    he'll take over completely. If my name is on as AM he'll have to start with a -1 vote deficit from Cal which would be unfair

    Can't believe Batigol and Nedved made it back to Enigma. Was close to picking Bati.

    aye, was a nice surprise. Especially with van Basten and Fenomeno blocked. Won feck all but 2 Copa's and doesn't clash with many players.

    Your midfield combo is probably the best in the pool tho. :drool:

    True but Nedved takes out all the 70s players regardless of when he gets picked.

    I went with voronin over some of the others because he blocks almost nobody. He has also not won World Cup and European cup so even that is still open. Thought about Yashin too but chose voronin instead

    Why weren't the Euros were set to a limit of 2 as well?
    Kind of unfair to the South American players with Copa America being limited to 2.

    Indeed, but you already picked Zidane and considering Nedved hasn't won CL and WC it was an easy pick. I got a second option (still unpicked) who I was mulling over which was of the same class, but Nedved also brings more tactical flexibility being able to operate on both wings and even centrally. Also Czech and all...
    Both Robson and Voronin were on my shortlist if Batigol/Nedved didn't make it to me. Smart two choices. Your team, along with couple of others is pretty easy to upgrade.

    There is a EC/CL limit and no limit on Copa Libertadores winners though, so it kinda balances things out

    Yeah, sorry I meant Pnut if he was going for a Yashin/Nedved double rather than yourself.

    Voronin was a superb pick given the restrictions. Would have loved to get him myself but there was no way I could resist Romario given that I was well placed in the drafting order for a shiny first pick and that several of the other GOAT No 9s were blocked.

    Not sure if this draft is managed by EAP or LVG.
    The tempo has been irritatingly slow today.

    Hmm, I expected this to be a bit slower as every picks needs to be considered in detail...but not this slow.

    @Gio

    @Charly @Pat_Mustard @Brwned PM me with 2 options each please.
