haha I seem to recall that my 2nd year in they brought the transfer round "back" in limited form after a two(?) year hiatus. Since then, other than these past (two?) years, I feel like there was some type of transfer program every year (except one?), but wouldn't swear to it (the years do start to blend together).

I agree that since I have been...See More

IsItFriday? We're in basic agreement.

Can someone verify my memory, as yes, they years do blend together.

I am confident there were no transfer rounds in

2013 2014 2019 2020

That's fully 50% of the past eight years. Did I miss a year? Was another transfer round also postponed/canceled/eliminated? Are there mistakes on my lis...See More
