Falcao attack the content of her post but not her person. She didnt ask about why you came on this site and she didnt try to say that you are not a good football player. She wasn't insulting or belittling you she was just telling you to edit your posts instead of writing 4 in a row. Even though she may have seemed annoyed, she has a point. There was no need to belittle her. Its better to be against what the person said instead of saying shes a little 12 year old.

even juggle to 100. you call that football players?

like i said, maradona got voted as best football player of all time in
Rome 2000. i know my stuff, i play top league in norway.

and Soccer4Life, im not trying to convince people. i don't use my time to type
a long text just to convince some newbeginners.
i didn't come on this site to get help with soccer, i have played since i was
5 years old. but if i never came on this site i wouldent of got the email and number to liverpool.

bringing the forum back on topic I think Maradona was the best of all time simply because he could tear European defences apart single-handedly. However, George Best deserves a mention. Apparently just before he died Pele gave him a signed ball saying "From the second greatest player ever" Duncan Edwards would have been one of the best of all time if it hadn't been for Munich and the late Puskas was also a legend.

How any player who was thrown out of a world cup for failing a drugs test can be described as the greatest player of all time is beyond my comprehension.

I think Pele was the best player ever but I would have loved to see Johan Cruyff and the Dutch play Total Football. If there is a player I would have liked to see play it would have been Cruyff.

I think I can sum this up:
Maradona-good
Pele-better
George Best :lol:

Need I say more?

Best could have been THE absolute greatest had he not let booze, drugs, and women get the best of him (no pun intended). But he was still the heartbeat of a club that was returning to it's former glory. Without him The Reds may not be what they are today.

I went with Maradona. Some one on a previous post said:
"He was suspended for using a banned substance called ephedrine. Ephedrine in combination with caffeine has been shown to promote fat loss, and muscle gain. So yes it is considered performance enhancing."

Epherdrine is a stimulant and can be used to supress hunger. However, caffeine, adrenaline, and fear are chemical stimulants as well. Something that promotes fat loss and muscle gain is not necessarily a performance enhancer. Protein does such and is a far cry from anabolic steroids.
