In Round Discussion – GW1

Reading Time: 1 minute

Just one game down and there’s already plenty of goals, celebrations and controversy! Fred did himself no favours in winning that penalty but I’m sure Neymar owners will take it! Feel free to post your thoughts during the round, personally I’m very happy having kicked off with Oscar and Neymar. NOTE: Fox sports are having some troubles with the points allocation. Bonuses have not yet been awarded (I expect Neymar to get 3 and Oscar 2), while it seems every player has kept a clean sheet when they shouldn’t have. Hopefully these glitches are patched up quickly, plenty to look forward to tonight. Come on you Aussies!

    Little bit off with my Neymar choke call haha… Had Oscar so reasonably happy so far. Disappointed they still haven’t fixed the clean sheet or added the bonus points! Maybe the choke was ill placed. 😛

    i had oscar and neymar, and even better in ” the real dream team ” as brazil and mexico are playing twice in there round 1 before we can make changes, ive looked thru many other teams and no body has taken advantage of having 2 mexicans and brazilians in there team and having one of them as captain, i had oscar captain he got more points than neymar, i reckon i could be right near the top, looking forward to both these teams playing there 2nd match, i may be heading for about 150 for just 2 players. already have 70 just for those 2 alone.

    Van Persie and Robben owners… You haven’t even faced Australia yet :/ enjoy!

    Surely Holland jump right into World Cup contentions, defeating a very confident Spain by 5 goals to 1 after having onto conceded 3 times in the last two major tournament finals (Euro & WC). The attack is flying and excelling and when your right back can play balls like that, then surely your attack is one of the best five in the tournament I did tip Holland to win but they’ve exceeded all expectations.

    Holland vs Vrazil in the final? And a 4th final loss for Netherlands? I may be jumping to conclusions and thinking too fast but it’s too exciting! It’s the bloody World Cup!!!

    Aguero as captain has really fucked me over. Koscielny not picked… Thought he was locked 🙁 Bentaleb replaces him… Lol 🙁

    On 55 with Bentaleb and De Bruyne to go, with my luck De Bruyne won’t even get a game.

    Well would you look at that, 3 BPS for YToure yet no Goals or Assists. BPS have come in weee.

      Saw that, and had him captain so kinda happy! Perhaps they are taking into consideration how a player actually plays as opposed to just goals and assists… Shocked!

    High scoring game! Sitting on 90 with Hazard, De Bruyne and the Russian GK to come. Had three defs missing too so played a man down…

    Transfer deadline is tonight/tomorrow morning, would like to see how the Belgians go before making any moves.

      Nice, go for gold. I’m sure theres plenty of people at the top of overall who arent eligible to win the grand prize!

    I traded Shaqiri for Cuadrado and Toure for Muller, I thought Germany’s group ( and his form/positioning) was too good to miss and I didn’t want to get rid of Hazard (great group) or Oscar.

    I chucked the C on Muller for this round, if they destroyed Portugal, they should be able to annihilate Ghana (hopefully).

    • N1qQ45 4R3 K1nG5

      I wouldn’t be so sure about Ghana being annihilated, Ghana are a very underrated squad. Four years ago they were in the same group as Germany as lost by a mere goal and went on to be a kick away from the semi’s. Four years later the squad is basically the same but much better and even though you could say the same for Germany, I recon Ghana will put up a fight and may even score one or two.
      3-1 or 2-1 is my prediction but should be a highly entertaining game.

      Also, Boateng brothers fight it out again 🙂

      Decent trades though, as we know Toure is unpredictable and could score a hat trick against Japan or be denied 100 times, trade at your own peril!

  8. N1qQ45 4R3 K1nG5

    Did say Ghana would surprise you, they come away with a point and honestly looked the better team and deserved the win, but what’s done is done.

    On 56 with Pjanic and De Bruyne to go so doing alright, also surprised that Argentina couldn’t put more past Iran.

      • N1qQ45 4R3 K1nG5

        They beat us Egyptians 7-3 on aggregate to qualify so I have to know everything about them lol (think ive already said that but cbb looking back up haha).

    Nice work with the Ghana prediction ^^

    So how’s everyone going in this so far? I’m on 182 points so far, 6th in Oz about mid 20s overall. 9 points off the Aussie leader.

    Pretty annoyed at myself, I missed out on trading in Round 2 coz I fell asleep on the couch waiting for the Belgium game to finish and missed the deadline lol. Cost myself 10 points right there…grrr.

        120 points and god knows what in Aus, good thing my reveal team was a whole lot better than my final one 🙂 Focused on a draft instead, been good fun. Must be done for the epl!

        • baysietoff

          152 and 179th in Oz. Couldn’t pick a clean sheet to save myself!

          Also after far too much thinking went RVP as captain over Benzy and Robben. 🙁

          Now I need a couple of strikers for this round that are definately going to play! $595k to spend. Neymar and Nani feel right.

        • Dan

          I’d be up for an EPL draft if theres one going through the site…doing a DT Shiva Ultimate Footy league this year and it craps all over normal DT imo.
