I'm a Spurs fan, so I generally try to pretend the 90's didn't happen.

I don't know about statistically but that Man Utd team of the early to mid 90's, 93-95 really had something special about it.

------------------Schmeichel-----
G.Neville----Pallister---Bruce-----Irwin
Beckham----Keane----Scholes----Giggs
-------Hughes-------Cantona----------

Schmeichel IMO is undisputed as the greatest GK of the EPL era.

G.Neville whilst unpopulur with some was a very good RB and arguably the most consistent in the position in the EPL era. D.Irwin was an outstanding full back who could deliver a dangerous cross and was defensively sound. Add to that a great CB pairing of Pallister and Bruce who were well capable of scoring goals.

The midfield offers everything, amazing dead ball, passing and crossing ability as well as goals from the right in Beckham. Giggs scoring and creating with sheer pace and talent on the left. Scholes ability to control a temp and pick a pass/through ball (admittedly he probably played more of an attacking midfield role in those days), Keane additionally is IMO the dominant central midfield player of the EPL in the 1990's. Complete nutjob but an outstanding player.

The Hughes and Cantona were not only goalscorers, but got involved in build up play and creating chances for other players. Strong enigmatic characters who could scored classy goals at key moments.

I won't even touch on the bench, handy to have Bryan Robson to slot in..

Who'd make a combined Invincibles/Centurion team?

Pretty tough, especially what formation to play.

Lehmann
Lauren Kompany Campbell Cole
Vieira D.Silva
Sterling---------------KDB
Henry Aguero
Kills me to leave Bergkamp out, but Aguero has to be there next to Henry.

Bench for me would be

Ederson
Gilberto Silva
Pires
Bergkamp
Walker
Fernandinho
Laporte

Probably left someone very obvious out that I can't think of, but that's what I'd go with.
