A couple of questions for members to debate -

The first question is inspired by watching Tiger Woods winning his 15th major and 5th Masters last night, Is he the greatest Golfer ever ?

1. In your opinion who are the all time greats (all sports open to debate) ?


The 2nd question is based on debate on this forum about strikers.

2. If Leeds had the cash and opportunity to sign one of the following premier strikers which would you prefer (Aguero, Kane, Salah or Hazzard) ?

1. A few I would choose -
Golf - Jack Nicholas (sorry Tiger)
Football - Pele (first name I always think of when it comes to greats)
Snooker - O'Sullivan (tough on Hendry though)
Cricket - Viv Richards
Boxing - Marciano (just because he had the brains to get out while undefeated)

Lots more Sports to list

2. For me it would be Hazzard, just enjoy watching him play.

1. In your opinion who are the all time greats (all sports open to debate) ?

Boxing - Mike Tyson (Just so devastating in the ring)
Snooker - Ronnie O' Sullivan (If he's in the zone, no one can touch him)
Darts - Phil Taylor (They all tried but no one could beat him)
Tennis - In my era Federer just from Nadal (Never broke sweat)
Athletics - Daley Thompson (Decathlon is the true test)
Football - Maradonna (Find me a more naturally gifted player?)

The 2nd question is based on debate on this forum about strikers.

2. If Leeds had the cash and opportunity to sign one of the following premier strikers which would you prefer (Aguero, Kane, Salah or Hazzard) ?

Kane aswell for me. The complete striker.
