    Easily the best player I've ever saw, not even a close comparison for me.

    Mad as a brush, RIP legend.

    RIP. One of the greatest players of all time. Sadly, something like this was always likely given how he lived.

    He was so good they couldney get anywhere near him, and this was back in the day when tackles were brutal.

    Brilliant player. First saw him at Hampden when he scored his first international goal and generally took the pish out of us that day. Yes he was a flawed character but most genius's are and I will always be grateful to him for his "hand of *" goal against a nation who I am so happy to say still have nightmares about it

    Football has changed. The pinnacle of the game over Messi’s entire playing career has been the Champions League.

    You can make a reasonable argument for one player being better than the other, but I don’t think the World Cup angle stands up to much scrutiny, personally.

    RIP to the great man anyway. Too young, but sadly not unexpected given the way he lived his life.
