Who do you think are the 10 best ever defenders in football history?Where in the top 10 ranking would you place great defenders like Beckenbauer, Baresi, Maldini and Moore? Does Nesta belong to the top 10 too? Discuss! :)

sorry to be a bore, but i think maybe 1/5 of the people who post here would be able to do anything other than take someone elses word for it on this one. if you ask for a top 10 then it will just be a few of the most famous ones plus about 6-7 fillers that they've probably never even seen, and non-Europeans will be ignored altogether.

i've certainly got no chance here, so i'll just sit back and watch :shades:

i'd think that Hierro mostly didn't even play as a defender half the time and that Dunga was actually a midfielder. ;)

plus another couple of names you've mentioned wouldn't even be close to the top 10 in the last 15 years :stuckup: :tongue:
