Football had not got big money in it back then and Europe might not of had the best leagues

^Back then World cups were good but now club football comes 1st for players because of money mainly, the last few world cups were sh*t
The last World Cup was highly competitive. Winning the World Cup is still the highest honor a football player can receive.

That's not to say Messi has to win one to be considered the greatest when his career his over. He's more of a facilitator for Argentina as he doesn't have to do that with Barcelona, as he plays with the dynamic Xaviesta duo. He's only 24 and he can truly transcend the sport even further for many more years to come.

A Messi-Sanchez-Neymar trio is scary to think of.

but thats basically what you're doing

disrespecting pele's legacy because of what YOU deem is inadequate competition in his day

bottom line is pele's career is the benchmark, the reference point, the measuring gauge of an elite football player who innovated and revolutionized the sport

and you calling messi "messiah" only shows your obviously biased. messi wouldnt be messi if the blueprint to be who he is wasnt already provided by pele

messi is a great player but dont get stupid
I'll still have to say Pele is considered the greatest at this point, due to his accolades.

Diego Maradona is the greatest football player I have ever seen play with my own two eyes. I've watched so many old matches of his and he was a brilliant player.

It's either Pele or Maradona at this point if we're discussing the best. That doesn't mean Pele still doesn't go out of his way to bad mouth Messi every chance he gets. This quote was less hateful than usual.

"yes playing against what today is high school competition"
Back then players would not of been as fit and fast thats the main difference, its like that in other sports aswell (athletics world record times would highlight the difference in athletes now and then most). In 40-50 years people will look back and say Messis opponents were sub par

Pele had incredible talent and if he was put through the same training regimes as the players now he would run rings around them particularly because in the 70`s fouls were far less common because the rules were less strict so defenders now would not be able to hack lumps out of him

Lebron James are you kidding me? i get the feeling he is a complete bottler from the 643263263526 threads about him everyday, Messi has scored in and been man of the match in 2 champions league finals so dont compare.

Peles Brazil team were the best team ever if the Barcelona team now isnt so it was just as easy if not easier for Pele

If Messie doesn't win even 1 world cup, he'll never be the GOAT.

Game set and match my bollocks, Messi is scoring 50 goals a season at the highest level and he isnt an out and out striker like Pele was. Messi has 33 goals and 16 a.ssists already this season, he wont score a 1000+ goals but his goals to games ratio will be really good

If its based solely on World cups there is no argument as its either Pele or one of his team mates that are the best ever because nobody else has won it that many times. They were both the star players in the 2 greatest teams ever, its very hard to compare players from such different eras football is a lot different now
messi has constantly been surrounded with a plethora of talent when he plays for argentina, his success for barcelona is based on the league rewarding the play of creativity which oozes from messi and the brillance of some of his teammates especially iniesta. Messi has played with many of his barcelona teammates since he was young, natural cohesiveness develops but being the brilliant player he is, it DEFv should translate better on the world cup stage. Pele >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>messi in any fukking era
