I do not think that it is right that LD said that he was better than TH...TH had accomplished more than LD...he should be humbler...TH played less tournaments also...I guess LD may not mean that way....hope not....at the moment, I think they are same level...

TH had accomplished more than LD...he should be humbler...TH played less tournaments also. Isnt this statement self contradicting since LD played more and won more tournaments?

The problem with LD is that, his winning streak has holes. In 2003 - 2004, he won many titles, then alas, out in the first round in the Olympics, losing to a non-top player (Taufik at least lost to the would-be champion); After the Olympics, he seemed recovered, winning many titles again, then alas, lost pathetically in the WC final; After that, he seemed to again recovered, finally getting the WC title, although the strongest non-Chinese opponent he met is Hafiz. Then at the end of the year, alas again. So, LD won many titles but had one big hole in his winning streak each year.
Therefore we cannot say "LD dominated the badminton world in 2004 - 2006". And LD will not be remembered long if he does not hit something big in the near future. So far he has not done much better than Peter Gade around 2000.

I really don't know what you guys are thinking... If TH in his current form could still comfortably beat LD, that would prove there is no hope for LD and there would be no point posting all those LD vs TH stuff.
Also, LD has been in the top circuit for quite some years. He was already technically a top player back in 2001. So 04 - 08 are really his best years. It's not like he is a newly released boy or something when he lost all those big titles.
As I said, so far LD has not been doing much better than PG during his top years. LD needs to grab his last big chance, which is 08 Olympics. In fact, he definitely should try to secure both 07 WC and 08 Olympics to join the elite group referred to as "legends".

LD is the most consistent winner in the badminton circuit. TH, LCW, PG and LHI are the occasional winners when LD feels the 'heat'.
To be a real champion, one has to win frequently like LD. LD will be remembered like Rudy Hartono, Alan Kopp, Eddie Choong, and others. I doubt TH or LCW will be remembered in the same vain unless they score consistently like LD.
Fame comes with consistency !

LD joined a lots tournament, that's way he can ranking no.1
Lin Dan Said: better than TH.. It is wrong...How come can said like that?? if Better why LD lost at Asian Games Man Single Final..
So another Records:
1. TH beat Lin DAN Always straigth set...
2. Lin DAN can beat TH straight set..
3. Lin DAN always lost to TH straight set...
4. Lin DAN lost to TH of the Important tournament (WC and Asian Games)..
So, Now I am totally agree TH said: Lin Dan Arogant.
Now The Titles:
1. TH got: Asian Games Titles 2002 and 2006
2. TH got: Olimpic title: 2004
3. TH got: WC title: 2005
So only All England don't have by TH.. So Later on TH got the ALL England Title.. He can claim 1 of the legend player... Nobody the legend like TH right now...So the Ranking not important for him...
So anybody can tell me: who can do Backhand Smash like speed 260KM/hour?? so I can say TH the complete player..
TH can use his backhand to attack the opponent....
Later we can see... the result of the Olimpic 2008, All England 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010..
TH want to depend his olimpic title and want to take the all england titles...
So I hope taufik can maintenance his personality (no smoking, do training fully, make motivation, etc)..

So your favorite YANG YANG.
FYI: YANG YANG lost to Hendri Saputra from Indonesia 2 times (all straight set)... So at the time the china coach said: YANG YANG can't beat Hendri Saputra..
But not lucky to Hendri Saputra.. after that he got sick 1 year (Hepatitis B), so he stop play badminton... Hendri saputra got a lots titles at the time for open tournament.
Now, Hendri Saputra is top coach in Indonesia. He coach at Tangkas Badminton Club.. He coach Hendrawan, Simon Santoso, Hermawan Susanto, Liliana natsir/Nova, Indra Bagus, etc..
so last time: Liong Bo assisten asked hendri to go china to join at china national player as head man single coach... but he don't want...
So last time: SBA director and Head Coach (singapore) Hamid Khan ask hendri also... but he also don't want...
If Hendri Saputra not sick at time.... Yang Yang and Zoa Jian Hua can win easier the tournaments..... this two players from China can't beat Hendri Saputra at time It is the China coach said.... is not me say OK... It information from china news paper and indonesia news paper at time....Hendri saputra still keep the news paper for him memory....
