A couple of things about the March score update.

Oddities in the Spain matches:
- 9 FS players started against Norway, 2 Spanish starters scored. The 2
scorers were the only 2 non-FS starters.
- The following 1st cycle players got points:
Player - Previous cap
Navas - 2014 March
Muniain - 2012 March
Canales - none!
Canales' points made Enzo leapfrog Jesus in the predicted final ranking.

The Fair Play award goes to Alberto, who told me that I had given to his
pick Miguel Borja a Cristian Borja's cap.

Believe me, Juergen, _someone_ was watching.

Did you pick him while he was still with Celtic, or after the move to
Southampton ?

I recall he already looked pretty darn good with Celtic, even in CL games.

It will be soon (soonish...) be possible to answer this kind of
questions directly from the FS site. Anyway, I picked him in November
2015, a couple of months after his move to Southamption. I was already
following him when he was at Celtic, though. Here is my file on VVD:
Virgil van Dijk, 1991
2014.09.06 "Other promising youngsters at the back include centre-backs
Joel Veltman and Virgil van Dijk" (Goal.com)
2015.11.04 "10.000.000 € market value" (transfermarkt.com)
2015.11.04 In the Netherlands preliminary squad for November 2015
friendlies. And he already has 2 caps...
2015.11.04 He is young (24), he is getting better and better, and he
already has 2 caps. Quite a safe pick (I hope!).

milivella Fantasy Scout Football Club destroyed Pogba's Manchester
United. Richarlison started the party with a wonderful overhead kick
goal, Walcott ended it.

(of course I'm just diverting attention from the news that Higuain
failed so much that Chelsea are giving him back to Juve...)

"20 - Since the start of last season, only Cristiano Ronaldo (24) has
been directly involved in more goals in the Champions League than
Liverpool's Roberto Firmino (20 - 12 goals, 8 assists). Provider. #LIVPOR"

Binder's 5th cycle picks are on fire. Havertz and Sancho may be the best
teen players in the world right now. However, Binder picked only four
players. Too few?

Also Binder's 2nd cycle pick Lucas Moura is not in a bad moment...
