    You should beat them both really, they're sitting on about 30 and 15 million respectively.

    Oi, someone bid on Osman already. Current bid 3.8m, ends in 45 mins. Better value than a 17yo respectable anyway.

    Help Please, brain frying!

    My IV FC league is much easier than my III OD league, but seeing as BT has run on OD for the last seven seasons, I see OD as by far the more prestigious competition. In OD I'll be scrapping for a playoff, with the average ratings something like Rem/Sup/Abs - Qual/Prof/Feeb, whereas in FC, if I played my best team most matches, then I'd win it easily., average being about Strong/Comp/Abs - Strong/Comp/Feeb. What I intend to do is play my best team in OD, and scrap for points, whilst playing the reserves and two or three Strong/Sups from the 1st CI in FC. I hope to be able to rotate the 1st XI players on FC duty, depending on their fitness. . Against the best FC teams I'll play a weaker team, and go V.Def on everything, with the outside hope of getting a draw, whilst I might chuck in better players for the games I have a better chance of winning easily, in the hope that I'll wrap them up in a day or two, and save PFL.

    Also have a training dilemma. Tried to pull a Back-up WK, to play in FC, in order to lessen the burden on Noon, but ended up getting what is potentially a very valuable/useful batsman.

    Joey Staton (1562000)
    RH Batsman, RFM Bowler, respectable batting form, respectable bowling form, fresh
    A defensive player with mediocre leadership skills and abysmal experience.
    Plays For: Cymru Gurgitaters
    Nationality: England
    Age: 17 Years Old
    Battrick Rating: 4,495
    Wages: £854 p/w
    Stamina: mediocre(10) Wicket Keeping: feeble(10)
    Batting: respectable(10) Concentration: woeful(5)
    Bowling: worthless Consistency: worthless
    Fielding: feeble

    Option A is to sell for around £2m, and use the funds to buy one or two FC trundlers. Though I quite like the idea of training him into the missing link in my top six. My current trainees are:

    Matthew Akhtar (1282894) (2x Batting)

    Doug Greening (334385) (2x Batting)

    Bill Jeffery (329353) (1x Bowling)

    Joe Noon (444923) (1x Bat, 1x WK)

    Alton Staveley (374819) (1x Batting)
    LH Batsman, LM Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, energetic
    A cautious player with mediocre leadership skills and competent experience.
    Plays For: Cymru Gurgitaters
    Nationality: England
    Age: 24 Years Old
    Battrick Rating: 34,014 (+441)
    Wages: £11,655 p/w

    Bowling: abysmal Consistency: mediocre
    Fielding: feeble

    Jon Wilde (939069) (1x Bowling)
    RH Batsman, RM Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, sublime
    A cautious player with proficient leadership skills and abysmal experience.
    Plays For: Cymru Gurgitaters
    Nationality: New Zealand
    Age: 20 Years Old
    Battrick Rating: 19,132 (+266)
    Wages: £6,356 p/w
    Stamina: mediocre Wicket Keeping: abysmal
    Batting: feeble Concentration: feeble
    Bowling: quality Consistency: respectable
    Fielding: abysmal

    Reckon the sensible thing to do would be to pull Jeffery's net immediately, and give Staton 1x Batting. Then, once Staveley pops to Wond Bat, another five or six weeks, pull his net and give Staton a WK or Fielding, with a view to switching it to a second batting net as soon as he's hit, say comp Conc.

    TEAM STATS:
    Stam: 62 =5.64 (Med)
    Batting: 72 =10.29 (Sup)
    Conc: 58 =8.29 (Prof)
    Bowling: 51 =10.2 (Sup)
    Cons: 41 =8.2 (Prof)
    Fielding: 61 =5.55 )Med)


    @Mahindinho, Aquantra CC are in my OD league this season. At their best, they have similar batting ratings to me, Wond/Resp, but their bowling is much better, Rem/Sup. I'm hoping to do them on a H+F in our league match. But somewhat ominously for you, they appear to be resting quite a lot of players for the BT20, as their batting is about two levels down, and their bowling is dog dirt.

    Later, Trev

    Deadline: 22/09/2007 15:35 	Fielding: 	proficient
    Thought about making a bid, but decided he wouldn't be good enough.

    Also, i will have a free Stamina net in 2 or so weeks, and i'm thinking about buying this guy. (current bid 700k, how high should i go?)

    He's a better than my current no.7, and would definetly give me a bit more flexibility should i need to rest someone against the easybeats in my FC & OD leagues.

    Thoughts?

    Can I have some thoughts from people?:

    Bardle on V.Attacking in FC - good, or bad?

    Adam's input would be especially valued
    Or something.

    End of Over 9: 24-9, runrate=2.67
    Dillon 1-0-1-2
    Cash* 6 (5 balls)
    Davis 0 (2 balls)

    Last Wicket: Singh lali c. Tynan b. Dillon 0 (FOW: 24/9)



    Oh and I'd think that sensational will go for around 8m, not worth that, but that's about the mark I can see people bidding.


    Edit: 25 all out in 10 overs
