    None of your business

    But one thing I will say. I saw Ron Harris live a good few times and I saw Ashley cole

    The difference between the two players? Massive. Athleticism skill speed. Different world.

    If there is one area of football that has improved more than any other over past few decades its the ability of full backs. The "kicking in the air" thing is wildly overplayed too.

    The skilful forwards of today have it much harder than back then. I am sure of that

    Yes, Giles, Bremner and Hunter were dirty bastards.

    Col just named 3...in one team

    first ever game i went to was in 1967..Forest v Man U..Best spent most of the game on the floor.

    i remember from 69/70 period Leeds & Chelsea had some right games..very tasty stuff re tackling.

    shall i throw in the surfaces they played on in those days yet Col?

    Shall I throw in the fact that hunter was so slow that it took him all of half time to walk off the pitch? And the fact that he had the turning circle of an oil tanker?
    And that mistake against Poland which wouldn't have been excused in the conference these days?

    Messi and Ronaldo? Kick in the air? If he ever got within 20 yards of them

    To even that up..take Messi as a baby back in time to 1950...feed him the diet we had in those days for 20 years...and then see if he is a still a lot faster than Norman and Chopper on a quagmire pitch

    But Messi for me is the best of the lot. He's a bit burnt out at the moment but his pure ability and vision stands out

    Cruyff should be on list. I wasnt always blown away by ronaldiniho..
    Re Ronaldhino Do you not remember that goal at Stamford bridge in 04 Clive?

    I still marvel when I watch it on youtube.

    I was there.

    It was but he could easily be peripheral and had too much of an ego

    Hard to argue with Germany winning the WC more of a team than most other countries maybe Columbia aside.

    The final was a decent game and Argentina had their chances to win, I thought Messi did ok certainly not as bad as some of the papers made out but overall he disappointed from the knock out stages onwards.

    Messi winning the Golden ball was balls and even he knew it, embarrassed for him but that is FIFA for you.
