Your greatest Villa team (from players who you have seen)
« on: January 31, 2021, 01:10:16 PM »
The only automatics for me would be Rimmer, McGrath and Grealish. 

My full backs would be Staunton and Gidman

Torn with centre back to play alongside McGrath (have the likes of Evans, Melberg and Laursen in mind)

Midfield Sid, Mortimer , Barry

Forwards Gray, Shaw and Grealish

Players missing out who really shouldnt from Graydon, Platt , Morley, Young and as much as I dislike him Yorke

I look  at it that Gray was better than Withe, argue all day but possibly Platt better than Little, Yorke a more natural player than most and Cowens/Barry complete pairing - Mortimer still remains underrated imo

I'm pleased to see so many selections including Steve Staunton, a wonderful all-purpose player who could fill a number of roles and so would allow much tactical flexibility.

He had a wonderful attitude, as well.

1-4-5-1

Bosnich
Staunton
Teale
McGrath
Barrett (nearly Gary Charles who was better crosser)
Grealish
Platt
Richardson
Taylor
Parker
Yorke

RB was really tough post Gary Charles and Fernando Nelson. Could have swapped Hourihane for Parker but Hourihane’s exploits were mainly in the championship as opposed to Parker in the Prem. Andy Townsend just loses out to Rico.

He was brilliant. Often played left midfield too under BFR and the early days of Brian Little. I always remember Keegan at Wembley saying we looked a better far more balanced side with him in the team.
