ok guys, i have heard many times from sky sports, that the prem has the best players in the world???

that they are the most skilful players ever???

i have a different view...........i find it poor quality football, not even close to the quality of football we had i the 70s :Thanks3:

todays players can hardly control a ball, the better wingers cant even cross a decent ball,

maybe i am becoming an old fart, i dont know?

what do you guys think of todays football in the prem?

Hard to say mate.

Modern prem footballers cover more than twice the distance their 70's conterparts did in a game.

Fitness and physcial preperation is much higher.

The game is played at a much higher rate. Players don't have the time on the ball they used to.

 

The result is much faster paced but maybe less visually appealing.

Kinda fits with the short attention spam generation we have now.

hi hazze,

you are right about the pace of the game, it is much quicker now, but surely this does not excuse the lack of basic skills for a footballer?

i watched a couple of games recently, and there were two bad tackles in the matches, but these bad injuries would not have happened if the guys had better ball control.

Time to change your team mate. At WHL i don´t wonder if they can´t control a ball. Look Anfield for the answer about the pl :Clap8:

I believe that the game changed a lot over the years and it can't really be compared with the game they played that long ago.

The players nowadays are more skilled and they run faster, while the players back then were true hard workers with a true heart for the team.

lack of skills players have nowadays! are you joking,i have seen some of the best goals ive ever saw in the premiership this year and 1 of them was from a defender from about 30 yards out on the volley now that is a skill in its self. The premiership has been the most exciting this year for the past 20 years it is close at the top of the table and close at the bottom,last year all the player awards went to ronaldo who is the best player i have ever seen,also the balls they use nowadays are easier to control than they were years ago so i dont know what football you have been watching recently but it defiently has,nt been the premiership if you think the players lack in skill!

i agree the game is much quicker now days, but there were many skillful players in the 70s, every team had one or two star players, even the lower teams.

some prem players lack the basic skills, that is for sure, defenders have been scoring goals as long as i remember, as for the balls being easier now days just backs up my arguement :Oops1:

I have been an Ajax fan all of my life. This team out of Amsterdam had a wonderfull team back in the '70 s.

When I look to the new Ajax, they still have a team with great players, but due to the money that goes around in the world of football it's nearly impossible to keep them together to have the same results as in those days.

Look at the international prizes in the last decade and you'll see that these came into the hands of the bigger teams with lots of money to go around.

To come back on your answer, I do believe that there are still lots of skilful players nowadays. Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and go further down the list, they all have a couple talented players on their payroll.

i was a big fan of the Ajax team in the seventies, 3 european cups i think it was?

it is very sad that the teams with most money seem to be the ones that win everything.

and of course there are skillful players in the prem right now, but i still think the overall standard of football was better in the 70s. :unsure::GoldenSmile1:

If I randomly rattle off a few names, Ronaldo,Giggs,Rooney,Tevez,Scholes. Lack of skill? Cant cross a decent ball? Cant control the ball?........I think just Giggsy alone answers this thread.

You asked if it was because you were becoming an old fart in the OP and I confirmed that for you. That, combined with your inane comment was the reason for the insult.

In a lot of ways the football in the 70's was better but they didn't have better players then, they were the same IMHO and there are just as many good players now as there was then, it's just the game was completely different.

I'm sure Drogba and a whole host of others would give him a run for his money. In case you hadn't noticed Ronaldo got voted the best player in the world. You're obviously a dipper fan.

To say that Ronaldo is not even in the top five best players in the world shows that you are a fool who knows little about football. From what I can see you know little about spelling and punctuation too. You are a deluded dipper fan who can't see past his own team and see that there are better players out there other than Gerrard who is no where near the best player in the world. According to you if a player scores free kicks then they shouldn't be credited as goals? You are talking shite.

 

I can see past my own team and I don't think Ronaldo is the best player in the world.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
