Most voters unfortunately do not know too much about our country's footballing history hence the lack of players pre 1958 in the result.Still a great side and would give anyone a run for their money!Similar to NIFG ?
Really not that much difference between the two! Eight players the same.I really think the 80s is a bit under represented (no Whiteside or Armstrong). Aaron Hughes seems to be recentism (hardly ahead of McClelland, Chris Nicholl or even McDonald). Similarly, I think Jackie Blanchflower might be a sympathy vote.Perhaps most controversially, I wouldn't have Best in the team, the best ever player from NI - YES, NI's best player - NO. Bingham and McParland would be my wingers.Two great sides either way, would love to have seen them all take the field!
Can we say Peter Doherty was a Northern Ireland great (or just a footballing great) considering his lack of games for his country (through no fault of his own obviously)?I would agree with Jackie Blanchflower and I would also argue that votes are generally based on what is remembered rather than facts i.e. I've seen Steven Davis play so he gets my vote.I think all 'greatest' results will be flawed in some maner.
"I think all 'greatest' results will be flawed in some maner."Really the crux of it all - fun though"
