The AM EUROS Draft Sign-Up and Discussion Thread

Hello everyone,

The picks

Now we've finally finished with the CL draft (congrats again @A_G) and with the Euros only two months away I think it's the perfect time for the chaos and mayhem that only an annual Arsenal-Mania draft can provide.

I was very happy with the results from the simming even if it took a little bit longer to write up than planned... so largely we'll keep the structure the same. This time round I feel like we can make some changes to reflect which players had good tournaments and which flopped. Although all of that will be revealed...

For now though I'd like to get an idea of numbers so if you would like to play now's your time to sign up before we get the ball rolling on the weekend! Eight teams ideally but we can expand based on numbers without any problem so comment below if you'd like in.

Rules to follow in the next few days...

Any chance we could start this on Sunday instead of Saturday?

I am out tomorrow and I want to actually try and do this well, as opposed to the randomised nonsense I got last time 😅

@Rex Stone you gonna shed some light on your proprietary rexodomy algorithm that will overlay performance with underlying stats?

Like say someone picks Henry 04 - pretty mid tournament for him with just 2 goals but it’s still peak Thierry right - how would that get reflected?

It's just what they did based on their Euros performances from the specific tournament you pick, no peak/club stuff.

Got a feeling that @jones inclination to game the system (Yaya Toure :lol: ) getting into same team with the draft master, will bring some invaluable insider info, which will bring many questions.

Brother @jones, as tonight is holy night of Kadr, you better come clean and confess no shady dealings 🙏

Yeah but in that case how do you build the profile of like a CDM who doesn’t have headline stats like G/A?

So wait no more AM... the order is in!

And the first pick in the 2024 Euros draft will be made by none other than.... @GDeep™ !!!!

Just to remind everyone that at the end of the 2nd round the order will flip to neutralise any advantage of the first pick meaning @SA Gunner and @Uncle Good-Advice will lead off the third round.

@albakos can you set up the selection thread?

@GDeep™ you are on the clock! Ideally make your pick tonight but the game will lock at 9pm and re-open at 9am.

I still can't believe I randomly picked Sterling at wingback in one of these, then Graham Potter did it in real life like a day later.

That will never not be funny/stupid 🤣

So it's not a perfect system when using contemporary video games but that is where I've got the ratings from and then applied bonuses and penalties based on a few different categories.

One for example is the "Luca Toni" rule. In 2008 he was an absolute beast at Bayern but in the Euros he missed sitter after sitter and the only "assist" he got was a flop for a penalty assist against the French.

Now he'd carry a gigantic rating through to this unless we penalise him for lack of production from open play.

Also now is the best time to say echoing FIFA Ultimate Team I have assigned ratings to all 1000+ players and they can be grouped into the following categories so you can get quick reactions to your picks as we go:

🫏 - You have chosen very poorly and ended up with a donkey...
🥉- Solid choice and the minimum expectation for each pick
🥈- Slightly rarer than bronze and a clear level up in quality
🥇- You've picked a world class player here
💎 - Only a handful of these players exist. The best of the best and rarest of the rare...
 

Arsenal Quotes

It was a unique moment, a football fairytale. Was there anyone left who still believed I could give that kind of performance? Probably only Arsène Wenger.
