As a new and proud member of Elite I am hereby officially opening the thread for Season 27 as 26 is as good as over.

So do y'all have a pre-season show or something like that here?

I am losing 10 players this rollover. 2 are gone already and 8 will stay until the IECC final on Sunday morning. More for sentimental reasons than for their impact as IECC is in power mode.

However most of the positions will be filled for next season thanks to two recruitments in OL and last season backups being kind of ready to becoming starters.

I do expect to lose 1 to 3 overall rating points.

18 of my players will be in their 30's next season so I expect also a lot of retirement announcements.

In the league I target a 8-8 record which is ambitious considering I never defeated MSS and Leeds.

I hope a good run in the Supercup after falling to MSS in round 2 this season and why not a decent one as well for my comeback in the CoC.

Good luck everybody!

I had 58 (!!) players out of contract so after I finished with that my wage bill has been more than doubled (4.6mill)!

As I always suck at keeping at training I have a few players that are really expensive due to them being maxed in one skill so in the S27 part of the off season I'll be looking closely who I will (try to) sell or perhaps even fire to reduce cost.

I will get relegated and I'll put up a fight but I am using this season to focus on other aspects of the game that I've been neglecting.

In other news I also realised that I have 21 draft players and 6 from my youth academy which feels like a pleasing ratio (38%) home grown players.

I'm at ~90% home grown players

Damn....respect for that man.

I also know there is one team that has never ever bought even one player so are full 100% home grown but I can't remember who it was now.

I have to replace 5 Starters including DE1 and CB1, but this is business as usual

Very eager to get know the retirees next season, which out of division opponents I need to face and the SC group

Get ready for Season 27

I am losing the all time elite leading passer and the all time elite league rusher. Plus a 50/50 DE. I have their replacements but how do replace guys like that.

At least at QB your replacement is very skilled and you will probably give up fewer sacks

No retirees here. I guess I might have a maximum of 5 at the end of the starting season.

30 home grown players in a roster of 69. I will not be surprised to learn that my team is among the youngest and cheapest in the league :

Avg Age Seniors: 24.3
Weekly wages Players $ 2,293,151
Weekly wages Coaches $ 765,052
