Oh my bad!

Didn't know 'bout but I think he would be still great with or without drugs.
The rules of soccer are very simple, basically it is this: if it moves, kick it. If it doesn’t move, kick it until it does.

i think rp was referring to the "hand of god" goal (self proclaimed by the way). not to mention that handball on the goalline against russia (ussr), that put argentina through the group just ahead of russia. combine those major handballs and drugs, and you've got a pretty dirty player. i'm not saying he wasn't great, and he wasn't the SECOND BEST player ever, but i am saying that calling maradona a cheat isn't exactly blasphemy.

Maradona must have had some skill to get there, the man could do things that some only dream of, but he did mess up badly.
FORÇA BARÇA!

I can agree with that one, he messed up badly. He still deserves to keep the title of "one of the best footballers to ever walk the earth".

cause he was a great footballer but he did cheat so there for that makes him 1 .i was refering to the hand of god. And theres nothing wrong in saying he cheated. lack of understanding???????????Theres no doubt about him being a great footballer. Ive seen some good tapes of him and the skill and goals he was capable of

it has to be pele they both won player of the century if i think but marraz was a one man, and your looking for the best PLAYER it think was the name of the thing lol and pele is then the best, and if your looking for footballer it has to be pele as he respected the game and environment he played in , where maradona used is respect to cheat in games and get away with it 'hand of god' also stimulants

i voted cruyff

because he almost completely revolutionised dutch football. before him holland were not a very gd team but since he played they are now a force to be reckoned with

pele was great, but he played in a team full of stars, wheras cruyff at first was not so fortunate

and maradona's entirely self-inflicted reputation made me vote otherwise

also where is puskas? best? charlton? law? dalglish? van basten? platini? baggio?

i think a poll may have been unwise as there are so many players who cd join this debate
