Free for All Episode 3 | Squad Replenishment | @CornishZak

Happy hump day! Here’s Zak with the latest from free transfer town – if you’re interested in downloading the database you can do so from the link in last weeks blog.

Welcome back to Free for All, bargain hunters.

Our Doncaster side are battling in division 3 as our fax machine is constantly under siege by clubs trying to poach our players.

We lose no less than four more players in the break since we last spoke; Iain Dowie (Torquay, £250k), Wayne Carlisle (Huddersfield £250k), Nicky Culkin (Millwall, £250k) and Danny Hall (Charlton, £300k) all depart, leaving a somewhat depleted squad once again.

I hastily recruit three more bodies, ex-Man Utd younger Phil Whittam, ex-Liverpool youngster Sean Friars and former Crewe youngster Kevin Street.

Happy hump day! Here’s Zak with the latest from a world of freebies – the database download is at the end of this post.

Hello! Welcome back to Free for All. A quick recap for those joining for the first time. There are 5202 players available on a free transfer, released from every playable English team, (plus some of the World’s best players and ex-retirees). All teams are starting from scratch building their squads.

You join the action as my Doncaster Rovers team – relegated from the football league in real-life 1997-98 – are battling to keep hold of players and find ourselves top-half after 5 games.

This is how we lined up for our previous match – a 2-1 win at Mansfield.

Happy hump day! We have a debutant today as Zak makes his debut though you might know his work from our sister site CM0102Blogs. He’s beenna busy boy in the editor and I thik you’ll like the outcome…

Hello! Welcome to my first post within the CM9798 multiverse. It’s great to finally be a part of Dave’s #blogsquad proper!

Right, Free for All. What’s it all about?

I have spent a fair few hours in Editor exile and released EVERY PLAYER in the English four-league pyramid from their contract, making them available on a free transfer. That’s right, from David Beckham in the Premiership down to Trevor Benjamin in Division Three – all released and available on a free. And, we’re not stopping there. I also thought it would be fun to release 100 or so of the World’s best, most expensive and more well-known players. After some late night Tuesday Club drinks, I also coaxed a few aged stars out of retirement; Robson, Shilton, Regis, Baresi, and even Chris Kamara. 5202 players in all.
