I was never in for a striker. So many good strikers left in the pool to pick later. I knew no one would go Cruyff, so got cocky leaving him for round 2. But then as I said before, letting you pick Romario would have ended the draft as a competition and a block was necessary considering everyone else had a striker.
Makes sense.

Next pick sent.

Here.... Although, it's already accepted.

It is clearly Franz Beckenbauer in his German shirt wearing number 5 with a captain's armband. It is Handheld electronic game from feckin 1979. Handhold electronic game is a very small, portable device for playing interactive electronic game, a miniaturized version of video game.

I would find him even if I had to do my own video game. Now, leave me be.

That's an awesome find.

Hmm...an expansion pack isn't a video game.

And, no - that clearly can't be called a "cover".

Oh well - got away with it, case closed.

A never-nude? I thought he just liked cut-offs.

:lol::lol: That's a genius bit of research. Also, that dodgy Batistuta pick never would have stood in our well-oiled machine of a draft :wenger:

Lula Batistuta, Konima, WE7FE NEXT VERSION :lol:
Looks legit.
DVD game :lol: I've seen these types of covers and are bootleg versions.

Well it's on the market, definitely a cover and a dvd game, so I think no less legit than some of the other type of distributors.. :)

Game Affair and Konima stamps on it too..

Besides, the criteria has this in it:

Pick a player that has appeared on the cover of a video game.
Bootleg or not it's a video game sold on the market so should be validated, as the criteria doesn't say it has to be an official distributor or whatever.

I remember the good old days when Sjor counted every hair on Desailly's chest before approving/rejecting picks. Now that was dedicated cross verification.

I always send credible sources when I make my picks and usually check everything up to avoid dodgy picks.

One of the very rare occasions that I jumped on the gun here without looking for an official source and that backfired, of course.

For the manager and Garrincha pick I even got a source from Selecao Brasileira book that has the full squads/managers and opposition teams during their entire history because they overlapped for a very short amount of span.

https://books.google.bg/books?id=e7Jrej-ddv8C&pg=PA138&lpg=PA138&dq=garrincha+osvaldo+brandao&source=bl&ots=ADRHEpkqfo&sig=ACfU3U3ilywNR0KLIzeguTeTvmv_GcehDw&hl=bg&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjl_pr07fjmAhVM06YKHTHxA0oQ6AEwC3oECAUQAQ#v=onepage&q=garrincha osvaldo brandao&f=false

for anyone interested ^^. It's a good book in terms of stats.

No need to justify. I would have tried as well. It's Michael I am pissed with. Mostly for Cruyff. That 1974 FIFA picture could have been identified as a fake even by an amateur :lol:

Aye, picking Cruyff from the off would avoided all issues and made everyone happy. :D Bar Edgar of course.

Maybe but you’ve had about 3 days to find it ffs :lol:
Naming the game was rather request, not a requirement :angel:

Didn't want to spoil it with the most dodgy pick in the round as all criteria and draft has been excellent so far.

2nd pick sent. This round will be carnage, considering many need players in same positions..

Mr. Brexit is the king of the first round.
King of the low-risk approach too - which could end up feckin' me over. Lots of GOATs in these squads.

Anyway - GSTQ is more of a Brexiter than me (granted, two of his Brexit boys are sheep).

Mustard is also worse than me if you include players who weren't British (but Irish and very much associated with the English league).

Biggest regret: I could have picked up Beckenbauer easily if I hadn't gone for the safe option.

Arguably, Beckenbauer and Franklin wouldn't have been an ideal combo at the back - but obviously, Beckenbauer ffs.

I haven't done more than few mins research per round....and it shows in how many sheep I have. Probably better if I had skipped it.

At least I managed to screw up one poster, so worth it. Am happy.
Sometimes the most obvious picks go through, but seeing Chester the sensible approach is probably the best in terms of having a quality distributed in each position.

You could've gotten Beckenbauer back in the manager's round.

Mind boggling no one went for the best and most obvious option - Lattek and Beckenbauer/Maradona.

Could've also got Maradona and Messi in the manager round too (although i'm sure someone would've made the argument that they couldn't play together!). :lol: :houllier:
