99-Rated Players - A Journey Through Time


Recommended Posts

This may have been done before - which players may have been rated a 99 in their own time? Becoming the closest thing to a complete player?

To my mind, there are eight.

Players Worthy of a 99-Rating

- Ferenc Puskas

- Bobby Moore

- Pele

- Franz Beckenbauer

- Johann Cruyff

- Diego Maradona

- Zinedine Zidane

- Ronaldinho

Possible Additions

- Lev Yashin

- Franco Baresi

- George Best

- Duncan Edwards

- Lionel Messi; should achieve it soon!

- Eusebio

- Alfredo di Stefano

Thierry Henry (surely he was worth 99 whilst in the invincibles?)

Paolo Maldini (disputable i know, but one of the best defenders of all time)

ryan giggs and eric cantona :D im very biased, but both would've been 97+ back in the day IMO.

although well before my time, going from reputation i think di stefano and george best should be definites.

Franco Baresi not been mentioned yet? Far, far better than the majority of players mentioned in this thread.

As for current players, I don't think Ronaldo will ever hit 99. I reckon Messi has a great chance, but of the current generation (excluding Messi), I don't think any will actually hit 99. Not even Pato, Aguero or Balotelli. They'll probably peak at 96/97, possibly 98. Chances are they won't even get that high.

Re: 99-Rated Players - A Journey Through Time

im not old enuf 2 know but i would say eusebio and di stefano wud both of been close

I'm not old enough either' date=' but I agree with these two suggestions. My Dad always goes on about how good Eusebio was back in the day. And apart from not winning much on an International level, De Stefano really did win everything, including 5 back-to-back European Cups in the '50's.

Some people may disagree but Alan Shearer. He's the greatest goalscorer this countries ever seen. He didn't have the silky skills that the likes of Ronaldo and Messi have but he was the best at what he did. (In his prime of course)

Oh and how could i forget Tino Asprilla! :P

Come on now. It's insulting to talk about Shearer in the same breath as Pele, Maradona and Cruyff.
