Jose would most likely go:

Guendouzi - Luiz
Ozil
Pepe - Laca - Auba

Can anyone enlighten me where this dumb trend of picking Shearer over Henry as GOAT Prem striker and Overrated Giggs over Henry as GOAT Prem player came from?

Baffles my mind.

The way English media worship David Silva and KdB, I won't be surprised if they put them ahead of DB10 and Henry in the greatest Prem players' list.

Blame Cripps

Overrated Giggs over Henry as GOAT Prem player came from?


People who conflate longevity with greatness.

Keane said it best about Giggs: just because you had a great career doesn't mean you are a great player.

Shearer played for genuine pub teams, had 2 horror injuries and still scored 260 goals. Miles ahead of everyone else. Best striker premiership has seen. It's not even a debate lol. I understand the bias fans have to their own players and that's fine but in reality it's not even close.

Agree about Giggs.

Henry played 8 seasons in the PL and won 4 Golden Boots.

His goals per game ratio is also better than Shearer's.

Henry was also miles better as a player overall, far more facets to his game.

The guy has the PL record for assists in a season and he's a striker ffs.

Think about that, Hazard, Cesc, Scholes, Ozil, KDB, Silva - all these greats midfielders yet none of them have been able to match Henry's assist tally.

As a striker or a complete player, however you want to dice it it's Henry > Shearer.

In the season when Henry got the Prem assist record, he also scored more premier league goals than Shearer, and played in the CL as well.

Henry better player. Shearer better striker.

Thank god he never joined Man Utd. He'd be Ronaldo level awesome instead of what he is now.
