Greatest Ever Saints XI
I know this topic has been discussed previously but I'm interested in seeing what people's opinions are of their greatest ever Saints XI. The rules are simple:
1.Name your all-time greatest Saints XI (past and present players and any formation can be used)
2. Any reasons why you have chosen certain players (this is optional)
I'll start with mine (bearing in mind I am only 20 so I won't know a lot of players)
I've gone for a simple 4-4-2 formation
Dodd Lundekvam Monkou Benali
Channon Le Tissier Ball Marsden
Over to you...
Golac Wright Holmes Dennis
Paine Channon Ron-Davies Le Tissier
Off the top of my head: (Shows my era I suppose!)
Mills Watson Nicholl Golac
Wallace (D) Williams Armstrong Le Tissier
Subs Niemi, Wright (M) , Peach, Holmes, Ball, Channon, Shearer

best team was 83/84
best in one of games , the side with KK, Ball and Channon
Anyone who puts up a best saints XI without Mark Wright is just deluded.

It's a no brainer.
Wayman instead of Shearer ....yeah right, Reeves was better.

I'm assuming you've come to that conclusion only because Neal Trotman and Callum Davenport were on loan?

My personal favourites.
Dodd Lundekvam Svensson Bridge
Marsden Kachloul Berkovic
Mine based on players I have actually seen play (seeing as im only 18 this could be quite depressing)
AMC: Le Tissier
PS: Who is the numtie who put Golac at Left Back - never played there as far as I am aware?
Im only 20 so may be a bit depressing!
Subs: Davis, Fonte, Baird,Viafara, Marsden, Walcott, Pahars
AML: Le Tissier
This thread is disrespectful to St Landrew's memory.
Mine would be assuming all players in their prime, not necessarily when playing for Saints
Golac Wright Nicholl Dennis
Case Armstrong Le Tissier Keegan
D Wallace Worthington
Based on players i've seen,
Not the most balanced of teams to be fair but my favourite players,
KK wasn't in that team!
