Right, so every club has problems, we all know that. The object of this exercise is to pick three players, preferably in the three different parts of the pitch or the goalkeeper, from the past to have played for the club you support who you'd just love to have now. You could have any reason, but try to do itfor positions where you think your club could so do with them now. Don't just do it out of nostalgia, like Milan fans choosing van Basten even though they have Shevchenko at his prime, etc. A good example would be say, Man UTD fans hoping they still had Schmeichel. Get the drift ?;) And try to pick players you've actually seen play, from your era.

Schmeichel, Cantona, Pallister from recent times.

................Schmeichel
Neville Ferdinand Pallister Heinze
.............Keano Scholesy
Ronaldo.......Cantona.......Rooney
...................Ruud

Had to include the King, although having Robson next to Keano seems mouthwatering.
Also Irwin as a LB and Heinze as a CB could be another possibility.

Well in the summer of 2000 Roma bought Batistuta, Emer$on and Samuel in one hit and won the scudetto straight away. we could really use them right now, but I'd make some changes and take; :hopefull:


Peruzzi: because we shouldn't ever have let him go and we need a keeper more than Batistuta now that Montella is back in form :)

Samuel: because he is completely unappreciated at Madrid and yet our defence is shit without him :(, and

Falcao: because Emer$on is a dirty mercenary and not half the player that Falcao was :star:

I would have picked D stafano or Hugo Sanchez even Butragueño instead of Fat Ronaldo but i consider what we really need is help at the back.

I'm gonna go for Hierro, move Heguera to midfield alongside Gravesen in the center, and Butragueno and Michel.

Casillas
Salgado-Samuel-Hierro-Carlos
Helguera-Gravesen
Zidane
Michel-Ronaldo-Butragueno

Looks like a 4-2-1-3, but actually more of a 4-4-2 with Michel lying deeper than it seems on the right and Zizou linking with Carlos on the left.

Rivera (fantasista), Donadoni (midfield) & Van Basten (striker).

Donadoni can rotate with either Gattuso or Seedorf. It's quite comforting to know that I feel our current team is pretty good and doesn't require wholesale changes as such mentioned in this thread. ;)

Spunky, Overmars and Bergkamp of 1997.

-------------Seaman
Kolo----Senderos--Campbell--Cole
--------Fabregas--Vieira
Overmars----------------Pires
--------Bergkamp 97
------------------Henry


Bergkamp 97 and Henry would be fukin freaky spazmong for defenders. :eekani:

That one's easy to beat, long shots on the empty goal should do. ;)

The concept of cloning is limited to sheep only as far as the world knows. :D That team will surely eat a lot based on the front line. :dielaugh:
