Crowdsourcing Historic Some Player Ratings - Need Your Help

By Ted Knutson

I need to crowdsource something. In general I am trying to get the correct historic perspective on some older players.

Rate the players coming up from 1-5.
5=World Class, starter on a top CL team.
4=Very good.
3=League Regular
2=Backup in a major league
1=Lower League talent only

Examples:
Messi is a 5 (and would be higher if the scale went there).
Frank Lampard is a 5
Robert Pires is a 5.
Nani is a 4 .
Gareth Barry is a 4.
Damien Duff is a 3.

Now give me your ratings for the following:

Brett Emerton.
Muzzy Izzet.
Morten Gamst Pedersen.
David Bentley.
Carlton Cole
Stephane Sessegnon
Sal Kalou
Thomas Hitzsperger
Jermaine Pennant
Steed Malbranque
Nobby Solano
Eyal Berkovic
Geremi
Wayne Routledge
Simon Davies
Danny Murphy
El-Hadji Diouf
