    I'm confused by the changing captaincy in the WC game. Can we change it to anyone who hasn't already played in a matchday an unlimited number of times? I.e., can I have a captain in the 10am game then 1pm, 4pm and 7pm?

    The rules say I can change it to anyone who hasn't already played, but a lot of the guides I've read have said you can only change it once?

      Only one per day

        One change per day or one captain?

        You can change your captain an unlimited amount of times, as long as the new selected captain is yet to play in the current matchday.

        Once your captain has played in the matchday, you are able to change your captain once more for another player who is yet to play.

        I don't think it's very clear!

      It is confusing but I think the words
      “ once more” means you can “yet again” change captaincy to a player who has not played rather than you can only do it once more!! So I think you can change as many times as you want in a Match Day to a player yet to play

      It is phrased very poorly

      Hopefully you can only change it once, changing it 10 times in a Matchday sounds like a terrible idea and reduces the stakes of captain choice

      I think it is once you have a captained who has played, you can only change it once after that. So basically you get two captains in MD1, or if your first does well you stick with that. Exactly the same as UCL but difference there is there are only two days in a full MD, where there are 4 or 5 here.

    Has there ever been a less interesting post in the history of FPL? 😀

    The strongest brands are where the product is no different but it is perceived to have more value.

    Major sporting events are stronger brands than any physical product.

    Who would watch Qatar v Ecuador at any other time?

      I'm watching it, hoping to see Qatar humiliated.

    Anyone for bale ? Not seen him in any other team but has a dreamy first two (USA, IRN)

      Rhymes with fail

        Good enough logic to make me avoid I think

  5. Bring the Cavalry

    Any other decent keeper at 4m other than rochet? I wanted Ecuador keeper as their games are always low scoring but think he is 4.5

    1. fenixri
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Not really.

    2. KingZamalek
      • 9 Years

      Decent? No.

    3. Piggs Boson

      An Iran one. Queiroz is a great coach and has them sit deep in a 451. Tricky side to penetrate, so should face a few long shots for easy save points.

      They play before Uruguay so can switch him to Rochet if it fails.

      1. Bring the Cavalry
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Thought about iran but which one is the number 1? They seem to rotate each keeper

    4. Original Sin
      • 9 Years

      Isn't Muslera the number 1 keeper for Uruguay? Why everyone is going for Rochet? He might not even start

  6. fenixri

    RMT (1mil itb)

    Martinez Rochet
    Dumfries Shaw Maehle Gvardiol Cancelo
    Bergwijn Perisic SkovOlsen Kostic DePaul
    Messi Neymar Mbappe

    Decided to pick a quick a quick Sky team, as I have an account anyway (doing quite well at 393rd in Sky PL),

    Martinez
    Dumfries Trippier Perisic
    Caicedo Saka Xhaka Musiala
    Messi Neymar Mbappe

    Caicedo is my first captain, prob will go for a Danish pick first move. £3m in the bank still!

    1. lugs

      this is the first Sky team i've seen posted, there is money on the line so that makes sense i suppose, as for your team, i like it if they all start but Saka & Musiala aren't guaranteed to, Southgate could easily play Foden, sterling Kane in a front 3, Musiala is good but still a teenager, Caicedo makes sense if you're capping him although i think capping a defender is the play day 1, Xhaka is an interesting pick but for the same price you can get Maehle who i think will score more points, the rest is great

      Great rank think I'm around 3000.

      Going for Valencia for Ecuador myself I think! Then Kane will come in. Rough plan is to have Messi, Kane, Mbappe and Neymar for all their matches which can achieve with a good team and swapping round the last 3 with transfers.

    I assume Argentinian goalkeeper now added called Damian Martinez is Emi Martinez?

    1. sirmorbach
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      People who organised this Fantasy don't seem to follow football that much.

      That said, yes, it is Emi. Damián Emiliano, if I recall.

      1. St Pauli Walnuts

        I reckon Infantino is doing it all himself.

    What are people's thoughts on when to play 12th Man and Power Captain? I've got a GW2 wildcard planned, so I'm thinking 12th man on GW3 for the most expensive player that I want, who maybe doesn't have the best GW2 fixture.

    I feel like Power Captain isn't a major advantage as you can change captain for each match. It might be useful if I captain Messi and Martinez outscores him. For that reason I'm thinking GW1 is the best time to use it.

    1. Piggs Boson
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      GW3 is dodgy for 12th man as teams already through might rest players. I'm going GW1.

      Power C is best for either the Semi-final or Final/3rdPO as there are only two games in each.

    2. Scratch
      • 14 Years

      Considering Power C for first MD. Alsoplanning WC after MD2.. since a few of the top teams may rotate a lot with their groups already secured

    3. banskt

      Power captain is good when you have 6-12 players from the same game, in the last matchday for example when there are only 2 games.

      GW3, some expensive players may be scoring less points if their team has already qualified. I think round of 16 is the best time to play the 12th man. You still have most of the good players and it may be difficult to find cheaper alternatives, players will play extra time if required.

    4. lugs

      i'm thinking matchday 2 for the 12th man, i can bring in someone like Lewandowski vs Saudi Arabia, or even Mitrovic vs Cameroon as differentials, then maybe matchday 3 for the power captain, it could be a minefield picking a captain that week due to rotation, so the power captain can solve that dilemma by just automatically doubling the points of my hugest scorer which could be someone that i never would have considered

    Greetings, lads. Are people betting on Dumfries or too much of an injury concern?

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

      He's in my team. Netherlands play Monday afternoon so should have decent team news by the deadline

        Good point! Many thanks!

      He said he's fine to start, for what's it's worth ... I'd prefer it from Van Gaal though ha

    Are the prices locked at the moment until the GW 17 deadline?

    Is Di Maria nailed on?

    1. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years

      I think he is nailed till the score is comfortable

    Hi...I've just wasted an evening of my life trying to pull together a WC side for Fan Team but I need a cheap(ish) enabler in midfield or up front to complete the jigsaw. Any ideas chaps?

    1. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years

      Khazri

    2. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Pedri, Bellingham and Valverde are underpriced mids imo.

      Thanks for the replies. I'll have a look at those players.

    Jeez, this place is dead these days, isn't it? Two days before the WC starts and my comment above was the first for 38 minutes. Where's everyone gone?

    1. Oscar Slater

      Not alot of love for the WC game. Although it would be a great place to review matches

    FWCF added new players to the game, but my favorite Iranian goalkeeper is still missing -- Alireza Beyranvand.

    Who will play in the right wing for Netherlands in their first game -- Dumfries or Frimpong or someone else? (Thought Dumfries is injured).

    1. panda07
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Is that the goalkeeper with the massive throw?

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

        Yes, that's the one.

  16. Yes Ndidi

    Really not feeling the love for the World Cup game but thought I might as well enter into the spirit at least.

    Martinez Rochet
    Pavard Maehle Trippier BornaSosa Castagne
    KdB SkovOlsen Bergwijn Kimmich $8m
    Griezmann Mbappe Martinez

    Best use of that $8m?
    Hazard? Olmo? Saka? Reus? Shaq? Paqueta, even?

    Assuming WC in round 3 if I stay interested for that long.

    Many thanks

      wow Hazard only 8m, i think i'd actually pick him for the lol's
