    I would say 1962, and than a steady regress until 1965/66, I'd say that his peak was before he joined Milan
    But he was still quality afterwards, even in 1970

    I remember watching the 68-69 CL semi when we played Milan and Best rinsed KHS a few times that game, though of course that was close to a peak Best against an ageing KHS. No idea how we lost that game after creating a plethora of chances, our finishing was abysmal.

    A never-nude? I thought he just liked cut-offs.
    :cool: Nice one mate. Is it abnormal to find yourself celebrating a goal that was scored decades ago? Just a mild shaking of the fist for Seeler's goal here as I didn't know if he was going to end up on the scoresheet after a typically industrious performance, but a few days ago I was watching the video below and I ended up getting properly worked up when Cantona scored, despite having watched it live and seen it many, many times since :nervous:.

    :lol: thats a great thing with footballia, if you dont know result in advance there is no info there so you can pretty much watch a game in complete ignorance which is fantastic, cant say i celebrated like yourself but was happy for Uwe(now reading this thats even more bizarre), in that Germany team you can see how him and Kaiser where few decades ahead of everyone else in terms of understanding the game so its always nice to see him have some personal joy after you watch his 90 minute masterclass in team work and work rate.

    The story of Rivellino playing on the left as Zagallo wanted to fit both him and Pele in the same lineup is well established.
    But Rivellino's role in 1970 and especially beyond is a bit misunderstood.
    Some feel he was not a natural left winger even though his cross from the left lead to Pele scoring the opening goal in 1974 final.
    Some feel he was a number 10 (which he was for his club side) and not suited to deeper role. His defensive contribution and deep lying role is hardly documented unless you have avidly watched his videos.
    In my opinion he was well suited to everyone of these roles as and when the team required.
    Probably one of the few legends who had to be tweaked into teams to fit him in and never had a designated role say players like Pele/Tostao/Garrincha/Jairzinho/Zico etc had
    His 1970 story of being the final piece in the puzzle might be known to most with Pele himself admitting it was because of his rearrangement they won the world cup so easily in the knockouts.
    But what after 1970 is something I have not seen or heard a lot about.

    Below is an interesting excerpt from the book : The Country of Football: Soccer and the Making of Modern Brazil

    Firstly, it obviously shows the tactical master Zagallo was, especially with the details and player roles, but also explains what was expected of Rivellino apart from his obvious offensive traits.

    @Invictus @Moby

    One reinforcement each, conducted Lamb style.

    Please send asap and arrange the final

    Reinforcement results-

    Invictus - Maradona
    Moby - Brehme

    A surprise that Moby didn't go for Diego blocking.

    Anyway @Invictus @Moby please arrange the final asap.

    yeah indeed. 3 blocks would make sense even with an underwhelming LB.

    Either way I'd lose.

    And that's a pretty shitty way to block someone especially as I have no need of Maradona myself.

    Yeah, indeed. Probably 4-2-2-2 with Maradona in the place of Socrates, but you'd still need Brehme and would be sub optimal set up.

    Nah, I doubt Maradona would be too thrilled about the sidekick role, something that Socrates accepted without blinking twice.

    "Zico was the king. He was much better than everyone else. When there is a king, the rest fight to be close to the king. When there is no king, everybody loses direction. Society is like that. So it was Zico who should lead. It was Machiavellian, but I was the prince and Zico the king." - Socrates.

    Yeah, as I said sub optimal. Would be the same with Cruyff, Platini, Pele etc.. Although Pele is probably the one that could make it work.

    But nothing beats old games, modern football is total crap in comparison. You get to watch some genius in action as you choose the games, get to see proper football and not this no contact shit they play today + there are so many random scenes where you laugh more then on the good episode of Fools and Horses which is IMO comfortably best comedy show ever.
