    Default Beat the last Eleven

    Ruminating on the "First names" meme in the Reira thread, I devised this.

    DEM RULEZ:

    I post a team of Forest players.
    You post a team of Forest players that could beat them and a line about why next to each name.
    Then the next person posts a team that could take on yours.
    You can't use anyone from the teams in the two posts above you. So, the third guy can't use any of mine, nor any of the second guy's. But the fourth guy can.
    Obviously any given team may generate a number of responses. You are obliged to find the team that the post you are responding to was responding to. Bad sportsmanship will mean you support Derby. Or Liverpool. Forever.
    YOU MAY ONLY POST IN THIS THREAD IN RESPONSE TO ANOTHER POST. AND YOU MUST POST A TEAM.
    After you've posted a team, you can say what you like.


    This is going to die on its arse. In any case, an eleven of my favourite Forest players, in order to get a lot of the obvious ones out of circulation a bit:

    Crossley

    Lyttle Walker Chettle Pearce
    Phillips
    Stone Woan
    Cohen
    Clough Collymore

    (fucking board software. Phillips is DM, Cohen AM, Stone and Woan out wide where they belong.)


    so... who's your eleven to beat mine, and in each case, why?

    Neither of you have read the rules.

    I fucking despair of this place sometimes. And I can't even post a team of my own to beat my other team, because then I might as well have this conversation in my head.

    OK I'm game

    Gk Shilts- England's greatest ever gk
    rb Charles struggling to think of another rb lyttle would have been my choice
    Lb cohen- a more skill full player than psycho even out of position with a different but equal lion like quality
    Cb- cooper better than chets but not by much
    Cb Larry lloyd- scare the fook out of everyone
    Rw- Franz Carr pace to burn
    Lw- Andy Reid
    Cm- Neil Webb oozed quality
    Cm Archie gemmill- awesomeness personified
    St hooijdonk- the best striker we ever owned
    St Roy pure class

    I pit my team of NOTTS FOREST XI against your XI.

    I believe Cohen will not play ninety minutes in this friendly as it isn't worth the risk and some of Geoff Thomas' tackles will be a but much. Ian Woan will lose interest.

    On the bench I have Colin Foster, Kelvin Wilson,Brendan Maloney, Shaun Derry, Nathan Tyson and Jason Lee. Options.

    Sorry just noticed I've duplicated Cohen, swap him for Julian bennett- not the greatest player but a real heart and a passion for the club

    Lloyd
    Clarke
    Mcgovern holding
    Webb Francis Roy
    Chapman Earnshaw

    Fluid three behind the front two, Francis and Roy pulling wide when necessary. Big man little man combo up front. Eat my goal.

    Roche

    Eaden Gary Taylor Butterworth Oyen

    Michael Stewart (holding DM)

    Kevin James, Sonner, Gary Holt


    Silenzi Dadi

    Guaranteed to be able to walk the ball into the net as the opposition would be pissing themselves at how any of these made a living playing football.

    Oxford away, FA Cup replay, 3-0 win. I saw Silenzi score!

    Much easier for us oldies to put together the XI to beat all others:

    GK: Peter Grummitt
    RB: Joe Wilson; LB Peter Hindley

    Right Wing Back Terry Hennessey (Capt) Centre Half: Bob McKinlay Left Half Back Jeff Whitefoot

    Right Wing: Chris Crowe Inside Right: Colin Addison Centre Forward: Joe Baker Inside Left: Geoff Vowden Left Wing: Ian Storey-Moore

    Reserve: Jim Baxter

    Play 2-3-5... win everything in site

    As strange as it may seem, I think that team actually does better going forwards if it's a 4-5-1 rather than 4-3-3.
    But I don't think anyone has legitimately bettered it in the posts below it!

    He cheated though. Tropix used players that had already been used.

    Same thing here in my humble opinion (although I'm saying it tentatively) - 3-2-2-3 better than 2-3-5 (but I think that's what you meant anyway, cos the centre-half had become a centre-back I think - McKinlay was a classier Steve Bould rather then an Ernst Ocwirk I think).

    I'll try to rival this with more modern players then, hmmmm....

    Geoff Vowden was the one name there I didn't recognise though, and haven't seen in any form of footage I don't think. Would be good to read any comments about him.

    Thanks carlosmerino though for reminding me that I should probably have put Francis as the right winger in that team I just named as O'Neill was more of a midfielder (so I was doing the same thing I'd suggested others had done, but needed to to fit the formation..and maybe O'Neill would relish being let off the leash in a proper right side attacking role...who knows - Duncan McKenzie and Terry Curran other options maybe?).

    Again, not to contradict myself lol (I'd still go 4-5-1 for Tropix's team but that's a bit picky and anyway it's a bloomin good team however much the wingers push on)....
    ....but Robbo would improve that team if he lines up as the left winger (Roy would be a better option at inside forward I think Captain, a la Billy Gray?). The wingers, like Storey-Moore and Hinton, didn't stay high up the pitch for 90 minutes anyway I think?

    Er, thanks.

    First sub in football league history to score a hat-trick I think too?
