The literal, non-ironic GOAT. All who disagree are just edgy teens.
>>
I didn't see him play,you didn't see him play,no one here saw him play.
My grandfather says he is the best player in history,though he thinks Maradona had more skills.
He also says Messi might pass both of them.
>>
Played in a babby era. Eusebio was just as good if not better, but he wasn't an attention whore.
>>
>>65118744
>>65118756
My grandfather also says he is a piece of shit of a person.
But Messi doesn't seem much better anyway,just has more people telling him how to behave,donating in his name.
>>
>>65118637
Well, except for all those goals he scored while winning three World Cups.

"My name is Ronald Reagan, I’m the President of the United States of America. But you don’t need to introduce yourself, because everyone knows who Pelé is."
>>
In relative terms, the most dominant player ever, playing in the best league of his era.

In absolute terms, greatest player from the invention of football until Maradona, with all the evolution in skills, preparation, fitness and training between them.
>>
Should have won 4 World Cups if they didn't beat the shit out of him and Feola didn't bring a has-been drunk and broken Garrincha in 1966.

Cruyff

Beckenbauer

>"Pele was the most complete player I've ever seen, he had everything. Two good feet. Magic in the air. Quick. Powerful. Could beat people with skill. Could outrun people. Only 5 ft 8 in tall, yet he seemed a giant of an athlete on the pitch. Perfect balance and impossible vision. He was the greatest because he could do anything and everything on a football pitch. I remember Saldhana the coach being asked by a Brazilian journalist who was the best goalkeeper in his squad. He said Pele. The man could play in any position."

Cristiano Ronaldo is young yet, and has many years ahead of himself. But as of now, I do not see anyone who can compare with Pele"

didn't even get a medal for 1962 until 30 years later when FIFA realized that a coke addict was becoming the GOAT.

literally the only reason Pele gets any recognition is because he went to play for the Cosmos, and new york was the center of all media at the time. Brilliant marketing move.

So how the fuck do you explain all these legends >>65119232, you know, people that actually played with Pele, or saw him play, say he was the best?

I swear to God sometimes I think 4chan is the dumbest place on the internet
>>
Best of his generation. I think it's silly to compare players across era's, and to call Pele shit because he's not up to the standards of 50 years after his time is retarded.
>>
>>65118362

Good post
>>
>>65122299

Yeah but this is utter bullshit. IF he was around now he'd be conditioned and coached to today's standards and would still, by logical extension, be as good now as he was then.

What came before is always better than what came after.

BECAUSE PEOPLE OPEN THEIR FUCKING MOUTHS ABOUT ANYONE

DO YOU WANT ME TO PULL OUT SOME QUOTES ABOUT ADU OR OODERGAARD OR ANYTHING OTHER PIECE OF SHIT PLAYER? BECAUSE I PROMISE I CAN FIND SOME "LEGEND" SAY SOMETHING NICE ABOUT SOMEONE WITHOUT MUCH TROUBLE.

HOW ABOUT ALL THE PEOPLE DICKSUCKING BOJAN AFTER HE BROKE MESSI'S YOUTH RECORD? WHAT IS HE DOING NOW?


>Sir Isaac Newton: " George Best is the most dominant player I have ever seen"

must be true

jesus christ you guys got cucked by the media so fucking hard.
not even informed brazilians think pele is the best. even garrincha has more praise for that kiddy fucker.

Not only everything about your post is wrong

>not even informed brazilians think pele is the best. even garrincha has more praise for that kiddy fucker.
Untrue.

The only brazilians who rate Garrincha higher are Botafogo supporters and the ones who can only see the flashy, fancy dribbles and miss how much more complete and efficient Pelé was - the same kind of people who rate Denílson, Robinho, Ganso, Kerlon and the likes. Garrincha was very, very good, top 5 of his era, but not anywhere close to Pelé.

seriously, if you know fuckall about history, just don't post.

Considering all the legends of the game rated him immensely, you have to give him high praise.
Never seen him play outside of clips and a few games though, so I'm not in any position to judge
>>
>>65122813
>amerikeks
You literaly know nothing.

Brazil played poorly in the first 2 games in 58 EXACTLY because Pele and Garrincha didn't play since the coach decided they were too young. You can watch the Final vs Sweden and see for yourself that not only Pelé scored 3 world-class goals, he was also the best player on the pitch as far as movements, passing and skills go. Pelé was already the best player in the world by 59-60.

And in 70 he was literally chosen the best player of the tournament. Jairzinho won the golden boot by feeding off Pelé's assists and defense-sponge. He played so well 45 years later even the chances he MISSED are famous.

Not that you'd know, you're just a memelord spouting opinions you've been told, but who hasn't watched a single full game of an old WC.
>>
>>65118637
Brazilian league was one the best leagues in the world up until the 80s.

did you watch a single game of the world up in 1958?

They're all easily available in torrents and even youtube. 58, 62, 70, 82, I watched them all, and so should anybody.

I posted earlier,my grandpa saw him play.
He says Pele is the best ever,Messi might be challenging him and Maradona had more skills.

Ocasional reminder that Di Stefano was mental when he said those things, about to marry a gold-digger, in a wheel-chair. with his family proving that he was medically almost braind-dead and, what is worst, affiliated to Halal

>amerikeks pt. III

Every single match of the 58 world cup is fully available on the internet.

You literally have no idea what you're talking about.
