Carlton Palmer #One2Eleven (4-3-3 Formation)

Carlton Palmer was a guest on Sky Sports programme The Fantasy Football Club in September 2013 where he picked the eleven best players he had ever played with in their #One2Eleven section of the show.

Carlton Palmer One2Eleven

GK – David Seaman – made one of the best saves I’ve ever seen in the FA Cup semi final against Sheffield United and for this reason I would put him ahead of Chris Woods and Nigel Martyn.

RB – Roland Nilsson – forget his ability, his first game back after a cruciate injury was against Manchester United in the 1991 League Cup Final and marked Ryan Giggs out of the game.

CB – Des Walkerone of the best centre backs in the world at the time.

CB – Tony Adams – a leader who was a proper centre half.

LB – Stuart Pearce – Psycho, frightens himself. When Graham Taylor came in he said, right Stuart you can take the warm ups. He just said, boss I don’t do warm ups!

CM – Paul Ince – a fantastic footballer and a great competitor.

CM – Paul Gascoigne  – without a doubt the best player I played with. A great lad and a terrific footballer who had the ability to travel quicker with the ball. Used to take the game by the scruff of the neck.

CM – Gary McAllister – one of the best ever at set pieces and a great professional. A top drawer player who used to get a lot of goals from midfield.

RW – Chris Waddle – without doubt one of the best wide players I’ve ever seen. Young players still can’t do what Chris could do.

LW – John Barnes – for me one of the best players in the world at the time. He was fit, strong and could go past people, cross the ball, score goals. He had everything.

ST – Gary Lineker – you can’t argue with his goal scoring record. One of the best at attacking at the near post.
