      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

      I'll raise that team with an even more attack minded Man City (also including Didi)

      Man City

      James
      McManaman McMahon Hamann Riera
      Clough
      Anelka Walsh Stewart Bellamy
      Fowler

      Real Madrid (3-4-3...with a slight cheat)

      GK - Dudek

      RB - Benitez
      CB - Pelligrino
      LB - Arbeloa

      RW - Nunez
      CM - Alonso
      CM - Sahin
      LW - McManaman

      CF - Owen
      CF - Morientes
      CF - Anelka


      That's not a cheat.
      That's knowing your history.
      Nicely done.

      Current Best XI of former players still playing:

      Pepe Reina (AC Milan)

      Martin Kelly (Crystal Palace)
      Martin Skrtel (Fenerbahce)
      Mamadou Sakho (Crystal Palace)
      Jon Flanagan (Rangers)

      Lucas Leiva (Lazio)
      Emre Can (Juventus)
      Joe Allen (Stoke)

      Raheem Sterling (Man City)
      Luis Suarez (Barcelona)
      Phil Coutinho (Barcelona)

      Where would that team finish in the Premier League? Tasty front three but I reckon a battle for top six with that back four!

      From that XI Suarez is the only one that I would have back. I'm not a great fan of #10 role that Coutinho can do. I'd rather have a strong centre mid with an attacking midfielder. Coutinho is good winger but I'd rather have 3 goal scoring forwards. Coutinho will probably score 20+ each season in La Liga, but in PL he's a 10-15 goal forward. All our first choice forwards should be 20+ goals.

      What was he when he alternated with Mane then? He certainly wasn't a goal scoring forward when he was deployed in a front 3. He's attempted to be #10 and CM but he's got no defensive attributes for those roles. We don't need a  Coutinho we need a central midfielder that can pass forward well as well as track back. Gerrard, Ox and Milner are good examples. Keita should be doing that as well. I don't like having a player that is too close to the center if they can't win the ball back. If we have such a player then we should not have a front 3, #10 leaves too much defensive vulnerabilities if deployed with a front 3... It would essentially mean doing this with a front 2.

               Salah             Firmino
                           #10

      This is the missing link people complain about, but it's not better... do people think none of our current 3 can track back? If we really need #10 like Firmino could do that.
      I don't think many people would want to give up a striker for a number #10. Does adding another player close to the midfield really add that much when a striker only has to adjust his position? Shaqiri could be a number #10 as well if Klopp really wanted one.

      We need a player who sits deep and makes defensive contributions. Modric has done that brilliantly at Madrid. We need a Modric not a Coutinho. Basically a Henderson with playmaking abilities.

      Fair enough - was only teasing re the winger classification for Cou.

      Not many teams wouldn’t benefit from a Modric.

      Front 3 is about the only thing we'd take from that.
