Maradona hits back by saying...


New Argentinian coach Diego Maradona has re-opened an old debate by saying Geoff Hurst's controversial World Cup final goal in 1966 never crossed the line.

- thats exactly what me and my mates discussed at the pub the other day, having maradona in charge would just be like England having Gazza :laugh:

Been listening to talk sport recently and the bookies they have on (paddy power, coral) have slashed the odds from argentina being favourites to win the next world cup, don to like 5th favourites since maradona took over.

I largely agree with that although Maradonna seems to have better people around him now and as a figure head I imagine it could work (essentially a Klinsmann - Low partnership with even more emphasis on the deputy or deputies).

Also Argentina have got a surfeit of talent and established pattern of play so maybe someone with strong ideas and motivational skills is more what they need than a truly excellent coach.

Butcher isn't in charge though is he? I think George Burley is the Manager.

Agree with your sentiment though.

He was absolute box office. Rock n roll. No fucks given. Maverick. Genius.

Had anyone watched his documentary? It’s brilliant.

Same. I remember ‘82 a bit, but I was only 7.

That game v England was pure Maradona. Zero fucks given and absolute insane talent.

And then what he did with Napoli was absolutely stunning.

Same. Me and my Dad. I think I was wide-eyed with my head in my hands. I remember my Dad going "WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW" and I was just open mouthed. Must've been similar reactions all over England.

Remember how good he was against Belgium

Yeah, it was on channel 4 earlier in the year.

Well worth checking out for anyone who hasn't seen it.

He went totally off the rails at Napoli. Probably the worst club in the worst he could have joined. Drugs and the Camorra What could go wrong?

Here's a great article on his time there and the documentary

I remember thinking (obviously with a slightly different POV) that the hand ball goal was a problem. Imagining the media narrative if he had won it with that. I mean it was bonkers anyway but that... just after the war.... it felt like he knew that, and that the way he could fix it was by scoring one of the most beautiful and audacious goals you’ve ever seen. It was staggering. I’d never seen a player just get the ball, run at goal, beat everyone and score!!!

The only other goal that left me like that was Van Bastens volley.

He dismantled a very good Belgium team with similar skills. I absolutely adored him. And he was a rebel His love of the marching powder clearly had a lasting effects, the doc alludes to a lot of his late nights with the Mafia when he was playing the day after He was nuts. Didn’t know how to say ‘no’.

He and the rest of Argentina probably enjoyed the first goal even more. 'viveza criolla' at its best

Quote:
Loosely translated as ‘native cunning’, viveza criolla is the art of mischievous deception particular to Uruguay and Argentina. In the words of anthropologist Eduardo P. Archetti, it encourages a “capacity to cheat where necessary”.

One of its central principles is to “gain a psychological edge wherever and whenever possible” – and, rather wonderfully, it is all the more welcome if it is against your biggest rivals. Daniel Rosa, a journalist with Uruguayan publication El Pais, said:

"There’s an expression in Uruguay about how you want to win. If it’s in the last minute and with a moment that enrages your opponent, all the better. That is viveza: knowing how to gain any advantage."

Wow. I just listened to the translation of this in his Lineker interview, but, I didnt know it was part of the culture!

You can't compete with that. You have to, begrudgingly admire it.

I can't recall the details (it is in the documentary) exactly, but that fight was connected to this, slightly late, slightly high, shocker.

Absolutely. It entirely explains away Luis Suarez as well.
