    It’s where he spent the majority of his prime & where he’s most known. Hardly a household name outside of England tbh.

    Italians may disagree with you.


    That said, they need more variety with their icon picks.

    Fair enough, but hopefully we get some more top-tier Icons from other leagues/nationalities before they go into the B-tier PL category

    Depends how you mean by "most known", hes obviously going to be "most known" in England considering he's English...he's massively known internationally though. His best spells were spent in Italy & Scotland!

    That's really not true at all. Rangers probably had him in his prime. He was only 25 when he went to Lazio. And he was very much a household name. Was one of the best players at Italia 90.

    I've never heard a Dutch football supporter mention the name Gazza. I don't think a lot of those pre-mid 90s England icons carry much weight here with the exception of a few.

    Not a diss, just saying.

    Don’t forget he performed really well at Italia ‘90 and Euro ‘96 aswell. Deserving of an icon IMO

    In fairness there will be younger English who have no idea who Marco Van Basten is.

    Thanks. That name I know, just didn't realize that was his nickname..

    Now someone needs to explain why in the world he would deserve an Icon..?

    They need to rebrand some if them to "Nostalgia" or "Flashbacks". Scrap that Base/Middle/Prime/PIM bs and give out multiple tiers of historic players / legends and Icons..

    He's one of if not the most talented English players ever but is a complete basket case to go with it. From a pure footballing talent point of view he's very deserving of an icon, way more than most of the current English icons anyway.

    At least you speak sense. I am a rangers fan but I'm not going to argue and say larrson for example shouldn't be an icon. Imo he's the best striker I have seen in the spl and understand he's a true celtic legend

    As got gazza I agree he is a fruit and nut but can't deny the talent that he had. I would love a gazza icon card personally but I doubt it going to happen anytime soon if it ever does :(

    As I said I know who he is and I watched him play. Just wasn't familiar with the nickname.

    He was talented, no doubt. But imho his potential never fully expanded.

    But as you said: there are some other really questionable choices to be called an "Icon" or "Legend", hence my desire to rename them, scrap the Icon tiers and introduce more variety.

    Imho there is no need for 4 versions of Ronaldinho.. currently there is: too young, PIM, too old and too drunk.
    The only one that should exist is the PIM version and maybe, just maybe the "too drunk" version if you want am affordablen end of career version..
    but then again one of the Robert Carlos versions should be that CDM from his turkish/russian league times..

    I think he deserves an Icon, true character of the game plus... after seeing a documentary which he did. I think he is only ever player to get Man Of The Match when p****d out his head an not even remember playing the game, true fact. That was in his Everton days. Walter Smith threatened to kill him if he turned up intoxicated again 😂😂
