I remember as a youngster hearing Ashleigh Brilliant talk, perhaps his best remembered quote is "My opinions may have changed, but not the fact that I am right. "

So to the left backs for our Intergalactic Cup side, as for the right we need two. I will suggest Alex Sandro and Marcelo.

Agree9 Disagree19

29 Sep 2017 09:58:19
Sandro and Alaba for me.

29 Sep 2017 09:59:08
Mendy and Marcelo!

29 Sep 2017 10:15:34
Benjamin Mendy and as an outside shout Kieran Tierney for me.

Tierney is highly sought after by many top clubs in Europe and has age on his side. A quality left back in my view.

29 Sep 2017 10:17:03
Mendy marcelo.

29 Sep 2017 10:20:19
Sandro for sure. He is streets ahead of any other left back right now in my opinion.

I think I'll pick Alaba just ahead of Marcelo for my other pick though, but only because of Versatility. As a left back I think they're well matched, but Alaba can play anywhere except striker or in goal. Marcelo is still an awesome player though.

Shout outs to Marcus Alonso who would've been my pick if we were playing with wing backs. Honourable mentions for Ghoulam, Alba and Kolasinac as well who are also top class.

29 Sep 2017 10:23:05
Marcelo and Kurzawa for me.

29 Sep 2017 10:36:17
Sandro and Marcelo.

29 Sep 2017 10:42:26
alaba and andres guardado

i choose them because they both while are very good at LB, they are simply above others from set pieces. both are good at free kicks. however both do not play at LB for their country.
i would have chosen ricardo rodriguez too but he is defensively suspect.

29 Sep 2017 10:43:28
SHouldnt this go on the teams page 😜😜😜.

{Ed002's Note - I have no problem deleting the thread and letting you screw it up for everyone.}

29 Sep 2017 10:44:11
Mendy is great going forward lads but have you all forgotten how easy it is to get in behind him? Salah should've had Otamendi sent off and at least 2 goals within the first half hour at the Etihad, because Mendy thought he was a left forward for some reason.

He has only had one good season in the French league for the team that won the title. Plus he relies heavily on pace and has just done his ACL. He could never be the same again after that.

He is a decent young attacking left back with potential, but I'd say he is a massive gamble. Ability wise and with his injury. Not saying he is bad, but in my opinion he doesn't belong in the same sentence as players like Sandro, Alaba, Marcelo etc who have done it at the highest level for a few years.

If you are picking him on potential then fair play though.

29 Sep 2017 10:48:59
Totally agree MK.

29 Sep 2017 11:43:26
We have more competition here.

Alaba and Jordi Alba, I would say.

29 Sep 2017 11:53:30
Cheers Corleone. Just realised you picked the same two as me, so i agree with you too!

Drigan that could get confusing on the match day squad 😉 decent picks though.

29 Sep 2017 11:56:20
Sandro and Nabiullin.

29 Sep 2017 12:19:20
Had Djimi Traore retired? If he has, Sandro and Alaba are my picks. Neither will quite live up to Djimi's legacy, but I'm sure they will be able replacements.

29 Sep 2017 12:22:48
Just wanted to say how much I'm enjoying these threads. I don't really watch football outside the PL so I haven't much to contribute but I love the concept.

{Ed025's Note - there are a lot of good full backs in the prem as well putney, you could opt for coleman and baines for instance mate..

29 Sep 2017 12:30:49
Alaba and Alex Sandro.

29 Sep 2017 12:43:54
Definitely Alaba and Sandro.

To be honest, I'm not sure why so many people have overlooked Alaba. He's probably the best leftback, and has been for the past five years or so. He's also versatile and can play centreback, midfield and even as a winger. To overlook him for Marcelo is even more baffling. Marcelo is highly overrated and can't defend. He seemingly models his game on Alves, but has not developed any sort of defensive nous that Alves has done over the years, and so, to call Marcelo a defender just doesn't make sense when he plays as a left forward most of the time.

29 Sep 2017 12:44:20
Marcelo and Alaba for me. If i had 3 picks then Guerreiro might have sneaked in.

29 Sep 2017 12:50:51
I think I missed a day, have we done anyone else apart from goalkeepers? My Left backs are Alaba Ben Davies, ED1 son get in on this.

{Ed001's Note - right backs was yesterday. Did you seriously say Ben Davies? He is not even the best left back at Spurs!}

29 Sep 2017 12:50:49
25, I'll give you 'I'd pick them before our full backs' and leave it at that.

{Ed025's Note - fair enough mate..

29 Sep 2017 13:06:50
David Alaba and Alex Sandro.

I feel no need to explain myself this time.

29 Sep 2017 13:10:18
LB is such a rare commodity. Its so difficult to find a good left back.

Marcelo and Alaba for me.

29 Sep 2017 13:24:43
sandro and mendy for me.

29 Sep 2017 13:46:30
Outside shout for his early season form so far for me would be Riza Durmisi. Yes a little suspect defensively but hen the art of defending seems to have been eradicated from full backs throughout football. Brilliant going forward again just from what I've seen.

Him and I'd still have Ashley Cole if he's match fit.

29 Sep 2017 13:47:44
I'd just have Riise. Probs still got it.

29 Sep 2017 13:48:48
Ricardo Rodriguez and Jordi Alba for me. Both are as good going forward as they are defensively.

29 Sep 2017 13:57:46
David Alaba and Benjamin Mendy for me Eds!

29 Sep 2017 14:07:20
Well between him and Bale Ed1, there's not going to bE many Welsh Flags in the team so I'm trying to squeeze him in at reserve left back lol.

{Ed001's Note - worth a try but it does feel like you are flogging a dead horse.}

29 Sep 2017 14:07:29
Ben Davies? 😲

I think i know his plan Ed001. Create a weakness at left back so that the opposition over commit down that flank to try expose our weak link, and then Bale, ahead of Davies on the left wing, can punish them for being out of position! Genius!

Yr Un sbesial!

29 Sep 2017 14:44:15
Alaba and Sandro.

29 Sep 2017 15:08:37
alaba and sandro for me to.

29 Sep 2017 15:14:09
Smplfc, you skinned me alive the other day for saying Jan Kirchoff was a decent mid table premier league player, and then you come on here claiming Ashley Cole is still in the top 2 left backs in the world? 😲

Only winding you up buddy, but i would love to hear your reasons behind picking Ashley Cole. He must be nearly 40!

29 Sep 2017 15:52:01

It was tongue in cheek and reference to the fact that there are very few top all round full backs in world football today and to show that even as a Welshman, I can appreciate the one genuine world class player England had in their "Golden Generation".


29 Sep 2017 15:47:31
I think Alaba is the best LB (and would be one of the set piece specialist of the team). The second one would be Alex Sandro.

29 Sep 2017 15:51:22
Welsh Red I'll fly that Dragon too son, but only when I can pick Bale. And obviously Robson-Kanu.

Marcelo and Azpilicueta for me. Good mix of attack and defense there depending which planet we're playing. I know Dave is more a RB too but I got somebody else in mind.

29 Sep 2017 16:04:58
Sandro and Alaba for me - excellent in attack and defence and just cannot think of others who come close. I like Marcelo as an attacker but think he is very suspect at the back.

29 Sep 2017 16:37:01
Guerreiro is a hell of a shout Irish Rover. Completely forgot about him. I'm still sticking with Alaba and Sandro, but that's a great shout still.

29 Sep 2017 16:59:05
Right now I'd go with Marcelo and Sandro but come next year the next two top dogs will be Alex Telles and Alex Grimaldo both absolute class.

29 Sep 2017 18:17:09
Marcos Alonso and Raphael Guerreiro for me.

Quality attacking left fullbacks.

29 Sep 2017 18:24:19
I do quite like Felipe Luis and Guerreiro. Alba is decent too, not seen enough of Sandro but a lot of people rate him. Anyone seen much of Kurzawa?

29 Sep 2017 18:29:08
Baines and Alaba for me.

29 Sep 2017 19:19:54
Moreno and Robertson.

Nah, only kidding.

I'm going to be really original and say Alaba and Alex Sandro.

29 Sep 2017 20:22:33
Well there isn’t a lot of quality options here to be honest. I didn’t have a bad season myself there a few seasons ago though. Anyway my picks would probably be Alaba- I forget he is still pretty darn young and still with bags of potential. Keeping in theme of more local players, my second choice would be Tierney.

29 Sep 2017 20:46:09
Any chance of players that can play lb as well as their primary position? For the purposes of the intergalactic squad I'd take Alex sandro and Gareth bale as left backs.

29 Sep 2017 20:58:50
Marcelo and Alonso.

League winning full backs.

29 Sep 2017 21:58:39
Mendy and Marcelo.

29 Sep 2017 23:07:33
Raphael Guerrero and David Alaba.
Two German league lbs, which could be viewed as a league of lesser competitiveness but I enjoyed watching them both at international level also. Alaba is well rounded as they come and Guerrero just gives some extra sort of zip while remaining composed whether attacking or defending.

A few other lads who get the world class tag eg. Marcelo, mendy, Alex Sandro. It could be just me but I've come away from watching them play a bit disappointed for the most part. Glimmer of something extraordinary every now and then doesn't do it for me. Questionable defending from all of these lads will rule them out of my two.

Special mention for Robbie Brady. He's Irish and I think you'll have to have one of us representing the planet for obvious reasons. Might aswell be the best one of us.

30 Sep 2017 03:14:16
Honestly can't argue with any because I mostly watch Premier league and my choice for lb would be at the minute and there's no stand out candidate for me. Alonso. For Rb there's only one for me and that's seamy Coleman. Maybe I'm being biased but before that injury I've always said it. There's not a better Rb in the league.

30 Sep 2017 05:01:37
Sandro and Alaba.

30 Sep 2017 07:33:19
Ashley Young and paolo maldini. 😎.

30 Sep 2017 09:48:16
Alonso and Sandro for me.

30 Sep 2017 13:44:11
Left back has always been a blind spot for me, I have no idea on this one.

30 Sep 2017 15:00:26
Alaba and sandro.
