This is mine :
Fernandino instead of Fabs ? Bollocks.
Kompany his last year was average at best - If we're taking a CB from the, it would be Laporte.
So Kompany => Laporte & as you said, Fernandinho => Fabinho.
It says the City team of 2017/18. Not once they reach pensionable age !
Fernandinho in 2017/18 easily over Fabs - and I love Fabs. Ditto Kompany 2017/18 over Laporte.
Ok re: Kompany ..
Not sure I agree wrt Fernandinho ... and I love Fabs too.
Is the right answer.. De Bruyne.. maybe.. for Ox. Maybe.
Ox over Gini, no chance
I did exactly that (except Gini for Alex), but couldn't post the screenshot so gave up
Fernandinho at his peak is as good as has ever played the position. It's hard to argue with that first team shown...
Can't really argue with this team. The 5 City players who made the starting 11 are all true legends in their own right and I would love to have any one of them play for us. Can't really make an argument against any of the 6 LFC players here either, it's all clear-cut. As a real-life team it would not be balanced (unless you replace Aguero with Firmino or D.Silva with Hendo or Wijnaldum), but these "best of" rarely are.
I don't think their team could overhaul a 25 point gap like that though
Top trumps exercises aside, I would've had Fernandinho before the emergence of Fabs (fuck, I'd still have him as a backup and to buddy up with the Brazil lads) and I'd have Aguero as I think he's undoubtedly the best #9 of the last decade. The rest of them, KDB included, might be hella-talented but they often come across as tossers. I've genuinely had more disdain for them, and their 'fans', than the other side of Manchester in recent years.
