      In the Trenches with you
      Jun 17, 2017 09:48:33 pm
      Just for a bit of fun over the summer, what team of sportmen would you take in the Trenches with you. Lets say a team of eleven. A team of fighters, character and that never say die attitude.

      Here's mine in no particular order.

      Patrick Reed - golf
      Ian Botham - cricket
      Steven Gerrard
      Steve Waugh - cricket
      Ricky Ponting - cricket
      Ian Poulter -  golf
      Bill Beaumont - rugby union
      Yaya Toure 2014 edition
      Eric Cantona single handed made Fergie
      Mike Tyson
      Steve Redgrave

      Oooh good dilemma. Some great choices there Paul - especially Ponting and Waugh! Sportswomen as well perhaps? If so...

      The first two sportsmen who come into mind who represent fight and never say die (to me at least) are Dirk Kuyt and of course Andy Murray! Alongside these two great men I'd have...

      Alistair Brownlee (triathlete)
      Jonny Brownlee (triathlete)
      Steve Redgrave (rower - great shout Paul)
      Katherine Grainger (rower)
      Adam Gilchrist (cricket)
      David Coulthard (f1 - for the bantz)
      Mika Hakkinen (f1)
      Ellen MacArthur (sailor)
      Laura Trott (cycling)

      If I was to pick a Captain? Probably Redgrave.

      Connor Mcgregor X11, mouthy little b***ard but his mouth usually does the damage before he even steps in the ring, reminiscent of 70/80's LFC but our football did the talking.

      Seen this before and been thinking of a few names, but first down on the list would be Graeme Souness, an absolute warrior on the pitch, a hell of a leader and definitely someone you would want in the trenches.

      I'd have Froch and the Klitschkos from boxing. Marvin Hagler and Chris Eubank too if I could sew his grid up so I didn't have to listen to his voice.

      From football; Puyol, Dirk, Souness, Keane and Vieira.

      More or less the entire Gracie family as well from the martial arts world.

      Don't really follow any other sports.

      Actually will add two others I've thought of - both Rugby Union World Cup winning captains Martin Johnson and Francois Pienaar.
