Yes I got the idea from this thread http://xtratime.org/forum/showthread.php?t=242164

It seems like many of the in the list made it as top stars, even though they weren't high up in the list, such as Kaka who probably should be first given that he won a Ballon D'or.

Anyways, how about the users post the names of the footballers who they believe are the current top young players, no need to rank them now. We'll first gather up all the names and we'll then make a poll to determine the top 100.

Should be interesting to look at the list 5 years from now to see how well our judgement.

Ofcourse, we should put an age limit. Players who are under the age of 21 should only be mentioned. (i.e 21 year old players are ineligible).

Are you guys up for it? :D

Ball-ache really needs to be hyphenated. I found myself thinking for a good while what the hell a ballache (pronounced ba-lash) was.

Or maybe I'm just a bit thick. :err:
