    The Euro is for National Teams. It was very tough to qualify then for the final tournament.

    People keep spitting this last resort argument like if winning a billion ligas, copas and 4 CL was a walk in the park.
    Winning a CL is no easy feat and he has led the team in 3 of those (First one he was like 18 or 19), with absolutely mind-blowing performances over and over again.

    He probably would have a WC if Fat Higuain didn't miss that sitter. And his Argentina side kept losing Copa America finals.


    Is it now where I get replied that he won all those trophies while playing with Iniesta and Xavi?

    France was the host, no qualification. And finally they managed to win something at the time.

    Went with Zidane.

    I only really saw the last few years of Maradonas career & nothing of Cruyff's.

    And ?
    WC semi finalist before and after. That France team was among the best ever assembled.
    To compare that to Euro winning Portugal is insulting.

    Michael Jordan and Wayne Gretzky wouldn't be considered the best in their sport if they had not delivered on the biggest stages. 0 goal for Messi all around in WC knockout stages since forever. Not even a Copa title with Argentina. Easy looking good when you play for a great club team...

    Still didn't count and who is writing was the greatest fan of the middle 80's France NT. Always thought they only lacked a true number 9 and that's a shame because their midfield was the best in business at some point.

    I agree. Unless you consider Messi an AM, he’s played everywhere it seems lol. But yeah it’s Crutff for me.

    I'd like to see the reasonning behind some votes. Like Baggio over Platini.

    I feel like top 3 has to be Cruyff/Platini/a couple guys it could be here. But cruyff and platini are the 2 best imo.

    Then and there
    Platini was no longer a superstar in 1986/87 when Maradona won his first title with Napoli. In fact Platini was playing the last year of his career and had statistically the worst year of his career. At that time, most players were physically done as a top player soon after turning 30. Maradona and Napoli were a massive failure in European Cup, and after Milan got the better players Maradona's Napoli was largely back to playing second fiddle to better teams and players, barely edging out Milan who had to complete on two fronts as they won the EC that season.

    Maradona's club career is much further behind Messi's club career than Messi's NT career is behind Maradona's NT career.

    Platini didn't have a dope ponytail like Baggio did.

    Because he was the last romantic player able to make people dream regardless of the palmares. All this with knees in dramatic conditions throughout his career. Suffice it to see his last game where there is a famous video of his knees.

    Where is the scandal of voting Baggio instead of Platini? Then you voted Socrates seriously?

    Where is the scandal? Well Platini was three times the player Baggio was and I love Baggio.

    As for Socrates, I explained my vote. He was not nearly the best, but I explained it. Hence the "reasonning".
