Finished \o/

GK: Julio Cesar - Manuel Neuer, Samir Handanovic

DF: Maicon, Sergio Ramos, Ledley King - Rafa Marquez, Lucas Neill, Maynor Figueroa, Benoit Assou Ekotto

MF: Tim Cahill, Angel Di Maria, Aaron Lennon, Bastian Schweinsteiger - Clint Dempsey, Stephan Mbia, Marek Hamsik, Andrej Komac

ST: Didier Drogba, Gonzalo Higuain, David Villa - Alexis Sanchez, David Suazo

Mine goes along the lines of this

GK: Manuel Neuer, Vladimir Stojkovic, Claudio Bravo

DF: Philip Lahm, Madjid Bougherra, Rigobert Song, Maynor Figueroa, Martin Skrtel and Taye Taiwo

MF: Maurice Edu, Frank Lampard, Wesley Sneijder (Might Change him of VdV), Jean Makoun, Thomas Kahlenberg, Riccardo Montolivo, Michael Bradley and John Obi Mikel

ST: Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Wayne Rooney, Oscar Cardozo and Lucas Barrios

Still unsure its worth getting 3 top striker to sacrifice other areas of the team

Also Roberto why have you put Drogba in? Pretty sure he is out of the world cup with a broken arm but I suppose you can change you side still.

Code isn't perfect, but I reckon that's a pretty strong squad, spent all my money on it.

Also Roberto why have you put Drogba in? Pretty sure he is out of the world cup with a broken arm but I suppose you can change you side still.

Oh damn, how did I not hear about this :(

Drogba out, Bendtner in. Hamsik out, Xavi in

I wont have time to do this till mid week maybe but does the value go up? Eg everyone will be getting Ronaldo so will his value increase?

I am not sure if it will go up when the game start, most probably, however, values won't change until the game actually starts so doesn't matter if everyone buys Ronaldo his value won't move until the first match kicks off so take your time

I hate it how you can simply fill up your bench with players only worth 1m which then leaves you free to get 10m players in each position. :(

yeah but that wont really work, if you read the rules you can take out players who have already played - including Captain. If one of your 10 mil players does not perform - which is likely - do you really want to bring in a player who is worth 1 mil?

Back to my previous post - I want Fabiano as captain but might well put it on someone else as Brazil play late in the group stage. If that captain performs well I will keep it, if not I will bring Fabiano in as captain

I'm going to have to do a fair bit of tweaking, wish you only needed 15 though, 23 just seems too many to miss out.

Assuming I've read the rules correctly, do I take it you can play your weaker teams' players if they play in earlier matches and then just replace them with better players if they don't get a decent score in that round? Seems to take a bit of the fun out of it imo.

Its all a gamble really. Will that player perform better? I think it makes it more fun tbh

I guess you are supposed to have a starting XI with players that are going to place in the first couple of days and if they perform well then leave them in and if not, replace them with someone who hasn't played yet?

Surely 7 subs would make more sense nowadays minor? Could have the goalkeeper and then two of each, though I'd rather it stayed at 4 too thinking about it

hello all ,

new to this fantasy and would like some info on strategy

ive gone for a balanced team but ive picked a one point player from new zealand in the goal keeper and defender positions to allow two premium strikers

my team is

cesar reserve swhwartzer bannantyne

lucio lahm marquez samuel reserve sular vidic smith

xavi eguren gattuso guarado reserve krasic emana pienaar hamsik

messi rooney reserve gilardino barrios sanchez

any thoughts would be appreciated and advice on tactics etc

from what i understand you can start a player and substitute him from your bench if he doesnt score well how many times can you do that per game and what are the pitfalls here

should i start players that are playing in the first few days etc

Oh god, they've done a 'attacking bonus' / 'defending bonus' thing as well. What is it with these feckers??

2 players from each team in the group stages is fine but think 4 players from any team for last 16 is a bit much, what's wrong with 3? A weak match and load up the players

Gone for a squad of relatively decent players and a few hit and miss players rather than 11 quality players. I'm hoping this will pay-off, probably wont though.
