Schmeichel
Gary Neville
Rio Ferdinand
Javier Zanetti
Roberto Carlos
Roy Keane
Gennaro Gattuso
Beckham
Zidane
Giggs
Robinho
Fair play for being the first person to actually post an XI, but Schmeichel and Zidane? WTF?

Mine would be

Barthez

Carlos - Ruddock - Campo - P Neville

Deschamps - Ince - Ginola - Barry

F Inzaghi - Dugarry

Schmeichel is a good shout though. VDS was arguably better than him.

As for Zidane, read the first page.

Agree completely on Schmeichel. A wonderful shot-stopper, a commanding presence, a world-class goalkeeper - but not what history suggests.

Many would have you think the man was unbeatable. He was capable of multiple gaffes - usually one after the other, actually - but his high points (the save at St. James' Park, the Bergkamp penalty save, his role in the Treble season) undermines that.

Kid's got such a weak argument lol. Oh well he's in denial for no apparent reason. :rofl: Never watched Scholes but claims he's overrated, I wonder what his agenda is.

Saw an article saying he was overrated because of the slip and the red card after 38 seconds. :lol:

Gerrard is, in terms of a combination of longevity and talent, the best attacking CM the PL has had, imo. Top three, for sure.

Lampard was the better attacking CM. Scored more goals, more assists and didn't even shirk his defensive duties.

Everybody knows Gerrard was better than Lampard. Would Liverpool have won anything with Lampard instead of Gerrard? Not a chance.

Did Lampard ever score a goal that wasn't deflected?

Much #salt

Did Lampard ever bottle the big occasion like Gerrard did quite a few times?

Gerrard only won 3 trophies in 14 years after that infamous treble of 2001.

Kaka. The geezer was alright for about a season or two. But then he just got worse and worse.

I don't. Lampard did.

You like Grealish. Your arguments are invalid.

Do you understand what overrated even means? It would appear that many people who have posted do not.

I did think of posting a spin off thread of underrated footballers and Kaka was one of the players I would have posted - he came just after Ronaldo and Zidane's glory years and just before the Messi/Ronaldo domination of football. Rivaldo was another one. Their compatriots like Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and the like get all the plaudits and much of it is deserved, but those two seem to have been forgotten, they rarely get mentioned or thought of when football fans discuss great players.



This is the best hattrick I think I have ever seen. The importance of winning this game as well :cool:
