    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
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

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

        1. iberiaballer
            1 month, 10 days 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

          I'm gonna stick. 18 in the bag

          1. iberiaballer
              1 month, 10 days 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

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

            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
                1 month, 10 days 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)

            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.

              never considered Bale on LL, wonder why

                Roberts probably knicked it after the pen miss deductions.

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

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

                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

                  1 month, 10 days 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

                    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

                  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.

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

                  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 month, 10 days ago

                    Even if you own the popular players being captained?

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

                    • 10 Years
                    1 month, 10 days ago

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

                    1. Deulofail
                      • 5 Years
                      1 month, 10 days ago

                      10 is the best? There are definitely higher numbers

                      1. Deeney-is-a-god
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 5 Years
                        1 month, 10 days ago

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

                        1. Deulofail
                          • 5 Years
                          1 month, 10 days 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
                            1 month, 10 days 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
                              1 month, 10 days 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

                                1 month, 10 days ago

                                Most people will, I suppose.

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

                            1 month, 10 days 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

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

                  18 pts from captain. Stick or twist?

                    Tough one. What are your other options?

                      1 month, 10 days ago

                      Kane, Lukaku, Insigne...

                        1 month, 10 days ago

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

                    1 month, 10 days 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
                      • 5 Years
                      1 month, 10 days ago

                      Is 3 blanks more likely than 1 x 3 returns?

                      1. Nightcrawler
                        • 2 Years
                        1 month, 10 days ago

                        Doesnt have to be 3 blanks tho

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

                        1. Deulofail
                          • 5 Years
                          1 month, 10 days ago

                          I was using your rules, not mine!

                          1. Deulofail
                            • 5 Years
                            1 month, 10 days 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
                              1 month, 10 days ago

                              In that case an mbappe haul would become irrelevant.

                              1. Deulofail

                                Correct. In that case. At that point.
