Nigel Clough’s all time XI had the best of Arsenal, Liverpool & Manchester United

Nigel Clough picked his best XI on Fantasy Football Club and there were loads of Nottingham Forest legends plus some Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool greats.


At the back were a couple of Forest legends and an Arsenal full back

Lee Dixon’s all-round ability was great, and he was part of that Arsenal back four that you didn’t like playing against. He was solid, and a good player going forward, but first and foremost, he was a good defender.

United’s Bryan Robson was the best there was for England

Robson typified everything you expect from a midfield player. He was competitive, scored goals, good in attack and defence, and a brilliant player for club and country. He was in the England squad when I started, and he was as good as there’s been for England.

Liverpool’s Ian Rush was a natural

Probably the best natural goalscorer I’ve seen. He was two or three moves ahead of everyone else on a football pitch. He would know where that ball was going to be in the six-yard box before anyone else. He was also one of the best defensive strikers that you’ll ever see, he worked so hard in a way that would put full-backs under pressure.
