Perhaps we should lower FFP Cap then and force everyone to sell more players freeing them up for the smaller clubs. Like a -5 cap.
To be fair I do think this would help. It would force people to not hoard.

I don't have an issue with hording, it's part of the game. But at the same time, i've been both a decent team (Forest) and a weak team (Hereford) for a considerable amount of time now and I understand the issue from both sides of the coin. It's part of the reason why I forced FFP Caps on the game when I was at Forest and I certainly didn't have an issue with drafts. I think it's a vital tool for the Gameworld.

Every draft usually means one less manager which means less competition.... Less fun! All of you who desperately aim for a draft should focus on scouting and try to stay at one team a couple of seasons ;) There are plenty of 87,88 players still available that can reach 89,90 in time , same as plenty available listed by other managers.

I guess this is a perfect time to remind @Damien for the Plymouth draft. :)
I've not forgotten, just been taking the terror out for a walk. Once I've sorted out LMS, I'll finish off the squad values.

Southend nearing the 500 mill mark. Very impressive.
Darlington and Southend are model examples of what can be done when starting on a shoestring. Darlington's already been pretty successful in terms of trophies, and I'm sure it won't be long until Southend are too.

Nothing is so common as the wish to be remarkable.

Yea. For sure.
Goodman went for trophies and got them. But his updated squad will need rejuvenating soon.

Damn right it's a cup knockout. My reserves are going to smash you up. I play Chelsea on Thursday so need to rest players for that. I'm not even going to change to a defensive formation, so confident am I in my Stags. It's going to be a massacre-get ready. :lol:

You stand a good chance, all you need is at least a shot on target and it'll go in.

So crushing will be the defeat, you'll need Martins Licis to lift your morale. Your squad will be in so many pieces not even Deepika Ravichandran will be able to stick you back together in time for your next game. :devil:
