      Reds at other Clubs - best XI's
      Oct 11, 2014 10:09:17 pm
      After the side-discussion with Villa players in the "who would you support" thread, I just thought it'd be interesting to see the best XI's from various teams made up solely of Liverpool players.

      Pick a team and pick their best XI of ex/current Reds. (preferably off the top of your head as well)

      My first pick;
      Blackburn

      Friedel
      Babbel Hencoz Matteo Bjornebye
      Thompson McAteer Murphy Warnock
      Bellamy Fowler

      I'll go with an attack minded Newcastle...

      Mike Hooper - GK
      Alan Kennedy - LB
      Barry Venison - RB
      Didi Hamann - CH
      Terry McDermott - RH
      Peter Beardsley - IR
      John Barnes - IL
      Craig Bellamy - LH
      Michael Owen - LW
      Kevin Keegan - RW
      Ian Rush - CF

      Might concede a few but f**k would they score.  >:D

      In fairness to Jack Balmer he was an amateur when he signed for Everton, he signed amateur forms for Liverpool the same year 1935.This shows he had a brainstorm signing for Everton and soon realised his mistake. ,Liverpool was the only club he played for as a professional, he did play for other clubs as a wartime guest as did most players.I still recall the shop Jack Balmer had in West Derby Village.

                                   Dudek
                                             
          Arbeloa       San JosĂ©    Mascherano        Insua

                                McManaman

                         Owen             Suarez


      Hopelessly attack minded, but off the top of my head can't think of enough defenders to play Masch out of defense.

      Nobody Racer can't we manage a 2nd eleven?  I'm not so well up on where all our ex players left for or ended up at but there's already 3 or 4 been suggested and a couple I've remembered, Tosh and Lil Luis both played in La Liga after us.

      Oops, you've already got Garcia.

      Pick a team and pick their best XI of ex/current Reds.

      Going off the OP criteria above there's Coutinho, Reina, Manquillo, Moreno, Enrique, Suso, Alberto, Aspas, Ilori, Torres, Riera, Morrientes just off the top of my head.  I'm sure you or others could add a few more.

      Ah. I hadn't put current players or Reina in.
      Had been thinking players that went to Spain after Liverpool.
      Yeah, could easily make 2 or 3 teams then.

      Could add Reina, Alberto, Mascherano, Suarez to a Barcelona 11.
      Could add Dudek, Arbeloa, Alonso, McManaman, Owen, Morientes. Toshack as manager.
      Wonder how many else?

      Edited my post.
      5 Real Madrid players and Toshack as manager.
      There must be more.

      Well, we have a Barca/Madrid 11.
