    2 Nathan Ellington :shock:

    the ammount of chances he misses is amazing, he should have around 35 goals this season

    I forgot to mention the list was as result of lists made by fellow players and journalists...i made the thread in order to discuss it and i know that every list is pretty subjective. But people who say that such lists are crap (Coopz) or that there are plenty of "fossils" in the list (sheep) should know that the "jury" consisted of people who should know rather well since they watch those clubs or play against these players every week...Lets face it's not because we all think we know everything about football, that we effectively do...
    I don't see what age as to do with being a good player or not...and about the younger players: your future national team could be in that list. I wonder what you guys would say if these players would play for England and one of us foreigners should have the audacity to crticize them...Just let's see in a couple of seasons...

    Bloody'ell Richie Wellens is a tosser! He is absolutely shit and soooo over rated. He trys all fancy shit which works 5% of the time and that gets him no where. "40 yards out...OH AND HERE'S WELLENS!!!! ooh he wont want to see that again" There are much better players in blackpool's squad than him, for example Peter Clarke, he has had an amazing season.

    where's michael tonge.....? interest from premiership for him is always there but sheffield united cling on. i cant believe he hasnt even feautured in the top 50...he should realistically be in top 10 definately,get it sorted boys!
    how can i get to be a moderator?

    i'm even more outraged to see the likes of oxford players in the top 50 despite only one sheffield unied player being there. danny webber, michael tonge, steve kabba are to name but a few players who would not only hold their own in the premiership but will prove so when they carry the mighty blades there!!!
