    Was thinking how difficult it must be to be universally popular in today’s game, so tried to come up with 11 current players in an actual team...Cech and Kompany were the shoe ins with extra credit for Cech having played for two scum clubs!


    Manager: Sean Dyche

    Cech

    Baines
    Maguire
    Kompany
    Coleman

    Kanté
    Mata
    Milner

    Llallana
    Crouch
    Rashford

    I’d imagine Milner will be the most controversial but I have a lot of respect for him his longevity, playing in multiple positions when asked and for going about his career in a professional and modest way, think he’d be well thought of at every club he’s been at.

    Looking forward to every individual being rinsed but maybe hearing about a couple of others I hadn’t thought of! (Left spurs players out because of bias, I can’t believe everyone doesn’t love Harry Kane!)

    Milner was the one I thought, oh hang on. The reasons you give are more for respecting him than liking him. Can't disagree strongly with any of your choices. David Silva at City seems generally liked.

    P.S. Picking Mourinho's XI for the opposition might be more fun.

    Other than Crouch they are all clams.

    It would have to be all Spurs players.

    Another team might be the Commentators Orgasm XI. Salah is first on the teamsheet.

    Ha! Good idea. Though you could just go with the current Liverpool team ;)

    Non-Liverpool players: Hazard, Sterling (?), De Gea....and Pogba.

    How's Llallana in there after he tried to throttle one of our players in the reserve game.

    What about Aaron Lennon? It's hard to tell with Spurs players, but I think he is probably liked except by Leeds fans.

    I think liked by us and most outside the club would be indifferent.

    I was close to including him actually, thought it would be a hard one to get through!

    Good shout on Silva. I do like Milner he’s taken the boring James Milner parody very well too but was trying to think from a wider perspective than just my own too.

    Rashford seems like a knobhead to me - have I missed him being a decent human being?

    I think Aguero is pretty well liked too. He keeps scoring great goals, plays hard and generally fairly, and I can't recall him being prone to diving. He doesn't seem to get picked week in week out either at City so does even better in my eyes.

    Re the Commentators Orgasm 11 mentioned above surely the second name on the sheet after Salah is ...... 'Jack'?

    How can you leave Ozil out, I love him, reminds me of all those 30 something blokes I played with on cold wet Sunday mornings, only saw them sprint at final whistle to get changed.

    I agree about Oxlaide-Chamberlin and Silva and Cech was great to Ryan Mason when he got injured. I might add Zabaletta. I remember him waving the ref off when BAE was in danger of getting a card.

    Think Defoe is really well liked so would put him in, don't think that's just Spurs bias. His friendship with little Bradley was quite touching.
