Picked the players that would suit the tactics I want my team to 'play'

Scholes > Alonso and I wanted two box to box beats in midfield. In short, I picked the 3 best midfielders the EPL has seen.

I'm currently thinking of a lineup that can include Nesta, Lugano, Vidic, Chiellini, T. Silva and De Rossi in defense.

My favorite lineup (of players I've seen)

-----------------Buffon-------------
Thuram----Nesta----Maldini*----Zambrotta

-----------Vieira----Gattuso--------
---------------Redondo-------------

---------------Totti----------------
-------Sheva------Weah-----------

*I rather Maldini as LB, but to be fair I did see him playing more as a CB.

Bench:Schmeichel, Billy, Lugano, Makelele, De Rossi, Baggio, Pires, Pirlo, Lampard, Giggs, Rui, Pippo, Drogba.

Exclusions of Henry are criminal.

This is the best formation I could think of at the top of my head, and it consists of players I have followed since I began to closely observing football, meaning no Van Basten's Maradona's whom I never had the pleasure of watching.

--------------------------Buffon-----------------------
--------------Thuram-----Nesta-----Maldini------------
-----Cafu-----------Pirlo---------Makelele------Carlos--
---------------------------Zidane---------------------
-------------Shevchenko----------Eto'o---------------

I like this team, especially the inclusion of Redondo and Totti, and also Gattuso because many forget what a great DM he was 10-5 years ago...

but how do you exclude Zidane?

Marchegiani
Maldini - Nesta - Thuram - Favalli
Albertini - Veron
Rui Costa
Bergkamp - Baggio
Salas

Actually it's not my dream XI, just my football heroes. And at least it's still better than Pep's Barca.
especially Marcelo Salas. He's got all the swag.
You can read that name from the left / right and the result is same = Salas.

Difficult to omit Makelele, Thiago Silva, Fabregas, Ronaldo (You know which), Thuram, Eto'o, Ibrahimovic etc, but well, there's only room for 11.

The number of Buffon's suprises me. Not denying that he is/was an amazing keeper and one of the best ever, but I never knew so many on here considered him THE best (atleast from who they've seen).

Yeah, most Serie A fans have a boner for Buffon, including me.

My number two is Schemeichel though I used to love him during his prime, such a shame that his kid never made it big.

It's a shame that i believe most of you guys never seen Lothar Matthäus. He was the most complete midfielder and very versatile player. He can mark, tackle, drive forward, pass, cross and score. Truly MASTER class.

Yeah, he was a fantastic player. And best of all, a total hot head.

Yeah, he can be total hot head. He was the iron man, very very tough to beat. The only player that played in 5 WC : 82, 86, 90, 94, 98.
Maradona said about Matthäus "He is the best rival I've ever had. I guess
that's enough to define him" in his
book Yo soy el Diego (I am Diego).

just thinking what a sick team you could make with Italy's 2002 and 06 teams with all the players in their primes...

-----------------Buffon---------------------
--Zambro--Nesta--Cannavaro--Maldini--
-----Gattuso---De Rossi---Pirlo------------
------------------Totti-----------------------
-------Pippo*---------------Del Piero---------

*tossup between him and Vieri, (who is probably the better player overall) but the idea of Pippo's movement withh De Rossi, Pirlo, Totti, and Del Piero passing to him is mouth watering


that team would be insanely difficult to beat...

Buffon at his best is the undisputed best for me - zero doubts about that. I had seen most of Schmeichel at his prime as well, and he's probably the next in the list. Among players that I've seen, that is.
