Just a simple & long game.
Pick a young player who is relatively unknown/unproven and hope he makes it big before any other player listed in this thread.
You cannot pick a player already picked by other poster.
You can pick only one player per draft.
There will be scheduled draft every quarter(I will use Calendar model so Q1:Jan-Mar Q2:Apr-Jun, Q3:Jul-Sep, Q4:Oct-Dec)
Q3 2016 : Ongoing
Q4 2016: 15th Oct
Q1 2017: 15th Jan
Q2 2017: 15th May
Q3 2017: 15th Aug
and so on.
15th Jan because that’s when mid season break for leagues like Bundesliga ends & their preseason gives good insight for youngsters they may play in second half of season.
The reason I picked May instead of Apr is because clubs play youngsters at tail end of season.
The reason I picked Aug instead of Jun, so you can scout during preseason.
Q3 2016 has not followed below rules on strict basis.
- Any player picked from Top 15 European leagues should have no more than 10games(or 900mins) under his belt.
- Brazil & Argentinian League players should have no more than 20games(or 1800mins)
- Players picked from other leagues can have no more than 40games(or 3600mins). If however he has played from his National team or in CL/EL/Copa Libertadores/Tournaments of similar stature
, the cut off will reduce to 20games(or 1800mins)
- If a player has moved leagues, then we will improvise & use pro rata to decide if he is eligible.
Definition of Worldclass is vague, so I need your suggestions as to how we will decide which player made it big & who is a statistical delusion; be it a poll or FM/FIFA rankings.
