    You will be given a transfer budget of £150m.

    I will post a category, then you will PM me with a bid for a player, that fits the category. Bid in multiples of millions or half millions e.g. You can bid £1m or £1.5m, but not £1.3m or £1.68m.

    If two people bid on the same player, the highest bid wins. If you don’t get a player via a bid, you have to bid again on the same category, losing the amount from your original bid plus the amount from your next bid.

    If two people bid the same amount on a player, I will PM them both to increase their bid, until one of the two has a higher bid.

    If you fail to get a player on your third attempt, you will be assigned a player by the person who got the original player you bidded for.

    When all bids are in, I will reveal who has made a successful bid and who needs to bid again. Once everyone has a player, I will reveal the players chosen.

    Then we’ll move on to the next category.

    Categories, in order, are as follows:

    Round 1: Pick a player who has scored over 100 career goals (competitive games only, club & international goals included)

    Rnd 2: Pick a player who has never won a league title (lower division titles are still league titles, as are Brazilian state leagues)

    3: Pick a Ballon d’or winner

    4: Pick a goalkeeper.

    5: Pick a player who has scored in a domestic cup final.

    6: Pick a player with more than 50 caps, but less than 80.

    7: Pick a player who has been a teammate of your previous pick.

    8: Pick a World Cup winner.

    9: Pick a player who has won a league outside of the top leagues in England, Spain, Italy and Germany. To be clear, if a player had won the top league in those four countries, they’re ineligible.

    10. Pick a one club player. The likes of Xavi and Gerrard are not one club men, but if a player was loaned to another club, they can still be considered a one club man.

    11. Pick any player you want.

    ——


    Please don’t give hints as to who you’re bidding for in the thread.

    Who’s in?

    That’s 11 of you in. You can start sending your first bid, for category one now. Categories are in the OP. Anyone else has until 21:00 to join in. If you want to join in, just send me a PM with your bid. :50:

    When are you planning on starting this? Because I'm away to Wellington for the weekend so might not be able to take part.
