It's interesting reading but I don't know why they call it greatest moments. Riots, poor world cup songs, nasty tackles, etc.

These are exactly great moments and a poor world cup song isn't even a "moment":D

For me I think that number 17 has to win it... without doubt the funnies thing that I have ever seen on a football pitch (and I've seen Iain Dowie;))

these 100 moments were supposed to be a "public poll" i doubt it very much. Who would of voted to see Gazza cry after getting a yellow? no one. Why wasnt the most famous quote there "they thinks its all over....it is now" also Beckhams free kick V Greece? it's because they didnt have the T.V rights to show the clips.

but yes it was great to see some fantastic goals from Pele. :D
