Can't see that happening for a long time though. That Milan team were incredible.

Montpellier Hérault SC one match away from the Ligue 1 title. Would be great to see them win it before PSG start dominating.

their captain is supposed to be coming to Newcastle this off-season. hopefully this doesn't knock his price out of our reach.

Ruud Van Nistleroy retired overnight as well. Quality player who was one of the most natural finishers I have seen in my life. Clinical and stepped up to the plate for the big games. His spats at Arsenal will be remembered, when he missed the penalty there and the following game at Highbury we got another penalty and he had the ball on the spot before anyone else had a chance to get it, slotted it away too. Class.

I've never seen a player with a better ability to take one touch and have themselves in a position to get a shot on goal.

Wasn't he playing Malaga?

I didn't know they were cashed-up.

Edit: Came on free transfer

On 1 June 2011, Van Nistelrooy arrived at Málaga CF to sign a one-year contract with the La Liga club on a free transfer

Lists like that are pointless..... and people will never agree.

Van Nistelrooy and Henry have amazing records... but so do hundreds of other players. Look at Eusébio - 571 appearances for 585 goals. Different era though so comparisons make no sense.

^ That was an intense game.

Seeing this goal brings back memories - Rooney dinks it with the outside of his boot across goal inside the box, RVN takes it on his chest with back to goal, all while turning, and strikes it on the volley back across the keeper. Class

Barton: stubbed out a cigar in a youth player's eye, broke a guy's leg while driving pissed, various assaults on and off the field (including against teammates).
Keown: yelled at some guy.

Yep, fair comparison.

I'd like to see Joey Barton get bashed. I mean proper bashed..... I want some chav to kick the living shit out of him. Absolute scum.

Ruud was always a wanker against Arsenal. I remember watching that match and hoping someone would punch him in the head

You probably should if you're going to throw around the "top 10 of all time" line

You know in the last few years there are players that hit their wives, cheat on them, are convicted of rape, neglect their kids, abandon them, get done for drink driving or assault, possession of illicit drugs etc etc ........
Barton's a div, but he's hardly alone in this. All of them should be equally laid bare.

Yeah but Bartons a bigger **** than most. This is fact.

Getting done for drink driving or cheating on your partner or serving a suspension for having some coke is hardly as much of an issue as some of the shit Barton's got up to. You'd have to be a moron to argue with this.

Constantly says he's a changed man before fucking up again. He deserves at least 50 hits to the head.

You might buy into his rubbish but I've seen enough of him to come to conclusion that he deserves a few more punches than most players in the league.

Probably (striker/forward are pretty interchangeable to a certain extent) - only reason I didn't include him was because he's only really played two seasons in that position.

crossing out players who played before you were born. keeping in pele because maybe youve seen footage of him actually play. you wouldnt list musicians youd never heard in your list of greatest musicians of all time. why would you list a footballer youve never seen play?

Fair enough. I was gonna include a disclaimer, but either way, it's pretty well acknowledged what they've contributed to the game. It would be harder to argue why they shouldn't be on that list imo...

Yeah fair call.

The traditional number 9 isn't particularly relevant in the modern game.... imo any attacking goalscorer is a "striker" these days. Attacking CM's, CF's etc

Thats retarded dude... if you haven't heard a musician, you go and listen to their music, watch clips and research their lives and legacy.

Why can't you do the same with Football? How hard is it to speak to people that DID see them play, watch documentary's, look up clips, look at their statistics?

I saw Maradona play but I was young and didn't understand what I was seeing. He wasn't in his prime either... was the end of his career. By your definition, I'm not allowed to think Maradona was one of the greatest players of all time
