Unless you see Simeone as a DM sitting in front of a back four which is not where he is best utilised.
Anyhow, clearly a case of misreading. I thought he could possibly last the 30 pick round on the back of people disliking him/Becks red card precedent, etc. (as you say, him not being people's fantasy) but was worried that 1. he made a lot of sense in your midfield, more so than anyone else I could think of, 2. Crustanoid downloaded CM from those days and he was insanely good there (maybe that was 00/01 though, straight after Lazio's double).
I'll just cross my fingers my next 2 picks don't go now.
Yea, I thought you meant why I opted for Petit instead of Simeone. I have one player in mind at the moment. Let's see if he'll make it.
I got that CM as well. Didn't help me at all. Guess my research was good enough. I have an excel sheet with all the good players I could find and the best I bolded. Not many bold midfielders left.
