    Ahh I thank you very much for this reply, this sounds like fun!
    So can you pick anyone from the pre-90's in this example, from any country, or would it just have to be from this one?

    This one is supposed to be UK only and a time period (think from 1980 to 1992). So players who have played during that time in the UK are eligible. Everyone else is blocked and can't be picked

    The draft will start once the current draft gets over.. Which will probably be another week or so

    I know how it works I’ve played in several and if you don’t get your name in early there’s no chance

    We have 19 players for 16 slots now, @Edgar Allan Pillow do you need a hand running the draft?

    @TRossManUtd8 when the draft starts the draft master will tag you and you have to claim your spot. It is normally first come first serve basis

    Can newbies post unlimited now? Auction drafts take a lot of posts up.

    @TRossManUtd8 you'll probably have to team up with someone who has unlimited access. 3 posts would not be enough

    Will probably be all-time, but will skew this away from GOATs. Any suggestions?

    I will wait my time then. Thank you everyone. I will check back for another draft when I am a full member.

    Yeah i know.. At this point there in enough interest for both.. So doesn’t matter which one goes up first.. Fairly certain @Moby won’t care which draft runs first

    I don't mind doing UK first. Then we can relax with an all time.

    Your face is boring.

    About time we appreciate those Forest and Villa teams playing route 1 football.

    have you guys ever done a 'no-caps' draft? Think that'd be quite interesting.

    By interesting do you mean borderline pointless?

    I hope you will go for a UK draft.

    Interesting idea for sure. The issue is the pool of interesting players would be extremely limited. Your idea will reject a lot of players most of us don't know.

    In the past, I tried to convince them to a opt for a "Losers Draft": players who never won a major trophy (World Cup, Champions League, Euro, Copa America....).

    It's time for us to go into the deep end, like we did with the Reserves Draft (RIP).

    A reserves' reserves draft awaits for the purists.

    Depends on your opinion I suppose. But from a spectator point of view, the endless drafts full of well known, great players is a bit boring.
    That would also do the the trick I reckon. Would make it quite challenging.

    I badly think that the drafts need a break. One after the other with the same participants can only go on for so long before bickering starts, as seen in the last few drafts.
