Me and my flatmates were talking about old Arsenal players from back in like 2002 and this is how this thread was born. So this thread is remembering the best footballers of 2000 who are maybe retired or are lowkey now. Just name your favourite.
One of my favourite players I forgot about was Pavel Nedved. He retired in 2009 and I thought he may have fallen off the radar about towards the end? Maybe not, I just don't recall hearing much hype about him towards the end. Obviously a class, two footed player and Serie A don't really have players like him anymore imo.
