OK, here's the story, Brian:

I actually created the list on my computer yesterday, but when I came to upload it to the blog today, I found I'd lost it.

I therefore had to recreate the whole list again from memory which I thought I'd done perfectly.

Only I hadn't. Believe it or not Ryan Giggs was on my original list, but I forgot to add him the second time around.

Thanks for reminding me! :-)

Ah yes, Matt Le Tissier, too - well done.

What a fine player he was... I'd love to have seen him play for England more often as he certainly had the skill to beat some teams almost single-handedly.

A great scorer of goals in the mould of Glenn Hoddle.

you cant really include giggs cos hes not retired. wales in 2010 anyone?

Chris said...

I suppose not, and I for one would love to see Wales qualify for the World Cup Finals again...

neville southall is a glaring omission chris.the best british keeper since gordon banks.also he played for everton which raises his status anyway

Chris O said...

Quite right, Paddy. These lists are rarely meant to be all-inclusive, so feel free to add to them whenever you like!

We Love SPAOTP!
