    He was the best winger for three full years. Same as Kante for three years in midfield. He deserves a spot there over most forwards brandished about in this thread.

    Daniel Sturridge is currently trending as one of the most dissapointing Liverpool players of the decade. I know my opinions are often ridiculed but that's just bloody bonkers.

    It's not unreasonable when you think how good he looked over his first eighteen months. There have been shitter signings, but nobody who looked the business one minute and bollocks the next.

    Injuries init. I have no doubt he would have been one of England's best ever strikers if he could have remained fit but I would have him nowhere near a list that contains Karius, Balotelli, Joe Cole and Iago Aspas.

    Disappointment requires expectation, and none of those arrived with or created much of that.

    Sturridge and Welbeck were 'useful' or England but not exactly dependable.

    SSN are doing the moments of the decade and that Aguero goal is ranked 2nd and Leicester winning the league is number one. Can't argue with that.

    As a single moment Aguero(ooooo) has to take it, but as an overall sporting miracle Leicester probably shade it.

    I think you can have it either way but those are the top two anyway.

    Close third is Phil Jones' floor-header.

    I remember not even SEETHING when City won that league in 2012, so I was clearly overcome with the occasion. I watched it in the university bar with my then housemate, who was absolutely fuming, and his Spanish mate who just sat there going 'wow ' like the crappest foreigner.

    It was annoying, yeah, but all I remember thinking at the time is "Oh so THIS is what it felt like those times we did it...."

    An added bonus is that it shifted the NARRATIVE away from United throwing the title away in the April. That Everton match would have haunted the club in any other circumstances.

    Leicester winning the league is genuine once in a lifetime stuff.

    So was a goal in the last minute to wrap up the league. Leicester league win is by far, the winner though. Where is Ranieri these days?

    There have been more events along the lines of the Aguero goal though, whereas I don't think anybody expected a club not being bankrolled by a guy pouring hundreds of millions into the first team would beat the established sides to a title.

    Well, if you're allowed to go back in time to find comparisons for Aguero's goal (say the Arsenal one whenever that was) then surely you are allowed to go back and say teams like Forest winning the League a year after being promoted whenever that was are comparable to Leicester.

    As a single moment in time Aguero's goal was the footballing moment of the decade.

    In the same way United's second in 1999 rates as a greater moment than some no-marks like Porto winning the thing does, even if the latter achievement is more impressive in a wider context.

    It's not though, is it? Football was a much more level playing field in those days.

    Not really, there have always been dominant teams. The 2010s has probably been one of the more 'competitive' eras in English football on title winners.

    That Forest team were knocking off one of the best sides in the history of English football. Liverpool had won the league back to back, and were in the process of doing the same in the European Cup.

    Kante is the signing of the decade.
