Default Lionel Messy Vs Christiano Ronaldo. Who Is Better?

Lionel or Cristiano? Ronaldo or Messi?
Clash of the TITANS!!!

The eternal question remains: who's better?
I expect a clash of Messi and Ronaldo fans here.

The winner will be determined by POLL for each.

Who'll win in speed?

Or in free-kick ability?

What about sportsmanship?

Will it be Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo?

Messi exerts more influence over more games. Ronaldo has been accused of being a ‘flat track bully’ in the past, effective in the lesser matches but disappearing when it really matters. This may be a harsh assessment, but Messi has produced more performances in the biggest games. The Argentinean scores one more point than the Real Madrid man and edges the battle of Messi vs Ronaldo.

So I'll go for Messi...

Though I like Ronaldo's game equally.
So no hard feelings, to Ronaldo's fans here.

I want to say Ronaldo. He's the complete athlete, scored over 100 goals in two seasons, is in my opinion a better kicker of the ball, and I'm not so fully convinced Messi could be quite as effective in leagues that recognize football as an actual contact sport.

That being said, I don't watch as much Spanish football as I did before I realized it was just a glorified Scottish Premier League. And that my disliking of both teams is quite magnanimous.

The only problem I have with that, is that he's an effeminate tosser.

Gareth Bale's still wearing training bras. They're not a C cup, B cup or A cup, in fact they've no cups at all.

and yes I know that equally applies to Arsenal players!

Default Re: Lionel Messy Vs Christiano Ronaldo. Who Is Better?

I personally think Messi is the best player ever, people say it is Maradonna, but I think Pele was better than him and I think Ronaldo is up there with the best, both he and Messi either score or create in almost every game they play in, I don't recall Maradonna having that sort of record and just being on the winning side of a World cup team, to me doesn't elevate him above others who play to world class standard week in, week out, he was brilliant though and these are just my opinions.

Default Re: Lionel Messy Vs Christiano Ronaldo. Who Is Better?

If Lionel "Messy" is really Messi, he gets my vote, if only for not personally appearing to be a bit of a spoiled brat.

Does he have any obvious personality flaws?


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