    Following on from the one player from each nation thread, seen a few flying around asking for peoples favorite 25 man squad you'd pick from since YOU started following the Toon.

    Must have 3 goal keepers and 2 for each outfield position in what ever formation you want.

    So for me.....

    Since 1996:
    4-4-2
    GK's
    Pavel, Given, Dubravka - special mention for Harps but didn't make the cut
    RB:
    W. Barton, Raylor
    CB:
    Woodgate, Albert, Coloccinni, Lascelles
    LB:
    Enrique, Bernard
    RW:
    Ben Arfa, Solano
    CM:
    Cabaye, Tiote, Speed, Dyer
    LW:
    Robert, Gutierrez
    CF:
    Shearer, Ferdinand, Asprilla, Martins

    Manager:
    Sir Bobby Robson.

    ---------------------------------Sels-------------------
    Lazaar-----Marcelino--------Boumsing-----Babayaro
    Ireland------Maric-------------Fumaca--------Luque
    -------------------Guivarch---------Xisco----------------

    Manager: McClaren with Kinnear as assistant

    Don't need to list a full squad, that team would annihilate anyone by themselves

    Similar to Groot with a few caveats, for avoidance of doubt each position is in order of preference.

    GK: Dub, Given, Rob Elliot

    RB: Simpson, Perch

    CB: Woodgate, Albert, Colo, Lascelles (for the organisation)

    LB: Bernard, Enrique

    RM: Solano, fit and on form Dyer

    CM: Lee, Speed, Cabaye, Tiote

    LM: Robert, Ginola

    ST: Shearer, Ferdinand, Beardsley

    Actually that first 11 would kill it.

    Dub

    Simpson. Woodgate Albert Bernard

    Solano. Lee. Speed. Robert

    Shearer. Ferdinand

    Everyone pumps crosses and defenders, mostly, defend. Job done I should have been a manager.

    I would have to have Ginola in the team but yes that team would win the PL easy.
