    Default Which three saints players...

    Stolen from somewhere else.

    I expect many of you remember this 2002 Nike ad. The two questions are:

    Bearing in mind that quick, tight, physical format

    Which three current players would you select for Saints?

    and

    Which three all time Saints players?

    For all-time, try to stick to how they were at their peak while playing for Saints, so, for example, Bale was skillful, but still pretty lightweight and far from the player he became. That's the Bale you would be selecting.

    Current - Jenny, Reddy, JWP

    All time - Wallace trio. Maybe two + Tiss

    Current: You need players willing to get stuck in (Romeu), with non-stop effort (Ward-Prowse), and who are able to put the ball in the net (Ings).

    All time: So many to choose from! Svensson, Paine, Lambert

    Definitely Redmond, JWP for workrate is pretty good and Ings is quite physical and would find the goal.

    All time, Armstrong, Keegan, VvD

    Today JWP - Djenepo - Boufal (because there isnít too much pitch for him to think about)

    In their prime - Iím going to cheat and steal Sir Bobby Robsonís comment for my team
    ďif you could make the ultimate playerĒ
    You would have the strength of Shearer
    The speed of Wallace
    The skill of Le Tissier

    Oh to have had that combination (all in their prime) on the pitch for Saints in recent years.

    Three great attacking players, maybe not enough tough tackling (or constant workrate in the case of Le Tissier. Shearer wasn't quite the finished product in his saints prime, but would probably still be good in something like this.

    Carlton Palmer, Ali Dia & Razor Ruddock.

    Ruddock would be laid down across the goal and we'd be unbeatable.
