Auction Format with Hints & Tips
Persons in line chooses next players to go to auction (i'll do this by randomiser)- probably looking at 2 players per day. I will PM those people to pass me who they want to put up for auction
The person that has nominated a player has an automatic starting bid on that player of £1m (so make sure its someone you would be happy with if nobody outbids you!)
Anyone can bid at any time in next 24 hours
£1m MINIMUM increments on bids – e.g you could say £2m or if a “big” player or one you want to secure and scare people off just go bigger e.g £24m
The last bid at 11pm (from the Champman clock time) will win the auction. Any bids at 11.01pm will NOT count. My decision is final on this (as I am not taking part)
Hints & Tips (AKA where I teach you to "suck eggs")
I would suggest not bidding on a player in the following circumstances………..
1 - Your bid puts you over budget – not a clever game to play to push price up as if stuck with him you will get an overspending fine
2 – You already have 2 players from that club – if you bid and end up with him and have 3 players from same club then you will encounter penalty points (50 points penalty for every extra player from a club chosen)
3 – Your bid for a player may mean you have an invalid formation (check the players position from the website and ensure it can fit into a valid formation) - 442, 433, 352, 532, 343, 451 (50 point penalty)
4 – Don’t bid for the sake of it unless you really want the player! We all know how crazy the bidding gets on eBay for things you do not really want
5 – If you are bidding on a wildcard who doesn’t currently play in Prem league – make sure you are willing to take the risk as if he does not move to PL then you are stuck with him until January! (we'll have a transfer window in January)
I would suggest bidding on a player who………..
1 – May have European football and will get to play more games so potential to score more points
2 – Is a “First team” player – i.e – maybe better off picking Troy Deeney rather than Wilfred Bony. Even though Bony is at a “bigger” club – his game time may well be limited. So – consistent playing/points might be a safer option to go for?
3 – Club Captains? – Likely to play so always worth thinking of buying them
4 – 1 “star” player. In January, you can pick a Captain who from January (after Jan transfer window date we will do) until end of season scores DOUBLE points - so - you may want to think of a high scoring player or someone playing in Europe who will have more games etc. This is sometimes the player that can make or break the 2nd part of the season!
