All you need to know.
Can play across the back 4...and then as 'keeper
200+ appearances for United
And the amazing honours list...
Very experienced Premiership goalkeeper. Well over 300 appearances to his name, the majority of which were with Tottenham. Not the best to have played, but nevertheless he was solid and made very few mistakes indeed. His experience and reliability would be an asset to my team, and ensure the defenders in front of him are confident in his abilities.
Played over 250 games for Chelsea, Birmingham and Wigan, mainly at right back.
Big, strong and solid and he made Latics history, when he became the first Wigan player
to play in a major international tournament by coming on for Holland against Romania in Euro 2008.
Was captain at Birmingham and Wigan. Still playing well and he has had a great season at Wigan.
Miguel picks Tore Andre Flo.
Will you make a post yourself Miguel. Its not my job.

Ed De Goey.
This guy has to go down as one of the best right-backs the premiership has ever seen. Became the most expensive defender in the Premiership when he left Wimbledon to sign for Newcastle United for £4 million.
Having made over 180 appearances for Wimbledon, the Crazy Gang Faithful were obviously devestated to see their key man go and Barton made a great career for himself at Newcastle, including 164 appearances. He was also part of the greatest ever Necastle side that finished 2nd in 1996 and 1997. During these seasons, he was recognised by many as the best right back in the Premiership. Finally, in terms of Premiership football, Barton spent 2 years at Derby County before trying his hand in the lower leagues.
He wasn't at his brilliant best when he was at Spurs, but he was still a good player and will do well in the centre of my midfield.
Robert William "Robbie" Savage (born 18 October 1974) is a professional footballer who plays as a midfielder. He currently plays for Derby County, and formerly played for the Welsh national team.
He gained notoriety for his playing style; in particular, his close-at-the-heels defending tends to wind up opponents, and he is frequently singled out by opposition fans.
Savage has two sons with his wife Sarah.
Johnsen played as a centre back or central midfielder, but was often sidelined because of his many injuries. He was purchased by Manchester United from Beşiktaş of Turkey in 1996. While at United, he helped the club to 4 league titles (1997, 1999, 2000, and 2001), and one FA Cup in 1999. He also contributed enormously to United's UEFA Champions League win in 1999, and covered the central midfield position in United's away win over Juventus in the semi-final in a game that is considered by many to be the best of his career. He also played the whole of the final in Barcelona, this time in defence, alongside Jaap Stam. He has the rare distinction of also winning four medals in four consecutive appearances with the club. He was on the pitch for the title clincher, FA Cup final, and Champions League final in 1999, and because of injury, the 2000 league title clincher against Tottenham Hotspur. While at United, he scored 8 goals in all competitions.

Easily the greatest goalkeeper of all time...
My next pick and to complete my team is silvinho
purely because i cba to think of my own. And he looks like a shoe.
He played pretty well on either flank in defence, and made 288 premier league appearances and won QPR's player of the year award in 93,94, and 95.
my last pick is keith gillespie
Keith Gillespie - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
talented creative wing but could play centre mid too .
if he hadnt liked the gee gees so much he would have had ten years at o/t ---indeed fergie tried to buy him back after selling him
Well, My last pick is a winger, who mainly played on the left, competing with Giggs for a place, in the early 90's, i think people have missed a real gem here, famous for his celebration - it's Lee Sharpe!:
In total he played 265 games for the Red Devils during eight years there, scoring 36 goals. from wiki.
Nice, a pacey talented left winger, who was very unlucky with viral meningitis, but this is about what he did play so that;s why he's a great pick to finish off my 11, especially at this stage
My pick is Jermain Defoe. A consistent goalscorer, despite being moved around a lot by some idiots at Tottenham.
Guess I'll fill my last spot in the back with N. Ireland's captain: Aaron Hughes
