    why is George Best always forgotten about in these discussions. Pele himself has said that Best was the greatest footballer in the world.

    In terms of natural ability, he has to be at the top.

    Yes he has to be haha. He wasn't bad considering he must have turned up to most of the games with a hangover from the night before.

    That may be true. However you can't deny the natural ability of George Best.

    Of course not, however I'm uncomfortable making such broad statements as 'x was the best player/most talented of all time' think it's better to have categorise such players as one of the best off all time since comparison between conditions is impossible to make

    Iniesta > Zidane

    Anyway, I'd go for Messi as the best ever.

    No, im sure many others will agree with me, iniesta is the greatest midfielder of all time, the only reason you say zidane is because of nostalgia and not proper thought.

    Who else agrees iniesta was better than zidane?

    Mate you're entitled to think whatever you like.

    Honestly I'm too tired and I don't care enough to debate this :lol: Your argument is that most people think like me (which you haven't proven) = I must be right..?

    Also how old are you, if you don't mind me asking?

    As good as Iniesta is, he's not better than Zidane imo.

    The most talented footballer I've ever seen is Ronaldinho, that guy was a monster in his prime. Most consistently good is Messi, but idk he just isn't as fun to watch as some other players I've seen.

    You do realise saying who's better is subjective anyway. There's no unanimous way of deciding who is better or was the best. Just feel lucky we got to see some great talent over the years :lol:
