Draft CL Draft Sign-up Thread and Discussion

The picks

Now onto the admin side.

  • The idea is to pick a team of 11 players from the Champions League era
  • You will be looking to pick the best players you possibly can for your team for all areas: goalkeeper, defenders, midfielders and attackers
  • The player is picked based upon their performances at their time for the season you chose him for (i.e. if you pick Andriy Shevchenko for AC Milan, his form at Kiev and Chelsea does NOT come into the equation during the competition).
  • You need to select at least one player from the top 5 league in Europe: Premier League (England), La Liga (Spain), Seria A (Italy), Bundesliga (Germany) and Ligue 1 (France).
  • For the season that the player is picked, he must have reached at least the quarter final stage of the competition
  • Each player, must have played in at least one Champions League final.
  • Number 1 gets first pick, Number 2 gets second pick, Number 3 gets third pick and so on....
  • When offline, each member will get 2 hours to make their pick, if you miss the window then your pick will be chosen by the Rexdomizer ™.
  • If the next picker is online and active in discussion he has only 20 minutes to make his pick
  • The game will be frozen each night at 9pm GMT and resume at 9am GMT the following morning. You are still free to make your pick in this period if you want to but are under no obligation to do so.
  • The draft order will be drawn at random and will follow the 3rd round reverse snake format. So the same as last time where we flip the order after the second round. This should stop anyone building up an unfair advantage by going first.
  • The season of your player must have reached one of the below stages depending on when that season falls...
Prior to 1994-95: Quarter finals
1994-95 to 1998-99: Semi finals
1999-2000 to 2002-03: 2nd group stage
2003-04 to present day: Quarter finals

  • AGAIN, You need to draft a starting XI and five outfield substitutes. The 17th round will consist of backup goalkeepers. You have to draft one Goalkeeper in the first 11 rounds.

That’s it for now. The game will hopefully start at 12 noon GMT on Thursday. That should give everyone enough time to figure out the rules and make plans. We may start earlier depending on sign up.

As I’ve said above there will be a definitive result this time! I’ve set up a custom league ready to be simulated, I just have to add your players once selected and fingers crossed we’ll have the results and champion before the Leeds match 🙏

Thanks everyone and enjoy the game!

Lol. I mean he’s clearly only gonna pick Arse players. Give him mad Jens. He’ll love it.

It’s only one player per club :lol:

Seeing as @Riou went Eboue first pick I have a feeling he’s not gonna be happy with Pirlo. Not sure what his game plan was…

As @Riou s team is now officially the forum bike instead of dragging it out by waiting until 11am for a randomiser tomorrow we’ve had @db10_therza make a one off pick for him.

He’s gone with the maestro Andrea Pirlo from the 2006/07 season when Milan got revenge on the Scousers.

We now flip the draft order as it’s the end of round 2 and @farzad4daarse will kick us off.

There’s no obligation to make a pick @farzad4daarse however we’re starting at 9am GMT so if I was you I’d make the pick tonight.

You only have one pick this round.
I will email it to you

I’m sorry but @Riou blagging the #1 pick then missing both of them is hilarious.

What do you mean missed? The guy got Eboue 🤷‍♂️

I am at a business lunch meeting i have a pick in mind but i need to do my statistical analysis. And i pick better when stoned. No time to bake to get the synapses firing

Ok fine but if there’s no pick in my inbox first thing tomorrow I’m not waiting until 11am it’s randomiser 💯
