Hey everyone, its yo dawg libby. Seriously though g'day everyone. As you've seen above, I'm running the superleague already however its not THAT difficult to run now that I know how to make leagues. This is my next big game and I'll explain how it is.

Basically, this will be a league consisting of fantasy teams on 1FF. You decide on the team name, team colours and I'll make it into a team on Football Manager on VS. Basically all you have to do is send me your team formation, lineup and a match strategy (go for win, go for draw, etc)

How will the teams be determined? There shall only be one way and that is through drafts. Here are the players I have in mind at the moment. I'll add more mind you though, I'll stop adding once I close registration.

As in:

GK (D)
FB (S) CD(D) CD(D) FB(S)
DLP (S) BWM (S)
IF(A) AP(A) IF(A)
P(A)​
Fluidity: Balanced
Mentality: Standard

Instructions:

Shorter Passing
Exploit the middle
Hassle Opponents
Use offside trap
Be more expressive
Look for overlap

That may be too much info, but hey ho. That's my FM14 tactics, so they may fail horrifically in 15, but there we go. Not to mention that is built around my players of:

Alex McCarthy
Gino Peruzzi Jovanni Zamarripa Alessio Romagnoli Francisco Luduena
Sergi Roberto Nabil Bentaleb
Jack Grealish Roberto Martinez Bruma
Mauro Icardi/Mario Balotelli
That is my Aston Villa team of 2017/18 after relegation in their first season (I was England manager, won the world cup then went to Villa in the Championship!!!), (Bare in mind this is in FM14) won the Championship without losing a game, and I've now got to the point where I'm challenging for the Premier League title after finishing 4th last year and retaining the Europa League and the FA Cup (lost in the final of the League Cup!!!), also won the Super Cup against Monaco (6-0 :lol: ), and the Charity Sheild on penalties after a 3-3 draw with Chelsea.

If this isn't successful in FM15, then I give up!!!

I actually think we don't need the starter kits. Everyone is giving me all the info I need :lol:

Cheers. I'll register you both. Also about to add new players to the draft. To few CB's at the moment.

You don't have to do all the detail yet. I'll send you a PM eventually and you'll give me the information when you want.

Anyways we have 4 people meaning the game will go on. I'm gonna close the registration on thursday or friday whenever I feel is best. Hopefully we get some more people!

The draft date will be announced after the registration is closed.

Alright so I'm gonna close the registration tomorrow at 5 PM UK time. Then after that I will do a draw on who gets the draft picks in an order. For example, if I pick Walsall Villa first, they get the first pick and it continues on.
