Honestly, I find it astonishing you are putting an appearance minimum in and ruling out Premierleague legend Amir Zaki. Never mind.

Does Nabil El Zhar qualify?

Players judged how they were in PL

No minimum appearances

The flip is you need one per team, small twist granted!

If we're gonna pick players, some who are synonomous with one particular club, then we should have insured there was a stipulation to guarantee he represented them.

You can choose the club they played for (hence Salah for Chelsea - obviously he thrived at LFC but it's a loophole and all drafts have loop holes).

It's the same for everyone.

We're judging on their time in the PL, not at a specific club, so he's gets our version of Mo.

We're drafting players, not how they did at one particular club. I think Tremenderson should make the players selected and the clubs for each drafter in separate lists to avoid confusion and people voting on Salah's Chelsea time et cetera.

I'm sure Lastrador will change his team to LFC for Salah if people would rather players were picked with the club they thrived most with in the PL.

We've just started so if that's case do that.

I'm easy either way.

Makes more sense maybe if not a min appearance thing, then if a player has played for two teams, the team he has the most appearances for is the team he would be picked for

Because once you pick from that club you can't have any more from them. So while Salah is fantastic, Labrador now can't pick Torben Piechnik. It creates a bit of strategy. A round 16 Liverpool player would be a hell of a lot better than a West Ham one for example.

There should be no rules on that. If a player appeared for a club in the Prem, he's available for that club and should be considered for their PL career. At this point it's diluted to the point where it might as well be a soup. Let us choose tactics freely :wave

I will still persist in asking for separate clubs and players list so any voters will have to research that themselves to avoid any such problems as in 'he sucked at that club therefore booooooh' ;D

It's not about them sucking at other clubs but about them getting picked for clubs they rarely got picked for in real life!!

The totally football show had a little discussion on how Salah is the nearest thing to Henry we have seen, and those first 2 picks backs that up.

Drafts are always very much "in the moment", but Salah is so deserving of that number 1 pick.
