    Blackpool and Chelsea do not deserve places above Keegan and Sir Bobby Robson.
    And its SIR Bobby Charlton to you.

    I'm sure Glasgow Rangers fans will be well chuffed with The Hearts being in there!

    Yep, you're right 1966 should be higher - maybe number 1 even.

    Thanks for pointing that out Trevor.

    [u]Roy keane[/u] played in the uk, he's hence associated with brittish football, doesnt really matter where he's from, he applied his trade there and dominated the centre of the field for over a decade!!!
