seems like it could be fun, need a minimum of five players

Wow, this is precisely what I've been looking for for years. The American-style draft system for a fantasy football game. Brilliant. I'm definitely in. Team name: Sirius Cybernetics

Yes.

Lots of different leagues opened up here now. I'm a right in counting 4 different FF events from 3 different sites?

I've signed up for them all, which ultimately means my Euros are already ruined.

Are we doing the "hardened fantasy league veteran with 18 in a squad" one, or the "quick punchy version with 11 men in the squad" one? Or somewhere in the middle?

The suggested settings of 15 players, 100m, 2 from a country, and limited transfers seems like something we're all used to.

The problem with leaving it until near the first game is that it will probably take 3 or 4 rounds of bidding for everyone to finish their squads

Too soon is better than too late. And we're all in the same boat, so I won't complain if we're not certain of a few first XI's.

Ah ok. I get ya. How many days do ya reckon that would take?? Agree we don't wanna leave it too late. But find a balance, ya know. June 8th the big kick off

edit just after looking at the friendlies roster, most will be completed on Sat 02nd June. Maybe start the bidding on Sunday 03rd?? Or do you think that would be cutting it tight??

We would want to allow for four bidding rounds just in case and try and have them done before Friday the 8th, what about the following:

Round 1: Deadline midnight Sunday June 3rd
Round 2: Monday June 4th 12pm until midnight
Round 3: Tuesday June 5th 12pm until midnight
Round 4: Wednesday June 6th 12pm until midnight
