great, not even my online buds care to enjoy some fun with me.

I'm down, but we should kill the time limit. I mean, I am pretty cool with it, but there are not too many soccer guys on the boards, u cant really afford to scare them off haha. Plus some people are from Europe so the time difference could screw up limits. Anyways, I am down. I recommend posting in the soccer thread.

I'll do this but I honestly don't know much about international soccer/football

I love playing it and watching it, but there isn't much of it on in the US

If u want, I will co it with u because it gets really tough. I was in ur boat for a while. I 1st started watching soccer after the world cup, but it was tough to follow at 1st because there are so many players and a ton of leagues. Coing in one of these helped out a ton, so long as the GM will help you. Thats what I would recommend anyway, but it is ur call. If you really want to get into soccer, this is a very good step tho haha!

Just a quick test ? to see if being a GM is an option: Do u know who Lionel Messi is without looking him up?

i know that he is a forward for Argentina and he had like 5 or 6 shots on goal vs the US in Copa America Cup

Thats good. I mean, he is probably like the most heavily hyped young guy out there right now. Its ur call on whether u want to go it alone or not, it just gets kind of difficult later. Just helping u out because i was in ur boat before :)

Is this gonna be purely potential based, or do we pick the old guys?

Rob S
08-15-2007, 02:46 PM

thats why i asked if it was dynasty or not. I would like it to be over a 3 year period or so. That way, u can take aging guys, but young guys as well.

Hey Fenikz, since your new to this stuff, here's a good gauge of where to pick players. This was the last draft we had and I just stumbled on it in my bookmarks. http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/forum/showthread.php?p=369338#post369338

well imo, the big 5 if you will are all pretty close. Just depends on what u want.

well imo, the big 5 if you will are all pretty close. Just depends on what u want.

I considered Ronaldo, but I have a sleeper winger I am going to take as long as nobody steals him, was a toss up between the best winger and the best CM in the world for me.

wiscbadgerfootball
08-16-2007, 12:01 PM
the world's best CM hasn't been taken yet ;)

Rob S
08-16-2007, 12:45 PM
the world's best CM hasn't been taken yet ;)

well, there are 3 that are damn close. With kaka, he has the youth and is the best natural goal scorer imo. I wont name the other 2, but both are older then kaka. One is just amazing (was considered the best in the world...altho kaka and ronaldo have taken that away) but disappointed a bit last year and the other is just the best leader u can ask for. As I said, it depends what u want. I prefer to go with the youth of Ronaldo and I like the fact that he plays on the wing which is much less deep than CM. Kaka is also young and has been just amazing. The other 2 CM yet to be taken could easily have gone 1-2 as well.

wiscbadgerfootball
08-16-2007, 12:49 PM
well beauty is in the eye of the beholder as you say. it does depend partly on how you are shaping your team etc etc. everyone has his or her own opinion

either way I found a cool soccer highlight video

I was talking about CM. As far as ST, there are a few out there i rate more than Eto'o, but he is amazing as well.

I have to ask this question again before I make my pick, is this pure potential, and if I pick Freddy Adu here(arguably most potential in the world), what would happen?????

UKfan
08-17-2007, 03:06 PM
You'd be laughed at I imagine, since Freddy Adu doesn't have the most potential in the world anyway you look at it :P

it is over a course of 3 years, maybe 5. But years 1-3 are just as important as 4-5, so adu would be a terrible choice.

Oh, RF, no big deal but u have Ronaldo listed as a ST, he plays wing.

UKfan
08-18-2007, 03:07 PM
Hmmm, tough choice here for me. My homerism as a Liverpool fan is getting to me but for a combination of talent, heart and the ability to keep improving, I'll go with John Terry

Yeah I figure so as well, unless you steal him Rob! Although IMO they wouldn't make a good pairing, lack of pace.

Robinho is an excellent choice imo. His performance at the Copa America this year proved he can finish, which was the only knock on him whatsoever.

TCU

Gimmie Michael Essien

I like Essien more being a chelsea fan so it was painful to take two CM first when i could have taken Essien, but Ronaldinho and Gerrard were steals for me so i had to take them. But good Essien pick.

TCU
