Greatest footballer (soccer) Pele or Maradona? Or any other you decide.Page 7 of 12    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12)

Pele never played in Europe though.
Would like to see him play againt Euro defences every week.

Shame for the 1970 world cup, but ah well.



Actually Pele played in first world cup at 17 in Europe, against Euro defense. In 66' he played in England as well, against Euro defense, did well untill the Portuguese coach demanded that his purposely hurt Pele and put him out of comission.

Your facts sir, are not correct.

Todays players, yes are way faster, stronger and athletically inclined to beat the masters of the past. Team against team yes. but what if you put "man vs man"? Player from the past vs player of today? Just two men at it with a soccer ball? Think about it? Would your answer be the same?

Peace.

Pele was the best...until he was quoted as saying a few years ago that:

"Mia Hamm is the best player, ever. Male or Female. Just a joy to watch".

I totally agree. Mia could teach a lot of men soccer players a thing or two about the proper way the game should be played. What a special athlete she was.

Ok so he played 2 tournaments in Europe.
How many games were against top opposition and top defences?
Both times he was in great teams too.

Pele with Diego Maradona a close second.

I still admire that goal Maradona scored against England, no not the hand of god, but the one where took on our defenders.

Pele was just a football god. Master.

Deep laying forward who could do it all.

Neither

Graucho or whatever his name was.
He was a Brasilian that was before Pele's time.

George Best. If he had played international football for one of the top nations instead of Northern Ireland he would have been recognised more.

I believe the greatest footballer must combine the elements of courage, leadership, ball delivering, scoring and winning therefore
I vote for Joe Montana, footballer for the San Francisco 49ers.

Zidane could headbutt peoples' chests better than anyone I've ever seen. Perfect form to the breast bone.

how about none? football,*ahem* soccer is a boring sport. score is always under 3 or 4. if the score is in the 100 digit range I may watch it and give my car and motorcycle and furniture away for free when it does happen.

and why is it that your dear NFL has high scoring? because 1 touchdown counts for 7 points, etc

football really does not have low scoring but 1 goal counts for 1!

and if you find it boring or do not have something to comment upon, then please do not post on this thread.
