It was funny I was calling PSG the Serie A dream team of the past 3 years to my friends and I just thought what would be the dream XI now?

GK - Handanovic
RB - Lichtsteiner
CB - Benatia
CB - Castan
LB - Zuniga
CM - Vidal
CM - De Rossi
CM - Pjanic
AM - Hamsik
FW - Rossi?
ST - Balotelli

Some questionable names from me i know, but what's yours? I tried not to have too many oldies. Would have liked to fit in Strootman, Higuain, Pogba too

I put Pjanic in the XI but Hernanes close behind.

If it's about current form, it looks pretty good, except maybe Tévez, Totti, or Palacio instead of Balotelli. If it's about how good they'll probably be during the season Balo by all means.

Other than that... De Sciglio for Zuñiga maybe? Pirlo shouldn't be that far from the starting eleven, even in current form. Callejón probably deserved a honorable mention as well.

As stated I was looking at a dream team going forward. Players like Totti, Buffon or Pirlo would not be in a PSG's plans for instance.

If I was to build a new team tomorrow (impossible) I would not sign Pirlo, Buffon or Totti unless a machine was invented to make them younger

Hamsik and Vidal just based on performances of the first pair of games or their history in serie A because right now they are utter shite.
Zuniga LOL

Right now the dream team is pretty much Roma.

Serie A dream team already exists, it is called Paris Saint-Germain:D.

Maybe Borja Valero should be considered and Strootman too.

Totti's been the best player in the league imo.

Campagnaro over Castan for me personally, but it's ok either way.

I'd put

-------------------Handanovic-------------------------
-Lich---------Benatia-----Campagnaro-----????----
---------------------------------------------------------
-------Strootman--De Rossi---Vidal-----------------
---------------Hamsik/Pjanic--------------------------
--------Rossi/Palacio------Totti----------------------

Nagatomo has been pretty solid at LB tbh since the season started. But I just couldn't name him there, and can't think of someone else. No LB has been really spectacular tho.

Gervinho over Pjanic? What are you smoking, give me some
I don't know man I love Pjanic, but Gervinho has been awesome too and they don' t even play the same position so Gervinho can't be picked over him.

My Team:

-------------------Handanovic-------------------------
----------Benatia-----Campagnaro-----????----
---Licht------------------------------------Armero--------------
----------Strootman--De Rossi---Vidal-----------------
-----------Balotelli------Totti----------------------

This is not based on performances in this season alone.

Strootman holds much bigger value to any team, in my opinion, and obviously to Roma.

Pjanic is nice, but he ain't no Strootman.

Much more pivotal and important position on the field in terms of what he brings, and mentally there's no comparing.. if Pjanic becomes consistent it's a debate for me, but I don't have much faith in that personally.

Seeing him cope without Totti the next month would be a big test for him.
