FYI, giggs >>>>>>>>>>>best

best had bags of talent but an attitude of a " balotelli "
You're messing right? Best was one of the best wingers ever, you're obviously about 10 and haven't seen him play, or have rarely seen him play.

For once I agree with nemesis. Giggs is a model professional and on the whole I'd say its more of an asset than Best, Giggs is a role model as well as a quality quality player.

imo anyway. if I dont put 'imo' people go mental so, imo.

Does it matter if you're 10 or 18? Best played in the 60s and 70s, so there is hardly anyone on this forum who has seen him play. I've only seen short clips of him playing, which is probably the same as most on here, unless people watch full matches from that era which is quite frankly sad.

Also, Best had what, a 10 year career at the top of his game? Giggs has performed consistently superbly for about two decades now, and shows no sign of slowing down. If longevity of talent is a requirement, Giggs wins in that area at least hands down.

Seen loads of videos of the guy, he was in a different class to Giggs. Everytime he got the ball, he looked dangerous.

Couldn't really care about who is a model professional, Best was a better player than Giggs.

TBH You can't really compare both players to who's better it is all about opinions but the game has changed so much from when Best played... The question would be could best hack it in the EPL with todays style of football ?, Would Giggs hack it back then ?

Not everyone will agree whos greater some think giggs some think best but really you couldn't just as they played different eras and the football was way different !

Your opinion I guess, but remember that montages of a player can be completely misleading. There's one of Emile Heskey being a clinical goalscorer somewhere on Youtube...
