Captain conflict

Now that we have reached the semi finals I find myself in "new territory" regarding player picks. In the Premier league even though we only get 11 starting players and no bench players there are always plenty of options, good & bad, to fill your roster without obvious conflict.

There are any number of strategies you can follow when picking players in the Premier league. Certainly one of my favorites is match ups, but unfortunately we have reached a point in the Euro's where I feel that is nearly impossible.

Let me explain.

I have picked Ronaldo as one of my players. I feel he is a good pick and actually leads the poll for Captain's choice this week. A choice I happen to agree with at this time. Since we have only four teams to choose from I have also decided to go heavy with Spain players but as we all know, we need a balance of players from the remaining teams just in case the unexpected happens.It would be a huge gamble to choose players from only two of the remaining teams because that could leave the door open to a Finals game with few players left to play on your team unless you take huge deductions.

So, if I do decide to Captain Ronaldo what does that say about my choices of Alba & Casillas?

My second choice as Captain would have been Alba but then that conflicts with the Ronaldo pick.

In order to avoid conflict I must basically choose between Torres, Fabregas or Busquets ( my remaining Spain players) as the only "logical" choices as Captain even though I feel Ronaldo "could" score well.

So, is anyone else struggling with Captain conflict?
