Le Tissier was one of the most skillful players ever to play in the Premiership. If it wasn't for Cantona he'd be in my team. He had a great volley yes, but that exemplified his brilliant technique. He also had an awesome penalty record, something like 49/50.(Original post by RobbieC)
Le Tissier was immense.
James Beattie kind of reminds me of him a little bit. But not enough, unfortunately.
Beattie is a target man with very limited technique, Le Tiss was a number 10 style player with class. Maybe your getting mixed up because they were both at Soton together?

But we also really wouldn't know who is 'best' individually either, because styles of football were different, and some players which may not have played will in the past may have suited the newer style of football, and others who were brilliant in the past might not have fit in at all, as well as the quality of the players they played against, and their styles too...
All rules for this sort of thing are arbitary

But there's no point in conversing over who would and would not have played well together. For all we know, had Tore Andre Flo and Stan Collymore played together, they could have formed the greatest strike partnership ever. But well never know who combines well and who doesn't, so we might as well just list the best players in each position.

Common sense prevails. The public backlash against mclaren and we finnaly get a manager wholl have us playing entertaining footie and wont be afraid to chop people.
Agreed. Maybe players will get a chance based on merit as opposed to reputation.

i think that is slightly biased. Maybe Arsenal were a few years ago, but now they line up with a 4-5-1, are struggling in the league and just take a look at the results of the last few KO matches.

Toulouse v. Munster in the Heiniken Cuop this year. Munster foot went out of play and the try was given, despite the video ref being called on.
It wouldnt resolve the issue completely.

Fbaregas needs to have a good game too.

Well he hasn't taken the job yet... are we getting a bit ahead of ourselves?

Fantastic One of the most dramatic few minutes of my sport-spectating career, along with Wilkinson's drop goal for the RWC 03 final and the Liverpool-Milan penalty shootout.
Could be in for another dramatic few moments in the next couple of weeks with the relegation battle :|

This is inspired a little by the premiership best XI, but thats kind of lost momentum, and hey the world cup is coming up... So lets have a group effort on this one, eh! Modern and olden days players... So I guess ill start... Feel free to debate my and other choices though. That's what its about.
GK - Kahn
LB - Carlos
CB - Beckenbauer
LM - Klinsmann
CM - Ronaldinho
CF - Maradonna
CF - Pele

The hand on the keeper's shoulder was blatent.
I'll try to find a video of it for you.
At the very least there is contention so his mistake is understandable
The comments below show that there is support for Meier's decision.
Terry's arm preventing the keeper from jumping is clear.

G. Neville Stam Adams Irwin
Beckham R.Keane Vieira Giggs
If your team doesn't look like that, it's wrong.
I thought Keane was overrated tbh, as did my brother who is a Manc supporter
Touch call between Cantona and Shearer.
Bergkamp was a class apart, have to have him

Against Boro who had a lot of injuries and played a lot of non-starters who were crud anyway? Chelsea showed their attacking potential against West Ham and Everton (replay in the FA Cup).
Against the team who finished 4th in the prem

Are we just putting forward names then because it'd be too much of a headache to select a team myself? Many of the best have been mentioned already but I'd also like to put forward:
