FIFA World Cup 2010

Hello again,

There are only 32 more days till the start of the FIFA World Cup 2010. I hope you will come back to http://football.cyr.nl and join the contest that can earn you two years of bragging rights and a good feeling about yourself.

I hope that there will be more people than in 2008, so please invite your friends and family. It is completely free and there are no advertisements ;-).

Good luck!

and:

do we have to mix with the whole world,
or can we put up our own separate CG Fantasy WC league on FIFA.com?

In which case, who'll take on the task?

There is a prediction thing for the world cup on the FIFA one as well.

I'll put a FIFA private league up as soon as they allow us to create teams etc. (I'm assuming that's allowed)

The World Cup will also see the launch a new fantasy football game showcasing the Capello Index. The ‘Capello XI’ represents a new era for fantasy football. Not only will the players be measured by the most comprehensive scoring system of any fantasy game, the Capello XI is the most interactive game yet as fans will be able to follow the performance of their players in real time. The format of the game is also unique; participants can select a different set of players each match day, picking their preferred XI without limitation except for the number of players selected from each team

LOL , smothered in the cradle!

the above BBC article, originally reporting that FA was examining Capello's rating site, got updated live and now reads

Plans for England boss Fabio Capello to be involved in a player ratings website for the World Cup have been postponed.

The 'Capello Index' would have provided performance data on all players within two hours of games ending in the tournament in South Africa.

But the project, announced on Monday, was criticised by the media.

After a meeting with the Football Association, a spokesman for the Italian said he has postponed the website until after the World Cup.

"Fabio Capello's involvement has been purely as a technical expert to establish statistical criteria for the Index," a spokesmen for Capello outlined.

"He has not been directly involved in the on-line gaming element of the site.

"However, he wants to ensure that all appropriate protocols are in place before the project proceeds and has therefore decided today to postpone it."

Fabio Capello makes surprise England World Cup choices (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/world_cup_2010/8673706.stm)

big news in defence surrounds the return of versatile Liverpool defender Carragher, ...
"The FA got in touch a few weeks ago and asked if I would have a rethink, due to injury problems, I said I would make myself available.

"The World Cup and Champions League are the highest levels of football.
we have no Champions League football (at Liverpool) next season and I am keen to work under Fabio Capello."

The provisional Argentina line-up is (unsurprisingly) very interesting too.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/world_cup_2010/8676659.stm

Argentina squad: Goalkeepers: Sergio Romero (AZ Alkmaar), Mariano Andujar (Catania), Diego Pozo (Colon)
Defenders: Nicolas Burdisso (Inter Milan), Martin Demichelis (Bayern Munich), Walter Samuel (Inter Milan), Gabriel Heinze (Olympique Marseille), Nicolas Otamendi (Velez Sarsfield), Fabricio Coloccini (Newcastle), Juan Manuel Insaurralde (Newell's Old Boys), Clemente Rodriguez (Estudiantes), Ariel Garce (Colon)
Midfielders: Javier Mascherano (Liverpool), Sebastian Blanco (Lanus), Juan Sebastian Veron (Estudiantes), Jesus Datolo (Olympiacos), Jose Sosa (Estudiantes), Maximiliano Rodriguez (Liverpool), Mario Bolatti (Fiorentina), Juan Mercier (Argentinos Juniors), Angel Di Maria (Benfica), Jonas Gutierrez (Newcastle), Javier Pastore (Palermo)
Forwards: Sergio Aguero (Atletico Madrid), Diego Milito (Inter Milan), Martin Palermo (Boca Juniors), Carlos Tevez (Manchester City), Gonzalo Higuain (Real Madrid), Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Ezequiel Lavezzi (Napoli).


I don't doubt the first XI on any given match day will still look very good, but it seems a few wild cards will make the team.

King_Ghidra
12-05-2010, 16:28:38
and for what it's worth, the brazil team, which looks very strong generally, has a couple of questionable areas:

Striker:

Forwards: Robinho (Santos), Luis Fabiano (Sevilla), Nilmar (Villarreal), Grafite (VfL Wolfsburg).

I like what i've seen of Nilmar, and i like Luis Fabiano too. I know Grafite did great things in the bundesliga last season, but this season he has been flat, and Robinho is a known-unknown quantity.

I think luis fabiano is the best of them, but even he is not what you'd call world class. I know Dunga's brazil are a more disciplined and pedestrian outfit than previous brazils, relying less on a raw talent. But it certainly will be interesting to see if they have firepower problems when they play the decent teams.

In midfield, apart from kaka there's no-one to get very excited about either, with melo coming off a dire season for juventus, and others who are unproven at the highest level or like baptista who have been extremely inconsistent.

The only team that seems comprehensively strong to me are Spain, with their only doubts being injury worries. They have the most terrifying squad depth too though.

I can't help but think it will go wrong for spain, and that they revert to their history of glorious underachievers, albeit now failing at semi final stage rather than quarter final

European teams have a crappy record outside of Europe, I don't see history changing this time either

I'll probably (very unadventurously) bet on Brazil
It should be argentina's (the sheer talent at their disposal is awsome) but the angry mad coked pygmie will fuck it up for them

Q. Who do the bloggers think will be the real surprise package this time around? Both overachieving and underperforming.
Ben, Thailand

A. As the World Cup is in Africa, I quite fancy an African team to come through the pack so I will say the Ivory Coast under Sven "Quarter-Finals" Eriksson. In Didier Drogba they have one of the faces of the tournament and someone who will be on a personal mission to make a mark on the World Cup. And we all know what he can be like when he is in that mood.

As for under-achievers, I will go for Portugal, who have struggled under Carlos Quieroz, despite having the world-class talent of Cristiano Ronaldo at their disposal. France have a decent squad but a poor coach in Raymond Domenech, so I can also see them failing to make the expected impact.

Wow the scorign is interesting, seems you get a point for every tackle. Points for passes into the box etc.

Walrus Feeder
04-06-2010, 17:55:11
yeah, don't see how how you can predict what players will get most points for those. I found in Football Manager defenders with good anticipation are often more effective than high tackling, I think i'll base my selections on goals, assists and clean sheets and anything else is a bonus.

Back!
04-06-2010, 18:23:04
Having browsed the rules, Hands-on substitutions sounds even more interesting to me.

This means you should start with all your players who play earlier in the round, even if they are your worst ones.
Should one overperfform, you keep it, otherwise you scrap it in favor of one of your tops yet to play.

Cons: in case of "accidents" (early injuries or unexpected DNS) you won't be covered by automatic subs.

I wonder:
Defenders clean sheets have a relevant weight
unless you have scoring Midfielders (or assist-machines), they'll be bound to get less defensive points than Defenders, and less goalscoring points than strikers.
I figure thus a 4-3-3 could be preferable over a 3-4-3
That's to say, you probably won't usually field more than 3 Midfileders, and eventullay need 5 with substitutions
So, should you go for 3*1m midf., 2*1m def. and one 1m gk from NZL, PRK & HON?
I mean, instead of picking a 3-7-8-5 squad, you purposefully forsake the above 6 positions and go for a real 2-5-5-5 viable roster?

Leet's see top prices:
gk 8m (pick 1)
df 8m (mostly all from the same teams... pick 4 for a total of 28m)
mf 10m (Kakà only... picking 3 you spend 29m at most)
fw 10m (pick 3 for 30m: say Messi-Rooney-Ronaldo? :) )

8+28+29+30 = 95m
+ 6m for the 6 "non-playing" ones from NZL-PRK-HON
you spent 101m so far

you still have 39 m for your "usable" bench
1 gk
1 df
2 mf
2 fw

you never have enough good strikers, so you take the 2 best left too, spending 19m more...

5m average for the other 4 bench positions
unless you intend to aggressively gamble with subs, you won't need a 5m 2nd gk either, so maybe even 5.5/6m for the other 3


Hhmmmm... yaeh, probably this would be the wisest set
"short" squad, and top mf are more expensive than def, so you shouldn't waste you money on a "wide" midfield...

Hey, what am I doing, it's late, and i'm not gonna play anyway!
:D

Walrus Feeder
04-06-2010, 22:51:25
Thanks for that insight. I'll probably now use those theories and you'll be cursing if i win, ha ha. No, as with the other guys who play this and particularly the Premier League version, we all seem to have our own strategies and game plans which makes it interesting.

The fact you can make unlimited changes before the knockout stage gets underway means you can concerntrate on what players will get most points in group games rather than pick a player for the tournament that might come into form later on in competition. Makes it interesting to picking players too and researching Qualifying history etc to find who are the lower profile countries star players.

You also get + points for passes into the box, tackles etc.

Fistandantilus
11-06-2010, 16:19:46
Yeah but so far there are NO players with a positive attacking bonus...

Funko
11-06-2010, 16:20:57
I think that's more a criticism of those players than it is of the system. Can't imagine Iniesta giving the ball away 15 times.

Fistandantilus
11-06-2010, 16:34:43
I dunno. I expect attacking midfielders to lose the ball quite a lot, either by tackles or bad passes. Trying to dribble your man away or attempting a pass in the box are risky things.

As it is a defensive midfielder who just wins the ball often and passes it safely 3 meters away looks to be a safer bet unless the attacking midfielder scores, imho.

I mean Vela is a forward and has an attacking bonus of -1 and a defensive bonus of +1..

I guess we will get a better picture as more matches are played tho :)

Back!
14-06-2010, 08:29:27
well, what if you get a mid-top yield from your captain, but not top-top

Will you give his Captaincy away?
Say e.g. you had Messi, who got 9pts thanks to ABonus (better than scoring a goal!)
Will you replace him with Ronaldo or Robinho? Or will you keep the 9 points, considering too high the risk they might only get 8, and maybe a card, over the chance they score two and/or they gather assists or box-passes?

14-06-2010, 08:35:40

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/world_cup_2010/matches/match_11/default.stm

13 mins Commentary
Paraguay beat Argentina and Brazil in South American qualifying for the World Cup, but they've shown us absolutely nothing so far in Cape Town.

18 mins Commentary
This game, and our evening, is in Italy's hands. Paraguay would snatch your hand off if you offered them a draw right now, so it's up to the holders to make a proper match of it. In the Azzurri we trust.

35 mins Commentary
It'd be entirely fair to suggest that this game in Cape Town has become bogged down into an all-too-familar midfield stalemate, with both teams really struggling for creativity. I, however, am loving it, because it's the World Cup.

39 mins GOAL Italy 0-1 Paraguay
Bang - that's how to head a football. Paraguay have a free-kick 45 yards out on the right and Aureliano Torres curls it dangerously goalwards for Antolin Alacaraz to get up imperiously above Fabio Cannavaro and Daniele de Rossi and thump a header into the corner of the net. That woke you up, didn't it?
41 mins Commentary
That really is a magnificent header. Are we about to see a major, major upset at the 2010 World Cup finals?
Contributor BBC Sport's Chris Bevan at Cape Town Stadium "I knew this game needed a goal but I don't think many people here expected it to go to Paraguay - their celebrations showed how it was a bit of a surprise to them too. Big question marks over how Fabio Cannavaro and Daniele De Rossi tried to deal with that free-kick and, if the score stays the same, there will be no escape from Alcaraz in the Italian papers for Marcello Lippi tomorrow morning."

BBC Sport's Chris Bevan at Cape Town Stadium "Italy troop off at the break with 45 minutes to stop the defence of their World Cup from getting off to the worst possible start. Marcello Lippi’s side probably don’t deserve to be behind but they haven’t done much to trouble the South Americans either. As feared, the Azzurri look short of creativity and they are at real risk of being on the wrong end of the first big shock of the tournament. They are known to be slow starters, but there will still be a few metaphorical tomatoes thrown at them in tomorrow’s papers if they don’t rescue this match in the second half."

BBC Sport's Alan Shearer "We didn't expect the goal to come from Paraguay at all, but that's the best thing that could have happened to the game. And what a fantastic header, one I would have been proud of myself. Let's hope it opens the game up."

63 mins GOAL Italy 1-1 Paraguay
Hello, another goalkeeping howler? Italy get back on level terms, but Justo Villar will have to take the blame for that one. Simone Pepe whips in a corner from the left and Villar completely misses an attempted one-handed punch away, allowing Daniele De Rossi to bundle in from close range. Game on.

BBC Sport's Chris Bevan at Cape Town Stadium "That goal has put an extra spring in the step of the Italian players - and brought their fans back to life - but they still have to be careful here. Paraguay have had a couple of openings themselves since the break and, other than at set-pieces, the Azzurri have not really managed to open them up. Still much room for improvement from Marcello Lippi's men."

83 mins Commentary
This is brilliant - it's just classic Italy at a big tournament. How can you not be enjoying this? They have the momentum, but they are still struggling to create chances

BBC Sport's Alan Hansen "I thought a draw was a fair result. I'm still wondering where the creativity will come from for Italy and they got their goal because of a mistake, but 1-1 is fair."
Contributor BBC Sport's Chris Bevan at Cape Town Stadium "In the end, Daniele De Rossi spared Italy's blushes and they definitely deserved a point despite an impressive performance by Paraguay - but the Italians sorely missed Andrea Pirlo's creative nous and that defence looks very creaky indeed. I'm sure Marcello Lippi's biggest concern will be over the fitness of Gianluigi Buffon, however, because it seems unlikely that this team will progress very far in this World Cup without him in goal."
BBC Radio 5 live's David Pleat "Overall the Italians were the better side but I was quite disappointed with their strikers. There was no real expression of skill, but perhaps we're expecting a little bit too much, too early. Quite often in the opening games, your central midfielders are less inclined to push forward, the full-backs are more content to sit back and that's what we've been seeing at the World Cup so far."


If I'm not overlooking any eventual early foray, Paraguay had not touched a single ball inside the italian 40 metres for the first 15 minutes...
first 40 minutes: Italy posssession 32, PAR 8.
Of which in the opponents' half 24min for ITA, barely 2min for PAR (off the top "perception", no actual data :))
There was no foul on the free-kick causing Paraguay goal.
Yet the goal was totally fruit of skill and precision, Alcaraz jumped right behind Cannavaro and a foot ahead of De Rossi, wrong-footing an immobile (and already back-aching?) Buffon.

Once the data for all the matches in the round has been determined as final, automatic substitutions will be made providing no substitutions or captain changes have been made.

If any of your players play no part in the round, the computer will try to substitute the inactive player with the highest priority replacement from the same position who did play. If your captain does not play then the bonus will be lost, another player will not take over the captaincy in their place.

anyway autosubs only provide to avoid you get a 0 from inactive players
it doesn't substitute a player performing bad and only getting say 2pts like Buffon, or 1 like Drogba

Let's reassess Dream team anew:

GKP URU 11 MUSLERA (4.5)

DEF ARG 13 HEINZE (7)
DEF BRA 13 MAICON (8)
DEF GER 13 LAHM (8)
DEF KOR 12 JUNGSOO (3.5)

MID PRK 9 J.YU NAM (1)

FWD GER 15 PODOLSKI (8)
FWD GER 13 MÜLLER (7.5)
FWD BRA 13 ROBINHO (9.5)

it has 3 players from Germany and 3 from Brazil
(btw without 89' N.Korean goal, Maicon would have got +4 CS bonus, toppinng the score table with 17)

possible replacements

DEF PAR 11 ALCARAZ (4)
DEF KOR 10 YOUNGPYO (4)
DEF GHA 10 PANTSIL (4.5)
DEF FRA 10 SAGNA (6.5)
DEF GER 10 MERTESACKER (7)

MID SVN 9 KIRM (4)

MID ITA 9 DE ROSSI (7.5)
MID ARG 9 MASCHERANO (8)

FWD ARG 9 TEVEZ (8.5)
FWD ARG 9 MESSI (10)

dropping a forward, you drop down 4 points
plus, you can only use one as both subs come from Arg and you have to keep Heinze

dropping Elano, you drop down 3 points

dropping ONE in Maicon or Lahm, you drop down 2 points
dropping the second, you lose other 3 points

solution:
1. you drop LAHM: -2
2. you drop MAICON: -3 and -4m (dropping Elano you'd have the same points but spare less money)

LEGAL Dream Team
(with intial price, ignoring ongoing rises)

as you see above, he's the MOST SELECTED player in the Dream Team too!!!

he's one of the most popular lowest-cost "squad filler", 11% of the teams must be in your same situation!
:lol:

Lahm at 35% and Maicon at 25% are very popular indeed, but they had to be cut to make the dream team legal and sticking to the game rules

Late goals = Clean Sheet evaporating:
(gk -6, def -4, mf -1)

79' R.Marquez MEX v RSA (Mokoena 4.4%. mf Pienaar 14.7%)
79' Koren SVN v ALG (Belhadj 6.0%)
84' Gyan GHA v SRB (VIDIC 28.8%, Ivanovic 11.1%, gk Stoikovic 6.0%, mf Stankovic 8.9% mf Krasic 7.5%)
89' J.Yun Nam PRK v BRA (MAICON 24.2%, Lucio 10.7%, gk JULIO CESAR 22.5%)
93' Reid NZL v SVK (Skrtel 5.1%, mf Hamsik 11.4%)

especially the last 2 were shockers, not only because of the late time, but becaus no one was expecting New Zealand and North Korea to score at all!

I figure the dismay of those who had on field one or more of the players above!
:D

EDIT:
found out that if any of the above got subbed before conceding the late goal, he'd have retained the CS bonus anyway
you'll have to check, don't think it applies anyway

CORRECTION:
I realise that if you get out after playibg >60' while your team still have a clean sheet, you get the bonus even if your teammates concede a gola while you rest on the bench

So, 3 Brazil midfielders got subbed after playing 73', 78' and 84', before PRK goal at 89', and they keep the +1 CS bonus

A greater regret for those who had Maicon, now having it with Dunga as he didn't take him out!

Honduras have got 10 minutes to find an equaliser. They've got to have a shot on goal first, mind. Alexis Sanchez is having plenty of those for Chile but he just cannot find the target, well not without using his hand first... he drags his latest effort from distance well wide.


anyone expecting points from Sanchez?

A very unpredictable Fantasyy World Cup so far. Very few top name strikers scoring in the first round of matches and as for predicting clean sheets this has sprung many surprises:

Clean sheets for:
Uruguay, France, South Korea, Argentina, Slovenia, Ghana, Germany, Holland, Japan, Ivory Coast, Portugal, Chile, Switzerland

No clean sheets for:

1st round goals (16 matches)

2002 46 /16 = 2.87
2006 39 /16 = 2.44
2010 25 /16 = 1.56

1986 31 /12 = 2.58

I checked the best legal 11 you could have picked, and added the best captain score too

this is to eventually restore some self-esteem to those who did a good job picking thier 23 on the market, despite having then earned not many points
(...and to diss their ability as *coaches* to put the best 11 on the field :D)

I also think S.Africa red card was too harsh
A foul in the box is a penalty regardless

but for a red card you need a "clear goal chance" so the context and evolution of the action becomes relevant

the ball was already 3 metres distant and bouncing away from goal, the Uru player had no chance whatsoever to reach it again when the keeper tripped him (almost accidentally)

OK for a yellow, but no blatant goal chance denied by the foul, no red card

IMHO
whatever

In the bank 140.0

the players were in current score order, but then I added POR v PRK halftime points and I screwed the order

7 teams didn't touch substitutions, thus automatic replacements will kick in for their players and their score might improve further

Yeah, do Portugal ever scored so many goals before?
