Is that order right? And who did Woot take?

1. R4L - Lionel Messi
2. zach - Cristiano Ronaldo
3. comahan - Luis Suarez
4. Woot - ??
5. Rob - Neymar
6. SP - Sergio Aguero

Rob S
05-28-2015, 07:00 PM
Woot was #1. r4l was #4 and took Robben.

Woot
05-28-2015, 07:00 PM
woah I took Messi. I had the first pick.

comahan
05-28-2015, 07:02 PM
Woot went 1st and took Messi, i think it should be

1 woot / messi
2 zach / ronaldo
3 comahan / suarez
4 r4l / robben
5 rob / neymar
6 sp / aguero

Lets just let this thread be the team thread as well, we can all post our squads as we pick or at the end. Don't want to clutter the forum up too much.

He's so good. The 3 year stretch is big for him too.

The site is completely down now so not sure how likely it is R4L finds his way here.

Doesnt he have twitter?

Also, is the person who simmed the last soccer draft doing this one? Would be cool to do it again.

I don't have his twitter but if someone else does...

And what do you mean the last soccer draft? The soccer sim run by UK? I was actually thinking about doing one in a summer where I'm not doing anything but couldn't last year. Not sure about this summer but I would if I can and people are interested.

I'm probably going to be the asshole who holds up the draft next. I'll send a small list for the pick after this next one, but I'm about to pass out. Consequences of a wonky sleep schedule due to my weird work hours.

Send to me. Ill be on all day due to actually off today.

I obviously love Ronaldo and Neuer, but I think there are better options than Iniesta in CM.

I felt like with my next pick will probably surprise people, but Iniesta will still be 30-33 during this three year window we are speaking of. I mean, younger than Robben for sure!

SP
05-29-2015, 02:17 PM
Didn't see the point of going with Neuer when there are only 6 people in the draft. Everyone is going to be able to get a World Class keeper. Obviously he's incredible, but wouldn't have done it with an one of my first three picks.

I'll be using the old Milan tactic from when they had Crespo and Shevchenko up top with Kaka in behind, Pirlo pulling the strings, and Seedorf out wide.

Suarez and Muller up top, Ozil in behind, Koke LM, Vidal RM, Busquets as the deep lying playmaker.

Why did De Bruyne dropped ? He's like 3rd/4th round material. One of the best playmaker on the market, can play multiple positions and great work rate.

And I was surprised to see De Gea being picked before Courtois. Am I just a homer or Am I the only one who think he's the second best keeper in the world ?

SP
05-30-2015, 05:51 PM
http://this11.com/play/abI8UOfam6.png

Can go 4-2-3-1 and play counter-attacking with Mascherano and Matic protecting the back four as well as any pair in the world and Hazard and Griezmann providing pace on the wings.

Or 3-4-3 with Mascherano dropping deeper, Rodriguez and Ramos as wing backs giving width and the front three being more fluid. Kroos drops deeper to control possession with Matic.

With both Mascherano and Matic, the midfield is under control. But aren't they both too defensive ? I feel like one would have been enough and you could have paired the remaining one with another kind of midfielder. Or maybe another 10 instead of Kroos.

Still have subs to draft. Needed Mascherano because of his versatility though. I'll probably draft a 10 as sub so we have the possibility of dropping either Mascherano or Matic and then I can move Kroos back.

Edit: but having the Park The Bus/Mourinho option is an important part of my plan :)

http://www.footballuser.com/formations/2015/05/1265022_Football_Manager_Team.jpg

So I was thinking I'll have Cavani as the lone striker to work his magic with his feet and with his head. Bale and Robben working the wings as an explosive duo with world class ball handling and finishing. I put Di Maria behind them so he can run up and down and work with space. Modric can come forward as well but his primary role would be that of a deep-lying playmaker because of his good defense. Lahm is there to help hold down the fort defensively. Alaba and Ivanovic would storm down on offense as well. Bonucci and Mertesacker can initiate attacks with excellent passing as well being great defenders. Great in set pieces as well.

Flam
05-30-2015, 09:27 PM
Cavani has been a great player and he has some good years in front of him but he kinda had a bad season in Paris.

I feel like there are not many great FB at the moment. Some of the guys picked are ok but they are not that dominant.

cavani was my favorite player while at napoli but he hasn't been the same player at psg after having to adjust with ibra's presence.

FBs are always the shallowest positions for these drafts.

Yeah one left. People can start sending rankings (excluding your own team of course) and if other people want to rank (towelie, cig, naga etc) send them as well. I'll work out the average ranking.

Case I'll make for myself:

With my fullbacks I have a wonderful combination of attack (Carvajal) and defense (Azp), with a box to box monster (Vidal) roaming the pitch as the best holding mid in the world (Busquets) anchors the middle, spreading the ball around to incredible attackers such as Koke, Ozil, Muller, and Suarez. Koke will give me left side width, whipping the ball in with those amazing crosses of his and playing link up football with Suarez and Ozil, while Carvajal will overlap with Muller on the right hand side. All while Silva and Benatia form a wall at the back along with Azpilicueta. All in front of Petr Cech.

I think I have the best balance of attacking and defending in the draft, with Isco and Witsel on my bench to either ramp up the attack or hold down the midfield at an increased rate if need be. Age wise Silva and Cech are only people in any danger of slowing down, and I have elite young talents in Marquinhos & Leno ready to step in in the next few years. I can play like Barca, I can play like Chelsea, and I can do it for all 3 years without any concern whatsoever.

Come on Zach we can finish this!

Can go 4-2-3-1 and play counter-attacking with Mascherano and Matic protecting the back four as well as any pair in the world and Hazard and Griezmann providing pace on the wings.

Or 3-4-3 with Mascherano dropping deeper, Rodriguez and Ramos as wing backs giving width and the front three being more fluid. Kroos drops deeper to control possession with Matic.

Adding to this. Tevez gives me someone to play the second strker when we're playing 4-2-3-1 if we're in need of more attacking play. Kroos can drop back and take the place of Mascherano or Matic.

Lacazette further increases fire power up front. A potential front 4 of Aguero, Hazard, Lacazette and Tevez could rain goals, whilst still fitting the structure of my team (ST Aguero; LW Hazard; CF Tevez; RW Lacazette) and not leaving us open at the back if Mascherano and Matic were behind them.

We'll be hard to break down but will be able to rely on pure goalscorers and counter-attacking pace up top to eke out 1 and 2 nil wins!

senterino, here are my thoughts

1. Rob - Wonderful all around squad with incredible attack, midfield versatility, and staying power for all 3 years, even after Zlatan fades.

2. Woot - Best attack in the draft with a wonderful defensive 4. Concern over the midfield defense w/ so many pure attackers, but otherwise very good.

3. R4L - Very good attack. My favorite midfield in the draft, and a very solid defense. Replace RvP with a young difference maker and would contend for #1.

4. SP - Really like both the attack and midfield, but the defense scares me. Zouma isnt ready yet and I don't like Pique very much.

5. Zach - Everything is good, but nothing stands out as great in a loaded draft like this, especially with Ronaldo and Iniesta aging. Also, fuck Nasri.

Zach

I had 2 other young guns in mind for ST but decided to go with the sentimental pick of RvP

I really expected van Persie to shine under LVG but it was kind of the opposite. Not sure if it was just age or if the fit didn't work as well as it did with the national team, but him and Falcao were both massive disappointments.

Falcao makes me so sad. He missed the WC and hasn't been bad ass Falcao...breaks my heart. Really considered taking him but was ultimately scared away lol

That was me but I wanted to take it back because after getting everyone else's rankings it looked like I did it to spite Comahan and R4L lol. Even though your bench is awful I really liked your attack and didn't see the 3 year span as an issue for Cris.

Took me ages to decide the order though. I'd say one team was definitely the worst and the next have it in the top 2. Eventually I just ended up matching every team against each other three times and working out points.
