You must assign your Perks by PMing me and post in the thread to let Wincho know you have submitted them, as you need to make your choices before you can finalize any deals. Perks will only be revealed where necessary, so if you're planning on using underhand tactics like injuring or disrupting players it will only be me and you who know about it! Unless you want to shout about it if you pull off a great scheme but thats upto you. :)

Injury Prevention
A magic sponge can be used to return a player to full fitness - A magic sponge can be used anytime during the season. Invincible would mean one nominated player from your squad can never be injured - to mark a player as invincible you must do so before the transfer window closes. If you sell an invincible player they are no longer invincible.

  • 1 additional Magic Sponge - 2 Perk Points
  • 2 additional Magic Sponges - 4 Perk Points
  • Invincible! - 5 Perk Points

Filthy Tappers.

Plugging the Leak.

Buying and Selling players:
-In the attached spreadsheet you will find your budgets for transfers and wages, as well as a list of players minimum values and wages.
-A player cannot be sold for less than their asking price but can be sold for more.
-You must ensure you have the funds and wages in your account to pay for a new player or the deal will fall through.
-You can buy and sell as many players as you like providing your squad does not have more than 40, or less than 17 players in it.
-Players can only move ONCE per window, so be absolutely sure you've done the right thing when you make those purchases as there is no going back.
-If you cannot sell your players but need to shift them off your roster to free up some wages or space, you can pay their contract off by paying for their asking price with your own funds.
-When selling a player 10% of your sale funds go into the chairman's pockets, you know to cover printer ink and that.

Buying players owned by other FTL Managers
You can PM other managers to negotiate deals or do so openly in the thread.

When announcing a done deal, post in the thread, this will then need confirming by the other manager. Once done it will be added to the spreadsheet by myself/Wincho

Buying NON FTLs players
The Window for buying NON FTLs will open on each Tue/Wed/Thu Night at 8PM till and close at Midnight that same night.

The only NON FTLs available will be added to the spreadsheet on the day the window opens, and mainly consist of the worlds elite teams.

Managers can name someone they wish to bid on at any time during the 8pm to Midnight window.
To nominate a player you need to post the following info -
Player Name
The Club they are from
Price you are bidding (Must be at least their minimum value)

Other Managers may then bid if they want to but must bid more than the current price.
Minimum Bid Increases -
Less than 5.0M = 0.1
5M - 10M = 0.5
10M+ = 1M

Please quote the post of the Manager you are outbidding or your bid will not count

After 20 minutes of inactivity (no higher bids received) the player is deemed to have been bought by the highest bidder
The 20 minute clock re-starts however on each increased bid
IMPORTANT - the 20 minute clock freezes at midnight each night and does not countdown any more until 8pm the following night
This means that to win a player in this style of bidding, you must hold the winning bid for 20 minutes during the 8pm to midnight window (or a total of 20 minutes at the end of one night and start of the next)
If on the final night on Saturday a player goes over the Midnight window he will continue to be open until someone makes a winning bid lasting 20 minutes.

Will be divided up into home and away.

You play each person once, then play them again in the second half of the season.

Each half season of fixtures can be played in any order

Injuries identified by the plaster icon in match stats screen
Players injured in any game in the first half of the season are ruled out until the mid season transfer window
Players injured in the second half of the season will take no further part
Using a magic sponge will mean the player is immediately available for selection but sponges are one time use only so use them sparingly when really needed

Please ensure the injuries for both teams are reported in your match reports and once players are injured that they don't feature in that remaining half of the season.

You can use your sponges at any time but you must make it clear in the thread who you are using it on so the spreadsheet can be amended.

-DO MATCH REPORTS INCLUDING ALL REQUIRED INFO! (Score, injuries, for both teams. (You must state none if there are none.))
-DO NOT USE CUSTOM FORMATIONS. (Unless you opted for the perk allowing them)

Haha fair enough. We did finish same points like. Seems awfully convenient that you snuck up to 3* especially when considering Middlesbrough are a 3* team, haha. :hat:

Haha! Wincho did our ratings, I cant say I disagree with him and i dont think many people would in putting us at the same level! Youve got that winning pedigree!

I dont mind dropping to 2.5 though if you think thats more fair.

The wheeling and dealing starts next weekend

It's much more fluid in terms of when you play than the regular 1v1 league but it is likely to be a bit faster paced than 1 fixture every two weeks -

The season will be split into two halves

There will be a mid seaon transfer window where you can refresh your squad a little bit

You'll play everyone once in each half

You could play everyone across a couple of evenings if you wanted

The key thing is that you have to report both the score and any injuries sustained to players from either team (players marked with a plaster in the match stats) in the thread

Players injured in the first half of the season are out until the second half unless you have a magic sponge (each sponge has just one use)

Players injured in the second half of the season are out of the game unless you use a sponge

There are other things Steely and I are working on (perks could be back and some of the new ones you can pick are nasty!!!) that make the front end a bit more fun

Ps - I've nudged Albie via text to hurry up and pick City

You can only openly transfer with other managers in the league.

Regarding players from elsewhere you have a small handful of NonFTLs which you use to buy players from foreign clubs like Bayern, Real etc, this is done in a bidding thread.

Again it will all be come a bit clearer as we go on and post up the guidelines for the season.

Couldn't the people not in the same star rating as Cary still take their pick. Like whoever Gooner, Steely and Jamin pick won't be affected by who Cary picks as they can't pick that team anyway. same goes with Graham, Shalo and Sean but Graham still needs to pick first. Or does it need to go in that order?

People dont have to pick there star rating, they can pick below it if they choose so it needs to go in order really as unlikely as it maybe that somekne plumps for blackpool instead of Jamin but it could happen!

PS Jamin, which ever rating sofifa says they are as of the latest update.
