Playing redspottedhanky Fantasy Football Cup? Time to make your transfers

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

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.

Fantasy Football

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

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 ….

    The 15 transfers are already available.

  • Clive J says:

    I believe the transfer times are 4.01am not pm. Probably to accommodate a couple of 2am start times early in the tournament.

  • squills says:

    Looks like my hunch on Spain & Portugal was as good as most of my hunches 😉

    I shall purge lol

    My money’s on Holland to go all the way!

  • Frenske says:

    Probably it is to select players from teams you expect to progress to next round. Do we get transfers every round now??? Probably it is better not to purge whole team since you have players you want to keep and want to keep a number of transfers for the later rounds!

    • squills says:

      Not much point in keeping any eliminated players though, that meant 8 purges for me team #1 😉

    • TimS says:

      You get 10 more transfers on Wednesday but the current 15 can’t be rolled over so they need to be used by 4am on Weds or are lost.

      I did my first round of substitutions last night. But then realised that I might have done better to pick players from the first 8 games for now, then swap out the losers for players from the second 8 games. As it is, with 5 changes, I have players from 9 teams I expect to do well and have left out a couple from the last 2 round of 16 games, who I can bring in when I know the losers of the earlier matches.

  • squills says:

    Looking at the fixtures list, that means you can eliminate more losers by Weds:

    Saturday 28 June
    17:00BrazilBrazil V Chile Chile
    11:00ColombiaColombia V Uruguay Uruguay
    Sunday 29 June
    17:00NetherlandsNetherlands V Mexico Mexico
    21:00Costa RicaCosta Rica V Greece Greece

    17:00FranceFrance V Nigeria Nigeria
    21:00GermanyGermany V Algeria Algeria
    Tuesday 1 July
    17:00ArgentinaArgentina V Switzerland Switzerland

    I worked out last night that if I’d had my current team since the start, instead of wasting money on Fred and other layabouts, I’d have at least twice as many points now!

  • ts77 says:

    in 90th….all to play for.

    Teams moved around now.

  • John says:

    Hah, I have been so busy at work recently (3 hours of sleep per night for the past 10 days) that I haven’t even been able to follow the matches, and my auto-selected team has scored 0 points! Don’ need to work on Sunday so maybe I’ll be able to get back in the running…
