    Think we got everyone we wanted, keeper was a gamble but it let us take Rivelino.

    Great draft.

    Thanks for taking part everyone.. was a fun draft.

    It also went in relatively fast, it had a good pace throughout.

    Tactics thread will be up an hour or so.

    Before the draft started I was very tempted to go around 25 - 35 year olds the whole way through to my 8th pick, and leave myself with enough years to make 3 genuine world class picks in rounds 9 to 11 from the 80+ range, where there was always going to be talent left over. But Pele becoming available to me in round 1 stopped that at once :laugh:

    We only took panucci in the end because I said so as we were scraping the barrel looking for a 43 year old fullback because you forgot we had to land on 500. :laugh:

    I was going to take Bravo last after picking Forster, but opted for a different route because Bravo is a fraud

    There wasn't a player I thought I really needed. The only player i'd have liked was Duncan Edwards but that was always going to be hard to predict which round he was being picked.
