Default Ronaldo

To me he is the best player in the world at the moment.

One of the best athletes in the planet as well, here is a scientific documentary on him.

This is amazing stuff for coaches and young players.

Default Re: Ronaldo

Im a big fan of his work ethic, unlike Messi, Ronaldo says he likes to be the best at everything.

There is a story that when he was younger, living in the Sporting Lisboa Academy, he was about 15, they found him at 3am working out at the gym, and they asked him what the heck he was doing, that he was supposed to be sleeping, and he answered.

"I am training, I have to get more muscle bc I want to be the best in the world."

The mentality of these people is what makes them the best of the best

I'm still shocked that Isiah Thomas used a first rd pick on him. And then he choked his teammate. But he's always a Gamecock!

I like the fact that both C.Ro and Zlatan have the ability to great at all aspects, from the air and on the ground. While Messi is great, he's the size of an ant and his play in the air is laughable.

C.Ronaldo, Zlatan, and Bale have all emerged as the 3 best. Messi is just fortunate to have great talent around him and to have played with most of his team since being a teenager.

Messi is a dribbling machine with tremendous ball control and a very accurate mid range shot.

the athletism of messi is prob above average but his technique is what makes him a great player.

messi reminds me of allen iverson, no the most athletic but still great players for their size.

Messi is great. IMO, he is better than Ronaldo at this moment. Of course, there are players that were better than Ronaldo in their prime such as Beckham, Ronaldhino (sp), Zidane, Carlos, etc. Ronaldo is a flopper, but he has unbelievable ball control

I've always like C.Ronaldo but I have to admit I used to get irate with his flopping and whining. I'm glad he has calmed down on that aspect of his game. His ability is truly fascinating. It will be interesting to see if he plans to stay at Real.

You were doing so well until you added the Beckham part. Beckham has always been a great set piece scorer but the rest of his game was average or above avg. Zidane was a beast and Ronaldinho was great with his feet but his overall ability isn't on par with C.Ronaldo.

Beckham is great at set pieces, but have you ever watched him as a distributor? He can drop the ball on a dime anywhere on the field. It is unreal. That is what makes him a great midfielder

Yes, if you compare him to Ronaldo's ability to strike, score, set pieces, headers, his scissors when on the ball, it's not even close. Ronaldo is unique in having the total package of skill, speed, and size. I will say, Zlatan can and has done some amazing things.
