    2nd or 3rd sounds good to me, even if it runs a bit longer, the weekend should speed up the draft a lot. Worst case scenario we have a finish on the following monday for the final few picks which is still roughly 4 or 5 days before season kicks off.
    The 30th just seemed too early and id imagine theres still a few transfers to take place between now and then, the less players needing to be considered post draft the better.

    August 3 seems like a good compromise - anyone disagree with August 3?

    I added BigSoccer usernames to the first post - if you click on those you can send a message on here to the user.

    During the draft the best way to keep moving is to message the person on this site that you have made their pick and they are "up" next

    If you have your settings set correctly you should get an alert on your email that you have a bigsoccer message waiting for you

    I have a google spreadsheet set up by Journeyman that I will email the link to after Hal sets the draft order - the spreadsheet reflects the draft order and places to drop your player names into.

    The draft itself will take place on this site - we will create a separate thread to do that and only draft posts should go in there to avoid clutter.

    We can use this thread for general banter during the draft or to alert everyone you will be offline for an extended period of time

    If you have questions about the draft let us know - we have a couple of founding members in this division so we should be able to help

    it's a serpentine draft 1-8, 8-1 for 15 rounds. No player can choose a player that has already been picked and you still need to adhere to the $100M limit on the official FPL site.

    Players must be in the site database - so not just a confirmed transferred player but FPL has to have added him and assigned a price value.

    Hal will user a randomizer tool online to generate the draft order 1-8.

    I was waiting to see if Hal could just edit the old league or not. Or just kick out last year’s promoted team that is showing up.

    just ask him to leave the league. he probably didn't realise he auto joined it. Worst case scenario just have 9 in the comp and ignore his results, it isn't head to head so his inclusion in the league does not affect our league at all really.

    Sorry, in there now. Does anyone know if it's possible to have 2 different teams assigned to the same account? Right now I made a separate account from my other FPL entry. Also working on changing my name

    2 clarifying questions on the rules:

    1) I assume we're responsible for keeping the total budget of the team below the 100 that the official game requires. Do people just track this on their own as they draft?

    2) Are trades allowed during the season, or does the game just follow the same rules as the official game post-draft?

    If you use the spreadsheet it should keep track of your budget.
    You probably should slowly build your actual classic team to represent your drafted team as well.

    Youre allowed to transfer normally through the season but you need to announce it on the forum first before someone else does.
    I suppose you could offer a trade with someone with a like for like position, but i am not sure if there is a rule against that

    Track yourself as you draft - once the draft is over you enter your team in the official site and it has to fit into the 100M limit

    For trades and transfers we will have a new thread on here where they have to be posted to be official - there is a 24 hour window after the last pick is made in the 15th round- in that window no transfers are made. Then it’s open season on any player not previously picked

    This becomes important if a player not in the database is added to the game during the draft - the player list is frozen once the first pick is made so after the 24 hour window it’s first come first served

    The date stamp on posts made here determine who picked up a player first

    We also have a google sheet that I will share that tracks everything thru the season

    The transfer thread that will be created on this site tracks it thru the season and is the final determination of who got a player first and is required for any transfer to be legal

    Trades with other players have happened before - both players need to post on here they agree and detail the trade
