    That was like 5 years ago, I read it in the paper or something.
    Why don't you put in an application for the sun? They could do with a few more people like you.

    They're different types of player...

    Riquelme: technically the best of the 3 at the moment. Has the best awareness, and has the ability to collect the ball in space. Can receive the ball anywhere on the pitch, dead ball specialist.

    Kaka: the youngest of the three and also the least polished. Technically good, more of an attacking player than Riquelme and has a more accurate shot in open play. Makes good late runs into the box, similar to Ballack but from more adavnced positions.

    Ballack: the most hard working player of the 3, physically superior with one of the best headers in world football, not to mention a good goal scorer. Not as good technically, but still very capable of finding productive solutions on the pitch. The most experienced and the most decorated, he makes a good leader.

    Conclusion: It depends on the system. Kaka promised so much when he first arrived. He has struggled, on occasion, to make meaningful contributions in games but his ability is unquestionable. Maybe in a couple of years we will see the best of him. It's a close call between Riquelme and Ballack for me, but I would go for Riquelme. He may not be as effective as Ballack in terms of work-rate and goals scored, but it's a pleasure to watch him create when he's on form (and not kicked off the park). Having said that Ballack will make Chelsea considerably improve on last year, and has been consistent for a number of seasons, whereas Riquelme has only started to blossom in the last couple of years. You also have to build your team around Riquelme, could be a good or a bad thing.

    All opinions btw.

    Ballack wouldn't make either the Argentinian or Brazilian first XI. Riquelme has been good for Villareal but wasn't as effective at Barca (more to do with the coach and not playing regularly though) but Kaka has been impressive and one of if not the most important player for AC Milan in the last 2 seasons and considering his age, that makes one of the best players in Europe.

    World Cup Stories on BBC2 last Sunday had a considerable chunk dedicated to Garrincha. He was a legend on and off the pitch. His footballing skill was all the more impressive since one of his legs was bent outwards, and the other bent inwards :eek:. The narrator said that made it easier for him to turn sharply, but he was known as a cripple as a kid.

    personally I would want kaka, think he is already as good as the other two, is technically brilliant and will probably continue to get better with age.

    If it's for 10m, you're getting a bargain. Newcastle's interest may push the price up. I hope stays though.

    They need to do their own bloody scouting!
    He'll be great linking off crouch, but can we get some decent english talent at a reasonable price?
