Oi Big Matthew, welcome!

Interesting choices, although Miguel Veloso made me giggle.

Also, who are Cardoso and Mendes?

Miguel Veloso????? Surely enough Sporting has had better center mids than Joao Moutinho IMO, Balakov quickly comes to mind.
Figo was a great player but didn't to much at Sporting either, Pedro Barbosa did more than Veloso and maybe even Figo.

oh yeah, bem vindo ao canto Portuga.

If I go by what the history books say, then this is my all time Sporting squad (3-4-3):

Vítor Damas
Mário Lino - José Carlos - Hilário
Jesus Correia - Travassos - Balakov - Albano
Yazalde - Peyroteo - Vasques


***

If I go by what I've seen with my own eyes, than this is my very personal all time XI (3-3-4):

Meszaros
César Prates - André Cruz - Rui Jorge
Pedro Barbosa - Oliveira - Balakov
Paulinho Cascavél - Manuel Fernandes - Jordăo - Liedson


***

Finally, Sporting's website recently made a mega poll to elect the club's All Time XI. Each week they selected 5 players for each position (4-4-2) and these were the chosen ones, by more than 70,000 voters:

Vítor Damas
Carlos Xavier - Beto - André Cruz - Hilário
Figo - Travassos - Balakov - Cristiano Ronaldo
Peyroteo - Liedson



For me Figo, and above all CR, did not do enough while at the club to deserve being there, but of course their overall careers weighed in their choice. The selections of Carlos Xavier, and above all Beto, are pure jokes.

+1 for Luisinho. Great CB.
Not sure if he played enough years for the team to be considered, though.

Yes, he was definitely one of the best I've seen in that position playing in Portugal.
