the one and only nicolas medina
cruyff of course
Tin hat on but out of place on that list.
Ask the vast majority outside this country and he would not be on the list imo
disagree, best would score 50 plus in english football these days the way players are protected and i was in spain when best died so i know how much they rated him.
Dont know which Ronaldo you mean on your list, but i'd say both Cristiano and Fat Ronaldo are in that class.
meant cristiano, would probably have fat ronaldo in there too.
A true great wins pretty much everything. So scratch off best and add Bobby Charlton.
Of the list, Pele and Maradona are the obvious choices.
Pele the better man on the world stage, Maradona won a championship in Europe with a team that was an also ran. Maradona was a little, drug taking cheat, with a tainted record with Barcelona and Argentina, but has there ever been a stand out player like Maradona in 86? A joy to watch, but was the little fucker drugged up with something or other?
To conclude, for me, Thomas Hauser.
If Best had played for a good nation rather than Northern Ireland he would be in everyones top ten
Man United Ronaldo is definitely not in that class. Magic in England, but hasn't done it at the highest level.
Gascoigne had far more about him than Ronaldo, mad, granted, but genuinely believed he was the best player in the world, and went on the pitch like it. At the highest level, Ronaldo is anoymous; whereas Gascoigne stamped his authority on every match.
Fat Ronaldo is up there with Zidane as the best player of the last 20 years IMO.
Best wasn't going to win the world cup with northern ireland ffs
The argument is always between Maradona, Pele and Messi why hoy a few man U players in for a laugh?
Who the best players of all time?
Tricky, Dicky Malone
top scorer in the cl in 08 and has come 2nd other seasons, he was magic in england and is now being magic in spain, You don't play shite like iran in the champions league either but he has been ok for portugal.
