FISO "First Draft III" League

Welcome to the league thread for the FISO First Draft III league. The original founders of this league took part in the inaugural FISO Draft FPL test on 21st July 2017 (the night that FPL Draft officially opened).

The Draft will take place on Monday 15th July at 21:30


Mav3rick has once again kicked off a voluntary charity prize fund for the top 3 (50%, 30%, 20%).
See the posts below for details.

Charity Prize Fund is £50 - Sponsored by Mav3rick.
1st Prize- £25
2nd Prize - £15
3rd Prize - £10

Nominated Charities

Ardrageen

I'm not sure if this is strictly necessary as there are no entry fees, nobody actually wins anything and nobody is holding anyone else's cash, but just in case, here is the standard disclaimer. Which I interpret in this case as: 'If your nominated charity doesn't get all of its money then it's not FISO's fault.'

Will be interesting with such an early draft, in terms of late moves & transfers. Should make the waivers interesting certainly! Thanks to TT as always for organising everything.

Also, I'll do the the same deal as last year with regards to a charity payout for the winners, so if you want to nominate your chosen charity then I'll personally pay out prizes to the top three's nominated charities in the following proportions:

1st - £25
2nd - £15
3rd - £10

Any other donations are of course welcome, but it's not a requirement of taking part.

My nominated charity will be St Catherine's Hospice.

Thanks for your generosity once again Mav3rick.

If everyone wants to nominate their charities I'll include them in the OP.

In other news, Stemania has made a late dash along the platform to catch the First Draft Express, so we are up to 9 teams now.

Well, we will be up to 9 teams once robot joins the league. :hint: :wink:

I hope everything works ok for the draft later.
I was just trying to set up my watchlist, but I had to abandon it as the page kept constantly reloading. :roll:

That's kind of a relief.
I was beginning to think it was just me. :lol:

I just tried a mock draft, and even though I had the same problem when setting up the watchlist, it all worked fine once the draft started. So I'm hoping we'll be ok.

Lets see how tonight's draft goes. I've done no prep, but will be trying to avoid Giroud this time... Or will I...

Is everyone going to be present?

Not sure what to make of that, I only had the one panic pick (Chamberlain) when my planned pick got snapped up right before my turn (looking at you Stem :evil:) but otherwise most of the picks were broadly ones I was ok with. Double Chelsea defence was a bit of a surprise for me but all the LIV and MCY defenders had gone by the time I got there. I think it's the first draft I've done where I picked up three strikers I'm happy with though.

Decided to be pretty punty with my last three defensive picks, but fairly conservative with the midfield picks.

I got

Fabianski, Patricio
Doherty, Rudiger, Alderweireld, Lindelof, Dunk
Pogba, Felipe Anderson, Willian, Martial, McNeil
Aguero, Vardy, Jota

Bit miffed about Willian as genuinely wanted Tielemans/Fraser, but screen broke. I guess Willian was top of the watchlist. :P

Much happier than last year (so long as Alder, Pogba and Willian stay in the PL, Rudiger is fit, Martial plays, and Dunk moves to Leicester :lol:)

The teams all look quite even, GW1 waivers will be interesting!

I got

Lloris Leno
Digne Chilwell Trippier Zinchenko Bertrand
Sterling Sigurdsson Maddison Fraser Sanchez
Wilson Barnes Che Adams

Reasonably happy. Like my midfield, less happy with my forwards and no Liverpool coverage.

Out of 135 picks no one takes :shock: zil!

8th pick so decided to take a different approach and go defence first :!:

Not the best most balanced team i've ever had.

Time will tell.
