What a start it has been! There hasn’t been a better world cup as far as entertainment goes that I’ve seen, and it goes further back than that. With a clear break in gameweeks today it’s time to assess what to do with our 2 trades for the upcoming gameweek. Remember, we get to completely re-do our teams for the knock-out stages!
Personally I’ve been pretty average in the foxsports game, of course it was my late transfers that set me back. The team I posted in my reveal scored far better, but what can you do. I’ve had a draft between a few mates that has been very fun to play and I highly recommend everyone to try it out for the next premier league season, or even the knockout stages! It will certainly be something we pump up and consider moving into pre-season, but enough on that.
With 1 round to go in the group stages, focus your next 2 trades on improving your team for the next round of fixtures only. Make sure you take into account who is automatically through and who has everything to play for, the results may show. I’d make sure you have guys like Muller, Oscar and Neymar who all have crucial clashes coming up. RVP is out with suspension for the next game, so he needs to go. The other player of note if Yaya Toure, who’s brother tragically passed away last week. He is staying at the world cup, but who knows how he will be affected. In defence I like Switzerland as a differential, I also reckon Shaqiri may be in for a big one. Feel free to post any trade queries in the comments!
We’ll be back for a wrap-up of the group stages after their completion on Friday, with the knock-out stage of the competition due to begin on Saturday night. Good luck to everyone and more importantly, come on you Aussies!
