Best overseas PL Player

BBC doing a Vote over on their site, here it is:

Who has been the best overseas player in the English top flight? - http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/47474106

So let's do one here too!

Vote 5* Henry
Vote 4* Cech
Vote 3* Other
Vote 2* Silva
Vote 1* C.Ronaldo

Personally I'm torn between Henry, Silva, C.Ronaldo. If De Gea stays for most of his career in the PL I'd put him in there too

What does everyone think?

Ronaldo lost to Henry in the Final.

Ronaldo's 08/09 season was just as good as his 06/07 one.

Nah he was better in 06/07. The end product is similar but his general performances were better in 06/07. That’s still my favourte Ronaldo season. He was an absolute joy to watch.

Why wouldn't I?

That's what happened.

I said Henry had 5 great seasons in England and Ronaldo had 2.

But actually, Henry's 1999-00 season was just as good as Ronaldo's 2006-07, if not better. His numbers were better and he capped it off by winning the Euros where he was MOTM in the Final & SF.

So in terms of great seasons: Henry 6-2 Ronaldo (6-3 if we throw Ronnie a bone and give him 08-09).

Henry was outscored by Michael Bridges and Kevin Phillips in 99/00.

And Ronaldo was outscored by Benni McCarthy in 06-07.
