Further Rules (Read These Please!)

Any manager may bid for players at any time2 by sending an email naming the requisite player and your bidding price. The League, however, has the right to place a fixed minimum (reserve) price on any player. Once I've received your bid, I'll post the player and the price4 to the forums below and give the rest of the league a short period (probably until the next round of Premiership matches) to bid. There is no limit on when you can make transfers - our 'transfer window' is something a bit different to the one in real life (see below).

You may offer players from any position instead of or in addition to whatever cash you may still hold, but the League will fix the price of any players you offer. For example, there is no use offering Phil Neville in a direct swap for Andriy Shevchenko, because my spreadsheet will probably only calculate Neville's worth at about £0.5m, and this is way below the minimum I would accept for Shevchenko. Players' values will fluctuate depending on the price you paid for them and their performance to date.

To prevent fiddling in the transfer markets, I am limiting transfers to 11: strictly one per position. So any players you bring in after the start of the season will have to be stuck with until May.

All the players still eligible are listed on the pages linked below. If you're after a new player not on the list, let me know and I'll add them:

Goalkeepers | Defenders | Midfielders | Strikers

Players are free to make transfers among themselves at any time, fixing their own prices and terms. Every transfer must be confirmed by an email to the League Chair, otherwise I can't update this page. In order to encourage transfers among yourselves, these are unlimited, and will not count towards your 11 minimum5.

To prevent minus-point-dodging, any defenders or goalkeepers that miss 10 consecutive games for your team will docked points, and you will be asked to buy replacements. They will not count towards your 11 transfers.

The Phantasy Phootball transfer window opens on FA Cup weekend (the first in January). At this point, two of your players (randomly selected) will leave the team, and you will receive the market price for them. They do not count towards your 11 transfers.

My email address is ben dot bateson at gmail dot com. For the sake of simplicity, please put Phantasy Phootball, or something similar, in the subject line.

Important: Make sure you subscribe to this page. Once the season is underway, all transfer announcements will also appear in threads on this page.
