The date of birth draft!

Easy enough to explain. With each payer you pick, their date of birth has to be more recent than your previous pick. So your first pick is Pele (23rd October 1940)? Your next player has to have been born after that date. One day later, one month later, 40 years later....as long as it's later!

Let's see who can't hold their nerve....

    Time Limit

    4 hour limit for you to make your pick. If you miss your window on more than 1 occasion, you are out of the draft.

    Please, please, please read this next bit.

    If you are going to be busy and think you may not make your window to pick a player, PM someone with your player and a backup player!!

    Then we wont have to wait 4 hours to move on with the draft.

    As always, it's a snake draft. We start from the top and work our way down. The player at the bottom has a double pick and then we work our way back up. The order is as follows...


    Dairee - Johan Cruyff (1947)

    Claret - Pele (1940)

    xGeorgeSmithx - Diego Maradona (1960)

    Mik - Franz Beckenbauer (1945)

    jamle1874 - Lev Yashin (1929)

    SC1967 - Alfredo di Stefano (1926)

    Selgarr - Lothar Matthaus (1961)

    MarioMonk

    Lisbon67 - Ferenc Puskas (1927)

    Bhoy - Garrincha (1933)

    Im glad we've got a dirty orange b*stard draft on the go, surprised Nacho Novo wasn't first pick :D

    Seriously though, did Mario say he was playing this one?

    Have to say, I did consider it..

    By the way, I PM'd MarioMonk earlier asking if he wants in. He's been away working the past week so he might still be away.

    Think we'll skip over him just now and if he gets back in touch later he can catch up.

    A poor excuse imo. Managed a double pick last Thursday already half cut waiting in the queue for the Garage.
