Shall we, gents? 8-12 people should make for a good draft. If you suck and take too long OTC, I will select for you or you will be skipped.

BTW, I take lists! If you aren't going to be around you can PM me a list or I can text you that you are OTC. If you want a text, send my your # via PM.

If McGee is in, we shall start tonight with 8! So, if you want to join, assuming McGee joins, we have 2 spots still open. I am fine with just 8 teams though.

You shouldn't be so assuming, Rob. But I could give it a shot if you want.

You were the one complaining about a lack of EPL discussion and being to lazy to join a soccer board. In fact, that post was the impetus for this draft. No is not an option. Random order now, lets hope GOW doesn't get #1 haha.

Rob S

By the way, current injuries do not count. If a player is injury prone, however, that can count against you.

Yeah I had a real hard time with my pick. I felt the obvious choices were gone and I had a lot of ways I could go. If it wasn't for injuries Robben would be a no brainer, but even with them his position isn't nearly as deep as others.

Gay Ork Wang
07-27-2011, 08:54 AM
while i think robben is one of the best players in the world, his injury concerns are way way way to high for him to be a first round pick for me. I mean he missed half of last season, he already got injured yesterday for this season again, while only a minor, its something to think about

I understand not wanting to do a full big board so early on. I would like small lists though, especially if the time difference will come into play. Even if its just one or two guys, at least it gives us a chance of moving forward.

Eh......he makes some incredible runs, scores some incredible goals, and has had some unforgettable performances, however.....How does a 7 goals and one assist get you PFA Player of the Year Award? Overrated.

Modric has a claim to 3rd, although I think there are a couple guys that could slot in at #3 behind Xavi/Iniesta.

Caddy
07-28-2011, 08:33 AM
Both of these are true. Modric will look nice in Chelsea blue.

He isn't going anywhere. Reports are Chelsea is set to make a final, 30mil offer. If we wouldn't let him go for 27, he isn't going for 30.

Alright, I feelI have to do this. Despite injury concurs, I gotta go Michael Essien here. When fit, I think he a top 15 player, worth the risk here.

i was thinking about him with my next pick

Cigaro
07-28-2011, 09:01 AM
Bale's overrated. Once he dominates a team other than Inter Milan, I'll consider retracting my statement.

A good, young talented player, but his performance against Inter has not yet been proven to be more than a anomaly.

As for Essien, I considered him too, but even though current injuries don't count, the fact that he's injured again this year pushed me away.

Caddy
07-28-2011, 09:03 AM
He played pretty well the rest of the season... It was far from an anomaly. He is just inconsistent.

Cigaro
07-28-2011, 09:04 AM
He played pretty well the rest of the season... It was far from an anomaly. He is just inconsistent.

He played well, but it's the performance against Inter that garnered him most of the attention and love he receives now.

A performance he has yet to repeat.

Caddy
07-28-2011, 09:06 AM
He played possibly the best game of the season by an individual. How do you repeat that every game?

Jughead10
07-28-2011, 09:07 AM
Essien also wasn't great when he was healthy last season.

Cigaro
07-28-2011, 09:09 AM
He played possibly the best game of the season by an individual. How do you repeat that every game?

I'm not expecting him to repeat that exact performance every game.

But I would like to see him dominate at least one other team.

Again, he's a good player, but he hasn't proven to be at the level the Inter games would have led you to believe he was at.

Caddy
07-28-2011, 09:11 AM
He's been pretty dominant. The only reason he hasn't reached the level people think he is at, is because he is inconsistent.

Jughead10
07-28-2011, 09:14 AM
He also still gets moved around a decent bit between back and midfield.

Caddy
07-28-2011, 09:15 AM

Thought Chicharito would have been gone by now, but glad to get him. He's only getting better.

As for Hummels, I considered waiting on him since he's not as big a name as some other defenders, but considering he dominated the Bundesliga this year, decided I couldn't pass him up.

Hummels is really, really good. I just don't know how many people in this draft know about him.

I wasn't sure either, which is why I didn't know if I was lucky that he was still available, or if no one really knew about him and I could wait a few more rounds.

But once Chiellini went off the table, I knew I wanted him to anchor the defense with Silva.

As for Wilshere, I was hoping for a more defensive midfielder a la Busquets or Toure, but Wilshere is still a very talented, very young holding midfielder.

Gay Ork Wang
07-30-2011, 07:02 PM

Your defense is epic and your attack looks decent considering you waited so long. That elite striker punch would be nice though. Hulk has the potential, but isn't totally proven (I do like him a lot) and Suarez is a good goal scorer, but does a bunch of other things and will never pump then in like a true top line striker.

I thought he'd end up being real good on the back, but the injury at the start of the year hurt him and from then on he was never able to show that he was any better than 4th best at either center or (too often) fullback. Still a big fan moving forward, but City definitely was not best for him.
