    Drugs aside, in his prime was better than any other player on the planet
    His 2 goals vs engurland in 86 were famous for 2 very different reasons

    I went to Argentina on honeymoon in 2008, visited La Boca. Its a kip but also a magical place... everywhere has his image, statue, murals... I'd say the whole neighborhood is in bits today.

    Jesus, that is a coincidence. Gazza might want to just go to bed for the rest of the day in case....

    People will probably tell me to get a grip but that news has really got to me, lump in my throat since I heard it.
    I idolised the mad little bastard when I was a kid, nobody could lay a glove on him on his day.
    What a player, rest in peace Diego.

    He was one of those people that no matter who you were or what your interest level in football - you knew who he was. He transcended his chosen field.
    The measuring stick by which all other head the balls will forever be judged.
    Scored the two greatest goals in world cup history, the hand of god and the one the English tend to gloss over where he made absolute gobshites out of about 27 of them.
    Never involved myself in the Messi V Maradonna debate, I just counted myself lucky to have seen both play.

    thanks for the memories Diego. RIP

    I heard it on Today FM in car and I was pissed off they didn't stop what they were doing and move straight to this. This is greatest player in worlds biggest sport. He was fat and on the decline when I started watching him so this news shouldn't really affect me but it does.

    Seen Babbs post and looked it up. Was shocked . I loved him. I loved him as a player and he was a crazy fucker as a a manger . When he went to Mexico he really changed the tram he managed.

    The best ones are always the crazy ones which go too soon from us.

    For me the greatest ever. A mad bastard that was sure to burn out quickly but this is quicker than I expected. Probably wouldn't be lucky enough to have Messi if it wasn't for Diego inspiring him.
    RIP.

    Always remember this game, the mighty Brazil and their only plan was to stop Diego and it still didn't work.
