    You.

    MMH, Beefy or Dave always updates the thread title with the names of the next four people to pick.

    I understand why you would have European players in the top 10 of BCWRONGS but they should be in a completely separate pool, you numpty.

    9 of the top 10 in "Grims Sheet of Pretty Colours" have either all been taken or were keepers.

    Rory McCallister (Peterhead)

    Their manager is quoted as saying "Well he's no Jon Shaw but he'll do"

    Which bit? Only the top 6 teams or something get european players. The rest of us have to make do with players who play in eligible leaguyes (Scotland and England).

    Basically you dont get one as you didnt qualify for Europe last season. Dont worry about it too much, it will make sense to you as the season goes on.

    You can however take a risk on a player in Europe (or indeed the world) if you think he is going to sign for a team in an eligible. So say for example you had heard that Tottenham where about to sign lets say Robert Lewandowski you could pick him but you will be left short if he doesnt sign for you at some point in this window and will then be forced to pick up another player.

    Also say you did sign Lewandowski with your first pick and then Beefy or whoever takes him with his Euro pick later in the draft you will lose him anyway as his Euro pick takes precedence over your normal pick.

    My advice is not to worry about foreign based players unless you have insider info or something. And if you wanted to take one wait until the bottom end of the draft where the loss of the player should he not sign wouldnt be so bad.

    Top six in the league + the winner of the cup get the chance to draft a player from any of the main European leagues. You can only pick one player and you can't swap him for another Euro player later (for example Jay had David Villa last season as his Euro player and once he got injured he had to swap him out for a domestic player).

    We also have a second cup competition called the MMH Cup which also gives everyone access to a European player. Teams are eliminated from the MMH Cup when they don't score a goal amongst their eight squad players in a single week. The last team standing wins a Euro player which they can keep for the duration of the next MMH Cup (which starts the following game week).

    Currently turdpower & MMH are in the final two of this current MMH Cup.

    EDIT - or what MMH said

    Yeah just see how it play outs.

    Biggest tip that you could get right now, Simon, is something which gets said every year. Don't worry too much about the draft. Obviously try to get the best squad that you can but you'll find that the vast majority of teams are completely different by mid October to what they are at the end of the draft itself.

    This game is all about picking up players through the season and picking the right five players on a Saturday.

    Because whilst we're all convinced when we draft a player that he's going to be an example of how great we are at spotting talent, actually we're not. Plus often you'll pick a player convinced that he's going to score 20 goals once he gets into his club's side but the reality of only having eight spots available to you means that you often don't have the luxury of being able to wait so you end up dropping him for someone who happens to be playing against Barnet the next Saturday.

    It's just the way the game works out. Obviously if you can pick up a Robin van Persie or Jordan Rhodes in the draft then brilliant but more flops get drafted than success stories.

    I got this request from SOB and my first thought was "why the fuck is Seanny One Ball following me on twitter?!?!"

    Then saw a tweet that was basically "something something something #fuckoffarsenal", joined the dots and voila.

    Yeah, I need to get involved also. I was fairly obsessed with Twitter for a while when I had my iPhone (Tweetbot > *), but I haven't touched it since I switched to Android about a year ago because there wasn't a single half-decent Twitter App. Thankfully, a number of them have all pretty much arrived on the scene at the same time recently - Boid and Tweet Lanes (both of which are still in Beta mode) - and Carbon is being released this week, as well.

    Mikey doesn't have a list... let's be serious here, he is an unemployed bum right now and the last thing unemployed people do is get organised.

    I'll be doing the usual and sending PM's out to those who have imminent picks to try and speed things along a little. I won't be PM'ing everyone, though, because a fair few of us are pretty active and don't need reminders.

    I'll be around a fair bit now, so anyone who wishes to leave a small list of players, feel free to do so.

    I've sent a tweet to BBF so hopefully he can make his pick soon.

    I'd suggest a three point penalty for Grim, but that would be a third of his points total for the season.

    Are you Chris LFC (or something) on there? I was going to tweet you but wasn't sure if I was about to tweet some other Chris who supports Liverpool on my followers list.

    Twitter is already proving really handy this year for chasing people up about their upcoming draft picks.

    Can't believe I have to wait for an hour for BBF to make his pick

    Mikey has left me with a few options for him if BBF picks and he is away.

    Do we have a list of twitter names for managers/teams?

    If so we can be like WWE and when our teams are announced we can have it small underneath them...

    I was stuck between 3. Davies could get a shedload in the Championship though. Hopefully one of my others stays until my next pick.

    When he turned 35, some people said that the chances of Kevin Davies ever being a first round RFF draft pick were gone.

    Those people look a bit silly now.

    Christopherson was online about 40 minutes ago. Don't suppose he left a list with anyone?

    bah! I hoped he might slide under the radar. I was going to have him as my keeper but thought that by not discussing my keeper choice in here noone would even know he existed.

    He was going to be my no 1 pick if he had still been available surprised he took this long to go to be honest.

    He was high on my list too Alex. I think St Chris is going to steal my main round 2 target.

    That's why I was surprised you made the list comment. I said to Beefy on saturday that you would pick Richards. Chesterfield are rumoured to be giving him 4k a week and their transfer business has been pretty good.

    Really? He's a part-timer in a team that seemed to have an anomaly of a season. He hasn't even got a wikipedia which made me wonder if he'd still be available in the third round. He won me quite a few points on his own last season.

    I have a feeling when I make my first pick I'm going to get laughed at for having made a massive oversight, as it seems there are really obvious ones that haven't been picked yet

    Christopherson obviously missed the fact that this draft has to be wrapped up by Friday.

    Why does it have to be done by Friday? And how long does each person technically have, is it 8 hours?

    It doesn't need to be done by any set time, well apart from by the time the season starts. It's usually 12 hours per pick.

    I am stunned at the signing of Kevin Davies early in Round 1. Stunned.

    It doesn't, he was being facetious and it is normally 12 hours each.

    Why? He's going to score a hatful with his big fat forehead. BBF Guarantee.

    Probably because he's 35, has never been a goalscorer and often didn't even get in the team last season.

    I have faith in you though, BBF.

    Kevin Davies is an odd choice it must be said. I fancy Ngog and Sordell to outscore him.

    This is like Grant Holt from last year all over again. Except it won't turn out remotely as well.

    MMH won't like you saying it, but it's what we were all thinking.

    We'll see, I think he'll do really well in the Championship and lead the line for Bolton.

    As you've already said though, the draft is often a poor litmus test for a squad especially in the early couple of rounds. Its a punt but I think it will come off.

    Its just an unwritten rule that you don't really name players that haven't been picked yet.

    It's not really a rule but it must be fairly obvious why we don't want to be discussing undrafted players in public. We want as many 'Kevin Davies picks' as possible, we don't want to direct these people to decent picks.

    To be fair to BBF of the two mentioned that we think outscore Davies one of them couldn't manage to do so last season and the other barely got a game after signing in fact until i was doing some research i forgot he was even at Bolton. Despite all this i still Davies is a poor pick as i can't see him or Bolton doing too much next season.
