    It has been a strange month, hasn't it?

    First Peter Sutcliffe and then Diego Maradona - that's two world class attackers gone in two weeks.

    A great footballer and Wildman, people don't realise his problem with his weight was caused caused by a unique gland in his body.
    Doctors had never seen this before, medically it was unique in a person they named it - The Gland Of God.

    Competition and team support notwithstanding, here is a statistical comparison of Maradona vs. Pele.




    Still... Maradona was one of the ATG's, alongside the likes of Pele, and current stars Messi and Ronaldo.

    There was a time when I put Pele above Maradona, but I’ve changed over the years. And I don’t think the stats are comparable , simply because Maradona wasn’t really a striker as such. His game was so much more than that.

    Watched the BBC Lineker documentary filmed 2006 and it was a good watch. I forgot he knocked Italy out of the world cup in 1990 with the penalty. Many hated him for that.

    Also forgot the fight he had on the pitch with Barcelona and had to leave to Naples.

    Isn't his daughter married to Agüero?

    Actually that pic was a myth. When it pans out, he was receiving a pass as part of a free kick move and those defenders were the wall.
