Get unlimited transfers for when the premiership stops for the World Cup.
Wow thanks. Thus I can do early wildcard.

My draft so far which is not great.

Keeper?
Robertson Cancelo Chilwell/James Perisic Coufal
Salah Saka Neto Gordon/Gray Martinelli
Haaland Toney Greenwood

I am not super happy with Toney, but he is nailed on pens and have decent enough fixtures.
Watkins for 0.5 might be better to start with I think.

Martinelli is a wait and see, but for 6 million him and Elanga feels like those with highest potential if getting minutes.

Got to say the prices did feel cheap, but it is quite balance still.

Jesus 8 missed that. I think he can be worth it over Saka. For me Jesus and Coutinho feels maybe slighly better than Saka and Watkins. Although do not trust Coutinho.

What do you guys rather have. Mbeumo plus TAA or Toney and Robertson? The second feels stronger, but cost more. Robertson, Mbeumo also one option and save even more money.

Wow how hard this was.

I want Salah, Haaland, Cancelo, TAA/Robbo, Chilwell/James, but there is no money left then.

Pre seaso will change my team, but not sure big at the back is worth it when building a squad. The cheap midfielders are much worse than 5 defenders.

I might just have Elanga in my squad for fun and hope he plays a lot.
I've currently got TAA/Robertson/Cancelo/James/Salah/Haaland, a couple of 4.5m rotation boys, Newcastle's Bruno, and should Sterling be sold, Grealish at 7m could be outrageous value. Think there's a couple of decent cheapish mids too.

Obviously the 2 strikers are chumps and cheapos.

Perisics ownership is going to be off the scales bonkers.
I thought that at first, then quickly realised it's 95% of teams doing a quick auto complete and it just populates all the middle value players! 5.5m defender, 7m mids!

I've gone for heavy hitters and plan to transfer out the dross when the value options become apparent.

GK: Mendy
DF: Cancelo, Robbo, White, Mitchell, Vestergaard
MD: Salah, Son, Bruno G, Neto, Gordon
FW: Haaland, Johnson, Good Greenwood

The big temptation is if Sterling moves to Chelsea then I'll go Son > Sterling and use the extra 2.0 to upgrade Johnson > Watkins and Robbo > TAA.

Mendy, Sanchez
Chilwell, Taa, Walker, Perisic, Tomiyashu
Salah, Rashford (?), Coutinho, Willock (?), Neto
Jesus, haaland, Undav(?)

Fiest draft completed. Now, lets deal with question marks.
Rashford maybe will not play in first 11, Wolves have two away games in first 3 gw and Willock and Undav are bench

Mad go so big. I think it is a very poor strategy with so many cheaper picks around that free money.

With time you will earn points, but I think you will not reach those insane hights by having a squad with 11 great picks unless there is cheap gems from the start.

I have no idea how to do that either. Last year I had it though.

Tsimikas, TAA, Shaw, Reguilon great def with White backup.

Barnes Raphinha Bruno Salah.

Ings Toney Antonio

Apart from White all those picks have high ceiling. Toney maybe not proven, but still a guy that loved scoring goals.

Feels like players got too expensive this year, but I might find a way to fit them in. Tsimikas over Robbo saved like 3 million that made such strong start possible.

I will go on pre season to find gems that builds a great side hopefully.

How is that hard? It's borderline ridiculous being able to have all those players in the first place.

Also if cheap midfielders are much worse than 5 defenders, how is big at the back not worth it?

The greatest team in history
Sexy draft 2

Sanchez (Steele)
Perisic TAA Chilwell Cancelo (Tomiyasu)
Salah Diaz Rashford Neto (Colback)
Haaland Wilson (Greenwood)

Don't really like Neto but not much happening in that £5.5m mid slot. Could go Robertson and Doherty over TAA and Perisic or even a City CB over Cancelo to free up another £1m and bring Odegaard back in for Neto or Mount/Foden in for Rashford. Lots of juicy options.

First for sure, but if Neto is on your bench the second might do better.

I think Jesus will score more goals than Saka, but who scores the most points is quite tricky.
Thinking 1st as it gives me Tomiyasu and Cafu on the bench who are likely to play rather than starting Tomi and only having Cafu on the bench.

Teams going to change a few hundred times between now and deadline anyway.

Needs me some research as genuinely don'know who Cafu is. Bar the all time legend!

Grealish and Nacho have potential to be gems, but not sure how much they play.

With Sterling going Grealish can improve and Haaland could help him get assists.

Ooh you are going Rashford. Brave. He has been so poor and certainly the most likely United player to get subbed early or subbed on.

I hope Rashford can bounce back, but yeah unless he looks great in pre season I will avoid I think.

Not a good team. Where has the money gone? You’ve only got one premium and no TAA.

Pretty certain it’s impossible to get better than this.
