Diego Maradona has passed......
Sad day for World Football with the death of Maradona at 60 years old
A flawed genius
Naturally the 1986 semi-final is featuring on the news. That incredible first goal, followed by the non-goal... I dunno. He was an absolutely brilliant footballer who had no need to do that, yet he did. Yes, it was a world cup SF, the stakes were high, but when you're that good you can win a game by legitimate means - as the first goal demonstrated. And for a lot of people, that non-goal is the thing he'll be remembered for.
Leaving that aside, 60 is far too young. RIP.
Honestly surprised he made it to 60 given the insane lifestyle, but the guy was an absolute legend on the pitch
I watched a documentary on him last year (think it was on HBO?) and it portrayed him as a very sympathetic individual that was taken advantage of in many ways by the people around him, quite sad actually
Not selected in 1978 because Menotti thought him too young
Kicked off the park in 1982 when he stood out a mile in an average Argentina team
Won the World Cup almost single handedly in 1986, he was at his peak
1990, he was already showing signs of wear and tear but he still had some touches in a very workmanlike team who lost the plot in the Final mostly due to Germany's ridiculous diving escapades
1994, overweight, made a comeback, scores sublime goal, gets done for drugs............sad, but his own fault.
Watched some footage of him on Spanish TV the other night from his time at Barcelona
He was kicked from pillar to post but still had amazing ability
A legend of the game, perhaps on a level of his own.
Boxing Day football all day on NBCSN today and tomorrow. A Premier League junkie's favorite two days of the year.
Premier League is infested with too many positive corona cases..... And the virus mutates. Up to now, most of the players and athletes from other sports recovered from their infection. Wolverhampton Wanderers sends staff to go shopping in supermarkets for the players. They don't want their players to get infected there. Well, the standard citizen can't afford to avoid supermarkets....By the way, supermarkets aren't the only place to get infected.
Great free-kick goal by Leroy Sané Fc Bayern - against Holstein Kiel, DFB Pokal
Barcelona are in serious trouble of actually going bankrupt BARCELONA.
Player wages are still too high as the virus continues to rage. Then there are no fans allowed. A financial disaster for all the teams including Barcelona.
Bundesliga - 41 goals this season. Congratulations .
A forgettable season for me (as an Arsenal fan) so I'm happy to start concentrating on the upcoming Euros just as soon as the two remaining European club finals are done.
Today Villareal vs ManU.....
UEFA final today!!! C’mon Chelsea!!!!!!!
Very likely the only time in my life I'll ever be glad Chelski won a game of football.
Either outcome would have been awful but at least Chelsea was clearly the better team the whole way through. City looked lost the whole time.
Absolutely. Chelski was (very) slightly less repellent but this final was very much a devil-or-deep-blue-sea scenario for me.
