Euro U21's Competition, Potty Style!Thanks for reading Euro U21’s Competition, Potty Style!

Good Evening and welcome to the launch of my Summer Competition. Given as UEFA have left all us good fantasy folk stranded with no actual competition to play I thought I would step forward to try and fill the void a bit with my own little competition, just to keep us entertained. The competition is based on the Under 21 European Tournament which starts on Friday 16th June. Screw UEFA then, let’s get on with it…

Your aim is to gather as many points as possible, its that simple.
Follow this link to the UEFA site to find all you need to know when selecting your men who’ll hopefully bring you European Glory (then click on the Under 21 tab).

Lets Play ‘Its A Pre-Tournament Gamble’

The Rules.
A – Select 5 players from any position you wish.
B – Highlight one as your Captain (C) for double points.
C – Your men may come from just one of the Under 21 teams or a pick and mix from any.
D – Your five man team must be picked ahead of the tournament starting, hence its all a Potty gamble.
E – There will be two groups which I’ll draw on Monday at 9pm, with the top four after the group stage is complete making the semi-finals stage.

The Potty Points System!!!!
All your players will gain points as follows…

Appearance (and even off the bench) = 15pts
Goalkeeper/Defender cleansheet = 25pts
Goalkeeper/Defender conceeding = -10pts per goal
Any player making an assist = 20pts per assist
Any player scoring = 30pts per goal
Yellow or Red Card flashed = -5pts & -8pts respectively.

Now pick your 5 star men from these teams…

FYR Macedonia
Czech Republic

The 1st part of the competition, and your 5 picks as per above, are for the group stages only. You will get to pick a different squad after that but stay tuned for details should you qualify that far.

So do a wee bit of research then post those men of yours below.
Cheers my dears x

  1. FF247 league sits in #7 in the league’s rank after gw 1. Not that bad.

    • We be higher if you chip in a bit more. ;)

    • We won’t get much higher than that either as I’ve shut the league to new entrants. Others have left theirs open and are tweeting the codes out to try and get people with high scores to join in an attempt to win that particular honour. Although we did somehow have someone join last night! He went top but was obviously just trawling leagues to join. I kicked him out.

  2. Line-ups for Game 1

  3. My team as of now, but could drop Italian defender so I can change my front line and add Djurdjevic.

    • The hell with it, I am going with my gut and not the stats. Petagna out for Bernardesch

    • Bernardesch, Kownacki and Djurdjevic in for the front 3 I had. Let’s go!!

      • Yeah Kownacki is in. So is Zivkovic.

        • You sneaky DMC, didn’t think anyone be on Kownacki since he was suspended the first game.

        • Yeah, I had heard about him and I had him for my first draft. Then I realized he was suspended so he got out, but they need to win this one and play at home so it’s give or take. Sweden are hard to break though so there is a risk involved. Whtat eventualy led me to go for hiim is that I can’t really see any inform forwards out there. So got Abraham and him as the only two strikers in a 3-5-2 formation!

    • My lot

  4. Mito

    Any opinions one way or t’other on this guy?
    Colombian from Independiente Medellin who’s been in Finland the past year.

    • GP,

      What’s the feeling for the season ahead amongst Rangers supporters?

      • One of positivity amongst the number I speak to Kop.

        New signings are always exciting for most supporters but although i think many were needed. We have two Mexicans finalising work permits just now to take the number of new signings to seven and we have two improved bids in for Jamie Walker from Hearts and Graham Dorrans from Norwich.

        Basically apart from goalkeeper and full backs, it’s a brand new team.

        Being a realist though a second huge turnover of players in two summer’s worries me but if it’s a new manager it’s to be expected and he needs to be judged on his own players.

        Eight games just to get to the Europa League group stage is another concern because making that is in the board’s remit to the manager.

    • Sorry Gp, I vaguely remember him and I think it was more for some games with the youth national squad. Don’t think he played much in Colombia before leaving, but could be wrong. I really have nothing to say on him, just haven’t paid attention to him and the little I did see him, I don’t remember him standing out.

      Hopefully he works out for you guys.

  5. This is me. Best of luck everyone!

      • ohhh, you went for the Macedonia killing. I thought about making Djurdjevic captain, but wondered if Macedonia is really that bad or simply got overwhelmed by Asensio who is just a freak. So went with the safer option in Meyer.

        • I’ve stuck with your mate Mito :)

        • :cuss:

        • Yeah I did but I don’t think Macedonia are that bad. I didn’t see the game but they actually had more shots (on and off) than Spain! Also, there’s the risk the game gets all Balcanian and all that so it is a risk capo pick. But you said I needed to contribute more for FF247’s league position, so here I am contributing (to get us lower!)!

  6. Another VAR goal decision on the confederations cup! FFS! Can’t they not make these decisions faster?

  7. Hey guys

  8. Rusnak assist (sorry England supporters)!
