Greatest Players of all-time IMO

1. Maradona why is Maradona the best?
Maradona won the 1986 World Cup almost alone and took Argentina to the final four years later. also won with Napoli two Italian titles the only theyve got. Maradona was controversially voted best player of all time in an internet poll held by FIFA.He was the best ever dribbler of the bal. He proved it, when he scored the greatest ever goal in 1986 and also his famous "Hand of god" is arguably the best goal has ever made by cheating, lol j/k
Argentina
1x World Champion (1986)
Napoli
1x UEFA-Cup (1989)2x Italian Champion (1987, 1990)1x Italian Cup (1987)1x Italian Super Cup (1991)
Barcelona
1x Spanish Cup (1983)1x Spanish League Cup (1982)1x Spanish Super Cup (1983)
Boca Juniors
1x Argentinean Champion (1981)
And also
5x South American Footballer of the Year (1979, '86, '89, '90, '92)3x Top scorer Argentine League (1979, 1980, 1981)1x Top scorer Italian League (1988)

2. Pele
3. Johan Cruyff
4. Beckenbauer
5. Michael Platini
6. George Best
7. Eusebio
8. Zinedine Zidane
9. Di Stefano
10. Ronaldinho

The greatest football player in my opinion it's Pele.He was a pure beast.Pele played couple of positions and he was the reason why the playmaker position was created.Pele had excellent technique and natural athleticsm and during his playing years he was renowned for his excellent dribbling and passing, his pace, powerful shot, exceptional heading ability, and prolific goalscoring.The guy was the greatest scorer,had the best tecnique and was the best skilled player of all time.He made football what is it today... and he has so many great individual acomplsihments.Hats down,to the best

#2 Maradona-A mix of great all around game and best dribbling skills ever
#3 Franc Beckenbauwer-A defender who revulunaized tackling/defending 1 on 1 vs top scorers/scoring with head and was capable of beeing a playmaker too.A beast and has so many acomplishments,the greatest defender ever
#4 Franco Baresi-He was the first great Italian defender,so many great acomplishments and very close to Beckenbauwer in terms of defense
#5 Zidadine Zidane
#6 Euesbio
#7 Ferenc Puskin
#8 George Best
#9 Michel Platini
#10 Zico

Here's mine


1.Pele-He is the all-time leading scorer of the Brazil national football team and is the only footballer to be a part of three World Cup-winning teams. In 1962 he was on the Brazilian squad at the start of the World Cup but because of an injury suffered in the second match, he wasn't able to play the remainder of the tournament. In November 2007 FIFA announced that he would be awarded the 1962 medal retroactively, making him the only player in the world to have three World Cup winning medals.

Since his retirement in 1977, Pelé has been a worldwide ambassador for football and has undertaken various acting roles and commercial ventures.

2.Diego Maradona-Over the course of his professional club career Maradona played for Argentinos Juniors, Boca Juniors, Barcelona, Newell's Old Boys and Napoli, setting world-record contract fees. In his international career, playing for Argentina, he earned 91 caps and scored 34 goals. He played in four FIFA World Cup tournaments, including the 1986 World Cup where he captained Argentina and led them to their victory over West Germany in the final, winning the Golden Ball award as the tournament's best player. In that same tournament's quarter-final round he scored two goals in a 2-1 victory over England that entered soccer history, though for two very different reasons. The first goal was an unpenalized handball known as the "Hand of God", while the second goal was a spectacular 60-metre weave through six England players, commonly referred to as "The Goal of the Century".


3.Beckenbauer

4.Cruyff
5.Di Stefano

6.Puskas

7.Platini

8.Eusebio

9.Best

10.Zidane

Yeah...to many hard to pick of.

#1 and #2 are easy but the rest is so freaking hard :S

I mean,i put 2 Ac Milan players in that list cheers we're beasts Very Happy

The hardest choice was between Euesbio,Puskin and Di Stefano for me

Beckenbauwer and Baresi deserved to be members of this list even thought they are defenders

I think that The England Barclays Premier League is the best because there are a lots of team that can win the championship this year.Like Tot'ham,Aston Villa.They are the new teams in the top of the PRemier League.In Spanish everyone knows that Real and Barca are going to be the forst and second by maybe 20 points ahead of the 3rd team.

Spainish Premira is the best,most people watch it and this league has by far the most expensive teams,best players in soccer etc

And i disagree that the most competitive league is the Barclas Premier League.That thing has to belong to the Bundes League for sure.Bayern Minchen is the best team from Germany looking at their success in National Championships and Champions League Thropheys however some teams in this case like Wolfsburg maneged to pull them selves from beeing like 5-6 years ago from the botto, to champions.If they can do that,so can the others....
