Maradona

I was putting some links to some videos of Pelusa in the Whateva thread but I think he deserves a thread for his vids and pics here...just football related, not nonsense, specially rare vids or pics...this should be an sticky Loco...(and NOPE, is not a thread to be located in the multimedia bullshit, he deserves a normal thread in the main forum).

Apart from that, under his name, we can add other players, like Di Stefano, Sivori, Kempes, (if not we will have to make a lot of sticky threads) whomever that really made his name, so we can make some sort of archive...let's try to discuss some plays all in a relaxing way, enjoying it, compare capabilities with modern players, etc...

you can talk about football actually, nope?..I hope


I found this fella to have lots of very good vids of Diego, not great quality, but very good material...ENJOY

this is a good idea. I love seeing the old videos. My office gave me "FIFA World Cup 1978-2002" DVD set for Christmas.

A clip from 15 years ago on Australian TV. We recorded it and I've kept that tape ever since.



P.S - I'll be uploading some more Maradona videos to YouTube after I finish with Baggio & Zico videos. They're great clips, but unfortunetly instead of using subtitles they dubbed over their voice in English :rollani: Still great to watch though.

That Napoli training session with the tune "Life is Life" is one of my all time favourites.

This is one of my favourite goals of his, semi final vs Belgium. The art of dribbling and touch is now described to you by M10.

You're welcome Fangio, and I've been watching those videos already

Here's another YouTube user who got in contact with me after I put my videos up. He has a few less seen Maradona videos as well:

It's not a training session, it was the UEFA Cup semi-final second leg in Munich against Bayern.

Diego Maradona, Ciro Ferrara and Francesco Romano tell the story much better than I do:

You know I am glad you've said that because it was the crowd in the background, for some reason I simply cannot explain I thought it looked like they were at a training ground but when you see him with full kit on, socks included part of me thought it was a match day. Thanks for clearing that up.

this is the day England found out what the fuss was about.
That day he beat a few players and was one on one with Clemence, he shot but it creeped past the outside of the post.

He said when he got home, his younger brother said "why didn't you beat the goalkeeper?", and he said he'd done his best. His brother insisted, "no you had the time and space to beat the goalkeeper as well, why didn't you?".

That memory flashed back after he got the goal against England in 1986, he says subliminally he must've been remembering his brothers words and that's why he didn't shoot when Shilton rushed out of his goal in the exact same situation.

Nope, I insist you blame it on a certain Tunisian official who let him off with it

No only the second one

I'll try cut out the clips of him talking about that incident, and then a little bit about him and his obsession of handballs. He was saying something like "other players don't try and reach beyond their head, I did"

I'll see if I can get both of those clips up tomorrow sometime, so check back in here.

Here it all is in one video. I didn't have the time to check the relevant parts and edit it accordingly, but the whole thing should be great viewing no matter what he's talking about

I hope we get to see some interesting information about some of the other players mentioned in the opening post, as it feels like the usual Maradona-fest at the moment. To kill two birds with one stone, here's di Stefano's description of Sivori (taken from an early-60s biography): "Sivori is a "genial" player but he still can't free himself from the trickery and he plays for himself too much". I have the feeling that there's a huge dichotomy between di Stefano's philosophy of football and modus operandi and what the Argentinian ideal is. Am I right? Certainly, in my head I can draw a line from Sivori to Maradona to Messi with honourable mentions to others, but find it hard to "place" di Stefano in that context. Some people even called him "el Aleman" (the German!) for goodness sake.

More info from that biography to follow, including di Stefano's best XI of that period.
