One thing I think we can all agree on is that could be in a very different position now if the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Joe Cole, Frank Lampard, and Michael Carrick had stayed at the club.

However, a question that is sparking up plenty of debate on is the one that follows…

The Academy of Football teaser is a tricky one, but I think I’d have to go for Michael Carrick in terms of what the club actually needs at the moment – he could replace Mark Noble and be an excellent figure for to learn from in the centre of midfield.

Admittedly though, it would be tempting to go for the midfield threat of Lampard, the goal-scoring prowess of Defoe up top, the solidity of Rio at the back or even the skill of a man who wasn’t included in the poll in the of Cole.
