I have some DVDS of the French team in the 80's: France v W.Germany 82, v Portugal 84, v Brazil 86.
3 Mark Hughes
Part of the dream midfield of France in the 80s !
Platini - Giresse - Fernandez - Tigana
We were playing so well...
Good call. Cafu. Ronaldo.
(not really, but i live in newcastle and saying otherwise is still punishable by flaying)
Peter Beardsley. Fantastic footballer. And also a lovely (if slightly awkward) bloke to talk to.
1. Alan Shearer (need i say anything?)
2. Dino Zoff (greatest keeper EVER)
3. Lez Ferdinand (one of the msot commited players ever)
And a dirty dirty cheat.
doesn't need a nickname. He's THAT good.
'waddle' was a nickname, and he was just called 'Chris'?
I thought he was that skilfull, he only needed one name, like the brazillians?
he didn't have to tuck his shirt in - the ref would let him off, just because he was so skilfull.
That's what my brother told me.
My brother is evil.
Diamond Lights is better than any other footballers song. Waddle doesn't make mistakes.
Chris Waddle is best.
Andy 'bird basher' is second though?
I can't be arsed to scroll to the top.
'ken charlery'. He was right.
Dwight Marshall to Ken Charlery.
i once bought the balding wig. Cost about Â£8. Could have just used a pale balloon. grr. Every child wants to be a balding italian.
tony adams, paul merson. football was so much more fun when i was younger!
1. Gary Mac
2. Gordon Strachan
3. Lee Chapman
team of Matt le Tiss, team of Matt le Tiss.
No.1, is Matt le Tiss
No.2, is Matt le Tiss
No.3, is Matt le Tiss
you get the picture.
With an honourable mention to Micky Gynn, Gianfranco Zola and Pierre Litbarski
1. Ricky Hill. Used to play for Luton Town when they were a top flight team. Quality player he was, like a more consistent, hard working Glenn Hoddle.
2. Nigel Martyn. Should have played more for England. Great keeper.
3. Gianfranco Zola. Top class player.
paulo "i'm not a nazi, but i am a fascist" di canio?
anyway, the answer to this thread is blatently eric cantona, greatest player to have ever played, you peasants.
failing that it's Thierry Henry or Dennis Bergkamp.
On form it could also be Juan Veron, Andres D'alessandro, hernan crespo, zidane, romario, van basten, gullit.
above all, Henry. I have never seen anyone do what he does at such a pace with such grace, and just so chuffed he plays in our league, for the mo
now that's a good joke...
or get Scotty Guyett's name on that list, you scumbags.
yes yes yes!!
(second to Tony Pennock though)
my vote goes to Papa Bouba Diop or Momo Sissoko.
plus Nina Nannar (not a footballer but deserves special mention for the name)
I think a special mention goes to Fulham for signing Collins John when, just a few years before, they had John Collins in midfield
in the Netherlands an 'of' in a surname is equivalent to a hyphen.
Robbie Fowler (94-96)
Johann Cruyff (71-75)
Thierry Henry (2000-now)
Steve McManaman (94-97)
Enzo Scifo (1986 World Cup)
Eyal Berkovic (that one game for Southampton when he ripped Man Utd apart single handedly)
was indeed great !
david trezeguet, he was awesome against milan last night
Fantastic player though...
Matt Le Tissier
wifebeating buffoon who threw away the most natural footballing talent this country had seen in years.
Good goal against Scotland though.
whos the best footballer? not the best bloke. if it was that surely gary mabutt would win
and Gary Kelly both did that. Cracking chaps.
I was voting for my 'Favourite' player though, not necessarily the best. For instance, Jimmy Bullard's an absolute genius, and one of my favourite current players - but let's be honest, he's not Pele is he? :)
Careca, Zico, Hagi, Caniggia, Mancini, Dragan Stojokovic, Hartson etc.
And Hakan Sukur could neevr do it at all when not in Turkey, rememeber him at Torino?!?
laugh at Huckerby - the man should be playing left-wing for England at the World Cup
And Hakan Sukur has had some disappointing seasons - at Inter too, but I just remember seeing him score some crackers. I also have a soft spot for southern/eastern european temperemental playboys
I can't believe I forgot Rui Costa - damn!
Hakan Sukur @ Blackburn, amazing!
In fact the Croatia 96 team was sooo good.
Robert Jarni, Alen Boksic, Zvonimir (sp) Boban, Robert Procineski (sp) and more...
They could have had easier to spell names though...
not a french player !
I always had a soft spot for Jean Pierre-Papin.
dumb as a donkey...
but great !
Agreed, it's all about the Danes. Even Lars Elstrup, the bloke who was at Luton in the early 90's that went on to form his own cult
Didn't know that actually...
"In some respects, I do this to provoke people. I like experiencing people's reactions. Some people may take my message to be 'sod off' and others an offer of sex. I am very aware of people's reactions and love the fact that people recognise me as Lars Elstrup."
Ex-Denmark and Luton striker, er, Lars Elstrup explains his arrest for flashing in a Copenhagen shopping centre. As you do
"and its gonna be barnes....curls....BRILLIANTLY!"
THAT! WAS A GOAL!
it was actually
'Collymore closing in.....LIVERPOOL LEAD IN STOPPAGE TIME!!'
I remember it well
Paul "Merse" Merson and Ray "Romford Pele" Parlour. And to a lesser extent, inconsistent mid-90s Napoli midfielder Beto. Yes, i was a Napoli fan for no apparent reason.
But on actual footballing talent: Henry, Bergkamp, Maradona, Francescoli, Roberto Baggio.
