Will there be enough interest for a league for the Euro's ?
Seperate thread ?
Not for me sorry. I am trying to cut back on joining any new comps right now, as I'm already struggling to keep up with them all (I might make an exception for the upcoming Tour de France which I enjoyed last year), plus I don't really know enough of the players.

Good luck to anyone who is interested, sounds like it would be reasonably similar to EPL, just over a shorter time frame.

Not time friendly either for Aussies with games starting between 11pm and 5am.

Might throw a random team together for a bit of fun , won't join the League though as my knowledge of European teams and their players is very limited these days.
I've got NFI about anything other than EPL, but I think most are in that basket.
A few vids and you should be able to wing it. Try Fantasy Football Scout for their short analysis of each country.
Maybe look at Youtube for some vids. 'Let's Talk FPL' does good ones. Stay away from 'FPL Mate'.

My early draft. Just killing some time this morning to be honest.

Also, I'm not that well informed about international football so maybe only look at this through one eye. I've done a little bit of reading - a small amount of knowledge is a dangerous thing haha

GK
Donnarumma - Italy 1.5 fav v Turkey in r1. Can be held through the group games v Sui and Wal.
Lloris (bench) - stashed for round 2 vs Hun so I'll likely bench Donnarumma.

DEF (I dont really want to spend many trades messing around here. MID/FWD typically scoring more points on av so flipping in those positions seems to be more beneficial)
Bonucci - see above for Donnarumma. Seems to be a goal threat from corners. Playable in all 3 group games. I dont know enough about the Italy left/right backs to pick one ahead of Bonucci.
Cancelo - vs Hungry first up. Known quantity from playing EPL dream team (3rd highest av for defenders playing more than 1 game). Could trade him out after r1 (Por have Ger and Fra....) or just put him on the bench for other defensive options in the team.
Maguire or Stones (maybe bench in r1) - Cro and Scotland first 2 games. I like England's defensive chances in the group and both centre backs seem to provide a goal threat from set pieces (and averaged well in the EPL). Too many left and right back options for me to pick one of those instead.
Llorente or Alba - Spain defender choice. Playable in all 3 group games (Swe, Pol and Slovakia)
Gosens (bench) - I wanted a Germany defender. Probably just stashed for round 3 v Hun. Plays in midfield and scored a few this season in Serie A.

MID
De Bruyne :love::eek:;)
Eriksen - seems to take pens and free kicks for Den. Finland first up. Belgium in r2 though.
Wijnaldum - not a strong group for Holland, I wanted Depay as one of my Dutch players but FWD is stacked with options so Wij will do.
Foden or Mount (maybe bench depending if I play an England defender instead) - an option to access England's attaching threat. Might need a new plan here though as I'd want Kane in r2 (or r1 - see FWDs) and I'd likely hold my Eng defender. Hmmm
Malinovskyi (bench) - I like him vs Macedonia (r2) and Austria (r3). Set pieces, good stats for goals/assists. Gut pick.

FWD
Lukaku - vs Russia r1. Playable vs anyone really. Should take pens. Belgium to go deep into the tournament so can ride him home.
Ronaldo (captain) - vs Hungry. Targeting the fixture. Planning to trade him to Kane in r2 (as Por vs Ger)
Morata - vs Sweden. I like Spain's group and Morata should take pens I think(?) - I'm tempted by Depay though for this 3rd spot (as my 2nd Dutch player) or just starting with Kane (see above)

Well, thats it. I better do something useful today now.....

No salary restrictions is weird (first fantasy game I have played without them)

Just did some reading and threw this together , totally no idea to be honest

Courtois (BEL) / Pickford (ENG)

Alba (ESP) , Dumfries (NED) , Florenzi (ITA) , Hernandez (FRA) / Kjaer (AUT)

Calhanog (TUR) , Fernandes (POR) , Wijnaldum (NED) , Zinchenko (UKR) / Goretzke (GER)

Kane (ENG) , Lukaku (BEL) / Ronaldo (POR)

OK, I doubt we'll get 20 for the Euros, so I've done a league for S11 & SCS.
Hopefully combined, we get at least 10 and have a ding-dong battle whilst we wait for EPL to kick off.

Code is 979210.
Just joined the League , but if you have other more credentialled coaches that need a spot , happy for you to remove me from the League.

Good lord , I have only heard of those that have played in the EPL.

Better spend some time researching the better fancied teams 😀

I’ve joined too, but happy to move out to free up space too. I can’t see myself staying up to see starting teams!
