    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    This is much tougher than the previous round.

    So many crappy players on show, but I don't want to spend a relative fortune on a merely 'palatable' player just to avoid a non-entity. No offence to Aubrey. Getting the bid about right will be really tricky.

    For some reason I thought i had much more time. Don't know what I was thinking.

    Going to be quite a challenge to make any sort of reasonable team now. My budget is shot

    That's a shame Blakus. I was looking forward to seeing what kind of competitive team you'd come up with

    Especially when 15 million divided by 12 is only 1.25 million to begin with.

    I felt poor before I started the game and still do.

    Money saving round. Don't think anyone will end up with mostly good selections. Playing the odds.
