    A bit of fun and games in these days holed up at home. A bit of a challenge this one.

    Pick your all-time favourite team XI
    Only one player allowed from each country (E.g. You can't pick 𝗯𝗼𝘁𝗵 say Scholes and Beckham (🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿;)
    The formation's completely up to you!

    I start the ball rolling with my spurs XI

    From 1994/5 (since I started supporting)

    Lloris (Fra)
    Carr (Rire)
    King (Eng)
    Vertonghen (Bel)
    Ziege (Ger)
    Son (Kor)
    Ardilles (Arg)
    Modric (Cro)
    Van der Vaart (Ned)
    Bale (Wal)
    Berbatov (Bul)

    Ok, cheating on Ardilles front but....

    Schmeichel (den)
    Valencia(ecu) Stam(ned) Vidic(ser) Irwin(ire)
    Ronaldo (por) Scholes (eng) Park(kor) Giggs(wal)
    Cantona(fra) Zlatan(swe)

    That was tough, I tried to keep it to players during my lifetime of watching football. Some huge omissions but what can you do.

    Lehmann (Ger)

    Toure (Iv C)
    Adams (Eng)
    Vermaelen (Bel)
    Tierney (Sco)

    Fabregas (Esp)
    Brady (Ire)
    Ljungberg (Swe)

    Henry (Fra)
    Bergkamp (NL)
    Kanu (Nig)

    Ok, so being a bit previous with Tierney but the alternative was Santos. Tried to keep to proper formation and positions. Really hard given a lot of my faves are either French or English.

    Daddy Schmeicel (den)

    Azpilucueta (spain)/ Staam (ned) / Vidic (serb) / evra (fra)

    Giggs (wales) / keane (irl) / souness (scot / ronaldo (portugal)
    Aguero (argie bargie) / Shearer (eng)

    Essentially a team of hard cunts, grafters and Ronaldo

    Yeah that's blatantly cheating, although Dougs accidentally cheated by making Freddie Scottish instead of a Swede.

    Lehmann (Ger)

    Lauren (Cam)
    Adams (Eng)
    Toure (IvC)
    Kolasinac (Bos)

    Ljungberg (Swe)
    Cazorla (Esp)
    Silva (Bra)

    Henry (Fra)
    Bergkamp (Hol)
    Sanchez (Chi)

    Kolasinac clearly the weak link there, but haven't seen enough of Tierney to put him ahead of him.

    Best(NI) Keane(ire) Giggs(wal)
    Rooney(eng)
    Yorke(tri) Ronaldo(por)

    Revised team. Still taking some leeway with a diamond, with Rooney behind the strikers, one of which is Ronaldo. And I wasn't alive to see Best play, but I'm from Belfast so I'm doing it!

    I started doing it properly then realised I couldn't be arsed. Then Timuri Ketsbaia's furious little snooker ball head entered my mind and I knew what had to be done.

    My United team would be

    1. Schmeichel (Denmark)
    2. Valencia (Ecuador)
    3. Evra (France)
    4. Vidic (Serbia)
    5. Stam (Netherlands)
    6. Keane (Ireland)
    7. Ronaldo (Portugal)
    8. Scholes (England)
    9. Ibrahimovic (Sweden)
    10. Law (Scotland)
    11. Giggs (Wales)

    Didnít like leaving out Hughes, Robson, Irwin, Van Nistelrooy and Cantona but no option

    Obviously I mean these players at their best, not the slightly past it versions - although Ibra was excellent in his time with us in a bad United team

    Even with the compromises thatís quite a formidable side
