Greatest ever England player

Bobby Moore won the FA's poll by some distance -

Nat Lofthouse came second thanks to a Bolton fans organised internet campaign.
Last season Jussi Jääskeläinen was voted as Sky sports premiership goalkeeper of the year after a similar hijacking of the poll.

Jääskeläinens a great keeper :!: I think our boy Tim Howards more deserving of the accolade though. Greatest ever England player? Brian Robson (Im not biased me honest ;-))

Tom Finney was before my time but from what I've read he was a fine player, I would have loved to see him play. Matthews was obviously good but my grandad used to tell me that Finney was at least as good but didn't get the acclaim.

Spooky Junot. My Grandad said that Mathews was selfish and that Finney was much better...

But the best England player ever: John Barnes, except when he was playing for England :?
