      I've just checked too and it turns out they were eliminated by France. Who knew!

        Ha ha. At least it proves that I actually do read what you publish. Thanks for the information anyway. Its most helpful.

          You were quick off the mark, Charlie!

    Have Mbappé and Gakpo already. Pick one to complete this forward line:

    A) Depay (vs TUR)
    B) Havertz (vs ESP)
    C) Yamal (vs GER)

    Thank you in advance 🙂

      I think you go Depay with the fixture. Although Spain vs Germany will have goals I feel. Depending on if you are WC-ing in the semis too...

    Should I WC here or could I save it for the semi-finals after the tricky matchups? I can get a full 15 with 3 FT but have some tough matchups.

    Pickford / Maignan
    Rudiger / Cancelo / Carvajal / Cucurella / Guehi**
    Musiala / N. Williams / Bruno / Baumgartner** / Sabitzer**
    Ronaldo / Mbappe / Gakpo

    2m itb

    1. David Parkinson

      Use the FTs and save.

    2. Tartan Brazilians

      Save WC for semis. Several of your players on suspension tightrope and you will probably lose half your team in the next round. 3 transfers gives you full 15 and some Swiss, Netherlands options

    3. Hart-ake
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      11 days, 12 hours ago

      I guess the issue is that all of the fixtures are tough matchups anyway, so even with a WC, it's tricky to know how to play it and also predict who will advance. You can target a couple of Dutch players with your FTs.

    Hey guys, just made a 30 min video guide for MD5:

    Timestamped by position and includes updated stats.

    Good luck!

      Thanks, great video! Personally, I would like to see xG+A split for defenders as goals are worth twice as much as assists. For forwards, there's only one point in it, so I don't care as much.

  5. Deulofail

    Just realised I can't go through with my transfer plans because I'd have too many playing on Friday 5th. Major balls-up

      Don’t present the problem, present the solution!

      1. Deulofail

        There is no solution

      I think I wrote about this just a little bit earlier, but under older article.

  6. YoungPretender
    • 9 Years
    11 days, 11 hours ago

    Morata, Baumgartner & Guehi > Gakpo, Simons & Stones?

    Will play WC in semis.

    1. The Iceman
      • 1 Year
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      Yes IMO.

    2. Nespinha
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      will you still field 15 players?

      1. YoungPretender
        • 9 Years
        11 days, 10 hours ago

        Yes, Guehi and Baumgartner are my only players not available

  7. Nespinha
    • 8 Years
    11 days, 11 hours ago

    Still have WC but...

    Pickford, Costa
    Mendes, Cucurella, Carvajal, Van Dijk, Guehi ***
    Musiala, Williams, Fernandes, Sabitszer ***, Baumgartner ***
    Kane, Mbappe, Morata

    A) Dumfries, Vargas, Simons
    B) Normand, Bellingham, Aebischer
    C) Dumfries, Simons, Gakpo (keep Sabitzer, Morata out)
    D) play WC

    1. The Iceman
      • 1 Year
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      C looks best of those options.

    2. Deulofail
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      A for me. More tickets to the lottery than C and better tickets than B

  8. Deulofail
    • 8 Years
    11 days, 10 hours ago

    New plan, new plan!

    Pentz + Baumgartner + Sabitzer > Verbruggen + Musiala + Simons

    Giving this:

    Morata Yamal Ronaldo
    Williams MUSIALA Gundogan Fernandes
    Cucurella Cancelo Walker
    Costa

    VERBRUGGEN | SIMONS, Ake, Stones

    5.7 ITB. No Chips.

    I wanted to balance out my 4 Portugal and 4 Spain with 2 of each of their opponents, France and Germany, but that would leave me with 13 players on the first day. Instead, I'm all in on Portugal, since Musiala is a better pick than Kante, so I'm really now picking between Simons & Bellingham, and Verbruggen & Pickford. Knowing that they would meet each other if they go through, and that Netherlands has the slightly easier fixture in the quarters, I figured balancing towards Netherlands was the best way forward. Simons may be better than England mids anyway.

    Thoughts? Perhaps I should be looking outside the Netherlands (been wondering this for a while since I live here!)

    1. fenixri
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      Nice team. I am also picking between Bellingham and Simons, and I think I will go Simons because of captaincy for day since I have Depay over Gakpo and mids score better in this game.

      Who are you going to cap?

      1. Deulofail
        • 8 Years
        11 days, 10 hours ago

        Thanks. Good question! I'm not sure I like any of my team. I guess Musiala or Williams on the first day, and hope for an open game, though Yamal and Cucu are tempting after their performances last game. Maybe even Cancelo, since France arent exactly free-scoring. Then I guess It's Simons, but it feels pretty underwhelming. If I were you, I think I'd go for Gakpo. At that point, you're not looking for 9s and 10s as a minimum score, but just whoever is likely to get more points. I think it's Gakpo.

        1. Deulofail
          • 8 Years
          11 days, 10 hours ago

          Oh I'm sorry, I see you don't have Gakpo. Yes, then Simons 😀

        2. fenixri
          • 8 Years
          11 days, 10 hours ago

          Cant get Gakpo unfortunately, stuck with Depay. I hope Depay does something, he had a few good chances against Romania.

          I am also on Williams and Simons/Bellingham

    Transfer thoughts with 3FTs (no WC left):
    Pickford Maignan
    Carvajal Cucurella Pepe VVD Guehi*
    Gundo Musiala Bruno Sabitzer* Baumgartner*
    Mbappe Gakpo Morata*

    1. Guehi to Ake/De Vrij/Akanji/Rudiger/Kounde
    2. Sabitzer to Simons
    3. Baumgartner to Williams/Vargas
    4. Morata to Havertz (-4)

    1. fenixri
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      Whatever you decide dont do 4

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 10 hours ago

        It was one of the free transfer moves I was considering before the Austria defeat haha. Unlikely to do it for a hit

    2. Deulofail
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      Why is Morata *ed?

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 10 hours ago

        One of the players I want to do transfer out.

        1. Deulofail
          • 8 Years
          11 days, 10 hours ago

          Okay, I would prioritise the other three and not take a hit on Morata, personally. Ake, Simons and Williams would be my choices, taking the bet against England if they and Netherlands reach the semis

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 5 Years
            11 days, 10 hours ago

            Cheers, agree with not taking the hit and betting against England.

            How did you rank Ake over De Vrij/Akanji/Kounde/Rudiger?

            1. Deulofail
              • 8 Years
              11 days, 10 hours ago

              First, I think Netherlands are most likely to reach the semis of those teams. Ake has scored well in the game so far and I see him involved a lot (e.g. flicking on balls in the penalty area). I'm working with limited knowledge from highlights, mostly, though. If he comes off early, he's more likely to get a clean sheet, but if he stays on for longer, he's probably going to be only a point below De Vrijs for ball recovery (mayyybe 2). Not sure if it's because I am accustomed to seeing him in PL, but I notice him in highlights, not only in the opposition box, but he comes out with the ball looking composed, and I figure that kind of noticeability can lead to PotM awards. Very much based on vibes 🙂

              1. Tonyawesome69
                • 5 Years
                11 days, 9 hours ago

                Probably not much between the two.

                Ake - early sub off, 0.5m more expensive but has some goal/assist threat

                De Vrij - 90 mins, cheaper and more ball recoveries

                1. Deulofail
                  • 8 Years
                  11 days, 9 hours ago

                  I haven't considered money at all. I have 8.5 ITB! If they are even Stevens with money considered, then Ake would be the clear choice if money doesn't matter, like, logically. If the money's tight, maybe go for De Vrij so you can look for a better use of 0.5 in the final 2 MDs

  10. fenixri
    • 8 Years
    11 days, 10 hours ago

    Any suggestions for 3 transfers? Want to save wc for semis

    Pickford Maignan
    Cucurella Carvajal Stones Pepe DEF
    Bruno Musiala Gundo MID1 MID2
    Morata Mbappe Depay

    For def I am thinking VVD or Theo
    For mid1 Ruiz or Williams and for mid2 Simons or Bellingham

  11. CoracAld2831
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 days, 10 hours ago

    Please pick a pairing you like:

    A: Gakpo & Bellingham
    B: Mbappe & Simons
    C: Gakpo & Simons

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      Double Dutch

    2. fenixri
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      I think B

    3. CoracAld2831
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      11 days, 8 hours ago

      Thank you.

  12. ToyBlader
    • 8 Years
    11 days, 10 hours ago

    A) Gakpo + Vitinha
    B) R. Leao + X. Simons

    Which one and why?

    1. fenixri
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      A) Better form than B, but I dont like your Portugal picks

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      I would prefer to bet on double Dutch attack. Better fixture according to bookies odds

  13. kinghenry14
    • 8 Years
    11 days, 10 hours ago

    current team with no LL or WC left:

    costa
    saliba ake carvajal
    bellingham bruno muasiala n.williams
    mbappe gakpo

    donnarumma baumgartner guehi bastoni (all out, guehi suspended)

    i am 1st in our mini cash league with a lead of 33 points to 2nd so would try to cover.

    i am thinking donnarumma baumgartner bastoni —> verbruggen f.ruiz kounde (2.1itb)

    would cover his ruiz and kounde, only problematic players then could be kane (in his team) and yamal (not in his team as of now.

    solid moves or any other idea? cheers!

    1. fenixri
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      Good moves but hard to tell without seeing rival team. Bellingham should cover Kane easily, plus Kane most will get 1 goal, served on platter.

      33 is a lot and honestly anything can happen now in QF.

  14. We Go Again
    • 9 Years

    Do we know who is likely to replace Guehi in the England team for this upcoming game? Is Konsa likely to get a chance?

    1. lilmessipran
      • 11 Years
      11 days, 9 hours ago

      Konsa probably

  15. boc610

    so if those hand gestures mean what we think they mean Demiral is a **** . thanks for letting us know. he should be sent home.

    A or B?

    A) Morata to Gakpo
    B) Pedri to Ruiz

    1. lilmessipran

      thats cleared that one up then

    4. Deulofail

      A

  17. JBG
    • 6 Years
    11 days, 9 hours ago

    Can't see many clean sheets this round.. maybe from England, Swiss and France. So stocking up on CBs who love a recovery point and/or are threats on set pieces could be the way for defensive picks.

    1. Funkyav
      • 15 Years
      11 days, 9 hours ago

      i can defo see a couple

  18. Dynamic Duos

    How's this? wc intact

    Maignan
    Carvajal Cucurella Cancelo Rudiger

    Mbappe Ronaldo

    Maignan Gakpo Simons Ake

    1. Deulofail

      Needs more French goalkeepers

      1. Dynamic Duos

        Pickford*

      2. Dynamic Duos

    You can't save FTs in this game right?

    1. Steavn8k

      Not in the knockout stages no.

  21. Steavn8k
    • 1 Year
    11 days, 8 hours ago

    Anyone with a clue as to why it says in the app that Mbappe is unlikely to start the next match? Has his broken nose somehow gotten more broken?

    1. idaho23
      • 6 Years
      11 days, 8 hours ago

      It was stated in the app in the match against Belgium as well, but he played the full minutes. An error I reckon

      1. Steavn8k
        • 1 Year
        11 days, 8 hours ago

        Cheers, I thought so as well.

    2. Paul Psychic Octopus

      UEFA incompetence.

  22. idaho23
    • 6 Years
    11 days, 8 hours ago

    Hi lads, Koundé or Pepe? Leaning towards the former. And what is the vibe with Morata, a must drop?

    1. Steavn8k
      • 1 Year
      11 days, 8 hours ago

      Koundé for sure and yes drop Morata, Gakpo fx is a better option.

      1. idaho23
        • 6 Years
        11 days, 7 hours ago

        But to whom? I (strangely) cannot afford Kane and I already have Gakpo and Mbappe.

        1. Steavn8k
          • 1 Year
          11 days, 6 hours ago

          Yamal worth a shout maybe? Bound to score soon.

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years

      Kounde

  23. Bobby Digital
    • 6 Years
    11 days, 7 hours ago

    Are you guys piling up on players or spreading it out over all teams? I have two players from every team bar Turkey who I have none from and Holland who I have three players from.

    1. JBG
      • 6 Years
      11 days, 7 hours ago

      I'm gonna spread it around... Switzerland might be the only team I don't touch, not sure yet.

      1. CoracAld2831
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 days, 6 hours ago

        Strongly considering going without Turkey, Switzerland & France.

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 6 hours ago

      Mostly invested in France over Portugal (but still have Bruno) and Spain over Germany (but still have Musiala). Bit spread over other teams & I think I want to buy Güler even if just for one game. If I had a WC I'd probably go heavier on Netherlands now

  24. Baps hunter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    11 days, 7 hours ago

    My problems (not counting having Morata over Gakpo) are Baumgartner, Sabitzer, Guehi and Mittelstadt.

    Supposing Mittelstadt doesn't start, I am down to 14 players and I don't believe anyone is worth a hit. WC after this md. My current 11 plays on 5th day, so I have to get 6th players in. First name coming in is VvD, who is likely going to be my C. Gundogan and Aebischer/Simons are likely mids atm, but who is the best 2nd best attacking defender to consider supposing Mittelstadt won't start? CS and goal would probably mean also 3 motm points and some defenders get also recoveries, so safe option is a possibility also.

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years
      11 days, 7 hours ago

      I liked how Dumfries and Kounde looked in the last games

      1. JBG
        • 6 Years
        11 days, 7 hours ago

        Both could and should have had 1 or even 2 assists.

  25. Sulky Benchwarmer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    11 days, 7 hours ago

    Maybe a daft question- can I play WC in semis and use Limitless in final?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years
      11 days, 7 hours ago

      Of course

      1. Sulky Benchwarmer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Thanks, I regularly mess up using chips!

    2. Hairy Potter
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 6 hours ago

      Probably won't make much of a difference, but why not limitless in SF and then WC in the final when money definitely won't be an issue?

            Thinking of getting rid of Morata , Kroos and Guehi and replace with

            Simons,Gakpo, Stones

            That allows me to balance out the Spain Germany fixture a bit and there is a chance mittelstadt plays rather than Guehi who wont which potentially gives me 15/15

            Doyou agree ?

              Or do you think i am better replacing mittelstadt ? Assuming England will get through to the next round and Guehi will play?

          Who to get rid of...Ronnie or Morata? Not worth 4ph for both.

          Cavendish setting the solo record for most no of TDF wins, it might not come home but England certainly has something else to celebrate.
