  2. How to play UEFA Euro 2020 Fantasy: rules, scoring, chips, captains and subs 18 days, 19 hours ago

    It’s an interesting topic. For sure, I’ve had my two best seasons when I’ve started well. That said, I’ve also ended up in a good place after horrendous starts (the last two seasons are cases in point). But I wouldn’t say it was easy, perhaps those that say it is are on an emotional high at the end and forget what a grind it was. The masochist in me almost prefers a bad start, the psychological boost of green arrows for long stretches from a low rank trumps the oftentimes lack of satisfaction if you’re treading water in the top 5k without actually making that much ground. Of course you get the odd numpty that splutters “Why should I trust someone’s advice whose rank is 2 million?” but as we all know, it’s where you finish the season that matters. I think experience helps a lot, in so far as if you’ve had a terrible start more than once but managed to end up with a decent rank, that holds you in good stead for the next time it happens. You learn to keep hit… » Read

    I think Bamford will be 8.0. Outside chance he’s 7.5; that’s what Jimenez was at after his breakout season (although he did start out at 0.5 less than Bamford). » Read

    I’m not convinced that total number of points can be compared across seasons. So many variables such as #chips, cleansheets, total goals scored etc. » Read

    Lesson learned - don’t completely mess up the structure of my squad to prepare for a bench boost in a double gameweek. My BB returned a net 2 points and in the subsequent 8 weeks I benched a total of 141 points. Better approach would be to deadend the squad into a DGW and WC straight after. » Read

    Smooth: Sold Digne, Bruno and Son for Dallas, Mane and Pepe. (-8) Captained Mane. Trades returned a net 37 points. Scored 92 (-8). GW Rank of 8.5k. Overhauled a 23 point deficit in my main mini-league. Sneaked into the top 20k. Happy as Larry. » Read

    Wow, that Ederson play was inspired! I’m in a WhatsApp group with a few other addicts I met on here, one of whose mates also had Ederson in Fanteam and his penalty save won the fella the 200k - unbelievable. » Read

    Yes, absolutely. My oppos team was 15 pts ahead before I made my trades and most of the players I wanted, he already had. Was v close to bringing in Firmino and Harrison but changed my mind last minute. Massively fortunate, but he who dares and all that. » Read

    Great stuff Waldo. I know what you mean about all the games happening at once. I started off watching the Leicester game, with an eye on the BBC Sport live text plus my usual WhatsApp groups. Switched to the Pool game, but when the messages came in about Pepe’s goals, I couldn’t believe my luck. Managed to overhaul a 23 point lead in one of my minileagues as well as sneak into the top 20k. Happy days. » Read

    Haha, nice one Beric, sometimes doing nothing is the best course of action. Took some balls in your case, especially with those two players, well played sir. » Read

    Nice one. Rolling the dice and bringing in Mané (c), Pepe and Dallas for Bruno, Son and Digne for a -8 is definitely my favourite since I’ve been playing the game (not-so-humble brag) » Read
