This Week In Football: The Super Draft

In this special edition of This Week in Football, we combine with SempreInter.com and The Football Times to bring you a super draft. Jim Hart from The Football Times and Nima Tavallaey from SempreInter.com join us to create our own draft of the world’s top players, and simulate a round robin tournament to see who is the true champion. Goalkeepers are the bookends to our draft as Nima chose Manuel Neuer with the first overall pick, and Joe chose David De Gea with the final pick in the draft. Big names like Alexis Sanchez, Sergio Aguero, and Luca Modric never make it on any of our teams. We chose formations and players to fill those formations out, with a little fun and banter in between. Tweet at@SempreIntercom @thesefootytimes and  @LowLimitFutbol with the hash tag #TWIF, and give us your starting XI. Here is the teams as chosen by our hosts:
