How am I losing this?

Ibarra I only know from FM. Even there he was so mediocre. Imagine him vs Rivaldo and Krol.
He may not be a sexy pick but he's won every trophy with boca that boca could possibly win. Every trophy. a genuine legend for the club. Happy to have got a bonafide one from that storied club!

Anyway hard luck mate. I know i have your vote in the next round ;)

You not winning this draft after perfect execution throughout the draft would be one of the great draft injustices.
Nah. Great team though. Started off superb with the fullbacks. From there on you've got to focus on atleast 3 in the middle. He then opted to overload his forward line when it wasn't exactly needed with those fullbacks and left his midfield light. I don't think he was helped by leaving serie a top scorer as his final pick. He had no choice but to pick a forward player and couldn't beef out his midfield with it.  Perfect execution? no. Great team though and i doff me cap to a worthy competitor

Max was robbed. Very close between he and Lobo for the best side.

Lobo has one of the best right backs in recent times hamhocked in at left back. You do see that don't you??

If anyone got robbed here, it's Trend. He hammered Lobos team earlier on in the draft !

He's had about 2 good games for us since he has been here.

I'm sure he's played there. He can do a job for sure. I'm sure he could thread the boards at the Gate theatre aswell but that wouldn't suddenly make him Nicolas Cage now. A jack of some trades, but this jack was a master at one

LMM was always the big favourite in this draft, one of the best teams ever put together. Would be a little embarrassed for him not to win it

;D i've probably just won my final. Can they scale two mountains in max and possibly yours. Gargantuan effort but If i can win a draft with iron anus, i can win a draft with Ibarra. Make dreams happen people... ( and punish the person with javier zanetti at left back...)

I sent Clausy my pens just in case - bet heís sleeping and will arise before game.


Good luck Lobo - either way LMM is the favorite 😝

Shevchenko shoots right - Gatti stays central - GOAL
Platini goes right - Palop dives to his right - GOAL

Trend 1-1 - Lobo

Stoichkov shoots left - Gatti goes to his left - GOAL
Socrates goes central - Palop stays central! - SAVE

Trend 2-1 Lobo

Cruyff shoots left - Gatti stays central - GOAL
Passarella shoots left - Palop dives right - SAVE

Trend 3-1 Lobo

Messi chips central - Gatti goes right GOAL

Trend wins!
Maybe the group, led by your leadership, will see these drafts as PR functions and brilliant use of humor

Hey Claus, fuck off.
