    VDS

    Vida......Blanc......Stam

    Hargreaves

    Veron.......Pogba
    Kanchelskis...................Ronaldo
    Cantona

    Ruud
    For the purposes of my team, Hargreaves is Canadian. By birth. By accent.

    It's a fantasy team so I don't really have to give a damn about whether they win or not. They'd score a ridiculous amount of goals though and I'd always go home happy.

    Strangely - both of them both had good debuts. Taibi at Anfield and Prunier against QPR. But both of them naturally weren't good enough and arrived at the club at the wrong time. So they were poor - and also had no help from lacklustre teammates.

    Taibi for the ball slipping through his legs. My first thought every time I hear of him.

    A never-nude? I thought he just liked cut-offs.
    Disappointing Foreign XI

    Taibi
    Darmian Blanc Prunier Fabio
    Schweinsteiger Veron Di Maria
    Cruyff
    Falcao Rossi
    Subs: Kleberson, Schneiderlin, Djemba x 2, Petrucci, Blomqvist

    Prioritised players that performed below their reputation/my expectations. I loved Veron and he produced some brilliant performances here, but overall it just didn't click for him relative to his abilities. Blanc was a brilliant player signed a few years too late, same with Schweinsteiger really, although there were some question marks about his attitude whereas I never heard a single negative sentiment about Blanc. Falcao was likeable too but his body seemed to have broken down completely and I'm surprised he's subsequently rebounded so well. Di Maria was just a putrid turd who never wanted to be here. Taibi and Darmian arrived with solid enough reputations and stereotypes dictate that I'll always be optimistic about Italian GKs and defenders but the less said regarding them the better. I'd seen Cruyff play a handful of times before he joined us and he looked a bit shit but surely we had a right to expect a bit more from a player named J. Cruyff? Prunier is included as I couldn't think of an alternative and because I was optimistic about him after watching highlights of his debut on Match of the Day, before his horror show in the next match and subsequent disappearance. Fabio and Rossi still sting...both very talented and likeable, but injuries and lack of first team opportunities did for them here. Fabio never really kicked on elsewhere, but Rossi turned out to be a terrific player in between his horrendous misfortune with injuries. There's others of varying degrees of talent in that youth category too, such as Petrucci and Possebon.

    That team would get less points than Derby did.
