Welcome to World Cup Last 16 Live Match Chat. No more second chances, it’s do or die time. Penalties will be missed. Tears will be shed. Let’s just hope it’s German ones for once (lol, we wrote that before Wednesday, we left it in because it’s even funnier now!). From a fantasy perspective though there sort of is a 2nd chance as you can now make unlimited transfers right up until the deadline which is on Saturday at 3pm (GMT). Which is why we’ve jumped in early with a new article, we just wanted to make sure that everyone was aware. And give everyone a chance to post up that shiny new wildcard team. Just in time for Mito returning from holiday to destroy it in the comments!

After that you get 3 free transfers for the quarter-finals and then 5 for each for the semis and the final. Choose wisely then as you don’t really want to be hitting the next round with half of your team eliminated. We move onto a 2 game a day format now spread over 4 days. Or in other words that’s 4 bites at the captain cherry if you plan it correctly.

To recap then from a Fantasy perspective there are really just 4 things to be aware of right now –

1. It’s wildcard time all round.
Unlimited transfers up until KO on Saturday. That’s the main one.

2. You have a new budget of £105m, an increase of £5m from previously.
This is because, in theory, the ‘budget’ options have probably now exited stage left. This is not altogether strictly true just yet as there are a few bargains left but just be aware that the budget grip will tighten the further we progress through the rounds as some of these may indeed go home this round.

3. Price changes are in effect.
Sort of, we think… prices have increased on some players since the last round. Despite the rules stating this –
“Original player prices will remain the same until the group stage (Round 3). Upon completion of the group stage, player prices will change depending on performances”.

‘Upon completion of the group stages’… they already went up prior to that. And there’s no indication as to when that may happen again, or indeed when, or of course why. Basically then they’re making it up as they go along as usual.

4. Increase to 4 players per team as opposed to 3.
As it says on the tin.


Saturday June 30th
France vs Argentina (3PM)
Uruguay vs Portugal (7PM)

Sunday July 1st

Croatia vs Denmark (7pm)

Monday July 2nd

So that you have them to hand in one place here’s a reminder of the substitution rules, transfer allotment, wildcard and boosters. AKA the rules…

    Morning all!
    This may or not be of interest or indeed possible for some of you but thought I’d mention it!

    As most of you will be aware its now no longer possible to log into your FPL account (you’ll get a message saying they are making essential updates). However if you are still logged into your account on say your mobile phone (as I am) then you still have full access to everything, not just your own data either but ALL data. So if you want to save anything you still can!

    Morning all. I hope all is well!

    Not been around much lately, which is probably down to not playing the World Cup game. Loving the tournament all the same though, and loving the upsets! England’s run-in is looking tasty now, but still a long way to go and we can’t be dismissing sides like Colombia as if we are streets ahead of them. Good to see that the site has been bustling over the ‘off-season’, and can’t wait to get tinkering already.
