Sorry lads I’ve had a bit of a fuck up with this. There’s no way I can commit now with the week I have ahead.

Really sorry, hope it doesn’t mess up the numbers. I’d completely forgot I’d signed up.

I am well, my friend, as I hope you are too? I have ventured back to RAWK, albeit on a strictly limited basis, after an invite from Mikey, to which I was delighted to accept. I will say no more  ;)

Trend asked me if I'd sub in for Titi. Won't be around much this week and I may miss the odd pick, but I don't mind helping to make up the numbers  :)

Made my two catch up picks. Hope that's okay  :wave

And AC Milan are the first side off the board. I’ve put a line through them on the first post in the selection thread.

Really surprised no picked up the Garrincha reserve straight after.

Guys, I'll do my pick now. The thing is I have to travel for an hour or two everyday where I don't have access & then I'd be cut off from 8 to 10 PM due to my timezone. Will try my best to fit my picks in within the rest of the hours.

You can thank Betty Blue for that.  Smart actually.

By selecting AC Milan and not say Sampdoria, he makes the defender pool much weaker (knowing Maldini played his whole career at AC Milan).   As soon as Seedorf was taken, the gambit was going to be done to someone :)

Sorry DeFacto --- dem da rules.

I don’t know if picking Ronaldinho with the Milan option, having a ton of other options (including playing for both Fla and Flu) is either a major blunder or a master stroke. Guess we’ll find out.
