I don't think that there's anything that in theory could stop you using your ringer for the 98/99 or 08/09 rounds. I'm not going to ban people from doing it. But I feel that you might waste an opportunity to get some more interesting players in ;D

Right but even without the ringer you have to fulfill those two requirements correct?

Drafters are encouraged to be tactical. Use mind games to convince other players who you're going to pick. Psyche them out. It's up to you. Choose players because you want them, choose players in the likelihood that others will to block them, choose players you don't think others will pick. It's what should make this fun :)

Looking forward to the first round

Nah, you don't have to have two players from those years particularly - but the draft is from those two years for the extra CB and CM 1) to add some flavour and 2) to broaden the pools of selection for CBs/CMs given that there are two of each.

So if you end up with 10 players from 2018/2019, one from 98/99 and then for the 08/09 round you decide to pick a CM from 2013/2014, that's your prerogative.

For me it would make more sense to use your ringer for your super sub or a different pick, there are plenty of top CBs in 98/99 and top CMs in 08/09 so I'm not sure why you'd forego these opportunities when by the time you get to super-sub a lot of the PLs best players might have been taken or blocked out.

2) Be kind, I've never done one before!

HURRAH!

You're in. The timezone shouldn't matter as you'll always have 24 hours to make any pick. And it should be straightforward, no prior experience necessary...

So it doesn't have to be those particular years it could be say 2002/2003 and 2004/2005 for the other for instance? Sorry for the questions mate, just want clarification so I don't screw up later.

Btw I wouldn't forego them, just wondering that's all  :)

My favourite drafting story - we did a hockey draft once. I was there largely to fill numbers but I knew enough about the sport back then to at least have a rough idea who to pick. The rules were everyone needed a Goaltender and a rookie, and defense goals were worth 2 pts.

The order is set, first on the board. Has the entire NHL at his feet - Prime Crosby, Ovechkin, Mike Green right there.

"Might as well get this out of the way - " and picked his rookie first overall hahaha

Cool, weíve got 10. Guess the games can begin now!

To be complete honest and upfront, I just wanted to let everyone know that Iíll be picking:

Alisson
Trent
Robertson
Van Dijk
Stam (1998-99)
Kante
Gerrard (2008-09)
Bernardo Silva
Salah
Hazard
Suarez (2013-14)

Son

So now you know, itís your own faults if you end up with a 2nd tier player from choosing these.

What does everyone think of my team? Should be a strong contender!

I think the rest of us should all take it in turns to pick one of these players so that he ends up with a League 2 team

Same for other rounds too? Say a player is picked from 18/19 - there then canít be another version of that player picked?

Nope.

The second CB has to be selected from 98/99.
The second CM has to be selected from 08/09.

UNLESS on either occasion you opt to use that pick for your ringer in which case they can be from any season.

Just an idea, but rather than a super sub can we have a round at the end to pick from all the duplicates. Then if you get another duplicate you get a super sub but if not you get the team you had before. What do people think?

I thought the super sub round was an inside joke? As in, the only super sub ever was Ole from Molde so weíd all duplicate him by default?
I believe the average spend will go up £5 ahead and thatís being very conservative. So thatís £185k. Then you have a new 25k who will spend £10 a head thatís £250k. This is without the massively enhanced hospitality areas.

Hahaha.

I really like the comparison that Ole being their manager is like Origi being our manager in 20 years!
