    Haha that was my first thought...revenge time :pierre:

    Tbf it wasn't even my team in the last one, I can forgive you. Not sure if i'll get the chance for fake revenge anyway, looks like we'll be having a re-run. Probably end up playing each other anyway though
    You're probably right. On paper, it looks like it'd be a good match-up between us.


    Joaquin though, what a player

    Your team is annoying...can't work out what system you'll play

    So with the replacements picked are we good to go? :ninja:

    I feel like the team I'm going for at the moment is too attacking

    Jeez, my bad, stopped looking at the teams.

    Can I choose who I take out of the two or do I have to swap Farfan?
    farfan because you chose him last

    Haha, I just realised that me and VQG got drawn together for the third time in the first round again.
    Can't help avoiding each other Good luck

    We probably should quote everyone so they know exactly who they're playing, and when they've got to complete their match by.

    With all these new picks needed I think the old draw has to be put down as a trial run. Make sure the teams are sorted and then make the actual draw and sort the schedule out from there. Shame...I was quietly confident (sorry K+K )

    Who are we playing? I'm confused. A second draw was done as some people had to replace their last pick, but it was done before anybody had done that. Has the real draw happened?

    The draw did happen but because some rules were broken we need to do one again which will happen once welsh lepracaun makes his pick

    I thought it was official as it was put in the OP, but it's best to do it again.

    Just realised why I struggled to work out your team...I saw Adriano and thought fullback...not the striker :facepalm2:

    I thought you were a bit light up top



    Had a quick glance and I reckon all the picks are legit now. When can we name players we can't believe weren't picked? :ninja:

    Adebayor. Had a very short peak but in 07-08 he had a better goal return than some of the strikers picked, and his game was more complete too. I suppose his current form put people off but can't help thinking he'd improve a lot of sides.

    I also spent the 2nd half of the draft being absolutely stunned that no one could find a place for Carrick in their side. Was only as my 12th pick approached that I actually checked when his debut was :facepalm2:

    I only remembered Riera during Madrid-Gala. Would've been a good pick if you wanted a wing back.

    A wildcard but Dede from Vasco da Gama is a very good CB.

    Giuseppe Rossi is another striker who probably should have been picked, his peak just before his injury problems started was incredible.

    Surprised that Arshavin didn't go as a Wildcard pick tbh. He was sensational at the Euros. World class on his day.
