  1. It would get embarassing for them getting confused as to where Messi is, off scoring a goal whilst they're just trying to still take his legs.
  2. I mentioned 2 defenders. I could name many outstanding defenders in the past 20 years. Netherlands were revolutionary more for how they pressed the opponent from the front and thst is an excellent point, they did revolutionise football in that sense. However, I cannot help but feel the game is totally different today than back then and is a much harder game. Messi would score 100 per season in the 1960s
  3. Yes. He would. He continously got fouled by United last night and ran them ragged. He would have carried on.
  4. That's one defender who was outstanding. As was Beckenbauer. But those two were good footballers, which was rare for defenders back then. However generally defences today are vastly superior to the general defender from back then. Even in City games today, against a well drilled side it can be very hard to break a team down no matter their quality. The Brazil goal was not a good example of it. The Italians simply did not apply any pressure and they were allowed to pass freely across the potch. That would not happen in a World Cup final today at any altitude. A good example of a team building from the back was Barcelona from 2008-2012. Mastered it.
  5. Jeez does no one else think the defenders from the 1960s were just awful? Whenever i've seen ckips its defenders just backing off their opponents and wondering about. Brazil goal vs Italy in 1970. Prime example. Most overrated goal of all time.
  6. He would have struggled. He was unfit and unprofessional. Wouldn't have lasted 30 minutes in todays game. Todays games are 10x quicker, tactically far more advanced and defenders are better because of this. You simply do not see many mavericks at the top level these days. I will add that Pele has to be among the biggest enigmas in Football. I simply dont even include him in my top 50 players of all tome let alone number 1. He would score a goal down the park and count them, and similarly to George Best most of the goals I have seen from him have defenders just wondering around the pitch. Standards have improved, Pele wasn't even Brazil's best player in 1962 world cup, it was Garrincha.
  7. Have no issues with Cardiff staying up if Brighton go down. I find Hughton's tactics are usuly a snooze fest to be honest, as well as he has done at Brighton. Warnock does play a long bal brand but I dont think boring is something you could describe them as, bang unlucky vs Chelsea the other week.
  8. 3 wins including Derby as one of them will see us in the play offs
  9. I think small things would see us improve at home. Widening the pitch is something I have thought about for ages and also location of our singing section. I think sticking some of our fans in a corner of the Atyeo would help generate a better atmosphere. It's no surprise our poor first half performances always come when we are playing towards the away fans. Yhat, or we push away fans into a section of the dolman or Lansdown stand out of the way. Need to be less cautious tactically at home as well. We didnt need 5 defenders on Saturday vs Wigan.
  10. Not even the funniest thing that happened in 2014 to be fair..
  11. I hope Liverpool win the Prem. Sorry to upset the haters. My dislike will always be for Man United and Chelsea in the Premier League and I hope those 2 never win it again.
