Open Question: SFS: how in the World?
Is Patrick kluivert a legend? He only played international futbol until he was 27!!! At 27 world class players are still playing on their NTs, he was only good until he was 29. After that he want that good. Dont get me wrong, kluivert was a very good player but it was only until 29. Being a legend to me means having consistency into your late years or just breaking records, or becoming the best in your country. Not being good for a little while.

Resolved Question: When Edgar Davids and
were they just here for one last good paycheck before retiring ?
they clearly didn't have the legs any more, well it looked like Davids has lost a yard in pace and some of that energy that had elevated him in the 'best midfielders in the world' list during the mid 90s (94-97), and former Barca icon Kluivert went to Newcastle United of all places.
Do you sometimes feel great players should know when to quit ?
Can you bare seeing average epl players exposing the 'age' and 'once great - not any more' factor in players who in their prime were considered world class ?
or do you understand and somewhat respect them more, if they're playing on and earning one last big paycheck before retirement - even if they're being made to look nothing special in the league ?
Another example of such a player was Fernando Morientez - who in many ways ought to be regarded as a legendary striker...though he flopped big time at Anfield.
Here is what Morientez won career wise so far:
* Real Madrid:
o UEFA Champions League: 1997–98, 1999–2000, 2001–02
o Intercontinental Cup: 1998, 2002
o UEFA Super Cup: 2002
o Spanish League: 2000–01, 2002–03
o Spanish Supercup: 1997, 2001, 2003
o FA Cup: 2005–06
o UEFA Super Cup: 2005
o Spanish Cup: 2007–08
o French League: 2009–10
o French League Cup: 2009–10
