Who is the 5th Real pick? I can only see Zidane, Di Stefano, Laudrup and Cannavaro.

Edit: NVM just noticed Puskas.

I have a meeting in 2 hours time, and I'll be away for an hour or so. So if it ends up being my turn by then, I'll send my pick to Trend

Sounds good mate!

You know you're going to be thinking about who you're going to pick next. That's what I would do.

Nice pick Betty!  No problem from where I am sitting --- you are getting a nice team there :)

Hey Mikey and BB?  Do we use the 1 hour time limit for VBG using DeFacto or BB (catch up picks) when looking at the posting (order or the last one posted?)

Tough decision there. Had pics lined up for Carlos Alberto! But decided to go for Dani Alves mostly because I want players I've never drafted before where possible and he's also fucking great.

Thank Fowler.  I was trying to decide to put my three year old son down for a nap and then post (giving you more time for your second pick) or waiting until the hour was up and diving right in.   I did the former. 

True story, Mikey helped me resolve an interesting fun fact about Alberto Carlos for the last two hours ---->  so Betty Blue I am in a deep debt of gratitude for not taking my Brazilian right back dude.

And the outside backs just keep coming!  Great pick Gerry.

Roberto Carlos
Carlos Alberto
Cafu

Three Four of Brazil's best.

Ahem, I meant Dani Alves too.... huuuuuuuge error :)

Obviously drafting comes first  ;)

To be honest, I almost picked him on this picture alone



Guessing you two were researching a game he'd played in the Derby for Flumi. Found this one myself -

I should probably focus on the criteria, but I prefer to live dangerously  :D

This is fantastic.   In looking at all of this old footage, I am struck by how damn talented so many were on the ball and how violent so many of the tackles were back then.   Serious freaking lunges in with studs, elbows, and any other hard part.  Crazy, but good to take in and remember.

Sheer’s pick but the last pick was just before 10pm GMT, so unless he picks that’ll be it until morning.

Nemanja Vidic is a bold choice. Especially when his kryptonite is still available.

Yeah, mate. Maybe I should pick him to solve that problem. Sorry for delay btw.

Rivellino is inspired choice mate...

Had him on my list, and thought I could do the double Alberto Carlos and him (Fla-Flu), but alas twas not to be .  Grateful it was a pick going the other way rather than right before.

Can I get a ruling on whether Figo counts as a local pick?  He was born in Almada, which is just a couple of miles from Lisbon.

Yeah having just been to Lisbon, that definitely counts!

Also gutted to miss out on Cafu, I actually saw him play in the Roma v Lazio derby when I was young.

Was a mad game, 2-0 Roma, but the Lazio fans rioted (they were pulling out the seats and chucking them - in their own ground).

We were sat on the barrier between the fans. There were bushes on fire all round the ground and we came out with burning red eyes after the police came in with tear gas to calm the Lazio fans.

I looked at him for that but research told me it was it’s own principality so swerved it.

Figo was my no.1 pick for right wing. That front four would've caused carnage, Jimmy Johnstone isn't a bad replacement though.

Yes, I would have thought he's not technically Lisbon born because Almada is a city itself. But I've never been to Lisbon, so I'm just going off wiki and google maps. If we go down this route then we need some kind of minimum mile radius for future disputes.

Yeah it'll be tricky with London players, do you stick to the area of London?  Lisbon isn't huge and Almada is a stone's throw away... plus Mikey ok'd it and he's the boss.

Actually, I can just use McGrain as my local pick if needed, so all good either way.

Yeah, it's fine. I'm not complaining. I'd just like to be clear on it for future picks that might throw this up. Helps me not discard players while researching too.
