Ashdown ... Cole and Karadas in our greatest ever team.. yeah right ... Maybe I'll have a look later but come on .. there has to be a starting point that team surely is not it .... I wonder if this will be as good as ... Well marketed but little substance unless it lures us all to it's advertising.. Still I haven't looked yet !

Couldn't resist so had a look ... My first chice was Kanu v Snerick !!! and Striker v a Forward .. strange ... BUT looking at the team it now looks a little better .. Ashdown, Cole and Karadas have gone .. but we now have Sean Davis and Papa as a greatest midfielders ... .. Despite what I said earlier .. It is worth a look .. but watch out for the flashy advertising..
