TEAM DESCRIPTION: I was not wedded to any formation when the draft began, and I still believe my squad gives me more tactical flexibility than any other. My nominal starting formation is a 4-3-2-1 Christmas tree, which encourages my fullbacks, Roberto Carlos and Javier Zanetti, to push up, as long as Didier Deschamps stay back to protect the defense.
My biggest selection dilemma, once my squad was picked, was who to choose between Kenny Dalglish and Dennis Bergkamp, and I have plumped for the Liverpool legend to start behind the eye-watering Maradona-Ronaldo duo.
As the draft went on, I found myself picking up versatile players who could plug gaps rather than specialists. The player I'm most pleased to have is Bobby Charlton, one of the world's outstanding midfielders who was ignored for over five rounds. I wish I had drafted Ruud Gullit to boost my midfield, which is a little short of cover.
The pressure of the draft order also played tricks on me: I found myself scouting German players when I was up before Honigstein (hence Oliver Kahn) and Romanians before Wilson (hello, Gheorghe Popescu). Still, I am happy with my team, and I am confident this lot can give the others one heck of a beating.
TEAM FORMATION: 4-3-2-1
