    Todibo for me looks the best young French CB out there along with Konate. I'm sure @Evilo will disagree since he dislikes Fench CBs once they sign for Barca. ;)

    Thrilled to get Mertens as late as I did. Even with Sarri gone he's still productive and I think he'd slot in really well with my team. He's 32 but I think he's got 2-3 years left.

    I never disliked Umtiti nor Lenglet. :dunno:
    Best young french CB? Nah, that's *********. Or ******.

    Anyway, about Thauvin, I don't know.
    He's a guy with tremendous talent, he can make some amazing moves, he plays hard. It's just that when the opponent is strong, it seems he can't up his level. Or even play like he usually does.
    He'll bag tons of goals and assists against weaker teams, but hits a wall against stronger teams. And I can't even say he doesn't have the skills to shine against them because he does.
    It's like a mental wall.

    I was just about to pick my boy, Winks. :mad:

    But I didn't realize Tonali was available so I am still very happy.

    Very happy to snag Fornals. He offers a nice package and is yet another player who has shown up some big matches. Still a lot of players left to consider though.

    I didn't necessarily want to take Danilo, but I also don't want to use two of my last picks on fullbacks. No fun in that.

    Donnarumma is coming off a good season. Surprised to find him still available.

    Man, I left GK late and I didn't even notice that a few people had yet to pick one. I couldn't wait any longer and I'm thrilled to get Lafont. I was even going to make a double GK pick here, but the other guy I was considering was picked a while ago without my noticing. Now not sure what I'll do with the next pick, but GK is thus far the least addressed position in this draft.

    The Oyarzabal pick, holy **** man. How did it take this long. I had already picked two left wingers in Dembele and Insigne so I couldn't do it.

    He will be sold in a year for 80 million then be picked by rd 3 next draft

    I was thinking of picking him in around round 9. Then I saw Insigne there and just thought I would keep waiting as long as possible on that because I think he's a little better. Picking Oyarzabal in ROUND ****ING 19 is a heist. There's still a few players left I was referring to a few posts ago, but he has to be the best player that barely anyone rates at all.

    It’s not that anyoen rates him there’s 4/5 watchers of a La Liga that I’m confident actually watch the league. So he’s largely an unknown commodity.

    I like Oyarzabal as he's an important player for La Real and he's very good value this late, but let's not get carried away. I mean @Duchene2MacKinnon if you think he's going to be a 3rd round pick next year then I can only assume that you'll be joining us then and the one to draft him there. In all seriousness though, I think you would have to consider how he's played to get the best out of him. Not being pacy and being left-footed I would think he'd be inverted more than he is. He also doesn't have much of a cross, so I would think being a bit more a central option might even get better out of him. On top of that while he puts up impressive goal numbers, he does take some of the penalties. That said he strikes the ball well and is good at short interplay. He also seems a natural leader for La Real and definitely shows up in some of their bigger matches. He's also a smart player. I think @Duchene2MacKinnon is right that it's down to familiarity with a guy like him. He won't go cheap like Sarabia or Fornals, but these are the sorts of players that the Premiership "middle class" can snatch up from La Liga while some of the bigger clubs through money at "names" who in some cases aren't as good.

    You wouldn’t want me in the draft. I’ll I would pick is Argentinian’s and La Liga beasts. You wouldn’t even know what hit you.

    Hell give me 10 good Argentinians and I’d impregnate the *****.

    Yeah, you can join up next year. I'll even give you the first XI picks so long as you only draft Argentinian players, and you'll still lose.

    I don't think that is possible. Mind you save for 1 player I can probably pick the other ten with the last 10 picks.... did that make any sense. It's 4am here. I'm still trying to figure out if on Wednesday its a good idea to start REDACTED as a DM.

    Yeah, that makes sense, but you're forgetting about Kun. And your drafting REDACTED is something I'd be counting on. :D

    Still somewhat tough making picks with the players available. Semedo could be better, though I suspect some of that is on his manager, but with some of the RBs taken and from what I can tell teams without even an RB yet... I'll happily grab him. I also know the importance of having depth at that position, though Militao could also play there, but he'll be playing a lot at CB.

    BTW, all of my players are available for trade in the right deal.

    NOTE, everyone must draft at minimum two GKs.

    I got Oyarzabal at pick 240 last year. So moved up almost two full rounds. I'm pretty high on him.

    Well according to @Duchene2MacKinnon he's going to move up 16 full rounds so he's just pretty high.
