    Oh yeah defo. It was probably Dim, I think we can agree he’s a bigger cunt than both of us.

    Boris Johnson

    Makes me laugh all these cabinet appointments and announcements on policy. They’ve got a majority of one. They aren’t getting anything extreme through Parliament. They may be able to get a hard Brexit at the end of October through some political skullduggery such as proroguing parliament - that remains to be seen - but they’ll collapse immediately afterwards. This is essentially their roadshow for the next general election.

    You didn’t have him in that draft. The team that had him in that draft actually had Figo as well and got to the two team final. You had him in a World Cup draft but I complimented him in that one as far as I can see.

    The lemonade man

    My dad used to work as one for Schofields years ago when he was early 20's so I must have been 5 or 6, but how boss was it when they'd drop it off? Cream Soda, Cherryade and Dandelion and Burdock were the staple drinks. Used to like Cream soda best but can't drink it now as I can't find one that tastes as nice. On a related note, there was nearly world war 3 in work between a couple of middle aged scouse women who insisted, apart from Coke, every other fizzy drink, Fanta, Tizer etc... was to be referred to as lemonade and some assorted wools from Southport and the Wirral who insisted Lemonade could only apply to drinks such as 7up and Sprite.

    Wasps

    I’m not arsed about wasps, they don’t bother me, I just ignore them and they go away. Doesn’t bother me if they land on me. Never been stung by one. Out before in Farmer Teds which is bad enough anyway with loads of kids running around screaming and one of the people we were with had a fit every time one went near them. Jumping up and down, flapping their arms, no wonder the fucker wants to sting you. Have a bit of dignity.

    If you pick an ex Utd player, lets say Evra, some people won’t vote for you. It’s just the way it is. People have their own prejudices against different things. On the other hand you might get someone like Tony who knows a lot about the older players and votes for you for that reason.

    Figo is a weird player really. Thought of as the best winger in the world at the time, he doesn’t get much credit nowadays. Same as say, Donadoni, who was a great player at the time but is pretty much forgotten now. I think it’s down to the role they play now being occupied by players at the top level who score tons of goals. Salah, Messi, Mane etc... and they had poor goal scoring records. Figo never even reached 15 goals in a season for either Barca or Real.

    You aren’t penalised. You are free to choose whoever you want and other people are free to judge however they want. This isn’t hard. I think a limit of six for France/Belgium may be a bit too low. Of the other teams on the list you are only going to realistically be able to pick players from Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Senegal and Switzerland apart from the odd player.

    N’Kono hasn’t exactly got loads of competition for best African keeper... which is clearly Grobelaar anyway. I mean Lauren is probably the greatest ever African right back. Doesn’t mean he’s a great player. Pointless adding up Balon D’Ors as well. You could have four players who have won one each and another team has only Messi who has won five. On another note I had no idea Rivaldo had won a Balon D’Or until I picked him and the year he won’t doesn't even look like his best season for Barca.

    La Liga Draft Group B

    Elite Great front three and Vieri was always a big favourite of mine. Quality player. Iniesta is a good pick behind them in midfield but the two behind him are a bit weak. Cazorla was always better, for me, further forward than you have him and I think Mauro Silva would have too much to do and wasn't good enough to do it. Solid enough defence. Ardja Nice front two and the best player the world has ever seen, Netzer, would have plenty of joy trying to play them into space. Not sure on the rest of the midfield, Almeyda wasn't anything special and is a pretty weak anchor for the midfield. One quality fullback in Lizarazu and one not so good in Lauren and a great keeper and centre back pairing. Lee The two best centre back picks from the non Barca and Real players but the rest of the defence is a bit weak. I thought at the time Aurellio was a pretty bad pick so early in the draft and he wasn't even the best left back in the Valencia team he was a part of. I like the midfield two and think they'd compliment each other well. Up front is a bit hard to judge as well with the three behind but I loved Hugo Sanchez as a player. Great striker. Alex Good solid back four and I like them all. Your keeper though... actually he might be worse than Stig's, I can't believe Abiatti wasn't taken. Solid if unspectacular midfield two and I really like all four players ahead of them but I'm just not sure where Kaka fits in. Drop Kaka for another centre mid, say Essien, and put Cruyff behind the front two and I think you'd be onto a winner. As it stands I think the side is good enough to exit the group but not to win the whole thing. I'm going to go for Lee and Alex.

    La Liga Draft Group A

    Loads of good teams in both groups so I might have to nitpick a little bit to differentiate. Tony Great fullback pairing and I like the attack, Raul could play a similar role to Del Piero as a foil for Trezeguet. As others have alluded to though, Ortega is out of position. He was either a winger or a 10 and you don't seem to be playing him in either position. I think if you had Ortega right wing, Ronaldinho left wing and Raul behind Trezeguet your side would look much better. John As others have said it's almost impossible to rate Zarra as the era he was playing in was barely professional football as we know it. If someone picked Dixie Dean in a draft, or Elisha Scott as Ardja did, then I find it hard to view the player positively. I think the midfield would have been better served without Laudrup as it leaves the side too open and Deschamps and Guardiola, good as they were, are both pretty slow players. I like the defence though, Iuliano was a good player though I always preferred Montero from that era Juve team as he was a hard, dirty bastard. Dim Think Sosa is a weak pick and kind of take some of the shine off the two Ronaldos, Midfield is nice and I think they'd complement each other, only slight criticism would be it's quite a slow midfield. Hard to judge the keeper but I like the rest of the back four, even if I think Marchena is a step down in quality to the others. Think it's a bit mad you got Carboni as an eight round pick when Aurellio went in the fourth round as Carboni was a much better player imo and kept Aurellio out of the side to a large extent. Stig Possibly the best attack in the draft but a weak core to the defence. I think the midfield two don't really compliment each other as they are both pretty much out and out DMs and either would have looked better with someone like Alonso, Guardiola, Albertini, that type of player alongside them. Very good fullback pair but not a fan of the centre back pairing and the keeper is probably the worst in the draft. 3 Stacks I was never a fan of Chilavert, more of a show pony than a keeper but otherwise a pretty good back four. The formation is set up too weirdly for my liking but either way I think the midfield would be too open. Both Schuster and Toure were best as box-to-box midfielders and you haven't really got a holding player there. Plenty of attacking talent there but, again, not set up how I'd like them. Dynamite A bit like Dim with Ruben Sosa, I think Claudio Lopez takes the shine off the two others who were excellent. Midfield is really strong, got a bit of everything there, silk and steel. Keeper is hard to judge as even though he's known as a world class keeper, the level he played at for his club for most of his career was subpar. Demichellis and Iraola are pretty weak picks in comparison to the other teams in the draft. Overall I think I'm going to go for Stig and Dim.

    Started the voting well too soon. I had at least another 24 hours of moaning in me.

    Imagine what Ardja will be like with this one. Craig Forest. Single-handedly stopped Liverpool winning the league.

    I'm sure you picked Paul Elliot for a Serie A draft.

    Larsson... you just can't help yourself can you? No way he should even be under consideration when the likes of Villa, Kluivert, Eto'o, Van Nistelrooy etc... didn't get picked.

    Good unpicked players - Stig should have gone for Abiatti. Strange choice for his keeper. Abiatti Higuita Coupet Finnan Leonardo Naybet Demechellis Cesar Sampaio Fernando Senna Valderrama Momo Paolo Sousa Koke Saul Nigez Maxi Rodriguez Nasri Pires Mata Denilson Aimar Pato Juninho Hasselbaink Mandzukic

    This draft is the most important thing in my life you cunt. I'll fight you for it.

    You've just proved my point. Do you even know what you're arguing? Tell you what, Madrid didn't win the league the season they signed Getzer, but the season after they signed Breitner and won it twice in a row. All down to Breitner that. He was the reason Cruyff never won more titles at Barca. And Tony, get real will you. Do you really think anyone is going out buying fucking DVDs of Getzer to judge him in a draft. What about DVDs of Zarra? Or any other number of players in the draft. You pick old players, you take the risk that outside of the true world greats like Pele or Cruyff people may not be able to judge them properly, same as every draft. Do any of your DVDs tell you if Getzer was the main reason Cruyff only won one league at Barca? Because that was the claim Ardja made. Getzer was so good it seems that he even stopped Cruyff winning the league when he wasn't playing in La Liga.
