Run of Play’s Pele week

Filed under: Football — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 4:45 am

Was brilliant stuff.

I learnt.  I was entertained.  Good stuff.

But their post on Brazillians’ attitudes to Pele made me do a massive rethink.  I HAD thought that it was a pity that the game’s greatest had played before my time.  Isn’t that a sign of decline?

Somewhere in that article I read something along the lines of – Pele won’t be topped, the spread of talent and excellence in modern football make this impossible.  It would be nigh on impossible for somebody to be that much better than their peers in modern football.

Pele’s place in the game, and the difficulty others face in taking over that spot, is a cause for celebration.

ps.  just watched the highlights of Arsenal and Barca’s midweek matches – it is videogame football.  utterly utterly brilliantly mad.
