    I would love to hear more of these. I think you should do an all time team for England to even it up for our drafters on the show. Would be great to hear.

      Thanks Kyle! We’ll definitely do it again. It’s 150 years of the English Football Association this year, so an all-time England draft is definitely an option. It’s just a question of persuading my anti-Colonial co-hosts …

    Begrudgingly voted the Englishman when Borghi was picked in the eighth round = /

    Daryl wins this draft, no contest. And it’s not b/c he picked second and somehow still managed to land the US’s all-time leading scorer, two best central midfielders, and best defender. No. It’s b/c Ryan doesn’t know the difference between Eddie Pope’s actual university, UNC (Go heels!), and that abomination of red brick just down the road, nc state, where Tad Ramos went to school.

    Even so, the Total Soccer Show is still the most fun soccer podcast on the interwebs.

      That’s Tab Ramos. (Probably looks bad correcting someone and then misspelling Tab.)

    As a new fan to the sport I thoroughly enjoyed this topic. Gives history and perspective to someone coming into “the know”. I was always a big fan of all-time baseball lists (as my first sporting love), especially ones that actually considered line-ups. A tourney of 16 or 32 of the all-time best World Cup teams would also be interesting (ie France ’98 – not saying they’re the best, but matching up the best and playing out the tournament). Thanks guys, glad I found your podcast!

    Enjoyed the pod cast. Great topic. Had to go with Ryan and not because his dad used to bring him to the bar with after our games and he was barely out of diapers. Nope, purely for the reason he picked players with a better skill set that would play a much better brand of soccer. Couldn’t help but to go check out highlights of Perez, you have to remember the opportunity to watch some of these guys play was rare. Cheers

    Although I leaned towards Ryan in overall strategy I picked Daryl because of his enthusiastic selection of Frankie Hejduk.
