  1. Santi's Left Foot

    Ah ok I should have actually read that properly. Usually the gist of these threads is to best the best XI. Sanchez is already one of my favourite players so I guess it makes no difference to my selection anyway.

    Edu gets on my subsitute bench. Ultimate job-doer. Romford Pele too.

    He wouldn't come close to mine, and how you can pick Overmars (irrespective of how good he was) above your avatar is beyond me.

    GDeep™ Wrong, But Rarely

    Got Pires on the right, Overmars left.

    Dixon, Campbell, Adams, Cole
    Pires, Vieira, Cesc, Overmars
    Henry, Bergkamp

    Anelka was bloody exciting for that period he was here, had me mesmerised, thought he was sensational as teen.

    I would have Wright and Anelka before Henry in my favorite XI!

    Missed Pires on the right, though you are kind of cheating there!
    To be honest we have had way better left sided players than right.
    Though I love Rocastle, Overmars and Limpar would be ahead of him,
    Brian Marwood had a sensational start to his Arsenal career, Georgie Armstrong would also be ahead of Rocky.
    Anelka is behind quite a few strikers I have seen over the years, John Radford as a youngster had way better goal numbers than Anelka, as did Wrighty (obviously). There are others too.
    Anelka's career was rather short, and he always came across, to me, as lacking the hunger of other strikers.
    He seemed content getting his goal, never really seemed to have that drive to push on and get 3 etc.

    If you are going for your favourite you can really have anyone you want.
    If the aim is to put down the best XI of players you have seen, it is rather impossible to build a case not to have Henry in there.
    I would probably have a few different players if it were my all time fave team, Wright would be in there, as would Jennings.

    You'll have to PM everyone your favourite team if you don't want me to harass you :)

    And you wonder why no team has replied to your management CV yet?

    I'd switch them. I think Pires was more reliant on playing on the left, where I feel Overmars was more a typical pacey winger type, and would floourish either side.

    I'm not sure Bergkamp, Fabregas and Vieira is defensive enough as a midfield 3 as great as it would be going forward.

    If Henry is your number 9 (sure you don't want him as your no11?) then no RVP or Wright....sad but true.....and come guys Anelka isn't in the same bracket

    I'm fancying Özil on the left wing, Özil v Pires v Sanchez v Overmars though........

    Or maybe Özil or Alexis on the right........and Overmars played some games on the right for Holland I think

    Sanchez in there doesn't sit easy with me tbh. If he stays a few years and continues this form he's an obvious contender, but if he left tomorrow would he still be in your team?

    Good question.

    I'ld drop him if he left.

    That reminds me, I'ld also like to make a substitution in my team. I drop Cashley and replace him with Nigel Winterburn.

    Have to like those on the pitch too:

    Mad Jens
    Dixon Kos Adams Winterburn
    Alexis DB10 Brady Pires
