I'm starting this thread purely for fun. This isn't meant to be a "Best XI" thread or anything, just XI footballers who play way YOU LIKE. What I'm asking if MAKE A TEAM, not collection of 11 best attacking players in a formation which won't work with a midfield of kaka,cristiano ronaldo and xavi (like magazines and award committees often select). If you were a coach, unlimited budget, nothing stopping you (like fact certain players won't leave) what would your XI be?

If you are going to use players from previous time periods please specify. I will make two XIs. A current form team (last 2 to 3 years) and a timeless team (IE I'll specify "Sheva 99-06" or whatever). .

I plan to do two teams, a current form one and a all time team. All time team I keep making adjusts too, so i'll post later but here's my current team

1287351364340404.jpg


Manager: Ancelotti :D

What can I say, in terms of pure football I enjoy to watch vintage ancelotti football is type I prefer most. Over Barca, Man Utd, Mourinho etc. etc. Theres probably some bias/nostalgia in it but hey we all got our preferences

In my opinion, Drogba is simply best CF in world. I love Ibra, but Drogba does more a pure CF's job than Ibra who is a bit more of a magician.

Ronaldo would be a #7 striker, which is probably his best role. The Kaka/Sheva role. I could use messi here too, but I like Ron more. He's just such a machine, and when he's given this role (free forward) he usually contributes with a massive amount of goals and assists, headers, free kicks etc. etc. etc. I often find him too isolated when he plays pure winger role.

Sneijder for me is best #10 in world now. Inter douche, but he's special.

Midfield was hardest part for me cause I'm a big fan of CMs in general, different types etc.

Pirlo is don't need to explain, just cant leave him out..... Essien I don't need to explain. De Rossi actually could contribute 6 to 9 goals in a team like this where he isn't doing a pure DMs role. I thought HARD about lampard too, but decided to go with more muscle. Play possession, push forward when needed and be fine defensively...

Defense speaks for itself, and what i expect. Narrow team so wingbacks will take of it.

Buffon may have declined a bit from 'his prime' BUT i still find him most reliable keeper. Even if reflexes r slower, he never makes a real tactical error

Edit: I know I'm begging for insults for the usual 'stupidity triad' :D. Thats fine....

I'm actually VERY curious what everyones ideal team (present and past) are. Who would you play, how would you align them, responsibilities, lets have a little fantasy FM fun. No right or wrong

+ points if you include merkel, verdi

Manager: Allegri or Leonardo :D

TS and Nesta are given for me.

I know Chiellini is a CB now, but he started out as a LB if I remember correctly. With unlimited funds I just double his pay and tell him to play there again. I've always preferred Alves over Maicon for some reason. Like his style of play (- his whining and diving).

I don't have any real destroyer in CM, but those 3 can divide the defensive work between them as well as going forward. It could work :tongue:

With Chrissy and Messi on the wings, playing Ibra is impossible. Rooney is more direct and would do a lot better. Drogba could also work.

But a team with so many stars would never work. To many strong personalities.

I believe this is the best current team there is. Somehow I couldnt place Messi where Pato is standing...it's a feeling :tongue:.

Coach: Louis van Gaal

I acutally liked drawing formations, so I made up a best current Serie A team:

Up for balance too. Defense is experienced + CBs used to play together. On top it's a younger team but it's mostly experienced too. Cesc has some defensive qualities which is good. Pastore is flavour of the month I know, but lets say it's a team I'll do ATM, Pastore is on awesome form. Suarez+Pato seem similar, Suarez is IMO better as a SS, his good at assisting, Pato is more explosive, and possibly has more pace. Both have great goalscoring instincts. Needless to say I wanted to have a player that I'm sure will do anything for his team to win ;).


I have in mind a 4-3-3 formation but later.

Fuck with super dreamy line-up, I'll go with this.
Underrated or Mediocre dream teams if you're n00bz PoV FTW !



Manager : Allegri/Dellio Rossi. Because they're interchanging dynamic offensive football fans.

Some explanation :

I'm big fans of battering ram striker, even if they doesn't score much they have big influence to teams because they're open space to other player. This will be Almeida/Floccari jobs n Miccoli, Guberti, n Hamsik gonna exploit that space.

On mid-line I choose Hamsik as main-motor n playing ala Fabregas @ Arsenal doing a lot vertical rush as opposed with Guberti on left flank n Miccoli find space for himself seeking simple deadly trough pass n sometime there will be many interchanging action on final third from attacking personnel, n Hamsik not gonna forget his defensive duties too with his tenacity, gonna help alot Palombo the main DM.

Vargas will help offense a lot despite his role so deep on formation, n to compensate that the LB gonna always sit in the back n not too mention Yepes not too fast too.

For Zapata selection, yeah his lack of brain n natural positioning talent is worrying, but Yepes gonna make him seems alot better with his command, the raw athletic abilities of Zapata gonna used more properly that way. And Abs n Lichtsteiner is underrated.


Hell yeah TOP 3 Finish Baby !!!

Me and Milano did this and made the best team ever seen, sadly I've likely deleted the pm, but it was a sort of NFL inspired team, a 3-4-1-2 with 4 hulking midfielders then 3 long ball whores behind them playing as CB's. It was brilliant.

Pressure with 6 DMs just beating everyone up. Either back pass to super deep lying playmakers or just kinda beat the ball up into the box for pippo.


This team, will beat your team. Physically.

ok... fine, take out one of the front 3, and stick Nesta at the back, and swap Becks for Pirlo.

Still swag ridden :cool:

Mine's a lopsided 4-4-1-1. It is athletic and aggressive, and it brains very smartly indeed.

Coach: Mourinho

Without the ball the full backs would drop deeper. Busquets would play the anchor man to break up the oppositions play, while Toure would act like a destroyer to regain possession. Sneijder and Ronaldo dropping deep while Milito staying upfront.

With the ball Busquets would drop back to form a three man defense to allow Evra and Maicon to bomb forward. Toure would play a holding role because i think his passing is underrated. Essien plays a standard box to box role. Ronaldo would interchange positions with Milito who´s drifting out wide from time to time to allow sneijder to attack to the middle.

Picked Mourinho because i think the teams fits his direct approach of play especially the attack.

I suggest a traffic cone in a jersey instead of Busquets.

don't worry, I'll do what Busquets does, only for 1/10 what he demands

You mean stand just infront of the defense and side-way pass? Well, okay, you might be able to do that. (Although not as good as him, obviously) But would you be able to dive like an Olympic swimmer at every slight contact?
I highly doubt it.
