Been to the pub tonight to watch Chelsea v Barcelona (great match) and we discussed our best ever Prem XI. We had a good mix of City / United / Liverpool / Bolton and even one Chelsea fan and we came up with :

Schmeicel

Irwin
Bruce
Adams
Pearce

Le Tissier
Keane
Viera
Giggs

Shearer
Henry

What do you reckon? Think Abramovich has enough cash to buy all them? :smashin:

Man this is a good question!!!

Can't really narrow it down to just 11 players as it's all a bit subjective and slightly man utd bias!!

Schmichael (currently Cech but not proven over numerous season)

Irwin
Adams (or Terry)
Bruce (or Pallister)
G Neville


Beckham
Veira (or Keane)
Scholes (or Gerrard)
Giggs


Any two from the following list Henry,Shearer,Cole (still scoring at the top level), Van Nistelrooy, Rooney?.

Will probably edit it once i think of some more!!!

Tricky one this! I've included a few subs because it's impossible to pick just 11!


_________Schmeichel__________

G. Neville__Adams__Terry__A. Cole

Giggs__Vieira __Cantona__Gerrard

________Henry__Shearer_______



Subs: Seaman, v. Nistlerooy, Bergkamp, Zola, I.Wright, Keane, Pires

This is spooky cos we were discussing current Premiership XI.
I went for:

Cech
Finnan Carragher Terry Cole (if fit)

Makelele
Gerrard Lampard

Rooney Van Nistlerooy Henry

That team would kick arse!

Wouldn't get in my team, great player but not better than Henry, Zola, even Di Canio....

I did see, but it was aimed at the majority. Personnaly I'd have Cantona over Van Nistelrooy.
Definately! I'd have him sitting behind the main striker. I'm an Arsenal fan but i thought Cantona was an immense player for Utd. Just magnificent!
