LIVE DRAFT THREAD 17/18 - Start 10pm SUNDAY 30th

Thu Jul 27, 2017 8:56 pm

OK so here is where the draft will take place...now on SUNDAY

Also - if for any reason more than 1 manager dosent show up or hasn't left me a list, I may decide to postpone the draft - (probably until Sunday night)

For those not familiar with drafts, this is how it works. Here's an example with 10 managers A B C D E F G H I J and how they acquire their first 4 players.

First a draft order is determined. For the example I will assume that Player A is 1st pick and Player J is last pick, just to keep it simple.

The Draft order follows a "snake" pattern like this: ( the letters represent each manager and the numbers represent the pick order).

A --- 1 --- 20 --- 21 --- 40
B --- 2 --- 19 --- 22 --- 39
C --- 3 --- 18 --- 23 --- 38
D --- 4 --- 17 --- 24 --- 37
E --- 5 --- 16 --- 25 --- 36
F --- 6 --- 15 --- 26 --- 35
G --- 7 --- 14 --- 27 --- 34
H --- 8 --- 13 --- 28 --- 33
I --- 9 --- 12 --- 29 --- 32
J --- 10 --- 11 --- 30 --- 31

It may look at first glance that A has an advantage in having first pick, but remember A's 2nd pick isnt until the 20th pick of the draft. He will see 18 other top rank players disappear off his "wish list" before he gets to pick again. In contrast J gets 2 picks of the "top 11 players" and also his 4th pick should (in theory) be the 31st best player in the league, whereas A's 4th pick should (in theory) be the 40th best player.

I had an idea this might happen...not heard from Marcus, Martin or Brent at all lately (appreciate its hard for Brent but he should've left a list)

Will give it 10-15 mins then may have to postpone till Sunday (a weekend day might be better anyway)..

I've already explained about there being no great advantage in an early pick - its not like theres a Messi orRonaldo in the PL who's miles ahead of everyone else.

Proof?

Top points scorer last season -Sanchez - was a 13th pick
2nd Kane was a 7th pick
3rd Lukaku was 27th pick
4th Alli was a 38th pick!
5th Costa was 6th pick
6th Eriksen was 33rd pick
7th Cahill wasn't even picked up in the draft!

Need I go on?


By contrast the top 4 draft picks were:
Zlatan - ranked 10th in points totals
Aguero - ranked 17th
Mane 24th
Rooney - nowhere!


I hope this has put everyone's mind at rest about this, as I recall having the same discussion 12 months ago! :P
