Right so, I think we have seen Messi in his prime now. So who do you prefer.. Messi or Ronaldinho?

Personally, I prefer Ronaldinho, even though Messi is a goal scoring machine in his prime where everything he does is close to perfect, I found Ronaldinho so exciting to watch. I personally think Ronaldinho can do everything Messi can, and offer a lot more to the game in terms of skill

What do y'all think?

Ronaldinho was more unpredictable, spontaneous, gung ho and improvisational. Messi is more effective and more of a machine.

It's not close though, Ronaldinho wasn't consistent enough. Messi is a monster and superior in every aspect of attacking play other than stupid tricks that people can copy and post on Youtube.

Ronaldinho. Short prime but he was the best when he was at his prime.

Ronaldinho was a magical player in his prime. Amazing to watch and did things with the ball that others couldn't do and still can't do this day. However overall, I'd have to give to Messi. Messi is better in most aspects of the game and has been more consistent.

qua will probably be here sooner or later to give a detailed answer

Just to add to my point:- Messi has had a lot more talent around him whilst being nurtured into the best. I know similar can be said about Ronaldinho but I think the Messi era barca side are a lot stronger than the Ronaldinho era barca side

Messi for me. Ronaldonho at his best was up there but he was inconsistent and his career at the top was relatively short

Ronaldinho was a great player but it's fair to say Messi will become one of the greatest players ever and for that reason I'm going him

Iniesta by a country mile for me, Pirlo benefiting from being underrated in England for most of his career. People now overcompensating. Surely Xavi/Scholes v Pirlo is the more natural comparison though? Xavi is the best of those 3.

Defo, thank goodness you agree. Iniesta is absolutely amazing - my friend thinks otherwise which is why I just had to ask.

And yeah, sometimes we forget that the xavi that we watch today is 30+. When he was in his 20s.. DAMN

This.


Although Ronaldinho's prime lasted only 2 years, its fair to say that during those 2 years, he's the best thing to have ever come out of football. The whole world would just stop and stare to see what he'd do next
