    So everyone thinks they know a bit about footy but do we really know what we are talking about or is it just media spouted nonsense.

    This thread is your chance to show you know what you are on about and understand what makes a good player.

    So you get to pick a team of 11 players and can use any formation as long as it has at least 3 defenders.

    This will be open ended and managed by yourself. So ongoing bragging rights is the only prize.

    This includes the English Italian German French and Spanish leagues.

    Basic Points.
    League Win 10 points
    Domestic Cup Win (League Cup not included) 5 points
    CL Win 15 points
    Europa Cup Win 5 points

    So there is a certain amount of points you can get by adding the whole Liverpool team at the moment or being savvy and adding all the Bayern players BUT.

    Bonus Points
    Player sold who then wins one of the above with his new club plus 25 points
    Under 21 year old and plays 50% of games in one of the competitions plus 15 points
    Top Scorer in any competition plus 10 points
    1st team League debut for a youth player plus 50 points

    So can you pick the stars of the future?

    Post up your scores and I'll sort out a final league at the end of each season.

    Making this up as I go along so may have to adjust things and happy to consider any suggestions.

    You pick a new team once the season is over at any point during pre-post season.

    Maybe, it's just once a season though. Pick a team of players who you think will be win competitions but get yourself extra points by picking the players that are going to make the big moves or youth players who you think will make the step up. So player knowledge is key and spotting ability is key.

    The rest of this season will be a bit of a trial and if it works and is fun then I'll keep it going next season.

    Example then.

    Alisson
    TAA Gomez VVD Robbo
    Messi Sancho Isco
    Werner Haaland Immobile
    Easy enough to pick the Liverpool back 4 or PSG for example but next season you could look to someone like Upamecano from Leizpig or Koulibaly from Napoli and if they get a move and a trophy you get the bonus points.

    Same in the middle, if you think we will win the league again and Curtis Jones will step up then he's worth more points.

    Up top you may go Werner and he moves to Liverpool and gets top scorer then again bonus points over someone who's already with us. Vinicus Jr at RM would have got you big bonus points this season.

    This may end up being a pre-season thing but a bit of a test is needed.

    Too heavy for me, la. I'll watch on with feigned interest. I only care how one team does really, but I know you're trying to generate traffic. Let the other boards know <ok>

    When astro is the only poster that seems interested then you know that you need a re-think.
