    Simon Rolfes, Bayer Leverkusen

    He was a beast back in 2007-2008.
    A good choice. He was going to be my second defensive midfielder, but I really didn't want two box-to-box defensive mids with Khedira also on my team so went for Gargano. He also a great leader and I felt he deserved a few more international caps imo. Also, would have slotted in with my german spine of Hummels, Howedes, Ozil and Khedira.

    I am surprised that this player hasn't gone and I think his versatility to play anywhere in midfield will be useful so I will go for Toni Kroos

    Do you have cant_think_of_name pick?

    I picked him I thought of an awesome attacking mid.
    I have feeling I may know who that is.

    Very versatile player however, I think it's because everyone wasn't eligible to pick him after choosing the obvious quality players of Bayern.

    Would have definitely picked him over Muller though.

    Well that worked in my favour I guess. It will allow me to pick a few different formations and I think he is better than one or two of the other Bayern picks imo.

    If it weren't for injuries and if he kept up his performances after 2008, he probably would have lots more caps. I suppose his loss was Germany's gain because his absence meant Khedira could get more opportunities.

    I would have picked another DM but Gustavo was taken a few turns ago and the other one I wanted I couldn't get because I already have a player from his team.

    Was also considering Kroos but Sneijder basically made him a worthless choice. Kroos sucks as a defensive midfielder most of the time.

    The better players I was implying all play in wider/defensive positions anyway, so Kroos will definitley be a stand out player depending on where in your formation you utilise him. Does that make sense, I felt rather confused typing that lol.

    I think with Lars Bender and the other defensive mids coming through at Leverkusen, he will slowly be fazed out even though he is captain.
    If I drop Kroos back, he would more likely be a defensive playmaker as his vision and long passing accuracy would be useful and with Gargano, more of a destroyer, it could work.

    I have a couple of formations in mind that could work.

    So it's official. Samir Nasri along with a whole lot of other wildcards are being left unpicked. Unless me or Samiz play with a rush-goalie.
    Can we start naming some wildcard picks that people haven't thought of then?

    I don't mind at all tbh, Kenan and Kel will be getting a keeper and I will be getting a left winger. So we could name other position maybe? Unless Kenan and Kel is playing rush back keepers,

    Well I am happy to name players if you want as I already know who I am going to pick and he isn't a keeper. Also, I won't name any Keepers if you want.

    Fair enough, there are a couple of decent (ex)/Bayern players still left. I don't think Kroos is better than Ozil as a CAM but I think he could play as a deep playmaker due to his vision and long passing accuracy and I think in the future if he remains at Bayern he will be converted into a Schweingsteiger esq role.

    Don't start naming any wild cards or anyone yet. You can still pick them as your 12th pick no? Just can't be in your starting XI with another WC.

    Back when I took Wilshere (5th pick I think) I had a quick Wilshere vs Kroos debate. Took Wilshere because he's much better in a deeper role, Kroos and Kaka would struggle to play in the same side effectively, but Kroos lasting this long is ridiculous. Not like there aren't any sides with no Bayern players either.

    Righty ho then, I'm going to take Diego. Played all over the place, Juventus, Wolfsburg, Santos - currently on loan at Atltico Madrid. But he counts as a Werder Bremen player
