you dont have to have seen someone like pele or cruyff week in week out to judge him to be a better player, would you hold the same opinion if I said rooney was a better player than maradonna because ive seen rooney every week


ok then you put him in the top 30, name the players who you have personally seen who are above him then? if you are not including the likes of pele, cyruff etc

Rooney must be the best player ever in your opinion.

Re: Your opinion on Thierry Henry?

Cunt of a man, cunt of a player, plays for horrible clubs and a worse country. Hate the bastard, constantly breaking my heart. Years of torture as a United fan watching him tear apart the PL, beats us in the final with Barcelona (although marked out of it by the GOAT O’Shea), cheats Ireland out of the world cup in 2010 and then the fucker costs me over 600 with a last minute winner against Sunderland last season. Fuck you Thiery Henry, fall off the fucking earth already you big lipped cunt.

But yeah, good player.

Re: Your opinion on Thierry Henry?

I voted top 50. It's very hard to accurately place people on an all time list especially when you go back to the really early days. As a gooner, I obviously love the guy, but there were plenty of players of his generation who were better than him. Namely Messi, Zidane, both Ronaldos, Ronaldinho, etc. So if he doesn't make the top 5 of his generation, where does that put him all time? I don't really know, but I'd probably go either top 30 or 50. He's certainly not top 10 though.

List of best football players chosen by THOUSANDS. Henry is 8th.

Although there's no way to measure how is someone better than the other, I would rather trust the amount of votes.

there are players ranked more than once in the list. zidane 1 and 21, cruijff 7 and 34. seems legit.

Henry has done nothing to me. I have already said achievements wise he is one of the best, he has won everything he's been involved in. Premier League, World Cup, La Liga, Champions League, FA Cup, European Championship, you name it.

Yes, Messi would be shit in the Premier League, in fact I wish he stays in La Liga because I wouldn't want to tarnish the legacy he has created for himself. I mean do you reckon he could even score against the likes of Man Utd or Arsenal?

I wouldn't say "shit" obviously, but would he have the record he has or the consistent form he's in if he was playing regularly in the PL? 100% Not even close. Yes, we saw a few sparks from him against Arsenal and Utd in the CL, but, in the same amount(if not more)we also saw him in miserable performances like almost all his matches against Chelsea. And even if you put this aside, he wouldn't be able to run through defenses with the physical style of the PL like he does in Spain. There's a reason LL strikers like a Aduriz or a Hemed has almost the same scoring record of the RVP's and the Suarez's. Not taking anything away from Messi because he has a rare talent but nothing he did against the English teams gives any indicator to what he would be in the PL(You can make the argument in the negative side). And when it's not in a big stage and there's a random away game against the physical Norwich's, he's not scoring 3s like he does against the Granada's. IMO.
