This is the Official Draft Thread, so where the player picking happens. I'll try and update this whenever I am on FF.

Rules
1. Draft when it is your turn. As of right now there is no time slots so just wait for your pick
2. PM the poster after you. This keeps the draft running
3. All-time players so anyone that has played football professionally
4. Try and give at least a brief summary on each player. A minimum of a wiki intro. It gives us an idea on players that some of us might have not heard of.
5. If you believe that you would miss your pick, PM another member on this forum. LeeEvans says that he is available but he is usually on after 5-6PM EST so take that into consideration. You can always try posting in TARFT and asking a member to do it. I'm sure guys like Blahmann or Wyzz will be up for it.

With the first overall pick, in the FF All-Time Draft. Real Madrid CF selects none other than "El Maestro"



Zinedine Zidane

With Zinedine Zidane we have the best offensive minded midfielder of all time in providing playmaking all over the pitch, retain possession of the ball, and a guy who was able to take a national team by himself to a World Cup final.

I love it.

Diego Maradona



EDIT: I forgot the little intro I guess, so here's my explanation...

Diego Maradona, not a lot needs to be said. If you don't know this legend then you definitely haven't been exposed to soccer too much. He definitely is quite the personality but he is individually the best soccer player to ever play. He is responsible for one of the greatest goals ever in the 1986 World Cup against England. As much as I wanted to draft a certain Brazilian, I can't pass up such a fluid and phenomenal goal scorer. He can single-handedly turn a game around.

With the 3rd pick of the draft, the New York Redbulls welcome the "King of Football" back to NY (or NJ)


Pele


Pace, dribbling, passing, a great goalscorer in every way, Pele had everything you want in a forward. Santos' and Brazil's all time leading goalscorer, 1281 goals in 1363 appearances, 'nough said

This was a tough pick

My original idea was to go with Zidane

But seeing as ElRey nabbed him #1 overall I was stuck

I figured Maradona and Pele to go top 3 so they weren't in my mindset

So without further ado

I introduce to you

The man who brought us "Total Football"



Johan Cruyff

Simply Mr. Real Madrid.

Tim Vickery wrote:
But the more I think about it the clearer my own answer, for what it's worth, seems to be. They ask Pele or Maradona. I say Di Stefano.

All of Europe was going through the same experience. Di Stefano took the game of football up to a level the continent had never seen before. He was not the driving force behind Real Madrid winning the first five European Cups, he was also chiefly responsible for the quick success of the competition. Everyone wanted to see his Real Madrid side.

Just as had happened after Uruguay won the 1924 Olympics in Paris, some South American talent had set off a fever for the game in Europe. If Leeds United wear white, if there is a club in the US called Real Salt Lake, and if the European Cup was an instant hit, then much of the credit belongs to Di Stefano.

Some would even argue that as the leading light in Real's galaxy, Di Stefano helped improve foreign perceptions of Spain, thus encouraging the tourist boom and consequently hastening the country's integration into mainstream Western European politics following the death of the dictator Franco.


Bobby Charlton wrote:
"Who is this man?" was Charlton's instant impression. "He takes the ball from the goalkeeper; he tells the full-backs what to do; wherever he is on the field he is in position to take the ball; you can see his influence on everything that is happening... I had never seen such a complete footballer. It was as though he had set up his own command centre at the heart of the game. He was as strong as he was subtle. The combination of qualities was mesmerising."


Helenio Herrera wrote:
Alfredo Di Stéfano was the greatest footballer of all time - far better even than Pelé. He was, simultaneously, the anchor in defence, the playmaker in midfield, and the most dangerous marksman in attack.


Jose Santamaria wrote:
Real teammate Jose Santamaria concurred. “He was the most complete player ever, something I’ve never seen anywhere else. And I’ve seen a lot of players.”

Just as valuable, however, was the influence he had on everyone else. “It was on and off the pitch,” Santamaria continued. “On the pitch because he was everywhere. Off the pitch, because he showed like no-one else how much he loved and respected Real Madrid and he transmitted that respect to all his teammates.”

Ferenc Puskás



He has an amazing goal scoring record and he has an award named after him. He's the perfect player to lead my team.

With the 9th overall pick, Tottenham Hotspur select, Lionel Messi:

I am absolutely shocked that the guy I would have taken 1st overall is still available at #9. I'm not sure I can say much more that hasnt already been said about the GOAT. He has so far won 5 Spanish League Titles, 1 Spanish Cup, 3 UEFA Champions Leagues, 2 UEFA SuperCups, 2 FIFA World Club Cups and an Olympic Gold Medal. His personal awards are endless, but his 3 consecutive FIFA Ballon d'Or awards is the most impressive. At the age of just 24 he still has most of his career ahead of him and lord knows what he will have achieved by the time he calls it a day.

I could post hundreds of quotes about his greatness, but there is only one that I need:

I'll take the greatest goalkeeper of all time in Lev Yashin. I'll edit the post to make give it some jazz later.

FTMP takes Lev Yashin, GK



Yashin is without a doubt the greatest goalkeeper football has ever seen. He has an estimated over 150 penalty saves, had 4 world cup clean sheets but more importnatly than this, he completely changed a position.

Goalkeeper Sweeping
Punching the ball
Organising his defence

Yashin pioneered the goalkeeping position and combined these innovations with phenomenal athleticism which made him a great shot stopper and cemented his position as the greatest.

With the 12th overall pick, Tottenham Hotspur selcet, Paolo Maldini:

One of the greatest defenders of all time. Maldidi is arguably the best ever LB and certainly in the discussion for the best ever CB. His career spanned over 25 years all whilst at AC Milan. He compiled over 900 appearances for Milan winning 7 Serie A titles, 5 Champions Leagues, 2 Intercontinental Cups, 5 UEFA Super Cups, 1 Copa Italia and 5 Supercoppa Italiana.

Maldini also amassed 126 caps for Italy and retired as the most capped player for both Italy and Milan. He was a truly superb captain and a fantastic leader on the pitch.
