    Name the 11 starters of your dream team since you started watching football + 7 subs

    For me it is:

    -----------------------Schmeichel-----------------------

    Cafu-----------J.Stam---------Maldini-----------R.Carlos

    ---------------E.Davids----Zidane-----R.Keane----------

    ---------------Del Piero---Cantona----Raúl---------------

    Subs: Casillas, Ciro Ferrara, Gary Pallister, C. Ronaldo, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Ronaldo.

    To summarize my selection further:

    GK: Call me a homer, but I can't think of any goalkeeper better all around at his position since the early 90's than Schmeichel.

    Defense: Cafu and Carlos would offer great versatility going forward, while a combination of Stam and Maldini would keep the defensive line tight in almost every situation.

    Midfield: I'd love to see the most reckless thug try to **** with Zidane with Keane at his side. A combo of Davids & Keane would offer excellent defensive responsibility and also give Zidane the required freedom to focus on offense.

    Strikers: Del Piero + Cantona + Raúl? Nobody would be able to defend against that.

    Great thread, this is so hard to do though, I'm honestly just going by fond memories at these player's prime and what I was able to watch there is homerism [sic] involved of course, and there is also tribute mention like Maldini because I never really got to see him play much but c'mon he's like the equivalent of Lidstrom......but I still think this is truly MY dream team




    ---------------------Chilavert----------------

    ---------Naybet-----Maldini------R.Carlos-----

    -------------------R. Keane-----------------

    ---------C.Ronaldo-----Valeron---Zidane------

    ---------------Ronaldo---Messi------------

    ------------Van Nistelrooy----------------


    Subs: Bebeto, Djalminha, Xavi, J.Stam, Romario, Suker, Ronaldinho

    Neuer, Ayala, Makelele, Lampard, Scholl, Robben, Henry

    really wanted to put Mendieta or Vicente, but they were plagued by injuries so they aren't dream team material. Zola just came to mind so I'll post this before writing 100 names..
    Ian Harte was an awesome choice. :handclap:

    You want a hate list too? :sarcasm:

    My dream team changes according to my mood. Today it is as follows:

    Buffon
    Sammer
    Thuram-Maldini
    Solano-Mauro Silva-Gullit-Brehme
    Maradona
    Shearer-Romario

    subs: Casillas, Vierchowod, Torricelli, Luis Enrique, Messi, Robbiati, Kelly

    This is not the best by any stretch whatsoever, but the one I'd like to see the most.

    Iker
    Cafu-Nesta-Pique-Roberto Carlos
    Makelele
    Gerrard-Xavi
    Messi
    Suarez-Raul​

    Subs: Buffon, Cannavaro, Zanetti, Vieira, Rui Costa, Henry, Batistuta

    The actual best for me is a variation based upon that in some fashion, with a few (meaning a lot I think) players out and others in.

    Hmmmm...

    Neuer
    Zanetti - Stam - Nesta - Maldini
    Pirlo
    Gerrard - Seedorf
    Messi - Bergkamp - Dinho​

    Think this would be a joy to watch. All time obviously would be much different.

    --------Giresse-Tigana--------
    ----------Platini-------
    -----Messi-Ronaldo (brasilian)

    Dasaev is the most impressive goalie I've ever seen.
    I chose units for defense and midfield. Possibly the best defense ever lined up in a WC, the Carré Magique which was both great AND fun.
    And I chose Messi and Ronaldo (de Lima) over Ronaldo (whose character I hate), Van Basten (too injured), the Trezeguet/Henry combo (which Domenech broke up), the Cantona/Papin combo (highly underrated), etc...

    Out of curiosity, how far back do you go? Like in hockey if you were to make a team of stars, I'd hesitate to put anyone in who had their peak before the mid-90s outside of Lemieux, Messier, and Greztzky, possibly Bourque. I wouldn't even have Orr in there despite him being one of the all-time greats.

    I'm guessing you could go back a bit further here or no? I don't think the Prem got flooded with international players all that much till at least the mid-90s either right?

    There's stronger possible lineups, but I would enjoy this 11 far too much

    Hagi - Gerd

    Cruyff

    Breitner - Netzer - Ballack - D. Alves

    Sammer - Beckenbauer - T. Silva

    Neuer​

    I got into the sport watching tapes of the 70s german teams, so most of my all time favorites played for Bayern or Gladbach at some point in the 70s...or were born in the DDR. If I had to exclude the players I only saw on tape I'd go with

    Hagi - Fenomeno

    Ronaldinho

    R. Carlos - Ballack - Effenberg - D. Alves

    Sammer - Maldini - T. Silva

    Neuer​

    Speed, finesse and toughness. Good luck!
