    So, this got two thirds of the votes, and I want to test run it to see how it might work for future drafts. It will be tightly regulated and a bit restrictive, so I don't actually anticipate many trades, but that's not the point, I just want to see how it functions and what people think of it so that maybe I can come up with something roadworthy for next year. Think of it as like the VAR pilot at the confederations cup.

    PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

    How it works:

    The window is open for one week, from now. Each player can make a maximum of two trades (players, not deals). You may transfer list a maximum of three players that you are interested in trading. You may indicate what positions or type of players you are looking for, but you MAY NOT name specific players you want. Other players can then quote your post in public and offer you specific players from their teams in exchange, these players do not have to be on their transfer list. You can then accept or reject the offer. You may not suggest an alternative player, however if you reject the offer they can come back with an offer of different players. If you agree the deal, both parties must sign off on it in the picks thread. ALL discussion of transfers must take place in public, more general chat is permitted in the SG Facebook group and formal offers should be here. If someone approaches you with an offer via PM or message, you are OBLIGATED to report it and quote the message, they are immediately handed a transfer ban for the duration of the window. You must trade one player for one player or two for two, no uneven trades, and naturally a player can only be traded once.

    ​Remember, this is not FM, players won't get demoralised by being transfer listed, so you can list someone just to see what offers you might get. If you just list your worst subs, you are unlikely to get many offers. You should make transfer listings in the format of my first post, where I will list mine.

    IF I GET ANY SUSPICION OF DODGY DEALING, THE WHOLE WINDOW WILL SLAM SHUT IMMEDIATELY.

    If you don't wish to participate you are of course free to completely sit out this stage of the game.

    ​​​​​​I would welcome any feedback as to these rules, how it is working and whether you like this feature, but make it in the signup thread, not here.

    VOTING WILL START SHORTLY AFTER CLOSE OF TRANSFER WINDOW, GIVING YOU JUST OVER ONE WEEK TO FINALIZE YOUR TEAM SELECTION AND FORMATION AND MAKE YOUR FINALIZED GRAPHIC.

    Transfer Listed: Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling, Thomas Meunier

    For Jesus I am of course only willing to listen to offers involving star players, for sterling I am interested in quality midfield or defensive options and for Meunier I need similar defensive cover.

    Why can't you ask for specific players? That is stupid. I'm in a trade heavy fantasy league, and to make trades work you always have to propose a deal to go anywhere. Just putting players on the transfer list never works

    Listed Bernardo Silva and Emre Can

    I want a superstar right back. Willing to trade both at the same time for a superstar RB and a merely decent attack minded CM/AM. Or just Bernardo for one. But has to be a genuine superstar.

    No thank you. Everyone here knows I think Sterling is overrated.

    I'd only change him for a RB.

    I'm putting all these restrictions in because of your, specifically your, scepticism. The idea is to keep trades neutral. Don't you of all people tell me it should be more open after being the strongest voice against It!

    I don't think this is helpful. If we allow trades, people need to be able to negotiate them. An easier way is to just have a veto system in place for clearly unfair trades.

    Considering all the RB requests, I'll expand my ask to "Similar value RB or LB".

    Be serious. Mane is a 34 million pound Player of the Season for his club, and a Premier League Team of the Season winger. Meunier is a 5 million pound RB, and isn't even a guaranteed starter at his club.

    His club is PSG, just being part of that team is pretty impressive.
