Your ultimate XI of all time.


Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Recommended Posts

Good point, not evey manager would agree though, I'm not denying how good Gerrard was, easily world class, but you would pick him over Lamps? Gerrard didn't get second place in the player of the year votes in 05, nor did he score as many goals, his assists tally isn't much more impressive, people say he's better because he played in a worse team, I think that's nonsense.

This is a very good team and I'd probably do the same, except change Terry for Ferdinand and Xavi for Scholes for obvious bias reasons  :smile:

from players I've watched enough?

 

 

.................................buffon

 

thuram..........nesta,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,terry..........maldini

 

.............................makelele

................xavi.........................zidane

 

........messi..................................c.ronaldo

..............................ronaldo

 

 

goalkeeper and central defence were nearly impossible to pick. really difficult to overlook ronaldinho, totti, shevchenko etc... but cristiano ronaldo and messi basically walk in immediately and demand you can only pick one other forward. and xavi, zidane and makelele for me are easy picks so people like keane, vieira, ballack, lampard, deco and iniesta are, amazingly, instantly discounted.

 

anyway that's vaguely the best 11 I've seen in their positions without cheating and putting people out of position, but I could probably come up with a better team. cafu would be a rightback in that team for example.

Did one before, but this is the one I probably like more. Guess it's not necessarily the best of all time, but more of a 'favourite' ultimate XI - without turning it into an ultimate Chelsea XI.

Thuram

Zambrotta

A. Cole

Nesta

Lucio

Gerrard

Lampard

Hagi

Stoichkov

Seedorf

Okocha

Batistuta

Ronaldo

Drogba

Ze Roberto

Rivaldo

Litmanen

Vieri

Van Nistelrooy

Owen

Henry

Figo

Rui Costa

...Some of the other players I had a liking/grudging admiration for, from boyhood years and up, but this is my actual favourite XI (Mouthwatering):

Yeah this seems pretty much right as far as players I've seen, too. A lot of people might opt for Keane in there but if you're going for balance, Makelele's game complements the other two better anyway.

Where is my Alex? Nobody has mentioned him! :slap_face:

-----------------------  Iashin -------------------

------Scirea ------ Beckenbauer  ----- Maldini

------Conte------------Pirlo----------Davids

----------Pelè --------Cruyff-------Del Piero

                             Vialli

 

I know, there are so many better players considering all time. In primis Maradona, Platini and Van Basten. But i think, though it's only a joke, the team above is equilibrated: technical and physical players, and first of all all of them with really good psichological components. Maybe you can substitute Vialli with Drogba (but you know, I still love him) and Conte with Lampard, Gerrard, Makelele, Tardelli or Riikaard ... but I'm sure we're all happy to see Conte!

 

However, for me what builds up a dream team is not only qualities of players, but the amalgama. In this sense i'm not surprised that quite nobody has mentioned Ibrahimovic or players like him, strong but egoist.
