The best football team in the world is....

Well, it depends on whether you're talking about the real or virtual world.

How about;

N. Gonzalez (Paraguay), F. Van Galen (Holland), Puyol (Spain), R. Ferdinand (England), Beckham (England), Gerrard (England), Cocu (Holland), Morientes (Spain), Robben (Holland), Kluivert (Holland), Henry (France).

3-5-2 formation.

I've been playing the excellent 'Let's Make a Soccer Team!' for PlayStation 2, and this is my current 'Kingshill Warriors' team.  I've played 40 seasons over 9 months, and have 13 English Premiership titles, 8 FA Cups (including 6 Premiership and FA Cup doubles), 1 Europa League, and 1 UEFA Champions League Final - lost 2-0 to AC Milan.

If we're talking about the real world, then the best team in the world is undoubtedly.... Barcelona. After purchasing David Villa from Valencia, they have I think 8 of the Spain team that won the 2010 World Cup Final, and it's strongly rumoured that they will acquire Cesc Fabregas (Arsenal) over the summer.

I remember the great Leeds United team of the 1960's, the great Liverpool team of the 1970's, and of course there's the great Manchester United team of the past decade or so. But these Barcelona guys seem better than all of those, and might well be the best team of all time. Alex Ferguson knows it, that's why he was smiling, when his team picked up the Losers' Medals at the 2011 Champions League Final.

I remember watching many truly great players over the years; Pele, Maradona, Cryuff, Giggs, Cantona, to name but a few. The lad Lionel Messi seems to be up there with the very best of them.

I'll keep you posted now and again on the progress of Kingshill Warriors - can they achieve the ultimate goal of winning the Champions League?

Latest results; Champions League last 16 - Kingshill Warriors 2-0 Liverpool, Liverpool 1-3 Kingshill Warriors. Kingshill Warriors win 5-1 on aggregate. Last 8 opponents - Lyon.

  1. I need the game 'Let's Make a Soccer Team!' How can I get it for my ps?

    NFL Tickets

  2. I stumbled across it in my local supermarket, of all places. It was made by Sega in the middle of the last decade, and was sponsored by Juventus, and a number of other Italian football clubs. I would suggest that you ask your local Playstation games shop - if they haven't got it, they will be able to order it for you.
