Poland v Greece and Russia v Czech Rep on tap today!
(I got a few dogs in those fights, meself)

It will be interesting (fun?) to be able to tweak your subs in/out during the round.
Also, waiting nervously to swap that captain's armband and prevent any disasters.

The little automated 'Assistant Manager' feature is nifty — but I don't know if I can trust him. LOL :D
I know one thing: he's forced me to do a lot of research I didn't want, checking up on his 'facts'
like so-and-so isn't playing this week... what? You little turd, yes he is. etc.

I'm going with Assistant Mgr Li'l Turd's pick for my captain, actually. Just for grins.
(But I've got my finger on the button to change it to Kril's captain as soon as his effs up.) :wink:

Have at youse! :dual:

So far, zero points. On the other hand, none of my players have played yet. :p

Coming in hot with 2 points from Polanski, who should've scored at least once... :P
Tonight a few of my players will play, Robben and Sneijder... I don't feel playing Denmark players for fear of losing a trillion points with how many goals the Dutch will score (not biased at all)

Heh, looks like Polanski is in a lot of squads, balancing out the €.

Did you notice the McDonalds game gave him the assist for Poland's goal (initially)?
I was all "wow, I've hit the bargain-player jackpot," and then they moved it off him. :|

So, I used the 'active' subs thingy and benched Polanski's 2 for someone I hope will do better.
Wow, it's nerve-wracking to see those 2 points come OFF your score... even though it'll probably help in the end.
:shock:

Also, changed my captain. (Stupit Assistant Mgr Li'l Turd!)

Zero pts and 11 pts, respectively.

16 points so far, goals from Lewandowski and Shirokov. :D

Not a bad start I guess. Poland conceeded though, lost my cleanie from Piszczek. Only one goal though, on the bright side.

Tzorvas didn't play though, to Given should sub in. Not that I antipate a ROI cleanie against the Croats. :lol:

EDIT: astute observers will note that I have no England players in my team. That's how little faith I have in them this tournament.

It's a bad thing when someone completely leaves out his own country's players from a fantasy team. :D

I literally only care about the Germany Portugal game.

That is all.

Yeah, seriously. Look at that group of death. Who designed that damned thing??

As a side note, the FF site is going out of its way to point out that I'm the lowest-ranked person in the entire site. Nobody has played yet!

Yeah, I was going to post about this, but forgot.
Same here — no England doodz. (and yet, 2 Rep O' Ireland doodz!)

There's just no way to warrant or justify including England players — even if Rooney was playing, I'd prefer my strikers.
(and I couldn't even manage to fit in RvP, which may come back to haunt me.)

Wealth of riches from other countries, relatively speaking.


Netherlands v Denmark should be a good game, but yeah,
can't wait for the Germ/Port mash-up.

:ninja:

Thank goodness for the captain-switching option! RvP drops captaincy after the games today, Xavi grabs it for tomorrow versus Italy. Fortunately, at least, I reaped the benefits of Anderson at goalie. :D

Oh noes! Worthless orange Dutch team is worthless. :cry:
REALLY BAD NEWS DEPT.: That was your easy game, Holland....
YOU'RE IN THE GROUP OF DEATH! Only gets harder from here.

I'm thinking maybe players from Group of Death teams aren't so great for fantasy purposes.
Hmm, Sneijder —> Ribery?

@ Sundae: I had Andersen too — was gonna swap him for Given tomorrow,
but I guess I'll leave that nice 7 on the board, huh? :D

Half hour until Germ/Port nil/nil screws up our scores even worse.
