Formation XI (4-4-2)



Explanation of Formation


The selective approach is direct ball. Gordon Banks is automatically stand as a first choice goalkeeper. Eddie Hapgood and Jimmy Armfield are fit to full-back position. Bobby Moore is to support sweeping the ball for Billy Wright who is assigned as a stopper. Edwards beat Bryan Robson as a starter for his significant greater abilities and qualified for limitation of opportunity criteria, he would perform as a box-to-box midfielder. The midfield would be centralized at Charlton who would contribute as an advanced playmaker role. Stanley Matthews would emphasize to create the game on the right side of the field with his expectable passing accuracy. Tom Finney would be technically dangerous the game as a left-winger and independently cut inside to support the front-line. Jimmy Greaves is stand in slight deeper position than Dixie Dean as a forward and both are always attempt to find the opportunity to shot on goal.

    Probably, the next players can be also included: Gary Neville, Ray Wilkins, Paul Ince, Nobby Stiles, Steve McManaman, Geoffrey Hurst, Robbie Fowler.

    Replies
    1. Refer to the standardization of players' selection in international legendary museum, players are required to achieve at least 4 - 5 international-class in domestic competition with any international success in case by case coonsideration.

      Gary Neville : He was consistency with a very good teamwork but in overall individual skill, he is not considered to be among legendary group.
      Mcmanaman : He achieved 3-4 great seasons in Liverpool but he was below average in Madrid.
      Fowler, he had too few great seasons with Liverpool, not consistency enough and his NT profile is also below average.
      Paul Ince : For me, he qualified in Domestic part but he was just average in international football in both European Club and National team.
      Nobbie Stile : He played well in the 1966 World Cup but he was a regular first team player for England just twice year in 1965 and 1966 and he was also injury too often.
      Ray Wilkins : He played in second division with Chelsea in twice seasons in his early 20 years old and was never selected in PFA team of the year. Anyway, according to media rating, he was quite successful in Italy in twice seasons. It is depend on how great season of him with Man Utd. However, He is not named in top 50 Man Utd players of all-time in any source.
      Goeff Hurst came closest : He had around four great scoring record seasons with 3 times West Ham players of the year. He scored 24 goals for England with 13 goals in Friendly matches. I think he spend too much time without scores in international matches. He has no score in consecutive three games in six times for England !

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Keegan in first XI is not as important as being rated in top ten English footballer in the list. I'd prefer Jimmy Greaves in the front line than Keegan as the formation already has Charlton as a creator, two prolific scorers will be more positive impact to the team.
      Keegan won twice Ballon'Dor in the era of decline in term of European superstars competitiveness and he largely acquired awards from his winning important trophies. Jimmy Greaves's individual performance was among the best striker in the World in his peak but he never won English league and European Cup so it is difficult for him to be voted very high.

      Delete
  7. I understand your point of view but in my opinion the best 11 would be with greaves striker and keegan second striker instead of dean.i Know that dean scored so many goals but in an era in which football was much more simple.it s so hard to judge players of pre war era when players were amateurs and football was played in few countries..in my opinion when there s a doubt between a player of pre war era and one of modern era its better prefer the second because it s much more difficult to emerge in modern era with so tough competition

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It is always agreeable that era of the second half 1920s is less competitive internationally than later eras but Dixie Dean performance in 1928 professional English league is independent from the given issue, achieving phenomenon and unsurpassable impact level (scored more than 60 percent of Everton goals) which no one could came close in the pre-war English league by his spectacular style of playing, is considered as one of the highest peak performer-strikers ever. I also see Keegan is not much successful with England to take more advantage to Dixie Dean.

    Sorry, but why Ray Wilson better than Ashley Cole, Kenny Sansom and Stuart Pearce? Is his Class really so high?
    I saw only some matches of WC-1966 with his participation; and I'm not sure that his is so... great.

    1. Ray Wilson played in second division with Hudderfield until his 30 years. According to the book "Best of Charles Buchan's Football Monthley", Ray Wilson was voted in top ten player of the English league season just once and finished at third place in his second season with Everton.

      He is highly regarded as the best LB to ever play for England but I have to agree he must be rated below all mentioned left-backs due to club's low profile.

  9. To me is missing Ray wilkins at least in photographs, had 86 matches for the national team and only ceased to be called when he was 30 years, strange lack.

    1. He won Chelsea Player of the year twice but the club was struggling in the second division at that times. I see he also was never selected in PFA team of the year.

    Nice squad among good selection! But I think Gary Neville should be in this squad. He has very strong domestic career with MU. Also, his greatness is recognized by many people and organization. For example, Barclays select him as "Greatest Premier League team ever".

    Replies
    1. He is in the borderline to qualify. I see the elder Neville is selected in PFA team of the year six times and the Premier League 20 seasons awards but when look into the level of his candidates, honesty it is not high competitive at all. Rare world-class right-back to have played in the league and even it was existed, they did not stay in England through their career and just lost Neville by longevity.

    There's a mistake in Eras Greatesh English: George Best is from Northern Ireland.

    I would sugest Needham as the best english player from Second Half 1890. Since that he also have played as left-half, he would be nowadays a left-back or a left-midfielder? I'm just curious. I also sugest Bloomer in First Half of 1900.

    In 1926, James Catton published a book about the 40 year of association football, and, for him, the english best XI ever at the time was: Ted Taylor (GK); Bob Crompton (RB); Herbert Burgess (LB); Jimmy Crabtree (RH); Billy Wedlock (CH); Ernest Needham (LH); Billy Bassett (OR); Steve Bloomer (IR); Tinsley Lindley (CF); John Goodall (IL); Fred Spiksley (OL).

  24. Team trophies or status of round is irrelevant if he did not perform great enough.
    World Soccer World XI by Eric Batty has been criticized as he selected many strange choices.
    I'm curious on his performance when he was nominated Ballon'Dor 2 times but receives only 5 votes in total and was one of the last places in the awards.
