Charl's been put on there quite a bit recently.

Glad there's a bit more movement, I've been looking for a bowler for the last couple of weeks

Being lazy here, but what are their wages?

Wages are the key factor in deciding what is affordable.

Gobern looks a good bet to me...

Edit - In fact, he'd be excatly what I was looking for, if only I had another 3m in the bank....

Gobern is the one I was thinking too, not sure if I'll have the money though, really out the loop for transfer prices, especially with all-rounders.

I reckon he's 10m+, although with so many going on the market in a short space of time, you might pick up a bargain, as there might not be that many people about with the cash at this time of the season...

I paid 13m for Lindop about 4 weeks ago...

Leighton Lindop (1269237) Leighton is a LH Batsman and LM Bowler. He is a defensive player with mediocre leadership skills and remarkable experience.

He currently has superb batting form, strong bowling form and lively fitness.

I can afford to wait and see, as Gobern ends after Friday's game, leaving me a week to still find a new player before serious action starts again due to me throwing my cup game and BT20. Will see if a bargain can be had. If not, I'll lower my sights to a batsman only.

Lindop looks some player. Is he performing well for you?

Schoeman will be going on the market tomorrow, as he's now my weakest bowler and only my 5th strongest batter. Should get somewhere around 7m for him, giving me 11m to find a replacement.

Carl Schoeman (1063884) Carl is a LH Batsman and RF Bowler. He is an attacking player with mediocre leadership skills and wonderful experience.

He currently has mediocre batting form, strong bowling form and sublime fitness.

You lot are braver than me using the transfer market! I've bought the likes of Browne, Zamora, Guy, Sookram but all at a very young age (17 or 18) and trained them up to their current standard. Only ever spent 33 million and 20 million of that was for Cook and Johnson! I just feel you can pay too much for players and without wishing to sound like Andee, prefer developing the younger players.

Today i hit 3000 members and sit 95th in England!! However, having contacted Sky Blues, he's playing his full strength team against me this week and then a full second team next week so 22 points are guaranteed next week but i think im going to try and eek out some batting points and perhaps a bowling point or two as every point is crucial. Im only 4 clear of 2nd so things will make a bit more sense to me in 2 weeks time on the FC format. Bit of a bugger as he'd lost his last 2 FC games on purpose but suspected he'd want to win once out of the two.

Decisions, decisions, decisions!

With the member numbers shooting up (3,217 now) and consequent increased gates I've noticed I'm making money more easily which makes me think I can probably afford another £100k pw of wages if I need to. So will be looking to get myself a miraculous bowler at some stage to go alongside the four all rounders. I have over £5m in the bank and have McGee (wonderful/masterful but 30yo), Oates (17, proficient batting, respectable bowling) and Hartburn (superb bowling) to sell. Should give me a reasonable pot to spend when the time comes.

Once I've done that, most of my nets will then be used for investment rather than team development. It takes so long to bring a player to first team standard now and I think the profits I've taking say a Week 5 respectable 17yo, training on a single net and selling at strong or superb are pretty good. If I can pick up 5 of those every two seasons I'm figuring I can make enough to sustain a higher wage bill and make improvements to my team as and when necessary.

We shall see......

What he said

I've made most of my transfers this season on the back of the 4m I got for my 18yo SL trainee. I've then just improved the worst bowler / batter each time.

Got a bid of 6.5m on Schoeman, so we've got 10.5m in the bank. I've bid 9.72m on this guy, be happy to get him.

Raymond Burns (950024) Raymond is a LH Batsman and LFM Bowler. He is a defensive player with woeful leadership skills and masterful experience.

He currently has strong batting form, strong bowling form and energetic fitness.

Big price for Schoeman IMO. Well done. Makes me even happier I paid slightly more for sensational batting exquisite bowling the other week.
