Bit of fun

Tue May 19, 2020 8:02 pm

Killing time till proper football returns, so I was trying to put together a Fergie-era XI based solely on foreign players (this excludes English,Scots, Welsh, N. Irish and to make it more of a challenge, Rep of Ireland players too - so no Irwin or Keane!)

Eventually I went for a 3-4-3 formation :shock:



Kanchelskis-----Ander Herrera----Veron-----Ronaldo

--------Cantona------Van Nistelrooy------Van Persie

Goals and creativity in that team! Had to play Ander just for the need for someone to do the dirty work. Andrei could slot in as an emergency RB if we were holding on in the last 5 minutes, but that wouldnt happen very often with this team!

How would you improve it? [Remember the rules: Fergie-era and non-UK or Ireland]

I'd replace Veron with Ji-Sung Park. Big game player but had two lungs and would die for the cause.

Other than that, it's a quality team.

I'd swap Herrera for Park and switch to 4-4-2 with RVP the one being omitted and Valencia at RB.
