    You don't remember him doing anything in a game that was remotely important..?

    Really pal?
    Correct.

    I'm sure this is the part where you tell me otherwise, but I doubt it's more than twice (whilst at Arsenal).

    Ok.. from the top of my head

    His first season, group stages in the CL when we hosted a Napoli side on a ridiculous form - he opens the scoring

    He opened the scoring at the **** hole up the road in the north London derby (last season or the one before that)

    His goals vs Chelsea, United, Liverpool, Bayern

    I can remember him assisting both goals at home to City last season

    Got that assist in stoppage time vs Leicester last season to win us the game

    While I have you here, what do you think the whole meaning of life is? In your own opinion.
    To attain the happiness that can only be found in the pursuit of materialistic wealth via rampant consumerism.

    He's a great player when you're 3-0 up against some Bulgarian post men, but I can't recall him ever doing anything in a game that was remotely important.

    If Arsenal were 1-0 down at the Nou Camp with 10 minutes left, would you back him to change the game? Would you ****
    He had plenty of big game performances last year, you're chatting *******s man

    Because you wouldn't be?

    Messi doesn't just score past you...that would be too kind.
    He makes you look like a Sunday League player while he does it...

    He just ripped the best team in the Premier league to shreds despite being half fit. It's a privilege just to watch him play, the game won't be the same when him and Ronaldo retire

    That's Messi for you - if you watch him you'll see how often he just walks around the pitch (Aguero is the same to a lesser extent). However he knows exactly when something is happening and just switches it on.

    He's always been better than Ronaldo in my eyes. Ronaldo has had a very poor start to the season and we wasn't overly impressive in Euro 2016 as a player. All footballers drop off quality wise before they retire - how long does Ronaldo have?

    I think Ronaldo's goal scoring exploits have overshadowed his diminishing performances in the last 18 months, yet he's still odds on to pick up he's second Balon d'Or in that time. Winning the major European trophies has also had a massive impact on how people perceive him.

    For me he's the greatest goal scorer of all time, but doesn't touch Messi in terms of GOAT status.

    Looking likely like it'll be 10 years since:
    -Kaka won the Balon d'Or, the last player to beat Messi and Ronaldo.
    -Someone outscored both in the champions league, which was also Kaka.
    I don't imagine we'll get a pair so dominant ever again, they've made people rethink of what's considered to be a top goascorer. Just look at Bale who comfortably averages over a goal every other game for Real, and that's neither here no there in terms of impressiveness.

    I think I know what you're trying to say, but Messi scores more & there are several players from the past with better goals to game ratios. Eusebio, Puskas, Peyroteo... & Pele :eek:
