Ian Marshall #One2Eleven (5-3-2 Formation)
Ian Marshall was a guest on Sky Sports programme The Fantasy Football Club in 2016 where he picked the eleven best players he had ever played with in their One2Eleven section.
GK – Tim Flowers – top man, good to have in the changing room. Extremely hard worker in training.
WB – Pontus Kamark – the best man-to-man marker I’ve ever seen. A brilliant trainer and looked after himself really well.
CB – Gerry Taggart – old-school player who just won the ball and passed it. There was no messing about with him.
CB – Matt Elliott – he read the game very well and also had a sexy little turn.
CB – Steve Walsh – He’s a total Leicester man and gave his all for Leicester every game -he’s a good captain to have.
WB – Steve Guppy – he wasn’t the greatest tackler in the world but had a great left peg. Good at tracking back.
CM – Muzzy Izzet – the best player I have played with. Had the tricks and scored some fantastic goals.
CM – Gary McAllister – a great free-kick taker and could ping a ball anywhere.
LM – Neil Lennon – loads of energy who got in there and won the ball. Always there if there was any trouble.
Striker – Emile Heskey – had everything, power, speed and strength. Very unselfish which meant that he didn’t score enough.
Striker – Tony Cottee – an out and out goalscorer. In the box he was tremendous.
