    Hopefully my last decision:

    A) Di Maria + Neymar
    B) KDB + Lautaro Martinez

    1. aflickering

      i don't think you can go wrong here really. maybe B just because brazil's fixtures look a little tougher than belgium's, but then again neymar probably has more potential to really pop off than KDB does.

  2. putana

    any idea of germany's starting lineup?

  3. Dušan Citizen
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Who the hell is nailed on for Spain?

  4. Dušan Citizen
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Also, what's are final conclusions on changing the captain?

    Is it like in EUROs with C chaning every matchday during one round or only 1 change per round?

    1. aflickering
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      1 change per round. it's been clarified an hour or so ago in the official rules.

      1. Dušan Citizen
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        That's just ridiculous

        1. Dušan Citizen
          • 10 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Everybody calling rounds matchdays is also ridiculous. So confusing. There are matchdays in a round as there are more days in one round. Oh my God with these English phrases...

          1. Union_Jacks
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            3 rounds per match day

            1. Dušan Citizen
              • 10 Years
              1 year, 4 months ago

              Oh lord...

            1 year, 4 months ago

            we're just going by the official terminology, but i agree it creates a lot of confusion. and to clarify what i meant above, it's 1 captain change per 'gameweek', not per day.

            1. Dušan Citizen
              • 10 Years
              1 year, 4 months ago

              Got it, thank you!

    Everyone doing all the world cup threads and stuff. One vital info missing lads. What's the temperature gonna be on the day of your players' games on that desert city?
    You're welcome.

    1. Dušan Citizen

      Irrelevant if u can find the last coca-cola in the dessert.

  6. Coast94

    1 year, 4 months ago

    Pretty much set, apart for this:

    A) KDB + Darwin
    B) Modric + Kane

    Feel like A could be more explosive?

    1. aflickering
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      i don't like modric as a pick in general, if you really want croatia coverage perisic is a better pick for cheaper. i'd just go with A though.

    2. sirmorbach
      • 7 Years

      A

  7. sirmorbach
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Quite like my team, but Ward/Rochet as keepers seem bad. What do you think?

    Ward
    Dumfries, Trippier, Alphonso Davies, Maehle
    KDB, Eriksen, Musiala, Zielínski
    Messi (c), Gakpo

    Rochet, Neymar, Kostic, Sosa

    1. aflickering
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      one option is to switch ward out for pasveer (4.5 dutch keeper), he's not nailed but we can transfer him out mid-matchday if he isn't starting as per the weird rules.

      1. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Sounds interesting!

        P.S. Trying to find a good 4.5 mid for you, let me have a look and I'll get back to ya

          Wahbi Khazri

    2. Dušan Citizen
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Isn't Muslera Uruguay's no1?

      And as a Serbian, I wouldn't recommend Kostic. He carries an injury right now and never really played as good as he did in his club for national team. Get Skov Olsen.

      1. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Thank you for the Kostic take!

        I live in Brazil — in the south, very very close to Uruguay —, and I'd bet Rochet starts.

        1. Dušan Citizen
          • 10 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          No problem, mate. Kostic would have been a good pick if he was classified as a defender, but playing as a wingback and added as a midfielder, I think there are much better options.

          Cool, I expect Uruguay to have a great tournament. And what do you think about Brazil-Serbia? If we only had better defence, I think we could get a draw, but in this reality I say 2-1 for Brazil.

          1. sirmorbach
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            I might be biased of course, but I think Brazil edges it — mostly because the attack is very, very powerful. That being said, I think it's gonna be a VERY tough game, and I am rather confident Serbia will beat both Switzerland and Cameroon. I can see Serbia going far!

    best 4.5 (or less) midfielder options folks? that's the one area i'm still dubious about.

    1. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      I’m on Plata from Ecuador to give me day 1 coverage.

      1. aflickering
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        thanks! day 1 coverage is no longer necessary though as we only get 1 captain change.

    2. Uncle Baby Billy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Depends on your intentions. If you're looking for bench fodder there's a Saudi at 3.5 who at least appears to be nailed to start... Almalki. He seems as good an option as any of the 4.5s to me, and the extra million might come in handy for transfers after the first round.

    3. Piggs Boson
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Khazri might be worth a dice roll. 4.5m Tunisian mid on pens and maybe some set-pieces.

    None of the World Cup players are filtering through for me in the Members section

      1. Union_Jacks
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I’ve selected World Cup qualifiers hit go and it’s still throwing out PL players

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          It definitely works for me - do you have another window open with the Premier League selected in the drop-down menu and it's just defaulting back to that every time you load something? At a bit of a loss!

          1. Union_Jacks
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  10. Tanganga and Cash

    Is it worth sacrificing a second GK for this team:

    Pasveer 3.5 GK
    Dumfries Trippier Pavard Maehle Sosa
    KDB Di Maria Perisic Bergwijn Olsen
    Messi Neymar Mitrovic

    Considering downgrading Pavard or Mitro for that 2nd GK, but have my heart set on the rest.

    1. Dušan Citizen
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Mitro might not be fully fit for the first game, be cautious.

    2. aflickering
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      2nd goalkeepers are more important in this game than in FPL because of the ability to sub them in mid-gameweek if the first blanks, so i wouldn't really recommend skimping on them.

      mitrovic is a doubt for game 1 i believe?

      1. Tanganga and Cash
        • 1 Year

        Thank you - need to make some tweaks!

  11. LucasD

    Which is the better combo?

    1 - KDB and De Paul
    2 - Di Maria and Perisic

    So once MD1 starts you can transfer any of your players out. If the outgoing player has played then the one coming in won’t play until MD2 and you keep the points of the player you transferred out. If the outgoing player has not played then you get the points for the one coming in. Does this mean for example that if you see the Belgian team sheet and Trossard starts but you have Hazard who is not in team that you can switch Hazard to Trossard before that game kicks off and you get Trossard’s points? And does this count as one of your 2 free transfers ? Or does it only count as one of your transfers if the outgoing player has already played? This is getting so complicated!

    1. LucasD
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Regardless, it will count as one of your free transfers. That’s how I understand it.

    2. aflickering
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      you're correct, and in all of these scenarios it comes out of the transfers for the current matchday.

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Thanks so that’s why it is better to Wildcard in MD2 as you can set up best team for MD2 and then after last game of MD2 kicks off and all players “locked”switch them out to the best players for MD3 while Wildcard still active. Crazy!

        1. Salarrivederci
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Most of the players woyld be locked in your team a day before Portugal - Uruguay so you should not leave it all to faith to close to the conclusion of MD2, but you're right

        2. LucasD
          • 12 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Yep, this is my thinking too.

        3. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Yeah it does seem like it's a double wildcard. You can basically do this:

          1. Make a wildcard team for MD2 (do not pick any Portugal or Uruguay players)
          2. Before that last game of Portugal - Uruguay, you transfer in (with your unlimited transfers from MD2 WC) all the players you want for MD3.
          3. You now have basically an entirely new wildcard team for MD3 and 2 FTs to use around lineups.

            1 year, 4 months ago

            Seriously, would this work Camzy? I did not think we would have unlimited transfers after the first match of GW 2 started?

        4. bso
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          I doubt it’s active after the first kick off!

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            Active until end of final game in MD2

      None. No way directly or indirectly I'm giving any internet traffic to those Qataris who let die so many people who helped build those stadiums.

  14. SKENG
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Since MD2 WC looks to be the play, thoughts on this MD1 team?

    Schmeichel Rochet
    Cancelo Pavard THernandez LHernandez Maehle
    KDB DiMaria Perisic Eriksen Trossard
    Messi Martinez Batshuayi

    Mbappe 12th man, Messi and KDB captains.

    1. SKENG
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Dominguez not Schmeichel*

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Dominguez and Rochets MD2 fixtures…

        1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 10 Years

          Ahh just read you wc comment

    2. I Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I'm also focusing on an MD1 team planning to WC in MD2.

      Triple France defence slight overkill for me. Would swap one to an England defender. Rest of the team is very nice.

      1. SKENG
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Yep changed one of the Hernandez for Tripps and move some money around. Think I'm set on this one:

        Schmeichel Rochet
        Cancelo Trippier Pavard Hernandez Sosa
        KDB Di Maria Sane Perisic Trossard
        Messi Martinez Batshuayi

        1. LE CHARO
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Good decision since the Hernandez brothers are competing for the same position in the starting XI. Deschamps said that Lucas was considered a left-back in the list and there is a high chance he is ahead of Theo.

  15. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Cillessen not added in FIFA fantasy?

    1. I Member
      • 8 Years

      He didn't make the Dutch squad.

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee

        Aha completely missed this. Thanks! Who is their no 1 now?

  16. sirmorbach

    Any half decent 4.5 keeper?

    1. aflickering
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      pasveer for holland if he starts, not nailed though.

  17. panda07
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Is Meunier nailed for Belgium?

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      No Castagne is a contender for the spot

      1. Jonesfromthere
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        And in good form

  18. I Member

    Best midfielder up to 6.5m for MD1 only? Currently on Zielinski. Maybe Skov Olsen or Trossard?

    1. putana
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      apparently olsen or trossard arent even starters.

      1. I Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Trossard will only start if Hazard isn't ready, I know that. Where did you hear that Olsen isn't a starter?

        1. SKENG
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Still Trossard is really interesting since you can transfer him out for MD1 depending on team news (if I got this right lol).

    2. Jonesfromthere
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Olsen easily

      1. I Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Cheers.

  19. Revival
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Anyone considering Gakpo? Only £7m and Dutch have very kind fixtures.

    1. Jonesfromthere
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Striker spots precious, prefer Bergwijn

  20. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    A) Richarlison + Valverde
    B) Neymar + Trossard

    Which one please?

    1. Jonesfromthere
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      B

      1. Jonesfromthere
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        But neither tbh

  21. Totalfootball
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Thoughts?

    Pickford Rochet
    Trippier Shaw Cancelo Otamendi Sosa
    Modric Di Maria Hazard Bergwjin Olsen
    Messi Ronaldo Richarlison

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I'm interested in Otamendi too.

      I can't in a million years understand anyone picking Ronaldo - he is not a good player anymore.

      1. Totalfootball
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Portugal look good
        Ghana are poor
        And form is temporary class is permanent

        1. RogDog_jimmy
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          i kind of see the logic - but also time is undefeated and comes for everyone. he's washed.
          could work out for sure.

        2. LE CHARO
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Portugal actually play better football when Ronaldo is not playing

  22. RogDog_jimmy
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    so does anyone know the rules yet?
    i'm trying to avoid engaging as long as possible.

    1. aflickering
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      they've been updated on the site today and are no longer ambiguous for the most part.

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        awesome! that's what I wanted to know
        thanks!

  23. RogDog_jimmy
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Ok team is set up like this;

    Turner
    Davies, Dumfries, Maehle, Sosa, Pavard
    Modric, Di Maria, Musiala
    Messi (c1), Martinez

    Costa, Neymar (c2), Paqueta, De Arrascaeta

    Probably doing 12th man Benzema for md1. (Maybe Mbappe instead)

    1. I Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Very nice. Paqueta is an interesting punt but the thing that worries me is that Brazil play last so if he doesn't start you can't twist.

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        that's true - but my other 11 players will all be in double digits so it will solve one headache (heheh)

  24. FC Hakkebøf
    • 7 Years

    Is Ake or Timber nailed? Can’t figure out Netherlands XI

    1. Jonesfromthere
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Ake should be would Dumfries or nothing imo

  25. I Member

    I've got 0.5 ITB after downgrading Zielinksi to Skov Olsen. Would you upgrade Richarlison to an 8m striker or just keep Rich? Already have triple Argentina so can't be Lautaro.

      Would stick with Rich and possibly upgrade somewhere else.

        Yeah don't love the other options. Nunez maybe. Could also punt on Morata with a view to transferring him out if he doesn't start but Richarlison can outscore them anyway. Don't see any obvious upgrades in my team so may just keep the 0.5 ITB. Could come in handy for a transfer.

          Actually forgot about Morata. I would prefer him I think, good shout.

      Pavard for me. Tagliafico not nailed, Acuna could start. Can see Brazil conceding to Serbia.

    My team was set up to WC MD3. With this new WC info I will have to start all over again and WC MD2.

      what new WC info? I'm not seeing anything on the site other than the regular kind of wildcard?

        See Andys video. If you WC MD2 you can also set up your team for MD3 when the last game is beeing played. Almost liketwo WC

          yeah just seeing the tweet descriptions too. haha.
          i really didn't want to care that much about the game and team lineups.

      ok i'm seeing some crazy descriptions on the twitter.

      Basically a wildcard on MD2 allows you to know all the line ups and then transfer out everyone before the end of the MD and set up a new team for MD3 - which effectively is 2x wildcards in one.

      A but i'd consider getting shaw and ditching pickford myself, feels like better value to me.

      and i'd lean toward B due to their easier group and better team.

    As we will have 2 transfers to use in Matchday 1 we can include some of those players who are doubts for the Tuesday/Wed/Thurs games. If we find out they definite non-starters, they can be transferred out for someone who has yet to play.
