RIP , Ray Clemence terrific Goalie one of the best. Not probably quite as good as Jennings, or Shilton but proven England Goalkeeper sadly gone.

RIP Ray Clemence.
He would surely have had more England caps but had the misfortune of being around at the same time as Peter Shilton

I preferred him over Shilton.

Former football agent Eric Hall, famed for his "monster monster" catchphrase, has died at the age of 73.

What a genius Maradona was. Messi and Diego by far and away the best players I’ve seen to play the game. As one commentator famously said of him as he scored his wonder goal against England, “different class, different class”.

Sad day for football, RIP Diego.

Maradona is, for me, the best player ever. Absolutely sublime talent. Lived a full and very colourful life but loved to play the game. Absolutely loved it. Rest easy DM.

Would agree 100% For me better than Pele as Pele was a great player in a Brazil team full of great players. Brazil would likely have won the world cup without Pele. Maradona almost singlehandly (pun intended) took an ordinary Argentina team to World Cup glory and then the final 4 years later as well as making Napoli the best team in Italy for a few years despite them being fairly average.

Too young for Pele? Who for me stands head and shoulders. In fact I'm not sure Diego gets in that 70 Brazil team, the greatest I've ever seen. Cruyff would be second the epitome of finesse and vision. Best #3, not his fault he was Irish.. A perfectly balanced footballer with skill at least comparable to Diegos' if not greater.

Pele, 1970 on the decline so not old enough to see in his pomp. My old fella always maintained Duncan Edwards would have been better than any of them.
Opinions as with every thread on here. ;-)

Arguments will forever rage over who is the greatest player ever. Diego is certainly one of them. Such a shame his decline was accelerated by a cocaine addiction. At his best he was unplayable.
RIP Diego

Wow, Maradona dead.

I know he's had health issues for a long time, but it's still a shocker.

An amazing talent who lived life to the full and brought passion and entertainment on the pitch.

Probably the second greatest for me, as Cruyff is still the player who takes my breath away when I watch film of him playing.

Shame he tarnished himself with England supporters, including me, with the hand of God incident.

Great players shouldn't need to cheat like that.

RIP and thanks for the memories Diego.
