Ronaldo is legendary. Yea Messi is super super good and many people have good arguments when they says Messi is the greatest BUT FOR ME Ronaldo is a legend of epic performances.

This is coming from a long time Barca fan. Ronaldo surprises me with his epic performances in huge games while Messi underperforms most of the season deciding games.

Messi is a better all around footballer though.

I agree with you. Ronaldo keeps surprising me. But Messi performs at such a high level on almost weekly basis for more than 10 years that we assume that's normal but what's showing is absolutely not normal. In terms of stats, Messi outperforms Ronaldo on almost everything. Messi also changed his role, from goal machine to a playmaker. Ronaldo just increased his efficiency
 
Don't forget about messis deciding performances during 2009-2015 where he was miles ahead of Cris. In the last years chris may have become the more effective on the cl stage but overall messi is still a bit ahead of him in my opinion. I would say messi is an Artist who makes the impossible things possible. Ronaldo is perfect Maschine without weaknesses in his game.

Two legends we should enjoy them, someday people will be jealous that they couldn't witness them like we did.

Ronaldo's weakness is Dribbling. He can't get past a decent defender if his life depends on it.

That's maybe be true, don't forget this guy is 34. For me Messi is still the GOAT, he is the best dribbler, passer and scorer that i've ever witnessed though. But i admire Ronaldo a lot.
 
Football was harder those days and he played in Italy most of his career, serie a was the best league then and was renowned for their defense.

Yes serie a was the best till the late 90's but i don't think that football in this era had more quality. Footballer nowadays have, due to the progression of science, much more possibilities to improve their body skills. They are faster, stronger and ect. We could argue about the technical level but therefore my knowledge is to little about this era. In the end of the day one can't compare two eras. I say messi dominated modern time football and maradona dominated the old era.

Anyway I hope for that midget that he don't disappoint me today

messi is number 2 for me. Much better than Ronaldo.


Maradona used to kicked all the time, not to mention he dragged argentina to a world, albeit while partially cheating. He also led them a second world cup final.

Messi can't do that. His all around game is second best to maradona, then third place is cr7.

I respect that opinion specially wjth the world cup argument but messi gave me the last 10 years so many moments waek in weak out
L, so i value him a little over maradona alone for his consistent performances over a decade.

Messi is the greatest of all time considering the fact that Maradona and Pele were both playing in era that lacked the physical attributes of the game. The defenders were slower, less athletic and prone to errors.

Nowadays, the game is very strict with physically strong defenders guarding the goal. Maradona wouldn't survive in this era imo.

People might criticize Messi based in his Argentina performances but he still got them to the world cup final and 3 consecutive copa America finals. The guy is super unlucky to not win a trophy for his country.

maradona played against better defenders than the jokers messi plays against today.

And football was much more physical back then, with defenders launching at players double foot.

Today's football is soft, a small contact, and messi gets a PK.

you have it backwards my friend.

youtube maradona and see how the defenders treat him and tell me if messi would have survived those, probably not, would have been career ending for him.

What exactly has Maradona done that's extraordinary during his career?!
He cheated his way to win the world cup. And his only other achievements are 2 Serie A league titles with Napoli.

He was a great dribbler but certainly not better than Messi in that department.

He cheated but that didn't win him the game, his solo goal did. He won the world cup for argentina, and brought them to a second world cup.

before he joined napoli, they were shit.

He was better than messi just by a small margin.
 
I agree with you Karim.

Sahib forget them they tried to use the same arguments to say the dumbest sports take ever, Lebum over the goat Mj:mahubowtf:
But yeah if you watch his footage you can see maradona was odiously better than Messi, the man could dribble through a whole team and a goalie :faysalwtf: like he didn’t even need teammates type of shit in soccer of all sports where teammates matter:ileycry: Messi has only won with a stacked team the equivalent of team USA in basketball of course he’s going to win:farole: Barca would still be good with out him but maradona could win games with scrubs:samwelcome:

exactly. Put messi in the everton or leicester of the premier league, and see if he can win them the league.

because pre maradona, that's what napoli was.

also maradona got tackled hard, defenders wanted to break his legs while messi is allowed space and time to dribble past players.

prime maradona in la liga today would have been better than messi.
