Yeah, makes sense to bid on the players once we've picked them. Let's have that selection order  :D

You get two picks in quick succession though. For the first two rounds, being at the bottom is actually the better of the draw imo, especially in the this type of scenario. It's not like anyone's gonna be picking Messi or the likes at the top with the budget restricition

I'll happily take Messi if noone above me does! Easily worth it even if he takes a massive chunk out of the budget. 99 rated players win games by themselves, and you can always trade him on for 2 or 3 top players in the future if you want to. But yeah, I'm happy to be picking last in a small draft like this one. 2 top players guaranteed :D

Make the selection thread now, stop teasing us!!

Spunk a 3rd of your budget on one player? The rest of your team would be fairly cack but if you plan on shifting don the line....

Oh the mind games ;D Personally I'd rather secure Messi now and take the hit on a couple of cack players who I'd then work on upgrading. I'm sure everyone will have different strategies though, be interesting to see how it plays out.

Cheers LM! Big decisions in the Cheat household with this first pick...

Yeah. 20/21 is the minimum. Once we've drafted 11 players each, we can use the free for all to fill up squads.

I'm not sure we need to fill that 20 squad minimun to compete. I think once you go over that number, you cant transfer out below that.

We're only picking 11 players for now (doesn't necessarily have to be a first XI, just 11 players who play in whichever position). Then it's a free for all bidding war to fill up the rest of  our squads.

Cool. Will be interesting to see everyone's strategy, I'm still in two minds regards the best players vs overall squad depth. 300m won't go far when you need a minimum 20 players.

The more the merrier so long as people stick around after the draft IMO. A bit concerned that people are only jumping on board now they've seen the selection thread.

Bidding as you pick will keep it tidier, but no bother if not.

I'd say just go as the picks are made? Hurries things up and SM is less likely to take ages to process them if they're happening gradually...what you reckon LM?

Well then i wouldn't join the draft. If i were you i'd join sm, take on a team in a random league and get used to sm first. You'd be spunking money on players without having a clue what you're doing. Up to yourself though.
