So that is a wrap for Round 1. There were certainly a few shocks, for instance Wayne Rooney falling into the 2nd round, and Eden Hazard being taken ahead of the likes of Xavi and Iniesta.

What are your thoughts? Are you Happy with your first round selection?

Now it's on to Round 2. Same time tomorrow, so I NEED your top 10 PM by the end of the day or tomorrow morning :) Only one person didn't send the PM for Round 1, so good going so far :)

Thanks, everyone. It won't work if you don't send me that PM.

Most of you have still got players left over from your initial Top 10's, so if you don't send the PM in time, I will just go by that :) Cheers guys.

I've left Rooney out especially on my list as he has Liverpool as his disliked club :D Forming my list atm for the 2nd round.

I'm not too surprised by Rooney's position in the draft. A lot of people can see through the qualities we English prize, like how he tries etc. and have opted for players with just a touch more technical quality. I would be interested to know how many people put Rooney on their list of 10 and just managed to get someone higher as opposed to how many ignored him.

Phil Jones is more of a surprise...someone obviously wants to carry this game concept on for several seasons. :D

I put Rooney at 5 on my list, Xavi was 3rd with Messi and Ronaldo at 1 and 2, but I didn't expect to get either of those two :D

Happy with Xavi, and there are still plenty of quality players left to pick from

Rooney made it onto 5 of the top 10's, 4 of which were in fact top 5. So 3/4 of the league didn't even consider Rooney in the top 10, and a 1/4 would have happily taken him in the 1st round if one of the 4 players before him had already been drafted. Quite interesting.

Rooney may or may not be in my next 10. Only 1 way to find out...

Happy with my attacking options, but with only one defender at the moment, it's probably best to focus on that :D

Ohh man im loving this squad so far, need to patch up the team and this should make for an interesting season. Considering we all had fair shot at alot of players, im wondering how tight the league will be because of all the top players evenly distributed amongst all the teams.
