It's a question that raises debate with the fans of any football club: Who is the greatest player to have ever worn your team's jersey?

Well, Bleacher Report is hoping to end the debate once and for all by naming the Blues' all-time top 50 players—and we need your help.

If you have an opinion on any of the great players who have graced Stamford Bridge with their talents, we want to hear from you.

Did you grow up in the 1950s when Chelsea first won the league? Was Roy "Gently" Bentley your hero?

Or were you a child of the 60s when Tommy Docherty's "Diamonds" were making their way in the world of football? That era gave us the talents of Ron "Chopper" Harris, Peter Osgood, Peter Bonetti and so many more.

In the modern era, Chelsea's current crop are trailblazing their way into the history books, while those before them, including Gianfranco Zola, Roberto Di Matteo, Kerry Dixon and Pat Nevin are just some more big names before them who have been worshipped.

Alongside John Terry, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba, there are so many more great names to choose from.

But where would they rank in your all-time 50 list? Who would be named Chelsea's greatest?

We want to hear the views of Chelsea fans, using the comments section below or the Twitter hashtag #CFCTop50 to tell us what they think.

We'll compile all the suggestions and publish the Bleacher Report Chelsea Top 50 on Sunday, Sept. 22, so get in touch and help us finish the debate once and for all.
