Teams That Could Have Been

Recommended Posts

Post starting XIs of clubs that could have had a dynasty if not for short-sightedness, bad luck or other idiocy. 

Inter Meelano on the early 00s. Almost embarrassing the revolving door of talent they were/are.

Ronaldo - Vieri

Recoba

Pirlo - Seedorf

Di Baigio

Cordoba -Meterazzi - Cordoba - Zanetti 

Peruzzi

West Ham could of had an incredible team. 

In the early 00s, yeah. Joe Cole, Frank Lampard, Rio Ferdinand, Michael Carrick, that fascist Italian dude, Jermaine Defoe, and probably a few others I forgot. Did Glen Johnson play for West Ham?

Yeah, but he was utter shite, so no great loss. Di Canio's the Italian you're thinking of.

 

Valencia spring to mind with the likes of Mata, Silva, and Villa.

Liverpool 2009. Lost Arbeloa, Alonso, Mascherano, Torres in the space of a year to 18 months.

Wasn't Suarez signed to play with Torres too? One of my drivers who's a Red told me that a few months ago when discussing the 2009 team and it would have made you deadly up top.

Glad as an Evertonian that things didn't work out that year for you.

Keep that team together and stick Suarez in instead of Kuyt and we'd have been unstoppable.

I liked Kuyt in that team. It was the other side we didn't really have anyone. Riera started well and faded. Babel was never any good from the start.

Apparently so.

Eh. Kuyt was a good player and he'd put in a big shift but he clearly wasn't on the level of the rest of the team.

 Riera was the rug that brought the room together. We were so poor in the few games before he signed back in (I think) 08/09 and he gave us the width we desperately needed.

Sometimes I wonder if Celtic could have made any waves in a competition like the Europa league if we could have held onto all the players that went to the PL.

                                        Dembele-Griffiths

                                                  Rogic

                                        KiSY-Wanyama-Brown

                            Tierney-Sviatchenko-Van Dijk-Lustig

                                                     Forster

In any case it would have been cool to see. Its not really short-sightedness though, like Inter letting Pirlo go, its just the economic necessity of being in a smaller league next to the largest economically.

You could always rely on Kuyt for a big goal though. He was very underrated. If there was any weakness in that side it was down the left hand side. Aurelio at left back was always injured and like i said Riera started off promising but just faded away in the second half of the season. While typing this I've just remembered Yossi Benayoun who did ok on the left at times but could have certainly been upgraded on

Why?

The only questionable one in there is King, but happy to put Dier in. Just adding Modric and Bale to our team would be dreamy

Carvallo

Trauco - Rodriguez - Galliquio - Corzo

R. Torres - Christofer Gonzales

Flores - Guastavino - Polo

Ruidiaz

Probably the best 11 that we could have had in the last 5-6 years. That front line was what we see in the 2016 Apertura and for me, it was the best front line we've had in my lifetime. They were scoring constantly and smashing anyone in their way. A few U20 2011 Libertadores winners
