    It's a difficult one. If I had voted, it probably wouldn't be him but I would understand if many do. As for Van der Sar, that's a joke surely?

    Yea, i think people are looking at the end of the decade. Giggs mayb, but they have forgotten Zidane at Madrid, he played there from 2001 to 2006, one of the best performances by an individual. France also won euro 2000 cos of him, plus he was wonderful in the RM champions league win. Someone
