Gameweek 1 & Season 6 blind auction

How long are you supposed to leave it until you take the league table seriously? 7 games into the season? 6 games? 5?

Considering the Premier League has 38 games in the season, if we are to take the table seriously after 7 games that’s 18.42% of the way into the season. So for ESMS, by my maths, that means that some teams need to start absolutely bricking it from the 59th minute of the next game onwards. Bring on your impact subs on the 58th!

Congratulations and adulation to Opulent Knack and Archway Athletic, who are leading the way (through the arch?) in Division One after gameweek one. In Division Two, Aguerissimo FC, Clapped Out FC and Kay FC are occupying the top three promotion spots, with two managers delighted by this and one furious because they intend to “tank” the season.

The next league games will take place on Wednesday night, which will be their regular home for most of the rest of the season.

Season Six blind auction

Here’s the real reason you clicked on this page. To see who is in this season’s blind auction.

As ever, the intention isn’t always to drop the world’s best player in every single auction. They might get sprinkled on one auction every few seasons. Not every position has a fantastic player – let’s save something for the live auction. However we should see transfer activity hot up around one or two of the players…

If you want to bid for any of these players then email me before 7.30pm (UK) on Monday 23rd August. You can only submit one bid, i.e. you can’t keep emailing me to change it, and you can only bid for one player so pick your player and your bid wisely!

I’ll do the big reveal on Tuesday night (because I think I’ll be on a plane on Monday, if the Covid Gods will allow it).

When researching this list I was delighted to learn that Sammy Kuffour finally won the Champions League in 2001. I feel so happy for him.

Mike
