The past rofl


For sure. Aston Villa's defending today was amazing. EPL best league in the world. Anyone who debates that is stupid. Leicester will win CL next year 100% with City, Tott and Arsenal in the semis.


The mad rofl

As awful as Villa are there is no chance they allow the most dangerous man on the pitch that much space. Fact is with each generation teams and managers learn and adapt, even Guardiola's Barca team wouldn't be as successful today.

Just funny how much people gush over the past when there's just as many faults from a tactical and technical point of view as there is today.

I have to concede, that's some crap defending, its almost as if they had to work together lmao

Mole is right, the past is overrated, the best times are now. We get to see the greatest frontline in the history of sport miss penalties and have a laugh about it every week, Ranieri winning a league title in 2016, Spurs contending, PSG securing league titles for the next decade, Boateng, Chiellini and Ramos considered as the best defenders, Belgium a legitimate team in Euros, Wenger still having a job, referees stopping a play every 2 mins for a peck on the cheek, the same 2-3 teams in semis every year and Italy basically a non-factor in Europe bar Juve.

Where did i say that? teams are a lot smarter defensively today for that reason though. No team would ever allow that to happen today and if i were to bother to watch full matches i'd probably find more.

Not sure why people get butthurt over this tbh, they were great for their time but teams evolve and adapt over time and what made them great then wouldn't get away with now. There's a reason why no one defends like that anymore, they would get creamed on a regular basis.

But you're discrediting them in that time period judging by those standards. You're not saying "If Sacchi's Milan were to play in 2016 they would get creamed", you're saying "Napoli's achievement is overrated because they had to face this kind of defense". Yes tactics change constantly and evolve but that doesn't make them bad, especially not against teams in their own time period.

Who's mad? I'm agreeing with you.

The past was awful. Every "good" or "legendary" team were only so because of how awful the football was back then.

Mahrez >>>>> Maradona, Pele, pretty much everyone because he's playing in probably the best league in history. I mean, the league is so competitive that even a team like Newcastle is battling it out in relegation zone!

As far Villa goes, you're totally right. They didn't give Aguero a sniff of the ball all game.

It's actually crazy how on point you are with everything! Top TOP poster.

I can't tell who's serious and who's trolling in this thread Laughing

Mahrez is doing something special but to say Leicester is a one man show is ridiculous Laughing

And like Futbol said this is the weakest PL I've seen in my life Laughing

I can say seriously and very confidently Leicester wouldn't even be top 5 in La Liga or Serie A. This is more every team in the PL competing to find more elaborate ways to choke than Mahrez dragging an underdog team to the top with miraculous skill and Maradona-esque play.

And Mole you have got to be kidding me. I could find worse defending in five minutes of watching a PL game. Of course it wouldn't look like that, but don't pretend there aren't ridiculous examples of set piece marking, one on one defending, goal keeper errors, poor touches, etc.

No one's claiming the past teams were perfect. But to say 80s Serie A wasn't at a higher level than the current joke PL is is just ludicrious. Not to mention contrary to what you're always saying about football having declined and being more boring now than it was in the past Laughing

Wasn't the offside rule during Sacchi's time different? Here are some examples of it working:

On topic, I personally think Maradona's achievement was better since he faced stronger opponents.

what leicester as a whole, especially ranieri r doing is very impressive. i've caught some of their games and mahrez is no joke. based on their previous position, history and all those things, its probably more impressive than napoli...however, let's not pretend like the big clubs haven't been garbage for some seasons now, chelsea, utd, liverpool...u know its something when arsenal are doing better than the first 3 mentioned, and even arsenal choke. its almost like the pl nobody wants to win. oh unless ofcourse these "top" sides are better than matthaus' inter, platini's juve, gullit's milan etc, then u have a point. but it's certainly more impressive than the higuain title that his club were prematurely crowned with here on gl....

btw the greatest player diego played with at napoli was careca (and maybe ferrara, who was a rookie), and careca, though good, wasn't close to being an all time great...if leicester wins though, it will definitely be one of the biggest upsets in league football. kinda like how sociedad almost won the la liga title. them even qualifying for ucl is huge

Competition is Louis van Gaal's red army, Wenger's bottle boys and Tottenham (who are so irrelevant I can't even bother to give them a nickname). Napoli were competing against Sacchi's Milan, Platini's Juventus etc. Milan won back-to-back Champions Leagues in that era and Juventus also won the Champions League in 85. English clubs in this era can't even get past the round of 16. Laughing

It's a huge achievement if they do it but the league is lacking so much quality it almost spoils the whole thing. Premier League is what Bundesliga was a few years ago before Bayern became elite and random teams like Stuttgart went from 9th place to title winners or Hertha from 4th place to relegation. Unless they also stay competitive next seasons it's just a statistical outliner like Chelsea's current shit season.

Oh, and of course Mahrez is producing nowhere near Maradona's football.

Not sure what that gif is supposed to prove. I can post the gif of Puyol doing the splits against Di Maria with 2 players in Barca's own half and pretend that was the standard of defending in this era. When Milan won the league in 89 they conceded 14 goals the entire season, that's the bigger picture. Right now in England the fiercest defense belongs to Tottenham (rofl) with 24 goals conceded in 29 games and they can't even shut down an average European team in bad form with Welbeck leading the line after they are down to 10 men, at home, when the league title is on line. That's how "fierce" the fiercest defense in England is right now.

For that time Maradona was the best. Compared today he is not.
Mehrez can do it without a problem if defending today was in slow motion like it was in 86

Comparing direct contribution for Mahrez for Leicesters first and Maradona Napoli's first, it's a no-brainer.

From this list alone "one man teams" more than Maradona in Napoli's first scudetto.

RG kind of wants Spurs to win it though that's the thing.

Spurs are playing like Arsenal would be if Wenger hadn't lost the plot and Giroud was anything more than a large traffic cone that occasionally has balls bounce off of him into the goal

He sees Arsenal in Spurs and he wants it to happen because then he can start to believe again. RG has fallen into delusion, yes, but he still has hope.
