    Re: Who is the best player you've ever seen?

    Messi is the best player going today but to say he is the best ever is a bit much. He's still very young and could easily turn out to be the best ever but he's not there yet. I could name dozens of players better than him but I'm not going to bother, I'm only going to say who I consider the best, that being Dennis Bergkamp.

    Bergkamps the best player you've ever seen. Come on thats so biased! I mean Bergkamp was good, really good, but best player you've ever seen. Fucking hell. Its like me saying Cantona is the best I have ever seen.

    Tend to agree that Bergkamp isn't in Messi's league. Classic Daren lol.

    Are you saying we shouldn't say guys such as Pele, Best etc Tommy, even if we've seen a lot of their footage? Guys such as that are still probably better than Messi, but with time, he has the potential to reach that standard.

    And he scores goals...!

    Maradona>Messi.

    I feel I have seen enough from Maradona to confirm that statement, I would also put Zidane above Messi, Zidane was truly awesome.

    Best player i have seen live is Paul Gascoigne, sadly he should have made more of his talents.

    Re: Who is the best player you've ever seen?

    I probably haven't watched more than 10 full games of Messi. So I don’t think I’ve seen enough of him on a regular basis to say he’s the best I’ve ever seen. I saw a bit of Maradona at the end of his career, and I would put him ahead of Messi from what I’ve seen. He was a genius of a footballer – and a bit mental too, I think that helped.

    From archive footage I’d put George Best up there too. Probably one of the most skilful players to ever grace a football pitch.

    As for watching live, I have 3 players who I can't separate. Juan Sebastian Veron had two amazing games when I saw him. Once for United against Everton shortly after he'd signed for them, and when he played for Argentina against Wales just before the 2002 world cup. He was pinging passes here there and everywhere, and a real creative force in the midfield. It’s a shame he wasn’t able to replicate that for United or Chelsea too often.

    I also had the privilege of watching Ronaldinho play for Barca against Parma in a pre season friendly. Watching just him alone was worth the entrance fee.

    Without a doubt the most complete performance from an individual in a match I’ve seen is from Bastian Schweinsteiger; playing for Germany against Wales. He was unstoppable on that day, and he also had a very good game last season against us. He’s one player I’ve always liked to have seen play in the Premiership.

    Re: Who is the best player you've ever seen?

    It's hard to say, there's so many. For Blues, it's a toss up between Pennant and Dugarry. Shame Pennant's been so inconsistent everywhere else, as well as having a shit attitude. Le God looked every inch a world cup winner, a proper legend.

    2 opposition players who've really stood out this season are Pienaar and Diamante.

    Biggest disappointment ever I think was Le Tiss. Saw him in a friendly and he couldn't be arsed.

    Re: Who is the best player you've ever seen?

    It's difficult to compare soccer back in the days of Cruijff and Pele to now, because players aren't getting any space anymore, it's alot faster. Messi is a phenomenom, I believe the only guy keeping up with goals and assist on such a level is Rooney and he's probably far off. I can't say who is the best but I can say that I enjoy goals and nice plays. Right now I think Messi is the best. Bergkamp had some VERY VERY nice goals for sure and it's great you name a fellow Dutch man but he's not best ever I am pretty sure.

    Messi > Zidane.

    Also think he's just a better version of Maradona.
    Pretty hard to compare a forward to a midfielder on a goals record.

    Re: Who is the best player you've ever seen?

    Zidane was a sensational player. I rate him on the tier below Maradona, Best and Pele pretty much.

    I think at present him and Messi have a similiar footing in football's greatest, but Messi has the potential to become one of the absolute best, alongside those 3, possibly better, who knows.

    And he scores goals...!
