Gameround 4 Review: All 8 Group Winners Progress!

July 2, 2014 12:07 pm

The favourites all went through, but boy, some of them made it very difficult for themselves. We have 2 days of rest before the first of 4 cracking games kicks off. THE WINNERS A huge well done to all our FiT Prize winners. Drew Preece is our GR4 World Champion, very well played. 99 points was a massive score, and he just beat Artur Milewski on goals scored, as points were tied. Before Belgium kicked off, Drew couldn’t have dreamed of winning – but a super substitute performance from Lukaku and a composed assist and finish from De Bruyne, propelled...

Unlimited Transfers: Read here for full details

June 25, 2014 4:02 pm

A month or so before the World Cup started we announced that every manager would be able to make unlimited transfers after the group stages. So, at just after 11am on Friday you will be able to buy and sell players without using up any transfer credits. The unlimited transfer period will end at precisely 4.50pm (British Summer time) on Saturday, 10 minutes before Brazil vs Chile kicks off. We will also switch off the PlayerDAQ for the duration of unlimited transfers, freezing player values. You can then buy and sell players at will, just as if we were in...

World Cup Group E Preview – by Rob Wright

June 12, 2014 8:58 am

Group E  Today’s the day!!! So, you’ve had some blogs about the groups and now it’s my turn to give you a run down of Group E. Well this looks on paper this looks like a 2 horse race to see who qualifies, and with a group consisting of France, Switzerland, Honduras and Ecuador you would be forgiven for thinking that, but I want to delve a little deeper and see if if Ecuador or Honduras have any chance at all or are just making up the numbers in this group. France, They certainly have had a huge variance of...

World Cup Group H Preview – by Liam Whitlock

June 8, 2014 11:50 am

Let’s get straight to the point, Belgium are the bookies favourites to win the group and are dark horses for some to lift the trophy. Will Capello’s experience be enough to see Russia through with Belgium, or will South Korea and Algeria mount a challenge? Belgium: How they qualified: Eastern European nations, Croatia and Serbia are traditionally tough teams to overhaul when it comes to qualifying for a major tournament, but the Belgians made a mockery of that. Among their eight victories, two came away from home against both of those nations, while 10 points were collected from the four...

World Cup – Big Names Blog (Part 1) by Ben Randall

June 3, 2014 9:53 am

Here’s my group by group run-down of some of the big name players I’m currently considering for my squad. I’ve tried to include a few differentials, as the likes of Neymar, Robben, Reus and Oscar will already be in many an iTeam. Group A: Brazil, Croatia, Mexico & Cameroon: GoalkeeperBrazil, Julio Cesar – Club: Queens Park Rangers – International Caps: 78 – Value: 6.0M. Currently on loan at Toronto, he should be Scolari’s number 1. Awarded the ‘Golden Glove’ in last years Confederations Cup win, his recent international performances have been top notch. DefenderBrazil, Thiago Silva – Club: Paris Saint-Germain...

World Cup Group G Preview – by Dale Henderson

June 1, 2014 9:48 am

Group G looks like a very hard group to predict indeed. It consists of Germany, USA, Portugal and Ghana, these are four teams which have big reputations, and in all honesty I cannot call it. You cannot look past Germany for group winners, but they have games in the north of Brazil and two early kick offs, with the temperature being boiling hot, so expect this to be a factor. You may think that this shouldn’t be, but even the local Brazilian teams who play in that region will not play a game at that time, so make of that...

World Cup Group B Preview – by Gregg Livingstone

May 30, 2014 11:08 am

Group B consists of holders Spain, Netherlands, Chile and Australia. We will see a replay of the 2010 final between Spain and Holland and we also have the lowest FIFA ranked team in the competition in the shape of Australia. Chile make up the group and I can see them making it interesting for the 2 favourites. Spain and Holland will fancy their chances of progressing as the top 2 but with Chile’s brand of attacking football they could worry the big guns. Australia have it all to do and with an opening game against Chile, they really need points...
