    The most balanced team imo.
    Loved Finnan and he was better defensively than Trent is but he ultimately misses out.
    Henderson or Wijnaldum are in with a shout for Fabinho's spot but we need a real DM in there.
    Hamann was great, but in 2005 he was close to retirement. A peak Hamann would challenge Fabinho, but it's still not that close.
    No competition upfront from the 2005 team.

    Pretty much although it is a very what I'd call a "stiff" midfield.

    Finnan was fantastic for us and Riise 1 of my all time favourite ex-players but Robbo flying up and down that wing gives us far more of a threat and a better balance.

    No idea was incredble...my heart stopped for a full minute when I saw the likes of Winks Sissoko and Rose on that team sheet.

    Champions League Winners... the lot of them.

    Unlike the current Man City, Man Utd and Spurs teams.

    Rafa could do with some winners like these at Everton.

    Define “you guys”, “love him” and who else would you have in central midfield from the selection.

    The only 2 XI Lallana gets into is the "Sexy fuckers" XI and the "Fuck sakes Gaff, I'm injured again" XI

    Other than Gerrard and Hyypia, no one else gets in the 2019 team for me.

    If we are talking about the team that lost the CL final in 2007 then it's Mascherano and Gerrard.

    I will have Xabi, Dirk Kuyt and Carra in the squad but they will not start.

    Hyppia was one of my favourite players but with VDV we have someone on the left who is dominant in the air so Hyypia seems redundant. I'd keep Matip because he's a very good all-rounder and gives you an option on the ball.

    My first instinct was to put both Gerrard and Alonso in. Gerrard there is no question about. Alonso, however, as much as I reeeeeeeeeally want to put him in, I wonder if Fabinho covers off just enough of what Alonso offers that having a more mobile "water-carrier" like Gini gives the midfield more balance.

    You know we will probably do a kind of Hamann-Alonso combo in midfield this season with Fabs and Thiago. Just like we ended last season, so I think it'll work out.
    Henderson will get to play further forward maybe.

    Things might be different over a whole season but, if I were picking the team for a one-off game against top opposition, Finnan at his best would get in ahead of Trent. There's creativity in plenty elsewhere in the team, besides which Finnan was no slouch going forward himself. Ask me again in a few years' time and hopefully I'll be able to take a different view by then.
