Ed 007 if we lose tomorrow I'd just put your phone and laptop away and take a week off.

Anyway to get away from the gloom and doom I'm beginning to feel like I need counselling. I was just reading an article there about Maradona. I saw him play for Argentina against Scotland at Hampden in 1979 the year after Argentina won the World Cup when he was 19 and scored his first goal for his country. I travelled in myself on the train to see him because even at that stage he was being hailed for his talent.

I didn't see Pele in the flesh but I've seen some fantastic players over the years but Diego was beyond a doubt the best football player I've ever seen.

So lads whose the best player you've ever seen in the flesh and whose your greatest Celt. Two names allowed only no two from six Timallloy permutations allowed.

For me (1) Maradona and (2) Larsson.

{Ed007's Note - Maradona is by far the best player ever to play the game but I never seen him live. I really can't choose the best player I've seen live but Paul McStay is the greatest Celtic I've seen playing.}

Agree2 Disagree0

Ed McStay is next on my list. The best midfielder of my time and what many forget nice Paul was as hard as nails. I don’t think we’ve had anybody close since at splitting a defence with one pass.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

Kaka and Larsson for me JFP.

05 Dec 2020 18:30:42
I would say Messi is the best I’ve seen in the flesh.
He’s played against Celtic 6 times and scored 8 goals.
Messi has only scored more goals against Arsenal (9) in European competitions.
I’ve witnessed loads of great Celtic players in the last 40 years of watching Celtic and Larsson for me was Magnificent.

05 Dec 2020 18:38:47
Buzz ‘give me joy in my heart give me Larsson’!

05 Dec 2020 18:39:57
For me Maradona as great players need to do great things at international level, best Celtic player was George Connelly and was a tragedy for Celtic and Scotland when he walked away from football in 1974.

05 Dec 2020 18:43:44
Ronaldinho for me.

05 Dec 2020 18:46:08
Never finished reading your post jfp, Larsson too.

05 Dec 2020 19:00:16
Best Celtic players I've seen, McStay, McGrain and Henrik. Outside of Celtic the best I've seen is Messi.

05 Dec 2020 19:06:51
Inesta at celtic park just an amazing player with Paul Mc Stay the legend.

05 Dec 2020 19:08:24
Players I've seen in the flesh: 2 Celtic players, Jinky and Henki.

05 Dec 2020 19:18:18
Henrik and the maestro the Celts. Ronaldinho and messi in the flesh.

05 Dec 2020 19:51:44
Don't know who the best I've seen is as I've seen a lot over the year's Mcstay mcgrain and Burns are my all time hero's Larsson was different gravy but as a curve ball the best individual one off performance that always sticks in my mind was Robert prosineki what a player he was that night in paradise.

05 Dec 2020 20:16:29
Celtic won that night against Zagreb but then we got destroyed in the 2nd leg.
That would’ve been the first time we seen Viduka playing.

05 Dec 2020 20:50:25
I know we won the 1st leg but prosineki was still a joy to watch.

05 Dec 2020 20:52:28
Have to say messi for the best I’ve in flesh .

From Celtic players mcstay dalglish Henrik And Lubo
I’m my time with honourable mentions for McClair Nicholas (even though he’s a ahole) and big roy.

{Ed007's Note - I've seen CR7 and a young Giggs & Beckham, Ronaldinho, Zidane, Raul, Figo and Bobby Carlos win the CL at Hampden against Ballack, Paul Scholes & Keane being the best midfield pairing in Europe, Berkamp & Terry Henry, Maldini, Seedorf, Kaka, Crespo & Pirlo playing at Old Trafford........
It's so difficult to pick a best but I guess if you held a gun to my head I would have to say Roy Keane 😁 in all of God's creations he stands up there with anything...

05 Dec 2020 21:12:57
Prosinecki was one of the players I thought off.
He done okay for a chain smoker.

05 Dec 2020 21:37:48
Rafa van der vaart as an 18yr old at celtic park was unreal. Really thought he was going to be the best of his generation. Messi cr7 iniesta xavi all unreal. Big Ron. saw him at Barcelona and was mesmerised then managed to see him at old trafford for real madrid. Always remember nesta saying one of the best sights in football is ronaldo running with the ball.

{Ed007's Note - Van der Vaart was a player n his early days 👍

05 Dec 2020 22:25:43
Larsson for me. Can anyone remember Lisbon lions 25th anniversary game with man utd? Jinky Johnstone was still running rings round players.

05 Dec 2020 22:29:02
Jaw, Robert prosineki played for Barcelona in a challenge match in 1996 against Celtic at Parkhead and was head and shoulders above anyone on the pitch that night.

05 Dec 2020 23:39:52
For me scott brown. Some player.

06 Dec 2020 00:43:03
Best Celtic player I've seen is an impossible question to answer, but it could be anyone of Johnstone, Hughes, Connelly, Dalglish or Larsonn, best foreign player is Maldini, best non Celt is a guy called Hamilton, Willie or Johnnie or something, who played for Hearts, at the end of his career, I was young, and all I remember is he had a huge beer belly, but he could do things with a football that were amazing .

06 Dec 2020 11:37:33
Yes Phil jinks all time favourite the other answer is ithat could change every day as u remember certain games hh.

06 Dec 2020 12:15:52
I’m old enough to have seen Charlie Tully and he was a bit special, but the best display of football I’ve ever seen was Di Stefano in the 7-3 European Cup final at Hampden. I was in the old schoolboys’ enclosure and I can relive the buzz to this day!
