The Europa list is shocking right enough and forces you to pick players from the British sides. No Dost from Wolfsburg was annoying. I guess it's easier to predict who will play in the CL ties but there is no real value in playing safe.

What do you guys think is the optimal Europa League to Champions league player ratio?

And are Messi and Ronaldo must haves?

I've got 6 of your players in my first team including 4 of your front 6.

I'll raise your Ribery with Hazard and your Muller with Sturridge

Observant as ever Dot.

He's got Sturridge...who won't play if Rogers has any sense.

I've not bothered entering any. If they can't be arsed to publish a decent player list then I can't be arsed to give them my money.

Sterling I meant to say.


Whats the matter Maldini not on the list so your throwing your toys out of the pram.

:(

You can be a thorn in the side sometimes, otherwise known as a prick.

2 Champions league games and 4 Europa games in the first phase, surely having 8/9 Europa players was the way to go?
Or have I read the rules wrong :oops:

I'm surprised more people didn't realise this. In phase 1 and 2, theres more games in the Europa League, I have 6 different full blocks and this as my front 6:

Shaqiri
Sterling
De Bruyne
Lukaku
Gervinho
Higuain

I was hoping everyone would get caught up in the Ronadlo Messi Neymar glamour of the Champions League, and going by the selection rate, most people have.

No, you're spot on.

It's finding 8/9 Europa League players that The S*n have heard of that's the problem. :lol:
