TEAM DESCRIPTION: I went into the draft with the plan of selecting players to fit my preferred system -- a modern 4-2-3-1, playing with a high line, possession based and pressing in spurts. I also wanted to draft only players that I'd seen play, which unfortunately pretty much ruled out players from before the 70s.
There were a couple of players I was especially disappointed to miss out on, in particular Johan Neeskens who I'd planned to pair with Falcao in the two holding midfield spots and Andreas Brehme at left back. As it was, I was delighted to pick up an Italian spine of Zoff-Baresi-Scirea. Granted, the Baresi-Scirea pairing is slightly undersized but looking at the other team's lineups, most of them will try to pass their way through opposing defenses and in Baresi-Scirea, I'd argue that I have the most instinctive center back tandem drafted.
In Falcao and Redondo I have a dynamic holding pair who can both win the ball, control possession with superior technique and passing and provide intelligent link-up with my front four. Up front, I needed a lone striker that could either hold the ball up, finish in the air and also pull defenses with his movement, Batistuta fits that bill -- with Platini lending support in the hole, pulling the strings with his creative genius and chipping in goals. Out wide, I have George Best on the left with his pace and trickery and on the right, I opted to start Kevin Keegan whose pace and energy and all-round game gives more balance than Littbarski. It was a close call for me in drafting Keegan over David Villa, and in hindsight I think I should have gone for Villa and played him on the left (with Best moving to the right), but you know what they say about hindsight.
TEAM FORMATION: 4-2-3-1
