Floppy haired Messi before the beard and tats. The fact he always kinda looked like a mildly irritated bank clerk from 1993 added to the aura and mystique.
Kek. Excellent description.

Skinny Fat Ronaldo playing for Barsa pre injury. The most intimidating forward I have ever seen. Every time he had the ball the defenders were bricking themselves.

Del Piero with really long hair and white Predators pre knee injury - scored at a similar rate to Ronaldo in his first Inter season and was lightning quick.

When he came back he was never the same.

Cech in about 2005 before he got his head stoved in. A wall.

Drogba in about 2006. A beast.

Forlan 2010. An artist and a poacher.

Rio in 2008. Rolls Royce.

Vidic in 2009ish. Monster.

Michael Ballack in 2005ish. All action.

Schweini in 2013. General.

Cafu in 2002. Tbf Cafu in any year though.

George Weah in 96. Lightning rod.

Not the "best" version of R9 per se, but his dreadful haircut at the 2002 WC is the most iconic image I have of him.
