And it's not as if there weren't plenty of other journeyman footballers who you could've picked.

Lee Sharpe and Chris Waddle spring to mind...

Chris Waddle was last seen playing for a pub team in a village near Scunthorpe, as it happens.

You mean you haven't heard about his joining the Paul rideout All Star XI? Only featuring players who were crap for England in the 80s and early 90s?

I was discussing him with someone last week, and I can honestly say I still don't know who he is. My friend was saying "you remember Geoff Thomas, played for Crystal palce, missed an open goal for England) and I was going "no, no idea, never heard of the fella"
