The thing with Pele was the mythos around him and that Santos team. They pretty much toured the world playing the world’s best teams such was their level of fame. Impossible to compare to anything in modern sport. To those crowds, Pele was almost like a being from another planet, unlike anything they’d seen before. I certainly agree that I wouldn’t hold him in the regard I’d hold Maradona or Messi, but his status in world football during his era will never be matched by anyone again. Football is too readily available to watch. Impossible for anyone to have that same air of mystery about them.
he won 4 world cups. he was a couple of decades ahead of everyone else, as you say. too bad his ego is so huge that he became insufferable.

Anyone else think he's been less clinical recently? He's missed a lot of good chances.
He is just giving Salah a chance to get a few goals ahead in the golden boot race, only to score 7 in the last 2 matches and win his 3rd on the trot.

He wants to wind up the Dippers some more, what a lad.

While this may be not entirely on topic considering the thread, Salah with 24 goals feels like one of the weirdest fluke goal tallies in recent seasons.

I’ve a feeling he’s a bit tired. Either that or he’s been saving himself for the Juventus game.

Hes been performing at such a high standard though for so long he’s going to have dips in form. It has happened a couple of times in the last few seasons but he’s still contributed, as he has now, so I suspect he will coming firing back.

Yeah, very weird statement. Salah will probably win player of the year and it’s hard to argue against it.
De Bruyne for me all day long. Salah gets a lot of goals but De Bruyne is the best player for the best team in the league. He is their engine room and their creator, truly a wonderful football player.

Agreed. He is a good player, but I will still hold him as a one season wonder until he proves otherwise.
