Steve Nicol #One2Eleven (4-4-2 Formation)
Steve Nicol was a guest on Sky Sports programme The Fantasy Football Club in September 2016 where he picked the eleven best players he had ever played with in their #One2Eleven section of the show.
GK – Bruce Grobbelaar – a great goalkeeper, people seem to unfairly remember him for the times he dropped the ball but for everyone he dropped he caught 1,000.
RB – Phil Neal – Mr Professional who never gave the ball away. For someone who wasn’t blessed with much pace it was very rare for someone to get round him.
LB – Steve Nicol –if I’m picking a dream team then I’m going to be in it.
CB – Alan Hansen – a fantastic player with the ball at his feet who was also the guy you went to on and off of the pitch.
CB – Mark Lawrensen – he formed a great partnership with Alan Hansen and was always the one who put in a last-ditch tackle. They really had a great partnership
RM – Ray Houghton – there weren’t many better passers of a ball going forward than Ray. He was what you’d term a ‘football player’.
CM – Graeme Souness – the best leader of men I have played under. If you were going into a fight you’d want him to be by your side. A fantastic footballer and a real captain.
CM – Jan Molby – no one had a better range of passing than Jan, so accurate. He also got his foot in and scored goals.
LM – John Barnes – an absolute joy to watch when he had the ball at his feet. A lovely guy on and off the field. I can’t say enough good things about him.
ST – Kenny Dalglish & Ian Rush – their telepathy was incredible. Fantastic people and great players. Ask any defenders who played against them and they’ll tell you who was the best.
