I added this because I was watching at history of Ian Wight's goals and its f**cking amazing.
Paul Scholes.
Any game in particular or just over a period?

I included Klinsmann because of the away game against Palace in 94? Ben Thatcher sent off, Jurgen came on and the combination of skill and pure industry just blew me away. Made Chris Armstrong look like the lazy, talent-less piece of sh*t that he was.

Struggling to care
Wondering if anyone will pick a defender? Ledley was almost unreal at times, but its the passes and goals that get the girls.
 
I could tell you the best young player I ever saw live who went on to be a Premier League player and never got a chance to make the most of unbounded potential.

Abou Diaby.

Seriously unbelievable, I was fucking RAGING when Woolwich signed him. I've not seen a player dominate the entire midfield like him since live.

And I don't mean on TV because there's something extra special seeing a living god live - It could be one game or many. Don't mention Blanchflower, Greaves or Gilzean unless you were there. This is an open question across all clubs and any games that you've seen.

For me Cantona and Klinnsman. There were times that Sol Campbell made me shake my head in awe as unpopular as that will be.

Please discuss.


Ok genuine answer:

Eric “ sardines “ Cantona

They say that one man doesn’t make a team; he proved that fable wrong on many an occasion.

Juninho for Middlesborough was utterly mesmerizing.
Zola was brilliant
Wayne Rooney before he turned 25
Scholes
Cantona
Aguero
David Silva
He's a cunt but van Persie was a terrific player
Le Tissier
Xabi Alonso
van der Sar
Jay Jay Okocha
Essien
Robben
Tevez
Suarez
Hoddle

There's a far few more if I can engage my brain a bit more.

Premier League player?
 
Mousa Dembele.

Had a season ticket on the back row of the Paxton Road lower and watching him consistently break down, compose and switch play in midfield was mesmerising.

When Gareth Bale was at his Tottenham peak (2012-13) that was incredible as well.

Opposition wise (ok not Premier League) but Messi was utterly ridiculous that day at Wembley when we lost 4-2 to Barca.
