Pele or Maradona? Real Madrid 1953-60 or Barcelona 2008-11? As one of the football world’s universal debates, rating and ranking the greatest of all time is nothing new. But we hope that our approach is. By attempting to quantify the stats and apply a properly relevant formula to each separate discussion, we hope to present objective lists of the greatest clubs, players, countries, managers and so much more over the coming months. While we do not pretend to settle any debate, we hope our lists encourage it.
