    I know nothing about football (and some would say, care even less), but would be interested to see what people think of the following:
    1. What's your All-Time World XI?
    2. Which historical characters would you put in your All-Time History XI?
    Obviously King Solomon comes on as Referee and Ethelred the Unready as Linesman but who's your captain? Napoleon? King Arthur?
  2. not sure about all time world 11 but heres my top squad that i would pick from my yrs of supporting leeds united

    gk's - robinson, martyn, lukic

    df's - kelly, mills, harte, dorigo, radebe, woodgate, ferdinand, wetherall

    mf's - kewell, bowyer, strachan, mcallister, speed, dacourt, batty, milner

    st's - yeboah, viduka, hasselbaink, deane, wallace

    i only really remember players from about the 1st season of the premiership onwards and ive tried to mix this squad with players from many of those seasons

    I would have Audrey Hepburn as my captain. Cant think of anyone that would make the other 10 guys give much more effort.

    Historical figures?

    Anyone who's read Viz over the years may remember Billy the Fish when Fulchester United and their opponents signed Archbishop Ronald Runcie and Cardinal Basil Hume respectively. (Or the other way round, I'm not 100% sure) Hume nutted Runcie and got sent off!

    Fulchester United alson 'signed' 'Mick Hucknall out of Simply Red' (at they put it). Not so much a historical figure as a hysterical one, I guess.....

    My Dream Team (according to the song)

    Colin Bell - Colin Bell​

    Colin Bell - Colin Bell - Colin Bell - Colin Bell​

    Colin Bell - Colin Bell - Colin Bell - Colin Bell​

    Colin Bell​

    "Number one, is Colin Bell.

    Number two, is Colin Bell.

    Number three is Colin Bell.


  14. ok so i might have had either alfie haaland or gunner halle insted of danny mills, but whoelse has played at right back for leeds of any note?

    there was 1 or 2 rubbish 1s like alan maybury, but i wouldn't put him in my top leeds squad from the premiership seasons

    Alfie Inge Haaland is a geeza... It was such a shame that his career was cut short, he was only 29... Keane should never be allowed to play again for that lunge...

    Here's the Blue View...

    Bert Trautman, Nedum Onuoha, Mike Doyle, Stuart Pearce, Glyn Pardoe, Asa Hartford, Colin Bell, Georgi Kinkladze, Mike Summerbee, Francis Lee, Shaun Goater

    These are not necessarily the greatest City Players of all time, but they are all players who either inspire or some of them hold my fondest footballing memories.

    Id send my time machine forward two years, for the future Nedum Onuoha...

    The 11 from Escape to Victory, what team could be better Sly in nets, Caine as captain! Not to mention Pele, Ozzy Ardiles (sp?) and other footballers who blatently can't act!
