    Great topic. Hmmm:

    - Pelé.
    - Maradona.
    - Van Basten.
    - Müller.
    - Cruyff.
    - Ronaldo.
    - Di Stéfano.
    - Platini.
    - Batistuta.
    - Raúl.

    And there's a reason why I put Raúl in, before anyone asks. And this reason is that he is the top scorer in Champions League / European Cup history, with 49 goals. I think that the top European Cup scorer, plus top active scorer in La Liga and top Spanish National Team scorer belongs in that list.

    Pele
    Maradona
    Van Basten (scored my fave goal of all time against USSR in Euro 88 final.
    Di Stefano
    Cruyff
    Eusebio
    Muller
    Ian Rush (clinical finishing)
    Zico
    Dixie Dean (different era but 60 goals are 60 goals!)

    Agree with Gedtillo for most choices - a few are personal preference but thats what makes footy great isn't it?

    I think threadstarter should change the topic to Top 10 Forwards of All Time.Looking at that 3 list posted above,every one of them includes Johann Cruyff.I dont think he operates as a striker? Hes is the classic winger.An example of great strikers are Van Basten & Ronaldo,always up there,waiting for chances.A Striker is someone whom scored thru chances created by the Forward,eg Kluivert and Bergkamp.Just my two cents...Cheers~

    I thought that, but as I was the first to answer I preferred to put in other forwards. If it was JUST about strikers:

    - Ronaldo.
    - Müller.
    - Van Basten.
    - Batistuta.
    - Pelé.
    - Puskas.
    - Eusebio.
    - Raúl.
    - Kempes.
    - Kopa.

    I think he was a striker in many matches he played, but his main position was as midfielder, it's difficult to cataloguing; for example I never would consider Maradona as a striker.
    But, if is only forwards of area:

    - Gabriel Batistuta (Argentina)
    - Marco Van Basten (Netherlands)
    - Eusebio (Portugal)
    - Ronaldo (Brazil)
    - Pelé (Brazil)
    - Ferenc Puskas (Hungary)
    - Romario (Brazil)
    - Gerd Müller (Germany)
    - Leónidas (Brazil)
    - Sandor Kocsis (Hungary)

    the greatest striker actually is thierry henry and not ronaldo
    ronaldo is fat and not a great striker
    and especially he is not dignified to be enumerated with other players like maradonna, müller and pele
