Most people in this team are here on the basis of "well they weren't shit" over actually being good. There are 2 players who based on stats should be in here but aren't touching it with a ten foot pole for ethical reasons.

What do you both have against Joe Gomez? Matip fair enough I can understand (although I don't agree), but an over the hill Carragher?

I’ll admit I’m probs being too much of a nostalgia merchant in this scenario.

Not going to be the worlds most recognisable list of names, but this would be my approximation for us:

Wood - McCormack

Snodgrass - Phillips - Howson - Hernandez

Taylor - White - Janssen - Ayling

Schmeichel


I’m sure I’ve missed someone

I assume Skrtel is in there to deal with Pickford when Pickford chops VVD?

there is no other explanation for his inclusion 🤷‍♂️

most contestable position is CB but yea Skrtel was criminally underrated on this board. Lucas is the more debatable inclusion there. i'd probably chuck Coutinho in midfield for Lucas and add Mane if i did it again

Weird thing is most of the team is from the old brigade but think the current team is better than the one who won the treble in 2012/13.

-------- Alisson ---------
Alexander-Arnold - Van Dijk - Agger - Robertson
Henderson - Gerrard - Fabinho
Salah - Suarez - Mane

Reina, Skrtel, Milner, Wijnaldum, Coutinho, Firmino, Sturridge

Agger and Skrtel at their best were a great pairing. Combined in 2011/2012 to win the League Cup, and made the FA Cup final.
Unfortunately Agger was always injured, and Skrtel would have the occasional brain fade. I still take both ahead of Matip, Gomez, Lovren, and a declining Carragher.
Lucas Leiva, Raheem Sterling, and Dirk Kuyt could easily slot in on the bench somewhere.

Jermaine Beckford gets in over Wood for mine.



We were the only non top-Flight Premier League to Knock Man Utd Under Fergie out of the FA Cup (we were in league 1 at the time)

What a day That was ! (January 3, remember the date)

How about your bench?

I mean I’d have included him if he hadn’t left us in 2010 😉
