    Messi Johan Cruyff George Best Ronaldinho Puskas Cristiano Ronaldo
    Eusebio Pele Di Stefano Maradona

    Before you neg my post;

    - Beckenbauer would not stay in goal, he'd sit on the half-way line.
    - It wouldn't require a defence because the opposition would never have the ball. Plus, if the opposition did get lucky, they'd get the odd goal, but it would be nothing but a consolation because this team will have scored 10+ goals already.

    On the other hand, I'd like to see this:

    Kahn
    Vidic Huth Materazzi Pepe Danny ****tu Shawcross Elekobi
    Yaya Toure Beckenbauer
    Akinfenwa

    What about you guys?

    Cafu Beckenbauer Baresi Roberto Carlos

    Zidane Gerrard Matthaus

    Messi

    Puskas Di Stefano

    Honourable mentions: Gheorghe Hagi, George Weah, Pele, Maradona, Ronaldo (Brazilian), C. Ronaldo, Cruyff.

    I've missed so many awesome players off this list, it's just impossible to pick. Puskas and Di Stefano were the first players I wrote down. What a partnership. :sogood:

    tbf, this wasn't 'pick the best 11 players of all time'... it was ''if YOU could pick any 11 players of all time'... as a Liverpool fan I have seen Gerrard do amazing things and I think he deserves his place in my team. He might not be in the top 4 midfielders of all time but I'd still pick him.
