As a fan, I've always wondered which players would form part of the best team ever assembled. I know that every fan has their own different opinion on who would be in this team and since this page is for you, the fans, I wanted to help you make the decision. Since there are many great players in the history of the sport, for the purpose of this event, only those players who have played after 1970 will be eligible. It's really hard to find reliable information on players that were active before that year. The chosen formation for the team will be 4-4-2. Once we come up with enough players per position, the voting will begin. Remember to join the conversation and help us decide who deserves a spot.
