The 3 big
Every manager was asked the same three questions:-
- Who is your best buy?
- Who is the best player you have missed out on?
- What three qualities do you look for in a player?
In the year, we have also asked managers to nominate who they think is going to be a star player for the World Cup in South Africa 2010. You will be amazed at some of the answers! At benchtalk.co.uk, we are convinced Fabian Delph is the new Jean Tigana. Check our Search for a Star page. Tell us who you believe will emerge as the next Moore, Pele, Maradona, Cruyff or Zidane.
