^^^^when did i say i liked lfc??? so since im a man utd fan, i cant like any other players in the world except for them?? that would make me a "homer" which i am far from it. i respect the game that ive played for nearly my entire life, including a year of division 1 college soccer. i also like cesc fabregas, does that make me a gooner now too? i like andrea pirlo as well, does that make me a ac milan fan too??? now, if i liked a man city player, then i wouldnt consider myself a utd fan.
scholes has outlasted roy keane not because of playing styles, keano was nearly 40 years of age!!! no one over 35 should be playing high class football anywhere in the world, and yes that includes maldini and anyone else.
comparing stevie g to fat frank?!?! please, lamps is no where near the tackler gerrard is and lamps has about a tenth of the pace that stevie has, unless its a race to the nearest meat pie stand. stevie has put his club on his back on numerous occasions, i cant say the same for lamps. lfc are fine in the ball distributing department, gerrard can pick out any player on the pitch from anywhere and the same goes for xaxi alonso. their problem is up front, they cant score in prem matches it seems. gerrard can take the game by the scruff of the neck at any time, he's a born leader and it shows every time he steps on the pitch. im not trying to knock scholesy at all, they are very similar its just gerrard is better in all aspects, he is bigger, stronger in tackles, passing, and gerrard can cover 10x the amount of the field that scholes can in 90 mins.
england sucked because of steve mcclaren and at some points sven goran erikkson, their former managers, anyone who knows english football will tell you that. mcclaren was and still is a kook.
comparing winning stats is absurd because we all know it takes 11 players to win a football match, its not gerrard's fault that man utd have been the better team. as much i hate to say it, gerrard deserves a premiership title.
and finally, eric cantona is my fav utd player, he is the best man utd player of all time. oooh ahhh cantona!!!
im trying not to knock stevie hes a good player but he is a scouser. him & frank lamps are very similar players if you played soccer youd know this although stieve is more of a box to box cm. as for keano he retired @ 34 due to a hip problem which was due to his playing style. i love keano like i said.
scholesy was thrown to the right in euro 2004 to compensate for lamps and steive in the middle and we all know how that turned out. steive is better on the flank for england. as for gerrard he has put lfc on his back at times but then again isnt that what a youth academy player turned captain is supposed to do? and finishoing wise gerrard has had owen, heskey, fowler, and finally torres. hes had his number of srikers maybe not on par with ruud, rooney but scholesy had sheringham, saha, cole, not exactly world class the latter were.
as for cantona hes the king but man utd players id have to go with:
