    Probably get over 5m for Marshall if he had those skills now, as a 19yo presumbly it would go down a bit. Not really worth getting his stamina up a level unless he's close to a pop, won't affect his value much. The other guy will get a few hundred thousand if you're lucky.

    Good to hear that -- I generally lay off stamina training until a player's older, anyway.

    Having a look at the market, I'd be lucky to get 500k for Hayward...so may as well not bother as he's a useful lower order bat.

    So...probably 4M for Marshall plus 2M in loose change...6M gets an older Remark/Wonderful I suppose. Or I could keep him and use my three free training slots for skill trading, with a view towards buying a 10M player towards season's end. Tempting...

    Got a bit of cash to throw at someone and I need a back up keeper with respectable primaries. Anybody with an offer?

    Poor season for us this one. Got sent back to VI in FC and after winning my V league last season, we could only manage to finish 3rd this season.

    Anyone with an attacking/destructive all-rounder to sell hit me up. Have 16m to spend.

    May I suggest a career in comedy? You're hilarious.

    IV -> III promotion playoff today against GM-Beardsy's team. If he puts out a full strength side I'm stuffed, but if he puts out the side he's been using in OD this season, I've got a glimmer of a chance. Oleary still pretty knackered, though; my long run in the CW cup has cost me a bit at the end of the season.

    Battle of the Beards?

    I've got a relegation play-off against a decent enough side (whose name I can't remember!), but one that shouldn't be able to hurt me. Dusty pitch, playing two spinners, sunny day (although I've not checked this morning), GFI.

    Should be comfortable enough, but those are famous last words!

    A regular beard-off indeed. He's put out a first XI, and I'm batting. I don't have a chance. Can't believe I missed out on autopromotion by one run. So bitter.

    Best o' luck in yours - I won't jinx it by making a prediction, my record is terrible...

    ONE RUN? OUCH!

    UPDATE 1
    McGregor started the match with a boundary, but there haven't been too many since. 13/0 after 3. As there aren't any truly scary bowlers out there, I'm trying Sandwith out at #2. Dusty pitch, sunny day.

    UPDATE 2
    Well, that's not worked! 47/1 after 10, with McGregor going cheaply...then Sandwith and Reed both out in the space of three balls.
    47/3...Oh bugger!
    Only Fishy and the three Qual/Superbs between me and Div IV right now.

    UPDATE 3
    Well, Fishy decided to throw his bat around...before getting out for a madcap 39.
    124/4 after 22 overs now, one recognised batsman to come in, and I'm in serious trouble.
