I’ve been a massive fan of your blog for about a year now and it’s given me inspiration to make some of mine own lists, which definitely wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible amount of information you provide. I was just wondering if you’re intending on continuing the project as I haven’t seen much activity lately and I’d really hate for it to be abandoned as it’s probably the best collection of football knowledge I’ve ever seen.

Good knowledge !”

  9. Hi
    Big fan of your blog, I visit the website regularly regularly.
    I wonder if when you say that you are updating the rankings for the 2022 World Cup, if you are also including club performances for the last few years. Here are six players that I think deserve to be in the Top 100, I’d love to know your thoughts on them.
    Alisson Becker , Raphael Varane , Ruben Dias , Trent Alexander-Arnold , Marco Veratti , Vinicius Jr.
