Vote For Your All Time Best Footballer. Pele/maradona/zidane?

RULE 1: Please this thread must not end up in bloodshed. It's not a battleground, just a polling centre. Do your thing.

These guys are retired now. I don't know much about Pele, but Maradona's last for Argentina was against Nigeria in 94. Banned for drugs.

Zidane's last was this month, Left with a stamp on Materazzi's chest.

Great guys I admit, but there has to be a best of the bests. (Pictures Please?)

I vote Zidane because i saw him play. (in my lifetime)

I think Diego Maradona is the best He played amongst mediocres and won the world cup scoring the best goal of all time Pele played amonst stars Didi,Vava,Tostao,Carlos Alberto, Garrincha,Rivelino, Jairzinho,Gerson and they won Imagine Ronaldinho in Sunderland if they should win premiership.

04/08/2006: 1st thing about an internet poll it is used by young people who have never seen Pele play, as many old people do not use the internet this is why Maradona won the award.2ndly it is not Peles fault that Brazil had the best team ever and if anything if he stands out from such a team this makes him even better. Argentina won the 78 World Cup without Maradona and also qualified for the 90 Final whilst he was too flabby to even play. The 86 World Cup was won as this was played in South America where only two teams are going to win anyway. Pele helped Brazil win in EUROPE in 1958, still the only team to win outside its continent, all this at just 17.Much of what people say about Maradona being better is based around exposed TV coverage which was not around regularly in Peles early career.If Maradona made Napoli a better team then what Pele did to Santos was almost superhuman (9 league titles in 13 years)in what is a team which barely stands as one of the greats in Brazil.Having 1 world cup and a few good seasons doesnt compare with a career of 1300 or so goals, 3 world cups and a 15 year career at the top. By the time Maradona was 30 he was playing in the Spanish 2nd division. Napoli also went 26 games unbeaten after his drug ban, where he boasted they would be relegated without him.

Maradona by a million miles.

He is the best player to have ever played the round-leather game.
