Jay jay okocha vs ronaldino : who is master dribbler?
Why compare these two players? Because Jay Jay Okocha is worthy to be compared with the best of the best. He is one of the top footballers from Nigeria and could have become a true celebrity on the global soccer scene. However, seems like he was hugely underrated, even though he has become the first black African footballer to receive the highest pay in the history. He has opened up the era for others to come and enjoy success and acknowledgement. It’s hard to say which one is better at dribbling as both of them are good at it.
Its Ronaldinho by a long mile. Who can forget in a hurry the 'snake bite' dribbling technique. Both of them were entertainers anyway, and thats where I'd rate Ronaldinho over Messi, the entertainment factor. He had a superb way of entertaining us without unnecessarily messing up or interrupting play.
The thread topic is asking for the "better dribbler". . . . . i.e they should be judged strictly on their dribbling ability.
you cannot use ronaldinho's achievement or productivity to judge who is better at dribbling. if the thread topic had read "who is the more successful or
productive player " that is when your assertions/logic becomes legitimate.
I will pick jayjay okocha,c0s he has done 1 amazing stuff in a live game dat r0naldih0 granny will neva think of doing , he dribble a keeper saw an empty net,buh didn't sc0re and they needed 2 sc0re @ dat point in time , he br0ught back the keeper ,dribble the defender and sc0red @ last , he also did amazing stuffs f0r my l0vely club bolt0n wanderers fc,he is a legend @ the club ! Plz if y0u are a bolt0n fan , plz kindly identify urself in the thrend i created ! Thanks ! Bolton 4 life !
okocha is the best because i have neva seen any one that plays football like him
creating skills, dribbling stars, even went ahead of bringing out a club that has been into relegation since wow hes so great and hes not even main to retire he is still young to retire thats my opinion on the other hand i only support ronaldinho because he is playing for my club recenly thank u
For me i think jay jay made big mistake of his life when he decided not to join ferguson at man.u. despite dat he could have been know far enough more dan dinho a.k.a feyinmusu, it does not mater if eyin being name world best that just his time and he used it very well. or how far can George Wear go on dribling? or tell me y haven't CR7 beign given oh oh!.lets be realistic; jay jay is a dribuller but not an achiver,its still affecting him,that is why some of his fans votes against him REPHACAUTION OF AFRICA MAGIC FOR FAME!
we are not talking about a better player,world footballer,africa footballer but a better dribbler,plz u guyz shuld go back to history okocha stunned the world with his amazing skills in 1994 blatter confessed to it dat he hoped nigeria shuld always qualify for the world cup, he is just not lucky to have won laurels with clubs or play for a bigger clubs.we have many players in his calibre but count demself unlucky nt to play for big clubs.remeber wat he did in germany,he is a legend and a master in dribbling.ronnie no near am at all,
and for dose comparing didier drogba,adebayor etc with jay jay in terms of dribbling shuld go and sleep dose players are goal punchers and not play makers dey shuld be compare with yekini.
i wont b suprized if som of u will say didier drogba is better dan yekini
one problem wit nigeria players is dat dey are in a rush to play in europe thereby dey make some silly mistakes with dere contract
okocha is no 1 ronnie dey follow am 4 back.
Flenjure man.You need am sha.
As per you and Jay-jay,sorry oh,but I'm tempted not to believe you.
afam4ever,the isi-ewu analyst.
It's you that is dumb.
You haven't answered any of my questions I posed you last time.So if you can't answer,then I can take it that you're the dumb one.
What do you mean by pride?You just throw words anyhow.
Can Jay-jay fit into the list dayokanu just put up?He even forgot Abedi Pele.Jay-jay play reach am?
Like I said,will you pay attention to someone who was good in only one area of say,JAMB-like Chemistry,or someone who has a high score in all the papers?Is there a university for people who did well only in Chemistry?You and I know very well that you CANNOT separate dribbling as an entity from Football as a whole.It is not Mutually exclusive.You no do set for maths?
I concur to your category of Jay-jay.Men he's so similar to those players oh!
Just like we get flashes of brilliance from Jayjay and loads of mediocrity most of the time.
Sektoiu is even better than Jay jay at least he plays for FC Porto which is a bigger club than all the five clubs Okocha played for Together.
Hidetoshi Nakata, Ali Daei, Ali Karimi, John Mosheu, Mamadu Zongo, those are in Okochas class
Who is better Quaresma or Okocha
Jasco my man,
Someone has to put the record straight with these people.
If it's me,so be it.
Some people want to be silly.
It's just like in a maths class;someone is saying he is the best in trigonometry.Another is saying he has the best results in mathematics of all the students.
Which one will you choose?And who will pay any attention to the one who is best in trigonometry alone?
Me sef, I realise I'm being quite silly continuing this debate.Thank you for admonishing me.It was just that I was idle and had nothing to do.
I know you did it as my guy.
So how's the new year so far?
PLS I DONT EXPECT U TO STILL BE AWAKE THIS TIME ANSWERING THESE BUNCH OF MEDIOCRES, I wonder how a right thinking person will be comparing MANDELA with OBASANJO,
In the hallfame of football,Nobody will ever mention JAYJAY, while RONNIE will always be remembered,Not because of his achievements alone but just because HE IS A WORLD CLASS PLAYER.
Ppple are jjust being sentimentally patriotic by choosing OKOCHA. Even MESSI can conveniently dribble a whole football pitch with his speed and aaccuracy, How many times has JAYJAY done thaat?We know he's exceptionally talented when it comes to ball joggling and dribbling but I BEG,Some pple pass am no be small.
What a load of rubbish!
Why are you talking like a dimwit?By God,it's 2009,the first decade of the new millenium is almost done and you're yarning harmattan dust.
If he was soo good,in dribbling,so much so he could dribble 11 players like one he-goat said,then he should be the world's best by now.
Agidi-jollof head,you can't separate a skill from an art.
Dribbling is NOT mutually exclusive from footie.
The great ones leave their mark:trophies.
If Jay-jay was so much an entertainer,then he should be in Nollywood or Nigezie,not soccer.
When jay-jay is mentioned,I weep with pity at a player with so much talent with almost nothing to show for it.
It's because of mediocres and sychophants like you that our own can never reach world standard.They hit it once with one sensational performance,and they have arrived.Nothing more to achieve,and the hullabaloo pressmen start chorusing their praises to high heavens.
2drama wah oh.Where were you when he was 18?Stop talking nonsense.Just because this is a free thread doesn't give room for misyarning.
Even iranians would argue Ali Daei is better than Zidane
Saudi would argue that Saheed Owairan is better than maradona
Sierra leonean would argue kallon is better than Ronaldo Lima.
Jay jay ko, Kay kay ni Is he even better than Saheed Owairan, Japhet Ndoram, kalusha Bwalya, or even Tarik Sektioiu.
The topic should be Okocha vs Quaresma
Shikadance Okocha was,is and will never be a better dribbler than Ronaldinho.ah wat are u talking about?it seems u guys only limit urselves to wat u are shown on NTA and dont go further.even if Okocha benched Ronnie in PSG that was when Ronnie was still a young player and Jayjay was more experienced abeg.please try face fact abeg.jayjay is Good fine but dont EVER compare him wit likes of RONNIE ah u av gone too far.pls try someone like Kanu against Jayjay next time, then we can argue, lol
why u dey mind these parochial pple.i wonder if they had TVs in their homes when RONALDINHO was in form.How dare u compare JAYJAY with RONNIE in anything.whether na dribbling,scoring,or free kicks,RONNIE PASS JAYJAY as my PAPA take pass me.
I believe the likes of AFAM4EVER only had access to RADIO COMMENTARIES those days that RONNIE dey in form.If not,u wouldn't dare compare a mediocre with an achiever.
Person wey dey sleep and person wey dey mortuary na the same thing.
I stand to be corrected sef,even ZIDANE,MARADONA,MESSI,PELE etc no fit get liver say dem reach RONNIE.No be now wey the guy don lose form,TO ME,HE REMAINS THE BEST FOOTBALLER OF ALL TIME.
Eastbay i lov ur last statement abeg,even let us forget about their laurels.pls teach me how to copy and paste pls i need to talk to some people who dare compare jayjay wit Ronny.how dare u.who is jayjay for christ sake.let me just ask them this simple question.if Jayjay were to be a cameroonian would you dare compare him wit Ronny?see, b4 u can see anyother player that dribbles like Ronny omo u go waka, lol
Don't know why i'm arguing with you.
Afam you deserve the title of Isi-ewu analyst of 2008.If the Premier League title isn't tangible enough then you must be either drunk or silly or both.Yet your Jay-jay played in that same league.
Why are you now getting into the argument of winning titles?
And your list of his 'titles' is a shambolic tattered one.
Turkish league:which great player boasts of that?
Atlanta:glorified u-23 tournament with no bearing on FIFA's rankings
Bolton,a force in the EPL:you must be smoking. Bolton never threatened a chamoions league spot.Is that your definition of a force?
BBC African Footballer of the year:
Why not the CAF equivalent?So all these are enough for a career for a person as talented as jay-jay?
You didn't even include CAN 94 title but because you're not open-minded,you forgot such a major title.
Check your facts.Ronaldinho confined jay-jay to PSG's bench when he arrived in 2001.Jay-jay eventualy had to leave for bolton because of lack of playing time.
Ronaldinho has a World Cup,A Champions League,two La-Liga titles(though afam will say it's not tangible),A Copa America title,Two FIFA world player of the year awards,A Ballon d'Or.
Compare with Afam's award list for his uncle Jay-jay.That's all his DRIBBLING could earn him.
Happy New Year to my sentimental folks
