Why pick best XI

Comments (1)

On any football sites it goes on, in all pubs, clubs or anydiscussions about football it goes on but to actual football picking a best eleven is not that important. So why is there always a thread about best elevens or when people comment they put thier best eleven in, I know its one of the reasons that Championship Manager and the like sell so much is cos we all know better but in the modern game I think you have to change you team for the opposition you face. For example our best eleven against Arsenal will probably not be the best eleven to play against Derby. More so Man utds best eleven against Villa at home will not be the best eleven to face Kiev away. Now dont get me wrong, every team has players that play in 90% of thier games, for us it would prob be Lescott, Arteta, Yobo, Cahill.

I believe this is the reason that bellend over the park has all the trouble, it's not that he rotates, he leaves out his best players at the wrong (right, ha ha) times. Whereas Ferguson will hardly ever leave out Fatarse and Ronaldo from same team and they are blessed with well more quality than that shower of shite across the park.

So in the future when we state our best elevens we should try to be more specific as to the reasons why it's our best eleven at that particular time or for that particular game.
