Right, this is finally starting to gain some credibility.

I think Overmars was up there in importance with Vieira and Bergkamp in Arsenals late 90s development from defensively solid to a more creative and exciting team to watch.

Silva has been Man City's best player since 2010 in my opinion. They are just so much better when he's playing, and makes their whole system more effective. He should score more goals though, only half as many as Overmars in almost twice the number of games.

2 very worthy players, and two that wouldn't look out of place in the top 50.

Cardsfan, I didn't mean to steal your thunder mate. i thought you may be apprehensive about re-starting this for one reason or another and I was just enthusiastically giving you a nudge so you knew we were still interested.

Seth Johnson's greatest achievement is surely entering contract negotiations with Leeds in the hope of securing £30,000 per week, only to sign a deal granting him a weekly wage of £60,000. That's some Derren Brown shit right there.
