Presume that the new league is starting, and any player in the world is available to be selected. By a co-incidence Juve won the lottery, and has the right to pick first. As a president of new expansion club Juve, which player would you pick to build around?

My choice: Gigi Buffon.
Justification: Pretty young, and yet experienced. Also goalkeeper has a long career span. Furthermore, just having a good goalkeeper would itself dramatically improve the defence.

I thought it said "daft prick" :howler:

For my part I agree with you. There aren't many if any players at his level yet still young

Yeah I would pick Buffon too for the same reasons. He is our future for years to come.He is the best out there now.

Btw i would have picked Del Piero if he was a bit younger :p;)

Two words for you that spell out one of the most fantastic players ever (I've just been watching him so I'm still high on his goals... and yes, I do know he's not playing anymore).

Eric. Cantona.

My choice: Alessandro Nesta
Justification: Along with Thuram he's the best defender in the world, he's a great person, a great leader and only 26.

Goalkeeper: Buffon definitly

Even the most awesome outfield players will be let down if u have a poor goalie....

Bit like a Ruckman in AFL....prol the most important player in the side!

Pah! Picking a goalkeeper first is very touching, but it's not practical. There are many better first picks, like Michael Ballack, Ruud Van Nistelrooij, or Phillipe Mexes to name a few...
