    Ramos--Vidic--Ferdinand--Evra

    Essien
    Fab------Xavi
    Silva

    Rooney----Messi

    Based on:
    - a fully fit Ferdinand
    - the full-backs as wing-backs.
    - fluid interchanging of positions in attack, e.g. Messi is not a centre forward.

    Alves in for Maicon and this is exactly my team.

    Would have Reina, Rooney, Xavi, Ramos (just for the versatility), Suarez/Villa/Cavani on the bench.

    I actually cannot believe the amount of teams missing out Iniesta. A team with both Xavi and Iniesta is better than a team without (except an all-time world 11). They have incredible synergy, if nothing else

    --------------------Casillas-----------------------

    Lahm-------Vidic------Pique------------Cole

    ----------------Xabi Alonso-----------------

    -------------Xavi--------Iniesta-------------

    Messi-------------Rooney--------------Ronaldo


    Subs - Neuer, Maicon, Lucio, Schweinsteiger, Fabregas, Silva, Villa


    Reasons:

    - There would have definitely been a time when I would have put Essien in instead of Xabi Alonso, purely because he'd be a rock in there. But injuries have struck him and he isn't the player he used to be. Unfortunately, there's a real lack of great DM players atm. The best to choose from are probably Busquets, Xabi Alonso and Schweinsteiger.
    - Rooney - I absolutely hate him. And before this season I would have picked Villa even though he had poor form. But I simply cannot at the moment because he's a world class player. Definitely not on the level of Messi and Ronaldo but one of the best.

    Messi Rooney

    A bit unusual only using three defenders, but using a defensive triangle in midfield with players of this quality should be quite hard to penetrate.
    The idea would be for the forwards to play about level with Ronaldo and Young playing as attacking wingers (what with Young's goals this season both domestic and international, he seems suited for this role). Then we take advantage of Messi and Rooney's distribution as well as their attacking skill. As for bringing the ball up, I can't imagine a midfield better suited for this.

    Julio Cesar

    Alves/Sagna -- Vidic -- Pepe -- Marcelo

    Xabi Alonso
    Xavi -- David Silva

    Messi -- C. Ronaldo -- Pedro

    Alves/Sagna depends on whether it's an overly-offensive setup or slightly restrained since I believe they are the best at those respective roles.

    Subs: Casillas, Lucio, Schweinsteiger, Robben, Rooney, Fabregas, Sneijder.
    Lol. Cesar is **** nowadays.

    Definitely not Terry, I prefer Evra to Cole, Villa is overrated IMO and Casillas is miles better than Cech.

    So far a lot of teams ( including my own) have included Piqué+xy as CBs. Seeing that few players are mentioned as frequently I´m asking myself whether he´s really that good, or if we just give him too much credit for what he does. Would he be more exposed if he played for a different team? Would he be able to shine in a defence which isn´t being helped by the entire team?
    Especially since Bayern haven´t conceded a goal for more than 1000 minutes with a CB pairing consisting of Boateng and Badstuber. A lot of people on these forums don´t think highly of Boateng and I wonder whether people´s opinion on some CBs would be different if they played in another team.
