Dynamo Kyiv Greatest All-Time Team

This blogger Artur Yanturin of Russia copied my blog team.  His entry was written in November 2020, but mine was uploaded in 2017.  I also updated mine periodically.  I looked mistakes. He kept my mistakes.  He seemed to be someone from the formerly Soviet Union.  He should know the topic much more than I do, but he still made my mistakes.  He also copied many many of my blog entries.   His Spartak Moscow All-Time team entry of was published in October 2020, but mine was uploaded in 2017.  His entry of the Dutch-German rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona was written in 2020, but mine was uploaded in 2014.  He also copied many many of my blog entries.

Цей блогер Артур Янтурін з Росії скопіював мою команду блогу. Його запис був написаний у листопаді 2020 року, але мій був завантажений у 2017 році. Я також періодично оновлював свою. Я дивився помилки. Він зберігав мої помилки. Здавалося, він був хтось із колишнього Радянського Союзу. Він мав би знати цю тему набагато більше, ніж я, але він все одно зробив мої помилки. Він також скопіював багато багатьох записів у моєму блозі. У жовтні 2020 року було опубліковано його запис про команду «Спартак» за всі часи, але моє було завантажено в 2017 році. Його запис про голландсько-німецьке суперництво між «Реалом» і «Барселоною» було написано в 2020 році, але моє було завантажено в 2014 році. Він також скопіював багато багато моїх записів у блозі.

Honorable Mention
Yuriy Voynov, Volodymyr Veremeyev,  Anatoliy Byshovets, Valyantsin Byalkevich, Viktor Serebryanikov, Yozhef Sabo, Andriy Yarmolenko, Viktor Kanevskyi, Oleh Husyev, Vladyslav Vashchuk, Artem Milevskiy, Volodymyr Troshkin.

Sqaud Explanation 
-- The three greatest players who had played for Dynamo Kyic were Andrei Shevchenko, Oleg Blokhin and Igor Belanov.  All three had won the Ballon d'or.  Blokhin and Belanov won the award when it was an award for European player only.  They are my automatic selections for the team.
-- Most players selected were older players from the Soviet Union when Soviet football was a force in European football.
-- Only two players from my Ukraine All-Time team did not play for Dynamo Kyiv.  Nineteen of them are on this team. Two other players (Viktor Bannikov and Andriy Biba) made the "Honorable Mention" here.  
-- Maksim Shatskikh, Vasyl Rats, Volodymyr Muntyan, Leonid Buryak, Vasyl Turyanchyk and Yevhen Rudakov were the six players not on my Ukraine All-Time team. Except for Vasyl Turyanchy, they were not of Ukrainian ethnicity.  They edged out Viktor Bannikov and Andriy Biba who are my all-time Ukrainian team, but not on this club's all-time team.
-- Maksim Shatskikh is the all-time scorer of the Ukrainian Premier League with 124 goal.  He represented Uzbekistan in football.  
--The other four players were from the Soviet era.  For players from the Soviet era, I only took ethnic Ukrainian to be on my my  Ukraine All-Time team. Vasyl Rats was born in Ukraine of Hungarian ethnicity.  Volodymyr Muntyan was an ethnic Romanian while Leonid Buryak was Jewish. Yevhen Rudakov is often listed as the greatest goalkeeper from Ukraine.  He was actually an ethnic Russian playing for Dynamo Lyiv.
-- Vasyl Turyanchyk was one of the first ever holding midfielder in the world. 
-- I forgot about rightback Volodymyr Troshkin.  He seemed to one of the best ever from the former USSR.
-- Andriy Biba who used to play in front Vasyl Turyanchyk also deserved to be on this team.  He was described as one of Soviet Union's best playmaker, but I have selected players with better international experience.  He only got one cap to his credit. Volodymyr Muntyan, Leonid Buryak and Oleksandr Zavarov were chosen ahead of him. 
-- Dynamo Kyiv's successes are tied with coach Valeriy Lobanovskyi.  Under him, the cub won two Cup Winners' Cup.
-- In 1975, Dynamo Kyiv won their first Cup Winners Cup.  From that team, I selected the following players into this all-time team: Oleg Blokhin, Yevhen Rudakov, Vladimir Muntyan, Leonid Buryak, Mykhaylo Fomenko and Volodymyr Onyshchenko.
-- In 1986, Dynamo Kyiv beat Atletico Madrid to win their second Cup Winners' Cup.  The following players from that team made this all-time team: Oleg Blokhin, Igor Belanov,  Oleksandr Zavarov, Vasyl Rats, Anatoliy Demyanenko, Sergei Baltacha and Vladimir Bessonov.  It was Blokhin's second Cup Winners' Cup.
-- I also selected Valeriy Lobanovskyi as a player.  I toyed with the idea of dropping him, but his name had been associated more than any person in history.
-- Yuriy Voynov was a star in the 1960's.  He just missed out.
-- I tried to select players from the post-Soviet era. Andrei Shevchenko is the obvious choice.  In 1999, Dynamo Kyviv eliminated defending Champions' League winner Real Madrid and advanced to the semifinal of the Champions' League.  From that team, I selected  Andrei Shevchenko, Oleksandr Shovkovskiy and Serhiy Rebrov.  Andrei Shevchenko moved to AC Milan, where his position was replaced with Dynamo Kyiv by Maksim Shatskikh.
-- It is difficult for rightback Oleh Husyev to get into the team.  He had two great players ahead of him. Oleh Luzhnyi was a part Of Dynamo Kyiv's resurgence in the 1990's. Vladimir Bezsonov was one of the greatest fullbacks from the Soviet era.

Formation I: 4-1-3-2
I based this lineup on the 4-3-2 formation used by Valeriy Lobanovskyi on at the 1986 Cup-Winners' Cup Final.  In order to bring Shenvchenko to the team, I pushed Blokhin to the midfield on the left.
