Just remember to keep things civil. :)

Wow, he just megged three people, maradonas around the last defender, and missed the shot, then not five minutes later a guy on the other team shoots when he gets the ball and scores...

who would you rather be?

zola.

he is/was a fanastic player who always played with a smile on his face and with such flair and skill. arguably the premiership's best foreign player ever. no dount abramovich would hav payed a fortune to have him in the current chelski squad. my favourite goal of his was when sum1 took a short corner and he ran in at the near post and flicked it in (if u've seen it u will know which one i mean).

luis figo is still a terrific player, but zola made more of an impact on me than he did.

Kaka - he will be one of the greatest in another 1 or 2 years - just watch the pass in the Champions league final that set up Milan's third (Crespo's second) goal - it was a stroke of genius - he is also incredibly skilful attacking playmaker playing in a league where defenses are hard to break down but he still mansges it.
Totti is also a very good player but I just think Kaka edges it.

Ronaldo vs. Adriano
Without doubt.

Ronaldo. He is still the most feared striker in the world. He only has a couple more years, though. After the next World Cup, Adriano will most likely be the one leading the Brazilian attack.

Freddy Adu or Fred (the Brazilian striker)

adriano by a mile.

he is the complete striker, arguably the best there is. apparently inter want £90 million for him and i think that wd be getting him cheap. he has got it all - pace, strength, incredible shooting, terrific dribbling, good in the air, creative.... ronaldo is still a great player and 3 years ago he would hav won this one but adriano is soooo good now.

govou or essien?

Adriano has everything apart from one thing that Ronaldo has - Adriano can only use his left foot - Ronaldo scores with both - this is the only difference I can see as they are both breathtaking players :D

Essien, he's a pure right midfield. Flair, pace, control he got it all.

Gilardino vs Forlan
The rules of soccer are very simple, basically it is this: if it moves, kick it. If it doesn’t move, kick it until it does.

gilardinho.

italy's wayne rooney has had a great season and has the potential to do better than del piero, inzaghi and vieiri ever did. considering the quality of the defences he has played against his goal tally is outstanding. forlan has also done well but i think gilardinho's age also givs him the edge.

eto'o vs adriano

I'd have to agree with that statement...he can shoot, dribble, pass, and make excellent runs...the main things that strikers do

adriano is definitely the most complete attacker in the world
and he can jump MUCH higher than henry, MMMUUUCCCHHH stronger, much more powerful....
well, not maybe faster, but better with ball skills...

interesting fact is that adriano can jump higher than alan iverson :D adriano can jump over 50 cm from standing normaly....

henry, even though shevchenko is real good, i think herny is better in ball control and experience wise.

when was the last time adriano played in the premiership? it's a different league, so you can't compare them accurately
