Who would you pick if you were manager of a team which would be highly rated by many on paper but rather insubstantial on the pitch?

Beckham would certainly be in it.

A real team?

Brazil come to my mind. They are not bad. But they are supposed to play better than that on paper.

Portuguess: I hope they actually win something.

Inter: same reason with Brazil.


I can't pick players. Sorry.

Casillas

Paulo Ferriera - King - Materazzi - Lucio

Beckham - Gravesen - Figo

Owen - Inzaghi - Rooney

This is a really hard question. Even on Xtratime, for every member who worships a player there's one who wouldn't hire him to sweep their driveway. I've yet to think of even a goalkeeper who fits the bill.

-------------------Valdes-------------

Zebina------Squilacci------Samuel----Bridge

Camoranesi--------Xavi---------Reyes-----

-------------------Stankovic--------------

------------Baros----------Gilardino-------

I've tried to base that off reputations players have here at XT so obviously many of them are very good. These are just the ones I think people go overboard for.

Actually, Camoranesi has been one of our best players over the course of the season.

Although I wouldn't expect you to know that Roby. :D

no Henry in anyone's team :eekani:

Glen Johnson is a must for the right back berth, he even got subbed for a CB tonight barely older than him.

There should be a rule to the thread that you have to go on how players are rated on the board to eliminate all the boring Beckham/Owen/Rooney/Henry/Raul posts.

The thread says "players rather insubstantial on the pitch", Henry does not belong to this category.
Thi is O-B-J-E-C-T-I-V-I-T-Y, a thing you can hardly find in the Arsenal Forum.

If anything, Camoranesi is underrated here.

As for Rooney, if you say he will be as good as Maradona or Pele, then he is certainly overrated. But to be honest, I won't be surprised at all if some day he wins european or wolrd footballer of the year .

Khimik-al is the adjective for it.

... and a bit Khomical.

khimik thinks Cyagn has been ok this year, and he likes Gilberto more than me, we do have differences of opinion in there, it's not all cheerleading y'know.

however it is unarguable with Henry's record, top goalscore and assistman in Europe in the last five years, no-one can argue with that :D
