  1. 2021 Sheep Draft

    Gratuitous, hurtful and unnecesary Bepo :nono: Submitted two minutes ago :angel:
  2. Most Disappointing Result In A Football Match Not Involving A Team You Support

    That's another good one. A relatively rare experience for a neutral where I desperately wanted the underdog to lose.
  3. Most Disappointing Result In A Football Match Not Involving A Team You Support

    Aye, that one was oddly crushing for me too. Ultimate for me will always be Italy Vs Brazil 1994 WC Final, as I was emotionally ruined as a kid by watching Baggio missing the decisive penalty. Interesting reading the number of people mentioning France Vs Italy 2006 and realising to my dismay...
  4. 2021 Sheep Draft R1 - Skizzo vs. Sjor Bepo

    How was he defensively? I thought he looked exceptional as a wide midfieler on the few times I saw him and have zero memory of his defensive game. Thought @Skizzo might have been going for a Zona Mista - sub Cuper with a decent stopper and field a specialist DM instead of Rakatic and it looks...
  5. Match Compilations

    Feels dirty posting this one right below the Keane/Robbo double-whammy served up by Joga, but Dalgish vs Spurs in a 7-0 thrashing dished out by Liverpool. Quite short as it's from extended ighlights rather than full match, but a decent glimpse of Dalglish's skill-set, as he started at CF (until...
  6. 2021 Sheep Draft R1 - Pat_Mustard vs. Sjor Bepo

    Finally got around to putting together some video of Dalglish. He started this match as the line leader for Liverpool with the winger Heighway playing off him, then when the injured Emlyn Hughes was replaced by the CF David Johnson (3:30 in the video) he started dropping off more into the second...
  7. 2021 Sheep Draft R1 - Pat_Mustard vs. Sjor Bepo

    Thanks mate and good luck in your next match :). Was an enjoyable match thread. I do see your argument here mate - there's a clarity and simplicity to having a specialist holder that is appealing, particularly when you factor in the (highly welcome) complication of Passarella moving forward at...
  8. 2021 Sheep Draft R1 - Pat_Mustard vs. Sjor Bepo

    Understood, absolutely. I used your post to address the more general criticisms of Dalglish but your point is well-taken. It's been a great draft, but the downside of anything so GOAT-centric is that anything outside the norm is that much harder to pull off. Ideally, I'd have nabbed one of those...
  9. 2021 Sheep Draft R1 - Pat_Mustard vs. Sjor Bepo

    Aye, I was somewhat testing the waters here due to the lack of a compelling alternative in my squad but it hasn't been particularly well-received. I haven't mounted any sort of argument whatsover for him though so I'll see if the tide of opinion turns if I can make a decent case. The dear...
  10. 2021 Sheep Draft R1 - Pat_Mustard vs. Sjor Bepo

    :lol: Aye, Bepo's team would be an utter pain in the arse to play against, no question. Mad bastard has always been true to his ethos of prioritising hard workers and modern players even when it's going to cost him votes so it's nice to see him nail a proper Sjor team here. On Xavi - first and...
  11. 2021 Sheep Draft R1 - Pat_Mustard vs. Sjor Bepo

    :lol: Definitely flattered rather than offended. I would have been happy sticking with my planned Vierchowod/Dario Pereyra CB partnership in fairness, but I got lucky in that my set up was an inadvertantly good environment for Passarella - relatively defensive LB, rugged stopper-type CB partner...
  12. 2021 Sheep Draft R1 - Pat_Mustard vs. Sjor Bepo

    :lol: Thanks man, good luck to you too!
  13. Mike's 2021 Sheep draft: Enigma vs P-Nut

    No, his GK was the sheep.
  14. Mike's 2021 Sheep draft: Ecstatic vs Chester

    That was the clincher for me too. Ecstatic's squad looks tailor-made for an Xmas Tree or suchlike though if he manages to add a more orthodox attacking LB.
  15. Mike's 2021 Sheep draft: Enigma vs P-Nut

    :lol: Aye, I loved what Pnut did here with the formation and use of Park, but fielding a sheep was always going to be a tough obstacle to overcome against this opposition.
