    Ginola doesn't belong.

    Pavel Nedved for me. I rank him above Ronaldo, because he was much better in defense. He had no weakness in his game beside header. Anyway i see Ronaldo more as a deep-lying forward.

    Nor does Ronaldo really.

    Also, it's spelled Rivellino, not Rivelinho: Rivellino - Wikipedia

    Ronaldo played LW at United in a 4-4-2, and LW in a 4-3-3 at Madrid beside Benezema.

    How is he not a LW?

    I think these are interesting debates, but it’s quite hard to do when a good chunk of the voting pool has basically never seen some of these players.

    Heck, most Americans don’t remember Ryan Giggs for any of his heyday.

    I would say these types of debates are much better if you limit some of the scope to the last decade or two (though this one is better in that sense).

    Ronaldo I could understand, but Giggs over Ronaldinho?

    Nope. Heck Stoichkov was better. Blokhine, Rivelino. Heck, Neymar is better than Giggs, who was NEVER a top 5 player in his era.

    He's played at striker for so long that one hardly remembers those days. In his last seasons at United he was rarely seen at left wing anymore, but more upfront.

    We all have our opinions .The only hardware that matters to me is 13 Premier League Titles , loyalty at one club . Thundering down the wing with th e ball tied, it seemed , to his foot . Many an inside midfielder had to leave his assignment to help contain Giggs , creating vast amounts of space for other players to get most of the other individual glory . I stick with my pick , thanks.

    I've had a closer look at the poll - you don't mean the Portuguese Eder, do you?

    Also, Giggs? Guy was never even the best player on his team. Doesn't belong in the conversation with the rest of these players.

    He got more votes than 16 on the list so I guess 17 don't belong
