Best British Soccer Players of All TimePuga
The Top Ten
He's the original number 1.
I voted him and my vote want to Dalglish (they were equal with 12%).
If the idiocy has a nickname, I definitely know it.
Best is not the best of this list, but lower than Dalglish is not acceptable.
For me, as a Liverpool fan, he is definitely number 1, but from a neutral perspective, he should be at least top 3. - Aman2201
