Rob S
08-31-2007, 12:56 PM

UKfan
09-01-2007, 11:35 AM
The first round is pretty even regardless of the pick I would say, so you can't really go wrong...

Rob S

agreed, but it would be nice to have 4/5 instead of 1/8 imo.

09-01-2007, 12:08 PM
Where's this Modano character at?

UKfan
09-01-2007, 12:12 PM

It's cool, I have added you to the front page

Modano
09-02-2007, 04:37 AM
Damn, I'm impressed. Nice pick, didn't expect you to actually take him, now I know what I'm up against. :)

It was pretty easy for me. For the best soccer player it's between him and Cristiano Ronaldo, but Kaką is better in international competitions. There's another player who is on the same level of those two, but he hasn't been impressing in international competition, while dominating in every league and every team he played for. I'll tell you his name only when he will get picked ;)

Rob S
09-02-2007, 01:22 PM
Ronaldo- best in the world for my money, but it is between him and kaka for sure.

UKfan
09-02-2007, 03:13 PM
Sorry for the delay guys, playing soccer with my mates in the dark with a glowing yellow ball, was interesting lol, anyway, we take Steven Gerrard CM

Ronaldo or Cristiano Ronaldo?

nvot9
09-02-2007, 03:36 PM
Cristiano I think he means.


And I'm happy with Gerrard at 3. One of the more complete players in the world, and very controlling in the middle, plus he's got a great shot.

Rob S

Michael Essien CM, the perfect foil for Gerrard, and an absolutely dominant CM partnership for us.

Round 2, Pick 10th

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Inter FC

Round 3, Pick 11th

Frank Ribery, Bayern Munchen

@ nvot: Ibrahimovic is the guy I mentioned earlier

NOOOO i wanted Ibrahmiovic.... i didn't think he'd go so early....

nvot9
09-03-2007, 11:37 PM
Meh, I think there's one better striker than Ibrahimovich and overall a ton of talent at the position that you can get someone very good, anywhere. I tend to find Ibra slightly overrated mainly because his critics, and more over he himself, find that he's one of if not the best player in the world, and well, I just don't find that to be true. I find that he's not as pure a scorer as some of the other strikers, and while that's not the whole part of futbol and while he can do so much more...it is still a big, big chunk of the game.

Ribery was a good pick though, maybe a bit early, but you gotta love the guy. So talented on the wing, many say he'll move inside and be the next Zidane. The guy has SO much heart and works SO hard.

Rob S
09-04-2007, 12:45 AM
Easily the most talented ST in the world for my money, Wayne Rooney. People can hate (and i do hate him), but he is sheer class.

I wasn't thinking about him when rambling on before haha, but I do agree he's better than Zlatan, so that makes two strikers I believe are better than him, however, all three are still world-class strikers and very close in terms of talent...

(don't wanna name drop so I won't say the other striker till he's picked)

If you will be able to watch some games from Serie A I think you will change your opinion about Zlatan. He's a top 5 player. He's a dominant player, Kakà is better than him overall, and is better than him in international competition, but on sundays, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the best player in the serie A.
Yes he's not a pure scorer but still he scores a lot, and when he doesn't score he makes his team score. Two games so far in the 2007/2008 season, Inter has scored 3 goals, Zlatan scored two of them an served the assist for the other.
He improves every player on the field, he's not only a striker, he's a lot more.
When he played for Ajax, he won two championships, scoring 35 goals in 74 games with a ton of assist, he came to Juventus and won other two championship, scoring 23 goals and serving the majority of the assists. Then he went to Inter, and he won another championship, becoming the most important player on the team.
If you can, watch a Serie A game and you will understand why Zlatan is a top 5 player.

For Ribery, well, he's deadly. He's dominating in a team with good talent. I don't think he's gonna be the next Zidane, the play a different type of game. The next Zidane is Samir Nasri.

UKfan
09-04-2007, 07:36 AM
I watch a lot of Serie A and I disagree again about Ibrahimovic, I just don't see him as a top 5 player, no way no how, heck he might not even make it into my top 10 strikers.

nvot9
09-04-2007, 10:19 AM
Me and Ukfan are going with Centre Defender: Carles Puyol.

Behind Terry, Puyol is the best defender in the world right now, and along with Essien and Gerrard, he gives us the most controlling and dominant Center of the field out there...

JeffSamardzijaIRISH

I don't know man. I've watch every game Inter play, and Zlatan is the best player in the league along with Kaką. Posting a youtube video will be useless even if there are some good ones that shows Zlatan skills. Just watch Inter playing, and watch what Zlatan does for the team and how hard it is for opposite defenders to stop him.
I don't know about your top 10 strikers, but maybe in England they don't give much consideration to Ibrahimovic. Here in Italy, every sport writers, or every sport media consider Zlatan one of the best in the world.
But it's soccer, the sport where fans never agree on. So agree to disagree...
