    To compare this to Maradona is laughable. This doens't even top Giggs' goal.
    Also, Maradonna made pylons out of the England national team. Against a decent national team, probably the last England team that was not overrated, in the quarterfinals(correct me if I'm wrong) in a World Cup, not a league match against a bunch of mid table dwellers.

    You guys are comparing apples to oranges. Spain and England play completely different styles of football. Quotes taken from Frank Lampard and Julio Baptista from articles posted on skysports today.

    Lampard from his talks with Gudjohnsen about life in Barca:

    "Lampard also admitted that the training approach at Chelsea and Barcelona appeared to be different.

    "There is also a lot of difference between the training," he said.

    "At Chelsea we look at the physical aspect a lot, but at Barcelona it is more technique based and he [Gudjohnsen] enjoys that because he is a quality player."


    Bapstista:

    "The teams from the north of England are terrible," said Baptista in The Times.

    "When we play them I have counted their centre-backs booting up to 30 long balls upfield per game.

    <snipped about how ****ty the weather is>

    "Premiership football is very hard. I am Brazilian and I enjoy playing the ball, making clever touches and taking bicycle kicks. Arsene Wenger does not forbid me from doing them, but the game is so fast I don't even have time to think about them.

    "The moment you stop to think, someone has taken the ball off you and knocked you to the ground. Over here they value a corner kick more than a fancy flick.

    "I am lucky to be with Arsenal, as they are a team that likes to play proper football."

    I know the difference between La Liga and the EPL. Instead of apples and oranges, it's more like men and pu$$ies when it comes to defending, and the pu$$ies being the la liga defense/tacklers. That is why I think Messi's goal against a mid table La Liga team, although still a beautiful finish after a great individual effort, does not compare to Maradona's against the England national team.

    I know Chelsea focuses on being physical. Lampard gave Xabi Alonso a nice welcome by breaking Xabi's ankle with a tackle.

    Baptista is being a biatch. Two teams from the north of England are ahead of Arsenal in the EPL standings. Two teams from the North of England are in the Champions League Semis. Two teams from the north of England has a combined 33 League Championships, and 7 European Cups.

    English teams have always been a force in European football, except for a few years in the 90's when they were banned due to hooliganism.

    He is a classic case of another South American having a hard time adjusting to the EPL. He has not proved himself top clubs because he only scored 8 goals in 25 games with Real Madrid last season.

    I agree that Arsenal plays free flowing football, which suit his style of play, but why isn't he scoring more goal, especially in the absense of Henry?

    Besides, Xabi Alonso scores in his own half all the time...

    It was great goal. PERIOD. I LOVE the EPL, and I LOVE La Liga. Soccer is the worlds greatest sport whether it's played in England, China, Colombia, etc., but please don't say that Messi's goal was crap because the defenders in Spain are pu$$ies because that is just ****ing retarded.

    Here is a great video (Thanks Kingslaw) showing Messi's & Maradona's goal side by side and they are very similar. And before any of you go ape-**** stupid on me I know that Maradona's goal is still the greatest of all time for several reasons.

    EDIT: Please note how Maradona makes the English defenders look like pu$$ies.

    FSC is actually showing the Fiorentina game in Serie A tomorrow instead of Catania for a change. When I was over there I went to a bar on the Sunday to catch the games, it was like an NFL Sunday except the whole thing only lasted two hours.

    Well its the one everyone's seen. FA Cup from '99.

    Here, watch this video to understand the gravity of the situation. The goal as you can guess is at the end.
