    If anyone is curious about what the draft mode is like, and what the process of doing the first draft will be like, I'm quite happy to setup another draft league and set a time & date thats not far away at all (eg sometime this weekend) so we can have a go. And then I will just delete that league as its just a test run to prepare us for the real thing.

    Just worked out how to get Sanchez in my team, now it looks like PSG are going to nab him :facepalm:

    So far I've been planning on the basis that he and Costa are more likely than not toast as far as fantasy football is concerned this coming season.

    I do have back-up plans should he sod off to France, and would probably make for a more balanced team, was just the timing.

    Also, I'd managed to get Lukaku, Kane, Alli and Sanchez all into the same team! My defence is... workmanlike :oops: :D

    I think I'll give Everton players a miss until they get this somewhat ropey fixture list out of the way.

    So there are only two of us in the draft league so far. I think it can still be a fun experiment if we manage to get at least 4 people in total.

    I remain completely flexible as to when we hold the first draft, but the clock is ticking and if anyone out there is up for it please join the league sooner rather than later, cheers :)

    Last call for the draft league. Due to lack of u75 interest Lord Camomile had to bring in a bunch of his football friends, but as of now there are still 3 places available.

    I also joined a public draft league that had its draft yesterday. The draft was great fun, better than I was expecting, and it didnt drag on too long. And this game wont take as much time/effort to play each week because there is no team captain to choose and there is a much smaller pool of remaining players to transfer in later.

    Thanks for finding enough people in the end for us to be able to try this draft league despite lack of interest from u75'ers.

    And so we have reached the moment where our draft is just under an hour away. Good luck!

    At least you arent the guy in our league who has Costa and Coleman, as well as several other players who are suspended or injured!

    It also offers the opportunity to say things I'd never say in the other fantasy game, in my case 'I've got Wayne Rooney!'

    Remember managers must submit their final selections by 6.45pm BST on Friday 11 August.

    and then at 6.46, half of my squad will get injured or transferred out of the english league...

    Why is Ozil starting?! I left him on my draft bench! I didn't want him coming on as a sub and getting a measly one point :mad:

    I already hate this game again.

    Tracksuit dusted off and chewing gum at hand. Lets do it.

    big eejit She looks like Alan Gilzean

    Some good scores in the Urban league.

    Bit worried I have no Liverpool for this week's game vs Palace, but want to roll over my FT.

    Everyone else happy? Sad? No Kane captainers please.

    starfish No dialogue. Just plot.

    Well happy so far. With one exception. I let heart rule head when i should have played Danilo instead of Knocky. Would have got 81 points :)

    I thought Bournemouth could've done better but WBA will be tough to beat at home again. I swapped out Lacazette for Firmino, then Firmino for Kane, costing me the H2H :mad:.

    I'm trying to join the league but all the codes I've found on here are either coming up as invalid or "closed to new entries" :(

    I was in last year but re-registered with a new email address for this season.
     
  28. poului

    poului a bit overrated

    I played four defenders this week, all of whom failed along with my goalie and the one defender I bench scores 15 points.

    Fuck this game up the wrong'un.

    Holy shit, I'm at 62k in the overall :eek:

    Got two players left to play, but most around me on the urbans league have 4/5, so I'm sure to fall...and fall big, after the next games. But still, enjoying this nosebleed position :thumbs::thumbs:
