Sergio Aguero has claimed that he is "the Che Guevara of modern football" and hopes to start what he believes will be a revolution when he joins Manchester City.

There has been talk about the Argentina international being Diego Maradona's son-in-law, and the Atletico Madrid man insists that it is unlikely any player will emulate the legendary former forward.

However, he believes that his ability and skill can bring about a revolution in football.

"No one will ever be exactly like Maradona again but I really think that every so often there is a total revolution in football and someone needs to be the revolutionary who starts things off. That's me,"

It's a bit hyperbolic, all this. How come it's been all Messi the last few years?

Ismael Klata, Thursday, 28 July 2011 12:52 (3 years ago) Permalink

I haven't seen anyone put him in the same bracket as Messi.

Still thinking that City aren't good enough out wide to win the title, but the spine of that team is amazing now, assuming that Joe Hart saves all his big fuckups for England.

"I really think that every so often there is a total revolution in football and someone needs to be the revolutionary who starts things off. That's me. Maradona made some 'noise' in his day and I want to roar a bit in my day - now.

"I like tricks, I like to dazzle, I like to be able to score a goal with one leg bent round the other so that you smack the ball into the net with your wrong foot. Dribbling and leaving your opponent on his backside is what life is for.

"If I achieve what I want to then I'll mark a distinct era in football. I'm the Che Guevara of modern soccer."

These papers just make up whatever the fuck they want and put quotes around it.

nasri/silva are better than ynahtid and chelsea's wingers

fullbacks aren't quite there but still better than liverpool and tottenham

Nasri and Silva aren't wingers though really

A bit disturbing, to me, that City now have more players I actually like than any other team in the Prem. Wonder if this means I'll be rooting for them to win the title? Dzeko, Kun, YaYa, Silva, Super Mario, Kompany all total bros.

there's that

And then there's the point that utd's and chelsea's wingers, and tottenham's fullbacks, are below standard for clubs of that level/aspiration

Sorry, what? You can put Nasri and Silva on some sort of purist pedestal, but i'll take the season Nani had last year over either of their's

nasri was better than nani last season, tho i rate nani above valencia/young

lol i didn't even check to see if i agreed with the statement

You're right, as wingers go valencia and nani over silva and nasri, apologies.

dunno has the standard been lowered but i rescind the point about utd's wingers, and submit that chelsea's lack of width would be commonly pointed out as a major failing

Valencia has fucked up his ankle again anyway, not that he was ever all that. Malouda's still really good.

boxall, Thursday, 28 July 2011 17:52 (3 years ago) Permalink

Malouda was pretty underwhelming last year from what i saw of him. Valencia has his limits but he was pretty damn good in the one full season he's had at Utd. Sad that he's injured again.

Number None, Thursday, 28 July 2011 17:55 (3 years ago) Permalink

kun put on his twitter that he's had no interviews since getting to engerland. so some cunt just made all that up, which is quite amusing really, in a way.

Ismael Klata, Thursday, 28 July 2011 19:26 (3 years ago) Permalink

Yeah if nothing else with 'one leg bent round the other so that you smack the ball into the net with your wrong foot' is a dead giveaway - I'm sure Aguero would know the word rabona, which is Spanish and was first used in Argentina.

i thought of one- veron

Were Zola, Gullit, and Vialli all well on the downslide when they came here?

But yeah Veron a good shout. He's a fucking great player and youse are all idiots.

What if City had managed to spend that £90m on kaka?

Ismael Klata, Thursday, 28 July 2011 21:50 (3 years ago) Permalink

veron was a fucking great player, i think i'd forgotten how good when he moved to ynahtid

probably about the same level as aguero

Close call that. Like Barca missing out on Beckham and settling for Ronaldinho(if that's what happened)

Tevez, though he's done everything possible to obscure the fact.

first time the epl has bought a legit world superstar?

― CH3C(O)N(CH3)2 (darraghmac), Wednesday, 27 July 2011 22:43 (2 days ago)

Overmars, Kluivert, Shevchenko, Gullit, Yaya, Barthez all CL winning superstars. Klinsmann, Robinho and Silva had played in a WC winning team, Gullit/Klinsmann/Pires/Silva/Schmiechal in a Euro winning team. Shevchenko had won Ballon D'Or. Ok he didn't have a great season before he left AC but it was still Shevchenko and people were still going ape shit. Also Crespo and Ballack not to be frowned upon. Most of these names didn't have great times in the Premiership, and may actually be a large part of the 'foreigners don't adapt well' myth but they were all legit world superstars.

But yeah super excited to watch this dude. Shame he had to go to a Mancini side but when he is fired in November and they hopefully get a manager whose tactics are worth watching, a team with him as the spearhead has real potential.

I am Louise Boat (a hoy hoy), Friday, 29 July 2011 06:02 (3 years ago) Permalink

Sorry Barthez (and Blanc! and Desially! and Thierry I guess) won the World Cup, not the CL. Although Desailly may have, I think! And Wiltord also won the Euro before being signed and although he came with a big reputation, wasn't a legit star. (See also: Malouda.)

I am Louise Boat (a hoy hoy), Friday, 29 July 2011 06:04 (3 years ago) Permalink

crespo and ballack better at time of move and bigger names than probably all of yr other entries there, tbh, save maybe jurgen.

The others were either past it, not there yet, or decidedly unglamourous/bit-part names in high-achieving teams.

I mean, wiltord? Schmeichel? You can't make a serious parallel here.

I think what Aguero is saying upthread is "I like to mix it up, I like to do stuff".

haha Can see the headline now "KUN SMANGS IT!!"

de jong, kompany, and micah richards(!) apparently not happy about Kun's contract. maybe this team will collapse before they even play a game.

Good luck any of 'em matching their current contracts elsewhere. Off you go.

Valencia is apparently going to be fit for the start of the season btw. Which is nice

Number None, Friday, 29 July 2011 13:20 (3 years ago) Permalink

De Jong, a star performer in manager Roberto Mancini’s midfield last season alongside Yaya Toure, who earns £200,000 a week, was believed to have been offered £80,000 a week.

Kompany and Richards also feel undervalued by their big-spending club.

Richards has been offered a five-year deal worth £65,000 a week while Kompany has been told to expect a four-year deal worth £80,000 a week. However, the pair are mulling over the offers.

MY WEEDS STRONG BLUD.mp3 (nakhchivan), Friday, 29 July 2011 13:21 (3 years ago) Permalink

richards and de jong are cunts but kompany is probably the second or third best cb in the league

Micah Richards is basically kept around as some link-to-the-past John Prescott figure by now isn't he?

Matt DC, Friday, 29 July 2011 13:23 (3 years ago) Permalink

agreed, at citeh he's prob undervalued at less than 100k, i like the other two but at that money they're doing well.

the best foreign player to arrive in england....none of bergkamp, henry, c ronaldo, rvn, drogba, torres etc were this good when they were sold to english sides

― MY WEEDS STRONG BLUD.mp3 (nakhchivan), Wednesday, 27 July 2011 22:28 (2 years ago)

ozil is probably at a slightly higher level now than aguero was when he joined city, but only because he is two years older

rn they are at about the same level

aguero forcing his way past big defenders is one of the great sights of the epl

carla jenkinvingne (nakhchivan), Sunday, 24 November 2013 13:53 (1 year ago) Permalink

Aguero tore EPL defences to pieces and won City the title two years ago. His lack of impact last season was mostly down to injury and Mancini being a cretin. He's on nine goals this season. Only Suarez is more dangerous right now.

Matt DC, Sunday, 24 November 2013 15:22 (1 year ago) Permalink

aguero is a better player than suarez

carla jenkinvingne (nakhchivan), Sunday, 24 November 2013 15:30 (1 year ago) Permalink

he should be the best player in the epl and he needs to show it

carla jenkinvingne (nakhchivan), Sunday, 24 November 2013 15:31 (1 year ago) Permalink

at 19 he was better than every current player apart from messi

also worth watching those highlights for ronaldinho's last moment of glory at barcelona
