Brazilians dominated the list :D :D Rivelino was great some aged guys told me Rivelions left foot was the best. but i like Bebeto he is the man.

Ronaldo had to make the list. I didn't see Ronaldinho hmm... Rivaldo is good and still going strong and good to see them remebering Luis Figo

I thought Raul was good enough for the list.

Yeah,they all sux. Alan Shearer is the all-time top goal scorer in the Barclays English Premier League with 379 goals in 733 games for Blackburn Rovers,Southampton & Newcastle United,yet he's still an unproven goal scorer.
Alan Hansen probably is a lousy centre-back,given the fact that he has won 8 English League titiles,3 League Cups,2 FA Cups,3 European Cups & 6 FA Community Shield with his whole career with the Scousers,where he played over 620 games for them. And last but not least,Neville Southall. The record holder of most international caps for Wales,92. He ONLY played a total of 750 games for the Toffees and won 2 English League Championship titles, 2 times FA Cups winners,2 times FA Cups runners-up, European Cup-Winners Cup,English League Cup runners-up & FWA Footballer of the Year . And guys,know what? They all still sux.:)

Neville Southall played a total of 578 league games,but that's only in the league! He played a total of 750 games in all competitions for Everton. And that includes the European Cup,FA Cup & League Cup!
While with Alan Hansen, the f**kin' Scousers won 8 of the 18 English League championship titles with him,and that's alomost half of it!
I'm not trying to prove that 'Keano' shouldn't be in it. But instead, I'm trying to prove that Neville Southall,Alan Hansen & Alan Shearer should be in it. So please dun misunderstood my meaning ffs.
Also,here's Alan Shearer whole career statistics just in case u need it for reference.:)

I just think there are far better players who are not in the list who should be. Also like Sal says...some of these players are dead so I'd be interested if anybody knows the actual source.

By the way, I looked at Shearer's career stats last night, that's how I was able to correct you ;)

Yeah, i was lucky to see him clips of Rivelinho on Fifa Football Mudial (on Sky sports). He was amazing, especially some of his free-kicks.


I think Ronaldo shoulda been higher..but thats just me...
