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.
