    Eusebio (sp)

    And Haaland might get up there as a goal scorer

    There is but one criterion as in the OP , the greatest in your opinion of course, only on TD would typos and my own error over Al deflect from a simple who do you think is the greatest.

    If you pm I'll appraise your fan club

    A point of order if I may David.

    The question is: Who is the Greatest?

    The question asks for a single person, so why is the poll multi-choice?

    I think I've been rumbled by a supra squirrel grammar expert.

    If I were to ask people who is the greatest poster it would obviously be you only one choice

    If however I were to query who is the daftest person to bother posting I could add several to my own moniker doncha think?

    This is not a fist among sequels as its avers on the barking seal of our American cousins so it is possible to have two or more winners.

    For example If we were measuring intellect and SA LD and TX were to draw level at 120 for instance?

    IMO, footballers, as with all sportsmen, can only be compared to others of the same time period.

    I can't believe there is no option for Colin Gibson or Ralph Milne.

    I've gone for Best. I never saw him play, but my dad regularly did.

    He hates him as a person, but he raves about him as a footballer.

    Not sure

    Progressive improvements are compared over vast spans Bob Beaman's long jump record lasted decades. Each new Marathon champ compares to history that is how they gain not merely a Victor Ludorum or Gold medals but become an Olympic, FA or F1 holder.

    While nowhere near Buffon or Yashin Banks or C rai Utd keeper I was probably a finer keeper than Messi is ever likely to be being a foot taller in the sole position where height rather than ball skill is paramount.

    Tell me the last time you saw a stumpy goalkeeper in a footbll game, sure a goal tender in ice hockey needs no height advantage as the players don't head the puck?

    Really great players like the above, and I omitted Beckenbauer , Cruyff Puskas Ferenc, do play against the younger generation with Ronaldo and Messi almost double the age of some the fresh faces.

    Its only a bit of fun awaiting the real games

    There are so many players who are up there though.

    Dragan Stojkovic, the current Serbia manager, used to glide over the pitch. Along with Bryan Robson (and pre injuries Gascoigne), he was probably the greatest midfielder I saw.

    Zidane as well.

    There is a pretty insane stat about their goals conceded over 2 or 3 seasons together. Something like 97 games played, minus 5 goals conceded.



    I remember a real stat before the Real Ronaldo got on the scene, about Maldini, when Maldini had won 5 European cups.

    There were only 2 clubs that had won the European cup more times than Paolo Maldini. One of them was AC Milan.
