Only 2 players? You’re joking.

How many times do you hear “The only good players for Liverpool are Gerrard and Torres” or “The only Liverpool players that could fit into Man Utd’s squad are Gerrard and Torres”?. About every week? Well where is United’s “Top Class” midfield? They have one quality player, Ryan Giggs, who is getting too old to play. And their “top class” strikers? Wayne Rooney isn’t even near Torres’ league, and Berbatov, for me, is too lazy and won’t even fit in our reserves. Van Der Sar is getting too old, and Ben Foster doesn’t know what he’s doing. Vidic, yes, is a world class defender. I would take him. Ferdinand is not doing good lately, and we have Carragher, Agger, Skrtel, Kelly and more central defenders. Wes Brown and Evra are  great, but Johnson is better than Evra, and Insua is younger and better than Brown. Also, Aqilani is meant to be a replacement for Alonso, so expect him to shine when he is fully fit.

So here is my unbiased team of Man Utd and Liverpool players:

Liverpool

Manchester United

—————————————————Reina—————————————–

Johnson————Vidic——————–Ferdinand———————-Insua

———————————————- Mashcerano———————————

——————— Aquilani—————-Anderson———————–Giggs

———————————————— Gerrard—————————–

————————————————Torres——————————

Subs: Van Der Sar, Carragher, Kuyt, Valencia, Benayoun, Rooney

This is MY opinion, so please no bad comments.
