Playing redspottedhanky Fantasy Football Cup? Time to make your transfers

The group stage of the World Cup ended last night.  The first batch of knock-out quarter final games will begin on Saturday.

If you are playing the redspottedhanky Fantasy Football game, it is time to start making some transfers.  You have 15 transfers which are available now and which can be used between now and Wednesday.

The clever thing to do is to make a few transfers before each match in order to maximise the number of players from participating teams.

If you want an easy life, though, the simple thing to do is make one quick purge on your team.

Fantasy Football

The following countries remain, so any players you bring in need to be from these 16.  You should transfer out any players from the other 16 eliminated countries:

  • Algeria
  • Argentina
  • Belgium
  • Brazil
  • Chile
  • Colombia
  • Costa Rica
  • France
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Mexico
  • Netherlands
  • Nigeria
  • Switzerland
  • Uruguay
  • USA

Don’t forget to delete Suarez as well!!

As at 10pm last night, the current leader of the Head for Points mini-league was The Wednesday – well done!  You are beating 337 other teams in our league!  Still a long way to go though ….

    How to you easily work out who to kill off? – it only seems to give player names not countries on the main screen? Do any gaps then get automatically filled in from players that are still in?

    (clueless about football and fantasy leagues!)

      I did it the convoluted way, by selecting all players by position (from the main menu, under Stats, select Player Search and pick a position to see the full list of all players). C&P into a spreadsheet, sort by country and remove the dead teams. Then I sorted them by points, by price to get value for money and took my pick from those that were left. But now I’ve done it, I can just re-sort and eliminate as each team goes out.

      I realised that last night – bit of a pain!

    • TimS says:

      If you hover the cursor over the shirt (not the player’s name) it tells you their country

    I just did it by lucky dip & I’m ahead of you, Fenny 😉

  • Fenny says:

    Yay! Well into the top 150 now. A couple of goals from van Persie and Robben tonight will do nicely.

  • squills says:

    Just a reminder to make any transfers today as the current transfers allocation expires at 4am Weds.

  • squills says:

    Thanks Hunny 😉

    Good chance to make a few switches

    So, now that it’s all over – how did everyone do?
    what was it? 4p for every point up to max of £15 (or 375 points)?

    Erm, I think I go tjust over 300 points – so just over £12; I didn’t really read the rules at the beginning – so picked a team which had a load of players who didn’t play for the first 4 or 5 days!!
    Anyway – managed to pick up towards the end.
    Can’t believe so many people in our mini league!!

    Thanks for the heads up Raffles!

      I will try to top up how much we made when I get back! Should beat the combined £1100 from Fantasy Wimbledon 2013.

    • TimS says:

      3 RSH points (ie 3p) per Fantasy Football point, capped at a max of £15 RSH credit.

      I ended up a few pence shy of a tenner.
