Note: This is the report for the FFS Euro 2012 award only; there is a separate report for the FFS Friendly World Cup!

Brave FFS Euro 2012 managers have woken up today in a world where the rules to the Order of Extreme Valour are not as they once were. A player now selected by more than 3 people is no longer considered a differential pick. And on that bombshell, lets us review yesterday’s act of valour.

To highlight the turmoil caused by our new rule change, the numerous owners of Gebre Selassie and Pilar will find themselves out of the running, barring a captain’s armband being worn by one of those players. Former FFS favourite, Jakub “Kuba” Blaszczykowski, was only selected by 2 courageous managers, “FFS King” Mark and “Lord of the Teamsheets” Childish Gambino. Kuba’s 8 point haul proved to be the only genuinely succesful punt of the evening. The Light Knight (that’s right, I referred to myself in the third person) was left rueing his misfortune by Salpingidis’ yellow card and numerous offsides, while Roscola and SuperDunny managed to earn 3 points from their plucky selections of Boesnich and Katsouranis respectively.

Looking forward to tonight’s possible contenders, we see that following last week’s unexpected success, the Danes have become the brave manager’s team of choice. Starting off at the back, we see the noble selectors, Ginkapo and Jafalad, hoping for a repeat of last week’s impressive shut out by choosing Poulsen and Jacobsen respectively. Ginkapo has also gone for the the man who scored the only goal against the Dutch, Krohn-Dehli. We also see that Sporting ABG (much to the chagrin of his partner) continues with Christian Eriksen, while Doosra is joined by ENR in the valorous backing of mercurial forward, Dennis Rommedahl. Elsewhere in the group, we find that Childish Gambino and Chrissy Waddle have turned their backs on former FPL favourite, Ronaldo, in favour of his compatriot Nani.

Say tuned for our Day 2 report and Day 3 preview!
