Pele was good, but this is a new age. Ronaldo would have to get my vote on best player in the world for the previous generation.

On a different note everyone's pretty good with women when it comes to hookers... well except the sham-wow guy.

Boniek was a Polish striker who played in the mid 1980s. He scored a few goals in the 1986 World Cup and also played for Juventus.

Zbigniew Boniek, here's more about him:

Zbigniew Boniek (IPA: ['zbigɲɛf 'bɔɲɛk]) (born March 3, 1956 in Bydgoszcz) is a famous Polish football player. He first played at Zawisza Bydgoszcz, later at Widzew Łódź. He was named by Pelé as one of the 125 Greatest Living Footballers.

In 1982 he transferred to Juventus, thus becoming the first Polish football player to play in one of Europe's major leagues. He won a bronze medal (third place) at soccer's World Cup (1982), Cup Winners' Cup (1984), European Super Cup (1984) and European Cup (1985).

He scored 24 goals in 80 matches for the Polish national team. After finishing his professional career at A.S. Roma in 1988 he had a successful business career.

The Juventus president nicknamed him Bello di notte ("Beauty at night") because of his performance at evening matches.

Zbigniew “Zibi” Boniek, born in Bydgoszcz, is one of the greatest Eastern European players ever. He started his career in his birthtown club Zawisza before moving to one of the great Polish clubs, Widzew Lodz. Boniek was included in Poland’s 1978 World Cup squad as a 22-year-old and impressed many with his tireless running and commitment. Poland reached the second phase before being knocked out by Brazil and eventual winners Argentina.

Four years later in Spain, Poland had a better team and Boniek was excellent as his country won bronzemedals. Arguably his best performance of his career for Poland came in a second phase match against Belgium where he scored a magnificent hat-trick. One of the best hat-tricks in World Cup history. Unfortunately he was suspended in the semifinal against Italy, but he was back at his best when Poland beat France in the bronzematch. Zibi was definitely one of the greatest stars in the tournament and appeared on many “Dreamteams” in papers and magazines in the wake of the World Cup.

Boniek took the big step to the Italian Serie A before the start of the 1982/83 season. Along with fellow newcomer Michel Platini and World Cup winning hero Paolo Rossi, Zibi formed a deadly attack in Juventus which would conquer Italian, European and world soccer. The team won the league and cup in Italy plus the Cupwinner’s Cup (1984), European Supercup (1984) and European Cup in the tragic Heysel final in 1985, all in the space of three seasons. President Agnelli nicknamed him “Bello di Notte” (Night Beauty) as he always seemed to play his best during evening matches.

Zibi left Juve a year before the 1986 World Cup and joined AS Roma where he won another Italian Cup winner’s medal. He now operated deeper and played as a sweeper for the Polish team in the Mexico World Cup. Poland, not anywhere near the force they were in 82 or 74, reached the second round, but lost heavily to Brazil. Today Zbigniew Boniek works as a commentator for a TV channel in Poland.




There's info about Zibi.
