      Classic XI vs Current XI
      Sep 29, 2016 11:47:57 am
      It’s quiet on here and I have a long day ahead of me... I thought I’d start a thread for some classic XI vs Current XI.

      Who would be in your classic world Xi and who would be in your current? And of course who would win if they played each other?

      My classic XI:

                           Kahn
      Cafu     Maldini     Beckenbauer        R.Carlos

                Zidane      Gerrard
      Maradona                   Ronaldinho
             
              (THE)Ronaldo        Pele

       
      Gerrard makes it in there on merit even though he is still playing. Trying to pick a front 4 took me a long time.

      My current world XI:

                               Neuer
            Ramos       Boateng          Alaba
                   Alonso           Kroos
      Messi                Muller                    Ronaldo
                  Suarez           Lewandowski


      I couldn’t really see past a win for my classic XI line up. Too much width for the current XI to deal with playing 3 at the back.

      Who would be in yours?

      Never really rated in the same way I rate Zidane and always felt Baggio was a better player than Figo.

      Stick Ronaldo (the real one) up front instead of Rossi and that's a cracking team mate. Would like to squeeze Zico in somewhere, but think he will have to sit on the bench.

      I know what you're saying but always was a fan of Rossi, tbh I did toy with the sacrilegious idea of sticking Lineker there!!

      I just went with players I loved watching in the world cup for the classic 11.
