youre allowed to do what you want. and its not that hard to get betacam tapes of the portugese league in the 1950s. i'm just saying, i dont believe nickko has done that. i dont believe he's seen puskas actually play. or esubio. so why is he including them in HIS top ten players of all time list? neither of us have seen them play. so why would we put them in our top ten lists? is it just to come across as some sort of TWG elitist wanker? wouldnt it make more sense to compare players that we've actually seen and can have a talk about? or do you just want to pretend to be something youre not?

Would you criticise a 25 year old for saying Maradona is one of the greatest players ever?

have you seen eusebio play? big fan of him and the portugese league back in 1960? fair enough... if not, why are you including him in your list if not to come across as something youre not?

How could they have seen him play at his peak if they were only born in 1987?

He left Napoli in 91, got fat and didn't give a fuck for the rest of his career.

So what if my opinion is based on people that have seen those guys play? Does that still make me an elitist wanker pretending to be something I'm not?

Could someone not form their own opinion through taking onboard what people/ sources/ articles/ videos say? Don't we all do that anyway? Or do we form our opinions in a bubble, without external reference points and influences?

I've a lot of time for George Best, but never saw him play live. My Ma's fella did though and felt physically ill everytime Best lined up against Everton, due to the ability he had to destroy a team single handedly. So, yeah, I'd have Best in the top ten of all time (as would Pele by the way). Sue me.

Napoli 2 - 0 Juventus in the Copa Italia final. First Juve loss of the season and first silverware for Napoli in 22 years.

Montpellier crowned Ligue 1 champions for the first time. It won't get much coverage but thats fucking amazing considering their budget. 5 different Ligue 1 champions in the last 5 seasons.

*cue Rooney best goal of Premier League / general bicycle kick debate

In all seriousness, I've never even watched a full game of Falcao's and the bloke is such a natural finisher. Seems to just score and score and be able to create an opportunity whatever the circumstance.

What are the other parts of his game like other than goal scoring?

Obviously he doesn't do much defending.... his all round game is brilliant though. Times his runs perfectly, amazing header of the ball, positioning is perfect most of the time, strong etc

That video is so good.

Must have made a deal - 'We won't try to win if you let this guy's son score a goal.'

Good sportsmanship all round. Guys shaking hands and high fives.

Is that the Polish League? It looks like a pro league, maybe Russia's second division.

But as someone said, it looks like the defender is going to full out tackle the kid.

What team was leading the EPL with 30 seconds left of the final game of the campaign is probably better imo.






Ouch .

Apparently Wenger is already on the phone to his agent as he's a proven scorer whose age fits in with Arsenal's transfer policy.

^ Just read that all the way through, very very interesting. Had no idea about the Australian Chris Eaton and his involvement with FIFA in all of this. Sad to see him move on really as it seems as if he was the perfect man for the job. Also had no idea about Wilson Raj Perumal. Although he is locked up now, during his reign he pretty much had fixing down pat and it was all too easy. Only his own gambling problems, and a tip off from who he thought was his lieutenant Santia Raj, lead to his demise

I thought the most remarkable bit was the "ghost friendly" - bets placed, result reported, but the game was never played...

Did anyone see the US v. Brazil game the other day? Brazil won 4-1, but based on the highlights it was a pretty good game, with the US hitting the woodwork a lot.
