  1. Well I think the last 3 or so years were the thin support then

  2. Lol. Red Devils through thick and thin. Fergie won me over but they’re still in my system.

  3. Trying to recall when lasana talk about Manure so much. I knew he supported them way back when Veron played…….

  4. Brian your trophies are 4th place and that infamous 10 your get

  5. Dearie me. Don’t this to yourself Brian Jordan! Hahaha. Since Arsenal won the FA Cup in 2015, Man U lifted the FA Cup in 2016 and League Cup in 2017.

  6. I thought you were going to compliment our unbeaten run for a second there Shawn. Lol.

  7. Man u just broke Wigan’s record for been in the same position for the most number of days which is sixth

  8. I hope Chelsea destroys Man U in the FA Cup. So there.

  9. Thanks eh Lasana. Man calling out my pain boldface so yes. Steups. Kronke and Wenger have to go.

  10. We were FA cup winners recently as well eh

  11. Lol. Well Brian, Old Trafford paraded trophies quite recently and we just added another eh. You real prize earning the right to be mauled by foreign clubs boi! 🙂

  12. Been waiting for 3 years to see Man U in CL, so hopefully, that too is temporary..

  13. I would rather be at the Emirates going through this temporary pain than be at Old Trafford eh..

  14. Walcott deserved a penalty

    Maybe the game would have been diff

  15. There was a case in.the U.S. fairly recently where the ppl who voted on a particular issue stood to benefit they ended up having to pay. And yes, the decision makers in the Clico issue stood to benefit but there was no conflict of interest…not so? Lol

  16. ..The Grinch. Guessing as usual and depending on the players to save his bacon..

  17. Tge defenders of today are poor quality….lol

  18. Dude what a goddamn great article. ….. I wanna scream it to the world when I read this. Only one blemish
    ..in the world cup semi it was Edgar Davids “le terrible” who made the recovery tackle …only a defensive demon could slow an offensive god …. Deboe was still stuck in traffic lol…..great freaking read!!! Ah sharing this !!

  19. And the reason for that is because the rules of engagement for them change many moons ago eh. Them really good yes

  20. the defenders these days are of very poor quality not like the bruisers of the past it would have been very difficult for players like messi and cr7 to have played a whole season

  21. Lol. I have no problem with people sticking to Pele. Just I’m asking for them to back up their claims. Point to the minutes in 90 minute games that prove it. I can show you with the other greats.

  22. ….and when people stick to Pele…..its because Pele is a a religion. SMH.

  23. Lawd lasana!! Can’t win with you and your Messi!! If Messi do a murder and 2 million ppl witness it you will say it wasn’t him.. Geez an ages!

  24. It is more protected now and not as violent. And violent players are punished. But it is a stretch to say Messi hasn’t been chopped or treated to some criminal tackles himself.

  25. Lasana..some small clips are not enough..it’s known universally that today’s game is far softer and attacking players are protected

  26. Messi was not chopped down or roughed up? Let me help you there Kello

  27. There are no pure defenders in today’s game.. Take some hours everyday and watch the tackles Maradona, Pele endured.. It’s ridiculous! You will never see Messi chopped down.. Not in today’s game.. Messi is great.. Great player! Not at the level of Maradona or Pele.. Even the mental and leadership side Messi falls short.. He lacks Maradona’s presence.. There is nothing Messi could do that Maradona couldn’t do.. Not a thing.. But Maradona Willed a team to become World champions and he transformed Napoli almost singlehandedly.. Well.. Pele is Pele..

  28. I live football., do crazy analysis and many are brainwashed by the many times some commentators talk about the greatness of today’s players.. I wonder if people remember.. Brehme, Scirea, Amoros, Batiston, Dassaev, Pfaff, Baresi, Boniek, Hagi.. Great great players.. Great!

  29. Hungary lost the 1954 World Cup Final to West Germany. Was the German side “greater” than the Mighty Magyars? N.O.

    Great sides lose championship games sometimes. Ask Holland 1974.

  30. Shaun.. If he is better.. It’s MARGINAL

  31. Lasana Liburd I was referring to the comment by someone that somewhat ridiculed the Brazilian/South American leagues back then

  32. Platini better than Zidane? .

    Only in the bribery and kickback world

  33. Was Zidane better than Platini? I saw Platimi and he was no joke.. Midfield general and a far better goalscorer than Zidane.. Was also the best free kick specialist of his generation.. Alongside Zico. People have short memories and they’re hypnotised by the present superstars who play in a era when you could blow a kiss and it’s a foul. Messi better than Maradona? What era or what damn year.. Maradona is the most gifted player to have walked this earth and WILL score 50-60 goals a season in this day and age.. Which defence would stop Maradona? Christiano Ronaldo? He is one of the greatest goal scorers but his all round game is found wanting at times.. This last euro he was so average; hopelessly greedy..

  34. Ok. Santos got two finals while Pele was there and they won both. Estudiantes got to three finals in a row in the 1960s and Penarol got to three and won two.
    So won’t you say Penarol’s success eclipsed Santos? And in the 1960s when Pele was at his best, Argentina clubs got to five World Cup championship finals and Uruguay clubs got to three.
    So based on that, Pele’s Santos was definitely not the best in the world for that period unless you restrict it to only between 1962 and 1963.

  35. World Club champions Lasana Liburd

  36. Kelvin Jack, on what evidence do you say that Pele’s Santos was the best team in the world?

  37. Ronaldo obviously was just an outrageous talent.. Just supremely gifted. But there are some who question Pele’s greatness. Listen guys..the greats, Beckenbauer, Eusebio, Cruyff, Moore, Zagalo… I can go on and on. Like Ronaldo.. Pele would score a huge amount of goals in today’s game.. Also.. Someone mentioned Pele didn’t play in the top leagues.. I’m sorry but that’s nonsense. He later in the league in the country who were the undisputed champions of football. Santos at that time was the worlds greatest club side. Some people are clouded by the players of today, many of whom that are bang average.

  38. I was lucky too see all the greats of the last era and the current one play live in competitive matches.
    Messi accomplished the most. But to be honest, the Brazilian Ronaldo was the most electric.

  39. Il Fenômeno.
    …let us bow our heads…

  40. But Kelvin Jack if you really know your football history eh, most of those nowadays players especially some people that we know football God Messi wouldn’t have lasted in the days of the greatest football player in the universe and others because anything was accepted with respect to the tackles by some of the most brutal defenders that existed until the rules was charged to protect these nowadays professional players and the owners of the professional teams investments. Them really good yes

  41. Garrincha is probably the greatest match-winner in the game’s history. Once he was fit and his head was in the right place, teams he played for were almost unbeatable – in the games where he and Pele played together, Brazil NEVER lost.

  42. Ronaldo is without question the most devastating striker of the last 40 years.. No one can compare. People say you can’t compare generations.. That’s rubbish. Stevie Wonder could see that in today’s game he would score 50 goals a season in La liga and maybe close to 60 in the Premier League. THATS NOT AN EXAGGERATION

  43. Alyuh make certain that alyuh attend Mr Live Wire football festival in January eh, ah coming with meh flat screen TV and video and when alyuh see some of the other videos that I have with my greatest player in the universe eh, alyuh will hold alyuh heads and bawl eh, and I hope that Mr Ambassador will be there also and don’t forget to walk with your boots eh Dr Amery Browne hahaha

  44. And that is the problem with alyuh nowadays folks eh, and that is to bad. Alyuh really good yes hahahaaha

  45. I’ve never had the pleasure to see them play in the flesh but the above-mentioned are the greatest of all time regardless of how you rank them.

    What’s even more amazing is that Pele has often said that there’d have been no Pele without Garrincha.

  46. Ronaldo is the greatest ever… I’ve never seen Pele play live… It’s always been tapes… I’ve seen Maradonna though… And I have NEVER seen a player like Ronaldo. As good as Pele and Maradonna were… Neither was called ‘El Phenomeno’

  47. Ronaldo greater than who eh, look alyuh try alyuh best eh, he couldn’t even fit in the shoes of my two greatest Brazilians. Them really good yes

  48. Could someone explain to my why Pele is considered the greatest?
    3 WC titles?
    He never played I the best leagues in the world. ..in fact it is alleged when he was approaching 1000 goals opposing teams use to give him a blye and let him score
    3. Whereas we would have seen Ronaldo live…week in week out..who has really seen 10 games. ..10 whole games of Pele?
    I agree…ronaldo is brasil greatest ever
    Most just parrot Pele because well…their father said so… whose uncle said so…neither having actually see 5pele games

  49. The scary thing about ronaldo is that he accomplished all he did with career ending injuries. If you take those injuries out of the equation, the heights this man would have climbed. He did not win a champions league medal but 2 world cups would suffice I guress

  50. he was a phenom barring injury he would have been even greater

  51. I have always said that the greatest even goes in this order 1) the real Ronaldo 2) king Pele 3) the Don Diego 4) Messi and 5) Zidane. Messi is not even d greatest in his own country!!

  52. Lasana,when he was young and dangerous he was not fat…Sir Alex damn fast with that comment….as for his greatness he is one of Brazil’s greatest….we spend too much time studying who is the greatest .. my opinion….

  53. I cannot deny genius. He was Brazil’s greatest ever player. 🙂

  54. My husband and I had this exact conversation tonight. His mental record of football is better than mines. He provided the exact stays and more. I still don’t think a penalty kick can define Messi. Media is a great player. Most great ppl fail at important times to recover again. You know the other player who missed did not get hurl before public opinion who is to say if he got it right the next Chile player won’t have miss. . .but that’s what happens when you are grate, the world judge you more harshly. He is still a grate player of not the greatest and time is still in his side to do so.

  55. Great article Joel Leach Hanna Sukhu-Maharaj

  56. “The vast majority of lives, in football and elsewhere, end in failure.”

    What an opening?

  57. Lol. Like Ramesh? They have to be sure he won’t mash up their party first.

  58. Too bad he cannot get into Trinidad politics where disloyalty to your current party is rewarded by rival parties…

  59. Guess foot-in-mouth disease is often fatal to public careers!

  60. I don’t expect the TTFA can afford to pay his version of minimum wage! Lol

  61. that is a touchy one to me..cause that look bought ..anyone cud say what they say!! but that CL was Bought …No way Bayern with how the was playing go in to that final an throw away goals so..an flop hard!!

  62. Lasana – when you said Pep created a style, I almost choked laughing. What exact changes did Pep make in comparison to Barcelona of the past? There was certainly a change of personnel which by default alters how a system is implemented to take advantage of their strengths. But explain to me the tactical changes Pep made to the Barcelona way that began with Cryuff.

  63. How do people rate di mateo winning the CL with Chelsea ?

  64. Lasana Liburd well said, could not agree more, and ronaldo was still playing fantastic football at that time

  65. Kendall, here is another difference. Jose won a title with Porto. Pep created a revolution with Barca that spawned a way of playing that teams and countries tried to emulate.
    Not that he created the style from scratch but he made some notable modifications.
    All the same, I agree that it was some feat for Jose to win the Champions League with Porto. No question.

  66. I am still in mourning that Perez fired Carlo.

  67. It takes great man management skills to handle a team of superstars. Pep certainly has that as does Anchelotti. Having the best players still requires knitting them into a coherent unit.

  68. ..I hear you. MY comment was not a response to yours. LOL..

  69. There is no denying that clubs that can afford the best players dominate their respective leagues.

    I didn’t dismiss Pep’s achievement at Barcelona. What I am saying is that the core of that team was already there and he had the resources to get whatever players he wanted.

    In contrast, Porto achieved a level of success with Jose with far less resources and with players who weren’t global superstars at the time.

    That’s why I rate what Jose did at Porto so highly.

  70. ..People who don’t really understand football and, moreso, coaching, assume that money guarantees success. I can only conclude this based on the commentary. You still have plenty work to do even when you have the biggest budget. People also let their likes and dislikes get in the way of fundamental respect for other people’s achievements..

  71. However look at it is certain clubs he moves back an forth to an look at the pattern of his team building big spending .

  72. Pep improved Barcelona though. The club was dipping and he cleared out top players like Ronaldinho and Deco and later Eto’o, Henry and Yaya and created a machine.
    I agree that I would like to see him do it elsewhere. But I won’t dismiss his achievements at Barcelona so lightly. The man created one of the most formidable teams in the history of European club football.

  73. ..True. But you know what they say about points of view. LOLLLL..

  74. Everyone has there point of view,its not rocket science

  75. Another thing, it wasn’t just their accomplishments inside the ring that made boxing’s greats great. It was their overcoming of adversity and their willingness to take up causes greater than themselves.

    That just ain’t Floyd!

  76. “Don’t get me wrong, Mayweather is a superb fighter. He could teach a trigonometry class a thing or two about angles. He is so good defensively he can leave opponents dazed without even throwing a punch. His unbeaten record includes 10 world titles in five weight categories. And he will almost certainly go down as the finest boxer of this era.” A great boxer, undoubtedly, and the winner of the fight against Pacquaio without the slightest semblance of doubt, but the greatest of all time? No way! Muhammad Ali owns that title! I would also place Sugar Ray Robinson ahead of Floyd any day.

  77. He was playing in Turkey? I think. Not sure but I stand to be corrected.

  78. That would really be a surprise. Looks like he lacks the mental toughness.
