All-Star Premiership Team: Who’s Your Pick?

Share

Chris over at COS has hit a home-run with his ‘Premiership Dream Team‘ post.

The basic premise is this – if you could sign one player from each Premiership club, who would it be?

I’ve put my selection below – let me know what you think (and what you pick) in the comments.

Arsenal – Theo Walcott
Aston Villa – Gareth Batty
Blackburn – Morten Gamst Pedersen
Bolton – Kevin Nolan
Charlton – Darren Bent
Chelsea – Petr Cech
Everton – Phil Neville
Fulham – Jimmy Bullard
Liverpool – Steven Gerrard
Manchester City – Micah Richards
Manchester Utd – Cristiano Ronaldo
Middlesbrough – Woodgate
Newcastle Utd – Scott Parker
Portsmouth – Kanu
Reading – Doyle
Sheffield Utd – Jagielka
Tottenham – Robbie Keane
Watford – King
West Ham – Ferdinand
Wigan – Baines

It sucks to have to pick a team out of this lot, but let’s try:

Starting 11: Petr Cech (Chelsea), Micah Richards (Manchester City), Anton Ferdinand (West Ham), Woodgate (Middlesbrough), Baines (Wigan), Ronaldo (Manchester United), Gerrard (Liverpool), Scott Parker (Newcastle), Theo Walcott (Arsenal), Robbie Keane (Tottenham), Kanu (Portsmouth).

Your picks?

  20. MU SHUD SIGN NAKAMURA TOO! GENIUS!

  21. cant believe how many people pick lennon?? I watch the guy week in week out and hes only just worth a starting spot at spurs for the moment and as for those guys that pick walcott and lennon they must be getting there football knowledge from the posters in shoot magazine!!

  22. you all seem clueless to me. do you not WATCH football matches?

    some ridiculous offerings.

    walcott?? he’s hasn’t even started 10 games has he?

    kevin nolan!? ballack!? MARVAN harewood? hahaha there are some serious jokers on this board.

    and who the hell put forward niko krancjar? as a pompey fan i’d love to see him in the side regularly and getting some form behind him, but he’s been in and out of the side, and very inconsistent. how anyone can place him as pompey’s player of the year above james, campbell, primus or even matty taylor (!?) is ridiculous.

    watch some football please.

    Edwin van der sar,Gary Neiville(RB),Rio Ferdinand(CB),John Terry(CB),Steve Finnan(LB),Cristiano Ronaldo,Steven Gerrard,Paul Scholes,Gamst Pedersen,Wayne Rooney,Dimitar Berbatov.

    This team will win all the competition!!!!!

  24. I agree with all of them except :
    Arsenal – Henry
    Bolton – Anelka
    Everton – Arteta
    Newcastle – Martins
    Portsmouth – James (Kanu is utterly rubbish!)
    West Ham – Tevez

    Henry Drogba

    Subs: Walcott, Rooney, Lampard, penant, carragher,Vidic,Lehmann,

    This is the BEST team the premiership could ever have!!! it would cost over 10 Billion Pounds!!
