'The Streets Will Never Forget' - Fans Reminisce About Some Of The Greatest Football Teams In Recent History
"The streets will never forget" has become the main phrase for football fans to reminisce about old teams and players and people are doing just that on social media in one big thread.
Bet365 kicked it all off on Twitter with Southampton's 2014/15 side. Under Ronald Koeman, who replaced Mauricio Pochettino at the helm Saints finished in seventh place in the Premier League and played some wonderful football.
The likes of Toby Alderweireld, Sadio Mane, Victor Wanyama and Dusan Tadic all made serious waves at St Mary's before moving on to bigger and better things.
That Saints side is perfect criteria for the streets never forgetting but suggestions in the thread flooded in.
Claudio Ranieri's Leicester City fairytale title-winning side in 2015/16 was beloved by all as they won the Premier League against odds of 5000/1.
Who can forget AC Milan's dreamy 2004/05 team featuring a dominant defence featuring the legendary Paolo Maldini, Alessandro Nesta and Cafu, shielded by pitbull Gennaro Gattuso - who provided the base for Andrea Pirlo, Clarence Seedorf and Kaka to strut their stuff and give service to frontmen Filippo Inzaghi and Andriy Shevchenko.
Swansea's 2012/13 Capital One Cup winning side under Michael Laudrup gets a deserved mention - mainly for Michu scoring 18 Premier League goals in his second season - with Tony Pulis' physical Stoke City side the absolute polar opposite.
There's North-West nostalgia with Bolton and Blackburn Rovers, who both had very good sides back in the day, while Portsmouth's 2007/08 FA Cup winning team, Everton's irritating 2008/09 XI and Aston Villa's 2009/10 side managed by Martin O'Neill are all very good shouts.
