So, players who were once pretty good and who have played for us either at the tail end of their careers or at any rate, past their prime...

What's the best side we can put out?

Improvements to the below squad welcomed.

Neville Southall

Chris Ramsey
Frank Lampard
Christian Dailly
Michael Turner

Tony Currie (controversial)
Mike Marsh (also controversial)
Ronnie Whelan
Martin Allen

Trevor Whymark
Dougie Freedman

Subs
Mark Prudhoe
Marc Antoine Fortune
Kevin O' Callaghan
Michael Ricketts
Shaun Goater


That's a bloody good midfield when they were in their prime, and the strikers aren't bad either! Plus Southall was one of the best in the world when he was on the top of his game.

In his prime he was... didn't he play for England once?

But he wasn't for us, granted!
I believe the club sacked him for punching another player , a typical Dick Bate signing , crap .:smile:

He didn't play for England, indeed he only played very briefly in the top flight.

Is the criteria here that they were very good at one point, but never any good for us?

Yes. It doesn't matter how they played for us, it's how they played before us that's important.

Ramsey goes then. Funny, I thought he had once been a pretty decent player so my mistake.

Must admit, I had a similar impression.

I must also admit that I'm struggling here - Ian Selley could be a shout I suppose? Did nothing for us, but did start in a ECWC Final winning Arsenal team.

That said, right now on an Arsenal forum, they're probably discussing a 'worst Arsenal XI to have started a major final'...

Who would this team's manager be? Anyone who had a notably good CV before taking over the reins at SUFC and having a 'mare?
