    Seemed like an excellent choice of thread to follow on from a discussion in the match thread or wherever about crossing Lallana and Ox, and even Babel and Benayoun.

    So which two non-world beating footballers intertwined could rival a Messi or a Maradona?

    The only rules should be that the players belong to the same era and that they aren't incredible top 10 players as is...

    I wonder if crossing John Arne Riise with a player simply taller and faster would have made him in the list of top left backs at the time...

    Or crossing Markus Babbel with any player who wouldn't get injured...

    Having thought about it though I'd cross Crouch and Kuyt. The most workhorse striker ever - a knack for headers, poaching, link up play and everything else.

    What does our current team need? Sturrridge's left foot on Firmino?

    You might end up with a striker with Balotelli's footballing brain and Sturridge's injury record i.e me.

    Salah and Duncan Ferguson.
    Would love to see Big Dunc ripping down the seams with that kind of pace. Defenders would be terrified.
