    Only two days to go so just popped on here to promote again my mini league The Charlie Price World Championship.

    Code 3M2UOJ8E.
    Apologies for the rather overblown League name but the sport of Boxing has for years been creating different versions of world titles so thought I would do the same!!

    All welcome. Thanks in advance to anyone choosing to join.

    Does anyone know if the BBC or ITV (or anyone else) will be airing full-match replays?

    I'll be in work for a number of key games that I want to watch them after the fact, 'MOTD challenge' style.

      iPlayer or ITV Player should have them.

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

    Richarlison or neymar
    Money no issue

    1. Charlie Price
      • 3 Years

      Without hesitation Neymar.

      1. Totalfootball

        Okayy!

    2. I Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Easily Neymar in that case.

        Thnx

    Trippier vs Shaw debate:

    Trippier has dead balls
    Shaw has less rotation risk
    Shaw plays his socks off with england

    who will you pick?

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

      Trippier for me

    2. Ask Yourself
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Trying to pick 2 of:
      A) Shaw
      B) Trippier
      C) Otamendi
      D) Hernandez

      Is hard

      1. Ask Yourself
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Currently on Tripp and Ota myself

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

        Otamendi has the least upside and the more rotation risk. + Martinez is only 5.5.

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

        B and D for me.

    3. I Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Both.

    so do we have any clarity yet about the following points of contention:

    re: captains, can we...
    a) only change the captain once during the gameweek (calling them gameweeks because 'matchday' causes confusion), as suggested by the phrase "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." in the rules
    b) change the captain once per day, like in previous editions of the game.
    c) change the captain as many times as we like including mid-day, i.e. , as suggested by the phrase "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." in the rules

    re: transfers, we're able to make transfers mid-gameweek and the player transferred in will score points for you in that gameweek, assuming neither player involved in the transfer has played at the time of the transfer?

    1. Alan The Llama
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      There was a twitter link on an earlier post which stated that A is the answer. Once only.

    2. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      First thing first, call it match day please
      World cup fantasy is a different format, let's accept it

      About the captain/sub question, there's confusion. On the face of it, we can change as many times as possible if the player is yet to play, but that sounds too good to be true.

      I also remember it was once per day in the last editions. But some friends here said it was unconstrained.

      1. aflickering
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        i just think a lot of this confusion is caused by that wording in the first place with people mistaking 'matchday' for 'day', but sure, as long everyone's clear that matchday means gameweek.

    3. aflickering

      B is now confirmed, thanks 🙂

      1. aflickering
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        uh i meant A sorry lol

  6. Moxon
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    If we can only have 2 captaincy options per matchday who would they be?

    Messi and Neymar for me

    1. I Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Messi and Neymar/KDB. Undecided on the latter two.

    2. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I think you are referring to a clarification tweet posted by a folk here

      You can change the captain at least before a (calendar) day starts with a matchday. So that's more than 3.

      So for instance, I'm starting with Estupinan and so on.

    3. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Stand corrected with the rules update

      Yes Messi and Neymar for me too as well

  7. I Member
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    This one seems close:

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

    1. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I'm on B
      But A looks better due to Neymar

      1. I Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Why are you on B if A looks better?

        1. Mozumbus
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          More because I saw A just now, might switch from Kane to Neymar which will resolve

    2. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I've taken KDB out, so A.

  8. Mozumbus
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    A. Neymar
    B. Kane

    1. I Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A

      1. Mozumbus
        • 2 Years

        Thanks

  9. DavvaMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Would you rather downgrade a mid like Di Maria KDB and have Neymar or Mbappe or Kane?

    Current squad is:

    Pasveer

    Trippier | Dumfries | Maehle

    KDB | Di Maria | Bergwijn | Perisic

    Messi | Richarlison | Martinez

    Costa / Olsen / Hernandez / Sosa

    1. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I'll keep KDB
      Richarlison to Neymar
      Di Maria to Rodrigo maybe

  10. I Member
    • 8 Years

    The rules have been updated on the official site.

    1. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Thanks a bunch
      So it's clear now and different from what I thought
      Practically, we will be able to change captain once in a matchday

      1. Charlie Price
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Some clarity now on the official site it seems regarding captaincy. Just taken my captaincy off Qatar defender and put it on Harry Kane as a consequence! Hope I am understanding it correctly.

        1. Mozumbus
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Yes I have put it on Messi right away depriving Estupinan of the luxury lol

  11. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1 year, 3 months ago

    Good news, the official game has updated goalkeepers.
    Bad news, that update means that Qatari GK Yousof Hassan now plays for Argentina apparently lmaooooo.

    GL to those playing but I don't trust this game one bit - sh*tshow from start to finish and investing any more time in it is pointless.

    Looking for money leagues for the World Cup (sky) (fifa) or telegraph. Anything from £5-£20

    Thanks

  13. Totalfootball

    Dumfries or cancelo?

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

      Dumfries

  14. HurriKane
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Perisic in tournament football is a cheat code. Absolute steal at 7.5m right?

    Euro's : 7 attacking returns in 10 matches ,(4g 3a)

    World Cup: 8 attacking returns in 10 matches (5g 3a)

    Amazes me why 16% owns Modric and pnly 6% owns Perisic who is 1m cheaper.

    1. I Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yeah I like Perisic and prefer him to Modric. That said he's not in my current draft.

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

        Interesting. Whats your midfeild like then?

        1. I Member
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Eriksen, Musiala, Bergwijn and Zielinski. Last spot will be Di Maria or KDB, haven't decided yet.

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

            Who do you have top?

            1. I Member
              • 8 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              Messi and Richarlison. Last spot will be Neymar or Lautaro Martinez depending on if I go ADM or KDB in midfield.

          2. HurriKane
            • 11 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Di maria for me. Involved in 8 goals in his last 8 apps for Argentina. I feel like Argentina has more goals in them as well

            Know KDB is talismann and all but he's playing with Hazard past his prime and Batshuayi upfront until Lukaku returns.

            That extra 2.5m could upgrade many options. Will enable a Zeilinski to Perisic for you

            1. I Member
              • 8 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              ADM + Neymar better than KDB + Lautaro you think?

  15. I Member

    With the new rules WC in MD2 is basically a no brainer isn't it?

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

      Why is wildcard in md2 a no brainer?

      I think md3 is a better shout as you will know which teams will rotate and act accordingly

      1. I Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        In MD2 you would get to set up your team for both MD2 and 3.

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

          Things could change in match day 3.

          For eg if Belgium wins first 2 matches KDB could be rotated for md3. Same with likes of Kane neymar etc

          1. I Member
            • 8 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            See Admiral Benson's reply.

        2. Ask Yourself
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          In MD1 you get to set your team up for MD1 and MD2?

        3. Ask Yourself
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Oh now I see benson’s comment below I apologise

    2. aflickering
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      i actually tend to prefer saving it for the knockouts when possible. it allows you to commit more heavily to the 'favourite' teams instead of hedging, because you know you have the wildcard to fall back on.

    3. Admiral Benson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yes, it seems you can use the wildcard in MD2 to set-up for it, and then once the final game of MD2 has started, you can still wildcard out all locked players for those you want in MD3. Sounds too good to be true, but Andy LTFPL had it confirmed by his contact at the game.

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

        Really? Are we sure this would work?

        1. Admiral Benson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Crazy right. Have a watch of Andy’s video on YouTube. He has double/treble checked it, but I’m still nervous tbh. Feels like a hack, but does seem legit

    Just read the updated fantasy rules in FIFA website. Couldn't believe there are so many grammatical mistakes in the write up. Surely it is not expected from FIFA. they could at least hire someone to proofread before publishing in the website.

    1. No Kane No Gain
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Agreed or possibly it is a translation from another language

    2. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      My problem with this is that I have worked for FIFA in my day job - a patent for that weird little ghost/carpet mascot that looks like it's been nicked from Pixar. The translation was scrutinised and proofread to within an inch of its life, as it should be, that's the job.

      And then you have the standard of writing for the fantasy game rules... I am curious as to how it has been done so poorly. Even if you cut corners, I would still expect rules that are far more comprehensible. I can only imagine it's a combo of machine translation and outsourced proofreading by non-natives. Usually, EN is your source language for these things. So how is the EN so woeful? I have no clue how it was this bad.

    Hey all,

    I'm sure you spoke about this plenty, but can you please clarify to me too,
    Is it only 1 Capitan per match day?
    Thank you very much.

    1. Moxon
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      2

    2. aflickering
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      1 captain change, 2 captains total. so i.e. you can start with it on kane then change it to messi if it doesn't work out, or start with it on mbappe and change it to neymar, etc.

    3. Dotherightthing
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Great thank you guys. The 'Matchday' confused me a little compared to the 'Gameweek' we are used to in the Premier league.
      So it's like having a vice captain but instead of changing automatically if your Captain doesnt work you can change it manually if you are not happy with your Captain.
      Thanx again
      Messi/Mbappe.. here we gooo lol

  18. Moxon
    • 9 Years

    Let's see those new drafts post captaincy clarification

    1. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I'm changing it every so often but:

      Rochet
      Dumfries | Trippier | Estupinan | Maehle
      Bergwin | Olsen | Di Maria | Khazri
      Messi | Kane

      Alisson | Neymar | Paqueta | A.Davies

      You?

      1. Moxon
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Looks very solid mate - I think I might experiment with some 2 premium drafts to allow for some flashy punts like Musiala

  19. Totalfootball
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Is Federico Valverde a good pick?

    1. Alan The Llama
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yes

  20. Meimei
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Martinez
    Dumfries | Trippier | Shaw| Maehle
    Bergwijn | Olsen | Perisic | De Paul
    Messi | Gakpo

    Rochet | Neymar | Marquinhos | KDB

    1. No Kane No Gain
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I like Gakpo but will he start for sure?!

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

        I fancy him starting with depay out

  21. No Kane No Gain
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Is Morata a good pick?! At 8M he could be a steal for spain in that opening game against Costa Rica

    1. aflickering
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      don't do it yourself. nobody deserves that.

    2. I Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Kind of tempting to punt on him now that we know we can transfer out players during the GW. If he doesn't start can switch him to Nunez or Richarlison.

      1. No Kane No Gain
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Transfer players during the gameweek?! What do you mean?!

        1. Admiral Benson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          See my comment below to Aflickering

        2. I Member
          • 8 Years

          Check the rules.

        3. aflickering
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          basically you can transfer players mid-gameweek if both players involved in the transfer haven't played yet (and you have transfers remaining of course). so you can potentially wait to check on lineups and then quickly transfer a player out if they aren't starting.

          1. No Kane No Gain
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Thank you. So even in Matchday 1, 30 mins before spain play, if Morata is not starting against Costa Rica, I can use my 1st transfer to get in Neymar for example before his 1st match?! Madness

            1. aflickering
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              yep. even madder: you can transfer him out for whoever is replacing him in the spain team, it doesn't need to be for a player who's playing a day later.

              1. No Kane No Gain
                • 5 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                Awesome thanks! And this is any time the match starts, none of this only before the first game of the day malarchy?!

  22. aflickering
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1 year, 3 months ago

    seeing a lot of dumfries/trippier combos here, are we sure both of those are starting? my concern is that trippier gets rotated depending on opposition and that dumfries may be kept out of game 1 as a precaution following his injury.

    1. Admiral Benson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      You get 2 transfers once MD1 has started. So if you get the England team sheet and Tripps is out, you can transfer him to Shaw. You’ll still get the Shaw points as long as you do it before the England game starts and the players lock.

      1. aflickering
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        i actually knew this but kinda forgot when posting that, thanks!

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          (although i must admit, the idea of waiting 'til the last second to make a transfer on this godawful app fills me with horror.)

          1. Freshy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 13 Years

            ?Ian McShane?

      2. No Kane No Gain
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        If I WC match day 2 or 3 does that mean I can tinker with transfers unlimited if players don’t start for free as we?!

        1. No Kane No Gain
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          As well*

          WC MD2 is ridiculous, and everyone should do it.

          You WC after MD1 has concluded, and set up your team for GW2. You get to swap out every one not in the line up for free to another unlocked player and get the point in GW2, and as long as you transfer out your locked players before the final game is over you can actually set up a perfect team for GW3 for free as well.

            Basically set up a team for GW1 only (use 12th man chip).
            WC AFTER the Brazil game, and match day concludes moving into GW2. Set up a team for GW2 only (check every line up and swap out unlocked players to other unlocked players for free), and While Portugal - Uruguay plays you swap out ALL your locked GW2 players, and set up a team for MD3 where you pick players from countries with a lot to play for, but be quick. after Portugal-Uruguay it is too late.

              And then the app crashes during the Portugal Uruguay game or the code is rewritten so that Neymar plays for Costa Rica...

                Ye well. You'd only have Brazilians that day anyway. The rest of the locked would have been transfers days ahead.

                😉
                That WC MD2 is mindblowing.
                We basically have a free hit MD1 with 12th man chip getting to make two free changes if lineups works against us.
                Free hit MD2 and even being able to react to every lineup.
                Free hit MD3 with countries yet to qualify and two free transfers to correct lineups.
                WC after group stages......

              2. Why do I do this?

                Or don’t pick any players from the Portugal Uruguay game and you can make the transfers earlier with less risk of the site crashing.

              This sounds awesome. Is this 100% possible regarding transferring the locked players by Portugal Uruguay in matchday 2

            I am thinking of using the strategy but after Round of 16, then will have unlimited transfer for both QF and will set up desired team for the SFs

    1 good option to wildcard would be after the end of Round of 16/start of QFs. Then we can have wildcard team for QFs and once the final game of the QF starts, then we can bring in the desired players from the teams that qualify for SFs.

    And none of these players ( from qualified SF teams) will be eliminated further ahead, as either they will play final or the 3rd/4th plac

      3rd/4th place decider*

      Yeah it's good. But I like MD2 way more.

    Thoughts on the below please, not sure if I should get another premium attacker instead of KDB?

    Pasveer

    Trippier | Dumfries | Maehle

    KDB | Di Maria | Bergwijn | Perisic

    Messi | Richarlison | Martinez

    Costa / Olsen / Hernandez / Sosa

    Thanks
