If England didn't have a national team and instead just had counties, what would be the best team?

Merseyside would have a strong case.........

----------------------I.Turner-------------------------


Hibbert-------Stubbs------Carragher----------M. Ball


Osman-------Murphy------Gerrard-------McManaman


---------------Fowler--------Rooney--------------


Greater Manchester would be a good team with Giggs, Scholes, Butt, P. Neville, G. Neville, Bardsley, Mellor W.Brown.....but I can't think of a another striker, right winger, or goalkeeper.

I think he meant players actually from that county. ;)

And for Merseyside I'd take Kevin Nolan instead of Murphy, seeing as he was actually born in Chester. :D

Greater Manchester (I actually did this on Championship manager once lol, how sad)

-------------------Kiely (Salford)
G.Nev(Bury)---Brown(Mcr)----Higginbothan(Mcr)---Jordan(Mcr)
--------------Butt (Mcr)------Simone Perrotta (Ashton-Under-Lyne)
Osman(Wigan)----------Scholes(Oldham)--------Giggs-(Mcr)
------------------------Macken(Mcr)

Subs:
Nash (Stockport)
P.Nev (Bury)
Hunt (Bolton)
Holland (Bury)
Flitcroft (Bolton)
Mellor(Mcr)
Webber (Mcr)

Plus in reserve we'd have the likes of Pollitt, Onuoha, Jagielka, Billy Jones, Boyce, Griffin, Tonge, Pugh, Lee Croft, Scowcroft, Vernon and MARK ROBINS!

Interestingly of that 16, 5 represent other nations. Also, Greater Manchester has the highest number of League clubs per capita in Britain with: City, United, Oldham, Bolton, Bury, Stockport, Wigan, Rochdale.

Finally, De Jackal, Osman is from Wigan, which is nowhere near Merseyside.

Although it is one of the highest per capita in England, it is not first. South Yorkshire has five clubs in a population of 1.3m, a better ratio than Manchester's eight clubs in a population of 2.5m. Denbighshire (just Wrexham in 120,000 people) and Bristol (2 in 400,000 people) also have better ratios. Trust me to be the one to nit-pick. ;)

If we're allowed players naturalised by residence, Hertfordshire could wipe the floor with most counties. Otherwise, talent's a bit scarce. :(

What would a London team be like? It wouldn't have Henry, Vieira, Cygan, Makalele, Aliadiere, Flamini, would it? :howler:
