Lightbulb moment, that's why it's called limitless! Completely missed the no money limit, that changes things. I guess it makes most sense to use it in the group stages now.
Same here. Not given this much thought so far.
Bit mad having 2 chips in a 7 game week game..especially as week 1 is infinite freebies to the first game.
2 transfers in between game weeks too. Captain changes etc.

It's a little too easy to run!

Bruno what a friendly game! It would be nice to get him in, but without the pens I struggle to see him worth 10.5 million. Maybe on limitless he is a great pick though even against Germany.

Pau Torres started last friendly so I think he might start based on that. Although him and Laporte both left footed central defenders. Some managers like one right and one left.

Yeah Pepe is 38 years old. From my understanding he is expected to start. I might actually uppgrade to Cancelo or go with one Italian defender instead. Particular if we get one under 5.5.
It seems we will know the Italy line up before the deadline, so I'm going to get their cheapest starting defender and probably whoever starts from Chiesa/Berardi.

It's crazy. I don't think I like it, it's way too generous compared to FPL. Same for everyone though I guess.

Knockout rounds can be brutal though with only 3 and later 5 subs.

I think come knockout the best strategy is probably to set up 15 strong players, but only use hits to get 11 strong starters.

Then you better hope you can predict the teams reaching the semi finals at least. If you fail it will cost you a lot.

I think we'll be able to predict the round of 16 winners pretty easily, so should be alright for the quarters. Maybe wildcard for the semis, but that could be a complete waste if you've predicted well.

So I did a tournament predictor. Got France/portugal vs Switzerland. Belgium vs Poland. Italy vs Ukraine. Spain vs Scotland. Should see mostly favorite win in those games.

Although also got England vs Portugal. If England wins the group it will be hard for them and hard to know if we should have England players in our teams.

Exactly, so we in theory should be good there.

However for the quarters I've got Italy v Belgium. France vs England. Spain vs Germany and Portugal vs Wales (not sure how they made it). So could easily lose 9 players there if things go wrong.

I'm not touching anyone other than Kane for us. Too much rotation risk in the mids and I don't trust the defence without Maguire.

Probably copy this.

@Sandikan ... if you can do me a summary of tactics, chips, etc that'd be great.

Just go in from pub and feel a tad fragile

Changed the defence around with Italy & Belgium having pretty favourable fixtures in the group stages and also swapped Kane for Ronny with Portugal facing Hungary but midfield is staying the same bar injuries of course. You can bet now I have done that it they will both fail to keep clean sheets now knowing my luck.

I see you in the league. When you go to the uefa site make sure you are signed in first(right hand corner) then follow:

Games>Fantasy Football>My team

Let me know how you get on.

OK I'm in. Bargain defence, big up top. Plan is limitless for the 3rd group game and target teams with something to play for. Wildcard QF probably.

Donnaruma / Hradecky

Denayer / Wijndal / Hinteregger / P Torres / Maehle

Insigne / F Torres / Mount / Tielemans / Alaba

Kane / Lukaku / Depay


Captains will go - Insigne>Lukaku>Depay/Kane>Torres for match day 1
How does the captain points work? Is that just the order you're prioritising or can you change and get multiple captain points?
Does anyone know why Dan James is not even on the bench for Wales? It would be annoying if he gets injured and miss the tournament. A great tournament would be great for us if we keep or sell him.
And not forgetting 3.3m Welsh people who'd like to see a second knockout qualification before they die. Please

Yeah, you can change every day so you want to give yourself options as some will blank. The decision will be how many points should you stick on?

Changed mine up slightly and settled on this now. Attacking the MD1 fixtures. Will check that Italian lineup before the deadline though.

Donnaruma / Hradecky

Denayer / Wijndal / P Torres/ Kjaer/ Maehle

Berardi / F Torres / Eriksen / James / Alaba

Ronaldo / Lukaku / Depay


Captain options = Berardi>Eriksen/Lukaku>Depay>Torres>Ronaldo

Thanks, so stick or twist basically?

Put a little effort into the PL FF but other than keeping an eye on captain and changing teams at knockouts, the Euros FF is just going to be for fun. Spent 3 minutes selecting team and only took that long because I had no idea who the £4.5m foreign players were.

CR7 as captain.

Yeah basically. So CR7 should be your last chance saloon captain. Don't pick him from the off.
