With Small Rocks and Very Small Rocks drafts almost winding down, I was wondering how you all felt you did and which players you feel you missed out on? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Picking 8th, I'm reasonably happy with the middle-of-the-road team I managed to assemble. Not one to go for the big-money names, I almost always get the players I pencil in for myself; as I tend to gamble on them a round or two earlier than most people..... then rush to use the wildcard in Gameweek 2, when my fantasy didn't become the surprise real deal I was hoping for. But that's the fun part; drafting a fantasy. [LINEUP-3-5-2]Berbatov, Chamakh, Albrighton, Benayoun, Lennon, Nani, Nasri, Dawson, Evra, Vermaelen, Jaaskelainen[/LINEUP-3-5-2] Players that were under some consideration. 3.3 subbuteo - Windsor Wanderers - Defoe, Spurs, Forward, 9.0 Having lost out on this one (intended as my 2nd striker), I changed tack and went for defenders first, then came back for a slightly cheaper forward much later - Chamakh of Arsenal at 8 million with the 7.8 pick. 4.5 lobomojo - ColdDogSoup FC - Bale, Spurs, Midfield, 6.5 I would have prefered Bale as Defender, but the 6.5 midfield price did catch my eye in the initial build. As did 5.1 tarvinodos - Sasha Juniors - Petrov, Bolton, Midfield, 6.0 except for the dodgy knees (I told myself afterwards). I didn't realistically expect them to still be around until after I bagged my three starting defenders though. On the goalkeeping front, I had already decided to go with a cheap strategy here and felt I could wait. But obviously felt wrong. 5.3 subbuteo - Windsor Wanderers - Schwarzer, Fulham, Goalkeeper, 5.0 I was hoping to grab Schwarzer (as 2nd choice) but subbuteo chose him as the main man (early); maybe based on the Arsenal rumours, or kopiteinkc's early plump for Stoke's Sorenson (5.0) with pick 4.4 followed by tarvinodos diving in for Reina (6.5) with his 4.8 pick. Either way. Too early for dodgy keepers, so I waited it out. When it got back to my midfield slots, I splashed the cash a little in what might just turn out to be some cap-holding space, or a stroke of genius (Pick 6.1 - Nani, Man Utd, Midfield, 8.0). I felt pretty confident I could make that up on my cheap midfielder sleeper a little later; one that shows plenty of promise and might even get to start (Pick 10.1 - Albrighton, Aston Villa, Midfield, 4.5). 10.7 djangone - Pork Soda - Al-Muhammadi, Sunderland, Defender, 4.5 I was a little surprised to see him go and thought I might get to snag this one before the big spenders started running out of cash. I should have seen it coming though, when djangone's 9.2 pick was Ferguson, Birmingham, Midfield, 4.5. Oh well, I had my two cheapos too - Jaaskelainen and Albrighton. Would I have lost them had I gone for Al-Muhammadi? Is Al-Muhammadi a better snag than Albrighton? I really wanted them both. With Schwarzer gone long ago, it was getting close to me getting my back-up keeper with the 12.1 pick. 11.6 Eddie26 - Pittsadelphia - Foster, Birmingham, Goalkeeper, 4.5 I couldn't believe it! Eddie26 already had Cech and bettermirror (to pick 11.7) was holding Van Der Sar; surely neither of them would do a Hal and grab a second keeper before they'd even secured a starting eleven? Boy did I get that wrong.
