Concerns are off. Unless you're on about the 'morale' bar but I thought that was just a whimsical aside.
Sound. Was on about concerns

Actually with the seasons being so short we could always switch them on and have a 'concerns season' and see what happens. A little bit bit of catharsis for unused players. Then switch it back off again just as they begin to smell freedom.

I think it would be best if they were off, as it's less for me to consider keeping players happy.

But whatever you think is best mate.  I'm a newb.

He's been online and not bothered so you might be right. Are you going straight after Betty?

I might be awhile. Just got in from one of those never ending draining family meal situations and I barely feel alive right now. Also have no idea who's been picked today yet.

I've updated the opening post in the selection thread regulary. You must have an idea of players you'd like?! ;D

Don't think so. Didn't get a message and the round is supposed to work from the bottom towards the top right now. I'll wait to the morning.

Leno.
Are you serious about playing mate? You're gonna start losing out on picks, and you have to add up your transfer kitty aswell. Plus waiting round an hour everytime you're up is a pain in the arse ::)

Gone like the wind  ;D Let him have Leno, and he can make up the rest of his lost picks when he reappears. No point waiting an hour every time though.
