    Run The Window - Summer 2014

    I've been thinking about starting a new game based on Cox's baseball idea a few years ago.

    How It Works

    Basically, you take control of a Premier League club's transfer policy, building a squad that you think will perform best in the coming 2014-2015. You pick your team, first come first serve, I will allocate the transfer budgets (which everyone will no doubt disagree with but I'll try and base it on stuff projected in the papers, predictions, any deals done so far, and other sources), and act as any foreign clubs you may require for any player prices, as I won't be controlling a team. If you want to buy a premiership player than you can discuss with that club's representative in the thread. Once again, I'll act as buyers and sellers for the other clubs that don't get selected.

    Say PS was Southampton and CGS was Man United. CGS may post to The Probable Eventual Winner "How much for Luke Shaw" or PM him or rep him or VM or whatever (I'd prefer posts because we can discuss), PS would be like "30 million at least", which CGS wouldn't pay because Luke Shaw is so clearly not a 30 million pound player. But PS still wants to sell so he comes to me who's repping Chelsea just for buying and selling purposes and tries for 30 but he can't get it because Luke Shaw still isn't worth that much.

    It's basically an interactive transfers only football manager game.

    Quite simple, the winner will be voted on by the members of the competition, I believe it'll be a fair vote but Crocker will still try to fucking fix it the bastard.

    The Transfer Budgets

    Arsenal: £65 million
    Aston Villa: £8 million
    Chelsea: £80 million
    Crystal Palace: £8 million
    Everton: £20 million
    Hull: £6 million
    Liverpool: £50 million -
    Man City: £80 million
    Man United: £60 million
    Newcastle: £40 million
    Southampton: £60 million
    Stoke: £8 million
    Sunderland: £12 million
    Swansea: £15 million
    Tottenham: £50 million
    West Brom: £10 million
    West Ham: £20 million

    Now don't be stupid, I'm not having Spurs going in for Xavi or something I'll just flat reject any enquiry where I deem the player would not move. Everything is discussionable, and I have been known to be convinced several times. Ask Shock.

    Entrants List

    Man City: £80 million - Simmo
    INS
    OUTS

    Man United: £80 million - Order
    INS
    OUTS

    Arsenal: £65 million - Ed
    INS
    OUTS

    Liverpool: £45million - Crocker
    INS
    OUTS


    Southampton: £60 million - Shock
    INS
    OUTS


    Chelsea: £80 million - Rasputin
    INS
    OUTS

    Tottenham: £50 million - CGS
    INS
    OUTS

    Aston Villa: £8 million - Grapes
    INS
    OUTS

    Everton: £20 million - Sykotic
    INS
    OUTS

    West Ham: £20 million - Jon Snow
    INS
    OUTS


    Cheers boys, Entrants are open so as soon as you get your team, you may have to wait for a team to be picked in order to get a player, but dems the breaks. People can join in whenever they wish, 1 person per team - first come first serve. I'll call a cease on the 1st of August. 2 weeks before the season starts so I can do the Fantrax draft.

    Just post below and let's get cracking!

    Did you make this entire concept just to repeatedly insult Luke Shaw then?

    And he scores goals...!

    Are the winners decided by the best team or the team that has the best transfer window?

    I'll take Southampton

    Simmo, £1m for Milner?

    I will also offer a contract to free agent Ashley Cole (assuming he doesn't have a club currently).

    I will listen to offers for Benteke.
