I thought you were going to go for Vieri on this pick and try to get Aimar/AN Other on your next. That said, Aimar's a serious vote winner for me. I really believe that if injuries had been slightly kinder to him and if he'd been born a decade or so earlier he'd have been seen as one of the greats of his generation.
