A one-club man is essentially an endangered species because loyalty in modern-day footballers is generally perceived as an irrelevant attribute.
This article will pay homage to those footballers who overcame a combination of the "out with the old, in with the new" managerial school of thought, potential moves to other clubs, and politicking within the club.
What is the method behind my list of the 10 greatest one-club men in football?
I've only included retired players because how do we know a current player will stay at his club? Raúl comes to mind.
The players are ranked according to their place in football history.
Invariably with lists like this, I've omitted some big names, so here are the 10 players who were cut: Uwe Seeler, Billy Wright, Tony Adams, Fritz Walter, Berti Vogts, Giuseppe Bergomi, Giampiero Boniperti, Max Morlock, Bill Foulkes and Matt Le Tissier.
