Who are currently your 3 favourite players to watch in football
Hi guys, the aim of this thread is simple. Post the 3 players you enjoy watching the most in the game. If you wish, weekly updates could apply based on match performances.
This is not to be based on recent awards or who are perceived to be the best players in the world, but on purely personal choice. Of course this doesn't mean you can't chose Ronaldinho or Henry if they are truly one of your favorites. But I hope people will come to decisions based on what it means to them to watch the player. So that means any names are welcome. Clichy, Crouch, Diego, Janot or Johnny Heitinga are all held on the same merit in this thread.
As stated this is a place for personal choice and reasons. This is not a place for comparisons of players. No criticisms of others choices is acceptable what so ever. For example "your having a laugh mate because Ronaldinho is the best" etc etc. I'm sure we can all agree that we don't want any flame wars.
Also please note that this is for players that can currently be seen playing so please no mention of Pele, Maradona, Zidane etc. We all know how enjoyable they were to watch, but their football days have passed and its time to move on. I think its best this way and will make for a more interesting thread.
As well as listing your 3 favorites, please give a short account on the reason you enjoy watching them play. It would be interesting to hear what you have based your choices on.
Lastly I hope this can become a nice thread which relates to the reason we all love football, the enjoyment it gives us. Forget about rivalry, loyalty and other things. The entertainment factor is key in this thread.
I will obviously get the ball rolling with my current favorites, here they are.
1) Steven Gerrard: I love the commitment he gives to the Liverpool side he is command of, Its great to watch him fight so hard for the team. As well as his fantastic mentality it really is a pleasure to watch this mans unique style of play. He is almost a complete player in my opinion. His long raking passes are a joy to watch while his technique and power has led to some remarkable goals.
2) Xabi Alonso: This player is class personified in my opinion. Much like Gerrard it is a joy to watch him ping precise balls across the pitch with seeming ease. I am a fan of players who have classic technical ability and this man has it in abundance.
3) Kaka: I don't watch this player as often as I would like but whenever I have seen him play he has thoroughly entertained me. His movement on and off the ball and his interplay within the team is quite staggering on occasion. His speed and technique make him an extremely exiting player to watch.
