what? no more Szezeny?
I only liked him when he first came on the scene. Probably like him a bit more if he came back and performed well.
Yeah. Don't watch other leagues, and there aren't many players around now who I like that much in other leagues. I mean, I like Muller, Robben, Iniesta and a few others, but there aren't too many these days.

I watch a little of other leagues, but nowhere near to the extent that I watch the PL. Defenders I went with Spurs players because, I dunno, who gets excited by defenders from other teams? For the rest I went with players whom I love to watch play, not necessarily my favourite, otherwise Kane would replace Suarez and Dele, Messi.

Lloris
Walker - Dier - Alderweireld - Rose
Kante
Eriksen - Silva
Messi - Suarez - Bale​

Doesn't have to be players from your own club(though mine is), just a team you'd love to see play full of all your all time favourite players.

-----------------------Drogba
----------Hazard---------------------Zola
-----------------------Lampard
----------Makelele----------------Kante
Cole------------Luiz--------Carvalho---------Ivanovic
------------------------Cech
Drogba. He is the king for me. Such an amazing big game player and scored in nearly all his cup finals plus that penalty. Also just a fantastic human off the pitch too. Loved everywhere.
Hazard. The most talented Chelsea footballer I've seen and so humble and cheeky off the pitch.
Zola. My most loved player, was a magician. Universally loved and seems like a nice guy too. Nice to have him back.
Lampard. Mr Chelsea to me, the best goal scoring mid I've seen and also performed when it mattered. Got a feeling he'll manage us too one day.
Kante. Just the happiest person in the world, always smiling and comes across very down to earth. World class at what he does too. Love him.
Makelele. Was an absolute gun and had his position named after him.
Cole. As good as any LB I've seen and another who always stood up in big games. Still struggling to replace him.
Luiz. Such a character and a great leader around the club. The geezer seems like a real fun guy to be around and can be a great player on his day, or suffer a brain fart. Was huge in our Prem win under Conte and in that Munich final.
Carvalho. Was a gun CB and played a huge part in our great teams of the 00's. The partnership with Terry was as good as any.
Ivanovic. Apart from his final season and a bit Bran was a beast of a RB who could always be counted on for a huge goal. That Napoli goal will stay with me forever.
Cech. Best Chelsea keeper I've seen and a legend. His penalty set against Bayern is something that'll be talk about forever, in their heads.

Tough one...

Salah Suarez Fowler
Firmino
Gerrard Alonso
Mascherano
Hyypia Carragher Agger
Allison

Ive gone 3-4-3 as nobody really likes full backs anyways. Nah, I did love Riise and his left peg and I love a local passionate lad so big fan of TAA. But I couldnt squeeze everyone in.

Allison wins because he's so bloody good. I did love Reina but his last couple of years were a bit wonky. I'll also love Dudek for Istanbul but he really wasnt that great a keeper. So Allison takes it.

Hyypia - Towering CB, when he cried on the shoulders of his teammates after his last game. Love him!
Carragher - Local lad, legend. Got the absolute maximum out of himself.
Agger - his love for LFC makes us love him. Has LFC tattoos.

Masch - bulldog. Was gutted when he moved on. Genuinely world class.
Alonso - It's Xabi. Of course he is a favourite.
Gerrard - the GOAT.

Firmino - those teeth, those lookaways, those celebrations, the work rate.
Salah - impossible to not love. Just such a ripping bloke.
Suarez - a tornado of football brilliance.
Fowler - God.

I don't really like the game itself to watch a lot of full games involving neutrals so this is going to be predominantly Spurs.

Lloris
Lahm King Vertonghen Bale
Eriksen Carrick Davids
Messi Kane Son
