I think we go with this. Away until this evening. Have fun

And treat those two imposters just the same

Is Essien wasted slightly in a holding role?

Was Lauren as good as we think he is or was he just at Arsenal at the right time? No strong opinion either way on that one, just asking for the sake of debate!

Yep, swerved him for this reason.

I like the versions of their team with both Essien & Vidal in midfield though. Neither of them is a classic holding midfielder, but they offer enough defensively between them while also being able to contribute in attack.

Not for the first time, Dutch legend Frank Rijkaard has been caught on camera spitting on another player. This time instead of Rudi Voller, it was Southampton legend Francis Benali recently flown in after the confusion of him being drafted into the Dream Team. As you can see from our exclusive footage below, Francis was none too pleased.





This has resulted in Rijkaard being banned from the Dutch national team. Further to this, for crimes against drafting, Johan Neeskens has been removed from the line-up. He is not and never has been a right winger. Claus will now have to make two new selections for his team.

So bloody what? If you watch football to be absolutely miserable then go watch cricket.

There's no doubt I'll be out in the first round but this has been most enjoyable ;D

Can't wait for Claus to get on and see what's happened to his team

Betts how do we know Johan's political leanings? He very well could've been a right winger.

Yep, incredible player, but in no way a Klopp player. He needs to play in a more patient probing side. Basically 2006 Italy with a Gatusso or De Rossi beside him to do the heavy lifting.
If only we had a player like Benetti in there alongside him to do the heavy lifting...

Oh wait...

Could've put Captain Bertorelli in there instead of Benetti and none of us would've been the wiser.

I would have thought Edgar Davids and Royston Drenthe would be the obvious replacements for Claus.

It's the same issue I've had with you lot in the past.  Questioning players like Paco Gento, Konoplywho?ka and Badger Cull

It's not my fault none of you have the depth of knowledge of world football players from yesteryear as I have (by depth of knowledge, I mean Google).
