6500 dead may be the only one not playing for the money.

Once the first game kicks off we should be able to look at each other’s teams. Wait until you see mine, I feel as though I’ve gone a bit loopy with how I’ve played it. 30 transfers seems a lot to me so come three weeks time our teams will look nothing like they do now.

Report Emitdeb November 20, 2022 4:58 PM GMT
If kenbo's happy, I'm happy. But this is no Marathon. It's more a 2 furlong sprint and Whippin has broke well with a perfectly thought out strategy.. The rest of us have to hope Ecuador concede and Valencia doesn't get a hat trick! Laugh

I fricking almost picked Valencia too.. Cry
Report s.kenbo November 20, 2022 5:05 PM GMT
They need to rest Valencia now. They don’t want to aggravate that little injury!

It may be hard getting a striker off the pitch though who has two goals in the first half of a World Cup match!

It all about strategy. So far Whippin has played it perfectly. A Qatar goal would diminish his points quite a lot.

I suppose most transfers would be best used once the teams were announced. It would be better if you knew how many transfers your opponents had used.
