In goal, Iíve always argued that Rimmer is the best Iíve seen by miles, but I wonder if - when I finally actually get to see him play -  Martinez might overtake him. I think heís that good.

My sentimental selection might read (ie, I'll probably change my mind by tomorrow:

Spinky; Gidman, Slogger, McGrath, Staunton/Barry; Milner, Sid, Jack; Yorke, Withe, Benteke.

Bring 'em on!!

Colin Withers + 10 others
As a young lad watching a poor Villa team he stood out as a colossus.
Along with Harry Burrows two of my first heroes.

Big Colin (sorry, Tiny) was a real hero of mine as a youth too, BV.

                                     Barry

                         Cowans.      Platt

Walters.                        Yorke.            Grealish

Just as a variant, I selected the following team of players who came through our youth system and who I have seen play for the first XI.

Findlay; Gidman, Sleewenhoek, Cahill, Williams/Gibson/McDonald;

Davis, Barry, Hendrie;

Little, Shaw, Grealish.

Subs: two of the left-backs listed above, Turnbull, Walters, Daley, Luke Moore, Dazzler, Gabby and Oakes.

(Obviously, at least half of the staring team will change once the Ramseys and others get going...)

Little, Gray, Shaw, Withe, Grealish and Yorke have to be the outstanding attacking players I've seen in a Villa shirt in the last 45 years but I can't play them all in my team so on that basis I'm not doing one :'(
