Barcelona's right to claim 'best in history' tag, says Murray

For those not in the know about Aussie sports broadcasters, Les Murray is the long-time champion of soccer/football in this country. His insightful comments and ability to break down the game for hardcore fans and newcomers alike has made him one of our favourites.

His new blog post about Barca's claim to being 'best of all time' does show his passion for the current team but as his following history lesson on the past 'best teams' shows, Barcelona does have a decent claim for the title.

Now to the comments section: as always with people commenting on articles like this, there are a mix of fan overload, unverified stats ("FC Barcelona is unique in football history with 65 to 70% possesion (sic) against any football team") and English football supporters who have stumbled onto the wrong site.

Still, the words of praise for Murray amongst all the flag waving proves again the esteem in which he's held.
