I remember watching this guy Cubillas of Peru in the World Cup
when I was a kid - probably one of the best free-kick takers ever.
Every time Peru had a free kick outside the box
you just waited for that ball to go in the top corner.

The top two when you search on him on youtube shows
one with the outside of his right foot versus Scotland in '78
and the other one a fantastic curler versus Brazil in '75.

Imagine if this guy had today's kit (ie that Predator boot). Amazing stuff.

"Imagine if this guy had today's kit (ie that Predator boot)."
You reckon that he would break his metatarsal?

We should have a dissensus football match, might get the blood pressure down. Or up.

12-05-2006, 12:05 PM
its a lovely idea, but there's not enough people here who play.

12-05-2006, 12:30 PM
No, I never really thought it would happen. Still, there's a kickabout in Regent's Park on Sunday at two o'clock if you're interested...

12-05-2006, 12:42 PM
i'm having a kickabout in bethnal this sunday. who plays in regents park? a group of friends? or one of those things where people just turn up weirdly. i might come down one week. whats the standard like? how many people? how serious do they take it?

12-05-2006, 12:52 PM
I play in a team in a five-a-side league on Wednesdays but it's a fairly low standard. It's a league run by SANZA so it's loads of Saffas, Aussies and Kiwis who are very fit but don't really understand the game.
Anyhow the lads from my team are going for kick around this Sunday, we sent an email round the league to see if anyone else wants to play and I'll guess we'll grab however many extras we need to make up two sides. So it won't be especially high standard and it won't be at all serious - we've tried organising weekend games in winter but only one person turned up (me) and he didn't have the ball.
I'll let you know if we do it again, we probably will.

It took some finding, but here's some footage of an upcoming star hitting the back of the net with some style.

"robhino takes the pizzle"
Yeah, but when he played against Arsenal they just looked unimpressed, pushed him off the ball and built another attack.

I never did see Maradona, but I had the pleasure of seeing George Weah
when he played for AC Milan (scoring three goals vs Bari).
And he was easily the best player I've ever seen in a live match.
This is quite a nice "whole pitch" run from home in another match -

Yeah - you can easily spend hours watching footie stuff on youtube -
Maradona even makes "Life is Life" enjoyable, warming up to it, shoelaces
undone http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hx4V_Rie6mA. Amazing -
as some of the stuff in
Maradona - the original http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tCoMtPuL3Q.

My better half is already sick of the World Cup a month before it starts.

thats robinho playing for santos. he hasnt made much of an impression at real yet but seems to have kept his place in the team so he can't of been that ineffectual. i like tricks and stuff anyway and the videos i like are just loads of tricks. thats why i've watched that maradonna the original thing about 5000 times. then me and my step brother try to replicate the tricks at work with our special skill enhancing mini football, and fail,miserably.

i remember that weah goal. its good. solo goals i can remember go
1.maradonna vs england
2.giggsvs arsenal
4.weah vs whoever the fuck it was
3.barnes vs brazil
4.henry vs real

i'm not really a team person, i like individual heroics and showboating.

mine too, especially as my seven year old has become a crazed statto through collecting and swapping stickers - i'm nipping off down the pub this afternoon to watch the FA cup to escape him and his incessant footie chatter. At least i don't ask her arcane footie questions over breakfast

thanks for these youtube moments - i love the way weah pirouettes round some sloppy midfield defending, he moves so beautifully.

i'm off to see what great Hoddle/Ardiles moments might be on there

13-05-2006, 02:12 PM

the last goal in this selection - my sweet lord indeed

14-05-2006, 12:56 AM
ok, this is EASILY my favourite ever dissensus thread!! :) :) :)

man, i never realised Hoddle was that good..!

I agree that pure skills are the best thing to watch (although big sweeping team moves are also good too) ronaldinho is disgustingly skillful :cool:

a dissensus football match is a great idea..

idlerich - i'm going to cycle to uffington soon.. just though i'd let you know.

Here's some more Diego, I like the kicking he does 2:50 into this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtMwqqS8vcI)
and here's the great man set to the Arctic Monkeys (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zd7mujM7mbQ) .
This is my fav though, Maradona in Napoli (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TClYDs3yG74) - deflated goalies, parades in the streets, it must have been magic to have been around.

And let me slip in a Tony Yeboah classic (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xAFTHchD0Q) and this Igor Belanov goal vs Belgium in '86 (goal 25) (http://www.geocities.com/cyugoles/lista13.htm) . A goal I will never forget watching on telly. I love the way he did a floated run in parallell outside the box leaving the defender and then topped it with a shot the reverse top corner. That last site has some Roger Milla (and Platt) as well - http://www.geocities.com/cyugoles/lista12.htm

i can see you as Viera like - snappy tackles and great distribution

kpunk as maverick winger who drifts in and out of matches

padraig as hapless scottish keeper? ;)

are you calling me Peter Crouch?

14-05-2006, 12:05 PM
you consider crouch to be 'elegant'?

14-05-2006, 12:22 PM
no, i was just worried you might be suggesting i was a beanpole

very happy to be called elegant!!

I, of course, would want to be hoddle, a man who never headed the ball!!!

luka, i had some doubts about you after your grime thread ;) BUT you are obviously a badman cos Le Tissier is without doubt the greatest footballer ever!! He was a proper hero of mine when I was a kid (i got him to sign a poster of himself from shoot magazine when i was about 15. I got it framed.) Have you seen that video called matthew le tissier: unbelievable ?? Probably my favourite video of all time.

14-05-2006, 11:52 PM
"idlerich - i'm going to cycle to uffington soon.. just though i'd let you know"
Cool. As a matter of interest where are you starting from?
I reckon we could get together a five-a-side game.
Something possibly more our level


Le Tissier should have had more caps for sure.
