I'm not sure about Jelavic, he's not a starter for Croatia is he?

Even if he starts I wouldn't bet on him scoring. Much. He scored only one official goal for Croatia. Until now we never played the way that should suit him. Maybe it will change, can't tell what Bilić is thinking. No one can really.

Hopefully the shorter length of the tournament will keep me interested. I usually get bored/forget about the EPL one. :D

kpain, would Mandzukic be a good pick? He's a 6m rated MF

MF? :D

He is considered as a starter and isn't just a striker depending on his midfield but assists as well. Personally i'd pick him ahead of Jelavić.

Still, Srna is the best choice of all Croatian players IMO.

I could not figure out something. When I place Neuer instead of Szczęsny, the assistant says: "Szczęsny is on your bench but plays before Neuer. You should swap them and use substitutions if he fails to perform.."

What does that "fails to perform" mean? Playing bad or not playing? So what I want to ask, is it possible to change my 11 during the gameweeks? If I pick Polanski in first 11 and lets assume he gets 2 points, can I change him with Young (who I think will get more than 2). I do not want to take the risk of picking Szczęsny instead of great Neuer (who will concede maximum 1 goal in the whole tournament in my opinion:)).

This can be seem as a stupid question but what the assistant said is really confused me.

Yeah you can make substitutions during the game week, but as soon as you've made that sub then you can't reverse it. So as you've suggested, if Szczesny were to get 1 point and you thought Neuer would get more, then you could switch the two before Neuer played.

Maaan, reckon I've changed my team about 10 times now :D Have Kerzhakov, Robben, Podolski, Dzagoev, Young, Srna, Rosicky and Modric as my main point scorers but am so tempted to put CRonaldo in there. Gah.

I've also been slugging away at trying to find a team I'm pleased with.

Think I'm going to stick with what I've just come up with:

Sczcezny

Lahm

Balzaretti

Papadopoulos

Shirokov

Mandzukic

Affelay

Ozil

Iniesta

Kerzhakov

Lewandowski

Bench: Lindegaard, Debuchy, Benzema, Granqvist

Who is on your bench?

Also, although your team looks really strong on paper, a lot of them are playing tough opponents (Debuchy and Benzema vs England, Alba and Torres vs Italy, Young vs France, Ozil vs Portugal, Ronaldo vs Germany), so might not generate as much points as their reputation promises.

I'm going for a different approach of trying to get a team who play weaker opponents. Ofcourse you need some big team/marquee players as well. With the number of transfers allowed in this game, I feel it would be wrong to pick a team for the tournament, instead of a team for the gameday.

I've changed my team again:

Sczcezny (vs Greece) - Papadopoulos (vs Poland) - Kadlec (vs Russia) - Lahm (vs Portugal) - Yarmolenko (vs Sweden) - Dzagoev (vs Czech Republic) - Affelay (vs Denmark) - Srna (vs Ireland) - Ozil (vs Portugal) - Kerzhakov (vs Czech Republic) - Lewandowski (vs Greece)

Bench: Lindegaard (vs Netherlands) - Granqvist (vs Ukraine) - Debuchy (vs England) - Benzema (vs England)

Bench: Lindegaard (vs Netherlands) - Granqvist (vs Ukraine) - Debuchy (vs England) - Benzema (vs England)

Gone for a similar approach as well, will change it all around after the first game week.

Current team is:

Chalkias - Greece

Papadopoulos - Greece

Alba - Spain

Young - England

Rosicky - Czechs

Dzagoev - Russia

Srna - Croatia

Modric - Croatia

Robben - Netherlands

Kerzhakov - Russia

Podolski - Germany

Subs being Stekelenburg, M Olsson, Lescott and *whispers in embarrassment* Stephen Ward *shameful look*

Yeah, it's hardly worth going strong in defence considering the most you generally get from defenders is 6 points for the clean sheets. Anything else is a bonus whereas midfielders only get a point less for scoring and also more likely to and more likely to assist too. Add to that the fact that this game enables you to play 2-5-3 formation

I know my team has tough opening fixtures but I want the players I want from the start! I don't want to pick a team for the opening games and then not be able to get the team I want due to changes in player values.

Also, there's no guarantees. You might think Poland will keep a clean sheet against Greece or whatever, but who knows!?

No 'big' side has an easy opening fixture. I'd say the Dutch come closest, and they have Denmark

Set piece threat ;)

EDIT - Got a dilema going on. I was thinking of replacing Ibra with Kerzhakov but I'd have too many Russians in my side so then I was thinking of doing the following ... Ibra -> Kerzhakov, Akinfeev -> Stek, Srna -> Mandzukic but dunno if it'll be worthwhile.

Changed my team about 500 times but think I've finally settled:

Given

Pyatov

St Legder

J Alba

Balzaretti

M Olsson

Padastathopoulus

Ozil

Ribery

Affelay

Shirokov

Eriksen

Podolski

Kerzakhov

Lewandowski

Not sure if having an Italian and a Spaniard in defence for the first game is a brilliant idea though. That said could easily see the game finishing 0-0.

Edit - just realised you can play two at the back so have brought in Eriksen for the Italian.

So am I right in thinking that I can change some subs in before they play if I don't think my starters have enough points?

For example... I have a Russian and Czech in defence. If either concede, I can stick my Spanish or Irish player in before they play there game?

Same with Gotze. If I start him, but he doesn't play (Injured apparently?) then before the Croatian game I can bring Kranjcar in?

Dinamo da Calheta:

Pletikosa

Given

Kadlec

Piszczek

Jordi Alba

Lescott

Balzaretti

Ozil

Schweinsteigger

Shirokov

Konoplyanka

Busquets

Kerzhakov

Lewandowski ©

Benzema

Don't intended to start Kadlec this round but given for that subs rule I can easily replace him later with Busquets, thanks for the tip. :D:thup:

Hint: Kadlec scores Czech Republic's penalty kicks. ;) That is already being very altruistic of mine given usually I don't like sharing my fantasy team before the first match!

Just made 6 changes, now have:

Given, Lindegaard

Zhirkov, Papadopoulos, Alba, Coentrao, Rakitskiy

Shirokov, Sneijder, Srna, Mandzukic, Ben Arfa

Muller, Lewandowski, Robben

EDIT: Another change, Given in for Cech. Keep second guessing over them all.

Aargh, I want to make another change. Piszczek or Obraniak in as second Pole and for whom? Pisz for Pap probably if I pick him, don't want 3 defenders in same group.
