Iím pretty certain we were still playing 3-5-2 at that point and Milner was playing RWB. I want to say Turbo started the season there but broke his leg?
Heís played full back for Liverpool very successfully. Added to the fact I couldnít really think of a better right back.

Some creative license but

My team wouldn't necessarily play the best together, but i'm doing this on my best 11 as below based on players i've seen

Best goalkeeper

Digby

Best defenders

Colin Calderwood
Shaun Taylor
Paul Bodin
David Kerslake

Best midfielders

Steve Foley
Alan Mcloughlin
Micky Hazard
Glenn Hoddle

Best forwards

Duncan Shearer
Steve White

Subs
Foderingham, Austin, Ritchie, Jones, Kamara, McHale, Culverhouse

Manager
Ardiles

I only saw Don Rogers play once (in 1976) so can't include him based on that, and my main 11 is from the 80's/90's as i went a lot more then than i do now.

3. Bodin
4. McLoughlin
5. Calderwood
6. Gittens
7. Jones
8. Shearer
9. White
10. McLaren

I loved that song, perhaps because of how genuinely ill-suited Anthony McNamee would be to this theoretical game of 11-clone football. A small, weak winger with a habit of drifting in and out of games and dubious end product. He'd be absolutely useless in every position apart from on the wings and maybe a second striker.

Would get smashed by a team of David Dukes.

The original "we all dream of a team of Gary Breens" was far more apt as he played in almost every position for Coventry including stand in goalkeeper back in the late 90s.

I can't begin to imagine Macnamee even standing in a goal without looking like an u13 leagues goalkeeper.

                       Rogers (free role)

                       Fjortoft

From the late 90s on, trying to include a mix of eras.

1. Wes Foderingham
2. Paul Caddis
3. Paul Bodin
4. Kevin Horlock
5. Shaun Taylor
6. Gordon Greer
7. Matt Ritchie
8. Massimo Luongo
9. Charlie Austin
10. Simon Cox
11. George Ndah

I have what I suspected is a very rose-tinted eight year old's view of George Ndah being absolutely dynamite when he was fit.

Ironic/Factually Incorrect chants are the best chants.

A team of Michael Pooks could probably beat a team of McNamees.
