The 1990s Football Thread

Think it’s more than that. Academy football moulds players into this and robs kids of individuality and personality.
Nearly all teams set up in the same way. There’s not much different about players in England, Italy, Germany or south America now.
The opening up of players all over the world playing everywhere has took that uniqueness away too.

7/10 and would have been 8 if I hadn’t overthought one of them.

You scored 3 out of 10!

You really struggle at the highest level.

All of them guesses too. Too much for me :santi:

Falls in the 99/00 CL season so I consider it just about making the cut.

What a striker. God like striking ability.

The way he bought himself space with a simple move against a world class CB like Stam.

Jesus, one thing I love about him that I’ve only really seen r9 do (and even here weah seems to do it more frequently) is the scoring a goal with his sprint, as in he’s running into the ball and it just fucks the keeper up because there’s no backswing, just another stride in his sprinting pattern and he’s kicked the ball into the net.

Such a “simple” technique but he’s perfect at it.
