Pretty much this.As time goes by it is obvious that, due to advancement in understanding and medicine, and through a process of being able to learn from our predecessor, that we become physically more efficient.
It seems as if Duncan Edwards was one of the best during his time, but in todays generation he may not have been the best in the world.
Likewise I feel like a number of players in this era could look one of the worlds best back then. The game has become incredibly tactical and calculated now that it stifles each others ability to express themselves.
Players are generally fitter and faster now than they used to be. It’s very hard to compare different generations.
