I have finals coming up for school and the NFL draft is going on... but if I have time I will. Put me down as maybe for now.

There isn't a time limit or anything, so you can just check in and make your pick when you see you're on the clock. Obviously it helps if you make it as soon as you can.

Someone has to pick all of the german players.

Alright i'm down then. Just PM me if I am late/miss something because I usually check this site for a second frequently so I will see the PM.

So how is this going to go down as far what we are picking? Just the starting XI?

Starting 11 and 5 subs.

Starting 11 and 5 subs.

If that's the case don't you think 10 people would be a bit to many? Not just that the talent pool might drop off but that you might have a bunch of people not online when it's their turn to pick and holding up the whole thing.

We have 5 now, I wouldn't mind cutting it off after 1 more so we have 6. I think 8 should be the maximum.

If it gets to long we can just say we wont do subs, but i think we should be alright.

SuperPacker

Ok then, i'll see if anyone else whats to join but if not i'll put you in.

We'll be starting tomorrow people. Probably around 12 ET. I'll randomise the order, then we can start picking.

No, assuming everyone is fit and healthy.

Oh nice. I got a lot of crap for taking Robben in the last one I did.

we can just use this thread. i was just reserving that post for my squad.

Am I still on the clock? I want Cristiano!

SuperPacker

You can't pick him, he's been picked already. When you decide who you want post it in the selection thread.

Rob S
04-27-2012, 07:22 AM
Broncosfan deserves to be booted.

Justone2
04-27-2012, 07:42 AM
Must say it was a tough decision who to pick third. The first two are obvious but behind that i thought there was a whole bunch of guys who can be picked up.

Wootylicous
04-27-2012, 09:41 AM
I can take over for broncosfan if he doesn't show up

SuperPacker
04-27-2012, 10:43 AM
Im definitely considering it! I'll give him a little more time though.

broncosfan
04-27-2012, 12:01 PM
Give me Mesut Ozil! Is he available?

SuperPacker
04-27-2012, 12:03 PM
Post your pick in the selection thread and we can move on.

Of course he is. He isn't the 6th best player in the world.

broncosfan
04-27-2012, 12:18 PM
Nah, he is more of a top 3 guy ;)

thefalconer
04-27-2012, 02:27 PM

Damnit Jughead Cavani was mine!

Gay Ork Wang
04-28-2012, 10:25 AM

Rob S
04-28-2012, 10:48 AM
Pique was a reach

Not as much as bale!

Let's roll. SuperPacker just don't forget to PM me if I'm late on a pick, i've got a lot of school work.

I'm not allowed to PM him for some reason.

SuperPacker
04-29-2012, 11:11 AM
me neither :/

we'll just have to wait for him.

Wootylicous
04-29-2012, 11:12 AM
He was either banned or suspended

SuperPacker

Have someone replace him.

Big fan of Zlatan since he played for my favourite team(AFC Ajax)

Wootylicous

Wesley is a goddamn beast.

Justone2
04-29-2012, 12:27 PM
Not at the moment because he is too fat. Besides that he is ŕ great player.

SuperPacker
04-29-2012, 03:24 PM
I think Rosebud has already won lol.

Wootylicous
04-29-2012, 03:25 PM

You're probably the only one that could.

UKfan
04-29-2012, 03:31 PM
Rosebud's team is good, but then all of them look good so far, we are only 25 players in. Depth later one will decide this I imagine

Rosebud
04-29-2012, 03:32 PM
It's cool guys, I've still gotta pick a couple bundesliga guys way before anyone over than GOW would've even considered them.

I do however, clearly have the best team flag.

Wootylicous
04-29-2012, 03:33 PM
You're probably the only one that could.

Vidic will crush Silva/Ribery

SuperPacker

And get sent off in the process.

Vidic likely wouldn't even play against the two wingers most the time, given that he is a DC and all.

Wootylicous
04-29-2012, 03:48 PM
He will be all over the field UK. Don't question my tactics to implement a 1-7-3 with Vidic manhandling the back all alone.

Wootylicous
04-29-2012, 03:51 PM
That's right a 1-7-3.

Rob S
04-29-2012, 03:54 PM
Every team is good right now. The only people with an advantage imo are the lucky bastards that got Messi and CR7.

UKfan
04-29-2012, 03:57 PM
Except the team that got the most overrated player in history in Zlatan... :P

Wootylicous
04-29-2012, 03:58 PM
I think you meant Gareth Bale

SuperPacker
04-29-2012, 04:00 PM
I think you meant Gareth Bale

Have to agree with this. My mate thinks he's the 3rd best player in the world...I'm like "he kicks a ball and runs! thats all he does!"

Rob S
04-29-2012, 04:01 PM
I actually agree he is overrated and went on a massive anti-Bale rant in a previous draft, but it is because of injuries. When fit, he is absolutely outstanding. We are assuming fitness here, so I think he is easily a top 20 player and I think you're splitting hairs ranking guys between 10-20 anyway.

Wootylicous
04-29-2012, 04:01 PM
He's a fast ************ though

UKfan
04-29-2012, 04:14 PM
I used to hate on Bale when he was played at left back as he cant tackle worth a damn, on his day he is a pretty devastating winger though, thinking in particular when he played Inter and so on.

Zlatan on the other hand is useful if you play a team of scrubs, make him play top tier talents and he is not even average, the man is the definition of a flat track bully.

I promised myself I wouldn't rant on Zlatan, but I just can't help it!

SuperPacker
04-29-2012, 06:15 PM
Silva has been picked already. You need to change your pick.

Rosebud
04-29-2012, 06:17 PM
broncosfan, you need to stop trying to pick my players.

Gay Ork Wang
04-29-2012, 07:19 PM
thiago silva was also picked.

can we just kick broncosfan?

Rob S
04-29-2012, 10:32 PM
broncosfan is killing us. i am ok with booting him.

Rob S
04-29-2012, 10:33 PM
we should at least skip him.

Wootylicous
04-29-2012, 10:40 PM
Me too. Let's get this going.

SuperPacker
04-30-2012, 06:38 AM
I am writing to inform you that i have decided to remove broncosfan from the Soccer Draft, with immediate affect. As of now there are no clear favourites to replace him, however we will be listening to offers for anyone interested in taking up an interim role.

Caddy
04-30-2012, 07:44 AM
Could have gotten Lucio WAY later. Nobody ever picks him in these things.

Wootylicous

Quick Renji lol.

well **** you, i wanted modric.

SuperPacker
04-30-2012, 12:49 PM
**** YOU RENJI!

Alonso was mine!

SuperPacker
04-30-2012, 12:51 PM
Vincent Kompany has been picked already

Gay Ork Wang
04-30-2012, 01:00 PM
He will play next to Schweini and infront of pique. No one is going to score.

Wootylicous
04-30-2012, 01:19 PM
Jughead is on the clock

Gay Ork Wang
04-30-2012, 01:24 PM
**** you two.

Jughead10
04-30-2012, 01:26 PM
Sorry. I never know where to take goalkeepers in this these things. So I'd rather take the first than get left with someone I don't want.

David Villa healthy and fit is a world class striker.

Justone2
04-30-2012, 05:11 PM
Maybe a bit early for Puyol but he will be the big leader on my team.

SuperPacker
04-30-2012, 05:11 PM

This is true.

I totally forgot about him :facepalm:

Gay Ork Wang

maybe. but you couldve gotten him later.

Rosebud
04-30-2012, 05:39 PM
I dunno GOW, he was the top striker left on my list. *shrug*

Wootylicous
05-01-2012, 11:18 AM
Damn Rosebud holding this up! I think we should instigate a clock.

Rosebud
05-01-2012, 04:55 PM
Sorry guys, thought I sent SuperPacker a PM.

SuperPacker
05-01-2012, 04:56 PM
When i saw you picked Dzeko i remembered. Sorry Rosebud and everyone else.

Justone2
05-01-2012, 05:25 PM
Perfect fit Next to the tiny Puyol.

Todd Bertuzzi
05-02-2012, 01:52 AM
Lucio is easily the biggest reach so far.

Caddy
05-02-2012, 04:57 AM
Lucio is easily the biggest reach so far.

Haha yep. I said it when he was picked. I often take hm in these drafts, because nobody picks him until the last few rounds - which is where he deserves to go.

05-02-2012, 08:29 AM
This is going brutally slow.....c'mon guys.

Wootylicous
05-02-2012, 12:19 PM

Wootylicous
05-03-2012, 10:06 AM
This is moving so slow...come on SP...instigate a clock or this is gonna die...

Rob S
05-03-2012, 10:32 AM
Yeah, I'm pretty sure a weekday clock of 2 hours is more than fair, especially since you can leave lists/get people to text you.

When to run the clock is another matter, maybe 9 AM EST - 7 PM EST

SuperPacker
05-03-2012, 10:47 AM
I didnt want to, but you're right, we might have to.

Like Rob said, when do we do it? Half the people live in Europe...

Jughead10
05-03-2012, 10:48 AM
My fault for holding this up. I had no idea I was up. Pick will be up in a minute.

Rob S
05-03-2012, 10:50 AM
I didnt want to, but you're right, we might have to.

Like Rob said, when do we do it? Half the people live in Europe...

9 - 7 EST would be 2 - 12 in the UK and 3 - 1 in the rest of Europe.

SuperPacker
05-03-2012, 10:53 AM
9 - 7 EST would be 2 - 12 in the UK and 3 - 1 in the rest of Europe.

Yeah thats fair.

Make sure you all send your boards in, because there will be a 2 hour clock from 9am - 7pm EST. If you dont send a board and you run out of time, i'll pick for you and i cant guarantee you'll get someone you like.

Gay Ork Wang
05-03-2012, 11:22 AM
Dont pick for people. just skip them

thefalconer

i was going to pick Götze and reus, then figured reus might fall :D

Jughead10
05-04-2012, 07:22 AM
Damn I thought for sure Ramires would make it back to my next pick.

Rob S
05-04-2012, 08:53 AM
any thoughts on my picks

I'm fine with the Goetze pick here, not an incredible steal or anything, but solid value and he is fantastic.

I love Cisse as much as anyone, but I still think he was a reach. I mean, I think he has the ability to score 25 goals next year and dominate the EPL and if he does that then he will go incredibly high in these, but he just doesn't have the track record yet in big games/competitions to go over guys like Eto'o and Tevez imo. Cisse was a reach for sure, but I still love hm as a player and he was sure to get snapped up earlier than expected because of the wonder goal.

thefalconer
05-04-2012, 09:26 AM
gah javi martinez. good pick. gonna be one of the world's best.

UKfan
05-04-2012, 09:27 AM
Thanks, I wondered if I could hold off any longer on him, but decided now was the time to pull the trigger.

Rob S
05-04-2012, 10:08 AM
Time check

EDIT: I'm pretty sure we can skip as the last pick was made at 1:02 NFLDC time.

Eto'o for me, with no real competitive games for him, with him on the downside of the career, id rather take cisse. Tevez for me is too much of a headcase. Cisse has shown to me over years in the bundesliga what he can do. with this season, im fairly confident in him

SuperPacker

Eh....Tevez, I guess if you count the headcase against him. I wonder if we are assuming mental fitness as well lol.....he doesn't really play out of control though.

Eto'o I just dont see it yet, he pumped in 21 goals and 9 assists in 2010-11 at Inter when they played him in the middle and it's not like he didn't score a bunch in Russia. I'm very confident he will be at PSG next year and probably lead Ligue One in scoring.

That said, all 3 players are great and I think they were the last strikers that are in that top class with a drop off coming now.

Tevez is one of the best strikers in the world when he's fit and playing. I don't really know why he dropped so far.

Depends on what you look for. Huntelaar is one of THE best finishers just like an Inzaghi who can't do anything but score goals.

Damn I thought for sure Ramires would make it back to my next pick.

Well if somebody hadn't stolen Arturo Vidal from me that could've happened...as is I couldn't wait any longer to get central midfield workhorse. With Toure and Vidal gone it came down to Ramires or another marathon man, who still hasn't been picked, for me.

All in all I'm pretty pleased with my team, reached a little for Mata but a playmaking wing who can play centrally as well was really tough to pass on, especially that early, when I was still unsure of what my primary formation would be.

That's a good fit for him on that team, he's like a wealthy man's Kalou, but I needed somebody in the middle who's ready to run...and run...and run, was planning on having him pick up one of the wingers defensively as I think you're right that he excels most when he can play out wide in those spaces, but I was thinking of using him as a central guy who drifts wide.

Which brings me to my question, how are we going to decide this thing once we're done picking? General poll or draw one on one matchups and we can vote our way to a champion? I'm curious because I was putting together a team that could shift around between different formations depending on opponent, so obviously my vote is for one on one polls...

Nah i genuinely see it different to most, people who have mocked with e before, Woot, Rob etc, will know I value certain types of players higher than others, and during his Liverpool days I had a MASSIVE Javier Mascherano man crush. I play left back in real life so I have a defensive mentality.
