One last pick and it was tricker than I thought. Despite the Goalkeepers already selected I had 4 in mind that I would have been happy with any of them. The I have gone for has won the Premier League Golden Glove 4 times, Won 2 Premier League Titles, kept 127 clean sheets in 340 games and has twice been in the PFA team of the season. For a few years at his peak he was right up there with the top keepers in the league.

Makelele - McAllister

For my last pick, I'll finally fill in my right back position and the player I want in there is a man with plenty or PL experience. Between Chelsea, Portsmouth, Liverpool and Stoke, he's amassed over 350 appearances in the Premier League, most of them playing at a high level. While his strength is going forward and overlapping with the winger, he's still a capable defender in the right system and will link up with former teammate Dirk Kuyt on the right hand side once more, a partnership that's proven to be successful at Premier League level. He'll also be well covered by McGrath on the right side of defence, offering him a tiny bit more freedom to attack.

For my final pick, I'm selecting Glen Johnson.

For my last pick I'm going to pick a rock in the heart of the modern enough Arsenal defence, what he lacks in pace he made up in his impeccable reading of the game during his peak in the League, With the pace of Rio beside I think they will be perfect Foils. 3 time FA cup winner



Per Mertesacker

My final pick is a two time winner of the golden boot at two different clubs, Leeds and Chelsea.

127 goals and 58 assists overall in the league.

I think the key to getting the best from Ozil it to put good finishers in front of him and letting Ozil have the freedom to create for them. Well they don't come much more clinical than the two I have now.

Welcome to the club Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink

Really did not expect this legend to fall to my last pick, especially on this forum. A Newcastle United and Ireland great with over 450 premier league appearances and on the list of most clean sheets in the leagues history. One of the best keepers in the league in his prime, shown by his appearance in the PFA team of the season twice. A keeper with excellent reflexes and a real leader in the backline. With my last pick in the 2019 Boards Draft I select the keeper out of Donegal, Ireland





Shay Given

My next pick gives me a lot of pace, creativity and trickery to compliment my attack.

A consistent part and important performer of what was (imo) United's best team that made 3 Champions League finals, once Ronaldo left he really came out of his shadow and he had 2 consecutive seasons where he was absolutely superb for United.

He made the 2010-2011 PFA Team of the Year, and to be frank with 14 assists and 9 goals in 33 matches would have been a much more deserving winner of the Player of the Season award that season than Bale. United won the league that year, outscoring the rest of the league with 78 goals and he was a vital part of that attack.

Will play wide right, to give me that little more width and pace, but can also come inside and has a ferocious shot with both feet. Injuries caused him to lose form in his last couple of seasons, but at his peak he was one of the leagues most effective attacking players.

Rounding off my team, is Nani

And finishing my team with a Premier League winner.

Blackburn legend.
One of England's best goalkeepers for a decade.
Could've played for Liverpool, but that was allegedly scuppered by Roy Keane of all people!

Tim Flowers



Delighted with the team.
