Diego Maradona

Anyone else see "when Lineker met maradona" last night.

Bono got a mention.

He said that when he and his daughters met Bono, he complimented them on their English.




Maradona - the man us English love to hate and hate to love.

He was a very good player , wouldn't say great , I would say that he was in the level of Cruyff or Platini for example , but for instance he's no match compared with the brazilians , besides he's has done so many bullshits in life , and I'm not talking' bout drugs.

Doesn't matter about his personal life.
If we are talking football the man was a genious. Better than Cruyff & Platini.
The only Brazilian that you could compare to Maradona is Pele.

MMm not only Pele I would say , but also Garrincha and Zico perhaps , and nowadays Ronaldinho , and the last one is not only good with one leg , Maradona wasn't very good with his right leg.

Edit.: I think if this thread goes on like this , will be moved.

To knock Diego Maradonna for his politics or position in the hall of football greats is sacralidge. (hope i spellt that right) The greatest footballer bar none, EVER!!
P.S Castro and Chavez are cool in my book too.

It's clear that every single people that say "Maradona is the number one, D10S, etc" haven't seen a single video of Pelé or Johan Cruyff Not only in the past, nowadays Ronaldinho is better than what was Maradona.

Maradona had talent, that's something beyond discussion ... but ... how much of his playing was because of cocaine and other drugs? do you remember the Napoli times?. It's widespread that the team changed his exams after the matches... he gave great moments to the football history ... but ... at the same time, he brought the dark side of lies, manipulation, drugs, traffic, etc

Maradona only had ONE golden World cup - Mexico 86 - in Italy 90 he was only a shadow of his former glory, and in USA 94 he was just a joke, and when he scored the goal against Greece and he went to that camera to celebrate, it was clear he was completely stoned !. In Europe he was fantastic until the mid 80s, then in the whole 90s he was NOTHING, even when he returned to Argentina he was something like Fat Elvis. Even in Boca Juniors - his loved football team - the fans didn't like him at the end because he was SO FAT, he didn't go to the practices and he couldn't play even 30 minutes on the field... he was (is?) just a drug addict...

That's the reason why many people - outside Argentina, of course - call him MARADROGA instead


Finally, Pelé or Cruyff would never appear in a commercial with Argentinian or German T-shirt that's a whole lack of respect to the devoted Argentinian fans

overrated drug abuser if you ask me. if you pumped me full of all the chemicals he was on i could jump higher than peter shilton and punch a football.

totally overrated as a player and his other goal against England in 86 still looks to me like a terry fenwick own goal!
