The idea of the draft is that you have to pick a team-mate of the last man drafted.

Club games and International games count but they must have shared minutes on the pitch.

In rounds 1-6 we draft downwards.

Then rounds 7-11 we draft upwards.

In effect the bottom drafter has 1 less round as 1st pick but will have a double pick at the end of round 6.

The first player has been chosen at random by myself and will not be eligible for the rest of the draft.

The player chosen at random is..

Alessandro Del Piero

This means that the person drafting first has to select a team-mate of Del Piero.

    Have to stress guys, the player you choose must have shared minutes on the pitch with the previous player!

    @jamle1874

    You're up first. Your pick has to have been a teammate of Alessandro Del Piero for club or country.

    Guys, after each person chooses their player could you please @ the person up after you to keep it flowing.

    Good luck!

    You have 12 hours to pick a player or you are kicked out. If you know beforehand you have a busy day and can't pick, but want to stay in the draft, then let us know and we will, as a group, pick someone for you. Give us what position you want filled and we will pick the best available player for that position.

    The time limit will be paused from midnight until 9am. Therefore if the person before you chooses their player at 8pm, you have until 5pm the following day to make your pick. If you have not given us permission to pick a player for you, then you're out.

    By the way, just because the time limit is void from midnight until 9am doesn't mean you can't pick a player during those hours. Please do.

    Whatever formation you want. You might change it throughout if a player becomes available. For instance you might already have 2 centre halves, but the person before picks a teammate of a world class centre half...so you might decide to take him and go to 3 at the back.

    I tend to aim for 4231 from the start because that's my favourite formation in general.

    Got half a mind on a 424, hoard the best attackers and go from there B)

    Remember though, all about a good balance to see who has the best overall team!

    They never shared minutes on the pitch together I'm afraid. Zidane left Juve right after Buffon joined.

    @daviec you need to pick someone else.

    Edit: Sorry mate but if you'll be any busier during the next draft you're more than welcome to take part but we want to get this one moving. Afraid you'll have to sit out.

    Bergkamps actually a great choice, can slot him in various positions so more options to build around. Cam, striker, false 9.

    You think Henry was better than Van Basten or Berkamp? Berkamp is a good discussion but for me Van Basten was the best forward of all time (well since the 70s at least). And Berkamp just had that bit of brilliance that would make me pick him over Henry.
