I was really hoping they’d have some of our awful signings available in that list so I could make a joke lineup
Anywho, here’s my team.
Let’s be honest, to try name a best 11 is impossible. And strictly speaking, there’s two or three players I left out just because I was trying to strike a balance, and I wanted to try and avoid having a predictable selection. Figured it be more fun to try have a mix of the old, recent and current.
For example, although Overmars was very much on the left wing during his time here, I wanted to have both him and Pires on the wings, so Marc would adapt to the right side. I probably could’ve had Vieria, but Gilberto was so hugely underrated, a real team player and such calmness in central midfield. The thought of having Ozil and Bergkamp in the same team is just
The other tricky position to decide was right back. Toss up between Dixon and Lauren. Couldn’t help but think just how good the original back 4 was, so having him and Adams got the nod for me. Having Adams and Kos would’ve been a really lovely combination of each other strengths and qualties they bring in central defence. Very tempting to stick Campbell in there, but then I’d have two very similar central defenders.
Cole left back was an absolute no brainer, still the best left back I’ve seen in my years as a Gooner. Nigel Winterburn though was a fine LB in his time and that shouldn’t be forgotten.
The easist decisions of the lot really were up front and goalkeepers.
