Players who came through the academy of the club and signed professional forms with them, only!
So one club men?
United Xi from Fergie/big Ron years
14. Pearson (S)
No that would be too hard
Players who made their breakthrough after coming through the ranks not bought in
Valdes - Puyol, Bartra, Pique, Alba - Busquest, Cesc/Thiago, Xavi - Pedro, Messi, Iniesta
That's just one/two generation(s). Incredible.
Can't think of a proper GK, LB or ST.
Ferrer-Pique-Puyol-Jordi Alba (Yes, he was at La Masia)
Crazy that the majority of them were world class and all played together (bar Ferrer).
West Ham United
2. Lampard (sr)
8. Lampard (jr)
Subs: Ince, Cole, Cottee, Martin, Defoe
Had Pogba signed pro forms at united before buggering off?

Beckham Scholes Edwards Best
Foulkes in goal? And no big Dunc
Subs: Richards, Bowyer, Wagstaffe, White, Clements, Towers, Ranson
Lots of defenders...very few attackers
What about Ajax?
Suurbier Aldeweireld De Boer Krol
Bergkamp Van Basten
Subs from Keizer, Kluivert, De Boer, Swart, Sneijder, Eriksen, Vertonghen.
Jack Crompton didn't play in our juniors...
Player Manager: Bill Nicholson
Not quite getting the premise fella
No Ronny DeBoer?
Totally forgot Edwards! Will edit now.
Criminally under-rated, but to be fair he probably had to make way for Bergkamp here.
Other notables Tony Marchi, Jimmy Neighbour, John Pratt, Vinny Smaways and Keith Weller...
Never rated him!
Carvajal Sanchís De Felipe Camacho
Not even the bench though? Super player
Oh yeah definitely and although he took up Bergkamp's role from recollection, if you're wanting anyone for the right side of the midfield or attack he'd be the man for it.
GK: Ian Walker
RB: Stephen Carr
CB: Ledley King
CB: Sol Campbell (JUDAS)
LB: Chris Hughton
RM: John Pratt
CM: Steve Perryman
CM: Glenn Hoddle
LM: Micky Hazard

I am sure there is someone better than Jackson but I cant think of any lol.
Pretty sure Martin Chivers started at Southampton...
I'm pretty sure your right lol back to the drawing board, not easy this. FIXED.
This is a great team, but do Johnny Rep and Arie Haan not qualify......
Eriksen shouldn't really as he was an Odense Boldklub player at 18, although a Middelfart lad as a youngster
Could John Pratt or Jimmy Neighbour not play RM? Or even Keith Weller...pretty sure he played #7 for Leicester City.
I will go with Pratt as I never heard of Neighbour if I am being totally honest.
Great shouts, forgot all about Barmby, my favorite player as a kid due to a certain diving header. I don't even remember who it was against.
Irwin-Ferdinand- vidic- evra
Scholes - edwards
Best - charlton - Giggs
