Off the top of me head, no doubt i'll revise this all in my head as the thread progresses.

The amount of people not picking Roy need to be ashamed of themselves like

Anyone picking Thierry Henry needs their heads seeing tee.

As a sub - Gattuso, for the harder games I'd switch him for Del Piero, and play him behind Clarence and Andrea.

Rest of the bench...

That's hard to do though, obviously there are loads of players who could just as easily have gone in and if I was writing this another day I may well have included any or all of Xavi, Inniesta, Costacourta, Nesta, Cannavaro, Desailly, Rijkaard, Gullit, Van Basten, Ronaldinho, Figo, Batistuta to name a few!

Midfield
4-3-3

GK – Jan van Beveren

FBs – Carlos Alberto, Ronald Koeman, Franz Beckenbauer & Franco Baresi

Midfield – Johan Cruijff, Bobby Charlton & Giovanni Rivera

Forwards – Romario, Kenny Dalglish & Marco van Basten


Subs: Michel Platini (midfield), Paul Breitner (defence), Dino Zoff (goalkeeper), Lionel Messi & Thierry Henry (forwards)


Pele had already made his debuts before I was born, while Maradona, Zidane, Best, and both the Ronaldo’s just not good enough to get into my team :cool:

Trying to pick from the likes of Moore, Beckenbauer, Pele, Maradonna, Messi, Ronaldo, C. Ronaldo, Gullitt, Van Basten, Cruyff, Ronaldinho, Romario, Best, Dalglish, Batistuta (off the top of my head), and putting them into a team is nigh on impossible like.
