Picking Burnley's 3rd best 'keeper is definitely the smart move to make ;D

Cheers, mate, I thought so too  :thumbup. Let's keep it to ourselves though

You mad bastards! I told you I was picking Alisson.

Anyway I'll be picking Rui Ratricio now instead so hands off unless you want the premier league scraps.

And another reminder I'll be picking Trent for my right back, let's try and prevent any more kamikaze action!

You’ll be pleased to hear I won’t be picking Rui, but do you want this when I’ve finished with it?

Interesting, I thought more would have picked Alisson...

He was the only pick for me in the top 6, but Trend/Chakan have managed to pick up the only other decent option imo, so fair play!

Who’s going to tell Claus he’s picked De Gea based on last season ;D

De Gea 18/19 played so well that legendary football mind Edwood Woodwood is about to make him the highest paid goalkeeper ever.

Exactly. All I'll say on the matter is that you either agree that Ed Woodwood is right to give De Gea 385k a week

OR

You'd rather he didn't.

The Equalizer wins again.

The mentality of this draft is intriguing.

Do you double down on your RB after the multiple Alissons?
Do you go conservative?
Do you go unorthodox or ringer?

Do you double down on your RB after the multiple Alissons?
Do you go conservative?
Do you go unorthodox or ringer?

Or do you block those who might want to pick up a free gem, casting the masses into the morass of midling and lower level muck?
Or do you just pony up your nutsack and say "I'll have Trent AA, you killed Barcelona with one pass; I must have you my precious?
Or do you take trip down average lane only to see at the end, you are floating on the Saltoned sea?


Questions, questions.   Jerseo Jerseo how I luv thee, let me count the ways!

9 down, 1 to go.

Happy to close the draft window earlier, ie when everyone has picked, if everyone is in agreement with this.

The idea of having literally every Premier League player in history available and choosing John Flanagan is so wild I didn't even consider it.
