    all time - Vasilis Hatzipanagis, aka the greek Maradona

    I bet the vast majority of football fans outside Greece have never heard of Hatzipanagis. The guy is a living legend in Greece. He spent practically his whole career at a relatively small greek team due to strict transfer rules in place at the time. Best Celtic-related comparison I can think of would be as if Jimmy Johnstone were forced to play 15 years for Partick Thistle. He also never played a competitive game for the greek national team, cause he had represented the Soviet Union in his early twenties.

    You know, the full reason I made this thread was to put Stoichkov there for Bulgaria and was too hammered to remember when it came to it apparently:56:

    Broony was a wind up:56: it’s Jinky.

    Yeah, probaby Stoichkov for Bulgaria; but Sirakov and Balakov were really special IMHO. I genuinely loved that team in 94, Letchkov was awesome too. It was like watching Bayern's midfield and strikers with Motherwell's defence playing behind them. Utterly bizarre, but it made for fantastic games.

    I can see a good argument there between Jinky and Dalglish. However I'd go for DK, because Jinky never proved himself in England. :fear:

    Cadete was born in Mozambique and there's no chance you think Rui Costa was a better player than C.Ronaldo.
