The 23 year old Brazilian national team star's message in his native Portuguese translates as "Just dropped by to congratulate our king, the greatest of all time, our Pelé, and I'd like to thank him for all he's done for the world and for football. Enjoy your day!"

I wonder if Richie knows that he played at Goodison, which is more to the point, can you Twitter/Twatter him and find out?
Bobby @ 4, so you remember it well! :-)
Oh David, I meant to ask what is the prize, for this competition?

I didnt but my Uncle (he wasnt an actual uncle just my sisters Godfather who we called Uncle) did and he got his autograph on a tiny little notebook that he gave me just before he died. I wasnt even conceived until The Bee Gees era

I only discovered recently on these pages that they did the same to Chile Everton four years previously when the Brazil v Chile semi-final was moved from Viña del Mar to Santiago at the last minute. The bastards.
Best game I've seen live was Brazil 1 Hungary 3 in the pouring rain on a Friday night July 15th. Pelé didn't play as injured from the kickings Bulgaria had given him 3 days before though that was nothing to what the Portuguese did to him a few days later.
1970 was Pele's 3rd World Cup after '58 and '62. What a player. Still the best ever in my humble opinion.

Good to read some old memories. Next question Pele, Maradona, Ronaldo or Messi? Impossible.

It's a bit like Shearer, Owen, Vardy, Dean.
Or Boycott, Tendulkar, Richards, Bradman.
All great, but one far, far ahead of the others.

How did boring Boycott get on your ticket list before Cyril Washbrook?
