    Le Tissier was immense.

    James Beattie kind of reminds me of him a little bit. But not enough, unfortunately.
    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.

    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?:p:

    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.
    Good point, you can only say that about players who played together at club level e.g Keane and Scholes.

    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.
    I think any team that deliberately employs a five man midfield at home (where they have a superb record) to nullify the threat of John O'Shea and Darren Fletcher deserves to be given the title of best attacking team the world has ever seen.

    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.

    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 :|

    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

    Edit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7ORP...%20euro%202004
    The comments below show that there is support for Meier's decision.
    Terry's arm preventing the keeper from jumping is clear.
    Never, ever a foul. Terry is clearly jumping for the ball using his arms which is what any player does. Ricardo moves into Terry and he is sandwiched.

    Schmiechel

    G. Neville Stam Adams Irwin

    Beckham R.Keane Vieira Giggs

    Shearer Henry


    If your team doesn't look like that, it's wrong.
    Vieira for Keane imo
    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).
    As I said, mentality as much as anything and the attacking display we bring when we perform.
