Everyone has their favourite players from Cristiano Ronaldo to a gritty centre back for your local side, but there are some footballers that you love to watch but you just can’t put your finger on why.
A man mountain if there ever was one, and the Englishman is painfully underrated in today's footballing landscape.
Heskey was the original, strong, big man up top and helped to define that role, and when you look back on his career there's just something you can't bring yourself to hate.

Run of the mill, average, every day player in alot of senses. But Chris Brunt seems to be ever consistent when he's playing for the Baggies, and it's hard not to enjoy watching him play given how much of a game-changer he can be.
As a Wolves fan, this one is particularly painful.
What a horrible bloke this guy has been over the years; the biting, the diving and the overall attitude of Luis Suarez has gained him a great deal of haters throughout his career.
Despite this, though, something about the way he plays when he's on top form makes people forget all that.
As someone who wanted Liverpool to win the Premier League a few years ago, this one is particularly odd.
Demba Ba chose money over the trials and tribulations of the English top flight, but for some reason he is still an extremely likeable player both on and off the pitch.
He's done some not so great things over the years, but Cashley still has something within him.
That thing is probably just an ageless ability to succeed in whatever team the left-back plays for.
The lad who was told he wouldn't make it because his height resembled an oompa loompa as opposed to a footballer.
After a bright start to his career, SWP kind of dwindled out of the spotlight and ran off to the MLS to be with his much more successful brother. Still likeable, though.
Leadbitter is the ultimate underdog story of someone who was born in small surroundings but worked hard and fought to get to where he is today.
The midfielder is a fan favourite at Boro, but actually loving him as a player is different because good old Grant doesn't really have much to him.

Craig Gardner, by all accounts, is pretty forgettable in the footballing world. Hasn't done too much of note over his career and has kind of bounced from place to place without settling, but once again he has the ability to grab the attention and hearts of supporters. Odd.
