    Think the Turk is up now.

    His pick is

    Davor Suker

    Right after his compatriots have beaten Germany Cim Bom picks possibly the greatest Hrvat player of all time. Without a doubt one of the most graceful players of all time.

    Winner of the Golden Boot in the '98 World Cup, and led the Croatians to the World Cup Semi Finals in that tournament.

    Apologies to the Turk, but I can't get Suker's stats up in a readable way.

    Pick 1

    Ernst Happel - Mgr

    Happel went on to become one of the greatest coaches of all time. He won the league title in four different countries. He also took two different clubs to gold in the European Champions' Cup (now the UEFA Champions League) and Holland to second place in the 1978 World Cup. His first club was ADO Den Haag in 1962, with whom he won the Dutch Cup in 1968. After Den Haag he coached Feyenoord, with whom he won the Dutch championship in 1971, as well as the European Cup and the Intercontinental Cup in 1970.

    At the 1978 FIFA World Cup in Argentina, Happel was coach of the Dutch national team and reached the final against the Argentine national team. Always a man of few words, Happel's pre-match pep talk is said to have consisted of just one sentence: "Gentlemen, two points."

    FINAL PICK FOR FC BACON

    Ubaldo Fillol - GK

    He took part of 1974, 1978 (where he won the championship with his team and was voted Best Goalkeeper) and 1982 World Cups representing his country. He played in the South American qualifiers for the 1986 World Cup, but he was finally not chosen for the final team that played (and won) in Mexico. All in all, he is rated as one of the best keepers of Football History.

    In 1977 Fillol was awarded the Olimpia de Plata as the Argentine sports writer's footballer of the year, he was the first goalkeeper ever to receive the award.

    Cim Bom's final pick is:

    Roberto Fabian Ayala



    Regarded as one of the best central defenders in the world, he has been captain of the Argentine national team for more matches than anyone else.[1] He has captained in 63 matches and has played in three World Cups. Ayala made 115 international appearances, with only Javier Zanetti having more caps for Argentina.
    Roberto inherited the nickname of Ratón (Mouse) from Argentine 1974 World Cup player Rubén Ayala, though they are not related.

    Gk-Neville Southall

    His armband proved he was a red, torres, torres

    My final pick is the player I believe will eclipse all others (the Rushes, the Aldridges etc) and become the greatest striker Liverpool has ever seen:

    Fernando Torres



    Youll never walk alone it said, torres, torres

    Scored 24 goals in his debut season in England, eclipsing the previous record of goals scored by a foriegn player in the Premier, and he did this without being the penalty taker.

    We got the boy from sunny Spain, give him the ball hell score again

    Currently lighting it up with Spain in the Euros - unbelievable speed, power and finishing ability.

    Fernando Torres, Liverpool No. 9

    Patrick Battiston - France - Defender

    1981 Won Division 1

    1982 World Cup Semifinalist (4th)

    1984 Won Division 1
    Won European Football Championship

    1985 Won Division 1
    1986 Won Coupe de France
    World Cup Semifinalist (3rd)
    1987 Won Division 1
    Won Coupe de France
    1988 Won Division 1



    For the older ones, they will remember Patrick Battiston as the player who almost got killed on the field in the famous 82 WC semi final in Sevilla against West Germany. This is the sports version of the Kennedy assassination for French people: everyone knows where they were at the time of this game. At the time the West Germans were unstoppable: dull play, but all around solid, and always found a way to win in the end. After this game, a rivalry between both teams became awful. The game was extremely tense, marred by questionable ref calls (at least from a French point of view).

    The game’s tied 1-1, Platini sends a pass deap that splits the defense to a streaking (not naked) Battiston who came up from his defensive position. As he shoots from just outside the box, Harald Schumcher the GK, ignoring the ball, jumps out landing his hip squarely on Battiston head. Ball went wide, Battiston KO’d. Broken vertebrae, broken teeth and went later into a coma at the hospital.

    No penalty was whistled, no foul, no card..nothing.

    The game became epic afterwards going down as one of the biggest chokes in the history of sports. The game went to OT, during which France scored 2 goals. Game over, right?

    It was never over with the Germans. They scored 2 goals to tie it up. Game went to penalty kicks…you can guess the rest.

    Gentleman, this all-time soccer draft has been a lot of fun. I think we all learned a great deal more about the "beautiful game" (some more than others), and enjoyed crafting our own teams of superstars.

    Without further ado, and with the final pick of the 2008 JI All-Time Soccer Draft, I select one of the greatest strikers to ever play in the Scottish Premier League, and a legend on the Swedish national team...

    Henrik Larsson
