i think there was a topic like this a long time ago, but it kind of died away. it was sort of coming back in a beckham thread, so i figured i'd make a new one. anyway, for me it's got to be platini. one of france's finest. up there with cruyff in the "best players not to win a world cup" list.

FORÇA BARÇA!

Well as I said I think Juninho is the best because every time I see him take a freekick he seems to put it home. Requelme and Beckham are also very good free kick takers.

barca v/s sampadoria
last minute
scores are even
barce wins a free kick
ronald koeman lines up the ball preparing to take the free kick
as soon as the sampadoria manager sees koeman lining up the ball, he holds his head in dispair and does nt look at the match
nuff said.
ronald koeman rules

yea i remember that one
though it was a one off thing
have nt seen him repeat anything similar to tht
koeman scored goals from free kicks in every imaginable and unimaginable position
i remember seeing him score for holland from a free kick just a little ahead of the half line, that too from the side. he was simply amazin
trying to, but cant get any clips of his kicks. :(

yeah juninho is the best. i don't know players from the past but i would say he's better than the other candidates like beckham, r. carlos and yes ronaldinho is a player who's very good at every situation...

but juninho makes the greatest ones!

I haven't seen alot of FK's from older players, so I won't even try with them. Juninho is the best of this generation.

i'm pretty sure people have mentioned him. in fact, i'm reading his name right now. and this thread is the best free kick taker of all time. you honestly think ronaldinho is better than juninho, platini, rivelino, beckham, and all the rest? he's not even the best of his time, so i'm going to disagree.
