Not the best XI by any means, but I would have loved to have seen this little 4-4-2 turn out for Dale in their prime (and yes, I've taken some slight liberties with positions).

Evans
Kennedy
Reeves
Dawson
Stuart
Jones
Frain
Gavin
Lambert
Holt

Subs:
Hodge
Whitehall

Wanted to get Mark Gavin in but cannot leave out Mark Stuart so he can play right wing. No doubt missed a few so apologies in advance.

Can't believe nobody mentioned OGrady or Peake yet,Id probably put COG over both Holt and Lambert for talent during their time with us.

Tricky one this!
Best on their day vs consistent performer.
One-season wonders vs years of service.

On the teams proposed so far it seems that the current players aren't really in the running, but they just broke the record for highest league position!

----------Hahnemann----------- (sorry Keith!)

Evans - Dawson - Reeves - Kennedy (first time)

W.Buckley - Jamie Allen - G.Jones - P.Simpson

----------- Lambert - Holt ---------------

As I say, not necessarily the best XI man by man, but collectively one I'd loved to have seen.

One area we've excelled in this century is strikers, but together Holt and Lambert were the perfect foils for one another. They get the nod from me.

I was a big fan of Jason Peake in the midfield, too, and you could argue for Will Buckley on the wing, but everyone will have their own ideas.

Why not go the whole hog and put Dennis Butler in his natural position on the left wing instead of playing a central striker out of position.

Other than that I can't argue much. I've seen some great performance from that collection of players.

Norman Whitehead was a real enigma, when he was in the mood he could take any full back to the cleaners. One minute he was going to Man City for mega bucks next thing he was off to Rotherham in exchange for Lee Brogden.

One or two players I would have thought would have got a mention - Alan Taylor, David Cross, Paul Butler, Laurie Calloway.

For pure talent, and pure talent only - there are very few / none better than Paddy... his career following us would also back that up.

Simmo was fantastic in his spell as a player (not player/manager) and there wont be any other players who scored as many fantastic goals as he did for us.

Mick Poole has got to be one of the best keepers we've had
Tony Whelan was a very gifted player and Paul Hallows wasn't bad.
My personal favorite being a striker myself was Bob Mountford hence my avatar.
I'm a friend of Andy Slacks who played in goal for us and made his debut against Huddersfield after we had sold Mountford to them. Tells a very good tale about that game and his battle with big Bob.
These guys played at a time when this board had it have been up and running would have gone into rinse and spin after the performances we had to suffer back in the day.

Purposely avoided current Dale players. If I'm not allowed loan players I'd have Jobson instead of O'Connell.

Andy used to be my coach when I played for Walshaw Park during my school years.

Doesn't he hold some kind of record at Dale? Most consecutive appearances in goal without a clean sheet, something like that?

You don't have to be a big guy to intimidate opponents. Hughen Riley didn't look much but plenty of so called hard players knew to keep out of his way. I remember John Bramhall having a real battle with " Fash the Bash " and never taking a backward step. Colin Parry was in a similar mould.
