Going to get close to the XI:s being completed tonight! Amazing. Hopefully people are for some pre-game wildcard drafting tomorrow and we might just seal the deal and me being able to start simulating on Thursday  ;D

Basically now unless the offline guys show up:

Until 11.00 UK time: Red Viper's pick.
11.00 UK time: KillieRed has promised to deliver his pick to me.
11.00 UK time: Max_powers
Very latest 12.00 UK time: Gerry Attrick (has delivered pick to me).
12.00 Mikey_LFC has sent me his.
Then me and I forward it to Trend and then bed!

Optimistic planning? Sure.

Fuck it, let's go  ;D

He's on my (mental) list and has been sent a PM but he has his hour now and the schedule starts after that one has passed don't worry  :) The derby is the main reason I'm trying to get as far as possible tonight.

Aberdeen right now:

Maicon Mexès Chiellini Evra

Diarra

Hamsík Kaká

Pato Zárate

Agüero

Average age: 24.4

Great stuff. Mbia is more of a CB/CM than a RB though but you have three more picks so it's all good  ;) He's a good utility squad player regardless!

I'll check.

DR 5/20!

Natural DM, lime green CB and CM. I do think Hamilton play with a DM though so you're probably going to be alright and I assume he's easily re-trained into CB or CM though. Marseille's RB at the time was Laurent Bonnart.

His natural position is in your team and you have three to go  ;D If you want to change it you and Trend will do after the 14th pick like agreed! He's booting Bonucci all the way back into orbit of course.

I'm afraid the only gem that dross had was James Fucking McArthur. The most frustrating player I've ever had on FM (signed him to Aberdeen once). Creative as fuck except too slow to hold on to the thing  ;D Oh and the madlad Tomás Cerný in goal too. He's ridiculous with 20/17 in reflexes and positioning but is literally slower than a grandma when he gets off his line. Still, the SPL teams can't crack that side of his game since they have no creativity and usually those guys just pump long shots at him all day. I've gone crazy more than once 0-0 ing him with shite attackers.

Is the dyke-jumper McCarthy in the squad too?

McCarthy was just off to Wigan that summer. The McCarthy/McArthur pairing with Cerný in goal would've been something to build on though!

Sokratis gives me happy memories on FM: I got him to Cardiff for 15 mil from Genoa, used him up for three years of dominating English football, him being extremely competent and then fooled Atlético into paying 32 mil for him at 32 when his decline just had begun ;D Thanks to Max for invoking the good old days of last winter.

Akinfeev

Alves Barzagli Toprak Lahm

Hazard Kroos Veloso Ribery

Neymar Eto'o


Got a great pick in mind for the wildcards, so if none of you could steal him that'd be smashing.

The part I like about your squad is that it's flexible. Neymar is good as an AM, Alves can play RM, Hazard CAM and CM, Ribéry either wing, Lahm both sides. Given their manager occasionally dribbles around with 3-5-2 a minority of the time you've chosen well has to be said.

I wonder who the captain will be  ;D Kaká speaks English in the game too so he might nick it from Mark Kerr.

By SPL standards not bad, but not the Bamba who took up Cardiff to the EPL. The best player for a prospect you have is David Wotherspoon though, he has potential to be a 2-star player or so. Really handy in Scottish football.

I have to say we've been rather unbiased.

Undrafted:

Carragher (wow)
Fábio Aurélio
Insúa
Skrtel
Lucas
Aquilani
Benayoun
Maxi Rodríguez
Riera
Babel
Kuyt
Ngog

Maybe people have bad memories  ;D With all due respect, to think we've gone from Skrtel to van Dijk and Babel to Mané? Yikes.

Carragher was getting on at that time. I think Insua is probably a good pick. Seems like the kind of player that would have potential in these games.

He forces the team to sit deep away from home because he was slow. Besides that he was still good the first two years or so, especially as a mentor to the younger CB's.
