Steve Watson #One2Eleven (3-4-3 Formation)

Steve Watson was a guest on Sky Sports programme The Fantasy Football Club in September 2015 where he picked the eleven best players he had ever played with in their #One2Eleven section of the show.

GK – Shay Given – the best reaction goalkeeper I have ever Steve Watson One2Elevenseen in my life. A good talker, he had good distribution and off his line quick.

RCB – Sol Campbell – a natural leader and great on a 1v1 situation. Quick, strong and a really good pro.

LCB – Phillipe Albert – the best footballing centre-half I’ve ever seen. A world class defender who could score goals.

CB – Gareth Southgate – an unbelievably good reader of the game, and would be comfortable playing either side. Very good talker and leader.

Holding Midfielder – David Batty – hard as nails and a very, very good footballer. Always wanted the ball and could score goals.

RM – Rob Lee – a really hard working footballer who could play behind the front two or drop back in midfield.

LM – David Ginola – the best player I played with an incredible to watch. He was strong, could turn, put balls in, score and he was very skilful.

CM – Paul Gascoigne – probably past his best when I played with him at Everton but he could still take the ball anywhere on the pitch.

Right Forward – Peter Beardsley – the most consistent player during my time at Newcastle. Two-footed and a scorer of great goals.

Left Forward – Wayne Rooney – I was there when he made his impact on the game. Even at 15 or 16 years old he acted like a 25-year-old knocking people all over the place in training but he had respect and was never cheeky.

Centre Forward – Alan Shearer – the best out and out goalscorer I’ve ever seen. Strong, incredible in the air and a great target man.
