BRAZIL, of course, 5 WC wins means something, i think. they play the most beautiful game, and no team can compare to them, not even france in 98 when they beat them.

manchester uniteds european cup winning teams from 1968 and 1999 were both very impressive.....best, law, charlton, kidd, stiles.....beckham, keane, scholes, giggs, yorke, cole, stam, schmeichel......among others.

i think those were the best club teams. internationally, probably france's euro 2000 winning team, with players like henry, zidane, thuram, wiltord, makelele, petit, vieira, barthez, blanc....

those teams are recent but to be honest i dont know much about great teams of the past, im better when it comes to players :oops:

Arsenal in 03-04 (surprise!) But seriously, 49 games unbeaten, it can't be touched, I mean, Chelsea, a team worth over 250 million dollars, got 40 games, not close to 49. They had so much team chemistry, their play was beautiful, some of the best I've ever seen

last time i checked, 40 was reasonably close to 49. arsenal can never be the best to ever play. make a real suggestion. so far i haven't seen anything that even challenges holland 74. brasil's 1970 team was great, as were hungary in 54. anyone else with a good opinion? i did like matt's answer though. france in the late 90's were great, and their euro winning team was fantastic. as far as clubs go, real madrid in the 60's. does anyone know who won the first five champions league tournaments (then called champions/european cup)? real madrid. no one can touch them as far as clubs are concerned. matt got the next best team though. back in that time, no one beat a team with george best on it.

so, other teams have beaten brazil, uruguay beat brazil in 1950 when they built that huge stadium just for the event...feel sorry for them :(

also i believe zidane was the main reason france was able to beat brazil in 98.

as for my choice of the best team ever, i would say probably brazil back in the late 90's as they are just a beautiful team to watch and with players like ronaldo, ronaldinho among the rest of the team they are just awesome. As for leagues teams id probably go real madrid and arsenal for the past couple of years[/quote]

in terms of talent: the dutch teams of 74, 90, 98 and 00 were brilliant
actual greatest team ever
holland 74
ajax 71
the first modern club team
and the first modern national team
these teams left a legacy that made the wolrd game what it is today
they also had cruyff! :D

cruyff was practically nothing without the rest of his team. namely a supporting attacker named johan neeskens. holland 74 were the best team that ever played, but it wasn't because of cruyff. it was the closest thing to absolute perfect that you'll ever see. as for being "the first modern national team," you've obviously never seen a brasil 70 match. not the best ever, but at the time, no one could stop them.
