We've talked a lot about this recently, and i've given my reasons before...
And the decision to make seperate threads is simply moronic. Each next one will get less and less attention, until people stop caring at all. You get it done with quick and fast, whilst people still have things fresh in their memories.
Come the World Cup, it'll all get completely pointless.
Anyway, I hope you post the compacted results in 1 thread, when it's all done and finished with:tongue:
BTW, what about a "player of may" thread?
Makelele won april I believe, so maybe we should have one for May. Not a full month, but we did play... 4 or 5 games ey? (Japan
) I admit, i'm looking for a way to honor Zidane...
One other thing to this particular poll - to me Zidane remains the dr jekyll and mr hyde of Real Madrid. It's hard not to praise someone who scores such awesome goals, and shows such skill and beauty on the field... yet I am still of the opinion Real 2000/01 with only Figo at the helm was a better TEAM. And whatever I wanna say, whatever my heart tells me, however grateful I am to Zidane... my mind tells me the clear fact - his arrival has deorganised us as a team. We have moved back a step tactically, and moved forward individually (probably the greatest assembly of individuals since... I dunno, ever?).
I can't hand this award to Zidane, because of these reasons (even though they may seem completely ridiculous and unfair, in the sense, that it's not his fault, and he's given the team everything he's had, which is obvious, and I thank him for that:star:, but... ).
Makelele wins because he's the man who has prevented us from completely falling apart as a team, something Zidane is unintentionally responsible for
Zidane comes 2nd quite clearly. 3rd goes to Solari
