    Once the draft begins let's move all discussions to here and retire the organizing thread. Appropriate decorum is requested. Keep the use of conjured spells and incantations to a minimum. Let's continue to keep things above the 1800 line.

    I will begin the draft at 8AM EDT Saturday. Perhaps Journey can capture and freeze the player list sometime after that.

    you mean like Chris Suttons Slippers smell like Haggis if it was far less refined and the sewage from New Mexico flows north off the Rockies...

    Repost from a few weeks ago;

    The spreadsheet is ready to go and I have everybody already listed as editors on it. I will tweak and double check the player list just before we lock it down;

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ggf1fR5dW_irI2o1KSPasGYN5dYob6OgoJn5K5C6PY8/edit#gid=0

    The spreadsheet setup is the same as last year unless further requests are made;

    Squads page - Used to record players within our team, please keep it accurate.

    Player List (Draft) page - This is only used for the draft period with locked players, I will hide it once the first GW is in motion. No players will be added post draft.

    Transfers (Post Draft) page - This is to be used once the draft 24 hour wait period has finished and open transfers are permitted. Transfers are posted on the BigSoccer transfer page and then posted here as a record. I usually keep about 10 game weeks and then hide anything older.

    All transfers must be completed on the FPL site at the same time as being posted above so that no advantage from price increases/decreases are obtained.

    Game on!

    Thought it was a good idea not to check the other leagues before I made my first pick. I may have just made a second round pick:)

    It's been a long time since I had an early pick. I had note down about blowing your wad of dough at the first gambling table.

    No worries from your end. No need to put a lock on the trophy cabinet on my account...

    I have someone requesting access to the spreadsheet. I believe I have all 8 of us already shared.

    If it is one of us please advise otherwise I will not accept?

    I've checked the validity of those transfers and can confirm that neither Kane nor Werner have played for 'The Hoops' so they are legit.

    Carry on.

    I had a bad feeling I'd end up with Kane, I feel better about life knowing I don't.

    yeah his injury form concerns me, but talked myself into the risk:cautious:

    with the short break perhaps he will avoid his early season mediocrity too, talked myself into that as well...:rolleyes:

    Bigger gambles than I like to take early, but though I love the turn, the return trip sooo looong
