Continuing from yesterday's CB thread, the top 5 wingers of the noughties have to be named.

I say,

1. Figo

2. Overmars

3. Pires

4. Giggs

5. C. Ronaldo

Joaquin/Vicente would also make the cut.

Nedved was brilliant for Lazio and Juventus and of course Pires as well.

I don't know if Nedved could be counted as a winger but damn he was a good player. So irritating if you were cheering for his opposition :D

Other than that, my picks would be Giggs, Pires, Figo, Overmars and probably Ljungberg :undecide:

Arsenal, pretty good with wingers, eh.

I'm confused, are we talking about the best winger over the course of the 2000s (so far)?
Because if not, then of course guys like Ronaldo and Messi have to be included.

Couple notes:

Cristiano Ronaldo is not better than Luis Figo. I doubt he will ever be, but thats a bit of a bold statement.

Robert Pires is not a winger, but agreed he was one of the best in the World in his day.

Figo is the best winger ever. And only Ryan Giggs can come close to him in his generation. If Vicente would have stayed healthy, he would be there too.

Ronaldo at the moment is better than Figo. Figo was always one of a bunch of players extremely close to being the best in the world, he never stood out to be the man like Ronaldo has in the last couple of seasons.

Recent Ronaldo is the best wide player I think I've seen since Cruyff.
