Bloke behind is looking on in awe at his arse cleavage.

If not for the other, Ronny/Messi would have swept the Balon D'Ors every season the other won it.

Madrid won a couple of titles and nothing in Europe when he was there, and Inter won a UEFA Cup and nothing domestically. Both those sides were choc full of great players from back to front .. so hardly like he was relied upon to do a Maradonna and drag them to glory single handedly.

For Madrid .. CR7 - 311 goals, 292 games. R9 - 83 goals, 127 games. Tells its own story on which Ronny leaves the insurmountable legacy ..
Much easier to score these days...

True to some extent - but further back still, a player like Voller managed numerous goal-a-game seasons where Ronaldo could not.

Never top scorer in Serie A. Top scorer domestically in only 3 of 11 seasons in top European leagues. That cannot be explained away by the generation he played in as it was against contemporaries. A truly great player it goes without saying, but best work done by early 20s. Only nostalgia holds him to the same level as Messi/C Ronaldo.

What really happened before the 98 final?

Wasn’t the official word epileptic fit or something?

Yeah was an epileptic fit/convulsions. Others have said it was something to do with the level of pressure he was under I believe.

The fact they made him play, rumours it was more Nike pressuring him to play, was ridiculous. They even released the team sheet with him not playing before re-introducing him to it.

Reaction to the painkillers they were pumping him full of at Nike and the Brazilian FA’s insistence, allegedly.

Decent doc, not amazing but felt a bit dusty at times when you see him hurt, the knee going on his Inter return after a minute was brutal

Worth a watch but it wasn’t really a top tier event like say The Last Dance that could interweave the various narratives going on.

He comes across tremendously well though & his mrs has got a fantastic arse.
