Who is your all-time favourite football player and why?


  • My all-time favourite football player is Thierry Henry because he played for my team Arsenal and always gave his best performance, he did everything for the team. His good position sense, skills, strength, pace, shooting is the best ever. Henry will remain as the best forward in the premier league history.

    P.S. Like my post or I will beat you up. haha jokes. :D


  • @King-Noel Raul Gonzalez :D Born Madrid Sapin :D played many years for Real Madrid and Spain . my first football jersey was just his :D


  • @maloba Good player bro.


  • @King-Noel He never got the red card :D


  • Zinedine Zidane. Because he was a pure spectacle to watch, he was doing wonders with ball at his feet and he had incredible vission of the game. And what is most importan, he always performed best in the most crucial moments (1998 WC Final, 2002 CL Final, 2006 WC QF)...

    And that game, when he was 34 yo, at 2006 WC against Brazil (in which played Ronaldinho, Roberto Carlos, Lucio, Dida, Adriano, Kaka....) where he almost singlehandedly destroyed them is to this day my favourite all time individual performance in some match... what a player he was... and best thing is, he is looking to become huge manager as well already :D


  • @Majstor-Matt great football player and now a coach :D I like him too :D


  • Hard to pick only one, since this sport gave us so many memorable players.

    Ajax players that come close:
    -Heitinga
    -Bergkamp
    -Seedorf
    -Van der Sar
    -Ibrahimovic
    -Suarez
    -Chivu
    -Galasek

    Non-Ajax players that come close:
    -Sjevtsjenko
    -Adriano
    -Henry
    -Zidane
    -Ronaldinho

    All time favourite:
    Filipho Inzaghi :) Just because ugly goals are sometimes the nicest ^^


  • In my opinion, the best footballer ever is the Brazilian Ronaldo Nazario, aka 'The Phenomenon', the most talented player I have ever seen. He might have been a bit lazy, didn't like to train hard and also had bad luck with injuries... but when he was fit then he was simply unstoppable.
    This is a video of his best goals for those who still think that Messi and Cristiano are the best:


  • @DWilson Ronaldo is one of the best indeed, absolute phenomenon. I agree with you Ronaldo in his prime might have been even better than Messi and Cristiano. Difference is of course that Messi and Cristiano are on top of football already for 8 to 10 years, while Ronaldo only showed his best for 2-3 years (due to injuries and lazyness). For me that counts too, because it's hard to get the best, but even harder to remain the best for several years.

    • Before transferring to Fenerbahçe, he was the captain of the National Team, who won Copa America in 2004, defeating Argentina.
    • Fenerbahçe's league history was the most scoring foreign footballer.
    • In the second season, he became the assist king of the league.
    • Fenerbahçe became the goal king in the 100th year.
    • Fenerbahçe's league history 3000 threw the goal.
    • Fenerbahce form the same season, the league has passed 100 goals.

    I can agree with everything you said! Zidane was one of my favorites also.. And of course I have to say Jari Litmanen also, amazing player! :ok_hand_tone2:


  • Very nice topic.
    It is really HARD to choose the only one. I've been watching football for 25 years seriously and consider football of 90s and beginning of 00s to be more impassioned and heartfelt. Maybe that is why most of my heroes are from that time:

    • Jürgen Klinsmann
    • Andy Möller
    • Ronaldo (br)
    • Gabriel Batistuta
    • Alan Shearer
    • David Beckham
    • Gary Neville
    • Roberto Baggio
    • Francesco Totti
    • Pavel Nedved

    This list will never be full...

    Agree. Those are all top players and I like the fact that you included the great Totti, who is still playing at 40!
