Dalglish - 3 European Cups, 6 leagues, 4 league cups, fa cup. Plus a runner-up in european cup too.
Played until he was late 30's I think, spent his whole career with two big clubs.

Not many people remember Best anymore. Dalglish was around in the 80's, when Liverpool were most successful, plus that's the age of many voters.

If I weren't a United fan I probablr wouldn't of voted Best, cos I've never seen him play.

I'm not saying Best isn't the greatest - as he most probably is from stories and clips I've read/watched, but I'm just saying that not everyone will have a United bias, or the age where they could of watched Best in his prime.

Some of the other candidates:

Banks - known by every football fan in Britain. Probably the greatest English keeper (arguable of course). Plus as it's an English poll, English people will vote for players who won the world cup for them - regardless if they were actually better than others.

Same for Moore, England world-cup winning captain speaks volumes. Everyone knows him and votes for him.

Ian Rush - more people would of seen him.


Also, most of this country are ABU. Anything to get one over on MUFC.


I voted for Best by the way.

Well, I voted for Best.

I never saw Rush play, but why is he on it? You could and probably should have easily have put someone like Giggs on it instead. That may sound biased, but he was one of the best left-wingers in the World in his prime.

I don't see how Best can't win. I've read articles where Pele, Maradona and de stefano(sp?) have all said he was the best player they've ever seen.

Charlton should be up there aswell, he's the biggest English legend.

Bobby Moore shouldn't be on that list either, I know he captained England to the WC but outside of England he is barely known.

Well to be fair he was one of the best around people say. So cool and composed
on the ball and could tackle all day long. He was a Hammers legend and
the ONLY man to captain your country to a World Cup. He also had over
100 caps. This guy should definitely be on the list. I wouldnt have thought
Id need to convince an Englishman of this ever. ;)

like you said moore was a legend in this country , it is unfair to compare him to players like georgie who was the most gifted player ever to play on these shores.
moores sole aim was to stop players playing

True, I suppose a better way to put it would be Moore is an English legend, but not a world football legend like the likes of Best, Charlton etc.

Either way I still think Sir Bobby is the greates English legend of all time, both in terms of domestic and international status, plus the guy has so much class its unbelievable :)

Charlton should definitely be on that list if Ian Rush is on it. I can't
even put into words the gulf in class and status between them.
Bestie has to win it. Easily the greatest player on that list if you
just go by ability and not honours won!

I look just George Best, so even if he wasn't the best ever I'd still vote for him. Btw, if somehow Ian Rush could've won this thing, I'd never watch a match again.
