Apparently this was on Toffee TV earlier (Josh told me); you have to pick the best XI you've ever "seen" but only allowed one player per country. Tough this.

For me (defence hardest)...3-5-1-1

Howard (USA)

Ratcliffe (Wales) Captain

Yobo (Nigeria)

Heitinga (Netherlands)

Gravesen (Denmark)

Gana (Senegal)

Pienaar (SA)

Reid (England)

Kancheslkis (Russia)

Cahill (Oz)

Sharp (Scotland)

 

Fellaini (Belgium), Limpar (Sweden), Saha (France), Sheedy (ROI), Myre (Norway), Radzinski (Canada) and Pistone (Italy) on the bench.

No place with Reidy in the team, only one Englishman allowed.

Arteta takes Reid out, but it is a poser like you said we had so many great English players play for us under Kendall you would want to pick them all.

For me he takes Gravesen out (puts him on the bench). Agree with the rest though.

Colemam Yobo Hertinga Digne 

Fellaini Arteta Pienaar

Kancheslki Lineker Cahill 

Not to happy with the defence but when you have the best keeper in the world in goal they should be safe enough.

I’m with Pete. McCarthy is 100% Scottish, just plays for Ireland. 
 

Just like Kevin Kilbane and Jon Walters are both English.

I’d have Yak every time but otherwise I’d agree with that. Or Drop Distin for Saha

One 451....Tough one that.  Right back was the most difficult... it would be Stevens but England spot was rooneys. So yobo emergency RB. Probably wouldn't need him with that team

Not acceptable Yobo never played RB I know why you done that the brilliant Sheedy I wanted Stephen in midfield field but couldn’t sacrifice Lineker.

In a couple of weeks we should pick all the players with the most votes in their relevant positions to see what the team would like, if some nationality’s are replicated we need to vote on who we keep and who we replace.

He did, I'm sure of it. Remember, Moyes was his manager and was always willing to do things like that.

I think yobo would have been ok at right back. Amazing athlete and when his head was on it a very good defender. Right back could have been ideal for him.  Just checked.... he did play right back under moyes. 

Yeah... had to get sheedy in there.  My second English spot was Baines, Welsh spot Ratcliffe.

Fair enough I concede mate, I cocked my defence up to be fair although I would gladly have Yobo and Hertinga here now though. 
Then people were coming out with Bilic, Gough and Weir who I thought was huge for us in difficult times and I forgot them, without doubt we’ve had some triffic players play for us as Harry would say.

Browning was born in Liverpool, but I’m sure you can have him as Chinese. Even though he played for England under 17, 19 and 21. 
His grandad is Chinese apparently, so go on. 😂

I didn’t mind Hitzlsperger! The bloke had an absolute hammer of a shot.

Swap him for Segundo Castillo for my team. We have had some absolute donkeys.

yeah that was kinda my point.  i figured i haven't been following long enough to find the brett angels and the like, but when i went through year by year i realized the amount of shite players we've had.  lord, we have had a lot.  i could have had a whole team of shite strikers, straq, leandro rodriguez, kone, etc.  makes you grateful for some of the players we have now!

Tried to make an XI for players that played for a different country than their birthplace but couldn't find a keeper and had to use a couple of midfielders for the final spots in defence and in goal.
