Just been looking at this and thought "what about one for Wirral born players past and present
Dixie Dean would be first on the list

Athletic Bilbao's 'Basque only' policy.

Revisiting the idea of a Scouse team in 2012, I think it would look something like this.

1. Tony Warner (Wellington Phoenix) or Paul Harrison (New Saints)
2. Tony Hibbert (Everton)
3. Leighton Baines (Everton)
4. Jamie Carragher (Liverpool)
5. Scott Dann (Blackburn Rovers)
6. Joey Barton (QPR)
7. Adam Hammill (Wolves)
8. Steven Gerrard (Liverpool)
9. Wayne Rooney (Manchester United)
10. Rickie Lambert (Southampton)
11. Darren Potter (MK Dons)Subs would include: Nolan, Kelly, Ryan Taylor, Flanagan, Barkley, Nugent, and Orr.


One would expect that the city of Liverpool would do well here (after all Liverpool produces more England players per head of population than any other region). The goalkeeper is the obvious weakspot. The wonderfully named Anthony Randolph Warner is now 37 and playing in New Zealand. Harrison is playing in the Welsh league. The rest of the team, though, is pretty darned solid.



A Liverpool only rule is needlessly restrictive - and far more restrictive than Athletic's policy. If we extended it out to Merseyside we could add in Spearing (Birkenhead), Jack Rodwell (Southport), Osman (Billinge), Jon Walters (Moreton, Wirral), Stephen Warnock (Ormskirk), and Jamie Jones (Kirkby). Jones, of Orient, is probably Merseyside's finest keeper but the team is better for having Osman, Walters and Rodwell.

However, Merseyside is a fairly modern construct. It is the barstard child of some bureaucrat who thought destroying the counties of England was a good idea
Born in Liverpool in 1948, Roy McFarland’s career began as an 18 year-old centre-half with Tranmere Rovers

Bobby Tynan played for Tranmere and Blackpool if my memory is correct and I am sure he was one of the most expensive signings at the time.
