Re: Unpopular Sport opinions
If goals to game ratios are so important, then isn't action man one the greatest players of all time then?
I disagree greatly with Cryuff being better than Pele too. As for Cryuff not being a striker? I personally don't like the classification of striker as there's too much ambiguity to it. I prefer to use the term 'forward', and Cryuff certainly was at least a forward, in that he player on the furthest line, be it in a 4-4-2 or a 4-3-3. He did drop back plenty and got involved in build-up play, and also in the Dutch Total football systems of the day, you could argue that no one attacking players really had set positions anyway. Also worth noting that Pele was very good in build-up play too, and got loads of assists as well as goals. He was a complete player.
