THE 90S WAS PERUZZI'S IN ITALY. HE WAS COLOSSUS AT THE BACK FOR JUVENTUS AND WAS PART OF THE 2006 WORLD CUP WINNING SQUAD.
INCREDIBLE LONGEVITY AND IN A VERY CLOSE CONTEST, BEATS OFF COMPETITION FROM CAFU AND LILIAN THURAM.
CONTROVERSIAL BUT, AS FRANCO BARESI RETIRED IN 1997, I JUST DON'T REMEMBER HIM THAT WELL. NESTA WAS ALREADY LAZIO CAPTAIN AT 21 . SUPERB ON THE BALL, AS WELL.
THIS WAS JUST THE START OF A WONDERFUL CAREER. ALESSANDRO NESTA AND COSTACURTA WERE UNLUCKY TO MISS OUT, BUT CANNAVARO WAS JUST A CLASS ACT.
SIMPLY THE GREATEST LEFT BACK OF ALL TIME.
CRIMINALLY UNDERRATED. MOVED TO CENTRAL DEFENCE LATER IN HIS CAREER, BUT ALMOST EARNED THIS PLACE WITH HIS PERFORMANCE AGAINST BARCELONA ALONE.
IN MANY WAYS, HE WAS TOO GOOD. ITALIAN MANAGERS WERE USED TO HAVING PLAYERS THEY KNEW WHAT THEY WOULD GET FROM. BUT BAGGIO WAS AN UNPREDICTABLE GENIUS. FOR ME, ITALY'S GREATEST EVER PLAYER.
MANUEL RUI COSTA.
AN ICONIC PLAYER AT FIORENTINA. A SUPERB PLAYERMAKER WITH A GREAT EYE FOR A GOAL.
ALESSANDRO DEL PIERO.
POSSIBLY THE MOST ICONIC PLAYER OF ITALIAN FOOTBALL IN THE 1990S. SCORED SO MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF GOALS. ONLY A TERRIBLE KNEE INJURY PREVENTED HIM BECOMING ONE OF THE ALL TIME GREATS.
LOYALTY WAS HIS DOWNFALL AS HE NEVER PLAYED IN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE UNTIL HE WAS 30. LETHAL IN FRONT OF GOAL AND WAS NEVER CONTENT AND WAS SO DIFFICULT TO MARK AS HE HAD EVERYTHING.
YES, NO RONALDO. HE IS CERTAINLY GOOD ENOUGH, BUT ONLY SPENT TWO 90S SEASONS IN SERIE A. WEAH WAS SUCH A SYMBOLIC FIGURE ON AND OFF THE PITCH AND WON TWO LEAGUE TITLES WITH MILAN.
AMAZING ALL ROUND KEEPER AND I BELIEVE HE IS THE GOAT AMONG GOALIES. ONE OF THOSE RARE KEEPERS WHOM YOU JUST LOVE TO WATCH. THAT SWEEPER PERFORMANCE AGAINST ALGERIA IN 2014 LITERALLY WON GERMANY THE WORLD CUP.
ONE OF THE BEST 1 V 1 DEFENDERS AND BLEEDS CHELSEA BLUE THROUGHOUT. HIS PASSION AND WORK RATE IS TERRIFIC. I LOVE YOU DAVE.
AT HIS PRIME, HE REALLY WAS THE COMPLETE DEFENDER. HE CAN DO IT ALL, GOAL LINE CLEARANCES TO STARTING ATTACKS. AND HE'S QUITE EASY ON THE EYES ASWELL, RIGHT?
HE HAS NOT PROVEN MUCH, BUT I LOVE HIM NONETHELESS. JUST AN ORIGINAL GUYS WHO'S COME FROM THE BOTTOM WHO HAS PLAYED IN A CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL AND CAPTAINS HIS NATION. GO ROBBO!
ABSOLUTE MAGICIAN WITH THE BALL AT HIS FEET. TERRIBLY UNDERRATED AND WAS ONE OF THE BEST IN THE WORLD AT HIS POSITIONIN THIS PRIME. SAD TO SEE HIS CAREER CUT SHORT DUE TO INJURIES.
AS A CHELSEA FAN THIS MAN HAS TO BE AN IDOL. OH FRANKIE, THE GOALS YOU SCORED WHEN WE NEEDED THEM MOST. MY FAVOURITEPLAYER OF ALL TIME.
I THINK THIS MAN IS UNDERRATED ASWELL. HIS SENSE OF SPACE AND POSITION WAS UNPARALLELED AND THE CALMNESS HE BROUGHTWAS SOOTHING TO WATCH. TRULY ONE OF A KIND.
OOZING WITH TECHNIQUE, HE MADE UP FOR HIS LACK OF PHYSIQUE BY THOUSANDS OF IMPECCABLE TOUCHES AND PASSES. ALWAYS INCONTROL OF EVERYTHING AROUND HIM. AND THOSE FREE KICKS WERE UNBELIEVABLE ASWELL.
HOW CAN YOU HATE THIS GUY? ALWAYS SMILING, AND I REPEAT, ALWAYS. NOT A BAD PLAYER EITHER. ABSOLUTE GEM.
THIS MAN HAS PROVIDED ME WITH MORE JOY THAN ANY OTHER HUMAN. I'VE SEEN HIS GAME ON YOUTUBE AND LIVE FOR THOUSANDS OFHOURS AND I'M STILL NOT SATISFIED. ENJOY THE GOAT WHILE YOU CAN PEOPLE.
THIS PICK IS DUE TO MY CHELSEA BIAS, BUT HE HAS LIGHTENED UP THE CLUB SINCE HIS ARRIVAL. AN UNBELIEVABLE PLAYER, AND A REALLY LOVABLE GUY OFF THE PITCH ASWELL. DON'T LEAVE US EDEN.
QUITE SIMPLY, THE GREATEST GK OF THE PREMIER LEAGUE ERA AND A ONE MAN IMPENETRABLE WALL WHO RAISED THE BAR FORWHAT COULD AND SHOULD BE EXPECTED FROM A WORLD CLASS GOALKEEPER. TO SEE HIM BEAR DOWN ON AN OPPOSING PLAYER, EXPANDING THAT ALREADY HUGE FRAME OUT INTO THE PATENTED STARFISH OF NET SMOTHERING LIMBS, YOU ALWAYS FELT THE OPPOSITION PLAYER WAS SECOND BEST.
SOLID. RELIABLE. SURPRISINGLY PROLIFIC FOR A DEFENDER IN AN ERA WHEN THE MARAUDING FULL-BACK WASN'T YET A THING.
LIKE NICOL ON THE OTHER FLANK. ALMOST NEVER A BAD GAME. STRONG IN THE TACKLE. NO FUSS OR FANFARE. DEADLY FROM 12 YARDS. EVERYTHING YOU WANT IN AN OLD SCHOOL FULL-BACK AND MORE.
EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP WINNER. CHAMPIONS LEAGUE WINNER. BALLON D'OR WINNER. IN A TWO YEAR PERIOD SAMMER WAS, AS THELAST BASTION OF THE NOW SADLY DEFUNCT LIBERO, THE GREATEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD. A RAMPAGING POWERHOUSE WHO BROKETHE LINES FROM DEEP AND MADE DORTMUND AND GERMANY TICK. INJURY CRUELLY ENDED HIS CAREER AND PROBABLY DENIED HIM A PLACE AT THE TABLE OF THE PANTHEON OF ALL-TIME GREATS.
'II CAPITANO'. THE BEST DEFENDER THERE EVER WAS, OR EVER WILL BE. AS A ONE CLUB AC MILAN LEGEND HE RE-DEFINED AND ELEVATED THE ART OF DEFENDING FOR 25 ILLUSTRIOUS YEARS. DEVILISHLY HANDSOME BASTARD TO BOOT.
THE DEFENSIVE DESTROYER NEXT TO MALDINI'S ARTISTE. STAM POSSESSED THE SPEED, STRENGTH AND FEROCITY OF TACKLE YOU'D EXPECT FROM ANY WORLD CLASS CENTRE BACK AT THE TOP OF THEIR GAME. BUT TO ALSO WATCH HIS CHARACTERISTICALLY DUTCH UNDERSTANDING OF SPACE AND POSITIONAL SENSE MERGEWITH HIS EASE ON THE BALL WAS AKIN TO OBSERVING A HENCHMAN FROM DIE HARD 2 UNEXPECTEDLY PERCH IN FRONT OF A STEINWAY AND FLUENTLY COMPOSE A PIANO SONATA.
AT HIS PEAK, CAPABLE OF SINGLE HANDEDLY TAKING A GAME BY THE SCRUFF OF THE NECK LIKE NO OTHER. SEE (MAN UTD VS JUVENTUS CL SEMI-FINAL 1999) DIVISIVE. UNCOMPROMISING. BRILLIANT. KEANE GAVE NO QUARTER AND EXPECTED THOSE IN HIS COLOURS TO DO THE SAME.
THE FOOTBALLERS FOOTBALLER. ANY OTHER NATION IN THE WORLD WOULD HAVE BUILT A TEAM AROUND HIM. HE WAS ENGLAND'S PLANTINI, BUT INSTEAD, LIKE HODDLE BEFORE HIM, THE LONG SHADOW OF WING COMMANDER CHARLES REEP AND THE NATIONS ANTIQUATED OBSESSIONWITH THE PHYSICALITY OF A BOX TO BOX MIDFIELDER LOOMED OVER HIS INTERNATIONAL CAREER. BUT WITHIN THE WALLS OF OLD TRAFFORD, AMONGST THE GREATEST TEAM OF THE PREMIER LEAGUE ERA, HE WAS A GOLDEN GOLD.
WORTH HIS PLACE IN THE TEAM JUST FOR SCORING THE GREATEST VOLLEY OF ALL TIME (SIT DOWN, MARCO V.B) INCONSISTENT? POSSIBLY. BUT WHEN YOU CAN DOMINATE ON THE BIG STAGE WITH SUCH ELEGANCE (FRANCE 98 WORLD CUP FINAL - SIT DOWN, RONALDO) ONE CAN FORGIVE PATCHES OF INCONSISTENCY IN A GLITTERING CAREER. UNPLAYABLE AT EURO 2000. HIS CRANIALLY DELIVERED COUP-DE-GRAS ON MATERAZZI IN 2006 IS EITHER A SAD TRANSGRESSION OR FITTING END TO THE ULTIMATE MERCURIAL TALENT WITHA PENCHANT FOR THE DARK SIDE. TOO OFTEN IT ENDS NOT WITH A BANG, BUT WITH A WHIMPER. NOT FOR ZISSOU.
MY FAVOURITE PLAYER OF ALL TIME. FIRST NAME ON THIS, OR ANY, TEAM SHEET.
BACK IN SERIE A HE WAS THE POSTER BOY OF WORLD FOOTBALL, BATIGOL WAS RESPLENDENT IN THAT ICONIC PURPLE FIORENTINA KIT. SCORING SUBLIME GOALS WHAT SEEMED LIKE EVERY SINGLE WEEK. MORE THAN ANY OTHER PLAYER THE ONE I WISHED TURN UP AT UNITED. OR AT THE VERY LEAST IN ENGLAND.
PAGLIUCA IS ONE OF THE GREATEST GOALKEEPERS IN THE SERIE A 90S ERA. FAST RESPONSE, GREAT POSITION PLACEMENT AND THE ABILITY TO READ OPPONENT'S PENALTY KICKS. WERE JUST SOME OF THE CAPABILITIES THAT MADE HIM GREAT. HE WAS ALSO IN THE SAMPDORIA SQUAD WHEN THEY WON THE SERIE A CHAMPIONSHIP IN 1991 .
LOYAL, CHARISMATIC, FAST, GOOD LEADERSHIP. ALL OF WHICH MADE HIM BOTH A LEGEND AND AN ICON IN INTER'S BACK LINE. HE ACCOMPLISHED SO MUCH WITH INTER AND EVEN IN THE LATTER STAGES OF HIS CAREER HE WAS SUCCESSFULLY LEADING INTER TO ACHIEVE THE TREBLE IN 2010S.
ONE OF THE BEST AC MILAN DEFENDERS IN HISTORY. HIS ABILITY TO LEAD THE TEAM AND TO READ THE OPPONENT'S GAME MADE HIM A SACRED LEGEND IN AC MILAN HISTORY.
BARESI'S PARTNER IN MILAN'S DREAM TEAM ERA. HE WAS AN UNSUNG HERO BUT HIS EXISTENCE ON THE FIELD ALWAYS MADE SURE HE HAD A GREAT INFLUENCE ON THE TEAM.
MALDINI STARTED HIS STORY IN MILAN AT THE RIGHT TIME. HE GREW RAPIDLY WITH GREAT PLAYERS IN MILAN, A PLAYER WHO ONLY WORE RED AND BLACK HIS ENTIRE CAREER. HE WAS A PLAYER WITH AN EXTRAORDINARY ABILITY, NO WONDER SIR ALEX FERGUSON CALLED HIM AS THE STRONGEST OPPONENT HIS TEAM HAS EVER FACED.
A DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDER WHO HAS A COMPLETE ACHIEVEMENT THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER AT CLUB AND COUNTRY. ONE OF THEPLAYERS WHO HAD INTELLIGENCE AND EXTRAORDINARY FIGHTING SPIRIT. HE ALSO BECAME A PLAYER WHO SUCCESSFULLY ACHIEVED WINNING THE WORLD CUP BOTH AS A PLAYER AND COACH.
PORTUGUESE PEOPLE AND THE WORLD KNOW HIM AS 'THE MAESTRO' EVEN RICARDO KAKA CALLS HIM THE PROFESSOR. HIS MOVEMENTSAROUND THE FIELD WERE SO ELEGANT EVEN THOUGH THEY LOOKED A LITTLE BIT SLOW. HIS ASSISTS AND PASSING WERE SO PRECISE. NO WONDER CRISTIANO RONALDO, HIS JUNIOR IN THE PORTUGAL NATIONAL TEAM MADE HIM HIS FAVOURITE PLAYER.
NEDVED ALWAYS PLAYED GREAT IN EVERY MATCH. HE LOOKED LIKE HE NEVER TIRED OF RUNNING. HIS SPEED WAS EXTRAORDINARY. HIS SHOOTING WAS REALLY STRONG AND HE HAD A GREAT DRIBBLING TECHNIC. BEHIND HIS MODEST FIGURE OUTSIDE THE FIELD HE WAS A PLAYER WHO AMAZED WITH HIS ACTIONS ON THE FIELD.
ROBERTO BAGGIO WAS A FANTASISTA WHO IS MUCH LOVED IN ITALY. EVEN IF HIS CAREER WAS OFTEN DISTURBED BY KNEE INJURIES, HIS CAREER DIDNT FADE OUT. WHEN HE'S ON THE FIELD HE WAS LIKE AN ARTIST WITH HIS IMAGINATION THROUGH HIS ACTIONS. HE HAD THE COMPLETE ABILITY AS A FOOTBALLER.
RONALDO MADE EVERY MATCH LIKE A PARTY. WHEN A BALL WAS AT HIS FOOT WE ALWAYS FELT ENTERTAINED. HE HAD A GREAT ABILITY TO DRIBBLE AND WAS A THREAT FOR EVERY GOALKEEPER. WITH ALL HIS ACTION ON THE FIELD, NO WONDER HE WAS CALLED 'EL FENOMENO' .
HE MIGHT NOT BE AS GREAT AS MESSI OR MARADONA AND BE A PLAYER WHO SAW FOOTBALL AS A JOB. HOWEVER BEHIND ALL THAT HE WAS A GREAT FORWARD. A STRONG SHOT, AN INSTINCT FOR SCORING GOALS. HE WAS A NIGHTMARE FOR EVERY OPPONENT IN THE PENALTY AREA. HE WAS THE GREATEST FORWARD WHO'S EVER PLAYED IN SERIE A AND THE ARGENTINA NATIONAL TEAM.
LARMA WAS ONE OF THE MOST INTRIGUING GOALKEEPERS IVE EVER SEEN. WITH CAT-LIKE REFLEXES THAT PRODUCED SOME OF THE MOST UN-SAVABLE SAVES, HE HAD TO BE ONE OF THE GREATEST. LAMA ALSO HAD THE ABILITY TO READ IN-SWINGING AND OUT-SWINGING CROSSES.
TO BE AN ATTACKING FULL-BACK, YOU NEED STRENGTH, PACE, ENDURANCE AND ABILITY TO READ THE GAME. ROBERTO CARLOS GOT ALL OF THE ABOVE AND MORE. HIS CROSSES WERE 'WHIPS' INSIDE OF HIS FOOT AND 'ZINGS' OUTSIDE OF HIS FOOT. OH, AND THE STUNNING GOALS WITH POWER, PACE AND AIR-DEFYING CURLERS. PEOPLE WOULD ARGUE MARCELO HAS BETTER QUALITY BUT I WOULD HAVE TO GO WITH RC AS HE WAS ONE OF MY CHILD.
ALESSANDRO NESTA WAS A SOLID ALL-AROUND DEFENDER. FOR A LITTLE WHILE HE WAS PLAYING FULL-BACK AND DID SHOW HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SETTING UP THE ATTACKS FROM THE FLANKS. NESTA WAS A TYPE OF CENTRAL DEFENDER THAT EVERY TEAM WANTED AS HE WAS RELIABLE WITH HIS TIMELY TACKLES BUT ALSO EXTREMELY ORGANIZED. BEFORE FANTASY FOOTBALL DAYS, NESTA HAD TO BE MY FIRST PURCHASE IN CHAMPIONSHIP MANAGER BACK IN THE EARLY 2000S.
IF I HAD NESTA, I ALSO NEEDED TO INCLUDE CANNAVARO. THIS GUY WAS A TOP TOP CAPTAIN FOR VARIOUS CLUBS AND OF COURSE FOR THE WORLD CUP WINNING TEAM OF 2006. HIS ABILITY TO READ PLAYS IS SECOND TO NONE. AT ONLY 175 CM, HE WAS ABLE TO LEAP AND WIN HEADERS OVER TALL STRIKERS. DID WE MENTION THAT HE WAS ONLY THE THIRD DEFENDER TO HAVE WON THE BALLON D'OR?
I CAN'T THINK OF A BETTER DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDER THAN MAKELELE, OTHER THAN KANTE. IF YOU NEED YOUR MIDFIELDERS AND FULL-BACKS TO GO ON A FULL ATTACK, YOU NEED CLAUDE ON YOUR TEAM. IF YOUR OPPONENT IS 'PARKING THE BUS' YOU ALSO NEED CLAUDE ON YOUR TEAM TO HELP DRILL THE DEFENSIVE LINE WITH HIS PIN-POINT CHANNEL PASSES. CAN'T HAVE THIS GREATEST LINEUP WITHOUT CLAUDE.
EVERY TEAM NEEDS A BOX TO BOX MIDFIELDER AND STEVEN GERRARD TOPS IT. NO BIAS HERE BUT STEVIE G IS DEFINITELY THE MOST COMPLETE MIDFIELDER, A TEAM PLAYER AND A GREAT LEADER. A TRUE DEFINITION OF AN ENGLISH PLAYER AND THEN SOME. DO YOU REMEMBER HIS GOALS VERSUS MAN UNITED AND VARIOUS MERSEYSIDE DERBIES?
ONE OF THE LEGENDS THAT HAD CREATED HIS OWN GAME. RONALDINHO MADE BRAZILIAN 'GINGA' HIS VERY OWN. THE SKILLS, THE MOVES HE CREATED THEM AND RECREATED THEM ON THE PITCH TIME AND TIME AGAIN. LET'S NOT FORGET HIS ABILITY TO CHANGE THE GAME BY HIMSELF. CAN YOU IMAGINE THE STRONG BARCA TEAM WITHOUT RONALDINHO?
ZIDANE'S FLAIR AND SILKY SMOOTH DRIBBLES BEFORE DECISIVE PASSES INTO SPACE MADE IT FUN TO WATCH. I CHOSE ZIDANE OVER INIESTA ONLY BECAUSE HE WAS A KEY PLAYER IN AN ALREADY STACKED GALATICOS WITH THE LIKES OF RONALDO, FIGO, BECKS, RAUL. ZIDANE'S STYLE OF PLAY IS A CONSTANT REMINDER OF HOW THIS IS CALLED 'THE BEAUTIFUL GAME'. ZIDANE'S FINEST MOMENT IN HIS PLAYING WOULD HAVE TO BE FRANCE 98 AND ITS FINAL.
EVERYONE KNOWS THIS GUY. HE HAS EVERYTHING IN HIS GAME. MESSI CAN CREATE GOALS OUT OF NOTHING. HOW MANY MATCH WINNING GOALS DOES HE HAVE ON RECORD? SIMPLY THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD.
RONALDO 'O FENOMENO'.
RONALDO HAD EVERYTHING... FLAIR, SKILLS, TECHNIQUES AND GOALS. HIS ABILITY TO TAKE PLAYERS ON ESPECIALLY WHEN PLAYING IN SERIE A WITH INTER WHERE OPPONENTS WERE TOP CLASS DEFENDERS, UNREAL. WHAT MOST PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE ABOUT RONALDO IS THAT HE WAS A HUMBLE TEAM PLAYER WHICH ALLOWED HIM TO INVOLVE HIS TEAMMATES IN THE ATTACK WHEN HE WAS PROPERLY MARKED AND DOUBLED UP.
I LEFT OUT THIERRY HENRY FOR ROBBIE FOWLER. YES, I TRIED TO AVOID ANY BIAS BUT ROBBIE AT HIS PRIME AS A STRIKER WAS UNPLAYABLE. NOT TO COMPARE HIM TO HENRY BUT I HAD TO PICK FOWLER FOR HIS INSTINCTS AS OPPOSED TO DOMINANCE ANDTROPHIES. HE WAS CARRYING A LIVERPOOL TEAM IN THE EARLY 90S WITH SHEAR NUMBER OF GOALS. 71 GOALS IN 3 SEASONS.
IVE NEVER, BEFORE OR SINCE, SEEN A KEEPER WHO I FELT SO CERTAIN WAS A FAVOURITE IN ONE ON ONE SITUATIONS. THE GREAT DANE WAS CERTAINLY THAT AND HIS COMMAND OF THE DEFENCE WITH THAT FAMOUS BARK MADE HIM A MUST HAVE BETWEEN THE STICKS.
QUITE SIMPLY, MALDINI IS THE MOST NATURALLY GIFTED DEFENDER I HAVE EVER SEEN. HE COULD TACKLE MORE CLEANLY THAN ANY OTHER FOOTBALLER IN HISTORY AND HAD THE BALL DISTRIBUTION SKILLS TO ENSURE HE COULD DO SOMETHING WORTHWHILE EVERYTIME HE WON BACK POSSESSION.
BARESI WAS THE BEATING HEART OF THE 1980S MILAN DEFENCE AND AS SUCH, OF THE TEAM. HE CARRIED ON THE TRADITION OF GREAT ITALIAN DEFENCE WITH A CONTRADICTORY MIX OF GRACE AND BITE AND THERE WAS NO OTHER CHOICE FOR THE CENTREOF MY DEFENCE.
PERHAPS NOT WELL KNOWN TO THOSE WHO ARE NOT WELL VERSED IN SCOTTISH FOOTBALL HISTORY, TOMMY GEMMELL WAS THE ULTIMATE FULL BACK. THE ROBERTO CARLOS OR CAFU OF HIS DAY, HE WAS ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE AS MUCH IN ATTACK AS IN DEFENCE. MODERN FULL BACKS OFTEN DRIVE THE SWITCH IN PLAY FROM DEFENCE TO ATTACK. TOMMY WAS DOING IT 50 YEARS BEFORE IT WAS EVEN A CONCEPT.
HE'S OFTEN DESCRIBED AS THE MOST INFLUENTIAL INDIVIDUAL IN THE HISTORY OF FOOTBALL AND IT'S EASY TO SEE WHY. CRUYFFPOSSESSED DAZZLING SKILL AND WAS THE LYNCH PIN OF THE GREAT AJAX, BARCELONA AND NETHERLANDS TEAMS OF THE 1970S AND 80S. HIS IMPACT WAS NO LESS FELT AFTER HIS PLAYING DAYS, WHERE HE CONTINUED TO EVOLVE THE TOTAL FOOTBALL PHILOSOPHY.
HE'S PERHAPS THE LEAST 'FLASHY' PLAYER IN THIS TEAM BUT HE'S NO LESS IMPORTANT. INIESTA HAS EVERYTHING REQUIRED OF A MODERN FOOTBALLER. HE HAS UNRIVALLED VISION ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD, ONE WHICH MADE HIM A PIVOTAL PART OF THE TIKI TAKA FOOTBALL OF THE GREAT BARCELONA SIDE OF THE LATE NOUGHTIES AND EARLY 2010S.
I DON'T THINK THERE IS A MORE GRACEFUL PLAYER IN THIS 11. ZIZOU HAD AN ALMOST BALLETIC POISE WHEN CONTROLLING ANDRUNNING WITH THE BALL, AS WELL AS THE BEST FIRST TOUCH OF ANY PLAYER I'VE EVER WITNESSED.
LITTLE JINKY WAS INCREDIBLE. PLAYERS ARE OFTEN DESCRIBED AS APPEARING TO HAVE THE BALL GLUED TO THEIR FEET AND THIS WAS NO MORE SO THE CASE THAN WITH JOHNSTONE. HE WAS A TEAMMATE OF GEMMELL IN THE EUROPEAN CUP WINNING TEAM OF THE 1960S.
RONALDO WAS PERHAPS THE MOST COMPLETE STRIKER I HAVE EVER SEEN. PACE, POWER AND UNRIVALLED FINISHING ABILITY MEANT THAT SCORING CAME EASY TO HIM AT A STRING OF TOP EUROPEAN CUPS. WHEN MOST OF THE WORLD AGREES HIS STATUS AS THE GREATEST NUMBER 9 IN BRAZIL'S HISTORY, IT'S A GIVEN THAT MAKES HIM ONE OF THE GREATEST NUMBER 9S IN HISTORY.
I CAN ONLY DESCRIBE THE ABILITY TO WATCH MESSI'S ENTIRE PLAYING CAREER AS A PRIVILEGE. IT'S NOT OFTEN YOU FEEL LUCKY TO BE ALIVE TO WITNESS THE GREATNESS FOOTBALLER PLAYING IN FRONT OF YOU, IN THE CASE OF MESSI, THAT'S UNDOUBTEDLY THE CASE FOR ME. I'LL ALWAYS BE ABLE TO SAY I SAW MESSI PLAY. AND THAT IS NOTHING SHORT OF AN HONOUR.
MY FINAL PLACE WAS RESERVED FOR THE ONE PLAYER WHO MADE ME FALL IN LOVE WITH FOOTBALL IN THE FIRST PLACE. I ABSOLUTELY COULD NAME OTHER PLAYERS WITH MORE ABILITY OR TALENT, BUT FEW OF THEM MADE ME FEEL ABOUT FOOTBALL THE WAY BATIGOL DID. HE WAS THE ULTIMATE STRIKER. LIKE A SUPERHERO OR SOMETHING OUT OF A VIDEO GAME, HE SEEMED ABLE TO BLAST THE BALL IN FROM ANYWHERE.
GREAT PLAYER, GREAT GUY.
THE VERY BEST.
WILL WIN AT ALL COSTS.
ICON OF THE GAME.
MY FAVOURITE EVER PLAYER.
THE ULTIMATE TEAM PLAYER.
EXPLOSIVE AND DEADLY.
LIVED THE DREAM.
AS A FORMER GOALKEEPER MYSELF, I GREW UP WATCHING BUFFON. HE IS MY IDOL, ASWELL AS A BEAUTIFUL MAN!
ONE OF THE FIRST ATTACKING FULLBACKS I REMEMBER. HE WAS AS GOOD GOING FORWARD AS HE WAS DEFENDING.
IF IT WASN'T FOR HIS INJURYS LEDLEY COULD HAVE PLAYED FOR ANY CLUB IN THE WORLD. A DEFENDER THAT LOVED TO DEFEND.
POWER, PACE AND WHEN HE HIT A BALL IT STAYED HIT!
A FOOTBALL GENUIS! HE WAS SO FAR AHEAD OF HIS TIME. HAD THE TOUCH AND VISION OF A GOD!
ALWAYS SEEMED TO BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME. HIS PERFECTLY TIMED RUNS INTO THE OPPOSITION BOX, GOT HIM SO MANY GOALS.
AS A SPURS FAN HOW COULD I NOT PUT GAZZA IN MY TEAM. HIS UNPREDICABILITY MADE HIM UNPLAYABLE. OH AND THAT FREEKICK AGAINST ARSENAL IN THE FA CUP SEMI FINAL!
I LOVED BATISTUTA'S 'SHOOT ON SIGHT' POLICY! GIVE HIM HALF A YARD AND HE WOULD SHOOT KNOW MATTER WHERE HE WAS ON THE PITCH.
POWER, PACE AND COULD FINISH!
FOR ME THE GREATEST FOOTBALLER IN MY LIFETIME. HE'S GOT EVERYTHING!
MY GO TO GOALKEEPER IN MY EARLY FANTASY CAREER, BACK IN THE NEWSPAPER DAYS IN 2000.
A POPULAR FOOTBALL STICKER CHOICE FROM MY CHILDHOOD' ENGLAND AND UNITED'S BEST EVER RIGHT BACK.
GAVE EVERYTHING FOR CLUB AND COUNTRY IN THE 90S, HAD HIM IN MY SAINSBURY'S FIFA 98 ENGLAND COLLECTIBLE COINS.
THE STANDOUT PLAYER IN A RELEGATED HULL CITY SQUAD, WHEN I HAD A SEASON TICKET IN THE 16/17 SEASON.
THE BEST ATTACKING FULL BACK IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE, ACROSS THE SEASONS IVE BEEN PLAYING FPL.
MY FIRST FOOTBALLING LOVE, FROM THE GUTTER OF FIFA 98 TO THE HIGHS OF ENGLAND CAPTAIN INTO THE 00'S
AN FPL LEGEND AFTER JUST ONE SEASON, ACCUMULATING THE HIGHEST POINTS TOTAL IN FPL HISTORY.
THE MYTH AND LEGEND OF MY CHILDHOOD. PROVIDING THE GOALS IN THE FIRST ENGLAND TOURNAMENT I REMEMBER, EURO 96.
THE DEBATE RAGES ON OF GOAT STATUS, BUT IT'S THE YOUNG RONALDO WHO'S ALWAYS BEEN IN MY HEART.
MY FAVOURITE PLAYER FROM AN FPL PERSPECTIVE, HE'S HAD MY CAPTAIN ARMBAND MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE AND PROVIDED THE MOST EXPLOSIVE FINISH TO A PREMIER LEAGUE SEASON EVER.
OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER.
THE BEST EVER SUPER SUB, I ALSO REPRESENTED HIM IN CHILDHOOD GAMES, AS OLE SOUNDS QUITE LIKE HOLLY.
EDWIN VAN DER SAR.
SOLID DEFENDING AND GOALS TO BOOT.
GOALS,ASSITS AND CLEAN SHEETS.
FRANK LAMPARD AND STEVEN GERRARD'

KOLO KOLO KOLO KOLO KOLO KOLO KOLO TOURE.
WHEN ARSENAL GOT TO THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL IN 2006 FLAMINI PLAYED MULTIPLE GAMES AT LEFT BACK AND EXCELLED. PLUS ITS MY TEAM SO SHUT UP!
GETS PEOPLE OFF THEIR SEATS, GETS A ROUND IN, MY MINI LEAGUE RIVAL FOR FANTASY FOOTBALL...... ALL GOOD!
WITH THIS TEAM NEEDING TIME TO GEL I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUNNY TO PUT ROY IN SIMPLY TO WATCH AS HE GETS INCREASINGLY PISSED OFF WITH THE TOURE SONG IN TRAINING.
YAYA YAYA YAYA YAYA YAYA YAYA YAYA TOURE.
IF YOU KNOW, YOU KNOW.
UNDER APPRECIATED IN HIS TIME AND GREATEST STRIKER OF A GENERATION.
THE DENNIS BERGKAMP OF MY HOMETOWN CLUB LARNE FC.
THE NICEST GUY IN FOOTBALL AND A WORLD CLASS KEEPER. THE ONLY WAY TO START, WITH ABIT OF STYLE.
THOSE FREE KICKS AND THIGHS, NEXT!
HE CHANGED THE POSITION OF RIGHT BACK. FROM MINUTE ONE TO NINETY HE WAS FLYING UP AND DOWN THE WING.
WHAT A LEADER' HE MADE BEING A DEFENDER COOL. CLASS BARNET.
WHY HAVE JUST ONE TOP ITALIAN DEFENDER WHEN YOU CAN HAVE TWO! PART OF ONE OF MY FAVOURITE EVER TEAMS, THE NINETIES PARMA TEAM. IF YOU SOMEHOW GET PAST MALDINI' YOU WONT BE GETTING PAST FABIO NEXT!
THE COMPLETE MIDFIELDER. HE SEEMED IN TOTAL CONTROL AT ALL TIMES AND NEVER SEEMED TO EVER LOSE THE BALL!
IF YOU CAN THROW UP JUST BEFORE TAKING A PENALTY AND STILL SCORE YOU KNOW YOUR DECENT!
A WIZARD ON THE BALL. EVERYTIME I WATCH HIM PLAY I MUST GO OHHHH! ABOUT TEN TIMES A GAME.
THE HEARTBEAT FROM THE GREATEST EVER CLUB AND INTERNATIONAL TEAMS I HAVE SEEN. A TIKI TAKA GOD.
THAT IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME!
I USED TO GO OUT OF MY WAY TO WATCH ARSENAL JUST FOR HENRY. UNSTOPPABLE AT TIMES' JUST ASK JAMIE CARRAGHER AND THE SPURS DEFENCE. I COULD WATCH HENRY OPENING UP TO CURL ONE IN THE TOP CORNER ALL DAY.
THE BRAZILIAN ONE. ELECTRIC PACE AND THE MOST CLINICAL FINISHER. REMEMBER THAT AMAZING MOMENT WHEN UNTIED FANS WERE CHANTING 'FERGIE SIGN HIM UP' AFTER HE HAD JUST SCORED A HAT TRICK!
