    Your Best Football XI

    Well you just pick the best Football XI along with a few back-ups of the players you have seen since you have been watching the glorious game of football.

    For me it starts from the 98 World Cup:

    GK - Peter Schemeichel
    RB - Cafu
    LB - Roberto Carlos
    CB - Paulo Maldidni
    CB - Tony Adams
    RM - David Beckham
    LM - Ryan Giggs
    CM - Zinedine Zidane
    CM - Ronaldinho
    ST - Gabrielle Batistuta
    ST - Thierry Henry

    BENCH: Ginaluigi Buffon, Gialunca Zambrotta, Marcel Desailly, Pavel Nedved, Patrick Vieira, Fernando Heirro, Luis Figo, Ronaldo, Dennis Bergkamp.

    Yeah sorry, edited it now, was thinking of having three up front, but realised that team would get mullered by anyone. Deleted the wrong one.

    No, there will never be a Flacky in my side tbh, never in a million years, I'd rather put Steve Biggins in.

    Only just started his first game, hasn't he? Give him a chance.

    Without his 26 goals in promotion season, we wouldn't be where we are now.

    Really, maybe its because you been watching football for so long, but along with Henry, Adams and Vieira. Bergkamp is one of the best if not the best gunners player i've seen.

    I just couldn't bring myself to leave out Alan Smith. When we won the title in 89 & 91 it was his goals that were largely responsible. Boyhood hero.

    I'd have Bergkamp in a dream team of mine tbh, somewhat shocked he never even made the bench, but fair play to ya.

    Also disappointed you left out Bould and Winterburn, thought any Gunner would put the ol' back four in there!!
