Top 25 Player of a Generation – List of the top 25, plus every player who received a vote

I didn’t choose to post this over the weekend, as I didn’t want to ruin the surprise for those who were unable to watch the live podcast Ben and I did last week.

We have now completed the list, and without going to deeply into each player, this is the top 25, as voted for by you, the Stacey West readers.

On page two of the article is the full list, from number one right down to the players who got a single vote.
