    No way Huntelaar would have lasted this long if his club wasn't a wildcard pick. If his team was Schalke, he would have gone a few rounds ago, I guess people just were reluctant to use their wildcard.

    Still a lot of great strikers out there too (not that I'm going to pick any).

    They're a stand-alone club so I think he's off limits. Would have gone ages ago otherwise.
    Yeah that's what i said when he PMed me but i told him to ask it on the draft just in case

    Could you (and others) just quote people in the same post you make your pick? Would make things a lot tidier. :ta:
    sorry but i'll do that from now on

    Good pick considering how old the good goalkeepers are but hopefully i'll be able to get a good one too (i have a couple in mind)

    I wasn't going to pick him either because of that but decided on going for him because i wanted a good striker and he was a godd wildcard pick - i had a few other strikers on my mind but he was the best

    Yeah, many of the last decades best keepers were playing before 2000, but there are a few decent ones available. I thought I'd get in early whilst I had pick of the bunch.

    good idea - i might pick a goalkeeper in my next two goes but tbh at their best goalkeepers aren't going to make massive mistakes - i have two in mind who hopefully won't go by the time i get to picking them

    I considered him but felt that because of his failings at Real and AC, people won't look too kindly at him.

    He's judged at his best though and he was great for ajax and schalke

    Also the same could have been said about kaka but.....

    You can PM me your pick as you are after me and I can slot them in one after another.

    There are a fair few decent keepers left still if you don't consider the larger clubs but Valdes is still a solid choice.

    Pretty clever choice due to his versatility as he can play anywhere across the back so that could be important for your formation.

    Well atleast PM someone as the game can keep moving if you know your going to be off for a long period of time.

    I know I shouldn't gloat but I do like Neuer

    Yeah I'm off to sleep now probs for about 9/10 hours so sorry if I'm holding the game up! You'll find out who I'm after soon enough

    I was genuinely trying to keep the game moving as it is frustrating when you are waiting so long for your turn. Well, I'll quote you and Abiraleft if I get my go today. Btw I feel that you be looking for a forward as you were frustrated when someone earlier got one.

    There are yeah, I had about 4 in mind that I wouldn't have minded having, plus a couple more if people were willing to use their wildcard on a goalkeeper. In the last draft I was the last person to pick one and luckily it wasn't too difficult, but this time around I can't really think of 16 top quality keepers that meet the criteria.

    You have two picks before my next one so I could post yours if you wanted. Now that i'm back home I have plenty of spare time, so I could keep an eye out for when it's your go.

    It is part of the reason I have left my wildcard as I have no idea where I should strengthen and what I should leave free.
