Iniesta has a surprise on his arrival, he paid for the extra luggage on his Ryanair flight bringing Gerard Piqué with him to the capital. Sad at the prospect of not being able to play with the majestic imp, he tagged along fearing he’d be green and white with envy. The move has certainly piqued the interest of the locals as season ticket sales soared.

Nah, you forget this is 2009 and one scotswoman has just risen to fame. In this alternate reality Shakira is yesterday’s news. Piqué is about to dream a new dream with Susan Boyle.

Agreed, everyone who didn't pick Essien in particular.
Maybe the group, led by your leadership, will see these drafts as PR functions and brilliant use of humor

I don't know how much I should comment on Otamendi so to not influence future picks  ;D He's good though. His potential is 3.5 or 4 over a few years but is not necessarily the easiest to coach. With AI coaches, they might fall for that.

Essien was an outright monster in the game. The one weakness = mid-season Afcon without much cover for a club like yours  :-X

Yup, game potential about 3 and 3.5 at best with excellent coaching. Very good player, but against these players it'll take something special. I've been tempted to try Leverkusen lately and I might be able to do something good with him. That being said, I've lacked motivation to play myself hence this draft idea to get me going again  ;D

For 72 out of every 76 league games and for every Champions League game you have a 4.5-level box to boxer though. Great pick in general, but I'd fancied him more for an Old Firm team that has depth.

Had Alves lined up stolen from underneath me so changed tact.

Welcome Mario Gomez. One of the best goal scorers in Europe in 2009, now fed by the best attacking midfielder in Europe. Who could pass up that opportunity!

We're going so long as the guy who should pick doesn't fall asleep and when that happens that's called quits until tomorrow morning European time. It's 10.17 pm in Liverpool right now.

JSteve hasn't been on for two hours but we'll need to wait overnight for him if he doesn't show up. Really good yield to complete three rounds in one day :champ

I can't see any difference between your picks in this and your picks in the America Dream  ;D  At least you've got them in the right decade now.

Has origins in all three but let's just say he is 3 years old, has a voice, and knows how to use it.

Dude is potty training so I guess he's entitled to taking a piss now and again.
