Ronaldo in 5th? Haha, do me a favour. Single handedly won a major tournament for his country. Whereas Messi the flat track bully has never really delivered on the big stage for Argentina.

As I scrolled down I was looking for The Gentle Giant. I would have put Cruyff at number 1

Any idea of the criteria?

Football supporting and views are all about opinions. Here is mine.

Any football list of goat that doesn’t put Pele at no1 is not really up to much.

Any football list of goat that has 50 of the best players and doesn’t include Duncan Edwards should be put in the bin.

Frankly it's a load of hypothetical bollox
The greatest player of his era maybe?
Currently playing maybe?
Pre Sky maybe?
Team player maybe?
I could go on
and on
and on
and on
and on

Morning Mike,

I agree entirely. Only a bit of fun of course but as in anything the criteria sets the answer. And for footballers, as with most things, it's talent allied with application. For me when it comes to God given talent Pele, Maradona, and Best are the greatest in my lifetime. Only one used his abilities to the full, perhaps not surprising that the two who didn't were dead at a younger age than I am now.
