Great to have you back mate!

If you want a second wind on sm, dump your teams and start fresh. ( and no, i'm not saying this to benefit from a scavenger hunt! :D) It's liberating and the power those names on a page hold over you evaporates. Becomes a completely different game

When was the last time we rolled an honour? It's been three months, fucking hell, Season 17 has been waiting patiently forever to be inserted into the books, the chronicles, the sagas, and here it is! Out of sync, out of time, but very much in touch with old school warm thee heart.

Strap on your donkey jacket you big girls blouse, choke back the tears, soldiers don't cry, be a man not a boy, lard up keep it a secret, smash it's head in, it's time for the Season 17 roll of honour.

THE BIG NEWS..... Leeds topple Penarol and win their first ever League & Cup double! Dresden are back (again)! DeFacto lifts his first trophy in charge of Crvvcxxzdv Zvnmnvdrayr, and Alex gets his Moyes on.

Saint Etienne players are all still at Saint Etienne, Sparta players scattered at externals.

Gonna be rebuilding Saint Etienne's squad during the draft, and they're 40m in debt so might be a slight delay in bids being accepted depending on where their squad size is at. Shouldn't be more than a day or two. Players accepted P/E.

Still need to send messages on SM to sound the fog horn. Look to start draft tomorrow.

Was going to include the more desirable players from Valencia and Torino (Belotti, Parejo etc) but it gets too faffy. Couple of players on TBs there (Guedes, Verdi) will release them into the externals when their bans are up.

Forgotten owt, I probably have, gimme a shout!

Before making our big announcement, just wanted to check that everyone's OK with us trading our picks? Don't want to create a scandal here :D It's not really any different to deFacto making the first pick and then trading me the player. I've also given up MUCHO DINERO for that first pick, prepare to be amazed :D

What a pick Neymar is  8)

Gonna be interesting seeing the side-effects of this draft as well. People will have to sell players to fund their new signings, more players flooding the market!

Great as always, CC!

And great to see Dresden's name back on the roll of honours as well  8)

Likely to take a step back this season after trading Messi, Verratti & Alba away. Open to trading a couple of others as well. Meanwhile, we rebuild around SANTY!

Taking feedback into account, I've tried to come up with a way of determining the draft order. As this gameworld is all about going back in time, we're doing just that, to January 2017, and the 5th round draw for the Scottish Cup. I've assigned each team a ball number, so to find out where you are in the order, just watch along with Rod. The order they're picked is the order we'll go with.

I've no memory or clue about the competition, or fitba in general, and it's a slightly more objective way of doing it than just me rolling my dirty dice on my dirty desk.

And it's a bit daft.

So. Velez get first pick and are exempt. Teams are in alphabetical order.

1. Crvena Zvezda  (Aberdeen)
2. Deportivo  (Ayr Utd or Queens Park)
4. Dresden  (Dunfermline)
6. Dukla  (Greenock Morton)
8. Feyenoord  (Hibernian)
10. Independiente  (Partick Thistle)
12. Leeds  (Rangers)
14. Parma  (St Johnstone)
16. Penarol  (Stirling Albion or Clyde)

Obviously we're not drawing matches, just order.

I'll watch the draw and update when I'm done!

It had to be that I'd come up with an incredibly convoluted thing which results in me picking last.

Can I pick now? Sporting and Flamengo right?

Not yet! haven't heard from JW/RK7 yet. But we'll start in the next day or so as long as eveyones cool.
