Krasic, bit out of left field. Unless you're a Serb :p
Not a Serb (technically im supposed to support Argentina since that is my wifes nationality and Im not a big Socceroos fan), I just love the way Krasic plays. Perfect natural RW for mine.

Its no secret that my 3 fave players in the world atm are Krasic, Luiz and Hamsik in that order

Drogba the only BBM? Disappointing as usual, Embers. What happened to your love for Carlton Cole and Demba Ba?

Surprised to not see James Tomkins and Scott Parker as well.

Socrates at RB? :confused:

van Basten was amazing. Shame he retired at 28, having said that though, he retired young and is considered at all time great, amazing. The guy used to score scissors for fun. And we can't forget THAT volley.

------Preud'homme


Current players

--Hazard---Messi----Forlan

------------Fellaini
Vertonghen--Kompany---Puyol
------------Buffon (not because he is/was great but because he looks like a genuinely nice guy)

Well, fair enough that a person's favorite players come from the team the support. That said, for a second XI



Casillas
Lahm - Nesta - Huth - Taiwo
Young - Seedorf - Hamsik - Ozil
Pato - Pedro

Current favourite 11 would just be all Liverpool players.

I dont really have other players as favourites who dont play for my club. Messi is a delight to watch, I love Alonso and wish he never left. Outside of that, nobody is really jumping out at me. Kewell because he is awesome, ex-lfc and an aussie.

I did mention Alonso, Messi and Kewell.... erm I like Benayoun, Pique is a good defender.
Lol yeah but Alonso is ex Pool, Messi is well, Messi and Kewell is an Aussie :p

Tim Cahill is an aussie but I hate him :D

Ok let me think... Aguero is awesome. Always been a fan of Peter Crouch, big fan of Riise and Odemwingie or however you spell is cool despite his shitty haircut.
