MC RISK77

Channel 4 9pm tonight

Recommended Posts

I have not watched this yet but looking forward to this one.

For me he is the greatest footballer of all time flawed as he was.

Think this film is about his time in Naples.

Just thought I would share if anyone else fancies watching.

Yep, he’s my favourite as well, despite that ‘goal’.  Maybe it’s a generation thing but 86 is the first World Cup I remember and he was obviously the stand out player by a million miles.  Cried after the quarters but still loved him for some reason. Incredible player and life story.  Supposed to be a great doc so cheers for the heads up.

The 86 game against England summed up the man's entire career. 

From the hand ball goal to one of the greatest goals scored by any player, certainly by any player at a world cup, all in the same match.

I still reckon that second goal was a Terry Butcher OG ...😄

A couple of months ago, I bought this on Sky Store, I can thoroughly recommend watching it. Whatever your opinion of him, his time in Naples, and his performance at the 1986 World Cup were truly remarkable.

Its a great documentary and a great insight to a footballing genius.

I have disliked Maradona since i was a young lad in 86 despite his undoubted greatness but this movie actually made me feel a bit sorry for him....crazy life.

Set to record.

Over the last two nights on itv, there has been “when English clubs ruled europe”, tracking the period of late 70s / early 80s when English clubs won 7 out of 8 years.

Sure it will be on catchup / itv hub.

I had always said maradona but back in those days it was rare to see him play on tv unless it was world cups etc,it never seemed like he had a bad game over here to us but he must of,now with Messi you can see him pretty much every game so when he has a shocker we all see it but those are rare days so I would say he’s probably the best of all time

Do you think the picking of your most ever favourite player is influenced by the position you played in for your team at whatever level that was. Always being in defence, wing half ( one for the old uns ), or back four my favourites are Moore, Beckenbauer, Maldini etc.

Yeah I definitely think that, I love all the classic number 10’s the scorer of great goals while creating as well my all times list of favourite players in my lifetime are

Maradona

Baggio

bergkamp

messi

ronaldihno

Clearly not for me, as a left-footed clumsy, f>ckwit of zero ability generally stuck at right back to keep out of the way and out of trouble, I'd plump for Maradona as the best ever.

Interesting comment because that’s how I feel about the recent Tyson Fury documentary but he’s a real cheat compared to Maradona

Thanks for the heads up.  I was expecting a pretty boring evening, but at least have an interesting film to look forward to.

OK, it's not MOTD or the Quest football show, but it has to be better than Mrs Brown's boys.

If Lineker had done the same thing up the other end, he would have been an English national hero!

Well at least one newspaper would have.

There would be at least one national newspaper demanding an apology from GL and that he would have to say he had brought the game into disrepute.

Another paper would want to do a survey (via phone lines) that we should demand the game is replayed.

Another paper would state we forfeit the game whilst at least one newspaper would suggest that this is what Corporal Jones would've done as they don't like it uppem.

One newspaper would ignore all the brewhaha and feature Samantha Fox instead.

Yeah my love was massively based upon that tournament to be fair. I was 8 at the time and I guess it coincided with starting to be able to start to understand the game a bit better whilst still being naive to a great deal of it still, and his skill just blew me away.  I was obsessed, despite the tears!  Didn’t get to watch him live much else apart from the subsequent world cups where he was nowhere near his ‘86 level but his spirit, his rise from poverty, his ‘f you’ attitude and his skill just make him my favourite overseas player ever.  
I just can’t get into Messi at all for some reason. Undoubtedly incredible player,  and when the best ex-players like Lineker et al say he’s the best then you can’t argue, but I’ve always been a Ronaldo man in that argument. Guess I just love the emotional as opposed to the clinical overall.

Interesting that players like Hodge and Steven, v.good club players, but with Reid freeing Hoddle it was a “team selection” fully of energy.

Guessing you mean Ronaldo mk 2. I agree, in a straight choice between him and Messi, I'd take him every time.

But, would take Barca era/1st Inter season Ronaldo mk 1 over either of them.

Ronaldo is incredible let’s be honest,he hasn’t got the natural talent that a maradona or messi had but he worked hard at his overall game and deserves everything he has earned,also while messi has stayed at one club in a 2 club league Ronaldo has tested himself around Europe and won numerous leagues,damn I’m even doubting my first post now 😀

He dragged the team to that victory no doubt but it was still a decent team which Messi and Ronaldo could never do but does winning a World Cup mean you are the greatest because the likes of let’s say George Best would never had the chance with a bag of spanner’s playing alongside him

Certainly agree that winning a world cup doesn't mean you're the greatest ever, as you say would then drop Best, Cruyff, Di Stefano, Weah, etc below the true stars like Guivrache and Djemba Djemba. Pic was more a response to Bat's assertion that Messi does everything Maradona did and then some.

Yep, again a far more ‘romantic’ player I agree. Incredible talent. Amazing at  PSV as well. The shock and furore when he was supposed to miss the ‘98 final says it all. I’d still go CR overall though. Just....Romario might beat both of them though!

But Messi freezes on the big stage of national matches. I think that tilts it away from Messi myself. I am not convinced Maradona is the best ever though. Pele, Garincha, Falcao, Best, Cruyff are all up there in their own inimitable way. And a few more too.
