    I think we should leave it there with the Suárez' accusations or we'll have@Dr. Gonzo and @Rick appearing with t-shirts on to protest his innocence ...

    I actually saw a huge spider in the shed a few months back. I saw a moth in the corner of my eye flapping in a Web, I turned around to look and some huge spider just came out and grabbed it. I'm not sure which kind that was, but it didn't look friendly. They are actually probably the best predators in the world pound 4 pound.

    The Aussies will take the piss now because it's not a "real widow". Also fuck a scorpion. I bet they would do some damage.

    The worst are flying cockroaches, the most deadly creature on the planet. They simply just need to fly or run and you die of pure fear .

    Nah I live in Lancashire. There are adders I suppose but they are rare. It's for the best I stay away from countries with deadly snakes to be honest...

    I was bitten the other day off something, maybe when asleep or while putting my tshirt on, I'm unsure. Either way, it has puffed out, swelled up and become painful after like 5 days. The thing is, they are 2 fang marks, which means it can only be a spider. Only I can get bitten off a spider in the UK. The problem is, I hate phoning the doctors..it takes 10 hours to get through and then they will either tell you to take a picture and send it to them or go to a chemist(how professional), then the pharmacist will tell you you need to see a GP. I've had it all before and I end up just going to A&E when something worsens.
  12. I would argue Pele was the most iconic man in any sport, not just football, along with Ali. Also who remembers the film Victory? Classic.
  13. To be honest there isn't much between the majority of the list, especially between 7 to 15. There are a bunch of players I'd regard as being on a similar level. Either way, that's probably for another day and thread now, since this one is for Pele. R.i.P to a legend. As I have said before, whether he's the greatest of alltime or whether there are 1 or 2 players you rate ahead of him, nobody will ever have the iconic status that Pele had. Everyone knows who he is, even those who don't watch the sport.
  14. The reason you love that film is because you are literally a young version of him
  15. You do know that the fella you are quoting there is also one of those don't you?
  16. Interestingly, people actually speak more about the Brazil 82 side than the Italian team that actually won the World Cup that year. It's actually a shame that team never won it, or the Dutch side of 74 and 78. The Germans had to go and ruin the Dutch's party in 74, like they seem to do with everyone, I.e Messi in 2014, Maradona in 1990, they made a show of Brazil in their own backyard in 2014 with the 7-1, it took England about 70 years to beat them.... It's always the bloody Germans who have to ruin it for everyone.
  17. Where do Brazilians rank Zico? @El Profesor He is unfairly ignored because of a lack of world Cup for me. It seems like being Brazilian or Argentine means you have to win a World Cup or you can be somewhat forgotten. The pressure Zico had of having to live up to being the so called "White Pele" was unfair. Similar to Messi for Argentina to be honest. Told he needed to win a World Cup to be compared to Maradona. Unneeded pressure. A player should be left to make their own mark.
  18. @Bandito Burrito Ronaldinho was my favourite player to watch at his best, but he stopped caring and didn't last long enough, unlike others who were able to evolve and play alot longer. As for Di Stefano, as I mentioned, he was before the time period I made the list from. It was from around 1966 or so, from that period on is where you can find alot more footage and full games of players I've found. It's interesting how you never mention Diego Maradona. Is that because he was a cheating bastard with a nasty side, or would you genuinely not rank him up there for talent? Yeah, he doesn't look great to be honest. It's sad. He's like Muhammad Ali in boxing, the biggest iconic figure in his sport.
  19. 1. Messi 2. Maradona 3. Pele 4. Beckenbauer 5. Johan Cruijff 6. C.Ronaldo 7. Platini 8. Zidane 9. Ronaldo Nazario 10. Iniesta 11. Zico 12. Matthäus 13. Maldini 14. Romário 15. George Best / Gerd Müller From 1966 or so onwards. There's not enough material out there from before that, of players like Di Stefano, etc, but those who saw him have him down as the greatest of all, even elderly Barcelona fans will tell you. From what there is out there, it's evident he wasn't a normal player, but there just isn't enough. It's even the same with George Best for some reason, although I still included him. He played more recently than Di Stefano or Puskas, but there is still a lack of material compared to others. Best seemed fucking incredible though. If I had lived him, I have a feeling that I'd have been a big fan of his and had him much higher on the list, despite playing for those cunts. @CaaC (John) will know more about him. Ronaldinho was great, but his career was far too short. He was pretty much finished at 26, while the other players on the list(other than probably Best) were able to evolve in some way. Also Xavi was hard to leave out. Bobby Charlton and Moore also seemed class and Garrincha and Rivelino. I also loved Roberto Baggio as a kid and obviously Rivaldo was an absolute beast. Van Basten was another ridiculous talent. I would also say there is little between my top 5(Messi, Maradona, Pele, Beckenbauer and Cruijff), those 5 for me are pretty much undisputed and the order would be about preference. Edit: I've just realised I never mentioned even one full back or keeper. It's hard. You'd have to make an XI instead.
  20. I don't even watch those soaps to be honest. I saw her yesterday on the Chase. The only soap I used to avidly watch was Brookside and Eastenders for a period. Brookie laaaaar.
  21. Pele's world cup at 18 was remarkable really. He wasn't just part of the team, he was the genuine star. In 1962, he was injured in the 2nd game and played no more part in the tournament. It's interesting how people give him credit for this one and completely ignore Garrincha. That poor fella(Garrincha) was always forgotten, he was even left abandonded when dying. They give credit to a man who played little part in it instead. in 1966, the Portuguese beat fuck out of Pele and he left the pitch injured, while Brazil bowed out in the groups. That was Portugal's best ever run funnily enough(third place finish), when Eusebio scored 9 goals. Pele then vowed to never play in a world cup again due to the injury sustained vs Portugal in 66, but he luckily changed his mind before 1970 and well, everyone knows what happened there, the greatest Brazil team, or national team in general, of alltime. He had some international career either way. Curiously he never won the Copa America, although I think himself and Maradona were iffy about playing in that. Even today, it's full of brutal fouls and shit you don't see in Europe anymore, so I can't imagine what it was like back then.
