Zidane same flair, both are mids.

Sorry..but Zidane is an absolute original in his own right and has done things on a field that noone even tries. Latas is a boss...but Zidane is the absolute modern day great. We starting to get a lil' carried away now. Same flair..boss? Zidane will trap a ball with more flair than any player on the planet...forget about the rest of his game. Latas eh start to flick, cap and roly poly man like dat yet. And you ever see Latas butt a man in his chest like dat? steeups..Latas butt technique eh want nutten wit Zidane  ;D (is de ras)
 
Respek coach..If dat is what you think, cool. Cyah fault you for bigging up one of our own. But I really feel Zidane in a class above Latas

De little magician on he way out... missing him already.. no one quite like him nuh..

but can you think of any other player in football now who remind you of Latas??

for me, watching this man brand, vision and touches, its.. Ivan De La Pena
no one close enough but ball control and ability to weave in and out of players, kleb of arsenal has it talent.

I remember the first time I ever saw latas play for rangers, I think he set up marco negri in that game who was leathal in the SPL at the time.

All I have to say is Sando Tech!
The ball is like a magnet if you continue to knock it…it will attract, and then you can attack.  Get it?

I'm in Scotland at the moment and caught the extended highlights of Falkirk's game at the weekend. I could see why Beenhakker kept Latas on the sidelines at the World Cup - Latas literally walked around the field whole match.

But his goal was pure class. He received the ball at the edge of the box, twisted to make space between a couple of defenders and then curled a shot into the top corner from the edge of the box with absolutely no backlift. Kinda reminded me of Ronaldinho versus Chelsea 2 seasons ago...maybe not quite in the same category, but it still showed how much skill the man has, even at his age. And the commentators here in Scotland have nothing but respect for Latas.

and you are seeing him at 38 ....try to get the under 16 tournament in Trinidad when latas ruled the roost or highlights of the strike squad warm up games aginst teams from Finland, Russia, colombia etc. Could name some others but that will suffice

Jajay Okocha.....I always thought that he and Latapy played similar roles and had similar styles of football:

1. Very Central in their positioning for the most part

2. Good on the dribble, especially in small tight spaces where they could stand their opponent up, and throw him off balance with body fakes....  as opposed to blowing by defenders at speed.....

3. Great passers

4. Good shot on either foot

5. Not overly concerned with defending

6. Not too sure of this, but JayJay look like he's bun some good weed when he ready....

Another one of my favorite players.
A lil bigger than latas.
Latas' vision was second to none.
I would rate as high as or even higher than Zizou in that category.

Nothing pisses me off more than racism, and ppl who you know that act like they don't know you.

what about...... marcelinho carioca??

diminutive, extremely skillful, probably one of the best players in the world that never made a big name for himself on the european stage, and leads you to wonder what if he played for a big team... highly respected in his native brazil as one of their best players for a while...
