Both are brilliant footballers though. Why put one on a pedestal?

People always compare things and try to make out ones better than the other, a bit like which is better, the UK, or Australia.

Messis only flaw is that he is brilliant nearly all of the time, lol

Agreed.

Anyway, Robin van Persie is better than the pair of 'em.

I prefer to watch Messi, but I feel Ronaldo's the better player as he's been a fantastic player in 3 different leagues.

Your reason there and I see him as complete.

6ft something
Strong as ****
Athletic
Rapid
Scores from wherever he wants
Played in several, very different leagues.

I think Messi is class, undeniably one of the greatest of all time with Ronaldo etc...but I think he'd ****ing hate going to Stoke on Boxing Day and getting seven shades of shit kicked out of him, no space, much more physical contact, no time etc. Ronaldo seemed to thrive sometimes in those situations.

Still. Purists will argue the complete opposite is what matters....

Agreed. That settles it.

Now, who is better? Joey Deacon, or Nani?

Well Nani is a bit of a Joey....so Joey Deacon for being the original?

What about Carrick vs Huddlestone

He's faster and better at dribbling too.

Carrick brings new meaning to the word "mediocre"....
