    I feel like half the players on this list shouldn't really be classified as box-to-box.

    Scholes, but I could see an argument for many players.

    Don’t bring up scholes on here. Apparently he isn’t very good or something. Lol

    Pirlo most definitely was not box to box either.
    Anyways, I voted for Albertini and Falcao. Matthaus is probably the right choice but I'll never vote for a merda player.

    I voted for Matthaus, but from what I have seen/read Neeskens would be right behind him.

    Neeskens and Vieira should be considered.

    Im surprised Albertini got a mention. I mean I think he was one of the best but he had a relatively shorter than some others here.

    I haven't seen like half this list actually play, so I'll just go with Stevie G.

    Abstained for no Hendo.

    Have heard it should be Matthaus but would homer vote Neeskins.

    Also how would Sneijder be considered a B2B?

    Saw Vieira in the champions league at Highbury. He remains the best player i have watched live......any position...Buffon in my heart but Vieira was just a force.

    People should watch some Neeskens games especially for Holland in 74 and 78 and be amazed at how physical the play was, giving it and taking it, and simply how great he was and fun to watch.

    Agree that this is a wonky list ... lots of players who don't really belong. And this is 1980s Brasilian Falcao, right? Not Radomel?

    Vieira and Breitner stick out above the rest. Matthaus and Toure and Brasilian Falco are also damn good.
