    Sergio "Kun" Aguero

    One of the last 'top shelf'' strikers available - Maradona's son-in-law. Probably not in his best form of late, but he has the type of quality that places him in the top 5 in his position in the world - and United, Chelsea or Man City will be shelling out in the order of 50 million pounds plus this Summer for his services. Has been let down by playing in a pretty poor Atletico side this season, but look out if he gets the type of service he can expect if he moves to one of the giants, either in Spain or England.

    Incredible low-centre of gravity, with obviously superb balance, more tricks than a master magician, lethal finishing, a terror in space, and only 21 years of age. Actually reminds one of a young George Best before the alcohol dimmed the superlative Irishman's awesome raw skill.



    As you can see, just from the film below from one game, Kun gives any defence fits trying to mark him:

    Maicon



    "Playing like Platini from the fullback position is orgasmic - I probably shouldn't be touching myself like this in front of 70,000 people."

    Well, I've gone defence with this selection, mainly because this fella is not only exceptional in defence - awesome marker, great tackler - but just a great distributor of the ball, especially from wide positions, - "bends it like Beckham" - but is equally adept with his short passes - AND he scores goals, and has the touch of a master finisher. He's just a sick player - you could play him anywhere across the pitch. Will link up with Xavi and Gerrard massively, with Kun feeding off the scraps. He's a killer in the tackle and has that exceptional balance between "attack" and "defence" for his position that will eventually mark him as an all-time great.

    To me he is the form defender of this global season, and certainly better at his position than the "name" player, the other Brazilian, in Dani Alves, who is boosted by the players around him.

    To be honest, there were some centre halves in the mix for this pick, as well as the Italian Pirlo (thought Paulie might have grabbed him before this, but he had other pressing needs). In terms of mids I have other names in mind - Pirlo - superlative passer, but getting long in the tooth - probably the reason Paulie's passed him by, maybe for a later round.

    So here is one of my full backs, in Douglas Maicon. A MASSIVE threat in both attack and defence.

    damn sorry for the delay...still, i hate this slot, and still really dont know who to take, so i might as well use it to kill 2 birds with 1 stone, even if a bit early

    Iker Casillas, GK

    A GK at this stage in the draft? Interesting...


    How's that for smack talk?

    This one may be a bit too early cause he plays in the Eredivisie but **** it. He has 41 goals in 39 games this year, he can flat out score. So I'm gonna go with foward/winger Luis Suárez.

    Going for an injured player who's a great LB and will be ready before this draft is over.

    Ashley Cole
