There was actually a time in the early

''90s when you could make up a perfectly respectable team (a bit short

on fullbacks but otherwise OK) in a kind of wing-back formation from

players we had sold who were playing in the top flight in England or


From memory it was something like Woods in goal, Sherwood and Phillips

as wing-backs, Linighan, Bruce and Watson in central defence, a

midfield of Gordon, Townsend and Phelan, and Fleck and Drinkell up

front. Not to mention a couple of subs.
