2. Alfredo Di Stéfano cannot be selected.
3. You can only select players who have at least 1 full match on the interwebz. Please post a valid link with each of your picks, and also note that footballia.net is intermittently offline because of copyright claims, which throws a spanner in the works:

4. Initial squads will be formed of 12 players.
5. Snake style drafting.
6. Picks will be timed to speed things up, but you will be afforded up to 8 hours to submit your selection. Please note that the manager with the lowest pick time will receive a special gift at the end of the initial drafting phase — that should be reason enough to rush. In case multiple managers have the same pick time, the winner/receiver-of-the-gift will be decided by randomization.
7. Once the pick is posted there is no going back. In case of an invalid selection, the next manager does not need to wait but the invalid pick can be replaced anytime.
8. Players will be judged on a career peak of 3 years.
9. As always, no naming of unpicked players!


Match Rules

1. There shall be no subs during the game, but tactical changes are permitted.
2. In the event of a draw, the winner shall be decided on the basis of Redcafe Goalkeeper Rankings. In case both goalkeepers are not on the list, the winner will be decided by a neutral.


Reinforcements

• Quarterfinal: Reverse snake style reinforcement from teams that lost their Round 1 matches. 2 players as reinforcement.
• Semifinal: Sheep style reinforcement from the pool of eliminated and unpicked-but-valid players. Maximum of 2 players as reinforcement.
• Final: Sheep style reinforcement from the pool of eliminated players, unpicked-but-valid players and players with no video evidence. Maximum of 1 player as reinforcement.

Since Physiocrat won't be able to start until Friday...
FYI I can't start until Friday so if someone can start earlier and wants to take my place please do so
...the manager with the first pick will have until 2000 Hrs BST on the 24th of July to submit his pick. I will publish the randomized selection order roughly 8 hours before that (i.e. ~1200 Hrs BST on the 24th of July), so that the manager with the first pick is on a level playing field with the rest. Good luck everyone, you can use the next couple of days to recharge your batteries or investigate the pool! :)

Timer starts at 1200 hrs BST and you have until 2000 hrs BST to submit the pick, @harms.

@Enigma_87 with the second pick and @Joga Bonito with the third.

you would think being sixth in line that the people before would help by picking some of your candidates(though we didnt have Schuster as available) but no, useless feckers!
