Team Profiles and Default Lineups

New thread, so we can make some more ridiculous statements:

Ghost World

Biggest buy: Vermaelen (76m). Expensive, but it's good to have a regular partner for Vidic

Best buy: Hopefully Gomez does enough to justify the money I spent on him

Worst buy: Whichever third-rate striker I end up bringing in

Star player: Drogba (already has 3 goals, hopefully he'll keep it up)

Most overrated player: Nasri was disappointing last season, and now he's injured

Most underrated: Richardson. Quetz let him go, and then bought Geovanni (albrit for a lot less money). Hopefully he'll have a point to prove when we meet

Tip for the league: Quetz

Ideal position (apart from top): Europa League last season, Champions League this season

Realistic position: 6th. Again.

Default Lineup

Quote:
GK: CECH
CB: VIDIC; VERMAELEN
FB: WARNOCK; EVRA
CM: FELLAINI; GOMEZ
AM: VALENCIA; RICHARDSON
ST: DROGBA; AGBONLAHOR

Subs:
GK: Myhill
CB: Hughes
FB: Richards
CM: Reo-Coker
AM: Pedersen

Biggest buy: Delph (2m). More out of love than logic. A lad from Bradford that is genuine and an honest player with a proper 'Bratfud' accent. Will only be bit part player for me and for Villa though.

Best buy: Pfft, McFadden maybe. Takes penalties and Birmgham are going to need as many of them as possible.

Worst buy: Bowyer, I used to love his indiscipline when we were leading. Now he doesnt play for a team i particulary like and will get sent off more times than he'll play.

Star player: Berbatov I hope.

Most overrated player: Deco. No chance of him been sold now either.

Most underrated: Cuellar.

Tip for the league: Quetz

Ideal position (apart from top): Not bottom.

Realistic position: Bottom.

Default Lineup:

Given

Sagna
Gallas
Cuellar
Konchesky

Milner
Essien
Bowyer
Deco

Berbatov
Zamora

Subs : Taylor, Young, Huth, Delph, Greening, Owen.

By the way GW, you have 6 subs.

Are we still using 5 subs or are we following PL rules and allowing 7 ?

I thought we were switching to six subs, one for each position?

Or did I imagine that?

Biggest buy: Distin (34m). Quite pleased to get this guy for that amount, if he holds down a regular place he should do okay.

Best buy: Jack Wilshere - he'll be worth 4 times his fee in a couple of seasons.

Worst buy: Potentially Kyrgiakos if he doesn't feature....

Star player: It's still very much a team game at my club although I hope RVP plays far more than last season.

Most overrated player: All 3 of my strikers (RVP, Keane & Carew) are good on paper. I need them to focus less on scoring for their countries and more on scoring for their clubs.

Most underrated: Rosicky and Hargreaves.....both looked like their best days were behind them, if they recover to near what they were they will prove to be superb bargains.

Tip for the league: Ghostworld

Ideal position (apart from top): 2nd

Realistic position: Looking at the other teams I can definitely go better than last year. I want a CL spot (4th).

Default Lineup:

- Gordon -

-O'Shea - Distin - Shawcross - Upson -

-Fletcher - Petrov - Denilson -

- Benayoun - Larsson -

- Carew -


Fulop
Clichy
Kyriagos
Scharner
Hunt
Keane

Biggest buy: Aquilani 84 million. Ridiculously overpriced for an injury prone player in his first season of Premiership football. But thats supply and demand. Desperate for a CM, and he was the only decent CM to be transfered to the Prem.

Best buy: Aquilani, just because he is the only decent player I brought in. Terrible transfer window for me, lost my best player without replacing him. Regress from last season.

Star player: Rooney

Most underrated: Diaby, got a bit of a clown reputation but he is scoring alot from midfield lately.

Tip for the league: Ghostworld (just so he can be jinxed like last season) Although he does have a really strong squad depth.

Ideal position: 1st, just try and repeat last season.

Realistic position: 1st if my galacticos stay fit, if not I could be out the CL places because my team is paper thin.

Line up

--------------Almunia-------------
------King--Toure--Davies--Aurelio
----------Carrick--Aquilani---------
----------Lampard--Gerrard--------
----------Rooney--Eduardo--------

Salgado
?
Diaby
Geovani
Bendtner

Biggest buy: Heitinga, for 41M, exactly 40.5M more than I needed to pay for him. However, Everton's defence is on a par with Arsenal's I reckon, so if Vermaelen can go for 76M, then maybe 41M isn't a bad price for someone who will get a similar number of clean sheets.

Best buy: Diamanti, easily. 2M for someone who could well set the league alight. Came on for a cameo yesterday and hit the post. A very talented player who will hopefully provide his fair share of goals and assists.

Worst buy: Roger Johnson? If I get him. He does play for Birmingham after all

Star player: John Terry. I can see him popping up with some important goals this campaign. The rock of my defence.

Most overrated player: Santa Cruz. Will hardly play this season with Adebayor in front of him. Hopefully Adebayor will get a fair few bans though.

Most underrated: Bent. Gone from being a terrible signing last season to one of the league's best marksmen this season.

Tip for the league: Hunter Lionheart

Ideal position (apart from top): 2nd, obviously

Realistic position: I hope I can make the CL again, but I honestly don't know if my squad is strong enough.

Default Lineup

Reina

Brown - Rio - Terry - Cole

Parker - Anderson

Diamanti - Arteta - Tuncay

Bent

Bench: Jensen, Heitinga, R.Johnson, Prince-Boateng, Taylor, A.Johnson

Biggest buy: Zhirkov - 66.5m A bit of a gamble as he's not fit, but I needed quality as I had a team of cloggers. He will be worth it if he can get fit.

Best buy: Jimenez for 0.5m is an absoulte steal, but I'm most pleased with getting in Bilyaletdinov.

Worst buy: Diego Cavalieri, if I keep him.

Star player: Stephen Ireland. The best CM in the game after Fabregas.

Most overrated player: I don't think any of my players are particularly rated. Probably Sturridge who'll never play a bloody game.

Most underrated: Tom Huddlestone is a player who will get a lot of games in his side and keep a fair few clean sheets. Not sure if he'll start though.

Tip for the league: Hunter Lionheart

Ideal position (apart from top): Top 4.

Realistic position: 9th again, missing out on Europe.

Default Lineup

---------------Hart
Rafael-----Turner----Ridgewell---Belhadj
----De Jong---Ireland
Malouda-------------Bilyaletdinov
-----------Anelka---Sturridge

Subs: Schwarzer, Onuoha, Neville, Delap, Zhirkov, Klasnic

Biggest buy: Song Billong - 30 million something. Probably one of the most improved players in the league since he used to be absolutely terrible and now is actually quite good. Gonna play regular-ish games I imagine for a top 4-6 team so I imagine he'll be handy.

Best buy: No one really. Maybe Duff can recapture some of his old form.

Worst buy: Danny Higginbotham. Especially considering I passed him up for guys like Jimenez and Diamanti.

Star player: Jamie Carragher. Especially now since he's my only Liverpool defender left in the team. Could bring some vital clean sheets

Most overrated player: Yakubu maybe? Who knows if he'll regather some of his old form. Would be nice if he did.

Most underrated: Gonna be C. Cole this season. I can feel it.

Tip for the league: Quetz. Rooney, Gerrard, Lampard and Aquilani will destroy teams.

Ideal position (apart from top): Top 4.

Realistic position: Bottom half

Default Lineup

----------------------Green
Faubert?-----Carragher----Hangeland----Collins

------------Barry---Song----Palacios--------
-------------------Joe Cole-----------------
-----------Jo----------C. Cole--------------

subs: sorensen, Da Costa, Figueroa, Milijas, Duff, Yakubu

Subs: Hart, Onuoha, Belhadj, Huddlestone, Malouda, Klasnic.

Biggest buy: Lescott (Trade for Dirk Kuyt) Big boost for my centre back positions, I'm very optimistic

Best buy: Hopefully Joleon Lescott

Worst buy: Eh, probably Vanden Borre- he's a backup full back who I had no need to pay so much for

Star player: Arshavin. When fit, the man is top class.

Most overrated player: Pavlyuchenko- 4th in line at Spurs.

Most underrated: Kevin Davies- came in as a last resort pick last season- now looks to be my first choice striker.

Tip for the league: Quetz. Damnit.

Ideal position (apart from top): 2nd?

Realistic position: ...2nd.

Default Lineup

----------------Howard
Bosingwa, Skrtel, Lescott, Baines
-----------Fabregas, Murphy
------Lennon, Arshavin, Walcott
-----------------Davies

Robinson, Vanden Borre, Woodgate, Sidwell, N'Zogbia, Bellamy

I have no sig. If anybody would like to make me one, please inform me

Biggest buy: Jack Rodwell for 25m. I'm woefully short on CM's and he was one of the few half-decent left.

Best buy: Jack Rodwell. I can see him putting in good shifts for me and contributing his fair share.

Worst buy: Tommy Smith. Plays for Portsmouth. Championship material.

Star player: Emmanuel Adebayor.

Most overrated player: I don't really have any. I do think Michael Kightly might surprise a few.

Most underrated: Kenwyne Jones. I can feel he gonna have a good season.

Tip for the league: Ghost World

Ideal position (apart from top): Improvement from last season

Realistic position: Mid-table ish

Default Lineup

Friedel

Johnson - Samba - Givet - Assou Ekotto

Pienaar - M. Davies - Rodwell - Cahill

Tevez - Adebayor

Bench: Jones, S. Davis, Kalou, Kightly, Corluka, Nelsen
