    I remember back in the day the fear factor of seeing Batistuta or Del Piero or one of the other truly great players of the time playing against your club in the CL. I think with the amount of access we have to watch any football in any country and endless clips of Messi etc on social media and YouTube it takes something away when you come up against them in competition these days. It was a real event back then, not only to see your team in action but one of the only chances you'd get to see just how good some of these almost mythical players were.
    This was the reason why World Cups and Euros were such a big deal back in the day. It was the only time you saw these famous names like Maradona, Papin, Baggio, Romario etc. We are literally spoiled these days.
