CL- best 11

Players chosen not based on post-match reports but based on observation during the CL matches (from 2nd round).

Goalkeeper - Gigi Buffon. Extremely brave and agile. Undoubtedly the best in the game, Cech comes in close.
Centreback - Jamie Carragher. Was mighty impressive against Juventus and Chelsea. Who needs Terry or Campbell?
Centreback - Jaap Stam. I am a fan. MU's greatest loss, extremely reliable. Good in air.
Left-back - YP Lee. Tenacious and creative, an Asian gem. JS Park is good but this guy's better.
Right-back - Gianluca Zambrotta. Killer pace, killer crosses. Actually can play both sides. Tho' u see him playing in the left more.
Centre - Ronaldinho. Exciting. An absolute genius. Capable of scoring unthinkable goals.
Centre - Kaka. Creative, and unpredictable. Young but not temperemental.
Left-midfield - Damien Duff. Superb player. First noticed his immense talent when he played against Germany in World Cup 2002.
Right-midfield - Van Bommel. Hard-working and consistent. An inspirational captain. Can become the fifth defender.
Striker - Andriy Shevchenko. A skillful and fast forward. Finishes well. Good in air.
Striker - Samuel Eto'o. Would partner well with Sheva. Is not a bad striker himself.

Tomm. early morning match: Milan - Liverpool (2-0). But Milan must not play cautious football.
