reasons as well
dennis bergkamp-coolest player under pressure ever.
One day he will die. Hopefully soon.
Probably more but I can't think right now
cos he smoked 20 a day AND he was mint on pro evo.
and I fancy him as well.
I believe he is intelligent.
Cos they were jus well good.
still is well good.if a little old and haggered
Super Ally McCoist - great goalscorer, funny guy, with great celebrations! He is God to me!
Marco Van Basten - Greatest striker of all time!
Roberto Baggio - Has got everything a footballer should have and never seemed to run, more glide!
Michel Platini - Obscenely talented, great passer and could score lots. Greatest French player of all time.
Maradona - Cos he can do things nobody else can.
on a couple of occasions as my dad did some business with him, a gentleman with sublime footballing abilities!
He was the football player i wanted to be when i was 7
"I'm looking forward to facing Desailly. I excel myself against blacks."
tut tut tut
Ed de goey
Andy Gurney (Reading FC circa Division 2-centric)
I wish it was still 1994.
who had a can of beer in his hand, dancing along on top of a car roof, and produced the best stack i've ever seen.
dribbling abilities probably influenced my style of play.
Cantona-great footballer and controversial
That will do for now.
and he elbow smashed them in the face.
Having said that, I have Cantona and Keane on my list so, carry on.
That was supposed to be in reference to Bergkamp.
I remember I had an Eric Cantona cake made for my 7th Birthday by my nan (it was essentially his shirt with the number 7 on the back).
The man scored an absolutely obscene amount of ridiculous goals and helped see United back to the top.
"You didn't have to look very long and hard at Mr Matthew Simmons of Thornton Heath to conclude that Eric Cantona's only mistake was to stop hitting him. The more we discovered about Mr Simmons, the more Cantona's assault looked like the instinctive expression of a flawless moral judgement."
missed him, good choice
That Sonny kid at Ajax who was always on Blue Peter
Ricky Otto (probably kicked a football once)
lomana tresor lua lua
best players i ever saw playing for oxford united:
there's probably moreq
Jean Pierre Papin
Shame it went tits up
He was so good.
The same with Casahragi.
if that is how you spell his name, was always a shite signing. Don't know why we bothered
He was quality at Lazio.
How did I forget EMMANUEL PANTHER?
I think I need to go shoot myself or something. Kbye.
because he will take your woman
with the Yeboah-constrictor.
there was a thead about this some time ago with a link to an ace story. It made me laugh alot.
Johan Cruyff - greatest player ever. Had a better understanding of the game as a whole than Maradona and Pele
Robbie Fowler - have never seen finishing like his (1994-97). And every type of goal.
Roberto Ayala - knows every dirty trick there is. And executes them all perfectly.
Tomas Brolin - pre-obesity.
And I am rather enjoying Javier Mascherano at the moment.
I think he swapped his 'natural goal scoring ability' for 'real estate' in about 1999.
Zola, Maldini (obvious-centric)
Andy Polston/Chuck Martini (comedy-centric)
Bontcho Guentchev/Freddie Hyatt/Paul Whitmarsh (Hendon-centric)
My favourites XI would probably almost identical, although Gary McCann as keeper, John-Simon White at right-back and I'd stick Binnsy in for Warren Ryan methinks.
should have added him to my list.
Matt Le Tissier
Marco Van Basten
I've ever seen in a Forest shirt.
Stuart Pearce - most committed, passionate footballer I've ever seen.
Gianfranco Zola - the best foreign import I've seen since the floodgates opened in the mid-90s
the great goalscorer of all time.
In my own lifetime, there have been a few:
Stuart Barlow (for the effort)
I cried when he left Rangers when I was young, loved watching him play!
Could do some amazing things follwed by some ridiculous things. Absolutely loved watching him!
This is why:
Ben Thornley's brother. Really good striker, always really great to the crowd, and really happy just to be playing. At Witton Albion now I think.
He's training a lad called Chris Senior up in that department as well.
i'm sticking to modern players. i don't feel any sort of affinity with many of the legends because they've basically been reduced to stock youtube highlights packages
berbatov - technically superb, best first touch in the premiership, incredibly intelligent on the pitch, arrogant, gesticulates wildly at the ineptitude of his british teammates
zidane - i don't feel this needs any kind of justification
maldini - as above, plus the fact that i'm probably gay for him and he never seemed to get booked
wesley sneijder - epitomises everything that english midfielders lack
yaya toure - as above, he just looks so spectacularly classy and languid. his range and choice of passing is fantastic
ayala - i don't think i've ever seen a more cynical defender. he's always been positionally superb, good in the air and a good technically too.
philip lahm - most underrated player in world football? he's genuinely two footed, great going forward and positionally intelligent.
Simon Garner - He scored goals, and lots of them.
Scott Sellars - the first genuine winger i ever saw. One of the best crossers of a ball outside of the top division when i were a lad.
Colin Hendry - The man would put his head in front of anything, even i imagine, a meteor heading for earth. And he looked like Pat Butcher.
Alan Shearer - Boring as fuck, but not a bad player.
Tugay - finest passer of a ball i have ever seen playing for my hometown team. I love him and would like to stroke his hair and tell him i love him.
Matt Le Tissier - Fat, Lazy, unambitious and one of the most outrageously gifted footballers i have ever seen.
Stoichkov - When i was young, i wanted to be able to play football like him.
Dennis Bergkamp - More an artist than a footballer - a privilige to watch him
Many others, but these will do......
Roland Nilsson - consummate professional, seemingly incapable of making a mistake; played in my position
Robbie Keane - could light up even the most shit team and make something happen, which he did at Coventry for a year, with wonderful results.
Paul Gascoigne - troubled genius, played the game with a sense of humour and also scored the best goal of all time. And then celebrated it with the best goal celebration of all time.
