    You're 5 greatest football (soccer) players of all time and ultimate team

    I'm always interested to see who people consider to be the best.

    Mine is:
    • George Best
    • Garrincha
    • Ronaldo (Fenomono)
    • Messi
    • Xavi
    My ultimate team is
    Buffon
    Baresi Beckenbauer Maldini
    Gullit
    Xavi Norman Whiteside
    Messi
    Best Ronaldo Garrincha

    Paolo Maldini
    Schmeichel
    Roy Keane

    No particular order, but the greatest player is Zidane.

    If you've not seen that film of him, try and watch it.

    It's great seeing Schmeichel being referenced so much. Not very often GK's get the recognition they deserve. He truly was a legend among keepers.

    I genuinely don't get the Zidane hype, probably not even in my top 20. Technically he was absolutely outstanding to be fair but i've never considered him to be one of the greatest

    On his wrong foot.



    Not many players could do this on their strongest foot.

    Besides, his last act on a football field was to nut some fella in the chest.

    To be fair i did say he was technically astounding, lubomir moravcik was more two footed than zidane, it doesnt make him the best player ever

    Come on guys. Messi isn't in the top 5 yet. Playing at a club that is full of stars, play him at International level, he goes missing.

    Anyway, all subjective I guess.

    Top 5.

    1. Pele
    2. Zidane
    3. Maradona
    4. Cruyff
    5. Best
    (6) Dalglish

    An all star team is friggin hard.

    So am just going to go based on the last 20 years.



    ----------------------Buffon-------------------
    Cannavaro------------Stam---------------A.Cole
    Figo--------Zidane----------Cantona-----Nedved
    --------------------Bergkamp-------------------
    --------------Henry----------Del Piero----------

    Was a toss up between Del Piero and Shevchenko (AC Milan days)

    Little short on defence I know, but I am of the opinion that if you have possession players who hold the ball, defending wont be an issue

    I think Kopkiwi has the best post here to be honest. I agreed with him fully and unbiased.. I mean he did put in Best where as Tut just put United players... and Shibby with Liverpool.

    How can Best NOT be rated amongst the best (see what I did there)? Even as a United hating Liverpool supporter I can appreciate pure class when I see it. Unless they play for Everton (apart from Southall, he was fantastic)

    I don't consider myself qualified to critique Best as I haven't seen much of him. From the little I saw I liked though.

    And hey, I only put 2 Liverpool players not 5 haha. And I can make a case for both of them. Zidane himself hailed Gerrard as the best in the world. And Dalglish was the best player in the best Liverpool side of all time, which is often hailed as the best team of all time. Obviously you can challenge that, but it's my opinion, not yours so, as Kenny himself would say, piss off Wenger .

    It's ok, but it's probably not his highlight moment and certainly not something better than what Zidane did or any other top player for that matter.
