Well, you can only line up 11 players you now
Nilis was without any doubt better than Wilmots, technically. I actually never liked Wilmots all that much. But surely you remember what Wilmots did at the World Cup 2002. Nillis never even came close to doing that for the NT.
Preud'homme or Pfaff ... very close call ... but if you ask me which one was the better, Pfaff of 1986 or Preud'homme of 1990, I'd go for Preud'homme. Just remember the game Holland - Belgium at the 1990 WC. We won 1-0, but without Preud'homme we would have lost 3-1 or something.
I never saw for real players like Coppens, Mermans, Lambert ... I can't add what I didn't see. Only exception is Van Himst on the bench, but that's from hear say from people who did see him play.
Scifo at his best was better than Degryse, and Coeck, though a great player, was also not better than the players I've got.
Btw, everybody seems to react to my team, but the point of this thread was making your own!
