    I like Trueman a lot but he never struck me as having the best action. He always seemed like a massive tangle of arms and legs with a mop of wavy hair and a ferocious scowl. Also I felt his action was a bit too hurried and not poetry in motion like a few others. Actually would rate Astle and Dillon higher than him.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Not voting for anyone else because it'd be a travesty if Ramesh went out. Just a gorgeous action.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Okay, this is a close round, currently Ambrose on 27 points, and Cairns and Powar tied up on 25 points. Will leave it open for a bit as I don't want to cast the deciding vote quite yet.
