Very tough. Harsh on dozens of players to leave them out, but I've tried to follow the original brief and would say the likes of Shilton and Kinkadze were well past it when they played for us (sadly). I've also brought in the two best academy products from my time watching, as you always take some young players to the World Cup to get a feel of the tournament, even if they might not play much. Though the fit Giles Barnes from that promotion season could turn any game. Wasn't expecting Will Hughes to make the list as a backup midfielder, but his technique just got him the nod.

Think you’ve missed the point regarding Lingard - he hardly played for us!

And half of your squad has only played a dozen games 😂

I found it surprisingly hard to pick wide men so went for extra strikers in the end on the basis that the like of Baiano and Hughes are so adaptable (but would never succumb to the temptation to stick Vydra out wide). Leaving out Davison, Goddard, Sturridge, Strupar and Rasiak was tough and is a reminder of some of the quality strikers we have had over the years.

Maybe Zinedine Kilbane?

Also, Mo Camara was obviously not a world beater, but he was good in the promotion season - seem to remember something silly like 9 clean sheets in a row. Then Billy Davies tinkered about with it and bought in the Scottish/Scouse third of the three Everley brothers, Jay, and we nearly messed it up.

I was never sure what it was about Camara - his shirt was way too big for him and he wore that bandage on his arm and he typically put every Derby fan's heart in their mouth but his positioning was actually pretty decent, but also owrrying to think he is probably one of our better left backs of the last 15 or so years
