    Anyone doing Fanteam World Cup fantasy?

    Pretty annoying it’s just 11 players and not a squad. Everyone’s teams are going to be the same.

      I am, finding it really hard to get em all.

      Having said that, they have been really good at not underpricing anyone too much (verging on mean maybe).

      On paper, pretty much every 0.5m spent gets you an upgrade (apart from their insistance on pricing clearly second choice players (defenders/GKs in particular) too highly). So I actually think there might be a little more variation than you think. In the official game there are some ludicrously cheap players that every semi-engaged manager will have. In FanTeam there isn't a single must-have at his price point.

      Having said that, I do think, Bergwijn, Musiala, Maehle and even Messi seem sympathetically priced.

      Really?
      I'm seeing teams about 90% the same in official game on here. That's boring to me.
      And a lot of variation in FanTeams according to other people's teams on Twitter. In fact, I'm so torn on slight variations that I will probably enter 8 teams in the main game and the one I like best again in the £5 single entry comp.

      They've done an exceptional job in player pricing imo with one notable exception.

        Notable exception? [eyes emoji]

          Pedri imo. It's almost as if whoever did prices for the Spain team got him confused with someone else. But even then, there is a tactical element - the safety net won't catch me if he somehow doesn't start.

            Thanks for the tip! I've been waiting for the FFS Spain article

            Pedri doesn't really score goals. I have no interest in picking him.

            Valverde on the other hand is 6.5m...

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

              Valverde's XGI was 0.1 in world cup qualifying.
              Pedri's was 0.3.

              And I only need Pedri for the Costa Rica game anyway. Just a cheap enabler.

              1. Make Arrows Green Again

                1 year, 3 months ago

                Honestly it may sound mad but I'm tempted to go Moore for Wales for 6.5. Can see him getting among the goals in the first couple of games with his height and the relative quality of Wales' delivery from wide positions.

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

                  If you have a good feeling then go for it man 🙂 My only concern would be that the safety net is extremely unlikely to help you out if Moore misses out, but I like those first 2 games and have a draft with Bale in it. Ben Davies also cheap at 4.5 for Wales.

                  There will definitely be a low-owned sub 7m striker gem who emerges. I applaud trying to get them from day 1, I'm more wait and see with safer drafts.

                  1. Make Arrows Green Again
                    • 7 Years
                    1 year, 3 months ago

                    Fair enough, I think Moore has to start so it should be a moot point.. but my team is still far from settled with 24h to go

      I think that's not true at all. I bet my 11 is nothing like yours.

      B

    Alphonso Davies of Théo Hernández? I fear the latter might not start.

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

      I have gone with Theo, hope the bugger starts?

      Any France fans on here?

      1. BBC_TF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Theo not playing. Lucas does

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

          Which is a fairly stupid decision by deschamps

          Also benzema injured

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

          Has Deschamps said this? Or just your opinion shame if he does not start might switch back to Pavard then.

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

            He played a starting 11 at training on friday and lucas was LB.

            Lucas Upamecano Konate Pavard

            Frankly it makes no sense but it is a fact

            1. DavvaMC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Damn, yeah makes no sense Theo much better option.

    2. BBC_TF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years

      Davies was also injured. I would avoid both

  7. Fernandito
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Which combo would u go with?

    A Pavard & Morata
    B Cancelo & Gakpo

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

      Gakpo is not certain

      Stay away from france defence

  8. DavvaMC

    Anyone know which Dutch keeper will start?

    Pasveer or Noppert?

    Thanks

  9. tim_oriordan
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Thoughts on this?

    4.5m Dutch GK
    Dumfries, Trippier, Maehle
    Di Maria, Eriksen, Musiala, Bergwijn, Khazri
    Kane, Messi

    Rochet, Raum, Sosa, Neymar

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

      Looks good. Would keep Dumfries but wouldn't double Dutch defence.

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

        Cheers

        Hmm, which 4.5m keeper would be the best replacement? Ward?

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

          Not sure. Going Dominguez and Rochet. Ecuador defence not bad but against low enough ranked teams. Hoping between both I'll manage a CS per match day.

  10. GreennRed
    • 12 Years

    Is this more confusing than ever?

    Can do 2 FT of unlocked MD1 players to get two players in for MD1.

    Can trigger wildcard and start making MD2 changes after MD1 finishes but before MD2 starts. But the WC remains open to let you transfer players in for MD3 before MD2 finishes? Surely the WC for MD2 isn't active after MD2 starts?

    Any DreamTeam experts out there?

    30 transfers to use throughout the entire tournament - was wondering if anyone who has done well before has any advice about how quick to be burning through these. I'm thinking something like 20 in the group stages where the gulf in teams is greater and then hope and pray that 10 will be enough for the later stages?

    If you play your 12th man chip can you change your mind? I am trying to change it here and having no luck. The app is poor.

    1. I Member

      No it doesn't seem like you can change it.

        Cheers, I have kane as 12th man... he could go well.

  13. Bobby_Brown

    I would say Bijlow. It's definitely between Noppert and him. Noppert has been in the 1st 11 in training the last day or 2, but his main role is to come on for penalty shoot-outs.

    Forget Pasveer, he's only there as he won't rock the boat as no.3. This is the reason Cillesen was not selected.

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

      Why has Van Gaal tried a few different keepers recently?

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

      Interesting so you think Bijlow is first choice all the predicted lineups have Pasveer?

    What's the latest/thoughts on if/when Depay will be fit to get into the starting XI? Looks like he'll be a reserve for Matchday 1, but beyond that? When he's fully fit, I'm guessing he would replace Janssen, and Bergwijn would stick in the lineup? But I wonder if the Dutch win their opener, if van Gaal will keep the same lineup, and especially if they win the first two, makes sense to rest Depay for the knockouts.

  15. Bobby_Brown
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Depay needs game time so he will start the 2nd game, can't see him playing 90 mins .

      OK maybe not worth the risk what about Dumfries do you think he will be OK?

    1. Mozumbus

      Courtois with Rochet as backup

    Guys my friend is playing with the game in French and in the French rules the captain rules is as last Euro/World Cup Fifa, you can change your captain as many times as you want, only caveat is that you will lose the points of previous and new captain hasnt played yet

    1. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years

      It doesn't make a lot of difference imo

      1. Charlie Price

        Just what we need. Different rules depending on what language you speak!!!

          Rules are exactly like the prior euro and world cup tournaments.

          People are either thinking too hard, are creating issues to write content or cant read.

          1. Mozumbus
            • 2 Years

          I'll not get too sensitive here from language perspective
          It could just be an issue of interpretation
          If it's the same game, don't think it'll be possible to discriminate on the basis of language from the algorithm perspective, if this is what you are concerned about

    2. GreennRed
      • 12 Years

      Sure the French have their own word for computer. An ordinateur no less insert eyes up to heaven smiley yoke. The captain rule is same in English. Just wish they were as clear if captain changes are same as substitutions and can be made after every game.

      Shane's attacking output for Germany in the last year is well down on his Bayern returns. I had him but swapped out cos 9m is too much for a player to just hope his country form returns in Qatar.

      1. Gudge
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Tbf he does seem to be a bit on pricey end of the scale. Who would you recommend at a similar price? Cheers

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

          I swapped him for Gundogan who's also a bit pricy for a midfielder. But should do OK on tackles and key passes bonus and on penalties.

      2. BBC_TF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years

        I think sane could be the surprise here. His touches in the box and shots are the highest with gnabry

  21. Gazzpfc

    Which trio

    Rochet Sosa and B Fernandez
    Noppart Estepuian Foden

      1 year, 3 months ago

      A

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

    With Benzema injured should we consider Giroud?

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

      There are many options elsewhere including Mbappe, then Neymar Messi Kane Lautaro and so on

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

      Griezmann in the reckoning too. Better going with more nailed on hitman.
