    Here we go again, the greatest review show in the world

    Seriously though, this thread is just opinions and its made to get people talking, the more interest we can get the better people will be at keeping up with picks

    Round 1

    Gazza - Lionel Messi
    Lukic - Cristiano Ronaldo
    Samuel Vimes - Iniesta
    Tkp - Xavi
    Baxter - Fabregas
    Jabba - Aguero
    Benny - Vidic
    Mariner - RVP
    Speirz - Falcao
    Cabinet96 - Ibrahimovic
    Mouse - Suarez
    McGrath - Rooney
    BigGuns - Bale
    Cevno - Mata
    Eddie - Lampard
    Eds - Hazard
    Zohaib , Ribery
    Arheiner - David Silva
    Weeman27bob - Thiago Silva
    GOAT - Ozil
    Frizzed - Cavani

    Goalkeepers : 0
    Defenders : 2
    Midfielders : 11
    Strikers: : 8

    Best: Messaldo

    Can't split them, not one bit, both by far the best players in the world. Both the ultimate players to build teams around, variation in ability, versatility and just class.

    Worst: Ribery

    Obviously when you're talking about the first round, you don't have bad players, and in that sense it's hard to give out a "worst" pick. The only think this comes down to is I looked at a couple of players who were all potentials and I thought, who is the one least likely to really fight for something when needed, whose going to work hard and gel into the team.

    Huge fan

    I could have predicted exactly how the draft would go

    1-2 Mesnaldo
    3-5 Barca Spine
    6-21 Attacking third players with very few key player backs
  5. Benny BS Read

    Agree with much of that.

    I struggled with my first pick. I picked Vidic because Mesaldo and the barca spine got taken before I could nab one and I felt I was better served taking IMO the best CB in the game today who provides a quality leadership option also.
  6. Eds E Ames

    Gun stuff. Would have Messi as best pick, Vidic for worst pick personally. Harsh on Benny but as you say, hard to pick one in the first round. Don't think he's near the best CB in the world, tbh.

    Good read, more to come.
  8. Baxter MJ Deane

    Yeah, Vidic poor when you look at the two players picked next...
  9. Verigoat S Verigotta

    Ye, those two other CB's that were picked directly after him do show poor judgement

    Theres nothing wrong with using a first round pick to get potentially the best in the world at a specific position

    You could easily argue Fabregas isn't as good as Aguero, RVP or Falcao, should that be a bad pick as well?
  10. Eds E Ames

    I'm not sure if this is directed at me or not?
  11. Verigoat S Verigotta


    I just disagree that hes not one of the top couple in the world, but im not going to have a go at you for your difference in that opinion
  12. Eds E Ames

    Top couple maybe. But Benny could have waited until Round 2, and got another CB also in the top couple whilst getting RVP/Falcao instead of whoever he ended up getting R2.
  13. Baxter MJ Deane

    I'm surprised you didn't try and argue that tbh. But I don't think any of the other players picked in R1 are necessarily directly comparable to Fabregas.
    I picked him rather than Falcao/RVP because of my long-term draft plan. I could play one of 20 people upfront but I wanted Cesc as my link man.
  14. Verigoat S Verigotta

    I think theres a lot less real elite level CB's around than strikers

    If he would of used his 2nd round on a top striker instead of a keeper I think he could of done better than letting Vidic potentially go. That didn't end up coming to pass anyway

    But even now with that in mind, would I rather have Vidic or Ribery in my team?

    Vidic for sure

    I just thought you wouldn't rate it as a pick :confused:

    Round two write up goat?
  18. Verigoat S Verigotta

    Round 2

    Frizzed - Gotze
    Goat - Neymar
    Weeman27bob - Lahm
    Arheiner - Xabi Alonso
    Zohaib - Robben
    Eds - Pirlo
    Eddie - Ramos
    Cenvo - Schweinsteiger
    BigGuns - Dzeko
    McGrath - Pique
    Mouse - Gerrard
    Cabinet96 - Busquets
    Speirz - Yaya Toure
    Mariner - Kompany
    Benny - Casillias
    Jabba - Benzema
    Baxter - De Rossi
    TKP - Higuain
    Samuel Vimes - Neuer
    Lukic - Lucas Moura
    Gazza - Thomas Muller

    Goalkeepers - 2
    Defenders - 4
    Midfielders - 11
    Attackers - 4

    Best: Yaya Toure - To get Yaya half way through the 2nd round is a great bit of business. The best box to box midfielder in the world. He is a teams entire spine, just on his own. Strength and engine of a tractor.

    Worst : Edin Dzeko - There was more than one contender for worst, which is surprising given the round that we're in. Ultimatley the ball drops with Dzeko. To look at every single player that was done after Dzeko and then back at him, it brings tears to my eyes. Even if you wanted that specific type of striker, not just striker in general, there are better target men esque strikers around still.

    Honourable mention to the keeper selections in round two even though you could of probably held it another round or so. But they're both the top level keepers so they're not ever going to get worst picks
