Good post.The problem with making a thread like this is that not only is it bloody difficult but younger fans, such as myself, never got to see Best, Law, Edwards, Robson or Charlton play, and we only have a limited amount of clips to see what they were like. I was too young really to actually appreciate Cantona, although I did see him play in some games.
For me, I grew up watching Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes - they've been the best for me. Both are outstanding footballers with amazing skill and longevity; two of the best players ever in the premier league. I don't know if Best was better than Giggs and Charlton was better than Scholes though, cos I'm too young to have seen either in their pomp.
That is a bit of an extreme to say that no one knew his name. Plenty have known his name, but with the tragedy cutting his career short, he sadly can't be mentioned, in my humble opinion.Edwards [who has become something of a cult figure
since Febuary '08 - before that nobody knew his name]
