    Football Manager Draft: Legends


    Back again with the second Football Manager Draft after the successful test run. I have changed a few things, and added a few things, so please take a couple of minutes to read below. Any questions just ask.

    The premise of this is that each of you will build a team which will when be inputted onto the current version of Football Manager. Results will then be simulated to find out who has picked the best team.

    This time however, you will have to build your team around 10 randomly assigned legends that will be added into your team at the start of the draft.

    Legends:
    I have created 160 legends that have been added into the game. They have all been assigned a tier, with 32 players in each tier. Tier 1 being the highest rated players all the way down to Tier 5 the lowest. All players in the same tier are the same rating. Before the draft, each player will receive 10 legends, 2 players from each tier. You will then draft 10 more current time players in order to complete your squad. My recommendation is that you focus initially on improving positions where you have tier 4/5 players as there will definitely be some better current time players in this position. As a reference, Tier 1 players are similar to Messi / Ronaldo level and Tier 5 would be the equivalent of a decent Champions League level player.

    The following legends have been added into the game:

    Lev Yashin - 1

    Managers:

    As with last time, each player will pick a manger to lead there team and to be in charge of all tactics and team selections. Manager’s will often used their preferred formation or tendencies. (E.G Conte would normally play 3 central defenders.) Manager’s will be picked on the second round of the draft, as well as a player. To continue the legends theme I have created 16 now retired managers that are available to be picked. You do not have to pick one of these, current time managers are also averrable to be picked. The list of legend managers is ordered in ability. Sir Alex being slightly above Guardiola’s rating in game and Sir Bobby is similar to Klopp / Poch ratings. You are free to sack your manager at any point and replace him with any manager not currently at one of the other teams.

    The following managers are available to be picked (Preferred formation also listed):

    Sir Alex Ferguson: 4-4-2
    Rinus Michels: 3-4-3
    Bob Paisley: 4-4-1-1
    Sir Matt Busby: 4-3-3
    Helenio Herrera: 5-3-2
    Brian Clough: 4-4-2
    Giovanni Trapattoni: 4-2-3-1
    Vicente Del Bosque: 4-2-3-1
    Bela Guttmann: 4-2-4
    Jock Stein: 4-2-4
    Sir Alf Ramsey: 4-1-3-2
    Herbert Chapman: 3-2-3-2
    Ottmar Hitzfeld: 4-1-4-1
    Bill Shankly: 4-4-1-1
    Kenny Dalglish: 4-4-2
    Sir Bobby Robson: 4-3-1-2


    Competitions:

    There are 3 competitions every team will compete in each season. The first is a standard league, everyone plays everyone twice. The second is a straight forward knockout. The 3rd as been altered slightly and changed into a Champions League style Group + Knockout. 4 groups of 4 with top 2 into the Quarter Finals.

    Transfers:

    As I intend for this to run for a number of seasons, there will be transfer windows throughout the game. To begin with, there will be no transfer budgets. Once all the draft is finished, there will be a 24 hour window where players can trade players between teams. Any player can be traded, and legends can be traded for current time players. However, each player is only allowed a maximum of 3 trades per window. Trades should be negotiated via PM and confirmed in the thread. To confirm a trade one player should post the deal and the other like the post to confirm.


    Other Notes:

    • As I intend to run for multiple seasons, all players over the age of 30 will be set to 30 years old. All of their other stats will remain the same.
    • 3 hour pick window, starting from Thursday.
    • I am available for any shortlists. If you don’t think you will make the window please send a shortlist as otherwise 16 player drafts can take a long time.

    Squads are complete. @The Red Viper to start us off.

    Remember, 3 hour pick window from the second round.

    I understand this is a completely different draft to anything else so any questions just ask.

    Nesta tier 3, Cannavaro tier 1 lol Did you use a pre existing database for these or do em yourself mate? Thierry Henry's ego would get a massive boost from seeing those ratings...

    Can I also play Pele as a main striker in this game?

    Did them myself with the aid of google as I know not a lot about football pre 2005.

    Most players can play in more than one position, Pele can play as a main striker.

    Not going to lie, some of these tiers are rather puzzling.

    Blame google, and probably some bias to the more recent players.
