    I thought I could be as low as fifth this time so I'm happy with second.

    :laugh:

    Yours coming in 14th is absolutely baffling. It's your standard 4-2-3-1 with some top players. Can't remember my votes but defo had you around the top 5.

    :laugh:

    Your subs hindered you and your group was tough but still ridiculous.

    Wow. Some right shockers in the voting of this draft IMO.

    Didn't really mean it as an insult, it's just that I look at our two sides and we're incredibly similar IMO. His midfield is better but I prefer my strikers and GK while the defences are similar as well. Just strange that he's 6 places higher.

    Tbh a lot of the teams were so close it could've gone either way. Really hard to judge tbh.

    I think its down to how your formation looks on paper. Next time put a standard formation and expand on it in the write up.

    I wanted to put chamot level with the cbs, lauren further forward, overmars out wider and alexis nearer weah, but knew it would look unbalanced and lose votes.

    I could accept some of the votes more easily if they weren't completely at odds with the votes in the tournament. Either way you and AJ were robbed though.

    Honestly, I think this is a rather silly notion. In real life it's often the case that teams play somewhat lopsided/unbalanced formations depending on the players at their disposal. To mark someone down for that is nonsense IMO.
