    The best and greatest of footballers—Pele

    The worst and a pig of a man—Maradona

    My favorite number 10 (Arsenal)—Dennis Bergkamp

    It has always intrigued me why the Anglo footballing world never quite adopted the same reverence for the number 10. In England and Scotland the number 10 was traditionally worn by the second centre-forward (Number 9 being the main striker – think Shearer). In fact, the number 7 shirt was often a more iconic number (think George Best, Eric Cantona and Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United, Kenny Dalglish at Liverpool or Jimmy Johnstone at Celtic). In fact, William Gallas is the current number 10 for the Arsenal team (although Denis Bergkamp played the role brilliantly for several years).

    I think it probably does stem from a more rigid view of team formations in the English game (4-4-2, 4-3-3) and also less of an emphasis on a creative midfield force in the style of football.

    Personally, the best I’ve seen in the flesh have been Maradona, Georghe Hagi and Lubomir Moravcik but there are so many to choose from.

    Maradona, Zidane, Platini…..the list goes on and on….

    Too bad Cruyff wore 14.

      You don’t see him as a player, but he’s in there, 11 seconds in. And I guess Zico is sort of in there, with the guys watching TV.

    How about Geoff Hurst? A bit of a one-hit wonder, but it was quite a hit!

    Yeah, Podolski brings that commercial down a lot. No room for Platini or Zico?
