A one-club man is a term used to describe a football player who has played his entire professional career with only one club. In the strictest definition, one-club men are rare in football, due to the tendency of (mostly younger) players to move for financial reasons or (mostly older) players to play at a lower level (if the club is relegated, which is the norm in most countries) in order to prolong their careers. One-club men often become club captain at some point in their career.

Players (past or present) must have been at their club for a minimum of ten years in order to be included here. Loan spells at other teams disqualify players from being counted in the list.

Well, "it" failed.

Next time ask a question or say something otherwise it
just seems that you have nothing to do except copying
and pasting pages from Wikipedia.

Well 'it' has only just started so saying 'it' failed is a bit premature, look i'm not getting into one of these back and forth arguments over trivial *****, if you don't have anything constructive to say then keep your trap shut

I do;

next time, instead of just c&p, why don't you end
your post with your own opinion or simply a request
to the other members, asking them to voice their
opinions.

What you mean like 'Tell us your favourite players or opinions of these players?'
Sorry but I just don't think people are that stupid that they need to be told how to respond to a post, you obviously, on the other hand, do. :frown:

You just copied a piece of an article and posted it here,
make your posts engaging in the future. As you can see
the only answer you have received is "that's an interesting
article". Don't argue, just take in.

PeeJay....

one day, I will pay you to wum RAWK.
You really are a gem. I wish I could pinch your cheeks right now. :D


Anyway..... For me, Paolo Maldini and Ryan Giggs are a world apart.
They were among the best players in their position and surely attracted attention form other temas, but never dreamed of moving clubs.

I suppose in a few years we will be able to have a better perspective of Paul Scholes' and Gary Neville's contributions to this club.

Paul Scholes and Paolo Maldini were both lucky enough to make there respective debuts for 'Big' Clubs.

There's another factor to consider, much like Casillas and Raul.

Raul was an Atletico Madrid supporter as a kid. I'd say
that, as much as I hate him, Totti is one of the greatest.

Refused offers from Real Madrid, Juventus, AC Milan among
others and stayed in his home town, playing for the team
that he supported as a boy. And, after 17 years, what does
he have to show for it? A scudetto.

It's easy to stay at clubs like Real Madrid and United but, as
we've seen last summer *cough* Gareth Barry, it takes a lot
more dedication to stay at a smaller club, like Aston Villa.

Good shout with Totti.

Though i think the girls in Rome are prettier than in Binrmingham, so that could have been a factor as well. ;)

I've got to agree with Peejay here, Totti deserves a lot of respect too.. Stayed at Roma and refused offers from a whole host of top european clubs where he easily could have joined to be more successful in terms of winning major trophies.. Great player to watch over the years too..!
Neville, Scholes, Giggs - United Legends..!
