X you've seen all these guys?
You're missing Platini.
Platini or Xavi? I had to go with my boy although Platini was great. I also left out di Stefano and Garrincha.
Assuming that what you were going for was a GOAT XI, Roberto Carlos over Maldini is shameful.
Shameful? It's just personal preference.
Hence, the "assuming you're going for GOAT" part. If it's personal preference, that's of course okay! I just figured based on the players you picked that you were trying to pick the best at each position.
Not the best, but a collection of my favorite players essentially.
How can anyone like Van Bommel?
Haha only if he played for your side. Loved him for Oranje, hated his guts whenever he played for PSV, Barca or Bayern.
Seemed like a good leader on the pitch as well. Also every team needs a bad guy.
OP says since you started watching football... I truly started watching it and following it in 1989-1990, so won't do guys that I've seen on tape only, like Platini, Cruyff, etc.
Jorginho (brazilian RB)
I realize there are some better player than the guys on "my team", but it's "my" team, not necessarily the best players.
And yes, Italian flavored, as most Croatian kids back in the day grew up either Milan or Juve fans (or Celtic or Liverpool).
