dougie freedman? surely sean devine
with Chris Waddle.
he's got an agressive streak
but Waddle it is.
Is Shearer the only one on two clubs?
but seeing as he scored over 50 goals for Posh in our first season in the league (final club stats: 81 goals in 88 appearances), I can't argue with Terry Bly.
he never listens.
Terry: 'As you know, I scored 52 goals in a season. So shut the fuck up'
probably the most famous at the time
(i'd have been tempted to say beardsley as well)
sorry alan! x
I'd say it's either Stig Inge Bjornebye or John Arne Riise though.
Hoddle or Klinsmann.
was who popped into my head
I can actually picture my mother nodding her head at that and saying 'Oh, Hector was a cracker of a player. I'd have picked Toddy or Nishy though...'
Can't argue with Bremner for Leeds.
(By the way, if anyone wants to know, the Gresley Rovers jury (me) have picked Bob Aston).
deep down you do, come on...
I'd rather they won than lost, if I were watching them, because it does upset my dear mother so...
THE TOP 25 PLAYERS OF ALL TIME (according to 'The Greatest Ever Footballers')

Since when is Figo better than Zidane and Maradona?
irans ali daei is ranked 26!
lunacy is right.
don't really add up. No Ronald Koeman either?
you get points for being voted player of the year, which is probably why ronaldo and figo are so high
so high because he's the best player ever.
but who cares - what a guy!
excpet for john barnes obvs.
he should come back and save the boro once again... i bet he still only looks about 15 as well.
He seemed to actually like Middlesboro and I have respect for anyone who can manage that.
i am sure my dad would agree. although his favourite was Roy McFarland...
Cantona's up there though, although he never reached his full potential at Leeds.
But yeah. Bremner there too, to no surprise.
Liverpool - Ian Rush.
less than a year there as the 'best ever player'.
Cantona left little real impact at Elland road.
he's one of the best that's ever been at the club. Fair enough, it was a short period, and he hasn't left a legacy... but he was incredible.
honestly not a suprise
no surprise for me - Zola and Steve Bull.
Absolutely cannot argue with that. The things that man can do...
George Camsell? Fabrizio even?
I think Juninho is the best choice.
Can't argue with that. Although Ian Wright and Tony Adams would run him close. Maybe even Bergkamp, Charlie George or Liam Brady too
O'Leary would, but he's a cunt
Played a couple of ganes for AFC Bournemouth towards the arse end of his career. Was hard pissed throughout I believe.
fuck off, it should have been steve livingstone.
or more seriously, one of john mcdermott, clive mendonca, paul groves, john cockerill or tony ford. yeah, john mcdermott.
Stan Bowles was the obvious choice, but I personally would've gone with Rodney Marsh or Sir Les.
Or Lee Cook for giving us his signing on fee from Fulham. What a guy! But now we've got backers with money, do you reckon he wants it back?
He could have been a world beater instead of a cult figure if he hadn't been so obsessed with gambling. He once put a bet on with his boots while on his way to an England match...
cant really argue with that, although theres a few on the same sort of level i would say
easiest question ever.
So wrong. Give Drew 10 years.
and give him ten years. but for now my answer stands i reckon.
Just family bias innit.
Bale will be considered one of the best players in the world (he's definitely got the potential and the attitude).
but well stingy with his megabucks :D
robin van der laan
as well as countless others (well, andy jones) who came before my time ....
le tis? pah. Danny Wallace every time.
Dixie it is, 60 goals in one season baby. Never gonna be beaten.
I almost feel sad for the guy that he was so loyal to us :-P
2 - Ronaldo Brazil
22 - Alfredo di Stefano Argentina/Spain
Figo 4 and no Henry? I don't even care that much about football and I'm still kind of pissed off.
although you cannot argue with Henry, I still feel that the best player I ever saw at Arsenal was Dennis Bergkamp.
Had to be really, although I suppose Trevor Francis, John Robertson, Stan Collymore and Ian Storey-Moore would have run him close.
No? Thought not. I'll tell you anyway. My dad tells me the side of the 60s and 70s which was one of the top Amateur sides in Europe, never mind England had a number of players who were far better than many of their league counterparts. Indeed, of the top 10 England Amateur side International Cap holders, 7 played at one stage for Hendon including the top 3 (who won all their caps at Hendon)
Names like Bill Fisher (record appearance holder at the club), Rod Haider, John Swannell, David Hyde, Peter Slade, Roy Sleap, Jimmy Quail, Danny Lakey, Peter Deadman have all gone down in folklore.
In more recent times, we've had some real talented players play for us - Dwayne Plummer, Byron Bubb, Rob Ursell. Outstanding on the ball, but attitude is all wrong. In terms of players who have gone on to achieve the most then stand up Iain Dowie. Honourable mentions to Jermaine Darlington, Leon Constantine and Junior Lewis. In terms of the best all round player I've ever seen in a Green & White shirt - only one candidate. Not Andy Kennedy, not Geoff Pike, not Bobby Barnes, not David Speedie. Of course, its Bontcho Guentchev.
the answer is David Howells.
