    Post your list of 20 best left backs of all-time. I'll close the thread on the 19th of August (unless we decide to extend the vote).

    Note: we've decided to separate right and left backs and to put versatile players only on the list of their preferred position. I'll provide a guide on the most known cases, if you doubt whenever the player you think of prefers left or right, please post the question in the discussion thread.

    Right backs:
    Zanetti, Amoros, Lahm, Zambrotta, Panucci

    Left backs:
    Brehme, Irwin, Demyanenko, Bossis

    Note: all discussion goes to this thread
    - http://www.redcafe.net/threads/redcafes-top-20-by-position.448431/

    Note: you can post less than 20 names, but not more

    The list should be posted in the required format:

    1. J. O'Shea
    2. P. Jones
    ...

    20.

    NB: After careful consideration, only players that had played at least a season after the 1950 WC are eligible.
