Nobody's perfect . Although he was pretty damn close. Two of my favourite quotes from him:

When I approached the ground and moved over the bridge along which our supporters had squeezed fifty abreast in there tens of thousands to shout for us I could scarcely bear to look. I new the ghosts of the babes would still be there, and there they are still, and they will always be there as long as those who saw them still cross the bridge, young, gay, red ghosts on the green grass of Old Trafford."

"Winning isn’t everything. There should be no conceit in victory and no despair in defeat."

Sir Matt:

"I rate Duncan Edwards the most complete footballer in Britain – perhaps the World.’

He was a Colossus. Whatever was needed, he had it. He was immensely powerful. He was prodigiously gifted in the arts and crafts of the game. His temperament was perfect. His confidence was supreme and infectious. No opponent was too big or too famous for Duncan. A wing-half, he could have been a great centre-half, or a great forward striker. He would have been one of the great leaders with his sheer inspiration. If there was ever a player who could be called a one-man team, that man was Duncan Edwards. His death, as far as football is concerned, was the single biggest tragedy that has happened to England and Manchester United. He was then, and has always remained to me incomparable.

We looked at Duncan right from the start and we gave up trying to find flaws in his game. (Remember – this was Edwards when he was just 16 years old). Nothing could stop him and nothing unnerved him. The bigger the occasion the better he liked it. While other players would be pacing up and down the dressing room, rubbing their legs, doing exercises, and looking for a way to pass time, Duncan was always very calm. He was a good type of lad too. Duncan didn’t want to know about the high life. He just wanted to go home or to his digs. He just lived for the game of football.
"

Sir Bobby Charlton:

"I find that I think about Duncan a lot. I have seen all the players who in their time have been labelled the best in the world – Puskas, Di Stefano, Gento, Didi. John Charles and all the rest – and not one of them have been as good as Big Duncan. There was no other player in the world like him then, and there has been nobody to equal him since. The man was incomparable.

Sometimes I fear that there is a danger that people will think that we who knew him, and saw him in action, boost him because he is dead. Sentiment can throw a man’s judgement out of perspective. Yet it is not the case with him. Whatever the praise one likes to heap on Duncan is no more than he deserved. He was out on his own at left-half and a First Division player in every other position. There was no one else to start with him.

I am not a person to dramatize things or dispense fulsome praise. It is not in my make-up. A man is a good player or he is not. A few are great, and they deserve respect. But Duncan Edwards was the greatest. I see him in my mind’s eye and I wonder that anyone should have so much talent. He was simply the greatest of them all.
"

Sir Stanley Matthews:

"Duncan Edwards, the boy-man, made his début for Manchester United at 16 and was an England regular by 18. You could play him anywhere and he would slot into that position as if he had been playing there season after season. For all of his tender years, he was the most complete player of his time and it was a tragedy that his life was taken in the Munich disaster of 1958. When the going was rough, Duncan would be as unmoved as a rock in a raging sea, but for all of his considerable size, he possessed the most deft of skills"

Jimmy Murphy:

"Duncan was the Kohinoor Diamond among our crown jewels. Whenever I heard Muhammad Ali on television say he was the greatest, I had to smile. There was only ever one greatest, and that was Duncan Edwards. There was nothing that needed to be coached into him – even at such a young age of 16 – he simply had it all."

I heard him described as Rooney and Gerrard rolled into one. Not bits of each other's best games, but the complete package of both.

Though 11 was my usual number for my school and later the Sunday league team I played for, when I dreamed of rampaging through the midfield for United, it was always in the number 6 jersey.

The lack of Drogba makes me not care about the rest of it. Best big game player I've ever seen.

No Drogba - No legitimacy.

Edit: Ok, so it's done based on their pont system, which is incredibly unfair on African players. What trash. Samuel Eto'o - Two goals in two CL finals - NOT ON THE LIST. Because some people have been scoring in EURO and Copa America group stages, so they get more points. Pure bollocks.

Edit2: Apparently, a World Cup group stage goal is bigger than a goal in the CL final. I'm done.

No surprise Ibrahimovic and Robben aren't on that list.

Of course there are no players from City, Kiz. Your attacking players don't really start internationals and you don't get out of CL group stages so no points for you
