All players will be grouped in the player pool, with an associated price. Any bid for a player must be in denominations of £100,000 and must be for at least 20% of the published price for that player. See closed bids, below.
If you sell a player back to the pool you'll get 50% of the purchase price, rounded up to the nearest £100,000.
Transfers can take place between clubs provided any combined package is at least 50% of the deal coming the other way. For example you cannot swap a £2m published price player with a £10m published price player (you'd have to supplement it with cash or another player) but you can swap a £5m player with a £10m player.
Squad rotation. If you do not use a player for 4 consecutive Saturdays he will be placed on the transfer market. One week from that date any other manager who meets the price you purchased the player for will be able to buy them from you, whether you like it or not. If there is more than one bid, the highest bidder will get the player, or if those bids are the same then the first bid in will get the player. If there are no bids, the player will stay on the transfer market until they are played in the team or until a bid is received.
When you want to bid for a player you send an e-mail to email@example.com In the subject title just put "Closed Bid for A.Player" and only in the body of the e-mail should you put the amount bid. This is so the administrators do not gain an advantage (you have to trust us here, but random inspections do take place). Once notified, the closed bid will be posted on the transfers page and everyone else will then have one week to counter the bid. Highest bidder wins, in the event of a tie then the first bidder gets the player.
