    Everywhere you turn people are talking about Covid 19 and to be honest; I feel that we can all do with a break... So your starting 11 and 7 Subs

    Although the players have to be from 2000 - 2020 the choice of players are when they were at their prime

    Great to see how closely we think people...
    Maybe by the end of this tread we should award positions by how many contributors name certain players.. Or would that be over egging it...??

    Alonso was one of the finest deep lying midfielders of this generation. Why are people putting him in the advanced midfield roles of their teams?

    Some very odd choices there, Dudek ahead of Reina, Robertson not in the squad. How on earth does Garcia or Litmanen get in ahead of Salah

    Also the backup to TAA would be Steve Finnan, and from a balanced point of view - some may argue that Finnan is a better choice first starter.

    The Reina/Dudek thing is debatable, Reina had a great record,

    Biggest decision is the front man - can be any of Owen, Fowler, and Torres - if I was to say who would fit into any of our systems from 2000 to 2020 - I would say it would be Torres.  Also not sure if I would necessarily have Salah on the right over Mane - I like the idea of having two aggressive fighter wingers on left/right (Suarez, and Mane). But then again Salah gets you more goals.  

    Again defence is a hard choice, we have Carra, and Sami to chose from along with VVD as a certain starter, but both Carra and Sami lack pace, and Gomez has been outstanding most of the time he has played with VVD.  

    Midfield trio for me is easy: Didi, SG, and Alonso, with subs being Henderson and Gini.

    Dudek and Reina are close, but I chose Dudek because for the CL 2005 Final... Litmanan for me was one of the must underated plays of his time, gaol wise salah impresses, skill wise, has nothing on Litmanen...
    Struggled with the RB position, Choice of TAA,S.Finnan and Jamie Carragher... But hey!! That was my choices how about yours :)

    Man, Gerrard in our current squad would have been incredible.

    Top end is hard.

    I'm gonna do 2. The first is my 'fun XI' - the one that is basically Brendan Rodgers channeled through the 2000-2020 period. These players had incredible highs but also shit moments. The other is serious, would win everything, but in 1-0s only.

    Fun - coaches: Rodgers, the ghosts of Shankly and Paisley

    Reina
    Trent Gomez Carragher Robertson
    (Pre-eye) Sissoko Henderson
    Mane Coutinho Sterling
    Torres

    Serious - coaches: Klopp/Rafa joint ticket

    Allison
    Finnan Hyypia van Dijk Riise
    Mascherano Alonso
    Salah Gerrard Firmino
    Suarez

    Swap the midfield with Masher, Alonso and Gerrard (though Fabinho when he's in top form would probably be better for breaking teams down).

    Swap Firmino with Suarez.

    Gold!

    Litmanen is the only one of our players I have never sworn at for making a dumb move on the pitch. The closest thing to a flawless football player since the King probably.
