    The 2nd Almost-Annual Soccer Draft: Revenge of Urlacher


    All right let’s get this thing going. Let’s keep it simple like last time. There are no time constraints to picks, but let’s at least try to keep it to 24h for a pick. If you know you’re going to be away for a few days, PM your pick to the next guy or whomever to keep the ball rolling.

    Restrictions:
    - Current players only.
    - Injuries count. At the end of the draft we'll vote who has the best 11 player squad. If a player is out at that time, you can't field him.
    - 18 players per team: 11 + 7 subs (1 of them a GK) + 1 GM.
    - Your 18 players must come from at least 3 different championships.
    - You have to announce before your first pick what your formation will be 4-4-2, 4-3-3…etc. (Ex: Formation 4-4-2, Pick: Lionel Messi)
    - Trades are allowed

    The rest we'll make up along the way so I can win.

    Before we get going I need the next poster to give me a number between 1 and 10..

    Restrictions:

    - Injuries count. At the end of the draft we'll vote who has the best 11 player squad. If a player is out at that time, you can't field him.
    - 18 players per team: 11 + 7 subs (1 of them a GK) + 1 GM.
    - Your 18 players must come from at least 3 different championships.
    - You have to announce before your first pick what your formation will be 4-4-2, 4-3-3…etc. (Ex: Formation 4-4-2, Pick: Lionel Messi)

    Rule No. 1 of Mock Drafting - Don't mention undrafted players.
    Rule No. 2 of Mock Drafting - English players are overrated and should be treated as such.

  17. #17
    Now if I pick Wayne Rooney, it'll look like I'm cheating.

    F-ck it, I don't care.



    Formation: 4-4-2.


    I didn't want to pick an Italian anyway, just to prove a point (my next 7 picks will be Italians, to balance out the Englishman).

  18. #18
    This guy is injured at the moment (probably for a week or so) - and I know the rules, but he's just too good to pass up on form. At the moment probably the second best player at FC Barcelona, and probably in the whole of La Liga as well:

    Xavi




    Voted 3rd best player in the world last year, an attacking midfielder with extraordinary passing range and movement. Capable of scoring exquisite goals using his own skill, but also a great team man - his prowess from a dead ball situation is a sight to behold.

    One of the major reasons why Spain hold the European title, and Barca the La Liga and Champions League titles. He's certainly shown a lot more in the really big games/finals than Lionel Messi has (are we allowed to run down other players picks in order to get more votes? ).

    BTW - I'm going with 4 3 3.

    well (a) Chel$ki has won the league a few times since we went undefeated in 2004 (b) methink a certain portugese winger who went 1st in the draft may have had more to do with United's past success than Rooney and (c) i never said he was crappy, just overrated because he's English...if wayne rooney was named Cptaeu Gonzaga from Cameroon he'd be a second rounder despite his great form at the moment

    and with that, lets move any further smack talk to the draft discussion thread...you seem to have an awful lot to say for someone who isnt participating

    EDIT - whoops, Chrissy went 2nd in the draft
