    Did anyone ever play Olympic Soccer (1996) on PlayStation? I used to handicap myself against my older brother by disallowing myself from scoring diagonally from the corner of the box, which almost guaranteed a goal. And it wasn't in the instructions, but if you pressed the opposite direction to where you were shooting, immediately after shooting, the ball would go long and far, and you could kind of steer it like a homing missile, meaning you could pull off spectacular, 100% legit and realistic goals from the halfway line to really frustrate my friend who hates the game so much hahaha in your face, Nick.

        Hey, you playing fantasy Euros?

      I’ve not heard of that but IIRC there was a similar diagonal/corner of the box goal hack on the Mega Drive’s Italia ‘90

        Which featured such household names as Peter Silton and Kenny Hansom

        Just took a look at this on YouTube and I'm pretty certain this was one of the games I'd play at my friend's house, along with Golden Axe. Never had a Seeeegaaaaa, myself 🙁

        Something satisfying about older games with all their quirks, leading the player to take things into their own hands to get the win, however necessary, and filling in the rest with their imagination, without all the frustrations of "AI" and various other complex game systems trying to replicate real football so accurately. Basically, I'm just saying I'm bad at Fifa beyond 2011.

          The corner of the box goal trick works on FIFA 95, 96 & 97 also.

          Fairly more often if you play from top to bottom.

            One day I will have enough disk space and computing power to emulate all these old games and host tournaments that stretch over multiple weekends. It is a very attainable dream

      The stand in front of the keeper when he is kicking from his hands trick made FIFA 95 too easy!

  2. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON

    Does this team look ok?

    Costa Pickford
    Carvajal Cancelo Hernandez Dumfries Akanji
    Musiala Gundogan Ruiz Williams Bruno
    Kane Mbappe Gakpo

    1. Tonyawesome69

      Depends if you have used all your free transfers. I would look to sell Gundo if you haven't

    2. Bobby Digital

      Looks fine

    3. dunas_dog

      Yes it’s ok

    4. Botman and Robben

      yup

  3. Bobby Digital
    • 6 Years

    I'd definitely save my WC for next MD if I were you. Nothing wrong with your team for this MD. Just get some Gakpo and you're golden.

    Gonna save my wildcard, would you take out wirtz for -4 as he’s benched here and could do with an extra player for 6th as starting 11 all play Friday.

    Maignon
    Upa, Carvajal, Cancelo, Rudiger
    Bruno, Williams, Ruiz, musiala
    Ronny, Mbappe

    Subs (Pickford, Gakpo, Dumfries all 6th) + Wirtz

    Better combo for next round? Have Gakpo Kane.

    A. Virgil + Simons
    B. de Vrij + Bellingham

      Yeah I just did the selecting club and email preferences, but still showing last season's data

    2. Deulofail

      Nothing interesting in here though. Just last season's game.

    • 13 Years
    8 days, 38 mins ago

    Would you rather have

    A) Kounde, but only 2 outfield players playing on the Saturday, so 1 less available sub to make
    B) Van Dijk

    1. Deulofail
      • 8 Years
      8 days, 37 mins ago

      B for sure

      Wonder if we see more from Walker overlapping with this setup

    2. ritzyd
      • 6 Years

      I don't think this is the team, reckon tripps gets in ahead of taa for a start

      1. JBG

        Lineup will probably get leaked tomorrow.

  10. MMN

    7 days, 23 hours ago

    Dutch defender looks the best Guehi replacement - VVD or Ake?

    Best replacements for the Austrian mids? I'm thinking 2 from Foden, Jude, Simons, Ruiz, and Musiala. WC in semis so eliminations don't matter.

    Costa Pickford
    Cancelo Carvajal Walker Cucu GUEHI
    Bruno Gundo Nico BAUMGARTNER SABITZER
    Morata Gakpo Ronny

    Thanks!

      Virgil

  11. DV8R
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    7 days, 23 hours ago

    Pick 2 from the following midfielders to bring in for 2 FT:

    A) Simons
    B) Ruiz
    C) Bellingham

    And 1 out of the following defenders, for 1 FT:

    1) VVD
    2) Ake
    3) Kounde

    1. CoracAld2831

    What's the best captain choices for Fri & Sat ?

    1. CoracAld2831
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 days, 22 hours ago

      Consensus seems to be Mbappe & a Dutch attacker.

    2. It’s A Joke
      • 13 Years
      7 days, 21 hours ago

      Mbappe cos of money. Personally, I wouldn’t as he’s been crap.

  13. Moxon
    • 9 Years
    7 days, 22 hours ago

    I wish I had 3 players that went out instead of 2.

    It's a headache thinking about whether I want to use my 3rd FT or not.

    1. CoracAld2831
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 days, 22 hours ago

      Mind as well as you cannot store them.

  14. Mother Farke
      7 days, 22 hours ago

      Needed 3 transfers so did: Guehi > Kounde, Baumgartner > Simons and Sabitzer > Bellingham.

      The latter was done because of England's potential formation shift, the other two based on my eye-test. Why not? I'll admit I'm playing casually for fun after a stressful FPL campaign.

      1. It’s A Joke
        • 13 Years
        7 days, 21 hours ago

        Simons is the best mid for The Netherlands FF wise. But he’s not been great and has been benched.

    • BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 days, 22 hours ago

      Why all love for Vvd (and Ake)? Why not Dumfries?

      1. Bad Kompany
        • 6 Years
        7 days, 22 hours ago

        Ball recoveries

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Fair enough

      2. It’s A Joke
        • 13 Years
        7 days, 21 hours ago

        Possibility of being taken off on 59

      3. F4L
        • 9 Years
        7 days, 21 hours ago

        feel like a vvd goal is coming, hit the post last match

    • Bad Kompany
      • 6 Years
      7 days, 22 hours ago

      Who is likely to start in the front for Germany vs Spain? Havertz, Musiala, Gundo, and who's the last one? Sane? Wirtz? Füllkrug?

      1. It’s A Joke
        • 13 Years
        7 days, 21 hours ago

        Can’t be sure. He’s fluctuated between Wirtz and Sane.

    • Bad Kompany
      • 6 Years
      7 days, 22 hours ago

      In regards to the rumors about England playing a back 5 against Switzerland. That would just be to counter Switzerland's own back 5. Or do you think Southgate could persist with it?

      1. It’s A Joke
        • 13 Years
        7 days, 21 hours ago

        Southgate is unlikely to change anything as he’s like a ribbon in the headlights.

        1. It’s A Joke
          • 13 Years
          7 days, 21 hours ago

          Or a rabbit, lol.

    • It’s A Joke
      • 13 Years
      7 days, 21 hours ago

      A) Gundo & Lamal
      B) Ruiz & Havertz

      Anyone considering getting a Swiss attacker on their team?

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee

        If I had one more FT I would

      Williams(c) here we go!

    • marcos11
      • 3 Years
      7 days, 21 hours ago

      Is Gakpo/Bellingham worth a hit over Morata/Simons?

        1. marcos11
          • 3 Years
          7 days, 20 hours ago

          Have Morata KDB Sabitzer atm so I'm between moving the two midfielders to Simons and Williams or getting rid of all three for Gakpo/Bellingham/Williams

          1. marcos11
            • 3 Years
            7 days, 20 hours ago

            Only have 2 FTs though as I have to remove Guehi

            1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
              • 10 Years
              7 days, 20 hours ago

              I wouldn’t do it for a hit. I’d keep Morata

    • Naby K8a
      • 8 Years
      7 days, 20 hours ago

      Where did this TAA starting chatter come from? England could still play Trippier (if match fit) and Saka as wing backs. Should they go 343 as expected. Too risky unless Ornstein or whoever says he's playing

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • 12 Years
        7 days, 20 hours ago

        England played a back 3 in training and saka as a wing back.

        The media and twitter went wild.

        Now you can argue there are many legitimate sources saying its 3 at the back. But crucially it is as legitimate as me saying that Palmer starts.

      2. F4L
        • 9 Years
        7 days, 20 hours ago

        is foden in these predicted line ups?

        1. Naby K8a
          • 8 Years
          7 days, 20 hours ago

          from what i've seen, yes. but I haven't seen anything reliable aside from a probable formation change.

        Which combo should I go for fanteam?

        A) Depay and T.Hernandez
        B) Gakpo and Kounde

        1. The Knights Template
          • 10 Years

          Have you considered fantails instead?

        2. ritzyd
          • 6 Years
          7 days, 19 hours ago

          B safe, A aggressive

      • GoonerByron
        • 12 Years
        7 days, 19 hours ago

        How’s this looking for a Limitless draft for the Quarter Finals? Chasing massively so tactic is to go for the lower owner attackers, try + hit the France clean sheet and if not I’ve got the low owned England/Dutch backup..

        Maignan - Verbruggen
        Kounde - Hernandez - Stones - de Vrij - Dumfries
        Rodri (c) - Bellingham - Saka - Bruno - Rice
        Kane - Depay - Havertz

        Can't decide on my last defender. Already have VVD, Dumfries, Cancelo, Cucurella (Pickford, Costa in goal) so would you go for

        A. Rudiger
        B. Theo
        C. Akanji
        D. Trippier

            Am I best saving them both and use one of them for Semi's and the other for the final?
