    No, you can change it if they do shit. Same with subs in this game. Just look through this thread for a brief rundown.

    Don't think so. Their expected 11 is Lloris, Mendy, Varane, Umtiti, Sidibe, Kante, Matuidi, Pogba, Griezman, Mbappe, Giroud.

    Seriously though guys, Griezmann or Lukaku? Why has Rom gotta go and score those goals?

    ^ Yeah but seriously though.

    I cannot decide.

    Griezmann may be distracted, or feeling on top of the world..feck knows.

    Feel like Rom will want to impress and has some of the best people feeding him in the world.

    It's a bit ridiculous isn't it!

    My team could be a World XI

    De Gea
    Kimmich-Alba-Meunier
    Muller-Isco-Di Maria-Pogba
    Ronaldo-Cavani-Jesus

    Big Kak for me. France will shit the bed as usual. Actually both teams probably will but surely Kak has the better chance of a big score in that group? MBappe/Giroud will also likely steal some shine from Griezmann.

    I think the Spain news has made me nervous on them too now. Isco out for J Rod. Also gives me a good captain option for the final game of the round should I need it.

    Don't fecking say that, I've got them as winners in the work predictor thing :lol:
    I hope they get far because I'll be in France for the semis and final.

    Is it not likely that they'll all play together, and Griezmann could be assisting them though? Or are they likely to be rotated?

    Oh yeah I think they'll all play together. I just think Kak is more of a focal point in the Belgium set up, added to which they've got the easier group. If your gut says Griezmann stick with him though. He's bound to get some returns.

    I just read that Rom has scored in every qualifier - 11 in 7. Feck. I think I might change.

    I've had a cheeky fiver on him for top scorer too.

    I've done it.

    I think I put Griezmann as top scorer in the predictor too. Feck

    Update to this from Mo Bhouhafsi - the 10 outfield players seen training tactics today were Hernandez, Umtiti, Varane, Pavard, Kante, Pogba, Tolisso, Dembele, Griezmann, Mbappe. Take that under consideration.

    Personally I put Pavard in when I heard Sidibe had done his knee in. Still think France will shit the bed though.

    You have a lot of faith in Cavani i see, he is only half a mill cheaper than Grizzy.
    Feck! I have both Mendy and Giroud in my team, back to the drawing board i guess. Thanks for the heads up.

    Is Dembélé a definite starter for France? I thought Deschamps insisted on playing Giroud up front.

    Still doubting between a couple of players, especially Lukaku and Suarez... Sucks that Hazard is classed as a striker in my game. I want to have sufficient cap space to add Ronaldo after their game against Spain so have to pick a nobody in my midfield regardless.

    I do yeah. I can't change anyone in my team to make up 0.5m now and to be honest, I wanna keep Cavani too.
    I'm just gonna go with it now. Griezmannless

    Uruguay is in a what should be easy group, so it could be a smart move. Have a fair few Uruguayans in my team as well, but no Cavani :p

    Quite similar.

    De Gea
    Ramos Varane Silva Hummels
    Isco Hazard Coutinho
    Messi Werner Jesus

    Wanting to get Neymar in there but Werner and Jesus are so cheap.

    Courtois; C. Ramos, Pavard, Giménez; Eriksen, Perisic, Coutinho, Isco; Lukaku, Suárez, Neymar (C).

    Happy with that, and enough money to spare to bring in Ronaldo for Lukaku after his game against Spain. I don't fancy Salah, who's definitely not 100%, to do something against Uruguay tomorrow.

    EDIT: decided to go full hipster to make it a bit more fun:

    Alisson
    Pavard Giménez C. Ramos
    Golovin Bentancur Coutinho Sarr
    Griezmann Werner Neymar
    Currently got €40m of the designated €300m to spare, it's stupid to have this much money because you can just pick all the top players and don't have to unearth any gems this time.

    The Sun one is really shite. 1 Peruvian defender, no Guerrero, no Rafa Marquez. The first-choice strikers for the top four countries all about £3-4m. It's like they handed it all to the work experience kid.

    The theory is that I should have 5 starting defenders with chances of clean sheets so can then sub in Meunier for whoever fails...problem is the midfield backup's a bit shite.

    Similar to mine but with worse midfield and better attack. Also have a better bench. Be interesting to see who does better. Messi vs bench.

    Can i change formation as i make manager substitution? So say a defender scores poorly, can i sub him off and sub on a striker that plays the next day?
