Sound Off: Premiership Pt 2

Posted on 9 April 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

From Simon Renouf, Poole: My team of the season. Cudicini reliable and sane not a quality many keepers have. Higginbotham, Derby, I know but one of the few with a touch of class, King I never thought we'd miss Campbell so little, Riise awesome at the back and deadly going forward, Harte always there when you need him. Pires, Gooner I know but the best midfielder in the country bar none, Beckham grown in maturity over the last season could be our saviour in Japan, Danny Murphy probably the most under-rated player in the league, Roy Keane still got the lot after all these years real shame for Ireland if he misses the World Cup. Hasselbaink pure natural talent and Van Nistelrooy, deadly reliable.

Craig Shapiro, Benoni, South Africa: I would play a 4-4-2. Dudek (Liverpool); Harte (Leeds), Hyppia (Liverpool), King (Spurs), Riise (Liverpool); Pires (Arsenal-ouch), Beckham (Man Utd), Keane (Man Utd), Giggs (Man Utd); Henry (Arsenal-ouch), Van Nistelrooy (Man Utd). Subs: Cudicini (Chelsea), Terry (Chelsea), Solano (Newcastle), Anderton (Spurs), Owen (Liverpool).

Jason Soraff, Chigwell: Sami Hyppia has been a rock for Liverpool this season and gets my vote, closely followed by Pires (sorry, couldn't bring myself to put a Gooner top!).

So my Premiership XI would be:
Cudicini (Chelsea)
Hyppia (Liverpool)
Harte (Leeds)
Terry (Chelsea)
King (SPURS)
Giggs (Man Utd)
Pires (Ars*nal, ugh!)
Beckham (Man Utd)
Keane (Man Utd)
Van Nistelrooy (Man Utd)
Henry (Ars*nal)

Subs:
Dudek (Liverpool)
Ferdinand (Leeds)
Bellamy (Newcastle)
Smith (Leeds)
Hasselbaink (Chelsea)

Les Porter, Lisburn: My Premiership team would not, I'm afraid have any Spurs players in it. It would be a 4-4-2 and would I'm sorry to say have the only manager worthy of the job. Sir Alex Ferguson has for the last 10 years consistently sent out teams who are not only winners but on the whole entertainers.

So my team is: Cudicini; Hughes(Newcastle), Hypia, Henchoz, Silvestre; Beckham, Keane, Vieira, Pires; Van Nistleroy, Henry. Giggs, Ferdinand
(Leeds), Bridge, Fowler, Barthez as my five subs.

Gerard Eldridge, Ely: My team has no Gooners in the line up for obvious reasons, it goes something like this: Cudicini (Chelsea), Mills (Leeds), Riise(Liverpool), Ferdinand (Leeds), Hyppia (Liverpool), Giggs (Man.U), Keane (Man U), Parker(Charlton), Hasselbaink (Chelsea), Gudjohnson (Chelsea). Under normal circumstances the right back would be Carr (THFC).

Daniel Marshall, Stevenage: 4-4-2. 1.Cudicini 2.Terry 3.Harte 4.Hyypia 5.King 6.Gerrard 7.Beckham 8.Jenas 9.Gudjohnsen 10.van nistlerooy 11.Giggs.

David King, Welling: My team of the year are playing 4-3-3.
Given, he's kept Newcastle in 4th.
L King, pure class
R Ferdinand, what a buy
M Bridge, lets buy another Saint
S Hypia, good season
R Pires, unfortunatly a gunner
D Beckham, what a season
R Giggs, is he better than Becks?
M Owen, reasonable season
R Van Nistelrooy, a bargain
Hasselbaink, moans to much though!

Frankie Chester, Cambridge: I'd go for a 4-4-2: Given, Riise, Hyppia, Ferdinand, Silvestre; Beckham, Vieira, Ljungberg, Giggs; Van Nistelrooy, Henry. Obviously Steve Carr would start if he was fit and Simon Davies will be one of the best midfielders around in time. He would be on the bench with Ledley King, Hasselbaink, Dudek and Gerrard.
