  1. Maradona appreciation thread

    I started watching football around 2002, so I missed Maradona, Pele, Puskas etc. and also R9's prime years. Watched all the footage I could get of those plqyers, though, if possible even complete games. When I watch videos of Maradona, he always gives me these 'you can' t play better than...
  2. Foden or Greenwood: who do you take?

    As a neutral I'd go for Greenwood. Foden is great though and could easily turn out better if Greenwood doesn't fulfill his potential to the fullest.
  3. Most Iconic Footballer Ever (& Football Image)

    Was going to post that
  4. Maradona appreciation thread

    Most gifted player on the ball ever alongside Ronaldinho for me. The raw package (ability and physique) is only surpassed by R9, IMO. In total, he's in a tier of his own with Pele, Messi and R9 and at least for me, I can't define an order. He was much more individualistic than them, though. I...
  5. Teacher beheaded near Paris after showing cartoons of Prophet Muhammad

    Of course there are many things to be reasonably scared about regarding Islam. I think we all agree Mohammed caricatures should be allowed in a free and civilized country and we also all agree that showing those in a school class for education purposes has to be possible. Anyone who disagrees...
  6. German football is turd

    Sure, Berlin has potential. But then again, football support is usually heavily influenced by "local patriotism" and there's this saying that nowadays, no Berlin people are living in Berlin anymore. The city attracts all kinds of students, hipsters, fashionistas, artists, alternatives...
  7. La Liga 2020/21

    Thing is, even if he was right that Vinicius had a terrible game, the way he brought that topic up is disgraceful for a player that should be a leader and role model for the younger players at this point. It's only getting worse because he himself was in similar situations, playing badly and...
  8. Teacher beheaded near Paris after showing cartoons of Prophet Muhammad

    The threat of Nazis is a much more realistic one than that of an islamisation. After all, the AfD - a party that consists of right wing extremists - holds 12,5% in the Bundestag and in a European comparison, that's actually a low percentage. And PEGIDA and the AfD are actually strongest in...
  9. La Liga 2020/21

    Oh I see. Searched for a Benzema thread but there wasn't one. Didn't think of the Zidane thread. Anyway, jokes are one thing but Benzema has quite a history of "betraying" team mates. That Valbuena story was already incredible but you might've thought he's matured since then. He's one of the...

    But the bait looked so delicious
  11. La Liga 2020/21

    Bit surprised it wasn't mentioned yet but during the halftime of Madrid - Gladbach microphones caught Benzema instructing Mendy to not play the ball to Vinicius Junior anymore after the latter had a bad first half (didn't see the game). Vinicius was walking next to them but apparently didn't...
  12. Teacher beheaded near Paris after showing cartoons of Prophet Muhammad

    While I agree with much you're claiming, I disagree regarding the Islamophobia part. Here in Germany, we've got a far right wing organisation called PEGIDA (Patriotic Europeans Against The Islamisation Of The Occident) who try convincing people that the islamisation of the western world is a...
  13. Chelsea 2020/21 - General discussion

    I'd say the sample size is too small. In some games, the defense looked as if it severely lacked quality, too, but then again their record last season wasn't that bad considering they had Kepa in goal, so it might have been outliers. The jury is still out, I suppose. If you ask me, their plan...
  14. German football is turd

    Thought it was a funny to point out the double standards, I'm sorry :nervous:
  15. Kai Havertz | Chelsea player

    Yes. Already said it when the rumors to England began. Many people thought he was a classic 10 but his best performances for us - the ones that made him one of the greatest prospects in Europe - occurred when he was playing as an 8 in a 4-3-3 or a 8/10 hybrid alongside Brandt in a 3-6-1 with...
