Re: Unpopular Sport opinions
Muller better than Pele? I can only assume you've seen very little footage of Pele. When Pele first emerged, no one had ever seen a talent quite like him. I actually don't like him at all as a man, and I do agree that FIFA do trump him up a lot and perhaps make him seem better than he was (as his peak was actually earlier on in his career, and somewhat short lived after injury took away his blistering pace, ala fat Ronaldo), but there is no doubting his extraordinary talent.
Also worth noting that back in the 70s, the quality in European football wasn't that much better than in South America.
I suspect you think your being quite 'cool' in having that opinion and not believing in 'FIFA's agenda/conspiracy' but really your just being a massive idiot. You can ask any football expert worth their salt who have seen a lot of each of Muller and Pele, ask them who's better and there is only one answer. I rate Muller quite highly too, but come on. Pele was legitimately an amazing player, and the only forwards that can really hold up compared to him are Maradona, Di Stefano and potentially Messi.
