Credit as ever to John Furlong for creating the game and advising and Stephen Davies for pulling in the fees and money. Josh Sexton in the office too and Sam May who did me a list of names.

Rules are as follows:

92m to spend plus anything you get in (this allows for seepage in terms of agent fees and so on). However you also need to balance the wage bill.

You can make a case for one player beyond that if you see fit to do so. It has to be a very strong case.

It needs to be a plausible amount of work we can achieve in a summer in terms of both ins and outs. It has to feel like we can achieve all of this with our resource of time. Added to this, the manager wants to have his players in for pre-season. Unless it is an extreme circumstance, we are not at home to signing a player after the 15th July. Therefore we have to be able to get these deals done. Bear that in mind. How much effort would, for instance, Sanchez be?

The wage a player receives has been broken into six categories with the current breakdown of where Liverpool’s resources are placed on there.

To this you can add the equivalent of two more super highs, two more highs and one more medium.

You may feel that one or two of Liverpool’s current crop are being under-paid and you might want to tie them down with boosts using this money this summer. You cannot retain Emre Can’s services without agreeing a new deal with a pay increase.

Any players sold their wage comes into the shake-up for new players coming with the exception of those who have been on loan. Any of those you keep, you actually have to add their wages to your budget. Any you decide to loan and risk the manager’s wrath, you get their wages.

The conversation rate is as follows:

2 Super Highs = 1 Mega
2 Highs = 1 Super High
2 Mediums = 1 High
2 Lows = 1 Medium
2 Junior = 1 Low

That clear? Probably not but let’s go…
