Apologize for the dumb question,  but how do we know who has left EPL?    I just figured that if they ended up on my team,  they are in the league.

Nope, they can all move to Italy tomorrow. This is not the NBA :P
Van Persie was sold on the very day I drafted him...

Within your roster, every player has a story if you click on this name. So you don't have to track it yourself!

One suggestion (coming from someone who managed not to keep this in his mind during draft)- personally think the budget for FA (ie 40 is fine) but would suggest to lower the min bid amount to 1.

Why:
1. You will have injuries/transers/etc- a lot of things happen during one year and with a max of 40 you can get 8 players (granted OK) but at the min price
2. Will encourage people to find value- you see a big start coming to Chelsea- grab him. Find me someone who will do a good job at Aston Villa? Look at matchups? Will encourage spending more time on trades and/or moves and should be more fun.

Again all for Cesc, Aguero and co but think its actually cooler to win with a team full of Stoke/Swansea/WBA stars look, paid defenders, etc vs getting the top guy.

My 5 cents...

I see where you're coming from. This is something I asked myself before I designed this. Both environments work of course, depending on what you're trying to achieve. Yours is more dynamic, and exciting for those 2-3 managers who would be active enough to tweak things on a weekly basis. Mine is more similar to coaching an actual team (free agents are like actual transfers, you'll think twice before spending those $5) and more relaxed for those who want a steady job. Maybe I was a bit egoistic too, because I'll go offline for 6 weeks. Btw I could have gone into even more long-term planning by making this a keeper, but decided against it as the ProFSL community is just not active enough. Every summer for the past 3 years I had to recruit for half the teams again and again, and nobody wants a crappy team with no future perspectives...

PS
If I had chosen for your dynamism, I would have also set the draft minimum at $1.

I guess it's safe to say the first round of free agency went quite smoothly.
Congrats on all your new players! :toast:

:Swansea: compensated for the sale of Angel di Maria.
I'm online tonight, and then back online for good in 8 days, in case you have other claims.

  • Daddy: I ask because I see our picks somewhere between 20-32 and those 2 guys were drafted @ #20 in 2018 & 2019 respectively. Ramsey is imo the best at what he does. Are they?

  • Daddy: Apparently the MLB has put forth the idea of reducing the number of minor-league teams by more than a quarter (42 teams would be cut in the reported proposal). Additionally, MLB's proposal would reduce the draft to 20 rounds, reduce the number of contracted players in each organization, and alter the structure -- with some affiliates moving up or down in level.
