Is Aids McGayday The Greatest Player in Europe?

Written by John McCrae

Wednesday, 07 April 2010

Having just watched the Barca v Gooners game and a dazzling 4 goal performance from Argentinian Lionel Messi,

I got to thinking "Will this youngster ever replace wee Aids as the best player in Europe?"

Having read the reports in the Scottish press over the last few years, I thought that I would never live to see any

player scale the heights that Aids has. Every match report contains details of his amazing ball skills, his trickery

and his deadly eye for goal. I have watched with interest every television game where he and his team, 666 FC*,

feature. I confess I am stunned at the ineptitude of the editors of these football programmes because they seem

to edit out all the bits where Aids takes on the opposition and runs rings round them. In fact, I'm sure it is some

media bias against wee Aids because the only clips they show are the ones where he runs rings round himself.

The same mhedia, of course, awarded all the Player of the Year awards to Aids in season 2007 - 2008. He scored

a staggering 7 goals. He narrowly missed winning the Eurovision Song Contest that year too. For Ireland, of course.

This was the year that Kris Boyd of Rangers scored 25 goals, including 2 in the League Cup Final and the decisive

goal in the penalty shoot out and another 2 in the Scottish Cup Final. Football, as we know, is about entertainment.

Scoring goals is not considered entertaining by the Scottish mhedia.

If I were Harry Hill, I would have Aids and Leo in a tv studio going at each other as I declare "McGayday or Messi?

Who is the better? There's only one way to find out. Fiiigghhhttt!"

Better you examine their records and make up your own mind.

*666 FC is the new name for Sellik FC. I feel 666 FC

is an acceptable substitute, to paraphrase the Good Book " ... the number of the beast is 666."

That is the most senile, dumbest, no brainer question I have ever seen in my over 50 years of playing and Managing in Football.Lionel Messi better than magical Aids Mcgreedy????? What kind of drugs are you on

man?

Don't you know that is why ra Sellic get robbed every week in the SPL?

It's a FIFA/UEFA/Ballon d'Or conspiracy to keep ra Sellic out of the Champions league because all these organisations have crowned Messie the best in Europe and the World and they don't want to admit they have made a massive mistake, which would become very evident if wee Aids got to show his talent on the world stage instead of just the magnificent splendour of the Paranoia Palace.

There has never been a player like Aids in the history of football and he is so fast of foot that nobody really sees what miracles he can do.

Wee Aids is better than Messi, Christiano Ronaldo and Rooney all put together......and what a smashing singer he is an aw.

:D

McGeady is a joy to behold. the way he takes the ball down the wing, steadfastly refusing to pass to his own team, taking on the defender... and running it out for a throw in.

Oh yes, he has class alright.
