    Maradona hiring Ben Johnson just to train him was always wild to me.

    RIP to the Argentinian phenomenon

    Had defenders around him falling left and right

    People just couldn’t keep up, literally

    I’m sure Argentina is crying today and will for week and months

    RIP to a legend: Diego Maradonna - part of the elite group of people who only need a first or last name and everybody knows who they are

    Maradona might have been the first soccer player I ever heard of and I never saw him play or watched soccer either. That there defines his greatness. Folks knew his name without ever seeing them play.

    2020 has taken a number of GOATs thus far:

    Kobe
    Chadwick
    Alex Trebeck
    Maradona

    :wow: this might be the craziest year ever when it comes to celebrity deaths

    La Bombonera stadium, the only light turned is in his private box.

    People keep comparing him to to Pele or others. When Pele was playing football was very different and not that tactical. You had teams playing like we used to play in school: no defense, everybody was a attacker.

    Nor he can be compared with todays players because they have all this high tech gear from 10 grams heavy boots, softer more precise footballs, hell even the socks are high tech.

    Diego played the game when it was filled with other GOAT contenders, tactical and roughest most physical point of football. And he soned everyone.

    R.I.P.

    Just woke up and this "celeb" death is really affecting me, like NIPs did :mjcry:

    One of the GOATs. If not the greatest ever then definitely the biggest ‘icon’/‘legend’. No other player or man had that aura.


    Some weird brehs in here trying to make his death about ‘fukk england lolol’ because they know nothing else about his career, I see you.

    If you’re in England and your name isn’t brexit gammon Peter Shilton you see him as a legend, no one’s mad lol.



    Anyway i highly recommend the movie/documentary about him from 2019 by the same guy who made ‘Senna’. Incredible insight in to his life and what a tortured figure he was at times and in turn showing just how great he was.

    RIP Diego. I hope you’re doing lines with god.:salute:

    I saw some of the newspaper covers from the British press. The tabloids went after him in a sickening way, leading by calling him a cheat and leading with giant photos of the Hand of God goal.

    It made me think of the famous speech in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, given by Antony at Caesar's funeral:

    "The evil that men do lives after them;
    The good is oft interred with their bones;
    So let it be with Caesar."

    For Maradona it's the opposite:

    The good that men do lives after them;
    The bad is oft interred with their bones;
    So let it be with Maradona.

    It's in shockingly bad taste for The Mirror, The Telegraph, and The Sun to do what they did; he wasn't some fukking terrorist or genocidal maniac. So he cheated once at football, so what, that doesn't make his death a cause for celebration. The only things we should remember is how amazing he was at football and how powerful his personal charisma was. And the only British media source that I saw that covered his death in a positive and respectful life is The Guardian.

    This isn't a "fukk England" post, but a "fukk English tabloid press" post

    Yeah bro i mean i’m with you in your criticisms of the English press but i don’t think the picture is that deep. It’s how he’s most known by the general public here especially non-football fans.

    It’s an instantly recognisable image for many, if they’d have used him holding a Serie A trophy it’s not really hitting the same way here is it...i dunno, if you’re still letting the English press make you mad in 2020 i can’t help you.:mjlol:

    Also we should not just remember his football at all. It’s important we remember his flaws because they only enhance just how great he was in spite of them. For me anyway.

    He was before my time and I don't even watch soccer (outside of the World Cup) but this was my guy. I liked his swagger and how he carried himself, he had the people behind him. He's a legend.

    And he smoke cigars, did cocaine and rocked two watches. How could you not love him?

    Rest easy to the GOAT.
