I would disagree that its impossible to play better than Messi.I think to play the game better than Messi is actually a physical impossibility. So I guess you're talking about achievements. Maradona was able to lift a World Cup.
People felt the same about Pele and Maradona. They both pass the eye test the same way, even if Pele in particular played a different style of football.
I wouldn't even say Messi is the player who has looked most unplayable in my lifetime. Fat Ronaldo pre injuries was scary, even more than Messi.
Messi is beautiful to watch, he's effective as fuck, his personal stats and consistency are incredible, and he might be the goat. But, he's not incomparable. He has a select few peers. Imo.
