    That doesn't mean anything, unless you seriously think that Giggs is better than Eder, Rivellino, and Stoichkov...

    The only thing Giggs is the best at is screwing around with his brother's wife.

    So....what's that got to do with football .And even though I don't usually delve into this sort of thing , do you know all the Giggs family history, I don't so I say nothing about it . Again , not relevant

    There's no "depending".
    If someone votes Giggs over Rivelino, Ronaldinho, Stoichlov and all then he has no idea of what he's talking about or he's a United fan with his blinders on.
    Using these votes to evaluate anything is ridiculous given the awful voting so far.

    Lots of these guys weren't true " Wingers". A lot of times they came off
    their wing seeking glory leaving others to fend for them on the outside . You didn't have to worry about Giggs abanding his wing , Everyone on his team new they could count on him being there ... 13 titles , for the same team.

    According to anyone who knows a few things about football
    Find me a single link where Giggs is considered a top 3 LW all time.
    In hockey comparison, it's be like saying a good all star player (never among the best of his Era) is better than Howe, Hull and Co.

    Not really.
    Again, if you tell me Jon Toews is better all time than Lemieux or Gretzky, it ain't too hard.
    He isn't. Won't ever be either.
    And just because you say you think he is doesn't mean it holds any value. It's simply WAY off base.

    But I didn't say Toews is better than anyone , it's what you want to perceive I believe.
    Same as saying Giggs isn't even in the top 3 players on ManU . If it was a poll saying who are the 3 best players on Man U , Giggs wouldn't be one of them . It's a left winger questions . I don't really care who anyone else's pick , but I respect their opinion .

    Toews seems to be a pretty solid comparison for Giggsy ngl

    No, but you said Giggs being a top 3 LW (actually you said top 2) is as valid opinion as saying he isn't.
    Nope. It just isn't valid.

    I agree but these polls are about on the pitch performances, not off the pitch. Giggsy absolutely belongs in this discussion. Most people here have not seen his games for United in the early 90's.

    And for what it's worth, had Rivelino been spelled correctly, I would have voted for him.

    It was a joke. I absolutely love Giggs and I’m a homer, but he’s not close to the best LW of all time. And that’s fine. He was a great player for a club that had great teams for decades. Nothing wrong with him being properly rated.
