Your ultimate XI of all time.


Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Recommended Posts

Ok, always one to set the cat amongst the pigeons. Please share with me your best team of all time, players from any time, league or team. Who's your captain and how you think your team would be the best there is. Only base it on players you've actually seen since you've been watching, no point trying to include someone from 50 years ago if you haven't actually seen them play.

This could (and will) get feisty no doubt. Respect each other's picks though.

Kahn

Lahm - Maldini - Terry © - Cole

Lampard - Zidane - Scholes (not sure which who goes central, hard to decide)

Messi - Ronaldo - C. Ronaldo

Apolgies in advance if someone already shared something similar. Looked and couldn't find it.

Interesting thread this.

 

For me:

 

                      Cech

G.Neville - Terry © - Nesta - Maldini

                Zidane - Pirlo

C. Ronaldo - Ronaldinho - Nedved

                     Messi

 

 

Nice combination of defensive steel and attacking flair.

I love when you read other people's and realise the players you missed.

How did I forget about Pirlo.....

Terry would be my captain but so many leaders on the pitch it could have been 4 or 5 in the mix.

I wish I had seen Zlatan play but sadly not.

Luckily I saw him against us in North Carolina this preseason. Legendary player.

I'm missing a H . Defensive midfield player who had a good eye for goal too, played for Bayern and Inter in the late 80s and 90s.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hows about a hard bar steward 11 , all who could play but would scare the arse out of a lot of fancy dan players?

 

 

                                               Schumacher

                       Chopper   Gentile             Montero   Pearce

                                          

                                              Mackay

                             Souness      Bremner      Giles  

                                 Maradona           Ferguson

^ Some team.

 

Pity the mid-fielders up against that mid-field.

 

There's a famous picture of Dave Mackay grabbing Bremner by the throat after a bad tackle. It was Bremner who was "tapped" in the head by McCreadie in the 1970 FA Cup Final Reply.

 

A few other hard cases who could make the team are Tommy Smith, Norman Hunter and Tom Forsyth.

 

Will post my ultimate 11 later.

If only there was room for Pelé guess he gets his hardness from a bottle, ah you meant tough hard rather than *ahem*.

No place for Stam, Jones or Keane?

The latter three played when football had gone a bit softer. Maradona is there as the match winner, Billy Whitehurst could have been there but he couldn't play as well as Big Dunc.

Good picks mate. I like the formation too. Pretty strong all round.

I'm surprised more people haven't put Ronaldinho in their teams.

So from who I've seen:

 

Buffon

 

Lahm - Nesta - Terry - Maldini

 

Xavi - Keane

 

Messi - Zidane - C. Ronaldo

 

Ronaldo

 

But if I had to take into account all-time players:

 

Yashin

 

Cafu - Beckenbauer - Baresi - Maldini

 

Matthaus

 

Di Stefano - Maradona

 

Messi - Pele - Cruyff

 

Obviously not going for balance with that second side.

I was torn between Ronaldinho, Rivaldo, Baggio, Iniesta, Hagi, Lampard and a personal favourite Recoba. Edited by MayosNoun
