I never saw much more than a few minutes of video...but my grandfather talked alot about Garrincha when I was growin up. He was one of those guys with low center of gravity and wicked control I hear.
Me personally, I rate alot of guys like Zidane, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, Okocha. In terms of one dribble I always think of when Vagner Love abuse Gallas...it was dread. Or d first time I saw Okocha hit a man d 'Okocha' especially cuz it was in a world cup, not a small goal sweat

Talk about dribbling and left footed. Algeria 1982 WC had a Zidane talk about sick on the dribble and left footed, just ask the Germans

Hoss, daz something eh.. when a man coin a beat such that it name after him..

"De Okocha".. ah remember it; a pull yuh foot over the ball, then stepover one way and go the next way special.. Impossible to defend!

Now yuh cyah talk dribble and leave out Denilson, de quintessential small goal piyong..

Ah could only talk about what I see, and a special mention for Ryan Giggs, Juninho (de nashy one) and Aleksander Hleb.. then Ronaldo9 in his prime..

but imo, in all them old clips, i eh see nobody back then that really was doing anything like what Ronaldinho, Robinho and CR7 are doing nowadays..

I yet to see anybody catch a ball on their chest like dinho, abuse ah man in ah inch of space on the byline like 'binho or have foot speed like Cristiano..

Not the best ever, but Steve McManaman stood out as one of the better dribblers the game has seen in the last 20 years.

Palos you din have no TV in '86 ? The goal dey rated as the greatest ever goal score in de WC ...is who scored dat ? Ask yuh boy Fenwick for he views ...

Respectfully, I doh consider dat as "dribblin" per se.  More like a slalom.  I doh remember seein Diego hittin anybody any crossover...a spanner...a drag..nutten so.  He was more a push and skip man and because of he low centre of gravity, he could ride a tackle like nobody else in de game.

Now if yuh say yuh boy Requelme...yuh would get ZERO argument from me.

Ah was going to stay away but ah have to call ah name. Michael Laudrup sick sick sick dribbler

Micheal hittin' yuh the same tap tap...left to right, right to left...going and coming...game in game out....and yuh still cyah take it away from him....

His passing genius mighta overshadowed his individual dribbling though...

Brian Laudrup had some nice beat too...
