Who is the best premier League player ever for you?

Post

Might just be nostalgia but think Thierry Henry will always be number 1 for me. Just an absolutely fabulous footballer who could do it all.

Plenty of options though. Rooney, Lampard, Scholes, Terry, KDB, Silva, Augero, Kane and probably a couple from across the park.

Henry, followed somewhat way behind by Shearer I think.

Henry is a fair shout. Shearer and Scholes too. Surprised Zola hasn't made the shortlist. I thought he was a genius at his best and that ridiculous goal from the corner v Norwich, but again might be an age thing as I've included no one recent!

Bergkamp for me, could do stuff I've never seen a player do before or since.

I think Henry for his pace and goal scoring is a great shout, but I've never been more blown away by a player's ability with a footy than Bergkamp.

Yeah I'd say Bergkamp too, genuine genius.

Bergkamp is probably technically the best. I went with Henry for being the best all round.

Yeah I honestly get the Henry choice, incredible player... Completely unplayable on a consistent basis, I'd have him in my top few of all time and wouldn't ever argue against him as someone else's choice.

Also not the best, but still one I always have to mention in threads like this - Georgi Kinkladze.

Absolute magician.

KDB or Bergkamp for me.

Mainly because both would regularly do stuff that I wouldn't even consider to be a possibility. They wouldn't just entertain me, they'd surprise me.

(While on the other end of the spectrum were players like Hitzlsperger or Robben, obviously they weren't the best but I couldn't help admiring how everyone knew exactly what they were going to do and still couldn't stop them.)

From left field but I loved Roy Keane.

it wasnt always back to the walls, smashing into tackles etc.

Thierry Henry

KDB and Shearer would make the top 5. Then 2 of Bergkamp/Kane/Ronaldo/Bergkamp/Lampard/Rooney/Drogba/Bale. Probably a couple of RS in there too, but I can't bring myself to type their names.
