Hello managers, I know the season may have only just finished but I am already getting withdrawal symptoms from the world of football.
With that in mind I was wondering if anyone wanted to do this again next season?
Comment on this article if you are interested and also if you have any ideas on how to make improvements.
The bone of contention has always been transfers, it became apparent that the person casting the first bid was always at a disadvantage as the later bidders could guess at how much they could spend and the first player would have no time to react. One idea I had for next season is that instead of bidding for a player you simply register an interest in a player. That would appear on the site saying that someone (I wouldn’t know who bid) wants a player, it closes tonight at 8pm etc. That way the later bidders wouldn’t know who the first bidder was so they wouldn’t know what to do to gazump them.
Another idea would be that you bid for a player (and only I would know who had bid) and I simply post that a bid has been lodged for a player, obviously that outs me at an advantage, but my final places in the past three competitions pretty much demonstrate that I don’t take advantage (maybe that means I’m rubbish at this 😦 )
So I’d be interested in your feedback about what we can do to make it better for next season.
