Completely pointless match
Messi for Leeds next year :)
Pele, Cruyff, Messi, Puskas, Ronaldo - Ronaldo , like Maradona is a selfish individual. However he would get on my list at 5. Maradona would not be in my top ten as he is a cheat
@139,He's referring to the goal he scored at Wembley you numpty.
Puskas and Pele were both better than either Messi or CR7. Some big differences between their stats the more recent "GOATs" include:1. Medical improvements. Pele was never the same after knee injuries. Today, he'd have been scoped and back at it in 6-8 weeks, good as new.2. Talent wasn't so concentrated. Several teams had 1 or 2 Galacticos. Now, some teams have 11.
@137,Are you kidding?The MOVE almost snapped both defenders' ankles, and WAS world class, but the shot was actually quite weak (not surprising, since he actually shot with his right boot, for a change). Lyon's GK got his hand to it and should have saved it, EASILY, but made a limp-wristed attempt at stopping it worthy of a pride parade grand marshall.
Ronaldo scores 2 headers(just) and a penalty and suddenly again he's the greatest player ever. The fact that Athletico Madrid were awful and the rest of the Juventus team put everything on a plate for him counts for nothing. Messi on the other hand ran the game and won the game largely on his own, but again that doesn't seem to count for anything. Ronaldo better than Messi ... give me a break!
Messi goal v spurs in the group stages at Wembley was one the best goal ever no goalkeeper could have save it the goal keeper never moved the ball rolled in to the net it was so delicate.
Hey 133, Ask any governing body of any professional or collegiate sport if human growth hormone is a banned substance. If you don't already know the answer, you're not so smart after all.
Re 133Simple. He hasn’t taken any banned, performance enhancing drugs. If he were, he’d be banned.Always has to be someone with a weird agenda...
@127. Set pieces? Do you watch football? Because you just said Ronaldo was better at set pieces.You know set pieces mean free-kicks, right? The ones where Messi' scores 7+ per season, whereas Ronaldo hits the wall 9 times out of 10. He has twice gone more than 50 free-kicks without scoring.Ronaldo is better at penalties, headers and throwing tantrums. Messi is better at football.
How does a player that has taken HGH since his early teen years for "short stature" even get in the running for GOAT? He's a great player no doubt.... but the greatest of all time? There needs to be an asterisk stating "while using HGH".
Not a bad wee player! Just lethal in every department. As for the Messi v Ronaldo debate, the only department Ronaldo beats Messi is heading. Two great players but Messi is a different league!
@127. Posted by rajvosaSo both Ronaldo and Messi don't make your top 450 or so of greatest players that ever played football.How dumb is that?Sure, Pele keeps going on about his WC wins but the WC is about team football. The term GOAT player is for the best individual player. George Best was up there but he had zero chance of ever winning a WC medal.
