Curbs picks his perfect team

Alan Curbishley has picked his perfect team for football magazine 4-4-2:

Goalkeeper: Peter Schmiechel I've never seen anyone warm up for a game like Schmiechel
Right back: Gary Neville A proper leader
Centre back: John terry He's given Chelsea an English backbone
Centre back: Tony Adams Pulled Arsenal through their successful years, single-handedly at times
Left back: Denis Irwin I would think this back four would produce fifteen goals a season
Right midfield: Steven Gerrard A real winner
Centre midfield: Roy Keane My captain, he would sit there in the middle controlling things [not seen at Charlton since Kinsella or perhaps Murphy]
Left midfield: Ryan Giggs Unbelievably consistent
In the hole: Eric Cantona I'm being very offensive with this team [not seen at Charlton]
Striker: Alan Shearer The ultimate centre forward
Striker: Thierry Henry In full flow, just unstoppable
Substitutes: Ashley Cole, Dennis Bergkamp, Frank Lampard, Steve Bruce, Robbie Fowler

Curbs comments, 'In the last 10 years I've come up against all these players and they've hurt me in all sort of ways. I could pick a team with a bit more balance and shape, but as indviduals, these players stand head and shoulders above the rest.'

No room for anyone from Charlton, though.
