    Keogh Rose
    Thomas Kelly
    Bigi Walsh
    McSheffrey O hare

    I always rated Murphy, Wood and Keogh. I think they could each have a spot in the team somewhere, especially if we're talking about them in their prime. McSheffrey on a good day would make it in on ability but not sure he'd work in the current setup.

    I was always just a big fan of Bigi, Christie and Baker but I don't think they'd fit in now and have easily been surpassed by our current players.

    McSheffrey too let’s be honest. And maybe Cranie.

    Wood was awful, strikers would run rings round him for fun

    Christie has played nearly 200 games at Championship level and is at Fulham who are third. Dabo is good but has proven nothing at that level yet

    Baker is a no from me - was ok at league 1 level , but never in the championship
    Wood and Christie I will give you
    Mcsheffrey - I think by then he was done
    Keepers are a close call
    so possibly 3 or 4 into this team - albeit we got relegated without a whimper back then

    It’s close between the defences. Midfield would be this seasons and also Godden over Platt. Was he really the first choice striker that year? That can’t be right. Juke left in January, right?

    To answer the thread title, current team would absolutely hammer relegated team 1-0.

    Our end of season strike force was Platt and Nimely wasn’t it?

    From that 11 I’d take Cranie, Wood, Keogh for the first team Murphy and Christie possibly. The midfield and strikeforce looks like one that would have struggled league 2

    from the whole season Jutkiewicz would be a first pick

    We actually had Wilson, Clingan, Olly Norwood in that squad. So id still take Wilson ahead of Godden, and as i said above Juke would be first pick

    Clingan ahead of Kelly

    Very true. I suppose it's easier to think about the form and quality of certain players in the team right now than those guys back then. Christie was always a favourite and I remember thinking he stood out above the rest. But while Dabo isn't yet proven at Championship level, I reckon all the signs are there and would give Christie a run for his money!

    wilson was nowhere near the 1st team in 2012
    and Juke was not in the relegated team - left half way

    I’ll give you Wilson, but Juke was part of the first team and I’m pretty sure was still top scorer at the end despite leaving in January - May not have been in the last day team but was still in the squad

    i think the answer lies in the attacking line up of that team in 2012
    not anywhere near enough goals
    it was the same with team that got relegated 3 years ago
    the current team would be far better than the team in 2012 and certainly 2017

    Just for a clearer comparison the most used team that season was:

    Murphy

    Christie
    Keogh
    Cranie
    Hussey

    Bell
    Clingan
    Thomas
    McSheffrey

    Platt
    Jutkiewicz

    Cranie was never spectacular but always solid.

    That relegated team should really have stayed up, should have sacked the joke of a manager in January to give us a chance. There are otherwise quite a number of players who have gone on to have decent careers in the Championship.

    The only fair way would be to compare the best 11s that season, given that you have included loan players in the current team.

    Murphy Marosi
    Christie Dabo
    Hussey McCallum
    Cranie Hyam
    Wood McFazdean
    Keogh Rose
    Clingan Kelly
    Bigi Walsh
    McSheffrey O hare
    Norwood Allen
    Juke Godden


    Christie, Cranie, norwood and Juke definitely.

    None would necessarily make us better, Wood, Christie, Keogh, McSheffrey, Cranie would boost the squad, but none imo would walk into the first eleven. But a number of today’s group would get into that 2012 team.
