Some good suggestions there, ZZ was quality and Bergkamp produced some moments of magic too.

I firmly believe that if Gazza had signed for United he would have gone on to be the undisputed best. He was a genius but sadly didn't make the most of it.

My favourite top five.

Maradona
Messi
Zidane
Pele
Best
(Schmeichel Sr)

Subs bench:- Eusebio, Bergkamp, Dalgliesh, Scholes, Ronaldo2

Ronaldo2 may have inched up the bench a bit if I could stand his personality a little more!

Jumpers and play

A class act - they score 2 - we score 4 - So many players that under the thumbsup system became better - Peter Schmeichel IMO had it all - hard act to follow

Bless him - I fully agree with you - the hangers on together with his lack of self value will remain - THAT SAID - GAZZA WAS BLOODY GOOD Bandit

Honest yet a kid at heart

Bandit My cousin's friend in Maldon Essex used to own Georgie Best's Porsche , it was a light weight air cooled and he payed £2,000 just after Georgie Best died . He sold it for £8,000 around 6 year's ago and some months later was approached by the new owner asking a few questions , but they had paid £43,000 for it . I bought my 997 around that time and am kicking myself why my cousin had not told me about it .
I don't have any more information and I'm not sure how correct what I've written but thought it's worth putting out there to see if anyone can add to this story . Cuba Bandit

My perfect strike force combo would be Kenny Dalglish with either Ronaldo or George Best.

They would have conquered everything before them had they played in the same era and together Thumb

When I lived in London I used to drink with George Best on a Saturday lunchtime in a pub that I can't remember the name of.

I wasn't into football but I did like wine. He never talked football and I never talked Photography. Birds used to come up but he wasn't interested, as we were having a chat. Someone who valued The Chat.

A softly-spoken, polite, convivial Irishman who liked chatting and by 4-oclock used to buy anyone left in the pub a drink, which I tried to stop him doing, like you would do with any of your mates who was on on a roll.

Never mentioned a Porsche, any cars, money or wealth.

A great loss.

This one was off the King's Road in Chelsea. Adding to say that it wasn't just me and him at the bar. A group of locals met there often and he was just one of them.
