Hi ed001 loe your articles mate. didn't think this site could get any better but your articles have done just that. don't worry not going to add to your massive list just a question. Is there any player who you don't know much about that you are really looking forward to researching.

{Ed001's Note - lots of them mate, it is surprising how little I knew until I started researching. Ferenc Puskas I knew so little I was embarrassed when I read his achievements that I could be so ignorant of a player quite so good.}

{Ed001's Note - you have to when you read what he did, especially under the circumstances, he was a supreme goalscorer.}

Is Pele on your list of articles, ed? It always feels like there's two camps of people, those who think he's the best ever and those who think that he was never truly tested as he stayed in Brazil most of his career before moving to the US. Would be really interesting to read your take on his career.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, he has to be in there for all the stuff after he retired as well, all the frauds etc.}

That's true, didn't his son also get imprisoned for 30 years for dealing drugs or something? got to say Pele has always seemed shadier than Maradona to me, it's just that he's got better PR (I may be wrong though! ) .

Ed, Puskas was a god. I saw a documentary of the legendary Hungarian team he played for and saw the highlights of the 6-2 victory vs England at Wembley (a record till this day) and he scored such a brilliant goal that the defender he laid waste to afterwards said he had never seen someone with such quick feet. In the 1950 WC, Hungary was leading Germany 2-0 and Puskas who was injured in the semis, hit the bar and at 3-0, the game is over and that Hungarian team who had humiliated Germany in the group stages, would have won the WC at a canter. Alas, it was not to be. His exploits with Real Madrid next to the monument called Alredo Di Stefano is the stuff of legends.
