Attractive and entertaining football. What I mean, the players with the most dribbling skills, moves and so on. Fancy players in other words. Players that play for fun, not money.

Not many Italians, but here are my nominees. I am sure I forgot one or two players. Feel Free to add.

Poalo Di Canio (West Ham Utd)
Roberto Baggio (Brescia)
Pirlo (Milan)
Zola (Chelsea)
Del Piero (Juventuz)
Totti (Roma) - besides the money with this guy


Who else can I add? Mancini, Signori? I can't really remember if they were the entertainers.

Zola with no doubt, he's a legendary player. No one in the world can do what he can. Most of his goals are classics, not to forget his passes and dribbles.

Well DI canio played for Juventus once I distinctly remember. He got into a physical confrontation with Trap and got air-mailed to Celtic I think.

IMO Di Canio has managed to make the EPL interesting without dominating it. Like Baggio would if he would move to the EPL. And I think of that as something special. Hats off to Di Canio

Juventusfan, no doubt Zola is a classic. I have seen much from this old guy, although recently, unlike Di Canio, I have not seen as much again. I still see flashes, but Di Canio, in practically nearly every much does something somewhat amazing I find.

Zola is old and still very entertaining. One of my fav players.

Remeber the goal of the year in England some years back?
I can't remember who scored, I think an African player, perhaps Babayaro, not to sure. Well what was really impressing was the assist by Zola. He, from what I remembered, scooped the ball over the defence and the other player volleyed the ball or something into the goal. Pure brilliance.

If anyone has that goal, please attach. I would like to download it. ;)

Wow Denco, that slipped my mind. What was I thinking.

Of Course Del Piero should be there. I am so sorry for leaving this guy out.

Cassano? Haven't seen him often enough to know. Is he the dribbling type?

Brighi, I thought about him, but wasn't too sure.

Anyway, I don't think anyone shows their dribbling ability like Di Canio.

He tops my list.

I am not saying the others can't dribble as good, maybe they can, even better, but just don't show it as Di Canio.

Yeah, he's entertaining I would say. But for all the wrong reasons.

True, Di Canio has kept his high level of football, Zola is slipping, but his falshes alone are enough to amaze me every time I see him play.
