Exactly... and there is a drop off I think between the best 1990's players and those who had a good half decade but were fantastic players.  We'll see, but this is no easy draft

Seems to be a dearth of top quality attacking players, I had like 2 to choose from when I made my pick.

I've always seen the 90s as a weird decade. Some outstanding and memorable players, but also filled with a big drop in standard. It seemed to be the decade alot of great players came towards the end of their careers, and a lot of great players started their careers, with obvious exceptions that are the stand outs.
We already have shit in the country, and the game of Liverpool fills life with joy. Thanks

If there is no pick from Xabiart by tonight I'll throw some picks in, and he can either take over or team up with me.

Don't want to leave it too long.

Agreed and once we move past the obvious picks the debates will start heavily. Not to mention some of the best players in that decade are draft poison for obvious reasons.

I think if someone shone brightly for half a decade and meets the criteria then it’s perfectly fine to include them. If we only valued those who gave reliable service for the full decade then we’d end up with a team of Jason Dodds.

Last three picks come in a flurry ---

Well out lads.   Zanetti, Desailly, and Weah

Much of the 90's was dominated by Italian football in terms of where world class players played in that time.

I had Weah as my next option as a striker so again that decision was taken away from me! Definitely one of the best of the era though, good pick.

I trust Paddy Vieira is acceptable to you all?

Yeah of course but think that show will still have an influence on a number of picks. It will for me anyway :P

Why not, he played 5 seasons for Arsenal in the 90's, he was good at that time as well

Should have seen the PM that Eel Lobo sent me ---- your next (mistake/fuck up) pick

Still laughing about it --->  I sent him the retort, much less salient that he better pray to the God of Dusan Tadic if he wants votes for me....

I remember watching that on the tv in between playing football in the garden with my brother. Classic sunny English evening. Two big name sides, good memories (although was it a game that didn’t live up to the billing?).

Yes, it was a bit drab. I can remember Stoickov hitting the post and Vialli giving Koeman some trouble but that's about it.
