The Football Teams The Streets Will Never Forget

The Football Teams The Streets Will Never Forget

"The streets will never forget" has become the main phrase for football fans to reminisce about old teams and players, with 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, the Saints finished in seventh place in the Premier League.

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 fit the criteria but further suggestions in the thread have flooded in. Claudio Ranieri's Leicester City fairytale team of 2015/16 was beloved by all as they won the Premier League at odds of 5000/1.

Who can forget AC Milan's dreamy 2004/05 side featuring a dominant defence starring 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 Spaniard and king of the streets, Michu, scoring 18 Premier League goals - with Tony Pulis's polar opposite, physical Stoke City side are also in the mix.

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.




What a mix of players and teams. Which sides will you never forget?
