So have people seen the challenge going around?


Basically; No two players who have represented the same club or country and they must have played in your lifetime...

Made me wonder what the best Liverpool 11 that people could put together might be. So who wants to give it a go? Your lifetime, no more than 2 from each nation. Go....

Already being discussed in the random football debate thread...


This is proper tough!

I'd go with..

Oblak

Azpilicueta - Kompany - Maldini - Lahm

Gerrard - Dunga - Keane

Bergkamp - Messi - Zidane​

Grobbelaar (Zim)

TAA (Eng) Klavan (Est) Hansen (Sco) Risse (Nor)

Souness (Sco)
Gerrard (Eng) Alonso (Spn)

C. Johnston (Aus) Kewell (Aus)

Rush (Wales)
Subs: Allisson (Brazil): Virgil (Holland): Aurelio (Brazil): Mascherano (Arg): Sahin (Turkey): Maxi (Arg): Torres (Spn

Bloody hell that was tough. Automatically had several players in mind but needed to drop them to fit others with the nationality restriction. Seems a travesty to leave out King Kenny, but ultimately needed that extra spot for Scotland to make sure I had Hansen and Souness

You've still got three England players in your first XI

Plus four more on your bench.

Shankly.

Alexander-Arnold, Hyypia, Van Dijk, Robertson
Gerrard, Mascherano, Souness
Salah, Rush, Suarez

That is my attempt, think a bit too much recency bias but so shoot me!

Edit: Just realised I had no Brazilians so could use Alisson, sorry Bruce.

Total cheat team in terms of formation, but with the pace of Virgil and Lawro you only need 2 at the back with Alison sweeping behind.

Alisson
Virgil Lawrenson
Souness, Gerrard, Xabi
Suarez Kenny
Mo Rush Barnes

This is something I've seen on RAWK when I lurked there about 7 years ago.. Would anyone be up for doing a draft like they do?

Can start with something easy, like a world 11. Basically you get 12-16 forum members , randomise the order of picks and then agree a "draft" window and #1 in the list picks and you go down like a snake, so whoever is last picks then picks again and it goes back up. Rules can be organised in a thread, but you get to 11 players, post your team and each is then drawn against another and you vote on who is the best in a mini-tournie until you get a final and the best voted one in the final is the winner.

I'd say something like you can only have 1 player from each country and team to start (same as Carraghers game but ignore the "lifetime" bit to open up the pool).

So Maldini = Italian and AC Milan so anyone else in your team cannot have played for either.

If we can get 10+ interested I can organise and speak to the mods to get a sub-forum made etc.

Pre-virus Babbel is a good and seemingly poorly remembered option
He was an immense defender, taken before his prime sadly (and I couldn't have Trent.. sorry but Gerrard/Barnes top him in my lifetime for now..)

We accept as honorary Welsh any English person who speak English with a difficult to understand accent. Except Brummies.
I might be getting my geographic accents mixed up, but I never thought the Cumbria accent was too bad to understand.

At least not as hard to understand as Cornish and Geordie
