    Shocked to have gotten anything, after missing all of those picks! I certainly built from the center, and it showed with a decent showing there! Also, woot, 11!

    Wow! Didn't think I'd come 2nd from bottom! :laugh:

    Will have to enter the next one to save My rep! Think I'll prefer the next draft too. None of this 12 month form to worry about which ended up costing Me I think.

    Well done Shane deserved win. I learned a lot on this draft, how limited my European player knowledge was and also learned about some cracking players.
    Looking forward to the new draft now , hopefully I can do a bit better this time.

    Second season syndrome ;)

    Only 3 more places available for the new draft game. I doubt many people visit the 'Competitions' forum (?), but we have a few new players.

    Should this thread be HOF'd along with the Prem draft?

    Nemanja Matić moved to Chelsea & became the best DM in the Prem, hardly anyone knew him when I picked him but I was mad keen on picking him. I could have picked him last for all anyone cared.

    Thiago Silva & Neymar starred at the world cup. Fred was shit mind you. :laugh:

    Marc-André ter Stegen went to Barca.

    Gündoğan has been out injured.

    My other picks were through necessity really.

    The majority of my team did pretty f*cking well.

    Gomez the only one who didn't do so well.

    RVP hasn't had a great year but he was an easily justifiable pick, as were Fabregas, Miranda and Tevez. Cerci was doing fine until he moved to Atleti to keep the bench warm.

    Vertonghen had a poor second season with Spurs and is only just getting back on form. Thiago's been even more injury-prone than before.

    The rest were pretty nondescript picks if I'm honest, but then we did have a lot of managers in this draft.

    If we drafted those teams again today, I wouldn't have been anywhere near the top.

    Just goes to show how much can change in a year..Tevez, Costa and Sanchez were barely in the first 100 players picked, James didn't get picked until round six!

    Arjen Robben - star for Netherlands at WC, and villain!
    Thomas Müller - probably my best player. What a year!
    Santi Cazorla - varying from average to inspiring
    Karim Benzema - he has bagged so many goals this calendar year, a key member of Madrid's unstoppable BBC.
    Blaise Matuidi - PSG's/France's powerhouse, gone from strength to strength. Wenger would love Matuidi and Schneiderlin!
    Morgan Schneiderlin - a very tactically important player for Saints, caps for France too now. Will he move to a 'bigger club' to play Champions League football...?
    Bacary Sagna - moved to City, seen little of him.
    Gaël Clichy - City's consistent LB.
    Toby Alderweireld - now at Saints, forming a solid partnership with Fonte, best defence in Prem.
    Daniel Van Buyten - retired, after reaching his pinnacle with Bayern.
    Simon Mignolet - oh dear oh dear
