    Default Greatest Athletes of All-Time

    I just wanted to start a thread where athletes of all sports, all nationalities could be celebrated and viewed in awe. Surely there will be discussions (not arguments) about who is the greatest this or that, but at the end of the day all should be given some respect for their accomplishments in the sport(s) they played...

    I start with the Super Friends/Justice League of sports










    And for the oldies

    Didn't look through any YouTube clip compilations... Maldini was a great defender over so many years. Handsome guy too....

    Baresi, who played for AC Milan, is probably the best defender I have seen.

    Virgil Van Dijk is the current best.

    He ain't one of the greatest of all time but fuck me he is far too good for the Villa, when he does finally leave us I wish him nothing but the best.

    He's easily the most naturally talented player that the Villa have produced in my lifetime.

    Grealish is nice, how long do you expect he'll stay at Villa? I'd imagine immediate improvement will be needed or he'll head to a "bigger club". Certainly United and Spurs would take a look at him.

    It's a strange one with regards to how long he will stay because he is a villa fan through and through, he has already delayed his progression by sticking with us, if we hold onto him until the end of the season I'll be happy.

    As I said before he is far too good for us, if he does leave I hope it's for one of the big boys

    Maldini was the best defender ever because his versatility is ridiculous.
    Baresi was amazing, but as Central Defenders, overall , Alessandro Nesta was absolutely untouchable.
    This is how good Nesta is. In 2006, Nesta got injured and it made Cannavaro look amazing because he had plenty of heroic work to do. But if Nesta had stayed fit, Cannavaro wouldn’t have had to work that hard, it would’ve been fucking easy. Pace, Elegance, skill, courage. He had the fucking lot.
    Greatest Athlete of all time? Depends what you’re basing it on, and what side of the World you come from.
    Ali, Woods, Carl Lewis, Walter Payton , Michael Jordan from over the pond. From this side, Federer, Mercxx,
    And then there’s Usain Bolt & Jonah Lomu. 🤷*♂️
