    Messi is so much better than Rui Acosta it's not even funny. Ronaldo has also surpassed Figo.

    These are teams we'd most like to see, not just the best teams possible.

    Rui Costa was a classic #10 play maker and quite possibly the most elegant player I've ever seen. Watching the guy play was like poetry in motion. Look at the team that I put up there, Messi is not a prototypical #10, he wouldn't fit on there.

    CR7 is better than Figo at scoring goals and that's about it. Figo's footballing abilities are three galaxies removed from what CR7 could ever dream of accomplishing.

    Messi literally fits on any team and could play a number of roles. He's the best player ever.

    As for that Figo vs. Ronaldo statement...oy.

    That's a silly statement. I mean sure, he could play at left back for instance but he would he be better than Roberto Carlos there?

    Yes, Roberto Carlos was immensly overrated. Big shot and quick. Never a great defenseman.
    Though I agree with the main point about Messi (imagine him in goals).

    Too many Frenchies. A team without Diego, Marco, Johan and Franz don't seem right. Renat usually is/ was under the radar, maybe because of the sick Van Basten goal.

    I've seen him once live (and Sepp Maier, Gerd Müller) when I was a small kid at Olympia stadium in Munich. So (at least for me) it counts.:laugh:

    According to the op, you include anyone you've watched in your time.

    In terms of going back through different eras, the thing to recall where football is concerned is the checks and balances from different eras. Rules regarding tackling, offside and backpasses have all been altered since 1992 to benefit attackers with the express intention of more goals being scored. The quality of pitches have improved too, and footballs have been designed with the goal of moving through the air more.

    All these considerations need to be played off against developments in coaching, preparation, speed, strength etc.

    As for the English top flight, foreign players really began arriving in larger numbers in the late 90s. If memory serves, freedom of movement to work anywhere in the EU was enshrined in 1992, but the floodgates really opened up in 1996. That summer European Championships had showcased the transformation of English football's infrastructure and culture, and at the same time the Bosman ruling had ushered in what was tantamount to genuine free agency, making it easier for English clubs to acquire foreign talent for cheaper than home grown players.

    He played football beautifully, and his partnership with Batigol was glorious.

    From 1994-2000 Fiorentina scarcely gave you a dull moment.
