To celebrate the start of a new decade (yeah 2000-2009 is 10 years :P) let's look back at the best players, coaches and teams of the last decade. Since it would be too difficult to create individual polls for each just vote for them in this thread. At the end of all this let's put up the decade's best XI. Let's start out with the best Gks of the last decade.

Nominees: Edwin Van Der Saar, Gianluigi Buffon, Iker Casillas, Petr Cech, Peter Schmeichel, Andreas Kopke, Oliver Kahn

(Feel free to name more people and persuade others to vote for your man :D)

Side Note: No flaming and remember best of last decade means not guys who just appeared in the last 3 seasons. Oh and you can nominate someone who is already retired.

edit: added Peter Schmeichel, Andreas Kopke and oliver Kahn as nominees.
gotta be buffon
I'd vote for Cech, because if I was him I would have retired from football after the head injury.

Though I like Casillas as much, for becoming an indispensable part of R.Madrid almost since the beginning of his shiny career.

I don't like either Buffon or Van der Saar, but that's just me.
I think is Casillas cause the other ones have had always till recently solid defenders, well Madrid never had good defenders the last decade except only Sanchis and Hierro who were back in 1998 and before!
Since it seems not that many people are voting, I decided to add the next list of nominees but this time for CB. Since teams need 2 CBs we'll pick the top 2 CBs in the list.

Nominees: Fabio Cannavaro, Alessandro Nesta, Paolo Maldini, Roberto Ayala, Walter Samuel, John Terry, Rio Ferdinand, Carles Puyol, Jaap Stam, Lucio, Lillian Thuram, Ricardo Carvalho.
Casillas
Maldini
Cannavaro
casillas
definately maldini
and cannavaro or thuram
I think is Casillas cause the other ones have had always till recently solid defenders, well Madrid never had good defenders the last decade except only Sanchis and Hierro who were back in 1998 and before!



you're kiddin', right ?!
I'd vote for Maldini... and Stam because I like his name :p
Alright now for the nominees for best RB of the decade.

Nominees: Javier Zanetti, Gary Neville, Gianluca Zambrotta, Cafu, Michel Salgado, Dani Alves, Maicon.
Javier Zanetti
No Comedian I'm not kidding, anyway, Madrid was never proud for their solid defense mate and I am watching european football since 1984!
I vote for Casillas, Puyol, Terry!
And Zambrotta for RB!
so you're telling me that buffon always had good amount of world class defenders in front of him(legrottaglie, andrade,zebina etc.) .... or van der saar who played in fulham (the team with the "best" backup) ....
I am going to vote for GK-Casillas - always liked him, amazing considering he never has had a great defence infront of him
CB- Japp Stam, as soon as he came into the light in holland national side and then when he moved to man u, i belive him to be man u best defender of the decade as well!
CB- Fabio Cannavaro- liked fabio for a while, he is a classical cb, strong and could read the game well

RB- Gianluca Zambrotta, typical itilian, flair and always like a chance to score, love his attacking and was always solid at the back when needed.


I would also like to say that i would vote for maldini at LB as when ever i would watch AC Milan i thought he played better in this position!

So many amazing players!!!
Zambrotta for me as well :yes
