      Beware - I set my 12th man and it doesn't seem like I can change it.

    Qatar are hiring people to pretend to be fans and build the atmosphere up for the World Cup…hilarious and sad at the same time.

        If there's not water canons and plastic chairs flying is it even a world cup?

    So what's the verdict on captaincy - can we swap an unlimited amount of times or just once per matchday?

    1. tensleepslav25
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      once per matchday, so if your earlier pick underperforms you can switch to later pick and that's it

    Does anybody know the assist rules in the WC game (winning pk/rebounds)?

    1. tensleepslav25
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      winning a penalty is 2 points for the fouled player whether it is scored or not, so not classed as an assist. I would imagine a rebound scored by the taker would just be a penalty miss and goal, or a penalty miss and assist if scored by someone else

          Thanks mate, think I’m going for Ecuador keeper so not going for al sheeb but will have a look at rochet

    So who else is undecided yet whether they are going to play this one, or just take a complete 4 week break from playing fantasy football?

      Will definitely watch the games as an England fan, but that’s enough drama for me. Taking a break from Fantasy.

    What's your thoughts on a Martinelli / Odegaard double up for the last half of the season?

    I reckon both could hit 180 to 200 points.

    1. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      All that and a nice price

    2. Zimo
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I've seen that Odegaards points have almost all come up against the bottom teams. I don't know if I want him for the upcoming fixtures. A lot of the goals were deflections or rebounds from Martinelli shots as well. Doesn't seem sustainable to me.

      1. The Mentaculus

        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Yeah I thought this too. His xA remains quite constant but his xG doubles against the bottom teams / comparing GWs 1-5 with 6-10

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years

      Just starting with Martinelli I think, but will probably add a 2nd around GW22. Will definitely consider Odegaard over Saka

    I cannot see updated player lists on the Fantasy WC site. Does anyone have an update on when this might happen?
    So far, no Neuer in German goal or any Danish GK, to name two errors.

    1. Max City
      • 7 Years

      and I have Firmino in my team

    Xmas bus team - good to go?

    Ward (Ortega)
    Trippier, White, Faes (Patterson, Bueno)
    Salah, KDB, Martinelli, Almiron (Summerville)
    Haaland (c), Kane, Toney

    1. Feanor
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      My TV is 105.2. If it was just a little higher I could have a much better defense, but 4.5m was the maximum available for the 3rd defender.

      1. Zimo
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Very similar to mine. Got Dalot and Martial instead of Faes and Toney. U may copy me.

    Anyone know if we'll get to see lineups before making substitutions in WC? Doesn't say anything about sub windows/ deadlines, right?

    This game is full of grey areas right now 🙄

    1. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      There's no mentions of subsitiution or captain changes deadlines before kickoff so am assuming can change right up to kickoff, which is a dangerous thing with this game! After 20th, the MD 2 and 3 kickoffs are 3 hours apart so next game lineups prob be known as previous game is finishing. In MD3 same group games kickoff the same time and next group kickoff that day is 4 hours later.

      Off topic but semi finals round and third/fourth place / final round has the same players, unlike UCL where you need to get a team for final minus losing semi final players. Even allowing for some 3rd/4th place rotation, injuries, suspensions there should be well enough FT for the MD6 and 7. As MD1-3 teams are set might be a plan to use WC for QF round, MD5, gives scope to hit up form players for MD4 without need to focus on some getting to MD5.

    Word of advice (stating the obvious really)
    - don't bother with Polish assets, Mexico and Argentina are going to beat us easily and we will have a really tough game against Saudi Arabia.

    Feel sorry for Lewandowski.

    Is there an official Fantasy Football Scout World Cup Mini League?

  16. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Rochet ( Uruguay) plays 1 pm on 24 November and Costa (Portugal) plays 4 pm on on same day - can you sub in Costa if Rochet scores badly even although both games the same day. I think answer is yes but looking for confirmation

  17. Jafooli
    • 12 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Are not all players added to the game yet? Want to get Martinez (ARG GK) but can’t f’ing him.

    Pretty amateur set up, if I’m honest….

    1. Jafooli

    First go at WC team- any comments welcome. Thinking perhaps Kane or Messi as 12th man in MD 1

    Pickford
    Dumfries Pavard Maehle Shaw
    KDB Musiala Bergwijn De Paul
    Mbappe Martinez

    Rochet Richarlison Valverde Sosa

    Where can we get a list of hidden gems for WC Fantasy game?

    Cheap players, who are first choice and have potential points in them, for all/any positions?

    1. svgcr
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Kendall Waston from Costa Rica. Tough group but he’s a 1.96m CB.

      Very dangerous in set pieces. 8 goals this year for club and country (including 1 in a friendly last week). Last friendly this Friday should give us a good idea on whether he’s first choice.

    I was going to have Kane as my second premium after the World Cup but I reckon he'll be well f*cked if England go deep into the competition and I've got a theory about Salah anyway. I reckon it was a deep fake who returned from Afcon last February and while everybody's eyes are cast 4000 miles to the east for the next five weeks, the Salah we all knew and trusted will be returned unnoticed and as fresh as a daisy to the west coast of England.

    Salah (c) on Boxing Day to prove my theory right.

    Any chance that the World Cup is going to be cancelled now that Russia has attacked a NATO country?

        If we have to rely on conscription the likes of Sterling and Grealish could be needed as part of the war effort.

  24. Dr Funk

    Not a bad team cramming in the 4 big hitters...

    Ward / (Iversen)
    Trippier / Gabriel / White / Dalot / (Botman)
    Salah / DeBruyne / Martinelli / Almiron / (Summerville)
    Kane / Haaland / (Greenwood)

    1. lugs
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      that's a cracking looking team tbf

    2. banskt
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Great looking team.

      I am considering a very similar team, with Saliba, Rashford, (Patterson) instead of your Gabriel, Dalot, (Summerville). This is because I think Rashford could score more points than Dalot. Also, easier to find replacements for the midfielders, e.g. Grealish, Rodrigo, Paqueta, etc. whoever hits the form.

      My main concern is that I could probably get more points by replacing Salah, Rashford with Foden, Maddison. That would of course leave a lot of money in the bank -- 2.9m which I cannot use elsewhere as there is none to upgrade. Maybe Almiron to Diaz if the former does not continue his devastating form. But, we need points, not money.

      very good, i have the same betting style in always looking for the value bet away from the favourites, i rarely gamble so i just mostly treat it as a bit of fun, stuck a tenner on Denmark to win the WC for example at 30/1, for the top goalscorer i think Messi is the stand out bet, he can almost win it in his first game against Saudi Arabia if he puts on a masterclass and scores 4 or something, which he's more than capable of doing against that lot

      1. OneDennisBergkamp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        thank you so much for the feedback, I also agree with all your points, Messi and Argentina have potential to take it all.

    2. Grande Tubarão
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Does this site really need more promotion of gambling (this time unpaid)?

      Also, it just seems to be a selection of the favourites to win it with their average shots per game and xg added with some phrases like ‘Messi seems confident’ and ‘Brazil are very attacking’ thrown in to up the word count.

      1. OneDennisBergkamp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        bit harsh, I left out the top 2 favorites as the point of the article. You have also misquoted so guess you didn't actually read, but no worries.

    after lots of tinkering this is my final draft for the WC, barring some late injury news, happy to take a couple of punts since i have 2 Brazilians waiting to climb off my bench on the last day to replace any duds
