    I was hoping to include all the big European leagues (and Champs League / Europa).

    Can change to purely Prem league if that’s what everyone wanted.

    We could do like what we used to where we have 2 people draft separately then combine their teams during a tourney. However, let's draft 17 players each, and each of the drafted player can only be used once during the tournament. If the 16 teams form into 8 partner-teams, that's a maximum of 3 games to win the tournament (quarter-final, semi-final, and final), or in other words, each partnership need to use 33 of their 34 drafted players to win the tournament.

    The requirement to use different player each match will force each partnership to actually work together and discuss their best strategy. It'll also force each partnership to plan ahead, saving their best players for later, while still putting out a team good enough to win the current round. If we have 16 teams, each drafting 17 players, that's 272 players. We can afford to go for a bigger pool of player, and we'd still get lesser known players, imo.

    I actually hope they win. Spurs winning the UCL would be the darkest timeline.

    R.I.P, Retired, Current draft.

    Each pick you need to alternate between a player no longer with us, a player who is alive but retired and a player still playing.

    But easy, bit of fun.

    I like it @The Doc .

    I was also thinking about the greatest all time draft again, i know it has been done on a number of occasions but since then, we have had new drafters and it will be interesting to see what route they go down.

    So, I just watched the movie 'Rocketman' and since it's July, I'm thinking about doing a bidding draft with an Elton John theme.

    The rules will be similar to Rupert Murdoch Draft but the talent pool will be performances in domestic English games (League + FA Cup + League Cup) from 1976-2002 (the time he was chairman of Watford).
