I've set up a Redcafe League to join.

Squads decided now. Going to have a quick draft today of a team!
 
Had a quick look, prices seem to make it easy enough to pick a team stacked with players from the top teams.

You're right.

Gone with this as a first draft.

I'm usually shite at these, so whoever I picked is probably going to be terrible or get injured before the tournament starts.

GK: Simon, Guilasci

DF: Frimpong, Grimaldo, Theo Hernandez, Mittelstadt, Faes

MF: Bellingham, Wirtz, Fernandes, Rodri, Schmid

FW: Kane, Mbappe, Doku
 
Almost into last day of this, anyone brave enough to post a draft?

My front three hasn’t changed, just can’t take any of them out, and 3/5 defenders are fixed, my midfield is all over the place though. Can’t even really decide if I want one to be fodder to get better players, or if I want 5 x potential starters and miss out on the likes of Foden/Saka.
 
Will Ronaldo start? He's been scoring for fun in qualifiers.

Portugal was difficult for me to decide on. I think I'll use my limitless or wildcard on the 3rd group game and bring in whoever ends up starting most for them.

Go on then, post your team!

Won my work league for this at WC2018 against a load of chumps so safe to say I've got this in the bag.

Do agree that midfield is a minefield though, lots of the young 'stars' have pretty average records so far at international level (Wirtz, Musiala, Bellingham, Foden etc.) so don't think there's a very template midfield, could at least make it quite interesting.

Think I am going to go with this…

Verbruggen / Pentz

Cancelo / Trent / di Marco / de Cuyper / Middelstadt

Bruno / Kvaratshkilia / Gundogan / Szoboszlai / Sudakov

Ronaldo / Mbappe / Lukaku


All attacking full backs at the back, midfield looks shite on paper, but I fancy them to do something and think their teams/chances are underrated and they have good fixtures.

Rumors about Mbappe injury, if it’s confirmed before deadline, willl go for Kane.
 
I joined last minute as well, though there is a good chance I get bored after the group stage, unless I am doing well. How many points is enough from a captain? I've got an armband on Musiala and wonder what's the score I'd keep on day 1.

I think double figures would be worth keeping.

I can’t believe I chose Gundogan, only for him not to score and then not take the pen! The big reason i chose him above Wirtz!

Me too. :(
 
Had Wirtz but captained Gundo instead. Why the feck did he not get an assist for this?



Anyway captain is getting changed. Between Szobo and Dimarco today.

Looking like this currently.

In the UEFA/FIFA fantasy games you can sub in players (who haven't played yet) from the bench and change captains from day to day within the same matchday. You should always have players who play on the first couple of days in the starting XI and then sub out the lowest scorers for someone yet to play. Also have a different captain every day until you're satisfied with the returns.

I forgot about that.
 
I've decided fantasy football isn't for me.

- Gundogan doesn't end up taking a penalty or getting a recorded assist.
- Rodri gives away penalty.
- Rudiger scores OG.
- DiMarco decides to assist Albania within the first minute.

:lol:
 
Sorry for the stupid question I have frimpong on the bench can I sub him in after the Holland game if he plays and scores points or do I need to do it before the match ? It used to be before line ups was announced on other games but this confuses the hell out of me.
 
Bellingham or Dumfries captain for the day? Didn't realise you could change captain so missed out on Wirtz or Musiala first day

Question:
Will Dumfries (C) to Kane (C) be possible? Even though both play today?

Subs/captain have to be changed before kick off in the first game of the day.
 
Not sure whether to stick with Wirtz as captain (20 points) or change to Kane.
 
Why doesn't the game have leagues for countries outside of participating nations?
 
This is the first time I've looked at YouTube to try and figure out who are good picks and every player has been shite. :nervous: :lol:
 
Been apocalyptic so far. 2 pointers everywhere. I'm taking some solace in the fact that basically every commonly picked forward option did nothing, apart from erm... Havertz and Morata, of all people.

Save me, Bruno.
 
Only remembered this was a thing on Sunday so my team has nobody from the first three days of play. On the bright side I've still got six players to try and score some points today!
 
For the first time ever I'm off to a decent start. I've got Bruno, Leao and Neto still to play and sit 2nd.

Unsure whether to gamble on changing captain as I'm expecting big things from Portugal or stick with a decent haul.

Also, just realised Neto probably won't start, so unsure on gambling on losing 2 points for a starter on Neto doing something off the bench.
 
:( had a shocking start. Will Mbappe be fine for next game with a mask or?
