If you were a manager and you had the choice of any player from any league, who would you pick?

State reasons why you picked the members of your squad if you want.

Here's mine:

GK - Asmir Begovic

DEF - Micah Richards, Vincent Kompany, Nemanja Vidic, Branislav Ivanovic

MID - Antonio Di Natale, Steven Gerrard, Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri

FOR - Wayne Rooney, Sergio Aguero

Subject to change... rolleyes.gif

I was finding it hard to pick a team with the amount of choice you have and I know there are better players than the ones i've selected. I chose players which I like at the moment and that I think would have a good team chemistary. Choose your team however you wish...

-----

Close this topic if there is one similar but I couldn't find it.

I don't understand exactly how that team has a much of a team chemistry at all. Having 2-3 players from the same team and the rest from 5,000 km away ain't really chemistry if you ask me.

I could submit my squad, but it will take some time to think over it, but anyway it will probably be evenly distributed across World Football.

Well, this is obviously a dream scenario. In that case, you can throw chemistry out the window.

My team is bias in the fact that i'm a massive premier league fan but this isn't meant to be taken that seriously.

You never really know if a fantasy team would have good team chemistary unless you pick 2 players from a team that you know work well together, I did this for Nasri/Fabregas/Aguero/Kompany/Vidic/Ivanovic/Gerrard/Rooney (including national and ex-clubs) but you dont know if they will work well with the other players. The only problem I see with my team is lack of strength in midfield, not alot of pace from the defense (apart from Richards) and I was very undecisive about my goalkeeper. I went with Begovic because he looks in real form at the moment. His performance last weekend was incredible. Anyway, like I said, I could have picked lots of others players but these are the ones I chose because I like their playing styles.

I keep seeing and hearing the Gotze's name mentioned, i know he is young and plays for BVB but is he worth a shot in my manager mode on fifa or what?

This is based only on players that I've seen live:

-----------------------------------Joe Hart------------------------------------

-Seamus Coleman----Gary Cahill----Alex Baptiste----Leighton Baines-

----------------Barry Bannan----------------David Vaughan---------------

--------------------------------Charlie Adam--------------------------------

----DJ Campbell-------------------------------------------Ola Toivonen---

--------------------------------Kevin Phillips--------------------------------

Obviously not the world's strongest line up, but I think this team would do fairly well in the prem at least.

One word: Yes!

I've been playing as Dortmund for about 4 or 5 seasons now - even on Fifa, the Bundesliga is a very open competition and a lot of fun to play. Gotze, however, is pretty poor on it. Of course, he's a fantastic player in real life, but Fifa hasn't really captured his brilliance, at least not on my game. In my 4 or 5 seasons in charge, he hasn't improved a notch on his 70 rating despite being played quite a bit in the startin XI. I've dropped him since. Bender has recently came into his own though - took a while but he's came good.

Anyway, to go on topic, I'll pick my starting XI from Newcastle players in my lifet time with a bog-standard 4-4-2 formation...

GK:
Shay Given
DEF:
Warren Barton, Philippe Albert, Jonathan Woodgate (fully fit in '03/'04ish, of course), Didier Domi
MID:
David Ginola, Peter Beardsley, Temuri Ketsbaia, Rob Lee
ATT:
Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand

Other contenders would be: Srnicek and Krul in goal, Dabizas, Robbie Elliott and Darren Peacock in defence, Dyer in midefield and Bellamy in attack.

Highlights of the team would easily be Shearer and Beardsley. Christ, I f*cking love Newcastle.

EDIT: Also, how could I forget Gary Speed!?
2nd EDIT: And Tiote!?

You're right, Götze is poor on FIFA 11, but he'll be fantastic in FIFA 12 wink.gif

Nice topic! I love these types of scenarios. Thought long and hard about getting Giorgio Chiellini in here, but I think my two central defenders would make a killer tandem. I tried to find room for Tevez, Sneijder, and Ashley Cole, but this squad is pretty nice as is.


---------------Buffon--------------

Maicon - Vidic - Pepe - Marcelo

Schweinsteiger - Essien - Pirlo---

-------------Messi -- Ozil ----------

---------------Ronaldo-------------



As long as we're putting together dream teams, how about all-time starting XI? Came down to Cafu or Thuram at RB and I hated leaving out Gerrard and Ballack, but here's mine..


------------------Buffon----------------

Thuram - Cannavaro - Nesta - Carlos

---Makelele-----Vieira-----Zidane------

-----------------Baggio-----------------

-----------Ronaldo---Henry-----------



And that's the Brazilian Ronaldo for the record. Can you tell I've only been a fan of the sport since 2006? lol.gif

CB - Diego Godin - 82

GK neure
LB ashley cole
CB vidic
CB puyol
RB alves
CM xavi
CM gerrard
CM iniesta
LWF messi
RWF c.ronaldo
CF ibrahimovic

The defence has both strength and creativity. The midfield is technically brilliant and with the presence of gerrard has bite. The forwards would just give ANY defence nightmares monocle.gif

-------Zlatan-Falcao--------

all time:

---------------Buffon---------------
Gentile-Scirea-Baresi-Zambrotta
-----------Davids-Pirlo-------------
------Nedved-Zidane-Baggio-----
-------------Del Piero--------------

So hard leaving Trezeguet and Conte out. I know that's wasn't really Baggio's position but it'll do it.

Pirlo's in there twice too with Buffon. They're the only two I'd say ok too.

MY all time XI. Got that?

Trezeguet was a beast. 17 goal average per season throughout his Juve career and that includes a few seasons with much lower goals per season. World Cup & Euro winner. 34 goals for France in 71 games.

Nedved, 2003 Ballon d'Or, nuff said.

Chiellini, certainly one of the few elite CBs by today's standards of crappy defenses.

Zambrotta was amazing in the early 00s, probably was one of the top few LBs in the world at that time. Alongside Roberto Carlos etc.

Del Piero...really? He was arguably the best player in the world in the late 90s before he did his ACL. He's pretty much won everything besides the Euros and scored 286 goals for Juve. One of the best strikers ever, probably top 10.

QUOTE
Maradona on Del Piero: Diego Maradona: Talking about the best 100 world footballers ever he says "Here he is, he is different from Zidane, he likes to play, he feels it in his soul; between he and the French (Zinedine Zidane), I stay with him.

Hear that? The best player ever thinks Del Piero is better than Zidane who he himself is one of the very top players of all time.

Don't underrate players like that sly.gif
