Marta vs. Mia Hamm?

Is there any comparison? Mia is the greatest female player ever, but if Marta close to her level? She would need to win this WC but she has become a very interesting player

Where were you when we lost 1-7?

If Marta keeps this up, she could be on par with a 4th division club player.

And that's not saying anything bad about her.

I am sorry mate, you´ve got lost. This is a football forum.

Ronn Moss, you can stand under my umbrella. :nervous:

Marta is 10X the player Ham is or ever will be.

But Hamm is hot, therefore marketable in an abandoned market; even the US female league disappeared. So you still see her on Gatorade commercials after retired, while Marta can at most hope at a brief stint in a Nike commercial or the local feijoada distributor.
Sad but true, the only marketable womens' sport is tennis.

Marta is getting the exposure she deserves here in Sweden.

She's the best player in the world without any doubts and it was a very smart choice by Umeå to sign her. Now, I've been following womens football for quite a while and it's getting a lot better with time.

She's been driving Umeå and Brazil forward for a couple of years now, especially Brazil because Umeå has a couple of great players anyways.

There's no doubt she's better than Mia Hamm, at least that's what I think now that football has become even better, yet she's killing her opponents time after time.

I'm definitely no expert on womens football, but I've seen a few matches with both, and whereas Mia Hamm was much more atletic than most her peers in the womens game and had a decent technique to go along with it (the Germans have a star like that... Birgit Prinz), Marta is much, much, much more skilled technically. To be honest I never saw someone like her in the womens game.

She pulls things off where you think, OK, the guys would be very happy about that one.

APATHY: A word now fallen into disuse due to a lack of concern for it.

Nice that Brazil lost and to see the players cry. Watching Brazilians cry is my favorite hobby.

And rightfully so. Tennis female players are usually hot and can play the sport. Women are not made to play soccer... they can play it... go ahead... but don't tell me its good football.

And I personally do not think Mia Hamm is hot nor that she is more famous because of that. Maybe her being American and Nike being a huge sponsor is...

Make Xtratime great again.

If you are trying to be stupid... you made a good point.

No man... I am not saying that... I was just answering to bern saying that Ham will get more praise because she is hot... when to me its not about that... its ALSO about her being American and Nike being on her ass.

Make Xtratime great again.
