Gameround 2 Review: England and Spain Crash Out!

June 22, 2014 10:59 pm

What a gameround… how crazy was Group D? Costa Rica are through to the knockout stage with a game to spare, whilst England, along with either Italy or Uruguay, will head straight home after playing just 3 matches. THE WINNERS A huge well done to all our FiT Prize winners. T. Weidner is our GR2 World Champion, very well played. 104 points was a massive score. 4 transfers were used to bring in Messi, Benzema, Muller and the disappointing Costa. Captain Robben and 3 Belgian defenders did the rest. We will be in touch soon to sort out your £250...

Gameround, Transfer and H2H Schedule

June 16, 2014 1:49 pm

The gameweek switches from one to the next the morning after the last fixture of that gameround – so, for example: IMPORTANT: It can take up to 30 minutes for your transfers to refresh, so don’t panic if you haven’t received new ones at exactly 11am.

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 2) by Ben Randall

June 5, 2014 4:11 pm

Here’s part 2 of 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 E: Switzerland, Ecuador, France & Honduras: Goalkeeper France, Hugo Lloris – Club: Totthenham Hotspur – International Caps: 55 Caps – Value: 5.8M. I was expecting a few clean sheets bonuses from this man, but after watching Ecuador last night I’m a little worried. Still, he’s a great Goalkeeper and he’s nailed on. Defender Switzerland,...

World Cup Group A Preview – by Ben Harrison

June 5, 2014 11:09 am

Despite this group being one of the most looked upon, due to it containing the host nation, I am going to try and keep it as balanced and easy to follow as possible. So, obviously there is a huge expectation on Brazil, who have not had much success in recent tournaments. But with many tipping this to be their year, I am not sure it is that straight forward, and many others are saying they will either ‘flop/win, with there being no middle ground, and I would have to agree with them. Just a quick reminder of the 3 opening...

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...
