    As for Aubemeyang... I had him down first but I don't see him playing enough to see his big smile. Griezmann always seems happy to me.
    Eriksen. had Modric as I figured Croatian, English and Spanish. No idea how many languages aul Christian has.
    Courtois. Wouldn't have got that... clearly as I didn't get it.
    Muller. I thought the theater was a refernce to the theater of dreams hence Lukaku.
    Godin. One of the finest defenders to play the game.

    Only thing about this "preview" is we now know these players will definately bein the up coming auctions - so for some random reason they all do not crop up in the first few auctions - people will hold cash back and may not buy - sort of gives the game away there are "big names" available

    But I suppose being different from DTL auctions for example is something we should embrace - just feels a bit weird that in "blind" auctions - we already know "x" players that will definatley be in them?!

    It's meant to be a tease for you guys and to kill the time a bit. I will only tease these 10 names so you kind of have an idea what to expect in the auctions.

    Alright, I'll throw the first auctions up tonight at 21:00 GMT with a deadline until Monday 21:00 GMT.

    1. This fast winger does amazing dribbles on the right flank, is known to dive a lot and has a FUT rating of 88! Sterling
    2. This striker always has to stand in the shadow of superstars, argues over taking freekicks and has a FUT rating of 87! Cavani.
    3. This goalkeeper still is one of the best in the world despite his age, is respected by the whole football world and has a FUT rating of 89! Buffon
    4. This defender is really voiced about his political opinion, always plays with long sleeves and has a FUT rating of 87! Pique.
    5. This false 9 is the top goalscorer for his country, has moved back to the club of his youth and has a FUT rating of 81! Rooney.

    We move a bit quicker than anticipated since several managers have become very impatient and can't seem to wait until next sunday! Therefore it has been decided that the first auction, that was supposed to go live sunday, will go live tonight at 21:00 GMT instead!!

    And now onto the revealling of the players.

    Although colml was pretty close, he didn't get the last one right! Erkifino did however guessed it right and it was Wayne Rooney! Erkifino has won the following prize:

    I just want to say that I really appreciate how involved everyone is and that you guys are just as excited and commited to this as I am!

    Although the auctions are only the beginning and probably the most fun part for you lads, I've got a lot more in store and really look forward in making this a succes!

    Now that we're halfway through the auctions, let us take a look at how every manager is doing so far!

    ebfatz (Bayer Leverkusen)

    8 / 18 players

    Gianluigi Buffon - GK

    Alex Sandro - D/DM L
    Kyle Walker - D/AM R
    Jan Vertonghen - D LC

    N'Golo Kanté - DM C
    Marouane Fellaini - M C

    Alexis Sánchez - F RLC
    Alexandre Lacazette - F C

    If we don't count the AWOL Janis89, then ebfatz has gathered the least players so far after five auctions with only 8 players so far. He will need to up his bidding strats if he's to meet the 18 player cap that is required to participate in the league. With plenty of cash still left there is is no doubt that he will succeed in that.

    Biggest names in his squad so far are Gianluigi Buffon, N'Golo Kanté and Alexis Sanchéz.




    Redknapp69 (Hannover 96)

    11 / 18 players

    Jack Butland - GK

    César Azpilicueta - D/AM RLC
    Virgil van Dijk - D C

    Emre Can - DM C
    Georginio Wijnaldum - M LC
    Julian Brandt - AM RLC
    Philippe Coutinho - AM LC
    Raheem Sterling - AM/F RL
    James Rodríguez - AM/F RLC

    Timo Werner - F RLC
    Romelu Lukaku - S C

    Redknapp69 did pretty decent so far with 12 players signed already and spending less than half of his budget. There is a visible tendancy of bidding on Liverpool players which was to be expected from a major fan. With 6 midfielders already, Redknapp69 looks quite well stacked there, but he will need to invest in the defence in the coming auctions.

    Biggest names in his squad are Philippe Coutinho and Romelu Lukaku.




    trunky (VfB Stuttgart)

    14 / 18 players

    Joe Hart - GK
    Kiko Casilla - GK

    Jordi Alba - D/AM L - (Barcelona)
    Marcelo - D/AM L - (Real Madrid)
    Djibril Sidibé - D/DM RL - (Monaco)
    Joshua Kimmich - D/DM RC - (FC Bayern)
    Thiago Silva - D C - (PSG)
    Davinson Sánchez - D C - (Tottenham)
    Jeison Murillo - SW/D C - (Valencia)

    Granit Xhaka - DM C - (Arsenal)
    Christian Eriksen - AM RLC - (Tottenham)

    Kylian Mbappé - F LC - (PSG)
    Graziano Pellè - S C - (Shandong Luneng)
    Karim Benzema - S C - (Real Madrid)

    Although trunky didn't spend any money in the first three auctions, he has splashed some cash in the last two. His defence looks settled, but he looks rather pale in midfield. With only 11.5 M in the bank, he will need to make some good decisions.

    Biggest names in his squad are Thiago Silva, Marcelo, Christian Eriksen and Kylian Mbappé.




    AJ (Eintracht Frankfurt)

    14 / 18 players

    Kasper Schmeichel - GK
    Diego López - GK

    Daniel Carvajal - D/AM R
    John Stones - D C
    Mats Hummels - D C
    Leonardo Bonucci - SW/D C
    José Giménez - SW/D C

    Jean Michaël Seri - M C
    Nadiem Amiri - AM RLC
    Emil Forsberg - AM L
    Mohamed Salah - AM/F RL
    Sadio Mané - AM/F RLC

    Olivier Giroud - S C
    Harry Kane - S C

    AJ has certainly splashed the majority of his cash in the first five auctions. He looks good on all positions, but he can do with some more attacking power.

    Biggest names in his squad are Mats Hummels, Sadio Mané and Harry Kane.




    pyromyst (Borussia Dortmund)

    17 / 18 players

    Ben Foster - GK
    Marco Sportiello - GK

    Diego Llorente - D/AM RC
    Ricardo Rodríguez - D/DM L
    Martin Hinteregger - D LC
    Nicolás Otamendi - D C
    Vincent Kompany - D C
    Kamil Glik - D C
    Dedé - D C
    Niklas Süle - D C

    Sami Khedira - DM C
    André Gomes - M C
    Adrien Silva - M C
    Marco Reus - AM RLC
    Wayne Rooney - AM/F C

    Paulo Dybala - F C
    Gonzalo Higuaín - S C

    By spending almost 30 M, pyromyst made sure to sign 17 players already which means he's 1 player short of the minimum cap. He looks overly stacked on central defenders and not that much on midfielders.

    Biggest names in his squad are Vincent Kompany, Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuaín.




    Janis89 (Hertha BSC)

    0 / 18 players

    Janis89 remains AWOL and has not started building his squad. It's to be seen if he will return to Hertha where the fans are growing impatient.




    Mark (RB Leipzig)

    9 / 18 players

    Miguel Ángel Moyà - GK

    Danilo - D/DM R
    Raphaël Guerreiro - D/AM L
    Javi García - D/DM C

    Geoffrey Kondogbia - DM LC
    Oriol Romeu - DM C

    Sergej Milinkovic-Savic - M C
    Ross Barkley - AM C
    Kevin Mirallas - AM/F RL

    Ezequiel Lavezzi - F LC
    Suso - F RC

    Mark is the only manager so far that hasn't spend any money and attracted all his players on a free transfer. He's steadily picking up players, but failed to attract any real stars. Everyone's wondering when he's going to spend some of that well stacked money.

    Biggest name in his squad is Ezequiel Lavezzi.




    colml (Hamburger SV)

    15 / 18 players

    Marc-André ter Stegen - GK

    Samuel Umtiti - D LC
    Toby Alderweireld - D RC
    Gerard Piqué - D C
    Diego Godín - D C
    Javier Mascherano - D/DM C
    Javi Martínez - D/DM C

    Koke - M RLC
    Leon Goretzka - M RLC
    Hakim Ziyech - AM RC
    Marek Hamsik - AM C
    Joaquín Correa - AM LC
    Ivan Rakitic - AM RC
    Rafinha - AM/F LC

    Thomas Müller - F RC

    It's very clear that colml has a thing for Barcelona since he has already attracted 6 players from their side. With only 8.9 M left in the bank, he will have a tough time to strengthen his attack which looks quite pale so far.

    Biggest names is his squad are Marc-André ter Stegen, Gerard Piqué and Thomas Müller.




    Erkifino (Borussia M'Gladbach)

    12 / 18 players

    Thibaut Courtois - GK

    Marcel Halstenberg - D/DM L
    Giorgio Chiellini - D LC
    Raphaël Varane - SW/D C
    Andreas Christensen - D/DM C

    Julian Weigl - DM C
    Thiago - M C
    Arturo Vidal - M C
    Ángel Di María - AM RLC
    Leroy Sané - AM RL
    Theo Walcott - AM/F RC

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - F RC

    Erkifino is the manager that spend the most money in the first five auctions. With only 6.0 M left, he will need to make some wise decisions especially in his attack which looks meager.

    Biggest names in his squad are Giorgio Chiellini, Raphaël Varane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.




    evesham (Schalke 04)

    17 / 18 players

    Roman Bürki - GK

    Jeremy Toljan - D/DM RLC
    Presnel Kimpembe - D LC
    Stefan de Vrij - D C

    Sebastian Rudy - DM RC
    Roberto Gagliardini - M RC
    Borja Valero - M C
    Corentin Tolisso - M RC
    James McCarthy - M C
    Victor Moses - M/AM RL
    Xherdan Shaqiri - AM RLC
    Pizzi - AM RLC
    Markel Susaeta - AM RL
    Christian Pulisic - AM/F RLC

    Saido Berahino - F LC
    Fedor Smolov - F RLC
    Jonathan Calleri - S C

    With a lot of young talent and arrived veterans, evesham is the great exception in this league. Not bidding on any of the 'Super Stars' earned him 17 players already and sets him 1 player shy of the cap. He's litterally swimming in midfielders and will need to turn his attention to his defence.

    Biggest name is his squad is Stefan de Vrij.




    18 / 18 players

    London35 (FSV Mainz 05)

    Jan Oblak - GK - (Atlético Madrid)

    Jonas Hector - D/M/AM LC - (1.FC Köln)
    Juan Bernat - D/AM L - (FC Bayern)
    Yuri Berchiche - D/AM L - (PSG)
    Sergio Escudero - D/DM L - (Sevilla)
    Davide Zappacosta - D/M/AM R - (Chelsea)
    Ryan Shawcross - D C - (Stoke)
    Winston Reid - D C - (West Ham)

    Christoph Kramer - DM C - (M'gladbach)
    Gabi - M C - (Atlético Madrid)
    Paul Pogba - M C - (Man Utd)
    Hakan Calhanoglu - AM LC - (Milan)
    Marco Asensio - AM/F RLC - (Real Madrid)
    Thomas Lemar - AM/F LC - (Monaco)

    Anthony Martial - F LC - (Man Utd)
    Diego Costa - S C - (Chelsea)
    Ciro Immobile - S C - (Lazio)
    Edinson Cavani - S C - (PSG)

    London35 is the manager that gathered the most players during these first five auctions and the only one that has already reached the 18 player cap. Noticeable is that he has 4 players for the leftback position and not that many central defenders.

    Biggest names in his squad are Paul Pogba, Diego Costa and Edinson Cavani.





    And there we have it! We now know exactly how the teams are looking midway and we're looking forward to next five auctions!

    We will have 5 auctions again after the CPU bids (winter tranfer period) to strengthen your squad. From that point on the 74 players with the highest CA will enter the market as well!
