    Welcome everyone to my fantasy football league for football manager. I couldn't remember the real name for this type of game so made one up. The rules are simple, each player picks a team and then I will put us all in a random generator to determine the order of play of which we pick our teams. This means people like Messi could be playing for Stoke and so on. To make it fair on the players who get picked 20th, the next round the picks will get reversed so the person who picked last goes first in round. The way I am going to have people pick is by PM or Email whichever is easier. To save me getting a millions people saying Messi in their PMs the way I want people to pick their squad is like so:

    Burnley:
    1.Messi

    Aston Villa
    1.Messi
    2.Ronaldo

    Chelsea
    1. Messi
    2. Ronaldo
    3. Neuer


    So in this case Burnley got drawn out 1st. They picked Messi as their first choice. Next up was Aston Villa who wanted to pick Messi but as Burnley already chose him they got their second choice. Same with Chelsea who got 3 picks as 2 teams went before them but as they had Neuer as their 2nd pick and nobody had chosen him then they get the player.

    At the end of each round of picking I will release the squads so you can see who has been picked and where you need to pick some players.

    Premier League Rules for registration
    Maximum Squad size of 25 players
    8 Players trained in England for 3 years before 21st Birthday

    I am going to say you need to have at least 5 English people in the squad
    At least 2 players over the age of 31
    At least 3 players under 21

    Failure to comply with these rules will mean that I have the right to take away one player from your squad and replace them with someone who fits into the rules.

    At the end of the picking once everyone has their squads I will then either SIM the game or if someone who has the in game editor wants to help me out we could turn this into a chairman game but we will see how it goes for now.

    Of course mate!

    I hope I have made the rules ok it will be easy enough to pick up as we go along.

  5. Yeah, they are fine. I can see you posted a request message on the Chairman Game thread.

    Yeah I know a lot of the people in the Chairman Game thread are trustworthy so would like them to come along and join this too

  7. Can I go Man Utd? Don't really understand the rules though so could you explain

    Yeah thats fine mate. Basically when I have 20 players I will release a list in how many picks people get so if you are 20th u have to send me a pm with 20 players on that list. If you are 2nd on the list you get two picks because the person who picks first may pick the player you want so you get another choice. It is easier to do it that way instead of you picking a player sending me a PM then for me to say no sorry hes already been picked.

    Done pal, welcome to the game

    That's your opinion, there's only one team I'll never ever be and that's Galatasaray even if it's a fun game as I hate them. I dislike Man Utd but my hate isn't as strong for them as it is for Galatasaray so I can just bare being Man Utd

  19. southampton please

  26. Do the team start with the actual team budget? Also, do we have any players in the team or do we start completely empty?

    No budget & no players. Just you pick the players you want so it will be your 'fantasy team' but with a few restrictions that I posted in the first post. It will all be clearer once we get the whole 20 players

  31. I'd like Newcastle please

  32. West Ham please.

  33. Stoke for me then

    First page has all the taken teams.

    Everyone else has been updated so welcome to the game, not many positions left and remember I will be taking the last spot

  36. Can I take tottenham

    Of Course mate

  38. I think it would be better to sim it as you can get through more seasons

  39. Quote Originally Posted by cheeko63 View Post

    I will sim the first season then open it up to see if people want to turn it into a chairman game or not.

    Not many places left guys, remember I am having the last team

  40. I'd be interested in a chairman game mainly cos I don't fully understand the rules

  41. I don't care. Chairman Game or Simulation.

  42. First season will definately be a simulation because you would have picked your own squads so should be no reason for anyone to buy players

    Hopefully we get the last few people so we can get things going.

  43. I think I kinda get an idea of the first thread now...

    So if I am number 2 and my first option was taken by number 1 I would get my second choice player?

    Yep that is correct, so if you are 20th then you send me 20 players as your first 19 might have been picked. After each round the order reverses so if you was 20th you would then pick first.

    And that keeps happening till a whole team is picked?

  46. Yep, so the point is some people might want to pick the best goalkeeper etc so everyone should have different players to fit certain formations etc. I will let everyone send me PMs with players at the same time. I will then release who got which player without showing who else they wrote down incase people forget people. Will update squads on the front page so people can see who has been picked!

  47. Can i take Hull city?

    Of Course

  49. 3 More players needed

  50. Can I take Palace? Thanks!
