    Not 100% confident on who to pick at number 2. Usually I'm further down the draft meaning it becomes easier to pick an elite star. I'm literally torn between 4 players. The other three won't survive the first round that's for sure.

    I was gonna pick Benteke until I saw by some travesty that he is no longer a midfielder, so I'm hoping to get Matic.

    Apologies for the delay I was under the impression the draft wasn't for a week yet.

    Can we seriously not draft morata, he has just been confirmed and you explicitly said Saturday was the start date. I don't see an issue with it as it's not as if any of you top 3 would have taken him anyway?

    The answer is always going to be no. Regardless of Morata being confirmed now it came after the deadline. Nobody would be clamouring for him if he wasn't a top tier player unlike players like Manquillo.

    The issue is that Nash confirmed Saturday as a start day. And if it was Ronaldo or Messi in the process of a medical there is no way he would've jumped the gun.

    I know what Nash did. It's Nash. But we can't bend rules just because certain players are signed into the pool. We've also lost Robertson and Hernandez so far to the supp as well as probably Danilo, Keita, Mendy and Perisic among others.

    Everybody signed before Saturday should be available, is the crux of it.

    Morata is a no go. If he's drafted by a team, that Team loses their pick for that round:

    Sorry but falcao as the same. My word on when the draft opens means nothing. Sorry Simmo、 thats just the way it is.

    I'm not gunna sit about just on the basis of transfer rumours I had to open it at some stage

    I still reckon your draft will beat us all but you'll kill it on trades

    Some stage being when you said you were going to open it.

    As I said, if Messi was in London for a medical you'd have waited.

    Falcao signed on September 1st and we started drafting on July 30th that year, so I don't really know what you're on about.

    Given that you quite clearly stated the draft was starting on Saturday, there is no logical reason why anybody signed today should be off limits. And if you, Syko or Dmac genuinely would've taken Morata already then go ahead and change your pick, I have no issue with that.

    It just doesn't sit right that you are #1 and started early when everybody knew Morata was likely to sign today. Incidentally, I don't actually think you started early with an ulterior motive in mind, but it doesn't make it any less unfair.

    And as I said, if you thought somebody with #1 potential was on the verge, there is no way you'd have started.
