  1. dummiesoot liked a post in a topic by Badger in Iker Casillas   
    Was never sure if Casillas was good or just very lucky. Perhaps he was good and lucky. He seemed to make a lot of saves where the ball just hit him without him knowing a great deal about it. Obviously it happened too often for it to be luck, but he was a very instinctive keeper, who seemed to have a knack for getting in the way rather than goalkeeping brilliance - but it's no bad trait for a goalie.
    I personally do think he was overrated, but never the less had a fantastic career.

    I would love to find the article relating to an experiment - it was in a magazine I read in a hospital waiting room about 15yrs ago.
    Basically it was an experiment to determine at what distance does putting skill and luck cross over. It was conducted with a mechanical device replicating identical putts and measuring ball spread over various distances, green speeds, weather, etc.
    It determined that after approximately 12' on a typical PGA green, the natural microvariations of grass, wind, ball, club, etc - seen a deviation from the "perfect" putting line that means fewer than 50% of perfect putts would drop. 
    I'm sure the term "perfect", was based on the statistical average line, thus the line a putt would average the middle of the hole.

    Could well have become the greatest ever if he didn't have such horrific injuries. The player at Real Madrid was a shadow of what he once was. We never got to see Ronaldo peak.
    Ronaldo in the late 90s was just so far ahead of everybody. So direct, powerful, brilliant dribbler and brilliant finisher. When he was on it, and he was most weeks, he just destroyed defences. He was phenomenal before the knee injuries. It's testiment to his talent that he was able to adapt his style and still remain a top player after his injuries.
    Mbappe reminds me a lot of him with his style.

    And he was still a teenager! He just utterly destroyed defences - ran straight through them with skill and power.
    Folk forget Ronaldo barely kicked a ball for 3yrs between 99-02 with 2x knee tendon ruptures.
    He was never the same player as the one in that video - his injuries and attitude robbed us of seeing him at his peak - but came back fat and lacking the explosiveness of old and still.... won the 2002 world cup for Brazil and WPotY.
    Give Mbappe Messi's close control and dribbling ability and you have something like Ronaldo. I don't think any player has made such an impact on the game before his 21st Birthday as Ronaldo did.

    Given his Celtic persuasion, I think it's a massive compliment to Jim Duffy that - outwith the odd idiot - you never read or hear anything bad about him in Rangers circles. Whenever his names brought up on here, you always get comments - like those above - from folk who've had personal interactions with him, all saying positive things.
    Genuinely seems to be one of footballs good guys, and always comes across as fair and objective.

    Plenty of brilliant goals.
     
    But in terms of brilliance and happening on the highest stage of all, ie a major final - hard to look past Van Basten and Zidane.
    Goals that have surpassed the memory of the victory.
