Kind of new to soccer.. I hear everyone talk about Messi and Ronaldo being the GOATs, but I just wanted to know where you'd rank this guy
better than ronaldinho, slightly worse than maradona
Best player to ever play the game. Anyone here who says otherwise is either underage or is being contrarian to sound like hes 2deep5u and knows a lot about "soccer"
Only Ronaldo Phenomeno is close
>all these people not rating Zidane because of a Real Madrid hate boner
Modern football, 92-onwards:
You could've been the chosen one:
Romário, Van Basten, Laudrup, Rivaldo, Baresi, Maldini, Redondo, Buffon, Xavi-Iniesta-Biscuits together, not Matthaus because he was already old
Figo, Baggio, Ronaldinho, Zidane, Donaldo, Totti, Del Piero, Nedved, Kaká, Davids, Thiago Silva (haters gonna hate, best defender of the current generation), Ibrahimovic, Henry, Bergkamp, Batistuta, van Nistelrooy, Gamarra, Chilavert, Schmeichel, Kahn, Roberto Carlos, Nesta, Cannavaro, Thuram, Cafu, Zanetti, Suárez, Xavi-Iniesta-Biscuits individually, maybe Nerman/Neuer/Verratti/Muller/Pogba one day
so many, Rppney, Weah, Eto'o Pirlo, Scholes, Giggs, Beckham, Drogba, Djalminha, Pires, Deschamps, Simeone, DiMaría, Edmundo, Blanc, Ferdinand, Makelele, Villa, Emerson, Gilberto Silva, Xabi Alonso, Rui Costa, Verón, Gerrard, Lampard, Cambiasso, Thiago Mota, Modric, Rakitic, Vieira, Puyol, Mascherano, Crespo, Élber, Scholl, Salihamidzic, Shevchenko, Tévez, Suker, Viero, Stoichkov, Aguero, Lewandowski, Larsson, Asprilla, benzema, Cantona, Salas, van Persie, Raúl, Papin, Boban, Prosinecki, Djorkaeff, Lúcio, Samuel, greatness may vary
Seems good, but despite the hate I have for the guy, Penaldo really should be in the GOAT category. His goal tally, penaltys and all, is something not see in Europe since the days after WW2. Since he is so easily hateable and shares his era with Messi he doesn't shine that much, but in any other time he would have been a GOAT
Wow, really good list. Though you need to get Nistelrooy down to greats, Cantona up to legend, Baresi in the "already old", and get Suarez down to greats - he still have to play at top level a few more seasons. Also get fucking Rijkaard and Gullit in there, somewhere between GOAT and legend. Also bump donaldo up a tier
>le total of 2 (TWO) highlight black and white, grainy videos who show absolutely NOTHING about their skill, not to mention one of them played his entire career in fucking Brazil and has been proven that the number of goals he scored is WAY lower than reported meme
I don't mind when people question Pele but people talking shit about Maradona or Cryuff can fuck off. They changed how the game was played and in Maradona's case, did it whilst on a fuckton of coke.
