#EURO2020 #EUROfantasy
Kimpembe + Lloris🇫🇷-

Simple choices for me

Apart from Varane they are the only nailed French defensive assets, Kimpembe at €5.6M is the cheapest + I mainly want full backs for defenders hence Lloris> Varane

🇨🇭 followed by 🇭🇷/ 🇪🇸 shouldn’t be the hardest defensive challenge..
therefore it allows me to triple up without using transfers for the QF.

Of course this is based on the assumption that they win, however I think 🇭🇷 or 🇪🇸 should be comfortable and if they nullify Shaqiri by crowding out the midfield they won’t concede too many chances.
Benzema 🇫🇷-

With Mbappe shifting to the left side, Benzema’s central positioning provides a easier avenue for goals

A brace against Portugal including a penalty (gold dust) secured my decision. In a short tournament form is essential, and will likely be maintained over 4 games
Stekelenburg + Dumfries 🇳🇱 -

Half of my 🇳🇱 quadruple.

A bold move, yes but one which is logical.

They are a better team than 🇨🇿, 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 and 🇩🇰 (who I expect them to face in the QF).

Dumfries provides a huge attacking threat and the keeper is great value for money.

None of the..
3 sides which they can face before the semi final boast a particularly menacing attack either.

I’m quite confident they beat the 🇨🇿 ensuring I will have 4 players in the QF (less transfers needed).

I also expect them to beat Denmark (assumption), without conceding many chances.
Gini 🧞‍♂️ + Depay 🇳🇱 -

The other half of my quadruple.

Like I said, I expect them to get to the Semis at least, and wouldn’t be surprised if they surpasses this.

Providing this happens Depay will be in consideration for POTT.

I’ve been so impressed by him. His movement....
passing, positioning and build up play has been fantastic. Defences will struggle to defend against him without the system being tailored to covering his utilisation of inside channel running especially.

Such a high ceiling given his involvement, which is essential for fantasy.
Gini 🧞‍♂️, like his teammate has been brilliant. A brace against 🇲🇰 was just the icing on the cake, his positioning is one of a No. 10 and one thing which has gone unnoticed is his Gundogan esque underlying runs from deep (highly effective as seen from FPL).

Bullish on the 🇳🇱
Lukaku 🇧🇪 -

3 games, 3 top performances

Even with Portugal reverting to a 4-3-3 from their dire 4-2-3-1, I still feel Belgium will beat them and Lukaku’s involvement in everything will be apparent as per usual.

Left sided runs into the half space channel against Semedo = ⚽️
I expect Belgium to beat Portugal and also Italy which means Lukaku can remain till at least the SF

This is based on an assumption, but I think Italy may struggle against Belgium. (Will discuss in the future should it arise)

Ronaldo and KDB only players I’m afraid of not owning
Spinazzola + Insigne 🇮🇹-

Italy have been brilliant so far and I expect them to have way too much for Austria.

I don’t really expect Austria to make much if anything and as such the clean sheet looks fairly secure. Combine this with Spinazzola’s excellent attacking threat....
which we have seen, and it screams a monster haul.

One thing I really like about this partnership on the pitch is how Insigne almost plays as a inside forward rather than a winger, so Spinazolla is required to hold the width increasing attacking involvement.

Insigne has....
looked dangerous, and will continue to cause the Austrian defence problems. I think he’s been slightly unlucky in terms of output, and returns for managers are due.

With an assumption they reach the QF at least, and only a double up, I think it’s a fairly risk adverse option.
Forsberg 🇸🇪 -

One game punt.

I’ve learnt not to ignore form, especially not in a small time frame.

I expect them to beat Ukraine, then lose the QF, so I will take him out beforehand. Ukraine 🇺🇦 were poor last game.

Forsberg (€7.7M) is fairly cheap, allows premium forwards

Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 shouldn’t be overlooked but neither are they the biggest threat.

Given the Danish system and personnel, they are difficult to build and create chances against.

I expect them to beat Wales and as seen against Russia he has attacking threat + €4.5M = cheap.
Havertz 🇩🇪 + Stones 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 -

I’ve included them together as I think the game between England and Germany is a real 50/50.

England have the better squad but Germany the perfect system to counter the 4-3-3 by overloading the wide spaces and going 3-2-5 on the ball.

Both will.....
start and are nailed which is a positive.

I’m almost hedging my bets with this play, I expect the one that returns in this game to also return to the QF so I think given I have no wildcard it’s a sensible move.

Havertz is in brilliant form and Stones has been very secure.
Enabler - Colwill🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

I understand given we have manual substitutions people don’t like this strategy

However it worked for me last week in the form of Nego 🇭🇺, so I’m doing it again

I don’t think it’s worth compromising 2 players for the sake of it when only 1 will likely play

Ranked in order

(Depending on who you own)

Saturday - 1. Immobile, 2. Insigne

Sunday - 1. Depay 2. Gini 🧞‍♂️ 3. Lukaku 4. Ronaldo 5. KDB

Monday - 1. Benzema 2. Mbappe 3. Griezman

Tuesday - 1. Forsberg 2. Havertz
A lot of work went into this team so for now I’m pretty much set on it, however I am open to new ideas so please comment if you have any.

I hope that’s helped👍🏽

Good luck!

Tactical weakness - England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 team:

I start by saying I have massive respect for Southgate, been a brilliant ambassador for what the country represents and seems like a very likeable man

However I think this lineup highlights a tactical weakness:

1: Missing...

Players in the half spaces -

If the Czech 🇨🇿 set up in a low block, which I expect them to do considering they need a point to top the group, the same problem that occurred against 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 will arise.

Lack of numbers in the half spaces won’t allow any centre backs to be drawn... Image
hence the runners in Sterling (and Saka to an extent) become highly ineffective.

2. Kalvin Phillips playing as an advanced No 8.

Whilst he’s individually been good the role isn’t made for him. The role requires better ball progression and progressive passing, Bellingham.... Image

Lukaku 🇧🇪 -

A brace against Russia was just the cherry on the cake.

He was involved as always and looked a serious threat.

Denmark without their talisman (I want to specify I wish him and his family the best), will struggle to play out of the Belgian press.

= chances.
Kane 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 -

In my opinion the best striker in the world with world class creativity behind him.

Scotland can’t play too cautiously, they need a result, once England get one the floodgates could very well open.

Below average first game but I expect him to come back as he does.

No chip approach for BGW18 and DGW19;
(2nd wildcard exempt, unless purely using it to accommodate, 1 or 2 of these GWs).
#FPL #FPLCommunity @OfficialFPL
Firstly, let’s look at the chip which has been discussed the most within the FPL community, the free hit.
The free hit has the potential to single-handedly swing an individual’s season for the positive, due to potentially having 22 games played for your team, including differentials with favourable fixtures for the particular GW. Let’s first take a look at BGW18. The free hit is....
something which you want to use to aggressively, hence in a DGW rather than BGW, that is my first problem with using it in BGW18. Secondly, the fixtures in BGW18 aren’t to appealing to me for two reasons; unpredictability of results and the lack of “high ceiling”..
