Do we still have a squad cap in place? This guy has come in, taken over Bayern & signed 60 players for them, then jumped ship to Atletico and is doing the same thing there  :o

AEK's new-look front three!



Dembele & Icardi, not a bad haul that ;D Thanks to all of yiz who didn't rival my bids, don't quite have the financial clout to compete in bidding wars just yet. Congrats to everyone else who landed players as well, top signings all round.

In the mood for trading now. Brandt, Ruben Neves, Lautaro Martinez, Rodrygo & more all up for grabs. Gonna throw some bids out there, drop me a message if you're interested in any of my players.

Coming together at Spurs. Fabinho and Tolisso in central midfield with Fekir in front.

Midfield's the main priority at the moment but I'm looking to bring in more quality all over really.

Not to mention Kepa, Manolas, Son & Lacazette. Good thing you've got going there.

Crazy deal, it really is. 4 for 4  ;D Agreed without any fuss either, always a pleasure when the negotiations go smoothly.

Big day for AEK with Mbappe on the way in, very exciting! I've missed having him on one of my teams after trading him in the other two worlds. Very happy to have got my hands on a top young keeper as well. We already had two excellent keepers at AEK, but I wasn't 100% happy with either of them for different reasons. Buffon because I don't know how much longer he'll be playing, and Navas because of his situation at Madrid. With Donnarumma joining, we can stick with Buffon for now while knowing that we have a ready-made replacement once we finally decides to hang up his gloves. If anyone wants Navas they can have him for cash, just let me know quickly as I've already accepted a bid from an external.

Verratti leaves a massive void in our midfield, but you can't push through a deal like this one without taking a hit somewhere. Kessie comes in to take his place in the squad, but we could still do with another higher rated CM if anyone else wants to sort out a trade.

I thought it was 50? Just checked the last gameworld announcement you sent around Liam, where you also said it was 50. Sent on 15th October in case you want to check it as well.

Looking back through this thread, we were discussing dropping it to 45 a year ago but we never went through with it. I wouldn't mind dropping it, I was in favour of doing it at the time. But it's defo 50 at the moment. Never broken a squad cap across any of the gameworlds  :D

Did we ever actually drop it to 45 though? We definitely discussed it last January. From the posts in here it looks like most of us agreed it would be a good idea, but we never actually agreed how & when to do it. Then in October you sent around a gameworld announcement reminding people that the cap is 50.

Happy to trim my squad if people want to go with 45. Think it's unfair if I have to remove my bid for Hoever though.
