    Such a shame - 15 years to the day George Best died. Both shared several similarities, both on and off the pitch. Safe to say the 60 years Maradona had were probably pretty incredible. RIP

    So many of life's greats were deeply troubled. What a footballer. RIP

    As I wasn't alive to see him at his best all he is to me is a massive cheat and a drug abuser. Obviously I've seen his amazing goal against England and I'm sorry he's died but he's put himself in an early grave.

    ****'s sake, Tom. <laugh>

    You don't know even just a fraction of the truth behind what caused his addiction problems. Have a heart, man.

    Wow. Dripping with empathy there, Tom.

    Most of the time things exist between the black and white.

    He was another Gazza and Bestie to me a deeply troubled genius.

    I reckon Tom would break the record if we had a dislike button...

    I struggle to have much sympathy for people who have it all made for them, don't ever have to graft for anything in life and then blow it all on cocaine. It may sound harsh but I didn't have much respect for him when he was alive and I'm not going to be a hypocrite because he's died.

    What you makes you say he didn't have to graft in life?

    Wow.

    The majority of footballers in the game now cheat to some extent, it now is called being professional. He just happened to get away with it that's all.

    He was born and raised in a shantytown, I bet that nobody on here was.
