Thats really annoying. Theres no option to only show signable players. That better be sorted out when it starts proper, cos thats a huge ball ache
It'll surely be available once the league starts.

Similarly might have been nice to compile all the teams but surentheyll be free to see come Friday night

If a huge player joined the league, there'd almost be a temptation to have a shocker 1st week for the waiver wire :lol:

if you go to https://draft.premierleague.com/team/transactions you can see the players available to sign and who you can swap out of your team. looks straightforward enough

Are we going to have an agreed format and forum for transfers? Say for instance I want to sign someone from somebody elses team, and they agree to let them go for someone from my team. Will we have agreements in place via the league commishioner that nobody else can sign those players once they are available?

because from the looks for it its a free for all and it will be determined by the order of the waiver that week

Reports now that a fee has been agreed.

Keith had some strange picks. Trippier and Pickford as 2nd and 3rd picks. Like i get Trippier is a bargain in the regular game, but price has no bearing on this
Yeah, so i completely forgot about this yesterday and they were my watchlist autopicks that it went through for me.

I had them sorted in order early last week, and then somehow wiped the whole thing, so built the watch list from sctratch again, only put 50 names into it, but didn't put them in any order this time. Meant to come back to it and sort it a bit better, and was having a great long weekend, so just never did. The likes of Carzorla and Origi never featured, they must have been late picks.

Cool story bro.


Tripper and Pickford wouldn't have been quite that high, but they'd have been high enough.
Happy enough with the team still mind, bar the lack of a decent striker. Maybe this will be Origi's break out season.

It was set up as a free one in the first place, we can just set up another league for anyone who's paying in

i wonder will FFScout get the finger out and actually predict lineups today, considering deadline is 6:45pm

Tinkered with my regular squad last night, reckon everyone i have is a starter, but would be nice to be validated. Note sure why I'm too worried, I'll probably give up on the regular game by October.

my current team:

Foster (Elliot)
Milner Trippier Holding (Mawson Duffy)
Alli Salah Willian Milivojevic (Carroll)
Hernandez Lacazette Kane

Milner & Trippier probably the biggest doubts

And FFScout has put in Team News now today
