Pele was a master in his craft i stood in the Pele museum in Brazil watching videos of him playing and cried buckets  He was a genius, a simple man and he gave so much back to his countrymen

Why? To me it’s about as enjoyable as watching a John Aldridge warm up video - both cunts.

There’s one bitter red on here. No doubt he joins in with the “Argentina” chants at O.T. (If he’s ever been) Man U fans were hated by all other fans of English clubs when they used to show up at Engla

Always interesting at times like this re the comments about the greatest ever etc.. I happen to believe that he was - equally with Pele.

My old man used to rave about Hidkeguti, Puskas, Di Stefano etc. but ultimately conceded that Pele and Maradona were in a different higher league.

CR7, Messi etc. probably in the same group as Puskas etc. Shame Maradona will mostly be remembered for the ultimate cheat in the biggest showpiece football tournament in the world.

Aldridge wouldn’t be fit to lace his boots 

Maradona cheated

Ronaldo is a bit of a cunt

Henry cheated 

Zidane had a temper

Bur they were all absolute geniuses. If footbalL had a Mount Rushmore Maradona would be on it, cheat or not he was one of the greatest

I never considered him as the greatest, he was before my time, but the points about dragging Napoli and Argentina to the top almost singlehandedly are excellent ones. 

 

I think I'd still have C. Ronaldo as the best, the longevity, athleticism and consistency are hard to look past. Maradona up there just behind with Pele, Messi and Zidane though.

Though I'd pop Talksport on, no sooner had i done that Jim White called him "Maragoner".

Reminder to everyone that Jim White is a cunt and had a countdown for us and Bury going bust. The man is a monumental cunt. 
 

Anyways, bit of Maradona trivia, he’s the only man in World Cup history to be involved in ten goals in one World Cup. The 86, 5 goals 5 assists, one World Cup Trophy.

You don’t consider Ronaldo close to Messi?

Messi is far superior in teamplay, creativity and assisting along with his dribbling and set peices imo.

Ronaldo is exceptional, unreal. But I think Messi is on another level to anyone.

It's all subjective, some may prefer Ronaldo's style over Messi and some may not see Messi as the GOAT because he's yet to win a World Cup, Higuain could have changed some views had he had his finishing boots on in the final vs Germany, but taking away team honours and judging a player purely on ability, I only see Maradona who's close to Messi.

Could easily be doing Pele an injustice too not mentioning him.

Despicable cheating Argie cuntdwarf, but amazing footballer.

Ronaldo & Messi are doing it in teams full of superstars on good pitches in times where tackling is frowned upon.

Maradona played on some crap pitches and had lumps kicked out of him whilst dragging Napoli to great things.

Was watching some clips of him yesterday when he was at Napoli and the amount of two footed tackles from behind he had to put up with was a sight to behold. Can only imagine the damage he would have done in today's non-contact game.

Would have to agree with you there.

If we're not counting the 13 goals Juste Fontaine scored in the 58 tournament or the 10 Muller scored in 70 then he might be

Eusebio scored 9 in 1966, they got to semis so he probably set up a few as well.

I'm chucking George best in the mix

Unpopular opinion i imagine

He didn't play on a fucking lawn every week

There’s a goal where it seems like he beats every man twice and I can only assume the pitch had a mole problem and still smashes it in

Certainly the best British player ever imo. 

He pissed me off once though on soccer Saturday when Jeff Stelling  asked him about the outcome of the Bolton v Coventry game and he replied, "who cares" at which the panel started chuckling.
