im sure you thought about the consequences of random fat bloke from pub playing rb against professional wingers like ryan giggs and doing all them professional defender things like track runs hold lines defend set pieces win duels overlap runs retain possession off ball movement open up space triangle progression and carefully juxtaposed it to GK when you were going on about how uncoordinated random fat blokes are

have you seen how bad DA ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE was during the period before tbtvditw hit english shores and southhampton had bigger transfer budgets than ac milan?

i do rate a few central defenders tho. one of them admitted to being literally drunk when facing shearer and he was like the best CB itl (oldies will know who i'm talking about)

I thought you guys were talking random normal guy, if it's about fat bloke from pub I think 10% saving rate isn't unreasonable

Are we not drafting players relative to their era though? Of course modern players are better than the 90's guys but that's not what we're doing is it?

Re: All-Time English Premiership Draft

i reckon fergs probably worth the same as a very good but not elite player. whenever the french lesbian ex arsenal player* goes, thats when i'd draft fergie.

*should be sufficiently vague so as to not give away undrafteds, pretty sure there have been a number of french lesbian ex arsenal players during the arsene era

This is mostly for banter(for me), so I know that I'll be pushing for some 90s players. English clubs still did win some trophies and go deep in European competition after the Europe ban, so it's not like England was a complete football backwaters.

Suarez a great pick, his last season was quite possibly the Prem's best.

Not convinced by the Drogba pick the more I think about it. Better goal scorers out there.

Re: All-Time English Premiership Draft

Will get around to a full write up later tonight, but love our Suarez pick. Biggest steal of the draft w/ CRon. Top 5 player w/ the 16th pick GOAT Team BAIDS/LFC_USA already out to a flyer

Youre obviously to stupid to follow a conversation, LDO,if BAIDS had claimed BM would win BL with me at RB I would have disputed that as well. He made the claim about me as keeper so I made some assessments about how **** I would be in goal based on how **** I am in goal, its not hard.

If you try and follow the thread you wont have to AIDS them up by charging into make completely unfounded derp posts to try and make your self feel better.

Windowlickererio.

LOL at Suarez top 5 player in the history of the league. Jesus the recency bias is so bad you should just make a draft from 2000+.

Re: All-Time English Premiership Draft

am very sure they win the BL with you at RB, long as you knew what a useless **** you were when trying to do anything and adjusted your play appropriately

--

drogba was more than goals. think i take one undrafted striker ahead of him but hes def fine late in the first round. underrated in part due to his play acting early in his chelsea career

--

given the de-emphasis on longevity in this draft i think suarez can be argued to be top 5
