    I agree - Pele over Maradona - 1000 club goals for Pele. Plus Pele never used his hands to score a goal...

    Maradona, because Pele played against weak teams, in weak leagues

    Plus when Brazil won the world cup Pele was never the most important player, there are many players who have been more important. Zinedine Zidane has had much more influence for his team in the international game, as well as Cruijff, Platini, Puskas, Michael Laudrup, Hagi, Scifo. There are too many players who have been more magical over the years with teams of much less skill.

    He is a legend of course but just because he scored 1000 goals does not make him the best, there are much more important things. Also as David Pleat said statistics are damn lies

    Overall my favourite is Zidane but just because I saw him in my lifetime, also Ronaldinho. I have watched some games of Pele and the opposition was really bad or his teammate was better (Garrincha, Jairzinho). There are many other legendary Brazilians but because the game has changed so much no one will ever say Zico or Ronaldo or Ronaldinho was as talented as Pele was. It is not fair but it is a difficult argument.

    As I say there have been man legends of the international game that do not get enough respect. I believe Pele is overrated, I just do not rate the Brazilian league, especially in the old days it was not even a unified league.

    Pele was as good as there has ever been and played the game in the most honourable and truest sense, a gentleman whom you can respect.
    Maradona was a talented player but has the morals of an alley cat.

    Pele.

    I'd actually put Johan Cruyff ahead of Maradona.

    Pele...I dont rate Maradona at all, guys like him who have a great talent but decide to ruin themselves with drugs and similar problems dont deserve to have their name mentioned as ones of the best ever. To be "the greatest", or "one of the great", you have to be great on and of the pitch. And a guy who is know mostly for 3 things..two of which are against any kind of sportsmanship doesnt cut it for me. There were numbers of great players before and after him that I rate much higher.

    Pele without a doubt. I agree with previous posts by CTW01 and funkfish. Pele played our game in the most honourable manner and to be able to do what he did with heavier boots and a heavier ball is unbelievable.

    I think the total that is used includes goals from when he was a kid or something stupidly wrong with the tally anyway.

    For me The greatest ever strikers will be:

    1. Greaves - One of a kind, will never be better. ever.
    2. Ferenc Puskas
    3. Maradona
    4. Pele - World cup player, for me football is about playing in the best leagues as well as doing well for your country.
    5. Gerd Muller
    6. Marco Van Basten

    Maradona for me. You can take the boy out of the 'Barrio', But you can't take the 'Barrio' out of the boy.

    Give the 'Rebalde' a break. There is a Church in Argentina named after him.

    I didnt have the chance to see both of them play like sejay but from what i have seen its a difficult one to judge.

    Pele was a goal machine and the cheat was a genius.

    I would have to say pele........no maracheat............no peledonna............I cant decide.
