In a world with players like Zidane and Ronaldinho, how can George Best (I watched all the footage) be claimed as the best of all time. What am I missing? As far as I can see, Zidane is way ahead of the field. He creates magic EVERY time he touches the ball......

GB played on soden pitches, with a heavy ball and there was no such thing as specialist fitness and diet coaches and pain killing injections.

Teams would play over 60 games a season at least also.

Nowdays it's all large squads, undersoil heating, fitness and diet coaches, pain killing injections and pitches like a carpet with light weight footballs.

r.i.p. GB you were the best at everything you did.
