I'd like to know why most "all-time" teams feature footballers from the past 15 years only...

A sweeper? Nice throwback Doc.

Here's mine it won't include still active players though and I'll try to avoid the obvious choices for extra fun:

--------------------------------Yashin-----------------------
Carlos Alberto-------Hierro-------Baresi-------Maldini--
--------------Redondo----Matthaus----Rivelino---------
-------------------------------Zico---------------------------
----------------Puskas---------------Di Stefano----------

bench: Van Basten, Batistuta, Cafu, Casillas, Zidane, Camacho, Butragueño

In a hypothetical world such the one in this thread, could Zidane, Maradona and Cruyff actually coincide together?!

Seriously, seeing Busquets in an all time line up is a very worrying trend. Excellent player he is but it really is worrying...

Some myth is going around that Busquets was Spain's best player at the World Cup.

Worrying indeed Doc, worrying indeed

Well sure, I see the argument for it being a bit too early for that and him not doing enough to warrant it.

However, if you want a great ball playing holding midfielder on your team, its quite logical.

The only other options you could go with are probably Redondo and Matthaus, both of whom are far more vertical than Busquets and drove forward with the ball way more than Busquets, which is not something everyone wants when you go the attacking players ahead of them.

When all of Barca's current legends retire/leave whatever it'll be interesting to see if Busquets continues to be "one of the best midfielder's of all time".

Makelele isnt the passer or "get our of pressing" player Busquets is and then add you got Zidane who would rather be in between the lines than deep in midfield. You have to question how well that would work.

Looks like it will end up a broken team with no link.

Its not about "best midfielders of all time" though is it.

Its about a team that actually functions. I assume that was Jibbers idea.

Thank you! Backenbauer is the best ball playing MF, Baresi was used in Saachis offside trap and was good at keeping the defensive line i shape. Cafu is still the best bombing FB I have ever seen, Busquets is doing the role he has been WC at for years.

yup and mine

It seems alot of these teams posted are simply the best ever players chucked together with no real link, majority of which will never work
