Just wanted to have a thread where some of our unbiased views about our favorite players can be posted.What are/were your player's imperfections?Technique,short fuse or even tactically inept?

Ginola- A prima dona...A player whom i regard as the most talented frenchman in the last 20 years but even had more of an abundance of being egotistical....

And come on Dagood's...other than Ronaldo's obvious one were there others?

Whatever do you mean? Only injuries prevented him from becoming the greatest of all-time :(. But coming 3rd after Pele and Maradona, ain't so bad :D:D:D

True and thats what i meant with the obvious one.A bit of irony here with a player whose climax,popularity and performance's were founded on his explosive physical ability,however the dependance on his superior physical ability got the worst of him unfortunately.

Never reckoned Pirlo as slow...at least i didn't feel it hurt his game.

zidane.
his temper was his weakness.
for the 2006 WC, lizarazu warned him. "be cool. you know that they will try to destabilize you."
unfortunally, it's what happened...
too bad. i'm sure we would be world champions right now.

I remember a local canadian tv host Craig forest(former gk) once said about Zidane that when frustration built up he never knew how to deal with it and his challenges would become rash...

Cruyff - Seemed to think at times he was bigger than the team, even though he was :D

:howler:

No you wouldn't.

Villa's deficiency is his complacency I guess, or at least just recently. He still works hard but he's wasting loads of chances.

France were performing better in extra time and could have scored a winner had Zidane stayed on the field. No one can know for certain, we can only speculate. Only thing we know is Zidane did his team no favours.

Scholes - those tackles :D
Rivaldo - Was much of an introvert. Didn't play much for the fans.

Truth remains the only goal you got was due to a fake penalty.
