    Will vote later.

    I was thinking that if I set up an FM one, rather than allow each person to pick their tactics I'd simply put them in as a manager and then allocate them a Points Budget to spend on attributes like Tactical Knowledge, Determination, Motivation, and then they could select their preferred formations etc.

    With the Premiership FF draft complete and this one nearing its conclusion, what are we going to do next?

    I'd quite like one that goes back far enough to include players from the early/mid 90s!

    Just wait and see... :D

    Yes, a 1994-2014 draft with categories, bidding, drafting and mayhem...

    (still in production but should start late August / early September, watch this space)

    Football Manager Draft

    tottivillarossi, did you want to host the next 'Football Manager Draft', after we finish 'The 2014 World Football Market Draft'?

    We've still got the Semi Finals, Final and Awards Ceremony to come... it'll be wrapped up in a week probably.


    You could at least start a new thread now to gain interest and iron out the rules...?

    :thumb



    [My next draft will probably start in October then]

    ^ Will I need the game on my computer in order to play?

    Haven't had it for a while and deleted steam cos it kept slowing my computer down on start up.

    knew you'd take Benatia lol. So that's Benatia, Lahm & Barzagli, basically a whole new defence that you've added.

    Didn't want to change my attackers or midfield, they're some of my favourite players in world football - wanted to keep my 4-2-3-1 formation too.

    Yes, need a replacement for Vidal. Unfortunately, no one has Emre Can :(

    Emre Can could win the game on his own. Complete footballer Vidal creams of emulating.

    I love how he's walked straight into the team. Both he and Lovren look like they've played there for years. Both want the ball and are easy on the eye with it.
