Welcome to the world of Sly Sports where all football before 1992 does not exist. This is a Premier League era draft where you can pick any player who graced the league between the 1992/93 season and the present day.

Rules:

- All form is based on Premier League appearances only. e.g. If you pick George Weah, you get the shit Weah at City not the AC Milan one.

- Performances before the 1992/93 season do not exist, so John Barnes' days as a flying winger are long gone

- You can only pick one player from each nation and therefore by the end of the draft you will have 11 different nations represented in your line-up. e.g. If you draft Fernando Torres for Spain, then Xabi Alonso and every other Spaniard is then off limits to you.

- 2 hours per pick dropping down to 1 hour if you're really slow

- Draft hours are 9am - 11pm GMT (but you can pick outside of these if it's your turn and you're about)

- PM the next drafter after you pick on pain of death.

You cannot call overseas Liverpool supporters glory hunters. We’ve won one trophy this decade. If they’re glory hunters, they’re really bad ones. They’re actually journey hunters. It’s the journey and the story. Something about Liverpool has grabbed them." - Neil Atkinson (May, 2019)
