More ideas for smaller drafts lads -- these are really fun.

Let's do a Betty draft.   You can only pick players that you have never drafted before.
THIS IS ANFIELD SIGN:
Itís there to remind our lads who theyíre playing for and to remind the opposition who theyíre playing against! - Bill Shankly

We have everything we need - Jurgen Klopp

You need to get more wives mate, it fixes everything. Apart from then you have loads of wives, which is a nightmare.  -  Djozer

I've got a Survivor Series draft win mate, the holy grail. And a football one, so I'm ambidextrous.

I don't think I have won a football draft, but a Survivor Series win with Hulk Hogan on my team surely puts me top of the leaderboard.
We already have shit in the country, and the game of Liverpool fills life with joy. Thanks

How about a winner's winners draft ---

Only those with 5 or more wins is eligible - but everyone in the community votes.

In honor of ESL - we call the Top 6 draft -- top 6 draft winners plus 2-4 hangers on compete for the Biggest Winner Award

As someone aiming for being the winningest- biggest loser, I'll run it :)

Betty will have a list I think maybe we could use that....  want to see the best of the best of pick some teams now after a year long bender of drafts :)

Maybe there are not as many as 6 or 8?  Maybe Sarge, you are right at the top?

Right next draft 4 of Clubs v2. We'll go with:

Real Madrid
Juventus
Ajax
Borussia Dortmund

Same rules apply from the previous version. All players will be judged on their times and what they won at these said clubs.  If a player you chose played for more than one of these clubs then we judge them on the club you chose him for. 

All clubs must be represented in your selected XI.

I just thought of a "Multi Million Pound fuck yourself draft"

No players that have been signed anytime in their career for more than £10 mill - Post 00's players only.

Just to see what teams people come up with

I think it's a lot easier than it seems because of old fuckers moving for low fees at the end of their career. For example you can get pretty much any Brazilian of the 90s/00s that way. Maybe you could ban free transfers? That would help get closer to the draft I think you're aiming for.

Yeah, it's a good idea and banning free transfers and one club players (Messi, Maldini, Hibbert) would ensure those types of players won't get picked.

Alternatively you could make it so the player you draft is the one who the fee was paid for. So if you want to sign Ronaldinho for example (moved to Flamengo for 3m in 2011) then you get the out of shape washed up version and not the prime Barca one. Not sure people would vote accordingly, but it would make for a pretty funny draft.

Great draft idea. Perhaps post 00s players, never moved for over £10m at any stage of their career - so discounts even those who had decent sized moves late 90s but then lesser fees later in their career?

Or Betty's idea works, you get the version of the player they were at the club they moved to.

It's time to get more creative then. The Queen of Clubs draft. You can only draft from teams with Queen in their name -

Queens Park Rangers
Queen of the South
