If FI was 100 years old who would be GOAT?
Just a bit off topic but if FI had been going for a century who do you all think would be GOAT, Rooney was a beast in it's opening years, i would imagine the likes of David Beckham or George Best would be ridiculous for MB and PB, maybe a £18 player in todays prices.
Fancy Pele might have been a good shout.
Gazza would have got a bit of MB
Tikka Mo Salah
Hurst would win media buzz every day since the 1966 cup final. There will then be a spell for Maradonna, for the hand of God then be Hurst again forever. Apart from if England beat Panama 6-1 in the World Cup, then back to Hurst when they realise it was only Panama.
@Tikka-Mo-Salah Scottish by any chance? :)
Probably C Ronaldo as it would have covered his entire career to date , Im in the Messi camp when it comes to the greatest player of all time but for this platform it would probably be C Ronaldo, with Beckham not far behind
Beckham, Gazza, Cantona and a record ratio of negative MB for Joey Barton.
Guessing Diego Maradona would hit the highest peak. Ridiculously good player with the off-the-pitch antics for media.
Messi isn't the best player of all time. He isn't the best Argentina player of all time and its not close.
Beckham. Arguably the first (and only) English footballer who is also a genuine A list celebrity around the world.
@Gasdean David Beckham
I would like to say Maradona but his rocky MB ride might have tarnished him!!
As for Beckham, golden boy of English football would have IPO'd at £2+ and soon shot up scoring wondergoals as a kid at United... a big money move to Real Madrid too would have kept his value high!!!
Special shout outs to Zidane and 'the original' Ronaldo who went from prospect at PSV to Barca, to Inter, to Real, whilst topping PB scoring goals after goals and two world cup finals in the process!!! Surely a £20 player!!!!
I think George Best would have cleaned up both going on what I have read and seen clips of, second Gazza! 3rd Beckham would be more MB though.
I would like to know what Bobby Charlton's PB scores would have been as an attacking midfielder, think Alan Hansen would be a good FI Defender
