    Messi's a little fairy-boy who looks like his mammy cuts his hair. Also, 'Lionel' is a ridiculous name.
    In a previous job several of my colleagues would call me Lionel on a routine basis.

    Also, my grandma's last boyfriend was called Lionel.

    And all while using absolutely terrifying quantities of cocaine and fvcking every hooker south of the Austrian border. Imagine how good he could have been if he'd been sober!

    It's acceptable for old men to be called Lionel - particularly old, Jewish men. The best footballer in the world, however, has no business being called Lionel. It's just wrong.

    One of the reasons people choose him over Messi, I think.

    Messi is the better player imo but there is no question that Maradonna is the more interesting 'character'.

    Many of Maradonna's - pretty much all his matches in the 82, 86 and 90 world cups and Italian football was always pretty popular in Canada back in the day, they had games on the telly every weekend. Quite the large Italian Canadian population in Toronto.

    Cruyff I saw little of. Danish football just didn't have the following needed to have it televised in Canada back then.

    Nothing to do with 'character'. It's about achievements on the pitch. Maradona performed miracles with teams of ordinary players around him. Messi's achievements have been in teams full of superstars.

    It's t'other way about, I reckon; had he remained sober, we'd never even have heard of him. Everyone needs a motivation.

    "But a lot have found it difficult wearing the number 9 shirt for The Arsenal."
