hero

  9. Vlad Tepes

    Will prob stick with Bale, 9 points aint that bad but he could have had 20+ points

    1. azz007
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      32 to be precise

    2. Aster

      Me too

  10. JohnnyRev7

    Well done Wales! Great match to watch.

  11. That Was Easy!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Who would you captain tomorrow between Yarmo, Hazard and Gini?

  12. BooYaKasha
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Do we need to factor % Ownership?
    Bale is only 4% owned, isn't he more effective than a 10 pointer from a highly owned Captain?

    1. Deeney-is-a-god
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Well, if the a high ownership player actually gets the 10 points than obviously you would have more points by captaining them. But right now I would stick and pray that the other options do not get 10 points

      1. Deeney-is-a-god
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        I will stick with bale, its not super likely that the star strikers will score twice, and if they do you get one more points… for my it is the best options to just stick

    2. That Was Easy!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I remember Mark's affinity to use his TC on a lower-owned player / in a week where it's not being used. Andy on the other hand was of the thought that "10 points is 10 points", etc.

      Anyone know where those discussions landed? This was a hot topic for a few weeks - curious to know if anyone gave in either way.

    3. Vertigo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      No. Most non-Bale owners/captainers still have four chances to score 10+.

    4. Ragabolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      No, it's exactly the same which can be proven mathematically. Same thing in FPL too, if you captain a player with low EO, or if you captain a player with high EO and they score the same points, you get the same exact rank.

      Points you gained by him being differential are leveled by points you lost from not captaining the popular player.

      1. BooYaKasha
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Even if you own the popular players being captained?

        1. Ragabolly
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Yes, it evens out

          1. BooYaKasha
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            You're a star man,
            livefpl.net is a game changer!

    Turkey the dark horse turns out terribad, who’d have thought.

  14. FDMS All Starz

    So Bale (c) here, do I stick or twist?
    Capt options:
    - Lukaku
    - Sterling
    - Mbappe/Benzema

    1. BooYaKasha
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      What's the best scenario for each of them 10 points?
      No point chasing, I'm sticking

      1. Deulofail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        10 is the best? There are definitely higher numbers

        1. Deeney-is-a-god
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          And also lower, scoring twice in the euros is pretty good, it very unlikely that they will score more than 10

          1. Deulofail
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Very unlikely? Individually, they are unlikely to score over 10 (I wouldn't say "very unlikely"). The chance of one of your captains scoring over 10 is not unlikely though. Somewhere around 50%, I reckon. And one of them scoring over 8, for instance, is going to be much more likely than that. The only issue is that you can't wait for them all to play and then pick the hishest scorer.

            1. Vertigo
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 1 day ago

              Exactly. Plus people are fixating too much on goals and strikers.

              60 minutes and a clean sheet from Sterling, with two assists, gets you 9 points - to say nothing of the penalties we know he can wangle.

              1. Deeney-is-a-god
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 1 day ago

                People are fixating on strikers cause thry know who they will captain… I would have captained lukaku, kane and then mbappe…

                1. Vertigo
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 1 day ago

                  Most people will, I suppose.

                  Personally I'm going Insigne, Yarmo, Sterling and hopefully won't have to rely on Mbappe.

            2. Deeney-is-a-god
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 1 day ago

              How many of the big hitters scored more than 10 in the first gameweek? Matches can be quite tight in the euros and teams fight to the very end, it is not often that one player is involved in more than two goals

      2. Vertigo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Winning a penalty, scoring a penalty, gaining an assist or two...

  15. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    18 pts from captain. Stick or twist?

    1. JohnnyRev7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Tough one. What are your other options?

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Kane, Lukaku, Insigne...

        1. JohnnyRev7
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          So you went Bale over Insigne. Maybe Lukaku tomorrow. Don't fancy Kane in a hundred years.

    2. Aster
      3 months, 1 day ago

      I will stick

  16. Nightcrawler
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Easy call to stick with bale

    Have kane mbappe and kaku but they basically need at least 3 attacking returns to make it worth a twist

    A blank is more likely than 3 returns imo

    1. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Is 3 blanks more likely than 1 x 3 returns?

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Doesnt have to be 3 blanks tho

        If kaku and kane get 6-8 points ur going to switch to mbappe

        1. Deulofail
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          I was using your rules, not mine!

          1. Deulofail
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            And I don't think I'd switch to Mbappe if I had 8 points on thepenultimate day. I'd just accept the 1 point loss.

            1. Nightcrawler
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 1 day ago

              In that case an mbappe haul would become irrelevant.

              1. Deulofail
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 1 day ago

                Correct. In that case. At that point.
