Top 50 players list

Thankfully there is no sight of Jimmy Carr, but Times Online this week published (amongst a series of 'top 50's') a top 50 City players of all time list, authored by Ric Turner, the man behind Bluemoon.

The difficulty is that although you can factor in some statistical evidence (goals, appearances etc) lists of this nature cannot be scientific and so much is open to question, which of course all adds to the debate.

It is a fairly comprehensive list and you cannot say that there any glaring ommissions. What is evident is the lack of names from the past 15-20 years, a damning indictment of our recent history, with Gio Kinkladze (number 12) the highest ranked player of recent times.

I'm sure the list will provoke plenty of discussion and disagreement at some of the names and positions.
