Pele The Great – A tribute to history’s greatest soccer player of all time.

Wilson Hatcher’s pick: Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi 2009 – Top 10 Goals *NEW*

This list is based on talent not influence. For Pele would easily be number 1. But when it comes to talent, Messi is the best.

He is only 23 and he has won the FIFA player of the year award twice and he came in second for another one. He is very quick and he is great with his feet. The speed, the dribbling, the assist, the goals, this guy has it all. Teamwork is what leads to victory, with players like Messi, all of that increases.

This video is about lionel Messi and a little about his life story. I love it!!!


Here is another top 10 list I got off the internet:

1Pele (Edson Arantes do Nascimento)

“This is a century old question that will impact future generations, some say that he won everything with the best team, but in that same thought, remember this is a team game. Pele was terror to any goalie, he only presence in the area shuke fear in their very core. But beyond that a player goes beyond the field, sets standards of living for other players and fans, the only one to positively do this is not but Edson Arantes Do Nascimento, any more questions check his numbers.

“Just look at his goals on You Tube, he could whack the from a mile out or dribble them into the back of the net, he was the most complete player the game has ever seen and unlike modern players didn’t have the comfort of referees protection… opposing players tried to kick him off the park. I remember seeing him in the early 70’s and frankly it was a time to really watch football rather than spoilt brats thinking they are a lot better than they really are.

“When you see this guy play, it’s like everything else around you doesn’t matter. The ringing phone doesn’t disturb you. The chatter of the people makes no impact on you at all. It’s just him, him and his game. Pele wasn’t just another amazing football player, he was an excellent one, a prodigy, incomparable, and probably, someone this world will never see again in the next 100 years. He simply is, a football legend.

2Cristiano Ronaldo

“He is the best that is, that was and that will be. Better than Lionnel Messi or Rooney. His free kicks, his dribbles, his shots and his high class on the pitch. May be he has another skills that we don’t know. Remember, before Messi he was the winner of the fifa golden ball. Don’t be stupid and vote the best player.

“yes he is the best… I literally worship him… he should be the no.1.. he is the most skilled player in the world

“Ronaldo is simply amazing. He make soccer a show and entertains. He shows up and shows what he is mad of good or bad. Pele is the only one that can beat him.

4Diego Maradona

“Maradona is the best player ever, and the second one is Messi. His playing skills were simply marvelous, amazing just like maradona. They have perfect ball controlling ^^ dribbler ability.

“ronaldo = fake of soccer
messi = genius of soccer
pele = king of soccer
maradona = god of soccer


“maradona lived in a more modern day soccer while pele was great but he played in a time where the game was so slow. and I’m not talking about physical side I’m talking about the mental and tactical part of the game. even maradona’s time was slow compared to today. I give pele huge props but maradona was just better.

5Zinedine Zidane

“Put France back onto the worldwide football map.

His playing skills were simply marvelous, amazing, punctuated in my opinion by his incredible performance against Brazil in the 2006 FIFA World Cup. At that point of his career he was more Brazilian than any Brazilian at the time.

Always present when needed, he led France to back-to-back major championships in 1998 and 2002.
Came back in 2006 and almost won it for France in overtime with another amazing headshot (his specialty in the Finals) blocked by a certain Gianluigi Buffon, at the top of his craft.

Zidane’s name should be well ahead of the two Ronaldo’s. Cristiano is a great player but he hasn’t won anyhting worthy now and probably won’t.

“Zindane is higher than Ronaldhino.
Ronaldhino cant play big games. He can never use his tricks when he play. The fake u-tube video(gitting the post several times) does not make him great.
Pele …dont know about hi. Looking at the videos, i dont think he can be compared to Zidane.
Football was different then. It was not competetive.
Pele is better than general but not great because he did not face great opposition and he didnt have magic touches like zidane or other players have these days. he was just a mere shooter like Trazeguet….he got lucky. But zico is better in Brazilian player.

“zidane is first period. there is no question he may not have been the shooter or scored the most goals. but he lead his teams they did not even need there coach they could just follow there amazing player who’s passing and way of looking at the game surpasess any player.

8Jari Litmanen

+2He is the best player the world has ever witnessed. He can see the whole pitch better than anyone else. TIMO JUTILA once said that Jari is also really good at making fantastic barbecue. That said, he is without a doubt the greatest player of all time.

+2The last of the Mohicans of “total football”. While at Ajax he taught everything to Zlatan except those dirty stuff which Zlatan learnt from violent movies when he was kid.

+1Was an outstanding player, and according to my Finnish mates, he is still very good when he plays. An absolute genius. Legend.
