Which Player Is Your Guilty Pleasure?
Used to be Kanchelskis. Now it's Owen Hargreaves as I admired him long before he went to the Mancs.

Who Do You Rate, And Everyone Thinks Your Mad?
Used to be Owen Hargreaves before people finally clocked on in the Portugal game. Nowadays... Kuyt, although it's not so much mad as 'idiot'.

Who Does Everyone Else Seem To Love, And You Just Think He's Alright?
John Terry

And Which Club Do You Admire But Don't Really Want To Admit?
Leeds United. Don't have a clue why.

Which Player Is Your Guilty Pleasure?
Andrea Pirlo. Love the way he plays the game. Accuracy over physical presence.

Who Do You Rate, And Everyone Thinks Your Mad?
Gael Clichy, although recently hes finally began to get some recognition.

Who Does Everyone Else Seem To Love, And You Just Think He's Alright?
Gareth Barry. Cant believe Liverpool might pay £18M for him?

And Which Club Do You Admire But Don't Really Want To Admit?
Fulham

Pre 2002/03 he was good, since that he's been useless (even though he had a decent season last year)

I thought I'd do this for the conference, since everyone knows that's where the real football is.

Which Player Is Your Guilty Pleasure? Daryl Clare. I refuse to acknowledge anyone at this level as skillfull or enjoyable to watch, so I'll just name the player I will grudgingly admit is damn good at this level. (I'd just like to say that Pirlo was an excellent shout here, love watching him play)

Who Do You Rate, And Everyone Thinks Your Mad? Eddie Anaclet if played on the wing rather than at right back. Adam Stansfield didn't get enough recognition but I believe he has won promotion.

Who Does Everyone Else Seem To Love, And You Just Think He's Alright? Yemi Odubade at my club. Tim Sills is not alright, he's awful. Leo Fortune-West getting paid as a professional footballer was surely fraud.

And Which Club Do You Admire But Don't Really Want To Admit? Histon.

As in how can people think you're mad for rating Aguero, he was the best striker of La Liga last season and is a huge talent.

Arteta, Benayoun, Giggs, Kanoute

Who Do You Rate, And Everyone Thinks Your Mad?
Hleb, apparently. Also liked Danny Mills back in the day who everyone seemed to hate. Martins aswell.

Who Does Everyone Else Seem To Love, And You Just Think He's Alright?
Elano, Mascherano, Terry.

And Which Club Do You Admire But Don't Really Want To Admit?
Man Utd because they're bloody good. But taking other things into account -- I think Wigan, given their limited financial power have done remarkably well to get promoted to the Championship and then Premier League and then stay there. Barcelona because they're their best team to watch.

Won the Copa America in Peru iirc. Adriano won all the plaudits in that year, but I think he captained that team. It was rather amusing because Brazil without the big names played rather well. Come 2006 with the ageing fullbacks and star names back in the squad they bombed.

Plays more centrally now, because he's lost a bit of that pace when he was Palmeiras. I'm a big fan, but the chance he had in a big league (Parma 2000ish?) he wasn't very good and was shipped back to Brazil.

One Brazilian player I always like is Renato of Sevilla.

He did indeed. He's done well at Fenerbahce, I think he was the top scorer in the Turkish league a few seasons ago (the quality of the league is questionable) and last season he did have the most assists in the Champions League. All in all, he's a beautiful player to watch imo but he blew his chance in a big league :yep:

It's quite funny how Brazil have so many good players to choose from. Some players, even though of national team standard, have no chance in hell unless they become naturalized. :laugh:
