Yes, you could pick Mane for Southampton, but he would also be judged (hopefully) just on his time there and not on his overall career. Salah would be unavailable for selection as a Chelsea player because he doesn't meet the criteria of 50 appearances minimum.

Thanks mate. Would be a bit concerning that people would voting for their peak but still down for it :)

I can have a go, Got some heavy shifts, but can always leave a pick with someone if I cant post.

Serie A seems a distant memory for me, but after a bit of research i'm sure the names will come flooding back. The champ man years should help too  :D

Even though I adore Serie A and would love to flex my hipster muscles, the truth is I don't know it as well as I do the PL where I just know off the top of my head that (eg) McAllister played for Liverpool, Leeds, and Coventry. That means wiki-ing who every single player has played for, which is fun if you have the time. But I have a bunch of work deadlines to clear, so I can enjoy Xmas on my sofa  :D

Open it up to be a Europe minus the prem draft, should mean less effort.

Effort is part of the fun. Right now, I'm just checking how many games Colonel Gadaffi's son played in Italy.

Look, I have a Tom Hiddleston Loki tattoo and a Loki Christmas jumper. No one else is claiming him when the time comes.

Well, since you put it that way I'll be the gentleman and step aside. I drafted him last time out anyway. Can't believe I got him in round 2.

Thank you. I also have a Jeff Goldblum Grandmaster tattoo, so hands off him as well.

Still looking for the Christmas jumper mind.

1992-2008? 11 from 11 Football Italia Draft - 11 players from 11 different clubs, 50 caps minimum (no loanees), players judged by form at club you picked them at rather that overall career.

Is this where we are at? :D

Who is in? I count Samie and Betty in obviously. Lastrador? Draex?

Can we have a rule they played 50 games if injuries permitted? Got my eye on a DM I might be considering.

How come no loan spells? If you've played 50 games, loaned or otherwise, then that should be enough no?
