I would say that Paul Gascoigne is arguably the best player that England has ever had.

Just a real shame that he was lacking it mentally, and had serious issues away from the playing field.

Obviously difficult to compare players from different eras. Who knows what Duncan Edwards might have become ?

Gordon Banks, Bobby Moore, Jimmy Greaves, and many more.

Yes, Scholes is surely one of the best, but how you can mention Wilshere in the same breath as Gascoigne just beggars belief.

I didn't mention Wilshere in the same breath as Gazza, but Scholes.

Never really saw Gascoigne at his peak, and by all accounts his peak was early before his leg break aged 22.

Wilshere is a phenomenal player, only those that watch every Arsenal match know what I mean, the kid's got everything and will no doubt be in contention for man of the tournament in Brazil.

Why is Scholes apparently a worse player than Gascoigne because he didn't "play beyond the last eight of an international tournament" and Gascoigne did?

If Lineker hadn't scored two penalties and Spain hadn't failed to score two penalties, Gascoigne would never had got "played beyond the last eight of an international tournament".

Would that have made him a worse player?

English players tend not to move because they command high salaries and transfers, because the English league is rich. Players are reluctant to move because they can pick up the best salaries in a place where they don't have to take the risk adapting culturally and linguistically.

If there haven't been any good English players since Gascoigne then why have so many players won champions leagues? When asked to name an XI of players he'd managed recently why did Ancelotti include Terry and Lampard?

Interesting thread.

I too am of the view that we could go to the World Cup with our best squad since Italia 90, but I still feel that Hodgson will place his trust in the older generation of players rather than the youngsters who should be on the pitch from the start of the first game.

There's no doubt in my mind that Gascoigne is the best English footballer I have seen in my life, several levels above anyone we've seen since, including Scholes, Gerrard, Beckham et al. Before the 1991 Cup Final, he was awesome, he had the lot. Phenomenal skill, phenomenal strength, superb vision, the lot. It is a testament to his ability that he could still shine on the biggest stages even on one leg.

I have high hopes for both Wilshere and Barkley though, and I hope Hodgson has the courage to select them in Brazil.

Shearer was better for England than Gazza. Gazza potentially the best ever, but came nowhere near realising his potential. Wilshere - I'm an arsenal fan and have yet to be convinced by the hype. He certainly hasn't shown the talent of a Gazza or Scholes yet imo. Scholes was wasted by manager after manager who seemed to prefer the Gerrard/Lampard combo which never seemed to work.

I never thought Beckham was as good as the media made him out to be but he didn't have to be once he could cross and take free-kicks like that. He'd be one of the first names on the sheet for that alone.

Numerous other 'non-flair' players England have had since Gazza who were more than 'decent' at intl level.

Gascgoine was the best player in the world in 1990/91 .The Spurs team of the day was full of journeyman - maybe the worst Spurs side ever player for player - and should have been battling relegation but they were up in the Top 4 and won The FA Cup when that was still a big deal.

After that he was injured as often as he played but when he was fit he could still be world class.

That he 'didn't do much' for England was not down to his lack of world class ability . He did play in that comical defeat away to Norway (Hit Les over the top! ) in 1993 but apart from that all England's abject failures in the 1990s happened with Gazza either injured or suspended . Can only think of the Norway game and the Germany semi finals as competitive games England lost when he was in the team . And England lost plenty of important games when he wasn't there.

When he was available for the big games v the big teams he was almost invariably the best player on the pitch: vs Holland and West Germany 1990 WC , and even as late as October 1997 in the Rome qualifier v Italy he dominated midfield . After that he went on an 8 month pub crawl with Danny Baker, Chris Evans and the Fat Bellies bloke and that was that unfortunately .

Depends what you mean by decent player, most posts have focused on attacking players. Ashley Cole has often been mentioned as being in the top 3 in his position, behind  Roberto Carlos and Philip Lahm.
Most creative English players I have seen live, Worthington, Hoddle,Gascoigne, Le Tissier, Keegan and Woodcock.

Players I would loved to have seen live, Cantona, Bergkamp, Henry, Cruyff (not Jordi),Netzer,Klinnsman and Puskas.

I mean booked so couldn't play.    Nearly same Laugh
Goal v Scotland not even sure what it was in qualifier home international. But not too important
Best player in world 1990 your tickling my perineum
I repeat what did he win as the best player in the world and did anyone even want him just spurs and they ended up paying .
Very Poor IMO never played a big match when important self imploded and dragged the squad down with him.

Why don't you do some research before posting ? Perhaps you weren't old enough to remember 1996, which would be understandable. Otherwise, you must surely be on the wind up.
