Anyways back on topic our strongest starting 11 is;

VDS

Evra
Rio/Evans
Vidic
Da Silva/Nevs

Fletch
Carrick/Park
Scholes/Anderson

Rooney
Berbs
Nani/Valencia

Obviously theyll be some changes depending on formation


I think what you mean is we don't have a stongest 11.

The fact you have 2 players for certain positions proves that, otherwise there would be just one player in each position. Kind of like a strongest 11 really.

whatever the strongest 11 maybe, gary neville should be no where near the starting 11.. if rafael is'nt going to be given a proper chance then fergie should have signed an establised right back in the summer.. neville was woeful today constantly out of position, lacking pace, nani spent most of the game in the right back position covering neville.. he's 35 he is not going to get any better, he should never have been given a new contract in the summer, it just shows how soft fergie has got.. in years gone by bruce, pallister, parker etc were all shown the door when they were on the wane

Think Tony would be the business at right back behind Nani in our best current 11.

There hasn't been a strongest 11 for a few years now. Some see that as good, some bad. I'd go for good. Strong squad, good back ups, tactically flexible.

Last time we had a settled first XI was the last time we played regular and consistently great football in the league 06/07.

07/08 season we saw a lot of rotation and looked a bit mechanical at times, only really had Tevez and Rooney all season so you wonder where we'd been without Ronaldo and Rio/Vida.

No surprise we look a lot more suspect these days without Rio there and Ronaldo who was capable of finding a goal to bail us out when we most needed it.

best 11 for me is a team to play in a final if it were in a couple of days. For you it's every week and sometime further away in the future apparently. I'm not picking for the far future I'm picking for the imaginary cup final in total isolation whereas you are completely in fantasy land.

I'd have Tony before some kid. Tony's not going to let you down. He'll play anywhere. He won't be laughing and joking about it though. No, he'll be deadly serious. Deadly!
