Right, the simple rules of the 4 of Clubs draft is that your Starting XI has to have representatives of all 4 clubs in there and said players career at the club and what they won is judged.

It's a first come first take basis.

If a player you want played for more than one of those clubs then you pick which version you're picking and that's what we judge him on.  I.E if you pick Ronaldo of Real Madrid over Inter Milan's version we judge him on his time at Real Madrid.

No more than 3 players per team.

To be honest for those series of drafts we did. I'm sure you were involved in those. It's called 4 of Clubs. It's sequels were 5 and 6 of Clubs.  ;D

Well if so that's easy for the big name players for the big name clubs. will be interesting to see if people take into account players individual careers at the lesser clubs

Yep, much better to choose more hipster clubs like Lazio for this.

In any case, PSV, Valencia, Arsenal AND Dortmund were all in the 6 of clubs draft  :D

Right mate, I thought the drafter would pick four out of a larger group of teams for your XI but then again my custom title in Welsh is that I'm a silly fool so makes sense I misunderstood that concept so removed that post from existence unless someone was too quick on the screenshot button ;D

Okay then. My suggestion would be four clubs of perennial near-missers, four countries, no Ingurland in sight:

Dortmund
Lazio
Marseille
Valencia

We've done 3 out of 4 of those already. Lazio is a good one though. I'd maybe go 5 of clubs instead and go for some weaker clubs this time. Some variation of these -

Lazio/Parma
Deportivo/Sevilla
Leeds/Spurs/Everton (lol)
Monaco/Lyon/Boardeaux
Leverkusen

Could also consider Sporting Lisbon (Benfica could be problematic with Eusebio there), Celtic or Rangers, and Feyenoord.

I think Benfica works well, lots of quality players have spent time there. Obviously a problem there is that people's perceptions of Ederson, Dias and Di MarŪa on one end and Lazar Markovic on the other have been shaped by their post-Benfica careers though.

Lazio seems like a slam dunk without any true global legends but plenty of shining jewels.

Monaco would be a cool choice on your list, as would Sevilla.

Eusebio though. Major advantage to first pick.

Eusťbio cheese clause? Il questo formaggio e non mangiabile, basta!

Otherwise I was thinking about a Rome-Naples draft sometime, maybe we could have a four with those three clubs and Fiorentina to make Lastrador and Drinks Sangria shoe-ins for participation? ;D

I was also thinking an Italian hipster four of clubs edition would be fun. Roma, Lazio, Fiorentina, and Napoli would be tasty!

Nah. Italian clubs are kinda overdone. People pick players from these clubs in all the drafts anyways. Maradonna, Batistuta, Conti, Veron we have seen the lot.

A german version would be fun.

Maybe a German one that excludes Bayern, BMG, Dortmund and Hamburg.

Maybe Leverkusen, Schlake, Werder Bremen, Wolfsburg, Sttutgart and Kaiserslautern

I wasn't even thinking of those players. I want Casiraghi, Abel Balbo, Fonseca, and Jose Chamot  :D

I'd be up for a German edition though.

Schalke, Bremen, Wolfsburg and Stuttgart could be interesting but a little bit out of ideas at the end of those drafts.

For me Atlťtico, Sevilla, Valencia and Villarreal would be more fun instead. It's a bit more easy to judge them since they had more European success. Also some proper hipster icons (I'm looking at you Riquelme) in those teams :D

Pfft too easy  ;D

I do believe the overachiever draft, the combination of:

Denmark
Portugal
Sweden
Uruguay

Would lead to the most interesting of those drafts. The smallest countries to have either won the World Cup, taken home three medals or won the Euros. In fact, that'd probably be a really good field to deal with considering the four countries just top about 28 million people together!
