Yeah he did pick the ball up and jump with it !Absolutely. I miss those types of players. Just prepared to pick the ball up, run with it and not fall over at the slightest touch. Pure determination to head for goal every time. Just goes to show that a lot of modern players are embarrassingly weak. The number of shocking challenges dished out to Maradona and he rides them and stays on his feet because it means more to him making progress with the ball than falling over and getting a free kick.
I felt that way at the time and for many, many years after, but at least he admits he cheated. Realistically we wouldn't have beaten West Germany in the final, so I don't think we lost the World Cup because of Maradona.Couldn't bring myself to watch Diego Muthafunker in anything other than a grave.
Messi is as skilful as Maradona but he hasn't:I don't support England so that hand of God doesn't bother me. I'm with Ed though. Second best player I've ever watched behind Messi.
