    Manager Draft - Group B

    Where would you rank Shearer compared to some modern day strikers? Let’s say Suarez, Benzema, Henry, Shevchenko and Shearer?

    That’s not underrating him. It’s fairly rating him. Shearer was a great striker and he was also nowhere near the best strikers of all time. Both those views are fine to hold at the same time. He might have cracked the top ten if he’d had a titan like Scott Brown playing behind him.

    Yes it is. Romario is a top ten striker of all time. Shearer would struggle to get in the top 50.

    I think Batistuta is the fourth best striker in the whole draft and if you think Keegan is better than Romario then you’re absolutely fucking mental. If you look at any top ten strikers of all time list you’ll find Romario. Doubt you’ll see Shearer anywhere near it, shocking shout that. 1. Ronaldo 2. Van Basten 3. Romario 4. Batistuta 5. Sanchez 6. Shearer 7. Keegan 8. Bergkamp

    Just read they’re making a film based on this book. Looks interesting. The Road to Balcombe Street https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0789029138/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_CefbFbWHB1KGZ

    Keegan was a fantastic footballer and key to our success under Shankly, with regards to the Balon d’Or within 5 years or so of Keegan winning it you also had Allan Simonsen, Oleg Blokhin and Igor Belanov all winning it and you probably wouldn’t get much credit for picking them on here either, though you’d think Keegan would be rated higher due to his Liverpool connection. Another couple of reasons could be, if you didn’t see him play, his goalscoring record isn’t that good for us, just worse than one in three I think. 13 goals being the most league goals he ever scored in a season for us and the other thing is I’ve often heard him described as Britain’s first superstar footballer. He wasn’t just a footballer he was a celebrity, he was on Superstars and released music singles, and like Beckham, that can overshadow his footballing achievements a bit.

    The crazy thing is you seemed to want him over Vieira. Do you think he’s a better player or something?

    I’m sure I used to play Lothar Matthews on Sensible Soccer.

    Yeah I was pretty lucky Zeman had someone left who could play right wing back. Dynamite fucked up my overall plan by taking Nicol when I was going to have him as my next pick. I would have had Nicol instead of Petrescu and Aldair instead of Carragher but it wasn’t to be. After he picked Nicol I then decided I’d have Lahm and, of course, aRdja picked him straight away.

    It’s better to put a lesser player in your team in their correct position than it is to shoehorn a superior player in who is playing out of position. I think that’s the mistake a lot of potentially great draft teams make by picking a centre mid on the wings or a centre back as a full back rather than just going for a weaker player in their natural position. I’m more than happy with Carragher and Walker. I think they were both excellent players and perfect as the two blockers in a back three. With Petrescu I toyed with putting someone like Kuyt there who would get more love on here than Petrescu but ultimately Petrescu is perfectly suited for a right wing back role. He’s the weakest player in my team, no doubt, but he was also a good player.

    Really good game. Much like us having another category draft straight after the last one I reckon we could do another two or three of these with a different choice of managers. Whittle this list down to 3 X 11, Big Phil Scolari, Vanderlei Luxemburgo, George Graham, Berti Vogts, Vujadin Boškov, Bobby Robson, Alberto Zaccheroni, Luis Aragones, Ron Atkinson, Giovanni Trappatoni, Graeme Souness, Tele Santana, Marcello Lippi, Udo Lattek, Vicente Del Bosque, Bob Paisley, Rinus Michels, Carlo Ancelotti, Roberto Mancini, Harry Redknapp, Rafa Benitez, Johan Cruyff, Roy Hodgson, Carlos Alberto Parreira, Terry Venables, Louis Van Gaal, John Toshack, Radomir Antic, Arsene Wenger, Jupp Heynckes, Guus Hiddinck, Manuel Pellegrini, Dick Advocaat, Mario Zagallo, Franz Beckenbauer, Jose Mourinho. I’ll try and do a little write up on the teams and vote tomorrow when I get a chance.

    I love Vierchowod. He’s one of my favourite defenders of all time.
