PostSubject: Your favorite football players.   Fri Apr 02, 2010 7:50 am

Well, there are three players that I absolutely admire watching. Steven Gerrard, captain of Liverpool football club; Ronaldinho, who plays in left-attacking midfield position for AC Milan; Kaka, who plays as a attacking midfielder for Real Madrid. All three are different sort of player.

Gerrard is a box-to-box centre midfielder who runs around the ground making killer passes and through balls, and then occasionally makes runs to the penalty area to take chances himself. His passing and long shooting is brilliant, and can finish as goo as any striker.

Ronaldinho is sadly not the same player he was before. He is not as quick with his feet anymore, but he has compensated for that by providing brilliant through balls to the strikers, and still loves to take defenders one on one. Absolutely a treat to watch when he's in good form.

Kaka is also an attacking midfielder like Ronaldinho, but has got a very different style. Ronaldinho depends on his trickery with his feet and dribbling abilities, Kaka uses his pace and finishing abilities. He can make forward runs that a centre forward would be jealous of, and his fantastic passing abilities mean he can create lots of chances for other players as well.

These three players got me watching football regularly and still love to watch them. There are many other great players I love to watch. Fernando Torres, one of the best strikers in the world. Bastian Schweinsteiger who can play in left midfield, right midfield, center midfield just as brilliantly. Puyol, Paolo Maldini, Alesandro Nesta, who in their prime were few of the best defenders.

So I'd like to know who are your favorite players and why do you like them...

My favorite player is Podolski of the German national team, and Michael Ballack, captain of the German National team and the Chelsea club team

Podolski is great! Unfortunately, Bayern didn't play him when he was with them. IMO he would have been one of the best strikers by now if they had used him. He is currently with Koln is he not? Is he there on loan or did Bayern sell him? I watched him with Germany and he was fantastic!

Ballack? Another great. But I don't think Chelsea get the best out of him. He's capable of much more. Look at how he plays for Germany. He is their play maker. I hope he'll be in top form when the World Cup begins...

Podolski is still Germany's national striker last I checked. I think h's on loan.

And Ballack is awesome. That was pretty crazy in the Spain and Germany final at the Euro cup when Ballack got head-butted and ripped up his forhead. Then he waltzed back on the field and was like "Wazzup dudes? what are you looking at?" Lol.

*laughs* Yeah, both Ballack and Podolski were totally awesome at Euro 2008. And Schweinsteiger and Phillip Lahm. Seriously, Lahm is my favorite full back. Totally great going forward, and he knows how too defend pretty well too...

Lahm is an epic full-back. I love Gerrard (being a Liverpool fan) and Richard Dunne (being Irish).

I can't wait for the Champion's League Final tomorrow. Lahm, Robben, Ribery, Eto'o, Maicon and José Mourinho (best manager in the world!)

We are talking about football where the foot actually connects with the ball. Not American football where the thing is kept in hands and people run with it...

Thas great DD. He still has awesome quality left in him. Had it not been for his low pace, he would be still playing in the English side I think. His crosses are simply amazing. Very, very few players I have seen that can manage such quality crosses so regularly. Just fantastic technique with the ball...
