I actually like the rule to be honest. Sort of a leveller rule that allows teams to be more or less equal in terms of ability to get these players as teams to 4-5 MP players might be put off from bidding. Alternatively, there may be more MP players on the transfer list to create room in squads.......................

James Tucker - May 25th 2018 12:45
