I agree with Manchester United being the best club (loved them for years ) but England have not played well enough to claim being the best National Soccer Team. In my opinion that would go to the Argentinaians. I think that they were desperately unlucky in last years World Cup.

Has to be Brazil for the best international side � the 1970�s team being one of the best teams to play the game (maybe not in defense, but they always scored more goals :-)).

As for league sides, pick one of: AC-Milan, Juventius, Man U, Chelsea, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Boca Juniors, River Plate (etc)�

For my money one of the best achievements in football was by a lesser known English club called Nottingham Forest, who won the European cup twice in a row. And they still did not give the manger of this club the job of managing the England team.

If I [ever] get time � I�ll post my best ever team�.

Interesting point � I wonder who would win if the best national league side played against the best international side � I would suggest that the national side would win�

The point is that it�s not always the best players that win, but the best team � so its teamwork that counts � and don�t we see this mirrored in software development (and business).

My team is Corinthians (from Sao Paulo, Brazil). Actually it is not going so well, but it's one of the most popular teams here in Brazil.
About world cups, I think Brazil could have won the last one, something that would transform us on the only country with 6 titles.
Unfortunatelly Ronaldinho didn't play all the game he could (the same he does at Barcelona), but we also had an inspired Zidane on our path.

Aye, I do remember when Scotland scored the first goal against Brazil in a world cup opening match. Of course they lost in the end � Brazil scored more goals�

Did not see any football over the weekend � but I guess the Beep would have managed to talk about the 1966 world cup, during the England match. Maybe during the Scottish match too

Do you mean favourite team, or the team considered best? I ask because clearly England are waaaay off being the best national football team on current form!

My favourites are Reading and England, although clearly neither are the best (one day... one day....). Barcelona have probably been the best domestic club side in the last few years (and have kudos for their refusal of shirt sponsorship in favour of promoting a charity), but have dipped a bit recently.

The best national side is a bit less clear. Brazil are traditionally the best, but their performance in the last world cup was hardly inspiring. Italy are at the top of the rankings, but again, they hardly play attractive football. Argentina probably played the best football in the word cup, but they didn't win it. Should we rate a team on the attractiveness of the football they play, or the results they produce? Italy are world champions, but they did so playing boring defensive tactics.
