Greatest footballer of all time

Postby vijay92 » Fri Apr 29, 2011 10:17 am

i Just read this from Pele
"For me Pele is the best. Nobody has done more than Pele. He's the only player to be World Champion at 17, winning three World Cups and score over 1,208 goals,"

Pele said that

His stats are great, but I never considered him greatest. I personally think Maradona was the greatest and I also think Messi is on the verge to becoming the greatest. This is about who you think is the greatetst footballer not your favourite footballer of all time

just want to know who you think is the Greatest :?:

Statistically Pele is without a doubt the best. On statistics he is way ahead of Maradona. On skill, I don't think there was too much of a difference.

Messi has a very good chance to join them, he's already achieved so much at such a young age.

Of course, I'm biased towards Maradona. I'm sure most of you know why. :P

Pele never actually played in Europe, so don't consider him the greatest.
There is almost no footage of his games.

I consider Messi to be the second greatest, in this day and age where defence and tactics are key, goals are harder to score. Yet he manages to score 52 (so far) in one season. That's pretty damn remarkable.
Then he has this aura of assuranse around him, when he's on the field teams play better just knowing that Messi is beside them.

Zidane was the greatest. Great awareness, great passes, skilled motivator (see WC 2006), incredible shot, first touch, ball control, dribbles.. You name it, he had it. :mrgreen:

These two are my all time favorites.

Mario Basler? :P

haha no just kidding.IMO Maradona is the best ever. He was one team on his own. He was a driving force.Of course i wasn't even born back then. In my lifetime though, it's definitely Zidane.

Maradona was the best

He single handedly gave Argentina a world cup , while pele had 10 stars with him

also Maradonas dribbling , skill , brilliance and sick moves were amazing

Well correct me if I'm wrong, but are there not 11 men on the pitch, playing in different positions?

Talking about the greatest ever footballer is bullshit. Talking about the greatest ever striker, goalie, etc... that is getting warmer.

Messi is good but until he carries Argentina NT in his shoulders to a WC trophy for me he is nowhere as good as Pele or Maradona...

If I had to choose 1 of those 2 I would say Pele, mostly because I hate Maradona as a person, but skill-wise they are both too skillful to choose between them...

To be the best you have to have class. In AND out of the pitch.

I doubt Maradona qualifies.

Pele? No need to question. Beckenbauer, he did not only have class, he defined it.
