Noob21 Vs RickyButton - both teams are unreal, but Ibra is god.

stotty1982 Vs Gorando - really weak match, gone with Kiraly just for the sake of the trousers

Bliss Seeker Vs darren1983 really really tough, close ran thing but darren's defence wins this out for me

adhikapp Vs given1legend - whilst benteke keeps missing, adhi still wins

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo - kalinic is the last minute

Andyh21 Vs georginho_juventusygr - maybe the cm would be overrun but not when modric is on his game. 2-1

Noob21 Vs RickyButton Very close but the pace of Isigne and then Ronaldo plus the better GK edges it.

stotty1982 Vs Gorando Better defence and attack.

Bliss Seeker Vs darren1983 Better defence, slightly better in midfield too and in attack vs Bliss' defence they'd take the win I feel.

adhikapp Vs given1legend Benteke wins this for Adhikapp.

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo Really close but the two forwards supplied by Silva behind them and the wing support gives Reddiablo the victory.

Andyh21 Vs georginho_juventusygr Not getting past that defence. Superior up front but Andy has the better midfield but it's not enough.

Noob21 Vs RickyButton - both teams are good but just have a slight preference for Noobs. Though Zlatan almost won it for Ricky

stotty1982 Vs Gorando - stotty has Buffon so swings it for me

Bliss Seeker Vs darren1983 - voting for yourself is lame

adhikapp Vs given1legend - adhikapp has the better attack and defence while given has the better midfield. Attack & defence win it for me

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo - another tight match up but cougar's team just about edges it

Andyh21 Vs georginho_juventusygr - while georginho has Morata, De Gea, De Rossi and Modric win it for Andy

Noob21 Vs RickyButton - Two strong teams, just fancy Noobs attack to cause Ricky's defence more problems.

stotty1982 Vs Gorando - Two not so strong teams, I fancy stotty has the better defence and midfield and Gorando's attack isn't so much better that it makes up for it.

Bliss Seeker Vs darren1983 - Really close, I think Bliss' team might just create enough for Lukaku to score more than Immobile in the end.

adhikapp Vs given1legend - I think if given had a better striker, or even a younger Robbie Keane, he might get my vote but as it is I don't think there's enough goals for him to win.

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo - Cougar to sneak a close one here I think, can't put my finger on why.

Andyh21 Vs georginho_juventusygr - de Gea saves everything that comes his way, Andy sneaks a goal...1-0

Noob21 Vs RickyButton - Noob wins this easily. I'm surprised others think Ricky's team is strong. Midfield is very unbalanced and defense is very poor apart from Toby.

Bliss Seeker Vs darren1983 - Bliss has nice midfielders but only Lukaku is capable of scoring goals. Darren has more firepower.

adhikapp Vs given1legend - Like adhi's defense and overall simply the better team.

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo -Danilo & Nainggolan will win the midfield battle and therefore win the game for Cougar.

Andyh21 Vs georginho_juventusygr - Andy will struggle to score against that defense with those two static strikers. Morata scores on big occasions so he wins it for Georginho.

95 goals in 143 games in the US! Keane is a goalscorer!

Noob21 Vs RickyButton - No contest for me personally

stotty1982 Vs Gorando - Pretty sure Kiraly is still a good keeper even at 40. The defence in front of him is good enough anyways.

Bliss Seeker Vs darren1983 - While I don't rate Immobile, the three behind him will destroy Bliss' weak defence

adhikapp Vs given1legend - I really think my team is better but I'm not voting. Up to Gizzy if he wants to award this vote to given1legend or not.

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo - Could flip a coin really, but my heart says diablo. Sorry cougar.

Andyh21 Vs georginho_juventusygr - Boring 0-0 written all over it with Georgies defensive formation and Andys slow strikers and mediocre crossers. For votes sake, Andy.

Noob21 Vs RickyButton - Apart from the GK I just feel Ricky is stronger everywhere and would win pretty comfortably.

stotty1982 Vs Gorando - I'm not impressed with either team but Gorando shades it for me with a little more creativity in the team.

Bliss Seeker Vs darren1983 - I don't like how narrow Bliss' team is but I think he dominates the midfield battle and wins by the odd goal, 2 nice teams though.

adhikapp Vs given1legend - I'm not struck on adhikapp' midfield pairing but I do like the balance of his team and think his team scores plenty of goals with those fantastic full backs supporting.

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo - Arnautovic, Silva & Candreva win this game for me, just...

Andyh21 Vs georginho_juventusygr - georginho's midfield 3 dominate the centre whilst the wing backs should provide plenty of support, I think this is a comfortable win.

Noob21 Vs RickyButton - Close one, but Noob's team slightly better I think

stotty1982 Vs Gorando - Don't think either team has much hope in the tournament, would give the edge for this match to Stotty

Bliss Seeker Vs darren1983 - Bliss' team is very narrow and I think it could lead to Darren's wingers having a field day against some weak fullbacks.

adhikapp Vs given1legend - A very nice balanced team, could do good things in the tournament and gets the win here.

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo - I wasn't sure how Red would be able to score, then I saw Cougar's defence.

Andyh21 Vs georginho_juventusygr - De Gea just about wins it here I think

Noob21 Vs RickyButton - Noob has a better attack, defence and goalkeeper.

stotty1982 Vs Gorando - Two pretty weak teams, de Bruyne swings it.

Bliss Seeker Vs darren1983 - Darren has a better attack, Bliss' team is too narrow.

adhikapp Vs given1legend - Adhi has the better team but his midfield is weak. Just edgs it.

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo - Cougar's midfield is better and pushes hhim on for the win.

Andyh21 Vs georginho_juventusygr - Big Dave saves everything, formation is much more preferable.

Candreva and Arnautovic bag plenty of goals people :) Candreva has had 10 goals both his last seasons at Lazio and scored recently for Italy as well.

They are good players but your midfield gets completely overrun. You'd struggle to keep possession and your defense will be under immense pressure.

Noob21 VS RickyButton – That team is just very strong in most areas.

Stotty1982 VS Gorando – The three behind Zaza the difference makers.

Bliss Seeker VS darren1983 – Just about sneaks it.

adhikapp VS given1legend – Defence and keeper decided it for me.

Cougar2010 VS Reddiablo – Hardly anything in this one, Reddiablo has slightly higher quality players.

Andyh21 VS georginho_juventusygr – de Gea and Nani the match winners here.

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo - I wasn't sure how Red would be able to score, then I saw Cougar's defence.

Pfft thats an experienced Turkish DL who just signed for Inter, a DR who is one of the highest rated in the EPL & Carvalho who might be 38 but only two players in Monaco's squad made more starts than him last season for a Champion's League/Europa League level team. That leaves Sigurosson who is a first choice DC at a Russian Europa League level team so again far from useless.

Noob21 Vs RickyButton - GK the difference I feel with Cech keeping the ball out of the net more than Mignolet.

stotty1982 Vs Gorando - Tough one, stotty has a few players that stand out but overall I think Gorando has a bit more quality going forwards.

Bliss Seeker Vs darren1983 - Not sure what to make of this one as both seem to have players out of position. Looks like a tough midfield battle which Bliss might edge while Hazard & Iniesta look like the danger men. Could go either way but I'm going to give it to Bliss as Lukaku seems to have a knack of finding the net when needed.

adhikapp Vs given1legend - Given looks slightly more solid in the centre of the pitch but all the action is out wide. Two wide men providing for Keane while adhi has two who like to cut in themselves. Keane maybe a little isolated and easy to deal with so I fancy one of the three behind Benteke to find a goal.

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo - Lost Isco which was a killer but I won't vote on my own match unless Red does.

Andyh21 Vs georginho_juventusygr - I play 352 on FM a fair bit as I think its one of the msot complete formations in football. It usually comes down to the fullbacks, if they get pushed back you struggle, if they get forward you win and I don't think Mertens & Nani will do much to push de Sciglio & Vrsaljko back so George for the win.

EDIT

Red voted for me so returning the favour.

I have 5 defense minded and 5 offensive minded players. Topal obviously and Candreva can also carry out their respective defensive tasks. That is a fine balance.

Erkin is fine, not too many issues with that. The Coleman you mention is from 2013...I've seen nothing the last 2 years to suggest he's anywhere near the level you say he is, and I just think Carvalho could be ok, but probably needs help from a better CB next to him to survive.

Noob21 VS RickyButton - not even Ronaldoooo can save Noob

Stotty1982 VS Gorando – Both teams are rubbish

Bliss Seeker VS darren1983 – My team pisses all over Darren's. Can't vote for myself.

adhikapp VS given1legend – Just edges it. But they're both rubbish

Cougar2010 VS Reddiablo – Meh

Andyh21 VS georginho_juventusygr – Don't like George's formation. Chill out Glenn Hoddle.

Noob21 Vs RickyButton - Good teams, RickyButton gets the win because Florenzi isnt a great fullback.

stotty1982 Vs Gorando - From good teams to terrible teams. Gorando can´t score. Stotty gets the go ahead because Király is rubbish.

Bliss Seeker Vs darren1983 Bliss will get absolutely raped. Slow old midfielders, whereas darren has a decent overall team.

adhikapp Vs given1legend - Each teams has its weakness, for given that is definitely Kadar, but he is good enough to be better than adhikapp

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo - Do rate my team, but I´m not voting for my own team. Not impressed by Darida and Sigurdsson (let alone Sigurosson whoever that is) but Cougar does have a decent side

Andyh21 Vs georginho_juventusygr - George has picked a dreadful side, but his defensive formation will keep his losses to only 2 goals or so

Suprised how many people don't rate Ozyakup and Junuzovic...

Personally I think a lot of Turks tend to be a little underrated, maybe because a lot play in Turkey and we don't hear as much about them.

I did look at Ozyakup myself which we often seemed to be doing. Overall for this match I think the attacking side of your midfield gets somewhat nullified by Kallstrom, Busquets & Parolo who all are fairly solid defensively.

Unknown is unloved

even so your team has more quality than given1's

Inconsistent forwards but on their day they form a formidable strikeforce

good full backs and 2 decent centre backs, though Chiellini is over the hill & Denayer needs to develop much more to reach his potential

Sirigu is overrated

And I thought this was an FM community who would know their players...

Oguzhan Ozyakup is Besiktas' key player at the heart of their midfield solidity. Can play DM, CM, or AM. He was a big reason why they won the Turkish league, and is most likely to start for Turkey (actually have him down for 'ones to watch' in the Euros).

Zlatko Junuzovic is Austria's and Werder Bremen's set piece specialist and talented playmaker. He plays as a CM for Bremen but is expected to play #10 for Austria with Alaba and Baumgartlinger providing the double pivot behind him.

I've got people doubting a guy who still scores 20+ a season, arguably the best player in the MLS.

Noob21 Vs RickyButton - 2 good sides, but Rickys is a really good side.

stotty1982 Vs Gorando - Just.

Bliss Seeker Vs darren1983 - Comfortably better.

adhikapp Vs given1legend - I'd love to vote for myself :D but adhi didn't vote so I won't.

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo - Think the strength in midfield makes a difference here.

Andyh21 Vs georginho_juventusygr - Can I vote for 0-0 ;) can't see where the creativity comes from in georginhos team.

stotty1982 Vs Gorando - KDB magic

Bliss Seeker Vs darren1983 - Hazard just not at it for opposition so home win.

adhikapp Vs given1legend - great at the back and well Benteke to get freak winner.

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo - nothing in it so surely can sit on fence?

Andyh21 Vs georginho_juventusygr - home win as well best chance "english" have got to win against a European giant.

Noob21 Vs RickyButton - Very tough to choose. GK nearly swung it but I think RB's team has the better outfield overall.

stotty1982 Vs Gorand - Also tough, much prefer this attack though.

Bliss Seeker Vs darren1983 - Like the balance of the midfield and attack a lot.

adhikapp Vs given1legend - 0-0 written all over it until a late Sigurdsson free kick.

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo - Far better balance to the team.

Andyh21 Vs georginho_juventusygr - Like the 4-4-f-2.

Noob21 Vs RickyButton - Draw. Florenzi is indeed often used as a wing back. But he's not really good, especially defensively. I'm not comfortable of him being a full back. If you switch El-Shaarawy to the left (where he usually plays), Florenzi needs as much help as he can get. That being said, Cristiano Ronaldo (Insigne plays on the left) is still a threat.

stotty1982 Vs Gorando - Gorando's attack is more mobile and technical. The defense is weak, but I'm not sure stotty1982's attack is strong enough to break it down.

Bliss Seeker Vs darren1983 - Bliss Seeker's aging attack force would actually do well against darren1983's defense, especially because I'm never convinced Vermaelen is a good left defender and snails are faster than Motta. But darren1983 has more technical attack force. Misfiring Immobile would still do well against Bliss Seeker's defense. 1-2.

adhikapp Vs given1legend - Draw. Despite Pedro being finished, adhikapp's attack would score one goal or two against given1legend's defense, with aging Alves committing a foul or two. But given1legend has great midfield whose forward runs would help overcome adhikapp's solid defense but weak midfield.

Cougar2010 Vs Reddiablo - Cougar2010 has the technical advantage, with Perišić being a very good winger to get past Reddiablo's right side. Reddiablo has good midfield, but his attacking duo would let him down.

Andyh21 Vs georginho_juventusygr - Andyh21's strength is the wingers. But with georginho_juventusygr having solid defense and hardworking midfielders, static Janko and Pellè would have no chance. When attacking together, georginho_juventusygr's midfield would overrun Andyh21's, ensuring goals.

And yes, I vote for myself and objectively.
